Brat, McEachin highlight importance of bipartisanship

Though they come from different sides of the aisle, two Virginia congressmen came together for a moderated discussion on entrepreneurship and economic growth. U.S. Reps. Dave Brat, a Republican from Glen Allen, and A. Donald McEachin, a Democrat from Richmond, highlighted the importance of bipartisan cooperation in moving Virginia and the nation forward.

Henrico recognizes ‘legacy’ businesses

Vittorio Capocelli’s brother, Mario, began suffering from kidney failure in 1965. Mario needed a kidney transplant, but one of the best transplant doctors at the time, Dr. David Hume, was located in Richmond – approximately 4,500 miles from their home in Rome, Italy.

Vittorio and his family decided to pack up and travel to Richmond so that Mario could be treated by Hume, who had helped perform the very first kidney transplant in 1954 at Peter Ben Brigham Hospital.

A new partnership with NASA will begin this summer at all Henrico County public libraries.

Illegal voting in Virginia? Yes. Massive? Doubtful.


For years, Republicans have loudly proclaimed that voter fraud is widespread in U.S. elections – and just as adamantly, Democrats have insisted that such allegations are nonsense.

Last fall, a pair of groups supported by conservatives released a report with the sensational title “Alien Invasion in Virginia: The discovery and coverup of noncitizen registration and voting.” It said illegal voting is a “massive problem”:
