The Henrico County Public Library system will host three "death cafés" – gatherings during which attendees can discuss death and dying in what the library terms "surprisingly upbeat and informative guided discussions" led by spiritual and bereavement counselor Alane Miles.
The events will provide attendees the opportunity to ask any and all questions about the topics of death, dying, grief and funeral practices, in an informal setting. Miles has 20 years of experience in the hospice field, hosts the Death Club Radio show on WRIR and writes for Style Weekly. Registration is not required. > Read more.

Boyle falls 4 signatures short of qualifying for November special election
By Tom Lappas, Citizen Editor 06/17/2014 Henrico Schools
UPDATE: JUNE 17, 10 A.M. – A longtime Henrico teacher and a Glen Allen dentist will compete in a special election this November for the right to serve the final year of a four-year term on the Henrico County School Board, after the interim representative failed to submit enough acceptable signatures to appear on the ballot.
Short Pump Elementary School intervention teacher Michelle “Micky” Ogburn and Glen Allen dentist Surya P. Dhakar are seeking to serve the final year of the Three Chopt District board seat that Diana Winston won in 2011 and from which she resigned last August. They will face each other in a Nov. 4 election.
The interim Three Chopt District board member, attorney Robert G. Boyle, Jr. (who was appointed by the board in October) fell four signatures short of qualifying for the ballot, when Henrico Registrar Mark Coakley's office disallowed 57 of the 178 signatures he included with his filing. > Read more.
