crowd of dignitaries and well-wishers gathered on the bank of the Potomac River across from Mason Island Monday morning to celebrate the opening of Loudoun County’s newest park. Owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, the 295-acre White’s Ford Regional Park near Lucketts opened Monday with a first phase that includes a launch point for canoeists and kayakers, hiking trails, habitat for great blue herons and bald eagles and an expansive scenic view. The property once belonged to Confederate leader Col. Elijah V. White, whose home still stands on a bluff overlooking the river. The structure has been stabilized for now, but future plans could include some sort of visitor or interpretive center. Fittingly, an honor guard comprised of 8th Virginia and 17th Mississippi re-enactors

tion already is underway. The deadline for applications is June 27. The goal is to have the new team in place by September, Dentler said. Wells, who temporarily will take on the added responsibilities of interim finance director after Butts leaves, said many local governments use this type of organizational structure. The most important thing, he said, is that residents know that town staff is prepared. “We have contingency plans in place so people shouldn’t worry that town operations are going to suffer by this.” This fall, when Dentler steps in as town manager, one of his first tasks will be to appoint a deputy town manager and he said he would be looking for a candidate with a strong financial background who will “strengthen our organization in that regard.” Continued on Page 21

espite continued pleas from area residents, Loudoun Water reiterated last week that concerns over safety and liability trump public access to the Beaverdam Reservoir. But the authority’s leadership promised to work with county staff on a plan to re-open the facility and engage the public during the multi-year renovation. The Ashburn-area reservoir is a popular recreation spot, with fishermen, kayakers, hikers and rowing teams often present, but it will be closed for the next several years as Loudoun Water undertakes a $15 million overhaul. Loudoun Water purchased the 600-acre Beaverdam Creek Reservoir and surrounding land along with the Goose Creek Reservoir, Goose Creek Water Treatment Plant and the water transmission pipeline along the W&OD Trail to the Fairfax County line in January as a part of a $30 million deal with the City of Fairfax. Coming before the Board of Supervisors last Wednesday, Loudoun Water General Manager Fred Jennings said when the authority was in the process of purchasing the reservoir and other facilities, it was not focused on the public use aspect, but instead on the extensive work that needed to be done. Among the needs are upgrading the dam to meet new requirements, improving the spillway and reinstalling the channel way. Work also needs to be done to protect the quality of the water. “This is a considerable project for us,” Jennings said, noting the reservoir holds 1.5 billion gallons of water. “We committed to getting that right and having an engineer help us with our strategy. It is crucial to us.” Jennings also made clear that safety concerns associated with public access are paramount, saying that as recently as two weeks ago teenagers were jumping off the control tower used to drain and fill the reservoir. In addition, Jennings pointed out there have been five drownings on the reservoir, as well as extensive underage drinking at “party central” and gang activity. People have put in their own ramps, zip lines and other recreational items on the property, Jennings said. Loudoun County Sheriff ’s Office deputies routinely patrol the area resulting in multiple self-reported calls, according to the agency. “When it was purchased, I thought we would be able to keep open the public access,” Jennings said. “However, one of the due diligence items we found is that the City

Debate Continues Over Access Restrictions At Beaverdam Reservoir

Noise debate hits snag

Bu s in e s s

agrant@leesburgtoday.com ver the past decade, Leesburg Town Manager John Wells and Finance Director Norm Butts have worked to put the town on firm financial footing, with strong reserves and a long-term budgeting approach—efforts that have raised the possibility of the town achieving its first triple-A bond rating. As town representatives meet with New York rating agencies this week, Town Hall is preparing for a significant restructuring in preparation for Well’s retirement in October and to address last week’s announcement that Butts will be leaving next month to become Richmond’s deputy chief administrative officer for finance and administration.

The transition has turned the focus to Kaj Dentler, the former parks and recreation director and deputy town manager since 2007, tapped by the Town Council to replace Wells this fall. Dentler said a post-Wells staff restructuring had been in the works, but will be accelerated with Butts’ departure. The plan involves the merging of the town’s Finance, Human Resources, and Information Technology departments. The new Department of Finance and Administrative Services will be led by a chief financial officer, with directors leading each branch. “Change is constant and we have to be ready and we often have plans for things that we would like to do if opportunities come about in order to be prepared,” Dentler said.

“rock solid line” to prove a defendant’s guilt. But in Williams’ case, she said, there are many gaps in that line. Hendrix laid out five areas that she said created gaps in the commonwealth’s case: the lack of scientific evidence, including DNA or fingerprints from Williams in Johnson’s car; the lack of physical evidence; that Williams did not have any contact with Johnson on the day of his death unlike many other people; that eyewitness accounts do not match the commonwealth’s evidence; and the credibility of many of the commonwealth’s witnesses. The victim himself was on probation for a 2009 distribution of marijuana charge when he was killed. “You will be hearing from more than 30 witnesses,” Hendrix told the jury, “many of them are convicted felons, many are on the run, and many are hostile and don’t want to testify at all.” Amato acknowledged that many of the witnesses have criminal records or are facing future prison time for unrelated crimes. She said that one of the witnesses met Williams while incarcerated and would provide testimony about conversations the two men had. “We’re going to ask you to listen to the testimony carefully,” she said. “These are details no one would know unless they were the killer or the detective investigating the crime.” Prosecutors also used Williams’ own alleged words against him, both in opening statements and when calling lead investigator Det. Colette Cunningham. When Cunningham first arrested Williams in February 2013, she testified she told him that “his biggest mistake was committing a murder in Loudoun County… where we have all the time in the world to investigate.” His response, according to Cunningham, was, “we’ll see.” When Cunningham continued that Williams’ second mistake was committing the crime in broad daylight next to a park where children were playing, he allegedly replied, “Don’t be so cocky,” according to Cunningham’s testimony. On cross examination, defense attorney Eric Demetriades hammered Cunningham on his investigation, including whether she prompted responses from witnesses—including Hardwick—preservation of evidence, and whether there was information from witnesses and interviews missing from police reports. Many of the details she was asked about Cunningham said she could not recall “off the top of my head,” noting she worked 160 hours in the eight days after Johnson’s death and interviewed almost 30 people. The trial is scheduled to continue through next week. Check back to www.leesburgtoday. com for continuing coverage. n

six women. Ryan Blaine Williams, 33, is charged with first-degree murder and use of a firearm during commission of a felony for the death of Jovaughn Johnson, 30, who was found dead from a gunshot wound in his vehicle parked on the street in the area of Great Trail Terrace and Trail Run Terrace Dec. 27, 2012. It was the only homicide in Loudoun County during 2012. The case has taken a convoluted path to reach trial. In February 2013, Williams and his former girlfriend Linsey Hardwick were charged with first-degree murder for Johnson’s death. But following a May 2013 preliminary hearing, a General District Court judge dismissed the charges against Williams. Then in August, a grand jury indicted Williams on the first-degree murder charge re-filed by the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. In September, Hardwick’s first-degree murder charge was dropped and she pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact and to a narcotics charge from an unrelated incident. She will be sentenced June 27—after she testifies in Williams’ trial. To open the case, Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Alejandra R. Amato told jurors about the details of Johnson’s death and what the witnesses would testify to during the week-long trial. According to prosecutors, Williams killed Johnson for “snitching.” He learned where Johnson would be on Dec. 27, 2012, had Hardwick drive him there that afternoon, got into the front passenger side of Johnson’s Mercedes Benz SUV and shot him. Amato said Johnson died “holding his hands up to his head while the bullets of a 9mm Glock poured into him.” Williams then, according to prosecutors, jumped back in Hardwick’s car and the two drove to Delaware, where they disposed of the gun—which has never been found—and his clothing. Then the couple drove to Colonial Beach, to the home of one of Williams’ friends. Amato said that friend would testify that Williams confessed to killing Johnson. “He killed him in cold blood. He shot him in the head, hand and shoulder,” Amato said, adding that “Jovaughn has been silenced forever, but he will still be heard.” But defense attorney Lindsay Hendrix countered in her opening argument that there was no evidence tying Williams to the crime. “There are many, many, many people who could have possibly done this,” she said, “and out of them, the one that did not is Ryan Williams.” Amato acknowledged to the jury that evidence in the case against Williams is circumstantial, but noted “you don’t need a smoking gun in order to convict Mr. Williams.” Amato said multiple witnesses would relate what Williams told them about the crime and information that Williams’ and Hardwick’s cell phones “pinged” off cell phone towers closest to the crime scene around when Johnson was killed. While there is not direct evidence linking Williams to the crime, Hendrix argued that there is direct evidence “that it is not Ryan Williams,” and said that investigators ignored evidence that “didn’t match their theory of the crime.” Writing “presumed innocent” and “guilty” on a white board in the courtroom, Hendrix said that usually prosecutors are able to draw a

DOMESTIC SHOOTING LEAVES MAN DEAD

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a domestic-related shooting that left one person dead Saturday afternoon in Leesburg’s Potomac Station neighborhood. Deputies responded to a home on Shadow Terrace around 2:45 p.m. In the home, two adult relatives were involved in a fight that ended in gunfire. A 21-year-old Leesburg man was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he died from his injuries. The incident was contained to the home and everyone involved has been identified. There was no threat to the community.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has released a composite sketch of the suspect in two Sterling street robberies—including one in which the female victim was sexually assaulted. The suspect is described as a male, 5-foot8-inches to 5-foot-10-inches tall, and was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses. The suspect had the hood pulled up over his head to conceal his face. Deputies were called to Reston Hospital around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 31, where a woman was being treated for an CHILD HIT BY CAR assault that happened IN SOUTH RIDING around 5 a.m. on The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is Stanford Square near investigating a pedestrian accident Sunday in Dulles Town Center.

The Stanford Square attack is similar to four prior cases in eastern Loudoun—including two on Stanford Square—in which an armed assailant ordered women to remove clothing. However, the sheriff’s office has not connected this week’s suspect to those cases, and the suspect sketches are different. Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Det. W. Promisel 703-777-0475. Caller wishing to remain anonymous may call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.

TWO ARRESTED AFTER HIT AND RUN

Two men are in jail following an altercation early Friday morning during which witnesses said a victim was intentionally hit by a car in the Cascades Marketplace parking lot. According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office report, deputies were called to the shopping center just before 2 a.m. A 41-year-old North Carolina man was reportedly attempting to break up a fight and was assaulted, losing his shoes and other clothing in the process. As he went to retrieve the items, a vehicle circled the parking lot and—according to witness statements—intentionally struck him before driving away. Deputies found the vehicle and arrested the driver and a passenger. The driver, Freddy L. Prem, 24, of Sterling, was charged with malicious wounding, felony hit and run and drunk in public. The passenger, Javier Benitez, 22, of Leesburg, was charged with malicious wounding and failure to render aid. Benitez subsequently also was charged with DUI. Both men were held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. The victim was treated and released at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

PHONE SCAMMERS TARGET MORE LOUDOUN VICTIMS

Despite repeated cautionary public warnings, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office today is reporting two incidents in which phone scammers pulled off frauds against local victims. The first case happened May 31 when a business in Community Plaza in Sterling was called by a person claiming to be a Virginia Power debt collector. The caller stated the business was behind on its payments and instructed the victim to obtain a Green Dot MoneyPak card to pay the bill before the power was shut off. After the victim provided information from a purchased card, a second call was received from a purported debt collector who said the funds could not be processed and requested another card. The victim again followed the instructions, but after speaking with another business owner later learned it was a scam. Then, Thursday, June 5, a resident on Creamer Lane near Hillsboro received a call from a person claiming to be from the IRS Fraud Unit. The caller stated fines were owed and advised the victim to purchase Reloadit cards at an area grocery store. The victim followed the directions and provided the information to the caller. Then the caller demanded money. The victim later realized the call was a scam.

Sterling man has been charged for grabbing several women during the past month, including two assaults in bathrooms at Dulles Town Center. Meredith S. Wyatt, 23, has been charged with five counts of simple assault, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office announced last week. Wyatt first was identified June 2, after he was connected with an assault that occurred at a South Sterling Boulevard grocery store. In that case, a 27-year-old woman was approached by a man and the two began talking. When the woman walked away, the man touched her inappropriately from behind. The woman verbally confronted the suspect before walking away again. The man then grabbed her from behind again. Wyatt was identified as the perpetrator in that incident and taken into custody on two

counts of simple assault. After his arrest, Loudoun detectives connected Wyatt to two other incidents at the Dulles Town Center. The first was reported May 14 when a 62-year-old woman was inside a women’s bathroom at the mall and a man grabbed her from an adjacent stall. The man then fled the bathroom. A second incident was reported at 11:30 a.m. May 30, when a 16-year-old girl was in a stall inside a women’s bathroom in the mall and a man reached underneath the stall and grabbed her. The man left after the teenager screamed. Wyatt also was charged in connection with a May 25 assault case in which a 57-yearold female was walking in the 200 block of West Holly Avenue around 4 p.m. when she was grabbed from behind. Wyatt was held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. n

ighth-graders from Seneca Ridge Middle School in Sterling are well versed on their civic responsibilities. Since February they’ve been involved in the Student Citizenship Project, a pilot program initiated through Morven Park’s Civics Now! initiative that encourages civil leadership and responsibility through community projects. “The goal is to teach them to be active participants in their community…and to bring that learning from the civics classroom into a real world application,” Director Abby Pfisterer said. The program kicked off in October when project organizers visited Tanya Larriva’s eighth grade civics classes at Seneca Ridge to educate the students on the history of Morven Park and to prep them for the task ahead. Larriva, who has taught the subject for the past 17 years, said she jumped at the chance to get Leesburg Today/April Grant involved. Eighth-graders from Seneca Ridge Middle School in Sterling last “To bring students out to the Wednesday admired the vegetable gardens they produced as part community and get involved with of Morven Park’s Student Citizenship Project. showing how they actually could plan and give back, it was an awesome opportunity,” she said.

he Town Council’s efforts to revamp Leesburg’s noise ordinance took another detour Monday night, with the issue being sent back to the staff for more work. This time, staff members will develop a formal questionnaire in hopes of identifying common ground among council members. Assistant Town Manager Scott Parker in March presented a staff report highlighting a proposal to adopt a decibel-based noise ordinance to replace the current regulations that prohibit “plainly audible” noises that disturb the peace. The amendment, he said, is aimed at satisfying both the needs of the residents and downtown businesses, including those that offer live outdoor music. The council has held several work sessions to discuss the proposal and the town staff conducted a public demonstration of sound levels and how they would be measured, but no consensus has been reached. During Monday night’s work session, council members Marty Martinez, Kevin Wright, and Katie Hammler favored holding a public input session to get more community involvement. “You can’t legislate this. It’s an issue of neighbors working together,” Hammler said. Vice Mayor Dave Butler, who was an early advocate of the decibel system, said the current ordinance is not workable and presents a huge problem for businesses. “They’re all scared to death half the time because under this ordinance they’re violating the law every single time they play music,” he said. Councilman Tom Dunn agreed that the ordinance needs some “cleaning up,” but said he wasn’t yet sure how to go about that. “I’m not eager to leave the current ordinance because right now it seems to be working very well,” Mayor Kristen Umstattd said. Based on council’s comments Monday night, Town Manager John Wells said the staff did not have enough information about how to proceed. To narrow the focus of the talks, staff members will prepare a list of questions for council members prior to the next work session. The questions will be added to the town’s website and the public can post comments. The topic will be taken up again later. Continued on Next Page

• According to Virginia Living magazine’s annual Best of Virginia reader’s poll, Leesburg is the second friendliest town in Virginia. Warrenton, just 30 miles to the south, was ranked first on the list. “We are very honored, but not surprised, to receive this great recognition from Virginia Living’s readers,” Mayor Kristen Umstattd said in a statement. “Our residents and businesses are some of the nicest people you’ll find anywhere in the country and we are very proud of them. Leesburg is a fun place to visit. Please come visit and find out why.” Along with the rating, several Leesburg businesses were named among the best of Virginia. They are: Best Burger Joint, Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers; Best Fine Jewelry Store, Ketterman’s Jewelers and Best Law Firm, DunlapWeaver, PLLC. Cobb Village 12 Cinemas, LA Fitness, CycleLuv, Mom’s Apple Pie, MacDowell Brew Kitchen, Leesburg Vintner, ProJet Aviation, J&L Interiors, Graham Law Firm and Old Mill Kennel also received second and third place mentions. Virginia Living is a bimonthly lifestyle magazine. • The town’s 24th annual Independence Day Celebration is scheduled for Friday, July 4. The festivities will begin at 10 a.m. from the front field of Ida Lee Park, and travel south on King Street through the historic downtown, and finish at Fairfax Street. Civic groups, youth organizations, community groups, families and others are encouraged to participate in the parade. No fee is required for entry. Entries can include floats, motorized or non-motorized vehicles, and walking groups. Preregistration is encouraged, but is not mandatory. The Patriot’s Cup, sponsored by Leesburg Today, will be awarded to the parade entry that best represents the spirit of American independence. The winner’s name will be engraved on the cup on display at the Leesburg Town Hall. All participants must be at the front field of Ida Lee Park by 9:30 a.m. when the downtown streets will be closing. For more information or to get an application, contact Ida Lee Park Recreation Center at 703-777-1368 or go to www.idalee.org. • Last weekend, the cadets of the NJROTC of Loudoun County High School volunteered to help restore the Loudoun Museum’s Colonial Children’s Garden. Nine students—Cadets Dalton Summers, Colin Daniel, Troy Breeden, Alex Tucker, Jake Blycher, Jake Haberman, Kirk Kalian and Aaron Barclay—spent four hours working with Museum Board of Trustees member Peter Kelpinksi cleaning, weeding, trimming and mulching the garden. The Children’s Garden, created in 2006, was designed to showcase plants that American colonists used in their homes and kitchens and to teach children how essential gardens were to families of that era. “The commitment from these young men means so much to us,” museum director and curator Alana Blumenthal said. To learn more about the history of the Children’s Garden or how to volunteer, go to the Loudoun Museum website at www.

Despite a request from Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation Executive Director Frank Milligan for an indefinite deferral of the proposal to incorporate the 1,000-acre Morven Park property through a boundary line adjustment, a majority of Town Council members Tuesday night voted to end work on the project. The effort formally began in May 2013 when the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted to support the boundary line adjustment, although the foundation had been in informal talks with both the town and the county. Foundation leaders said with the property under town jurisdiction they could better provide programs, special events and recreational facilities intended to make Morven Park a national tourism destination and benefit the town economically. But, Monday Milligan stated that he has been working with the Loudoun County staff to find out what uses would be permitted under its current zoning. “We’ve had some conversation with the town and the county and until we decide which avenue is best for us we don’t want the town to be wasting any of the staff’s time in analyzing our project until we are certain,” he said. The council has been divided on the BLA request. Last month, Vice Mayor Dave Butler and Councilwoman Kelly Burk voted in favor of Councilman Tom Dunn’s motion to stop all further work. The criticism continued during Monday night’s work session as Councilman Marty Martinez, who had voted against Dunn’s motion, said he now agreed with that position. “I’m now at the point where I think we’ve done everything to help them out,” he said. Only council members Kevin Wright and Katie Hammler support continuing with the review process. Wright said he wanted to proceed with a public hearing and that it would be premature to stop in the middle of the process. “If we’re getting ready to stop I’d at least like to take steps to a public hearing,” he said. Hammler agreed, stating that the issue is complex and that the foundation’s board of trustees should be allowed time to work with the town and county to find a resolution. “I’ve been opposed to this from the start and we had an opportunity to stick a fork in this because the situation we have is the same,” Dunn said, claiming the project has been a waste of the town’s time, staff and resources.

Finnegan’s Sports Bar and Grill will host the after party. The restaurant will open its doors at 10:30 a.m. and 15 percent of its proceeds will go to Team Mathias. Emily Kelly and Linda Long, friends of the Giordano family, are spearheading the event.

50 Years Of Historic Preservation Celebrated

magine what Leesburg would look like if there was no Old and Historic District,” Board of Architectural Review Chairman Edward J. Kiley said to guests during a special forum Friday to celebrate the district’s 50th anniversary. Members of the BAR along with residents and town representatives gathered at the Mason Enterprise Center to reflect on the town’s fivedecade effort to preserve the architectural character of the downtown area. Kiley welcomed guests and recognized the foresight of the founding BAR members who “50 years ago had a vision to keep what was good” about the town. The action was groundbreaking, with the district’s creation coming three years before the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act. In June 1963, the efforts of a group of community leaders spearheaded by the late B. Powell Harrison and Stanley Caulkins, who was serving on the Town Council at the time, culminated in the adoption of rules giving the town new oversight over building improvements, construction and signage in the core downtown area. During Friday’s festivities, Caulkins was honored for his years of commitment to the town. Planning Director Susan Berry Hill, who described the district as the pride of the town, presented Caulkins with a gift followed by a standing ovation from the crowd. Caulkins, who with his brother Roger owns and operates Caulkins Jewelers on South

King Street, said that with the mix of commercial businesses in the downtown area he is happy to see that it is coming out of a slump. “It’s a known destination to people in the county and the hope is that Leesburg is viewed as the gateway of Loudoun County and the Northern Virginia area.” Kiley also recognized W. Brown Morton III, Leesburg resident and co-author of “The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Preservation Projects,” whose work “we often use as a guideline,” he said. The town’s new preservation planner, Tom Scofield, ran down key facts about the district’s first year, including that 15 applications were reviewed during that year. “I am impressed with this community in a lot of ways but the way it has preserved its history is the biggest one,” he said. A featured part of the program was a panel discussion by past and present BAR members, including Tracy Coffing, Teresa Minchew, Leesburg Economic Development Commission Chairman Jim Sisley, and Councilman Kevin Wright. Panel moderator Heidi Siebentritt, historic preservation planner for Loudoun County, thanked the group for their work calling it a “thankless and difficult” job, then presented questions to each. Asked what was their most controversial case, all panelists said it was the 2007 decision to renovate the Loudoun Street fire station to permit a three-story, 15,697-square-foot firehouse facing Loudoun Street with an additional 28,377 square feet of office space, a decision that was appealed by residents. n

Board Approves Expansion Of Blue Mount Nursery

A

fter several rounds of public review, the Board of Supervisors last week very quietly approved a request to continue and expand operations of the Blue Mount Nursery along Rt. 7 in Ashburn for the next two decades. Much of the debate during committee review—and concerns raised by county planners— centered on whether the use was appropriate on land planned for commercial development. The Blue Mount Nursery was first ap-

proved as a special exception use in 1992 on property zoned residential, but which has since been designated for keynote employment development in the county’s Comprehensive Plan. At that time, the nursery was expected to be an “interim” use until the market for commercial development emerged in the corridor.

Ultimately, to support the new request, supervisors agreed that given the status of the commercial market, the nursery could remain an “interim” use for the next 20 years. The original special exception approval lapses in October 2017, and the owner is seeking permission to extend the special exception by 20 years, a request supported by the Planning Commission. In addition, the application seeks to expand the existing sales area, add a 5,000-square-foot farm market building, allow up to four special events and the sale of propane and firewood. A similar application for expansion was submitted by Blue Mount in 2005, but subsequently withdrawn. Among the requirements for Blue Mount are to connect public drinking fountains and sinks to the public central water supply within six months of public utilities being extended to the site and to submit a site plan within 180 days for the commercial nursery. In addition, the Leesburg Today File Photo nursery will be allowed to open to contracted landscapers at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, and to the public at 8 a.m. When Riverside Parkway connects from Lexington Drive to Loudoun County Parkway north of the nursery, the commercial nursery will be allowed to open to landscapers at 7 a.m. seven days a week.

Supervisors Make Dog Parks Priority In discussion of its strategic plan—and looking ahead to the final year of its term—the Board of Supervisors last week directed county staff members to make allowances for dog parks in planned communities. Since 2011, plans have been in place to expand the zoning districts in which dog parks may be established to include the areas where major suburban homeowners’ associations are located. But as the strategic plan stands, the board will not take action on the changes until next spring, and supervisors were not happy about that. “The only reason we took it out of the plan was because of all the other stuff we were putting on staff, not because we didn’t want it to happen,” Supervisor Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) said. “It’s low hanging fruit. It’s non-controversial.” Currently, the only place dog parks are allowed is in areas zoned for transit-related centers—something supervisors have said does not make sense. Without the allowances, communities like South Riding and Lansdowne cannot establish dog parks for their residents, as they would like. Buona requested, and other supervisors agreed, to move the dog park item up on the priority list. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) said he would personally work to ensure it makes it way through the process. Another priority item will be getting its public review beginning this summer. The county has been examining ways to increase the permissions for breweries in western Loudoun’s agricultural districts. The board

is expected to formally adopt its intent to amend the Zoning Ordinance at its July 16 meeting, with a Planning Commission public hearing in September. The item is expected to come back to the Board of Supervisors for final action by November.

Historic Preservation Efforts Recognized The Loudoun County Historic District Review Committee has been selected as a recipient of a Commission Excellence Award by the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions. The NAPC Commission Excellence Awards honors achievements of local preservation, historic district, and landmark commissions, and boards of architectural review. The Loudoun County Historic District Review Committee was honored in the category of “Best Practices: Public Outreach” for its involvement in many preservation projects in Loudoun through the Joint Architectural Review Boards Awards Program. By partnering with the Loudoun Preservation Society for the awards ceremony, the county helped solidify the relationship between the local government, private preservation organizations and residents. In 2008, the Loudoun County Historic District Review Committee collaborated with its counterparts in Leesburg, Middleburg and Purcellville to create the Joint Architectural Review Board and an annual awards program, which has expanded to include the Community Blue Ribbon Award, honoring a project nominated by the general public. Loudoun’s award will be presented as part of a ceremony at NAPC’s biennial FORUM conference in Philadelphia July 19. More information about the NAPC is online at http://napc.uga.edu. More information about the Joint Architectural Review Board and its award program is available online at www.loudoun.gov/jarb or by contacting Lauren Murphy of the Loudoun County Planning Department at 703-777-0246.

to new regulations. For example, if an owner operates a B&B but wants to start hosting parties in another existing building, the second building must meet the new building and fire requirements, but the existing B&B—if operating legally—will not have to be retrofitted. In addition, staff members made clear that whatever version of the code existed when the B&B or event facility was first approved would continue to apply. Also, only event tents larger than 900 square feet require permits—with a $90 fee— from the Fire Marshal’s Office. The conversation between B&B owners and representatives from the county Department of Building and Development, Health Department, and Loudoun County Fire-Rescue helped break down the complicated nature of the new zoning regulations, including a last-minute amendment concerning compliance with building and fire codes. Part of the confusion arose because agricultural buildings generally are exempt from the fire and building codes. However, county staff members pointed out the use of the building is

epresentatives of several county agencies came together last week to give owners of Loudoun’s bed and breakfast inns and event facilities a clearer understanding of regulations adopted by the Board of Supervisors in May. The Zoning Ordinance changes were intended to help owners of these rural operations, but concerns were raised after the vote that they might actually hinder business instead. During the June 5 forum there was one underlying message: owners who are legally operating and do not want to increase their capacity for overnight stays or events will not have to make any changes. It is only those owners who wish to expand their business that will have to comply with the new regulations. But even then, county staff members stressed, it is only the new facility that will be subject

what is important. “They are to be used for what the farm intended it for,” Chris Thompson of Building and Development said. “If you abandoned that, and are using it primarily for weddings or something, that is no longer an ag use.” Changing or intensifying the use of a structure also means an older building must comply with existing requirements for accessibility for people with disabilities. “There are exceptions under historic buildings, but we don’t make that determination,” Thompson said. Fire Marshal Linda Hale said her office works with building inspectors to ensure that a structure is as safe as possible. The goal, she said, is fire prevention and ensuring guests’ safety when they are on the property. “Our goal is to keep you in business,” Hale said. “If you have a fire, you are not in business.” To that end, Hale said she would love to have operators contact her office to conduct a fire-safety assessment on their buildings. The fire marshal’s office also is responsible for annual inspections of properties. Among the things that would be looked at for a building being used for an increased or new use are smoke alarms and an alert system for guests and safe egress in the case of fire. “Some of what we also look at is the combustible content and the ability for [fire] to spread up and out,” Hale said. “In the days of our grandparents, they had actual materials… things burned slower; fire was slower to ignite and it didn’t burn as quickly.” Then, Hale told the audience, firefighters had about 20 minutes inside a fire before flashover would occur. “Nowadays with all synthetics, they burn faster, they burn hotter and you basically have about three minutes in room of origin from when fire alarm goes off [until flashover].” Hale also made suggestions to the B&B owners—things that are not required, but always good practice—including keeping a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, avoiding the use of candles, checking the quality of all power cords and ensuring that tables are not too close together during events so guests can easily make their way through. B&B owners also were encouraged to take advantage of the county’s new Business Assistance Team, or BAT, that was created to help people who were thinking of starting a business or expanding a business in Loudoun County to understand the requirements and how to get through the process. “We can pull together the people you need to talk to and have them at the meeting,” Barbara Zimmerman, the Business Assistance Team Leader, told the audience.

oodgrove High School junior Amanda Dukinfield accepted the Gabriella Miller Outstanding Youth Volunteer Award last Wednesday in front of a crowd packed into the Loudoun Board of Supervisors meeting room. It was the first time the award had been given since it was named in honor of the Leesburg-area youth who mounted a national campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancer before succumbing to the disease last year. Gabriella was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at age 9 and died Oct. 26, 2013. While confronting her diagnosis, she worked to help other children suffering from cancer by enhancing her own letterwriting campaign to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She raised more than $250,000 for the foundation, which inspired Macy’s to donate an additional $25,000. Her fundraising efforts resulted in 36 additional wishes being granted for children facing serious health issues. In the final months of her life, she also started a cancer advocacy organization called Smashing Walnuts Foundation.

joined the ribbon-cutting ceremony, firing a 21-gun salute. The White’s Ford property was acquired in 2010. NVRPA Chairman Brian Knapp said the process of developing the property had been very deliberative, resulting in the park authority’s commitment it made to area residents to establish a passive recreational use. The original development application ran into stiff opposition from neighbors, who objected to trailers with motorboat trailers traversing the narrow gravel roads. Ultimately, the park authority agreed to only allow canoes and kayaks from its boat launch. Opening up access to the river

and planting thousands of trees in the flatlands along the riverbank has produced a wonderful site, he said. “It has a great future,” Knapp said. Speaker Cate Magennis Wyatt, president of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground partnership, spoke of the history of the land. “History is human, not perfect, not superficial,” she said, marveling at the thousands of years of collected history that lay under attendees’ feet. That history includes some of Loudoun’s earliest inhabitants, Native American fishing folk, whose encampments the JTHG middle school students visit during summer camps. Wyatt said she was thrilled her students now would have better access to the river compared

with their treks through Ball’s Bluff Park. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) noted that for much of its history, Loudoun’s population did not rise much above 25,000 until Dulles Airport was built in the late 1950s. Noting growth is “hard to handle,” York said his goal is always to preserve the best of the county’s history, its environment and scenic assets. The chairman said he anticipated a continuing partnership with the park authority for Loudoun and all Northern Virginia residents. “We are about tourism; we are about history; and we are about preservation,” he said. There has been some controversy about the exact location of White’s Ford and the point where Civil War armies—most famously Gen.

Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia on its way to the bloody battle at Antietam in 1862—crossed the river. While the park authority says the land is the most likely crossing point, neighbors claim White’s ford was on their land. Supervisor Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin), a historian by avocation, alluded to the divergent opinions, noting from personal experience of reports referring to activities at his house near Waterford, that contemporary 19th century accounts sometimes turned out to be not true. The Confederate guerilla leader John S. Mosby’s men, for instance, were reported in a contemporary account to have been “caught at my house, with some ladies,” Higgins said.

added, “they were caught, but not at my house.” The reported 38,000 to 58,000 troops who crossed the river, for example, “did not cross in single file,” Higgins pointed out, noting they probably crossed “all along this area,” a conclusion Knapp later said was likely. Barbara Tulipane, CEO of the Ashburnbased National Recreation and Parks Association, said access to parks like White’s Ford will be important for children growing up in a world very different from their parents. “I’m very concerned about the next generation,” she

said. Like many in the audience, she said she grew up in open spaces. “It’s a different world today,” she said, noting that children spend little time outside and their lives are very structured. “It’s important we help them understand the need to protect space like this,” she said. The ceremony ended with a ribbon-cutting and a surprise award for former NVRPA executive George Tabb, who managed four Loudoun parks and historic sites. Tabb, who retired last year, received the Trail Champion Award for 2012 from the Potomac Heritage Trail Association for his work in providing river trails for visitors. n

An honor guard comprised of 8th Virginia and 17th Mississippi re-enactors joined the White’s Ford Regional Park ribbon-cutting ceremony, firing a 21-gun salute, on ground likely crossed by troops from both armies during the Civil War.

In the meantime, Dentler has no doubts that the town’s financial staff is capable and knowledgeable enough to move ahead in Butts’ and Wells’ absence. “We will continue to work closely with our auditors for internal control and we have veteran financial advisors who we work with on a regular basis so we have all of the pieces in play.” Despite the pending departures of Wells and Butts, Mayor Kristen Umstattd’s confidence in the financial management has not waned. She said there would not be any noticeable impact to the town. “I know we’ll end up with a great group of candidates… and I think Norm has left it in good shape,” she said. “John is transitioning everything very smoothly and Kaj knows what he’s doing so I think we’ll have a really good team in the end.” Some have questioned why Leesburg didn’t issue an official announcement of Butts’ resignation. Umstattd said staff members moving to a new position often prefer to advertise it through their new jurisdiction. “Richmond touted Norm coming on board; we respected Norm’s privacy and let him announce that where he wanted to announce it and when he wanted to announce it,” she said. Councilwoman Kelly Burk said the town would no doubt face a cultural change during the restructuring, but was confident the transition will go smoothly. “With every new person comes new ideas and new management,” she said. Burk said that during the process of interviewing internal candidates for the town manager’s post Dentler proved to be

prepared for the task. “John has had a succession plan in place and has been training Kaj for a while,” she said. “I think because of the training that Kaj has received under the tutelage of Mr. Wells he’s more than ready to take over.” Councilwoman Katie Hammler agreed that both Butts and Wells have worked to leave the town management in a strong position. The opening, she said, presents the opportunity to meet and recruit top experts from around the country who can bring a “fresh approach” to the town. But not every council member is convinced that the transition will go smoothly. Councilman Tom Dunn, who criticized Dentler’s appointment without conducting a nationwide candidate search for the position as “arrogant,” said he sees a bumpy road ahead. “Now to have really our top two financial directors from the town leaving…I’m very concerned at what our financial future is going to look like,” he said. “There’s concerns about whether we have enough experience on staff to manage the finances the way they have been managed.” Looking ahead, Dentler said the team would focus on the council’s goals, including maintaining long-term budget sustainability, enhancing customer service, improving organizational efficiency and enhancing technology and automation. “Pretty much everything we do from this point forward is all with those four components,” he said. There will always be critics, Dentler acknowleged. “I’m confident of us moving forward and I recognize the challenges…but we are an organization that is flexible and adaptable.” n

Booster Club Kicks In For Turf Field At Stone Bridge Danielle Nadler

Leesburg Today/Danielle Nadler

Stone Bridge soccer players practice on the high school’s heavily used grass field. The county Board of Supervisors might partner with the Stone Bridge boosters club to pay for an artificial turf field.

get something like this off the ground. “I think it’s fantastic that we may be moving in that direction,” Hornberger said. “I’m glad the Board of Supervisors is coming around to our idea, and I fully support it,” Kuesters said. For Stone Bridge girls soccer coach Joany Windows, artificial turf will mean a level playing field for her players and their opponents. The team didn’t get one outdoor practice before their first game of the season. After a cold and wet spring, they finally decided to spend almost $1,000 in booster club funds to rent Loudoun Soccer Park for practices and a try out. “Not having turf really has put us at a disadvantage,” she said. Stone Bridge opened in 2000, 10 years before Loudon County made artificial turf stan-

dard for all new high schools. Tuscarora and Woodgrove were the first Loudoun schools to receive the synthetic grass when they opened in 2010, followed by John Champe in 2012 and Rock Ridge, which opens in September. The county’s oldest high schools are next in line to get turf as their aging athletic facilities undergo renovations, three of which are paid for through the School Board’s and Board of Supervisors’ Capital Improvement Program: Loudoun Valley’s stadium upgrade is almost completed; construction at Loudoun County will begin this summer; and Broad Run will get turf by 2016. Then it’s Park View High School’s turn for turf. The Washington Redskins and the National Football League announced last month donations to pay $200,000 of the cost, with county funds covering the remaining $800,000. n

tone Bridge may be the next Loudoun high school to get an artificial turf field. The Board of Supervisors will vote June 18 on whether to meet the Stone Bridge Athletic Boosters Club part way to cover the $1 million cost to install synthetic grass in its stadium. Supervisor Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) announced his plans to bring the proposal to supervisors for a vote during last week’s Joint Board of Supervisors/School Board meeting. If approved as is, the county would provide $750,000 if the Stone Bridge school community kicks in $250,000. The announcement comes two years after the Board of Supervisors rejected an $8 million funding request from the School Board to pay for the installation of artificial turf fields at the eight high schools over a four-year period. At the time supervisors said it was too costly and would not fully address the countywide field shortage. But Buona said his hope is that the Board of Supervisors’ funding partnership with Stone Bridge—where the school community helps cover a portion of the cost—will be a model for the five high schools that are still without the synthetic grass. “I suspect it will pass the board because everyone I’ve talked to so far likes that model,” Buona said. “That model doesn’t work demographically everywhere, but it can in some schools like Stone Bridge.” Craig Ridley, president of the Stone Bridge boosters club, called the announcement “fantastic news,” but quickly added, “We’re cautiously optimistic because we’ve been at this for three years now.”

Ridley described fundraising efforts by Stone Bridge parents, students and athletic staff, with the goal of paying for artificial turf, as systematic. They sell personalized bricks to grace the stadium’s Bulldog Walk, hold annual mulch sales, peddle concessions at games, sell discount cards, and even raffled off a 2013 Volkswagen GTI. The club’s almost constant fundraising brings in about $160,000 a year. Ironically, when the weather or regular wear and tear of the grass field requires Stone Bridge teams to move home games to schools that have artificial turf it means the booster club can’t sell concessions. “We had to move more than a handful of games this year, and that’s a direct impact to our fundraising,” Ridley said. Under the plan, some of Stone Bridge’s portion of the turf cost will be financed through a line of credit. Ridley said when the booster club’s bank account previously reached to the hundreds of thousands, it didn’t look hopeful that any private group or the county Board of Supervisors would help them make up the difference to pay for an artificial turf field so they paid for other improvements to the Ashburn school’s athletic facilities, including the installation of a $40,000 video message score board. “We saw other needs come up, and as a nonprofit, you shouldn’t be sitting on that kind of cash anyway,” Ridley said Shortly after the School Board’s plan to have the county pay the full cost of eight turf fields was rejected, board members discussed ways to encourage athletic booster clubs to help pay for the fields with the school system providing part of the funding, but it never got legs. School Board Chairman Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) and member Kevin Kuesters (Broad Run), vocal proponents of the public-private partnership model, referred to their efforts to

say they are still open to that debate. The federal government has promised to pay for 100 percent of Medicaid expansion in the first three years and 90 percent every year thereafter, but most House Republicans have said they don’t trust that the federal government will keep up its end of the bargain. Minchew said he is willing to look at options to get the federal dollars promised through the Affordable Care Act, but in general he is against expanding the program in Virginia because, as is, “Medicaid is soaking up about 33 percent of our state budget. “Even without expansion, by 2020 Medicaid that we have is forecasted to grow to 40 percent of our budget…leaving just 60 cents of every dollar to pay for roads, schools, state police, state parks and everything else.” “The idea of getting back for Virginia those dollars that businesses are paying for Obamacare for Virginia is not a bad idea,” Minchew added, “but the devil’s in the details, and a special session to discuss that I’m in favor of.” Del. Tom Rust (R-87) has been touted as the only House Republican to support Medicaid expansion, but he joins the rest of his party in wanting to address the issue apart from the state budget. “We cannot hold up the funding for police and education, etc.,” he said. In preparation for a special session on the matter, Rust is working to drum up support for his own version of expanding health coverage to more Virginians. In an interview Tuesday, he would not go into details about his bill, but he said others, including Sen. Emmett Hanger (R-24) and most likely McAuliffe, are expected to present proposals of their own. “I think everybody is looking forward to debating legislation just on Medicaid,” he said. n

When the budget is shored up, the attention will likely turn to the debate over Medicaid expansion. House Republicans have said for the past year they want the issue to be addressed separately from the budget discussion, and they’ll most likely get their chance. The governor is expected to call a special session in the coming months. To that, Wexton, Loudoun’s lone Democrat in Richmond, said, “I guess we’ll get an opportunity to see whether the Republicans have been sincere in their claims that they want to have a full discussion on it, apart from the budget.” Greason and Del.

Virginia and the House’s did not include any mention of expanding coverage. Both chambers rejected the other’s proposal. The assembly has until July 1 to adopt a two-year spending plan or face possible government shut down. But Del. Tag Greason (R-32), one of 12 budget conferees, expects the state will have a budget by the end of this week. Greason is sporting a thick beard after vowing not to shave until the budget is adopted, but he said Tuesday he will wait until a spending plan is signed by Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) before he grabs the razor. “I am hopeful that this change of power in the Senate will certainly move things along,” he said.

“This is terrible timing to say the very least. It’s unexpected and exceedingly frustrating for those of us who were holding out to close the coverage gap for hundreds of thousands of Virginians.”

he Lovettsville Town Council will debate Thursday whether to move forward with its contract to purchase the house and 1.5-acre lot at 12A E. Pennsylvania Ave. For the past several years, town leaders have been examining the merits of acquiring land behind the current town office to provide more buffer space and options for expansion. Those options include building a larger town office at the present location and expanding the parking lot to provide spaces to support downtown businesses and organizations. The town earlier had attempted to purchase only a portion of the 12A E. Pennsylvania

Ave. lot, but the owner rejected the offer. The council said it would revisit the question if the parcel came back on the market. Early last month, the property was listed for sale and the town was the successful bidder with an offer of $329,900. The council earlier had authorized Town Manager Keith Markel to pursue the contract and is expected to approve it Thursday evening. Markel said the town’s intent is to buy the property and then subdivide the lot—retaining a portion of the undeveloped land that is adjacent to the town’s lot, and reselling the house and remaining land as soon as possible. Markel has recommended that the council confirm the contract so the town

can go to closing by the end of June. Under the proposal, the purchase would be made using money from the town’s General Fund reserve, currently at approximately $1.5 million. “Our expectation is that we’d get most of it back,” Markel said Monday. The piece the town wants possibly could be used for the construction of a new town hall, although stormwater management concerns on the land, which is flat, would drive costs up, according to Markel. The town also is looking at two other locations for a new town hall. Although the current government center is woefully undersized, the town has not yet pursued financing for building a new one and any construction remains several years in the future. The town

will continue design work for a new building, on which to date it has spent about $30,000, with a similar amount still available this fiscal year. Current planning envisions a one-story, multi-purpose, 6,500-square-foot building that would cost about $2.8 million. “Mainly, we wanted to strike while the iron was hot,” Markel said of the town’s present contract. In the meantime, the town would use the portion of the land it retains for events, such as Oktoberfest, or to provide more public parking. That latter option ties in with the revival of the commercial component of Town Center, which had lapsed over the past two years as a result of the recession. The town is reviewing new development plans for the project. n

Hamilton Adopts Budget, Looks To Fill Staff Positions Margaret Morton

n the final meeting of the Hamilton Town Council’s term Monday night, the panel formally adopted a $1.59 million budget, supported by a 28-cent real estate tax rate. Mayor Greg Wilmoth, who did not seek re-election in May, noted the new council will continue to wrestle with utility system concerns and will have to fill several staff positions that had been advertised, including that of a part-time zoning administrator—left vacant by the resignation of David Beniamino last month. Starting July 1, Councilman Dave Simpson will take over as mayor. Councilmen Mike Snyder and Dimitri Kesari were re-elected and former Councilman Craig Green returns to Town Hall, filling Simpson’s council seat. Simpson said the town has received applications from two good candidates for the zoning administrator post, with interviews planned this week. The job will require 10-20 hours per pay period. Also, the town has received one application for the position of maintenance supervisor. The council agreed to move forward with a new initiative to provide employees and council members with official identification badges. “When they’re showing up at someone’s house, everyone will have a photo ID,” Simpson said. Also during the meeting, the council heard from former Mayor Ray Whitbey who urged town leaders to work harder to ensure compliance with Zoning Ordinance regulations. “I think people like the town to look good. If there are violations, we should enforce them,” Whitbey said. n

tudents with disabilities are three times more likely to be disciplined than the rest of their peers in Loudoun County Public Schools, a statistic the School Board wants to correct. The board approved the addition of a new paragraph in its student discipline policy Tuesday that asks school administrators to consider unique circumstances or harmful effects of punishment, as well as a special education student’s Individualized Education Plan, when it disciplines students. The small change to the policy is one of 39 recommendations made by the Student Discipline Task Force, a committee of parents, educators, law enforcement officers and medical professionals formed by the School Board in 2012 to scrutinize the schools’ discipline model and make suggestions for reforms. The largest gap in discipline numbers is between the general student population

and students with disabilities, but data shows minority students also receive harsher and more frequent punishments. Black students, compared with the rest of Loudoun’s student population, are disciplined at a rate of 2.5-1 and Hispanic students are disciplined at a rate of 1.5-1, according to Debbie Rose (Algonkian), who sits on the Discipline Hearing Committee, Deputy Superintendent Ned D. Waterhouse, who sits in on most discipline hearings, said the policy change is just a good reminder; teachers and administrators are already asked to consider unique circumstances when considering students’ discipline. “It’s exactly what we do… This is designed to reinforce and remind people of our procedure,” he told the board when the policy change was presented as an information item at the May 26 meeting. He also stressed that the Loudoun school system holds a better student discipline record than its neighboring school systems. Fairfax

County Public Schools has 50 percent more out-of-school suspensions than Loudoun, and Prince William Public Schools disciplines twice the number of students with disabilities and racial minorities than Loudoun. “It is true [that] disproportionality exists relative to our own population, but in comparison to the school divisions around us our trends are down,” Waterhouse said, adding that Loudoun’s out-of-school suspensions have dropped by 25 percent compared with two years ago. Bill Fox (Leesburg), who sits on the Student Discipline Committee, said there might be a misconception that special education or minority students “do more things wrong. But when we looked at the data we saw two students who’ve done the same thing wrong, and one gets a couple of days suspension and another gets a longer suspension… There is an actual issue that we need to address here.” School Board member Tom Reed (At Large), who chairs the board’s Discipline

arent Carrie Crossfield describes it best: “It’s like 34 field trips in one day delivered to school.” Mountain View Elementary School last Wednesday bustled with representatives from just about every career field imaginable for its annual STEM Field Day. Orbital Sciences Corporation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Dominion Virginia Power, Purcellville Fire Department and 30 other companies and organizations set up stations at the school in Purcellville and invited the students to rotate through to see science, technology, engineering and math in motion. “Whoa, awesome,” was the reaction from one student when she spotted a moonwalking fruit fly during a presentation by scientists from Janelia Farm Research Campus.

One nerve in the fruit flies has been genetically altered to make the flies walk backwards when the air around them reaches body temperature. That had the students rubbing small containers of fruit flies in their hands to warm them up and encourage the flies to pull a Michael Jackson.

Hearing Committee, said while Loudoun “is better off than surrounding jurisdictions, we have a ways to go to improve it,” and he called the policy change the first step in doing that. His committee will look at more student discipline statistics in July “to help us hone in on areas for improvement,” he said. In November, the School Board added four of the recommendations from the Student Discipline Task Force to its legislative program to formally request changes to state law. Two of them request the removal of mandatory expulsions for drug offenses, weapons and pneumatic weapons violations, and would exclude a student’s statements made as a result of questioning by a school division employee from being used as evidence against the student in criminal proceedings unless a parent or legal custodian were present. “We’re moving forward on the task force’s recommendations,” Reed said. “We’re not going to complete them this year but the idea is to make steady progress.” n

Tara spent the next summer, five days a week for eight weeks, in school to play catch-up to the class of 2014. She missed an advanced diploma by one course, personal finance— which she said was partly due to a change in requirements—and missed the cut to get into her dream school, Brigham Young University. But she instead got a hefty scholarship from Utah State University. She wants to study art education and pursue a career teaching art and later work as an art therapist. Now just days from having her diploma in hand, Tara said she has no regrets about graduating early, or even missing the mark to get into BYU. “If I got into BYU, I wouldn’t have gotten this huge scholarship,” she said, and she calls the struggles during her sophomore year a blessing. “Even though it really sucked at the time, I’m really grateful. I think it happened for a reason, and that’s why I’m here now, ready to graduate. It’s how it was meant to be.”

ew high school students know what they want to do with their lives before they go to college. But 18-year-old Devin Clawson has big dreams and is working to make them happen. “My big passion is music,” the Heritage High School senior said, “particularly in the rock and metal genre.” Devin has been writing and performing his own music since he was 12 years old after being turned on to music by his parents who were both rock fans. “I grew up listening to Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses,” he said, “Aerosmith is my favorite band and it’s all because of the tapes [my parents] put in their car while driving around with their 5-year-old. My dad also took me to all the shows before I could drive.” He focused that love of music, and a work ethic born while helping out at his family’s remodeling company, on starting a metal band called Disengaged in 2010. Clawson is the lead singer of the band, which brings its heavy guitar sounds to the stage at the teen-friendly Empire Nightclub in

ara Hutchinson hasn’t really felt a part of the class of 2014 until just recently. While most her classmates are 18, or soon to be, she just turned 17 last month. Tara is graduating a year early after skipping her junior year of high school. “I’m starting to feel a part of the graduating class of 2014,” she said this week, ahead of accepting her diploma Monday. The decision to skip a grade started as a way to escape high school as soon as possible. The bubbly teen described her freshman year at Woodgrove as great and fun, “and then it all kind of went down hill.” She got caught in the middle of an argument between friends and, by her sophomore year, found most her friends had severed ties with her. Any attempts to play athletics also were unsuccessful because, she said, coaches favored other students they had coached previously. “After all that I just hated school so much,” she said. So in the middle of her sophomore year she, together with her parents, decided to skip her junior year and graduate early. While the social side of school was tough for Tara, she excelled in the classroom. She took as many honors courses as her schedule allowed and maintained straight As. “So my counselor said, ‘yes, you can do this,’” she said.

Springfield for crowds that reach up to 1,000 people. His musical talents also have been showcased in a different venue for the past two years. When the Heritage High School’s drama teacher was looking for a talented male vocalist, she “kind of forced me into auditioning,” Devin said. “It turned out to be one of the best things I ever did in high school.” Devin played the leads in “West Side Story” and “Les Misérables”. Not only did acting help him get out of his comfort zone, but it also improved his singing abilities by teaching him how to “get up [on stage] and stay up there and be clear the whole time” and to hit higher notes with more confidence, he said. Devin’s success extends beyond the stage. He is a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society and the National Honor Society and holds a 3.9 GPA. He will attend Christopher Newport University this fall and plans to major in marketing while still keeping his sights set on a future career in music. “A big reason I chose CNU is because right near Norfolk [there is] a huge hardcore rock and metal scene which I can thrive in,” he said. “Music is my end goal, but I just want to have that back-up plan of college.” Clawson has dreams of touring full time with a band, but has not discounted a solo career. He learned to love playing acoustically while his fellow band members were in college. “I’d like to think that I’ll be living on the road and seeing what I can see while I can,” he said. — Zack Wajsgras

To Sam Shipp, you run an extraordinary high school. The fact that you attended every show was inspiring. Most times, it’s sports that get the glory, while the arts get what’s left. Your presence at these events magnetized an entire student body. You fostered unity, while allowing performers to express individuality. My daughter discovered herself, her many gifts, as a result.

To David Noland and Jessica Morgan, you were consummate instructors. It was apparent how much of your own lives were invested in the success of your shows. There were times I thought you actually lived at the school. I will treasure the smiles on stage and the rising confidence I observed in your students. You always brought out their best. To the parent volunteers of the WMAA, I appreciated the trips you chaperoned and the constant concession work. My time was limited to contribute in the large-scale ways you did. I donated, but that was easy by contrast to your efforts in the trenches. I noticed it all and was grateful more than I acknowledged while rushing to simply make curtain-call.

O pinio n

To Astrid Willemsma, the guidance counselor who went above and beyond, a large slice of college acceptance belongs to you. The roadmaps you offered and the knowledge you shared made a “first-timer” less fearful about the process. Thanks for being on the other end of the phone and answering emails. I imagine you got tired of seeing my name, but you never showed it.

To Wakefield School and the tough love you were forced to deliver. You held my kid close for 9 golden years. Her exit was difficult, but necessary and life-changing. I want you to know I understand it was equally hard for you, and in the end, the right motivational move. We both miss friends and community, but Kate remains committed to “seek the challenge, make a difference, and lead an extraordinary life.” She will hold the virtues you taught her in her hip pocket and she will always be proud she wore your tartan.

To Dawn Walter, Stacey Hoffman, Elizabeth Henkel, and Michelle Jabbour, your work with young women helps them to reclaim self-esteem. You were life-savers and respected counselors. Thank you for reminding Kate to love her reflection in the mirror every day. Thank you for holding her accountable. To Mia Flemming, and Komal Dwivedi, your blend of teaching and nurturing provided more outlets for creativity. Thank you for remaining checked-in and curious about her path. To adult friends, Michele Tolotta-Erwin, Julie Rogers, Cathy Bates, Wendy Thomas, Jen Rinehart, Debi Alexander, Kathleen Hanagan, Kathy Regan, and Patricia Lewis, thank you for being strong women who set examples of leadership, discipline, style, feminism, and grounding. There is something powerful for a teenager to have a stable of roles models. In each of you, she saw possibilities. To the ultimate cheering section, Liz Mykietyn, Justin Collins, the late Dawn Brady Collins, Justin Burton, Barbara Frueler, Dorothy Matje, and Dave Thomas, your attendance provided more people to look for in the crowd. I was warmed by moments of connection and your journeys to Purcellville. It always mattered who was there, especially on those tense opening nights. To family in its many forms – thank you for unconditional love. You never failed to deliver when we needed your shoulders, your acceptance, and your steadfast presence. Brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, step-parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, nothing could be more validating than knowing you were in her corner and mine. Mom and Dad, I especially want to thank you for never hesitating to jump in your car and drive 4 hours to see your granddaughter. Relationship is the real glue that holds families together. You two walked the walk (or drove the drive). To Tony Crescenzo, there are no words to express the recognition of your love for our daughter and your paternal sacrifices. I am grateful for friendship and arriving on this day at peace with one another. If we weren’t able to make it through better or worse, this is the greatest gift we can give our child. Thank you for the times you worked with me, even when it was hard. To Sherry Cupac, there are few human beings on this earth who love as unselfishly, while remaining committed to truth, compassion, and partnership. We are lucky to know you, let alone share our lives. Thank you for being another steady heartbeat in service of our unique union. Kate is a better person for having known you, as am I. To Kate, my pride is eclipsed today only by the knowledge and recognition of these wonderful people who walked, shoulder-to-shoulder with us. Keep them close as you venture into the great wideopen. Their lessons will serve as the strongest foundation for your success. Call on them when life sends its punches. Their wisdom will deflect the blows and carry you forward.

Supervisors then went a step further and asked Loudoun Water to hold a public hearing and community input sessions to keep residents updated on the situation and to hear their thoughts about the future of the reservoir. Authority leaders agreed. Supervisors also expressed dissatisfaction with how the closing was handled. “It sounds like the mistakes that have been made were not errors in judgments for the plan, but how it was communicated,” Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) said. “I think it was very poorly handled from a PR standpoint.” Letourneau, however, made the comparison with the recent closing of the Natural History Museum’s dinosaur exhibit, which will be in effect for several years. It is not ideal and upsets the visitors, but it is necessary for the future of the museum, he said. “We’re going to have to bite the bullet, shut down and fix the problems,” Supervisor Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) said, noting he was particularly concerned about teenagers climbing over the spillway. “If someone goes over that, we’re going to have another issue.” Supervisor Ken Reid (R-Leesburg) and • More success in school • Faster mental performance several residents who spoke at the meeting on the athletic field • Less time spent doing homework pressed Loudoun Water about whether access • Greater confidence in could be left open to some of the users at • Better memory at least part of the time.

delegation of Loudoun representative traveled to the Shelton-Badgett North Carolina Center for Viticulture and Enology Friday in hopes of establishing a similar program to provide specialized training that will help take Virginia wines to the next level. The Loudoun government representatives included Supervisor Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge), Purcellville Mayor Bob Lazaro, Purcellville Assistant Town Manager Patrick Childs and Loudoun County Agricultural Development Officer Kellie Boles. Northern Virginia Community College Provost Julie Leidig was accompanied by two members of the community college’s horticultural department, Dave Scheid and Sally Wrenn. State representatives included Stephen Versen, from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and Susan Wagner, from the Virginia Wine Board’s Marketing Office. During the daylong visit, the group lunched at The Harvest Grill at Shelton Vineyards, visited Shelton Vineyards—in itself a tourism destination—and finished up the day with a tour of the Shelton-Badgett Center and its 6.5-acre vineyard. The Shelton-Badgett center, a state-of-theart viticulture and enology hub constructed on the grounds of the Surrey Community College just south of Virginia’s border, was the focus of the tour, with a view to its being a model for a similar center in Loudoun. There, students study viticulture and enology and make wine, along with designing and producing the labels for the bottles. Students have achieved success in their winemaking. A glass case in the atrium showed an impressive number of award-winning bottles, as the student-produced Surry Cellars wines earned eight medals in their first international competition—the 14th Annual Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in Rochester, NY. Altogether, the Shelton-Badgett Center’s wines have earned 17 medals in five months. The center is a cooperative venture between the Shelton brothers, Charlie and Ed, who developed the vineyard from a former tobacco farm in the late 1990s—planting the first grapes in 2001—and G. Frank Sells, the now retired college president who spearheaded the legislative efforts to win state support for the venture. The center was pitched as a stimulus to rescue the area from the economic stagnation that resulted from the loss of Surry’s tobacco and textile industries. “These guys came in as angels to revitalize their own community,” Leidig said, noting the state kicked in money to build the center, and agreed to waive the rules about what community colleges could do on their campuses. The first viticulture and enology classes started in rudimentary premises in 1999, but it was the push by the Shelton brothers that resulted in development of the purpose-built center. In 2003, the brothers received licensing

through the state of North Carolina for a bonded winery. They also built the topranked Harvest Grill, and a nearby inn, to form a tourism destination complex. Also that year, after a community survey, a steering committee was formed for the center. A combination of bond funding, state appropriations, grants and private donations, totaling $5.6 million, resulted in the center’s opening in 2010, with classes beginning in January 2011. That success could provide useful examples for Loudoun, members of the delegation agreed. With its 42 wineries, the county’s wine industry is seeking to match the quality of its product with the quantity of its production centers, as well as to develop new sources for grapes—a continuing concern as the Leesburg Today/Margaret Morton county’s wine proShelton-Badgett North Carolina duction grows.

The media company held a grand opening celebration last week at 44927 George Washington Blvd., Suite 120, in Ashburn. “Our name may have changed, but our commitment to serving women has not wavered at all. This new location is the first bricks and mortar location that we have had since our founding and we specifically chose Loudoun County because our core audience is here,” owner Hulya Aksu said. The magazine has been in business for almost eight years. The rebranding to the name Posh Seven is intended to describe the area it covers around Rt. 7 and its demographic group of posh and savvy women. The new office also will display local artwork, with pieces from the Nelligan Gallery in Ashburn currently on exhibit.

he Stone Bridge Bulldogs stood on the edge of history as the crowd went to its feet, waiting for that long-anticipated moment. That moment came Friday, June 6, in Ashburn as Stone Bridge (23-1) beat Freedom-South Riding 2-1 to win the 5A North Region championship, the first regional title in SBHS baseball history. Both teams were already assured a berth in next week’s VHSL state tournament, but there was still plenty on the line for both teams. Neither team scored in the first inning. Freedom (13-13) got on the board in the second after William Sullivan sacrificed to

right field, allowing Tyler Parnell to score. The Bulldogs tied the game in the bottom of the fourth with a new pitcher on the mound, as Michael Zubovich was pulled after three innings of play. Nicholas Belinsky gave up a single to the first batter he faced, Dave Mocabee. Eli Quiceno then bunted, allowing Mocabee to advance to second. After a groundout to shortstop for the second out (and after Mocabee advanced to third), Michael Kuzbel dropped a bunt that landed near the right side of the infield in a spot that just barely allowed him to reach first while Mocabee scored to tie the game. Mocabee shone again in the bottom of the fifth, after a number of eyebrow-raising plays before he went to bat. Eric Johnson

tone Bridge High School senior right-hander JB Bukauskas was selected in the 20th round of the MLB Amateur Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks June 7. He was the 600th player taken overall in the 40-round draft. But the standout pitcher remains firm on his decision to attend the University of North Carolina rather than joining the pro ranks. Bukauskas, rated among the top 50 draft prospects, informed MLB teams in

early May that he would be attending college by beginning classes at UNC June 19. As a precautionary measure, Bukauskas has been shut down for the rest of the high school playoff season because of inflammation in his left shoulder. He went 7-0 with a 0.00 ERA, 88 strikeouts and six walks in 41.1 innings. He was named the Gatorade State Player of the Year for baseball. Bukauskas is the first player drafted directly out of a Loudoun County high school since Park View’s Joe Foote was taken in the 47th round by Minnesota in 1997. n

walked and Mason Newcombe singled off a bunt attempt of his own before John Callahan was called out on strikes. Kyle Palmer walked with one out, but during his at-bat, interference was called at second—moving Johnson to third—and Newcombe was caught stealing second. Mocabee then singled to left-center on a 1-0 fastball to bring Johnson home and make it 2-1. “At the plate, I was just looking for a fastball, because that’s the best pitch [that] I hit right now, and that’s what I got,” Mocabee said. Lawton Riggs made his first start for the Bulldog varsity team after being called up from junior varsity late in the season. He had four strikeouts in 5.2 innings and gave up four hits while walking just one. Continued on Next Page

Stone Bridge’s Dave Mocabee delivers what would turn out to be a huge hit in his team’s victory over Freedom June 6.

L o udo un Ne ws

“I was nervous, and, to be honest, very nervous,” he said about his first start being on such as big stage. “My coaches support me and my players support me so that’s all I needed.” “It feels great,” he added. “It’s good to know that there’s more to come. I’m still pretty young and I’m glad for that.” Riggs, a sophomore who still sports a full set of braces, was pulled with two outs in the top of the sixth for classmate Brett Kreyer, who threw six innings in the Bulldogs’ Monday win over North Stafford in the regional quarterfinal. Kreyer walked Jack Lerch before getting Belinsky to fly out to second to end the inning and leave the bases loaded. In the home half of the sixth, Kuzbel nearly scored another base runner, and would have if not for a questionable base running error by Eli Quiceno. Kuzbel flew out to left and Quiceno was expected to come home from third to make it 3-1, but the sophomore catcher left third a second early and was called out at home after a brief discussion between the umpires. “You can’t explain some things that happen during a game with base running,” Stone Bridge

head coach Sam Plank said. “The good thing about this team is that they ignore me a lot when I get upset and keep being tough, and we found a way to win. That’s what great teams do.” Kreyer stayed in for the top of the seventh to finish the game, and did just that. After Sullivan was called out on strikes, Trent Gilmore singled to right and Kyle Wrighte singled to center. Jake Anderson grounded out on a fielder’s choice, advancing Wright and Gilmore to second and third, respectively. Garrett St. Laurent was intentionally walked, creating a force situation and setting the stage for William Roukis. Roukis struck out swinging and Quiceno dropped the ball, but picked it up and stepped on home plate, jumped in the air and the Bulldogs stormed the field, piling on top of their catcher as they celebrated their first regional title. “I try not to think too much. I’ve pitched in a lot of big situations in my life and it’s just another one of those,” Kreyer said. “Our coaches have been waiting for this; we’ve all been waiting for this. I think this was our season, we had a good shot and we [showed] it.” Stone Bridge will play Hickory at Lake Braddock High School in Burke Friday at 7 p.m. in the state semifinals. n

With Chaise Lounge At The Tally Ho

Jan Mercker

“M

ad Men” fans and lounge lizards: get ready to set your time machines back to 1962 with an evening of sophisticated lounge-style music from DCbased Chaise Lounge. The six-member band, billed as equal parts dry wit and dry martini, was scheduled to take the stage at Leesburg’s Tally Ho Theatre Saturday, June 21, but the show has been rescheduled for Nov. 1. The band plays mostly originals, featuring contemporary lyrics performed in a retro style, with witty lyrics and engaging storylines, along with a sprinkling of carefully chosen standards and a few surprises. The brainchild of bandleader Charlie Barnett, who plays guitar and piano, and lead singer Marilyn Older, Chaise Lounge has been accumulating devotees in the DC area and beyond since its beginnings in the early 2000s. For Barnett, the band’s formation was the answer to a longtime need for the kind of classy, vintage sounds he had long admired from the likes of Henry Mancini and other geniuses of the ’50s and ’60s. “There’s a need in my life to go experience what I call smart entertainment,” Barnett said. “There was a way they used that word in the ’50s where smart didn’t mean brainy—it meant sharp, stylish. We really try to present a really stylish evening.” For the group’s fans, known as Chaise Lounge Nation, a show is a chance to dress up, have a few martinis and swing to the band’s “early stereo” sound. Although cocktail attire is by no means necessary, many fans

look forward to a chance to put on their swanky threads, have a few drinks and experience the retro phenomenon with some of the area’s top jazz musicians. “Everybody who sees the show describes it as cinematic in a ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ kind of way,” Barnett said. “They feel like they’ve stepped back into this 1962 nightclub. They feel transported.”

Putting on a visually appealing show (as well as a musically satisfying one) is key to Barnett and his band mates, who make their own retro style a big part of each performance. “Nobody ever says let’s go hear music— they say let’s go see some music. Make sure you give them something to see,” he said. “Everybody in this band has the best collection of suits of any musician they know.”

But while style is important, it’s the substance of the band’s songwriting and singer Marilyn Older’s lush vocals that keep fans coming back, Barnett said. Many fans start coming to Chaise Lounge shows because of an interest in, or a nostalgia for, the time period, he said, but they return to hear engaging original material like the popular “Devil On My Cell Phone” and audience favorite “The Coolest Car I Ever Saw.” “The way Marilyn delivers a song is also something out of another time period,” Barnett said, comparing his friend and band mate with musical legends like June Christy, Carmen McRae and Astrud Gilberto. Older is also beloved by fans new and old for her warmth and rapport with the audience. “She gets a reaction from the audience like I’ve Continued on Page 45

never seen, and I’ve worked with hundreds of singers,” Barnett said. “There’s nobody who has the effect that she has. They all come out of the theater after a concert and they want to be her best friend.” Older, meanwhile, says that her natural shyness may in fact help her relate to the audience by keeping things real. “Who knew that being a socially anxious introvert would make for such great rapport with the audience?” the singer said. “The best shows start with a real, honest connection. Often that comes through laughter or a shared appreciation for this great experience we get to have together. The band members are all great friends and we are always having fun on stage. We just want to be sure the audience feels welcome to the party.” Older, a classically trained pianist who lives in Alexandria, is a homeschooling parent of children ages 11 and 7. She and her children have structured academic time weekday mornings, and in the afternoons her children pursue their own interests while she gives piano lessons and rehearses for upcoming gigs. Her kids were raised on the Chaise Lounge sound, and for a long time thought lounge was the only kind of music there was. “I did most of my rehearsing in the car so they learned most of our songs by heart and, against their will, became my biggest fans,” she said. “They now have a nice eclectic array of favorite bands but they always say that Mommy is their favorite singer.” The six-piece ensemble is rounded out by a roster of musicians hand-picked by Barnett for their sensibilities and professionalism, including Tommy Barrick on drums, Gary Gregg on clarinet and saxophone, Joe Jackson on trombone and Pete Ostle on bass. The band has been together for more than a dozen years with only one personnel change since its debut, Barnett said. Maintaining a productive collaboration among six band mem-

bers can be challenging. Bethesda-based Barnett writes music for film and television and is often on the West Coast. Most of the band’s other members are full-time musicians with a range of other projects, and most of the band members have children and plenty of family commitments. With limited time to practice, getting the most out of each rehearsal is key. “All the guys in the band are professionals,” Barnett said “Almost all of them have led bands. They kind of require what I offer: it’s an organized operation. Rehearsals are organized. Our gigs are organized. The tours are organized, and nobody is wasting anybody’s time.” The group is also carried forward by a sense of mutual admiration, respect and friendship, members said, and a sense of give and take as music is being selected and arranged. “Everybody in the band feels valued because the way it’s structured, they all bring incredible strength to every arrangement, to every song we do…Their role is more than just the instrument they play. They bring a certain sensibility to every piece of music. They bring way more than that instrument’s notes to bear on this…There’s a sense of being treasured.” The band’s retro style has led some listeners to compare them to the internationally known, Portland, OR-based orchestral band Pink Martini, but Barnett said that Chaise Lounge’s reliance on original music, rather than standards, sets them apart. When the group covers standards, he said, they are often unexpected, like the band’s popular version of Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House” or Bobbie Gentry’s spooky 1967 hit “Ode To Billie Joe.” Chaise Lounge has released six albums over the last 13 years, with a seventh, “Mambo Noir,” slated for release this fall on CD and, of course, on vinyl. n

W

ith the break in the state budget stalemate, the Democrats and Republicans in the General Assembly and the McAuliffe administra-

tion face a new challenge—how to avoid falling right back into partisan gridlock.

Remember how often state leaders pledged to

work better together if only the tables would turn? We’re there now, facing a $1 billion budget shortfall and still no closer to consensus on how to make the most efficient use of the federal Medicaid funds available for the taking. Just as Democrats were willing to play a game of fiscal chicken by pushing their Medicare plan all the way to the deadline for a state government shutdown, Republicans are now set up for a power play of their own—poised to dictate their will on the governor’s office.

Although effective for scoring political points

with their home teams, neither approach represents a formula for long-term success. And in a state where voters are as divided as the legislature over the issues, political points don’t carry as much weight anymore.

The leaning of power may have turned dramati-

cally with the resignation of a single state senator, but the situation seems little improved.

Will a rational compromise emerge from this

morass? That does not seem to be the goal of anyone in a position to accomplish it.

LETTERS to the editor Held Hostage

D Dear Editor:

uring a Sept. 25, 2103, debate sponsored by the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, then Mr. McAuliffe declared, “No budget will be shut down in Virginia over the Medicaid expansion.” Mr. McAuliffe also said on the campaign trail that, “These things should never be used as bargaining chips for our budget.” I agree with Mr. McAuliffe, the commonwealth of Virginia’s budget should not be held hostage for a liberal agenda of expanding Obamacare in Virginia. The Virginia Senate Republican leader, Sen. Norment, recently stated, “As a Senate conferee on House Bills 29 and 30, I can personally attest that if Medicaid expansion was removed

from these negotiations they would be settled expeditiously.” Mr. McAuliffe ran as someone who would work across the aisle to get things done. Where has that sentiment been with the current budget negotiations? We are less than 30 days away from a state government shutdown. It is time for Gov. McAuliffe to stand by his promises on the campaign trail and stop holding our state budget hostage. Medicaid expansion needs to be de-coupled from the commonwealth’s budget. Ryan Gleason, Lovettsville

verse reaction from the coal industry, the agency should have issued parallel regulations on emissions from meat industry operations. Each state could than determine its own optimal strategy for curbing greenhouse gases. A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat production accounts for 18 percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested that the contribution may be closer to 50 percent. The meat industry generates carbon dioxide by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to confine, feed, transport and slaughter animals. The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively. In the meantime, each of us can reduce the devastating effects of climate change every time we eat. Our local supermarket offers a rich variety of plant-based lunch meats, hotdogs, veggie burgers and dairy product alternatives, as well as ample selection of vegetables, fruits, grains and nuts. Product lists, easy recipes and transition tips are readily available online. Alex Sankari, Leesburg

income kids who rely on school meal programs, this means poor nutrition and even empty stomachs. According to the USDA, only one in seven children who participated in the National School Lunch Program in 2012 also participated in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This means that six out of seven kids who are at a high risk of going hungry missed out on free healthy meals. We need to do better for our kids here in Virginia. SFSP was created to make sure that lowincome children continue to receive free meals meeting federal nutrition guidelines over the summer recess. Often these breakfasts, lunches and snacks are paired with recreational and learning activities—an excellent opportunity to keep kids physically and mentally healthy. Schools, camps, churches and even community organizations are all able to operate the SFSP. Some sites even offer meals to all children regardless of family income—reducing the stigma of participation and making sure all kids are eating healthier. Despite the importance of the SFSP, many families are unaware it exists. That’s why we need to get the word out here in Leesburg. We need to make sure that every child in Virginia is getting fed this summer. Nick Arent, Virginia Fair Share Education Fund

Goat Goodness At Catoctin ES

Leesburg Today/Zack Wajsgras

L if e s t yle s

The end of the school year always brings an assortment of unusual activities as students are rewarded for going above and beyond the typical curriculum requirements. At Catoctin Elementary School Thursday, teachers got to smooch goats in front of a crowd of students and administrators. The school’s administration welcomed the goats from one of the student’s farms to celebrate the collection of more than 34,000 Box Tops for Education in support of the school’s fundraising efforts. Each box top is valued at 10 cents for use in online shopping for supplies, snacks and apparel at participating retailers.
