BOLIVAR, W.Va. -- A report on a March 10 inspection by state fire marshals at a 44-student private religious school has left school officials with three choices -- all expensive. Bob Adams, spokesman for Bolivar Christian School at 87 Old Taylor Road, said school leaders can decide to correct the deficiencies in the fire marshal's report, build a new school building or leave the students in a current temporary facility at Rocky Spring Church on Leetown Pike. "We have three choices but the board hasn't decided on anything," Adams said.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Marjorie Tressler found herself stuck when trying to title her painting that had been a work in progress for eight years. So when she hosted a party for 50 friends, Tressler asked guests to sign a book with their thoughts on the painting of Jesus looking over schoolchildren. The artist wrote a note to her guests to accompany the book and signed it, "From my heart to yours, Marjorie. " The Waynesboro woman's pastor walked in, took one look at the note and told Tressler that she needed to look no further for a painting title.
