Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning

by: lowkell

Sun Apr 01, 2012 at 07:06:26 AM EDT

Here are a few Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, April 1.

*Jeff E. Schapiro: Another headache McDonnell doesn't need
*Civil Liberties: Claire-ity at the ACLU
*Liberals should yield on Silver Line labor issue (How on earth is this about "liberals" and "conservatives?" As far as I can tell, building Metro to Dulles the right way, at the lowest cost, is just smart. Silly headline and overall tone, by a usually excellent writer.)
*Thanks for keeping taxpayers in the light
*Schmookler hopes to sway conservative Valley voters
*Relief is near for congested Va. roads
*Va.'s Vietnamese community fears for Eden Center's image months after raid
*In search for answers after Va. Tech deaths, two families refuse to settle
*Allen attacks EPA proposal affecting power plants (Just remember, Felix is a bought-and-paid-for tool of the polluters. End of story.)
*State pension? Try the lottery
*Responsible gun laws in Virginia? Yes, it could happen
*Rising area utility rates hit city residents hardest
*Region's failure to cooperate
*State plans public hearings on other Hampton Roads projects
*Letter: Citizen 'Disappointed' By Cline's Alleged Misrepresentations... (A number of Del. Cline's constituents are going after him for killing anti-shackling legislation and for comments he made during the process. Good for them; keep it up!)

P.S. Also, mazel tov to Emily Blout and Michael Signer, who "were married Saturday evening at the Clifton Inn in Charlottesville, Va." That's one smart couple!

One good looking couple with a lot of potential -- hope we see more of them in the future.
