Rescue Reston is continuing its effort to ensure any future action at Reston National Golf Course maintains its status as nearly 170 acres of open space.
The grassroots organization has been working for more than five years to preserve the golf course. Its efforts to block a sale of the property for residential development resulted in a temporary victory in 2016. However, the property’s owners continue to show interest in what they view as “by-right residential development” on the site.
In a letter emailed today to representatives of property owners Northwestern Mutual and investment advisory firm ARA Newmark, as well as delivered by hand to RN Golf Management LLC, Rescue Reston urges them to remember the desires of the community.
Rumor has it that you are encouraging speculative development of the Reston National Golf Course property, including that, through litigation, one might be able to build upwards of 4,000 units on this land.
Northwestern Mutual and ARA Newmark personnel responsible for this should be ashamed to be willing to put Fairfax County taxpayers through years of litigation to defend the very definite land use designation of Open Space at the property located at 11875 Sunrise Valley Drive and 2018 Soapstone Drive, Reston, Virginia.
We direct your attention to your PR statement regarding strengthening local communities at northwesternmutual.com/about-us/what-we-believe. If Northwestern Mutual, the majority partner of RN Golf Management LLC, which is the owner of the property at Reston National Golf Course, truly believes its own statement, then NWM must stop.
Reston is a Planned Residential Community. You can read the short version of what that means at http://bit.ly/PRC-Districts.
We request that NWM consider a tax efficient strategy which will preserve the golf course as open space involving the donation of the land to the Reston Association or a conservation group, or the creation of a perpetual conservation easement. Andrea Reese, Sr. Land Conservation Specialist at the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust stands ready to explore this option with you. She can be reached at 703-354-5093.
Rescue Reston’s correspondence also refers back to a letter it penned in May reminding ARA Newmark of the group’s commitment to defending the property and of the property’s approved zoning uses and land use limitations.
Earlier this year, ARA Landmark sent out information indicating that by-right residential development would soon be available at the golf course. The price was designated as “TBD by Market.” A report by real-estate news website GlobeSt.com estimated its selling price might be more than $25 million — and that a developer could make up to $200 million from the property.
In April, Fairfax County Superintendent Cathy Hudgins reminded constituents that any attempt to redevelop the property would require a lengthy list of rulings, including “an amendment to the Reston Master Plan which is part of the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan, as well as obtaining both Development Plan Amendment approval and Planned Residential Community Plan approval from the Board of Supervisors.”
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue’s 2017 “Fill the Boot” campaign, its annual fundraiser for the Greater Washington Muscular Dystrophy Association, is this weekend.
The Labor Day tradition, which has been going on for more than 35 years, raises hundreds of thousands each year for MDA. This year, some of that money will go to another very important cause.
“This week members of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, along with the rest of the world, watched devastation unfold in Texas,” reads a press release issued Thursday morning. “We knew that we wanted to do something to help. The staff at the Greater Washington Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and National MDA also felt that need. With that in mind a recommendation was made that, for municipalities interested, a portion of ‘Fill the Boot’ money should go to a disaster relief fund.”
Fairfax County has decided that $50,000 of the money it raises in this year’s effort will go toward the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.
The campaign will take place Friday through Monday, and drivers are asked to watch for uniformed firefighters with apparatus on display at controlled intersections all over the county.
Last year, Fire and Rescue reports that the $521,509 it raised through the campaign was the most among any department in the United States and Canada — an accomplishment it says it has achieved in eight of the past 10 years.
According to the Greater Washington Muscular Dystrophy Association, funding it receives goes toward:
- The annual weeklong MDA Children’s Summer Camp, where kids from 6 to 17 years old can have a “typical” camp experience with their peers. They enjoy swimming, boating, zip line, crafts, a talent show and many other activities all tailored to their specific disability. This week also provides a respite for the families from the sometimes 24-hour-a-day job of caring for a special needs child. This camp is provided free of charge for the families.
- The MDA clinic at Georgetown University Hospital and Children’s National Medical Center. This “one-stop shop” allows those with neuromuscular disease to see all of their specialists, such as their cardiologist, neurologist, pulmonologist, occupational therapist and many others in one location. This alleviates the need to make appointments and travel throughout the D.C. area to the many medical professionals that they see on a regular basis.
- Research at the National Institutes of Health and Georgetown University.
- Programs designed to help people with neuromuscular disease live, go to school and work independently.

Virginia has more Confederate monuments than any other state in the country, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). With 223 by SPLC count, Virginia tops other states like Texas with 178, Georgia with 174 and South Carolina with 112.
Drive through most any small town in the Commonwealth and the statue of an unnamed Confederate soldier can be found on a pedestal near the center of town, near the courthouse, or sometimes by the cemetery. Messages of valor and honor are often chiseled into the pedestal.
A notable exception is Richmond, once capital of the Confederacy. It has a whole street, Monument Avenue, with five different Confederate leaders — Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Matthew Fontaine Maury — sculpted at a super-human scale on an extra-high pedestal to ensure that everyone must look up at them.
More and more individuals and communities are raising questions about the appropriateness of the statues. After all, they attempt to put in a place of honor individuals who led armies against the United States of America. They were in armies that fought for the right of Southerners to own slaves. Contrary to the argument that the Civil War was about states’ rights, the right that was being claimed by the Southern states including Virginia was a right to own another human being to be used as slave labor. Why should anyone leading such an effort be glorified?
The role the men depicted in the statues played in defending slavery is repulsive enough, but the events leading up to erecting the statues make them even more problematic. The statues were not erected near the end of the Civil War, but were put in place between 1896 and 1915 during the “Lost Cause” effort to rewrite history and portray the Confederacy’s cause as noble.
In 1896, the Supreme Court upheld that “separate but equal” was constitutional. Following that ruling, Virginia and the other southern states started passing Jim Crow laws that almost eliminated African Americans from voting and separated the races in schools, buses, social events and most of life. Southerners started spinning their tales of how wonderful the South had been before “the War of Northern Aggression” and how honorable were the men who served in the Confederacy, leading to the monuments.
That history is important for all to learn. It should be taught and explored in our schools. Likewise, the artifacts of the period should be preserved in our museums along with the statues of individuals who played a role in the history. Public spaces should be reserved for the comfort and enjoyment of all our citizens. They need not be part of sending an underlying message that it was acceptable to take part in an insurrection for the purpose of being able to enslave others.
The monuments need to be shipped off to museums where they can be viewed in their historic context. Otherwise, we face a monumental problem of demonstrations like the one that took place in Charlottesville happening again.

Area home and garden businesses will share their products and services with residents during the Reston Expo, now scheduled for Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event was originally planned for Saturday, May 13, but it was postponed due to rain on that date. To avoid a recurrence of that situation, the event is planned to be held under a tent.
In addition to the change in date, there will also be a change in location. Instead of its normal home at Reston Association headquarters, the free event will take place at 1900 Campus Commons Drive. According to the Eventbrite page for the event, this will allow the Expo to be combined with RA’s semi-annual yard sale.
Advertised as “a one-stop shopping event for home improvement and more,” the event will also include food, music, kids’ tent events and workshops.
The community is invited to Café Montmarte (1625 Washington Plaza, at Lake Anne) tonight from 5:30-7 p.m. for a fundraiser to benefit aid to Hurricane Harvey victims.
“[Disaster Aid USA] has a very good track record of giving money directly to the beneficiaries,” Griffin said in a Facebook video.
The Rotary Club will be asking for a $20 donation from each attendee, Griffin said. That will include one free drink and appetizers, he said.
Disaster Aid USA is a Rotarian-operated project, and it is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity. According to its executive director, Kenneth “Larry” Agee, the organization has crews currently in Texas and Louisiana helping the cause.
“Money for supplies and equipment are needed ASAP to purchase and rent more equipment; water pumps, pressure washers, demolition equipment, cleaning supplies including spray to prohibit mold, tools for removal of wet wall board, insulation and other water-damaged building materials,” Agee said Monday.
The Rotary Club of Reston hosts its monthly networking event on the final Wednesday of each month at Café Montmartre.
JamBrew will be presented each Friday night in September on the Herndon Town Green (777 Lynn St.), featuring live music, local food and local drinks. Food and refreshments will be available from Aslin Beer Co., Weird Brothers Coffee, Lake Anne Brew House and Brama Italian Cuisine. In addition, there will be more food and beverages, including wine; vendors, artists and more.
This year, there are five Fridays in September, so there is an extra opportunity to enjoy the festivities.
The music schedule for the series is as follows:
- Sept. 1: DJ Cihad, Todd Wright and Tammy Gann, and Turtle Recall
- Sept. 8: MK Skillz, Shane Gamble and Burn the Ballroom
- Sept. 15: DJ Ragz, The Duskwhales and JUXT
- Sept. 22: DJ CB1, Queens Over Kings and Sub-Radio
- Sept. 29: Edward the Librarian, Black Masala and a third act TBA
The Friday night series will last from 6-10 p.m. each night.
The series will be capped off Saturday, Sept. 30, at Herndon’s annual OktoBrewFest event. During that all-day event (noon to 10 p.m.), music will be provided by Tribalistix Crew, Bach 2 Rock, Darlingtonia, Unsullied, Dr. Robinson’s Fiasco and Throwing Plates.
In addition to the food and drink vendors listed above, sponsors of the free event series include the Town of Herndon, EOTH, Hampton Inn, Dominion Energy, Reed Smith, Griffen Owens and Right On Records. Proceeds benefit local nonprofits including Recyclelife.org, ArtSpace Herndon, The Closet of Herndon and Cancer Can Rock.
The series is presented by the Herndon Hospitality Association, a 501(c)(6) organization.

Meet Noah, a mini-Golden Retriever mix available for adoption.
Here is what his friends at Worthy Dog Rescue have to say about him:
Meet Noah. This mini-Golden Retriever mix spent his entire life tied to a tree with an overturned plastic trash can as his only source of shelter. He was fed every other day and was lucky to get fresh water. This was a terribly lonely and neglectful life for Noah, but he has made an amazingly quick transition to home life, and is now soaking up lots of love and attention from his foster family.
Noah has had such a transformational past few weeks – he’s been groomed, spent time in doggy daycare, and received an A++ report card for how he interacted with the other dogs. He has taken on a love for toys and appreciates a comfy couch. He now gets daily walks, and gets very excited when it’s walk time, cherishing the opportunity to explore the outside world. He still pulls a little on leash, but this is all new to him and he’s learning.
He’s currently being fostered with another pup, Gracee, and does well sharing his toys, the couch, and his foster mom’s affection. He follows Gracee’s lead and has learned from her, and would do great with another dog buddy in his home. Noah has been around young kids and is very friendly, giving them a gentle sniff and allowing them to pet and love him. The neighbors have remarked at how sweet he is, and by nature Noah a very friendly dog. Some male strangers have given him pause, causing him to bark, but his friendship can be purchased with a few treats.
Noah’s foster mom describes him as curious, and says he doesn’t seem to have any fear when it comes to going to new places or doing new things. At home, he’s super snuggly and just loves to be acknowledged. When she tells him “enough” he will go lay down. He’s housetrained, and will wander into his crate to sleep during the day, but is not very fond of the door being closed, scratching to get out. That’s still a work in progress, but he learned “sit” in just a few days and is very smart and eager to please.
This gorgeous pup deserves a great life, and Worthy Dog Rescue is happy to help him find his way home. He has been fully vetted, treated for heartworm, and will be coming to N. VA on 9/9, so apply today!
Are you and Noah a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

The first community meeting to discuss a future project at Hook Road Recreation Area provided members a chance to learn about the process and share information about how their voices will be heard.
It was far from run of the mill, though, as the Tuesday evening event was dotted with angry voices and flaring tempers — and even an appearance from the Fairfax County Police Department.
The meeting was the kickoff of what will be a several-month project to determine what, if anything, should be done to enhance the facilities at the park in North Reston. Design consultant Dewberry was introduced to members, and its representatives shared information about the studies that have been done so far and how community input will be used as the project continues to be studied and eventually decided upon.
Many of the more than 100 members in attendance, however, expressed their dismay with Ray Wedell — the At-Large member of the Reston Association Board of Directors who recently shared his personal thoughts on the project in a five-page statement. In the statement, Wedell said amenities such as the baseball field at the park do not need upgrades, and that consideration should be given to removing the tennis and basketball facilities altogether.
Sherri Hebert, president of the RA Board, made a point at the start of the meeting to mention that Wedell’s opinions in no way represent anything that is being considered by the Board as a whole.
“I did receive several emails, and I know the RA Board did as well … regarding a letter [from Wedell],” Hebert said. “I just want to say that was Ray’s comments and Ray’s perspective; that did not represent the Reston Board or RA.”
Presentations were provided by Elaine Killoran of RA’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and by Garrett Skinner, RA’s director of capital projects, on how the process of determining what will be done at the park will proceed. Members are being encouraged to apply to be part of the Hook Road Working Group, which will be appointed in October and will be asked to give a report to the Board in February.
In December, the Board authorized the allocation of $50,000 from the Repair & Replacement Reserve Fund for the purpose of developing design concept plans related to the Hook Road project. The Board voted at its July meeting to form the working group.
Future community work sessions and roundtable events on the project have been tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4, 10 and 24.
More than once during the meeting, Wedell circumvented the line of speakers waiting to give their public comment on the project. The crowd met him with point-of-order calls and shouted him down as he attempted to shout over them. At one point, some turned their backs on him and refused to listen to his statement.
Wedell said he was within his right to take the stand and respond to comments. Hebert and Sridhar Ganesan, the Board’s treasurer, at one point told him to step away from the microphone, which he had taken from the stand and was holding in his hand.
“I apologize for that,” Hebert told members. “This is actually your meeting, so I would like to hear what you have to say.”
Wedell’s comments about the baseball fields — which include that there is “no need for fancy field backstops and constantly pure lining of sidelines” and that the proposals include “expensive and unnecessary changes to the baseball backstops” — drew the attention of Reston-Herndon Little League president Jason Walker, who said Wedell’s generalizations about field usage at the park are wildly inaccurate.
“Almost everything [Wedell] wrote about Reston-Herndon Little League with regard to equipment needs, our scheduling, the way we use the field, who uses the field — all of it is factually incorrect,” Walker said after the meeting. “I am for the upgrades, obviously, but I think [members] need a fair and accurate representation of facts from someone who has been involved with this, and I have been involved with this since 2010.”
After Walker made his public comment, he and Wedell had a verbal confrontation at the back of the room. An argument ensued in which Wedell told Walker to “shut up,” and Walker was heard calling Wedell “a disgrace.” The men give differing stories on who instigated the argument. After the brief disruption in the meeting, Walker left the room.
The Fairfax County Police Department was summoned at some point, and a pair of officers responded after the meeting had concluded. They conducted interviews at the scene, including with Wedell, but no report was filed.
When asked about the events of the evening afterward, Wedell said the portion of his letter that suggested replacing tennis and basketball facilities at Hook Road with parking — the genesis of a great amount the anger shown by members — was meant to be provocative and to increase community conversation about the plan. The ultimate goal, he said, was to increase the voice of the people who feel no upgrades should be made to the park at all.
“I’ve been pushing for community engagement like this for a very long time, and if it took what they think is a provocative piece to do so, I’m happy it happened,” he said. “When this first came up in March, I was clear — do nothing. Just standard maintenance. We don’t need any of this to happen.”
Tuesday evening’s meeting was recorded by RA staff and will be made available on the Association’s YouTube channel. Members who would like to receive email updates about the project can join the mailing list by emailing [email protected].
All documents from this meeting and all future meetings on the project will be made available on the Hook Road page on Reston Association’s website.

We’ve all been affected by the scenes coming from southeast Texas recently as Hurricane Harvey hammered that part of the country.
As residents seek ways to lend a hand to those suffering in that area, Fairfax County officials are warning that scams abound during situations such as these.
“Past tragedies and natural disasters have prompted individuals with criminal intent to solicit contributions purportedly for a charitable organization and/or good cause,” reads the Charity Fraud page on the county Department of Cable and Consumer Services website. “Before making a donation of any kind, consumers should adhere to certain guidelines.”
Among the suggestions provided:
- Do not respond to any unsolicited (spam) incoming emails by clicking on links contained within those messages.
- Be skeptical of individuals representing themselves as surviving victims or officials asking for donations via email or social networking sites.
- Verify the legitimacy of nonprofit organizations by using online resources that may assist in confirming the group’s existence and its nonprofit status, rather than following a purported link to the site.
- Be cautious of emails that claim to show pictures of the disaster areas in attached files because the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders.
- Make contributions directly to known organizations rather than relying on others to make the donation on your behalf to ensure contributions are received and used for intended purposes.
- Do not give your personal or financial information to anyone who solicits contributions: providing such information may compromise your identity and make you vulnerable to identity theft.
- If you are solicited by a charity, don’t feel rushed or pressured into making an immediate commitment. Ask the caller or solicitor to provide written information about the charity’s programs and finances before you make a contribution.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency says donating cash to a reputable charitable organization is the best way to provide support from afar.
If you’re interested in helping with Harvey, here are some tips to keep in mind:- To help voluntary/nonprofit…
The New York Times has provided a list of local and national organizations to which one might consider donating, including:
- The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
- Houston Food Bank and Food Bank of Corpus Christi
- Carter Blood Care
- Houston Humane Society and San Antonio Humane Society
- United Way of Greater Houston
- The American Red Cross
FEMA recommends visiting the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster website to find out more ways to help.

Meanwhile, in the Town of Herndon, police say a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle last week on Herndon Parkway. According to Lt. Stephen Thompson, the incident occurred at about 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23 near the intersection with Ferndale Avenue.
“The driver remained on scene, and our accident reconstruction unit is still investigating,” Thompson said. “Right now, there are no charges.”
The pedestrian who was struck was taken to Reston Hospital Center’s emergency room with trauma to her head.
