We hope you had a great April and have some plans to ring in a new month this weekend.
There was plenty to talk about over the last 30 days.
This week’s number one story, about an FBI operation, was also the top story for the whole month of April. Coming in second, we wrote a story about a woman who pepper sprayed a man for taking photos of children — he turned out to be their dad. The third story you guys were most interested in this month was on SOJA, a band that formed in Arlington, winning a Grammy award.
Now, here are the most-read Arlington articles of the past week.
