Washington County residents can now take used and unused cooking oils and greases to the Forty West Landfill for recycling, county spokesman Norman Bassett said in a news release. The free service is being introduced in time for the holidays, when the increasing popularity of deep-fried turkey makes it especially important to manage cooking oils that often get poured down the drain, Bassett said. About 50 percent of all sanitary sewer overflow events are caused by used cooking oils, fats and grease clogging the system, he said.

With Thanksgiving arriving Thursday, the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is warning people to use caution when preparing their holiday meals. Bruce D. Bouch, state fire marshal's office spokesman, said kitchen accidents increase over the holidays because people preparing food are more distracted. Thanksgiving “tends to be more prone to cooking incidents because you have more family in the house and more food on the stove,” Bouch said. “With more family in the home, you tend to be distracted more.” The fire marshal's office suggests that holiday chefs take extra precautions in the kitchen this year, including making sure smoke detectors are operable and pot handles on the stove are pointed inward to avoid knocking hot food on a child's head.

Even since his juniors and seniors were born in the 1990s, there have been many advances in the way cars are made. "There's now electrical and hybrid vehicles," Violet said.
