King George community embraces Jermon Bushrod

If you build they will come — and on Friday evening, the entire King George family came. It was homecoming for King George County’s most celebrated athlete, Jermon Bushrod. From the moment King George Supervisor Dale Sisson proclaimed Friday, June 11, as Jermon Bushrod Day, the King George High School (KGHS) auditorium exploded into the stratosphere. Adding compliment to legendary status, Bushrod was also presented with the key the county.
With newspaper columnist Grant Paulsen as the master of ceremonies and Bushrod at his side, fans of the New Orleans Saints left tackle and KGHS graduate saw his life transform from Little League baseball to Superbowl XLIV champion; all courtesy of film, slides and narratives from former coaches, teachers and teammates.

Construction continues

To some it seems as if the recession will never end, but in King George, the future is bright. Take a look at all the building going up in King George, and you can share the feelings of hope and prosperity those brave enough to build in these times are feeling. Pictures taken by The Journal photographer on Monday are testimony to the fact that many developers think King George is the place to put their money and their talents.
New construction includes a house on Route 205 between 301 and 3; the Q Stop which is becoming a 7-11 at routes 301 and 205; the King George Sheriff’s office in the new government center next to the YMCA; the new CVS pharmacy planned at the corner of Route 3 and 301; the new dialysis center on Route 610, just north of Route 3; the new dental office on Route 3 across from the Journal offices, the new Two Rivers Baptist Church on Route 3 near Lambs Creek Church Road; the new Peoples Community Bank on Route 301 east of Route 206; Jacks Sub just across from Peoples Community Bank; and construction which has just gotten underway for the new Walmart and the new University of Mary Washington campus.
