Morning Notes


Published:

Two Attempted Robberies Last Weekend — In both cases a group of men accosted (in one case grabbed and threw to the ground) the victims, both men. Neither incident resulted in any property being taken and neither were reported to police, who found out on a community listserv. [Bethesda Patch] State Political Heavyweight Holds Hefty Fundraiser — State Senate President Mike Miller (D-Calvert County) raised almost $200,000 at a fundraiser dinner Monday night at Congressional County Club. In attendance: newly elected 6th District Rep. John Delaney (D), County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) and his predecessor Doug Duncan, who has made clear his intent to run for his old post in 2014. [Washington Post] Photos of Winter Wonderland Celebration — Pictures from last weekend's a capella performances, ice sculpture display and, of course, Santa appearance. [Bethesda Urban Partnership via Facebook] How Virginia Wooed Major Company — Intelsat, the operator of the largest fleet of commercial broadcast satellites in the world, was looking at a planned office building in Bethesda for its new headquarters. Instead, a $1.3 million grant and tax credits from Virginia officials ended in an official announcement yesterday: Intelsat will be moving to Tysons Corner. [Washington Business Journal] Exiting School Board Member Put Kids In Private Schools — Laura Berthiaume, who didn't run for re-election on the Montgomery County School Board, says she put her kids in private schools after last school year. She also sounded off on the ability of the Board to make real progress. [The Gazette] Flickr photo by Secretary of Defense
