Va News Topics: Oak Trees Cut Down, Theme Park Closure


Credit: Virginia Public Access Project

Residents of a Norfolk neighborhood were taken by surprise when the city cut down a stand of 200-year-old oak trees. And, Virginia’s tourism industry convinced the state to change the law decades ago so theme parks and hotels would have enough teenage workers to stay open every day through Labor Day, but this year one of those parks shut down for part of the final week of August. Those have been among the most read stories over the past week on the Virginia Public Access Project’s Va News link at More now from Fred Echols.
