Kudos, HHS Markswoman — Herndon High senior Allison Maxwell, a Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) cadet, has been invited for the second consecutive year to compete in national marksmanship events at the annual NJROTC Service Championship Feb. 18-20 in Ohio. Maxwell, who serves as the executive officer of the Corps of Cadets and captain of the HHS rifle team, set a new school record while placing in the top three in every NJROTC Area 5 (Va., Md., and Washington, D.C.) meet that she competed in this season.

Reston Museum Docents Wanted — The Reston Historic Trust is seeking volunteer docents to welcome visitors and help with daily operations of the Reston Museum at Lake Anne Plaza. Weekend volunteers are particularly welcome. If you are interested, please call 703-709-7700, or e-mail [email protected].

Snow Budget Spent — The recent blizzard used up all of Northern Virginia’s snow removal budget for the winter. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says more can be spent, but another project might have to wait in order to cover more removal. [WTOP]

    You rock, Allison Maxwell! Some of the most productive sharpshooters in history were women.

    I hope Mr. Plum doesn’t see this – he might be confused on how someone could lawfully use a gun in a proactive way. A big congrats to this fine citizen

    • Ming the Merciless

      No, no, this is all in keeping with Lefty dogma — only trained agents of the state should have, or use, bad scary evil guns.
