The Greencastle-Antrim football team broke the bank on Friday. The Blue Devils went all in in the second half and won the Gettysburg lottery. Greencastle turned up the defense and put the Warriors in pause mode by running up 35 second-half points to end a run of 43 straight to notch a 50-3 win in its Mid Penn Colonial opener. “Gettysburg took more chances in the second half and when you do that, turnovers happen,” Greencastle coach Chuck Tinninis said. Those chances came up lemons for the Warriors and hit the jackpot for the Blue Devils.

Meanwhile, the film continues to undergo slight alterations, Maxwell said. He is not going to deliver the movie to Warner Brothers until Jan. 24 because he is still making last-minute changes, he said. One question left unresolved is whether to cut or keep scenes in the movie portraying the Battle of Antietam, he said.

"I found that the district taxpayers did not directly pay for the Gettysburg tour buses or the Gettysburg hotel rooms or the dinners at the Dobbin House," Carl Barton told the board. "The bad news is the district architectural firm, Crabtree Rohrbaugh & Associates, paid the $5,679 cost of these items.
