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.

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.

She said she has studied articles and legal documents from the decade-long battle over the exit in preparation for her visit.

In his unsuccessful attempt to win a third state Senate term, Republican Alex X. Mooney raised more than $200,000 and spent double that, 2010 campaign finance reports show.
