QUEST FOR D-IX SINGLES TITLE PUT ON HOLD

May 7, 2012

Punxsy boys' tennis players Michael Blose (left photo) and Tim Pearce (right photo), pictured here returning volleys while playing together at No. 1 doubles last Wednesday against Clearfield in Punxsutawney, were each supposed to take their shots at a District IX singles title Monday in DuBois. Unfortunately for all competitors, rain postponed the event to Thursday morning. The Chucks' baseball game scheduled for the afternoon against State College was also postponed due to thunderstorms in the area.

At 75, Buterbaugh has served as Big Run mayor for three decades

May 7, 2012

BIG RUN — If there's anyone who has been as consistent as the Big Run Peepers, it's Joe Buterbaugh, who has been the mayor of Big Run for the last 30 years and is currently the longest-serving mayor in Jefferson County following the death of Worthville Mayor Forest L. Mauer in 2009.

"I first became the mayor in 1982, and me and the Big Run War Memorial building still look basically the same," Buterbaugh laughed.
