Boyle opts not to appeal registrar’s ruling

Interim Three Chopt District School Board member Robert Boyle will not appear on the November ballot in a special election for the final year of the Three Chopt seat, after he chose not to appeal the decision of the Henrico Registrar’s Office to invalidate 57 of the 178 signatures he submitted while attempting to file for the election earlier this month.

Political newcomers Micky Ogburn, a Short Pump Elementary School teacher, and Surya Dhakar, a Glen Allen dentist, will face off in the Nov. 4 election to serve the final year of a four-year term that Diana Winston won in 2011 and from which she resigned last August. > Read more.

When the Coal Pit Learning Center opened in 1976, it was the vision of Dorothy Gallimore to provide children from low-income families with educational skills and a sound, safe environment to succeed in school. Almost 40 years later, it has transformed from an aging schoolhouse to a multipurpose facility that has doubled in size as the result of a budding relationship between Coal Pit and the Innsbrook Rotary.

“Innsbrook Rotary is a big believer in supporting issues with children, and when we learned about Coal Pit, we thought that was a great entity to support and we saw an opportunity to help the center grow,” said Wes York, Innsbrook Rotary president. > Read more.
