restoring an antique chandelier:

“I recently inherited an 70+ year old, small lead crystal chandelier that has been sitting in a box for about 30 years. I’d like to get it rewired and cleaned up so I can hang it from my dining room ceiling. Does anyone have any recommendations on local businesses that do this sort of work? Any tips on installation or care?”

Beeping sound at 14th and Q:

“There’s been a loud, sporadic beeping sound near 14th and Q for at least a week. It sounds like a truck backing up … beep beep beep … but lasts for hours and throughout the night. It’s going on right now over the rain. Anybody have a clue what it is? Apart from maybe a yuppie mating call. Would love to find a solution.”
