 APS Announces Make-up Day Plan — Arlington Public Schools has lost three days this school year due to inclement weather, including the day lost as a result of the controversial decision to close this past Monday for what turned out to be mostly drizzle. APS has announced its make-up plan, though most schools will not actually have to make up any days due to additional hours built into the school calendar this year. Those impacted by the make-up plan are elementary schools with early release and the Stratford Program, which will see three abbreviated days turned into full days as part of the make-up plan.

County to Explore More Options for Reeves Farmhouse — Arlington County is issuing a ‘request for information’ for the historic Reevesland farmhouse. The county is now seeking ideas from individuals and groups who want to use the farmhouse and its grounds but don’t have the nearly $1 million necessary for repairs to the property. That’s a win for one group of residents who have been pushing for the property to be used as a learning center. “We’re open to the idea of shared investment,” said County Manager Barbara Donnellan.

      But you never know exactly where.

      I am not so certain about that ……..

    This is really a tangent to the story about the judge. I assume there’s only one band called Rites of Ash in the DC area. Based on their website, it seems Kenneth Henenberg goes by “Lazzo.”

    Their bio makes me feel old. Most of the bands they list as influences are after my time.

    On Google, I can find a picture taken by a Karen Henenberg of a Falls Church golfer named Ben Lasso. This may be her son Benjamin referred to in the article. He wound up T41 in the last Q school pre-qualifier, so no PGA Tour card this year, but perhaps he’ll grind his way on in the coming years. Looks like he just turned pro last year. Good luck to him.
