We also said that state education officials, who should have been paying closer attention to Baltimore's descent into a flood of red ink, needed a shake-up of their own. They may get it sooner than they anticipated. Last week, Circuit Judge Joseph H.H. Kaplan issued a 70-page ruling, which said the state should increase its contribution to the Baltimore schools by $225 million in the next four years.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The steel skeleton of the new academic wing for Chambersburg Area Senior High School has been erected and the new gymnasium is on schedule for completion this summer as the $74 million high school expansion and renovation proceeds on schedule.
