Local Lawyer on Five-Day Jeopardy! Streak — Arlington attorney Luigi de Guzman is now on a five-day winning streak on Jeopardy! and will likely be included in future Tournament of Champions. De Guzman has won $140,700 so far and will next face a homemaker from Arkansas and a freelance writer from Baltimore. [The Jeopardy! Fan]

Local Coworking Space is Bankrupt — “Coworking firm and government contracting accelerator Eastern Foundry has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and appears to have shuttered all operations, according to court records and interviews. The company — which at one point maintained three locations, in Crystal City, Rosslyn and Fayetteville, North Carolina — closed a checking account that contained $0 on Oct. 1, 2021… In 2016, it leased 19,000 square feet at 1100 Wilson Blvd. in Rosslyn that Arlington County heavily subsidized.” [Washington Business Journal]

State Tax Rebate Coming — “This fall, approximately 3.2 million eligible taxpayers will receive one-time tax rebates of up to $250 if they filed individually, and up to $500 if they filed jointly. To be eligible, taxpayers must file by November 1, 2022 and have had a 2021 tax liability.” [Press Release]

More on Custis Trail Stabbing — “A teenager named Max, who considers himself fortunate to be alive, wants to help police find the man who stabbed him last month in an unprovoked attack as he was jogging in Arlington, Va. He said he’s worried that the assailant, if not caught, will eventually plunge a knife into another innocent victim and that person’s story will have a sadder ending than his own.” [Washington Post]

Store Employee Robbed in Pentagon City — “two suspects allegedly entered the business and began to conceal merchandise when they were confronted by an employee. The suspects left the business without the merchandise and a short time later, returned and became involved in a verbal dispute with the employee. The suspects then threatened the employee, implying they had a firearm and physically assaulted him before stealing his cellphone and fleeing the scene on foot.” [ACPD]

Arlington Lags in Apartment Construction — “Alexandria is one of the cities with significant increases in new apartment construction in 2022, according to a new study from RentCafe… The largest share of the region’s projected units would come from Washington, DC — 4,572. Alexandria is second in the region with 1,730 projected units, followed by Arlington with 1,635 projected units, Ashburn with 762, Gaithersburg with 630 and Reston with 546.” [Patch]

Mormons Give Tons of Food to AFAC — “The Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) recently received 39,000 pounds of food through a partnership with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The donation made its way to Arlington from Utah, where the church provides groceries to members in need. AFAC and other organizations around the country receive surplus food.” [Sun Gazette]

APS Enrollment Up vs. Last Year — “Arlington’s first-day-of-school count, while up from a year ago, remains below the pre-pandemic high of 2019, suggesting some students whose families pulled them out of the public-school system will not be coming back. Superintendent Francisco Durán on Sept. 8 reported a first-day-of-class enrollment of 27,524, up 613 students from last year’s official count of 26,911.” [Sun Gazette]

It’s Friday — Yet another gorgeous early fall day. Clear throughout the day. High of 80 and low of 59. Sunrise at 6:52 am and sunset at 7:17 pm. []
