“Dear PoPville,

The playground at Ft Bayard has been closed for renovation with no progress since December. I’m getting nowhere trying to find out who to contact for information.”

Ed. Note: Looks like this is run by the National Park Service, in which case Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office might be the best bet? Anyone know what’s going on here?


“Dear PoPville,

Thought you might be interested in this house going up – a teardown of a bungalow and a build of a crazy big house, totally out of proportion to what’s around it. I don’t know the zoning laws but this is taking up the whole lot. You don’t even see the two car garage to the right.

Here is what it’s going to look like – don’t know where the lawn surrounding the house is coming from because there will be no lawn or yard when this house is done.”

More disturbing reports involving children from MPD:

“The Second District was recently alerted to several incidents in which unidentified male subjects were observed watching children.

While we have not had any reported abductions or attempted abductions, we wanted to provide our community with a synopsis of each incident and a description of each subject. We have documented each incident and ask that you immediately report any suspicious person(s) or activity in the community so that the person(s) are identified.

We have increased our visibility in the areas around schools and playgrounds and ask that the community continue the great job of being vigilant.
