JVs win third of last four, improve to 9-5 this season
DUBOIS â The Punxsutawney-DuBois rivalry has eclipsed decades, and if there is one thing a fan of either squad can expect, it's a close, rugged contest between the teams every time they meet.
Although the Lady Chucks and Lady Beavers basketball teams found themselves at the bottom of the District-IX standings entering Thursday night's contest in DuBois, both squads came out anxious to earn a victory in the saga's latest chapter.
And the Lady Chucks did just that with a 33-25 victory over the Lady Beavers.
PUNXSUTAWNEY âAfter a rocky start this season, Punxsy's ninth-grade boys' basketball team has picked up the pace and earned a second-consecutive victory over Brookville, 37-28, Monday afternoon in Punxsutawney.
Punxsy jumped out to a 13-2 lead in the first quarter and never looked back to improve its record to 4-8 in 2011-12.
Defense: Jurors must also consider prison, not only death
BROOKVILLE â While District Attorney Jeffrey Burkett told the jury that it was âjustâ in finding Steven P. Rebert guilty in the 2010 shooting deaths of Wayne and Victoria Shugar, defense attorney Michael Marshall asked the jury to also find a âjustâ verdict during the penalty phase Thursday.
âAgain, render a just verdict, and choose not to put Steven to death,â he said.
BROOKVILLE â As the penalty phase for Steven P. Rebert began Thursday â two days after he was found guilty of killing Wayne and Victoria Shugar, both 61, in their Coal Tipple Road, Brockway residence in April 2010 â District Attorney Jeffrey Burkett reminded the jury that itâs not all about whether it sends Rebert to prison for the rest of his life, or it sentences him to death.
The phase during which the jury explored Rebertâs innocence or guilt is over: The jury found him guilty of killing the Shugars, Burkett said, âand now, itâs not just about Steven Rebert anymore.
BROOKVILLE â It might just have been the best kept secret in Brookville.
But as AGLogic continues to serve more than a million users a day from its office space on Main Street, Brookville, its presence canât be kept secret any longer.
Last January, when AGLogic developed its first app â swackett (sweater, jacket or coat?) â founder and director C. Scott Gilbert never imagined it would grow into the phenomenon it is today.
