Mental Health Screenings Available — The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board now offers same day, in-person screening for mental health/and or substance use concerns to both adults and youth at its Merrifield Center (8221 Willow Oaks Corporate Drive, Fairfax). [Fairfax County]

Escaped Detainee Had Been Deported Five Previous Times — Marlo Danilo “Carlos” Rivas-Mendez, who temporarily escaped from ICE custody Monday while being transported, had previously been removed from the United States in 2007, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016. [United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia]

Wastewater Treatment Plant Gets Top Score — For the 19th consecutive year, the Noman M. Cole Jr. Pollution Control Plant in Lorton has earned the Platinum Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies. [Inside Nova]

Former Herndon Man to Run for President — In July 2013, Adam Kokesh’s Herndon home was raided by the U.S. Park Police after he called for a “Final American Revolution” and posted a YouTube video of himself loading a shotgun on DC’s Freedom Plaza. Now living in Arizona, Kokesh says he’s seeking the 2020 Libertarian presidential nomination. [Santa Fe New Mexican]

    Marlo had only been deported five times huh ?? Hard to imagine the current ” police state” of America falling asleep so often .

    • Mike M

      Maybe things are not at all what you think, after all?

  • JohnDoe

    5 Times??!!! Wow…. Looks like maybe Trump was right.

  • Guest

    An “anti-war, pro-gun, pro-drug activist” Libertarian felon as the next President of the United States? Sure! He’s already carrying Trump’s anti-establishment political outsider baton to perfection.

    • Mike M

      I told you Libs that if you dismissed the Tea Party, you would be shocked at what came next. Now you are desperately trying to invalidate the elected President. You might get worse than Kokesh next. Or you might just get him. Keep closing your eyes and covering your ears and singing la-la-la. Or wake up and see that the government is not, should not be, and cannot be sustainably the center of the economy. Clobber the entitlement regime or our kids will all know destitution and possibly civil war in their lifetimes.

    • The Constitutionalist

      It’s July. We’re still doing this?

  • RestonAssurance

    I wonder if he flew back into the country, bypassing the border, each of those five times.

  • Greg

    Even sewage in Fairfax County is the best of the best. Now I know why my sewer bill keeps going up…
