Arlington seems stuck in a relatively slow news cycle, with few significant breaking stories to speak of over the past few weeks, but that may change next week.
First, we have a County Board meeting next weekend that should keep us busy with coverage. Second, these slow cycles never last for long and we’re due for a big story or two. Third, you’ll be seeing a new byline here over the next couple of weeks, and more staffing allows us to cover more local stories.
Despite being a bit slow, there were still plenty of interesting local stories this week. Below are the most-read articles of the week.
- Police Investigating Bomb Threat in Crystal City
