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

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
