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.

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 is a crime that often happens in the shadows of our community. Human trafficking has taken a foothold in Northern Virginia, and all parents and teachers need to be aware of this heinous crime.
