BE PART OF STERLING HISTORY JUNE 9

May 29, 2010

I am all excited about the historic first for Sterling, the opening of the new Sterling Sheriff's Substation. But first, here are some of the top events this week

MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONIES

Memorial Day weekend tends to be commemorated with parades, cookouts, and other quintessentially American festivities - and well it should be. We mourn those we have lost, but we know that they did not die in vain, and we celebrate the freedom we enjoy as heirs to their sacrifice.

American Legion Post 150's 34th annual Memorial Day Ceremony.
Monday May 31 11 A.M.

Ann Kuo, Commander of American Legion Post 150 in Sterling, announced that Sterling's 34th annual Veteran's Memorial Day Ceremony will be held on Monday, May 31st 2009, at 11:00 am at the Sterling Veteran's Memorial located on the North East corner of Sterling Middle School grounds at the intersection of Sterling Boulevard and East Holly Avenue.

WHAT: STERLING MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY
WHERE: STERLING VETERAN'S MEMORIAL
WHEN: MONDAY MAY 31 11 A.M.TO 12 NOON
WHO: AMERICAN LEGION AND VARIOUS VET GROUPS

Like the Knights of Columbus with the annual parade, the Sterling Foundation with Sterlingfest and many other groups operating in Sterling Park, the American Legion has hosts an important ceremony for 33 years.

Christina from AJ Landscapes of Sterling spent days working on the landscaping to help the vets and make Sterling look good. Here's the link to the Sterling American Legion Post 150 which has 100s of photos of activities.

CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF TOWN HALL

Our Congressman Frank Wolf has been in Sterling a dozen times. He has spent entire evenings or visited during the day frequently to see how Sterling is doing.


Congressman Wolf fights crime in Sterling and I recognize him later in this letter. Wolf also fights corruption and wasteful spending and leads the country in finding ways to save 100s of billions of dollars systematically (this is based on his various detailed proposals to reduce wasteful army bases and several other giant boondoggles over the years).

Rep. Frank Wolf, (R-10th) announced that he will host a public town hall meeting Tuesday, June 1st in Leesburg, VA as part of a national initiative called "America Speaking Out" launched by Republicans.

"America Speaking Out" was created to foster conversation, exchange of ideas and action in support of good government.

The event will be held at 7PM at Ida Lee Park Recreation Center, 60 Ida Lee Drive Northwest, Leesburg, VA.

DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN?

LCSO Seeks Public's Assistance to Locate Missing Teen Possibly in the Company of an Adult Male

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance to help identify a man believed to have provided assistance to a missing juvenile.

Destiny A. Boccone, 16, left her residence in Ashburn, VA on May 16th on her own accord. Loudoun Sheriff's Investigators believe the missing teen may be in the company of an adult male.

NEVER BEEN DONE

The list of people reads like the phone book. It is the list of people who decided to help build the Sheriff's substation.


It began with dedicated county staff who pleaded for help to find a site. School Board members pitched in (see "Backstory below), then citizens weighed in and the public-- the entire county-- voted to fund it. 700 citizens turned out for town hall meetings during the spike in violent crime 2 years ago demanding it to be built.

When normal bonds were not available the county board of supervisors jumped in to find the money using special construction funds from the state found by Supervisor Delgaudio. Chairman York and Supervisor Buckley found funds for staffing. Every board of supervisor member expressed support for keeping the building and staffing together year in and year out as each new obstacle or emergency occurred.

Sheriff Steve Simpson, Congressman Frank Wolf, the FBI, the DEA, the Virginia State Police, Postal Inspectors, Nineteen Neighborhood Watches and Captain Ricky Frye, and deputy James Spurlock trained Sterling citizens over the years and patrolled the streets to herald a parnership with citizens and to fight crime.

Its never been done, but now it has been done. This great effort was done with the full participation of most citizens in Sterling who welcomed the additional help and the goal of our first ever Sheriff's substation has arrived.

Its in full operation. This is the official ceremony most of you have worked for years to get.


Backstory on the Sheriff's SubStation that could NOT be built.

Many years ago, Sterling School Board member Warren Guerin recieved a desperate phone call from me.

I told him "Loudoun County can not find a property in all of Eastern Loudoun to sell to the county for the use of a substation".

As funny, sad and completely pathetic as that sounds, that is what county officials told me in my 2nd term after six years of looking. At a community meeting, staff listed fifty locations that they had asked to sell them a place for the station.

Fifty property owners refused the county.

I have not forgotten how important cooperation between government bodies and everybody that makes up our Sterling community. Everybody and everything has an impact on the quality of life here.

I asked Warren Guerin if he could look into a unused or unprogrammed use of school property in Sterling. He went to the school board and quickly came back with a five acre site next to Rolling Ridge Elementary School.

That began the process of considering that site for the substation, a location that could not be found for 7 years of looking by county staff.

Things have turned around. It is a time of celebration and looking to the future.
