Lunch Hour Buzz — Sept. 22, 2009
A daily digest of what’s going on in Fredericksburg, and what news from elsewhere is relevant here. Send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
City Council meets tonight. (That’s why this post is later than usual. I start my day later when I know I’ve got to end it with a government meeting.) They’re going to revisit the rental housing inspection program in a 6 p.m. work session, and consider a lease agreement for the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation’s proposed youth baseball complex at the 7:30 p.m. meeting.
Old cars – If you’re looking for something to do on your lunch break, the Model A Restorers Club National Tour has parked about 50 Model A cars along the 100 and 200 blocks of Hanover Street. They’ll be there until 3 p.m. today. The group is having its annual conference in Charlottesville, but made a day trip to Fredericksburg.
More press – A Financial Times reporter stopped in Fredericksburg recently for man-on-the-street interviews about how retirees are feeling about Obama’s healthcare plan. See the story here and a slideshow of those she interviewed here.
