Counselor outlines changes to PAHS graduation projects

January 12, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — They may not know it, but today’s freshmen at PAHS are already working toward completion of their senior projects.

Punxsutawney Area High School students will still be required to complete senior projects in order to graduate, but starting with the Class of 2014 — this year’s freshmen — the projects will become more career and community service oriented.

Monday, guidance counselor Emily Cassidy told the Punxsutawney Area School Board that committees met once a month over the past year to revamp the graduation project program.

Montgomery Twp. family escaped fire with their lives

January 12, 2011

MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP — Family members who lost their home in a fire Dec. 26, 2010, on Rock Run Road in Montgomery Township lost everything they owned except their lives, but continue to receive assistance.

Sean Connor, who is the assistant manager at the Punxsutawney Wal-Mart, and his wife Mary, who is a cafeteria worker for the Purchase Line School District, and their youngest daughter Katarina, had just returned home the evening of Dec. 26 when their dog, Ringo, became restless after Sean had gone to bed.

Punxsy Phil teams up with Foursquare for high-tech event

January 12, 2011

HARRISBURG — Punxsutawney Phil and the state Pennsylvania Tourism Office chose an unusual location to announce the latest technological promotion for Groundhog Day 2011: The state Farm Show & Expo.

Maybe it’s not too unusual, however, because last year, Punxsy Phil and tourism officials announced that his prognostication would be sent to his loyal followers via text message.

There won’t be text messages this year, but followers of the Foursquare mobile platform have an opportunity to earn a special PA Groundhog Day badge if they “shout” their current location Feb. 2.
