Glebe Road Sewer Project Keeping Residents Up At Night — The county has started a new sewer project on South Glebe Road between 5th Street and 1st Road. The project will increase the capacity and reliability of the sewer system in the area. But the work of tearing up the road is being done at night, which has some residents complaining about the noise. More from the Washington Post.

IOTA Club Expands Beer List, Plans Renovations — Clarendon’s IOTA Club has expanded its draft beer list to 12 beers. The music venue’s current selection includes craft beers like Moonglow Weizenbock, Bear Republic Racer 5, Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere. The decision to upgrade the beer taps “is part of a larger improvement project at IOTA which includes an interior renovation/reconfiguration, a new outdoor front seating area, a new menu, coffee service, and many other things.” More from DC Beer.

Voter Turnout Could be Record — According to a projection by county treasurer Frank O’Leary, this year could be a record in turns of the number of voters voting in an off-year when the House of Representatives race is the marque race. But the percentage of active voter turnout will not be a record, O’Leary predicts. The dry weather predicted for tomorrow should help turnout. More from the Sun Gazette.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
