CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Telephone service in Chambersburg Borough was out for about an hour Tuesday morning. Anyone trying to call or fax into or out of the borough received a busy signal or a recording, said Jordan, a repair representative at Sprint telephone company. Business lines to borough emergency services were down for the hour, but calls to 911 were not affected. "It got fixed pretty quickly," Jordan said, though he didn't know what caused the problem. Phones went out just before 10 a.m. Workers had it fixed by 10:40 a.m., Jordan said.
by MARLO BARNHART | February 16, 2005 WILLIAMSPORT - When Nellie Jordan started the chess club at Williamsport Elementary School in the 2003-04 school year, she had high hopes it would be a success. Actually, the endeavor proved to be almost too successful. "We had 35 children sign up," Jordan said. "There were so many I ran out of seats in my room so we had to do it on two nights instead of one. " Part of that overwhelming interest may be because in the popular Harry Potter books, the characters play living chess, Jordan said.
by KATE COLEMAN | December 16, 2002 There's a framed poster on the wall in Community Action Council Executive Director David G. Jordan's office: "Stand up for what is right, even if you're standing alone. " Jordan, in the position since April 1, inherited that poster. But it remains prominent. Community Action Council was founded in 1965, part of President Lyndon B. Johnson's "War of Poverty. " "The war is still raging," Jordan says. The agency's goal has been to work itself out of a job, Jordan says.

HAGERSTOWN - Some of Washington County's most unfortunate children were treated to a heartfelt Christmas party Saturday morning at the Alsatia Club in Hagerstown. Millie Lowman, executive director of the Parent-Child Center on North Potomac Avenue, said the event was held to make Christmas a little merrier for 75 abused and neglected children. A few of the children - some as young as 5 years old - have been sexually assaulted, she said. "These are children who, if we didn't have a party today, wouldn't get a Christmas present," Lowman said.

The Washington County Community Action Council has seen a substantial increase in people asking for help with home foreclosures. CAC Executive Director David G. Jordan said the organization has hired an extra counselor to handle the increase. "We used to serve maybe 10 or 20 people a year. Now it's more like 10 a month. And I'm sure the number will go up," Jordan said. For several years, CAC has offered mortgage foreclosure counseling. While the organization does not have money to offer people who are behind on their house payments, they have three counselors who sometimes can convince lenders to work out different payment plans.

Editor's Note: The following is the third of a four-part series on sibling teammates who play basketball in the Tri-State area. HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - As a senior and four-year starter for the No. 1 Hedgesville girls basketball team, point guard Miranda Reed has seen nearly everything and done most of it, including two West Virginia Class AAA state tournament appearances and scoring her 1,000th point at home on Feb. 4.

This past weekend saw an upset at the box office as "The Call" became the weekend's most successful new release, beating out the star-studded but formulaic magic comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. "  Maybe it was just my relief at not having to review that bomb, or maybe it was the excitement of rushing out to a movie after midnight Saturday, but I found "The Call" to be surprisingly endearing.  The same thing happened with "Chronicle" last year, and while "The Call" isn't worthy of the near-rave review I gave "Chronicle," I was at least glad to have gone out of my way to see it. Halle Berry stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who is traumatized in film's opening moments when she mishandles a call about a home invasion that leads to a girl's death.

The Hagerstown Suns adopted an assembly line approach to Saturday’s doubleheader with West Virginia. The Suns let Taylor Jordan’s fastball do all the work while the offense did the heavy lifting. Jordan dominated the Power with a complete game, four-hit shutout in the nightcap but they constructed a big inning in each game for a 9-5, 5-0 sweep of West Virginia before 2,413 fans at Municipal Stadium. Jordan, the Suns’ all-star starting pitcher, spent the night challenging the Power to hit his fastball in what became a much-needed complete-game effort.

He was controlling. Jealous, after the baby was born. But he had not been physically violent. Jordan Appel, 24, of Hancock, said her baby's father, Nicholas Ray McKee, displayed no blatant pattern of abuse. Yet 5-week-old Bella Appel of Hancock died in January 2010, and in December, McKee was convicted of first-degree child abuse resulting in death and other charges. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison. In retrospect, Appel said, there were "little things" she'd overlooked for fear of overreacting.
