BROOKVILLE â€” It was a difficult day for the Brookville Grays, as they struggled against the Rossiter Miners before eventually losing Wednesday night in Federation League play.
Brookville fell behind 5-0 in the third inning before it attempted to stage a comeback. The Grays were able to cut the lead to two with a strong third, but it proved to be not enough.
The Miners went on to win it 6-4, improving their record to 5-5, while Brookville fell to 6-4.
Brookville manager Bob McCullough said the Grays' six-day break affected his team.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Tom Poore was convinced that the 1944 Punxsutawney High School class ring that his father found near West Palm Beach, Fla., in the early 1970s belonged to Blair Richards.
The only person who wasnâ€™t convinced that the ring was his, was Blair Richards.
â€śI thought it was a scam,â€ť Richards said Wednesday evening, just a few hours after Poore drove all the way from Roseland, Fla., to return the ring to him. â€śHe called me a year ago, and I didnâ€™t believe him.â€ť
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsutawney Borough Council discussed the proposed Sawmill Run bridge replacement Monday, with a consensus that closing areas of West Mahoning Street completely for three months was a better option than dealing with 10 temporary traffic signals for nine months.
Public Works Chairman Roger Steele said the bridge replacement will take place during the 2012 construction season.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” With a newly-renovated childrenâ€™s section, the Punxsutawney Memorial Library is ready to begin its summer reading program this week.
Through the efforts of Director Coral Ellshoff, new furniture has replaced disintegrating items that had been used in the library since the early 1970s.
â€śThe older furniture was original to the library when it was built in 1974,â€ť she said. â€śIt had served us really well, but it had started to show its age because this is a really well-used area of the library.â€ť
