CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Richard Alloway II exited stage left and affixed his eyes squarely on Robert "Bob" Curley on Monday evening. Alloway had spoken for three minutes as the first Pennsylvania Senate candidate given the opportunity to do so at the annual Franklin County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner.

The Waynesboro Area School Board is expected to continue hammering out its 2011-12 budget and possible program cuts at a meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday. The board is looking at areas of its curriculum not mandated by the state to be taught. On its list are some foreign language, technology education, and family and consumer sciences classes, according to Superintendent James Robertson. “We’re just looking at ways to close the gap,” Robertson said Monday. The board is grappling with an anticipated $1.9 million deficit, which is after two support staff positions and six teacher positions are cut. Contributing to the deficit is a plan from Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett to return K-12 public education funding to 2008-09 levels.

DRV NOW ... TXT L8R for nontexters means drive now, text later, and it's a warning that could save your life. Pennsylvania Wednesday became the 35th state to ban texting while driving when Gov. Tom Corbett signed a bill into law prohibiting it. The law, which goes into effect in March, will make texting a primary offense, meaning police can pull over drivers they see violating the law. It carries a potential $50 fine. There were 13,790 crashes and 66 fatalities in Pennsylvania in 2010 caused by distracted driving, according to Corbett.
