Maynard E. Keadle passed away Tuesday, and his visitation will be Friday at Lemmon Funeral Home of Dulaney Valley Inc., with funeral services Saturday at Epiphany Episcopal Church, both in Timonium.
Maynard Keadle was an avid gardener, favoring flowers, hibiscus and other flowering shrubs. But he did one thing out of the ordinary: He would rearrange shrubs, said his daughter-in-law Jan Keadle, who also has a green thumb. "If he didn't like his shrub in one place, the next thing you know he would move it, 3 feet over," she said fondly. Maynard E. Keadle, 84, the former principal of Dulaney High School passed away Tuesday at a nursing facility in Timonium, just days before his 85th birthday. The Timonium and former Hunt Valley resident loved gardening, and showed just as much care for students at Dulaney where he was principal, she said. He retired from Dulaney in 1989, said his son, Mike Keadle. "He was so loyal to Dulaney. He loved …

Did you take photos or videos of the game?

Kevin Chilcoat and his brother Brian Chilcoat are the braaaaaains behind the camera for the popular Run For Your Lives 5k coming to Darlington, MD this weekend.
In the event of a real zombie apocalypse, Kevin Chilcoat would be the man reaching for his camera, rather than a shotgun. Chilcoat would be fearless in the face of an undead outbreak tomorrow, because it’s what he does for a living today. “I’m desensitized to it,” Chilcoat said. The Cockeysville native is responsible for documenting the popular Run For Your Lives, zombie 5k, which infects Darlington, MD this weekend. He started out shooting promo videos, working his way up to national commercials with he and his brother’s company, HGL Productions. Now he has the unusual title of “zombie wrangler.” “They saw what we could do organizing 250 extras playing zombies and just asked us if we could take this off of their plate for them,” …

Kevin Kilner spoke to the high school's drama students about acting, theatre and music on behalf of Center Stage's community education relations department.
Actor Kevin Kilner's credits include an impressive list of television and film appearances including recurring roles in One Tree Hill, Greek and Earth: Final Conflict—a career that dates back to 1989, with the role of "Steve" in The Cosby Show. But before he became an actor, he was first and foremost, a Lion—a Dulaney High School Lion to be exact. Kilner graduated from the Timonium high school in 1976. He went on to Johns Hopkins University where he played midfield for the school's lacrosse team, which won three national championships between 1978-80, according to his IMDB page. On Tuesday, Kilner returned to his alma mater to speak to the school's budding thespians about acting, theatre and music classes, as part of the Center Stage …
