Raiders suffer tough defeat to Gremlins

October 15, 2011

KARNS CITY — With 23 seconds left on the clock, the Brookville Raiders attempted their first field goal of the season. Cam Yard stepped up to the line, and his kick was just a few inches low, allowing Karns City to block it.

The missed field goal sent the Raiders home packing with a 24-21 loss Friday night in Karns City.

In hindsight, Brookville head coach Chris Dworek said he thought he made the right call on fourth down with the game on the line.

October 15, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Don’t blink, or you’ll miss what could be the best weekend to see fall foliage in this part of western Pennsylvania.
Most trees are in full color with deep reds and bright yellows prevailing, said Eric Leister, a meteorologist with AccuWeather in State College.

This weekend will be better than next weekend, as there’s the possibility of more leaves dropping due to windy weather conditions today and tomorrow, Leister said.

Fiddling since age five, Julia Voris is still winning, defending titles

PUNXSUTAWNEY — What could be better than being the fiddle champion of your home state? Being the fiddle champion of three states: Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio.

After starting to play the fiddle at age five, Julia Voris, now 13, is a four-time champion in Pennsylvania alone. This would be an impressive feat for any musician, let alone one who is not even old enough to drive. It is hard to look around the Voris household and not see a trophy with her name on it.
