LOS ANGELES â€” How did Punxsy native Braxton Amundson appear as a contestant on â€śThe Price is Right,â€ť and did he win one of the major showcases on the show?
Well, Amundson believes his vast amounts of swag definitely helped, but due to stipulations by the program, he cannot say yes or no about winning any major showcases, but Punxsy viewers can find out when his episode airs at 11 a.m. Monday on WTAJ-TV (Comcast Channel 18).
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Pizza & Prevention, sponsored by Foxâ€™s Pizza Den, once again set another record for single-day fund-raisers this year.

PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It is a common practice for sports teams, from the high school level to the professional level, to select a Most Valuable Player.
The title of team MVP is the ulitmate honor, as it carries with it the assumed characteristics of leadership, talent and heart all embodied in one award.
Last year, The Punxsutawney Spirit launched its inaugural Fall Sports Male and Female Most Valuable Player awards, and after an overwhelming response, Punxsutawney Area High School athletes were selected as winter and spring sports MVPs, as well.
