“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I were running with our dog past Big Bear around 8:30am this morning (Sunday) when two dogs – they looked like young-ish vizslas – who were tied up outside Big Bear jumped into our path and one bit our dog Charlie. We managed to get between them and break it up before anything too serious happened. The owners came outside and we let them know what had happened but in the panic we left without getting their name or contact information (stupid mistake, I know!) By the time we got our dog home we realized that his back leg was bleeding quite badly. We’ve been to the animal hospital etc. but for peace of mind and after-care we want to see if we can find the owners to make sure their dogs are fully vaccinated.”

If you are or know the owners please email me at [email protected] and I’ll connect you to OP. Thanks.

“WMATA filed suit in U.S. District Court today to allow the Authority to implement an anti-fatigue policy designed to prevent bus and train operators, and other safety-critical employees from working seven-consecutive days.

Following a comprehensive fatigue management study in 2013, Metro created the first Fatigue Risk Management Policy in the transit industry for Metro employees in safety-critical positions, including train and bus operators.
