>>> CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY ENROLL NOW

Scott York is promoting the creation of a new police force. I have had my differences with Steve Simpson and the election is over. Sterling is getting a new sherrif's substation since the referendum passed. I hope we don't need a "police force" just a responsive sheriff. We also need volunteers familiar with how the sheriff's office operates now.

Sterling residents usually sign up for the Citizen's Police Academy, which will commence on Wednesday, March 19, 2008. The free sessions will be held one evening per week for 11-weeks and each session will be two hours in length (7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.).   

All classes will be held at the Sheriff's Office Administration Building in Leesburg except the firing range session.

To enroll in the Citizen's Police Academy, please contact Ginger Wines or Bonnie Burke at the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at 703-777-0407, during normal business hours of 8:30 AM. to 5:00 PM.

>>> LOUDOUN SCHOOL ABANDONS ENGLISH IN ENGLISH DEPARTMENT

Sterling citizen T.F. Wallace responded to the official school annnouncment that Hip Hop is being used to build vocabulary at Park View High School in Sterling.  Wallace wrote saying "I see in the Loudoun Easterner that there is a certain teacher at PVHS who had abandoned the likes of Frost, Whitman, Dickinson, et al. Instead, said teacher is focusing her students on Kanye West, Tupac Shakur and I would imagine soon-to-come, RKelly, Eminem, and 50Cent. Outrageous! Disappointing! Unacceptable!" unquote.  Tell your opinion to the bos@loudoun.gov.

>>> CASCADES VILLAGE SENIOR CITIZENS GETTING HELP

I thank you and all the people who continue to help me get assistance to poor seniors at the Cascades Village Senior Center. These lower income citizens asked for and got a cut in a planned rent increase. And private and public social action groups are flocking to visit and make sure no senior citizen goes unassisted due to a lack of information.

>>> BUDGET HYSTERIA

The county administrator and school administrator are pushing for tax hikes and the county board and school board are wrangling over how high a tax hike. I am proposing tax cuts as usual and ending public subisidies to  Howard Hughes Institute, Orbital Sciences Corporation, rich families getting free public lunches daily, public horse parks, new car buyers of hybrid autos, taxpayer subsidized performing arts centers, excessive pay hikes, and useless government departments promoting corporate socialism.
