Re: “Friends Mourn Deaths of Activists, Guns in Tow

On August 2, 2014 at 8:53 a.m., the late Jason Spitzer wrote, in a comment on Style Weekly's Facebook wall [visible at the attached link], "Hello I am Jason Spitzer. First off we have stoped [sic] walks on cary town [sic]. We feel the message has been heard there." *** Those wishing to honor Jason's memory might start by honoring his WORD and staying out of Carytown where merchants and patrons have made it quite clear that your brand of "liberty" is bad for business and not appreciated. https://www.facebook.com/StyleWeekly/photo…

Re: “Cameron McPherson, 29

This guy is the real deal. Smart, skilled and deeply good. For the last five years, he has volunteered to do pro bono media relations for Cookies for Kids' Cancer RVA's City-Wide Bake Sale (first Saturday in September). His efforts have set the bar for the NATIONAL organization, increased awareness of the severe lack of funding for pediatric cancers and enabled our RVA to raise more than $320K in five years. There's no doubt in my mind that Cameron, through his efforts, has played an important role in the development of new and more effective pediatric cancer treatments. He's a great role model, neighbor and citizen. Thank you for recognizing him.

Re: “Knockout Rounds

On March 17, Betsy Harrell Thomas, an owner at Dixie Donuts, posted this to their Facebook wall: "We'd like to welcome a new kid to the neighborhood: Sugar Shack Donuts opening soon. Now don't pay attention to the local media folks who are going to try to stir up "donut war" gossip. We are excited for these guys, they have been planning their donut shop for over a year now and they'll bring some great new things to the area (including gluten free donuts, which we know will make many of you happy!). There are lots of great donuts to be had in Richmond: Mrs. Yoder's at the SOTJ farmer's market (could she be any cuter? could those donuts be any tastier?), Boots' at Westhampton Bakery (the man is dedicated to his craft, and it shows in his product), and of course the King Of The Donut Scene in Richmond -- Country Style Donuts (those fluffy big donuts are little bites of heaven). No, we don't all hate each other... don't let reality tv shows fool you. Most of us the industry like having peers for support. So keep your eyes and ears open for Sugar Shack's opening at 1001 N. Lombardy Street, show a new biz some support and appreciation. It all works together to keep making Richmond a great place to live!" I don't know who has the best donuts, honestly. But Dixie Donuts are exquisite and their people are even better.
