Comcast’s digital upgrade is here

January 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY —There’s bad news and good news for basic and standard Comcast cable customers today.

The bad news is, if you did not upgrade to digital cable already, you may have awoke this morning to find that half of your channels disappeared overnight.

The good news is, it’s easy to get them back with a digital upgrade.

Bob Grove, public relations and community affairs director for Comcast Cable Keystone Region, said Comcast’s digital upgrade, “A World of More,” has come to fruition.

Chucks endure another close loss to Dutch

January 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Being competitive hasn't been enough for the Punxsy boys' basketball team, as even though it kept things close with District IX League-leading St. Marys Tuesday night, the Chucks suffered their 17th-straight league loss, 52-45.

Punxsy (4-7, 0-4 District IX League) trailed by just two points with 1:28 left before St. Marys (10-3, 4-1) inbounded the ball to Jimmy Werner, who quickly finished under the basket. Werner's hoop started the Flying Dutchmen's game-winning 5-0 run that finished off the Chucks.

BROOKVILLE — With the dual meet victory already secured, it would have been easy for the Raiders' Logan Stout to continue to take his lumps as DuBois 215-pounder Landon Hannah continued to earn points seemingly at will.

Someone forgot to tell Stout that the match was over.

Trailing 9-2 in the third period, Stout pulled off an improbable maneuver to gain control of the match before pinning Hannah in a stunner, highlighting an all-around impressive night of wrestling for Brookville, as the Raiders earned a 52-21 win over DuBois in front of the home crowd.
