PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” "Friday the 13th" is one of the most legendary horror movies out there. If you ask the Chucks, they probably aren't a fan.
When Punxsutawney traveled to DuBois on Friday night, they were stuck in their own horror movie, losing to the Beavers 49-7.
DuBois came out on a mission, coming off a loss to Mifflin County.
For head coach Alan Nichol, all he could do was tip his cap.
UPDATE: Police have issued a release announcing that Novak has been located.
WINSLOW TOWNSHIP â€” DuBois-based Pennsylvania State Police have located Cassandra Lee Novak, 18, who was last seen at her Walls Road residence in Winslow Township at 6 p.m. Friday.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The grieving process is certainly one that can carry on for many years after the loss of a loved one.
It never really, completely goes away, but through the healing power in the process, one can seek comfort in knowing he or she is not alone.
One local woman, Chris Gigliotti, has learned the healing power of grief. In 2009, she suffered the tragic loss of her beloved son, Adam Travis.
Gigliotti said that after his death, she spent a lot of time struggling and searching for "something" to help her deal with that loss.
On Friday, Verizon presented a check for $5,000 to the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center (PWDC) as part of the 2013 Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.
Through the recommendation of Pennsylvania State Rep. Sam Smith, Verizon is proud to partner with PWDC to support programs that empower young people with lifelong learning skills.
