PUC seeks public input on 814 issue

August 19, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — While representatives from the telecommunications industry, the state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and the state Office of Consumer Advocate offered views Thursday in a public hearing about proposed changes to the 814 area code, no one from the public did so.

Administrative Law Judge Katrina Dunderdale, who was assigned by the PUC to conduct the public hearings, closed the hearing after about 30 minutes because no one from the public had signed up to testify.

Hard work has Punxsy's hopes high this year

August 19, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The 2011 Punxsutawney girls' golf team is hard at work preparing for its first tournament of the season, the Bolton Tournament in State College Aug. 22, and head coach Katie Irwin likes what she sees so far.

She also knows why she likes what she sees: Hard work by her players to prepare throughout the summer.

"I've seen a lot of work from these girls during the off-season, and it's showing now that we've turned in some scores," she said.

Punxsy lost three seniors from last year's squad, which went 14-3, but eight players will still be returning.
