Volunteers Needed to Lead Free Bone Builders Classes Throughout Montgomery County

 

Free Bone Builders classes to prevent and slow development of osteoporosis are offered at nine Montgomery County sites.  Osteoporosis causes bones to become thin and easily broken. Although osteoporosis can strike at any age, it affects one in three women and one in eight men over the age of 60. One out of every two women and one in four men over 50 will have an osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime. The daytime Bone Builders classes help regular participants increase bone density naturally.

Time Ticking On Traffic Near Bethesda Military Hospital

BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA) -- All those new folks moving to what will be the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda this fall have a lot of neighbors -- and workers -- freaked out about traffic.

The Rockville Pike, Old Georgetown, Connecticut Avenue, Cedar Lane -- they're already jammed at rush hour. 

The question really is whether they've improved the roads and signals around here enough to prevent total gridlock.

Right now, there is plenty of fear... but very little reality. Summer vacations and the slow relocation of staffers from Walter Reed in Northwest DC mean the traffic has yet to really hit.

Another 25-hundred workers and about a half million new visitors a year will have to roll through the newly widened security gates on to the new medical campus in the midst of suburban highways already among the most jammed in the region.

Van Hollen Named To Deficit Reduction Panel

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen has been named to Congress' new debt-reduction supercommittee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appointed three Democrats to the panel on Thursday.

Van Hollen is the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee.
The panel has until Thanksgiving to propose $1.5 trillion in budget savings over 10 years. If the panel does not make a proposal or if Congress does not approve it, there will be $1.2 trillion in automatic budget cuts triggered.

In a statement, Van Hollen says the plan should put jobs first and require shared responsibility from those who have done so well even during tough economic times.
