PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” So many turn to music to help lift their spirits when theyâ€™re having a rough day. So, when a student from the Punxsutawney Area Middle School, Colin Wineberg, â€¨fell ill, several local musicians decided to put their talents to use raising money to help Winebergâ€™s cause.
Event organizer Mike Krach, a music teacher in the Punxsutawney Area School District, said Colin is a 7th-grade student in the district who is in need of a kidney transplant. When Wineberg fell ill this past summer rather suddenly, Krach said a chronic kidney disease was discovered.
HYDE â€” Despite every no-contest prediction for the Friday night football sub-regional playoff, the Punxsy Chucks scored 0the most points in seven weeks against the undefeated Clearfield Bison to give the host all it could handle.
Clearfield, though, had the answer to the battle-tough Punxsy team to take away the hard-fought 38-18 victory.
Trailing 24-0 after one play in the second half, the Chucks gained their stride with the game's next two scoring drives.
