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.

Review: Woodbridge High is ‘...alight with talent’

- Written by Ray Bradbury in 1953, the novel 'Farenheit 451' enthralled readers with its gripping tale of a society in shambles: a place where books are burned, and the firemen don't stop fires, but start them.

"It's great to see City Hall being used to inspire creativity and art in the community," said Mayor Hal Parrish.

Time for a stiff drink; MurLarkey distillery opens in Bristow

- Licenses have been obtained, the still and fermenters are in place, the ribbon has been cut and the doors of MurLarkey in Bristow will soon be open to lovers of handcrafted distilled spirits. The name MurLarkey itself is a handcrafted blend of the names of the co-founders, Thomas Murray, the chief executive officer, and Mike Larkin, director of business and product development. The “ey” at the end is a nod to Grandmother Kelley in the family.

Snow removal: Who does it?

- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that the Eastern Seaboard would see heavier than usual precipitation this year. While heavier precipitation hasn’t meant much snow in our area, so far, snow removal could still be a factor as winter continues for a little while longer.
