CHAMBERSBURG, PA. -- Kim Dixon, 17, might have been on trial in Franklin County (Pa.) Court for assault Friday, but the teenager barely showed any remorse as she smiled at the judge and jury. Charged with two misdemeanors and one felony for breaking the arm of her classmate, Criss Lyman, Dixon smiled as if confident she would not face jail time. "If the sun would not have come up this morning, she would have said it was my fault," Dixon said on the stand. "I was sick of it. " One by one, the jury declared Dixon "not guilty," but none of that appeared to matter to Lyman as she sat cradling a broken arm during the verdict.

HAGERSTOWN - Brandi Koontz doesn't think that women get recognized for all of their accomplishments. "I don't think women are treated equally," she said. That's why she recently joined the Washington County Commission for Women. At 14 years old, Brandi is the youngest person to ever join the commission. Brandi applied because she wanted a way of "equalizing women's rights," she said. She and her grandmother, Mary Jane Koontz, went through the application and interview process together, and were appointed to the commission on Sept.

Friends, co-stars mourn Jerry Orbach NEW YORK (AP) - Jerry Orbach was mourned with music and meditations Friday during a funeral where he was remembered as the quintessential New Yorker on the long-running police drama "Law and Order. " "He always knew his lines - and yours, too," said choked-up co-star Sam Waterston, who joined 300 people for the hourlong service at Riverside Memorial Chapel on Manhattan's West Side. Orbach, a Broadway song-and-dance man who achieved his widest fame as Detective Lennie Briscoe on TV's "Law & Order," died of prostate cancer Tuesday night at age 69. Show business figures including Chris Noth, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello, Tony Roberts, Michael Imperioli, Brian Dennehy, Benjamin Bratt and Malachy McCourt attended the secular service, where Orbach lay in a simple wooden coffin draped with white blossoms under the chapel's vaulted, blue-and-gold ceiling.

Letters to the editor I've read some awful nice things in The Herald-Mail To the editor: Although I reside in Pennsylvania, some of my fondest memories are from the times spent in Maryland. My parents discovered Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County when I was attending high school. Every summer for years we would embark upon our annual pilgrimage to the State Park to spend three weeks of my dad's vacation there. After years and years of the problems of towing the camper and the boat to the same destination they finally purchased some property on the lake and built a cottage.

No one will want to be a correctional officer To the editor: This is concerning the correctional system and incarceration of inmates, both now and in the past. How can you operate a correctional system without law and order? In the past, when a person was incarcerated for a crime, no matter what the crime might have been, they lost all rights. In the old days, weren't you supposed to pay the price? Who is paying now? We, the law- abiding citizens and taxpayers.
