Henrico CASA welcomes new volunteers


Henrico County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) welcomed 11 new advocates earlier this month. The volunteers were sworn into service by Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Chief Judge Stuart L. Williams, Jr. April 5.

CASAs gather information to supplement what is already provided to the court to help portray a more complete picture of each child’s circumstances. A child’s future depends on that judge’s decision, and a CASA volunteer helps make sure that decision is in the best interest of the child.

Henrico Democrats nominate Lynch, Rodman

Candidates will seek seats on Board of Supervisors, in Virginia House
APR. 29, 6:15 P.M. – Henrico Democrats today selected their party's nominees for the Brookland District Supervisor seat and the 73rd District House of Delegates seat during a party caucus.

Courtney Lynch, the founder of a leadership development company, was somewhat of a surprise winner in the Brookland District supervisor's race. She defeated Virginians for High Speed Rail Executive Director Danny Plaugher, who had been the party's nominee two years ago in the general election for the seat.

Debra Rodman, a Randolph-Macon College professor, earned the party's nomination for the 73rd House District seat, defeating Chelsea Savage, a nurse, in a runoff. Attorney Sarah Smith was third and Bill Coleman, a project manager for a health organization, fourth.

Therapeutic healing

Support group offers teens help, hope through art

In a room labeled the garden room, a bright space with lavender-colored walls and pebble-gray chairs, art therapist Becky Jacobson might ask her patients to imagine a safe place, but she doesn’t ask them to describe it to her — she wants them to draw it.

The patients are free to draw whatever they envision, expressing themselves through their colored markers, a form of healing through art therapy.

“Some people might not feel safe anywhere because they have had hard things happening to them, and I have the background to help that person reground and feel safe in the group,” Jacobson said.
