With the Groundhog Little League softball tournament and the 15- and 16-year old VFW Teener League All-Star state tournament concluding this past weekend, the book is officially closed on baseball and softball for the summer. Now, Punxsy sports fans and parents can take a breather, but not for too long. Punxsy's fall sports practices begin next week, and regular season games are scheduled to begin Aug. 22. To conclude the summer season, Punxsy went out with a bang, claiming two titles in the three classes it competed in at the GLL softball tournament.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Canâ€™t find the Punxsutawney Memorial Libary and borough offices from the back parking lot of the Mahoning East Civic Center? Youâ€™re not alone.

Library Director Coral Ellshoff said there are numerous complaints from people who have difficulty in locating the libraryâ€™s entrance from the rear parking area.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Punxsutawney Area School District is among five districts receiving accolades again from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for its successful use and integration of technology in its curriculum.

Wolfe said that out of Penn-sylvaniaâ€™s 200 school districts, Punxsy was one of only five chosen for the documentaries about its 21st Century
