DUBOIS â€” Two legislators have requested that the Pennsylvania Public Utilities Commission (PUC) hold a second hearing regarding the possible change of the 814 area code in western and central Pennsylvania.
State Rep. Matt Gabler, 75th district, and State Sen. Joe Scarnati, 25th District, requested that the PUC hold another public hearing regarding the 814 area code change, which is being discussed due to the exhaustion the available phone numbers in the area code.
The first hearing was poorly attended due to lack of publicity and bad weather.
BROOKVILLE â€” The Jefferson County Salary Board Tuesday approved the creation of the position of county detective.
On the suggestion of District Attorney Jeffrey Burkett, William Guy Felmlee was appointed to that position. Felmlee was a member of the Pennsylvania State Police for more than 25 years, and he spent many of those years in criminal investigation, Burkett said.
"This man is an outstanding criminal investigator," Burkett said. "He is top, top, top, top notch, and I'm very excited to have him."
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Now in its second year, the PAHS Dramatics Club will present its second production, "Aladdin," at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday in the high school auditorium.
Tickets are available at the door, and proceeds go to the club for its current and future productions.
This year's show, adapted by Craig Sodora, follows the club's successful first-ever presentation of "Peter Pan" last spring.
Lisa Good, who co-directed the play and co-advises the club with Shellee Miller, said this year's show is being presented during the winter due to many springtime activities for students.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Juniors Logan Weaver and Daniel Triponey are playing like one of the best scoring guard duos in District IX, and their ability to fill up the stat sheet this season doesn't surprise Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal.
Back when Weaver and Triponey started for the seventh-grade team in 2006-2007, Neal, then Punxsy's junior-varsity coach, noticed just how talented they were.
