Candlelight Vigil for Local Teens Killed in Car Accident

There will be a candlelight vigil tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Battlefield High School in Prince William County in honor of Derek Meffert and Stephen Dixon. Meffert, 15, and Dixon, 18, were killed over the weekend in a car accident coming back from a Rascall Flatts concert when their car spun out of control and was struck by another vehicle.

Dixon graduated from Battlefield this past spring and Meffert was about to enter into his sophomore year. Meffert was an avid reader, musician, athlete, and had a great sense of humor, said his mother, Yolanda Meffert.

Prince William County police spokesman said that both speed and alcohol were believed to be factors in the accident that occurred at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday on Logmill Road. The vigil tonight at Battlefield High School is located at 15000 Graduation Drive in Haymarket, VA.

Va. Men Arrested In Delaware On Drug Charges

CHRISTIANA, Del. (AP) -- Delaware State Police said they seized about two pounds of marijuana from two Virginia men during a traffic stop on Interstate 95.

Police say 18-year-old Christopher Harley of Centreville, Va., and 23-year-old Christopher Lancaster of Manassas, Va., were each charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and other offenses.

Both men were taken to Young Correctional Institution. Harley is being held on $4,501 secured bail, and Lancaster was being held on $4,500 secured bail.

Police Cpl. Jeffrey Hale said Harley was the driver of the car that was stopped for speeding. He said Harley told the trooper that the car had been rented by his girlfriend.

While searching for the rental agreement, Hale said the trooper found bags of marijuana in the glove box, rear floorboard and trunk of the car.

New Firehouse Subs Location in Fairfax

Firehouse Subs has been expanding aggressively in its 14th year of business. In particular, they have big expansion plans for the Washington D.C., Fairfax, Manassas and Kingstowne communities. The newest Firehouse Subs shop is located at 12120 Fairfax Towne Center.

What’s so special about Firehouse Subs? Each medium sub comes with 4 ounces of meat, that’s the same amount of meat as some competitor’s 12 inch subs. All of the subs contain hand-sliced and premium quality meat. Moreover, Firehouse Subs are served hot using a steamer that adds moisture, unlike a microwave.

The theme of the sub shop is derived from the 200 years of public service as firefighters the owner's family possesses. The décor and the sandwich names play off this fun firefighter theme.
