Travel Woes at DCA — “Hundreds of Southwest Airlines flights have been canceled at Eastern airports Tuesday as the fallout from the pre-Christmas storm continues. At Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., 89 flights were canceled in the past 24 hours as of Tuesday morning, according to the tracker site FlightAware. Dulles Airport said 30 flights were canceled in the past day.” [Patch]
Planning for No More DCA? — “Give Michael Imbesi credit for thinking to the future. Way into the future. At the Dec. 17 Arlington County Board meeting, the local resident used the public-comment period to press county leaders to start thinking about an eventual reuse of the land on which, for the past 80 years, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport has occupied. Acknowledging that it is probably far down the road – but perhaps within 50 years – Imbesi said the airport may become redundant owing to what he believes will be a decrease in air travel.” [Sun Gazette]
Xmas Eve Retail Rumble at Pentagon Row — “The employee observed the four female suspects, whom he recognized from previous incidents, enter the business. The employee attempted to contact dispatch, during which Suspect One knocked the phone out of his hand. The four suspects then followed the employee throughout the store and assaulted him before leaving. A short time later, the four suspects returned, during which Suspect One threw a stone towards the employee while Suspect Four assaulted him. The four suspects then fled the scene on foot.” [ACPD]
Residents Fume Over ART Bus Parking — “A seemingly pro-forma decision to remove a long-gone stretch of street from Arlington planning maps this month served as more proof that scars have not healed in a springtime battle between the County Board and one North Arlington neighborhood… The discontent overflowed in the spring, when County Board members, after a contentious public hearing, approved locating the ART buses there temporarily. The county government, civic association and some residents are now engaged in legal maneuvering on the issue.” [Sun Gazette]
