CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The cost of a new U.L. Gordy Elementary School has escalated by millions of dollars in the past year to $21 million, prompting debate among Chambersburg School Board members over the project. Architect Paul Taylor told the board the price could be reduced to $19.5 million by changing its design from three to two stories, but the resulting larger footprint would reduce the playground area on the property. It could also raise construction costs if it more rock is encountered, he said.

W.Va. high court to hear Feliciano case By BOB PARTLOW / Staff Writer, Martinsburg When Antonio Feliciano wrestled with a would-be armed robber at a 7-Eleven store in Baker Heights, W.Va., on W.Va. 9 last summer, company officials said he violated company police and fired him. The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals will now decide whether his claim that he was acting in self-defense can be used as a shield against his firing. Feliciano was an "at-will" employee - meaning the company could fire him for virtually any reason, said his attorney Paul Taylor.

Eight Ranson, W.Va., property owners have filed a lawsuit against 7-Eleven Inc., alleging they suffered damage to their properties when gasoline leaked from a 7-Eleven store in Ranson and onto their land. The suit, filed Feb. 21 in Jefferson County Circuit Court, alleges that 7-Eleven officials knew that the leak occurred as early as January 2000 at the store at 110 S. Mildred St. Despite knowing about the leak, 7-Eleven officials hid the leak from the eight nearby property owners and government agencies, the suit alleges.
