chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Chambersburg Emergency Services Chief John A. Vanlandingham, hired in 2004 to run the borough's fire department and ambulance service, resigned Tuesday citing personal reasons.

Vanlandingham, 35, was hired in February 2004 to replace Dubbs, who asked to step down from the position. "This has been going on for about six months," Vanlandingham said Wednesday of his decision to leave the position.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Neighboring townships are opposed to the Borough of Chambersburg dropping out of a regional contract and establishing its own advanced life support ambulance service. During an Emergency Services Committee meeting Wednesday, township representatives said they wanted to end any speculation about whether they supported the borough, which is considering establishing its own ambulance service for critical patients. Representatives from Greene, Hamilton, Guilford and Letterkenny townships said they wanted to move ahead and sign a three-year contract with the borough and West Shore, which has provided advanced life support to the region for the last three years.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - If the civil trial of City of Martinsburg vs. Ryneal begins today, Berkeley County Circuit Judge David Sanders ruled Monday that he will do his best to ensure that city residents are not part of the jury. However, both sides of the case said they are working toward an out-of-court settlement, which would negate the need for a trial. Whether a settlement had been reached by Monday night could not be determined. Attorney Michael Lorensen, who is representing the city, met with Martinsburg City Council members behind closed doors for nearly two hours Monday evening, updating them on the case.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Testimony in the first day of the trial of City of Martinsburg v. Ryneal Fire Co. No. 1 centered on the long-standing relationship between those two agencies and whether a written contract ever cemented the pairing. Michael Scales, attorney for Ryneal, argued that a written agreement was in place and that the city breached it in February when city officials demanded Ryneal hand over all of its money along with the three ambulances and rescue squad truck Ryneal bought for city use. As proof of the written agreement, Scales referred to the minutes from two 1985 Martinsburg City Council meetings.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com Tow trucks idled in front of the Martinsburg Fire Department on Tuesday evening, ready to haul away all of the company's ambulances because of a dispute both sides say centers on how to best serve city residents. In the end, no ambulances were towed. The dispute is between City of Martinsburg officials and Ryneal Fire Co. No. 1, a separate entity that provides ambulances, rescue equipment, cell phones, vehicle maintenance and training to city firefighters and paramedics.
