    Mother of Five Scared Straight After Heart Attack in her 40s

    The Alexandria School Board is looking at adding lights to the football stadium at T.C. Williams High School to allow for Friday night games after years of debate with neighbors.

    A study is underway that could bring permanent lights to Parker-Gray stadium for the first time since it was built in the 1960s, The Washington Post reported. It's the only public high school football field in northern Virginia that does not have lights.

    School officials say it's time to give students, athletes and the community some Friday night events to rally around. The football team has played its home games on weekend afternoons. Football Coach Dennis Randolph says it's been a struggle to fill the bleachers and arrange schedules with other teams.

    Neighbors have long opposed stadium lights.
