An old but good column!

Sam Davies’s Raising Richmond this week is all about when you realize you’re not a new parent anymore. He realized it awhile back when he had his second kid, but suddenly his kids are the oldest kids at the party and he has to do virtually nothing to keep them alive BECAUSE THEY DO MOST OF IT THEMSELVES! When did that happen?? New parents: take heart. It gets so easy.

Saving lives: actual serious business

I spoke with Chief Alfred Durham of the Richmond Police Department (as well as Emily Barker from the YWCA) about some initiatives that the police are taking to stem this scary trend of violence we’ve been seeing lately. They are both certainly things you should be aware of, because you, personally, can help. And why wouldn’t you want to help people not be victims of violent assault?

A funny thing about the RPD

They didn’t just name the program GUNS250 because you can get up to $250 for a good tip on an illegal gun carrier/owner/user, the also named it that because you are giving guns 2 5-0. Chief Durham wouldn’t take credit for it himself, but if I find out who named it, I’m hiring them stat.
