Candidates Make Final Pitches In Bethesda – Gubernatorial candidates Doug Gansler and Heather Mizeur both greeted potential voters Friday morning at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station. Mizeur was scheduled to greet voters at 9 a.m. at the Starbucks in the Wildwood Shopping Center. Anthony Brown and running mate Ken Ulman are scheduled to tour Bethesda Row at 1:30 p.m.

Storm Preparedness Tips – Two years ago, a powerful late-June derecho knocked out power to many in Montgomery County just as a heat wave started. While storms of that magnitude are rare, county officials do want residents to be prepared for the severe storms that do come each summer. [Montgomery County]

Village Survey For Bethesda Seniors – Bethesda Metro Area Village, a nonprofit being set up to help seniors aging in place, has put out a survey to figure out what services to provide. A Senior Village concept typically enlists volunteers to help older residents get to social and cultural programming and provide home maintenance. This Metro Area Village will encompass neighborhoods around Bradley Boulevard, Huntington Parkway, Hampden Lane, Old Georgetown Road, Woodmont Avenue and Arlington Road.
