Henricopolis SWCD honors its stars at Assemblage


A century or so ago, Henrico County was known as the Dairy County of Virginia, and one of the largest dairy operations was centered at the Dorey family's barn in Varina.

On Jan. 7, the barn – now the site of the Dorey Park Recreation Center – was transformed into an art gallery, and its rafters hung with colorful student art work depicting nature scenes.

Marriage, death, divorce certificates now available at DMV centers


Virginia death, marriage and divorce certificates are now available at all DMV customer service centers and DMV 2 Go mobile customer service centers, as an expansion of the partnership between the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH)’s Division of Vital Records.

In the partnership’s first phase, birth certificates became available at DMV customer service centers in March 2014. Since then, DMV has issued more than 180,000 birth certificates, and the partnership was recognized with a Governor’s Technology Award presented at the annual Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium in Richmond last year.

Several key seats up for grabs in Nov. 3 election


Henrico voters will go to the polls Nov. 3 to cast their ballots in a number of local and state elections, including several key races that could change the shape of local leadership.

All 10 seats on the Board of Supervisors and School Board are up for election, and five are contested. Perhaps the most notable race is taking place in the Three Chopt District, where three men are vying to replace longtime Republican Supervisor Dave Kaechele, who is retiring after 36 years and nine terms on the board.

Kaechele’s choice to replace himself on the board, Planning Commission member Tommy Branin (also a Republican) is opposed by Democrat Bob Shippee, recently retired from an analytical role with Capital One, and independent Eric Rohnacher, a financial advisor.
