Planned Community's Green Open Space Under Seige Again


Reston’s comprehensive plan states this land is planned for private recreation use.

Reston National Golf Course Advertised to be Sold for Residential Development

We will mobilize our allies and supporters as necessary to oppose any attempt to amend the Comprehensive Plan that would threaten our open space.”

— Connie Hartke

RESTON, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2017 / — This morning Rescue Reston was alerted by a supporter that ARA Newmark, an investment advisory firm, has listed the Reston National Golf Course property as being for sale for development purposes. The marketing materials state that the property consists of “168 Acres of By-Right Residential Development.”

Screen shots from the ARA Newmark website may be viewed here:

The statement that development of the land is “By-Right” is highly misleading. The Development Plans filed with Fairfax County for the Golf Course and the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan clearly designate the land as open space to be used as a golf course. Any residential development plan would require a review by County Planning Commission staff, a public hearing before the County Planning Commission, a public hearing before the County Board of Supervisors, and ultimately an amendment to the County Comprehensive Plan.

Rescue Reston’s Attorney Randy Greehan was informed by the County Zoning Administrator’s office earlier today that they are aware of no applications having been filed on the Golf Course property.

The owner of the Golf Course, RN Golf Management (which is owned by Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company), asserted five years ago that it had a right to develop the Golf Course for residential purposes but the County Zoning Administrator refuted that position in a letter to RN Golf’s attorney in June 2012. The Zoning Administrator’s position was overruled in part by the Board of Zoning Appeals, but the BZA’s decision was vacated by the Fairfax County Circuit Court, which held that the Zoning Administrator’s 2012 letter was in effect an advisory opinion and not appealable. The result of those legal proceedings is that RN Golf will be required to go through the formal processes before the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors described above, and to obtain an amendment of the County Comprehensive Plan, before the Golf Course can be developed.

"After consulting with our attorney, we suspect this is the first round to determine what the market will bear. A call for bids, if you will," said Connie Hartke, president of Rescue Reston. "RN Golf let it be known in this letter of March 4, 2016 that they intend to pursue “available redevelopment options” to develop Reston’s permanent open space. This is why we have remained vigilant and are able to react so quickly to this news today."

“We will mobilize our allies and supporters as necessary to oppose any attempt to amend the Comprehensive Plan that would threaten our open space. We ask that supporters who wish to stay well informed subscribe to our newsletter or update your contact information at,” adds Hartke.

About Reston

Reston was planned as one of the nation’s first “new towns” where people could live, work and play. It was imagined since its inception to be a community with concentrated areas for open space and recreation for all to enjoy. The Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan for Reston very clearly states that the land at Reston National Golf Course is planned for private recreation use, more specifically to remain as a golf course. This plus 5 lakes, 55 miles of trails and the Silver Line Metro, Reston is an attractive community for employers and residents.

Renowned International Law Experts Recommend International Criminal Court (ICC), if Sri Lanka continues to Fail to Act

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, February 28, 2017 / —

In a Press Conference held in Geneva within hours of Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Mangala Smaraweera’s address to the UN Human Rights Council, a group of well renowned international Law experts recommended Sri Lanka be referred International Criminal Court (ICC), ”if Sri Lanka continues in bad faith and/or fail to take significant steps towards implementing the word and spirit of the UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1, including establishing a hybrid war crimes court with the participation of international judges and prosecutors.”

The group Monitoring and Accountability Panel (MAP), was established to monitor Sri Lanka’s compliance to the UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1, which Sri Lanka itself co-sponsored.

Based on the documented events of the last twelve months, the MAP has come to the following conclusions:

1) The Government of Sri Lanka is not acting in good faith with respect to its commitments under the UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1;

2) Human Rights violations and abuses amounting to crimes under international law continue to be committed in Sri Lanka with impunity;

3) Key reforms to the country’s justice and security sectors have failed to materialize; and

4) The initial reaction of the Government of Sri Lanka to the Final Report of the Consultation Task Force on Reconciliation (CTF) appointed by the Sri Lankan Government itself amounts to a cynical and reckless repudiation of the stated aspirations of Sri Lanka’s citizens.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, February 28, 2017 / — Ethiopian Airlines, the largest cargo operator in Africa, has been awarded the African Cargo Airline of the Year Award during the 2017 Air Cargo Africa Conference held in Johannesburg from 21st to 23rd February 2017.

LE&RN representatives to attend World Lymphedema Day event in Albany, NY, on March 2

I am advocating for the need to increase funding for research, tools that will increase education, access to affordable treatments and, eventually, a cure.”

— Nicole Faccio, LE&RN Member and Activist

NEW YORK, NY, USA, February 28, 2017 / — New York State has been a leader in the fight against lymphedema and lymphatic diseases, led by such champions in the New York State legislature as Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and Senator Martin J. Golden. In 2016, the State was the first legislative body in the nation and in the world to establish March 6 as World Lymphedema Day.

This year, New York State will pass a resolution recognizing March 6 as World Lymphedema Day, and will honor two New York State lymphatic disease advocates. Actor Steve Guttenberg, whose mother suffers from lymphedema, became a LE&RN Honorary Board member at the 2016 Brooklyn Walk. Nicole Faccio, a LE&RN member who recruited over 50 supporters for her 2016 New York Walk team at the Brooklyn Bridge last September, was born with primary LE (lymphedema) in both legs and in her left arm, which then resulted with the collapse of her lung due to fluid accumulation on the pleura.

“I am lucky in many ways,” Nicole said. “I was diagnosed early and received excellent care. As a result, lymphedema hasn’t stopped me from living to the fullest, including attending college to become an Engineer, traveling, living abroad, and having a career in NYC. Many people aren’t that fortunate, and lymphedema and lymphatic diseases are too often undiagnosed and untreated. I found out about the New York Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases just a week before the event. In Pizza We Crust (my fundraising team) raised over $4,000. That gave me the courage to tell my story.”

Nicole is honored to be recognized in Albany and will continue to share her experience to inspire others to do the same. She aims to increase awareness of lymphedema and lymphatic diseases, and hopes to serve as an example of the product of proper care.

“I ask our leaders to invest in quality of life for millions of citizens who deserve access to proper and affordable treatment,” Nicole said. “I am advocating for the need to increase funding for research, tools that will increase education, access to affordable treatments and, eventually, a cure.”

These resolutions will be read at the Statehouse in Albany on March 2. Representatives of LE&RN, including honoree Nicole Faccio, will be in attendance.

About LE&RN
Founded in 1998, the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (formerly LRF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for profit organization whose mission is to fight lymphatic disease and lymphedema through education, research and advocacy.

BergaMet NA Products Now Available on

BergaMet NA Products Now Available on

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2017 / — BergaMet NA Products Now Available on
Copmany’s metabolic syndrome products available on major online retailer

BOCA RATON, Fla.— BergaMet NA, a company that creates a line of products that improves the lives of people who suffer from metabolic syndrome, announced its products are now available for purchase on, the world’s largest online retailer.

BergaMet NA’s product line is large and varied, but all of its offerings are based on high-quality natural ingredients sourced from all over the world. The company’s premier product, BergaMet, has developed a reputation as the best citrus bergamot product currently available in its market. Now, this product has arrived on, which gives the company a larger audience than ever before.

“We are thrilled to announce that BergaMet is now available for purchase on,” said Logan Decker, Director of Operations for BergaMet NA. “These natural products are extremely useful for helping people find some much-needed relief from their metabolic syndrome symptoms. We are pleased to have the chance to reach out to more people than ever before to provide them with these benefits.”

BergaMet NA was established in early 2016 after its founders learned about the bergamot citrus grown in the Calabrian region of Italy. Researchers closely analyzed some of the clinical trials that had been performed on the fruit and found that it was a natural cardiovascular supplement thanks to its high levels of polyphenols. Bergamot can be grown in various places and climates around the world, but only those Italian fruits have this unique polyphenol composition.

Today, BergaMet offers several options for its supplements, each of which targets different health issues. BergaMet Mega+O, for example, is particularly useful for consumers who have high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol and high triglyceride levels. Another common choice among BergaMet customers is BergaMet Sport, which provides the same benefits as Mega+O but with an 18 percent stronger effect. Bergamet Sport also helps athletes improve energy levels, improve muscle recovery and athletic performance.

“We are eager to continue expanding our brand reach so we can help more people around the world achieve better metabolic and cardiovascular health,” said Decker.
