    Now the hospital can use that $2.2 million to hire his contracting company to build something.

    Just kidding, great gesture from a longtime Arlington family.

    Sounds like Yorktown should be interviewing candidates for defensive coordinator.

    Excellent season Yorktown! (Excellent coverage ACC Sports TV!)

      Great Season Yorktown. MJ and Arturo, keep your heads up. You both have very promising futures ahead of you and if I’m not mistaken, one more year at Yorktown. The 3rd times a charm.

    That bookstore is certainly a small business. Nice people working there though.

    That’s One *More* Page Books & it’s Arlington’s only indie bookstore – w/wine & chocolate, just in case you need to stock up for reading purposes ; )

      Actually, there’s that one used bookstore just off Wilson, in Ballston. It’s a converted house and you would never know it’s there unless you went looking. A tremendous collection of books although they are all rather old and tend towards very scholarly type editions. I forget the name off the top of my head and don’t feel like looking it up. Apparently it is closing in the next year or so.

    One More Page also hosts a terrific writers’ workshop on Thursday afternoons, led by Sally Lowenstein. Participants are students from elementary school to college. My daughter attends and it’s the high point of her week.
