(AP) - A chance encounter with a customer who's a major Harrisburg philanthropist is paying for the education of a waitress who now works as nurse in a hospital facility that bears the man's name.

NEW YORK (AP) - Even for a 1964 New York World's Fair that celebrated "The World of Tomorrow," Andy Warhol may have been ahead of his time.
