If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Dear PoPville,

Anyone know of anything preventing me from legally posting a “No Dumping” sign in the alley behind my house? My neighbors and I are tired of finding new pieces of trash dumped in the alley/empty lots that are located behind our houses– would like to at least try to discourage would-be dumpers with a “No Dumping” sign.”
