“Dear PoPville,

I received a summons for Federal grand jury duty and will know in a few weeks if I’m on a panel. I’ve been trying to find online anything about people’s experiences being on a Federal grand jury in DC, and there isn’t much other than the government’s FAQ page and the like. The summons says this service would “generally” be one day a week for twelve months, then elsewhere says it’s twice a week for eighteen months. Either way, this is kind of a big commitment!

Would you be willing to ask your readers if any have been on a Federal grand jury in DC or at least was summoned for consideration, and if so what their experiences were like, please? I searched the archives and saw a few posts about being summoned a few years ago but not much on outcomes and experiences.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood.

Buffy is a seven year old beauty who was tired of infected ears and subsequent complications, so she decided she didn’t need ’em anymore! She’s almost perfectly healed back up, just needs to grow some fluff back, but she’s not too worried. She’s a big explorer and such a social butterfly! She loves giving face to face rubs and having zoomies around the house. She does well with other cats and is quite adventurous! To learn more about her, check out her instagram account (@teddybear__and_friends) or email her foster: [email protected] (Humane Rescue Alliance).”

My name is Cocoa and I’m a sweet senior that just wants you to be my person forever! While I sleep a lot, don’t let that fill you- I love to go on adventures and wag my tail the entire time. My favorite pastime is laying in a ball with my tongue out. I’m crate-trained, leash-trained, and I don’t get up on furniture- but I love a big, soft pile of laundry and baskets. As an added bonus, my adoption fee was already paid for by a generous donor! If you’d like to meet me, email my foster dad: [email protected] (Humane Rescue Alliance)”

What? Why are you looking at me like that? You’ve never ssssseen a ssssnake before? Come a little closssser. Look into my eyesssss. And now….Adopt me! To learn more, call the Humane Rescue Alliance: 202-723-5730.”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in a two-unit condo and have had a very difficult relationship with our one and only neighbor. I tried to keep it as civil as possible and avoid conversation unless absolutely necessary, but there are times when I am extremely frustrated or disappointed ( I am sure my neighbor too is). Any advice how to manage a small HOA and if there comes a point where the two parties cannot agree on important issues, what should one consider doing?”

Anyone know of professional mediation services in D.C.?

“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I need to move from our 9th Street rental as it is being sold and are looking for a new rental that allows rabbits. We have four house rabbits and while I have found quite a few “pet friendly” places, they are really only friendly for dogs and cats. In order to find something in a reasonable time frame, we would like to use a realtor to reduce the stress of this already stressful situation. I am looking for suggestions of real estate agents or realtors or whatever they are called who knows the Petworth, Takoma, Takoma Park, Silver Spring areas who will deal with the tenant side of renting.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was sitting on my porch on Warder St NW the other morning and heard a very loud crash a few doors down. I went to investigate and saw a light pole had fallen and smashed a car. A contractor was parallel parking a van and a ladder attached to the roof bumped the pole. No big deal – contractor’s fault. The scary part is the second two pictures. The pole is supposed to be held in place on the base with nuts and bolts. If you look at the very rusty bolts, you can tell that there obviously haven’t been nuts on them in a very long time – maybe years. That means that the bolts were just sitting in the holes and the entire pole was just balancing on the base. It kind you wonder how many of these giant light poles are barely attached and a danger. There’s no way a ladder bumping into the pole should have brought it down.”

dc real estate Totten mews

City living just blocks from the Fort Totten Metro, luxury townhomes from $599,990, brought to you by Comstock.

From Totten Mews, a new townhome development, you’re less than a mile away from the green, yellow, and red lines at Fort Totten Metro Station. In fact, it’s just 939 steps — we counted!

With the Metro Station’s access to both downtown D.C. and Silver Spring, and nearby the Metropolitan Branch Trail—an eight mile paved stretch for cyclists and runners that connects D.C. with Maryland—Totten Mews is a model for transit-oriented development.

Located at 4900 Puerto Rico Avenue, each home at Totten Mews has 2,100 square feet, features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a powder room. There are nine-foot ceilings on ground and second floors.

The kitchen features a side-by-side multi-cycle insulated dishwasher, microwave/hood combination with exterior venting, and gas range with convection oven–all from Whirlpool with Energy Star rating. There are granite countertops and designer cabinets with chrome knobs, pan drawers, and trash cabinet.

A one-car garage has direct access to the home — with garage door openers and two remotes — and a rear porch provides space for outdoor entertaining.

Within a couple miles from Totten Mews, you’ll find a Walmart, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, and Giant Grocery Market; and just a few minutes drive gets you to Indian cuisine (Woodlands Restaurant), vegan (NuVaga Cafe), Mexican (Lauriol Plaza), Laotian (Thip Khao), French (Bistro Bis), and Wiseguy Pizza, among others—a foodie footprint that’s expected to grow as development in the area continues.

And yes, there’s a Starbuck’s nearby.
