If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit.
“The First District has seen an increase in package thefts the past few years around the holiday season. First District Officers are aware of the historic trend and are giving special attention to residential areas. Within this past week, we have made three arrests of individuals regarding separate package thefts. In two of these incidents, the Officers were initially alerted by concerned neighbors who called 911 to report suspicious activity. I would like to thank the citizens who reported the activity and request the assistance of the entire community in being vigilant and reporting to 911 anytime they observe suspicious activity or persons. In each of the below incidents, the stolen property was also recovered.
· On Friday November 29th, at about 6:45 pm, a 19 year old male was arrested for a package theft from the 200 block of 11th Street SE
· On Saturday November 30th, at about 9:30 am, a 50 year old was arrested for the theft of a package from the 600 block of A Street SE
· On Thursday December 5th, at about 7:30 pm, a 25 year old male was arrested for the theft of a package from the 1200 block of Independence Ave SE
In addition to your vigilance, we also like to ask that you consider having packages delivered to an alternate site (work place or friend’s home) where someone would be present to accept delivery.”
“This is a very clean freshly painted 1-bedroom unit off of the U Street corridor. Featuring new carpeting, solid wood cabinets, cable ready wiring, security bars plus some off-street parking, this apartment is ideal and is vacant and move-in available. Also, METRO, shops and restaurants are just a couple blocks away.”
Unfortunately no photos of the interior but seems like it could be a good price – this 1 bed/1bath is going for $1,650/Mo.
I was wondering about the progress on the Bacon Funeral Home at 3449 14th St. NW, and wonder if you have any information regarding recent developments on this property. From your last blog post on 03/21/13, Bacon Funeral Home was given 30 days to enclose the building by the city council. In any case that this did not occur, (still remains open to the elements) it would forward this matter on to DCRA. 30 days has already occurred, many times over.
I find it frustrating that we are talking about raising the building height restriction in DC, when developments like the Bacon property are left to languish for years without repercussion. Imagine if a huge, towering development like Louis at 14th and U had all the issues that Bacon Funeral Home has had. This sets a terrible precedent for other property owners and developers.”
Ed. Note: I’ll tweet this query to Council Member Jim Graham’s office and DCRA and post any updates they send. Anyone else hear anything about the status?
