We’ve reached the end of August and the Labor Day holiday is nigh. Before we head off into the big three-day weekend, though, let’s take a look back at the biggest stories on Reston Now in recent days.
The following articles were the five most-clicked links on Reston Now this past week.
- Fairfax County School Board Vote is Tuesday (Karen Keys-Gamarra won the election.)
- Mouthpiece for Reston Town Center Merchants Says His Business Is on the Outs
- Arrest Made After Attempted Robbery in Hunters Woods Parking Lot
- Now Open: Coopers Hawk Winery and Restaurant on Sunset Hills Road

This week also saw the first community input meeting on the Hook Road Recreation Area project from Reston Association, which came with controversy along with the beginning of the discussion. We will continue to follow that process as it progresses over the next several months.
And in late-breaking news Friday, At-Large Director Ray Wedell informed Reston Now that he will resign from the RA Board. We’re continuing to follow that story and will provide more information when it becomes available.
In addition, the week marked the one-year anniversary of an unsolved hit-and-run pedestrian death on North Shore Drive. Police are still looking for information.
Feel free to discuss these topics and anything else that happened locally this week. Have a great weekend!

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.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
