NEW YORK (AP) - Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sister team behind the label Rodarte, are the reigning queens of the fashion scene, with a white-hot runway reputation, industry accolades and red-carpet fans. You wouldn't know it to talk to them, though. The sisters are about as low key as you can get. They live and work in Pasadena, Calif., far away from the politics and personalities of the industry. And that, says Laura, gives them a freedom they likely wouldn't have if they were based here in one of the world's fashion capitals.

Editor's note: On Tuesday, Chambersburg Area School District Superintendent Joseph Padasak sat down with Herald-Mail reporter Don Aines for a question-and-answer session. Following is the transcript, edited for length, of that session. Q: What's your vision for the Franklin County Career & Technology Center in the next five to seven years?

I'm also sad because I know that when he goes on to college, I'll hear myself echoing the lament I've heard from so many other parents over the years.

We're all aware of the great grocery downsizing scam that's taking center stage at your local supermarket. But strangely enough, I'm not mad about that. I've always admired creative thinking, and for that reason alone I have to stand up and applaud the consumer-product packing divisions across this great land of ours. First, this isn't new. Vending machine candy bars were way ahead of the curve, and they were pretty slick about it. They'd say, "Hey, we're lowering the price on Snickers.
