reached an agreement to close the revenue gap in the two-year state budget that took effect July 1. It will mean less money than expected for almost everything except K-12 education. The deal, expected for action by the General Assembly during this week’s special session, reduces state spending by about 3.5 percent and relies mostly on cuts in new spending and money from the state’s Rainy Day Fund. It leaves a $272 million shortfall in the second year that the governor and legislators will need to work through in the session that

begins in January. “This is how we get things done,” said Del. Tag Greason (R-32), a House budget conferee who represents the Ashburn area. “It was a bipartisan approach with the governor, legislators, Republicans and Democrats just sitting down and saying ‘how are we going to solve the problem?” Talks of finding a compromise started among leaders of the two chambers and the governor a month ago, as soon as new state revenue numbers came out last month show-

eanette Irby is expected to be approved as Loudoun County Circuit Court’s newest judge during the General Assembly’s special session this week. Irby, who has served as Leesburg’s town attorney since 2007, was the only candidate on the docket to be interviewed for the position by the Senate Committee for Courts of Justice and the House Judicial Panel Wednesday. Both chambers of the assembly are slated to approve her appointment, along with more than 30 others, by Friday. There have been whispers in the law community that Irby was Loudoun Bar’s and Loudoun’s state delegation’s top pick for the bench seat, held by Judge Thomas D.

rezoning that was designed to get the teams up and running after VIP pulled out of its 2009 stadium deal in the stalled Kincora development. No hearing date has been set for the lawsuit. As recently as April, VIP CEO Bob Farren said stadium construction work was continuing on and off site. At that time he hoped for a change in a county ordinance that would allow his company, and other businesses, to finance taxable bonds through the EDA. Previously, the county only permitted the issuance of tax-exempt bonds. In considering the request, county supervisors this month opted to not permit taxable bonds for businesses, although they did change the law to allow that financing tool for projects in which the county government is involved. While working to obtain construction financing, VIP has been hit with judgments sought by lenders and contractors, including one for $3.25 million in relation to a loan made by EagleBank in 2013. n

site of a celebratory stadium groundbreaking in June 2013, but little work followed. In April 2014—when the first crowds of fans were supposed to be settling into their seats to witness the Hounds’ first season—the developers declared the investment group to be in default of the lease terms and set a July 25 deadline to terminate the deal. “This action is [the] Landlord’s attempt to revive the public’s dream of bringing professional baseball and soccer to Loudoun County,” the lawsuit states. One Loudoun’s developers are confident that sports teams would be attracted to the Loudoun market and that a stadium would be a successful community venture; however, they’ve been handcuffed in pursuing those options because VIP continues to claim to be advancing with the project. In addition to seeking to a court order terminating the lease agreement, the lawsuit seeks $500,000 in damages. The lawsuit states the developers spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to complete last year’s fast-track

The action comes after the investment group promising to bring Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and North American Soccer League teams to the county shuttered its operational office in Sterling and after the Board of Supervisors rejected VIP’s proposal to allow private companies to float taxable bonds through the county’s Economic Development Authority as a way to lock down financing for construction of the 5,500-seat stadium. One Loudoun Holdings LLC last month filed a civil lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgment that VIP defaulted on the requirements of its lease for 11 acres of the 358-acre mixeduse development.

he Loudoun Board of Supervisors moved quickly Wednesday to enact a new ordinance designed to hold more county government representatives criminally responsible for misusing county assets. Only Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling), the subject of the grand jury probe that originally identified the need for the legislation, voted against it. The new ordinance makes clear that parttime government employees, officers and agents can be charged with a class one misdemeanor if suspected of using public assets for private or public purposes unrelated to their government duties. Previously, state law allowed only fulltime government employees to face prosecution. The issue came to light after a special grand jury was empaneled to investigate allegations that Delgaudio comingled the operations and personnel in his county-funded constituent support office with those of the national

conservative lobbying organization he leads, the Public Advocate of the United States. After months of investigation, the grand jury did not issue any indictments in the case. However, it did issue a report highlighting several concerns, including that state law did not allow Loudoun supervisors, who are classified as holding parttime positions, to face criminal charges for misusing their office resources. Following the report, a board majority formally censured Delgaudio and took control of his office budget. The board also requested that the General Assembly close the loophole preventing part-time workers from facing prosecution. Del. Randy Minchew (R-10) carried that bill, which ultimately resulted in new authority for localities to voluntarily impose such a safeguard. The law took effect July 1 and the Loudoun board initiated the local ordinance 10 days later. The ordinance was adopted Wednesday following a public hearing, during which there were no speakers. Most supervisors called the action an important step to protect the public trust.

Delgaudio, however, strongly objected. He pointed out that, in addition to the grand jury failing to find criminal wrongdoing, the subsequent Circuit Court recall petition based on claims that he misused his office failed to be supported by evidence and was dismissed. He said the new law would put residents who volunteer their service with the county’s many advisory boards and commissions at unnecessary risk. “All of you have appointed honest people,” he said. Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) said the new law simply puts in place protections most residents already believe to be in force. “This is pretty commonsense stuff,” he said. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) said the action addresses “a flaw in the law.” However, he said even the new law is flawed because it is not being mandated for localities statewide and because state lawmakers included a provision stating it would not be applicable to the General Assembly. n

A Loudoun grand jury last week indicted a 47-year-old Sterling man on charges of manslaughter and driving under the influence after he allegedly hit and killed a pedestrian Aug. 15. According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Pierpaolo Verrone was driving a Ford Explorer northbound on Cascades Parkway when he struck 53-year-old Jeffrey A. Carter of Sterling, who was attempting to cross the road just south of Middlefield Drive. Carter was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital, where he died. A three-day trial is set to begin March 26, 2015. Verrone faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison on the felony charge.

A former youth basketball coach was sentenced to 15 years in prison last week after pleading no contest to charges that he had a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old player on a team in Sterling. Marlow Mokassa Afshartous, who also is known as Marlow Talley, was convicted of one count of sodomy and one count of object sexual penetration. Afshartous, 40, formerly coached a number of basketball teams in the region, including a team at the Claude Moore Recreation Center. The charges were filed after the victim disclosed the 2012 relationship to her mother and a close family friend. Afshartous entered the no contest plea June 5. During the sen tencing hearing before Judge J. Howe Brown, Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Gigi Lawless argued that Afshartous was a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” and that his behavior was unacceptable in civilized society. Lawless asked the court to impose a sentence that would speak for all the “little voices” in the community, sending a message to those in position to supervise children that they would be punished for violating the trust of parents.

“Dentistry with a Gentle Touch.”

Educa t io n

After five months of legal wrangling in Loudoun’s courts, county prosecutors Monday dropped a firearms charge that kept an Ashburn man suspected in three Alexandria killings behind bars for more than six months. Charles Severance, 53, has been held in the Loudoun Adult Detention Center since his arrest in May, following his March 13 arrest in Wheeling, WV, on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He has been transferred to the custody of authorities in Alexandria, where he was indicted last week on three murder charges. Severance’s attorney Edward Ungvarsky repeatedly argued that the Loudoun gun charge was being pursed simply to keep Severance in jail at the request of Alexandria investigators, who until last week had declined to formally identify Severance as a suspect in their murder cases. Severance was denied bond in the case and a trial on the charge was set for a two-day trial beginning Oct. 27. An Alexandria Circuit Court grand jury last week indicted the former Alexandria resident on multiple charges for the February death of Ruthanne Lodato, the November 2013 slaying of Ronald Kirby and the 2003 death of Nancy Dunning. The grand jury indicted Severance on charges of capital murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon for the death of Lodato, a well-known music teacher; capital murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon for the death of Kirby, who served as the transportation director for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments; and first-degree murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony in the death of Dunning, a real-estate agent and wife of the city’s former sheriff.

Brown’s sentence was on the high-end of the state’s sentencing guidelines. “The court is satisfied that the defendant initiated contact with the child based on the evidence presented,” Brown said “The defendant took advantage of the victim in this case and this Court thinks that’s serious and egregious behavior.” In addition to the prison term, Afshartous received an additional 80 years of suspended time. Upon his release, he will be placed on indefinite supervised probation, he is prohibited from any contact with the victim, any unsupervised contact with minors, must successfully complete a sex offender treatment program and will be required to register as a sex offender.

he long-term future of Leesburg’s beach-themed restaurant, MacDowell Brew Kitchen, received a significant boost last Tuesday as the Town Council unanimously approved a rezoning application to allow for outdoor seating, office uses at an adjacent building and commercial use at a nearby parking lot. The vote ends a nearly a yearlong effort

to bring the establishment into compliance with town rules. The proposed changes will result in additional revenue to the town in the form of higher real estate values and increased sales at the restaurant, council members said. Following a public hearing on the application, Councilwoman Kelly Burk made the motion to approve the application and it passed unanimously. “This project has come a long way…One Continued on Next Page

of our main goals is to bring people downtown and we pride ourselves on being businessfriendly,” Burk noted during the hearing. “All previous issues have been resolved, and this is a reflection of the applicant on making this work. This will be a good addition to the town.” MacDowell’s was found to have violated the town’s zoning code in 2012 when the restaurant expanded its outdoor operation onto neighboring lots—including a sliver of townowned land—without zoning or occupancy permits. MacDowell stated he thought it was VDOT’s property, not town land. “I would like to thank all the patrons, number one, because if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be in this situation where I had to do the whole rezoning to continue making our business grow,” MacDowell said. “The town staff, for the most part, has been supportive and very helpful throughout the process.” Last year, the council entered into a lease agreement with the business to use the town’s property and to continue using the area known as the “beach” as long as the owners completed regulatory hurdles required to bring the restau-

rant into compliance. As part of that deal, the restaurant will undergo some renovations inside and out. Masonry walls will be built around the sand area to help control noise and to keep sandfrom shifting onto neighbors’ properties. A functioning bathroom will be added and pedestrian pathways will surround the building and several trees will be planted along the perimeter. An agreement for nighttime patrons to park at 203 Royal St. meets the town’s parking requirements. “We’ll start demolishing sometime next week and then we’ll start construction once we get the permits,” MacDowell noted. He hopes the renovations will wrap up by Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the restaurant’s three-year anniversary. “We’ve grown leaps and bounds, so we’re having to upgrade almost everything. We have enough space outside and inside, so we just need to improve the infrastructure like the bathrooms. We want people to be enjoying the party, not standing in line.” MacDowell also said that the restaurant will be adding 50 more draft lines and a new wood-fired pizza oven to the outdoor area. Five residents spoke at last week’s hearing. Two residents expressed concerns, including the lack of historical preservation, the potential for increased noise and the owners’ history of not following town ordinances. However, Linda Eifert, who lives nearby on Royal Street, said she appreciated the efforts the restaurant has made to address residents’ concerns. Jim Sisley, whose real estate office is nearby on Royal Street, said the brew kitchen is the “best business neighbor I’ve ever known.” Councilman Tom Dunn supported the rezoning, calling it an important step for the town. “We are a part of history today by doing this. This is the natural progression of Leesburg’s history and this is another big step while maintaining our historic integrity.” n

Tower Technology Gets FAA Test At Leesburg Airport

T

he Leesburg Airport is teaming up with SAAB Sensis Corporation to test a new remote airtraffic control system that could result in approval for a permanent FAA air traffic control tower at the town’s airport. The Town Council last week approved an agreement allowing the company and the research arm of the Virginia Department of Aviation to test SAAB’s new system at the airport while it seeks FAA safety certification for the new technology. The project is expected to take place starting in June 2015. For the past year, the town’s Airport Commission has supported the development of an air traffic control tower to better handle increasing flight activity. Leesburg Airport is the second-busiest general aviation airport in Virginia with more than 100,000 takeoffs and landings annually. However, considering it took eight years for a tower to be built at Frederick Airport (MD), Leesburg Airport leaders wanted to find a quicker route. Remote air traffic control towers may in the future be a part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Next-Gen campaign to improve flight control nationwide. The remote air traffic control tower system has been certified for use in Europe and tested in Australia but not in the United States. Leesburg will provide that testing ground. “To get a control tower established is pretty tough, especially with federal sequestration—that makes funding hard,” Airport Manager Scott Coffman said. “So the state put us in touch with SAAB— they were looking for a place to test and get certification of their remote control product in the U.S. They selected Leesburg as a site and will have the FAA people come do their safety and risk analysis of the system to make sure that it’s a safe product that can be used in the United States.” The decision to test at Leesburg Airport also made sense from SAAB’s standpoint. “It’s a busy general aviation airport and it doesn’t currently have a air traffic control tower, but it does have a really good mix of different aircraft types flying in and out,” SAAB media relations manager Rob Conrad explained. “They have a flight-training operation and it’s in a complex airspace near Dulles, so it’s a good test situation for the project.” The only cost to the town during the three-month testing period will be two phone lines and electrical power estimated at $2,000. Coffman believes that fee is small considering how much money the town would save using SAAB’s product rather than constructing a traditional traffic tower. “For us, it’s an interesting product,” Coffman said. “Number one, it’s less expensive than a brick and mortar control tower because this is essentially a camera array that’s on an existing building or tower that looks at the airspace around our airport. “It’s much simpler to build a camera array, and the remote part of the tower means that the air

traffic controller is in a remote location. They don’t have to be looking out a window. Their product is designed so they could be essentially anywhere. It’s kind of cool.” Coffman thinks that having a permanent air traffic tower would help attract business jet operators as well as improve flight safety and offer more efficient communication to pilots. Even with increasing air traffic, Leesburg residents shouldn’t be worried about the changes, he said. “As far as the residents of Leesburg, they’re not going to hear any additional noise or anything like that. In fact, a control tower could help with keeping pilots on certain paths as they come into the airport,” Coffman said.

he Board of Supervisors’ finance committee is recommending that planning for the FY16 county budget be based on holding the real estate tax rate level next year. While that approach would mean a tax bill increase for most property owners, it still leaves an $81.8 million budget shortfall based on preliminary revenue estimates and program need projections. At the current $1.155 real estate tax rate, preliminary estimates show revenue increases of only $53.4 million next fiscal year. That would just cover the $53.1 million in additional funding school system leaders think they will need next year to open another new school and welcome 1,400 additional students. Fiscal planners also have identified a need for $50 million more to cover construction and debt service commitments. County Administrator Tim Hemstreet has identified about $32 million in additional funding that will be needed on the non-school side of the budget, including raises for county employees. Supervisors during last week’s committee meeting acknowledged the budget numbers are preliminary, and typically get better rather than worse before the final spending plan is adopted. “So this is the annual ‘the sky is falling’ finance committee meeting,” Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) quipped. County CFO Ben Mays said this year’s fiscal planning environment likely will be more challenging compared with last year, when the county experienced a “perfect storm of good news” related to stronger than expected local and state revenues. “I don’t feel there is much upside potential this year as there was last fall,” he said. “We’re just not at the same rate of growth that we were last year.” Supervisors were able to lower the real estate tax rate last year, but it will be more difficult to repeat that act in FY16 as the growth in real estate values slows to 6.1 percent this year—down from 8.3 percent in 2013. The forecasted FY16 equalized real estate tax rate—the rate at which tax bills theoretically would be held flat in the face of increasing assessments—is $1.13 and would leave a projected $99 million shortfall.

Wawa is finding a bumpy road as it prepares its entry into Loudoun’s convenience store market. The Board of Supervisors is reviewing an application by the Pennsylvania-based chain to build a store and gas station on 3 acres at the northwest corner of the Old Ox Road/Oak Grove Road intersection near Loudoun’s eastern boundary. Wawa has developed more than 645 stores in the Mid-Atlantic region, including 67 in Virginia. Company representatives said each store creates 40 to 60 jobs and projected annual tax revenues of more than $170,000 from the Sterling operation. This would be the company’s first Loudoun location. The county’s planning staff is recommending denial of the project, pointing out that the General Plan envisions the development of office and flex-industrial uses in the Rt. 28 and Rt. 606 corridors. The Planning Commission this summer voted 5-3-1 to recommend approval of the project. During the supervisors’ Sept. 10 public hearing several area business owners opposed the application citing concerns about traffic safety and competition with local family owned operations. Questions also were raised about whether the requested use was adequately advertised, because the published notice described the store as an “automobile service station.” While supervisors expressed confidence that local businesses could survive the competition, several asked for more information about whether the operation meets the criteria to be classified as an automobile service station. County staff members said a change in the Zoning Ordinance definition adopted in April allows the Wawa to be viewed as a service station use. Attorney Woodrow W. Turner, who is representing the Foster family that operates businesses nearby, is challenging that position, citing it as a “fatal flaw” for the applications. He said the store is not a service station, which by the county’s definition principally sells gasoline and/or oil, grease, batteries, tires and automobile accessories. Instead, the Wawa would operate as a convenience food store. “A convenience store is a high-intensity Continued on Next Page

Historic Arcola School Going On The Market?

T

he future of the former Arcola School remains in doubt as the Board of Supervisors prepares to solicit private sector proposals to use, or potentially purchase, the property. The Board of Supervisors’ finance committee is recommending that course as an alternative to having the county government invest $7 million-$13 million to renovate the structure and return it to public use. The Arcola School, located on Gum Spring Road, was built in 1939 by the Public Works Administration and was the first Loudoun school to have separate classrooms for each grade. More recently, the building served as the area’s community center but was closed in 2006 when the Dulles South Multipurpose Center opened in

Through the work of the volunteers, the building earned statewide recognition as an endangered historic site and last year was listed on the national and state registers of historic places. In July, a delegation of Arcola School supporters urged supervisors to reopen community center operations on the site, to provide childcare and adult daycare services. During last Tuesday’s finance committee meeting, supervisors reviewed a staff report that identified several potential uses for the property, including a park, teen center, adult day center, elementary school or parks

Friends of the Arcola Community Center is challenging the county’s cost estimates and urging supervisors not to allow the destruction of one of Loudoun’s few New Deal Public Works Administration projects. The group noted the county’s cost estimates have increased from $1.9 million to $13 million over the past decade. To get a more accurate assessment of the options for adaptive reuse of the building, supporters advocate using $25,000 from an Arcola Center proffer to hire an independent consultant to conduct a feasibility study to provide guidance on future capital facility needs and a strategic estimate for rehabilitation including public/private partnerships, grants and rehabilitation tax credits. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) indicated support for that approach during Tuesday’s meeting.

department maintenance facility. What the staff did not identify was any available funding to devote to the project. Committee Chairman Ralph Buona (R-Ashburn) said no funds are programmed for the Arcola property during the term of the county’s six-year Capital Improvements Plan and there is little capacity to add projects. He made the suggestion, ultimately supported by the panel, to solicit private-sector interest in the property. The full board was expected to consider that recommendation Wednesday. “Do we want to put $13 million of taxpayers’ money into a building that, according to our packet, is in poor condition,” Buona asked. It’s not just funding that is a concern. Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) stressed that nothing should be done with the property until a solution is found for congestion at the nearby Gum Spring Road/Evergreen Mills Road intersection. A traffic study is planned. However, Letourneau agreed with Buona that it made little sense for the county to renovate the school. “The building is too far gone,” he said.

Water Tank Plan Faces Uncertain Future

L

oudoun Water’s embattled plan to build two 1 million gallon water storage tanks along Red Hill Road has cleared a key hurdle, but the future of the project remains in doubt. At the end of a Sept. 10 public hearing that continued past midnight, the Board of Supervisors voted 5-2-1 to ratify a commission permit for the tanks, but referred other required zoning applications to a committee for review over the next few months. The tanks are needed to serve the water authority’s Transition Area pressure zone, where low- and medium-density residential developments are permitted to connect to the county’s central utility system. Loudoun Water

leaders have looked at several location options and are now targeting a 6.5-acre tract south of Red Hill Road and west of Evergreen Mills Road. Residents living near the proposed tank site said their homes are not part of the wave of new development driving the need for the structures and are not served by Loudoun Water’s utility system. Speaker after speaker urged supervisors to deny the tank applications. They want the project moved to a property served by Loudoun Water’s system and pressed for the utility to abandon its plans for elevated tanks in the area. The water tanks would be 189 feet tall and are proposed as waterspheroid designs—with the shape described as a golf ball on top of a tee—rather than the wider Loudoun Water storage tanks seen along Belmont Ridge. Construction of the first tank is scheduled for 2016 and the timing of the second would depend on the pace of development within that pressure zone. Loudoun Water representatives said they considered multiple locations and told supervisors the Red Hill Road location was the only suitable site available to them. Additionally, the use of ground-level or underground water storage tanks would require changes to the overall water system, add costs to customers and reduce service reliability. Supervisor Janet Clarke (R-Blue Ridge) strongly criticized the project, saying the tall tanks at that location did not comply with the county’s comprehensive plan and urged the authority to keep looking for a more suitable site. Last week’s board review was complicated by a statutory deadline that required supervisors to vote on whether to ratify the Planning Commission’s July 15 approval of the commission permit for the project. Under state law, the Board of Supervisors has 60 days to vote to ratify or reject the commission’s action. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) lamented the requirement to act so quickly—“unfortunately, the timing just really sucks”—and even asked state Sen. Dick Black (R-13), who spoke in support of the project’s opponents, to help amend the state law to increase the review time. Clarke’s motion to reject the commission permit—an action that effectively would have killed the applications—failed on a 3-5-1 vote. Supervisors Geary Higgins (R-Catoctin) and Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) also voted for denial and Supervisor Ken Reid (R-Leesburg) was absent for the end of the meeting. York then made a motion to ratify the commission permit and to send the project’s special exception application to the board’s Transportation/Land Use Committee for detailed review. York said the board could still deny the tank project, which is expected to face a final vote in December. The committee is expected to take up the issue at its Oct. 17 meeting. n

My goal will be to maintain all that he has completed and support future efforts to help the Loudoun Cares Board of Directors assemble new staffing leadership.” Johnston will be leaving the organization operationally in very good shape, according to Montgomery, and she noted Owen has worked closely with Loudoun Cares, knows the territory well and will handle the transition period very ably. Monday, Johnston said he plans to take some time “to figure out what I want to do next.” He said the Loudoun Cares board of directors had been understanding regarding his decision. “I’ve worked with some of them for so long, and they understand that I felt I needed to do something else,” he said. That decision has been percolating in his mind for the past couple of months, Johnston said, adding that starting over should be beneficial for him and the organization. “I get to sit back and look at a variety of things before I decide what to do and it’s a good time now for new leadership.” He described his time at Loudoun Cares as “an incredible ride.” Johnston’s last day with the nonprofit will be Sept. 26, after which he plans to go camping in Wyoming. n

“Andy Johnston has been and is an unmatched nonprofit leader in his dedication to serving individuals and the entire Loudoun County nonprofit community,”

Wine, Walk, & Wag 2014

Bu s in e s s

he Loudoun human services world was surprised Monday morning by the announcement that longtime Loudoun nonprofit leader Andy Johnston will step down as Loudoun Cares’ executive director effective at the end of the month. After leading the organization for 11 years, Johnston said he is leaving to explore new opportunities but remains committed to assisting Loudoun Cares as needed on a volunteer basis. The accolades began rolling in soon after the announcement. “Andy Johnston has been and is an unmatched nonprofit leader in his dedication to serving individuals and the entire Loudoun County nonprofit community,” Susan Snyder, chair of Loudoun Cares board of directors, stated. “He is a selfless advocate, partner, collaborator, fundraiser and, more importantly, a role model for advocacy.” Jennifer Montgomery, until recently a colleague of Johnston’s at Loudoun Cares before she was hired as the new executive director of Loudoun Interfaith Relief, called him her “professional mentor,” even before she came to work for him. “He taught me so much about collaboration and inclusiveness, and he’ll take that with him,” Montgomery said. She said she was excited for Johnston. Loudoun Cares, she said, was not his only role. “He created something much bigger and very important,” she said, adding he could take that mentoring and counseling role anywhere. Indeed Johnston became so good at giving others worthwhile advice, Montgomery said, “I joked about it and said we should call it Loudoun Cares Consulting.” Loudoun Cares was started in 2003 to strengthen and support local nonprofit organizations. During Johnston’s tenure, he spearheaded the initiative for the Loudoun Cares Nonprofit Center, a facility at 8 South St. SW in Leesburg, which houses six nonprofits: All Ages Read Together, American Red Cross, Brain Injury Services, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health, Legal Services of Northern Virginia and the Loudoun Cares administrative offices. The idea behind the center was to provide a one-stop referral service which could easily be accessed by those in need of such services and who could find a wide variety of resources under one roof. Once renovation of the building is completed, for which Johnston was working to raise $2 million, it will provide office space for at least a dozen health and human services

nonprofits, giving them stability against the fluctuation of the commercial real estate market and an opportunity to generate efficiencies and synergies by working under one roof. Amy Owen, executive director of the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties (formerly Piedmont Community Foundation), will serve as part-time interim executive director. Of her appointment, Owen stated: “It’ll be impossible to fill Andy’s shoes… Andy is fantastically respected, and rightfully known as the ‘go to’ source for all things philan-

en. Mark Warner stopped by his Sterling campaign office Saturday afternoon to rally volunteers as they make the final push toward Election Day. Joining 10th District congressional candidate John Foust for the event, Warner urged volunteers to continue to reach out to voters in the final 50 days of the campaign and delivered a stump speech that encouraged the public to not accept failure on Capitol Hill.

Warner’s remarks covered education, veterans’ affairs, health care reform, infrastructure investment and the national debt and stressed the need for bipartisan approaches while acknowledging the country’s overwhelming frustration with Washington. He encouraged his audience not to lose hope. “If you’re done with everyone and you turn off the TV, all you do is turn our country over to the extremes and that’s not where things are going to get fixed,” Warner said. “When we lose that notion that we can’t

judgeship interviews this week. As of Tuesday, this newspaper’s deadline, a deal reached by state legislators and the governor in light of a $2.4 billion state revenue shortfall delayed the start of any new judges until Dec. 1 to save $3.2 million. But Del. Randy Minchew (R-10), who sits on the House Courts of Justice Judicial Panel, said he and state Sen. Jennifer Wexton (D-33) were working to secure funding to get Loudoun’s bench filled immediately. “I am working the phones today and will be working in person tomorrow to try to resolve it,” he said Tuesday. At first, Irby’s appointment was expected to come before the General Assembly reconvened its regular session in June, but judgeship appointments took a backseat to the fight over the state budget and Medicaid expansion. Irby, 55, has served as Leesburg’s town attorney through years of major growth and transition in the town. She has been the legal advisor to the town manager and several town departments, and also prosecuted and assisted the defense of all civil matters concerning the town in court. Residing over a courtroom as a judge has been a dream of Irby’s since she first started practicing law 26 years ago. “You look at judges as the epitome of a legal career where you can take everything you’ve learned and apply it,” she said during a recent interview with Leesburg Today. “I think you have to be mature to be a judge. I think I’m there in my career where I can bring the knowledge that I have in the law and my life experiences, and bring that to the bench.” Irby has done her part to see the law from Continued on Next Page

almost every angle it offers; she has practiced domestic relations law, criminal, general civil and government relations law. “I’ve had a really good opportunity in my career—and it was done deliberately—to learn about different aspects of the law,” she said, sitting in her Leesburg Town Hall office where bookshelves are lined with history and law books. “The law fascinates me and it always has fascinated me, from constitutional law all the way down to how the laws are applied locally.” Shortly after she graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1988, Irby started a solo law practice in Michigan that focused on domestic relations law and handled courtappointed misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. In 1995, she moved to Fauquier County, where she worked on domestic relations, civil and criminal cases as an associate with Walker Jones. Also with that firm, she represented the Fauquier County Department of Social Services in abuse, neglect and removal cases. She then worked as a law clerk to Judges William Shore Robertson and Jeffrey W. Parker in the Fauquier County Circuit Court, before serving as the Fauquier assistant county attorney. Irby takes the bench following Judge Horne, who was the commonwealth’s longestserving Circuit Court judge before he faced mandatory retirement on his 70th birthday. Irby did not mince words about following a widely respected judge. “I’ve always admired the time and attention and care that Judge Horne has taken with respect to those who are in his court room,” she said. She called Horne a mentor. Irby worked alongside him to establish the Loudoun County

Bar Association’s Law Camp and served as a jurist in his courtroom where he’s known for taking the time to listen to each side of a case. “I don’t think anyone has ever left his courtroom thinking I haven’t been heard, and to me that’s such a great quality of a judge,” she said. “Because that’s what folks want, they want to know they’ve been heard, and he just displays such a good temperament with respect to that quality.” At a time when judges face criticism placing their own personal views over the law, Irby maintains a personal truth: “There is always another side to the story.” Her experience working as a criminal defender taught her “you may not agree with your client yet they may have a valid legal position… I learned it’s not as cut and dried as you think, and it really helped me to develop empathy and to really search for the truth.” The Virginia Women Attorneys Association highly recommended Irby for Loudoun’s vacant judgeship position. In a letter of recommendation to state Sen. Thomas K. Norment, chair of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, and David T. Albo, chair of the House Courts of Justice Committee, the association lauded her legal career as a pattern of fairness. “She has shown decisiveness, open-mindedness, patience and understanding,” the letter stated. Irby has four children, ages 20 through 30. Her oldest son Steve Huffman, is the cofounder of Reddit and Hipmunk travel website; her daughter Amanda works in education public policy; Creston is a deputy sheriff in Goochland County; and Sterling is a professional ballroom dancer. She and her husband of 25 years Jeff live in Fauquier County and plan to move to Loudoun. n

The Beer Joint: A Town Favorite Gets A New Look

nthony Cavallo and his business partners already have a successful business model at The V, a restaurant and brewery in Ashburn. Now they have introduced a new concept for Leesburg’s Vintage 50 restaurant, which they have operated for the past eight years. The Catoctin Circle establishment is now The Beer Joint, a social eatery that has a slogan of “beer, bourbon, and burgers.” “Leesburg needs this I think,” Cavallo said. “Leesburg has some great restaurants, but in terms of wanting to go out and socialize, you’re stuck with some places you may not want to go because it’s a nightclub or a smoking facility or

something like that. We wanted to create the ultimate social atmosphere.” The Beer Joint, located at 50 Catoctin Circle, just completed a two-month renovation at the start of September that changed the entire scene. A new menu is now in place, a new bar has been finished, servers dressed in German kilts are serving and there’s a whole new atmosphere. “The idea was to take beer to the next level,” Cavallo said. “We wanted to create a social

lounge where everyone can come in and socialize, hang out and not be rushed out or funneled in. You come in and sit down wherever, and you can spend 30 minutes or three hours with us. Our goal is to want you to stay and enjoy yourself. We’ll have live entertainment four times a week, live DJs on the weekend, large tables to sit together and shared menu items. We want you to be part of a community, part of who we are.” It’s not exactly a restaurant, and it’s not just a brewery. The Beer Joint hopes to find

the happy medium between the two to create a comfortable and homey scene. Eight televisions feature the NFL package, although the goal is to not be limited to a sports bar. Brett Kimbrough, who has been Vintage 50’s brewer for the past two years, has the ability to brew 30 to 40 different recipes each year ranging from light beer, such as a cream ale, to darker IPAs and Belgians. Twenty to 25 different bourbons will be imported from around the country, and chef Amy Charney is in charge of creating the many unique burgers and appetizers that The Beer Joint serves. Waitresses serving libations in German kilts should certainly add an unusual aspect to the experience. “We were a little disappointed that after a round of golf we didn’t see a few fräuleins,” customer Quinton Johnson said with a chuckle amongst a group of buddies before the changes were complete. “That should be a fun aspect to this place. And I definitely like the rough-cut tables and new feel of the place, it’s relaxing.” On top of the live music throughout a typical week, The Beer Joint also features several specials for patrons. An uncharacteristically long happy hour runs from 3-8 PM, when there are beer, wine and food specials every day of the week. Cavallo also says that every burger on the menu will be five dollars during happy hour, which is almost half-off for some of the options. “I think that we will have the best happy hour in Leesburg, guaranteed,” Cavallo said. The promoted social atmosphere is something that patron Fred Ravabge is excited about. “My wife and I came here one day just to sit outside,” Ravabge said. “We ended up meeting another couple and talked to them the whole night, and we still hang out with them. We like to go out to a place where we can interact with other people, I don’t want to be shoved into a booth and you don’t meet anybody. This environment is a perfect place to meet new people.” In a world where restaurants and bars are usually defined as one or the other, The Beer Joint hopes to find its niche as a unique social lounge in Leesburg. Customers can create their own experience, whether that’s stopping by for a quick drink or hanging out on a Friday night with a group of friends. “My ideal experience would be to be able to come in, sit down to relax for as long as you want and sample everything,” Cavallo added. “You can get a sampler of eight beers, you can get a sampler of four to six bourbons and you can choose appetizers that pair well with both of those items. We want you to be able to come in the next day and try a whole new combination of items.” n

obert Amireh has opened more than 25 restaurants in Northern Virginia, and the next one will be in an underserved area of Leesburg. Pizzarella’s, a family-style pizzeria, will open the first week of October in the Exeter Shopping Center off Battlefield Parkway at 700 Fieldstone Drive NE. Among Amireh’s other Loudoun restaurants are the Coney Island Diner in Ashburn and Purcellville and Ashburn’s Mezza Grill. “The Leesburg area is a growing area, and you have a lot of people and traffic in it,” Amireh said. “On this side of the town, there aren’t many restaurants and we’ll be the only one at that strip mall. Our concept will fit the type of neighbor-

hood that this is.” The Greenbriar Town Center in Fairfax houses the first Pizzarella’s location and the Leesburg restaurant will offer the same menu. On top of serving traditional pizza, the menu includes pasta dishes, sandwich wraps and Buffalo wings. The Philly cheesesteak is “loved by customers,” Amireh said. Offering patrons a pleasant sit-down area at his restaurant is something that also is important to the Landsdowne resident. “We are not like Domino’s or any of those other national pizza chains. We have a nice family-themed atmosphere for dine-in, and we have beer and wine on the premises. So you can either enjoy yourself at our establishment or just pick up a pizza on your way home from work.” Pizzarella’s is hiring and more information can be found at www.mealage.com/pizzarellas. n

arol Kost, chairman emeritus of Loudoun Youth Inc., received the Westmoreland Davis Civil Leadership Award last Tuesday in a ceremony at Morven Park. The award is given to an individual, who following the tradition of Gov. Davis, demonstrates leadership in encouraging civic participation among youth and adults. A leader in the field of youth promotion and education, Kost was recognized for her work in founding Loudoun Youth, an organization she established to develop out-of-school programs to help teenagers become confident and contributing members of the community. She worked for many years with state and local government agencies to build understanding of

youth issues. Kost was honored during Morven Park’s Distinguished Voices in Civics speakers forum, featuring a presentation by former eightterm Republican U.S. Congressman Mickey Edwards from Oklahoma. Since his departure from the national scene 22 years ago, Edwards said he’s gained a special perspective on what is wrong in American politics today as well as an optimistic vision for setting things aright. At the awards ceremony last week, Edwards discussed his latest book, “The Parties Versus the People,” in which he offers possible solutions to today’s hard-line partisan divisions in the political field. After leaving the national arena, Edwards taught for 11 years at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and for five years at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

he first construction component of Morven Park’s ambitious master plan for the development of the 1,000-acre estate is underway with last Friday’s groundbreaking for a renovated and expanded equestrian center. Phase 1 plans include replacement and relocation of the existing outdoor arenas. Four new arenas will be built south of Tutt Lane, in the middle of the former steeplechase track area. Later phases of construction will include a pavilion for spectators, a Grand Prix field, new barns and a new indoor stadium that, when finished, will serve a comprehensive, multidiscipline venue. The Grand Prix field will host show jumping, hunter derby and carriage driving competitions. While Morven Park no longer holds its October steeplechase races, the estate’s eques-

trian facilities “will evolve into a first-class competition venue with great spectator viewing and unsurpassed facilities for training and competition for all levels of riders in disciples,” Morven Park’s COO Sheryl Williams said in a statement. The new arrangement is the evolution of equine facilities that began in the 1960s, including the establishment of the Morven Park International Equestrian Institute. Dedicated to educating instructors to train future riders, the institute graduated 1,000 students between 1969 and 1991. Today’s Equestrian Center continues to host about 30 events each year, including the spring and fall horse trials, pony club rallies and camps, hunter shows and educational clinics. Morven Park also is home to Loudoun Therapeutic Riding and the Loudoun Hunt Pony Club. n

he’s a grandmother of 14 and a greatgrandmother of five. Sounds like a candidate for a rocking chair, right? No way! Roxie Curtis of Ashburn runs seven miles a day to keep fit, and on Sept. 13 could be found pounding away on the track of Thomas Jefferson Community Center in Arlington, taking part in her first, and the region’s 32nd, Northern Virginia Senior Olympics. “It’s only a number,” the ebullient 71-yearold transplanted New Yorker said of her age, moments after reaching the finish line. With family members in the stands to cheer her on, Curtis was entered in the three-milewalk competition, which kicked off the 10-day Senior Olympics. Events are open to those ages 50 on up; the most senior competitor this year is 104-year-old Doris Woodring of Prince William County. A record 772 participants are competing in 1,981 individual events. “Both of those numbers are records,” said Dave Jerome, chairman of the volunteer committee that oversees the annual competition. When the program began in 1982, just 72 people took part. The exponential growth has pleased boosters, but has not been without challenges. “It takes a large number of volunteers— at least 150, probably much more than that,” Jerome said at the opening ceremony, where former committee chairman Janet Garber was selected to carry a replica torch that kicked off the competition. Judy Massabny, who coordinates the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics initiative through

the Arlington government’s Office of Senior Adult Programs, said the 5K run, a new event in 2014, had attracted a large number of athletes, while there also have been large increases in those participating in volleyball and cycling. Events take place in venues across Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax County, the city of Fairfax, Loudoun County, Prince William County and Fauquier County. They range from athletic (diving, tennis, racquetball) to more recreational (Wii bowling, cribbage, yo-yo). Arlington County Board Vice Chairman Mary Hynes, who welcomed competitors, said the Senior Olympics is one part of a multipronged approach to helping Northern Virginians enjoy their senior years vibrantly. “Living well, moving, being engaged physically and intellectually is all part of living a healthy life,” Hynes said. The goal for some of the athletes was to come in first, but for others, taking part was the key desire. One seasoned citizen took a good amount of time to complete the three-mile walk, aided by a helper. Ultimately, and to the cheers of the crowd, she got to the finish line. “All that counts is finishing,” one father told his child as they looked on. For Curtis, the competition was not just about physical activity, but also about meeting new people and trying new things. Next year, she’s going to sign up to compete in volleyball and a number of other events. Curtis’ advice for those on the fence about taking part? “Go for it,” she said. Northern Virginia Senior Olympics runs through Sept. 24. Results will be available on the Web site at www.nvso.us. Photos taken by Frank Ruth will be available at www.frankruth.smugmug.com. n

he Town of Hillsboro is in full action mode as it seeks to fulfill some ambitious goals as part of its intent to place itself firmly on the map as the destination location for northwest Loudoun. Oct. 18, the town will debut its inaugural Heritage Day, celebrating the town’s history and accomplishments. In addition to continuing to raise funds for the ongoing restoration of its iconic Old Stone School, now the town’s community center, the town has two projects that are crucial to its

request for the Purcellville Town Council to annex a 50-acre parcel at the northwest corner of the Rt. 287/Rt. 7 Bypass intersection spurred strong objections from area residents last Tuesday night, mostly from the adjacent Wright’s Farm community. Developers Bradford Kline and Bill Tilley are behind the Purcellville Crossroads project, which envisions a mix of commercial and residential uses, including indoor and outdoor recreation facilities at a Tilley Entertainment Center on 25 acres; a commercial center including restaurant, retail and hotel uses, as well as 30 single-family detached homes and 70 townhouses on 21 acres; and a four-acre parkand-ride lot. As proposed, the project would locate the residential lots in the western portion of the land, with the park-and-ride lot to the south with access from Rt. 7 Bypass. The eastern portion would feature the indoor entertainment and outdoor activities mostly on the north, while five locations are slated for restaurant and retail use in the middle and southern portions, including a hotel just off the highway.

An existing barn would be renovated and reused. The presentation by Bowman Consulting stressed annexation advantages for the town, including giving the town leaders control over development of that key location, increased commercial tax revenues, and the facilitation of town and county transportation objectives, including right of way for the planned Northern Collector Road and the park-and-ride facility. However, opponents saw it otherwise. Only one of 19 speakers on the topic supported the project Tuesday night. Those against it included residents of the Wright’s Farm neighborhood. Earlier this year, residents of the Old DominBowman Consulting ion Valley subdivision led a successful campaign to defeat plans by The proposed Purcellville Crossroads project at the Rt. 7 Bypass/Rt. 287 intersection envisions townTilley and the Franklin Johnston Group houses and single-family homes, a park-and-ride lot, a restaurant, retail sites, a hotel and the Tilley

• The Mosby Heritage Area Association alerts Civil War enthusiasts about its upcoming “Annual conference on the Art of Command in the Civil War,” which will be held Oct. 3-5 at the Middleburg Middleburg Community Center. This year’s conference theme is “July 1, 1863, Gettysburg – The First Day.” Speakers will include noted authors and historians Kim Holien, Robert K. Krick, Gary Gallagher, Wayne Motts, Stuart Dempsey, John M. Rudy Christopher S. Stowe and Eric J. Wittenberg. The conference begins at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3 with book browsing and registration, followed by two speakers. At 8 a.m. Saturday, the conference resumes, with a break for lunch at noon, followed by the afternoon session and panel discussion. The evening ends with a banquet at the Red Fox Inn. Sunday features a bus tour of Gettysburg, departing at 8 a.m. and returning by 5 p.m. Registration for the three days is $425 or $200 for Friday and Saturday’s talks and lunch only.

long-term goals. They include the town’s longplanned traffic-calming project for Rt. 9 as it passes through Hillsboro, estimated at $20.5 million, and its state-mandated water resources plan, for which the town has the necessary $1.7 million funding—a $1.2 million chunk of which came in the form of a much appreciated county grant. The new town well will result in the town having its first truly reliable water source and remove its reliance on Hill Tom Spring, as ordered by the state. To date, the traffic-calming project has funding only for preliminary engineering, estimated at $1.8 million. Plus right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation at $3.3 million and

The afternoon includes food, entertainment, silent auction bidding and various “doggie events.” The organization has grown rapidly in three years, during which it has managed to place more than 1,400 dogs from high kill shelters in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia in Washington, DC-area homes. It’s a big task as the group says more than 90 percent of dogs do not make it out of those shelters. The group cites an urgent need for experienced volunteers, particularly those with good organizational skills. The many tasks include working with veterinarians, writing up medical advice for those adopting the dogs, keeping medical records, updating databases and organizing transport or heading up individual projects. For more information, go to www.ophrescue.org.

a construction estimate of $15.5 million, the project tops out at $20.5 million, according to VDOT estimates. But the town thinks the ROW costs will be less than those estimated and there’s money left over from the original $2.4 million federal grant that covers the preliminary engineering costs. The major design elements of the Rt. 9 traffic-calming project are approved—including roundabouts at each end of the town and a variety of measures designed to slow in-town traffic—and Mayor Roger Vance hopes that the relocation of utilities and placing of the new water main under Rt. 9 could be done at the same time as the roadwork.

• The second annual “Breast Friends” event will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wed., Sept. 24 in the Lovettsville Elementary School cafeteria. Area health care professionals and the breast cancer support Lovettsville group will be on hand to talk with individuals about their risk of getting breast cancer and how to cope with the disease. The event is spearheaded by two Lovettsville mothers who have been impacted by breast cancer and want to help spread the word on how individuals can protect their health and find strength and power. Michelle Batt and Nicole Clark will share their own breast cancer stories. They also will cover the risk factors and do a bit of what they call “myth busting.” The two alert others to the importance of researching their family’s history regarding various cancers and seek information on genetic counseling and testing. Breast cancer professionals will speak on a variety of treatment options, including surgery, plastic surgery/ reconstruction, breast imaging, oncology and physical therapy as well as answering individual questions. Information also will be provided

“The relocation of utilities is a large undertaking—especially in the town itself where the area is so constricted,” Vance said, adding it will be much more cost-efficient and less onerous on commuters if the road and utilities and water line work is done at the same time and if the road is torn up only once, rather than twice. “Where’s the sense in that,” Vance said. But how to pay for the road project is the question, he said, adding it’s been in the six-year road plan since 2004. One possibility is that the road improvement might qualify for funding through the state transportation pot of money available to Continued on Next Page

Refreshments will be provided by Catoctin Coffee, Sugar & Spice Bakery, community/PTO members and area churches. • Former Purcellville Mayor Bob Lazaro has left Inova Health System to take a new job, as director of Regional Energy Strategies for the Northern Virginia Regional Commission. Lazaro, who Purcellville started at NVRC two weeks ago, spoke before the Leesburg Town Council last week regarding a solar energy pilot project in Leesburg which the commission hopes to slowly open up to all Northern Virginia residents. Lazaro spent four and a half years with Inova as community relations executive before taking the job with NVRC. The former mayor made promotion of energy and environmental conservation a hallmark of his tenure in Purcellville and says the shift to that arena in his new position is a natural evolution.

extension of government, they’re our ambassadors,” he said. Councilwoman Joan Lehr favored closed session interviews, as did Councilman Doug McCollum. She said it would be fairer to the applicants. “If they’re open, all the candidates can listen, and 10 of them could be better prepared—that’s not appropriate,” she said. But Vice Mayor John Nave sided with the open option, echoing Fraser’s comments. Councilman Ben Packard said he preferred to have the interviews done in open session, but said “if respect is not shown” the council could go into closed session discussion. A motion by Lehr to hold all interviews in closed session failed before Packard’s motion for open sessions passed 4-3, with Fraser, Packard, Vice Mayor John Nave and Councilwoman Karen Jimmerson in favor and Lehr and Councilmen Doug McCollum and Patrick McConville opposed. The council unanimously approved a policy of discussing choices for various seats in closed session before taking a public vote to make appointments. The interviews will be conducted Sept. 16 and Sept. 30 at the Town Hall, with appointment announcements made after the interviews Sept. 30.

he Purcellville Town Council is working to fill a large number of vacancies on its various advisory boards—some 15 in all. Many of those whose term is up are interested in continuing to serve, but there still will be many slots to fill. Seats will be available on the Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, Economic Development Advisory Committee and Board of Architectural Review. During its Sept. 9 meeting, the Town Council debated the pros and cons of holding the interviews— either open or closed session—before making appointments. In a narrow 4-3 vote, the council decided to interview candidates in open public session. Town Manager Robert W. Lohr pointed out to the council that in the past the town has used a number of processes to evaluate candidates, including both open and closed session interviews with council members. A survey of eight other jurisdictions found they all favored the closed session approach. In Purcellville, the most recent councils have conducted the interviews in closed session, Lohr said. Mayor Kwasi Fraser was among those favoring open-session interviews. “That’s been my position based on my belief they are an

counties for projects of regional significance. Another is to break it down into segments, but that has its snags, in that if the roundabouts—at around $5.7 million each—were built separately that would affect the in-town flow. The system is designed as a whole, Vance said. There would be substantial savings in construction time and money by combining the two projects, and Vance noted the state requires the town to get the water project done in a timely fashion. The town is willing to wait to bring the new water source online if the funding could

come through on the road project to allow the underground work to be done in sync with the roadwork. “We need to get people to the table to see how to make this work for everyone and save money,” Vance said this week, adding the town is applying again for federal enhancement money as well as looking at the regional transportation allocations. “We have a vision; we need to share it, make it an imperative. We need to show our economic value to the county and the area,” Vance said at the time of the first concert—a statement that remains a goal for the council. n

for an in-town mixed-use project of apartments and entertainment center along Hirst Road and Maple Avenue. In the face of stiff public opposition that application was withdrawn before it came before the Town Council for review. Tuesday night, the speakers’ opposition echoed that earlier fight, with residents emphasizing concerns about noise, lights, traffic congestion and the environment, as well as damage to property values, and—for many, most importantly—the loss of the rural serenity and beauty of mountain views that drew them to the area in the first place. The Wright’s Farm homeowners association previously had stated its opposition to having the subdivision annexed into town. Matt Parse said most people in the neighborhood “knew nothing about this,” and cited the impressive turnout Tuesday evening, arranged within 24 hours, of residents objecting to the project. “This is not good for rural Loudoun,” he said. Town resident Margey O’Brien, who had opposed the first Tilley application, said “I don’t see how this is any different from before,” noting the impact on Rt. 7 Bypass. Christopher Perez said if you looked at the surrounding agriculture, there’s nothing resembling the Disney-like impact of the project on the neighborhood. Noting his house sits along the path of the planned Northern Collector Road, “I’d like you to consider the impacts [of this]. I’d like this to not be put in our backyard,” he told the council. The proposed annexation area lies east of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church and south of Wright’s Farm. Development plans for another

large parcel west of Wright’s Farm, the Warner property, also are in the works. The land is zoned JLMA-3 and would require a rezoning to accommodate commercial uses. It has often been cited as a likely candidate for annexation, as interest has turned to commercial development of land beyond the town’s northern boundary. For the project to succeed, the road ahead would be lengthy. The county and the town would have to come to agreement that the land should be annexed into town, or admitted through a boundary line adjustment—both of which would have to be approved by a Circuit Court judge, according to the town. Public hearings would be held both on the annexation and any subsequent rezoning application. The council made few comments at this stage on the merits of annexation, although Mayor Kwasi Fraser said the key issue that emerged from the speakers appeared to be “a misalignment between what the developers want and what the residents want.” The developers should sit at the table with [residents] and “get feedback and discuss what can and should be built there,” he said urging the two groups to come together. Councilwoman Karen Jimmerson cited her earlier opposition to the Hirst Road application that led to her run for council. “I’ve been in your shoes,” she said. “We’ll be thoughtful, do due diligence. We did it before and trust me, we’ll do it again.” Councilwoman Joan Lehr cautioned residents, “this [annexation] is an extremely long process.” And she assured the audience, “this is not a done deal.” Lehr said the speakers’ comments had shown the need for the company to meet with residents. n

n 11,847-square-foot addition to Mercer Middle School was informally dedicated with a ribboncutting ceremony Aug. 27. Principal Bob Phillips, School Board member Jeff Morse (Dulles) and Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles) held the oversized scissors and cut a red ribbon to celebrate the completion of the $3.5 million, nine-classroom addition. The addition, built by Keller Brothers of Mt. Airy, MD, raises Mercer’s capacity from 1,178 students to 1,350, close to the capacity of the high school it feeds into, John Champe. “Mercer has been the workhorse of the Dulles District for 10 years,” Morse said, according to a school system press release on the new expansion. Morse noted that the middle school has educated as many as 1,500 students at one time. Despite the size of the school’s enrollment, stu-

dents never thought their school was overcrowded, he said. Mercer’s staff made sure students thrived despite their number. “When you think about that and the size of this facility before this addition, it’s a pretty impressive feat.” Morse also pointed out Loudoun County Public Schools that Mercer served as an From left, Supervisor Matt Letourneau (R-Dulles), Mercer Principal Bob Phillips and School Board member Jeff Morse annex for the freshman class at (Dulles) cut the ribbon on the middle school’s new addition.

iddle and high school boys are invited to the free Inspire, Connect and Educate Conference Saturday, Sept. 27 at Park View High School in Sterling. The 2014 ICE Conference, put on by Virginia-based Operation Uplift Foundation, is designed to inspire youth—particularly young black men—about “the promise that lies within them, the educational and vocational options that are before them, and the individuals who are ready to support them.” DeMaurice F. Smith, executive director for the National Football League Players’

Association, will be the keynote speaker, and the day’s workshops will focus on high school readiness, higher education readiness and career readiness. Conference registration and check-in is 7:30-8 a.m., and the conference is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Linwood Stokes at 703-618-7300 or treasurer@ opuplift.org.

tion programs, Hornberger said, “if we are not advancing. We are falling behind.” He said the best solution lies in the opportunities to be offered at the Academies of Loudoun, which will be on November’s ballot for funding. That center—providing new homes for the Academy of Science and the C.S. Monroe Technology Center and establishing a new Academy of Engineering and Technology—will serve as a hub to make advance courses available to many more students. In the audience for the forum, Supervisor Ken Reid (R-Leesburg) noted only 10 percent of applicants for the Academy of Science are accepted into the program. He asked if the School Board would seek more funding to expand the program to accommodate even more before the Academies of Loudoun is built. “We will be asking for more money, of course,” Hornberger said. “The question is will Loudoun County want to pay for it?” n

and it has an 83 percent graduation rate, Templin noted. Another challenge Templin identified is getting students to study in the right fields— proficiency in the scientific method, engineering and big data. Generating that interest should start at the elementary school level and NVCC is doing that with a growing summer camp program. Hornberger also highlighted the importance of the dual enrollment initiative, pointing out that more than 30 college courses are offered in Loudoun high schools this year and that a partnership with James Madison University has helped Loudoun develop the largest high school GIS program in the state. The school system also has invested in computer science programs in high school and introduced a middle school pilot code-writing program at Blue Ridge Middle School. Referring to school leaders’ commitments to expand STEM and career technical educa-

do a better job of sharing information about successful ventures, she added. Templin, who this week announced plans to retire next year, said there must be a realignment of the education system to meet today’s global demands. “We can’t do it under this current configuration,” he said. “Loudoun County Public Schools can’t solve the problem by itself.” Templin, who managed the Center For Innovative Technology in Herndon before joining NVCC in 2002, said a key focus must be on how to fill the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be vacated by retiring baby boomers in coming years. “The smartest strategy is: we can grow our own,” he said. While school districts like Loudoun’s take pride in the high percentage of graduates who attend college, Templin said, that path doesn’t

always lead to success. Too often students are pulling out before earning degrees, not studying in the fields needed by employers and ending up under a mountain of debt. NVCC is working to combat those problems by expanding its dual enrollment opportunities. This year, 2,000 high school students— with Loudoun students making up the largest group—are taking college-level courses at their home schools. A goal of promoting advance learning at the high school level is to permit students—as many as 80 percent of graduates—to complete a full year of college coursework while in high school and potentially cutting the cost of their university education by 25 percent. NVCC also is targeting promising 10th and 11th grade students in danger of not going to college for inclusion in a highly structured program leading to guaranteed admission to George Mason University and a debt-free college education. The program has 10,000 students this year, including 2,000 from Loudoun,

ASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio visited Orbital Sciences’ Dulles campus Monday, just a little more than eight months after the company sent its first supplies-filled spaceship to the International Space Station where Mastracchio was stationed for four months. “Thank you for the vehicle,” Mastracchio said. “It was extremely clean and when we were finished, it worked great as a trashcan, as you advised.” Not a bad report for the first customer on the receiving end of the company’s first delivery. Orbital Sciences, which employs 3,500 people and generates about $1.4 billion in revenue per year, is in the midst of a $1.9 billion commercial contract with NASA. The mission of sending the Cygnus vehicle, or Orb-1, was completed Jan. 12, 2014 and Orb-2 was sent to the only micro-lab in space in mid-July. Following each Orb’s completed mission, the Cygnus is designed to burn up in the atmosphere. But it’s not that easy to get the cargo safely to the station. “The space station and Cygnus are orbit-

There’s a tremendous amount of brain power here because this is a knowledge business—you have to know everything about the spacecraft, about how it operates, and it’s the people here on the Loudoun County campus that do that. It’s pretty highprofile for them because it’s restoring capabilities to the United States in space, and we’ve helped with the cargo aspect.” Mastracchio toured the manufacturing building where all the complex systems and parts are built as well as the mission control center for the Cygnus missions. The third resupply mission is scheduled to launch from Virginia’s Wallops Island spaceport Oct. 18.

Passenger Counts Down At National, Dulles Airports

T

otal passenger counts were down at Northern Virginia’s two main airports in July, compared with the previous year, as carriers continue to sort out their expansion and contraction at Reagan National and Dulles airports. The passenger total of 2.03 million at Dulles was down 2.5 percent, and the total of 1.8 million at Reagan National was down 1.9 percent, according to figures reported Sept. 15 by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Figures account for both arriving and departing passengers. At Dulles, the year-over-year decline was precipitated largely by cutbacks in domestic activity from dominant United (down 5.6 percent from a year before) and Delta (down 12.3 percent). International travel was up 4.2 percent from a year before, resulting in part from new Air China service to Beijing, significant increases for TACA and Austrian and a more modest increase for United. United’s total market share of 64.1 percent of passengers at Dulles, including regional affiliates, was down from 69.4 percent a year before. It was followed by the merging American and US Airways (4.9 percent), Delta (3.7 percent) and Southwest (2.6 percent). At Reagan National, the combined American and US Airways retained their dominant position, but saw total passenger counts down 9 percent from a year ago. Those two airlines, which will continue to operate separately for another year, were forced to divest some of their

takeoff and landing slots in order to win regulatory approval for their merger. The decline for American/US Airways at Reagan National largely was offset by increases in passenger totals for Southwest (up 26.8 percent), JetBlue (25.9 percent) and Delta (7.7 percent). American and US Airways controlled 55.2 percent of passenger totals at National in July, down from 59.8 percent a year before, followed by Delta (15.8 percent), United (8.8 percent), JetBlue (7.8 percent) and Southwest/AirTran (6.5 percent). For the year-to-date through July, passenger totals were 12 million at Reagan National, down 0.6 percent from the same period in 2013, and 12.4 million at Dulles, down 2.8 percent. Combined, the passenger count of 24.4 million was off 1.7 percent from a year before. At the region’s third major airport, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall, passenger activity for July of 2.16 million was down 0.2 percent from the previous year. Southwest and AirTran, which have merged but will be flying under separate flags through December, remain the powerhouse at that airport, recording just under 71 percent of passengers in July. Reagan National and Dulles are owned by the federal government and operated by the airports’ authority. BWI is owned and operated by the state of Maryland.

ntonio Jackson looked forward to the 2013 season being a breakout one for him with the Loudoun County football team. The Raiders were coming off a run

to the region finals and Jackson, entering his first full season as a wide receiver, hoped he could help the team take that next step to state recognition.
 Jackson’s dreams ended in the first quarter of Loudoun County’s first game at Fauquier. The speedy receiver was tackled hard and broke his left collarbone, leaving him

inactive for the next seven games. In his absence, the Raiders struggled for consistency and their season ended with a disappointing loss to Woodgrove in the first round of the Group 4A North Region playoffs.

 But Jackson’s ability to return from his injury before the end of last season was an inspiration to the Raiders and himself. Despite missing seven games, he finished the year fifth on the Raiders with 20 receptions for 323 yards.
 “When [the doctors] told us what happened and he would have surgery the very next day, we thought there was no way [Antonio] would be back,” Loudoun County head coach Todd Hill said. “But he told us, ‘Coach, I will be back before the season is over. I will not let the team down.’ He got through his surgery, hit the weight room and started working out, and by God, he was back by game nine. “It definitely affected the team as a whole, but especially the receivers,” Hill said of Jackson’s absence. “We hit a lull toward the end of the season last year and just weren’t getting anywhere, for various reasons, in the passing game. But his return was a big spark to the offense.” “In my mind, I always knew that I would come back,” Jackson said. “When I first got injured, they told me my season was over. But once I started the rehab process, I started to speed things up and they said I could possibly be back for the last few games. I was just trying to get back as fast as I could to help my team win games. We were struggling in a couple of games and I wanted to help.”

 “That is a small example of how dedicated he is and how hard he works,” Hill

He has a great attitude and just wants to be a part of it, any way he can help us. He’s just the type of kid you want on your team.”

 Jackson joined the Loudoun County varsity team midway through the 2012 season and got the opportunity to play with his older brother, Isaiah, who was a senior tight end for the Raiders. County advanced to the Group AA Region II playoffs and knocked off cross-town rival Tuscarora before falling to eventual state champion Briar Woods in the region final.

 Jackson had five catches and a touchdown in that playoff victory over Tuscarora and looked forward to a huge season in 2013. Now, he understands how everything can be taken away at a moment’s notice and he has a new outlook for his senior campaign.

 “I try to just take every game one game at a time,” Jackson said. “I try to play my hardest every game because you never know what is going to happen. It has driven me more this year and I’m more motivated to do well and Continued on Next Page

“There are really two reasons,” says owner Dave Snell “The first is basic supply and demand economics. The demand for repair calls is low and therefore our pricing for tune-ups has got to come down in order to increase the demand.

“Second, when I run this type of promotion I don’t expect to make any money on the front end. I know, however, that when homeowners experience the level of service we provide, they’ll come back to us again for all their home comfort needs.”

Some things come easier when you have that connection.”

 A success in the classroom as well as on the field, Jackson hopes to continue his football career at Fordham University in New York next season. Jackson, who placed fifth in the high jump at the Group 4A State Championships last June, also hopes he might be able to continue his track and field career.

 “He’s a strong student and he loves their academics,” Hill said of Fordham. “He’s had a lot of schools talk to him and he’s keeping some options open, but I think right now that’s what he wants to do.”

 “It’s always been my dream to play in college,” Jackson said. “Fordham is that dream school of mine. It’s in the top 50 in the nation for business, which is what I want to study, and the football team is also nationally ranked in FCS [NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision]. It’s kind of the best of both worlds. You can play on a good football team and also get a good education.”

 For the moment, though, Jackson and the Raiders have a more direct focus.

 “Our team goal is always to make the playoffs and make a run for the state championship,” Jackson said. “As a team, we want to be more sound and more balanced. Last year, we weren’t as good with the running game, so we had to focus on the pass and depend on that. Now, this year, we have some young guys and are more balanced. We want to show everyone we can compete with the best and make a run in the playoffs.”

help my team to the best of my ability.”

 This season, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Jackson leads Loudoun County (2-1 as it heads into Thursday’s contest versus Park View in Leesburg) with 13 receptions for 258 yards and six touchdowns. He also has returned two punts for scores.

 Jackson had eight catches for 82 yards in County’s 52-14 loss to Briar Woods last week. Trailing 17-14 at halftime, the Raiders had an opportunity to take the lead on their first drive of the second half, but they turned the ball over on downs at the Falcons’18-yard line. Briar Woods scored on its ensuing possession and pulled away to the victory. “It really changed momentum,” Jackson said of County not scoring on that first second-half drive. “For our team, we didn’t get down on ourselves, but we knew we missed a big opportunity by not scoring on that drive. It was definitely a lesson learned. When you lose a game, you have more to fix than when you win. We saw things we can improve on and fix.”

 Jackson’s relationship with senior quarterback Tae Crews-Naylor is a big key to Loudoun County’s success. The pair have grown up together, playing youth football together since age 6, and Crews-Naylor moved into Jackson’s neighborhood three years ago.

 “It helps a lot that we’re so close because it translates onto the field,” Jackson said. “We go practice every weekend that we can, throwing the ball in the street or working on routes. It helps to have that connection on the field.

here was a time when Loudouners hungry for arts and culture had to head east as far as Washington, DC. But logging in miles is no longer a must. Weekends are often chock full of choices, and this fall is brimming with events in classical and contemporary music, theater, dance and the visual arts. This weekend (Sept. 20-21) offers tons of choices for art lovers. Downtown Leesburg will be bustling with visitors to the town’s third annual Fine Arts Fair. This free outdoor festival features skilled artisans and their creations in painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, woodworking, glass, fiber art and more at the corner of King and Market streets. Also this weekend, the second in a series of concerts at Hillsboro’s historic Old Stone School features Baritone Kevin Frey and Soprano Grace Srinivasan under the direction of George Washington University’s Neil Weston. The series continues with Sunday concerts in November and December. The Old Stone School also will host folk rock legend Iain Matthews for a performance (with optional bistro dinner) Friday, Sept. 19. (See “Get Out” for details on both concerts).

The program features selections from the movies “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Hook” as well as “The Snow White Fantasy” and the “Sleeping Beauty Waltz.” Children (and orchestra members) are invited to attend in costume. “It’s a great way to get everybody acclimated to the symphony “speak” at the beginning of the season and a big bang to start off with. We get the opportunity to introduce the rest of the season for people to start marking their calendars,” said Maestro Mark McCoy, who hopes that parents attending with their children will come back for concerts later in the season including a “Sax and Shostakovich” program in November, a holiday concert in DecemLeesburg Today/File Photo ber and an all-Mozart program in Since the Leesburg Fine Arts Fair launched in 2012, it’s been a hit.

But music lovers can get a taste of the upcoming season at the group’s fall fundraiser Oct. 26 at Stone Tower Winery southwest of Leesburg, featuring selections from its upcoming season. The 28-member group, directed by Erik Jones, is a select, auditioned ensemble focusing on 20th and 21st centuries’ choral works. The group celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and the upcoming season features favorite pieces from past seasons. “While we put some lighter stuff in there, we tend more toward the esoteric stuff you’re not normally going to hear on the radio,” said Don Young, the group’s president and a singer in the ensemble for 11 years. “It’s unique material.” The Leesburg-based Loudoun Chorale also starts its season Dec. 6 with a pair of holiday concerts (loudounchorale.org). That group does not require auditions and is currently looking for music lovers to join its ranks. The Loudoun Ballet Company celebrates a milestone anniversary this year. The company opens its 25th season with its fall production, “Evening in White” Oct. 4 and 5 at Broad Run High School in Ashburn (www.loudounballet. org). The production features original choreography from LBC staff and collaborators. The centerpiece of the performance will be the LBC premiere of Act II of the classic ballet Giselle.

rganizers are working to make next weekend’s Oktoberfest in Lovettsville bigger and better. The annual celebration of the town’s Germany heritage kicks off Friday evening with the communal dinner at the Lovettsville Community Center, followed by the opening of competition for the royalty competition. The main tent’s beer garden starts the fun at 7 p.m. with plenty of beer and food, music from local favorite Ghost Pepper, more royalty competition and then, the main event, the attempt to set a record for a group singing of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Lovettsville Pizza & Subs also will have live music, featuring Chris Bowen, The Bone Show. Saturday is packed with activities, starting at 7 a.m. with the traditional pancake breakfast at Lovettsville Elementary. It’s a day full of celebration of German beer and music at the main tent, including a stein-hoisting contest and plenty of music and dance— from the traditional Bavarian music of Alte Kameraden to the artistry of the Alpine Dancers to performances by The Vigilantes and Donegal X-Press. And the activities continue elsewhere in town, including games for toddlers through teens on North Church Street, the popular used book sale and live music at the Lovettsville Library and organ grinder Lola and Master Bob can be seen in various locations. Mad Horse Brewpub will feature an expanded Oktoberfest food and beer menu, live music by Jake and the Burtones and Chris Bowen’s The Bone Show. Lovettsville Pizza & Subs will also field an expanded food and beer menu, as well as a pizza-eating contest and music by Loudoun Music Instruction and Cheap Date. The festival closes on a calmer note Sunday with a church service at Catoctin Bible Church and music recitals by Loudoun Music Instruction students. Hoping for good weather—the prayer of every festival organizer—event chairman Jim McIntyre said the committee’s focus this year was not so much to introduce new features as to “make sure everything we’re doing we’re doing better.” A huge plus this year is having additional space next to the Town Hall, land recently purchased by the town. The main tent will now be located in that space and features including the popular Wiener dog ashburn races will be run there.

Another focus this year has been to improve coordination with town businesses, McIntyre said. “We want to spread it out to them; we don’t want it to become just the beer garden, we want to find out how to do something for them,” he said. Mad Horse Brewpub, for instance, will have a tent and a live band. “We want to do more of that kind of cooperation,” he said. There is one new feature this year— that will be added to Saturday’s opening ceremonies at 11:15 a.m. at the main tent. Councilwoman Jennifer Jones has coordinated the Volunteer Recognition event in which a number of community groups will have booths to explain the services they offer and seven awards will be given to civic groups and individuals. Then comes another recognition when all town residents age 90 or older share the stage. McIntyre said there are five—including one aged 97 and one who turned 90 in June. As part of the opening ceremonies, McIntyre will introduce the members of his committee, before all eyes turn to the ceremonial “tapping of the keg.” McIntyre said the committee hopes to break even on the event—any surplus will roll over support next year’s event and be distributed to groups that support Oktoberfest and to the elementary school. Oktoberfest uses no taxpayer money. “The goal is for it to pay for itself, and, hopefully, to give some back to the community,” McIntyre said. Future plans include expanding the event to extend across Rt. 287/Berlin Pike into the Town Center, but the heart of it will stay t oind the a yold downtown area, McIntyre said. n

he second of Hillsboro’s classic musical series of concerts will coincide with an art show by 15 artists this Sunday at the Old Stone School. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the art show, while the “Autumnal Tones for Baritone” concert will begin at 7 p.m. To complete the celebratory mood, light fare will be sold by Food4Thought Catering and there will be wine available from Doukenie Winery. The program of classical music and classic Broadway songs is the second in a series of four concerts designed to raise funds for the ongoing restoration of the Old Stone School. It features baritone Kevin Frey, special guest soprano Grace Srinivasan and concert director and accompanist Neil Weston. Frey is a senior at George Washington University, where he is a Presidential Scholar of the Arts and president of the GWU Singers and Chamber Choir. A featured soloist, Frey has appeared in many GWU main stage theater and opera productions. Srinivasan, who performed in the earlier July concert at the Old Stone School, is a soprano and actress working in the

Washington, DC, area who will soon complete her master’s in music at Peabody University. She stars in the title role in the docudrama “Enemy of the Reich,” which airs on PBS this month. Weston is a graduate of the University of London and the Royal Academy of Music, and is a recipient of advanced performance diplomas from the Royal College of Music and the Royal College of Organists. He has performed on BBC radio and television, with the United States Army Band and the Washington Bach Consort, among many leading musical troupes.

company holds open auditions for all productions, but is affiliated with the Loudoun School of Ballet, where most of the female dancers train. More and more, said company chairman Mark Nachajski, the company routinely brings in professional male dancers to partner with its female dancers (who range from eighth grade through high school) for performances. The company will perform its 25th full-length production of “The Nutcracker” Dec. 19-21 in South Riding. “We’ve raised the level of experience [to offer] a quality performance without having to drive into the city,” Nachajski said. If classical music is not your thing, don’t worry. As many have noticed, the contemporary music scene in downtown Leesburg and, increasingly, downtown Purcellville, is thriving. This fall brings a number of big names to the Tally Ho, the former movie theater now closing out its second year as a first-class music venue. Upcoming concerts like 10000 Maniacs (Oct. 3), Pure Prairie League (Oct. 11) and Average White Band (Oct. 24.) are sure to draw crowds from all over the metropolitan DC region. DC-based Chaise Lounge, originally slated to play the Tally Ho this summer, makes its debut Nov. 1. The Tally Ho’s fall schedule also includes a long list of affordably priced shows from emerging artists and high-quality tribute bands www.tallyholeesburg.com. Meanwhile, to the west, the increasingly popular Buncearoo concert series (www.buncearoo.com) brings seasoned performers to Purcellville’s Catoctin Creek Distilling Company and Adroit Theory Brewing. Fall shows at Catoctin Creek include singer/songwriters Luke Brindley and Christ Ayer (Sept. 26) and rock artist Pat McGee (Nov. 14), while singer/songwriter Tony Lucca plays the recently opened Adroit Theory Brewing Nov. 15. Also on the horizon, Leesburg’s Spanky’s Shenanigans hosts a second Cancer Can Rock benefit concert Saturday, Sept. 27, featuring local favorites including Todd Wright, Michael Sheppard, Cal Everett, Tommy Gann, Prescott Engle, Johnny Kasun and Stilson Greene. Loudoun visual artists Jill Evans-Kavaldjian, president of the Loudoun Arts Council (www. loudounarts.org), whose mission is to promote the development of all disciplines of the arts in the county, and manager of the Round Hill Arts Center, said that while Loudoun has always had a solid arts community, artists and arts organizations are getting better about reaching the community at large (www.roundhillartscenter.org). “We’re all getting better about marketing ourselves and getting the word out,” she said. “[LAC is] assembling a new board with a lot of energy and trying to fit into the community in new ways.” Along with the council’s Arts in the Village co-op gallery (www.artsinthevillage.com), which celebrates its second anniversary this month and features an artists’ reception Sept. 20, the LAC recently launched its Artists in Schools initiative, bringing visiting artists to local public school classrooms and is actively involved in Lees-

burg’s monthly First Friday events, highlighting established galleries like Photoworks (www. photowork.net) and ArtSquare (www.loudounartsquare.org). Other upcoming events include a sale of monster-themed works at Leesburg’s Inksanity Tattoo Company Oct. 18 and the third annual Think Outside the Box exhibit featuring works incorporating cardboard or pasteboard boxes, opening Oct. 11 at Round Hill Arts Center. RHAC also will offer family oriented activities on Fridays this fall, including a free drum circle every third Friday featuring instructor Jona Masiya and monthly family art nights including ceramic pumpkins in September, Halloween wigs in October and totem poles in November. Evans-Kavaldjian said she’s also particularly excited about the new season at Franklin Park Arts Center outside Purcellville (www.franklinparkartscenter.org). Since its opening in 2008, the center has succeeded in bringing in big name acts as well as providing a high quality home for local productions. This season at Franklin Park includes performances by local music therapist, performer and director Tom Sweitzer, the Buzz McCafferty Quartet (as part of the venue’s new jazz series), Clark Hansbarger’s “Dream of a Good Death” show (part Civil War folk opera, part multi-media history lecture) and jazz and swing from the Franklin Park Big Band, zydeco/blues from the Crawdaddies, contemporary dance from Jazz & Co., and singer/ songwriter Andrew McKnight. For theater and comedy lovers, productions include shows from the popular all-ages Last Ham Standing improv group, a show from the famed Capitol Steps comedy revue, VSA of Loudoun’s creative medley show including dance, theater and music, and Loudoun Lyric Opera’s production of The Pirates of Penzance. Families will undoubtedly be flocking to Main Street Theatre’s production of “Oliver,” which runs Oct. 31-Nov. 9 at Franklin Park, and the center’s regular children’s productions on weekday mornings, including Dino Rock and Barefoot Puppets (mainstreettheaterproductions.org). Family oriented productions are big with many area theater companies. Leesburg-based Walker Performing Arts will produce its all-ages production of “Freezing” in November (walkerperformingarts.com). Meanwhile, Loudoun’s StageCoach Theatre Company, which regularly produces works for young audiences, has also found a niche in adult-oriented murder mysteries. This fall, the company launches a dinner theater production of an original piece “Monsters Undercover” for ages 13 and up at Leesburg’s Westpark Golf Club Oct. 24 and 25 and Nov. 1 at Carradoc Hall. StageCoach will also offer a dramatic ghost tour at Notaviva Vineyards near Hillsboro Oct. 30 and 31 (stagecoachtc.com). So whether you’re looking for a fun evening out with the family, a calming evening of classical music, a sophisticated gallery show, an energetic rock show, a good laugh or a good scare, Loudoun’s burgeoning arts scene has got you covered. n

John B. Murphy, Jr

John B. Murphy, Jr. 77, of Leesburg, VA,passed away on Sunday, September 7, 2014. After leaving the United States Air Force, Mr. Murphy worked for the Federal Aviation Administration for 33 years as an Air Traffic controller, before retiring in 1987. While living and working in Leesburg, Va., John was the consummate volunteer always willing to lend help where required. He was the broadcaster for LCHS for Friday Night Football for over 25 years. He was a Member of the Jaycees. Possibly his biggest impact on Leesburg, Loudoun, and the State of VA was his cocreation of Central Loudoun Little League in 1967. Mr. Murphy served as President, Secretary, Umpire Consultant, and Manager/Coach and as a Board member at various times while affiliated with the League from 1967 – 2011. John’s dedication to the youth of Leesburg, northern Virginia and the Little League community is obvious from his over 40 years of volunteering. He helped Central Loudoun Little League prosper as the community grew and helped plan the development of new field complexes and identifying location where the players could compete currently known as Founders Fields. He spent countless hours behind the scenes traveling throughout Virginia training other volunteers. Creating great learning and training environments that produced many exceptional adults involved today. He also instilled the sense of volunteerism and “giving back� to the community, which is seen in his children, and grandchildren who are participating in Little League and youth sports around the country currently. His successes as an administrator and umpire have left their mark on many that have worked beside and with him. This can been seen in his selection to umpire in several State, Southeastern Region and World Series tournaments. He is an Honored member of the Va. Little League Hall of Fame, Dulles Little League and Central Loudoun Little League Hall of Fame. Along with many of his colleagues, is also an honoree in the Virginia Little League Museum. He leaves his family to cherish his memory including his wife Mary Suzanne Murphy, four children, John III �Bunky� and his wife Heide of Ashburn, Brian Keith and his wife Dina of Cheasapeake, VA, Mary Elizabeth “Beth� and her husband Doug Curry of St. Augustine, FL, Susan Patricia Murphy “Pat�of Leesburg, VA; his sister, Kathleen Lundquist of CA, 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

T

he residents living along Red Hill Road make a strong case against erecting two onemillion gallon water storage towers in their long-established rural neighborhood. The tanks are needed to provide improved utility service to the encroaching suburban development and logically should be built in these new subdivisions as just one more piece of infrastructure needed to meet the needs of residents moving in. That’s the way it works in other areas of the county and the incorporated towns. In an area planned for large-scale by-right development, facility planning seldom works out quite so smoothly. The rezoning applications that come with plans for school sites, wider roads and other supporting amenities aren’t in play. The fact that the by-right subdivisions in this Transition Area initially weren’t intended to be hooked up to the central utility system provides additional complications. It also should be noted that the merits of residents’ opposition in this case are different than the more typical fight against, say, cell phone towers. Chances are those living around a cell tower will benefit from the improved service, even if their bay window view is eclipsed for that convenience. The Red Hill Road residents won’t be hooking into the public water system, so there is no chance they’ll benefit from their presence. It could be argued that they’ll be subsidizing their new neighbors’ water bills if the currently proposed location is simply a cheaper alternative than buying suitable land within the service area. There are several paths to a better solution. For example, better proposals could turn up during consideration of engineering alternatives by Loudoun Water’s team. Or talks with Transition Area developers could result in a more creative deal to put the tanks in a neighborhood they will serve. There are options worth exploring, but it will be the Board of Supervisors that must lead the way.

O Dear Editor:

ver the past 11 years Loudoun Cares has become one of Loudoun’s leading nonprofit organizations. Given that I have been the executive director since inception, I fear that sounds a little too self-serving, so let me explain. Loudoun Cares is what it is because of a community that embraces us and supports us. Loudoun Cares has succeeded and will continue to do so because of board members and other unpaid volunteers who have given their valuable time, many talents and personal treasure to the organization. Hundreds of community members have encouraged us and bolstered our efforts through their donations supporting our telephone helpline, Claude Moore Community Builders youth volunteerism, and

I have been a very fortunate man to have the privilege to work for the Loudoun community through Loudoun Cares over the years. That said, I am a firm believer that change is a good thing. I have come to a place where I want to explore new opportunities and challenges. I also believe that the time is ripe for Loudoun Cares to secure new leadership with new and different ideas.

If two words can sum up Loudoun Cares, my choices are collaboration and community. And wouldn’t you know it: Loudoun Cares has worked yet another collaborative partnership— this time with the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. The

two organizations are creatively combining forces to help Loudoun Cares during this transition. Amy Owen, executive director of the community foundation and a well-respected nonprofit professional will be on loan for a portion of her work time to assist Loudoun Cares during this transition. As a result, I have no doubt that you will hear more exciting news from Loudoun Cares in the weeks and months ahead.

— David Dickinson , on Cash Crunch: Early Budget Es timates Bleak

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors’ decision to allow 90 homes on 33 acres to be built on land zoned commercial and crossed by the Dulles Airport’s high-noise zone. This is one of those decisions the all-Republican board made that defies common sense and has serious repercussions in several areas both now and in the future. To build homes inside the buffer zone will guarantee complaints from new homeowners (and forget that they were told of the noise situation) from the very start and all future owners. Eventually this may cause the airport to curtail flights after certain hours and impose other restrictions in its operations. Dulles Airport is a major economic engine for our county and the region and as planes get larger and noisier this buffer zone will be even more important. Your article went on to say, “Converting industrial land to residential use will drive up service demands, such as adding $650,000 in annual school costs, according to the staff report. Planning Director Julie Pastor said permitting houses south of Shreveport Drive, which was designated as a barrier between residential and commercial

“For all the armchair quar terbacks, what exactly has been getting cut? This Republican board has increased the LCPS budget ever y single year. The previous Democrat board actually cut LCPS’ budget year over year. The County spends more ever y year. LCPS spends more ever y year. I’d like to see some real cuts but, so f ar, I haven’t seen the axe swing with any force anywhere in the County.”

It Stinks

Dear Editor: Civil War memorials abound in Loudoun County yet many other war memorials have been left behind. The people behind these efforts are well intentioned; however, I would like to move to memorialize recent wars that would be more robust tourist attractions. A group of us are proposing a new memorial venture which has been designated The American Military Remembrance Park, dedicated to all killed in combat and buried overseas as well as to all veterans past and present. Our theme is that families and friends in these more recent conflicts would gather for events in Loudoun County if we successfully presented a national memorial. An influx of visitors adds to economic development. Grassroots support is what we seek to make our plans noticed. Our attempt is to honor all religions and ethnic Americans who fought for freedom in a solemn, quiet and respectful park location. We are planning a Patio of Remembrance, as well as an amphitheater that can hold special events with a stage to accommodate the U.S. Army Band or the Loudoun Symphony.

DEAL MAY MEAN HIGHER TUITION

Educa t io n

The state budget agreement, if approved as is, does not impact state dollars for K-12 education, but it requires state colleges and universities to find $45 million in each year of the budget. That translates to $4.7 million in reductions for Fairfax-based George Mason University each year and $8.22 million for the state’s community college system each year. The agreement requires schools that have more in-state students—and thus rely more on state aid—to trim their budgets by a smaller percentage than schools that take more out-ofstate students, something the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia advocated. The cuts range from as low as 0.9 percent at Univer-

sity of Virginia at Wise to roughly 6 percent for University of Virginia on the high end. “While it’s hard for these institutions to face cuts at all, we’re grateful for the way the General Assembly decided to do it—very mindfully,” Kirsten Nelson, spokeswoman for SCHEV, said. “Rather than demanding across the board cuts, they took a careful look at it and decided which institutions could sustain higher cuts.” Each school will decide how it will fill that funding gap, whether it can roll back spending or rely on tuition increases. Nelson said SCHEV hopes the schools would not hike tuitions mid-year. “We’re hoping, since the General Assembly has been so cautious and careful, that perhaps the institutions will try not to do mid-year tuition increases. Because those increases are very tough on families.”

JUDGESHIPS DELAYED

Part of the budget agreement includes delaying filling Virginia’s 36 vacant judgeships until Dec. 1 to save $3.2 million. Loudoun Circuit Court’s third judgeship has been vacant

since last December, following the retirement of Judge Thomas D. Horne. Del. Randy Minchew (R-10) said relief for the county’s court system already is months overdue. He sits on the House Courts of Justice Judicial Panel, which interviews and vets candidates for the judgeships, and has advocated in recent years funding for a fourth Loudoun judge to help support a growing court docket. Minchew said the state must “trim our fiscal sails to account for” the revenue shortfall, but holding off on judgeship appointments for “relatively meager savings” isn’t the way to do it. “Our Loudoun Circuit Court docket is badly back-logged with our two resident circuit court judges working overtime. Plus, we have a gifted new circuit court judge whom we will elect this week who is ready, willing and able to start hearing cases immediately thereafter.” Leesburg town attorney Jeanette Irby is expected to be approved as Loudoun Circuit Court’s newest judge by the General Assembly this week.

MORE WORK TO COME

Speaking to the $272 million in savings lawmakers will need to find in the budget next year, Greason sounded hopeful the two chambers and the governor would continue to meet in the middle. “While I’m nervous about the cuts, I’m very encouraged by what just happened this week,” Greason said, adding that he will fight to protect K-12 education funding. “We’ve got to continue to do what we can to drive the best K-12 education system that we can, and obviously funding is a big component of that.” Even with the budget deal all but locked up, state lawmakers still have their work cut out for them this special session as they consider whether to expand Medicaid coverage to thousands of uninsured Virginians. After that issue spurred a political battle that threatened to leave Virginia without an approved budget July 1, this week they will again take up the matter. In a sign that an across-the-aisle deal could be reached even on this divisive issue, Gov. McAuliffe touted a “conservative compromise” by Del. Tom Rust (R-86) called the Virginia Health Care Independence Act. The legislation would extend health care coverage to about 260,000 people and provide a road map for comprehensive reform of the commonwealth’s Medicaid system. “This special session is an opportunity to continue to prove to Virginians that Republicans and Democrats can work together on common sense solutions to make their lives better,” the governor stated. “I am ready to negotiate and sign any proposal that brings our taxpayer dollars home to expand access to care, and I invite my friends in both parties to join me at the table.” n

Coalition Supports Alabama Veteran

T

he Leesburg-based Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes last week awarded a $7,500 grant to the EOD Warrior Foundation for the Home for a Hero Community Campaign to build a home for Aaron Causey. Causey is a combat-wounded, 12-year military veteran and Bronze Star recipient who lives with his wife Kathleen “Kat” and their 8-month old girl in Birmingham, AL. “Aaron and Kat Causey have overcome tremendous challenges as a result of his service to our nation and their resilience, courage and strength is truly remarkable,” David Walker, president and CEO of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, stated in announcing the award. “We are honored to award this grant to provide this needed financial support for the Causeys and we hope others in the community will donate to help them build their home.” The EOD Warrior Foundation is helping to raise funds for the Home for a Hero Community Campaign that has a fundraising goal of $350,000 to build a safe and accessible modified home to meet Causey’s extensive needs. Causey sustained catastrophic injuries while serving as an Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal technician in Afghanistan in September 2011. An improvised explosive device cost him both of his legs and caused significant soft tissue damage. After more than 40 surgeries and two and a half years of recovery and rehabilitation as a patient of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Causey and his family are finally ready to return home. The challenges and changes the Causeys face is chronicled in the award-winning documentary film “The Next Part.” For more information or to make a donation to the Home for a Hero Community Campaign, go to http://weblink.donorperfect.com/ home4ahero. n

uses, could set the stage for additional requests to convert undeveloped industrial land in the area to residential use.” We don’t need 90 new homes and the extra expenses that go with residential expansion, and once you make exceptions to commercial zoning then the floodgates are open to more residential development in this highnoise area. When the county planning director warns against passing this resolution and it is ignored it’s time to have a closer look “under the table and behind the closed doors.” The greedy developers have once again got to our officials and this decision doesn’t pass the smell test. Something is very wrong and it stinks. Emmert Elsea, Leesburg

Dear Editor: This is in response to the letter by Ms. Biberaj concerning the Judicial Selection process. I do thank Ms. Biberaj for her response. I do however disagree with portions of the letter. I also want to add that Delegate Minchew has been incredibly helpful in the increasing of my understanding of the selection process. Despite the assertion made that the public can voice their opinion, it seems that the voice is miniscule and hampered. There is no public announcement, that I am aware of, when the Bar forwards its approved applicants to the 20th Circuit legislators or the Assembly. I am not aware of any public invitation to the questioning of the candidates by the 20th Circuit legislators. It is my understanding that the notes of the interview are not available through the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. The public is not allowed to see the report from the local Bar or the applications of the candidates. This meets the criteria for a very secretive selection process. I recently spoke with a state senator’s aide and was informed that occasionally a candidate will drop by the senator’s office to introduce themselves. I found this rather odd in that on the surface this seems like an attempt to win a legislator’s vote; this indicates that the judicial selection process has become a contest as to who is the most politically connected not the most qualified. A judge wields enormous power during a trial and in all legal matters; this includes what evidence to admit and what discovery to grant. If the judge has a bias and cannot control that bias it will impact the final outcome. Judicial selection is critical and should be transparent. The current system could result in favoritism shown by a judge to the attorneys who approved their application. The entire process of judicial selection should be open to the public and scrutinized. The latest issue with Senator Phillip Puckett illustrates that the selection process is flawed and can be manipulated. He allegedly stepped down to allow his daughter to be appointed as a Juvenile Court judge, but an investigation discovered that he was awarded a position on the State Tobacco Commission prior to stepping down. The public is left to wonder if he was promised by certain members of the Courts of Justice that if he stepped down his daughter would be appointed as well. If it were not for the media covering the story, the deal would have been completed. The intent of my letter was not to cast aspersions upon the Bar but to bring attention to the flaws with the selection process— mainly its lack of transparency. In closing, I have learned from Ms. Mary Felch that Jeanette Irby will be interviewed at 3 p.m. Sept. 17 by the Senate and House Courts of Justice for the vacancy in the 20th Circuit. It would be beneficial if the citizens knew the time of this interview and that Ms. Irby is the candidate being interviewed. Gentry Nalley, Ashburn
