Good morning Loudoun.

Today is the final day of the National Association of Counties Annual Conference. This afternoon we will vote on the legislative agenda that NACO will advocate for in Congress.

I sit on the Healthy Counties Advisory Board and the Health Education Sub Committee. My committees completed our legislative agenda yesterday. I asked for only one amendment; adding the words "Mental and Behavioral Health" to the legislative wording re: services allowed to be covered by ARPA funds.

I will give a full readout at our next BOS meeting. As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair.

Ma*****na will be legal in Virginia on July 1. Hereโ€™s what is and isnโ€™t permitted under the new law. - Virginia Mercury

Loudoun, I have repeatedly, loudly and consistently said that I believe ma*****na (THC) should be decriminalized. I've also consistently, repeatedly and very loudly said I don't believe ma*****na should be legalized.

The only thing that cannot be accomplished in the decriminalization of THC is making revenue off the sale of THC.

While I don't believe people should be jailed for using ma*****na (thus decriminalization) I also don't believe it's proper for the Commonwealth (or any government) to make a profit for selling ma*****na. In addition, with the exception of medical uses, I discourage THC use just as I do the use of ni****ne.

Having said all that...today one can legally use ma*****na in Virginia.
Here are the guidelines to do so.

This story was originally published on April 7, 2021, and was updated June 24, 2021. On July 1, Virginia becomes the first state in the South to legalize ma*****na. โ€œThe time has come,โ€ said House Majority Leader Charniele Herring, D-Alexandria, as the legislation she sponsored passed earlier ye...

Loudoun, a big milestone is being celebrated in Leesburg as the Battlefield Pkwy & Route 7 interchange opens tonight to vehicles. A shared-use path & sidewalk (incl ped signals & lighting) will open to peds & cyclists later this summer.

For the extraordinary effort to bring in this project under time and on budget I want to thank VOT, the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, the Town of Leesburg, Wagman General Construction and of course Loudoun's amazing DTCI staff

Western Loudoun, (especially Catoctin, Short Hill mountain residents) last term when the cell tower on Short Hill item came to the BOS for consideration, there was enormous community input. As this item has returned, the BOS has received almost no public input. In fact, I only have about 10 emails on this matter.

I'd like to hear from as many residents as possible re: this item. Please email the full Board at [email protected] to offer your opinions or thoughts, for or against.

Thanks everyone.

Loudoun, if you're not yet vaccinated, please consider that the Delta Variant of COVID is, unfortunately now in our County.

I've said many times that I would never "tell" anyone to "just get the vaccine." However, I do encourage everyone to research reputable sources of information on the COVID vaccines before making a decision to not be vaccinated. Thank everyone

Loudoun, especially people in the area of the Westpark Golf Course...PLEASE READ

We have received reports of abnormal bear activity today in the area around Westpark Golf Course in Leesburg, in between Woodburn Rd and Hawling Place, and last night on Foxfield Lane. Bears are typically shy around humans, however, one or more bears have been unusually brazen, and this morning, behaved aggressively towards a leashed dog. This is extremely unusual and could be due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to, nearby cubs, disease, or being fed by humans.

We are asking our community to be bear smart while we work with our colleagues at the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources to work on this situation and keep everyone safe.

In the meantime:
-If you see a bear, please give them as much distance as possible.
-If a bear approaches you, make loud noises, and appear "big" by waving your arms and stomping your feet. If you are at home, bang pots and pans.
-Take down your birdfeeders. Birdseed is a bear favorite, and this time of year, our wild feathered friends have many food sources to choose from.
-Make sure trash and grills are secured in bear traffic areas. This may mean putting them in your garage overnight.
-Make sure your pets are vaccinated for rabies, in the event that they encounter a wild animal who may carry the disease.
-NEVER feed a bear. A bear who becomes accustomed to humans providing a food source develops unsafe behaviors, and is not compatible with suburban life.

If you see a bear actively approaching you or your pets, not running away when you make loud noises, or acting aggressively, please call Loudoun County Animal Services at 703-777-0406 immediately.

This is my father who we lost in 2014. About three years before his death Daddy decided he was finally able to visit the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Having completed two tours of combat duty in Vietnam, Daddy always said,

"I don't need to see their names on some wall, I knew them for myself."

When he finally asked to go it was an extraordinary sad, yet powerful day. He found name after name of young men he knew. At one point, he slowly raised his arm, and held it against the wall. For a while he didn't say a word, then he said,

"They're okay...they're all okay.

This for me is Memorial Day. Not the cookouts, or sales, not even the day off. Memorial Day is my Father, and this wall.

Loudoun, have a safe and meaningful Memorial Day.

Loudoun, I guess there is a day for just about everything. So...Happy Transportation Day.
