“Dear PoPville,

Getting a jump start on my spring cleaning and I’m looking to sell an old ring, no diamond but there is gold and a semi-precious gem. I was wondering if any of your readers could recommend a reputable shop or website they’ve used?”


Latest from MPD last night around 10:45pm:

“5D Alert: Confirmed armed carjacking at 7th Street NE and Franklin Street NE. Lookout for two B/Ms juvenile wearing a gray hoodie gray jeans puffy jacket armed with a handgun, and a juvenile wearing black clothes, and a gray skull cap.”

There have sadly, been many more recent reports that we’ve previously reported and others which folks have sent in. Please be aware and be safe.

“The Fountain of Light and Water (frequently called Bartholdi Fountain) was designed by sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi (1834-1904) who is best known for creating the Statue of Liberty.

The fountain was moved to its current location on Independence Ave, SW in 1932.”
