Morning Notes

Looking out over Long Bridge Park (Staff Photo by Jay Westcott)

Georgetown Transit Study Released — “The study presents enhanced bus service and aerial gondola schemes narrowed down from forty initial ideas. Here’s a look at the alternatives… Aerial gondola between Rosslyn and Georgetown, Rosslyn terminus at N. Moore Street… Aerial gondola between Rosslyn and Georgetown, Rosslyn terminus at N. Lynn Street and Georgetown terminus at the former Exxon site.” [GGWash]

Home Prices Still High — “Another round of monthly data confirming signs of cooling but not catastrophe in the regional home-sales environment. ‘The Washington area is still a sellers’ market – however, buyers have more leverage on price with less competition in the market,’ notes Bright MLS, the region’s multiple-listing service.” [Sun Gazette]

Bayou Bakery Toasts Queen with Cocktail — “NOLA’ s favorite drink, Pimm’s Cup, Pops-Up at Bayou Bakery as ‘Your Majesty – Lilabet’ for a Ceremonial, Burial Toast to Queen Elizabeth II on Monday, September 19, 2022. $7 dollar Cocktail for Seven Reigning Decades” [Press Release]

APS Update on School Bus Service — “Just over 16,000 students are slated to be served by 158 school-bus routes for the new school year, Superintendent Francisco Durán reported to School Board members on Sept. 8. And while there were some driver vacancies and no substitutes to pick up the slack, the start-of-school performance seemed almost tranquil compared to several recent years, where chaos (controlled or uncontrolled) seemed to reign.” [Sun Gazette]

Online Tutoring for Students — “The start of a new school year has brought a new tool for Arlington secondary-school students in need of academic assistance. And they can receive it at any time of the day or night. The county school system has contracted with a firm called Paper to provide 24/7 online support, in English and Spanish, to students.” [Sun Gazette]

‘Statement Win’ for Yorktown — “Before their Friday night matchup with Virginia Class 6 state finalist Madison, the Yorktown seniors posed a challenge to one another: Try to have fun, regardless of the circumstances. Expectations were low outside of the Patriots’ locker room. They had fallen to the Warhawks, 41-0, last year, and the players had seen people trash-talking them online. But Yorktown put all that aside and earned a 14-11 win to improve to 2-1.” [Washington Post]

DCA Lost and Found — “Most people don’t know that @TSA has a Lost & Found Program. If you left your carry-on bag containing your coin collection (and there were some rocks in there as well) at a @Reagan_Airport security checkpoint, contact us.” [Twitter, TSA]

Nearby: Routes Renamed in Fairfax — “Fairfax County on Tuesday renamed two major highways honoring Confederate generals, ending a months-long process that was part of a larger reckoning over Virginia’s veneration of the Civil War. After a 9-1 vote by the county board, Lee Highway will be called by its federal highway number: Route 29. Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway will become Route 50.” [Washington Post]

It’s Wednesday — Clear throughout the day. High of 78 and low of 60. Sunrise at 6:51 am and sunset at 7:20 pm. [Weather.gov]
