Amazon Pushes Return to Office — “Amazon CEO Andy Jassy told company employees who defy his edict to return to the office for at least three days a week that ‘it’s probably not going to work out for you.’ Jassy made the comments during a meeting earlier this month during which he expressed frustration over the fact that some employees were not taking the return-to-office mandate seriously, according to the news site Insider, which obtained a recording of the CEO’s comments.” [New York Post]

ACPD K-9 Retires — “Please join ACPD in wishing K9 Astor a happy retirement as he finished his final tour of duty today. For over 10 years, he faithfully served the Arlington community and his fellow officers by making numerous criminal apprehensions, locating evidence, and protecting his handler. We are thankful for his years of service and wish him a happy and relaxing retirement!” [Facebook]

County, Civ Fed Finding Way Forward — “The Arlington County Civic Federation and the Arlington County government… have seen friction in recent years, culminating in the adoption by Civic Federation delegates in March of a resolution highly critical of government transparency. Since then, it looks – from the outside at least – as if both sides are making an effort to bring comity back into the relationship.” [Gazette Leader]

DJO Wins in Squeaker — “In the end, O’Connell held on to defeat the Virginia Academy Patriots of Ashburn, 10-7, Aug. 27 in non-conference high-school football action. The season-opening victory was the Knights’ first since the 2014 campaign” [Gazette Leader]
