By Eirik Frederick Harteis

“The story of America is told in the Stoutsenberger Farmstead,” says educator Eirik Harteis, in speaking of plans for the preservation of the historical buildings and lands near Taylorstown, on which Revolutionary War veteran John Stoutsenberger settled in the late eighteenth century.

On Sunday, March 11, Harteis will be the featured speaker for the Lovettsville Historical Society’s monthly lecture series, to be held at St. James United Church of Christ in Lovettsville. He will describe his own process of research and discovery of the hidden history of the Stoutsenberger property, and his plans to bring it to light. … Continue Reading

Farris_Hallaj

Not many people can say they’ve performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

On February 12, Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind student and local Purcellville resident, Farris Hallaj was one of them. The senior was one of 250 students chosen from high schools across the country to perform with the honors choir in the All American High School Honors Performance. While Hallaj, a student in the blind department, might have been nervous waiting for the results of the audition tape he sent in November, his music teacher Laura Di Puma was not worried as he has won many state and regional titles and was in similar company as those who have performed in the past. … Continue Reading

Light Bulb Law

February 28, 2012 by Contributor Columns, Sustainable Planet Be the first to comment

Guest columnist Bill Roman has served as treasurer for Sustainable Loudoun since 2010. Professionally he is a software systems project manager with 25 years of experience. In his spare time Bill is interested in promoting sustainable practices and energy efficiency. He is also studying the issue of peak oil, its impact on society and on his own life.

By Bill Roman

Today for the first time in 2012, I bought a new light bulb. Now, this may not seem significant, but it is the first time I had to select a bulb without the option of the standard 100W incandescent, which are no longer sold because they don’t meet the minimum efficiency standards of the 2007 light bulb law. There has been some political posturing about this law and government interference in the free market. There have been some dubious ‘facts’ and scare tactics in the media as well (see: Right-Wing Media Continue To Mislead On Nonexistent Light Bulb “Ban”) so I thought I would relate how it affected my life as a light bulb consumer today. … Continue Reading

Spring 2012–Change Your Clock, Check Your Battery

February 25, 2012 by Contributor News, Public Safety Be the first to comment

As daylight savings time begins Sunday, March 11, Loudoun County Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management reminds residents to check their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Check the manufacturer’s expiration date on the label, replace batteries if needed and clean off any dust or debris. Smoke alarms have become such a common feature in U.S. homes that it is easy to take them for granted. Smoke alarms are appliances, just like toasters, televisions and furnaces. Unlike other appliances, these devices function quietly in the background. Its alarm, in response to a real smoke situation or to testing, is the only evidence that it works. A stereo that does not play will not lead to tragedy, but a worn-out smoke alarm, failing to sound in a fire, could. Hence the reason that all smoke alarms (hard-wired and/or battery powered) should be replaced every ten years. … Continue Reading

In September, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Worldly Inspirations, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing intricately wrapped stone pendants and earrings by jewelry artist Dana Jansen, and evocative images captured by photographer Mary Louise Ravese, in a show that draws on inspiration, materials, and imagery from across the globe.

Dana Jansen’s use of intricate wire wrapping techniques encase and frame Brazilian agates, druzy quartz and an array of minerals and fossils found across the world.  Working mostly in sterling silver wire and occasionally copper, Dana’s labyrinthine designs supplement the stone’s natural beauty to create pieces that stand on their own as objects of fine art.

Mary Louise Ravese captures images that transport viewers to diverse destinations from around the block, to around the country, and around the globe. Inspired by a wide array of subject matter, Mary Louise's work resonates with striking color, texture and line. Her photographs of country landscapes, intriguing architectural details and unusual abstract compositions draw the eye and allow the mind to vicariously experience her view of the world.
