Morning Notes

Rosslyn Station Evacuation Last Night — From Dave Statter: “@ArlingtonVaFD arriving minutes ago at Rosslyn Metro confirming haze of smoke in the station & checking for source of the problem. Passengers reported hearing a loud pop or explosion under a train. Rail traffic shut down.” [Twitter, Twitter, Twitter]

Late Night Pentagon Pile Driving Irks Some — From Dave Statter: “It appears after a couple nights of this neighbors complained to @ArlingtonVaPD. It made me chuckle, as I’m sure its does you, that anyone thinks local police have even the slightest chance of getting it stopped. No matter how many decibels, that noise complaint is DOA.” [Twitter]

ACFD Honors Retirees — “ACFD Retirees Chief Fire Marshal Bill Shelton (Middle/25yrs) Asst. FM Chris Cox (L/30yrs) and Deputy FM Mike Crider (R/22yrs) were presented their shadow boxes by Chief Fire Marshal Matthew Cobb yesterday. These 3 were instrumental in the Fire Prevention Office! Congratulations!” [Twitter]

Local Farmers Markets Unionize — “Today, workers at the Washington, DC-based nonprofit FRESHFARM voted to unionize with United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 400… The unionized workforce covers approximately 25 employees responsible for staffing and operating 28 local farmers markets in DC, Maryland and Virginia.” [Press Release]

Groups Push Back on Discipline Bill — “Parents and teacher groups in Northern Virginia are opposing a state education bill they contend would disproportionately affect students with disabilities, students of color and those who are low-income. HB 1461 would require the Virginia Department of Education to establish a uniform system of discipline for ‘disruptive’ behavior, removing control from local school districts and school boards.” [Patch]

Nearby: VT Campus Construction Continues — “Stepping over rough gravel near the Potomac with a giant crane swinging overhead, Ken Smith, the chief operating officer of the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, said, ‘You’re actually inside the building right now — we’re in the two-story atrium space.’ It took a little imagination, but then again, Smith was leading a construction tour at the symbolic midpoint of a project poised to transform technology education in the region.” [Washington Post]

Pappy Returns to ABC Stores — “Several products from the highly collectible Van Winkle line will be available for the opportunity to purchase through the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority’s (ABC) online lotteries in February and March. The whiskey, often dubbed the hardest to find spirit due to its low production, is offered by lottery to ensure equitable distribution.” [Press Release]

It’s Thursday — Overcast throughout the day. High of 66 and low of 45. Sunrise at 7:08 am and sunset at 5:40 pm. []

3 Car Detached Garages

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.
