BROOKVILLE â€” Informative data collected in 2009 through the Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS) was presented Tuesday by the Clearfield-Jefferson Drug Free Communities Coalition (DFCC) and Jefferson County Children & Youth Services (CYS).
The PAYS is submitted to students in grades six, eight, 10 and 12 every two years. The data was received late last year, and the two agencies have now designed a new program to target the key risk factors.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Today will conclude the submissions for this yearâ€™s Lilâ€™ Mr. and Miss Groundhog. However, today is not too late to register.
To be nominated, the child must be a kindergarten student in the Punxsutawney Area School District, SS.C.D. or the Punxsutawney Christian School. Pictures of the child may be sent to the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center or dropped off during business hours, which are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Jan. 8 in Tucson, Ariz., shocked many people around the world and caused other public officials to possibly be more cautious when they make public appearances.
U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson, who served in the House in Washington with Giffords, said he wonâ€™t allow that incident to stop him from meeting constituents.
