Scholarships in Braylon Meade’s Memory — “With such a wide-reaching legacy, Braylon’s parents wanted the fund to be just as dynamic. So instead of creating one scholarship in Braylon’s name, they created three. ‘By establishing three scholarships, we hope to touch several different aspects of Braylon’s life,’ Kris explains.” [Press Release]

Missing Middle Roils Nextdoor — “The debates on Nextdoor in Arlington have been particularly intense over the past year, both Harrell and Bodine say, because the missing middle rezoning proposal came out in April and has been going through the county review process. For his part, Harrell suspects he’s posted hundreds of comments in the last year on the missing middle issue alone. Bodine accused the moderators of her neighborhood forum of being biased in favor of missing middle and inappropriately suspending some of the people who agree with her.” [Vice]

Pedestrians Struck on the Pike — “Scanner: Two people struck by driver around the intersection of Columbia Pike and S. Adams Street, near Penrose Square. Both victims conscious and alert. Driver and striking vehicle reportedly left scene.” [Twitter]

Chase on I-395 — “Afternoon drama on I-395… Virginia State Police chased a red sedan through Arlington to the 14th Street Bridge before terminating the pursuit.” [Twitter, Twitter]

Rosslyn’s Raytheon Restructuring — “Arlington’s Raytheon Technologies Corp. said Tuesday it is restructuring its four subsidiary companies into three business segments, citing a need to better align with customer needs. The move comes nearly three years after the blockbuster merger of Raytheon and United Technologies Corp. and seven months after the combined company said it was moving its headquarters from Waltham, Massachusetts, to Arlington.” [Washington Business Journal]
