Henrico school buses with compliance issue to be fixed this summer


The 176 Henrico school buses that have been purchased since March 2011 will be fixed during the summer, Henrico Schools spokesman Andy Jenks told the Citizen. The bus manufacturers will retrofit the buses at no cost to the school division, he said.

The brake interlock device is required on all automatic transmission buses in Virginia that were purchased after March 2011, which is when the device was added to the state Board of Education's requirements for school buses. As many as 4,000 school buses in the state may be affected, according to the Virginia Department of Education.

Business in brief


The Greater Richmond Partnership has announced that Kels USA Corporation has chosen Henrico County for the location of its expansion to the United States. The electrical contact material company has started business with a small sales office with plans to expand to manufacturing their products locally in the next 2-4 years. The Partnership first met with Kels during a marketing mission to Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade fair. Subsequent meetings and visits followed, including three visits to the Richmond Region and three to the Kels headquarters in Brazil during marketing missions. Before choosing Henrico, the company considered locations in Illinois, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Georgia. Kels cited their main reason to expand to the U.S. is for market entry and proximity to the current customers to provide better service. Kels, founded in 1976, manufactures metal-based products for the electro-electronics, automotive and appliance industries. Kels also plays a great role in refrigeration, tooling and metallurgical industries supplying brazing alloys. By 2019, the company estimates that it will be successful enough to expand its facility to a 100-person manufacturing center.

Actor Kerrigan Sullivan will present “A Song in the Wilderness,” a 45-minute one-woman show that offers a dramatic exploration of the life and experiences of Gene Stratton-Porter, at 8 p.m. at CAT Theatre, 319 N. Wilkinson Rd.

Born in 1863, Stratton-Porter was an accomplished writer of fiction and non-fiction. She was also a celebrated nature photographer and an early naturalist. She was one of the first women to form a movie production studio.

“A Song in the Wilderness,” written by Larry Gard, was first produced in 1993 as part of the annual Performances in the Humanities program of the Indiana Humanities Council, and starred Marcia Quick Gard as Gene Stratton-Porter. The show toured Indiana under the same banner during the spring of each year, through 1997. It was also produced for a festival about women in science at the Science Museum of Virginia in 2002, featuring the same actress. The 2017 production is offered in memory of Marcia Quick Gard, who passed away on Dec. 16, 2016.

Tickets are $12. The performance will include a reception and talk back with the production staff after the show. For tickets and details, visit http://www.cattheatre.com. Full text
