BROOKVILLE — Punxsy running back Perry Arrington led his team to victory as he scored two touchdowns, including a 96-yard interception return with 30 seconds left in the game, and the Chucks' ninth-grade squad beat the Brookville Raiders, 12-0 Wednesday night on Brookville's home field.

"(Perry) has had some big plays this year," Punxsy head coach Jason Grusky said following the game. "He's been a leader, and we expect big plays from him, and he delivered again today as he has most of the year."

October 5, 2011

Today marks the beginning of a very important season to me: Hockey season.

Although, I will admit that last week's chilly temperatures and rain/snowy mix came a little too early, it's never too early for hockey season to begin.

Hockey is a special sport for me as I grew up playing the indoor version on roller skates.

Yes, I said roller skates, not those silly in-lines that came along much later, but good old-fashioned roller skates.

The majority of my free time, and the majority of my parents' vacation funds, was poured into this hobby.

BROOKVILLE — If you want to vote in the Nov. 8 general election, but you’re not currently registered, you have only until Tuesday to do so.

In order to vote in any election, you must first be a registered voter. If you’re not, you need to register by Tuesday, according to Karen Lupone, chief clerk for Jefferson County.

How do you know if you need to register?

Lupone said if you are a first-time voter, have recently moved to a different area or changed your name, you may need to register — or re-register — to vote.
