The decline of the Virginia coalfields will apparently bring an end to a century-old town. And Northern Virginia commuters may one day be able to get to work in Washington DC by water.

Those have been among the most read stories over the past week at the Virginia Public Access Project's Va. News link.

This report, provided by Virginia Public Radio, was made possible with support from the Virginia Education Association.
