Voucher Program at Farmers Markets Successful

From Fairfax County Park Authority:

Fifteen vendors at Fairfax County Farmers Markets took part in a voucher program supported by the non-profit, interfaith organization Our Daily Bread in 2011. The program, titled “Our Daily Veggies,” (ODV) provides vouchers to Our Daily Bread food program clients who can use the vouchers to purchase fresh produce at local Park Authority sponsored farmers markets.

The ODV program distributed $9,810 worth of $10 vouchers between June and October, according to the Fairfax County organization’s Executive Director Lisa Whetzel.  Market vendors redeemed $3,980 worth of those vouchers. Whetzel said 48 of the 97 families who were sent vouchers redeemed them, spending an average of eight vouchers per family.

“We received very positive feedback from clients,” Whetzel said of the ODV program’s second year.

Virginia Couple's Close Call On The Costa Concordia

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- "When you're on a cruise, the Titanic always comes up, but in a joking manner. You never imagine it could actually happen," said Alexandria resident, Emily Bonilla.

Three days ago, Bonilla and Leonard Pieton were wrapping up a romantic cruise in the Mediterranean. The couple took a video of the wait staff singing and dancing in the main dining room on the last night of their cruise. Little did they know, it was also the last night that their ship would be afloat.

Around the same time that the Costa Concordia was crashing into rocks off the coast of Tuscany, Pieton was giving Bonilla a very different kind of rock. He proposed at the Coliseum in Rome, just hours after disembarking from the Costa Concordia.

"It's surreal. You don't really expect to see the boat you just stepped off of halfway underwater," said Pieton.
