I remember one day when I was in the eighth grade at the old Boonsboro Middle School. It was a time for mischief, and some fun at the expense of the substitute teacher in a social studies class. I never had an opinion on corporal punishment in high school, until the events of this day unfolded. I can’t remember all the things we had for school lunch that day, but one food item I do remember well was raisins. I didn’t eat the raisins at lunch but placed them in my shirt pocket for later use. At 1 p.m., we had our first afternoon class.

"In regards to the article about the substitute teacher that taped the student's mouth shut. I just wanted to say that there is a substitute teacher at Eastern Elementary that my kids love. Her name is Mrs. Ridenour. My children have had her a few times this year. I see her a lot at school and every time I do see her, at least one child reaches their hands out for a quick hug. She welcomingly gives one back. I just wanted to say thanks to Mrs. Ridenour, for making my children feeling safe and comfortable when you are in the room and not their teacher.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Bob Thomas will remain coach of the Chambersburg High School baseball team - he just won't be getting paid for it anymore. The school board is scheduled to act on the coach's resignation Wednesday night. At the same meeting the board is expected to appoint him as the volunteer coach of the Trojans. Paradoxically, the reason he will give up his coaching paycheck is a matter of money. "It's because the state retirement board won't allow you to draw your retirement and be a paid coach," said Thomas, 62, after hitting flies and slapping grounders to his players at the end of Monday's practice.

All six Eastern Panhandle Republican members of the West Virginia House of Delegates voted against a bill that requires central office administrators to substitute for absent teachers three days a year. Senate Bill 80 was sent Tuesday to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin as a move to reduce substitute teacher costs, which can amount to $125 per day per substitute. Seventy-eight Democrats in the House of Delegates voted for the bill, while 20 Republicans opposed the measure. Area Republicans opposed the bill because the authority to enforce it rested with the state, not local school boards.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- A list of movies including "Cast Away" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was presented to the Waynesboro Area School Board as having been shown in the high school since March. The board decided all movies scheduled to be shown in the schools must be approved by Superintendent James Robertson, who was told to generate periodic reports for the board. Board President Ed Wilson said he talked to administrators for two years about the issue. Saying he was frustrated by a lack of action, Wilson handed out a student-generated list of movies shown in the past few weeks.

No one could do this by themselves," said Weber, 46. Weber grew up in Halfway and graduated from St. Maria Goretti High School in 1981. She and her husband, Tom, moved from Allentown, Pa., to Clear Spring in 2001 with their young children.
