From an email: “A group of us in Bloomingdale are attempting to raise funding to support construction of the Tricia McCauley Memorial Herb Garden in LeDroit Park, with construction scheduled to begin early in the New Year.”

For those not familiar with Tricia you can read about her tragic story here. She was a beloved member of Bloomingdale and so many other communities. RIP.

The fundraiser says:

“Friends and family of Tricia McCauley, in partnership with Common Good City Farm, are honoring her legacy through the creation of the Tricia McCauley Memorial Fund. The fund will preserve Tricia’s love of herbalism and teaching through supporting the ongoing cultivation of the medicinal herb garden, now The Tricia McCauley Memorial Herb Garden, as well as herbalism workshops at Common Good City Farm.

A reader reported last night:

“My neighbor at Parker Flats (2035 2nd Street, NW) was nearly mugged just now (around 7pm) & barely made it in our gates but MPD won’t file a report even though 3 guys threw themselves at our gate trying to get him. Basically they said that since an actual crime was not committed, there was no reportable action.

McDuffie’s office got back to me this morning with a link so my neighbor could file a complaint with the police about the officers not filing a report. McDuffie’s office expressed concern. [“That’s concerning. Would the near-victim be interested in filing a report with the Office of Police Complaints?”] My neighbor was chased by the 3 guys who then slammed against our big metal gates as he closed them, but wasn’t harmed. Apparently the also tried to get into an Uber while it was at a stop sign w a passenger on our corner (2nd & V Sts NW) but the Uber sped off and they threw rocks at it. They also badgered another resident w/o was walking his dogs.”
