Punxsy breaks out the bats early, holds on to beat DuBois, 11-10

June 28, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The John J. Fisher Post 62 Punxsy American Legion team scored 10 of its 11 runs in the first two innings and held off a late rally by DuBois to win, 11-10, Tuesday at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.

Punxsy's offensive outburst was just what manager Mike Dickey wanted to see from his team with the playoffs just around the corner.

"Hitting from top to bottom, that was refreshing to see," Dickey said. "Of course, we know they're not throwing the guys they will in the playoffs, but regardless, it gives us some confidence."

A home for all animals at Godot

June 28, 2011

My love for animals has grown tremendously over the past year. Last summer, I spent three months in Washington, D.C., interning at Double R Productions. I had the experience to complete a civil service project while I was there. For this project, I found an animal shelter, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, based out of Washington.

Lucky Dog is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them.
