HeraldTrib Today: Jan. 16, 2008

Elementary school realignment was the big news this week (see the stories below), but it’s a week that’s seen big news on all fronts.

For instance, I was planning on covering more on the Elementary schools stuff Monday morning when I received a phone call from Harold Graves, the Buckingham Station Post Master, who said they had opened their new lobby and wondered if I wanted to take pictures. You can take a virtual tour—see the link below.

Monday found N. George Mason Drive down to one lane southbound at N. Henderson Road while a work crew installed a sewer main.

On top of that, I was putting together the Police Notes for today when I saw a press release that hopes people would help find a burglar who stole cash from a Harris Teeter office. See the youtube video the police released, below.

My kids also launched a related blog of their own (The H&H Report) that reviews kids movies, books and events from their point of view. It’s for kids by kids. The review of “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” is there now.

Consider this a general “call for reviews” to all the kids of parents who read this blog. Have your kids write what they think of in-theatre movies, DVDs, books, museums, music, etc, etc., and email them in. My kids and I will run them. (Barrett teachers—I’ll run the stuff from your classes—email me for more information: heraldtrib@gmail.com.

And finally, Mr. Chon, owner of the Glebe Market just might not retire. That story is below.

There’s other stories and letters and everything—big week here at the HeraldTrib.
