The money will be used by Crabtree Rohrbaugh & Associates, the district's architects, to examine how much it would cost the district to acquire and renovate an existing building for a career and technology center, or build one from scratch.

Since last December, officials in Jefferson County, W.Va., have been working to preserve a state-run visitors center near Harpers Ferry, W.Va. which serves an estimated 300,000 tourists a year. The problem is they don't seem to be getting much help from the state. The center is located at the intersection of U.S. 340 and Washington Street near Harpers Ferry, in a chalet-style structure built in 1990 as a joint venture that allowed the Division of Tourism to rent the first floor for $150 a month.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Area School District will explore what it will take to operate its own career and technology program, but Wednesday held out an olive branch to the other five districts, proposing a joint venture to upgrade the Franklin County Career and Technology Center. Chambersburg has proposed taking over ownership and operation of the career and technology center and upgrading the school, a project the district estimates could cost up to $47 million. In turn, the proposal calls for the other districts - Waynesboro, Tuscarora, Greencastle-Antrim, Shippensburg and Fannett-Metal - to each commit to fund a certain number of student slots.

Philip and Laura Denny and their three children were having a great time Saturday afternoon taking in the festivities of Olde Tyme Christmas. "We usually come to Harpers Ferry in the summer, but this year we saw Olde Tyme Christmas online, so we decided to drive over," said Laura Denny, whose family is from Canfield, Ohio. The family was approaching the steps to St. Peter's Catholic Church when they saw Santa Claus. Affable Paul Ashbaugh, dressed as the jolly old elf, spotted the Denny kids about the same time they saw him. Greetings were exchanged and the trio - Julia, 6, Leah, 3 and Nathanael, 2 - jumped into the stooping Santa's arms for a quick photo op. In White Hall Tavern, Melinda Day, a Harpers Ferry National Historical Park interpreter, was explaining how the village celebrated Christmas in 1864, the last full year of the Civil War. She was surrounded at her small table by youngsters intent on helping her make icicle ornaments from strips of metal.

bobp@herald-mail.com Nick Adenhart learned at an early age that diversity is the key to being a success. When he picked pitching as his chosen craft and aimed to become a major leaguer, the ability to choose from three pitches - a fastball, a curve and a changeup - separated him from most everyone else. The value of diversity will be tested again by Adenhart after being diagnosed this week with a torn elbow ligament that will require surgery. Now, instead of the possibility of being one of the first 10 players being selected in the June 7 amateur baseball draft, Williamsport's star pitcher will be weighing alternate scenarios he must use until he can take another shot at professional baseball.

For years, auto-making giant General Motors has been criticized for conservatively standing at while the rest of the auto world went progressive, but the subtle renovation of GM continues to ramp up in 2004, starting at the top, with Cadillac's corporate flagships expanding their new and more aggressive appearance in quest of matching the world's best luxury vehicles. The addition of the XLR sports car and the SRX crossover sport-utility vehicle indicates that Cadillac has turned a corner beyond the conventional DeVille and Seville sedans, and is primed to carry GM's torch to higher ground.
