PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Nearly 50 years of firefighting came to a close for two members of the Lindsey Fire Company, who recently submitted their resignations for the purpose of retirement to Punxsutawney Borough Council.
Frank Davis and Don Ross have decided to call it a career as volunteer firefighters. Both were members of the original scuba team that formed in 1974.
Ross said he became a member of Lindsey in 1962, and was the first in his family to do so.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Jessica Newcome got a jump start on her teaching career as soon as she graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, having majored in early childhood education.
"A friend of mine had called and said there might be a position for an aide for the day care," Newcome said Monday. "Ann (Smith, retired SS.C.D. School principal) hired me right out of college. I called about being an aide, and Ann hired me as the director."
