Thumbs up to Del. Adam Ebbins (D-49) proposed bag tax that will decrease environmental clean-up costs in the long run while also bolstering eco-consciousness. Reusable bags hold more groceries, meaning less bags to carry.
Thumbs up to T.C. Hockey. T.C. Williams boys and girls ice hockey teams display school spirit despite minimal fanfare. The girls squad, the only public school ice hockey team in Virginia, is the de facto state champion.
Thumbs up to the city government for calling a special meeting and officially acting on the snowstorm state of emergency in time to receive federal funds should they become available.
Thumbs down to a bag tax. Proposal by state Del. Adam Ebbin (D-49) to tax plastic shopping bags a nickel a piece would be another tax encroachment on an already over-taxed citizenry. Encourage the use of reusable bags, dont add a new tax.
