CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - "Long shots win," Peg Luksik said Thursday over a cup of coffee at Howard Johnson's in Chambersburg. "The last long shot was in 1992 and his name was Bill Clinton," the Constitutional Party gubernatorial candidate said as a television behind the counter detailed the latest developments in the Monica Lewinsky affair. Luksik said former president George Bush had "a 70-some percent approval rating in 1992 and nobody wanted to run against him. " The Johnstown, Pa., woman is in a somewhat similar position as she seeks to unseat popular Republican Governor Tom Ridge.

By RICHARD F. BELISLE Staff Writer FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - Each year tons of debris, litter, junk, old tires, and even old appliances show up along the 130 miles of gravel road that crisscross the 86,000-acre Michaux State Forest that touches Franklin, Adams and Cumberland counties in Pennsylvania. The task of guarding the forest against illegal dumpers is left to the single ranger who patrols its roads, said Kenneth D. Swartz, chief ranger. "If we can catch them we prosecute, but it's hard to catch them with just one man on five days a week," Swartz said.

Republican Alex X. Mooney poured close to $400,000 into his unsuccessful run for another state Senate term, according to 2010 campaign finance reports reviewed by The Herald-Mail. In his bid for a fourth term, Mooney lost to Democrat Ronald N. Young, but outspent him nearly 7-to-1 — about $385,000 to $57,000. Those totals are based on expenditures detailed in four state campaign finance reports that candidates and political organizations had to file during 2010.   Those reports cover the bulk of 2010 — minus the first two weeks, which are folded into an annual recap of 2009, and the last six weeks, which will be part of a 2011 annual report due later this month.
