A reader reports at 11:53pm Sunday night:

“we saw the aftermath of a bad crash involving four cars on the southeast corner of North Capitol St and Bryant NE. One individual appeared to have substantial injuries and was taken to an ambulance in a stretcher. Notably, she was driving a car with diplomatic plates. Secret Service arrived after MPD. She did not cause the crash. I spoke with a Lyft driver who arrived on the scene shortly after the crash and tried to help the driver of the car that did cause the crash. Read More

From a press release:

“Today we announce the formation of a new citizens group: Develop McMillan. Formed in September 2020 to support the development and revitalization of the McMillan Sand Filtration site, this group of citizens from Bloomingdale, Stronghold and other local neighborhoods numbers 300 members strong and grows each day. This decommissioned industrial site has sat vacant, decaying and unused for decades thanks to needless delays.

The McMillan project has been in the works for many years, with input from the community going back as far as 2007. Read More
