Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Walter George (standing, fourth from right), Capt. Donald Bloomquist (standing, second from right) and Sgt. James “Jimmy” Ray (standing, far right) of Henrico received the commendation from Cantor.

“As we celebrate Veterans Day, we pay tribute to the brave men and women in uniform who have defended our shores, preserved our freedom and promoted liberty since the founding of our nation, and we pray for those currently serving who are still in harm’s way,” Cantor said. “We also recognize the sacrifices made by our military families. Their support during and after service and deployments is invaluable to our troops.

CMoR reopens at new Short Pump site

The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10.

The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.

Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot
