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.

"This is a trial," said Doug Stull, Hagerstown recreation manager. "It will be the first time - there are no pets allowed in any city parks now. " At their regular monthly meeting Thursday at the Western Maryland Hospital Center, advisory board members were shown two proposed dog-walking areas within the perimeter of the fairgrounds.

Can you tell us what to do? Four years ago, at the suggestion of Publisher John League, I put out the call for readers to serve on a citizens advisory board for Herald-Mail's editorial page. Since 1997, the group has met monthly to talk over issues for the editorial page and suggest topics for my own personal columns, which appear on Thursdays and Sundays. The group has hashed over everything from the allowable length of letters to the editor to which syndicated columnists we should run, and a lot of ground in between.

County considers allowing tip jars at Ag Center The Washington County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to pursue a request by several county nonprofits to operate tip jars during events held at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Commissioner Doris Nipps said the county's recreation and parks board had endorsed the request, proposing that such requests be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and be limited to 501c3 organizations within Washington County. Assistant County Attorney John Martirano said the county would have to clarify terms of its lease with the University of Maryland, which owns the property, to see whether state regulations would permit gambling at the site.
