This week was slow at times, news-wise, but next week appears to be shaping up to be more active.

Stay tuned for reporting on a number of important local topics. Oh, and we’ll also have polls, to keep readers engaged through end-of-summer summer vacations and back-to-school preps.

In the meantime, below are the most-read stories of the past week — excluding Friday night’s Four Courts coverage.

  1. Quick-thinking customers and first responders helped to save lives
  2. It’s Advanced vs. Amazon after delivery van towed from Buckingham apartments
  3. Seven lesser-known features of this week’s Arlington County Fair
  4. New membership program launches at several Arlington bars, providing beers and pizza slices
  5. Still unclear what led to fiery crash, but Four Courts hopes to rebuild
  6. Morning Poll: How big of a problem is cut-through traffic in Arlington?
  7. The $38 million overhaul of the new Washington-Liberty annex is nearly complete
  8. A volunteer firefighter at a going-away party helped to save lives at Ireland’s Four Courts
  9. UPDATED: Search for man with weapon closes roads in Lyon Park
  10. Police investigating gunshots fired in Green Valley
  11. Noisy utility covers that have annoyed neighbors in Ballston for years could get finally fixed
  12. ACPD investigating pair of retail robberies and a car wash gun brandishing

Speaking of Four Courts, here’s some late-breaking news from the pub, which is hoping to reopen in a limited capacity, presumably utilizing the rear section of the business that was not damaged.

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