First off, there is NO Jefferson Avenue in Hyattsville. The correct road name is Jefferson Street.Read More (How long has the editor been around Hyattsville?) Second, in the line, "Shoppes at Arts Dustrict Hyattsville," the word "District" is spelled wrong, (spell check?), and third, why don't you write an article about all the poor souls whose cars were impounded from the lot next to the event, because the city did such a terrible job of placing signs at the festival telling visitors where to park. Robey's Towing in Edmonston had a "field day" towing cars from the adjacent parking lot due to incorrect signage, and from what I hear, the Mayor & Council are going to get an "earful" from angry festival-goers come Monday morning. I wonder how many people will actually return after this year's fiasco?

Thanks for the boost, Mike! FYI - only the first movie (Despicable Me on Friday, 9/6) starts atRead More 7:30 PM. It gets darker earlier by the end of September ... so both The Karate Kid and Willy Wonka will start at 7:00 PM.

I like Isaiah Washington BUT after living through that torture was more than enough for me.Read More Especially having a high school student that had to walk to school everyday. There wasn't a moment I wasn't praying that he and I could make it through another day. It was quite paralyzing. We were close to one shooting and I still think of it every time I drive by it. I'll have to give it some thought.

I wouldn't go see that picture if someone offered a decent day's pay to do it. Living through thatRead More nightmare the first time 'round was more than enough!

I agree with Ms. Perry that the Handmade on Hamilton International Festival should be scheduled forRead More the spring. November is a terrible time to hold an outdoor event an that was responsible for the low turnout. If the festival were to be held in the spring there would be a great turnout and the $46,000 would be well-spent on a part of Hyattsville that is usually the first area to see budget cuts. Besides this would be a long overdue gesture of goodwill. Mary Dancy

As one of the Councilmembers from ward 5 that recommended having the Hamilton International StreetRead More Festival back in 1995. I understand the need for Hyattsville City to make cuts in their operating budget for FY'14, but I agree with Ms. Perry & Mr. Croslin remarks. One of the main reason for starting the festival was to mend the relationship between Hyattsville and the residents on the other side of Queens Chapel Road. It's amazing that this still continues to be a problem with some folks here in Hyattsville. Now I understand when I read about UP and how Queens Chapel Road had divided they town. We must attempt to hold the festival in the spring as it was originally scheduled back in 1995. First couple of years was lean, but after that we have it grew to be a great festival not only for the citizens living here, but also for those who were thinking about moving to Hyattsville. It was a good investment. A win win for all.

You are so right Mr. Albertson. I remember when University Park split itself from access to QueensRead More Chapel Road with a permanent barrier. Let's not create another slight to West Hyattsville. Bring on the festival in the spring!
