November 13, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If Steelers kicker Jeff Reed should ever be sidelined with an injury, his back-up could be waiting on a football field in Punxsutawney.

Laney Monroe, a nine-year-old third-grader at SS.C.D., has been playing catch with baseballs, soccer balls, basketballs and footballs ever since she was able to get her hands around one, and now has a chance to display her years of practice by taking part in the eight-to-nine-year-old girls’ bracket in the NFL’s Punt, Pass & Kick program.

PUNXSUTAWNEY —Bells will be ringing throughout Punxsutawney as the holiday fund-raising season was welcomed by the Salvation Army’s Kettle Kick-Off Friday.

This year’s kettle campaign goal is $50,000, Commanding Officer Captain Keith Jache said.

“We’re hoping to reach at least that so we can help people at Christ-mastime and throughout the year,” he said.

The County Market kick-off, which offers a $2 meal that includes a hot dog, soda and bag of chips, will continue today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Despite a valiant effort in last night’s game, the Chucks had the opposite of last year’s win and fell to the Bisons 26-14 in the District IX Class AAA title game.
