chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A tie vote Wednesday by the Chambersburg School Board has put on hold plans to build a three-deep elementary school at the present site of U.L. Gordy Elementary School. A motion to approve a contract with Foreman Architects for construction of a new U.L. Gordy failed on a 4-4 vote, delaying any action on the $11 million to $12 million project until a facility study advisory board comes back with a recommendation, probably no earlier than May 31. The formation of that advisory board, a task force of up to 45 members, was approved by the board on a 7-1 vote and will hold its first meeting Feb. 3. Directors Dave Sciamanna, Renee Sharpe, Lori Leedy and Robert Helman voted against the contract.

He was then asked to be on the board, said yes and has never looked back. "There's nothin' like 'em. They can't be beat as far as I'm concerned," said Shifler, who is one of 24 Salvation Army board members.
