“The goal of Yoga Heights is to make yoga accessible for ALL people and ALL budgets. In addition to typical yoga classes, we plan to have classes in Spanish and French, some donation/free classes, kids yoga, seniors yoga, and a “Karma Class” that would be a little more expensive but for each class someone buys, we’ll donate a free class to someone. (Like the Tom’s Shoes model.)”

I had high hopes for Ma Ma’s Southern Cuisine when they were looking to stay open 24 hours and serve breakfast all day. Alas, they were rarely open when I walked by. Hopefully someone solid takes over the space.
“Charles Link, 53, of Washington, D.C., was found guilty today of a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon stemming from the November 2012 stabbing of a man in Northwest Washington, U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced.
Link was found guilty following a trial in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. The Honorable Russell F. Canan scheduled sentencing for Jan. 3, 2014.
According to the government’s evidence at trial, the victim and Link were close friends for more than four years. They socialized together and played chess, and the victim even helped Link at his job at a funeral home. From time to time, Link would loan the victim small amounts of money. Last fall, the two men got into a disagreement over the repayment of a $20 loan. The victim had given Link his food assistance card and had told Link to use it to buy $40 of food, to cover the $20 debt. When Link never used the card and failed to return it, the victim cancelled the card so that he could get a new one and access his food benefits.
On the evening of Nov. 13, 2012, as the victim was walking down a street near his home, he encountered Link and the two began arguing over the debt. When the victim reached the entrance to an alley off the 500 block of Newton Place NW, he was pushed from behind by an unidentified man and fell to the ground. Link joined in the attack and kicked and punched the victim, stating “get me my money.” Link then pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim five times—twice in the chest and rib cage. He and the unidentified man fled, leaving the victim bleeding in an alley.
In announcing the verdict, U.S. Attorney Machen praised the work of those who investigated the case from the Metropolitan Police Department, including detectives from the Fourth Police District. He also acknowledged the efforts of those who handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Paralegal Specialists Wanda Trice and Debra McPherson. Finally, he commended the work of Assistant U.S. Attorney Vivien Cockburn and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Trevor N. McFadden, who assisted in the investigation, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Brittain Shaw, who investigated and prosecuted the case.”
“So there his been a massive manhunt going on for about an hour now at around there area of Georgia and Kenyon. From talking to a cop who recovered the suspects bike on mid block on Keefer Pl. the police started chasing the guy who was on a bike up at Morton Street, he then ditched his bike on Keefer and took off on foot towards Georgia Ave.. From what I understand they found his jacket in front of the Barbershop on the east side of Georgia between Kenyon and Keefer. The police now have the Barber Shop roped off and K-9 unit there. Helicopter circled for a bit, seems like the guy vanished. Anyway crazy showing of the police, driving through alleys, the wrong way on Keefer, foot patrols.”

“The DCFD are responding to a fire in the 700 block of Lamont St. I was working on my front porch on Keefer Pl. when I looked up and saw smoke coming over the roof of the new building on the SW corner of Lamont and Georgia, shortly after a helicopter came over from the medical center and EMS started to arrive, they had it out in less than 15 minutes. Very cool to watch, they put firefighters on the roofs of all the surrounding buildings to fight it and keep it from spreading, they are starting to clear out now.”
