Rāko Folo — “A sign outside of Courthouse coffee shop Rāko says the espresso machine is out of order, but a reader sent these photos suggesting that the business owes money to Arlington County.” Rāko was selected earlier this year to open a location at Amazon’s HQ2. [Twitter]

New 911 Mapping — “Today RapidDeploy, the leader in cloud-native mapping and analytics solutions for Public Safety, announces that RapidDeploy Radius Mapping has been selected by Arlington, Virginia as their new 9-1-1 map. Radius Mapping is currently live in multiple 9-1-1 centers in the Washington, DC area, including Alexandria and Montgomery County, with more coming before the end of the year.” [PR Newswire]

Yorktown Falls — “Momentum, a much-needed edge in athletic competition, was never on the side of the Yorktown Patriots’ offense during the football team’s 6D North Region tournament semifinal game against the host and top-seed Madison Warhawks. Fifth-seeded Yorktown’s season ended with a 21-7 loss in that Nov. 18 high-school contest in Vienna, snapping the Patriots’ four-game winning streak.” [Sun Gazette]

Turkey Trot Closures — “The Arlington Turkey Trot 17th Annual 5k Fun Run will take place on Thursday, November 24, 2022. The Arlington County Police Department will conduct the following road closures from approximately 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. to accommodate the race.” [ACPD]

Arlington Bishop’s Pro-Life Post — “The new pro-life chair for the U.S. Catholic bishops wants pregnant women who are struggling or feeling scared to know that they are not alone. ‘I would like to say and, in such a heartfelt way, for them to know that they are not alone,’ Bishop Michael Burbidge of Arlington, Virginia, told CNA hours after being elected to his new position Nov. 16.” [Catholic News Agency]

Alexandria Eyes Zoning Changes — “Alexandria could be on the verge of some of its biggest steps yet in the fight to make housing affordable in a city where housing prices continue to outpace wages. At a meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 22, the City Council could jump-start a process set to run through next year that could dramatically reshape pieces of the city’s zoning code in an effort to make land use more equitable and inclusive.” [ALXnow]

Backlash Over MLK Omission — “Virginia’s proposed changes to the state’s history standards in the classroom are receiving some criticism from Gov. Glenn Youngkin. Youngkin recently expressed disappointment with his administration’s latest proposed history standards, released last week. He acknowledged omissions and mistakes regarding how race relations would be taught, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch.” [WTOP, Fox 5]

It’s Monday — Clear throughout the day. High of 50 and low of 25. Sunrise at 6:59 am and sunset at 4:52 pm. []
