Henrico County VA

Election 2011


Henrico voters will cast their ballots for a number of local and state candidates Nov. 8, although most races offer little or no competition. But voters will have choices in four county races, as well as a race for a House of Delegates seat. The Henrico Citizen invited each of the 35 candidates for county or state offices who appear on the ballot in Henrico County this year to respond to seven general questions about their views, goals and personal lives. Each was permitted a 500-word response to the questions. The answers of those who responded by the deadline provided to them appear in this section. Some responses were edited to fit the 500-word requirement.

Canterbury Recreation Association ‘wins’ the ‘Dunk Hunger’ drive


For the third consecutive year, the Canterbury Recreation Association in Short Pump donated the most meals to the fourth-annual "Dunk Hunger" campaign, which raises money and food donations for FeedMore's Central Virginia Food Bank. Swim teams and community pools throughout the region combined to raise the equivalent of 77,404 meals this year, with the Canterbury group earning the Gold Medal, with 17,454 meals contributed.

CRA will earn a winners’ bash Aug. 24 from 3 to 5 p.m. at its pool on Pump Road.

“Our pool has adopted Dunk Hunger into its culture with fun ways to raise food and funds," said Canterbury’s Dunk Hunger chairman Jack McSorley, a Freeman High School junior. > Read more.

‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’ surprises, delights

Have people in the United States even heard of Shaun the Sheep? I certainly hadn’t.

I walked into Shaun the Sheep Movie knowing precisely two things about the film: one, it’s the product of Aardman Animations, the stop-motion animation studio responsible for Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run. And two, it’s got a cartoon sheep in it. That’s it.

But walking out, I was a total Shaun the Sheep convert – blown away by Shaun the Sheep Movie’s unassuming, good-natured, sheepy charms. (Also, it turns out Shaun the Sheep – originally a TV series – used to air on the Disney Channel. Maybe I’m just out of the loop). > Read more.
