I still think that this local blog should just be for Lake Ridge, Woodbridge, and other small towns.

Thanks for the note, Robert. We're posting new posts daily from Woodbridge. But the site isn'tRead Moreexclu sively Woodbridge news. We've been sharing trending stories from the region and the nation and those posts have been popular with other readers. Thanks, again. Greg

OK, I understand the trending stories, though I disagree with combining stories from other areasRead Moreint o what is obviously a local feed. Why is it called the "Woodbridge Patch" if it contains stories from other areas? If I want the Lorton or Fairfax news, I can read their Patch. (If a story in another Patch is relevant to Woodbridge, you can insert a link to that Patch.) If I want the San Diego news, I can read their Patch. The Woodbridge Patch should be about--guess what!--WOODBRIDGE!!! You completely failed to address the severely outdated stories. Month old stories destroy readers confidence in your abilities to manage your own newsfeeds. Please address this!

I guess if they charged a "show up fee", they would investigate minor accidents. AllRead Moreabou t the revenue, I guess. Thanks for your post.

I kind of think their salary plus being equipped with new vehicles and lots of high-tech equipmentRead Morei s their "show up fee." I do appreciate their efforts to maintain good order and discipline among the masses, and I herald their bravery in the face of possible danger, but patrolling parking lots for inspection violators? Really? Is that why we are taxed so heavily, to support parking lot attendants?

Well put, sir. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Yes, I have to agree with Patti, a little more detail would be helpful. Woodbridge is a big place.Read MoreI 've been keeping my eyes out for her and told my husband. It's a miserable time for a little girl to be out wandering.

I saw your question a few days ago, I guess no one else has any idea either. I heard the rumble. IRead Morej ust figured it was a rare January Thunder storm brewing up since it was raining my way. Granted, the sound was starting to push my thunder theory when it finally ended. The up/down temperatures we've been having can't let me rule out the sound was anything but thunder since there have been no reports indicating the sound was anything but.
