andidates for local offices in Loudoun remain on the hunt for money that can boost their bids, judging from the most recent required campaign-finance

April 1 to May 27. He had $25,279 on hand, as of May 27, to Volpe’s $122,184. The supervisors’ Broad Run District also has been the site of significant fundraising this year. Broad Run Republican nominee Ron Meyer raised the most money of any supervisor candidate during the first quarter, and contributions continued to come in during the most recent period. He collected $11,841. Meyer’s opponent, Democrat Al Nevarez, had the least money of any supervisor hopeful in the first quarter, but his campaign coffer grew in the latest period thanks to a $21,000 self loan. He raised $3,408 in contributions. Continued on Page 20

Supervisor Suzanne M. Volpe brought in a pile of dough. The Algonkian District Republican collected $31,942, up from $28,576 last time. The total was the largest among supervisor candidates, and included a contribution of $17,016 from the campaign of Del. Thomas A. “Tag” Greason (R-32). Volpe also took in lots of money from businesses and/or business owners, though her challenger, Democrat Andrew Resnick, did receive a $250 monetary contribution and a $200 in-kind contribution from Shawn Mitchell, CEO of Ashburn-based heating and airconditioning contractor Modern Mechanical.

Leaders with Mobile Hope, such as Director of Philanthropy Bonnie Inman (pictured), want to transform its property on Sycolin Road into a life skills center, which would house homeless people ages 18 to 21.

Mike Stancik


eesburg may soon get a shelter to serve homeless young adults. The Leesburg Town Council has initiated a zoning ordinance amendment to allow for overnight shelters in the Crescent Design District, where Mobile Hope Loudoun is looking to build a center for homeless young adults ages 18 to 21. The nudge to change the zoning ordinance came from Mobile Hope, which wants to expand its current operations at 31 Sycolin Road SE. Right now, a small building on the property houses its supplies to provide food, clothes, hygiene products, school supplies, medical care, books and toys to children in need.

But the organization wants to be able to house young adults who, after turning 18, are no longer eligible to live in youth homeless shelters. “I’ve noticed a void in services for kids 18 to 21 over the last four years, so what we’d like to do is build a life skills facility,” Mobile Hope Executive Director Donna Fortier said. “A lot of kids have been living in survival mode…they’re struggling just to get through every day.” Fortier, developer Leonard S. “Hobie” Mitchel and Jack Robinson, principal of Loudoun’s alternative Douglass School, were among several speakers advocating the zoning change at recent council meetings. The area is zoned for only commercial uses. Fortier said young adults would be handselected for the shelter, and the center could eventually expand to serve those aged 21 to 24.

She noted there often isn’t room at adult housing centers, and when there is, the homeless young people have to share a large room with “50-plusyear-old men,” and that isn’t the best environment for learning. “We think this would be a great solution to a terrible problem,” Fortier said. “We’ve seen a lot more kids who are couch-surfing or have a bad situation at home or staying in their cars.” In his support for the life skills center, Robinson said three or four students at Douglass are considered homeless. The new facility would not only provide housing, but also teach life skills such as balancing a checkbook, drafting résumés and working with mentors. “These kids don’t have anybody,” Mitchel said. “They just need some directions and help Continued on Page 9

tudents from Broad Run High School went to Congress last week to meet with U.S. Sen. Mark Warner’s staffers. The June 11 trip represented the climax of the BRHS ONEVoice Club’s nine-month campaign advocating for the passage of the Electrify Africa Act. Since last fall, members of the ONEVoice Club have been advocating the passage of the Electrify Africa Act, which would provide 50 million Sub-Saharan Africans with electricity for the first time. “When we think about the dire privations of extreme poverty, such as disease and poor maternal health, many of them can be remediated by access to electricity. In fact, energy poverty is, in many ways, the underlying determinant of poverty,” said ONEVoice Club President Adriel Sumathipala. In preparation for their lobby visit to Congress, members of the club launched the Letters for Lives campaign asking fellow students to write letters to Warner. The campaign was developed as an assignment for social science and English teachers to incorporate into their lesson plans. Through the Letters for Lives campaign and nine months of advocacy work, ONEVoice was able to deliver more than 200 handwritten letters.

hree teens have been charged in connection with a June 9 hold-up of a food delivery worker. The alleged robbery happened at 8:30 p.m. in front of a townhouse in the 23600 block of Sailfish Square in Ashburn. According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, the victim was attempting to deliver food to the home when he saw a male standing outside and two others near the side of the building. One of the suspects ordered him to drop the food and demanded money. A second suspect displayed a firearm in his waistband and again demanded money. They grabbed the food and fled. Deputies responded to the area and set up a perimeter while a search was conducted with the assistance of a K9 unit. The food and a replica pellet gun were found discarded in the area. Investigators identified three suspects, two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old, who were each charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. They remained held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center on Monday.

ASHBURN MURDER CASE SENT TO GRAND JURY A first-degree murder charge against an Ashburn man was sent to a Loudoun County grand jury for consideration following a hearing in District Court last Wednesday. Mihn Duy Nguyen, 38, is charged in the Jan. 15 shooting death of Corey Mattison. According to the sheriff’s office, Nguyen broke into a Sonora Lane townhouse and shot Mattison,

37, who is married to Nguyen’s ex-wife Denise. Nguyen was taken into custody at the scene. The shooting allegedly stemmed from an argument involving child custody. If the grand jury hands up an indictment, the case will move to Circuit Court for trial.

Upon his release, he will be placed on 15 years of supervised probation and he is prohibited from any unsupervised contact with minors.

A 68-year-old Manassas Park man has been charged with soliciting a teenage girl online, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office announced today. The investigation began May 28 when a patrol deputy located Denard D. Springle III a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot in the 45000 block of Woodland Road in Sterling. Inside the car were the suspect, Denard D. Springle III, and a 17-year-old girl. It was learned the two had met online and had been involved in a consensual relationship. Springle was initially charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The sheriff’s office Sex Crimes Unit pursued the case and determined Springle allegedly had solicited the teenager on multiple occasions. On June 8, he was charged with four counts of use of a communications systems to facilitate certain offenses involving children. Springle was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on Wednesday, after posting a $20,000 secured bond.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police responded to the area at about 12:30 p.m. for a report of a crash involving several vehicles and patients. A Frederick, MD, man was driving a 2003 Chevy pickup northbound when he veered into the incoming lane after a deer crossed into the road on the east shoulder, according to the sheriff’s office. The pickup went left to avoid the deer and sideswiped a southbound Chevy Astro Van driven by a Washington, DC, man and continued into a Dodge Caravan, driven by a Damascus, MD, man. Three of six children who were in the Dodge Caravan were transported to Inova Loudoun Medical Center in Leesburg for treatment of injuries described as non-life threatening. They were all wearing seat belts. The drivers of Astro Van and the Caravan were taken to the same hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office report stated. Alcohol, drugs, fatigue and speed were not factors in the crash, according to sheriff’s office Public Information Officer Kraig Troxell. The driver of the Chevy pickup was charged with general reckless driving.

She said that, although Loudoun ranks among the richest counties in the country, there are still many families and children who suffer from poverty. “This also helps increase awareness of this problem because people don’t believe it happens or that it exists here,” Fortier said. “I would have loved to have it built yesterday because it would be filled.” The ordinance change will first go to Leesburg Planning Commission for consideration, and a Town Council public hearing will follow in early fall.

in April. At Dulles Airport, anemia continues to reign, based on newly released passenger figures. Combine the two, and the total passenger count of 3.8 million in April was up 4 percent from a year before—slightly less than the national average of 4.3 percent—according to figures reported June 16 by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. The 2,005,477 passengers using Reagan National during the month represent a yearover-year increase of 9.5 percent, bringing the year-to-date passenger count up 8.7 percent from 2014 figures. At Dulles, April’s passenger total of 1,771,008 was down 1.7 percent from a year before, with the year-to-date total down 3.3 percent. Combined, the two airports saw 13.2 million passengers during the first four months of the year, an increase of 2.7 percent. That’s below the 3.7-percent increase reported nationally by the trade group Airlines for America. Reagan National is benefiting from rapid growth from Southwest, Virgin America and JetBlue, which have picked up takeoff and landing slots from the merged American/US Airways. American/US Airways remains dominant, however, accounting for a market share of 51.7 percent at the airport in April. Rounding out the top five carriers in total passengers were Delta and Southwest (each 13.2 percent), JetBlue (8.1 percent) and United (7.9 percent). Despite cutbacks, United retains its dominance at Dulles, with a market share of 62.5 percent in April. Trailing were American/US Airways (4.9 percent), Delta (4.5 percent), Frontier (3 percent) and Southwest (2.6 percent). At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, which is operated by Maryland’s state government, April’s passenger count of 2.02 million was up 5.6 percent from a year before, according to MWAA figures. Southwest is the dominant carrier, with a market share of 72.3 percent. For full data, go to n

eveloper the Van Metre Cos. is asking Loudoun County’s Board of Supervisors to approve a plan to build to 238 homes on nearly 50 acres adjacent to Liberty Elementary School and South Riding. The project envisions the construction of up to 143 townhouses and up to 95 single-family homes on property on the northeast corner of the intersection of Braddock and Gum Spring roads. Park or other open-space uses are slated for an additional 14 acres south of Braddock. Van Metre also pledges to build 30 of the townhouses as part of the county’s Affordable Dwelling Unit program for first-time homebuyers with moderate income. No one spoke at a public hearing the Board of Supervisors held on the proposals June 10, and the supervisors voted unanimously to take up the matter again July 15. It’s unclear if the supervisors will agree to allow more than 200 homes on the property. Van Metre could build more than 50 homes on the land without getting approval from the board. Another topic mentioned last week was how the developer could improve roads in the area. The Virginia Department of Transportation didn’t like Van Metre’s initial plan to realign Braddock, and Supervisor Matthew F. Letourneau (R-Dulles) suggested that a roundabout be considered as part of the project.

A report prepared for the supervisors noted that six Loudoun residents told the county that they oppose the development proposal. “All comments note poor traffic conditions in the area, largely at the intersection of Gum Spring and Braddock roads, heading east on Braddock Road, or on Route 50,” it said. In a separate but related project, Van Metre wants to build a 35,010-square-foot retail center south of Braddock. Loudoun’s Planning Commission was scheduled to hold a public hearing on that application Tuesday night.


Loudoun supervisors and county staff members Tuesday celebrated the completion of the widening of a section of Riverside Parkway/ Fort Evans Road. The road was widened from two to four lanes between Sentinel Drive and Kingsport/ Upper Meadow Drive. The project took 13 months to complete and was finished half a million dollars under budget, said Joe Kroboth, director of Loudoun’s Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure. The final price tag was $3.5 million. The work has brought a major relief to residents, said Supervisor Geary M. Higgins (R-Catoctin), and it included safety improvements. 03-777-0406, or see n

Comstock Votes Against Bill That Cuts Metro Funding Jonathan Hunley


ep. Barbara J. Comstock voted against a major spending bill last week because it reduces funding for Metrorail by $50 million. The appropriations bill for the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development was approved 216-210 on June 9, but Comstock (R-VA-10) joined 30 other House Republicans in voting against it. The legislation allocates $55.3 billion in discretionary spending for the next fiscal year, but it drops funding for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to $100 million. That has frustrated Comstock, whose district includes Loudoun County, and the rest of the metropolitan Washington, DC, congressional delegation. “Since 2009, under a partnership created by the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008, Congress has continuously fulfilled its annual commitment of $150 million in funding toward WMATA,” the congresswoman said in a prepared statement. “Unfortunately, the T-HUD Appropriations Bill does not honor that agreement, and therefore I could not support this bill as it stands. I hope, as the appropriations process continues, that the full $150 million will be restored. Congress must meet its $150 million obligation so that Metro can address important safety concerns to keep my constituents safe.” Comstock and her fellow members of the DC-area delegation, all Democrats, tried unsuccessfully last week to get $50 million for Metro back into the House bill. ` In the past, Virginia, Maryland and the

District of Columbia annually contributed $50 million each to match the $150 million yearly federal grant under the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act. The money is used for safety upgrades to Metrorail, according to Comstock’s office, and safety has been a frequent topic of discussion this year after a woman died in January and others were hurt following smoke filling a train at WMATA’s L’Enfant Plaza station. A few hours before the House vote, the DC-area delegation also sent a letter to WMATA Interim General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Jack Requa, demanding immediate action to fix a specific safety issue. A recent National Transportation Safety Board report said some power cable connectors were improperly installed, and that’s a problem, the letter said, especially because the connectors are “in place every few hundred feet along miles of Metro track.” The connectors should have put in with sealing sleeves to ensure that their assemblies are weather-tight and prevent contamination that can lead to a short circuit, which can produce smoke and fire within Metro tunnels. “We are appalled that riders’ lives may have been put at risk simply because a small, yet critical component of the power cable connectors was not installed as required by the manufacturer’s directions and WMATA engineering specifications,” the delegation wrote. “Problems arising from aging infrastructure may be understandable, but WMATA must explain how a failure to follow basic assembly instructions has been allowed to persist.”n

y the end of the summer, the Village at Leesburg will have filled more than 70,000 square feet of retail space over the past 18 months, and a visual makeover there will be complete. The shopping center’s boom comes three years after its draw for retailers lagged and its occupancy hovered between 60 and 75 percent. “Retailers are attracted by other retailers,” said Jarnell Bonds, senior marketing director for Rappaport, the leasing company that oversees the Village. “They see activity has sparked at the Village, and it’s becoming a magnet.” That more than 70,000 square feet of new retail that’s arrived during the past seven months included Smokehouse Live, a barbecue restaurant and live music venue that opened two weeks ago. Others will soon follow. In the food category, Rita’s Italian Ice soon will be serving up Italian ice and frozen custard next to a new kids play area. Also this summer, the popular Korean-style fried chicken chain BonChon will open its doors. And this fall, Mexican restaurant Plaza Azteca will add yet another dining choice. “We have great food options in numerous categories,” Village at Leesburg’s Marketing Director Staci Harris said. Other new businesses include Hair Cuttery, set to open its fourth Leesburg location in June, and Banfield Pet Hospital, which will begin taking customers in the late fall or early winter.

European Wax Center, a salon specializing in wax services, will begin serving its niche clientele in the fall, and Spokes Etc., voted among America’s Best Bike Shops in 2014 by the National Bicycle Dealers Association, will open in August. “It’s a community center that’s got something for everyone,” Bonds said. On top of the new business openings, the Village Market Square, right in the center of Village Market Boulevard, is undergoing improvements to entice patrons into enjoying the outdoors. Enhancements include a children’s pop-up water fountain, with daily bubble shows, to complement the existing kids climbing and play area. An area for expanded outdoor seating options, new landscaping and a dual fire pit and water fountain will be added. Concerts on the Village Market Square also are in the works. “We wanted to create a warm, welcoming gathering space,” Harris said. Also, a series of kinetic wind sculptures, some as tall as 30 feet, has been built by artist Lyman Whitaker at each entrance to the main retail strip. All of the work is slated to be complete before the Village’s sixth annual Summer Block Party on July 25. Another big event in the near future is the June 27 Wine and Food Festival, featuring more than 220 wines from 20-plus wineries. “We hope to keep up this pace because it’s an attractive demographic,” Bonds said. “It’s becoming an entertainment and dining mecca.” For more information, go to n

epublican Del. Thomas Davis Rust was known as a moderate, so it is perhaps appropriate that his handpicked successor speaks against the politics of division. Accomplishing the people’s business in Richmond requires working together, Raul “Danny” Vargas said in an interview. “That’s what we need right now,” the 49-year-old said. “We need leadership.” And Vargas wants to be the one providing that leadership in Virginia’s 86th House District. Rust announced in February that he wouldn’t seek an eighth term in the district, which comprises parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties, and he asked Vargas to seek the GOP nomination. The business executive accepted the task, and now he sees a House of Delegates term as another way he could serve his community. He faces Democrat Jennifer Boysko, who lost to Rust by only 32 votes in 2013. Vargas has lived in the Herndon area for 23 years, and he’s married with two sons, ages 16 and 10. But his life growing up wasn’t as idyllic. He was raised in New York City, the youngest of four children to a single mother who still can’t read or write. His family struggled with poverty and was on welfare. Vargas, however, sought a way out. So he joined the Air Force at 17, serving for seven years, and then went on to work for several brand-name businesses, including AOL and Raytheon. He founded his own company, VARCom Solutions, 11 years ago to tackle tasks such as marketing communications, technology and management consulting. Vargas chairs the Virginia Board of Workforce Development, and he was the first Hispanic in state history to serve as chairman of a mainstream chamber of commerce when he led the Dulles Regional chamber’s board. This background has helped shape his stances on what he sees as big issues for the 86th District. He said that Northern Virginia’s economy needs to become more diversified so that it doesn’t rely so much on the Defense Department and on spending from other government agencies. In turn, Vargas said, the region needs transportation infrastructure that can support such a climate. And it needs workers who have the skills necessary to succeed in the jobs that new businesses can bring. So education and workforcetraining programs in the area have to be more employer-driven, he said, to make sure that they are adequately preparing Northern Virginians to fill those positions. Improving the economy also could help struggling families, and Vargas said that assisting such members of the community is especially important to him, given his upbringing, Despite some overall economic gains, he noted, too many people are still unemployed. “And if they’re not unemployed, they’re underemployed,” he said. Considering the weight of such matters, elected leaders need to keep on task, Vargas said: They don’t have the luxury of throwing stones at each other or perpetuating a divisive atmosphere. “The situation is too dire,” he said. In addition to being a candidate for office, Vargas is a political commentator. He has appeared on national news outlets and the State Department has sent him to other countries to appear in the media discussing the U.S. political process. n

Ashburn schools by bringing what was called the “three school solution” to fruition. Before he was elected, Hornberger was one of the parent activists who urged school and county leaders to solve the overcrowding problem by opening an elementary school (Discovery Elementary, opened in 2013), middle school (Trailside Middle, opened in 2014) and high school (Riverside High, set to open in August). “The residents of the Ashburn District finally have the neighborhood schools they need to bring lasting stability to our community,” Hornberger said in a statement announcing his re-election bid. “We need to continue ensuring that our children receive the best possible educational opportunities to maximize their potential well into the future, and that our public schools continue to bring lasting value to the community.” Hornberger lauded his work with county supervisors to gain approval and funding for the previously stalled Academies of Loudoun, which will combine an expanded C.S. Monroe Technology Center, the Academy of Science, and a new Academy of Engineering and Technology. Under his leadership, the School Board also hired a new superintendent, Eric Williams, for the first time in 23 years. The change in leadership has resulted in improved collaboration among board members and school system administration, leading to better budget and educational outcomes for students, Hornberger said. His priorities for a second term include continuing to reduce class sizes, improving the quality of math instruction and preparing to implement the One to the World, Bring Your Own Technology initiative, as well as the school system’s strategic plan to better equip students for college and the workforce. Hornberger, 47, is the executive director for The Mustard Seed Foundation, a private family foundation based in Falls Church. He and his wife have lived in Ashburn Farm for 22 years. They have three children; two attend Loudoun public schools, and the other is a recent Stone Bridge High School graduate. n

sion rate. She said providing more support for students through mentorship programs or by encouraging them to get involved in their school communities may be the solution. “I think the more kids are involved in their school outside of the regular classes, the more likely they are to do better in their classes,” she said. “I really want us to put an emphasis on early intervention for at-risk youth.” Huck is excited about the opening of the Academies of Loudoun and would like to explore ideas for other specialized instruction for students, maybe in the form of law or business academies. “There’s a lot of opportunity to reach beyond the current offerings,” she said.

Huck said she’s eager to represent her stakeholders—the kids of Loudoun—on the School Board and bring with her what she’s learned as an early childhood educator and a parent of two Loudoun County Public Schools students. She’s also served as the chairwoman of the Loudoun County Youth Advisory Commission for the past three years. “I feel I can come onto the board with fresh eyes and grounded and realistic expectations, and as an advocate for what’s best for our children to make sure we are providing the best educational opportunities to all children in Loudoun County,” Huck said. She taught early childhood education for several years before an autoimmune disorder caused her to frequently catch whatever bug her students’ had. For the past five years she’s worked as the community lifestyle manager for Brambleton Community Association, a position she left this month to focus on her events business, Flip Switch Events. Among her priorities for Loudoun’s public schools, Huck said she wants to reduce overcrowding and classroom sizes, and push for a clear plan and timeline to implement full-day kindergarten countywide. She’d also like to brainstorm ways to curb the school system’s suspen-

ome House of Delegates races may seem kind of slow with five months until November’s election. But not the 87th District contest. The battle for the 87th, which comprises parts of Loudoun and Prince William counties, has featured the comings and goings of two Republicans, two Democrats and now a Libertarian, Brian Suojanen, who lives in Brambleton. Suojanen boasts a platform that covers topics ranging from the Dulles Greenway to marijuana legalization. And even if he doesn’t win election, he can claim a victory of sorts in just having been able to talk up his political party. The 41-year-old, a software engineer for the Herndon-based K12 Inc. education technology company, has lived in Virginia since 2000 and in Brambleton since 2013. He has been involved with Libertarian politics since 2002, but this year will be the first time his name is printed on an election ballot. He’s one of a handful of Virginia legislative candidates the party is fielding this fall. Suojanen met his campaign manager when she was working on Robert Sarvis’ Libertarian bid for U.S. Senate last year, and they established an official Loudoun County party affiliate. Then news that Republican incumbent David I. Ramadan wasn’t going to run for reelection gave Suojanen the impetus he needed to get in the 87th District race. He spoke well of Ramadan in an interview Monday night, and he now finds himself as part of a three-way race to succeed the incumbent. Republican Chuong Nguyen and Democrat John

Bell are the other hopefuls in the race, having garnered their parties’ nominations last month after Ramadan and Democrat Jewan “Jack” Tiwari decided not to run. Suojanen said he wants to further the profile of the Libertarian Party and highlight its ideas, which he called more modern than those of the two major parties. The party isn’t going away anytime soon, he said: “We’re in fact growing.” It’s also important, he said, for voters to know that, while national figures such as Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul may be referred to as “libertarians” (with a small “L”), they don’t necessarily jibe with the Libertarian Party’s platform. For example, Paul has a good record on civil liberties and fiscal responsibility, Suojanen said, but he veers to the right of Libertarians on social issues. On the other hand, the 87th District hopeful said he would follow his party by endorsing notions such as gun rights and the right of homosexual couples to marry. He supports marijuana legalization, and he said he would back school choice by filing legislation to provide tax credits to parents who home-school their children or send them to private school. The two biggest issues in the 87th specifically are education and traffic congestion, he said. On the former, in addition to his comments on school choice, Suojanen said that teachers need to be paid more and that his work experience has shown him how education dollars could be stretched. On the latter, he would push for distance-based pricing on the Dulles Greenway. Suojanen is married and has a 5-year-old daughter. n

fter years of planning and construction, and weeks of quiet operation, Loudoun’s newest farm brewery is gearing up for a busy summer season. Dirt Farm Brewing is located on a 100acre tract high on the Blue Ridge near Bluemont and serves up sweeping views of the Loudoun Valley along with brews that use ingredients—hops, grain and cherries—grown on the property.

It is the latest offering from Loudoun’s most progressive agritourism family. The brewery overlooks the Zurschmeide family’s popular Great Country Farms and shares the ridge with its Bluemont Winery. Owners Bruce and Janell Zurschmeide moved into the fast-growing craft beer business eight years after launching the winery in partnership with Bob and Kevin Rupy. They’ve found a friendly and helpful reception from other pioneers in Loudoun’s farm-brewing industry. Janell Zurschmeide said she already has

seen a difference between the visitors to the winery and the early explorers of Dirt Farm’s brew offerings. “The beer crowd is chill,” she said. And the owners want to promote that atmosphere at the brewery, encouraging patrons to bring their children and (leashed) pets, and hang out in a 1940 stone lodge that houses the tasting rooms and on its expansive patios. Bruce Zurschmeide and his brother-in-law Denny Hammer have been busy in the brew shed. They’ve been working with a small brewing system that ferments a half-barrel at a time. Even with the brewery open only on weekends, keeping the taps flowing has been a challenge. That will change soon when the commercial 10-barrel system that arrived last month from China will come online. Their early recipes are earning good reviews. Last weekend three flavors were on tap: Work, a session IPA; Straw, a golden ale; and Tart 31, an ale made with sour cherries grown on the farm. They’ve also developed Ogden, a Virginia pale ale; Scott, a brown ale; and Boots Off, an IPA with 6.5 percent alcohol by volume. However, as those familiar with Bluemont Winery can attest, no matter how great the quality of Dirt Farm’s beer, the brewery’s breathtaking views will be the high point of any visit. n

Catoctin Elementary Assistant Principal Benjamin Chiet speeds down the paint-covered slip and slide to celebrate the end of the school year and the students’ efforts to raise $3,625 through General Mills’ Box Tops for Education program.

ith hundreds of students watching, Catoctin Elementary School Assistant Principal Benjamin Chiet, donned in business attire, announced over a microphone that he was nervous to go down a slip and slide covered in multi-colored paint. “Do it, do it!” the students screamed on Monday afternoon. By the time Chiet flew down the wet tarp for the fifth time he was covered head to toe in paint, and the students roared in approval. Chiet took part in the year-end festivity after Catoctin Elementary raised $3,625 through General Mills’ Box Tops for Education program. Each box top gathered from General Mills products equals a 10-cent donation for the school, and the school accumulated 36,255 of them. “That’s a sign of how responsible you guys are,” Chiet told the students. Out of 85 schools within 10 miles, Catoctin Elementary raised the second-highest amount of money through the program, just behind Mill Run Elementary School in Ashburn. Out of 2,318 schools in the state, Catoctin was ranked 27th. n

School Board OKs $2.2M More To Cover Broad Run Renovations


Danielle Nadler


s promised, Broad Run High School’s extensive renovation project will be done in full, and school leaders will divert money from the operations budget to make it happen. The Loudoun County School Board gave the green light June 9 to use $2.2 million in FY15 year-end fund balance to help bridge the gap between the $26.47 million budgeted for the project and the actual cost. Members of the Broad Run school community feared the 46-year-old building’s renovation project would be scaled down after initial bids came in several million dollars over budget. School administrators re-bid a trimmed-down version of the proj-

ect—without some of the interior work and improvements to the auditorium—and, last month, awarded the contract to Gaithersburg, MDbased Henley Construction for $18.9 million. The additional $2.2 million will come from unallocated funds expected to be left over when the current fiscal year ends June 30. That money will cover the cost of interior finishes and auditorium renovation, according to Director of Construction Services Gary VanAlstyne. “This motion does allow us to move forward with the full scope of the project,” School Board Chairman Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) said. “We’re just doing it in creative ways to be able to afford it.” Construction is slated to take place while students are out of school this summer and next summer and wrap up in August 2016. n

Charter School To Retain Management Of Principals, School Board Rules AT (Sterling), who was not present at the work session, has said she supports the staff’s recommendation because it would ensure that a non-school division employee is not overseeing division employees and students. “We saw some critical things missed at Middleburg this year, and to ensure that that principal is accountable and that school as a whole is accountable that principal must report as a Loudoun County public employee,” she said during the June 9 regular board meeting. The School Board also took straw votes on other changes to the charter school’s three-year contract, most of which were initiated by the school’s board of directors. School Board members agreed to shift the responsibility for English Language Learner services to the school division with the cost funded by the charter school, and to initiate a regional hub transportation model paid for by LCPS from per pupil assessment installments. The revised contract, which will likely be approved at the board’s June 23 meeting, will

serve as a blueprint for the proposed Hillsboro Charter Academy and any future Loudoun County charter schools. The full board was presented with the 226page application for Hillsboro Charter Academy Tuesday, after a committee of the board worked months with the applicants to fine-tune their proposal. A public hearing on the charter application is planned for Tuesday, June 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the School Administration Building, 21000 Education Court in Ashburn. Interested speakers are encouraged to sign up by 4 p.m. that day by calling 571-252-1020. The board is slated to vote on whether to approve the application that evening. If approved, Hillsboro Charter Academy will open in August of 2016 as a kindergarten through fifth grade school with an emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). Any Loudoun County student can apply, and enrollment will be chosen through a lottery system. n

With no discussion, the Loudoun County School Board unanimously passed by the name Mathias Giordano Middle School last week to name MS-9 after former Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates John F. Ryan. John F. Ryan Middle School was the name recommended by a community committee for the Brambleton-area school. Ryan was born and raised in Loudoun County and

served 11 terms in the House. But several folks have come to School Board meetings over the past few weeks to urge board members to name the school after Mathias Giordano, a Loudoun student who died of bone cancer Dec. 7 at the age of 13. Mathias’ mother was among those who asked that the school be named after her son, whom she said made a significant impact on the greater Loudoun community. His love for learning never waned, even as he underwent intense treatments, she said. “He maintained honors classes through-

he Loudoun County School Board reaffirmed its support for the traditional charter school model last week. In a unanimous straw vote of seven members present at a June 11 work session, the board agreed that Middleburg Community Charter School’s principal should serve as an employee of the school’s board of directors, not of Loudoun County Public Schools. That goes against school division senior staff’s recommendation to require that the principal be an employee of the division, a suggestion made after a rough first year with the county’s first charter school. Its first principal, a Canadian citizen, was denied a teaching license in Virginia and later denied re-entry into the United States. The school also was accused by parents of not adequately providing services to students learning English.

Tim Flynn, director of Instructional Services who was the go-to staff member to handle many of the Middleburg charter school’s mishaps, said the administration team recommended that charter principals serve as division employees because it allows the school system to “ensure the school is in compliance.” That’s how the only other elementary charter school in Virginia operates. The principal of Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts serves as an employee of Richmond Public Schools, according to that school division’s Public Information Office. However, School Board Chairman Eric Hornberger (Ashburn) said during the special meeting held on the matter that requiring the principal to report to the school division administration eliminates the flexibility that makes the charter school model unique. “What differentiates a charter school is essentially its management,” he said. Most other board members agreed. School Board member Brenda Sheridan

He graduated a year early and will soon start a mechanical engineering program at Utah State. “Today is the seal on the whole package of high school,” he said. “It’s like the end of one journey and the start of a new one, and I’m really excited about that.” For many friends and family cheering on their graduates from the bleachers, the day was bittersweet.

n Sam Plank’s final appearance as the Bulldogs’ head coach, David Mocabee pitched a complete game, while Michael Kuzbel went 2 for 3 with three RBIs and a stolen base at Robinson High School. Mocabee also doubled and drove in two runs, while Eli Quiceno went 3 for 3 as Stone Bridge (23-5) captured its first state title in baseball. Plank, who started the Stone Bridge program, is leaving after 15 seasons to take the same position at Riverside High School, which will open this fall in Lansdowne. The Bulldogs broke the game open with five runs on three hits in the sixth, including a two-run single by Kuzbel, a steal of home by Tanner Karafa and an RBI groundout by Josh Greenberg. Stone Bridge had 12 hits for the game.



t Lake Braddock High School, Stone Bridge senior goalie Logan Broadbent notched 15 saves to help the Bulldogs secure the first state lacrosse title in school history. The Bulldogs (19-1) finished the season on a 14-game winning streak. Stone Bridge got off to a fast start, led by Cade Groton, who scored the Bulldogs’ first three goals. Groton finished with a team-high four goals and set up Colin Jachimowski with a spectacular pass for the eventual game-winning tally. With the game tied 3-3 early in the second quarter, the Bulldogs scored four consecutive goals, including one by Groton with 1:23 remaining to take a 7-3 lead. But Atlee (17-2) scored the first three goals of the third quarter to move within one at 7-6. At that point, Stone Bridge head coach Scott Mitchell said he was content to rely on the Bulldogs’ standout defense to keep them in Submitted the lead.

Stone Bridge defeated Atlee 10-9 Saturday in the 5A final to win its first boys lacrosse state title in school history.

t Lake Braddock High School, scoring three goals in the first five minutes proved to be a major factor as the Bulldogs led for the entire game to win their first-ever state title. After winning the opening draw, Stone Bridge (12-7) worked the ball around patiently until Kendall Fitzgerald scored her first of five goals on the day. Potomac Falls (14-5) did battle back, pulling within two goals three times before halftime, but would get no closer through the first half and most of the second. Stone Bridge led 7-4 at the intermission. Fitzgerald gave the Bulldogs their first five-goal lead with her fourth on the afternoon, less than two minutes into the second half. Their lead dwindled to three, went back to four, and again to three in a frantic two-minute, three-second stretch.

The title was Broad Run’s sixth overall as the Spartans won Group AA championships in 2001 and from 2008 through 2011. Senior Sara Deutsch, who normally plays a defensive midfield role for the Spartans, moved to the defensive backline to join her sisters, sophomore twins Anna and Leah Deutsch, and freshman Jessi Arens after senior Lexi Taylor suffered a knee injury in the fourth minute. That group combined to keep Stone Bridge freshman Amy Thompson (team-leading 19 goals this season) from scoring and kept the Bulldogs (16-5-3) offense off balance. Sara Deutsch, along with sophomores Kara Kimberl and Emma Kerns, scored Broad Run’s goals.

Lovettsville painter and printmaker Jill Evans-Kavaldjian is one of 63 artists opening their workspaces as part of the Western Loudoun Artist Studio Tour.


Jill Evans-Kavaldjian:

Celebrating Nature’s Bounty At Garden Corner Jan Mercker


ill Evans-Kavaldjian has a passion for the fruits of the earth and appreciation of the charm of everyday objects. They populate her luminous still-life paintings and lighthearted prints. Evans-Kavaldjian opens her studio, At Garden Corner, in the tiny village of Morrisonville south of Lovettsville to the public June 20 and 21 as part of the 10th annual Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour. Evans-Kavaldjian, her husband, Haig, and their daughters, Aislin and Nora, now in their 20s, have been fixtures in Lovettsville for nearly two decades. Evans-Kavaldjian grew up in Falls Church and studied painting and printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. She got her first graphic design job in Arlington in

the late 1980s doing paste-up page layout work for a news analysis consultancy. In the course of her graphic design work, she began doing impromptu editing for the company and was later hired as a news analyst and writer before moving on to a position as editor and graphic designer for Arlington County’s senior adult newsletter. Evans-Kavaldjian, Haig and their young daughters moved to Lovettsville in 1997 where they bought a fixer-upper on the town’s main street, with Evans-Kavaldjian commuting and telecommuting to her job in Arlington. But she decided to shift gears in the early 2000s; she earned a teaching certificate from Shepherd University and took a job as a preschool teacher at Lovettsville Community Center, where she implemented an arts-and-nature-based curriculum. Evans-Kavaldjian then was hired to run the Bluemont Concert Series’ Artists-InEducation program, where she was in charge

of helping the nonprofit bring arts programs to local schools. But as a working mother of young children, Evans-Kavaldjian put her art on the back burner in the ’90s. “When my kids were little, there wasn’t a lot of art activity. Just a few pieces a year. I’ll never forget: I was working on a drawing and one of my kids found it, and I went to pull it out and it was drawn all over,” she said with a laugh. By the early 2000s, though, as her girls started school, she began ramping up her own work. The timing coincided with the family’s move to Morrisonville, a few miles outside Lovettsville. Home to a number of other visual artists, the village was a perfect fit, allowing the family to remain part of the broader Lovettsville community but also to have more space. The property included a garage that Evans-Kavaldjian turned into a dedicated studio.

The move also brought Evans-Kavaldjian closer to Potomac Vegetable Farms in Wheatland, run by her friend Ellen Polishuk. A decade ago, Polishuk often found herself short-staffed in the early part of the season before college student employees returned for the summer. Evans-Kavaldjian began helping Polishuk with planting and transplanting vegetables and also encouraged her friend to open a farm stand on Rt. 287 (PVF was already operating a popular stand in Fairfax County). Evans-Kavaldjian still takes a shift at the stand when needed. That farm—and her own abundant Continued on Page 36

Studio Tour Marks 10th Anniversary Margaret Morton


he Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour celebrates its 10th anniversary this weekend. The June 20-21 self-guided tour will feature 63 artists—a far cry from the 25 participants who inaugurated the event a decade ago as a better way to connect artists with people. Ten years later, that goal of the studio tour planning committee remains unchanged: To introduce local and regional art lovers to the wealth of artistic talent located in western Loudoun. According to Amy Manson, the chairwoman of the WLAST Planning

Contributed by WLAST

Committee, visitors can expect a weekend of inspiration and one-on-one interaction with the artists. To mark the 10th anniversary, WLAST will feature a few special events, including a partnership between artists and area businesses in a public art project based on the tour’s now-iconic symbol of the human hand. The colorful hand sculptures, decorated by tour artists and volunteers, will be on display at various locations around the county. “There’s been tremendous community and business support this year. We have many sponsors, and Visit Loudoun has been a tremendous help,” Manson said. The committee has changed some

of its promotion of the event, including “educating people about how to take the tour,” she said. Organizers also connected artists with peers in their particular area: “Sort of, ‘Here are your neighboring artists,’” Manson said. The anniversary celebration is expected to draw thousands of visitors to view the work of artists at 35 sites dotted around western Loudoun. During the past decade, the event has drawn visitors from 70 different communities and 11 states. A particular draw for the public is being able to talk to artists in the studios where they work. n

Grammy Winner Shelby Lynne Plays Tally Ho On Friday


rammy-winning singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne brings her expressive voice and altcountry style to the Tally Ho Theatre on Friday, June 19. Lynne is known for her 1999 album, “I Am Shelby Lynne,” which earned her a Best New Artist Grammy in 2001. Her song “Dreamsome” from that album was featured in the film “Bridget Jones’s Diary.” Since then, she has released a Dusty Springfield tribute album, a Christmas album and a number of other records but failed to replicate the success of her breakthrough. However, her country/soul-influenced 13th album, “I Can’t Imagine,” released last month on Rounder Records, is garnering positive reviews from national critics and may represent a resurgence for the 46-year-old artist. Tickets for the fully seated show are $30 in advance, $35 day of show. Doors open at 8 p.m. For more information, go to

garden—have been a rich source of inspiration for the painter, who has an eye for the vibrant colors of fruits and vegetables. At this weekend’s Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour, she’ll showcase paintings of cherry tomatoes and yellow squash inspired by a shift at the farm stand, as well as a charming farm ABC series, focusing on various aspects of farm life including vegetables, buildings, equipment and pollinators. Like the iconic post-impressionist Paul Cezanne, she’s drawn to the geometric, almost abstract elements of the still life. “When I was in school, my paintings were rather abstract, and I think they still have some of that quality: the shapes and the light and the shadows. They’re almost geometric,” she said. “I’m drawn to fruits and vegetables. … It’s kind of static, but there’s a lot going on if you pay attention.” The act of painting can be meditative for Evans-Kavaldjian and requires a dedicated chunk of time. “I’m a very slow painter, a very contemplative painter,” she said. “It’s hard to get to that

“I’m a very slow painter, a very contemplative painter. It’s hard to get to that space, though, and I have to have a lot of time because I need to feel like there’s no pressure on me, or I can’t get into the zone.” Jill Evans-Kavaldjian

space, though, and I have to have a lot of time because I need to feel like there’s no pressure on me, or I can’t get into the zone.” And while her paintings are painstakingly crafted, when Evans-Kavaldjian is in a lighter mood or busy with work or family obligations, she turns to printmaking. Printmaking “is more like an extension of my graphic design work. I can plot them and plan them and draw them out bit by bit

and then carve the block,” she said. “It can be compartmentalized into different tasks: the planning, the carving, the printing and the framing.” Her paintings and prints appeal to different visitors for different reasons. “There’s definitely a sense of humor” in the prints, she said. “They’re more hip and modern and more fun.” Evans-Kavaldjian participated in the second edition of WLAST as a visitor in 2006, and applied to exhibit the following year. She’s been welcoming visitors to her studio ever since. She will host the tour this year with a fellow artist, ceramicist Amy Manson, as a coexhibitor in her studio. And while her own work is a big part of her life, Evans-Kavaldjian also has made promoting other Loudoun artists a focus. Since 2012, she has been director of the Round Hill Arts Center, located near the Hill High Country Store, west of the town. She oversees the nonprofit’s growing education program, which includes classes in the visual and performing arts for adults and children. And last year, she became president of the Loudoun Arts Council. “I’m a great supporter of the arts, and the thread that’s winding through all of my different jobs and careers is that,” she said. n Jill Evans-Kavaldjian will open her studio for the Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour June 20 and 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with ceramicist Amy Manson. Evans-Kavaldjian and Manson will do collaborative, interactive demos at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. both days. The studio is at 38615 Morrisonville Road.

Unplug A Bit


he graduating class of 2015 not only is Loudoun’s largest, but also among the first to grow up entirely in the Internet age.

Remember, when most of today’s seniors were

born, America Online was just moving its opera-

tions to Ashburn, and mailboxes were being filled with CDs that would allow computers to access the information superhighway (at all the speed a 9600-baud modem would permit.) It’s likely that their parents didn’t yet have personal email addresses or carry cellphones.

Today’s Internet does way more than just delivering that once-

cool “you’ve got mail” alert. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope, selfie-sticks and scores of other innovations have all occurred as the graduates moved from kindergarten to high school.

Adding to the sage advice heard during this week’s graduation

ceremonies, we offer this: Yes, work hard and study hard, but also take time to unplug from time to time.

Also, your parents are glad they didn’t take photos of every-

thing they did at your age; think about that before posting your life to time’s fastest growing history archive.

Congratulations, and good luck to all.

e have all heard the term, “Greatest Generation,” which describes those Americans who fought for freedom 70-plus years ago and won. My dad was one of those men. He was wounded in France while carrying another wounded soldier to safety. My dad’s arms froze below the elbow during that harsh blizzard in the Bulge mountains, and was told both arms would have to be amputated if he wanted to live. He told the doctors he would rather die. He survived and so did his hands and arms, although for many years he applied thick lotion to his hands every night.

Next Week’s Question: How will you spend your summer?

I try not to think about this upcoming Father’s Day. It will be the first one in my life without my dad. He suffered a massive stroke and, after his initial treatment in Inova Loudoun Hospital, he was transferred to the VA hospital in Martinsburg. WV. He went there for years and thought highly of that facility. During the past two weeks of my dad’s life, I drove to Martinsburg every day. The long-term care unit has bright, airy common rooms and a large glass aviary containing nesting pairs of African finches, and along one wall is a huge freshwater aquarium, donated and maintained by members of a veteran’s motorcycle club. A courtyard has a koi pond with water lilies that were just coming into bloom, back in late April. When my dad died, I was halfway to Martinsburg to visit him and a Continued on Next Page

I feel we are being exposed to low-wage workers for some type of organization collecting benefits for hiring exchange students.


OPINION O pinio n

Dear Editor: I read your article on “Regional Leaders Praise Rt. 28 Work Slated To Help 125,000 Drivers Daily,” and I believe the county and state are still failing at providing any real relief to our communities. Living in Ashburn since 2003, I have seen the county expand at unprecedented levels with no significant work being properly planned and coordinated to address the hemorrhaging of cars on our local roads. While I commend some of the improvements, Rt. 28 going north from I-66 to Rt. 7, especially between the Dulles Toll Road and Waxpool is clogged and an embarrassment for our county and state. The building and zoning within the county, which allows multiple townhouse and singlefamily houses on one acre, is unsustainable and needs to be stopped. Builders have been allowed to recklessly build huge developments with very little support to the infrastructure. Several months ago, I made calls to the governor’s office and VDOT. I learned that VDOT admitted the Waxpool interchange was a failure. During my phone call with a VDOT executive, I also highlighted that the flashing sign has not worked in more than five years.

Dear Editor: Over the past few years, I have become overly concerned with the lifeguards hired for our local pools. My pool in northeast Exeter Leesburg has been hiring outside foreign teenagers, I believe from the Ukraine. Last week, when picking up our pool passes, I noticed one of the lifeguards wearing a shirt that read in large letters “EAT, SLEEP, F…” We informed the pool management, and they were quick to respond and apologize for the incident. Teens being teens is understandable; however the language barrier is of most concern to me. These lifeguards hardly speak any English and understand even less English. When giving an address, they stare with a blank face asking “What” several times. In an emergency situation, when they have to relay to the authorities how will they be able to give a description of the victim when calling 911? (Drowning, Blood Pressure, Do they have a pulse, Type of injury, etc.) Are there no American teenagers willing or able to take these jobs? Back in the day, lifeguard was a prestigious job for not only a teenager but for anyone. The position came with respect and responsibility.

doctor called with the news. They waited until I arrived so I could say my goodbyes and spend some time with him before he was moved from his room. The Veterans Administration has gotten a lot of bad press lately, but from what I saw, the hospital and the staff at Martinsburg deserve nothing but praise. They truly are a class act. The nurses were compassionate, and the doctors were kind. Not a one was condescending or too professional to be human. My dad’s body was covered with an American flag as he was wheeled out of his room, and all staffers present lined the corridor with their hands over their hearts as he passed. We received a card signed by all of them. Each signature had a personal note. I’m 58 years old. I was fortunate to have my dad in my life for so long. I’m glad he was around long enough to see this small farm thrive and our cattle herd making profits. The VA hospitals of America are full of old soldiers. If one of them is your dad, try to spend a nice long visit with him this Sunday. The VA does a lot of good, but the good they do isn’t newsworthy and that’s a shame. Tom Dukes, Purcellville


s a resident of Loudoun County, you are likely aware of Lyme disease or perhaps even know someone with it. More than 300,000 people in the United States contract Lyme disease and children age five to 10 are most at risk. But did you know that Loudoun County has one of the highest incidence rates for Lyme disease in Virginia? In fact, the Virginia Department of Health reports that Loudoun accounted for 25 percent of cases in 2011. Because of the prevalence in our region, Loudoun has been extremely active on the local level with this issue. The Board of Supervisors even created a Loudoun Lyme Disease Commission in 2012. In the Virginia General Assembly, I, too, have been fighting for ways to help break the cycle of infection, as well as advocating better identification of the disease and treatment options. One of the newest technologies to fight Lyme disease takes an entirely different route and looks at an environmental answer in the form of vaccinations for mice. Yes, you read that correctly- vaccinations for mice. My first reaction when I heard that was to question why the vaccines target mice and not ticks or deer? I always thought that ticks get infected from deer. However, I learned that while ticks carry Lyme bacteria, they actually catch it from the white-footed mouse, not deer. The ticks merely use the deer for transportation. Therefore, the vaccines will focus on the host animal. I believe this is a promising environmental treatment method and it’s time we put programs like this into action to reduce expo-

sure and spread to humans. Up until now, our focus has been on the identification of Lyme disease and early treatment. I believe we owe it to the families in Loudoun and across the Commonwealth to take the next step and look at prevention programs that could be a game-changer in this fight. Ending Lyme at its source is one of the most promising options we have seen yet. This is why I partnered with Senator Jill Vogel during this past legislative session in Richmond to require Virginia to study this specific issue further. The budget we passed includes language that directs the Secretaries of Agriculture and Forestry and Health and Human Resources to study strategies for “point of disease” transmission prevention programs—such as vaccinations for mice. Their examination will focus on identifying sites for the first implementation, the cost of these programs and potential sources of funding—including grants, local, state and federal funding and private foundations. Recommendations will be made this fall to the General Assembly with programmatic and funding options. It is my hope that these recommendations will include public health proposals focusing on this exciting new field of “point of disease” prevention. Who would ever think that vaccinating mice could help prevent Lyme disease? It’s innovative methods like this that will help us battle Lyme disease in Loudoun County and the rest of Virginia. With summer quickly approaching, I know we will all be outside more than ever and will need to be vigilant about protecting ourselves from Lyme. You have my commitment that I will constantly be looking for creative and innovative strategies that will help us win the fight against Lyme disease. n

The VDOT response was that they did not realize that and that the sign cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Since my call, the sign has been fixed, but little has been done to improve this traffic. I recommended to VDOT that the left turn lane be extended about one mile to the south so that the traffic looking to make the left flyover to Waxpool can get over sooner and reduce the chaotic traffic closer to the interchange. This would alleviate the traffic going north to Rt. 7 with very little cost. Additionally, it would pave the way for the Gloucester extension further up Rt. 28. Lastly, I would like this paper to investigate the zoning and the lack of planning in our county. I have written to our supervisors, but little has been done to address the growth, except the consistent reply of, “This is what was agreed upon over a decade ago, and there is nothing we can change.” We, the people of Loudoun, need to ensure our voices are heard to continue to make our county the best in our great nation.

his is a very professional office with a top notch doctor and staff. Although there are qualified doctors closer to where I live, I have been going to Mountcastle for years because of the quality service I receive. I initially went for veins and some procedures were covered by insurance and others considered cosmetic. The doctor and staff explain everything well and with patience. Amy the RN did my veins and she was so expert that I consulted her about other procedures. She has injected Botox, and other products. The result is always fabulous – no one has ever asked if I have had anything done – just remark how great my skin looks. Amy is an artist with a needle! She has also advised me on skin care products at my request. People usually guess my age at 10 years younger. My skin looks healthy.
