And contrary to popular opinion, its not going anywhere. The truth is AIDS is not dead. It has not gone away; it is multiplying exponentially, said Marlin Barry Snyder, founder of the Susquehana Valley Chapter of the Names Project, an organization dedicated to remembering those who have died from the disease. Snyder was at Hanover High School Friday. On Nov. 18-19, his organization will bring a part of the national AIDS quilt to the school. He spoke to Hanover High teachers about the quilts history and how it can be used to teach students about a disease that threatens them in increasing numbers. Thirty-two percent of all AIDS patients in America are 13-19 year olds. The quilt was started in 1987 in San Francisco by a group of people who wanted to remember NOTICE Tbe advertiser agrees that the publisher tfiaH not be liable for damages 'arising out of errors In advertisements beyond the amomt paid for the space actualy occupied by that portion of the. advertisement In which the error occurred, whether such error Is due to the neglgence of the publisher's employees or otherwise, and there shot be no lability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount paid for such advertisement.

Snyder brought with him Friday a 12 square-foot panel. Each panel features the names of eight victims. The total quilt displays more than 47,000 panels and is more than one mile long. But the panel brought to Hanover High Friday holds a special significance. One of the names on it is that of Matthew Lome Thomas, a 1984 Hanover High graduate who died of AIDS in 1991. His mother, Patricia Thomas, is now the York County representative for the Names project. For her, making Matthews section of the quilt gave her a purpose in the painful months after his death. Matthew loved acting and music, Thomas said. So members of the family stitched musical and theatrical images onto his quilt. His other loves, like cooking and his three cats, are intertwined as well. Family members have included poems and declarations of love in his name. Thomas said the quilt helps her and others get through the pain, because it represents who their loved ones were in , life. Those feelings were expressed by Matthew himself, in a poem he wrote in 1992, several months after he learned of his disease: One day long after I have gone, Fallen from your eye, 1 hope you will remember how much I have loved you; How much I love you still.

Friends may call Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, P.O. Box 550, Westminster, MD 21 158. month, Snyder will bring 1 1 other panels of the quilt. The two-day display will be open to both students and the public. Hanover High Principal John P. Cokefair said teachers will use the opportunity to educate students about the disease and will incorporate it into classes. Anything we can do to save even one student is worth doing, said teacher Greg Boehne. Snyder has particular reason to be dedicated to the cause. His companion, Patrick, died from the disease in 1982 as the result of a blood transfusion. When Patrick contracted the disease, Snyder said, he had more than 130 friends to turn to for support When he buried Patrick several years later, AIDS had already taken all but three of those friends. The other news Snyder brought was equally sobering for local residents. Pennsylvania ranks third in the nation in AIDS deaths. Only two counties in the state have not been touched by the disease. But what about Protease Inhibitors and other drugs that supposedly halt the disease? They work, Snyder said for about 24-30 months. Then the disease clones itself and starts anew. These drugs are effective in prolonging life, but they are not the cure. 1 The AIDS quilt will be in the Hanover High auditorium Nov. 18 from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thank You We would like to Thank everyone U involved in the tragic death of & Kenneth L.

New York. In York, the proposed antique district would extend from the from the Codorus Creek to the Farmers Market. The district could enhance the citys proposed Rail-Trail and mural project to lure customers and tourists downtown. Carver said. Carver does indicated in his report that he would like to do things a little differently in York. While Putnam represents a By PATRICIA POIST-REILLY For The Evening Sun Inspired by a summer visit to a thriving antique district in the town of Putnam, Conn., York Countys top economic developer said he believes its time for York City to get serious about creating its own antique mecca. David Carver says he thinks it should be wedded to the citys other plans to attract tourists to downtown. Carver, president of the York County Industrial Development Corp., has announced that his agency will work with the citys economic developers and Main Street York Inc,, which represents downtown merchants, to come up with a plan to create an antique district on West Market Street west of the Codorus Creek. Carver has released a report entitled A York City Retail Initiative, which points to examples of antique districts in our area, including New Oxford. During the past five years, four antique malls opened in New Oxford in empty and older buildings which has generated considerable vehicular and pedestrian traffic for this small community. Last June, Carver went to Putnam, population about 9,200, and visited the northeastern Connecticut towns bustling antique district has 400 dealers and attracts hundreds of customers and tourists from Providence, R.I., Boston and UBLIC RECORD Hospitals HANOVER HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS Heather J.

I know of no new supporting facilities that have opened as a result of the openings. Why this has not occurred and how to do so brings forth what is the necessary factor required to insure the success of such an undertaking.. contact the Gettysburg State Police at 334-8111. FRIDAY 8:28 a.m. At the intersection of Har-baugh Valley Road and Route 16, a vehicle ran head on into an embankment. Nothing was reported from Hanover Borough, McSherrystown Borough, West Manheim Township, Cumberland Township, State Police of York, Eastern Adams Regional Police, Littlestown Borough, York Spirngs Latimore, Gettysburg Borough, Conewago Township, Penn Township or New Oxford Borough.

American Express counterfeit is a very brilliant color of red and blue. The replica is not very good in quality, with no writing on the back. However, the Visa forgery is very, very good in quality, according to Prager. Visa logos are on both front and back and it is very hard to distinguish the real from a fake. Westminster Sgt. Wehland also reported counterfeit five and $20 bills found in the Westminster, Gamber and Taneytown areas. Maryland State Police describe the bills as very good in quality. State police request that if merchants receive counterfeit bills or cheques, you contact them immediately with as much information as possible about the person passing the bills or cheques.

It is impossible to envision such a proposal becoming successful w ithout such a management system, he said. But just w ho would pay for that manager has yet to be determined. Carver said later. Carver said he hopes to come up with a budget and timetable for the project in the next 90 days. . He said the project could fit in with an idea by A1 Henry, executive director of the William C. Goodridge Business Resource Center, an incubator primarily for minorities and women, to open a another incubator for fledgling retailers. York City officials recently -approved a $50,000 Community Development Block Grant for the Goodridge Center to study that proposal. City officials were intrigued with Henrys idea and said it could be part of their attempt to restore the 200 block of West Market Street, which includes the soon-to-be-closed Swinger's Book Store. The city acquired the Swinger's building last year and launched an effort to revitalize the dilapidated block west of the Codorus Creek bridge. City economic developer Suzanne McConkey said earlier this month the city is studying the possibility of creating a row of unique and specialty shops on West Market Street, similar to those on South Beaver Street. This, she said, would give the city some control on what type of businesses go in there. Atty. Kelley returning to DA's office By MARK SCOLFORO For The Evening Sun Tom Kelley said he didnt spend much time deliberating, when District Attorney Stan Rebert asked him to return to the office and assume a top deputy position once occupied by Christy Fawcett. Tuesday night it was offered to me. I immediately said, I accept the position, said Kelley, 33, who had spent more than five years in the office, mostly as a child-abuse prosecutor, before entering private practice in July. He and Jonelle Harter, a senior prosecutor who is on maternity leave after giving birth to twins, will supervise the offices 15-or-so prosecutors. Its a great opportunity for me, said Kelley, the lone Republican on the York City Council. I really loved being a prosecutor. Im thankful that Stan was willing to put that kind of trust in me. It's going to be a tough job. I have huge shoes to fill. Christy Fawcett was just an impeccable prosecutor. Rebert said he is bringing Kelley back because he is a proven trial lawyer, and theres a need for that, with the loss of Tom originally and then Christy. Hes already shown his abilities. Fawcett recently took a job handling death-penalty cases and appeals for state Attorney General Mike Fisher. Kelley will be the first deputy, of the five trial teams. He will handle some of the high-profile, work-intensive cases, and he will perform some administrative duties, according to Rebert. Harter will be Kelleys top assistant. Another prominent vacancy on Rebert's staff, the first-assistant district attorney, was created Tuesday when John Thompson Jr. was elected judge. Rebert said he hopes to fill that position from within the office. How much Kelley and Harter will earn has not been announced, nor has it been determined exactly when they will assume their new duties.
