SNOW AND ICE
I hope all is well. Many of you got your Christmas lights up earlier and then the snow storm hit. So I hope you are all in the Christmas spirit.
And we are all tired from bad driving conditions and shoveling snow and ice.
The plow trucks did their job. Let me know if you were missed.
Put some more lights or decorations up and celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or other seasonal holiday as best you can. This is Sterling and we have to show Loudoun how to do it you know.
>>> FIRE IN STERLING PARK
At approximately 10 p.m. hours Saturday Dec. 5, fire volunteer units from Sterling, Cascades, Fairfax County, Moorefield, and Ashburn fire stations along with Sterling Rescue responded to a reported apartment fire at 201 North Fillmore Avenue in Sterling Park.
Units arrived on the scene to find a second story apartment with heavy smoke conditions. Units were able to determine that the fire originated on the kitchen area, quickly extinguishing the hazard and beginning to remove the smoke while checking for extension in the rest of the building. There were no injuries reported.

"Cars on lawns" is the number one agenda item so it will come up at 6:30 p.m. sharp.
The amendment proposes to restrict the parking of vehicles in yards, on unpaved surfaces, and limit the amount of paved parking surface permitted in yards. The public hearing will begin at 6:30PM and will be held in the Board Room located on the 1st floor of the Loudoun County Government Center at 1 Harrison Street, S.E. in Leesburg,
This proposed amendment is intended to address some of the key issues raised during the Potomac/Sterling Outreach project that occurred from February through October of 2008 when over 1,000 Sterling citizens turned out for four (4) nights over a 2 week period to repeatedly demand county action.
Sterling residents have publicly demanded action on this type of neglect by the county for years.
Along with overcrowding, garbage, illegal aliens, crime, tall grass, blight, and abandoned vehicles, this is right up on the list of top ten safety, health and welfare issues that impact our quality of life.

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, December 10, 2009, on the use of the Loudoun County Courthouse grounds, to include pending applications for use and any rules, regulations or conditions for the use of the grounds.

Education Court in Ashburn, Virginia, 20148. We have other meetings
there on Thursday starting at 4, the time for the Religious

Opinion: I thought the board of supervisors had made itself perfectly clear but it seems "additional instruction is necessary" from the board of supervisors.
But the "citizens committee will not meet until Dec. 22". I think the board should "fire" the volunteer citizens committee and replace it with citizens who can follow the direction from the board of supervisors.
In the meantime, could you tell the board to "definitely positively absolutely allow the placement of religious displays on the courthouse grounds today, or sooner and give staff the same instructions" at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
