LCSO Warns Residents of Two Ongoing Scams

September 29, 2012 by Contributor News, Public Safety Comments Off on LCSO Warns Residents of Two Ongoing Scams
sheriff_logo

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is reminding residents to be wary of two scams; an online rental scam and a sweepstakes scam. The online rental scam advertises a property for rent, typically at a low price. The ‘owner’ will ask the victim to send their information via email and will give often quickly reply that they have been approved. They will then ask the victim to ‘wire’ the money for deposit. When the victim goes to move in they find out the house was not for rent. Potential renters seeking rental space online should be wary of owners who are unable to show the property before you send a deposit, owners who request that you send your deposit via money transfer and owners with overseas phone numbers. The “Sweepstakes” scam can occur via U.S. Mail, telephone or e-mail. The victim is contacted advising they have won the New York Lottery, International Lottery or some other type of Lottery. In order for them to receive their winnings, they have to wire money to pay for the taxes associated with their winnings. If you have been a victim of either of these scams, you are asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021.

Farm Bureau Urges Voters To Choose ‘Yes’ on Question 1

September 26, 2012 by Contributor Elections, News Comments Off on Farm Bureau Urges Voters To Choose ‘Yes’ on Question 1

Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members and other property rights advocacy groups have posted signs in their yards and around the state urging Virginians to vote yes on Question 1.

That’s because they are supporting an amendment to Virginia’s constitution to further protect individuals’ private property rights. The passage of Question 1 at the polls on Nov. 6 will protect everyone—farmers, homeowners, business and any privately-owned land—from eminent domain abuse.

“This amendment to the constitution in no way prohibits localities, states or utilities from using eminent domain for building roads, schools or other legitimate public uses. It will ensure that if land is taken for a legitimate public use, the property owner will receive fair compensation,” said Trey Davis, VFBF assistant director of governmental relations. “Under no circumstances can private property be taken for private revenue, increasing the amount of tax revenue or under the guise of economic development.” … Continue Reading

By Rev. Dr. David Milam, Pastor

In October 2012, St Andrew Presbyterian Church, 711 West Main Street, Purcellville, will be starting on an exciting journey: The Year of the Bible is a comprehensive, congregation-wide program of Bible reading.

Autumn Joy with Joshua’s Hands

September 25, 2012 by Contributor Events, Lifestyle Comments Off on Autumn Joy with Joshua’s Hands

As the seasons change and we start to bring another year to a close, Joshua’s Hands will again offer their annual Fall Festival as a free gift to the community – to celebrate the joy of autumn and the change of seasons – a time to be grateful.

This festival has become a Loudoun tradition you won’t want to miss! Located on Rt. 9 just five miles west of Waterford, the Guthrie farm offers views of the mountains and a gathering place for festival goers.

Joshua’s Hands was established in January of 1999, after Joshua’s death (October of 1998) in a car accident. He was 16 and the second of seven children. Joshua’s Hands has a five-fold ministry – like the fingers on a hand: the Annual Fall Festival, American Heritage Education, Community Service, Teen Safe Driving and Scholarships. As part of the heritage programming, Joshua’s Hands offered quilting camps this summer. They also offered two Valiant Warrior Quilting Events that brought together the community (quilters and non-quilters) to make quilts for wounded warriors. In the process, friendships were made, skills were learned and quilts were sent to the front lines to comfort wounded warriors. (233 quilts since January 2011.) … Continue Reading

Community Cancer Support Group Forming

September 25, 2012 by Contributor Events, Lifestyle Comments Off on Community Cancer Support Group Forming

The statistics of a person having a bout with cancer sometime in their lifetime are staggering: For men, it is 1 out of 2; women, 1 out of 3. Because of the emotional upheaval that a diagnosis can cause, most people tend to keep it quiet and sort through things by themselves or with their closest family members. A person with cancer can feel very alone, confused, and frightened.

The Cancer Support Community, which is just being initiated, will support and strengthen people with cancer as well as their families— both physically and emotionally— and discuss healing practices that should be followed regardless of whether using Conventional Treatment, Integrative Treatment (a combination), and/or Alternative Therapies. … Continue Reading

Ida Lee Tennis Team Captures 2012 Leesburg Cup

September 18, 2012 by Contributor Sports Comments Off on Ida Lee Tennis Team Captures 2012 Leesburg Cup

Team Ida Lee finished one point better than runner-up Middleburg Tennis Club to win the 20th annual Leesburg Cup championship at the Ida Lee Tennis Center on Sunday, September 16. Ida Lee took two matches during Sunday’s decisive last round to edge Middleburg by a score of nine to eight in total matches won. Chestnut Forks Athletic Club finished with overall seven points by winning five of their last six matches. The three-day tournament featured players aged 50 and over competing in Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles matches with a team format. Middleburg came into the event as the defending champions after winning the title in 2011. Kitty Foster captained the Ida Lee squad, and helped provide the winning margin of victory Sunday when she turned back MTC’s Kim Smithers in a pivotal head-to-head singles matchup. Foster rallied from 1-4 down in the first set to win 6-4, 6-2 and assure Ida Lee at least a tie for the Cup. The clinching point came from the team of Julie Seraphin and Cathy Browning, who won 6-2, 6-1 against Paula Klima and Susan Hanback of Chestnut Forks in the final round to give Ida Lee an insurmountable lead. Seraphin and Browning, Foster, and the mixed doubles team of Doug Whitman and Kathleen Castro each contributed two wins on the weekend for Ida Lee. Scott Carpenter (Singles), Bill Mabry and John Lombardi (Doubles), and Muriel Hunt and Steve Solow (Mixed) also won matches in their divisions. Other team members include Tammy Belote, Jane Sarver, Keith Durham, and Scott McNabb, Susan Nixon, and Ron Carpenter. The Leesburg Cup is an annual event between Ida Lee, Chestnut Forks Athletic Club, and the Middleburg Tennis Club. Originally begun at the Loudon Racquet Club and moved to Ida Lee in 2003, the event is one of three tournaments the clubs sponsor each year promoting inter-club play. The first leg of these is the Chestnut Forks Challenge Cup in early February, followed by the Morgan Cup at Middleburg in June. Ida Lee won all three championships during the past 2012 season.
