Candidate Wants Missing Middle Referendum — “Candidate Natalie Roy said Jan. 26 that if County Board members enact Missing Middle housing changes in the spring as currently anticipated, the public should be asked to authorize the changes in a November referendum… In Virginia, getting an advisory referendum of this type on the ballot is complicated at best, impossible at worst.” [Sun Gazette, Patch]

Origin of Arlington’s Name — “Today, the Arlington Heights folks, says Murawski, would like to “dispel the rumor that we were named after” that long-gone earl (also called Baron Arlington). He put me in touch with Craig Chapman, chairman of the Bibury Parish Council, who knows the subject. Chapman assured me that his study of the 370-year association between our two hometowns shows no link to the other two British Arlingtons, only Bibury’s.” [Falls Church News-Press]

The Wakefield boys scored 123 and won by 77.5 over the runner-up Yorktown Patriots.” [Sun Gazette]

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
