PLAYING THE WAITING GAME

May 4, 2012

Members of the Groundhog Little League's junior league team, Jefferson Grocery, look on from the dugout during a rain delay in what was scheduled to be a 6 p.m. contest with DuBois' Buriak Painting. Unfortunately, looming storm clouds and lightning in the distance forced the game to be postponed to a later date, and the only game the teams were able to play was the waiting game.

May 4, 2012

BROOKVILLE — The count of write-in votes from Jefferson County’s April 24 general election has concluded, with a Republican challenger for the 66th Legislative District claiming 239 write-in votes.

May 4, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It was a beautiful sunny morning at Punxsutawney Area High School the day before the senior prom, and all was well, except for the rear parking lot, where two heavily-damaged vehicles could be seen as the result of the annual mock drunk driving crash.

PAHS’ SADD Club, Punxsutawney Borough Police, Punxsutawney Fire Department and Jefferson County EMS once again presented the pretend fatal traffic accident in which, as the story goes, two students lose their lives in a drunken-driving crash.

After fire, Big Run Carpet reopens

May 4, 2012

BIG RUN — A major fire that destroyed Big Run Carpet June 19, 2011, might have spelled the end to the long-time family-owned business, but thanks to the help of family and friends, the store rose from the ashes with a ribbon-cutting Friday for the new store.

The former building may have been destroyed in the blaze — which was later classified as arson — but not the spirit of the London family and area residents who pitched in to help keep the store open with two small portable buildings, a storage building and a small office, said owner Jeff London.
