I am a volunteer in another county (not Fairfax) We do it for our neighbors, family and friends. Sometimes we volunteer to cover concerts (for the most part is checking-out people who are over-heated or who have a minor injury). If the volunteers don't cover the concert then career have to do it. That could mean overtime. I don't begrudge anyone overtime (we could all use it I am sure). For

I joined Worldgate Sport and Health when it opened. I have never had a problem at that gym. I also belong to Gold's and it's a great gym too. My only complaint about Sport and Health is that the steam room and sauna are not hot enough (women's locker room). Membership are not at either gym 24/7 so it's a good idea to make an appointment (what a novel idea). I also find when I have a concern (

One of the things I like about living in the town of Herndon is that they pick your trash up and you don't pay extra for it. It is in your taxes. They do a good job. large pick- ups are extra.

Yea, pretty bad. One of the windows on my car would not go back up. I priced it at the dealer. They wanted $800 to fix it (replace the motor). I priced it at another place and they quoted me $450. Don't you love the smirk on their slimy face as they give you the quote? Then I say, hmmm, HONEY I think I'll go get a few more quotes.

Truckin, (like the name by the way). You seem bright. Think about it. If you are going to have to "encourage" someone to get in the car, and if the car is angled down and away from you (downhill?) it would be easier to get them in the car without hitting their head on the door. They also don't block traffic. Ever seen a teenage girl driving with all her friends at the mall? Park out of the

Last I heard the police cannot pick and choose which call to respond to. If someone calls the police to report a crime they have to respond. If there is enough evidence to charge the person (and if they are exceptionally rude, abusive, obnoxious, belligerent, and/or stoned) they probably won't get much of a break. Here is another thought. I don't feel sorry for pancake boy. Did he steal? Was

Fairfax County has always provided transportation to summer school via pick-up locations at elementary schools. The regular bus stops are only during the regular school year. If you child is in Special Education they may be able to provide a handicap bus.

I don't know about the psychological profile of a cop. There are good and bad in every walk of life. Would you really want Bill Gates or Mr. Rodgers out there dealing with violent crack dealers? Dr. Phil and Oprah could handle them. She'd kick their butts and he'd fix their heads. Or worse yet, someone like James Manson? If all our cops were like him the gangs would leave for good. We could

Know what amazes me? I constantly hear people complain we need more officers. People want gang control. We need more patrols here, there, everywhere. Catch this criminal and that one (but don't pick on me). But then when it is time to pay them all we hear is screaming. Everyone wants them but they don't want to pay them. Do you have any idea how much abuse they put up with? They are shot

How about an albino. They would need a medical waiver. Can they get one? If they get a medical waiver how would they have proof when they are pulled over?

I bet it is much easier for them to get a shoplifter in the car when it is parked like that rather than having to drag them all the way to the parking garage. Just a thought.

OK, fellow "postees". I got the point on the long post. I'll try to behave. My apologies. Now, why not be original and post real advice? Although I am flattered that you find my post so interesting you need to quote, quote, quote...uh,er, quote it. I'd like to think someone has something of their own to write.

I don't care if they have a quota or not. As long as the tickets they write are legitimate who cares? Don't want the ticket don't break the law. I find it amazing that people just don't get that concept.

Yes, and it comes out of your fines. Now, if you don't give them any work (i.e., don't break the law), then they won't get overtime! What a novel concept. It is merely an issue of supply and demand. I say the more overtime they get, the fewer drunks on the road for me to dodge.

Gravis, Gravis, Gravis. Is there anyone you like? Personally, I would not want to deal with the nasty, rude "public". It takes more patience than I could ever muster. Ever been spat on when you were trying to help someone? Ever have a battered woman attack you when you were trying to take her "husband, BF, whatever in to custody?" Ever meet someone who is willing to give their life for a total

Hi, Anyone interested in stopping predatory towing? I had a tow truck driver break in my car to "verify" my parking pass. They towed the car and the pass was "magically" lost. Hmmmmm. The police officer asked them to produce the parking pass but it was "not there". I was told I will have to file in civil court. Huh? This is the third illegal tow from my residence in 18 months. There was on
