CLARION â The night session and the opening edition of the District IX/IV AAA wrestling championships started Friday, and the foes of the Chucks started to fall one after another.
Punxsy posted a strong first night of action in the district championships held at Clarion Universityâs Tippin Gym.
The Chucks claimed three falls in their opening three bouts and two major decisions in the next two before adding a fourth pin to begin 6-0.
Punxsy finished the preliminary and round I consolations at 7-6 and had only one wrestler not alive for the second day.
The staff of the Punxsutawney Spirit/Jefferson County Neighbors recently completed a community profile and membership directory for the Brookville Area Chamber of Commerce.
Copies were turned over to the chamber on Thursday, along with a donation of $1,000 of the proceeds from their production.

PUNXSUTAWNEY â If you're interested in school safety, then you'll want to attend a community forum dealing with that topic to be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Punxsutawney Area High School Auditorium.
The meeting is a combined effort between the Punxsutawney Area School Board and Punxsutawney Borough Council.
"Following the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, we received numerous phone calls from concerned citizens and parents regarding the district's safety plan," said Dr. Keith Wolfe, Punxsutawney Area School District superintendent.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Ever been âin a pickleâ? Felt like âa laughing stockâ? Looked like a âsorry sightâ?
If you have ever had occasion to use those words â or worse yet, have had someone use them about you â you may not realize you have been involved with the wit and wisdom of William Shakespeare, who is credited with being the man who added those words to the English language.
At Thursday night's Rails to Trails meeting, a $2,000 donation was made by Denny Fetterman, secretary of the Eagles, to the members of the Rails to Trails Association.
This donation is the kick-off for the Capital Campaign Fund Drive for trail maintenance. Accepting the check were (from left): Susan Wolfe, secretary; Matt Taladay, president; Bob Anibaldi, committee member; Tony Bofinger, treasurer; and Nick Gianvito, vice president; and representing the Eagles were Fetterman and Lisa Haught, club manager.
