Toasting Kingle Road's Demise

Updated: 5:01 p.m.
Environmentalists really know how to rub it in. They plan to take a hike June 1 in Klingle Valley and then drink champagne to celebrate the D.C. Council's decision to nix funding that could have reopened the controversial Klingle Road. Instead, the city will fund a hiker/biker trail.

The invitation, in circulation now, lists the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth as party hosts. A $10 donation is expected. But a "light dinner" and "brief remarks by Council members, campaign leaders" are included.

Hmmm. D.C. Wire is wondering if one of those Council members will be Mary Cheh, the person who has led the environmentalist charge on the Council, and threw her body in front of Klingle Road's reopening.

Jim Dougherty of the Sierra Club said it is a "private party" and supporters will be guests.

How do you hold a "private party" in a public park/street?

The party is at someone's private residence. Guests are invited to join a walk in Klingle Valley and return to the house.
