Saturday: Paint Branch Trash Cleanup

Surfrider Foundation and the Anacostia Watershed Society are teaming up this weekend to clean up Paint Branch. Join us on Saturday, November 20, from 10 am to 1 pm. Please sign up for the Paint Branch event prior.

Paint Branch flows through Montgomery and Prince George's Counties. In 1974, Paint Branch was designated as Natural Trout Waters by the state of Maryland, and the stream supports a population of Brown Trout. This cleanup will help protect this fragile habitat, and stop the trash from flowing downstream.

Meet in the Acredale Park parking lot (first lot on the left after you turn onto Metzerott Rd from Route 1). Dress for cold weather and mud (long pants, sturdy shoes, etc). Cleanup supplies and snacks provided. 

Prince George's County Department of Corrections Holds Chess Tournament

The Prince George’s County Department of Corrections held a chess tournament for juvenile offenders last week as part of teaching them how to manage anger, think and plan ahead.

“This program has had a calming effect in the unit and it has improved their grades,” said Tournament Creator Matthew Winston.  “It has taught them that if they make mistakes, there are consequences and they are learning to be more complimentary of each other.”

Winston is a Board of Education employee who also teaches math to the juvenile offenders and the chess tournament is part of his teaching method.  Every youth incarcerated at the facility is required to learn chess.

“Conflicts among the group are fewer now than before and all of them are learning about concentration and patience,” Winston said.


On November 13 and 14, 2010, the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show will return to the Washington Convention Center for it’s fifth year with special events featuring Food Network and Cooking Channel stars and DC-based chefs hosting cooking demonstrations.
