BROOKVILLE — Despite a valiant effort in the seventh inning, the Brookville Grays fell to the Sykesville Senators, 8-7, Thursday night, giving them the 3-2 series lead in the Federation League finals. One errant inning cost Brookville Game 5 in an otherwise solid defense effort.

"We let that one get away from us; we dropped balls in the outfield early in the game, then later in the game," said Bob McCullough, Grays manager.

Coal, coke histories run deep in Punxsy, surrounding areas

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The coal industry has had its ups and downs over the years, but here in the Punxsutawney area, at one time coal was king.

The history of coal industry in Punxsutawney and western Pennsylvania was the subject of a video presentation followed by a discussion at the Lattimer House hosted Wednesday by the Punxsutawney Area Historical and Genealogical Society.

Shirley Sharpe, Historical Society member, said coal mines originally were like the gold mines out west, where the owner would receive a deed, and the ground and the mineral rites would belong to him.
