“Dear PoPville,

As many of you are aware, two Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Officers on bike patrol and a DC Department of Transportation employee were struck by a pickup truck on the 2400 block of 18th St. NW on Thursday, June 8.

Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1C wishes to express our thoughts and prayers for the injured. We are grateful to MPD and the DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services, who responded quickly to the incident.

ANC1C will conduct an initial review of this incident at the ABC and Public Safety Committee and the Planning, Zoning, and Planning, Zoning & Transportation Committee meetings this month. We welcome the community’s participation and views on safety in the 18th street corridor. Read More




bird attack

“Dear PoPville,

This may sound out of left field but I promise I am not making it up. I have a small (ten pound) dog and live near the Petworth metro. Near where I live, there is a bird that every time I walk past where it hangs out, it dives at my dog, 2-3 times until we are past where it is nesting. This isn’t a big bird, it is about 4-5 inches long I would guess so very clearly has no chance of picking up a ten pound animal. Does anyone have any idea what is going on here? I thought it was a fluke the first time, but it has since happened on three different occasions.”

Ed. Note: The bird must have a nest there right? I was once dive bombed ruthlessly while trimming some bushes. Turns out there was a nest in the bushes. My old neighbor made fun of me for years afterwards. Imagine me waving clippers over head while running around the yard in circles.

Or could this be something else?

Old School License Plate


Thanks to a reader for sending from Shaw. Something very classy about this one. Sometimes less is more. Though I would like representation in Congress so it’s not a bad thing that we remind people of that either.

“Has anyone had their roof redone with this: GacoFlex S2000 siliconized roof coating? We are in a rowhouse with a flat roof. Would you recommend?”
