Scare After DJO Game — “Officers with the Arlington County Police Department were sent to a local high school Saturday afternoon after several teens alerted police to seeing a man with a gun on the football field… Police say this incident occurred after a varsity football game at the school had ended and most of the people at the game had left.  No contact was made between the witnesses and the man allegedly with a gun.” [WUSA 9]

Beavers Stripped from Park Name — “The beavers are gone from Beaver Pond Park. And now their name is, too. Arlington County Board members voted unanimously Oct. 18 to rename the property ‘Ballston Wetland Park,’ in hopes of encouraging the public to visit the natural surroundings.” [Sun Gazette]

Issues with Arlington Traffic Cams — From Dave Statter: “A quick survey of the 49 @arlingtonva traffic cameras east & south of I-395 shows 20 of them, or 40%, don’t work. I’m sure it isn’t any better in the rest of the system. Maybe worse.” [Twitter, Twitter]

Fundraiser for Stranded Family — “The family, which planned the trip to celebrate the mother and youngest daughter’s birthdays, was visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa when someone robbed them. The person stole the family’s luggage, passports, and more than $21,000 in cash. ‘It’s been my sister’s dream to go to Italy, and we tried making her dream come true,’ Stephanie Trujillo of Arlington wrote on a GoFundMe page about her family’s vacation to Italy.” [Patch]

YHS Field Hockey Reigns — “In another convincing performance, the Yorktown Patriots repeated as the Liberty District tournament champion in girls high-school field hockey, as the top seed outscored its two opponents 8-1.” [Sun Gazette]

It’s Monday — Overcast throughout the day. High of 64 and low of 55. Sunrise at 7:28 am and sunset at 6:19 pm. []
