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 You completely failed to address the severely outdated stories.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.

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.

Went there for lunch yesterday. Will never go again. The first issue I have is the dress code signRead Morei n the window. No one wearing anything affiliated with any motorcycle group are not permitted in. Second issue was the employee dress code. Cut off jean shorts with butts hanging out and bras falling out of their tank tops. Men at tables were laughing at the appearance of the girls. It was disgusting. I got the she's a hottie burger. Told by the waitress it was very spicy I was excited to try it. It had zero spice. In addition it had canned peppers on it, not fresh. Also, it was supposed to have onion strings on it and it didn't. When I told the waitress she said okay then went to another table to take their order. I had to ask someone else for them. She came back to the table and I told her if I had waited for her my food would have got cold. Her response was she didn't want the other people to wait. Instead of telling them she would be right with, then getting my onions, she was okay with my food being cold. The onion strings were also from a can. The burger had zero flavor. Never again.

I don't understand why you think you need butts and boobs to sell a new restaurant. It will drawRead Morethe immature loud men who can't hold their liquor and think they can touch the wait staff. I don't care for my grandson and little granddaughters to see and hear that nonsense. A waitress says excuse me sweetie while leaning across the table with her boobs ready to fall out. Her butt nearly in someone's face. I think all new restaurants go through a rough period until they fix the problems. The cook gets better after several complaints over the menu. The wait staff learns from trial and error. The manager needs to go table to table and ask how was your meal and our service. Let his customers know he cares about their meal experience and hopes they come back to try them again. He should take notes and talk with his employees to fix the problems. Please don't chew the staff out during meal time and embarrass them either. Let's see what the manager can do in six months.

Unfortunately what the writer states above is incorrect. She may be a client that had to leaveRead Morebeca use her time was up or an employee that was told to leave due to her actions. As a former employee I have worked with the Safe House Supervisor Valria and I cannot say enough about what an excellent supervisor she is!! She goes above and beyond for the clients and cares a great deal for them. The rules have been put in place by the Program Director Dotty Larson. Dotty does not treat her employees fairly, she lies and creates chaos. There are too many problems to list here that she causes, but suffice it to say that ACTS Administration is aware of these issues. It is my hope that ACTS will take action soon to remove Dotty Larson from this program. Turning Points has been around for at least 30 years and it is a program that is needed in our county. It has helped many women and children that have escaped a life of abuse. It would be a shame if it fails because of Dotty but if it continues to go the way it is it will. Please make Turning Points a healthy program again...remove Dotty from this organization!
