CareMore opens in Northside
Officials from CareMore and HCA Virginia gathered Oct. 11 to mark the grand opening of the CareMore Care Center in Northern Henrico, one of four new locations locally for the centers, which are owned by Wellpoint, Inc., the parent company of Anthem. The centers will accept only Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare patients. The grand opening took place at the center at the Brook Run Shopping Center on Brook Road.
CareMore centers are designed to provide coordinated care plans for patients with multiple doctors and have specialized programs to help those with chronic conditions (such as diabetes or congenital heart failure), as well as mental health programs and other social services, such as seminars on phone usage and "Nifty After Fifty," a fitness program. The centers do not replace the role of a patient's primary care physician, however.

Pelon’s serves up a good mix of variety, value
I first stumbled into Pelon's on a Wednesday night, lured by the promise of $2 tacos and beers. At those prices, I had assumed the place was a hole in the wall, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, pleasant interior.
Having spent my teen summers in Virginia Beach surfing, I also felt instantly at home amid the ocean-themed decor. From the ride-the-waves posters lining the walls and the TV displaying non-stop surfing footage, to the foosball table and enormous spools serving as tables, Pelon's is a delight for beach lovers and surfing fans. Reading the menu is part of the entertainment here, as patrons browse burrito choices that include Rip Tide, The Curl, Hawaiian Pipeline and Big Kahuna. > Read more.
