Washington County libraries were closed on Sundays and Mondays during 2012.
Customers just wanted to say thank you or shake someone’s hand. That was the reaction from patrons at the R.H. Stafford Library following the news that Washington County would restore Sunday and Monday service at the library starting this year, said Chad Lubbers, manager of the Woodbury branch. The new hours go into effect this weekend. “Now, we’re back to where we should have been,” Lubbers said. “It feels like coming home after a long journey.” The Woodbury library will be open seven days a week until June, when it will close on Sundays through the end of August as part of a pilot program. Library officials will examine how that works and determine their options for hours in the future. One interesting note about the reduced hours in …

The arrest was made Sunday morning at the Holiday gas station of Radio Drive.
A man was arrested on a federal pornography warrant Sunday morning in Woodbury. It was a typical traffic stop that led police to identify the man, but he was making furtive movements in the vehicle and an officer drew a gun during the incident, said Washington County Sgt. Tom Stafford. There were no weapons in the car, he said. The arrest was made in the parking lot of the Holiday gas station off Radio Drive at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Stafford said.

The lights were out from Radio Drive to Woodbury Drive for more than an hour on Sunday.
No one was seriously injured in car crashes along Valley Creek Road after stoplights on the major Woodbury artery went out for more than an hour Sunday. A transformer blew and the lights on Valley Creek Road were out from Radio Drive to Woodbury Drive, said Woodbury Patrol Sgt. Dave Brennen. Some people were hospitalized as a result of the crashes, he said. The lights went out at about 1 p.m. and were back on by 2:20 p.m., Brennen said. There was one crash on Woodbury Drive near Antrim Road that happened just before the lights stopped working. “Just a bizarre coincidence,” Brennen said. There were at least two crashes caused by the lights being out, and police are looking into the possibility that there may have been a third, Brennen said…
