Fundraiser for Scanlan — Friends of Damien Scanlan, a former bartender at O’Sullivan’s Irish Pub in Herndon, are hosting a fundraiser there tonight to raise money to fly Sanlan’s body back to Ireland for burial. Scanlan was found dead in a Herndon creek last week. [Herndon Patch]

Wexton Wins —  Democrat Jennifer Wexton defeated two veteran Loudoun County politicians Tuesday to earn a seat in the Senate of Virginia and give Virginia Democrats majority power in Richmond for the first time since 2009. Wexton topped Republican John Whitbeck 53 percent to 37 percent. Former Republican state Del. Joe May, running his Senate race as an independent, earned nearly 10 percent of the vote. The special election was to fill the 33rd District seat vacated by Sen. Mark Herring, Virginia’s new attorney general. The 33rd covers Herndon, Oak Hill and part of Loudoun County. [Loudoun Times Mirror]

Silver Line Slow Going — The repeated delays may push the Silver Line into an April opening – nearly five months later than originally estimated. Is May a possibility now? Either way, the impact at Tysons Corner will be significant [The Tysons Corner Blog]

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead.
