When Carl Zello died April 10 at the age of 93, he left a legacy to the students at Heritage Academy. In 1968, when a group of parents was looking for land on which to build a school, Zello donated 10 acres five miles west of Hagerstown for the school. After the Supreme Court voted to remove prayer and Bible reading from public schools in 1968, a group of parents began to meet for prayer and to discuss the possibilities of beginning a Christian school in the Hagerstown area.

Homeschool moms get support By MARLO BARNHART Sheryl Deike chose to teach her children at home even though she knew the decision could have far-reaching effects. She is not alone, however.

by ANDY MASON | December 2, 2004 Ben Jordan and Nick Kipe both are on the short list of the best athletes I've covered during my two-plus years working at this newspaper. This past spring, Jordan batted .539 for the Williamsport baseball team and was named All-Area First Team, while Kipe was virtually untouchable in the triple jump for the Waynesboro track team and was named All-Area First Team. Last fall, Jordan and Kipe both were All-Area First Team soccer players. Now, they are teammates for real, although Jordan still says, "It's surreal.

CLEAR SPRING - Chris Mitchell is a man of God and an enthusiastic sports fan who has combined those two passions under one steeple. In late January, Mitchell organized a men's basketball league at Emmanuel Baptist Temple where he is youth pastor. The teams play Monday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. at 16221 National Pike east of Clear Spring. "My wife says the word fan is short for fanatic," Mitchell said. "But it's just that I love basketball and baseball, sports which promote both good exercise and teamwork.
by DON AINES | August 3, 2004 KAUFFMAN, Pa. - She left school after the seventh grade to work, but Viola Daley Plum amazed a few of the people sitting with her Thursday evening by recalling the names of all her teachers going back 83 years. "I know Mrs. Hoover was my teacher in first grade," the 90-year-old Greencastle, Pa., woman said before listing off the other six at a reunion of students from the Brown's Mill Consolidated School. In 1921, however, the school had yet to open and Plum was attending the Old Brown's Mill School across the road.

“Man up and raise taxes, Chambersburg caller? Forget it. Every time Republicans have agreed to tax increases with promises of future spending cuts, those cuts never, ever happen. You want more revenue, install a corporate flat tax everybody pays, and get rid of all loopholes, special tax credits, and favoritism for politicians' favorite industries, like GE, which paid no federal income tax last year. Raising rates on millionaires won't change that. And get rid of the de facto Gulf drilling war ... allow drilling off our coast and approve the Keystone oil pipeline, for starters.
