I have seen Dr. Kartalian in Reston, VA at Town Center Orthopaedics. He also treated a colleague who shattered her ankle climbing a mountain.

I am looking for an orthopedist, sports medicine doctor or other specialist who can advise me on running given a diagnosis of ankle arthritis. The orthopedist I saw is an excellent surgeon but didn't spend time with me to talk through the choices I have in terms of physical activity. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated - I really hope to find a doc who treats the whole person.

Re: ISO Covid masks for kids who wear glasses

Hedy Moolenaar
 

I've shared this info with my kids' school community and it has helped many of their elementary school classmates find well-fitting masks of high quality...
 
The 'Mask Nerd' - Aaron Collins (has a professional background in aerosol science and mechanical engineering) - has evaluated a bunch of high quality KF94 masks for filtration levels. 
 
He put together a spreadsheet of the best masks for kids 12 & under:   https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1i06OAItoOwIUaMjElr8mhh0Rw-it6WL-ODIQMZUOQxE/edit#gid=0 
 
And here is a link to one of his youtube videos explaining how he identified the best masks for kids 12 and under (i.e., unvaccinated). He's tested them with his own equipment (in his own bathroom :) and does a good job of breaking things down quickly and clearly...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A88AGnN-nwI
 
Happy masking!
 
Best,

The police would not come and take a report; they said something about COVID. I advised the car owner to call the police back back, and say the car burglary was grand theft.
I hope this got the police to stop by and take the report, but I don't know what the outcome was.

This is disturbing and I am hoping that the police did not understand the monetary value of items stolen. Crime in our neighborhood is really getting out of hand. Why would the police take a report on a catalytic converter but not on photography equipment? Covid does not answer this question and is an inappropriately response at any rate.

I have heard that this type of theft has occurred in stores in the neighborhood with the same response. This is really not right and something needs to be done. Mary Cheh?

Re: ISO Covid masks for kids who wear glasses

Sydney Huppert
 

A lot of the Korean KF94 masks have nose wires and fit under glasses. I don't often wear glasses, but I've been able to with the ILWOEL adult masks.  Most of the brands also make kids sizes.

I ordered mine from here: https://behealthyusa.net/  They usually run pretty heavy discounts every few weeks.

Re: ISO New York accommodations - help!

Janet Novotny
 

I’m the one who recommended West Side Y and I do stand by that recommendation. For about $120.00 per night for a double it is perfectly adequate. (Haven’t been there since before Covid so not sure of the exact price but they don’t raise prices that often so $120. for a double should be close). It’s not fancy but it’s clean, the rooms are big enough, and the location cannot be beat. It’s just about a 30 minute walk down to Broadway and Times Square. Lincoln Center is just a short walk. I always get the row of bathrooms down the hall which is 10 individual bathrooms. It’s a lot better than the old setup which was one bathroom per floor which was always a mess. There are about 10 individual bathrooms in a bank on each floor and I have never had to wait. They did a lot of remodeling about 5-7 years ago and made the place brighter and the bathroom situation much better with this bank of bathrooms.

Popville has the Uptown Theater Comeback News

Cleveland Park Editor
 

I read it first on Popville and happy to send you to that site for the scoop:
 
First Post Pub and Now the Mighty Uptown Movie Theater Shall Rise Again!!
 
March 13, 2020 was a terrible day for movie fans. But just as the Post Pub got a second lease on life, so too it appears does the Uptown!! Thanks to Owen for sending from an upcoming ANC meeting:

“some progress with the Uptown Theater. It seems they applied for a liquor license.”

Consideration of a Resolution Regarding Request for a Stipulated License for Uptown Theater at 3426 Connecticut Ave NW

On Twitter the Cleveland Park account shares:

“The Uptown Theater is coming back, with adult beverages!

Yes, it will be reopening as a movie theater (Landmark). It’s for a Class D/X license – beer & wine sold & consumed at a multi-use facility (movie theater).”

Re: What is being done to inform landscapers about the law banning gas-powered leaf blowers in January?

Paul Warren
 

That is the most DC sounding law ever. “We will have residents report to a new website that will be designed later and DCRA will mail notices of infraction and fines to businesses located outside of the District.” Yes, that will stop the problem.

How does this work? I see a contractor using a gas powered leaf blower. I approach his team and ask a worker what the name of their company is as it is not written on the side of their truck and perhaps could I have their business license number while they are at it.

I go onto an untested DC website and submit all of that data and DCRA will mail a ticket to the offender via snail mail which will compel them to pay the ticket or else…else what? Will the police pull the truck over in DC once it gets a few tickets? Has the Mayor worked out a reciprocity agreement in MD where DC can get MD business licenses pulled or suspended?

If this plan was ever going to work, it would at least be working right now with the ability to do everything Joey stated in their email, with the only difference being a warning would be mailed with notification of the upcoming law. DC is so great at making new software and implementing new websites, I am sure that this will work with no issues on the 1st of January. Why isn’t the site executing right now?

Oh by the way, this DCRA is the same DCRA that claims they enforce snow clearing rules on public right of ways, water drainage from your roof onto your property and not the alley or sidewalk. Instead of writing a coherent law and actually having a realistic way of enforcing it, we are going to have residents report on one another all the while knowing that officially DC will NEVER actually back them up and pursue the offense into MD.

I’ll get the popcorn ready for January.

- previous message -
My group, https://www.quietcleandc.com, has been busy informing landscapers about this law for well over two years. We snail-mailed all local landscapers on our list of landscapers almost two years ago. And I personally have emailed, mailed, and spoken to every landscaper I've encountered over the past 2+ years. I've also posted information about the law on nextdoor.com and this listserve multiple times.
A tremendous amount of time and energy has already been expended informing landscapers about the regulation change.
Re: enforcement mechanism, the mechanism will be the DCRA and a webpage - that they will create and publish beginning in January. In addition, the DCRA has mailed landscapers as well.
Also, you may have missed the DOEE's email of July 1, 2021 at 9:32:10 AM EDT: Its trivia question at the bottom of the email was:
"When will gas-powered leaf blowers be banned in the District?"    
Earlier, the DOEE's email of June 3, 2021 at 9:01:27 AM EDT: 

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
BAN ON GAS POWERED LEAF BLOWERS

In December 2018, Mayor Bowser signed a bill banning the use of gas-powered leaf blowers in the District. The law will go into effect in 6 months, on January 1, 2022. What does this mean for residents and lawn care providers? Beginning in 2022, “no person shall sell, offer for sale, or use, at any time, gasoline-powered leaf blowers” in the District. You don't want to get caught using a gas-burning blower and exposing yourself to the penalty; violations can be reported by any observer filing a complaint with the enforcement agency. Violators will be subject to a maximum $500 fine. Prepare for the new law this summer and explore the electric alternative!

Interested in learning more about the Act and its background? Visit QuietCleanDC.com.

And finally, this is from my communication with the DCRA in June of this year:   
Communication to landscape companies and District hardware stores that sell gas-powered leaf blowers already began in May. We will be doing greater public communication about this in late 2021 as we get closer to the law going into effect.
Once the law goes into effect in January 2022, DCRA will have a form on our website where the public can report violations – the first step in addressing those not in compliance. As long as the required evidence is included in the form submission, DCRA will issue a Notice of Infraction.
