STRATTANVILLE â€” Football and bad weather go together like peanut butter and jelly. Fortunately for the Punxsy Chucks, they have been able to avoid any poor weather so far this season. When Punxsy traveled to Clarion-Limestone Friday night, it experienced a 30-minute weather delay due to lightning. For the C-L Lions, it would just be the calm before the storm, as the Chucks ran their way to a 28-12 win to improve their record to 3-3 on the season.
BELL TOWNSHIP â€” Look up in the sky! Itâ€™s a bird! It's a plane! Actually, it is a plane, as Punxsutawney Airport Awareness Day is back this Sunday.
Larry Straitiff, flight instructor for Centerline Aviation, said it's time for the annual event, which offers airplane rides on Sunday to check out the fall foliage.
