Every five years, Virginia requires cities and counties to update plans for development – how and where they’ll grow.
Many communities assume growth is good – and some even offer tax breaks to attract new industries and businesses, but a new report by Charlottesville economist David Shreve and planning consultant Craig Evans suggests that’s not the case if new companies hire people from elsewhere.
If you’ve been saving photos, notes and videos to your favorite social media sites and are counting on them to be there indefinitely, think again.....the Web may not the best place for storing the record of your life.

A Virginia Republican is getting some heat for supporting a bipartisan bill to stop gun trafficking.
