Another Gun Caught at DCA — “Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) prevented a Prince George’s County, Md., man from carrying his loaded handgun onto a flight this morning, Wednesday, Sept. 21. It was the 20th gun detected by TSA officers at the airport so far this year. The 9mm gun was loaded with seven bullets, including one in the chamber.” [Press Release]

New Retail and Restaurant at Airport — “Local burger joint Lucky Buns and Black-owned bookstore MahoganyBooks are among the businesses that will open new locations at National Airport, according to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Lucky Buns, which is from Chef Alex McCoy and known for its burgers and chicken sandwiches influenced by British and Southeast Asian cuisine, will be located by the B gates.” [DCist]

Ukrainian Kids Visit USS Arlington — “Twenty-seven children of Ukrainian soldiers visited the U.S. Navy San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington (LPD 24) during a port of call to Riga, Latvia, in late August. The National Defense Patriotic Foundation (NAMEJS), a charitable organization run by retired Latvian Army Lt. Gen. Raimonds Graube, hosted the Ukrainian children for a week-long summer camp at the time of USS Arlington’s arrival.” [Sun Gazette]

N. Va. Job Growth Trails Rest of State — “Northern Virginia accounts for nearly 38 percent of the jobs in the commonwealth but only was responsible for 30 percent of the statewide rebound in employment over the past year, according to new data. From August 2021 to August 2022, the local region picked up a net 35,700 new jobs to stand at 1,533,700, according to figures reported Sept. 16 by the Virginia Employment Commission.” [Sun Gazette]

Metro Track Issues Revealed — “Wheel problems similar to those that sidelined about half of Metro’s rail car fleet also occurred years earlier on older cars, partly stemming from a track issue Metro never addressed, the transit system’s regulatory agency said Tuesday while citing a years-old report that recently came to light.” [Washington Post]

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
