After a trip up to Maryland, the Tall Ship Providence returned home to Alexandria this weekend.

The ship returned with some fanfare, Zebra reported, with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge opening and hundreds of locals cheering it on from the shore.

The ship left back in April and had a touch-up while it was away. Now the ship will remain dockside as part of the new Senator John Warner Maritime Heritage Center.

Blossom is ready for love and is up for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria!

This 2-year-old girl has been through a lot and was in rough condition when she came to AWLA, according to AWLA spokesperson Erin Shackelford.

“She was found tied to a fence with a significant skin issue that caused her to be nearly hairless, itchy, and red and sore from scratching,” said Shackelford. “Thanks to the incredible AWLA animal care and veterinary team, Blossom is feeling much better. Her skin has healed and her hair is growing back nicely.”

While she may be a bit timid when meeting people, Blossom warms up quickly with the help of a few treats and gentle scratches!

Blossom loves to play and chasing toys is especially fun for her. This gentle girl is in need of a wonderful forever home full of love to grow into the best furry companion she can be!

A driver was hospitalized after she drove her car into Robcyns (3660 King Street) at the Bradlee Shopping Center.

The incident occurred around 3:20 p.m., according to the dispatch.

The driver was taken away on a stretcher and told ALXnow they accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.

“What’s important is that everyone is okay,” said owner Meghan Herzing. “The lady, the driver, is a customer. I know her, and she was crying and profusely apologizing.”

The crash is not even the first of its kind this year: another driver sent their car through the front window of the nearby Tropical Smoothie Cafe in February.

“Over the last six years this has happened to the Hallmark store, the Shoe Repair store, Starbucks and Tropical Smoothie,” Herzig said. A driver also slammed into the front of the Capital One bank branch at the shopping center a few years ago.

The vehicular mayhem at the Bradlee Shopping Center is in addition to a recent shots fired incident, last year’s fatal stabbing, and safety concerns about loitering teenagers among employees at the center.

A study by investment adviser firm SmartAsset found that Alexandria ranked sixth in an overview of the wealthiest counties (and cities) in Virginia, Alexandria Living Magazine first reported.

The survey looks at investment income, property value and per capita income. According to the website:

To identify the wealthiest counties, we compared all U.S. counties across three metrics: investment income, property value, and per capita income.

We started the analysis by calculating the Investment Index for each county by evenly weighing the Ordinary Dividends, Qualified Dividends, and Net Capital Gains. From there we calculated the Median Home Value, and the Per Capita Income for each county, and ranked them on all three metrics.

Alexandria ranked just below Fairfax City and just above Fauquier County. Alexandria had a lower median income — $105,450 — and lower investment income — $47,518 — but was boosted by its higher median home value — $608,562.

Alexandria’s neighbors nabbed higher spots on the list with Fairfax County coming in at number three and Arlington County at number two. The number one spot was Falls Church.
