National soccer group locates in Henrico County

Henrico County and the metro Richmond area have gained a well-earned reputation as a hotbed of youth soccer in recent years.

That status has been bolstered this year by the addition of the headquarters of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL).

Currently in its fourth year of operation, the ECNL is a girls-only league comprised of 78 youth soccer clubs in 27 states across the country spanning from California to Massachusetts. Each club competes in one of eight conferences and has five separate age-group teams, with ages of players ranging from 14 to 18.

Online puppy scammer used Henrico address

At least two consumers who recently responded to the bark of an online ad were bitten in what appears to be a puppy-marketing scam.

The consumers spotted ads for puppies on an online classified site. Upon calling the telephone number listed, the consumers were instructed to forward funds to cover shipping and insurance. In both instances, after sending $250-$823 the consumers were contacted again and told there were health issues with the puppies. Both were asked for more money.

Raising funds while raising pints

By just about every measure, Capital Ale House has succeeded spectacularly in the 11 years since its founding.

In 2002 the venture began with one downtown restaurant and the concept of pairing craft and imported beers with local and European cuisine. Within a decade, the business expanded from one location and 40 beer taps to five locations in Richmond and across the state, boasting 360 taps and more than 300 employees.

Real estate rebound?

As the summer real estate market picks up, homeowners looking to move in Henrico County will see higher prices and faster sales compared to last year.

“It’s a definite seller’s market,” said Rodney Chenault, a co-owner of Hometown Realty, and the managing broker of its Twin Hickory office. “That’s created by low supply and high demand.”
