WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Voters Tuesday will be filling four seats on each of four Franklin County school districts, but only two of the four elections are being contested, election officials said.

WAYNESBORO AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT:

The only contested race in the Waynesboro Area School District is between two-term incumbent Leland Lemley, who is fending off a challenge by newcomer Emily Myers.

The other three candidates on the ballot are unopposed. Dr. Robert Ternes, the incumbent school board president, is seeking a second four-year term. Also unopposed are Hector Gomez and Stan Barkdoll. They will replace incumbents Joseph Bock and Donald Weller, who chose not to run again.

TUSCARORA SCHOOL DISTRICT:

Giancarlo "John" Angelini, president of the Tuscarora School Board, is the only incumbent among five candidates running for the four open seats.

Angelini is being helped in his re-election bid by a group led by a trio of unsuccessful board candidates who shared the slate with him in the May primary. They are Ralph E. Sipes, Gerald Landis and Melford Kendle. The group, consisting of seven members, calls itself We the People. The short-range goal for the group, which Sipes calls conservative, is Angelini's re-election to another four-year term.

The other four candidates are Jeffrey Spidel, Janice Hawbaker, Jane Rice and Roger Price. The top four vote-getters will win seats.

Three incumbent board members not seeking re-election are James C. Zeger, Timothy Mouse and Donald G. Kunkle.

GREENCASTLE/ANTRIM SCHOOL DISTRICT:

The four highest vote-getters of the five running in the Greencastle/Antrim School District's election will be seated. Four of the five are incumbents, including Robert Luger, Pamela Ott, Hal Myers and Kenneth Rhoe.

The challenger on the ballot is Joan O'Keefe.

CHAMBERSBURG AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT:

Incumbent Board President D. Eugene Gayman is among the four candidates running unopposed in the Chambersburg Area School District election. Gayman, who has 22 total years of service, is the board's most senior member. He served first from 1963 to 1981 and returned for his current four-year term in 1993.

Board incumbents Robert L. Helman and Fred E. Rice are also running unopposed.

Incumbent Joel Sollenberger chose not to seek re-election. His seat will go to Dr. Thomas P. Orndorff, a local physician, who emerged from the May primary unopposed.

The board consists of nine members.
