WEXTON OUSTS COMSTOCK IN THE 10th Democrat Rides Local Wave of Voter Discontent to Victory In District That Has Been Held By Republicans Since 1981 BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

State Sen. Jennifer Wexton (D-Loudoun) overcame two-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-10th) Nov. 6 and will become the first Democrat in 38 years to hold that seat. Wexton’s victory was part of a good night for Democrats across Northern Virginia, as the party also saw two incumbent legislators (U.S. Reps. Gerry Connolly and Don Beyer) win easy victories. With 212 of 213 precincts reporting Wednesday morning, Wexton polled 202,557 votes (56.2 percent) to 157,561 (43.7 percent) for Comstock. Health care and gun-violence prevention were critical issues in the election, Wexton said on Election Day. “I think that people are ready to send representatives to Congress who are going to work across the aisle, work to get results and not engage in all the partisan bickering,” she said. Wexton, who from 2001 through 2005 served as an assistant commonwealth’s attorney in Loudoun County, was elected to the state Senate in January 2014 to serve the unexpired term of Democrat Mark Herring, who had been elected to his first term as state attorney general. Wexton then was re-elected for a full four-year term in 2015. Comstock, an attorney and former aide to her predecessor, U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-10th), had represented the 34th

District in the Virginia House of Delegates before being elected to Congress in 2014. She had touted her work on Metro reforms and combating the opioid epidemic and human trafficking. Perhaps knowing that the writing was on the wall, Comstock was elusive on Election Day. Wexton, a Washington-area native who now lives in Leesburg, said the

campaign boiled down to voter dissatisfaction. “People are ready for a change,” she said. Comstock repeatedly voted against the Affordable Care Act, was “bought and paid-for by the gun lobby” and did nothing to stop gun violence; and has not stood up to President Trump, instead vot-

ing with him 98 percent of the time, Wexton said. “That’s outside the values of this district,” she said. Voter turnout was up throughout the district and many more 18- to 29-yearolds had voted absentee, Wexton said Continued on Page 15

The Vienna Town Council on Oct. 29 took a major step toward the building of a new Vienna Police Headquarters by awarding Dewberry Architects Inc. an up-to-$1,625,953 contract for architectural and engineering services. The design contract’s price includes a 5-percent contingency allowance of $77,400. Six firms submitted proposals and town officials interviewed three before selecting Dewberry. The town also worked with Orr Partners to negotiate the contract’s scope and cost. The new police station will cost an estimated $15.7 million overall and is slated to be finished in 2022. Town officials will finance the architectural-and-engineering contract from 2018 bonds and construction of the station from 2020 bonds. When soliciting architectural firms for the project, town officials specifically sought companies with experience designing police stations, said Vienna Police Chief James Morris. The Town Council in March 2013 agreed to pay Faith Baptist Church $489,200 for a home adjacent to the police station at 114 Locust St., S.W. The town took possession of the property in summer 2015 after the daughter of church members living in the house graduated from high school. Part of the new police station will be built on that now-residential parcel, so the project will require a rezoning by the Town Council. Town officials must decide whether officers will occupy that new wing while the existing station then is renovated, or if the department should relocate to a different place so the whole site can be reworked, Morris said. “It’s definitely easier to build, I think, if you tear down the station,” he said. The new station also would feature conference rooms that could be used for community meetings and, when necessary, converted into an emergency command center, Morris told the Sun Gazette in 2016. The existing police station, located at 215 Center St., S., was built in 1994 and was too small from the beginning, town officials said. Increasing demands for computer-server space and other equipment made the station even more cramped, they said. Vienna police have had to wait for their new station, as town officials decided to give first priority to the Vienna Community Center’s expansion and renovation. The center reopened to the public in September 2017, but the contractor and town officials still are ironing out final “punch list” details. Council Allocates Funds for Unfinished Projects: Vienna Town Council members on Oct. 29 approved nearly a quarter-million-dollars’ worth of spending for uncompleted projects and budget

carry-forward items. The Council OK’d $140,413 worth of purchase orders for unfinished projects, including $75,000 for paving, $30,000 for pavement marking, $16,750 for strategic planning, $14,863 for landfill fees and $3,800 to pay for an office for the deputy public-works director. The town was unable to complete about $100,000 worth of paving and pavement marking work earlier this year because of poor weather, said Finance Director Marion Serfass. Council members also approved $109,250 worth of carry-forward items, including $38,250 for a zoning-code update, $30,000 to restore snow equipment, $15,000 to fully fund traffic signals, $11,000 for irrigation along Maple Avenue and $15,000 to cover six months’ spending for programming on the town’s cable-television network. Town officials sought only a half-year’s funding for the cable-television item because that project likely will not begin until this coming January, Serfass said. Vienna Council OKs Extra Spending for Utility Marking: The Vienna Town Council on Oct. 29 unanimously agreed to spend an additional $180,000 for utility marking during fiscal year 2019. The town will ride a pair of Arlington County contracts with Double H Locates and Pinpoint Underground LLC. Those contracts will take effect Nov. 1. In addition, the Council authorized an additional $1,095 for Double H Locates to pay for work performed during fiscal 2018, which ended June 30. Council OKs Contracts for Concrete Repairs, Street Repaving, De-icing Salt: Citing difficulties in arranging for Vienna’s general on-call maintenance and roadway contractor to handle small work orders, the Vienna Town Council on Oct. 29 voted 7-0 to spend up to $617,745 with U.S. Concrete and Paving Inc. to handle those tasks. Town officials selected the winning contractor from among four vendors. Council member Howard Springsteen noted there had been a huge disparity between the competing vendors cost estimates. “This is a prime example of why you do competitive bidding,” Springsteen said. “The difference was $400,000.” • Council members also unanimously approved spending an additional $102,000 with Arthur Construction for street milling and overlay projects. The extra spending, which will supplement the $480,000 already approved, will be covered by $75,000 allotted for slurry sealing, which public-works crews have not scheduled for this year, and $27,000 in allocated funds that were not included in the Council’s July consent agenda. • The Vienna Town Council at its Oct. 29 meeting also agreed to pay $114,000 to Mid-Atlantic Salt to provided de-icing salt.


Cedar Park Shopping Center May Get Makeover Owners of Vienna Parcel Taking Proposal to Architectural Panel on Friday BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Owners of Cedar Park Shopping Center in southeast Vienna are planning a series of upgrades to spruce up the commercial area’s appearance and improve prospects for its tenants. The Vienna Board of Architectural Review (BAR) will review the proposals during a work session Nov. 9 at 8 a.m. at Town Hall. The applicant subsequently will seek approval of the proposal at a future regular BAR meeting. According to a report prepared by John W. Lister Architects, the project is intended to upgrade customers’ experiences both from the street and parking area; address accessibility issues; improve visibility for the center’s tenants; and offer better signage to enhance curb appeal of the center. The 80,673-square-foot shopping center, located at 131 Patrick St., S.E., is owned by GRI Cedar Park LLC. According to Fairfax County tax records, the company bought the 7.21-acre property from Sydney Albrittain for $13,766,000 in 2007. County officials this year assessed the site’s building and land at nearly $12.35 million, and its total tax bill, including a special-tax district levy, totaled

a little over $161,000. The building features about 55,000 square feet of retail space, 10,000 square feet of second-floor office space and a 10,000-square-foot basement with storage areas. The project is designed to overcome several of the site’s limitations, including the shopping area’s location steep down a hill from Cedar Lane; its large parking lot with minimal landscaping; tenant spaces with low ceilings; some tenant areas that

are not readily visible; the building’s second-floor office areas; and unlighted signage done in the town’s previously common style of white lettering on a brown background. According to project backers, the upgrades would produce in improved “small-town” feel at the shopping center, build upon its existing construction materials and architectural style, use classic design elements and enhance the site’s accessibility.

New Capital One Headquarters Soars

470-Foot Tall Building in Tysons Will Accommodate 3,000 Workers BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Capital One’s new 470-foottall headquarters in Tysons is the tallest occupied building in the Washington, D.C., region, but its flexible work spaces, copious employee amenities and artistic touches make it more than just a glass tower. Bank officials on Nov. 2 showed media members the building’s innovative features from basement to peak. The new tower will house about 3,000 employees, twothirds of whom already have begun working in the building. Capital One will move the remainder into the skyscraper by year’s end and hold a grand opening ceremony in December, said Barry Mark, head of design and construction. The 31-story, mixed-use tower has a little less than 1 million square feet of space, including 675,000 square feet for the bank’s associates; 124,000 square feet for training, conferences and dining; and 25,000 square feet of restaurant space. Three restaurants will occupy the ground level: City Works, Taco Bamba Taqueria and Starbucks. Bonstra/Haresign Architects, HKS Inc. and CallisonRTKL Inc. designed the building, which was built by general contractor Davis/Gilford Construction. One of the project’s tower cranes was 586 feet tall, the highest ever erected across the Washington area. Construction crews removed 275,000 cubic yards of soil from the foundation hole, used 110,000 cubic yards of concrete and installed 2.5 million linear feet of cabling and 30,450 light fixtures. The building’s crown, accessible after a series of elevator transfers, is open to the sky and surrounds several stories’ worth of mechanical equipment. Visitors tread metal-grid walkways – the kind that make some dogs hug the deck and refuse to budge – to reach a glass panel with a sightseeing telescope mounted on a sturdy pedestal. Overhead and to the left is a ceremonial white I-beam emblazoned with Capital One’s logo and autographed by dozens of people. The catwalk around the top edge is several feet below a wide 4

metal border dotted with metal posts where davit arms are inserted, so that window-washing crews may be lowered safely to their work zones. “It’s like the Golden Gate Bridge,” said Jon Griffith, senior manager for workplace solutions. “You never stop cleaning.” In addition to elevators, the building features “zipper” stairs between floors that encourage employee collaboration. A much larger, wood-bedecked “monument stair” allows those attending conferences to walk down one level to obtain food. An outdoor terrace area several floors up offers an enticing place to relax and the building’s eateries offer a wide array of fare, plus some cooking demonstrations. Flexibility was the byword for the headquarters’ work areas. Officials took guests to a typical office floor in the building, which had orange-themed and work stations that with the press of a button allowed employees to work either standing or sitting. Various kinds of collaborative spaces also are available throughout the building. “Folks can choose how they work and where they work throughout the day,” said Stefanie Spurlin, vice president for workplace solutions. Glassed-off, cubbyhole-style phone rooms offer comfortable-looking chairs for making calls and unobstructed views of the surrounding region. Elsewhere in the building, clusters of “phone booth” rooms offer places to make private calls or work in solitude. A FedEx store in the building gives employees mailing options and a tech-support center helps them troubleshoot equipment problems. Art is on view throughout the building. Some mobile-style sculptures in the right light cast a rainbow of colors into an open space, while a string sculpture captures a similar spectrum of shades. The building’s glass-curtain façade lets in plenty of natural light and a cafeteria skylight allows seating areas far inside the building to receive light from outdoors. The skyscraper likely will earn a Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and

Environmental Design (LEED) standards, surpassing the Silver standard sought by Fairfax County for new buildings in Tysons. Capital One also offers receptacles throughout the building for trash, recycling and composting. “It’s important to our associates to have that environmental awareness,” said Erin Mical, sewww.sungazette.news

A nearby regulation-size high-school gymnasium will host league play for basketball and volleyball and its rear wall

shows a photo of George Mason University’s men’s basketball team playing in the Final Four in 2006. Seeking to give guests arriving by bus a good impression, and avoid traffic congestion in front of the building, Capital One had a tall-ceilinged bus terminal built into the parking garage’s interior behind the front lobby. Development continues apace on Capital One’s 24-acre campus. The bank will break ground next February on another office tower, which will house about 3,200 associates when completed at the beginning of 2023. The Virginia Department of Transportation’s Jones Branch Connector, which will span the Beltway between Jones Branch Drive and Route 123 on the Capital One side, is well into construction and will offer one lane in each direction by early next year. Construction cranes fill the sky at Block C on the campus, which soon will have a Wegmans grocery store; a 1.2-acre public sky park with a beer garden, dog park, bocce courts and amphitheater; and the Capital One Center, which will host conferences and performing-arts events at a 1,600-seat main hall and a 300-seat black-box theater. The Capital One Center “is going to be a true gem for Tysons on the cultural-arts front,” Mark said.

Our View: The Democracy We Deserve? This is being written prior to the results of the Nov. 6 election being known, but for the purposes of this discussion, it really doesn’t matter who emerged victorious, either at the micro or macro levels. The good news is, it’s finally all over. Perhaps the bad news is, with the 2018 mid-term election out of the way, the jockeying for the 2020 presidential election is about to start in earnest. Lord help us all. Among the three Northern Virginia congressional elections, two were foregone conclusions – Democrats Don Beyer in the 8th and Gerald Connolly in the 11th never faced serious threats in districts that have proved in recent years impregnable to anyone but a Democrat. That left the 10th District, where Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock and Democratic challenger Jennifer Wexton went at it, often through surrogates, in a campaign that, if it had to be summed up in a single word, “demoralizing” would do just fine. We didn’t hear much at all, particularly in the last month, in terms of positive messaging from either candidate. There were a few ads where Wexton stared – in a look

perfected in “Stepford Wives” – into the camera and made some vague promises about the future. Even that, though a tad unnerving the umpteen times we came across it, was far superior to the ridiculously bad and insulting (to viewers’ intelligence if nothing else) third-party ads that dominated the airwaves in the weeks leading to Election Day. Did the consultants who put these ads together, and filled their pockets with cash for doing so, care that the 10th District has an electorate far too savvy for screeds being thrown at them on TV and radio? Probably not. Neither Wexton nor Comstock, nor the outside interest groups supporting them, probably did their causes any favors with such amateurish messaging. But that’s par for the course in the current political environment, which is toxic not just on one side, but on all. Let’s just call it as we see it: Unless and until a large swath of the American electorate grows up and begins to treat governance as something more than reality-showcum-blood-sport, the candidates and the messaging will only continue to sink further into the gutter. Alas, it’s likely we haven’t even come close to hitting rock bottom.

Thanks for Support of Nurse Practitioners Editor: This has been a significant year for nurse practitioners (NPs) in Virginia. In the General Assembly, legislation that provides full practice authority for NPs was passed, and is on its final path toward implementation in early 2019. With Nurse Practitioner Week being celebrated Nov. 11-17, I want to personally thank Virginians for their support of this bill and our profession. Approximately 7,000 NPs assess, diagnose and treat patients in various

health-care settings throughout the commonwealth. The legislation passed this year will allow these highly educated professionals (after five years of supervised practice) to then work to the full extent of their specific training, state licensure and national board certification in Virginia without a further mandated contract of oversight by a collaborating physician. Our professional obligation and capacity for appropriate consultation of or referrals to our esteemed physician colleagues remains intact.

Removal of this restriction will allow more flexible health-care models and improve access to care for Virginians. While Virginia is not the first state to make progress toward full-practice authority, it is a significant step. Valerie Wrobel, MSN, RN, AGNPBC Vienna Wrobel is president of the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners, Northern Virginia Region.

Vienna Commission Seeks a New Name

The Vienna Community Enhancement Commission began as the Beautification Commission and later changed its name to reflect that its objectives were more than just superficial. Group members now are seeking to rename the body again to the Vienna Conservation and Sustainability Commission to highlight the organization’s increased focus on environmentally friendly measures. According to town documents, the renamed commission’s purpose would be to “develop, promote and coordinate voluntary efforts to improve the

appearance of the commercial, industrial, public and residential areas of the town; introduce and improve environment and sustainability initiatives by the town, local developments businesses and residences; and educate citizens about environmental initiatives to benefit and enhance the town.” The Vienna Town Council on Oct. 29 agreed to hold a Nov. 19 public hearing to discuss the group’s proposed name change. Such decisions usually are unanimous, but Council members disagreed over whether the town should hold a

public hearing even when one was not mandated in this case. Council members Douglas Noble and Howard Springsteen argued holding a public hearing was a good opengovernment move, but Council member Carey Sienicki said the commission already was doing sustainability work and added the $400 that would need to be spent to advertise the public hearing could be put to better use elsewhere. The final vote was 5-1-1, with Sienicki voting nay and member Pasha Majdi abstaining. – Brian Trompeter

Report: Remediation of Great Falls Groundwater Contamination a Success FREE In-Home Consultation Expert Installation We Beat Next Day Blinds Everyday Prices! This map shows wells near Walker Road and Georgetown Pike in central Great Falls. A Great Falls Citizens Association special committee recently issued a report saying efforts to clean up groundwater contamination from two former gas stations at that corner have proved successful.

BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Efforts to clean up groundwater contamination from two former gas stations at Walker Road and Georgetown Pike in Great Falls have proved successful, according a final report released by the Great Falls Citizens Association (GFCA). The association’s Special Committee on Groundwater Contamination, created in 2013, for the last five years has overseen cleanup efforts stemming from the former Exxon and Shell service stations. The committee especially was concerned about the presence in groundwater of MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether), an oxygenating chemical that had been added to gasoline until 2006, when it was replaced by ethanol. According to Wikipedia, MTBE and other fuel oxygenates help gasoline burn more smoothly and reduce the amount of carbon monoxide and other air pollutants. MTBE got into the groundwater in Great Falls from the service stations’ vapor-recovery equipment, said GFCA committee co-chairman Glen Sjoblom. More than 1,000 such MTBE cases have been reported nationwide, he said. “Ours was not the worst, but it was pretty significant mainly because of all the private wells around,” he said. “Those were what was at risk.” The former Exxon station, located in the intersection’s southwest quadrant, since has been replaced by a TD Bank branch. The station’s owner, Fairfax Petroleum, and environmental consulting firm Kleinfelder since August 2014 have conducted soil-vapor extraction and groundwater pumping and treatment at that site. The companies have finished cleaning about 8.5 million gallons of groundwater and removing about 350 pounds of

MTBE by pumping the water through charcoal-filled canisters and releasing it at the surface, the report stated. The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) threshold for MTBE in groundwater is 343 parts per billion and while measurements at one point near the Oliver Estates subdivision south of the Exxon station initially were much higher than that end point, those concentrations since have been reduced to 1 percent of DEQ’s limit, the report read. Kleinfelder attributed some of the MTBE contamination to the former Shell service station across Walker Road, which since has been converted into an Exxon station. Samples of shallow groundwater near the Shell station contained slightly more than DEQ’s threshold of 5,000 parts per billion, according to GFCA’s report. DEQ officials directed parent company Motiva Enterprises LLC to examine the contamination and recommend remediation measures. Consultants for Motiva said those MTBE levels in the past year have been reduced to 2,000 parts per billion. The DEQ has authorized Kleinfelder to end groundwater-treatment efforts for the former Exxon station, but will have Motiva continue sampling water around the former Shell site. Kleinfelder will continue its postcleanup monitoring for two more years and notify the public when this work is completed, the GFCA’s report read. “There are no private wells likely to have detectable MTBE in the future as a result of the gasoline leaks at these stations,” the three-page report concluded. “We had a good relationship not only with DEQ but with their contractor, Kleinfelder,” Sjoblom said of the yearslong remediation efforts. The civic group also benefited from research done by three experts, who lent their services for free, he said.

Supervisors OK a 5-Home Cluster Plan on G’town Pike

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Oct. 30 approved a special exception that will allow developer Peter Fitzgerald Jr. to build a five-house cluster subdivision at Georgetown Pike and Saigon Road in McLean.

Fairfax County supervisors on Oct. 31 unanimously approved a five-house cluster subdivision on Georgetown Pike in McLean and, in response to concerns from neighbors, will not build an associated trail on the property until parking issues have been settled. The 5.39-acre property at 7327 Georgetown Pike now has four lots with a total of three single-family houses, two of which share a driveway directly accessing Georgetown Pike. The developer, Peter Fitzgerald Jr., obtained a special exception from county supervisors to build houses on five lots, with four of the lots clustered on the site’s southern portion and the fifth in the northeast corner. Under a second option available to the developer, an existing home on Lot 4 of the property would remain. The arrangement will preserve trees, make way for three stormwater-detention ponds along Georgetown Pike, allow for construction of part of the county’s trail system, permit removal and management of invasive plant species on the property, facilitate creation of a coordinated stormwater system and allow implementation of “green” building provisions, county officials said. The development also will eliminate the current driveway onto Georgetown Pike and instead permit residents in all five houses to access that roadway via a private street off of Saigon Road. “This is a much better layout than the by-right subdivision that was on the verge of approval,” said Keith Martin, the applicant’s attorney. “It results in a lot more tree preservation and the removal of all driveway accesses along Georgetown Pike . . . You don’t want to be turning into or coming out of a driveway up on this section of Georgetown Pike. It’s very dangerous.” The developer would set aside 1.45

www.sungazette.news

acres of the site as open space, which would have 17,000 square feet worth of tree-preservation area. The county eventually will construct a 6-foot-wide asphalt trail along the site’s frontage on Georgetown Pike and the northernmost 100 feet of Saigon Road on the property’s edge. The trail, which will be facilitated with funding and an easement from the developer, will be “field located” to save as many trees as possible, county officials said. Nearby residents had expressed concerns about the trail, because users of Scotts Run Nature Preserve across Georgetown Pike, now park along that roadway and Saigon Road and then walk across to the wooded nature area. “They are really worried that a new trail on this side will result in an attractive nuisance,” Martin said. The neighborhood has become inundated with parking from Scotts Run and “the community is very concerned that this will just be even more of an invitation for people to come in,” agreed Supervisor John Foust (D-Dranesville). “Until we either address parking in Scotts Run or we connect the trail to get it from being a trail to nowhere, we would agree to postpone the [trail’s] construction.” The cluster subdivision was inches from the finish line at the Board of Supervisors meeting when Martin asked about the possible return of trail funds to the applicant if that pathway were never built. Martin worried about the money’s disposition, saying, “I’ve seen this before. It goes into a black hole.” “Wow!” said Foust, who seemed taken aback by Martin’s last-minute inquiry. “This is not a good time to be talking about this, to tell you the truth.” The developer’s contributions will be put into a contingency fund to build trails in Dranesville. The county then will decide when the Fitzgerald site’s trail will be built, Foust said. “This is what’s in the agreement,” he said.

McLean/Great Falls Notes GREAT FALLS FIRM WINS ‘FRIENDS OF TREES’ HONOR: The Fairfax County

Tree Commission on Oct. 23 presented its 2018 Friends of Trees Award to Chuck Langpaul Jr. and Tony Smith of Creekstone Communities, a Great Falls-based home-building company. The award, bestowed at the Fairfax County Government Center, was the first ever awarded to a developer, said Tree Commission chairman Robert Vickers, who represents Dranesville District. Creekstone Communities has been building custom homes in Fairfax County for more than 25 years. During that time, it has constructed more than 100 homes in more than a dozen locations, all within Great Falls. The developments have ranged in size from individual single-family homes to larger projects of up to 30 houses, Tree Commission leaders said in a media statement. Creekstone has been extremely sensitive to Great Falls’ unique rural character and the desire of local residents to preserve it, they said. Commission leaders quoted from the company’s mission statement, which affirms the builder’s commitment to the environment: “We design your home to the land, ensuring pleasing aesthetics in each individual community. We selectively clear our home sites, taking great care to save as many of the trees and other natural characteristics that add value and beauty to each site.” Creekstone continues to meet this commitment to tree preservation and planting, commission leaders said. Most of the company’s homes are built on lots of 1 to 5 acres in size. Rather than clear almost all trees on a site, leaving only enough along the perimeter to meet requirements of the county’s tree-preservation ordinance, Creekstone goes out of its way to disturb as little of the natural terrain as necessary and strives to leave as many matures trees as possible within the limits of clearing, they said. “For its continued dedication to tree preservation and planting during the home development process, Creekstone Communities is well-deserving of a Fairfax County Friends of Trees Award,” the commission’s statement read.

Connolly Manhandles Opponents, Wins 6th Term BRIAN TROMPETER

The results never really were in doubt, but now they’re confirmed: Voters on Nov. 6 gave U.S. Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-11th) a sixth term. With 161 of 163 precincts reporting Tuesday night, Connolly was far outpacing Republican Jeff Dove Jr. and Libertarian Stevan Porter, earning 70.38 percent of the vote to Dove’s 27.62 percent and Porter’s 1.86 percent. Connolly, who previously had served as Providence District supervisor and chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, was at ease shortly after 7 a.m. on Election Day when he came to cast his ballot at Fairfax Circle Baptist Church in Merrifield. The congressman, wearing a colorful Uncle Sam tie, shook hands with voters and hugged wife Catherine and daughter Caitlin in photos. His wife wore a square “Vote for My Husband” that she’d had made for Connolly’s first election in 1995. Get-out-the-vote efforts this fall encouraged participation by “a lot of new

voters, a lot of infrequent voters and a lot of younger voters, but we’re doing well among seniors as well,” Connolly said. Health care was the single biggest issue that resonated with voters during this election and it hurt Republicans, Connolly said. “They voted in the House 60 timesplus to repeal Obamacare and public opinion in that time has shifted,” he said. “People actually like the reforms and the protections against pre-existing conditions that are contained in the Affordable Care Act.” Connolly predicted Democrats would gain “north of 30, perhaps considerably north of 30” seats, enough to regain the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, but said no net gains or losses would be a good night for Democrats in the U.S. Senate elections. “The math is just very difficult for Democrats this year,” he said. “We’re defending 26 seats, Republicans are defending nine, and [some] of those 26 seats are in deep-red states that Trump won. So holding our own is actually a victory. But we are also going to do very well in governors’ races. There could be a Midwest

Fairfax County voters on Nov. 6 overwhelmingly approved $182 million worth of public-safety bonds that will bolster infrastructure at local police, fire and court facilities. With all but one of 243 precincts reporting, voters had supported the bond referendum by a more than 2-to-1 margin, with 322,604 voting in the affirmative and 140,827voting against. The referendum will result in $73 million going to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, $59 million to the county’s police department and $50 million to the county’s court system and Adult Detention Center. Fire officials will renovate four fire stations that are at least 37 years old. Those stations and their funding include Mount

Vernon and Fairview ($16 million each) and Gunston and Seven Corners ($13 million apiece). The department also will receive $15 million to renovate, expand or replace one of eight volunteer fire stations that is at least four decades old. The Fairfax County Police Department will be allotted $59 million, which it will use to renovate and expand Mason District Station ($23 million), renovate and upgrade the county’s Criminal Justice Academy ($18 million) and renovate, expand or replace the police-evidence-storage building ($18 million). The bond also will supply $45 million to replace major building systems and renovate outdated security systems in all three wings of the county’s Adult Detention Center and an additional $5 million

while campaigning outside Jennie Dean Elementary School in Manassas. With polls looking as though Democrats would seize control of the U.S. House of Representatives and Republicans would maintain their majority in the U.S. Senate, Wexton said it still was possible for lawmakers to work together constructively. “I’ve spent the last four and a half years in the General Assembly in the state Senate and still managed to pass over 40 bills, despite being in the minority,” she said. “I’ve done that by reaching across the aisle to find solutions and work on legislation that helps kids and families.” Wexton will join Connolly (D-11th)

and Beyer (D-8th) in the three-member Northern Virginia delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives. Campaigning on Election Day, Connolly suggested time had run out for Republicans in the sprawling 10th District, which runs from McLean west and south and has becoming increasingly Democratic-leaning. “I think the incumbent is simply out of step with her district,” said Connolly, en route Tuesday to winning a sixth term. “The district has changed. She’s out of step on guns, she’s out of step on taxes, she’s out of step on women’s rights.” Wexton will become the first Democrat to hold the 10th District seat since Joseph Fisher, who occupied it from 1975 to 1980. Since the district’s creation in the early 1950s, the only other occupants have been Republicans: Joel Broyhill, Frank Wolf and Comstock.

Builder Confidence Remains at Summer Level

Featured Property of the Week

Showplace Living on 5 Lush Acres Property Offers Manicured Grounds, Pond and Pool Area

Our quest for the best in local real estate this week takes us to the Finger Lakes Estates community in bucolic Great Falls, where a custom estate home on over five acres awaits our inspection. A refreshing change from the usual colonial, the home offers 6,000 square feet of living space spread across three levels, perfectly proportioned to be an effective venue for a large gathering while also providing special spaces for daily living. And outside, the verdant and manicured grounds are augmented by a pool with poolhouse, ensuring that highgloss living continues indoors and out. The property currently is on the market, listed at $2,999,000 by Dianne Van Volkenburg of Long & Foster Real Estate. From the moment we are welcomed into the stunning, soaring foyer, it’s abundantly clear that TLC has been lavished on this home. And it’s a trend that continues through the formal rooms and the family quarters, with features that include cherry hardwoods, quartz countertops and an abundance of natural sunlight. Main-level features include a large living room (with the first of the home’s four fireplaces), a light-filled dining room and a kitchen area that will do any

serious chef proud. The family room is another delight, with cherry-paneled walls that lead to a screened porch with serene views of the pool and private yard. The main level also boasts a master retreat with sitting room (featuring gas fireplace), copious closet space and a luxurious bath. A professional office is located above the garage, connected to the main house by a breezeway, and offers a reception area, full office, conference room and full bath. It also could be put to use as a showstopper guest suite. Four bedrooms and three full baths are found on the upper level, while the lower level includes another bedroom, recreation room, game room and bonus areas to be allocated as you see fit. It’s a unique property in just the right

location. Why not make it your own? Articles are prepared by the Sun Gazette’s real estate advertising department on behalf of clients. For information on the home, contact the listing agent.

Builder confidence in the market for newly-built single-family homes rose one point to 68 in October on the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. Confidence levels have held in the high 60s since June. “Builders are motivated by solid housing demand, fueled by a growing economy and a generational low for unemployment,” said NAHB chairman Randy Noel, a custom home builder from LaPlace, La. “Builders are also relieved that lumber prices have declined for three straight months from elevated levels earlier this summer, but they need to manage supply-side costs to keep home prices affordable.” But challenges remain. “Favorable economic conditions and demographic tailwinds should continue to support demand, but housing affordability has become a challenge due to ongoing price and interest rate increases,” said NAHB chief economist Robert Dietz. “Unless housing affordability stabilizes, the market risks losing additional momentum as we head into 2019.” Derived from a monthly survey that NAHB has been conducting for 30 years, the index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average” or “low to very low.” Scores for each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good than poor. The HMI index measuring current sales conditions rose one point to 74 and the component gauging expectations in the next six months increased a single point to 75. Meanwhile, the metric charting buyer traffic registered a four-point uptick to 53. Looking at the three-month moving averages for regional HMI scores, the Northeast rose three points to 57 and the South edged up one point to 71. The West held steady at 74 and the Midwest fell two points to 57.

Marymount’s New President Works on To-Do List A moderate but steady increase in enrollment, more emphasis on online degree programs and addressing antiquated information-technology infrastructure are among the items atop the to-do list of Marymount University’s new president. But just as important, Irma Becerra said, was living up to the ideals set forth by the institution’s founders seven decades ago. “We want students to know that they can make a difference in the world,” Becerra said at an Oct. 31 meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Arlington. An engineer and education administrator who was born in Cuba, raised in Puerto Rico and spent much of her previous career in Florida, Becerra in July became Marymount’s seventh president, succeeding Matthew Shank. The university was founded in 1950 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM), an order of Roman Catholic nuns, to provide a practical education for women underpinned by the liberal arts. Becerra said the effort was ahead of its time, and while the institution has evolved into a full university serving

both sexes, its students remain its most valuable asset. “They are smart, they are eloquent, they are confident. I’m so proud of them,” Becerra said. The university’s current enrollment of about 4,000 could rise to “maybe 8,000” in coming years, counting increases both in on-campus and online students, Becerra said. It’s a number that would still be small, but give the university more flexibility in finding its niche in the education arena. “It’s become a hyper-competitive environment,” the new president said of the competition to land students. “Everybody’s trying to understand where their Marymount president Irma Becerra speaks to members of the Kiwanis Club of Arlington on Oct. 31. place in the market is.” PHOTO BY DICK BARR Marymount has embarked on a strategic-planning effort, certificate programs, and em“She’s really made a great launch of a $40 million capital which aims to wrap up in early barking on a $6 million update presence,” he said. campaign, redevelopment of springtime – around the same to the computers and other inFrom its founding until 2001, the university’s urban campus in time as Becerra’s March 28 inau- frastructure that the university Marymount’s presidency had Ballston and expansion of acaguration.

The designation is part of a joint effort of the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on the Educational Opportunity for Military Children. To qualify for a Purple Star, schools must have a trained staff member designated as a primary point of contact for military families and local military communities. Schools also must demonstrate their commitment to providing resources and programming on issues important to military families, such as transitions and academic planning. The schools selected for the designation are “leading by example and working to create supportive learning environments,” Gov. Northam said in a statement. Flint Hill was among 14 Fairfax County schools to receive the honor.

Natalie Bardach had a plan that became a championship approach for the Marshall High School senior. On purpose, Bardach started the 6D North Region girls cross country champiCROSS COUNTRY o n s h i p race on Nov. 1 a little slow so she could save energy for a finishing kick on the 2.98-mile Burke Lake Park course. In the final 400 meters, Bardach did just that, rallying from third to first, winning in 18:03. Yorktown’s Piper Dean (second in 18:05) and Washington-Lee’s Eva Smith-Perry (third in 18:06) had passed Bardach just before the final 400. “When those two runners went past me, I told myself not to give up,” Bardach said. “I knew I had a good kick and I could get past them again. We do workouts on this course during the summer. I practice the last 400 meters just like this race went. Those practices worked to my advantage.” Continued on Page 25

November 8, 2018

The 62 points tied a team record for the most in a single game, achieved two other times – in 2012 also against Maret and 2008 against Sidwell Friends.

FOOTBALL ROUNDUP Against Maret in the first half, Jordan Houston had scoring runs of 10 and 25 yards, Justice Ellison had a 25yard TD run, Miles Thompson threw touchdown passes of 15 yards to Zach Garcia and 50 to Christian Turner, Trey Rucker returned a punt 60 yards for a TD and Justin Duenkel booted six extra points.

their nine regular-season opponents 407-76 with three shutouts and averaged 45.2 points per game. Flint Hill outscored its four MAC rivals, 192-13. Thompson was 5 of 9 passing for 96 yards and rushed for 47 more. Houston ran for 79 yards and Bryson Robertson and Jaylin Hertz had scoring runs. Turner had two catches for 64 yards.

The 11-week regular season ended Nov. 2 on what was another rainy Friday evening. Of those 11 weeks, it rained in some fashion seven times. Numerous contests were postponed on three consecutive Fridays because of thunderstorms. So some dry and storm-free Fridays would be welcomed with three teams from the Sun Gazette coverage areas in the Virginia High School League playoffs, with two private schools in other postseason competitions. In Arlington, the Yorktown Patriots will be a low seed in the 6D Northern Region playoffs. Yorktown’s success will depend on how effective it passes the ball. The Patriots likely will have to win high-scoring games in order to advance. In the eight-team 6D playoffs from the Vienna area are the Madison Warhawks and Marshall Statesmen. Madison will be a favorite to reach at least the semifinals if not win the championship, likely needing to knock off defending champion Westfield along the way. Marshall is a longshot to reach the title game, but could make the semis. On the private-school scene, the undefeated Flint Hill Huskies (9-0) of Oakton are huge favorites to repeat as Division I state champions. Flint Hill hasn’t been challenged in any games this fall, and could face a couple of repeat opponents in the state playoffs. Arlington’s Bishop O’Connell enters the four-team Washington Catholic Athletic Conference Metro Division playoffs as the No. 4 seed, but not necessarily a huge longshot. It will take its best football of the season, but an O’Connell title is possible. It would be nice to have dry weather to play and watch those games.

Conference tournament champions. See more on that match at www.insidenova. com/sports/fairfax, as well as the Division I state-private school tourney that is this week. The Huskies are defending state champions and top seed. “This is where we want to be right now, with the ultimate goal of winning the state,” Flint Hill coach Carrol DeNure said. “This is what we call triplecrown week.” Flint Hill has just five players back from last season’s undefeated team.

“To do what we have done so far is a pleasant surprise,” DeNure said. In the ISL final, Flint Hill trailed early in all three sets against Episcopal, but won each convincingly by 25-13, 259, 25-12 scores. “We started slow in each set, but we stayed composed and played our game,” DeNure said. Senior setter Krissy O’Malley, who will play in College at Liberty University, had three kills and two aces and led the team with multiple assists for Flint

Bardach and a sixth-place by Sophie Tedesco (18:30) helped the Marshall girls place seventh in the region race. The Oakton Cougars won the boys 6D region race with 64 points, three points fewer than the runner-up Patriot Pioneers. Leading the Oakton boys was Zachary Morse in third place in 15:44, with Garrett Woodhouse eighth (15:57), Scott Sullivan 10th (16:01), Bryce Buttrey 23rd (16:19) and Arnav Tikhe 28th

(16:25). The Marshall boys finished third with 123 points and were led by William Blackwell in 17th (16:12), Ben Smith in 18th (16:13) and Sebastian Malave 19th (16:14). The boys individual runner-up was Madison’s Kevin Murphy in 15:40, getting outleaned at the finish by Yorktown’s Albert Velikonja, who had the same time. McLean’s Quin Frew was 12th in the

boys race (16:07). In the girls race, the defending champion Madison Warhawks were second and led by Rachel Shoemaker in seventh (18:35), Megan Keady in 12th (18:52) and Riley DeLacy in 15th (19:07). Langley’s Anna Spear finished fifth (18:17), Oakton’s Katya Lebert was 11th (18:50) and McLean’s Caroline Howley 16th (19:10). Next is the Class 6 state meet for the runners.

ison is the No. 3 seed and hosts Patriot at 7 p.m. Against Centreville, Brandon Walker led Madison with 133 yards rushing and a touchdown and quarterback Ry Yates scored on a 22-yard run and had other long runs. John Finney had three catches for 29 yards. Madison, which led 14-0 at halftime, had 252 total yards, of which 223 were rushing, and had two turnovers. Centreville had 162 total yards and turned the ball over three times. On defense for Madison, Cole Remy made said tackles and had an interception, Max Wysocki had an interception and 1.5 tackles for losses and Tyler Paul had two tackles for losses. n In the annual neighborhood Rotary Cup game Nov. 2, the host Langley Saxons (3-7, 2-3) blanked the winless McLean Highlanders, 26-0, in Liberty District play to end the regular season for both teams. It was Langley’s seventh straight win over McLean (0-10, 0-5), which has finished 0-10 for two straight seasons. Langley led 14-0 entering the final quarter, as McLean was hurt by three interceptions. Leading Langley was running back Tre Vasiliadis. He carried the ball 38

times for 256 yards and had touchdown runs of 4, 5, 10 and 12 yards. Robbie Hamilton kicked two extra points and quarterback Matthew Flenniken was 4 of 7 passing for 48 yards and he ran for 53 more. David Basicov had two catches for 33 yards. On defense for Langley, Thor Kurzenhauser made 4.5 tackles, Wyatt Harrell made four, Jack Hostetter had two interceptions and Adam Taffell one. For McLean on defense, Ryan Jessar and Joe Lokke had interceptions, David Onyejekwe made five tackles and Greg Beard four. On offense, McLean’s Jessar had 27 yards rushing and quarterback Logan Johnson ran for 20 and completed four passes for 49 yards. McLean had 112 total yards. n The Potomac School Panthers (6-3, 3-1) finished second in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference for the second year in a row with a season-ending 49-8 road win over Sidwell Friends on Nov. 3. Potomac School finished second in the state’s final Division I privateschool rating behind Flint Hill, but did not receive one of the fourth berths by the state’s seeding committee to participate in the state playoffs. The same thing happened last year when Potomac

School finished rated fourth, but did not get a playoff berth. “It’s disappointing not to be in the playoffs, because I think we can play with all of those teams and we think we are the second-best team in the state,” Potomac School coach Blake Henry said. “If we had beaten Trinity Episcopal, we would be in the playoffs.” Potomac School lost to Trininty Episcopal, 21-17, in its seventh game on a late score. In the Sidwell game, backup quarterback Chris Joe threw two long touchdown passes to Preston Bacon and Brown Anglin and Jake Levingston ran for multiple scores and led the rushing. On defense, Alex Gyllenhoff returned an interception 40 yards for a TD. Joe played in place of starter J.T. Tyson who was in the concussion protocosl following a hard hit the previous week against Flint Hill. “We dominated the game and our offensive line blocked very well,” Henry said. “We had a great group of seniors who were 6-2 in the MAC the last two years.” n The Oakton Cougars (0-10, 0-5) lost to the host Hayfield Hawks, 39-14, Nov. 2 in non-conference action to complete their season.

RBI as a utility infielder and designated hitter. Perkins batted seventh for Madison and pitched in relief and as a starter with some key performances during the campaign. Gjormand missed Madison’s first seven games with an injury. Once in the lineup, the No. 2 hitter batted .385, scored 12 runs, had eight RBI, walked 10 times, was hit by a pitch four times and struck out just twice. On the mound, the left-hander had a memorable start, throwing a 48-pitch, two-hit complete game in a 1-0 road loss to Chantilly. With the bat, Gjormand had three hits in the contest.

He also pitched in relief in other games. Gjormand was chosen first-team alldistrict and second-team all-region in 2018. “They all feel good about their college decisions, and we are expecting all three to have big seasons for us this coming spring,” said Madison coach Mark Gjormand, who is the father of Josh. “All three are having strong fall seasons.” Madison’s 2019 season is scheduel to begin in March, weather permitting, with practice getting underway in February.

Manager Remembered for Being a Loyal People Person DAVE FACINOLI Staff Writer

Burt Crump was not only remembered as a loyal longtime American Legion basemanager of BASEBALL ball Vienna Post 180, but as a strong family man and person at his funeral and remembrance ceremonies on Sept. 27. Crump, 91, died on Sept. 20 after a short illness. He managed Post 180 to 448 victories and two state championships over 28 years, retiring in 2005 at age 78. Crump’s granddaughter, Brittany, sang a the funeral. Rick Crump gave his father’s eulogy during the funeral at Fairfax Memorial Funeral Home. “Dad was a people person,” said Rick, who explained that his father’s three primary passions were love of family, love for friends and love of baseball. “At one time I thought he knew everyone in Vienna. He cherished his memories of his

Legion baseball years and loved watching Nationals games.” After his burial at the cemetery on the grounds of the funeral home, some 70 to 80 friends, family and former players gathered at the Post 180 Legion Hall on Center Street in Vienna to remember Burt Crump. Many spoke, including former player Chris Burr and current Centreville High School head baseball coach Scott Rowland, who befriended Crump during his days as the head coach at Oakton High School. Former players Rich Wimmer and Jordan Hendrickson were among others who spoke about their memories of Crump. Former player Mike Nielsen also attended as did longtime, and current Alexandria Post 24 manager Jim Glassman, who coached against Crump, and longtime friend Rich Owen, who was an assistant coach under Crump.

Fairfax Public-Safety Notes

DISTRICT MAN CHARGED AFTER ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTING METRO CUSTOMER: Two men who had ridden a

Metrorail Silver Line train to the Tysons Corner Station, 1945 Chain Bridge Road, were getting off the train on Oct. 31 at 6:54 a.m. when one turned around, accused the other of following him and punched the victim several times, Fairfax County police said. The suspect ran away, but responding police officers arrested him after a short foot pursuit, police said. Authorities have charged Jaron Ulmer, 31, of Washington, D.C., with malicious wounding, public intoxication and obstruction of justice. MARYLAND MAN ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY TRYING TO HIS POLICE AT McLEAN PARTY: Fairfax County police

officers responded Oct. 27 at 12:20 a.m. to a complaint about a party at a house in the 6800 block of Dillon Avenue in McLean. When officers walked toward the back yard, a man allegedly became belligerent and tried to hit an officer. When officers searched him, they found alcohol. Police arrested Michael Wade, 20, of Maryland and authorities have charged 30

November 8, 2018

him with attempted assault on a law-enforcement officer and underage possession of alcohol.

MARYLAND MAN ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH TYSONS DRUGSTORE ROBBERY: A man walked into the CVS

drugstore at 8117 Leesburg Pike in Tysons on Oct. 28 at 2:54 p.m., went behind the counter and told an employee he was there to rob him, Fairfax County police said. Officers arrived and arrested Mark Connor, 34, of Maryland. Authorities have charged him with robbery, providing false identification to law enforcement and felony possession of narcotics. ARRAY OF LAWN EQUIPMENT STOLEN FROM VIENNA HOME: A resident living

in the 500 block of Orchard Street, N.W., told Vienna police that sometime between Oct. 22 at noon and Nov. 1 at 5:10 p.m. someone had broken into the house’s shed and stolen a weed trimmer, leaf blower and chain saw. DRUG TAKEBACK NETS MORE THAN A TON OF MEDICATIONS: Fairfax County

police wish to thank everyone who made

the department’s Drug Take-Back Initiative a huge success again this year. County residents on Oct. 27 turned in literally a ton of medications to the department’s stations. County police collected 2,274 pounds of drugs during the event. Here is a breakdown of collections at the eight district stations, ranked in descending order: • West Springfield District Station: 473 pounds. • McLean District Station: 351 pounds. • Fair Oaks District Station: 297 pounds. • Mason District Station: 279 pounds. • Mount Vernon District Station: 247 pounds. • Franconia District Station: 223 pounds. • Reston District Station: 221 pounds. • Sully District Station: 183 pounds Residents who missed the chance to participate in the event still may dispose of their unneeded medication at the drop box in the lobby of the West Springfield District Station, 6140 Rolling Road in Springfield. The station is open 24 hours per day, police officials said.

Local history Items taken from the archives of the Northern Virginia Sun. November 12, 1948: n The Sun’s editorial page says President Truman can claim no mandate from the recent election – “no, indeed!” the paper says – but still congratulated him on his surprise victory. n At the supermarket: Safeway has pork chops for 49 cents per pound and ham for 53 cents per pound. November 10, 1960: n A county resident decided to pay his $404 real estate tax bill in pennies, but county officials – citing a state law – refused to accept them. n Election wrap-up: The Sun’s editorial page says Virginia could be on the verge of becoming a two-party state, and proclaims U.S. Rep. Joel Broyhill, R-10th, as “politically invincible.” n Nearly complete results show that John Kennedy won 49.99 percent of the national vote for president. n Top Virginia Democrats are “making up” after some – including U.S. Sen. Harry Byrd – refused to support John Kennedy’s presidential bid. n Partially tongue-in-cheek, some experts say that continuing population growth means the world will run out of room in 2026. November 14-15, 1969: n Faulty leadership and a lack of staffing are blamed for woes at the Fairfax County housing and redevelopment authority. n Nearly 200 Catholic and Episcopal priests were arrested after attempting to conduct a Mass on the concourse at the Pentagon. n Some students at George Mason College burned their draft cards during an anti-war protest. November 13, 1972: n Jean Packard today becomes the first female chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. n The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that U.S. Sen. Harry Byrd Jr. will switch his party affiliation from independent to Republican by January. n The Fairfax County government’s auction of surplus school buses and other vehicles drew a crowd. n Lt. Gov. Henry Howell is exploring a bid for governor.
