    It's our festival and we're not giving up on it. There's no reason. The Classic Movie Festival, which kicks off season 12 on Monday at Norfolk's Naro Expanded Cinema, has become a summer tradition. It has sold more than 35,000 tickets and, to tell the truth, there have been few empty seats. Who would have thought folks would turn out for "old" movies - 77 have been shown so far, without a single repeat - that cost practically nothing to buy? But will it happen again? It's hot out there and, surely, people have something better to do Monday nights in July and…

    1 Jul 2015 | 11:00 pm
    By Erich Wagner (File photo) A judge denied a motion last week requesting two separate trials for the man accused in the deaths of three prominent Alexandrians over the course of more than a decade. Charles Severance is charged with capital murder and first-degree murder in the deaths of Nancy Dunning in 2003, Ronald Kirby in November 2013 and Ruthanne Lodato in February 2014. Prosecutors have said they will not pursue the death penalty in the case. Attorneys for Severance argued in April that there is not enough evidence to connect the decade-old Dunning case with the two more recent…

Terry McAuliffe's administration. Under the settlement, US 460 Mobility Partners will keep about $210 million of the payments it received under former Gov. Bob McDonnell and waive a claim to an additional $103 million, according to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because McAuliffe planned to announce the agreement today. The state, meanwhile, must still pay $50 million to…

  • Our View: Old Town needs its theater

    27 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    (File photo) In the buildup to the release of “Jurassic World” earlier this month, a wry critic noted that the first three “Jurassic Park” movies could be summed up as, “Dinosaurs eat people,” with some of the good guys escaping. He mused, “[I] wonder what ‘Jurassic World’ will be about.” Unfortunately, instead of housing “Jurassic World,” “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” or any of this summer’s blockbusters or art house films, Alexandria’s Old Town Theater is stuck in a rerun of its own: it is still shuttered and faces an uncertain future.

  • Your View: Bike lanes assessment on King Street must have established metrics

    27 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    By Dino Drudi, Alexandria (File photo) To the editor: City council’s vote last year to establish bike lanes along upper King Street without first having established metrics is problematic. One metric I would propose — not the only one — the city department of transportation and environmental services should be using to gauge the efficacy of the bicycle lanes pilot program is the mathematical ratio of the number of bicycles relative to the number of motor vehicles relative to the respective lane widths. This metric evaluates the percentage of vehicles disaggregated out of the general…
