Brookville's 12-hit performance ties series

August 4, 2012

REYNOLDSVILLE – "Before I left Brookville I could see that wind whipping and I could see those leaves turning up. That's a storm brewing and the Grays are coming to Reynoldsville," said Bob McCullough to his players before the game.

That storm proved to be too much for the Sykesville Senators as the Grays thundered their way to a 12-hit 9-6 victory in Reynoldsville Friday night.

"We did a good job getting ready for that game, I had guys hitting this afternoon at the cages at home," said McCullough.

Dangerous crash near Cloe Lake results in ‘minor injuries’

August 4, 2012

BELL TOWNSHIP — A Big Run teenager suffered only minor injuries when his vehicle drove off of the roadway at 4:35 a.m. Friday Aug. 3 on Cloe Lake Road.

According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police a 1996 Ford Mustang driven by Justin L. Hasty, 19, Big Run, was traveling north on Cloe Lake Road when he failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway while traveling at a high rate of speed.

Police said Hasty lost control, which caused his vehicle to travel off the east side of the road and strike a large tree with the left side.

Big changes coming to Phil Phest

August 4, 2012

The history of Groundhog Day runs rich in one concept: Fellowship. The origin of the tradition is rooted in a group of men spending a day together on a hunt, and in many ways, the Groundhog Picnic has always been a similar event: Rooted in fellowship and a stag event.

Similar to any tradition, though, evaluation and change are always a good thing, and change is coming to this year's Phil Phest, which will take place Saturday, Sept. 8 from 1 to 9 p.m. at Gobblers Knob.
