Clarendon-Based Axios Being Acquired — “Axios has signed a deal to sell to its most recent lead investor, Cox Enterprises, the companies announced Monday. The cash deal values the company at $525 million, according to sources familiar with the deal.” [Axios, Washington Post]

Trash Burning Plant Now Cleaner — “Covanta, a leader in sustainable materials management and a premier provider of environmental solutions for businesses and communities, announced that the Covanta Alexandria Waste-to-Energy facility recently completed planned enhancements to its state-of-the-art pollution control technology. The goal is to further reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, thereby helping to protect the environment.” [Arlington County]

‘Lost Dog’ Welcomes Rescued Beagles — “Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation has welcomed 56 beagles to its Rescue Care Center in Falls Church, Va., from a mass-breeding facility riddled with animal welfare concerns. This effort is a result of the massive undertaking of the Humane Society of the United States to coordinate the removal of approximately 4,000 beagles housed at the Envigo RMS LLC facility in Cumberland, Va., which bred dogs to be sold to laboratories for animal experimentation.” [Press Release]

More Beagles in Arlington — From the Animal Welfare League of Arlington: “Our #EnvigoBeagles are heading to their foster homes today! This will be the first time these dogs have ever experienced living in a house, sleeping in a bed, or going outside. Please consider donating to our beagles’ fundraising page.” [Twitter]

Grant for Historical Society — “The Arlington Historical Society has received $5,000 for its ‘Memorializing the Enslaved in Arlington,’ the first phase of a longer-term effort to identify the men, women and children who were enslaved in Arlington County; to uncover what can be learned about their lives; and to memorialize their lives through markers installed in locations countywide.” [Sun Gazette]

Big Donation for Marymount — “Twenty years ago, John Shooshan’s life was saved by a doctor at Sibley Memorial Hospital. Now he’s giving back to the health care profession to help it address a chronic shortage of trained nurses. Shooshan, the chairman of Arlington real estate developer Shooshan Company, and his wife, Marcia, a retired teacher, are giving nearly $1.1 million to the Marymount University and Sibley Memorial Hospital to fund scholarships and internships for future nurses. Shooshan is a trustee at the small university in North Arlington.” [Washington Business Journal]
