Poolesville had been in the news a little bit lately.
Extreme Makeover Home Edition is in town for the week. They are filming the fall season premiere in town. The story behind it is actually pretty interesting. The Felicia Jackson who is having the home makeover has a family of 15 living under one roof. She has 4 kids of her own. She and her sister were placed in different foster care homes when they were young and finally reunited about 5 years ago. Her sister wound up getting cancer and passing away. Felicia adopted all of her sisters ten children and now has a household of 15.
A Sophmore from Poolesville high school qualifired for the olympic trials in swimming. She is part of the RMSC swim club which has about a dozen kids going to the Olympic trials. When I was at the Germantown Aquatic Center this morning the part of the team not at the trials was working out. Wow those kids are fast.
