Mulberry Square provides residents with unique Christmas wish

December 22, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — On a silent winter’s night, with only the soft jingle of silver bells to disturb the stillness, Punxsutawney native Betty Daughenbaugh would set out along Sprankle Mills Road on a horse-drawn sled. That cherished childhood memory of a lovely, snow-white sleigh ride is a recollection that Daughenbaugh has revisited often in her 90 years. It is one she was certain was meant to remain only a memory as she is now just a decade shy of a century.

Nevertheless, this year, all Daughenbaugh really wanted for Christmas was a trip down memory lane.

Playground association completes goal, builds playground

December 22, 2010

ROSSITER — After many years of trying, the Rossiter Playground Association completed its goal this year of constructing a playground at the Rossiter Ball Field.

John Mack, president of the association, said Mizerock donated money and a stone for the historical marker that was placed in Rossiter, and then encouraged the group to construct a playground in the village.

Weaver's clutch free throws lift Punxsy

December 22, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — With the game knotted at 40 and two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Punxsy's Logan Weaver stepped to the free throw line for a chance to become the hero for the Chucks.

That's exactly what he did.

Weaver knocked down the front end of a one-and-one and drilled the second shot, and the Chucks picked up an exciting 42-40 victory over Harmony Wednesday night in Punxsy.

The Chucks were looking to drive the ball into the paint when they took over possession with seven seconds remaining in the game, and were fouled along the baseline with four seconds on the clock.
