chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, have become a part of America's national memory, but every moment in time is also marked by a place, such as the field near Shanksville, Pa., where United Flight 93 crashed as its crew and passengers reportedly attempted to wrest control from the hijackers. When the jet airliner crashed at 10:06 a.m., the Somerset County town ceased to be "a lost dot on the map," said the Rev. Jay Shaffer, pastor of Unity United Church of Christ in Shanksville.

Spartans' playoff run comes to abrupt end By BOB PARASILITI / Staff Writer McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - The McConnellsburg volleyball team was forced to try Plan B on Tuesday. The Spartans were used to winning - and winning in two games - for much of the season to earn a second seed in the Pennsylvania Class A Region 5 playoffs. But McConnellsburg lost the opener. "We have to go and get to a third game or the season was over," coach Greg Hays said. The Spartans failed to respond ... and the season is over.

A Sept. 11, 2001, memorial at Red Run Park is taking shape as GRC General Contractor Inc. crews install beams and prepare to complete the roof structure. An electrician could be working at the site as early as Friday followed by Washington Township, Pa., maintenance workers and masons next week, officials said. When completed, the memorial at the park off Pa. 16 will feature artifacts from the three sites of terrorist attacks nearly 12 years ago: Ground Zero in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the field where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pa. “I hope when it's all done, and people go there, they can sit, meditate or just enjoy the solitude to think about what people sacrificed,” said William Conrad, a township supervisor and chairman of the organizing committee of volunteers.

David and Peggy Beamer, parents of Todd Beamer, the passenger on Flight 93 who uttered the now famous battle cry, “Let's roll,” on the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11, met with Charles Town Middle School students Tuesday. David Beamer, addressing the eighth-grade class in the school gym, said the fact that United Flight 93 was delayed in leaving Newark was a “blessing.” It prevented the terrorists who hijacked the plane from reaching what many believe was their targeted destination: the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. He said because of the delay, the 43 passengers and three crew members had time to learn that terrorists had crashed two planes into the World Trade Center towers and one into the Pentagon earlier that morning.
