“ANC Commissioner Amy Hemingway and resident Lydia Barclay being the first to sit on the benches.”

ANC Commissioner Amy Hemingway reports:

“I am thrilled to report NPS is in the process of installing four benches in Sherman Circle. This is the result of residents’ requests and passion, and support from ANC 4D, Mayor Bowser, Councilmember Todd, and 4C Commissioner Joe Martin.

The benches arrived at 6:56am this morning. And by 7am Ms. Lydia Barclay, from 8th and Hamilton, was the first person to sit on them. She couldn’t contain her excitement, having spent nearly 40 years walking this circle. While Ms. Barclay sat for a times seven minutes, she named countless benefits of the benches, from “welcoming residents to rest after exercise to reading a book.” She named a number of her friends she was starting to tell so they could come down soon.

A reader reports:

“So this happened late afternoon Friday, July 14 in Petworth, in the 900 block of Randolph Street, NW. I live a couple doors down. Our management company is trying to obtain the police report but it doesn’t appear anyone in our condo association witnessed the accident. I’m absolutely baffled as to how the car made it this far (you can’t tell from the pic but it took out a metal railing by the stairs along with a good chunk of the brick). It’s very lucky it was raining Friday, as there are often kids or dog walkers along that sidewalk.”

From an email:

The Friends of the Soldiers Home hosts a free 4th of July Fireworks viewing party on the grounds of the Old Soldiers Home in Washington, DC. The party is at an elevated spot on one of the highest hills in Washington, DC and is a superb place for watching the fireworks. Our events are a way to support the veterans of the home and the local community through entertainment and fun.”

“Dear PoPville,

Background: A really bad thing happened to me yesterday, June 28. About 7:55 in the morning, I was in the crosswalk on the south side of Sherman Circle, heading to Illinois Ave., when a speeding SUV nearly hit me. I had a split second to decide what to do, and chose to leap back toward the Circle to avoid being hit; unfortunately, that meant leaping onto the sidewalk face first. End result is a broken nose, lost front tooth, and too many cuts, scrapes and soft tissue damage to discuss, but all, thankfully. will heal (and I have good insurance).

I wanted to write to you to give kudos to all the people who immediately came to my assistance. (more…)
