    Inside NoVA: "Less than a year before a Dumfries woman was shot and killed in the parking lot of a Woodbridge Chick-fil-A Thursday she filed court documents saying she “lived in constant fear” of her husband.

    Police say 48-year-old Alice Jenkins Everette was shot multiple times as she sat in her car in the restaurant drive-through.

    Her estranged husband, Daniel Lunie Everette, 52, of 9149 Broken Oak Place in Burke, was charged with murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony."

    ANTAWN JAMISON FINALLY SELLS BETHESDA HOME

    Washington Examiner: "When the Wizards' Antawn Jamison was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, it may have been a better move for him on the court — but off the court it put him on the hook to sell a $4.15 million home during the bottom of one of the worst real estate markets this country has seen in decades.

    So what happened? The Cavs made the playoffs and Jamison's home in Bethesda sat. And sat, and sat. Until now.

    According to Urban Turf, Jamison's home is under contract for just under $4 million."

    WASHINGTON POST FOOD CRITIC SPENDS $70K A YEAR EATING
    Eater via DCist: "During a live chat, a reader asked Washington Post restaurant critic Tom Sietsema "How much do spend on restaurant meals each year?" His answer: "Personally and professionally? I'd guess about $70,000 or so." We're assuming that number includes meals for Sietsema's guests when he dines out for reviewing purposes — and the number isn't necessarily surprising or anything — but still, it's a lot of money."

    Most people know him for his comedy and acting, but Cosby is also a former Navy seaman. He served as a hospital corpsman from 1956 until he was honorably discharged in 1960.

    At a ceremony at the United States Navy Memorial and Naval Heritage Center along Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C., Cosby was named an honorary chief petty officer."
