PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A recent rash of burglaries continued in Punxsutawney when sometime late-night Monday or during the early morning hours Tuesday, someone entered and caused damage inside Punxy Philâ€™s Family Restaurant, 116 Indiana St.

Punxsutawney Borough Police Chief Tom Fedigan said local residents have several options in attempting to prevent a burglary from happening at their home or business.
BROOKVILLE â€” A new building, a new start. And a time to dream big.
Jefferson Countyâ€™s own child advocacy center (CAC), Western PA CARES for Kids, has a good reason to celebrate.
Sunday, the center opened the doors to its new facility and welcomed about 100 people to take part in the ceremony.
â€śItâ€™s a dream come true,â€ť Jefferson County District Attorney and Western PA CARES for Kids Board President Jeff Burkett said. â€śWeâ€™ve been dreaming about this basically since 2004. The new facility really gives us the ability to dream big.â€ť
BIG RUN â€” Big Run Council received word at Monday's meeting that the chances of hiring a part-time police officer for the borough are pretty slim.
Big Run Mayor Joe Buterbaugh said that he spoke with Sykesville borough officials, and that the only thing they could help Big Run with is selling the borough a used police cruiser.
Buterbaugh said it's quite expensive to hire an officer.
"We'd be only foolish to think we can afford one," Buterbaugh said, adding that to begin with, the borough would have to pay for the officer to go through approximately 800 hours of training.
