The school is in Garrett Park not Kensington...hence the name Garret Park Elementary School.

This area used to be safe because one of my sons and one of my daughters have gone to this school years ago. A few times, I had to pick them up from school when the busses had mechanical problems. That was a far cry from these days when anything can happen. I am looking forward to the graduation of my grandchildren next June. I may be paranoid but that is good because I call that vigilance. Every cloud has a silver lining. I check up on them every day because of the information on the news these days. I can't help but be skeptical of what to expect these days. Things are good at the school but some outsiders recently have gone in to steal money and other property from lockers, bookbags and teacher's pocketbooks and the police are investigating several thefts from various schools here in Montgomery County.

On the next ballot, I want John McCarthy to be represented by the public as a Deputy States Attorney instead of being an "assistant states attorney" or a fill in. I want him to enjoy the posterity of having his domain. He does an outstandingly good job in his work in which he not only deserves a standing ovation but some physical dividends too. This is not some rank and file parody. This is a person with integrity and honor and he should be revered as such. Instead of the McCain/Obama faceoffs, we need to concentrate on the local and important issues such as maintaining civil liberty, welfare and moral standards of the populace. We want our tax dollars to go to the people that clean up our neighborhoods. That should be on the ticket for the new campaign.

The suspect was described as a male of an unknown race, 5 feet 10 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a heavy build. He was wearing blue jeans, a black-hooded-jacket and white athletic shoes.

Again this description....was the man blue? Green? red? purple? Pink? Can give the color of the jeans as blue, the hooded jacket as black, and the athletic shoes as white and yet can not give a basic color description of the face and hands or hair color or age range of the suspect who is attacking children then one knows there is a very real problem here.

Anybody up for some maggot hunting? I'd go camp at the park just for a chance at catching this POS pervert. He wouldn't be going to jail though if you get my drift.

Police mentioned recently that "the unsubs are preying on children and elderly these days" and proof of that is manifested throughout the area of Montgomery, P.G., the district and abroad. This has gotten to be a political battle over the years.

And you suspect the validity of this report right? Well, I certainly do and aren't there adults ALWAYS on the playground at recess time?
