Community Garden in PTW at 8th/Ingraham/7th/Hamilton

Hey Popville–

I live in PTW around 7th and Gallatin. There is a community garden on the inside of the 8th/Ingraham/7th/Hamilton block that I am trying to figure out who manages (I’ve attached a google earth pic) so I can try to get a plot in there. Does anyone in the neighborhood have any intel? I really want to grow some potatoes this summer and will reward any leads with some fruits (potatoes?) of my labor. Thank yoU!

Pet food/ Sick pets?

My cat has thankfully (i hope) bounced back from whatever she was sick with last week, but i’ve noticed a number of my friends have ill pets or ones that died young, suddenly, and unexpectedly.
My boss just told me about an issue with Purina food and I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed issues with their pets?

Pot Hole repair.

I know the pot holes are a problem every winter in the city. I just wish they could fix them quicker, and not have to wait 6 months plus or more for the repairs. The Piney Branch exit and ramp from Rock Creek Pkwy to Arkansas Ave. is terrible to drive through and very damaging to the car when you cannot avoid the holes with on-coming traffic, which a driver should not have to contend with anyway. The roads in many so called ‘third world’ countries have better maintained roads than the District. What’s up with the DC road maintenance crew?

Car tagged with graffiti- 1400 block of Harvard St. NW

Any other neighbors have this problem recently? I came out to my car this morning on the 1400 block of Harvard Street NW to find my car had been tagged.

I’ve reported it to the MPD online in case they keep track of this. Is there anything else I should do (aside from I already removing the graffiti, which came off eventually with a clay detailing kit)? Thanks!

Tips on building a roof deck

I’m really interested in building a roof deck on my Trinidad DC rowhouse. I’ve read the related Popville posts (http://www.popville.com/2011/04/dear-pop-getting-a-roof-deck/, http://www.popville.com/2010/01/dear-pop-roofdeck-suggestions/), but it doesn’t look like there’s been a discussion on this topics in a few years. Does anyone have any advice on good architects, builders, etc.? Any recent cost estimates? Or any other advice or tips? Thanks!

Call for Witnesses – Cyclist hit by White Range Rover Sunday Feb. 1 near HowardU

I am a cyclist and, while trying to turn left, I was hit from the back by a White Range Rover on Superbowl Sunday at 10:30 PM, on the intersection of 4th St. NW and Bryant St. NW. The driver lied about the incident, saying that I ran a red and cut him off, and the police report reflects a ‘he said/she said’ account, which isn’t enough to pursue compensation from the insurance. In other words, I need eye witness testimony to help prove my case. My bicycle is destroyed, I was bedridden for 9 days, and I have sustained multiple injuries to my back, neck and head – I can barely stand or walk for more than a few minutes. The driver has not been cited and he may not be unless I get further witness accounts. Any help or recommendations would be appreciated

Any witnesses, please reply

Thanks!

Workers Comp Policy for Nanny

Hi POPville,

For those that have a nanny, do you carry workers comp insurance for them? If yes, which carriers do you use? We are having trouble finding an insurance (local or nation-wide) that will provide the coverage in DC.

Thanks!

Is Roaming Black Cat Around 7th & Quincy Yours?

I live by 7th & Quincy, and there is a very sweet black cat who comes to my window every day. He/she doesn’t have a collar, but it’s not skinny, scarred, or overly skittish, which makes me wonder if it’s just someone’s indoor/outdoor cat, or if it has escaped the safety of his home.

If I don’t hear from anyone I’ll probably start setting water and dry food outside, because I am a softy and it’s so awfully cold outside. But I don’t want to start double-feeding someone’s cat and then make it sick and/or fat, and I don’t want to encourage it to leave his home if he does indeed have one.

Thanks for reading guys!

Roll-up backyard door recommendations

Hi! I know that this topic has been covered in the past (2010 and 2011) but I would like to re-visit it in 2015. I would like to have a metal roll-up door with a remote installed to secure my back yard. Does anyone one out there have any recent experience installing one and could you share pertinent information? I also want to mention that, I can’t afford the $8K-$10K charged by Pooner & Sons that readers had quoted several years ago, and I am not interested in a traditional garage door like those that the flippers are installing.

Thanks!

Was there just a car chase through NoMa?

I’m on L street NE and hear a bunch of sirens coming closer, not all that unusual, then I hear a loud bang! When I look out my window, I see one SUV with its front smashed and a line of cop cars speeding down the street (going the wrong way too.) Some peel off north and head up Capitol, the rest continue on L. I did notice while one cop car was slowing down to swerve around the SUV, someone jumped out of the back and started running down L (and across Capitol. I’m not sure if the cop was pursuing this person or not, but they kept up with him until he ducked beside the Baptist church, and out of my view.

Anyone know anything else?

attached: pic of the SUV and some cop cars that showed up afterwards.
