NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett says a Franklin County man accused of traveling to York, Pa., to have sex with what he believed was a 14-year old girl, and a former girls' volleyball coach for a suburban Philadelphia school were among those arrested in an online sex sting. Corbett said Chad Randall Keefer, 43, of 13327 Locust Level Road, Greencastle, Pa., allegedly used an Internet chat room to approach an undercover agent who was using the online profile of a 13-year-old girl from York, Pa. Keefer allegedly asked if she would be interested in meeting so they could "play" -- explaining that he was interested in touching and feeling her, along with "whatever else" she would allow, Corbett said.

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.
