Phil’s home receives new look at library

January 11, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Gobbler’s Knob is best known as Punxsutawney Phil’s home worldwide Feb. 2, but as everyone knows, his true home is in what has been known as the Groundhog Zoo in the Punxsutawney Memorial Library.

But recently, Groundhog Club Inner Circle president Bill Deeley said that Phil’s home in the library has undergone some much-needed renovations — as well as a new name.

“We replaced the burgundy canopy on Phil’s home that said ‘Groundhog Zoo’ with a green canopy that says ‘Phil Burrow’ on it,” Deeley said.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Former Punxsutawney Borough Police officer Sean Weaver extended an olive branch in the form of a settlement to the members of Punxs-utawney Borough Council during Monday’s monthly meeting.

In August 2010, council did not offer Weaver and Pat Renwick full-time police employment at the end of their probationary periods. But during its Sept. 13 meeting, council hired Renwick but not Weaver.

Monday, Weaver spoke to council regarding a lawsuit he filed against the borough for not hiring him full-time.
