Happening nearby: Nine-year-old boy dies in school accident — “FCPD officers say a 9-year-old boy has died after an accident at Franconia Elementary School on May 19. The boy, who was in the School Age Child Care (SACC) program at his school on Beulah Road, was in the gym at about 4:45.  The child, Wesley Lipicky, and a teacher, both simultaneously pressed a button to open a large, motorized room partition that splits in the middle.” [Fairfax County Times]

    “No golfing around — Rescue Reston, a grassroots
    organization dedicated to preserving Reston’s open space, provides an
    update on efforts to protect Hidden Creek Country Club.”

    I just hope we don’t lose focus from Reston National.

    Hidden Creek is a nice looking course, but a % of their golfers are self-righteous.

    Didn’t they just spend a bunch of money on a safety surge? The fun when you have the union running the place.

            Did you ever return Willie Reston Mom’s sock?

          • The Constitutionalist

            No, and I refuse.

          • Why do you bother?

            You really don’t get the concept, do you?

          • The Constitutionalist

            Care to explain the concept for me?

    • Chuck Morningwood

      And you think Metro would run better without a union? Why would that be? Because they’re willing to work harder for sub-standard wages?
