READ MY LIPS
Gov. Martin O'Malley on Monday stopped short of pledging no tax increases if he wins a second term in Government House.
"It's my intent not to. It's my great hope not to," O'Malley (D) said in a meeting with reporters. "I'm not sure that there's any person who's run for office that has made that pledge and kept it. And I think it's probably irresponsible, especially at a time of war, to make that pledge," he said. (Gazette)

H1N1 VACCINES DISCARDED
A portion of the county's H1N1 vaccine has been discarded, but health officials are still encouraging the public to get what remains.

That leaves a supply of about 6,500 doses of the injectable form of the vaccine, which doesn't expire until next year. (The Capital

CAMERA NAB TEENS
Four Spotsylvania teen-agers weren't smiling when they had their pictures taken early Sunday, and they certainly weren't smiling later. Sheriff's spokeswoman Capt. Liz Scott said the four were caught on film stealing from a vehicle in the Sheraton Hills subdivision. Scott said deputies Kelly Mills and Larry Dibella went to the neighborhood Sunday to investigate multiple reports of larcenies and trespassing. She said there were at least eight reports of larcenies from vehicles. She said electronics, shoes and "basically anything of value" were taken. (Fredericksburg.com) 
 
BUSTED AT DULLES

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers took two people into custody at Washington Dulles International Airport April 10 after it was discovered they were trying to pass off other people’s passports as their own. The two, a 40-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man, were traveling on Canadian passports and arrived at Dulles from South Africa at about 7:30 a.m., CPB spokesman Steve Sapp said. (Loudoun Times)
