I have just now read your editorial in last weeks paper about renaming the lake and I couldn’t agree with you more. I have tremendous respect for Representative Curtis Halford and he has definitely been a friend to Carroll County throughout his service in the state legislature but Dale Kelley is THE person that worked relentlessly for years to make the lake a reality. While others might have tried to accomplish something of this nature, they would have given up with the obstacles that he encountered during this process.
The renaming of the lake caught all of us by surprise and I think local input would have been the only appropriate way to proceed with that process. Anyway Shirley, I just wanted to say thanks for you making your thoughts public, you are not alone in your opinion!
