The Washington County Planning Commission recommended Monday night that the County Commissioners reject a proposal to rezone 23 acres in the Pleasant Valley area that would make room for 34 homes. The proposed rezoning would change the designation of the land on Keep Tryst Road at U.S. 340 from business general to residential suburban. The Planning Commission voted 4-0 on the action, saying they didn't think a residential suburban designation was the appropriate classification for the land.

What does the "D" in D-Day stand for? The "D" stands for day. And yes, that means it translates to Day-Day. D and H designate the day and hour on which a combat attack is to begin. According to an article in The Stars and Stripes, the first known use of the designation was for a World War I operation at St.-Mihiel, France. But the most commonly known D-Day, of course, is June 6, 1944, when allied forces invaded Normandy.

scottb@herald-mail.com Administrators of public school systems in the Tri-State area say they are working with the small percentage of teachers who do not meet a federal mandate to be designated as "highly qualified" in the classes they teach by the July 2006 deadline. The requirement is part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, said Eric Michael, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction for the Chambersburg (Pa.) Area School District. Most teachers in the Tri-State area already meet the federal designation because they have full state certification or have taken tests demonstrating their knowledge of the subject they teach, administrators at three school systems said recently.
