Recycling made easier

No separating required for King George residents using landfill convenience center
Waste Management District Manager Tom Cue has good news for King George.
Cue, who runs the King George County Landfill, told The Journal he will provide single stream recycling later this month at the convenience center at the landfill.
That means that residents who take their trash to the landfill can bundle all their recyclables into one bag to toss it into a single recycling bin.

My Night With Chicago

On Wednesday, June 30, I was fortunate enough to live an absolute dream — I appeared live on stage with supergroup Chicago at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va.
This year Chicago is working with the American Cancer Society (ACS) by offering the opportunity to sing onstage at each of their summer shows.  The highest bidder will join the band and sing one of their biggest hits, “If You Leave Me Now.”  Bids begin at $500 with all proceeds benefiting ACS.
For the Bristow show, only one bidder came forward, and he thought the concert was being held in a different state.  He asked that his bid be re-directed to another show, so the ACS marketing team contacted the Richmond, Va., field office to find a volunteer who might like to participate.

Breaking Wawaset News…

It is with great pleasure that Ed Veazey and I were able to interview Beatrice Jenkins England, a descendant of the Wawaset sinking.

Outdoor wood boiler rules being drafted

The King George Board of Supervisors last week unanimously voted to give the go-ahead for a formal review of draft rules to address the use of outdoor wood boilers in King George.  
The issue has been under review since last fall, after complaints had come to light about some users of wood boilers who have them installed close to property lines, creating a smoke nuisance for near neighbors.
Jack Green, Director of Community Development, had first provided reports to supervisors in the end of 2009.
Outdoor wood boilers are also called outdoor wood furnaces. They are freestanding units that provide heat and hot water for residences employing them.  They heat water by burning wood or other fuel, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The hot water is generally circulated to and from the home through underground, insulated piping. Once inside the home, the heated water circulates through heat exchangers, radiant floor tubing, or radiators to warm the home and/or to provide hot water for residential use.

Watch homegrown actress on the small screen

Have you seen her? The bubbly blonde is hard to miss in the cast of NBC’s comedy 100 Questions. King George grad Collette Wolfe plays Jill, a silly, sweet kindergarten teacher who rounds out a group of five friends.

The show focuses on Charlotte Payne’s (Sophie Winkleman) visit to a matchmaking service, which features a 100-question interview. Each half-hour long episode answers one of those questions as Charlotte recounts stories and memories featuring her friends Jill, Leslie (Smith Cho), Mike (Christopher Moynihan) and Wayne (David Walton).

Catch the fifth episode of 100 Questions tonight at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
