Well, that's just about right, the average of the top 10 CEO salaries in VA is 390x that of theRead More average worker salary of $45,000. US Avg is 475x. Don't know why the average worker is complaining about wage stagnation and lack of jobs. Poor CEOs must work so hard to keep all that money out of the tax man's hands and the grubby hands of the worker! How can they possibly survive otherwise?

That must be why NG is dropping retirees insurance.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

Support local mom and pop shops. We have 3 empty spaces now and that is how the decline of an areaRead More starts!!!

WELL...............no worries for those Kroger lovers or haters as SAFEWAY went to Albertson'sRead More owner, CERBERUS. CERBERUS plans on reforming Safeway stores to look/feel like Trader Joe's.

It's always that "evil Walmart" with Lefties...

Cerberus will probably close at least half the chain as most equity firms are apt to do in order toRead More up profit and create a stream of returns that will up their chances of passing it off to someone else in a few years.
Manassas Mall Under New Management
Connie Beck March 6, 2014 at 11:05 am
I agree with Gale, I agree in part with Jamie. Manassas is a great place to live, with a lot ofRead More community and family oriented events. I don't believe you have to live in upscale to get upscale, Manassas may not have the highest pricetags on housing, but there are great people here who would welcome places that we desperately need --- maybe a Whole Foods in the old KMart space, maybe a Cheesecake Factory, maybe a Dave and Buster's in the old Target space, maybe an Ann Taylor Loft, and others. What we need to do is write to the new management, and voice our opinions. I spoke with the previous management, and was told they have to show that the stores would make money, let this new management know that we would love to spend money in a local mall or town center, rather than driving to one in another town - if you build it, we will come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let our opinions be heard, direct them to the right people, maybe things will change.
Connie Beck March 6, 2014 at 11:21 am
There is a facebook post asking for ideas -- www.facebook.com/manassasmall; and the email to writeRead More to is: seamagailani@pyramidmg.com; they welcome comments and ideas about what we would like to have.

There are some good store there now but the only way I shop there is with a concealed (legal)Read More handgun. It is a freak show for sure.

Yes, an investment in economic development. MD & P.G. Co. are investing in National HarborRead More including a gambling casino attraction and other amenities along with the creative investment strategy listed here in this article. Old Town has looked ahead to capitalize on the attractions on the other side of the river by increasing hotel space and working with National Harbor to get visitors to use Old Town as a destination during their stay across the river. Fairfax County across from National Harbor on the US Route 1 or Richmond Highway corridor seemingly anticipates gamblers in need of fast and easy loans given the proliferation of Car Title Loan Businesses popping up like mushrooms. Can't imagine the VA legislature concerning itself with much more than bills that seek to limit human rights, abortion rights, economic rights, health care rights, environmental rights, voter rights or any other progressive effort that give more rights to citizens. Just another bass ackward state of the old Confederacy that can't fully acknowledge modernity.

Stop all the restaurants in Old Town!! We need retail in Okd Town, NOT more restaurants. With theRead More parking woes many of these restaurants will not make it a year.
