scottb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - During the first meeting of the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown's Board of Advisors on Thursday, less than three months before classes are to begin, the university system's chancellor said the way the local community rallied around the project is one of the most inspiring things he has seen. Many of the people on the 17-member advisory board have been involved in promoting the project for several years, Chancellor William Kirwan said at the meeting in Frostburg State University's community room.

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.

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.
