Hot, Hot, Hot! — Last week was sweltering, and the rest of this week may actually be worse. Weather models predict the possibility of triple-digit temperatures and heat indices as high as 110 through this weekend. [Capital Weather Gang]

Pink Fire Trucks Paying a Visit — The Pink Heals organization will visit the Fairfax County Government Center (12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax) on Friday. Pink Heals partners with the public safety, medical professionals, local businesses and community leaders to bring more support for local citizens by keeping fundraising activities local.

Laughs Take Over at Lake Anne — A recent comedy night at Lake Anne Plaza’s Café Montmarte was deemed a great success. Another is being planned for September. [Reston Connection]

FCPD Officer Put on Leave After Crash — Officer Pshko Siteki did not have his emergency equipment on and was going 68 mph in a 40 mph zone prior to the February crash in Falls Church, which left a private citizen with extensive injuries from which he is still recovering. [Fairfax County Police Department]

Portion of Potomac May Shut Down for Trump — Boaters who enjoy paddling their canoes and kayaks in the Potomac River are facing a new hazard on the water: the closure of a 1.6-mile stretch of the river whenever President Trump visits his golf course in Sterling. [Washingtonian]

    The constant push of this media outfits liberal agenda is so apparent it is disgusting. Thankfully the comment section brings some reality to each article, and makes them enjoyable for those of us that don’t reside in LaLa land.

    • Edward Calvert

      Some people don’t like the comment section lol

    • Willie Reston

      Which blurb did you misinterpret as liberal agenda?

      • Adrian Havill

        Probably the pink fire truck.

        • ??????????????????

          I still don’t know what they’re planning on healing with the “pink heals” program. Breast cancer?

        • Willie Reston

          That’s what I was thinking. If that’s the case, either OP didn’t bother reading anything about it, or somehow sees cancer survivor advocacy as being a “liberal agenda”.

          • Bah

            It is definitely part of the liberal agenda to give breast cancer more publicity and funding than it deserves relative to other types of cancer.

        The snowflake outrage about the secret security having to lock down parts of the Potomac when the President is visiting his golf course. I like the pink fire truck.

        • RestonAssurance

          I must have missed the snowflake outrage. The boaters affected are probably a mixed bag on the political spectrum.

          • Enough

            The boaters yes, but the WaPo, & NYT crybaby reporters are not.

  • Greg

    The crash occurred in February and the negligent cop is only put on leave (at full pay no doubt) in July???
