“Caught this just a few minutes ago- [Friday 4:15pm] this taxicab was literally in flames. Luckily there is a fire station close by and it appears the driver was able to get out of the car. Pennsylvania was/ might still be blocked off from Washington Circle to 20th Street.”
“Happening right now at the house on the northwest corner of 3rd and Varnum. I woke up to screams and within minutes had this view from my porch. There’s 4-5 fire trucks, several ambulances and a “mobile air unit.” Smoke is pouring out of the house and I could hear the firemen smashing windows.
Feeling incredibly helpless…. Please send good thoughts to our corner of Petworth.”

“Farmers market opening will feature ribbon cutting, raffle, and, of course, fresh, local food!
The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace (The Marketplace) will open for its fifth season on April 19. Come celebrate the long anticipated return of spring at the Marketplace with a ribbon cutting, a raffle full of great prizes from local businesses, live music, and, most importantly, fresh, local food! [some great raffle prizes available from local businesses- Maple, Room 11,Meridian Pint, The Coupe, Sticky Fingers, Red Rocks, Acre 121, Yoga Heights, and more, as well as two Washington Nationals Baseball tickets.]
The Marketplace will also kick off a fundraising campaign to raise $10,000 for the farmers market matching funds program. This program helps low-income market customers spend more money on healthy fruits and vegetables. Since 2010, we have provided over $55,000 to low-income customers who shop at the market using federal nutrition programs like food stamps.

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send 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. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible.
