Loiterers around 7-11:

“I used to live near the 7-11 on 14th and Rhode Island, and would always see people hanging around outside – just chalked it up to it being a part of 7-11’s nationwide charm. But recently, I’ve noticed, pretty consistently, there are no more loiterers.

Now that I live near the 7-11 at U and 12th, with 2-3 people always asking for money, I’m wondering….how did the 7-11 at 14th and RI get rid of the loitering? Was is it the store? Was it the neighbors? Curious to see if I can implement any similar tactics at the 12th and U st store. Open to ideas. Thanks.”

Red Pandas in beloved in PoPville. If you are so inclined – from Friends of the National Zoo:

“At the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, we strive to further scientific research to benefit species in the wild and provide the best quality of life for the animals in our care. But we can’t do it without you!

As a result, we have an urgent need to raise $150,000 to create a comfortable, temperature-controlled indoor retreat complete with branches for climbing and multi-level platforms for playing and sleeping for our red pandas at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.

Your gift will help build this much needed facility for red pandas on Asia Trail. The success of this project will allow keeper staff to better manage the red pandas in our care so that we can continue our important conservation research. Will you join our efforts to save species and improve your Zoo by giving to the Red Panda Retreat Annual Appeal?”
