    I wasn't sure whether I was coming or going when I returned to work after the birth of twins. I would sleep in a chair in their room to make overnight feedings easier. When morning came, I'd drop off their older sister at school. Several times I was so out of it that as I drove back, I'd panic thinking I hadn't actually changed into a fresh set of clothes. Not to mention that I would be so focused on sterilizing bottles that I didn't have time to prepare my lunch. So what would I do?

    (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.

  • Shark attacks have been on the rise this year. Why?

    HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com
    29 Jun 2015 | 7:25 pm
    If the number of shark bites along the North Carolina coast the past three weeks seems high, that's because it is. Six swimmers have been bitten recently, including two last week along the Outer Banks. The previous four cases were farther south near Wilmington. Two of those cases involved loss of limbs. None of the victims has died. But the number of incidents already is more than in all of 2014, when there were four recorded bites in North Carolina, according to the International Shark Attack File, a database compiled by the Florida Museum of Natural History.

  • Lawsuit against state says livestock manure finding its way into watershed

    Not a problem: A few cows pooping upstream. A problem: 3.5 million head of livestock - mostly cows, but also horses, pigs, goats and sheep - making "direct deposits" into the Chesapeake Bay watershed. One cow alone makes nearly 70 pounds of daily "deposits" - a term used by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The organization is suing the state for continuing to let large-scale livestock operations give animals open access to streams, where they not only drink and wade but "deposit." The tide of manure sends bacteria, nitrogen and phosphorus downstream to the bay,…

    NORFOLK The year was 1969. Man landed on the moon, Richard Nixon became president and the Woodstock music festival attracted around 400,000 fans. And a young Deb Bunn - 20 years old - landed a job as a secretary to Norfolk's city assessor. "Didn't have the faintest idea as to what the assessor's office was," Bunn said Monday. She does now. Forty-six years later, Bunn is retiring. Her last day is today. She didn't spend all those years with Norfolk - she left for two decades before returning in 2008 to take the top job in the assessor's office. She was the…

  • 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…
