tiffanya@herald-mail.com Art student Mike O'Brien has had several summer jobs between semesters, but none was as fulfilling as what he does now. Instead of spending the summer as he had before, working at a local restaurant or at his father's flower shop downtown, O'Brien, 21, is selling his artwork until he goes back to school in September. "It makes me feel good," O'Brien said. "I can do what I love to do and make enough money to last through the semester. " The aspiring illustrator works from the small space next door to his father's business, Ben's Flower Shop, on Potomac Street, where his work sells for $100 to $250, depending on size.

Nicknames are difficult to change. The administrative team at the Franklin County Career and Technology Center off Loop Road in Chambersburg, says the school's old moniker, “Vo Tech,” just doesn't fit anymore. Career and Technology Center Administrative Director Keith Yohn said “Vo Tech” is an outdated term that just doesn't fit the new, state-of-the art school. “It's so much more than a vocational technical school,” Yohn said. “We offer vocational and technical skills, but we're also preparing students for careers.” Students from Chambersburg, Shippensburg, Tuscarora, Waynesboro and Greencastle-Antrim school districts attend the Franklin County Career and Technology Center.

There are no two ways about it - Thomas “Tom” Law was a craftsman. From his training at a private art school in Washington, D.C., in seventh and eighth grade, electrical training while in the U.S. Navy, to his skills as a carpenter, sharpener of vintage hand saws and maker and restorer of Civil War drums, Law was known far and wide for his talents. “He was multitalented with multiple interests. You'd think any one of them would have been enough,” said Tom's oldest brother, Preston E. “Toby” Law Jr. of Hagerstown.
