An introductory training for Arlington County’s macroinvertebrate monitoring program will be offered on September 10, 2014. Stream monitors visit a monitoring site three times a year with their team and collect data on the health of Arlington’s streams. After attending the training, you will have the opportunity to join a team to monitor a local stream site. Stream monitors should be able to carry 10 pounds and walk on uneven surfaces, such as rocks in a stream. Monitors also frequently need to bend over, squat down, and then stand back up. Equipment is provided to each monitoring team. Please note that participation in an introductory training is required to join a stream team. By attending this training, you are under no obligation to join a team.

An RSVP is required to attend. Contact Jen McDonnell at jmcdonnell@arlingtonva.us.

The Knights of Columbus are continuing its tradition of charity by hosting another antique car show to provide funding to the Honor Flight Network in support of our WWII verterans on Saturday, 6 September. The Honor FLight Network flies WWII veterans to Washington, DC to visit their WWII memorial. We will be having a festive day with mostly antique vehicles but several unique vehicles to include an old firetruck and several unique overseas security vehicles will be present. We hope to attract more than 75 classic vehicles.

The venue for the event is beautiful, located on the grounds of an old 110 year old stone mansion home surrounded by century old oak trees. There is also a playground for children and food and drinks will be available. Other fun events are planned.

Old cars, motorcycles, trucks, etc are welcome and entrants can call ahead to make a reservation or simply drive up the day of the event. A $15.00 registration fee will go directly to the Honor Flight Network.

Please come out and enjoy the day and honor and assist our WWII veterans who sacrificed so much. They deserve our support. Thank you, John M. Hampson, Arlington resident, Knight and an events organizer.

The Arlington Historical Society (AHS) kicks off its fall 2014 programming with Chief James Schwartz of the Arlington County Fire Department, who will provide an historical overview of the ACFD beginning with the formation of the first volunteer fire company in 1898 through the hiring of its first career staff in 1940. The chief will continue the discussion of the department’s evolution over the years as it has adapted to meet a growing community’s needs. ACFD was the lead firefighting agency that responded to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the Pentagon, and Chief Schwartz led the unified command fire and rescue effort.

Chief Schwartz joined Arlington Fire in 1984, serving in a variety of fire department positions including assistant chief for operations. In April 2003, he was assigned to the Office of the County Manager where he served as the Director of Emergency Management until his appointment to Fire Chief the following year.

The Arlington County Fire Department consists of 320 personnel that provide fire, EMS, hazardous materials, and technical rescue response to an urban community of 213,000 residents in an area of 26 square miles.

The hour-long program will begin at 7:00pm at Walter Reed Community Center (2909 S. 16th Street, Arlington, VA 22204). Note that this is a one-time change-of-venue from Arlington Central Library; AHS programming will return to the library in October. A question-and-answer session will follow. The program is free and open to the public.

Dominion Resources supports the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), an extremist group that promotes voter-suppression efforts, stand-your-ground gun laws, and a host of other noxious measures with a big-business, anti-consumer, pro-polluter agenda. As Virginia’s largest public utility, Dominion has no business supporting ALEC’s extreme politics. Help call attention to Dominion’s ALEC membership and demand that Dominion sever its ties with ALEC now. Join Oceana, Sierra Club VA Chapter, Progress VA, and other groups in this event!
