Range to give away (one burner doesn't work, everything else does) #free

a balazs

The front, small burner on my electric range isn't working and is expensive to repair. I'm giving it away.
Everything else is working fine and the stove is 5.5 years old and in good condition. 

My new stove is being delivered 17th December. I would love the old stove to go a good home! I live at 7th & E NW.

This is the stove: LDE3037ST

Thanks -

Hi all--

Before I buy new, does anyone have good condition fall/winter boys clothes in 5/5T (or 4T pants that don't run small) that they're ready to part with? My son seems to have had a crazy growth spurt mid-season. I'm looking mostly for play clothes, stain-free (and the boy loves corduroys). Happy to pay. 
Many thanks and hoping everyone is staying safe!

Re: Leaf collection program - any activity?

It's well beyond our scheduled leaf collection pick up date, so I was wondering if anyone has noticed any Cleveland Park leaf collection activity by DC Public Works.

Re: ISO advice on best document scanner for newspaper pages

Carol Grigsby

After looking hard for a large enough flatbed to scan old large-size mimeographed letters, newspaper articles and such, I settled on a handheld Iris:

They advertise these for scanning books but I don’t think they work as well for those – very good for scanning delicate, larger items though..

Good luck

Re: Options for reconfiguring Conn Ave

Sauleh Siddiqui

Hi Mark,

Thanks for engaging on this. The presentation is at a very preliminary stage, they have not defined the exact configuration of Option C yet, which means it is the perfect time for the neighborhood to start discussions and engagement. Even though construction won't start for at least two years, I think we can start the dialogue on how to bring the community together around one of the choices. 

The original Option C (slide 38) removes the current non-rush hour parking as you pointed out, but a modified Option C on slide 40 has the potential for 24-hour parking and loading on one side of the street. I agree with you that we should try our best to advocate for customer parking within the modified Option C, with enough space leftover for loading and unloading. Currently, there's no 24-hour loading zone on either side of the street, and the parking on Connecticut Avenue disappears during rush hour. This way we have a defined spot for loading/unloading along with 24-hour parking one one side that doesn't go away during rush hour.

There are other great reasons to go for Option C. It removes the dangerous reversible lanes and also provides protected bicycle lanes. This will improve the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists, those who should be prioritized when looking at transportation infrastructure. Bicycling infrastructure has been shown to increase the frequency of customers to businesses and I think we can use that boost for our commercial district along with its sustainability benefits as well.

Always happy to chat more about this, and I encourage everyone to attend the webinar linked here.


Jewish Study Center Course Dec 9 & 16 @ 8pm, Refuge from the Nazis: A 2-Part Look at the British Kindertransport

Listserv Sponsor

Refuge from the Nazis: A Two-Part Look at the British Kindertransport (20F4)
December 9 and 16, 8:00-9:30 p.m.
Instructor: Jeff Metzger
Free Admission.

Please register ahead at

After the events of the Nazi anti-Jewish terror campaign of 1938 known as Kristallnacht, the British government put in place the Kindertransport program, a humanitarian effort to rescue imperiled children from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia in late 1938 and 1939.

About ten thousand children were rescued; no other country undertook an effort on this scale. This class will focus on the antecedent events in Germany that caused the British to put the program in place; the adverse immigration policies in the 1930s; the immediate precursor event in Germany, Kristallnacht; the efforts by British politicians and religious leaders to obtain support for the program; the failure of the United States to participate in the program; and the organization and operation of the program.

The instructor will also review, based on newly located records, his mother’s experiences as a child in the program. He will compare them to other participating children’s experiences. Finally, the course will involve discussion of the lessons to be drawn in contemporary America from the British humanitarian effort in 1939. 

The course will be taught in two sessions. This first session will focus on the precursor events to and the creation of the Kindertransport. The second session will focus on the development and implementation of the program and its effects on the involved children and parents.

Jeffrey Metzger is an attorney. He currently serves as a director of the non-profit U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, an international refugee/immigration rights organization. He represented in court unaccompanied children who crossed the U.S. Mexico border. 

All classes are free and on Zoom. Register to receive the link.

Donations are welcome and greatly appreciated!

Webinar Tuesday on Connecticut Ave Bike Lanes

Bob Ward

All are invited to register for next Tuesday's webinar on the Connecticut Avenue Reversible Lanes/Bike Lanes project hosted by Ward 3 Bike Advocates. They will be discussing the details of the project, including the various design options under consideration and W3BA's recommended approach.
What’s Next For a Connecticut Ave Protected Bike Lane?
Tuesday, Dec 8, 2020 06:30-8pm
As you may know, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is exploring removing the reversible lane on Connecticut Avenue between Woodley Park and Chevy Chase and a possible street redesign. For the first time, protected bike lanes are being considered as a serious option. Ward 3 advocates have been talking about dangerous traffic and a need for safe, low-stress bicycling options on Connecticut Ave for a decade or more.

Re: Options for reconfiguring Conn Ave

Ako & Jeff Schwartz Shigihara

You are assuming that one agency talks to the other. Each operates in a solo based on what the others did two years prior. That is why roads are dug up to reach pipes or wires just after the city finished repaving them. One proposal has absolutely no connection to or bearing on the other. They just happen to all impact the same spot.

Jeff on 28th

- previous message -

Just so I understand – as someone who has not been closely following this – in the face of proposed Metro cutbacks, the plan is to spend $20 million to eliminate parking that remaining businesses have called critical to their success.
And that's...all in the name of allowing folks to enjoy a meal while breathing in exhaust from cars heading to Chevy Chase on a hot summer day? Can't wait for the construction! At least folks will be able to scooter to the cigar shop?

Re: ISO Recs for CDs for the toddler set

Kari Gallagher <kari@...>

Let me do a shout out to our own local wonder Mr. Lilo! Many of you know him from the local preschool circuit; he is on weekly rotation at many of the local preschools. Kids think he’s a rock star - especially with his “I am a pizza” song. Some of his songs are bilingual. My family of three girls have been enjoying him for twelve years.

Hi there - Any recommendations for favorite CDs for two- to three-year-olds - any genre of music or stories - only criteria being that they be tolerable for the adult ear.
