chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority is pursuing the possibility of incorporating 41 acres in the Cumberland Valley Business Park into a special incentive plan that offers state and local tax breaks. The authority board authorized Executive Director John Van Horn to approach the local taxing bodies to garner support at its meeting Monday. The site lies on the former Army land in Greene Township, so Van Horn said he needs to get approval from the township, Franklin County and the Chambersburg Area School District in order to move forward.

A Shippensburg, Pa., woman was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to six to 23 months in the county jail for her role in the death of a 10-month-old boy who sustained fatal head injuries at the hands of another child while in her care. Dottie Mae Bowers, 57, of 127 Benelton Drive, pleaded no contest in February to a first-degree misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child. Judge Carol Van Horn made Bowers eligible for early release, but ordered her to spend three years on probation following her release from jail.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A natural gas pipeline to the Cumberland Valley Business Park could open the way for more industries there, according to Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority Executive Director John Van Horn. "If you're an industrial park, gas is the first or second question asked" by potential tenants, Van Horn said Monday after the authority's board of directors authorized a line extension agreement with PPL Gas Utility. The contract requires PP&L to build a 21,500-foot gas line from an existing line near Exit 8 of Interstate 81 to Letterkenny Army Depot with another 12,000 feet of lines inside the park and depot.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - For the second time, a former Washington Township man has pleaded guilty to raping his daughter, but he could face a longer sentence than was called for in the plea agreement that Franklin County Judge Carol Van Horn rejected last fall. The 35-year-old man pleaded guilty Wednesday to rape of a child, a first-degree felony carrying a maximum of 40 years in prison. In October, Van Horn rejected a plea agreement to the same charge for which the man would have served a sentence of seven to 20 years in prison.

CHAMBERSBURG - A Franklin County judge continued until September the case of a Greencastle woman who was scheduled to go to trial next week on charges of criminal homicide in the 1985 disappearance of her husband. Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Judge Carol Van Horn granted the continuance Friday in the case against Joan Snyder Hall, 12850 Grant Shook Road. Hall's attorney, Patrick Redding, filed for the continuance after Van Horn denied his motion to suppress some statements Hall made during interviews with Pennsylvania State Police in May 1994.

It's like musical gift shops in Greencastle these days, and it takes a scorecard to keep track of which ones are coming and which ones are going. The Shamrock Gift Shoppe at 11 E. Baltimore St., a downtown landmark for 11 years, closed in February. Its owners, Richard and Patricia McCracken, decided it was time to leave the day-to-day hustle and bustle, said Leisa McCracken, 30, of Mercersburg, Pa., the McCrackens' daughter-in-law. The shop specialized in Yankee Candles, gifts and collectibles, and also kept a few antiques around for sale, Leisa McCracken said.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Members of the board of directors of the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority Monday made the Defense Department an offer they hope it will not refuse - 243 acres of prime land in the Cumberland Valley Business Park. As part of a strategy to jockey for better position in next year's Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC, process, the board agreed not to market the land, making it available for possible future expansion at the adjacent Letterkenny Army Depot.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Before an ethanol plant opened in Monroe, Wis., in 2002, Mayor Bill Ross said one of the main concerns among members of the community of 10,800 was that it might produce a foul, sulfurous odor. The reality turned out to be quite different, he said. "If you've been around a bakery, that's what it's like," Ross said of the Badger State Ethanol plant. That also was how Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority Executive Director and Franklin County Planning Director Phil Tarquino described the smell.
