CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. ? Generations of Trojans baseball players have rapped out hits and turned double plays at Henninger Field in Chambersburg, a tradition that will likely end in 2008 with the team moving to a new field at Greene Township's municipal park near Scotland. The Chambersburg School Board on Wednesday authorized the administration to draft an agreement with the township for use of its field, a proposal township Supervisor Todd Burns outlined for the board a few months ago. Burns told the school board then that the township was looking for a multiyear deal starting at $15,000 annually that would give the Trojans exclusive use of the ballfield during the high school baseball season.

Scenes from their lives passed before the Hancock High School Class of 2013 Thursday evening in the form of a slideshow flashing images of the past four years across a wall of the auditorium. The musical accompaniment to the slideshow included John Mellencamp's “Small Town,” an appropriate selection for the town and the school, which sent 43 young men and women off into the adult world. “Of course, we all want to take risks and live life to the fullest,” said Valedictorian Sara Wagner, whose address theme was “You Only Live Once.” The risks chosen have to be wisely considered, she said.
