Alzheimer’s Walk Raises More Than $267K — The event Sunday at Reston Town Center saw family members, caregivers, friends and colleagues of Alzheimer’s victims rallying to support finding a cure for the devastating disease. [Connection Newspapers]

Reston Boy Gets New Sight — Felix Regis, 10, has had severely impaired vision his entire life. This summer, he received a pair of augmented-reality glasses that have “open[ed] up his world.” [NBC Washington]

Reston Man Gets 1 Year in Prison for Embezzlement — Michael Patrick Ziegler, 49, was convicted in April of seven offenses, including forgery, passing forged documents and obtaining money by false pretenses. He stole nearly $150,000 from Garrett Development Co. in Stafford County while working there as the vice president. [Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star]

Police: 45-Year-Old Shined Laser at Helicopter — A Centreville man hit the Fairfax One chopper with a laser three times Saturday night, police say. The helicopter’s crew was able to use its infrared camera to direct officers to the suspect. He faces a misdemeanor charge, and the Federal Aviation Administration will also investigate.

  • Suggestions

    What does everyone think Ken Plum is going to complain about tomorrow?

    • Mike M

      The President’s comments about the NFL clownery before the flag. How do I know? Well it’s an opportunity to jump on the race-baiting wagon, whine about Trump, and stay off Reston-relevant topics.

      • Suggestions

        So thats what we are betting on? Taking a knee during the anthem, and why Ken supports it.

        • Mike M

          What’s the bet?
          I’d bet that that’s his beef tomorrow or next week. I don’t know that he is very current.

          • Suggestions

            You’re right, NFL might be too current for him. Perhaps something about how the recent hurricanes were the NRA / Trump’s fault? Or, maybe he will finally admit that he just flat out hates Freedom.

          • Mike M

            Good bet. Divisive, partisan, not about his constituency. Hurricanes might win it. I look forward to Ken’s blurb for the first time now.

    • Yawn

      Republicans, the NRA, Trump, blah blah blah.

      We may well be treated to his im becile opinion about football players taking a knee. Which has nothing specifically to do with Reston, but few of his tirades actually do.

    • Greg

      Guns. No wait, that was last week.
