Even though he is arguably the most successful athlete at James Buchanan High School, Andrew Shatzer doesn't always play the part. "His gym teacher was amazed when he found out how good he was," said Shatzer's coach, Patty Leazier. "He was like, 'No way.'" "I got a 'C' in gym," Shatzer said with a smile. If inline speedskating were a part of the phys ed curriculum, however, he'd be in a class of his own. Within the sport itself, he already is. Shatzer, 17, of St. Thomas, Pa., who will be a senior this year at James Buchanan, is one of the top inline speedskaters in the United States.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A U.S. congressional advisory panel said Thursday that Chinese spies are aggressively stealing American secrets to use in building Beijing's military and economic strength. The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission also said in its annual report to lawmakers that Beijing is building a navy that could block the U.S. military from getting to the region if fighting should break out between China and Taiwan, the self-governing island off China's southeastern coast that China claims as its own. The report follows President Barack Obama's visit this week to China, where he had extensive talks with President Hu Jintao.

WILLIAMSPORT - The former Lenox distribution center on Industrial Lane is under contract for sale, said Phil Lynch, spokesman for Lenox's parent company, Brown-Forman.
