Nice article and fun facts. Not sure what forecast you're looking at, though. Mine says snow TuesdayRead More night!
Todd Richissin (Editor) March 21, 2014 at 11:02 am
Spring snow, Arva! The old man's dead. Or so I wish. " (We'll consider Tuesday's chance of snowRead More showers a brief evil side of spring.)"
Davin Peterson March 21, 2014 at 12:26 pm
It may be spring, but there is a chance of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday of next week.

If everyone of those people had guns with them, there wouldn't be 12 dead people. There would be oneRead More dead killer and no dead victims. It's just that simple, people. WAKE UP!!! Gun control is socialist issue, and this is what happens when it exists!! Wake up, people.

...and you're an idiot, as are all the Tea Party imbeciles....I mean Republicans.
TheRepublican September 22, 2013 at 06:10 am
I'm a billon times smarter than you which isn't saying much. The Tea Party runs this country nowRead More whether you like it or not. My comments are correct. If everyone in Amreica carried an automatic wepon then then these things wouldn't happen. Common sense would have occurred to the killer and he'd realize "Gee...I might get killed doing this" thus he wouldn't even bother. Don't give me any of that insanity crap either. That's just another excuse the socialists use to allow more people to live off of welfare. It's just that simple, people.

I will truly miss Tom Wilkins. He has been a special friend to our family and a mentor to ourRead More children. His drive and dedication to the community has been inspiring. He was determined to make a difference in the lives of our children through many avenues, including the Martin Luther King Jr Foundation, NAACP, College Partnership Program and Medical Care For Children. I will miss my friend.

I had the pleasure of working with Tom in the Reston Republican group and the Reston Association.Read More He was a very strong willed, very able man, which when coupled with his temperament that let him see both sides of an argument, won many people to his way of thinking. We will miss him.

I've known Dr. Wilkins ever since I first met him as a kid around here, and I have to say that heRead More served as an inspiration to all Restonians, but especially so for the black Americans who call it home. The work that Dr. Wilkins did with the youth was amazing, and he created an awe inspiring image for us all to look up towards. We will miss him dearly, and I know that we were all better off for having known him. His legacy will not be forgotten. God Bless his family and loved ones, and may he forever Rest in Peace.

The Reston Community lost one of its most distinguished residents and community leaders today. RestRead More in Peace, Bill, and thanks for all you did for this community.

I briefly worked as his assitant and it didn't take me long to realize just how ahead of his timeRead More Patrick was. He always had the betterment of the community at heart and has improved the lives of so many. He was a very likeable man who I am proud to have known. Patrick I know you're in a better place, but we'll miss you, I'll miss you, and Reston will miss you.

As a planning professor and mentor, there was none better than Patrick Kane. He left a legacy ofRead More hope, inspiration, creativity, and problem solving for future generations of practitioners and teachers. Pat taught me that children are the key to successful community planning because of their exuberance, resiliency, and fun loving nature. He used to say, "teach a child about how a community works and you have a citizen for life." He is dearly missed!

I met Pat Kane in 1978 when I started at my first real job after high school. I was regularlyRead More picking up blueprints and drawings from his business on Lake Anne. Pat had a great sense of humor and would always warmly greet me. One day he saw that I was driving a broken-down Ford Pinto. Pat threw me his car keys and said, "Take my car and have fun!" I was astounded because he barely knew me. I drove all over Reston that day in Pat's convertible (I think it was red), with everyone waving to me because they thought it was Pat. He was that kind of guy and even though its been almost 30 years since I last saw him, I never forgot him.
