Chris Fultz and Alex Graf, owners of ZZQ, also released an impassioned plea for information about their friend and coworker over the weekend:
Chris Fultz, Alex Graf and the staff at ZZQ have been busy since they opened the doors of their Texas craft barbecue joint. They are grateful beyond words to the people of Richmond for such a warm embrace. But, they’ve been working with a big hole in their hearts for the last week. David Sines, a major part of the startup team, went missing on Feb. 8.
It was Sines, a metal sculptor and friend of Fultz for 30 years, who brought Fultz’s artistic vision to life with his unique skills and craftsmanship. From the longhorns above his backyard patio gate, to the tap and door handles, to the wood and metal tables in the backyard, it’s all Sines’s work, which was his passion, as well. Now the owners and staff of ZZQ’s are asking for your help. If you have any information or have seen him please contact Alex Graf at 804-310-5711. “We just want our friend back,” Graf said.

Black Bear Spotted in James River Park
I can barely contain my excitement about a bear.
The black bear is not the bear being reported but rather a placeholder bear from Wikipedia until someone gets a picture.
My husband was out on a long ramble with our dog and the dog became very keyed up as they got to the top of the pedestrian bridge at 42nd st. Husband looked down in time to catch a glimpse of a bear.The bear was seen entering the underbrush near the bottom of the steps. This was at 11:40 this morning.
Sorry, no photos.This is not the first time that they have seen bears in the park at about this time of year.
So, heads up, neighbors!

Halloween Howl has been a long standing annual tradition in Forest Hill Park, bringing our community together with dogs and their people to benefit Friends of Forest Hill Park and Ring Dog Rescue. The Howl has included dog/owner games, best pet trick competition, costume parade and refreshments.
