Fun with Local Jeopardy! Teen Tournament Champ

If the answer is Raynell Cooper, the question must be: Who is the 16-year old Richard Montgomery High School senior who came from behind to win the ‘Jeopardy!’ Teen Tournament that aired on March 2 and 3? Raynell was very serious during the competition taped over a two-week period in December in Culver City, Calif., but when I presented a proclamation to him on behalf of the Council on March 29, we had a good laugh with a series of trivia questions on Montgomery County facts. Do you know your local trivia? 1. Answer: This is the total square miles of land area in Montgomery County. Question: What is 497? 2. Answer: This is the number of people living in Montgomery Count, according to the 2010 Census. Question: What is 971,777? 3. Answer: They are Layton, Clarke, Poole, Hyatt, Neel, Browning, Clagett, King, Dawson, White, Dickerson, Spencer, Burton, Darne, Brooke and Gaither Question: What are some of the historic families whose names show up on a map of Montgomery County?
