Maybeury takes third place in national rubik’s cube competition
A team of 10 fifth graders from Maybeury Elementary recently took home a third place finish at the Washington Convention Center, competing in the regional You Can Do the Rubik’s Cube Final Competition. In its final round, the team bettered its time by almost a minute from an earlier qualifying round and the cubers solved 25 cubes in 4:56. This win also earned their math and science departments $150.00.
“We enjoy every opportunity to showcase our students’ talents in different ways,” said Eric Armbruster, the principal at Maybeury. “We are very proud of our students, their ability to perform very well under extreme pressure, and to think outside of the box. I congratulate the students and students’ teacher, Dwayne Cabaniss, for utilizing abstract application of math and thinking skills in a unique way – Go Maybeury!”

Short Pump brewery offers more than just beer
The restaurant and craft brewery opened in early June and features 10 beers made by female brewmaster Becky Hammond (pictured). This is the restaurant’s second location in Virginia; the first is in Arlington. Behind glass walls, customers watched the beer brewing in massive steel barrels. For our up-and-coming beer region, it makes sense that Short Pump would jump on board.
As I walked up to the back of the mall near the comedy club, I was taken aback by what I saw: at the top of the stairs was an overflowing restaurant with outdoor seating, large umbrellas and dangling outdoor lights. > Read more.
