Ukrops Food Hall Next Steps

Ukrop’s wants to rezone the property that was once the Bon Air Baptist Church’s village campus. It would be renovated and turned into a food hall.

It will not be a grocery store, but rather a place offering the most requested Ukrop’s food items - we’re on board!

Rezoning is the next step - it’s on schedule for tonight’s meeting

FRIED CHICKEN! Not today, but hopefully some time next year (pending zoning approvals), we’ll be opening a food hall...

Pig Battle in Petersburg

Lizzy is a 3-year-old miniature spotted pot-bellied pig, and a part of the Mckee family. She was adopted to act as a therapy animal for two boys, both of whom have autism, when she was a piglet.

Petersburg family told they can't keep pig

Fall foliage ‘leaf-ing’ much to be desired

Yeah, we went there. Meteorologist Andrew Freiden says this year the leaves in Central Virginia will most likely not be putting on their best show.

Peak for fall foliage is typically the last week of October, or first week of November here in Central Virginia, so there’s more time for rain to fall, but it might not be enough.
