Help for those who need it most


Greater Richmond Stop Child Abuse Now, or SCAN, opened a Satellite Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in Henrico County March 15, and it’s a big deal.

Why? Consider this fictitious scenario.

Shelly is 8 years old. Shelly lives with her parents and her 19-year-old uncle, Nate.

Shelly decides that she doesn’t feel comfortable when Nate touches her where her bathing suit covers, so she tells her school guidance counselor. Being a mandated reporter by law, her guidance counselor alerts Henrico Social Services officials to the situation.

‘Henrico In Motion’ bike event scheduled for May 14


The Henrico portion of the Virginia Capital Trail officially opened last fall along Route 5, and bikers, runners, walkers and others quickly have turned it into a preferred mode of transportation through Eastern Henrico.

But there’s one last unofficial portion of the trail that will open to the public for the first time next week, and Henrico County officials are planning to celebrate it in style.

They’ll join with members of the public at Dorey Park Saturday, May 14, to dedicate a trail marker and the 0.4-mile connector trail that links the park to the Capital Trail. The event is part of Henrico In Motion, which also will feature a BMX Pros stunt show, a bike safety rodeo, live music and other events.
