HAGERSTOWN-- All 15 students in Jan Cirincione's baby sitter's training course had their own baby doll to practice on. But only 12-year-old Rebecca Navarro was cradling hers like it was real. "That is probably because she has a 2-month-old baby sister at home," said Rebecca's mom, Sherry Schlomer, who was contacted by telephone. Recently Rebecca and her fellow baby sitters were availing themselves of a course sponsored by the American Red Cross in Washington County and taught by Cirincione for the past four or five years.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - For much of the last 20 years Roger and Patti Tappen have cared for Nathan, their 21-year-old severely retarded son. They say he functions like a 2-month-old baby. Their greatest salvation, Patti Tappen said, comes from free baby-sitting services provided by the Franklin/Fulton Association of Retarded Citizens. Without the service the Tappens and other area families like theirs could not leave their homes. Hoping to repay ARC for its help over the years, Roger Tappen, a professional chef, has organized a fund-raising dinner to be held today from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the AMVETS pavilion at 750 Fifth Ave. in Chambersburg, Pa. Tickets are $12. He hopes to raise $5,000.

WILLIAMSPORT - It was an unconventional baby-sitting job to say the least. Volunteers from St. Andrew Presbyterian Church looked after charges who had undeniably unique personalities. Yet they appeared to be content lying flat on their backs, sprawled across the grassy hill at Byron Memorial Park, staring wide-eyed at the clear blue sky looking, well, brainless. Katelynn's toothless smile never wavered, and Billy Bob lay still even as Scary Harry's arm roosted haphazardly across his brow.

A Franklin County, Pa., magisterial district judge Tuesday dismissed an involuntary manslaughter charge against a Shippensburg, Pa., baby sitter after an infant in her care died last summer. Judge Todd R. Williams told 10-month-old Heath Ryder's family members they have his sympathy before dismissing the felony charge. He decided Dottie Mae Bowers, 56, should be arraigned on the remaining charge against her, which is one count of endangering the welfare of a child. "The evidence is insufficient ... on the specifics of that charge," Williams said of involuntary manslaughter, which the law defines as acting in a reckless or negligent manner that results in someone's death.
