Warren “Bus” Seymour must have really loved his job because the former Williamsport town clerk and mayor can still be heard pecking away at a typewriter - though he died in 1985. “I've heard that,” daughter Elissa Slayman said of her father's benign haunting. “And they hear him walking and his keys rattling.” “He just loved that town,” Slayman said of her father, who served as town clerk for 42 years before being elected mayor and dying while in office. Legend has it - which is a great phrase to kick off any ghost story - there are some other spirits that roam the halls of Town Hall, as well as the streets and historic buildings, along with Doubleday Hill and Riverview Cemetery in Williamsport, which tour guide Alan Redding expounded upon during a chilly night's tour through the town.

Fielder trial moves ahead MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A West Virginia University neurologist has been retained to review the medical records of a 58-year-old man accused in the killing last year of his ex-wife, Debra A. Fielder. Indicted in February on one count of first-degree murder, Stephen R. Fielder of 9280 Winchester Ave. in Bunker Hill, W.Va., is accused of dumping his ex-wife's dismembered body in Back Creek sometime after she was last seen alive Aug. 11, 2006. In a brief hearing Monday, defense attorney B. Craig Manford told presiding 23rd Judicial Circuit judge David H. Sanders that he might ask the state to pay for a CT scan or an MRI for his client, who he previously said suffered a series of strokes and might not have been capable of premeditated murder.
