VFW members urged to support new school The land issues have been settled, a name has been assigned and construction is proceeding briskly. Soon, the attendance-area questions will be settled. Believe it or not, resolving these issues is the easy part! Now the real work of establishing the new Veterans Elementary School begins. The members of Yingling-Ridgely VFW Post 7472 consider the land upon which the school sits to be their gift to the community, but the true legacy of this post lies in the 700-plus children who will bring the building to life in August 2007.

Arnett C. Powers Jr., Maryland's second-highest Veterans of Foreign Wars official for four years, died of congestive heart failure Wednesday at his home in Bel Air. He was 80. A World War II veteran, Mr. Powers was state adjutant for the VFW from 1985 to 1989, running the administrative end of an organization that at the time served 38,000 veterans. Mr. Powers was a computer buff from the days when the machines took up whole rooms, and he brought that expertise to VFW headquarters in Baltimore, said Mike Mason, who as state VFW commander in 1985 appointed him to the post.
