he polarized community debate over the Virginia Department of Transportation’s plans to build a new western access road to Dulles Airport was on full display Monday, but the outcome may hinge on a new study. The Board of Supervisors’ public input session at Briar Woods High School Monday night drew about 60 people who expressed concerns the project would impact their neighborhoods and businesses. Most comments focused on whether the proposed Dulles Air Cargo, Passenger, and Metro Access Highway should be built in the median of Rt. 50 or in a new alignment along the Broad Run south of Brambleton. Unsurprisingly, Brambleton residents have pushed for the Rt. 50 alignment, while those living in neighborhoods like South Riding, Stone Ridge and Kirkpatrick Farms along Rt. 50 have touted the northern route. However, many speakers said the debate should not be pitting neighborhood against neighborhood, but focus on which option is best for Loudoun County as a whole. “This was never about Brambelton vs. South Riding,” Brian Viola, vice president of the Brambleton Community Association said in the first comment of the evening. “I would hope you would help tamp that down. Somehow this got out of control. It is really about a road and people’s opinions of a road, not about neighborhoods.” Those in favor of the Rt. 50 route have said it more closely follows the county’s Countywide Transportation Plan, which already calls for interchanges at major intersections along the road, and would require taking much less private property. But those who live and work along Rt. 50 say they could not tolerate several more years of construction that make their commutes unbearable already, and that the land through which the northern route would be built already is planned for development that would have significant environmental impacts.

s they stand side by side, one difference is obvious. Retiring Superintendent Edgar B. Hatrick stands almost a full foot above Eric Williams, who will step in to Loudoun’s top education job in three weeks. But how their leadership styles, and vision for the school division, compare is yet to be seen. During a quick, two-day stop in Loudoun last week, Williams acknowledged that he has big shoes to fill, figuratively speaking. His wife asked him if he was crazy when he first told her he was considering following the longest serving superintendent in the region. “I have a habit of doing this,” following experienced and respected superintendents,” he said. Just six years ago, he was tasked with filling another set of big shoes when he took over as superintendent of York County School Division, following Steve Staples. Staples was Virginia’s second longest serving superintendent in one division, only behind Hatrick, and he was recently named Virginia Superintendent of Public Instruction. “It really is an honor to come to such a high-performing school division, and it’s an honor to follow an exemplary superintendent like Dr. Hatrick,” Williams said. “My wife may call me crazy, but I’m excited about the chance.” With Hatrick as his tour guide, Williams got a glimpse of Loudoun last Wednesday and Thursday. He stopped in at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, for which he will serve as the school division’s liaison, and ate breakfast with county leaders during County Chairman Scott K. York’s (R-At Large) annual State of the County address. “It’s been a good two days,” Williams said when Leesburg Today caught up with him. “I’ve been incredibly impressed with the strong sense of pride the community has in the schools and the level of civic engagement.”

Preserving The Archives



Leesburg Today/Margaret Morton

Historic Records Manager John Fishback points to the work of a decade—rows of neatly labeled acid-free boxes containing indexed, flat-filed and conserved documents.

fter a decade as the official caretaker of Loudoun’s historic records collection, John Fishback—a man that many consider a priceless asset himself—is saying goodbye. Fishback officially retired last Friday as the county’s historic records manager for the Circuit Court, and his successor quickly took over the reins. Eric Larson, who has been curator at the Loudoun Heritage Farm and the Loudoun Museum, started work as the new historic records manager Monday. His most recent job was helping care for the civil court

Loudoun, dating back to the 1700s, that got him interested in the historic records. Prior to Clemens’ election as Clerk of the Circuit Court in 2000, Fishback was working full time as a courtroom clerk for the judges and running the records file room. On his own time, he began working on the archives. Clemens quickly became aware of the value of the county’s collection through Fishback’s efforts. In 2003, Clemens went to thenCounty Administrator Kirby Bowers, and said, “We need to invest more money—this is a real treasure.” The Board of Supervisors agreed. “They got it,” Clemens recalled. In FY04, the supervisors created the position of archival

their face, they are only part of the potential— especially for Dulles Airport. Only about 50 percent of the property of the Dulles Airport campus is developed “The bottom line is not all the land is being productively used today,” MWAA CEO Jack Potter said. “We are going to work to see if we can continue to grow non-aviation revenue, starting with land.” Potter said that there is an opportunity to build another hotel on airport property, as well as land adjacent to the future Rt. 606 Metro station at the airport’s northern border that could be developed. “We want to work cooperatively with neighboring developers and the county,” Potter said of plans for the roughly 500 acres. “We are very grateful that the county has brought some developers to the table to discuss how we might use that land…to help increase the tax base and fit in with the economic development plans.” The future of that land is important to the fiscal health of Dulles Airport because, Potter said, “whenever we make a dollar in a non-aviation act it goes right to the bottom line to help the aviation program.” Continued on Page 30

hat Dulles Airport is the “economic engine” of Loudoun County is a phrase repeated in business and county government circles for decades. Monday, the impact of both Dulles and Reagan National airports on Loudoun and Northern Virginia were explored in greater detail. During a Northern Virginia Regional Commission meeting at the Dulles Marriott, representatives from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, local boards of supervisors, tourism organizations, federal and state government and airlines gave their perspective of the airports—their successes, their needs and the challenges for the future. To open the meeting, Loudoun County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) said the growth of Loudoun County since he first started on the planning commission in 1992 could be directly correlated with the growth of Dulles Airport “in our front yard.” “It is a very vital part of our economic devel-

opment strategy, as it is for the rest of the region,” he said. “It is the gateway not only to domestic [locations], but for international economic development,” he said. He noted that Dulles gives Loudoun direct access to 36 countries, which represent 80 percent of the world’s economy, and that access is continuing to grow. Next week, Air China will begin four flights weekly to and from Beijing. “And they are already booked for three months solid,” York said. MWAA’s most recent economic impact study for Dulles and Reagan National, the Dulles Toll Road and the Dulles Rail project, using 2012 figures, shows Dulles Airport contributed almost $2 billion in local and state taxes. “Most of the impact is from businesses and passengers at Dulles,” Margaret McKeough, COO of MWAA, told the audience. The benefit for Loudoun County, she said, is “just shy of $100 million.” In addition, she said, visitor spending in 2012 from people who travel through the two airports was more than $12 billion. “More than 8 million tourism visitors traveled through our airports in 2012,” she said. But as large as those numbers appear on

case archives in the Clerk of the Circuit Court’s office. Loudoun has that rare thing in Virginia, a complete set of records that go back to its founding in 1757. It is one of only about five municipalities out of 120 that can say that, according to Loudoun Clerk of the Circuit Court Gary Clemens. Clemens credits Fishback with making the frail collection accessible for public use— sorting the many documents, identifying them, indexing them, repairing and preserving them, placing them in acid-free boxes and digitizing them. Fishback had no formal archival training, just a strong interest in history. It was researching his mother’s side of the family history in

he Loudoun County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating another case in which an armed man attacked a woman and told her to remove clothing. Only, this time, the victim was sexually assaulted. The latest incident is the fifth since last year. Around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 31, deputies were called to Reston Hospital Center, where a woman was being treated for an assault that happened around 5 a.m. on Stanford Square near Dulles Town Center. Two other cases, one Feb. 9 and one Feb. 14, also happened on Stanford Square. In Saturday’s attack, the 52-year-old victim reported a man knocked on the window of her vehicle and then opened her car door, brandished a firearm and demanded money. The man then ordered her out of her vehicle and told her to remove her pants. At one point during the robbery, the man sexually assaulted the victim, according to the report. The suspect fled after hearing the victim’s friend coming to meet her. He was described as black, about 6 feet tall and in his late 20s—a description that matches the other four assaults, although the suspect in the previous assaults was described as having a “medium complexion.” Detectives are working to determine

whether Saturday’s robbery is related to the similar earlier cases, according to agency spokeswoman Liz Mills. In Saturday’s assault, the man was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up to help conceal his face. Loudoun deputies are also investigating a robbery that happened about half an hour later, at 5:30 a.m., on East Severn Way, where a 62-year-old woman was found injured. According to the report, a man tried to grab her purse and after a brief struggle, he struck the woman with a blunt object, which the victim described as a handgun. The victim suffered injuries described as minor and the man ran away with the purse. In that case, the robber was described as being 5-feet-8-inches to 5-feet-10-inches tall, and wore a blue hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses. The suspect in that case also had the hood pulled up over his head to conceal his face. Anyone with any information regarding the cases is asked to contact Det. W. Promisel at 703-777-0475. Caller wishing to remain anonymous may call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. A reward up to $1,000 is offered if the information leads to an arrest and indictment. n

By the end of this year, Loudoun Water intends to update the rate study with the new demands from existing and future customers, updated infrastructure and operating costs. If adopted at the June 12 meeting, the new rate would be effective July 1.

apidly expanding use of the authority’s reclaimed water system has spurred the Loudoun Water Board of Directors to consider a 10 percent increase in its user rate.

The letter, which was reportedly posted on the Syrian president’s Facebook page May 25, thanked Assad and the Syrian army for fighting against the rebels, forces Black says “are dominated by our arch-enemy al-Qaeda.” His letter comes in the midst of Syrian’s three-year civil war. President Barack Obama in 2011 called on Assad to step down and has since supported rebels seeking to oust the Syrian president. “The question the United States needs to ask is what is our business in Syria and should we be helping the al-Qaeda-linked rebels to take over the country,” Black said, speaking Thursday from his office in Ashburn. He said he is most concerned the United States will arm the rebels with more advanced weaponry. “If they get a hold of ground-to-air missiles, they can shoot down Syrian MiGs [fighter planes], but they also will be able to shoot down United States airliners at Dulles.” The letter has Democrats lining up to criticize Black, calling it “bizarre” and “unacceptable.” The Loudoun County Democratic Committee last week called for Black’s resignation. “Bashar al-Assad is a brutal dictator who uses Sarin gas on his own people. Writing a letter of support to him is a disturbing moral failing on the part of Senator Black,” Committee Chairwoman Valerie Suzdak said in a statement. “Further, he openly criticizes our operations in Syria, and implies that President Obama does not have the support of U.S. government officials. This is unacceptable. Senator Black owes our country an apology and should step down immediately.” Black said he occasionally sends letters to foreign leaders when he feels an issue calls for it. In this case, he said he felt it was time to start “a dialogue about the wisdom of our perpetual warfare in the Middle East.” He also recently penned a letter to Obama cautioning him against providing ground-toair missiles to the Syrian rebels. Black has represented the 13th Senate District, which includes western Loudoun, since 2012 and the 32nd District in the House of Delegates from 1998-2006. According to his campaign website, he enlisted in the Marines in 1963 and flew 269 combat helicopter missions in Vietnam. n

Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely by each client’s risk tolerance. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record.”The rankings are based on the universe of applications submitted to Barron’s. The selection process begins with a nomination and application provided to Barron’s. Principals of Edelman Financial Services LLC self-nominated the firm and submitted quantitative and qualitative information to Barron’s as requested.

On New Move-In-Now Homes in Northern Virginia


“Alternative 2 does negatively affect the Brambleton community and the future development. Anyone attempting to say otherwise is either misinformed or intentionally misleading,” Brambleton resident Tim Markle said. “The question is, what kind of county do you want? Do you want to look like Chantilly? Do you want to look like Manassas? Or do you want the county to look like it does now?” Many business owners along Rt. 50 implored supervisors to bring them relief after years of construction in the corridor have snarled traffic and limited access to their properties. “I really enjoy being a business in Loudoun County, but if you asked me today to move to Loudoun County trying to move trucks and people, I don’t think I would want to move here today,” John Edgemond, who owns GreenWorks Landscaping on Rt. 50, said. He said the board should be looking at the issue based on “how can I make this a viable community for people to come here and do business.” Monday night supporters for the northern route outnumbered those in favor of following Rt. 50—a trend that bore out in comments to VDOT. With around 3,500 comments received, 2,400 were in favor of the Brambleton-area route and 918 supported Rt. 50. The route for a new four-lane limited access highway from Northstar Boulevard north of Rt. 50 following the Broad Run floodplain to the intersection of Arcola Road and Rt. 606— known as Alternative 2—was one of the original three proposed by VDOT. But last summer, some Loudoun supervisors objected, saying they wanted to see something that followed more closely the Countywide Transportation Plan and melded with development in the area. The new route—known as Alternative 3C—would make Rt. 50 limited access, with six lanes for general traffic and two median lanes— one eastbound and one westbound—reserved for vehicles going to and from Dulles Airport. In addition, access to the airport lanes would be provided at the Rt. 50/Rt. 606 interchange and at the Rt. 50 interchanges planned at Northstar Boulevard, Gum Springs Road and Loudoun County Parkway. The plan also includes the widening of Old Ox Road between Rt. 50 and Loudoun County Parkway to six lanes. In early April, VDOT announced the Rt. 50 alignment was its preferred option. The Board of Supervisors was expected to weigh in with its preference, but a new state law has placed the process on hold. The law requires that VDOT evaluate all significant transportation projects for their ability to relieve congestion, improve economic development, and improve accessibility and safety. Subsequent legislation requires funding be applied first to those projects with the greatest congestion mitigation. However, the model for evaluating projects has not been finalized, leaving the environmental study for the Dulles Access Road in flux. “The study is on hold until the prioritization model is approved,” VDOT project manager Tom Fahrney said Monday night. Both options will be put through the model to determine which produces better results. That revelation led many speakers to ask for a time out on the project as a whole, especially given its ultimate connection to the proposed Bi-County Parkway south from Loudoun to I-66 in Prince William County. “It sounds like they really want to get trucks out to the Bi-County Parkway. Fair enough, but that road isn’t even there,” South Riding resident Danny O’Brien said. Outside the hearing, representatives of the Piedmont Environmental Council were handing out fliers suggesting that neither of the options was necessary and instead that Loudoun supervisors should be pushing to get that money from the state to complete the road network envisioned in the Countywide Transportation Plan. That idea gained traction with several speakers. “The Bi-County Parkway is not a done deal,” Aldie area resident Lisa Melton said. “We’re putting the cart before the horse. Or in this case we’re putting the cargo before the commuter.” n

That public engagement also greeted him Thursday night, as the Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents hosted a reception for Williams and invited the community to come get to know the incoming superintendent. A line stretched 40 people deep at one point with parents, students and other community members hoping to get some face time with Williams, who formally begins the job July 1. “I came because I’m interested to see what he’s like compared to Dr. Hatrick,” Ashburn resident Mark Brown said as he waited his turn. “I have five kids, so I have a lot of interest in how he’ll lead the school system.” “I want to know his vision for the smaller schools,” said Muffy Roby, PTA president at Hamilton Elementary, one of the schools that was under consideration for closure earlier this year. “We’re hoping he’ll recognize that both small and large schools have a place in the county,” Hamilton Elementary PTA vice president Jennifer Seekford added. “He seems really nice and personal,” Broad Run High School junior Madison Brown said after speaking with Williams. He asked her what she was involved in at school, and she mentioned she would serve as editor of the school yearbook this fall. “He asked me to follow up with him and let him know how it goes.” The night was a starting point for what Williams said he sees as his task over the next year—to get to know the community and build relationships. He offered an introduction of his own at the LEAP reception. With a 30-minute PowerPoint presentation, complete with photos and

videos, Williams told stories about his fifthgrade teacher who inspired him to go into education and his favorite moments as a teacher, principal and superintendent, that together illustrate his philosophy on public education. He said, as a kid, it was engaged learning and relationships with great teachers that delivered lessons that he still remembers to this day. “Too often across this nation educators have an attitude of let’s race through the curriculum—without a focus on deeper, longer lasting learning—and a high-stakes testing environment has led to this,” he said. “It leads teachers to set aside what they know are effective lessons…because they have tests hanging over their heads. “I’m not saying junk the curriculum. We need to teach the content, but do it in a way that there’s a joy for teaching and learning. There’s student engagement and then that learning is longer lasting.” He also answered a question that’s likely on the minds of many who have only known Hatrick as superintendent—how much change will this new guy bring? To that, Williams repeated words of wisdom offered by his daughter Lexie when he first took the superintendent position in York County. “She told me, ‘Dad, don’t mess it up.’” Williams laughed and added, “Actually her statement has a lot of truth to it. You don’t want to mess with a really high-performing school division. The stupidest thing for me to do would be to come in with a wrecking ball mentality.” He said he wants to sustain and build on the excellence of the school system. “I do say build on because just keeping things running is certainly not a sufficient goal.” n

wenty-nine students at Loudoun Country Day School were told last week they will soon be able to go into the Calvert Marine Museum and say, ‘I’d like to see my fossils in collections.” The middle school students’ names, along with science teacher Adrienne Corso’s, will go down in history for a discovery of prehistoric fossils. Jason Osborne and Aaron Alford, founders of the nonprofit Paleo Quest, made the announcement at the Leesburg-area private school last Wednesday, with camera crews from Voice of America there to document the occasion. “You helped us in our research, so we want to give you credit for your work,” Alford told the students, who absorbed the news with gasps and wide eyes. The students’ discoveries were made in December 2012 when Osborne and Alford, through their citizen science program SharkFinder, delivered sediment from the Calvert Formation in parts of Maryland and Virginia to the school. Under the direction of their science teachers, the students were asked to roll up their sleeves and carefully sift through sand, bits of clay and shell fragments in search of fossils. Eighth-grader Patrick Thompson said when his teacher dumped a bucket of what looked like gravel in front of him 18

months ago, he took the assignment to search for fossils seriously. “I remember telling my friend, this is awesome. We have a chance to make a scientific discovery. I hope we find something.” And they did. Researchers at the University of Maryland confirmed what the students found is “scientifically significant.” What they found, however, cannot yet be disclosed. Osborne said it is likely shark teeth or ray vertebrae, but it will not be announced publicly until the findings are recorded by the university and the Calvert Marine Museum. “In the science world, you have to worry about being scooped,” he said. Osborne and Alford should know. The two spend much of their time recovering fossils and documenting fossil formations at some of the most difficult to reach areas of the region. During their visit to Loudoun Country Day School last week, Osborne and Alford showed the students videos of the two of them searching for signs of life from 19 million years ago in deep-water creeks as dark as root beer. “Imagine seeing something that has never before been seen by a human—you’re the first person to see that species,” Alford said. “How many times can you say you’re the first person to do something? That’s a pretty cool thing, and that’s why we do this.” They encouraged the stu-

driel Sumathipala has another first-place ribbon to add to his collection. The Broad Run High School sophomore won the 2014 Virginia BioGENEius Challenge and will represent Virginia at the International BioGENEius Challenge during the 2014 BIO International Convention in San Diego later this month. Adreil’s winning project focused on coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in the world. His research developed a low-cost, point-of-care test to detect cholesterol and oxidized lowdensity lipoprotein, biomarkers of coronary heart disease. “I presented the problem being investigated, the research goals, methods, results, and implications for the biotech

industry,” Adriel wrote in an email to Leesburg Today. “The research presented in this poster came from extensive and advanced lab-based research I did this academic year on developing biosensors for cholesterol monitoring.” At the 2014 BIO International Convention, Adriel will get a first-hand look at a career in the biotechnology industry. The first place winner in the international competition will receive a $7,500 cash prize, the second place winner will receive $5,000, the third place winner will receive $2,500 and the fourth place winner will receive $1,000. Adriel’s name may sound familiar. As a Farmwell Station Middle School student, he won first place in the Virginia History Day Junior Website competition in 2012 and won Best of Fair at the Loudoun County Regional Science and Engineering Fair in 2013. n

responsibility. “After that I really looked into who my grandfather was, and he became this complete hero to me,” Mena said. “I realized my culture and my heritage are not something that I should be embarrassed of; in fact it is something that I should be proud of. That is what he taught me—to believe in yourself and stand up for what you believe in. He’s inspired me to dedicate my life to something like he did.” Mena’s maternal aunt also inspired her. After being educated in the United States, Rangina Hamidi returned to Afghanistan in 2003 to start Kandahar Treasure, one of the few women-run businesses. Kandahar Treasure employs women artisans to make embroidered products for sale. Mena’s mother serves as the U.S. coordinator for the business and as a child Mena would put price tags on items or help sort them in her parents’ basement. As she got older she traveled to events where the products from Kandahar Treasure would be sold. “There I met women from Afghanistan…and I understood how important it is to empower women in Afghanistan at this point in time,” she said. In the fall, Mena will attend George Mason University. She plans to major in global affairs with a minor in conflict analysis and resolution. Then it is on to law school, she said, and eventually a high-profile post—in the state department, the United Nations or the Refugee Council. “I want to really get myself up there so I can bring the biggest amount of change possible on the biggest scale I can.” —Erika Jacobson Moore



I was making was going into savings and towards my education and my future.” With all her work, she managed to tally a 4.18 GPA her senior year, enough to earn an almost full ride to West Virginia Wesleyan College, her mother’s alma mater. She hasn’t declared a major, but is signed up for a class called Appalachian Studies. “I’m excited about that because of working in West Virginia I have experienced a lot of the harsher effects of living in a more rural or impoverished community. I love learning about that and seeing how you can make an impact on underprivileged children especially.” Bailey says she’d love to one day own a bakery, a passion passed down from her parents as a kid, and later to teach. “I want to be the kind of teacher who has gone and done things and been in the field,” she said, “especially when kids are asking me questions about what they want to do with their life and future.” Bailey is graduating from high school with more work experience and, arguably, more life experience than most of her peers. Still, she’s managed to finish this school year with better grades than any other year in her high school career. “I have a favorite quote by Winston Churchill,” she said. “’Success is not final, and failure is not fatal. It’s the courage to continue that counts.’” — Zack Wajsgras

hen you hear a high school senior say it is her life’s goal to “empower every single underprivileged human being on this planet and make them feel valued and heard and cared for,” it might be easy to write it off as big dreams. When Mena Ayazi says it, you believe it. The Potomac Falls High School senior comes from a family of people who have dedicated their lives to bettering the world around them, and Mena is poised to follow in their footsteps. At Potomac Falls, she is an editor of the newspaper, creative director of the student council, a member of varsity debate team, founder and president of the UNICEF Club and co-president of the Muslim Student Association. But Mena’s story really began thousands of miles away from Sterling. Both of her parents left Afghanistan as young people, her mother’s family escaping after the 1979 Soviet invasion, traveling through the Khyber Pass and being smuggled across the border. Eventually both sides of her family settled in Virginia. “Growing up with a different culture, especially one that is so misunderstood, it influenced me a lot,” Mena said. After the 9/11 attacks, Mena often heard racist remarks directed at her. “I was actually embarrassed by my culture.” As she grew up, however, that began to change. In 2007, her maternal grandfather, Ghulam Haider Hamidi, was called back to Afghanistan to become mayor of Kandahar. He served in that position until 2011 when he was assassinated by a suicide bomber— an attack for which the Taliban claimed

John Champe High School

ailey Stanton embodies a typical, friendly, hard-working high school girl. She’ serves in leadership positions in the Latin Club, Key Club and on the yearbook, and was voted John Champe’s first homecoming queen last year. But, aside from her successes in school, it’s what Bailey does after school that’s most impressive. Bailey came to John Champe two years after spending her freshman and sophomore years at Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax. She transferred after her father lost his job, which sent her family into bankruptcy. With new financial burdens on her mind, Bailey knew paying college tuition was going to be difficult for her family, so she decided to try to relieve some of that pressure. In October, she got a full-time job as a customer service clerk at Harris Teeter. She also works as a seasonal snowboarding instructor and is training to become a waitress at a café in West Virginia. Balancing a full-time job with her schoolwork has defined much of her senior year. “Every kid is busy. We juggle sports, we juggle school, but especially toward the middle of this year, when I was working until 11 o’clock at night, [I learned] that it’s all about being appreciative of what you have,” she said. “I was just thankful that the money

ounty Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) painted a positive picture of Loudoun—particularly when it comes to improving transportation—during his annual report to the Chamber of Commerce last week at the Belmont County Club. Walking the audience through a Countywide Transportation Plan map of eastern Loudoun, York pointed to project after project that was either under construction or funded to move ahead. Most of them are a result either of new state funds or the board’s decision to dedicate revenues generated by 2 cents of the real estate tax rate to transportation. York said there is $737 million over six years dedicated to transportation projects in the county’s Capital Improvement Program, $12.8 million of which is coming from local taxes. In addition, $41.7 million is anticipated to make its way to Loudoun from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority as a result of last year’s state transportation funding package. York said the state revenue projections are “on target,” but there is a concern with which the NVTA is still grappling. A provision in the state legislation does not require the larger pot of money dedicated for regional projects to be put toward projects in Loudoun, but could be used for projects considered to be “for Loudoun’s benefit.” “It is possible you could see some theoretical spending in Fairfax that would benefit primarily folks in Loudoun,” York said. He added that the NVTA is continuing to work through those particulars. Among the projects he highlighted were: • Belmont Ridge Road/Rt. 7 interchange: expected to go to bid this summer with construction starting next year; problems acquiring right of way from property owners have delayed the project, York said. • Ashburn Village Boulevard/Rt. 7 interchange: being built by the One Loudoun developer, construction is expected to begin in August; • Pacific Boulevard: the extension north from Nokes Boulevard to connect to Russell Branch Parkway is underway by the Kincora developer; • Gloucester Parkway: construction bids for the extension from Nokes Boulevard over the Broad Run to Loudoun County Parkway came in lower than anticipated. York said the overall cost of the project, which the county is fronting to be paid back by the developer, has dropped to $35 million, from $40 million; • Belfort area: area along Rt. 28 had $9 million

allocated to it for improvements, and right of way acquisition is ongoing; • Rt. 606/Old Ox Road: the county teamed with the state government on this expansion project, which came in with a $78 million bid for construction; • Rt. 28: the county received approval from the NVTA to do “spot improvements,” including the construction of another lane from Sterling Boulevard south. York also touted the board’s economic development efforts during its term, saying he believed the county finally has the “right team” in place to continue drawing businesses to Loudoun. “We have the best team we have ever had in the department,” he said, noting that 5,200 new jobs were added in 2013 and by the end of FY14 the county will have added 1.9 million square feet of commercial space to the tax rolls. “And there will be more great news coming to the board [soon],” York said. The recent Urban Land Institute analysis of development that should occur around Loudoun’s future Metro stations, led to questions about the future of office development in the county. Russ Gestl of Buchanan Partners, which is developing Arcola Center, commented some developers are going forward with office construction to comply with proffered construction phasing requirements, but the high office vacancy rates in Fairfax may make the space difficult to fill. York acknowledged that the declining office market is something the board is going to have to confront, especially since it plays such a large role in Loudoun’s commercial development plans. n

“He doesn’t walk many guys ever.” Sam Plank Baseball head coach

Stone Bridge pitcher Brett Kreyer

“He doesn’t walk many guys ever,” Plank said. “He pounds the zone…he rarely gets hit consecutively. That’s why he doesn’t give

up many runs. We talk about limits and damage, and great pitchers step up when they have to. He’s been put in that number-one role [for] the last month and he’s stepped up for us big time.” The Bulldogs led 5-0 after five innings and were up 9-1 heading into the top of the seventh after scoring four runs in the sixth. Two consecutive singles by Josh Greenberg and Shane Scully preceded a John Callahan bunt, and with Greenberg and Scully on

second and third, respectively, Kyle Palmer drove the ball out to the warning track in straightaway center, scoring the two base runners. Dave Mocabee then swung on a payoff pitch and homered to left, seemingly putting the game out of reach. However, a walk, two singles, a fielder’s choice followed by another walk and a double gave North Stafford a bit of life. After a shaky two-thirds of an inning by Justin Zaferakis, Lawton Riggs came in to seal the deal, and did just that with a six-pitch strikeout. n

JB Bukauksas Shut Down For Rest Of Season

t wasn’t the prettiest of wins, but all Stone Bridge baseball head coach Sam Plank could do in the end was smile as his Bulldogs defeated North Stafford 9-5 Monday night in Ashburn to advance to the semifinals of the 5A North Region tournament Wednesday against Marshall. Stone Bridge (21-1) jumped out to a 4-0 lead early courtesy of two runs in each of the first two innings, and chasing North Stafford freshman starter Ryan Kennedy from the mound after just 1.1 innings of action. That offensive eruption was combined with stellar work on the mound from sophomore lefty Brett Kreyer, who threw six innings while giving up just one run; he sat down batters in order in four of those innings.

InsideNova Sports

s a precautionary measure, Stone Bridge senior standout pitcher JB Bukauskas has been shut down for the season as a pitcher due to tendonitis in his throwing shoulder. The right-hander, who has signed with the University of North Carolina, has appeared at the plate more often now and batted seventh in the order on Monday as the designated hitter in the Bulldogs’ 9-5 win over North Stafford in the 5A North Region Tournament first round. He also hit a walk-off RBI single on Wednesday to win the Conference 14 championship. “It happens in baseball,” Stone Bridge head coach Sam Plank said of his star’s injury. “It’s nothing bad, it’s just [when] you

get a little inflammation, it hurts. We try to do the right thing here and it’s about the kids, not us.” Bukauskas, who was clocked throwing 100 miles per hour during a game earlier this season, says that his shoulder feels “great,” but he can’t see any mound action for the next two weeks, on doctor’s orders. That would not be in time for him to throw in the state tournament, which starts next week. With that said, he embraces the opportunity to support his teammates when he’s not at the plate: “It’s not hard to do. I love being in the dugout with all my friends and it’s still fun to make this run for a state championship,” Bukauskas said. Another hot topic has been his draft status, something that has been widely discussed since his recent rise to prominence. The draft starts on Thursday, and

Bukauskas, who is rated among the top 50 draft prospects, affirmed his commitment to UNC. “The draft was obviously a good option, but my heart’s in North Carolina. I want to go to school,” Bukauskas said Bukauskas wrote a letter to every MLB team explaining his decision, something that his coach said was an admirable move. “He’s a very mature kid. He told me ‘I believe in myself.’ I respect that,” Plank said. “He did a lot of research, and a lot of the research shows that, especially in the ACC type of baseball, you’ve got a better shot if you go a couple years in college because it’s like playing Double-A baseball.” Bukauskas, who was named the Gatorade State Baseball Player of the Year, went 7-0 with a 0.00 ERA, 88 strikeouts, six walks and 10 hits allowed in 41.1 innings this season. n

Country Star Phil Vassar Takes The Stage In Leesburg

or the many fans of country singer/ songwriter Phil Vassar, his appeal lies in his ability to perfectly distill the joys—and sometimes the sorrows—of everyday life. The Nashville-based hitmaker, known for his insightful lyrics and mad piano skills, plays Leesburg’s Tally Ho June 13. A musician’s musician and a crowd-pleasing entertainer at the same time, Vassar has had seven top-five country songs as a singer/songwriter, including “Carlene,” “Last Day of My Life,” “American Child” and the crowd favorite, chart topping ”Just Another Day in Paradise.” Vassar has also penned hits for superstars including Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw, cowriting McGraw’s hit “My Next Thirty Years.” “I’ve always considered myself a songwriter who plays piano. Songwriters definitely look at life a little differently,” Vassar said in a recent interview with Leesburg Today, adding that there’s never a shortage of subjects to write about. “It’s like sensory overload. So many ideas fly at your face 24 hours a day. You’ve just got to catch the right one.” Vassar made his breakthrough in Nashville more than 20 years ago, and his staying power lies primarily in his ability to connect with fans with funny or poignant lyrics. “Country music is so lyrical,” he said. “More than anything it’s about what it says. It’s got to be real. People have to be able to relate to it… Everybody has good days and bad days. They go through breakups or divorces or they’re in love. All that stuff happens. It’s about finding a cool new way to say all those things.” Vassar’s technique on the piano also is a draw for fans. He’s a self-taught instrumentalist whose idols include Bruce Hornsby, Billy Joel, Elton John and Jerry Lee Lewis. “They’re the bar for me,” he said. For the Lynchburg native, next week’s Leesburg gig is a homecoming of sorts. Vassar has family and friends in both the Lynchburg area and Northern Virginia. His mother and sister will be at the Tally Ho show. Growing up in Lynchburg, money was tight, and music lessons weren’t in the budget. But Vassar’s family was storing a relative’s piano in the basement, and he was unable to resist the instrument’s pull. Vassar recalled hearing the Commodores’ hit “Easy (Like Sunday Morning)” in the late ’70s and being inspired to pick it out on the borrowed piano. After a few

attempts, he was hooked, and began developing a repertoire of songs learned by ear between football practices. “I never took lessons,” he said. “For me it was one of those things—I just wanted to play so bad.” Vassar formed a band in Lynchburg and continued to play gigs while studying business at James Madison University. Vassar embraced the thriving central Virginia music scene in the mid-80s with friends like Dave Matthews, who was then based in Charlottesville and exploded to international acclaim in the early 2000s. Vassar moved to Nashville in the early ’90s and has made his home in the country music mecca for the past 25 years. He quickly realized that he’d have to step up his game to make it. “When I moved to Nashville, I thought I was a songwriter until I met the real songwriters…It’s almost like you want to go home. I had to get to work and just do it,” he said. “I was trying to write songs like everybody else and then one day it just clicked. I started writing songs that I liked.” Vassar continued his self-taught piano work and bought and operated a nightclub in Nashville where he played and sang his own compositions, often backed up by members of the band now featured on the popular TV drama “Nashville.” There, he caught the attention of musicians like Jo Dee Messina and Collin Raye who began recording his songs. With a few hits under his belt and with the voice and persona of a country music star, it was only a matter of time until Vassar was offered a recording contract of his own. The late ’90s and early 2000s was a productive time. In 1999, he was named ASCAP’s Country Music Songwriter of the Year. The same year, he signed his first recording contract with Arista and produced a series of hits of his own over the following eight years. As his own singing career began to take off in the late ’90s, Vassar sold the club and has focused on recording and touring since then. The hits have been fewer and further between since the end of the last decade, but Vassar has maintained a strong fan base and a full touring schedule. He has not released a new record in five years, but is recording new material and hopes to release a single by the end of the year. For Vassar, who turned 50 last week, performing is still a source of joy. “It’s all about touring and writing songs,” he said. “We have a great fan base. I want to do that until I don’t want to do it anymore. I’m

having way more fun doing it. The pressure’s off.” For Vassar, the life experience that comes with age is an asset for a songwriter and musician, and he’s skeptical of young country stars seeking fame without working on the craft that goes into it. “A lot of people want to be famous and forget the part that gets you there,” he said.

“A lot of people want to be famous and forget the part that gets you there. Bob Dylan never went out and said I want to be famous. He was just a great songwriter… Fame is the ugly nuclear waste of talent, but everybody wants to bypass the cool stuff and go straight to that part.” Phil Vassar Songwriter

“Bob Dylan never went out and said I want to be famous. He was just a great songwriter… Fame is the ugly nuclear waste of talent, but everybody wants to bypass the cool stuff and go straight to that part.” With the pressure off as he enters a new decade, Vassar is embracing life as a seasoned musician and the life’s wisdom that has earned him the respect of so many fans. “It’s got to be real,” he said. “You’ve got to love what you do and you’ve got to write about things that mean something to you— not something you don’t know anything about. I’m going to be a better songwriter as I get older because I see the world differently now.” n Phil Vassar plays the Tally Ho Theatre in Leesburg Friday, June 13, at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.).

“For a whole host of reasons, it makes sense to try and put the breaks on the growth at Reagan and really focus on growth at Dulles.”

from this point forward. The larger the number of enplanements at an airport, the lower the cost the airport charges the airlines per passenger. “That puts a lot of pressure on Reagan,” Potter said. And the smaller airport, with only about 800 acres, is not primed for that increase in use. “The infrastructure at Reagan is going to have to change.” Conversely, with its 12,000 acres, Dulles

To that end, Potter said cargo is going to be increasingly important to Dulles Airport, with airport leaderships eyeing emerging markets, like flowers and pharmaceuticals, for growth. In the past several years, with the recession, domestic passenger activity at Dulles Airport has continued to fall off, dropping from 18.8 million in 2007 to 15 million in 2013. On the flip side, the international passenger counts have continued to grow at Dulles Airport, but Potter said the domestic travel continues to be a concern. In addition to the recession, increased domestic travel from Reagan National has negatively impacted Dulles Airport. While a decade ago Dulles saw almost 5 million more enplanements, or people boarding an aircraft at the airport, than National, in 2014 their numbers were within 100,000 of each other. National is expected to surpass Dulles in enplanements

Airport has the capacity now to handle 40 million passengers a year, but only has around 20 million people passing through its doors. “For a whole host of reasons, it makes sense to try and put the breaks on the growth at Reagan and really focus on growth at Dulles,” Potter said. Part of the reason that Reagan National has continued to grow is the relaxation of the federal regulations governing its use. A federally instituted “perimeter rule” previously limited flights from National to no farther than 1,250 miles. But the federal government in recent years has provided numerous exceptions, allowing for flights as far away as Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Seattle. That causes problems from Dulles. “MWAA and Dulles and National were set up as a system, so they would both grow with strength into the decades,” Nancy Van Duyne, United Airlines’ vice president of congressional affairs, said. Van Duyne used the Salt Lake City route as an example. “United used to serve [Salt Lake City] from Dulles. So did Delta. But in the last FAA reauthorization bill Delta received the ability to provide service at DCA [to Salt Lake City], so they moved their flights to DCA and took them away from Dulles,” she said. Ultimately, the lower demand for United flights to Salt Lake City from Dulles “became so great that we took down our flights. Now there is no flight, unless you go to DCA. And this isn’t the only market that is under that kind of stress.” She said United is committed to having a hub at Dulles and to its partnership with MWAA, “but we also have to run a business.” “The picture for Dulles is full of lots of potential, but it is going to take the investment of so many of you in this room to get involved,” she said. “In the end the only people who actually care about the health of Dulles and our area, our region, and our economy are you folks here and those you are connected to in your community.” n

Maintaining The Balance


he confab of government and industry leaders concerned about the future of Dulles Airport this week put the spotlight on serious concerns that could significantly alter the impact this economic engine has on Loudoun and the region. A key part of the discussion was the recognition that changing federal rules allowing longer flights to originate at Reagan National—more so than even the recession—have eroded the growth in passenger traffic at Dulles. What started as a push by a few senators to get a more convenient flight home on weekends has evolved to a dismantling of the perimeter rule that ensured that long-haul traffic, along with international flights, would originate at Dulles. While inconvenient for some, the policy underpinned a formula that balanced operations at the two airports, ensuring the future health of both. That diversion of passenger traffic from Dulles to National comes after the airports authority invested more than $3 billion to boost Dulles’ passenger capacity to 40 million—on the way to its ultimate planned capacity of 55 million. The decrease in passenger counts has the additional consequence of increasing the per-passenger fees charged to offset the construction costs, with the result of making the airport more expensive for airlines and travelers—both parties that keep competitive eyes on their bottom lines. It is the airports authority’s search for alternate revenue streams that could have the largest negative impact on Loudoun’s economy. As airport leaders consider plans for additional commercial development on its 12,000-acre campus—whether a new hotel, additional warehouses or even office space—it is important to note that such projects would be competing with private landowners. While Loudoun would still derive some tax benefit from airport-based development, those uses could delay build-out on long-planned commercial and industrial properties around the Dulles border. And that delay could increase pressure to convert the undeveloped tract to residential use, further eroding the county’s future anticipated tax base. Dulles is a powerful and important economic engine for Loudoun and the region, but it will require a careful balance to ensure its impact reaches its full positive potential.

Dear Editor:

he loss of a young man’s life in Purcellville this week will result in the objective inquiry necessary to assess what transpired that day. My heart is with the parents who have lost a child and with law enforcement officers who daily put their lives on the line. Once our senior officials thoroughly review the matter, I trust them to implement the necessary measures to prevent this from happening again. But I have to ask, during the past several years when local towns’ or the Loudoun County budgets were under consideration, were sheriff’s/ police agencies’ funding for alternative enforcement equipment denied or restricted to only allow for a few Taser-type equipment users? I recall many county parents and teachers claiming a $38 million school budget

increase was insufficient. Before that I recall local residents advocating the importance of funding a dog park when perhaps critical funds were not allocated to those who protect and service us? These remain my unanswered questions. The lessons to be learned in Purcellville remain for now but I hope that before we add nice-to-have tablets for middle schools, or another dog park, that we ensure our police agencies have the necessary tools for a potential non-lethal response, if lacking—but also acknowledge when a person is armed with a weapon, the outcome for the aggressor may be serious injury or loss of life. I remain grateful to each law enforcement officer who puts his or her life on the line each day for us. Rebecca Reeder, Leesburg

Dear Editor: I am writing this to draw attention to the issue of Medicaid expansion in Virginia, which has been stalled by the House Republicans in Richmond. Expanding Medicaid is a smart decision for Virginia for the following facts: 1. It will bring around $ 1.9 billion annually ($5 million a day) to Virginia and create 30,000 new jobs. 2. Federal government pays for the expansion 100 percent through 2016, decreasing incrementally to 90 percent in 2020 and thereafter. 3. Virginia now pays around $104 million a year on indigent care (primarily to VCU Health and UVA Health) that could be saved if Medicaid is expanded. 4. All Virginia insurance enrollees pay a “hidden tax” to cover for uncompensated care. By expanding Medicaid and covering 400,000 more Virginians, this “hidden tax” would shrink by an estimated $17 million to $24 million per

will be raising another hue and cry about the shootings in California. All sorts of claims will be made about better gun control. In reality, California is one of the hardest states in which to buy a gun. And the three people who were stabbed during last week’s incident would have hardly been helped by even stricter gun laws. In reality, this guy’s cries for help were ignored and that’s the saddest part of this story. If you want to ban guns you better plan on banning knives, baseball bats and rocks larger than gravel. Better yet let’s try and get people help when they need it. John Voigt, Ashburn


year. 5. Medicaid expansion would bring preventive care access to the uninsured Virginians, which would in turn reduce costly emergency room visits. 6. Federal Disproportionate Share Hospital Reimbursements (DSH) are slated to be reduced by the new ACA Law and Virginia could end up paying if Medicaid is not expanded. In 2010 DHS allocated $172 million to Virginia for DSH. Virginia hospitals have said they need the federal dollars from Medicaid expansion to keep treating uninsured poor patients throughout Virginia. Given all the facts stated above it baffles me why House Republicans in Richmond would not expand Medicaid. The argument that the federal government may not pay its share past 2020 does not cut ice as Virginia today supports several programs with federal dollars and it can exit the expansion if the feds do not keep their end of the bargain. We need our federal tax dollars to come back to Virginia so that 400,000 fellow Virginians are not left behind. Republicans should put partisan politics aside and work with the state Senate to negotiate an agreement. Several Republican-controlled states have signed up for the expansion, with their own flavor of implementing it, the latest being Indiana. Pennsylvania and Utah might soon be following suit. I am at a loss to understand why Richmond Republicans cannot follow their own colleagues in doing what is financially smart and morally right. It will cost Virginia more by not expanding as opposed to expanding Medicaid and bringing more revenue and much needed jobs. We should not leave any Virginian behind, particularly the poor, and that is a value Jesus wanted all of us to follow. Per Proverb 14:31, whoever is kind to the needy honors God.

manager, committing about $50,000 per year to the post. “That was the best investment we’ve made,” Clemens said. As the historic records manager, Fishback augmented the county investment by securing state grants to preserve the documents. The office has digitized many of the records, reducing the need to handle the fragile papers and making them available on the Library of Virginia website through Virginia’s Circuit Court Records Preservation Program. All Loudoun’s chancery records from 1758-1912 are now available at The inventory includes court orders, deeds, wills, marriage licenses, divorce cases, court minutes, land records, chancery suits, and some birth and death records. It also contains 10,000 slave records, including the Register of Free Negroes, lawsuits suing for freedom, an original emancipation document, bills of sale and deeds of importation. The collection also contains a deed of trust signed by George Washington as a trustee, and the original plat for the Town of Leesburg. The countless hours spent indexing and conserving the records to make them available to the public is Fishback’s legacy. “You can’t easily replace the heart he put into preserving and protecting [the records],” Clemens said. But Fishback’s departure ushers in the next generation of caretakers, with new goals and objectives—possibly including a museum-type, research setting for the records if the Clerk of the Court’s office decides to transfer custody of the records. A possible future partnership could be with the Thomas Balch Library, which already possesses considerable genealogical materials. The other likely option would be to transfer the records to the Library of Virginia, Clemens said. As Fishback conducted a tour of his empire in the basement of the Loudoun Court House recently, he detailed the steady transfer of records first to microfilm, then to digital format. He also laughs as he considered the nature

of lawsuits long ago. “They’re far worse than us, they all held paper on one another; they were very litigious,” he said. The conservation process is delicate. Fishback has a rudimentary laboratory in which cracks in fragile papers can be mended, using Japanese mulberry paper, after having been placed in a humidity chamber for 10 hours to get them supple enough to flatten and repair. The conservation work he finds fascinating, and he wishes he could do more. “I do the bare basics—I don’t have the equipment or the experience to do more,” he said. Every little bit of available resources goes into a conservation fund—including a portion of the photocopying fee charged in the courthouse file room. “It’s expensive —$1,200 per book and up,” Fishback said. He also got grants for indexing, scanning and flat filing old chancery records. Still more indexing, flat filing and better organizing of the records is needed, however. “We got about half done,” he said. Fishback approached retirement ruefully. “I wish I hadn’t gotten old,” the almost 63-yearold said. But he has faith his successor will have more technological and conservation experience, bringing new skills to the care of the collection. What does the future hold for Fishback? “I have no idea at this point,” he said. Maybe start a few projects, maybe come back part-time, he hinted. “I’ve loved my job—it’s the best job in the county bar none, but after 35 years I’m ready to do a different schedule, not every day.” n

How The Archives Were Saved


hat Loudoun County is among as few as five jurisdictions to retain their full collection of court records, back to the county’s founding in 1757, can be credited to the swift action of a handful of men. As Union troops threatened to take Leesburg at the onset of the Civil War, it was a order of the Loudoun Circuit Court judges on May 14, 1861, authorizing Clerk of the Court George K. Fox Jr. to take the records to safety that led to today’s collection being so intact. And it was a good thing, as Union troops moved into town and occupied all the public buildings. According to Loudoun Historical Records Manager John Fishback, Fox was only instructed to take 20 years’ worth of records—1842-1862—for safekeeping, “but he took everything.” Having been told to use his discretion as to a safe location, Fox loaded all the records into a large wagon and headed south, reportedly to Campbell County. Over the next four years, Fox moved the records four times to different locations as each refuge was threatened in turn. After the war in 1865, all the records were returned in good condition to Loudoun—an outcome that was rare as many counties in Virginia suffered either complete loss or severe damage to their records from the invading Union troops. Because of Fox’s actions and the judges’ order, Loudoun possesses a complete set of Deed, Will and Order Books from its formation in 1757, including all the Revolutionary War records. The Minute Books from 1820, the year in which the Assembly of Virginia discontinued the Order Books. Only early surveyors’ books are missing.
