Punxsy strong on both sides, picks up dual win over Raiders

April 3, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — On another perfect day for a track meet weather-wise, Punxsy hosted the boys' track teams from Altoona and Brookville, and despite being out-powered by the Lions, 128-22, Punxsy picked up a dual win over the Raiders, 98.5-51.5.

While the team score didn't look so good against Altoona, Punxsy head coach John Smith said their well-tuned team overshadowed a lot of individual performances for the Chucks.

Chucks picking up the pace, down Bison

April 2, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsy and Clearfield's pitching staffs combined for 17 walks, and Punxsy head coach Mike Dickey said after the game, "It wasn't a pretty one." But the Chucks did what they needed to in order to pick up a 12-6 victory over the Bison's baseball team Monday evening in Punxsutawney.

Punxsy's offense was productive, and the Chucks took advantage of a few well-timed errors by the Bison, including two attempted pickoff plays which led to Punxsy runs, to put up their 12 runs.

School district may have to use fund balance for budget

April 2, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area School Board held a budget workshop Monday to discuss possible budget cuts in order to save money in the next year’s budget.

Instead of cuts, the board learned from Business Manager Susan Robertson that the district will possibly have to dip into its fund balance in order to finish the school year with a balanced budget, saying projections for expenses this year will probably outweigh the revenue.
She said how much to move from the fund balance depends on what happens between now and the end of the fiscal year.
