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.

Marine Corps Marathon Goes Off Without a Hitch — With stepped-up security in place, some 30,000 runners safely participated in the 35th Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday. Air Force 2nd Lt. Jacob Bradosky won the 26.2 mile race, which winds through Rosslyn, Crystal City and the District, with a time of 2:23:30. Kenyan Janet Cherobon won the women’s field with a time of 2:42:38. 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.

    Frank O’Leary should worry more about the incompetent at best and fraudulent at worst activities of his property tax office and less about estimating election turn out. Did any one else pay their quoted car tax bill in full only to receive a statement later with penalties for not paying enough because they decided after the due date to charge you more than they requested? Time for an audit of that office!

    Walked by IOTA last night and the front renovation/open-air seating area is already completed – it’ll be great….in the summer.

    What’s up with all the bars creating outdoor space in the winter (WoW with the roof deck, IOTA with the open-air seating)?

      They are the new smoking lounges! Remember, you can’t smoke inside an establishment anymore. This is where is will take place – butts n all.

    Of course it did. Nothing but fear-mongering going on these days, whether from Republicans or Democrats.
