Need weather apparel info? There’s an app for that — from Brookville

January 27, 2012

BROOKVILLE — It might just have been the best kept secret in Brookville.
But as AGLogic continues to serve more than a million users a day from its office space on Main Street, Brookville, its presence can’t be kept secret any longer.

Last January, when AGLogic developed its first app — swackett (sweater, jacket or coat?) — founder and director C. Scott Gilbert never imagined it would grow into the phenomenon it is today.

Chucks battle back, need OT in close win

January 26, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Not every win goes exactly as planned. Wednesday night was one of those victories for the Chucks basketball team, which hosted Keystone and squeezed by the Panthers, 50-47, in overtime to improve to 10-4 this season.

Punxsy head coach Dirk Neal said after the game that he knew from the beginning his team had to jump on Keystone or the Panthers would be dangerous if allowed to hang around.

The Zak Zone

January 26, 2012

For as long as I can remember, there are two men I could have been speaking of when I simply called someone Coach: My former hockey coach Doc Snyder and Joe Paterno.

This week, the world lost one of those men in the same manner I lost one of my other greatest mentors a year-and-a-half prior when my pap's battle with lung cancer came to a close.

Since I was a young lad, I have always respected and even loved JoePa. From the beginning, I was a PSU fan because Dad was one, and it didn't take me long to realize Coach was a man worth respecting.

The numbers can be quite deceiving

January 25, 2012

Punxsy picks up win, but struggles on the mat

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Although some follow the old adage, "The numbers never lie," Tuesday night's wrestling match between the Chucks and the Clarion Bobcats proved to be a counterexample to the theory, with the Bobcats falling 30-21 to Punxsy despite only losing one match on the mat.

Marred by injuries, Clarion's squad dressed just five grapplers Tuesday, and four of the five earned victories.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Over the weekend, the town of Punxsutawney — more specifically the Punxsutawney Area Community Center and SS.C.D. — hosted 14 different sixth-grade basketball teams, both boys' and girls' for an annual tournament.

Four different Punxsutaw- ney teams participated, and others traveled from Marion Center, Brookville, Penns Manor and as far away as Butler to participate.

A synopsis of the Punxsy teams' games follows:

DA: The blood cries out for guilty verdict; jury hears it

BROOKVILLE — In his closing statement of Steven P. Rebert’s double murder trial Tuesday, District Attorney Jeffery Burkett invoked the voice of one of the victims, Wayne Shugar, and asked that the jury hear that voice, as well.

“The blood of Wayne Shugar cries out in this courtroom,” Burkett said, citing evidence that showed four spots of Shugar’s blood on the bottom of Rebert’s work boots.

“Your DNA is the content of your person: It’s responsible for your eye color, your personality, your height,” he said.

Defense: What did you learn from prosecution’s case?

January 25, 2012

BROOKVILLE — During his closing arguments in the seventh day of Steven P. Rebert’s double homicide trial, defense attorney and public defender John Ingros told the jury that it has seen more than 300 exhibits and heard testimony about the victims’ kitchen, knickknacks on the counter, the locations of “every door and window,” the yard, where the vehicles were parked and even an incomplete bedroom on the second floor of their home.

But, Ingros asked, “Are you any closer to helping you decide” Rebert’s innocence or guilt. “What did you really learn?
