Santa Heim Merriland?

Savage is the featured community in the Where We Live section of The Washington Post today. In relating the storied past of the mill that is the centerpiece of the District 3 town, Laura Barnhradt Cech describes the period just after World War II when the mill was transformed into a Christmas village by Harry Heim. “He even went so far as to ask state legislators to change the name of Savage to Santa Heim, Merriland.”

It’s a good thing Shane Pendergrass wasn’t around then. Could you just imagine the desk slamming that would’ve gone on in the House of Delegates if that had come up under her watch?

Savage blogger Janis Markopoulus also got a nice little shout out.
