Friday News 'N Notes

- Despite the introduction of new yard signs by The Community, the County Council voted this week to approve the re-zoning of the former Chelsea School site, allowing EYA to proceed with the construction of their planned townhouse community. They also voted to disallow oral arguments from opponents, so that's the end of that... or is it?

- The 10th annual Silverdocs film festival starts tomorrow, and the Post has a long profile of the festival.

- Also tomorrow: the 4th annual Silver Spring Blues Festival, which kicks off at 10AM and runs to 11 that night. More details here.

-  Celebrating their grand opening this weekend is Gebeta Ethiopian Restaurant, which took over the space on Georgia avenue previously occupied by Taste of Jerusalem. I'll await the first round of reviews before I commit to dining there, but the food does look delicious.

- Run a prostitution ring out of a Silver Spring hotel and it's only a $500 fine? Seems like a pretty low-risk criminal enterprise to me.

- Silver Spring's North Hills is featured in this week's neighborhood profile in the Post.

- In one of the more bizarre stories of the year a 10-foot cigarette was stolen from a Silver Spring yard and then found cut into pieces and dumped behind Takoma Park Middle School. (Note the 100+ reader comments for the second story.)

- Finally, if you happen to see any "Chilean Sea Blobs" lying around town and wonder what the hell that's all about, it's this.

Thanks for the info about the Chilean Sea Blob! I saw the one outside Kao Thai the other day and wondered if it was some kind of protest against people eating Chilean sea bass.

Is there vegan option for the Chilean Sea Blobs?

You know someone is going to steal that sign this weekend.

Im up for stealing it and putting it in front of the Gabeta place which looks really unappealing.

I'm going to steal it and stick it on the green Filmore rooftop.

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections [url=http://www.sell-wow-gold.com]Sell WOW Gold[/url], do not pray for tasks equal to your powers.Pray for powers equal to your tasks.Then the doing of work shall be no miracle,but you shall be the miracle [url=http://www.sellwowmoney.com]Sell WOW Gold[/url] fear not that the life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning [url=http://www.mmoselling.com]Sell WOW Gold[/url].

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take Runescape Gold, but by the moments that take our breath away rs gold. I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty Runescape Gold.

I think it all started when they post the yard sign, if they did not do it then there will be no problem. Purchase Soundcloud Plays
