South Lakes’ ‘Phantom’ Earns Rave Reviews – South Lakes High School’s production of the musical “Phantom” earned the school favorable reviews, particularly from peers in the “Cappies” program, which allows students to play the role of theater critic and take in high school shows across Northern Virginia. Kathleen McNerney of Bishop Ireton High School called South Lakes’ version of the musical an “eerily lovely” production with “emotionally strong performances” that kept audiences drawn in until the end.

‘Terrific’ Week of Weather Ahead For Reston – The Capital Weather Gang is actually using the word “terrific” to describe the weather that’s in store for Reston and the wider area this week. Highs will mostly be in the 70s with clear skies–and if you’re missing the heat, don’t worry, because it’s expected to return around Thursday, when temperatures will creep back up into the 80s.
