Redskins Stampede Buffalo Bills 42-17 In Preseason Kick Off

In a welcome relief from this year's blistering heat, Friday night's preseason opening game against the Buffalo Bills was relatively cool and mild and had the Redskins stampeding over the Bills 42-17. Speaking of cool, the 2010-2011 Redskins have a new coach in Michael Shanahan and a new starting QB in Donovan McNabb; McNabb threw a four-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Armstrong to open the Redskins’ multiple scoring drives. Rex Grossman hurled a pair of touchdown passes, including a forty-four-yard bomb to Devin Thomas to widen the Redskins lead further, and continued scoring almost at will against the seemingly hapless Bills until the scoreboard lights at FedEx Field revealed the outcome of the decisive victory at Redskins 42, Bills 17.

Hurricane Katrina Disaster Revisited

Hurricane Katrina was one of this nation's worst natural disasters. In the past two years our federal government has provided more than $114 billion in aid. But, the relief and recovery of the area where the eye of the storm passed has been suprisingly dismal. While the French Quarter and huge sections of Uptown and the Garden District came back to life, the story is altogether different in the low income neighborhoods to the east, along Interstate 10. They are empty, quiet, and stuck in the same place when the water receded two years ago. Residents have no power, no water, and are living in toxic ruins. But there is hope for New Orleans. Thousands of volunteers are coming from accross the United States to restore this beloved city.

Montgomery County Agricultural Fair

A 1940s project to get young people involved in agriculture and homemaking skills turned into one of the largest county fairs on the East Coast -- and it was started by kids. The first Montgomery County Agricultural Fair began as a one-day livestock show in 1949, sponsored by the county's 4-H Club, an organization for young people interested in farming. The fair was a way for farmers to show their best farm animals to each other and to get youth excited about farming, gardening, and homemaking skills such as preserving foods. Over the years, the fair has become a way to get a peek into farm life, as fewer people are involved in farming.

Directions : I-270 North, take Exit 11 (Montgomery Village/Fairgrounds); At next light make a right onto Route 355 South; make a right onto Perry Parkway; Fairground entrance will be on ...
