LETTER:School start times need to change

- My name is Zack Rector. I am a senior at Woodbridge High school and a member of the Boy Scout Troop 1352. The purpose of this letter is to discuss the time switch of high school and elementary start times. I believe that the times should be switched. As of right now, high school morning bell is at 7:30, while elementary schools start 8:45 am. I find this a complete waste of time.

Ready to ride

- Prince William Rep. Rob Wittman (R-1st) stopped by Whitt's Harley-Davidson over the weekend to wish the Combat Veterans Association well and to thank them for their service. The veterans group was preparing to leave for its Bull Run III fundraiser ride to Shenandoah. For the fundraiser, approximately 400 bikers raised about $30,000 to help veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

letter:United against the Bi-County Parkway

- From the outset, I have made clear my firm opposition to the Bi-County Parkway. It will come as a shock to many people in western Prince William County that Governor Terry McAuliffe is determined to resurrect the Bi-County Parkway despite intense public opposition. I have not encountered a single resident who supported the plan to ram this highway through communities in my Senate district.

Internship goes to the next level

- Next Level Fitness & Performance, at 6620 James Madison Hwy. in Haymarket, is bringing in its next group of interns. The facility accepts college students majoring in fitness-related fields, such as kinesiology and health sciences, who are looking to gain practical experience working directly with adults and athletes. Both Longwood and George Mason require internships for graduation and Next Level offers those students 400 hours of hands-on training.

PWC Tennis Open returns to Montclair

- It's been a long time coming since Adrian Zahand last ran the Prince William County Tennis Open or any of its predecessors. The tournament ran from 1988 through 1999, pitting top talent throughout the mid-Atlantic region against each other. Now the Montclair Tennis Club is preparing to host the event again in just over two weeks.

Recovery mode: activated

- Imagine a scenario where you step in a bucket that won't come off your foot. You fall down six stairs and finally kick off the bucket but then wedge the other foot in and fall down the next three stairs. That's basically been the latter half of the month for the Potomac Nationals.
