July 1980

Voi. 14 No. 6 SER VING THE PEOPLE OF CABIN JOHN AND BEYOND July-August 1980 Your Paper, Your Community and YOU What’s more interesting to read? A comm~nlty newspaper that’s full of bland filler arctlcles or one that reports on actual goings-on and neigh- borhood issues? Similarly isn’t a community a better place to live in if pe~ple pitch in to make things hap- pen? In this respect, your editor notes that only one teen availed herself of the News’ offer of free ads to help kids find summer work. Furthermore, although we all get a kick out of the crab feast when it hap- pens The Community Association has had a devil of a time find- ing someone to organize the event this year. So, if you like where you live, keep its’ special feel- ing alive. Pitch in. Help with the crab feast and other comm- unity events. And as far as your community newspaper goes, use it– for more than wrapp- ing fish. The paper has ads. It has barter and carpool col- umns. We”ll print announcements arctioies,letters etc. Make it happen~ .’ ,~’~~’., L ;&. EXT.A!EXTRAI Shopping Center Poll!

I suspect that the mile walk to Glen Echo deters many would-be:rush-hour bus riders. Some of you may reeell that Cabin John had rush hour bus service until fairly recent- ly. In fact the bus ran all the way out to the Model Basin. I have a suggestion that just might,click if it were brought tothe attention of Metrobus officials. The N-9 ,bus that connects Montgomery Mall with downtown runs on Canal Rd. Concievably, that bus cou~ld pick up pass- engers at the Cabin John ‘exit/entr ramp. <~ ~ How many area residents would use a rush-hour bus to downtown if it stopped at • that location? Ferhaps the _~WS could take a poll? Yours truly, Charles Bookman ed.note- would you use a bus? Drop a postcard to the village news and we’ll send a letter ‘and the results of the poll to Congressman Barnes, The County Administrator, the Stai~ Dele~5:.:e and to Metro- bus autho~ .!.~ as. • ~ ~’ ~~~_~-?4~T~’~-~. / /l CLASSIFIEDS Cost 50¢ a line.

What he had viewed as a personal problem at the local level suddenly be- came everyone’s problem at tlm national level, There uas, as he s~u it, a need for a nation- al citizens’ organization devoted to the protectioT, of all Ameri- cans from excessive noise. A year ago, ~.’ith other inter- ested citizens from around t~e U.5., Sor~yl formed an ad hoc committee with the mission of organizing a national volunteer organization against noise, in August, 1979, the National Al- liance for Quieter Communities was incorooratgd and Frank 5cr- dyl was named ~reasurer. lhJs Spring, our neighbor and fellow noiee-fighter Frank Ssr- dyl intends to retire From the National Institutes of ~lea!t~ ~ and to devote himself full time to volunteer ~..ork aoainst nuisa.
