    A MEMORABLE WEDDING, SORT OF...
    Fredericksburg.com: "With any luck, the bride and groom will get along better than some of their guests did at a wedding reception in King George County did this weekend. One man was stabbed and others suffered minor injuries during an altercation that erupted toward the end of the reception, police said. King George Sheriff's Lt. Chris Giles said deputies went to the Masonic Lodge on U.S. 301 about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in response to calls about a large fight in progress."

    JUVENILE JAIL TO WALDORF?
    SoMdNews.com: "The state has backed off a controversial plan to build a juvenile detention center in Nanjemoy, proposing to build in Waldorf instead.  Pending a public hearing and land acquisition, the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services plans to build its Southern Maryland Children’s Center, a 48-bed facility for temporary detention of minors ages 12 to 17, on a 19-acre parcel of land in the Acton Lane Industrial Park in northern Waldorf, DJS Secretary Sam Abed and Capital Outlay Director Carlton Richardson told the Charles County commissioners Wednesday."

    WHERE ARE THE SALAHIS?
    Loudoun Times: "Tareq and Michaele Salahi pleaded the fifth during a Congressional hearing where they were charged with crashing a White House state party in 2009.  Today, the Warren County couple inadvertently pleaded the fifth by not showing up at an 8:30 a.m. court hearing. The Salahis were on the docket for a Loudoun County District Court hearing with Judge Frank Buttery.  Loudoun resident Emily McCallum claims she paid the couple for a wine tour in celebration of her graduation. The couple did not follow through on an agreement and McCallum claims she was not refunded any money."
