Judy Gross continues to fight for her husband Alan’s release and has sued the U.S. government for failing to protect him.
It’s been three years since 63-year-old Potomac resident Alan Gross was arrested and jailed in a Cuban prison, but his wife, Judy, hasn’t given up the fight.

Temperatures reached 98 degrees Friday afternoon.
It's undeniably hot out on the golf course at Congressional Country Club. I'm going to take the editorial liberty to say that. But that hasn't stopped residents from Maryland, Virginia and DC from coming out in droves to see Tiger Woods. Those who came to the U.S. Open in 2011 were denied the opportunity when Woods pulled out of the tournament, but the loyals on Friday got a chance to see him shoot three under for the day and two under for the tournament so far. Woods isn't the only draw for golf lovers. "It sure beats working," said Jason Sutphin, a Fairfax, Va., resident lounging in the shade at the tournament. Sutphin came out with two other men. They'd given each other tickets for Father's Day. "We bought them for each other - with …
