Morning Buzz – Dec. 20, 2010

A daily digest of what’s going on in Fredericksburg, and what news from elsewhere is relevant here. Send suggestions to

This is a three-day week in City Hall. Most city employees get Thursday and Friday off for Christmas, but your trash collectors don’t. Thursday and Friday trash collections will not change this week.

A group of local women has been exploring the idea of starting a children’s museum in this area, possibly downtown. We hope to be able to tell you more about these plans early next year, but in the meantime, you can learn more and fill out a survey about what is being called the “Cobblestone Children’s Museum” here.

    There was a lot of police presence at the Target in Stafford yesterday around 8 PM; they even closed down the entrance to the parking lot around it for hours. I can’t find any news about what the heck happened.

    The disturbance was due to a report that Mayor Tomzac was spotted purchasing an exercise bike.

    The incident was a bomb threat. Note was left in a store bathroom. Sheriff’s Office bomb-sniffing K-9s were brought in to inspect the store and it was cleared to reopen.
