The New Year's resolutions our local public figures did and didn't keep

From the alleged crimes of former Prince George's County executive Jack B. Johnson to the officer who whipped out a gun at a snowball fight, this year was full of surprises.

Buzz: Cheetahs, fires, and bedbugs

Many errors have been spotted in Virginia history texts. Historians have found dozens of errors since Virginia officials ordered a review of textbooks by Five Ponds Press, the publisher responsible for a controversial claim that African American soldiers fought for the South in large numbers during the Civil War. One error they found: New Orleans began the 1800s as a U.S. harbor, instead of as a Spanish colonial one. Take the quiz to see if you can correct the errors.
