That’s not the only deal if you’re a member of the River City Red Army, you know the crazies in the corner during every Kicker game you can get your own deal. So get out there and support the Rams.

This Thursday, February 27th, the Arthur Ashe Junior Athletic Center at 3001 N Arthur Ashe Blvd will host Senator Bernie Sanders, the current front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The rally was originally scheduled to take place at the National but the campaign has moved to a larger venue due to “overwhelming response” according to the Sanders campaign. Doors will open at 2 PM and Sanders is expected to speak around 3:30 PM. The rally is free to the public, and tickets are not required. Entrance will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The campaign is asking for attendees to RSVP but it is not required.

According to recent polling of Democrats by Monmouth University, Sanders is neck and neck with Biden and Bloomberg.

Among those who identify themselves as Democrats, Sanders (22%), Biden (21%), and Bloomberg (20%) are on equal footing. Other candidates get less support among self-identified Democrats, including Buttigieg (13%), Klobuchar (7%), and Warren (6%). Among those who call themselves independents (plus a small number of self-identified Republicans), Bloomberg (25%) and Sanders (23%) share the lead, followed by Biden (13%), Klobuchar (13%), and Buttigieg (8%), with Warren getting only 2%. White voters are split between Bloomberg (25%) and Sanders (23%), while Biden leads among black voters (37%). One-third of voters under 50 years old prefer Sanders (35%), while a similar number of those aged 65 and over back Bloomberg (32%).

Virginia is one of 14 states voting March 3rd on Super Tuesday.

Op-ed proposes the removal of “forgotten” A.P. Hill monument at Laburnum and Hermitage

“With so many battles raging, it is curious that one Confederate general and the monument dedicated to him remain relatively forgotten on the sideline, standing at an intersection not far from Monument Avenue and its pantheon of controversial figures,” the op-ed says.

From Style Weekly:

Linwood Holton Elementary School, at Hermitage Road and Laburnum Avenue, is named for one of our own 20th century civil rights heroes, who as governor of Virginia championed racial equality. The children who attend the school learn that they are a big part of Linwood Holton’s legacy.

Those same children who attend the school might very well wonder, though, “Who is that man whose statue is standing out there in the middle of the intersection?”

That would be A.P. Hill: the forgotten Confederate general and his monument.

Battles are being fought over Confederate monuments, here in Richmond on Monument Avenue of course, and at so many other sites around the country. Calls for memory and heritage clash with cries for truth and reconciliation. Words take on their own meaning and people take sides, with the monuments in the middle.

Traffic calming measures are coming to the Museum District after recent data indicated a high rate of incidents of speeding in the neighborhood.

According to the Museum District Association, raised crosswalks (or speed tables) and curb “bump-outs” are being installed along Grove Avenue between Belmont and Nansemond, as well as the intersections of Grove and Crenshaw and Grove and Auburn.

The bump-outs will protect pedestrians as they cross the street, enabling safer passage within the neighborhood.
