She avoided more serious felony charges and was sentenced to nearly six months in jail. [Washington Post]

Sweeter Strawberries Coming — Virginia’s cold winter this year will mean a sweeter strawberry crop. Strawberry season will run a little late — starting in late May — but will yield excellent results. [CBS Local]
