Patriot to host wellness fair and “Red-Out”

LETTER:Medicaid money is missing

- With all of the concerns expressed for balancing state and local budgets, I find it amazing that the Virginia General Assembly has let over $1 billion in federal Medicaid dollars slip through their collective hands this year. That’s right! According to a recent study by the highly regarded Commonwealth Institute, Virginia has lost this amount during 2014.

Vote May - for something

- We at the “Times” were both saddened and overjoyed last week to learn that Supervisor Mike May (R) will be leaving the Prince William Board of County Supervisors to run for Commonwealth's Attorney. Saddened, because the board is losing a cool-headed moderate, a tie-breaker with friends and allies on both sides of the aisle. Overjoyed, because May has his eye on bigger things.

Kaine talks politics, trade, infrastructure

- Politics and business intersected in a bigger-than-usual way last week when Sen. Tim Kaine (D) paid a visit to the Prince William Chamber of Commerce’s Northern Virginia Executive Forum. About 60 local business and political leaders were invited to the forum breakfast to hear Kaine speak on trade, infrastructure and politics.

LETTER:We found our hero

- For three years students from the special ed classes at Forest Park and Hylton High Schools attended a special curriculum in a program called The Mane Experience at Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center. This program was kick started by a three year grant from Potomac Health Foundation. But on Dec. 31, 2014 the funding ran out.

- Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish announced today his campaign for Virginia’s 29th State Senate District in an online video posted to his website. A lifelong resident of the City of Manassas, Parrish has been an active member of the greater Manassas community and Prince William County.

Local grant aids Burmese

- The Woodbridge branch of the Burma Humanitarian Mission helps to support backpack medics in eastern Burma and the Ronald McDonald House Charities recently offered a grant allowing the group to support 10 teams and 14,000 children in Burma.

Pioneer swim team goes deep

- Sometimes, Lisa Bussian plays around with her swim team's lineup the way some people fiddle with their fantasy football lineup. Not because she has to, but -- with 36 male swimmers and 37 female -- because she can.

Custom clothier comes to Occoquan

- Capital Custom Clothiers opened its doors in Occoquan on Jan. 2. The husband-and-wife run clothing boutique is the second location in a franchise based out of Annapolis, Md. Pamela and Marcus Reed, who founded the Occoquan store, have been in the custom clothing business for a long time.

Murphy takes spot on Dumfries Council

- With less than three months remaining before the April 14 special election to complete the term of former council member Kristin Forrester, the Dumfries Town Council seated a new member who will also have a head start campaigning for the three-year post before election day. After a swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, William "Bill" Murphy officially took his spot on the council.
