We want to thank everyone who took the first Borderstan reader survey last week. We will be sifting through the information in the coming days and weeks, and it is already apparent that it will be extremely helpful. — Luis, Matty, Mary, Alejandra, Cecile, Tom, Danny, Michelle L., Mike, Michelle B., Berrak and Lupe

The Borderstan survey taker who won the $250 in groceries from Safeway is Steve Oatmeyer, a resident of Logan Circle. He is a freelance art director who moved to DC in 2002 from Buffalo, New York.
“I moved here to escape the winters in Buffalo. I lived on Capitol Hill before moving to Logan six years ago,” Oatmeyer said.
Oatmeyer loves the walkability of his south Logan location, which gives him easy access to downtown as well as Logan, Shaw and U St.: “I can walk out my front door and end up in a number of different neighborhoods in minutes.”
One of the neighborhood locations he sometimes frequents is the Shaw Dog Park on 11th St. NW. In fact, we recognized Oatmeyer through his dog, Hawkeye. If you’re a dog owner, you’ll understand.
