“Dear PoPville,

I saw your story about Francis Stevens pool being closed for the few months it is open in the summer – announced on May 24, a week before it was to open. That was just infuriating – that the city could not have determined what repairs needed to be done and did them between September of last year and May of this year, and notifying residents a week before it was to open.

Now today I went to go swimming at the Dunbar pool and there was a sign that said that the Dunbar pool is closed for the summer season starting June 17. WTF? Read More


Thanks to Brent and Melissa for sharing around 3:30pm Sunday: “From Florida an Rhode Island Ave NW…. Plate obliterated but based on inspection sticker placement- maybe a MD driver…

Thanks to J. for sending: “Wild crash at the corner of RI and NJ an hour ago (3:11am). Astonishingly loud. Amazingly, no one appeared to be seriously injured, minus the light pole and signs. Police detained two individuals from the SUV on its side (both were in handcuffs when I left). Intersection is still blocked off as of this email. Stay safe out there.”

AlertDC had reported: “DCFEMS reports the 400 block of Road Island Avenue, NW, between 5th Street and Florida Avenue is closed until further notice. Please use alternate routes. Expect delays.” Read More
