Radio One Richmond’s Clovia Lawrence named as one of Boomer Magazine’s “Boomers and Shakers” and is featured on the cover! Congratulations Clovia!
From Bloomer’s Magazine:
Big issue – our biggest ever, actually – and it’s full of great things for the holidays and beyond.
Start with our Third Annual Boomers & Shakers Awards winners, inspiring people all. The profiles are written by news anchor Cheryl Miller of WTVR, our partner in the awards. Portraits are taken by our own Matt Stanton. Terri L. Jones and Audrey T. Hingley add profiles of our sponsors.
Betty Booker returns with Part 2 of the important two-part “Taking Care of Mom and Dad” series. Last time, she looked at the stumbling blocks; this time, at the ways around them. Kiplinger’s adds financial advice.
For the holidays, Dan Neman and Melissa Ruggieri have fun discussing – quite literally – holiday entertainment. Jim Ducibella details how Christmas trees came to America, down the road in Williamsburg. Colonial Williamsburg adds spectacular photographs of holiday decorating. For those who want to get out, we’ve got a calendar of more than 50 events. Jann Malone suggests a dozen new books to give – or receive.
Columnist Randy Fitzgerald writes about how long the tree stays up in his home (hint: a very long time). Bill Bevins interviews Dr. Madge Zacharias on how to head off holiday overeating – and to recover if you fail. (And by the way, in Boom, Bill and co-host Shelly Perkins discuss leaving their top-rated radio show. Fans will want to see that.) Our fashion section focuses on accessorizing for the holiday season, the jewelry provided by Tiffany & Co. at Stony Point Fashion Park.
Steve Clark writes about the intensified basketball rivalry between Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond. Daniel Jones offers the story and photos of the Virginia Fall Classic car show. David Robbins and Sherrie Page share their dining experience at Stuzzi’s. Our Food Buzz has the latest restaurant news.
Columnist Gene Cox offers perspective to any of us who think we have all the answers. Columnist David Robbins talks about the frustrations of a society remaking the same mistakes.
Lisa Schaffner shares the story of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and how we can help.
And we step back in time: Audrey Hingley catches up with Mary McDonough, “Erin” of The Waltons. Bill Oglesby wonders where you were on Dec. 4, 1984. Finally, our Trivia page wonders whether you remember New Year’s Days of years gone by.
Have fun, everybody. See you in the new year!
