Artisphere hosted Tandem NSI's recent National Security Deal Day to identify opportunities for entrepreneurs. We'll tell you more about that later in our program, but first...

New transit stations along Columbia Pike will cost 40 percent less than originally anticipated, thanks to a review and re-design. Adjustments to the canopy, simplifying the design and using standardized parts allows the county to build four different size stations, and cut costs. To learn more about the transit stations and streetcar project, go to and search "streetcar."

The 19th Annual Walk for the Animals was great fun for all the participants. The walk raises money to support animal care and rescue services. To adopt a pet from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, check their website and choose from the dogs, cats, birds, and others who are looking for their Forever Home.

Tandem NSI brings the resources of Amplifier Ventures and Arlington Economic Development together. Its Deal Day program matches national security entrepreneurs with those who need their skills. To learn more about events offered by TandemNSI, go to their website at

May is Asian-Pacific-American Heritage Month, and events around the County focused on the contributions of Asian and Pacific Americans. At the Columbia Pike Library, visitors enjoyed poetry and a film from Nepal.

Check our schedule to see this and other ATV programs featured at the library.

Members of the Arlington police department gathered to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day, honoring the memory of those law enforcement officers who gave their lives during service to our community. The commemoration took place during National Police Week, which has been observed annually nationwide since it was proclaimed by President Kennedy in 1962.
