On January 24 a 49-year-old Ashburn man was charged with one count of use of a computer to solicit a child less than 18-years-old. In December, a detective with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Unit began an investigation into allegations that an adult male was sending inappropriate messages to an underage female. The detective is assigned to the NOVA/DC Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and continued the investigation by posing as an underage female. During online communications, Lazaro C. Hernandez arranged to meet the underage female at a Leesburg area hotel for the purpose of sexual activity. Members of the Sheriff’s Office met Hernandez at the hotel where he was arrested without incident. The Criminal Investigations Division is continuing the investigation to determine if more charges will be placed. Hernandez remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.

District Boundaries

January 28, 2013 by Blue Ridge Leader Dear Editor, Opinion Comments Off
blueridge2.jpg

In 2011, the Republicans got 60 percent of the vote while the Democrats received only 40 percent of the vote from statewide senate races. However, because the Democrats manipulated the districts, they were able to hold exactly half the seats in the senate. Thankfully Republicans in Richmond had the courage to fix the gerrymandering the Democrats had done to thwart the voters.

Democrats have been screaming “foul” because Republicans stood up for what was right and fixed it. When drawing district lines, lawmakers are supposed to keep areas of common interest together. What does Lowes Island have to do with Arlington? Democrats took a few thousand houses in Lowes Island (Sterling) and made them into an Arlington district that is represented by Senator Favola. It is gerrymandering like that, which the Democrats had hoped would go unnoticed or unchallenged, that erodes the integrity of our political process.

I hope the House passes the corrected lines so that Democrats aren’t able to thwart the will of the voters in future elections!

Senator Kaine Casts First Vote in Senate

January 25, 2013 by Contributor Government, News Comments Off
Kaine

U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement following his first vote as a senator. Kaine voted in favor of the compromise reached to reform the filibuster:

“I was honored tonight to cast my first vote as the Commonwealth’s newest U.S. Senator and I’m pleased it comes in favor of a measure to reduce some of the gridlock that has frustrated all Virginians. The Senate has been in desperate need of filibuster reform and today’s compromise will make it more difficult for a vocal few to block common sense legislation for political gain. While I have long supported a talking filibuster, I believe these reforms will help the Senate function in a more transparent and expeditious way.”

A wide selection semi-precious stones, minerals and fossils are intricately framed and secured by Dana Jansen’s elaborate wire wrapping techniques.  Curvilinear and and geometric designs in sterling silver, brass or copper wire supplement the natural beauty of druzy quartz, ammonite fossils, and a wide array of other richly colored and textured natural elements.

Kay Layne uses contrasting and harmonious colors with geometric shapes in her dramatic acrylic paintings.  Strong colors in either earth tones or sharp arresting colors in opposition to each other are imposed over flat or textured surfaces that reflect the hard environment of the Southwest.  Kay’s planar paintings speak, but leave the interpretation to the viewer.

Meet Dana, Kay and other gallery artists and enjoy wine and light fare at the free and open to the public reception at the Gallery on Saturday, May 9th, from 5-8 pm.

Carver Center

Purcellville, VA 20132

The Pickwick Players present The Drowsy Chaperone. The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical parody of American musical comedy of the 1920s. The story concerns a middle-aged, asocial musical theatre fan. As he plays the record of his favorite musical, the (fictional) 1928 hit The Drowsy Chaperone, the show comes to life onstage as he wryly comments on the music, story and actors. The Drowsy Chaperone opened on Broadway on 1 May 2006; it was nominated for multiple Broadway (2006) and London (2008) theatre awards, winning five Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards.

A wide selection semi-precious stones, minerals and fossils are intricately framed and secured by Dana Jansen’s elaborate wire wrapping techniques.  Curvilinear and and geometric designs in sterling silver, brass or copper wire supplement the natural beauty of druzy quartz, ammonite fossils, and a wide array of other richly colored and textured natural elements.

Kay Layne uses contrasting and harmonious colors with geometric shapes in her dramatic acrylic paintings.  Strong colors in either earth tones or sharp arresting colors in opposition to each other are imposed over flat or textured surfaces that reflect the hard environment of the Southwest.  Kay’s planar paintings speak, but leave the interpretation to the viewer.
