[Lack of] Efficiency at the U.S. Postal Service

We received a letter today at our office in Norfolk (23517 zip code) sent from Virginia Beach (23462 zip code). No worries, right? Uh, wrong. It has a Richmond postmark. Can you get anymore indirect route of delivery? VB to Norfolk via Richmond map

Who cares about Stone Brewing Co. We have O’Connor Brewing Co. & Smartmouth Brewing Co.

Stone Brewing Co. announced last week that they chose Richmond over Norfolk for their newest location. They then announced that they’re naming one of their new beers after Norfolk. Who cares! We don’t need your orange slice. Our O’Connor and Smartmouth craft beers are better than yours so we’re much better off anyway. Move along.

Here We Come With More Light Rail in Norfolk: Meetings Planned for Naval Station Norfolk Transit Extension Study

Four public meetings will be held this month to update the public on the Naval Station Norfolk Transit Extension Study.

Hampton Roads Transit and the City of Norfolk are in the final phases of early corridor planning process for a possible high capacity transit extension to Naval Station Norfolk. The study includes defining potential routes and transit modes in Norfolk that will link The Tide light rail system with the Navy base. The findings will be studied in more detail in a formal Federal environmental review process scheduled to begin in mid-2015.

The routes have been narrowed down to include those most preferred by the public and those most technically sound. The meetings this month are intended to share the results of that work with the public and gain further public input to make a final recommendation to the Norfolk City Council. For that reason, HRT will hold four more public meetings, and reopen the opportunity to comment online. The workshops will be held on the following dates and locations.

All four workshops are from 6-7:30 p.m.

Oct. 20, Ted Constant Center at Old Dominion University, 4320 Hampton Blvd. Free parking available in the public garage located off 43rd Street. This meeting location is served by local bus routes 2 and 4.

Oct. 23, Pretlow Library, 111 W. Ocean View Ave., Norfolk. This meeting location is served by local bus routes 1, 3, and 5.

Oct. 27, Kroc Center, 1401 Ballentine Blvd., Norfolk. This meeting location is served by local bus routes 18, 23

Oct. 30, Tidewater Community College, Norfolk Campus, Student Center – 5th Floor, 300 Granby St. This meeting location is near the temporary Downtown Norfolk Transit Center and is served by The Tide light rail.

The meetings will include small group participation with all attendees following a brief presentation from the study manager. HRT staff will be available to answer questions.
