Keep Henrico Beautiful honors attractive residential, business properties
The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee has selected the winners of its annual awards that recognize residential and commercial properties that are attractively landscaped and maintained.
The 2012 Land Lover and Clean Business awards will be presented to the 10 winners during the Board of Supervisors meeting tonight. The recipients, who represent a residential and a commercial property from each of Henrico’s five magisterial districts, also will be commended with signs placed at their properties.
The winners of the Land Lover award for residential properties are Andrew and Linda Young of the Brookland District, Norman and Margaret Jones of the Fairfield District, Charlotte Bales of the Three Chopt District, Marti Proctor of the Tuckahoe District and Sue and Allen Wimett of the Varina District.
The winners of the Clean Business award are Ray’s Italian Water Ice of the Brookland District, BB&T of the Fairfield District, BB&T of the Three Chopt District, Rivah Flowers and Gifts, Inc. of the Tuckahoe District and Varina Veterinary Clinic of the Varina District.
The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee has presented the awards annually since 1995 to promote high standards for property maintenance. To be eligible for the Land Lover award, residents must perform their own landscaping and lawn care. Nominees for either award must participate in a recycling program, such as composting, curbside pickup or drop-off service.

‘Jingle All the Way 2’ is expectedly flawed
If not, you can be like the rest of us and curse Santa for his folly in creating such a film. Santa, we neither wanted nor needed this.
A follow-up to the much-derided 1996 Christmas film Jingle All the Way, Jingle All the Way 2 isn’t so much a sequel as it is an odd kind of remake, offering a few original twists on the original’s dad-vs-dad holiday showdown, but also copying large chunks of the original without alteration. > Read more.
