Morning Notes

Arlington Lawyer’s Jeopardy! Run Ends — “Both Luigi and Emmett got Final Jeopardy! correct, but for the second time this week, the leader going into Final didn’t win, as Luigi’s gambit hoping that Emmett wouldn’t get Final correct didn’t work out–Emmett bet $10,000 and is the Jeopardy! champion going into the weekend! He’ll be back on Monday to defend!” [The Jeopardy! Fan]

ANC Confederate Statue Removal? — “An independent commission is recommending that the Confederate Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery be dismantled and taken down, as part of its final report to Congress on the renaming of military bases and assets that commemorate the Confederacy… Some of the figures also on the statue include a slave woman depicted as ‘Mammy’ holding what is said to be the child of a white officer.” [NBC 4]

Michael Wardian Profile — “Scabby and blistered and peeling like a sunburn, the arch of his size-11 foot looks as if it’s been gnawed on by a small critter, like corn on the cob. I feel as though this wounded appendage ought to be swaddled in gauze, but it’s bare inside his shoe, and Wardian’s walk seems unaffected. He started the morning at 5:30 playing pickleball for hours and would end the day driving to a Dead & Company concert at Jiffy Lube Live.” [Washingtonian]

Chamber Prez Celebrates Fifteenth Year — “This month, Arlington Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Kate Bates celebrates 15 years of service with the organization. Kate Bates joined the Chamber in 2007 as Member Services Manager… before being named President and CEO in 2014 after the organization held a national search to find a replacement for Rich Doud when he announced his retirement after 23 years. Only 29 at the time, Kate was the youngest Chief Executive Officer, and the first female to lead the Chamber.” [Press Release]

Local National Merit Semifinalists — “Seniors from Washington-Liberty High School, Wakefield High School, Yorktown High School, H.B. Woodlawn and Bishop O’Connell High School will be eligible for National Merit Scholarships in 2023 after being named semifinalists. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation named over 16,000 semifinalists Wednesday for its competitive scholarship program in 2023.” [Patch]

Per Square Foot Rate Falling — “Another sign of the slowing local real-estate market: Sellers are getting less, on a per-square-foot basis, than they had earlier in the year… Arlington led suburban jurisdictions, with an August 2022 rate of $451 per square foot, down from $454 a year before (the lone year-over-year decliner) and off from a year-to-date average of $484.” [Sun Gazette]

It’s Monday — Partly cloudy throughout the day. High of 83 and low of 66. Sunrise at 6:55 am and sunset at 7:12 pm. [Weather.gov]
