STERLING'S YOUNG HEROES

July 11, 2003

The Fourth and Fifth of July were splendid celebrations for everybody in Sterling. There were fireworks on every block and flags everywhere!

STERLING'S YOUNG HEROS

In recent unanimous decisions, I asked the board to formally commend several young Sterling heros.

On your behalf and on behalf of all Sterling citizens, and the entire county, I presented Resolutions commending Eagle Scouts Peter Hale and Thomas Moore.

Peter's Eagle project was to build a fence for a Loudoun County Park. Thomas has been a leader in his church youth group.

On Tuesday night I presented a Resolution of Commendation to Heather Lawver for nurturing a love of writing among children and giving them a safe place on the internet for writing. Lawver received worldwide recognition in London, England when she was presented the 2003 Viewers Choice Award at the Childnet Awards Conference.

If you know some hero, young or old, tell me about. At the next meeting, a Sterling patriot who received NASA's top award will be recognized.

On the One Hand

$300,000 Down The Drain On Monday at the board meeting, I heard explosive testimony from MC Dean staff how the county wasted almost $300,000.00. on the bid process for the jail.

The staff and board members Jim Burton and Chuck Harris, after one hour of refuting the MC Dean witness, voted to accept the flawed bid process.

On the Other Hand

Spend $9.5 Millon To "Save" $300,000 The very next night, very late at 11:00 P.M.-- at the Public Hearing-- a majority of the board, embraced saving an estimated 300,000 dollars by purchasing 22 buses for commuters at a price of $9,500,000.00.

As an observation, I point out how absurd it is that on Monday Burton and Harris said it was okay to waste $300,000 to spend $20,000,000. but on Tuesday, here the board decides that "saving" $300,000 is worth going $9.5 million in the hole.

The County currently budgets commuter buses on a cash basis and commutters pay 50 to 60 per cent of the total costs by buying tickets. The money the county pays comes from the gas tax, not the property tax.

COFFEE AND BAGELS

YOU CAN DO IT

Yes, it is true, I have held 20 coffee and bagel get togethers. They will continue every Saturday at 10 a.m. After some small talk, I then ask those of you who are willing to join me the rest of the day by either a.) delivering surveys or b.) doing campaign work. Your choice.

GET PERMISSION FIRST!

If you have the ability and your spouse or parents give you permission to leave the house, please join me at Jimmy G's restaurant this Saturday, July 12th. Jimmy G's is located opposite the Burlington Coat Factory on Route 7 in Sterling.

Black and Cuccinelli Party In Loudoun

The Sterling Virginia Citizens Defense League is having a FREE picnic. Criminals and thugs avoid areas with armed citizens. I think VCDL protects themselves and Sterling. I believe it is why certain neighborhoods don't get a break in. You never read about crimes prevented by armed citizens.

On July 26th VCDL will be hosting a picnic in Algonkian Regional Park to thank VCDL members and other law-abiding gun enthusiasts and Delegate Black, and Senator Cuccinelli. The pavilion is next to the Potomac river. Lunch will be from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please RSVP to VCDL Executive Member Chip Fetrow at NoVaPicnic@vcdl.org Mr. Fetrow is a prominent citizen leader in Sterling and in the Loudoun area and is to be commended for his community work.

EUGENE'S WISDOM

A more humble Supervisor does not exist.

If you attend any of these events, your entire life will improve dramatically. I promise you. Imagine the consequences if this entire Board is re-elected except for me. It is up to you. I doing all I can.
