WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Glen Afton Farms, 103 acres of prime farmland on Harbaugh Church Road, will remain zoned for agriculture after a Washington Township Supervisor reversed his vote on rezoning the tract Monday night. Supervisor Richard Eigenbrode, who voted with board colleagues John Beck and Paul Benchoff to rezone the land in November - a move that paved the way for the construction of up to 200 homes, changed his mind Monday when the ordinance came up for a final vote. Supervisors James Kirby and Quinter Baumgardner have opposed the rezoning from the beginning.

WAYNESBORO, PA. It's the last big evergreen to herald in the Christmas season in Waynesboro's center square, but it's not slipping silently into history. The tree, a 35-foot-tall blue spruce, had just been lowered to the ground by a Grove crane Tuesday morning when 15 feet of its top broke off. It's the last tree in the square because the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation in the spring begins its long-discussed remake of the public square and synchronization of downtown Waynesboro's traffic control system.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The post-election ritual of shuffling leadership seats on borough councils and township supervisor boards in southern Franklin County, Pa., took place with its usual lack of fanfare in the first week of the new year. Some jurisdictions opted for new leaders, some decided to stick with incumbents, and one, in an attempt at fairness, rotates its top job each year. Richard Starliper will stay on as president of the Waynesboro Borough Council, a post he assumed two years ago from the retiring Kinney Stouffer.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- A sprained ankle will keep Donovan McNabb on the sideline Friday night when the Washington Redskins play the New York Jets. McNabb has been unable to practice since getting hurt in Saturday night's preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens. "It's quite sore," coach Mike Shanahan said, "and I don't think he could go if it was a regular season game. He's got to rehab it. " McNabb was limping badly in the locker room after the game was wearing a walking boot Monday.

Rex Grossman's opening statement in his case to become the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback was an 89-yard drive that didn't produce a point. He made up for it, sort of, with an 82-yard drive for a touchdown against a second-string defense. Hoping to gain an early edge over an injured John Beck, Grossman completed 19 of 26 passes for 207 yards Friday night to help the Redskins beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-7 in the preseason opener for both teams. While the proceedings were ho-hum August routine for a stable Steelers team coming off a Super Bowl appearance, the ever-changing Redskins put more stock than usual in the first preseason game.
