County Offices Open — “Arlington County Government offices and facilities are closed on all federal holidays except Columbus Day.” [Arlington County]

Metro Service Plan Today — “In observance of Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Monday, Oct. 10, Metrorail will operate normal weekday service and Metrobus will operate on a Saturday supplemental schedule. MetroAccess customers may make reservations to travel on the holiday; however, subscription trips will be canceled.” [WMATA]

WHS Counselor Controversy — A conservative news site says a Wakefield High School counselor is “part of [a] group offering to resettle gay kids with new parents,” while a liberal news site says the report constitutes “a massive right-wing freakout” about what is actually an as-yet unused offer of “emergency housing.” [Daily Wire, Salon, Fairfax Times]

Local Author’s New Book — “My Gap Year — Reinterpreted is an experimental rewrite of a diary that journalist-author Charlie Clark produced at age 18 during a nine-month hitchhiking tour of nine countries of Europe and North Africa. More than a travelogue, the essay is personal and reflective, taking advantage of a 68-year-old’s wisdom (ha!) and insight into his younger self during a time of change.” [Politics and Prose]

Fairfax Chafes at Dillon Rule — “Fairfax County deserves more local authority, Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeff McKay says, calling Virginia’s Dillon Rule “increasingly more intrusive” in day-to-day operations. The Dillon Rule dictates that localities only have the authority to create laws, set guidelines, and wield power if the state expressly grants it to them.” [FFXnow]

It’s Monday — Clear throughout the day. High of 66 and low of 44. Sunrise at 7:14 am and sunset at 6:39 pm. []
