    VIRGINIA BEACH Bishop Sullivan Catholic's players couldn't catch their coach late Friday night. And they were only chasing him because Norfolk Academy couldn't catch Kevin Hicks. Hicks carried 28 times for 193 yards and six touchdowns to lift Bishop Sullivan to a wild 48-42 victory over the Bulldogs to capture the Tidewater Conference title. Hicks, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound senior, scored three times in the third quarter as the Crusaders (8-2) broke open a seesaw game. "I couldn't ask for no more than six touchdowns," Hicks said, laughing at the absurdity of his…

    Gov. Terry McAuliffe's executive order to promote construction of affordable housing drew little public fanfare this week, but the effects of the policy have the potential to ripple across the commonwealth in ways that will substantially improve Virginia's quality of life and economy. The order, which coincided with the annual Governor's Housing Conference in Norfolk, emphasizes the role that construction of affordable housing plays in driving down homelessness, stabilizing families, providing jobs and helping to create the conditions that allow small businesses to thrive.

    "They're all in there getting along," one character comments, in shock, as he considers the two divergent groups who are holding a rally in the next room. From the British contingent that turned out hit American imports like "The Full Monty," "Calendar Girls," "Billy Elliot" and "Kinky Boots" comes another culture-clash "comedy" that ends up making you feel both exuberant and tolerant. Of course, you should have felt tolerant in the first place, but that's for each person to personally ponder. "Pride" concerns the…

    At this stage, a hit action movie from Keanu Reeves would seem unlikely. But his new film, the vigilante drama "John Wick," has a chance to become a cult favorite of the genre. Reeves' last movie, "47 Ronin," was a disastrous flop, and other pre-"Matrix" action duds like "Johnny Mnemonic" and "Chain Reaction" suggested that his kind of morose boyishness didn't play well. There have been stretches during which it was assumed he was ready to sit back and count his profits from the "Matrix" films, which were quite enough to…

    31 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    By Terri Schlichenmeyer (Image/Little, Brown) Your heroes are larger than life. They’re always tall, strong, and wise. No one can best them or outdo them, and no one can touch them in the good that they do. Whether they’re cape-wearing, donning a dress, or suited, you want to be just like them. And you are, more than you realize. Your heroes are only human, after all, and in the new book “Death of a King” by Tavis Smiley (with David Ritz), you’ll read about one of them. On April 4, 1967, Martin Luther King, Jr. (known to his friends as “Doc”) had his mind made up. Despite…

    By Christa Annett, Alexandria In response to Jimm Roberts’ recent letter (“We need citywide referendums on costly public projects,” October 2), I wanted to join the disgruntled Old Town residents who resent the lack of input in decisions regarding redevelopment and costly public projects that city councilors, without proper consultation, imposes on taxpayers. It seems to me that spending on projects that spur economic development takes priority over maintenance and improvements in the historic district — the pride of Alexandria. Our dismal looking roads are a disgrace and in desperate…

    By Bill Reagan (File photo) In an ideal world — one where small businesses have unlimited time and money — entrepreneurs would employ a bevy of experts to advise them in a variety of areas. In reality, most small businesses make do with limited resources and usually lack the capacity to engage consultants. There are, however, opportunities for business owners to leverage community assets to access otherwise unaffordable assets. For example, we often overlook our local universities, which are an amazing resource for the small business community. Through a partnership with the Alexandria…

There have been many cuts to the budgets of the city’s fire and police departments over several years. These have adversely affected the quality of life of residents in the City of Alexandria by failing to provide our public safety departments with adequate resources. Recently, we have had two armed robberies in or near our development. The…

    On the eve of yet another objectively important but sadly, by the public’s impression, under-appreciated election, we trust that one factor will continue to hold true – namely, that the electorate in the City of Falls Church will deliver the highest voter turnout, as a percentage of total registered voters, in Virginia. This statistic over time, when combined with other variables, such as the fact the City has the highest household income in the entire U.S. and a higher percentage of persons with college and higher degrees than any jurisdiction in the land, serves to convince us that…
