Nordine Salon & Day Spa to Celebrate Grand Opening – On Thursday, the salon will host a ribbon cutting ceremony from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The spa moved from Reston Town Center to 11389 Reston Station Blvd. [Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce]

Reston Recognized as Bicycle Friendly Community – The League of American Bicyclists gave Reston the recognition once again this year. The program allows states, localities, businesses and others to make bicycling a transportation option for all. [Reston Association via Twitter]

Herndon Man Arrested After Police Pursuit – On Saturday, Herndon police arrested Corey Rogers for fleeing from an officer on Herndon Parkway during a stop for a traffic violation. After a short pursuit, the driver lost control and the vehicle struck a light pole. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, eluding officers and reckless driving, among other charges.

    I get that RestonNow essentially regurgitates what others provide and does not dig deeper into local matters, make phone calls beyond the PR people or otherwise engage in enterprise journalism (see, e.g., the recent murders where all sorts of media completely scooped RestonNow over and over again on its own beat). Regardless, I appreciate the generic info RestonNow provides as it does provide a good service to the community. But moving forward, can RestonNow please make an effort to proofread the postings before publishing? (See, e.g., “The program is allows states…”) I understand that self-editing is difficult and ill-advised for anyone, but if possible, please make the extra effort. Unlike comments, RestonNow sells itself as a professional outlet. It’s not like RestonNow is sitting on a scoop that can’t wait an extra 10 minutes.

    Signed,

      I have already explained this situation. Reston Now was not always been this way. Face the truth.

      By the way, did you see that nut Herndon Man was stopped for a traffic violation in an office? Oh, Herndon Man! You’ve done it again!

      • OneReally

        He is related to Sterling and Reston man, right?

        • Mike M

          Yeah, but Reston Man doesn’t like to talk about it. We all have
          “those cousins.”

          • OneReally

            Like Reston teacher and Principal.

    • Anonymous Person

      Preach.

    • Why do you bother?

      There’s nothing grammatically incorrect in the sentence you called out. RN must have fixed it.

      • AP

        Don’t worry though, it’s still there so that we can make commentors look like old men screaming random words at computers.

  • EADGBE

    Making Reston a Bicycle Friendly Community was not a good thing. Fix the roads.

    • OneReally

      It was driven by special interest groups. Let’s give 10% of the road to bikers. How often is this 10% use, maybe <1%?

      Then bikers take up most of the road during those bike packs.
