Tuesday, September 7, 2010 marks the opening of the new school year here in Fairfax County. While many of the school commuters are seasoned veterans there is a group of "newbies" every year. However, they all deserve your respect and consideration. The school zone speed limit lights have been on this week to remind us of the upcoming beginning of the school year. The law requires you to stop behind a school bus when their red lights flash.School crossing guards will be out in full force every morning and afternoon at critical intersections. They are there for one reason only - it is to protect our youngest citizens as they walk to and from school. Obey their commands.Be advised Prince William County police officers do monitor traffic regularly at school zones on a rotating basis. +++++...

The dog days of summer are starting to creep into Fairfax County.  When they do one of the best local places to escape is Burke Lake Park. Burke Lake Park  is located just off of Route 123 and a few miles from the City of Fairfax. With over 850 acres including a 220 acre lake there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. For the walkers, joggers and bikers the 5 mile dirt loop around the lake is a great way to take in all of the vistas. For the youngsters the miniature train ride chugging along at 10 MPH is a hoot. Want to get in a round of golf? You can do that too at the 18 hole Par 3 course. The Frisbee golf course is a challenge for young and old, though for the life of me the fun of trying to throw a Frisbee through a hoop eludes me! For the young and young at heart stop by and give the C...

Burke Centre: Just north of the Burke Centre Parkway, in the town of Burke (in Fairfax County), lies a large townhouse development: Burke Centre.  Built in the early 1980s when Burke was undergoing a revitalization period, these townhouses are well constructed.  Most have basements; a few even have garages.  Burke is convenient to George Mason University to the north.  Burke Centre Parkway leads west to Fairfax and Centreville and east to Springfield and Alexandria.  Interstate 495 is a short distance away. Burke Centre is roughly bounded on the north by Pohick Stream Valley Park, the east by Burke Lake Road, the south by Burke Centre Parkway, and the west by Roberts Parkway. Townhomes inside Burke Centre have experienced a very slight increase (1% to 3%) from last year to this.  Previo...

A lot is written about the traffic congestion in Fairfax County and it is true we do have our share of jammed roads during rush hour but we also have a huge amount of green space to enjoy when we aren't fretting about getting to work. One of the best known parks in our area is Burke Lake Park right off of Route 123 and a few miles from the City of Fairfax. With over 850 acres including a 220 acre lake there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. For the walkers, joggers and bikers the 5 mile dirt loop around the lake is a great way to take in all of the vistas. For the youngsters the miniature train ride chugging along at 10 MPH is a hoot.

An odd concept unique to the Northern Virginia area that goes completely against common sense, never get in the car of a stranger!!! Yet, hardworking folks in Fairfax County do it all the time.  There are designated areas, which allow commuters to park, and hop in the car of a fellow commuter and head into town via the HOV lanes.  The drivers head to the Pentagon, DC, and Crystal City.  The pick up points are organized more by word of mouth than by a transportation jurisdiction.   This is a very effective form of mass transit and cuts down on the amount of cars on Northern Virginia highways.
