chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg plans to get out of the airport business by the end of the year, but the Borough Council on Tuesday agreed to lease one of the hangars until then, and on a month-to-month basis after Dec. 31. D. Gerald Edwards is not exactly a new tenant, Borough Manager Eric Oyer said Monday. The borough had a 20-year lease with Mountain Brook Orchards, which built the hangar, for the land on which the hangar sits. Edwards sold the orchard earlier this year and the council agreed Tuesday to lease the hangar to him for $300 per month beginning Sept.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A $50,000 state grant will allow the Martinsburg Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol to realize a long-held dream - to have its own permanent facility. State Sen. John Unger announced the community partnership award Tuesday in an awards ceremony for members of the volunteer organization at the 167th Airlift Wing of the West Virginia Air National Guard base south of Martinsburg. Unger, D-Berkeley/Jefferson, said the Martinsburg squadron was deserving of the money, given its own fundraising efforts for the hangar project and the unit's recognition as the 2008 Squadron of Distinction in the six-state Middle East Region, which includes the national capital area.

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday approved a plan to allow skydiving at Washington County Regional Airport, but not without reservations. The commissioners voted to send a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration asking the FAA to reconsider the potential negative economic impact that skydiving could have at the airport. The FAA is forcing the county to allow skydiving or risk losing millions of dollars in grant funding. The commissioners are concerned that skydiving could discourage economic development and efforts to expand passenger service.

HAGERSTOWN -- Through the dim atmosphere of an aircraft hangar came an old familiar tune. The number bore a bluesy imprint, with every beat of the drum, every tap of the cymbal fitting carefully into the song. It was easy to soak in the pure tones. Minutes later, the band -- Dem Guise -- switched gears, firing up their electric guitars and leaping into music by Van Morrison. The night would hold something for everyone. An eclectic mix of blues, folk and rock was on the musical menu Saturday night for Dancin' in the Hangar.
