Brian Schoeneman 4Brian Schoeneman kicked off his campaign for Fairfax County Sully District supervisor Tuesday night with a big crowd of supporters at Backyard Grill in Chantilly. Here Brian addresses the crowd while Supervisor Pat Herrity and former school board member Steve Hunt, who have both endorsed him, listen to his remarks. Brian gave an excellent speech about growing business and strengthening the tax base in Sully and, for business owners, it was good to hear he would continue the tradition of a business-friendly board of supervisors since many consider Sully to be the Tysons Corner for site construction products and other industries.

Rediscovering Colombia: Opportunity and Prosperity

Deborah MunozBy Deborah Bornstein Munoz
Guest Post

Many of us are overloaded by work, business and politics and in dire need of a vacation. We all try to refocus, make time for our spouses, turn off the phones and reset priorities. My husband Tito and I did just that for three weeks in December during a visit to Colombia. Our main mission in visiting Colombia was to relax and enjoy the beaches and glorious weather, the food and music and to spend time with friends and some family members.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from all of us at LynnRMitchell.com

Christmas 12 lanternThe reason for the season….

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.” Luke 2:8-20

The true meaning of Christmas … a time for the Christian world to pause and celebrate the birth of the son of God.

Deborah’s family immigration story: little has changed

Deborah MunozBy Deborah Bornstein Munoz

Gallup came out with a new poll June 27 (see More in U.S. Would Decrease Immigration Than Increase) in which they asked:

In your view, should immigration be kept at its present level, increased, or decreased?

The conclusion was that more in the U.S. would decrease immigration than increase it. Support for increasing immigration is up, yet more would still curb it.

It sounds as if little has changed since the 1890s when my great-grandparents from Lithuania faced this (see Countries and Culture: Lithuanian Americans by Mark A. Granquist):
