As the four-day work week winds down for most, we’re going into the last weekend in February.

One of the top stories of the month is also hopping in this week’s most-read list for the second week in a row. The article on the bunny that infiltrated the Pentagon was the second most-read of February, only followed by the coverage of the lockdown at Yorktown High School.

The bunny news followed a rogue chicken scoping out the Pentagon entrance on the first day of February, another well-read story. We’ll have to see if March brings more animal news.

Now, here are the most-read Arlington articles of the past week.

  1. Don’t worry about that low-flying helicopter near the Alexandria border, Arlington County says
  2. NEW: Arlington’s summer camp registration system melts down again, despite changes
  3. A bunny has apparently infiltrated the Pentagon (published Feb. 14)
  4. Historical Society to homeowners: please don’t tear down your old house
  5. Busy Crystal City intersection closed after water main break, possible sinkholes
  6. Arlington implementing new program to divert youth from criminal justice system
  7. W-L students give away books they say could be ‘banned’ under new bill
  8. Apartments proposed for vacant Wendy’s lot near finish line
  9. EXCLUSIVE: Pike redevelopment project displaces tenants, sparking community outcry
  10. A Ballston Mediterranean cafe is broken into for the second time in a year

Feel free to discuss these stories or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a great weekend, Arlington!
