Morning Notes

“Colors creeping in with surprising, but not unwelcome speed along Arlington’s Bluemont Trail, with just a little bit of morning sun for highlighting.” (Flickr pool photo by Tom Mockler)

Man Speeds Toward Pentagon Officers — “An Ethiopian man living in Virginia who allegedly yelled ‘F*** America’ and told officers ‘I hate America’ is accused of attempting to attack federal police officers outside the Pentagon last week… [the suspect], 36, allegedly drove through a security checkpoint outside the Pentagon on Friday, speeding over a second security barrier and forcing police to pull guns.” [CBS News]

Halloween Robberies in Crystal City — “At approximately 8:34 p.m. on October 31, police began receiving reports of robberies by force, larcenies and assaults within a close proximity to one another. A lookout for the two suspects was broadcast and responding officers located them in the area of S. Clark Street and 35th Street S. and took them into custody without incident. During the course of the investigation, it was determined the suspects allegedly approached victims, demanded their personal property and stole items to include a cell phone, purse and credit cards. Additionally, two cell phones were stolen from parked, unlocked vehicles.” [ACPD]

Clement Sees Potential Victory — “In her runs for County Board through the years, Audrey Clement once banked a little over 30 percent of the vote in a one-on-one showdown with Democrat Jay Fisette. Given opposition of some voters in North Arlington to the Missing Middle housing proposal, which will effectively eliminate single-family zoning in the county, she believes that, conservatively, she could improve her previous best by more than 10 percentage points.” [Sun Gazette]

Candidate: MM Will Win on Election Day — “‘What matters is the combined [vote] totals of myself and Mr. de Ferranti,” said [County Board candidate Adam] Theo, making his second bid for elected office. ‘It will be a majority, and I’m expecting it to be a supermajority, of voters who express support for Missing Middle.’ If so, ‘that should put a lid on Ms. Clement’s and Arlingtonians for Our Sustainable Future’s shameful misinformation campaign to scare homeowners for their own political gain.'” [Sun Gazette]

Notes on Portland and MM — “The data cited here on tree canopy in Portland predates our plex legalization, which may actually have a net benefit for tree canopy: – left max building footprint untouched in most situations – made driveways optional.” [Twitter]

Marymount Soccer in Championship — “The dream season continued on Wednesday night for Marymount men’s soccer as the Saints avenged their only conference loss to Centenary with a 1-0 win in the Atlantic East Tournament semifinals at Long Bridge Park.” [Marymount University, Twitter]

Zitkála-Ša Remembered — From Arlington National Cemetery: “During National Native American Heritage Month, we honor the life and legacy of [Arlington resident] Zitkála-Ša, buried in Section 2. As an activist and writer, she led national efforts to secure voting rights and socioeconomic equality for American Indians.” [Twitter, Arlington National Cemetery]

It’s Thursday — Partly cloudy throughout the day. High of 66 and low of 51. Sunrise at 7:39 am and sunset at 6:07 pm. []
