‘Top Teacher’ Stein to appear on Rachael Ray Show

Ryan Stein, a teacher at Pinchbeck Elementary School and one of the Henrico Citizen's Top Teachers for 2011, will appear on the Rachael Ray show Oct. 6 after winning one of five grand prizes in the nationwide "Back to School in Style Makeover."

The show will air locally at 2 p.m. on NBC-12.

The contest, a partnership between Rachael Ray and the Jones Apparel group, awarded grand prizes that include a wardrobe from Jones New York and Macy's, a makeover that will be revealed on the Rachael Ray Show, school supplies from Office Max and Adopt-a-Classroom, and cash for the school.

Stein – who was nominated for the award by a friend – flew to New York Sept. 18 to tape the show.

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 facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. 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.

Minion mania

Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot
