Country Style Donuts to open West End location

The “King of the Doughnuts” is expanding his territory. Zouhair Nasserddine, owner of Country Style Donuts in Eastern Henrico, has announced the opening of a new store in the Gold’s Gym Plaza at West Tower, 8900 W. Broad Street.

Nasserddine, a native of Lebanon, earned the regal nickname while working for Dunkin’ Donuts in the 1970s.

“The owner saw him making doughnuts one day and called him the King of the Doughnuts,” said Nasserddine’s wife, Waswa. She says that the owner declared, “We can’t ever let this guy go!’” > Read more.

Bill seeks adjacent graves for pets, owners

Virginia codes currently prohibit animals and humans from being buried together in the same cemetery, but one delegate hopes to change that with House Bill 588.

Delegate Israel O’Quinn, R-Bristol, proposed HB588 and if passed it would allow pets and owners to be buried together under certain circumstances. Inspired by a retired police officer wanting to be buried alongside his dogs, the bill is already gaining support from pet lovers and cemetery owners. > Read more.

Officials to consider proposals for central police precinct

UPDATE: FEB. 11, 8 P.M. – Henrico County last month received an unsolicited proposal from a private company that is offering to construct a Central Henrico police precinct on Villa Park Drive (near Parham Road and Route 1) and then lease or sell the facility and 4.2-acre site to the county.

The Division of Police has sought such a permanent facility in the central part of Henrico for six years. Its current temporary precinct in the region opened last year inside the Virginia Center Commons mall and is operating there on a two-year lease.

The county's Board of Supervisors tonight unanimously accepted the proposal and now will accept other proposals for a police precinct from interested companies during the next 45 days. Then, a committee of county officials will consider all proposals and make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors, which could accept one or reject them all. > Read more.
