Looking for an accountant in DC!

“I’m a recent first time homeowner, and soon-to-be first time wife, getting married at the end of the summer. My fiancee and I are looking for a qualified, yet affordable, accountant to advise us on various tax issues for our 2015 taxes. For example, whether to file jointly or separately for the year, various condo-related questions, etc. If anyone has a good referral for someone who is well-versed in these issues, please send him/her my way. Thanks!”

A reader writes in with this disgusting/disappointing note on Friday:

“A cyclist spat on me today. I’m a tour guide and I was standing next to the vehicle while my guests were slowly coming to get in, something I’ve done literally hundreds of times before. Directly behind the Jefferson Memorial there is a stretch of Ohio Drive that people often use for loading/unloading. I was standing on this sidewalk next to one of several vehicles in the road when a cyclist on the sidewalk rode toward me, simply turned his head and spat on my face. He didn’t look back as he sped away.

So heads up maybe there’s a serial spitter biking around.”

Ed. Note: In a perfect world, one caught spitting in someone’s face would be punished severely. In reality this chump will never get caught nor punished. Sadly, lowlifes like this have been witnessed using all forms of transport – so let’s not focus so much on the bike – but I hope we can all condemn the action itself.

“86-year-old Petworth resident Sarah Wright enjoying a near-perfect, mid-summer afternoon in her secret garden. She and husband, Earl, 87, a retired Howard University employee, have tended to the organic garden for about 40 years. “But his health no longer allows for that,” she said Friday.”

Ed. Note: Hoping someone can take over the reins so Mr. and Mrs. Wright, and others, can continue to enjoy the garden for years to come.
