County eyes axing jury commissioner posts to save money

June 16, 2011

BROOKVILLE — This week, the Jefferson County Commissioners said eliminating the positions of jury commissioner would save the county $12,000.

“Twelve-thousand dollars — that is the savings. That, in and of itself, is enough for me,” commissioner Jim McIntyre said.

The elimination of this position is a statewide movement proposed a few years ago. It has passed in the state House of Representatives and is now in the state Senate.

County Commission Chairman Paul Corbin called the position a “duplication of services.”

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The kickoff of the first-ever “Third Thursday” Festival sponsored by PRIDE began Thursday night, but the weather had something to say about it. But despite the downpour of rain throughout the day, it did not stop local community members and downtown Punxsy businesses from coming out and supporting the event.

Participating businesses offered free hors d’oeuvres, desserts and drinks. Most businesses even promoted a sale on merchandise.

The next “Third Thursday” Festival will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 21, with all festivities being held on Mahoning Street.
