Deeley invites Obama, but Obama postpones PSU trip

February 1, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The invitation was there, but now the trip is postponed.

So much for having President Barack Obama as a guest at Groundhog Day 2011.

After reports last week that Obama would visit Penn State the same day as Groundhog Day, Inner Circle President Bill Deeley said Monday he extended an invitation to the president through U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson’s office.

“I said, ‘Fax, or e-mail or call and invite Barack Obama,’” Deeley said. “He’s going to be in State College, so why not come and do Groundhog Day day with us.”

Chucks finish Clearfield with 19-4 fourth

February 1, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy boys' basketball team found a way to finish Monday night.

Behind a defense that wouldn't quit and an offense that was able to penetrate Clearfield's zone defense late in the game, the Chucks (7-9) won their third-straight contest by beating the Bisons, 49-32.

Two former District IX League foes played as if they were still league rivals, as high intensity play ensued. Clearfield (4-12) may compete against mostly District VI opponents now, but the two squads played with an enthusiasm of a playoff game.

Brookville avenges prior loss during victory

February 1, 2011

BROOKVILLE— Brookville girls' basketball head coach Mark Powell knew how important the Lady Raiders' game was Monday night at home against Keystone.

Brookville had lost its last four games and had its hands full with defending Keystone's preseason All-District IX player Morgan Johnson. Also, Brookville lost to Keystone 45-42 the first time these teams met Dec. 11 in the championship game of the Brookville Tip-off Tournament.

Johnson scored 19, but Brookville (11-5) kept Keystone (12-4) from rebounding well en route to a 59-54 win.
