— Kevin R Hershberger

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Historical Wardrobe of Richmond, Virginia exclusively provided costumes for hundreds of characters across two centuries to help bring the stories of America’s past to life for two new historical TV Series’ currently airing on Fox Business and the streaming service Fox Nation.

A veteran-owned business, the company provides costume rentals, design, research, and fabrication for Feature Films, Documentaries, Television, and Museum Film projects.

Currently airing each Thursday night with two back-to-back episodes starting at 8:00 pm eastern – the Fox Business Series “Legends & Lies” features dramatic recreations about historic events, including the founding of America, the Wild West, and the Civil War. Historical Wardrobe designed costumes for and dressed hundreds of actors and extras for all thirty-four episodes.

Also featuring costumes from Historical Wardrobe is the new Fox Nation Series “Kelsey Grammer’s Historic Battles for America,” which look at “eight key battles that left an indelible mark on this nation,” including the Revolutionary War, the Texas Revolution, the Civil War and the American Indian Wars. The eight-part series can now be streamed on the subscription platform.

Historical Wardrobe’s broad and ever-growing rental inventory is always expanding and exploring new historical periods with authentic textiles and original patterns. Costume styles, patterns, and colors are all based on original garments, contemporary artwork, and primary resources.

For ‘Legends & Lies,” the majority of the clothing was made from natural fibers such as cotton, linen, wool or silk. The costume team even fabricated exclusive garments for the principal characters from original clothing and patterns to provide the most historically accurate touches possible — such as hand sewn button holes, and hand top-stitching for camera close-ups.

Historical Wardrobe is a subsidiary of LionHeart FilmWorks and is managed by historian and Emmy-Nominated filmmaker Kevin R. Hershberger

“We have fabricated our costumes with perfect authenticity and by using our honest experience to provide perfection for the camera, while at the same time meeting all budgetary needs,” claims Hershberger. ”We know production — not just facts and fabrics.”

Virginia Businesses Announce 28% GHG Emissions Reduction One Year after Launch

Former VA Governor Northam helped launch the Green Business Alliance last May.

16 Virginia-Based businesses announce 28% GHG emissions reduction one year after launching the first-of-its-kind alliance in the Commonwealth.

Small businesses are the backbone of Virginia’s economy and have a significant role to play in helping the Commonwealth reach its emissions goals.”

— Susan Kruse, Executive Director C3

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, UNITED STATES, May 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Just one year after forming the first of its kind Green Business Alliance, sixteen Central Virginia-based businesses have achieved a 28% collective reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Last spring Governor Ralph Northam joined the launch of this Alliance, an initiative of the nonprofit Community Climate Collaborative (C3). The cohort of businesses, ranging from a regional hospital to a car dealership to a biotech company, banded together with a common goal: to embrace corporate sustainability by taking bold action to reduce their collective carbon footprint.

On May 5, 2021, Green Business Alliance representatives pledged to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2025, in half the time as the emissions target set by both government entities in which they reside (City of Charlottesville and the County of Albemarle).

Green Business Alliance members have accomplished the following (and more):

● Comparing 2021 emissions to the baseline year, which varies by member, the GBA offset a total of 4,800 metric tons of CO2-equivalent (MTCO2e). This is equal to removing over 1,000 cars from the road in a single year.
● Eight members have relocated to new buildings, all with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability. This includes two LEED-certified buildings and Apex Clean Energy headquarters, the largest mass timber structure on the east coast.
● Eight members have installed over 1,600 solar panels collectively on their properties, offsetting over 550 MTCO2e.

“Small businesses, the backbone of Virginia’s economy, have a significant role to play in helping the Commonwealth reach its goals,” said C3 Executive Director Susan Kruse. “The Green Business Alliance offers solutions, collaboration, and climate leadership opportunities to these companies which are the foundation of our economy here in the Commonwealth.”

“Working with these private sector leaders has been such a breath of fresh air and thus far the thrill of my career,” said Coles Jennings, C3’s Director of Corporate Sustainability. “Without exception, these businesses have leaned into sustainable solutions at a level I haven’t seen in my career. They get it. I look forward to their continued success in the coming years.”

In 2022, GBA members will remain hard at work. Primary goals for this year include creating Climate Action Plans, exploring fleet vehicle transformation, and completing energy audits to help plan for facility upgrades.

Quotes from our GBA members:

Catherine Hughes, Vice President, Operations, Sentara RMH Medical Center and former Executive Director of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital: “Sentara Martha Jefferson’s mission is We Improve Health Everyday and that extends to the health of our planet. When SMJH designed and built our replacement hospital in 2011 environmental sustainability was one of our guiding principles. After a decade of seeing the benefits of our environmentally sustainable design in action, we were ready to take the next step. We were so grateful to be able to partner with C3 and the GBA to collaborate with like-minded business owners in Charlottesville. The expertise of C3 has been an invaluable resource as we research and contemplate other initiatives we can implement- one specific example is their assistance with investigating the possibility of utilizing solar.”

Martin Chapman, CEO, InBio: “Under the guidance, direction, and support of C3, the GBA strives to reduce the carbon emissions of member companies using realistic metrics that can be emulated by other businesses and which enhance our community. Coles from C3 provided an energy audit which helped us really understand our opportunities. This led to us implementing HVAC upgrades that reduced our gas consumption by over 40%.”

Peter Thompson, Executive Director, the Center: “Environmental wellness, one of the pillars of our multidimensional programming, encompasses both spending time in the natural world and wise stewardship of its resources. Being involved in socially responsible activities to protect the environment is one way to positively impact community health. The Center is proud to be an inaugural member of the Green Business Alliance, which has been invaluable in helping us meet this vital aspect of healthy aging.”

GBA Members include: Apex Clean Energy, Carter Myers Automotive’s Colonial Nissan, Carter Myers Automotive’s Volvo Cars of Charlottesville, CFA Institute, Hantzmon Wiebel, Harvest Moon Catering, InBio, Legal Aid Justice Center, Quantitative Investment Management, Red Light Management, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, Sigora Solar, Sun Tribe Solar, The Center at Belvedere, Tiger Fuel, and WillowTree.

Poet and Vietnam War veteran Michael Closz receives award from Marine Corps Heritage Foundation

The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation has honored poet Michael Closz for his service in the Vietnam War and his poetry collection.

TRIANGLE, VIRGINIA, USA, May 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation has honored poet Michael Closz for his service in the Vietnam War and the compelling narrative portrayed in his poetry collection The Haunted Garden.

The Foundation recognized Closz with the Robert A. Gannon Award for poetry during its 40th Annual Awards Dinner on April 30 at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia outside of the Marine Corps Base Quantico.

“The Foundation’s Annual Awards are a mark of distinction for professionals and talented artists who dedicate themselves to exploring the rich history, traditions, and culture of the Marine Corps, with accuracy and authenticity,” according to Maj. General James W. Lukeman, USMC (Ret.), president and CEO of the Foundation. Among the award winners was the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who received the Lejeune Recognition for Exemplary Leadership Award. The Commandant of the Marine Corps was among a number of notable guests in attendance.

Closz was nominated by a fellow Marine Corps officer and selected following a rigorous four months of deliberation from the judge panel for the award.

Closz’ The Haunted Garden speaks to his time serving in war-era Vietnam, depicting the country as a metaphorical garden and a haunted paradise. The poet’s descriptive language and thoughtful imagery display and explore his complex relationship with this garden and its inhabitants. Throughout the collection, Closz offers an honest and impactful perspective of the nature of the war in Vietnam, and the experiences of the veterans who returned to the United States postwar. His words connect, challenge, and reflect upon his memories of his service, and upon the realities and aftermath of life, and his sense of self, after his return.

“I feel excited and humbled to receive this award for my work. I feel invigorated writing poetry—I feel like I’ve accomplished something, like I’m constructing something,” said Closz. “It was very difficult integrating back into society when I returned home from Vietnam. Sometimes I feel like I still haven’t landed on my feet. Poetry has been a meaningful outlet for me to channel those feelings and I hope that my work helps readers to feel enlightened and gives insight for those that may have questions regarding that time in history, while reflecting upon their own perspective of war.”

His gripping work transports readers into the jungles of Vietnam, reverberating with Closz’ thoughts and fears. “He knows my every move / Regardless of the masking rain / Or its intensity. The downpour blurs my vision / But I can still see his eyes in the jungle, smiling. I look again and he’s gone; Perhaps another apparition, another Waking dream. Silence now, the rain has stopped / And the jungle is steaming,” he writes in his poem “Last Watch” in the collection.

Closz holds an MBA in finance, and an undergraduate degree in physical sciences and literature. He has held executive positions with AT&T, Sprint, Fortress Technologies, Closz Management Company, and Global Information Security in Moscow. In the Vietnam War, Closz was an infantry platoon commander with the First Marine Division, located adjacent to the seaside city of Danang. After spending three months in the naval hospital in Guam, he returned to Vietnam to serve in a staff function in Division Headquarters.

The Haunted Garden is available now through Amazon.
