March 08, 2007|by DON AINES

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - There will be two contested races for Franklin County row offices in the May 15 primary with two candidates running for the Republican nomination for the open sheriff's seat and a challenger filing against Controller Carol Fix Diller.

Sheriff Robert Wollyung announced last year he would be retire at the end of 2007 after four four-year terms in office. William M. Kauffman, a sheriff's deputy and former Waynesboro police officer, and Dane Anthony, a former deputy who unsuccessfully challenged Wollyung in the 2003 GOP primary, are running for the Republican nomination.

No Democrats filed to run for the office.

Diller, a Republican, who has been the controller for 15 years and deputy controller for 15 years prior to her first election, is seeking a fifth term. Diller is being challenged for the GOP nomination by Larry E. Funk of Greencastle, Pa., a math and science teacher at Hagerstown Business College.

Again, no Democrats filed to run in the primary.

The county's other row officers, all Republicans, will be unopposed in the primary and no Democrats filed petitions to appear on their party's ballot. Those other incumbents are District Attorney John F. Nelson, Clerk of Courts William Vandrew, Prothonotary Linda Beard, Register and Recorder Linda Miller and Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner.
