More Metro maintenance: Starting today, the Dupont Circle Metro station’s south exit will be closed for repairs. That’s bad news for a busy station where one or more of the north exit escalators are often out of service.

Occupy stays put: A federal judge ruled that the government must notify Occupy D.C. protesters if it plans to evict them. So far, the protesters are still sleeping in McPherson Square in defiance of overnight camping rules.

Family protects local legacy: Johns Hopkins University and a farmer’s heirs are at odds over the fate of a 108-acre Gaithersburg farm. The heirs have sued the university to block its plans to build a research campus on the land.

Coming up today on

— President Obama will visit a community center in Falls Church, Va. to talk about the economy.

— A D.C. Council committee will vote on whether to repeal the city’s controversial Internet gambling initiative. Mayor Vincent Gray has said he supports the repeal.

— It’s going to be another unseasonably warm day. Check with the Capital Weather Gang for updates.
