PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After 12 years as a member of Punxsutawney Borough Council, President Susan Glessner resigned Friday as president and as a member of council, effective immediately.
Glessner, who had two years left on her term, said the reason she decided to resign at this time is because with the new council coming in, it would be a good time for her to move on so the incoming council will have the chance to start fresh.
Glessner said she was originally approached to join council by current Councilman William Spencer, and she was appointed in 2000 when Jim Infantino resigned his seat.
BROOKVILLE â€” Sasha Young grew up listening to a police scanner.
So it seemed only natural when she followed in the footsteps of her family members and became a fifth-generation firefighter.
But that's not the only hat she wears.
Three to four times a week, she puts on a headset a little different from her firefighting helmet and assumes the role of a 911 dispatcher.
