Put an end to 40 years of Shuster To the editor: Forty years ago Bud Shuster blew into town, registered to vote in Bedford County (Pa.) and picked up petitions to run for Congress. A slick, big-money primary campaign gave him the Republican nomination, and in this 2-1 Republican district, and the rest is history. As a young reporter, I covered Bud's announcement press conference and have witnessed the Shuster saga ever since. In 2000, after the House of Representatives reprimanded him for “serious official misconduct,” Bud resigned one day after his 15th swearing in and set things in motion for his son, Bill, to replace him. Many good Democrats have attempted to end the “Shuster dynasty.” Beverly Hillbillies actress Nancy Kulp ran against Bud. Scott Conklin, 2011 Democratic lieutenant governor nominee, nearly stopped Bill in his first race.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - John Cook's nomination of Charles "Chip" McCammon for president of the Waynesboro Borough Council Monday night was followed in the next breath by Councilman Ardie Winters, who moved that the nominations be closed. Winters' move to close nominations came so fast that newly sworn-in Councilman Jahnathan Cain was stopped in mid-sentence as he tried to offer a nomination of his own. And before the members had a chance to vote on Cook's motion nominating McCammon for president, McCammon returned the favor by nominating Cook as vice president.
