2. You Said It: “There stands the stage with nothing but three stumps and fake trees with one tree riddled with cute purposely-misspelled old-school wooden signs giving confusing directions and… a tail on it.” — Patch blogger Camela Speer with a behind the scenes look at Winnie the Pooh, a stage production at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.

3. ICYMI: There are hundreds of dollars worth of new fee increases at public universities in the Commonwealth.
4. Number of the Day: $30,000. That’s the estimated value of cell phones stolen from an AT&T store in the Manassas area. Police responded to an alarm and found that the front door had been forced open.
