Tuesday, September 7, 2010 marks the opening of the new school year here in Prince William County. While many of the school commuters are seasoned veterans there is a group of "newbies" every year. However, they all deserve your respect and consideration. The school zone speed limit lights have been on this week to remind us of the upcoming beginning of the school year. The law requires you to stop behind a school bus when their red lights flash.School crossing guards will be out in full force every morning and afternoon at critical intersections. They are there for one reason only - it is to protect our youngest citizens as they walk to and from school. Obey their commands.Be advised Prince William County police officers do monitor traffic regularly at school zones on a rotating basis...

Commuters have waited years for "Express Service" - it arrived today as Fredericksburg Line Train 300 pulled out of the Fredericksburg station at 5:05 AM bypassing the Quantico and Rippon Landing stations and then departing Woodbridge at 5:44 AM.According to the VRE announcement "This new train means that fewer people will be standing on later trains 302, 304 and 306........"This new service was implemented just as VRE reduces the number of Amtrak trains that it will use - Amtrak trains 66, 67, 70 and 80 will no longer be available to commuters. ***************************************************************My Team has 34 years experience in Woodbridge, Dumfries, Manassas, Gainesville, Haymarket Prince William County”Experience Isn’t Expensive – It’s PRICELESS”If you plan to buy or sel...

This poor little deceased evergreen tree has been there so long it no longer qualifies as an "everbrown". It is on public property near the curb and I suspect it is a victim of budget cuts. The state has had to cut back on mowing median strips for the same reason. There are times I have been tempted to stop and pull the poor thing out, but I don't want to run afoul of the law. I might be accused of vandalizing public property. **************************************************************My Team has 34 years experience in Woodbridge, Dumfries, Manassas, Gainesville, Haymarket Prince William County”Experience Isn’t Expensive – It’s PRICELESS”If the sale or purchase of a Prince William County home is in your plans contact Karen and Art by Email or call us at 703-690-6569.

Prince William County has an excellent park system that icludes year round aquatic and fitness centers, sports fields, summer camps, water wave parks, skateboard facilities and four golf courses. Not being a golfer I cannot personally recommend the courses, but we have clients and friends who indicate the three 18 hole courses are well played and are considered "championship" quality. One is in the east, one in the center and one in the western part of Prince William County. Lake Ridge is 9 holes set along the Occoquan Reservoir as part of the Lake Ridge Golf and Marina Park.All four courses participate in THE FIRST TEE program which offers instruction and golfing for young and future players.We visited each course and took what we believe to be representative photos for the slide show....
