Why hasn't LTM done a follow-up article on the rescheduling of the Kevin O'Conner child sexual abuse case? The Loudoun community should be aware of this update as a public safety service. I appreciate your coverage of Calvary Temple matters in the past, so I am curious as to why LTM is not covering this.

My name is Bill Incatasciato, and I am the admin for my page “Loudoun Christmas Lights.” Christmas is just over a week away and everyone is scrambling to buy presents, decorate, and make preparations for the big day. One way to relieve that stress is to go driving around looking at Christmas lights. My family and I love Christmas Lights and enjoy driving around the area to see the wonderful displays that other people set up. So we started a way help other people find local Christmas displays in Loudoun County and to provide a platform for those who do large and/or cool displays to show them off to others. This page is intended for people in Loudoun County (and maybe really close by) to post their home displays so that others may find them and appreciate the cheer they have created on their properties. I hope that this page continues to be a valuable resource for our community. I ask that you help in one or all of the following ways: • Like/follow and share my page with others. • Send me photos and locations of Christmas light displays so I can post onto the page. It doesn’t have to be just your house. I do believe we should share the joy that others create. • Visit the displays and enjoy the effort that was put into them. When posting a picture, please include an address, e-mail contact, hours, (if applicable), any restrictions/limitations (i.e. no head lights, don't block driveways, accepting donations, etc…,) and any other commentary. Please note, this a family friendly site, and I will review each submission prior to posting. Thanks for helping light up Loudoun County for the holidays! https://www.facebook.com/LoudounChristmasLights/

Ready, Set, WHOA...Friendship Trouble is the title of my next book. This one is a graphic novel. The following RallyUp campaign will help me make my dream of making a graphic novel by using the funds to hire a colorist and letter setter. In Ready, Set, WHOA...Friendship Trouble, Jeremiah develops a disability over the summer. With the first day of school ahead of him, Jeremiah is concerned his friends will treat him differently. Jar Lee, Jeremiah's brother, attempts to reassure him that if they are truly his friends they will not treat him any differently. However, once school begins, Tobias starts treating Jeremiah differently. Will Jeremiah and Tobias come to terms and save their friendship? Thank you for your consideration!
