Pat Troy rattles off the names of famous hands he's shaken with the same matter-of-factness that the bartenders at his well-known Irish pub in Old Town Alexandria have when reciting the draft-beer list.
Alexandria's mayor has penned a pointed letter to President Obama saying he was "disturbed" by a recent damning news report suggesting potential security vulnerabilities at the Mark Center, a new Defense Department complex in Northern Virginia.
The city of Alexandria and GenOn Energy have reached an agreement to permanently close the company's Potomac River Generating Station, ending a long effort by city council members and residents to shut down the plant, which has been repeatedly fined for environmental violations.
Metro officials will replace floor tiles in rail stations with larger, less slippery ones, agency officials said Thursday.
A Northern Virginia congressman is asking local jurisdictions to prevent a "looming traffic nightmare" by taking legal action against a planned relocation of 6,400 defense workers.
Alexandria businesses would pay commercial property taxes for the first time if a 2012 budget before the City Council is approved next month.

Alexandria city officials who have refused to consider cost-cutting moves to restrict services to illegal aliens now are considering a tax increase to fund transportation projects.
"It's a very historical moment for us, and considering the high number of dogs and dog parks we have in Alexandria, very significant for children to see this as a profession for them," Mr. Euille says.
"Before I met these doctors, I don't think I had ever met an African-American veterinarian," says Alexandria Mayor William D. Euille.
