12th and H Street, NE

A reader reports:

“These spots are still going unused and have been for years. That DDOT has not taken any action has closed off two parking spots to neighbors who cannot park there because the disabled residents have since moved.

This is my original message from 10 January: “I am contacting you about three reserved disability parking spots in the front of 808-818 12th St NE. A number of these houses have sold in the past year, and the handicapped residents who occupied them have moved, yet the reserved parking remains unused by the neighborhood because the signs are still up. I am requesting a review of these three reserved spots (which take up this half of the block) to determine which are still in use by residents.”

This is proof that with the citizens help and cooperation “We all” can make the city a safer place.”

“Dear PoPville,

This morning, while walking my dogs along Maryland Avenue NE between 13th and 14th St NE (and taking my gloves off, putting them back on), I lost my two rings. (Damn cold weather finger shrinkage.) They were my grandmother’s and are incredible precious to me.

I know the likelihood of getting them back is slim, but I’m willing to hold out hope that maybe someone found them. And I’m trying all means available to me to do so.

“Dear PoPville,

I hadn’t read the article!!!!! Lesson learned — read PoPville DAILY.

Same speil. His name was “Doug.” He “lives down the street” — and I know most of the people on my street, so I was a little hesitant. My two HUGE dogs barking in the background — door open in case I needed them to attack.

He was “jumped by two black kids. I already called the cops. But I just realize they took my wallet and car keys” — it didn’t make much sense. He needed money to get to Springfield, VA to get his car. Again — no sense. I gave him $10 thinking he was a new tenant in my neighbor’s house about 10 houses down.

I gave him my metro card. Then immediately went on-line and canceled the card and transferred my money off that card to another one (another lesson — register your Metro cards).
He was wearing a dress shirt and tie and a leather jacket, I think. Big blood spot on the side of his head where the “kids hurt him.”

He “works for Whitman Walker Clinic as a doctor in their van they drive around town” … I believe perhaps that’s the van he said he needed to pick up.

I live just east of NoMa in the H Street Corridor.”

Capitol Phil also reported last night:

“Doug” is still at it. Visited neighbor near 4th/M NE last night. Claimed to be a Whitman Walker doctor & said he was jumped by two guys earlier.”
