7-11 WORRIES
Alexandria Gazette Packet: "Neighbors on Harvard Street are preparing for a fight with Dallas-based convenience giant 7-Eleven, which recently filed an application for a special-use permit to open a new store in the Navy Reserve Association. Concerns range from traffic and parking to noise and litter. Some are worried that the convenience store will become a destination for the rowdy bar crowd as the stumble to the Metro after closing time." 

SEX SHOP "COMFORT ZONE" REMAINS OPEN
College Park Patch: "A controversial store on Baltimore Avenue will remain open at least until May, after the county's Board of Appeals failed to reach a decision on the store's compliance with its permit Wednesday evening. The Comfort Zone -- the sex store or variety store, depending who you ask — was referred to the county after store co-owner Robert Carl failed to comply with a zoning violation from the city of College Park's code enforcement.

DOGS: "BONE" APPETIT
Baltimore Sun: " Chai is a gal with a social life many would envy. Come spring and summer, you'll find her out two or three nights a week, dining al fresco, at any number of Baltimore-area dining establishments. Her favorite would have to be Shuckers in Fells Point, where they fix her a drink just the way she likes it. "When we say, 'Want to go to Shuckers?' she'll dance around like a nut and bark her head off," says Christopher Woodside, who owns the 82-pound bulldog. "She prefers ice in her water bowl and Shuckers gives it to her like that."

LATE NIGHT JOYRIDE, ARREST
Loudoun Times: "What police are calling a late night joyride in a fire truck led to the driving under the influence arrest and resignation of a volunteer firefighter early March 5. Two of the four off-duty firefighters with him have also resigned."
