Many of these kids play travel hockey on other clubs such as Reston Raiders, Washington Little Capitals, and even Montgomery Youth Hockey.
The Arlington Middle School Hockey Team is only in its
It's clear that the kids on the team are excited about playing hockey with other kids from Arlington county. Arlington County is the only school district lacking a CBHL Tier II Youth Hockey Program and Ballston Iceplex is one of the very few rinks without a Tier II program - leaving Arlington youth who want to play with the prospect of hitting the road to another jurisdiction and another club.
A special thanks to Brian Cobb, team president, and Doug Layman, team treasurer, for all their hard work and commitment.
"Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. And inside a dog, it's too dark to read." - Groucho MarxThere are a lot of lost dogs in Arlington. A good many stray cats too. These mutts and mongrels strut about with an air of defiance - defying any interloper, be it four legged or two legged, to dare to take the red squeaky chewy toy. They bark. They snarl. They tumble their prey. All while their human companions stand bleary eyed in the corner of the dog park discussing the latest in Arlington political or cultural news (like "did you see the Capitals last nite? They were barking awful!").
So many of these lost homeless dogs immigrated to Arlington because of beer and pizza. Or more specifically, because of Lost Dog Cafe and Stray Cat Cafe - local favorite watering holes. The owners were not satisfied to make the best eggplant parmigiana sub and onion rings in the county. They had a higher calling: rescuing mutts.
Now they have the Lost Dog and Stray Cat Foundation, five adoption events each weekend, and a farm in Virginia where the pups stay until they find their new best friends.
These mutts take a lot of care. Sometimes they come out of not so good situations. Sometimes they need medical care. They need food. And they need a good place to stay until adopted.
The Lost Dog and Stray Cat Foundation is a wonderful local charity. If you are looking for a charity to receive your CFC support, consider local favorite Lost Dog. CFC # 97890.

What loooonnnngggg election day voting lines??? I stood at Williamsburg Middle School from 5:15 am until 7:30 this morning at the PTA bake sale - and have gone twice to the Taylor Elementary School PTA bake sale (following the adage of vote early, vote often). In the first hour at Williamsburg, there was a long line of coffee craving crazies that wrapped down the block. But once that initial panicky rush cleared -- nothing!! No lines what so ever. Voting took all of 5 minutes.
So one has to ask, what was the real agenda of the "Vote Early, Avoid the Lines" fear mongering crowds. There can only be one answer! It is a clear anti PTA agenda! These are the Fake Communist Northern Virginians who do not believe in free enterprise and the PTA making a buck. These Fake Communist Northern Virginians wanted you to wait in long lines at the Arlington Courthouse Early Election poll - just so that you would not by a $1 cup of coffee and $1 brownie from kids putting in their community service hours. These Fake Communist Northern Virginians clearly have a socialist coffee agenda.
Hopefully when Sarah Palin gets coronated tonite as (vice) President of these Divided States, she will get some of the Alaskan State Troopers that she did not fire to investigate these matters.

I have volunteered to coach youth soccer, youth hockey, and youth blastball. I have volunteered to lead Odyssey of the Mind. I have volunteered at a soup kitchen Mirian’s Kitchen. Before law school I volunteered at AYUDA Legal Services. I am a Fake UnAmerican Communist Virginian for Obama.
My grandfather was a three-star lieutenant general. He was a Chief of Staff of Gen. Stillwell during China-Burma-India Campaign during World War II. He was in charge of military reconstruction of the Philippines after the war. He served on the front lines of the cold war in Turkey. I am named after him. My grandmother raised two children in the hills of Utah while my grandfather was away during the war. My grandmother later hosted dignitaries and taught military families and Philippinos how to make “tin can Christmas trees.” I am a Fake UnAmerican Communist Virginian for Obama.
My father wired computer boards during the 1960s and worked for a computer company called ITEL. He sold computers to governments and was on the front line of the technology revolution in the 1970s. He died on the DC10 crash in Chicago. I am a Fake UnAmerican Communist Virginian for Obama.
One of my great-grandfathers and his family crossed the country to Utah to establish a successful mining business. My maternal grandfather was an engineer, worked for Texaco in the oil fields, and invented something called “Triskalite” which was a bit like chrome. My paternal relatives traveled across the United States with the Mormons to establish the Mormon Church. I am a descendent of the first president of the Mormon Church, George Q Cannon. I am a Fake UnAmerican Communist Virginian for Obama.
I have an Uncle who served as a flying tiger during World War II. I have another uncle who served as crew during the America’s Cup years ago. I have another uncle who built a successful oyster business in Long Island. I have relatives that sold insurance, farmed the land, were firemen, worked for professional hockey, and more. I am a Fake UnAmerican Communist Virginian for Obama.
I do not believe any American politician should call any other America “Fake” or “un-American” or “Communist.” I believe any American politician who tries to gain power by turning Americans against Americans – by promoting hatred and fear of other Americans – by denigration and through disrespect - is not qualified to be the democratic leader of all Americans.
