coffee, always coffee

May 9, 2003

Seems the winter was a warm up for all these loud and rainy thunderstorms today and this week. These are natural reminders that we are just lucky residents of God's earth.



Thank you to those of you who turned out at the splendid gathering last week.

Delegates Dick Black, and Tom Rust and other prominent local officials and several former officials visited last Saturday and we installed several new members of the Sterling Youth Commission. Thank you to Mssrs. Black and Rust and congrats to the new Commission members.

Sheriff Steve Simpson hopes to visit tomorrow's coffee at the famous Jimmy G's restaurant in the Clock Tower tomorrow Saturday, May 10th at 10 a.m.

I will provide free coffee, soft drinks and bagels. You will provide me with the gracing of your presence. I hope.

OTHER COFFEES, Saturday May 17 and May 24, both 10 am. at Jimmy G.s That next 3 Saturdays at Jimmy G.s (May 10, May 17 and 24th).

These weekly meetings provide area residents the opportunity to get together with their neighbors and elected, appointed and former officials. Together we can make a difference. Alone we will lose.

Next Board Meeting

The Board of Supervisors will meet again on Monday May 19 and we will have a groundbreaking ceremony over at the old bank at Church and Route 28 to commemorate the building of a large new intersection that will solve the traffic horror at that busy spot. There will be no interruption of traffic during construction.

Crowding in Sterling

There will be public hearing in June to hear the proposed new regulations on commercial trucks crowding our residential streets along with a list of fines for law-breakers.

Delgaudio Right About Loudoun Hospital

From the very first moments of my taking office, I defended this Hospital and its staff and promised they are working to save lives and need support, not political attacks.

Here is a news item from WJLA TV News Channel 7 concerning Loudoun Hospital.

Virginia Hospital Helped Stop SARS U.S. Spread
Posted - May 08, 2003 8:56am

"Nobody at the (Loudoun) hospital knew a disease that would be named SARS even existed on the snowy February day an ambulance brought a wheezing woman to the emergency room.

Doctors quickly diagnosed pneumonia, but weren't unduly worried until her nephew called two hours later to say the woman, who spoke no English, had just returned from China's Guangdong province - where relatives had reported a strange type of pneumonia was killing people.

It was the nation's first suspected case of severe acute respiratory syndrome, a full month before the World Health Organization would warn the globe about the contagious new disease."

Save the date

Monday, 6 to 8 p.m. June 16th at the famous Jimmy G's Restaurant in the Clock Tower in the Community Shopping Plaza for a Delgaudio Fundraising event. I am revealing here that there will be awards for several key senior and young county leaders at this event with one special person receiving a top award. (Young Adults Free, age 18 to 21. Youth 14 to 17, Free, acompanied by one Adult. Seniors over 65 no way we are asking for money, they have done a lot already)

Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 1222 Sterling, Virginia 20167. Today if you can. Thank you.
