The school year is nearing its end and the Mace & Crown is preparing for its final issue. Our last two were a scramble, but we pulled through with some solid news stories that I’m proud to present here.
And more from this week's Mace & Crown.
Greetings and good wishes from the editor of the Mace & Crown!
RICHMOND -- Virginia could be the next state to defund Planned Parenthood if a budget amendment proposed by pro-life Delegate Bob Marshall, R-Manassas, gains traction in the Senate budget.
Reading Old Dominion University’s daily announcements, the headline, “Do You Want Light Rail to Connect to ODU?” lured me in. I took the bait. I wasn’t thinking of ODU per se but, being a Ghent resident, I imagined the possibility of a route for the Tide in close proximity to my apartment. Further inspection revealed the ultimate aim of this proposed “connection” – a Light Rail alignment linking to Naval Station Norfolk.
Last week, HRT released maps showing 8 primary alignment concepts for an extension of The Tide to Naval Station Norfolk. The alignment concepts include multiple options, resulting in 19 total alternatives. As an informed citizen, you may feel overwhelmed about where to begin.
