The John W. Jenks Masonic Lodge is conducting the second day of the Pennsylvania Masonic Lodge Child Identification Program (CHIP) at the cafeteria of the Punxsutawney Area High School today.
CHIP consists of a still photo and digital video interview, fingerprints and a DNA kit to be completed at home in order to provide parents or guardians with information that can be given to the state police in the event that a child is abducted or missing.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” In case you haven't looked out the window lately, the grass has been growing in your front and back yards, which means it's time to mow.
It also means that it is time for Mary McHenry, Punxsutawney Borough Code Enforcement Officer, to travel around looking for yards that are not mowed and other code violations.
"We give them more than ample time to get it cut," McHenry said, adding that most of the time, those in violation won't cut it until she sends out the notice.
She said rentals aren't typically too bad if there's a tenant in there.
Three 11th-grade students at Punxsutawney Area High School (PAHS) were honored with certificates for doing well in the the new Keystone Exams that were administered for the first time this school year.
