Week in Review: Oct. 3 - Oct. 9
A wrap-up of the news week in Bethesda.
So far, nearly 250 readers have taken our poll – 56 percent report they’re not a fan of the new fountain, 23 percent are enthusiastic about the new water feature, and 20 percent of poll takers are undecided.
We also posted an update this week from Bethesda Row management company Federal Realty explaining the intention behind the fountain – it’s an artistic interpretation of the hydrologic cycle. The misting feature that’s had some of our commenters peeved is intended to represent clouds.
In state and county news, we reported that a new poll indicates Marylanders are divided on the same-sex marriage and DREAM act initiatives. We also reported on efforts at the Montgomery County Council to cut capital spending.
With the news of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ passing, a memorial sprouted up in front of the Bethesda Row Apple Store. Officials are looking into stencil advertisements on Bethesda’s sidewalks, and we reported on a night celebrating local green champions at Round House theatre Wednesday.
In crime news, an Alexandria man was arrested after allegedly exposing himself to a female jogger in Glen Echo.
The week ended in tragedy as police reported late Saturday night they are investigating an apparent murder-suicide on Westbard Avenue in Bethesda. Stay tuned to Patch for details in that developing story.
Enjoy the rest of thie beautiful Sunday and we’ll see you next week with more news.
