30th Annual YFT Country Fair cancelled, auction rescheduled

- Heavy rains and wind forecasts forced Youth for Tomorrow to cancel their annual Country Fair held on campus set for Saturday, Oct. 3. Gary L. Jones, the CEO of Youth for Tomorrow, said safety was a factor. “[W]hen you have high winds and tents…we didn’t want to put people’s safety in jeopardy,” said Jones.

Stewart and Smith reveal passion for Prince William

- Thursday Oct. 1 saw a debate between Corey Stewart and Rick Smith over the Prince William County Board of Supervisor’s Chairman-at-Large position.

Approximately 50 people attended.

Needles in the Haymarket

- Marti Lawrence, owner of Needles in the Haymarket, understands building a successful business takes time and patience, much like learning how to knit and crochet. Lawrence has owned the Prince William County yarn, thread, and accessories shop for three and a half years after she bought it from the previous owners. She had worked for the previous owners for about six to eight years. “It just ended up being an opportunity at the right time,” Lawrence said when asked why she bought Needles in the Haymarket.

Competitive cheer squads go, fight, win

- A quartet of high schools from Prince William County sent cheerleading teams to the Spirit Bowl competition Oct. 3, at Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, and one of them returned carrying the big prize. With three minutes for each squad to show what they can do, the meet came down to something of a dog fight. The Bulldogs of C.D. Hylton earned the Spirit Bowl's team title - and the resplendent silver trophy cup that came with it - edging out the Bulldogs of the host school.

Area weathered the storms in style

- Last Tuesday the rains came and continued until the weekend causing traffic problems, flooding, cancellations and delays. With threats of Hurricane Joaquin making landfall in Virginia late last week and over the weekend, everyone prepared for the worse and made the best of the situation. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency triggering cancellations of events across the county including the Joe Gibbs Youth for Tomorrow annual Country Fair.
