Rock on!

This rock was spotted near Libbie Mill Library, and there's a slideshow of many more uniquely-painted stones on the RVA Rocks Facebook page (https://facebook.com/groups/RVARocks/).

Bass fishing league tournament coming to Henrico


The 2015 Walmart Bass Fishing League season will visit Henrico County on Saturday, July 25, when the Shenandoah division takes on the James River. As many as 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing for top awards of up to $8,000 and $3,000 respectively in the one-day event.

The event will launch from Osborne Landing in Varina. Anglers will be seen targeting bass in summertime patterns on the main river in areas that include natural cover, like rocks and brush piles. Jigs, square-billed crankbaits and ChatterBaits will be popular at this point in the season. Previous winners on the James River also have found success with buzzbaits in the grass marshes on the lower end of the river. A 15-pound five-bass limit will most likely be needed to win this tournament, according to tournament officials.
