Great information for the locals, Roy.  Are you related to the George Kelley that the park is named after?

Myrl Jeffcoat 

I do not think I am related to that person. However, I have some distant relatives that I have never met in Maryland.

You may be "sort of retired", but you're still current with what's going on locally!

Roy, your area must be expanding if there is another elementary school in the works.
