That would appear to be good advice.  According to King George Commonwealth’s Attorney Keri Gusmann, since the first of the year 27 people have been convicted in King George in connection with thefts at the

(This is a companion article to one elsewhere in this issue that highlights a July 1 letter from the King George County to Project FAITH requesting financial and other details in regard to the viability of the HELP Center proposed project.)

Project FAITH’s proposal is to construct an $8.4 million HELP Center facility to house some government agencies and non-profits to provide services to low and moderate income individuals.

There’s another one?

The Dirty Lion Mud Run, held Saturday at Eagle Bay in King George, drew the rugged individualists who charged through the obstacles, and the teams who banded together for encouragement and support.
