I-Medical battles back late, advances to finals

July 9, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — After downing Derry in the opening game of the Indiana County Youth League playoffs Sunday afternoon in Punxsutawney, I-Medical traveled to Derry for the second game of the best-of-three series. And in come-from-behind, dramatic fashion, Punxsy's squad clinched a berth to the finals against the Indiana Black Sox, who also won Tuesday, with a 9-7 victory Monday evening.

I-Medical jumped out to a great start in the contest, putting up a three-spot in the opening frame to put the pressure on Derry in its go-or-go-home game.

July 9, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — As has been the case for the last several years, Music in the Park again resumes on the heels of the Groundhog Festival, starting Thursday in Barclay Square and running through Thursday, Aug. 23.

Kicking off the free series for 2012 is the band that kicked off the 2011 series, Midlife Crisis. For the rest of the schedule, see the accompanying box.

Music in the Park was first established a number of years ago by John Serian, who always believed that as long as Punxsy had its own natural setting in which to enjoy music, it would be a shame not to use it.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Contract negotiations between groups representing the Punxsutawney Area School District and the Punxsutawney Area Education Association (PAEA) continue, although the two committees will not meet again with a state mediator until Tuesday, Aug. 7.

“We’re back on track,” he said after Monday’s voting meeting.
