The ascension of Ron Klain 

Ron Klain of Chevy Chase, who was the chief of staff for Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, is viewed in and out of the West Wing as the essential conductor of administration business, a surrogate for the president and — in the mischievous portrayal of opponents — an all-powerful, unelected orchestrator of an ultraliberal agenda.

Homelessness decreases in county during pandemic

During the pandemic, homelessness decreased in the county, according to John Mendez, executive director of Bethesda Cares, a nonprofit organization that works to end homelessness in Montgomery County. 

He attributed the efforts of the county and those who work with the homeless to gaining the trust and convincing those living on the street to self-isolate. [Montgomery Community Media]
