New deacon ordained at Ss. Peter & Paul

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Had Steven White’s mail route not taken him to Sutton Street, he may not have discovered a spiritual path that led to his recent ordination as a deacon in the Byzantine Catholic Church.

“I was a mailman, and I parked out front (of the church),” White, of Juneau, said. “He saw me and said, ‘Do you want to see our restoration?’” 

Officers qualify for AR weapons usage

December 22, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Several area police officers recently spent a day qualifying on handguns, shotguns and assault rifles (ARs) at the Punxsutawney Borough Police firing range in Young Township.

Sheriff and range master Carl Gotwald Sr. said his job as range master individually gives instructions to the shooters.

“We try to limit it to five to six individuals shooting at one time per instructor during daylight hours,” he said. For night shoots at the firing range, they try to have one instructor for every three shooters for more control.

Due to weather conditions school has been cancelled for the Punxsutawney Area School District and SS.C.D.
