Hockey season ends for PW teams

- For Woodbridge and Osbourn Park high schools, the Northern Virginia Scholastic Hockey League (NVSHL) seasons ended last week, but not before the Vikings and the Yellow Jackets produced their best winterlong ice shows in a while.


- Anyone who took the Polar Plunge last year for the first time was in for a rude shock if they went for a repeat performance this year. The Special Olympics fundraiser is held each February at Tim's Rivershore in Dumfries. Teams of plungers take turns running from the beach into the Potomac River about 30 yards out until the water is about waist-deep, then dunking under before running back in.

Pet first aid classes to be held

- There’s no 9-1-1 number to call when pets get hurt; so, pet owners need to be ready to step up when needed. The Prince William Parks and Recreation Department will offer two first aid and CPR classes for cats and dogs this spring to help people learn what to do in an emergency.

COLUMN:Va. needs true ethics reform

- Almost 400 years ago, the first elected legislative body in North America, the Virginia House of Burgesses, was established. Many great leaders, including Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, and George Washington served in what became the Virginia House of Delegates.

March Madness hits the art gallery

- The Artists’ Undertaking Gallery in Occoquan will be holding a “March Madness” exhibit featuring fused glass by David and Dale Barnes of Sterling and artwork by Roger Frey of Woodbridge. Work by David and Dale Barnes is made with the art glass, dichroic glass, metals and gemstones to form unique pieces of art.

Bargain shopping helps give back

- Vonda Byrd of Front Royal loves to stop at Community Thrift in Manassas to check out the clothes and to check up on a friend who works there. “She comes here all the time,” said Anthony Patrick, the unofficial store greeter and a ServiceSource client. “When I don’t see you, I ask for you,” Byrd replied to her friend during a recent shopping trip.
