Members dissolve anti-drug coalition

August 9, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy Coalition Against Drugs — formerly the Mayor’s Drug Task Force — announced Monday that it was formally disbanding.

During Monday’s Punxsutawney Borough Council meeting, coalition Secretary Barb Postlewaite said the group was writing the letter to thank council for the use of its chambers for its meetings, and to formally announce that it was dis-banding.

As of July 21, the coalition voted to fold following three-and-a-half years of fighting drugs in the Punxsy area, Postlewaite said.

GOING OUT WITH A BANG!

August 9, 2011

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.
