NEW MARKET, Md. (AP) -- The town of New Market has given a teen the go-ahead to build and install a sign for a community park.

The Frederick News-Post ( ) reports 14-year-old Gaven Sovero proposed the sign earlier this month at a meeting of the New Market town Council. His plan for a wooden sign was given approval.

Gaven says he'll seek wood donations from local businesses. He'll stain the wood and engrave words that will be painted in. And he's going to get some help from his Boy Scout troop in erecting the sign. Gaven himself is working to become an Eagle Scout.

The community park that's getting the sign has a playground, basketball court and pavilion.
