It was a busy week here at ARLnow as we finally unveiled the ARLnow Press Club.
Thank you to all who have signed up already, most of whom appear to be choosing the yearly option rather than the monthly. We greatly appreciate your support and trust in us.
It’s a major undertaking for our staff, which grew by one journalist in order to be able to launch the service. For those who have joined or will be joining, we look finding more ways to save you time, provide useful information, and generally make local living better.
Beyond the members-only newsletters, podcast and happy hour guide, the Press Club will allow us to expand our local news coverage on the website, which remains — and will forever remain — open to all.
Speaking of coverage, the top dozen most-read articles on the site this week are listed below.
- Arlington Woman Killed in Route 50 Crash

Donate between 9/27 (Wed) and 9/30 (Sat) to Double Your Contribution to Nathan’s Cancer Slayers 2023, on behalf of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Nathan’s team works in memory of Nathan Fleming, who graduated from Washington-Liberty in 2019 while undergoing chemo and radiation.
Nathan was one of a kind, a great soul, and wise beyond his years. Loving and kind, funny, smart, interesting, easy-going, a little bit goofy and always positive.
Since May 2020, Nathan’s team has raised more than $425,000 to advance innovative childhood cancer research. This year, all the funds we raise will support sarcoma research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Every dollar makes a big difference. Research to discover new drug treatments would NOT be possible without philanthropic funding. Unbelievably, childhood cancer research receives just 4% of the annual budget from the National Cancer Institute, underscoring the importance of charitable giving.
Whether you’re expecting your first baby or you just had your first baby, we want to meet YOU! All those feelings you’re having are NORMAL and it’s not just you. Please don’t isolate yourself – that’s quicksand.
