FISH Fling This Week — The ninth annual FISH Fling Gala to benefit Herndon Reston FISH (Friendly Instant Sympathetic Help) is this Saturday. The FISH Fling is crucial in providing over $50,000 to support FISH’s Family Assistance Program, which helps hundreds of families annually. The event also honors those volunteers and partners who have made a difference in the Herndon-Reston community. Tickets are $85 ($40 tax deductible). [Herndon Reston FISH]

DC Area Pricey For Renters — The District (and surrounding areas like Farifax County ) come in No. 2 as the most expensive rental market in the country, says the National Low Income Housing Coalition. The Washington area comes in behind Hawaii, where a person needs to make an average of $31.54 an hour to afford a two-bedroom apartment. Around here, that number is $28.25. Virginia in general comes in at No. 10 on the list. [WTOP]

Who Wants to Head the Silver Line? — Pat Nowakowski, the executive director of the Silver Line rail project, announced last week he is leaving his $257,000 a year job. With the project behind schedule, that’s a tough position, and Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority CEO Jack Potter says there are “big shoes to fill.” Here’s the job description.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
