Silver Spring News 'N Notes

- Negril, the Jamaican eatery on Thayer Avenue is opening a "Negril Express" next door to its current location, presumably to better serve the lunchtime takeout crowd. This is a great, inexpensive place to grab lunch. If you are really hungry, I highly recommend the jerk chicken sandwich with a beef patty on the side. Try to ignore the fact that the beef patties are so greasy that they soak right through the brown paper bag…

- The Old Blair Auditorium Project has requested $500K from the Maryland Congress to repair the auditorium at Silver Spring International Middle School the old Blair High School.

- In other news, it's been a bad week to be a "Silver Spring Man":

"Silver Spring man sentenced on drug charge"

"Silver Spring man indicted on tax fraud charges"
