Yorktown Beats W-L — “Led by a shutdown defense and a power running offense, the visiting Yorktown Patriots blanked the Washington-Liberty Generals, 27-0, in the final regular-season football game for the Arlington high-school rivals the afternoon of Nov. 5.

House May Get Historic Designation — “Arlington in recent years has lost several homes to the wrecking ball after their owners refused to support community efforts at including them in local historic districts. But in the latest instance, the homeowner and preservationists are on the same page. As a result, it could be just a few weeks before Arlington County Board members formally designate a Virginia Square property – known as the Anderson House for a couple who lived in it long ago – as its own historic district.” [Sun Gazette]

Holiday Market This Weekend — “Alanna Rivera Studios presents the Cherrydale Holiday Art Market showcasing artists and makers from Arlington, D.C., and Maryland.
