“Dear PoPville,

Two very horny raccoons on our front porch who spent the better part of two hours making out and then forming a mini fight club with a third raccoon. Removal suggestions welcome as they seem to have taken refuge under our porch.”


If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

“Dear PoPville,

I live in 16th Street Heights and was rudely awakened shortly after 6 by a helicopter doing low altitude circles this morning…this was followed by a cacophony of sirens about an hour later…any idea what that was all about?”


“Around 610am this morning there was a low flying helicopter circling Petworth. Super loud – it woke me up and made the floors of my apartment vibrate. Anyone have any idea what’s going on?”

Update from MPD:

This was a US Park Police helicopter assisting MPD with an investigation in the 900 block of Shepherd Street, NW.

Not sure if related but last night MPD reported: (more…)

This scenario is crazy. From MPD:

“Wednesday night at approximately 8 PM the victim and suspect were involved in a mutual fist fight in the 4400 block of Iowa Ave NW. During the fight the suspect produced a knife and attempted to stab the victim but the victim was able to disarm him. The suspect then produced a sling shot and shot the victim in the head with a rock. The victim was treated for minor injuries. The suspect fled on foot but is known and is an acquaintance of the victim. The Fourth District Detectives Office will be applying for an arrest warrant in this case.”

Alright, alright, alright. It’s been a minute – so let’s remedy that. Meet me and some of the folks from Real Living at Home next Wednesday, November 8th from 5:30 – 7:30pm (though I’ll probably stay later) at Homestead (3911 Georgia Avenue, NW.) First 40 folks get a free drink ticket! Hey-o. I’ll also bring some t-shirts as usual. And while it’s not an officially anniversary party – let’s also toast PoPville turning 11 years old this November. And let’s also toast the world still spinning round and round. See you in a week!!
