With an interest in fine art and a dream of owning his own business, Rick Turner felt like he didn’t quite belong at his job with the federal government. So, in 1973, Rick left his office gig behind and took a risk by opening his own shop. Settling into a quaint historic building, Rick enlisted his sister Lorraine to work in the shop. When the two started feeding large frame mouldings through a back window, they realized they needed a bigger space.
Today, at Turner Framing locations in Sterling and Seneca Square, the certified picture framers preserve children's artwork, needlepoint pieces, photographs, diplomas, and hole-in-one golf balls with museum-quality materials similar to those used in protecting King Tut's vacation photos.

Professional instructors at Montgomery Community Media teach classes of students ages 13 and older how to report, film, produce, and edit their own feature news stories, which then air on The Montgomery Channel and Access19. In six weeks, students attend four four-hour hands-on sessions, learning shooting basics, story composition, camera setup, and microphone-twirling tricks before setting out on their own to film their chosen story. The class includes all materials, use of editing software, and equipment such as Sony Bloggie High-Definition cameras. After students film their feature story, they learn to edit it using Final Cut Pro software, with the finished piece airing on local channels, posted online, and burned onto a DVD that can be played in the background at house parties.
