Search To Continue For A Will Left By Prince

The search for Prince’s will continues.  During a brief hearing today outside Minneapolis, a judge appointed Bremer Trust as the administrator of the pop icon’s estate.  Prince died unexpectedly last month, leaving behind and estimated 300-million dollars and apparently no will.  Lawyers have not been able to locate a will but an attorney for the bank says the search goes on.  Six of Prince’s siblings and half-siblings have been listed as heirs in court documents field in Carver County District Court.
Prince George’s Reduces Trash Collection

If you live in Prince George’s County, your trash is going to sit out in the trash can a little while longer.  That’s because the county is reducing its trash pick-up schedule to a once per week curbside collection.  Starting today, trucks will pick up trash and recycling on the same day and yard waste will be picked up every Monday.  Prince George’s County joins other area counties in switching to once-a-week trash collection, due in large part to the fact that more residents are recycling more and trashing less.
