Krupicka Uses Marine in Mailer — State Senate candidate Rob Krupicka has gotten the attention of a conservative web site for printing an endorsement from a Marine sergeant, along with a photo of him in uniform, on a campaign mailer. If the Marine is on active duty, such an endorsement would violate military guidelines. The Sun Gazette’s Scott McCaffrey also points out that Krupicka’s mailer also makes reference to supporting “soldiers and their families” — which would refer to members of the Army but not the Marine Corps. Krupicka, an Alexandria city councilman, is facing off against Arlington School Board Chair Libby Garvey and Del. Adam Ebbin in the Democratic primary. [Sun Gazette]

Medical Care By Lottery — Every month, the Arlington Free Clinic holds a lottery to see who will receive medical care. With demand for care exceeding supply, this month only 25 people were selected out of a pool of 140. [WAMU]

Ballston Farmers Market Starts This Week — The Ballston Farmers Market will hold its season grand opening this Thursday. The market is free and held every Thursday (until October) from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. in Wellburn Square, between N. Stuart and N. 9th Streets.

    What’s with the bagels?

      Wondering that myself. Why is it that the morning notes picture is often so random and why is there never a caption? Such a photo deserves an impressive or amusing caption!!

        If you hover over the photo with your mouse you’ll see the caption: “A minivan is pranked…”

    So long as they aren’t “day olds” I don’t think I’d be too upset with that prank. Though…the prank is a little bland…they all look like plain bagels.

      Perhaps it is a hidden message. There are 42 bagels.

    That is just sad. The USA is the richest country in the history of the world, ever. It is in the best interests for our country and society that its citizens have access to medical care and remain healthy.

    It’s truly pathetic that some people literally have to win a lottery to get medical care in America.
