Encore To Perform at
Dance Gala
Variety of styles
presented at show.
van der Merwe says it should really grab
the audience’s attention. “The music builds
to a huge crescendo at the end,” she said.
“When the music reaches it, it makes you
hold your breath.”
The Encore dancers have been rehearsing for the gala since December; they’ve
performed “People Magazine” and “Rhythm
of Life” before, but van der Merwe choreographed “Too Darn Hot” specifically for this
event.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for dance
companies from this area to come together,
be supportive of this whole art form and
perform united on one stage,” she said. “We
all have the common goal of sharing the
arts and our love of dance.”

hen the Fairfax County
Dance Coalition (FCDC)
formed in 2008, it was
mainly to advise NOVA’s
Annandale campus on its stage renovations.
But it decided to take things a step further.
“We have a lot of excellent dancers trained
in Fairfax County, but they go elsewhere for
careers because there’s nothing here for
them,” said FCDC President Sherri Shortell.
“So we want to make this county a place
where they can work; we want Fairfax
County to become a center of dance excellence.”
Toward that end, the Coalition is holding
its hold its first annual gala, “A Celebration
of Dance,” Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m., and
Sunday, Jan. 30, at 2 p.m., in the theater of
NOVA’S Annandale Campus at at 8333 Little
River Turnpike.
“We’re trying to let the general public
know there are professional dancers and
dance companies right here,” said Shortell.
“So we thought the best way to do that was
to have a performance.”
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at
the door. To buy them, or for more information, visit www.dancefairfax-gala.org, or
contact any of the participating dance organizations.
Encore Theatrical Arts Project — comprised mainly of students attending schools
in Centreville and Chantilly — is one of nine
companies that will be performing. And director and choreographer Raynor van der
Merwe says her dancers can hardly wait.
“They’re excited to interact with other
performers that share a common love for
dance,” she said. “This builds a network —
not just for us directors and choreographers
to come together — but for the dancers, as
well.”
Fifteen Encore dancers total will perform
three routines in the show. “They’re all jazz
numbers, but each has a different feel,” said
van der Merwe.
Wearing black-and-red costumes, they’ll
dance to the song, “Too Darn Hot,” from
the Broadway musical, “Kiss me, Kate.” Said
van der Merwe: “It’s a bluesy, jazz number
that builds up to a really high energy at the
end.”
For an uptempo number called “People
Magazine” from the Broadway show, “The
Life,” the dancers will be adorned in red,
fur hats with red dresses and gloves.
Encore will also dance to “Rhythm of Life”
from the show, “Sweet Charity.” And for this
number, all the performers will wear different outfits and styles in various shades
of green and black.

Encore performers dance to the “Rhythm of Life” from the Broadway
show, “Sweet Charity.”
Van der Merwe said Encore’s rehearsals
for the show are “coming along really nicely.
There’s always an excitement when there’s
a performance around the corner. The girls
come to classes and rehearse all the time,
but there’s nothing quite like stepping on
that stage.”
The other companies participating this
weekend include: BalletNova, Classical Ballet Theatre, Dancin’ Unlimited Jazz Dance
Co., Dream in Color Foundation – Impact
Dance Co., Lasya Dance Co., The Ballet Arts
Ensemble of Fairfax, Center Stage Dance Co.
and the Virginia Ballet Co.
“We’re a very eclectic group, with dance
styles ranging from ballet to contemporary,
jazz, hip hop, Indian and tap,” said Shortell.
“It’s a great show – there’s definitely something for everybody. A lot of us haven’t seen
what the other groups are doing, yet, so it’ll
be exciting to discover what everyone else
is bringing to the table.”
EACH COMPANY has 10 minutes to perform. The dance companies are all
nonprofits, so the Coalition is currently trying to find affordable, local venues available for their performances. Said Shortell,
“We’d ultimately like to build a performingarts center somewhere in Fairfax County.”
Meanwhile, they’re looking forward to the
upcoming gala.
“All the directors have worked hard together to put this on – it’s been wonderful,” said Shortell. “Instead of being competitive, it’s really been inspirational and
a joy working with them. And this way, all
of us get to introduce our students to each
other’s styles; I’m so glad I’m involved. It’s
going to be an excellent show; I hope
people will come see what Fairfax County
has to offer.”

Opinion
House Bill Targets Traffic Congestion
By Jim LeMunyon
State Delegate (R-67)
he first full week of 2011 General
Assembly session is complete and
committee and subcommittees are
in full swing considering the 1,300
bills and resolutions introduced in the House
for this 46-day session. I introduced 16 bills
and resolutions on your behalf.
This week, the Virginia House of Delegates
considered four of my bills. I expect committee consideration of the remaining bills in the
next week or so.
My top priority is the issue that unites us all
in Northern Virginia — reductraffic congestion and imRichmond ing
proving our regional mobility.
Report
With this in mind, I introduced
House Bill 1998, requiring the
Virginia Department of Transportation to rate
planned transportation projects based on the
amount of congestion reduction achieved per
dollar spent on each project. In this way, the
highest priority projects can be determined
based on what will give us the biggest “bang
for the buck” or would improve regional mobility in the event of a homeland security emer-
T
gency in the Washington.
This bill was approved by
a transportation subcommittee yesterday and will
be considered by the full
committee next week. As a
companion to H.B. 1998, I
also introduced House Bill
1999, which would require
the Northern Virginia
Transportation Authority and the Commonwealth Transportation Board to fund the top
priority projects identified when H.B.1998 is
implemented. Our area is number one in the
nation for most time lost to gridlock – 70 hours
of delay on average each year. The best way to
address this problem is to fund the highest
priority projects first. This bill was also passed
out of subcommittee and will be considered
by the full committee next week.
H.J. 542 is a resolution I introduced which
proposes an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The resolution was passed by a House
committee this morning, and I expect the full
House will vote on the bill next week. H.J. 542
is commonly referred to as the Repeal Amendment and would permit two-thirds of the
states, when acting together, to repeal any fed-
eral law or regulation. This is necessary to
prune the significant over reach and
micromanagement exercised by the federal
government across a wide range of public
policy issues.
House Bill 2007, a bill that I introduced on
behalf of Governor McDonnell, removes the
requirement that Virginia participate as a member of the Council of State Governments, regionally and nationally. This bill will save the
Commonwealth of Virginia over $1.4 million
in membership fees alone over the next 10
years. I presented this bill on the House floor
today and expect it to be up for a vote on Monday. I invite you to read these bills and the others I introduced, which may be found by clicking here. As always, I am in Richmond to serve
you and your interests and want to hear from
you. If you have not done so already, please
take a moment to fill out my 2011 constituent
survey online.
Feel free to contact me about any matter of
concern to you, especially if it is related to a
bill now before the General Assembly. I may
be reached at by phone, 804-698-1067 or by
email, [email protected]
Thank you for the opportunity to represent
you in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Support New
License Plate
To the Editor:
We would like the community to
be aware of the “In Remembrance,
April 16, 2007” license plate that
we have requested the Virginia
General Assembly to approve. Designed by 2010 Virginia Tech
graduate, Zack Madrigal, the plate
is simple and elegant. Our intent
is to honor the 32 who died and
the many who survived that tragic
day.
Virginia residents can choose to
personalize their plates, transfer
their existing plate or receive a sixcharacter combination from the
Commonwealth.
Many non-profit organizations,
the military and colleges have specialized plates. For every license
plate that is sold or renewed after
the initial 1,000, organizations
receive $15. Such a program allows Virginia residents to not only
show their loyalty but to financially support their organization as
well.
VTV Family Outreach Foundation is composed of a majority of
the family members of the victims
and survivors of the April 16, 2007
tragedy at Virginia Tech. Our mission is to promote and advocate
for public safety and security of the
nation’s colleges and universities,
and to provide assistance and services to victims of campus crime
and their families.
State Sen. David Marsden of
Fairfax County and Del. Luke
Torian of Prince William County
have graciously offered to patron
our bills, SB 804 and HB 2245,
respectively.
In order to receive consideration
of our request, we must collect a
minimum of 350 pre-paid license
plate applications.

Ten Months Prison for Defrauding IRS
Tax-return preparer
filed false claims.
By Bonnie Hobbs
Centre View
ore than three years after he was
indicted by a federal grand jury,
a Chantilly resident and Fairfax
tax-return preparer has been sentenced to
prison for defrauding the IRS. He is Shree
Pazavelil and he must now serve 10 months
behind bars.
Following his indictment in November
2007, a warrant was issued for his arrest.
M
But Pazavelil was able to elude authorities
and wasn’t apprehended until August 2010.
He then pleaded guilty to Count 7 of a 34count indictment and was sentenced last
week in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.
At the time of the offense, Pazavelil
worked for MAS Tax Inc. in Fairfax. Among
other tax forms that he prepared for his clients were U.S. Individual Income Tax Returns (Form 1040), plus supporting schedules and forms. These included “Schedule
A, Itemized Deductions,” upon which were
listed certain itemized deductions — including charitable gifts and un-reimbursed employee expenses.
In income-tax calculations, such deductions may be subtracted from a taxpayer’s
income to decrease the amount of taxable
income. Doing so results in less tax to be
paid to the government and, in some instances, a larger refund for the taxpayer.
But Pazavelil was convicted of claiming such
deductions for his clients illegally — and
thereby aiding in the preparation of false
tax returns.
According to Count 7 of the indictment,
on March 29, 2004, he filed a tax return
for the 2003 tax year for a female client. In
that return, he stated that that person had
incurred $21,402 in un-reimbursed expenses and had made $4,671 in charitable
contributions. But both of these statements
were false. Last Friday morning, Jan. 21,
Pazavelil appeared before U.S. District
Court Judge Claude M. Hilton. Under federal sentencing guidelines, the Chantilly
man could have received as much as 16
months in prison, but Hilton believed that
a sentence at the low end of the guidelines,
10 months, would serve the purposes of
punishment and deterrence.
Hilton also placed Pazavelil on one year’s
supervised release, following the completion of his prison term, and ordered him to
pay a $100 special assessment, as well as
$29,015 restitution to the IRS. Pazavelil is
to begin paying monthly installments of
$200 within 60 days of his release from federal custody. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jasmine Yoon and Jack Hanly prosecuted this
case.
Two Greenbriar Men Charged in Motel Robbery
By Bonnie Hobbs
Centre View
ity of Fairfax police have charged
three people with a total of 20 of
fenses in connection with a Nov.
27, 2010 robbery at the Breezeway Motel
at 10829 Fairfax Blvd. Shortly after 8:30
p.m., the victims – two 21-year-old men and
a 27-year-old woman – reported that they’d
C
been robbed by three men, one of whom
had previously met one of the victims.
According to police, after that suspect was
admitted to the room, the other two forced
their way in. All three men then allegedly
produced handguns and robbed the two
male victims, assaulting one of them, police say. They also say the suspects reportedly attempted to rob the woman and then
took her purse from her vehicle as they were
leaving. The assault victim declined medical treatment.
Following an investigation by the Criminal Investigations Division, the suspects
were identified and warrants were obtained. On Dec. 1, Ross Reynolds, 21, of the
12500 block of Philmont Drive in Herndon,
was arrested at a motel in Leesburg with
help from Leesburg police.
He was charged with two counts of rob-
bery, three counts of use of a firearm in the
commission of a felony and one count of
abduction. He was then held without bond
in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
With the cooperation of Fairfax County
police, the other two suspects were arrested
at their homes, the morning of Dec. 21.

Grand Jury Indicts Three
Fairfax County grand jury last Tuesday, Jan. 18, indicted three people
for crimes committed in the local
area. They are Tony Tong, Joshua Gessler
and Jennah Billeter.
TONY TONG
Tony Tong, 43, of Chantilly Green Estates,
is accused of the Oct. 22, 2010 murder of
his wife, Kathleen Tran, 44. According to
police, he allegedly confessed to shooting
her inside their home with a .45-caliber,
semiautomatic handgun. Police say his ap-
A
parent motive for the crime is that he
thought his wife was having an affair.
Following a Jan. 13 preliminary hearing
in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court,
Tong’s case was certified to the grand jury,
which has now indicted him. He’s scheduled for a March 15 jury trial in Circuit
Court.
JOSHUA GESSLER
On Aug. 9, 2010, Fairfax County police
arrested Joshua Gessler, 41, of 1310 Nina
Court in McLean, in connection with al-
leged, sexual offenses against a 15-year-old
Centreville girl. Detectives charged him
with five counts of possession of child pornography and one count of production of
child pornography.
After further investigation by detectives
with the Child Exploitation Unit, on Sept.
16, police levied 10 additional counts of
possession of child pornography against
Gessler. Following his indictment last week
on all 16 charges, he’s slated for a March
28 jury trial in Circuit Court.
JENNAH BILLETER
Jennah Billeter, 33, a former special-education teacher at Deer Park Elementary, is
charged with one count of misdemeanor
simple assault and two counts of felony cruelty to children.
Police and Child Protective Services believe that, between May and July 2010,
Billeter, of Federalist Way in Fair Oaks, reportedly physically assaulted and mistreated two boys, ages 4 and 5, assigned to
her class. They were attending Deer Park’s
summer program for autistic children.
Billeter worked as a special-ed teacher at
Clifton Elementary in 2003 and Bull Run
Elementary in 2004, before coming to Deer
Park in 2007. Following her arrest, the
school system placed her on unpaid leave.
She’s scheduled for a Feb. 16 jury trial in
Circuit Court.

‘Evening of One-Acts’ at WHS
his Friday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m.,
Westfield High’s Theatre III and IV
classes present “An Evening of OneActs” at the school. Tickets are $8 and seating is general admission. This show is a
fund-raiser for the Westfield Theatre thespians and all proceeds will be used to fund
the students’ trip to New York City in April.
Both one-act plays are student-directed.
❖ “Twelve Angry Jurors” (also known as
“Twelve Angry Men”), by Reginald Rose, is
directed by Trevor Knickerbocker and Max
Ehrlich. A jury must decide whether or not
to reach a guilty verdict and sentence a man
to death. At the beginning of the play, 11
jurors vote “guilty.”
Only one juror, Juror number 8, believes
the young man might be innocent. He must
convince the others that “reasonable doubt”
exists. One by one, the jury is persuaded to
agree with Juror number 8. This is based
T
on the teleplay, “Twelve Angry Men,” and
is Westfield’s entry into the VHSL One-Act
competition, Jan. 31 at Herndon High.
❖ “Goldilocks on Trial” written by
Chantilly High’s theater director, Ed Monk,
and directed by Westfield student Elisabeth
Bloxam. Goldilocks is on trial for breaking
and entering.
Will she be found guilty and sent to
prison, or will the truth come out? It’s up
to Judge Wallabee and some very silly jurors to decide, after hearing testimony from
Goldee, the bickering Three Bears, and surprise witness Merwin the Big Bad Wolf,
among others.
Following the show, the audience is welcome to join the actors in the black box theater for some funny improvisations. For
more information, contact Susie Pike at
[email protected] or producers Andy
Roca, Joey Biagini or Ariauna Heck.

Free Carseat Inspections
Certified technicians from the Sully District Police Station will perform free, child safety
carseat inspections Thursday, Jan. 27, from 5-8:30 p.m., at the station, 4900 Stonecroft
Blvd. in Chantilly. No appointment is necessary. But residents should install the child
safety seats themselves so technicians may properly inspect and adjust them, as needed.
However, because of time constraints, only the first 35 vehicles arriving on each date
will be inspected. That way, inspectors may have enough time to properly instruct the
caregiver on the proper use of the child seat. Call 703-814-7000, ext. 5140, to confirm
dates and times.

Not Just
Any Friday...
By KENNETH B. LOURIE
But Friday, Jan. 7, 2011, the date of my
most recent post-scan appointment with my
oncologist. The date when the results of those
previous week’s scans will be shared with Dina
and me. The appointment when we will learn
if my stage IV lung cancer has progressed – or
not. And what we learned is, news we can live
with: “No change.” The tumors have not
grown or moved. The status is quo. I am doing
“Amazing,” according to my oncologist. Two
years into my treatment, and it’s not, to invoke
a Boston expression, “Katie bar the door;”
which means trouble, sort of, figuratively
speaking.
So what’s next? No one knows for sure and
that’s the problem. Although not nearly the
problem the original pain in my ribcage has
turned out to be. But still a problem. A problem of the unknown. What to do, how to treat,
a patient who has now outlived his prognosis
and who has been on a chemotherapy drug –
Avastin, longer than any other patient his
oncologist has previously treated, and a patient
who is as symptomatic and progressing as well
as I am? “Uncharted territory” is how my
oncology nurse has described my future.
But it’s a future. A future that two years ago
was not exactly promised to me. Not that
promises are likely ever made to cancer
patients during chemotherapy, but you get the
idea I’m sure. And not that I ever took the
characterizations personally but, after all the
testing is completed to determine “the underlying problem” (as I call my lung cancer/ diagnosis), you become a statistic, a compilation of
data – which, according to medical science/history indicates/corresponds to a certain
time line (I hesitate to use the term “deadline”
anymore). And neither is that time line promised, but presumably, there is some methodology to their madness and statistical presumptions, so it’s a bit hard to ignore. Although,
you try.
Nevertheless, it’s a weight – and a wait, too.
It’s all about what happens next: results from
lab work, X-Rays, CT scans, MRIs, physical
examinations, etc., to determine your fate.
Some of it is in your control, most of it is not.
And upon reflection, you may recall what your
oncologist said to you back in February 2009:
there are exceptions to every rule – and he
hopes that you are one of them. However, he
was not the least bit encouraging. Presumably
he is duty-bound and medically and ethically
motivated as well, not to provide too much
false hope. In my case, he didn’t. Moreover, he
suggested that perhaps I take that vacation I
always wanted to. WHAT!?
But here I am, two years post diagnosis; an
exception to the rule. You can now officially
throw the statistics out the window. And
though I am thrilled to be here (Duh!), here is
where few of us have ever been before, unfortunately. As a result, there are no real treatment
protocols to follow and so my oncologist has
much less medical data on which to rely and
more anecdotal-type feelings from me, the
patient, to consider as he/we decide how best
to proceed/how to treat. Not that the diagnosis-/treatment-to-date hasn’t been collaborative, it has; it’s more that, treatment going forward, there’s less conventional wisdom on
which to rely and more dependence on
unconventional wisdom – mine, to decide
dosages, frequency of chemotherapy and
scans, etc.
This new decision-making, combined with
where I am relative to my original prognosis/time line scares the living daylights out of
me – if you want to know the truth. If you
don’t want to know the truth, welcome to the
other half of my brain. Can you say dichotomy?
(I can’t, anymore than I can say “deadline”.)

Chantilly Enjoying Historical Wrestling Season
Chantilly has
surpassed program
record for wins.
By Rich Sanders
Centre View
his has been a remarkable season for the Chantilly High wrestling squad, which entered this
final week of the regular season
with an impressive 21-8-4 dual team record.
“We’re having the best season in Chantilly
history,” said Chargers’ head coach Phil
Cronin, of the program.
The winter season started in strong fashion with Chantilly winning its first five dual
meets of December before finishing sixth
place out of 32 teams at the annual NOVA
Classic, the official kickoff event of the
Northern Region wrestling season, held at
Fairfax High School on Dec. 10.
As the season moved on, Chantilly would
enjoy more highlight moments — a second
place finish at the eight-team Jacket Invitational, held at Osbourn Park High School
in Manassas on Dec. 18; a third place showing at the Virginia Duals event held Jan. 78 in Hampton; and a strong showing at their
own Chantilly Duals on Jan. 15.
At the Virginia Duals showcase in Hampton, Chantilly competed in the 16-team
Black and Blue Division. The Chargers defeated Gloucester High in their opening dual
meet there, but then fell into the loser’s
bracket with a loss to perennial state power
Great Bridge (Chesapeake). But Chantilly,
T
having fallen into the loser’s bracket, then
won its final four dual team matches — victories over Lakeland (Suffolk), 66-9;
Riverbend (Fredericksburg), 42-21; Northern Region rival Langley, 34-24; and
Phoebus (Hampton), 41-24.
The four consecutive wins following the
quarterfinals round loss to Great Bridge
gave the Chargers an outstanding third
place overall finish at the renowned tournament.
At the 10-team Charger Duals, which
Chantilly hosted, the Chargers went 3-2
overall with the wins coming over Hermitage (Richmond), 48-27; Smithburg High
(Maryland), 53-18; and region opponent
South Lakes, 55-18. The losses came to
Osbourn Park, 45-24, and Cosby High
(Midlothian), 52-15.
CHANTILLY HAS ALREADY surpassed a
team record for most wins in a season (21
thus far). Its previous best season for wins
came in 2003, in coach Cronin’s second season at Chantilly, when the Chargers went
18-3 overall.
Cronin said this year’s team has good experience, with numerous seasoned, talented
juniors and seniors in the starting line-up.
“Our seniors and juniors have been in the
line-up since their freshmen years,” said
Cronin. “They got pounded as freshmen and
sophomores. Now, they’re coming into their
own.”
In late December, Chantilly participated
at a holiday invitational in Redding, Pa.,
where the Chargers went up against some
enormously talented teams from Pennsylvania — a state known for its outstanding
high school wrestling. Chantilly, the lone,
non-Pennsylvania school at the tournament, Chantilly Youth Association’s head wrestling
finished 12th overall among 16 teams. Par- commissioner.

Sports Notes
Several Fairfax County organizations have
formed a public-private partnership to expand the
area’s lineup of sports competitions and related
initiatives. The new Fairfax County Sports
Committee is led by Eric Kulczycky of Visit
Fairfax, the county’s tourism bureau. Originally
convened by the Fairfax County Office of Public
Private Partnerships, the group’s other members
include the county’s Park Authority, public schools,
high school athletic boosters, the Athletic Council,
Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, as well as the Northern Virginia Regional
Park Authority, George Mason University, Northern Virginia Community College, Hoop Magic
Sports Academy, SkateQuest, Dulles Expo Center,
and Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, a firm
specializing in sports and entertainment event
management and public relations.
The Fairfax County Sports Committee will collaborate with local groups to develop and promote
a variety of events, from the Virginia High School
League Jubilee that attracts student-athletes from
all areas of the state, to the Washington Area Girls
Soccer League’s annual tournament that draws
more than 15,000 players and family members
from 17 states and Canada.
In addition to youth sports, attracting adult competitions will also benefit the county. In 2009,
Fairfax won its bid to host the 2015 World Police
and Fire Games, which is expected to bring in more
than 10,000 active and retired public safety officers from 65 countries and generate an estimated
$40 million in economic impact for the region.
Tournament organizers, private facility managers, and potential sponsors are encouraged to
contact Eric Kulczycky at 703-752-9510 or
[email protected] for more information.
