Canine commitment

Henrico woman assisted by companion dog

Sixty-one year-old Debbie Hart-Bowley of Henrico suffers from a neurological movement disorder that limits her mobility. But she has gained some of her freedom back after being paired with Fletch, a young Labrador/golden retriever mix through Companions for Independence.

Fletch can open doors, turn light switches on and off, assist with transportation and pick up dropped objects; Hart says he’s a perfect match.

“Fletch is laid-back and just loves moving at my pace, which is important because my health has slowed me down,” she says. “I can do so much more when he is helping me, and I save time and energy. I am no longer sitting looking at four walls; Fletch has helped me enjoy life again.” > Read more.

County to consider selling surplus land

Henrico County officials have conducted an extensive review of all county-owned properties and are recommending the sale of five small parcels as the first step in a plan to eliminate surplus sites.

County Manager John Vithoulkas has sought to shed excess county-owned land since he took over as county manager last January.

Selling excess property would return it to the county's base of taxable land and relieve the county from maintenance costs at the same time, Deputy County Manager Tim Foster told the Board of Supervisors during a Feb. 11 work session. > Read more.
