PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” All the little ghosts and goblins will be happy to know that Punxsutawney Borough Council approved a time and date for this yearâ€™s Halloween parade: 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, hosted by the Punxsutawney Fire Department.
The parade will line up near NAPA Auto Parts and once again travel down Union Street, which was determined by Punxsutawney Borough Police as a safer route than closing Mahoning Street â€” which is a state route â€” as had been done in the past.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Students in the Punxsutawney Area School District once again made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on the PSSAs during the 2010-11 school year, the school board learned Monday.
Monday, Richard Galluzzi, the districtâ€™s director of federal programs and curriculum, said students hit proper targets in attendance, graduation and test participation.
In grades three through five, six through eight and nine through 12, students hit all targets, either four-for-four or three-for-three in reading and mathematics.
â€śWe hit every target across the board,â€ť Galluzzi said.
INDIANA â€” Flash mobs are something most people are used to seeing on YouTube or television, or hearing about from a friend, but one local native was fortunate enough to take part in one this summer for a good cause.
While she was working at a childrenâ€™s camp over the summer, Nikki Battestilli, a senior studying theater at IUP, was asked by Laura Jeffry of the Indiana Regional Medical Center, to choreograph a flash mob pertaining to a health- related issue â€” in this case, the seven signs of a heart attack.
