We’re losing our faith in our teachers, the church, political leaders and each other. Instead of working together for the greater good, we all clamor to be heard.

Megan McCourt will share photo organizing tips with Patch readers on her new blog.
Lake Ridge resident Megan McCourt joined the Lake Ridge Patch blogging community to share photo organizing tips with Patch readers. "I'd venture to say just about every household in America has at least one box of photos buried in a closet or under a bed," McCourt said in her first blog post.

By using the new Express toll lanes, which are free for buses and HOV 3+, PRTC has been able to reduce the travel time on its commuter bus service between Woodbridge and Tysons by an average of 20 minutes. That means Tysons Express riders can get to and from work even faster while still having "found time" during their commute - the time to do things one can't do while driving such as snoozing, checking emails, reading a book and maybe even getting some work done through the free Wi-Fi available on the bus. …
