Spreading Christmas cheer

Henrico Christmas Mother program working hard to make holiday magic
On a chilly November evening, cold rain pounded against the large metal warehouse in eastern Henrico County that serves as the base of operation for the Henrico Christmas Mother program.

Inside, volunteers were wrapping up another long day as the massive holiday program kicked into high gear for 2015. Small mountains of boxes filled with new toys lined the walls of the warehouse.

Finding and buying the toys takes technology-supported organization, frugal volunteer shoppers and a passion for finding perfect gifts for lots of little girls and boys. > Read more.

Student seeks new name for Byrd M.S.

Namesake's support of 'massive resistance' cited as reason

Metro Richmond has a rich racial history. One man, Arthur Ashe, has been a point of pride for the region – his statue sits on Monument Avenue in Richmond to commemorate his courage in breaking racial barriers during his unprecedented tennis career.

Another man’s name adorns the front of a Henrico school, but some citizens aren’t as willing to celebrate the history he contributed.

Harry F. Byrd Middle School, part of the Henrico County public school system, is named after the 50th governor of Virginia, who also represented the state in the U.S. Senate for 22 years. > Read more.
