Alpha Academy talks sexuality

- Alpha Academy hosted the Project Alpha Conference on Nov. 15 at Potomac Middle School in Woodbridge. The conference was put on in conjunction with Planned Parenthood of Washington DC (PPMW) and provided an environment where young men could learn about sexuality, manhood and relationship issues. A total of 28 young men between the ages of 12 and 14 attended the Project Alpha conference.

Vint Hill owners mum on plans for more homes

- Concerns that 600 or more houses could be built at Vint Hill along with questions about a planned psychiatric treatment center brought about 100 residents out Nov. 12 to hear a presentation about what can and can't be built. The Vint Hill development is located just south of Gainesville and has generated concern and interest from Prince William residents. The concern is over increased traffic along U.S. 29 while the interest centers around the new businesses and opportunities that will be built in the development.

EDITORIAL:Giving thanks

- This week marks Thanksgiving so we'd like to take a moment to consider the things that we're thankful for. Aside from the obvious -- our friends, families, freedom, prosperity and pumpkin pie, we're thankful for the quality of life that we find in Prince William.

Giving thanks, giving back

- The holidays bring stress but they can also bring out the best in people. Close to 300 volunteers helped pack and distribute 781 Thanksgiving meals for SERVE's Operation Turkey program last week at Manassas Adventist Prep School, according to SERVE spokesperson Tonya A. McCreary. In Dumfries, members of the Rolling Thunder Va. #3 motorcycle group and the USO gathered at the National Museum of the Marine Corps to hand out Thanksgiving baskets to 125 families.

The other powerlines

- Will it be A, B, or C? They are the three options being considered by Dominion Virginia Power to build more capacity to serve customers in the years ahead. Dominion favors Option C connecting an upgrade in Fauquier County with Gainesville. Dominion planners say that option would minimize adverse impacts on scenic areas, historic districts and the environment.
