It now appears Six-year old Elian Gonazales will remain in this country at least until next week.
The U-S Justice Department has filed papers with a federal appeals court in reponse to a temporary restraining order issued yesterday.
As you know, the little boy has been here since Thanksgiving. His mother drowned trying to reach the United States from Cuba, but Elian survived the ordeal.
Jennifer Jones is outside the Gonzales home in Little Havana... where the atmosphere is a bit more relaxed than it's been in the last few days.

But now Dr. Kelleher can tell his patients he's joined Primary Care Associates at the Lee-Hi Family Practice in Salem.

The only problem is he says Lewis-Gale Clinic did not allow him to take patient files when he left the Back Creek office, so he has to remember his entire patient load. [Pre-Pro] Primary Care Associates is made up of 12 former Clinic physicians. Doctors Edwin Polerino, John Priddy and Serge Depret-Guillaume (Doo-pray GEE-ome) are at the West Salem Family Practice. In Fincastle -- Doctors Clarke Andrews and Kenneth Luckay are seeing patients.
