Fire company resignations revealed
by Peggie Williams

During the April supervisors meeting, Franklin Township supervisor Mike Ryan grilled Citizens Hose Company No. 1's Fire Chief Schott McClintock about changes in his organization. There were rumors going around the community that long-time manager of the ambulance department, Traci Cook, had resigned along with a substantial number of her staff.
But McClintock had very few answers for Ryan and the other supervisors. "This all took place at a board of directors meeting, and I wasn't there," McClintock said. He explained that he wasn't present at the meeting because it was a closed meeting to deal with personnel issues. He told supervisors that assistant manager of that department, Keith Heckert, was now acting manager and was already interviewing to fill the open positions.

Northern rebounds with four straight wins
by Andy Sandrik

There's no doubt about it: Last week's 3-0 loss to Mid-Penn Capital Division rival West Perry was a tough pill to swallow for the Northern Baseball team. Brian Robinson's Polar Bears, however, haven't let that loss get to them. Northern, since getting shut out by the Mustangs, has rolled up 33 runs in their last four games, all wins.

With a 3-2 win over host Mechanicsburg last Wednesday, the Northern H.S. Boys Volleyball team continues to display their toughness early this season. Games scores were: 27-25, 25-27, 23-25, 25-23, and 15-12. "It was a hard fought night and every game was anyone's game, it would just depend on who made less errors and who could capitalize on mistakes," said coach Debbie Rutter.
