COLUMN:Call to Action - Get in the holiday spirt

- Good morning Prince William - Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner so we are in full swing with our Un Trim A Tree Holiday Gift Program for needy kids. We currently have hundreds of children available and so many need warm clothes! I can provide you their name, age and two toy wishes so you can be a special Santa to a kid. Please visit my website at: volunteerprincewilliam.org and fill out a donor form for me. You will have a blast. I'm already stockpiling Frozen characters because I've been told that's the hot item. Come help us provide a little joy to a child.

LETTER:PW Parkway construction is a disgrace

- When is the construction crew working on the Prince William Parkway going to finish a job they have turned into a local Big Dig? It is disgraceful and disrespectful to taxpayers that they have ripped up the Parkway between Hoffman and Chinn for much of the past year, and the end is not in sight.
