The i Reverend Borg, hea~,aster of St. Andrews Episc0pal School located in the Clara Barton School Building, said recently in an interview with The ¥illag~ New~. :S~.~ndrews is an ePt~a~palian-oriented ind%- :p4ndent private school offering college pre- paratory education for grades 7-12. As of next year its enrollment will be almost 200 s~udents. ” Thegil.a~eNewo asked Rev. Borg about Some .community issues. Under the terms of its lease with the county, the school is required to rent space to the Post 0ffice~The Cabin John 5 and 4 Year_01d School and the Clara Barton Day Care cBnter. ~ev. Borg says that relations among the various users of the Clara Barton Building are excellent. St. Andrews is responsible for the upkeep of theschool yard, although the county mows the lawn and shovels the snow. Recently, the school placed trash cans in the play area. The school jan£tor;~empties the cans as necessary. Perhaps next summer’s trash problem in the:play area ~ will be less, because of St. Andrews renewed concern for the school yard: In contrast to the school yard, the playing fields are operated by the County Recreation Department. Any county resldent can use the playlngfields for organized sports. All that is necessary is to call the Recreation Depart- men: to reserve playing time. Their number is 468-4206. St. Andrews would welcome new students from Cabin John (at present only one Cabin Jane attends). StY. Andrews is looking for average kids who are motivated to learn. The most openings are in next year’s seventh grade class. Tuition is $3,000 per year, which is on the low side of area private schools. Substantial scholarship aid is available and is awarded based on need.

The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. (COG) will soon vote for or against this test proposal. Allen van Emmerik, President cf our Citizens Association, has written a letter to the COG in support Of the scatter plan. As in the past, we can expect other communities to vocally oppose any kind of a scatter plan. They evi- dently feel that it is too much ~o,hear possibly ~0 Jets a day while it is all right for us to hear ~00 Jet a-day: Let’sreview the facts: 1. In 1966, when Jets were first introduced into National Airport, a scatter plan was used. 2. In 1967, after receiving pressure from the other com- . munlties, the FAA started .- ,-usln~ Cabin John as a con- ~ ~.~ ~ for Jets to ” :. ; ;apOly “increased climb power”. :~…~:~Thvre were no publiclhcarings, leakyLock The C&O•Oanal has been dry this year from lock8-12 (below SevenLocks. Road) because of rcpalrs that are being made at Lode 12~ The ” problem is that ~he canal was drained to facilitate repairs and then the. repair work exceeded the budget.for the Project and all work stopped. The budget snafu will• be solved in due course, but in the meantime winter skaters will have to test the ice below lock 8 or above lock 12. Mr. ~a!lor IS also sending investigators to track down the strong sewage odor that • prevails at lock 8. ” B , , ‘ John before turning into Virginia. • When our neighbors acrozs the river complained, tk FAA quickly backed down. 4, In 1977, the FAA finally proposed a true scattering of Jets (Jets are scattered in vir- tually every•other air- port in the U.S.) When the Cog failed to support the.plan, the FAA con- tinued its present discriminatory policy. 5. In 1978, when the FAA offered to extend the flight path from lO to l~ males to thenorth, Cabin John dld not support the proposal. Cabin John has never advocated the shifting of noise from lts location to•one other location. Instead Cabin John has always advocated the eoual sharin~ of the noise B-~n, as much as possible • , THE., BOTTOM LINE IS: As a group and as a :community, we must stand together in trying to get a scatter plan implemented.

The articles and letters were forwarded to ~TROBUS and to Congress- man Barnes. METROBUS respond- :ed by sayingLthat the routes • that pass nearest to Cabin John generallyhave standing room only. On the other hand, Congressman Barnes would like to meet with a dele- gation from the CoTanunity Association to discuss our needs and to explore possibi- lltles. Congressman Barnes’ letter has been turned over to the Trans- portation Committee of the Com- munity Association. Over the next two months this,Committee wlll pin down the number of potential bus riders in our area and wlll develop alter- native ways of securing bus service–through METRO,the County’s ride-on program, van pooling, etc. After the Assoc- iatlon knows what it wants and can support, it will be in a • . better posltion to discuss • wlxat is needed with Congres- sman Barnes, rather than to Just voice problems. • H£ VILLAG£ n£W$ Editors.Betsy Cheney and Charlie . •~ B0okman Typing– Pat Duff Business –.

I sense a certain anxiety on the part of management. The Redstone Corporation was to have been the fireball rental agent. It fizzled, and has been replaced byMr. Anderson, an employee of the developer. Limited negotiations with no’ particular prospect have been conducted with 7-11, Safeway, Peoples, and a locally-spon- sored restaurant. There is also no progress yet in office ren- tals. Mr. Anderson would much appreciate any help in finding tenants thatthe Community can give. :Contact him through me o~ the Village News. The November meeting of the Association will be-held on the 25th of November in the library of the Clara Barton school building. There will be no December meeting because of the holidays. The committee~structure is off to a good’start. Every committee has garnered some volunteers, but more are still needed. There are nine committees. We need five volunteers on each in order to spread the work load. The Transportation.Committee, especially, seemsto be off to a fast start, and needspeople to prepare for a winter meeting with Congressman Mike Barnes. Come to the November community meeting’. Sign up for a com- mittee. Help us make Cabin John a better’place to live.
