“Dear PoPville,

I lost a ring on my run tonight and I’m desperate. Small, gold, has the initials ELE on it. I was on 14th from Monroe to mt. Pleasant, Mt pleasant to Harvard, Harvard to Adams mill rd, Adams mill to park, park to 16th, down 16th to Euclid, Euclid to 13th, 13th to Monroe and back to 14th and Monroe. Convoluted route I realize. If anyone is wandering around on those streets and can keep an eye out for it I would SERIOUSLY appreciate it. The ring isn’t anything fancy, just major sentimental value. It’s a very old gift from my grandparents who both passed away and I’m just so sad to have lost it. Figured it was worth asking my kind neighbors to keep a look out before I give up. If you happen to find it, please send me an email ([email protected]).”

Thanks to Rick for letting us know:

“Joan of Arc is swordless again at Meridian Hill Park. Any ideas when and what happened?”

The iconic Jeanne d’arc statue was completely restored in 2011.

[Ed. Note: Check out a video of the original dedication with President Harding in 1922 here.]

Maybe someone can figure out how to do this again in the meantime:
