Weekend roundup


Tomorrow is the last day to vote absentee for Tuesday's election. You can vote until 8:00 pm tonight at either the Voter Registration Office (801 Sycolin Road, S.E., Suite 102, Leesburg) or the Cascades Senior Center (21060 Whitfield Place, Sterling). Tomorrow you've got 8:30-5:00 at the Voter Registration Office and 9:00-5:00 at the Cascades Senior Center. Please vote absentee if you are a registered voter that cannot make it to the polls on Tuesday!

Tomorrow is also the Brambleton Blood Drive. The INOVA Blood Mobile will be at the BTC near Harris Teeter from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. Call 1-866-BLOODSAVES to make an appointment. You will need a photo ID; please allow one hour for donation.

And finally - you know I don't like to scold. But there's some bad stuff going on in Legacy Park. First, there's a guy with a Rottweiler who doesn't pick up his dog's poop. He lets his dog run off-leash in various common areas and pee on other people's fences. Yesterday he left a giant pile of poop in Legacy Park near the playground (which was picked up later by a kindhearted resident/dogwalker). He's been confronted by neighbors and just doesn't seem to care. Hopefully someone will file a formal complaint with the HOA, since he's a repeat offender and has clearly violated multiple portions of the pet policy.

Second - yesterday a Brambletonian with his toddler in tow stumbled on a box of condoms, with one opened, near the playground. It's great that people are having safe sex and all, but I just don't think that the kids who are buying these (self-checkout at the Teet, no doubt) are really getting any action. Anyway, no one likes to find condoms, new or used, in the park. Take your condoms and your dog poop and put them in the garbage cans. Your community thanks you.

Even though this is a condom related story, thanks for referencing me on your blog!
