From MPD:

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that we have had another shooting in the Southwest area. Last night, at approximately 2100 hours my team heard (and you all let us know) that there were several gunshots coming from the area. We found over 25 shell casings in the west alley in the 1300 block of Half Street Southwest (the alley just south of the unit block of N Street SW). About an hour after the shooting, we had a victim arrive via private vehicle to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his posterior. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Friends and I attended our first DC United game ever at the new Audi field last Wednesday, and we had a great time and decided to return for Sunday’s game against Atlanta.

We were directed to go around the stadium and deposit our purses into storage, which of course cost an additional $15 per locker. Friends (all the women in our group were turned away) and I spent 20 minutes waiting in this line–which was of course all women, along with a few male companions–and by the time we got to our seats, we had missed 28 minutes of the game. So all in all, I was charged an additional $15 and missed 30% of the match of my $60 tickets, or $33 in total from this ridiculous policy.

Apparently this has been Audi Field’s bag policy since the stadium opened in July, but I see several issues: (more…)

Thanks to Erik for sending:

“I just wanted to send an update about some lesser known, but super important updates here in SW. They have finally redone the curb on L’Enfant Plaza road, making a gradient instead of that 8″ curb. So it’s now much better for bike access to the pedestrian bridge connecting L’Enfant to Potomac Island (and it is now ADA accessible!). Also, they are painting green bike lanes, added stairs from Banneker Park to the Wharf, and now have the sidewalks done to the intersection at Maine and 9th St SW.”
