Warming up to solar? – Fairfax County is holding a free information session today, and will be offering real estate tax credits, solar energy systems discounts, and more to home and business owners. (WTOP)

The throwback comments section – A Reston resident had their Letter To The Editor published in The Washington Post. The topic? The split between Reston and the rest of Fairfax County about density and proposed growth. (The Washington Post)

That’s a lot of butts – Reston business Waitbusters hit 50,000 customers seated since launching their software about a year ago. (Restaurant News)

Everyone’s a critic – A theater review of Reston Community Player’s Thoroughly Modern Millie. Sounds like it was a good time. (Maryland Theatre Guide)

We’re taking a hiatus – Our morning newsletter will be taking a break through May 10, as the editor is away. ARLnow’s assistant managing editor, Bridget Reed Morawski, will be stepping in to cover Reston.

The photo in the morning newsletter was provided with a caption that it is a Great Blue Heron. Another reader has chimed in to say that it is actually a Great Green Heron. Additionally, the Reston editor will be returning May 10, not May 8.

    Wow. Between the poorly written piece in the South Lakes Sentinel, and this “reporter’s” poor reading comprehension, it is clear the future of journalism is doomed.

    Founder’s Day was the 14th.

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for the comment. Looks like my sleepy eyes mistook the 14th for 14th annual. I’ll update now.

    Will there be an official “Founder’s Day” salute someday?

    If you want to mark a day for founding of Reston then sure.

    Just seems a little overboard to celebrate a man who was just trying to make a buck.
