To commemorate the end (for now) of the "County Government Head-to-Head Tour," I've done a little cleaning up of the sidebar and replaced the background. What you're now looking at is sunset at the Maryland Farms Shopping Center, on Cherry Hill Road straddling the County line.
By "for now," I mean that our adventures in Rockville are not quite finished. An appointment has been made to meet with Roger Berliner (D-Potomac) again . . . in June. So look out for that! Summer means a lot of things for Just Up The Pike, namely more attention to the blog, and I'm looking forward to being more involved in it.
ANYWAY: There's been much talk over the past several months of what will happen to our beloved "the Turf" in Downtown Silver Spring. A lot of the discussion has been sparked by Finding Our Turf, last summer's documentary about the field produced by the Silver Spring Youth Collaborative. I've been anxious to see it - and now everyone can, because it's been made available online. (Thanks, Internet Archive!)
There's also a poll for what you think should be done with the "Veterans' Field" area. Take a second to cast your vote! Who knows - this might actually convince a few people in Rockville that Turf is the way to go.
