MERCERSBURG, PA. - Organizers of the 20th annual Two Top Ruritan Steam and Gas Show say the three-day event is about working for the community. In the words of Two Top Ruritan Club President Ralph Daugherty, the club's 23 members "work hard for free to make money, then give it away to the needy in the community. " Like most Ruritan clubs, the Two Top charter is a fundraising organization. The annual Steam and Gas show is the highlight for the small club, but Daugherty admitted he could not recall how much the club raised with the event last year.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The trial for a Wisconsin man charged in a 1997 Jefferson County, W.Va., shooting was delayed Tuesday when court officials could not seat enough jurors, officials said. One reason enough jurors could not be seated was because several read a story in a local newspaper about a plea bargain offer that was made to Patrick Carr, 53, of Minocquan, said Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Larry Crofford. The concern was whether reading the story would taint prospective jurors' opinions of the case, said Crofford.
