Thousands pack into Centreville High School for a campaign appearance by President Obama.
"Hello Wildcats!" On Saturday afternoon, President Barack Obama ended two days of campaigning across Virginia at Centreville High School, where he spoke about the need to renew the American middle class and the economy. Central to his theme was his call to Congress to extend a Bush-era tax cut to families that make less than $250,000. Republicans want to see that cut applied to all, including families making more than $250,000. Obama has said previously that he would veto anything that includes tax cuts for all.

Pascoe's career game helps McLean earn semifinal berth
Winning in the playoffs often requires contributions from where you might not expect them. That's exactly what McLean got on Wednesday night against Centreville in the second round of the Northern Region basketball tournament.
