Jefferson County Sheriff Carl Gotwald Sr. recently discussed the upcoming sheriff's sale of the Pantall Hotel.
Pick up Friday's edition of The Punxsutawney Spirit for all the details.
(Editorâ€™s note: This piece is one in a series of â€śFamiliar Faces Fridayâ€ť features to be written by Spirit reporter Destiny Pifer. The point of the project will be to highlight a member of the community who may be recognizable to many and tell his or her story. Todayâ€™s familiar face is Mary Ann Kernich.)
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” You may recognize Mary Ann Kernich from the Music in the Park events held every Thursday throughout the summer.
She is a recognizable face throughout town with her volunteer work in the community and through her church.
Members of the classic rock band G3 brought the summerâ€™s Music in the Park series to a close on Thursday evening, playing to a good-sized crowd in Barclay Square.
On Monday, the canopy that has been an integral part of the concert series will come down â€” one of the many signs around town that summer is coming to a close.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Senior night will be special this year for the Punxsutawney Area High School boys' soccer team. Each one is special in its own way â€” if you were involved in an organization in high school, you understand.
But this year's team is driven by the 12th-graders.
They're the seniors who have led the program to a 15-4-1 record, a district title and a 15-5 record in three consecutive years.
You can use the Tomlinism "The standard is the standard" and "The next man is up" if you want, but the senior Chucks will be misssed both on and off the field.
