VENDORS WANT A PIECE OF THE "POT PIE.."
Washington Post: Montgomery Blair Sibley might be best known as the lawyer who defended the "D.C. madam," the infamous escort service owner who claimed to attend to the needs of Washington's elite.  Sibley has a new focus these days, one that's luring a rabbi, a waitress, a State Department technician and a gaggle of other fledgling entrepreneurs: growing marijuana and selling it to sick people in the nation's capital."

BEER HEIST BUST
Insidenova.com: A King George man has been accused of robbing a county convenience store at gunpoint for a case of beer. Brian Steven Damron, who'll turn 32 later this month, is charged with armed robbery and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. According to Sheriff Steve Dempsey and court records, the incident occurred about 2:14 a.m. on Feb. 25 at the 7-Eleven at the intersection of State Route 3 and U.S. 301."

TEACHER CUTS
Gazette: "Montgomery County schools' Superintendent Jerry D. Weast released a revised list of potential cuts last week, preserving 25 high school teacher positions but putting some school staff, including middle school lunch hour aides and technology specialists, in their place on the chopping block. The staffing memorandum, dated March 2 and released to the schools, also restores 28 staff development and seven of the 15 Reading Recovery teacher positions that would have dissolved the program altogether. In addtion, only four school security assistants positions would be cut, instead of the 20 Weast initially proposed."
