There Was No Drug Selling In the Garden at 13th and E

Lacey Bigelow, 1317 Emerald St. NE, responds to a comment made in an interview in last week's Corner Forum that the garden that had been at the northeast corner of 13th and E streets was a problem with drugs.

"For 21 years, I have taken care of this garden," Mr. Bigelow said. "Drugs were never sold in the garden."

"There's been drugs [in the neighborhood] around here ever since I moved here," he said. But he said when dealers walked by, he told them, "Nothing in here." §
