ARLnow Weekend Discussion

The summer news doldrums are not here yet: this was a busy week with lots of news from the last round of County Board meetings of the summer and plenty of weather excitement.

There is already plenty on the agenda for next week, so we may have to wait until August for a breather.

In encouraging news, new COVID-19 cases in Arlington have continued to trend downward this week — expect an update on that either Monday or Tuesday. Will the trend last? Hard to tell, especially with cases in other parts of the region and the state on the rise.

Here are the most-read stories from the past week:

  1. Thousands Without Power in Arlington After Storm
  2. Four Arrested, Charged With Violent Car Thefts
  3. County Board Approves Outline of Future Shirlington Redevelopment
  4. Columbia Pike Starbucks Closed Due to COVID-19 Case
  5. New Coronavirus Cases Down, Hospitalizations Up in Arlington
  6. Longtime Lee Highway Shoe Repair Shop Closing Soon
  7. Favola Tries to Honor John Lewis, But Mistakenly Posts Photo of Elijah Cummings
  8. The Pinemoor Opens in Clarendon With a Nervous Eye Towards Future
  9. Man Accused of Biting Police Officer in Clarendon

Feel free to discuss those stories or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
