...the transformation of Silver Spring continues. Five years ago, Silver Spring had the highest vacancy rate in the county. Today, it has the lowest vacancy rate, about 4 percent- Silver Spring native and (former) NBA player Lonny Baxter was arrested last night after allegedly firing a pistol out the window of his SUV near the White House. Real bright.
In other bad news for Silver Spring athletes, the Redskins' Shawn "Silver" Springs will miss 3-6 weeks after surgery.
