PUNXSUTAWNEY â Just as the weather is beginning to turn frightful comes the news that PennDOT District 10 Jefferson County Maintenance is ready for Mother Natureâs worst, with salt and anti-skid and snow plows.
The annual PennDOT plow inspection in last month went very well, said Paul Koza Jr., P.E., county maintenance manager.
Everything is ready to go, except for a few trucks that are receiving routine maintenance, Koza said.
All trucks are stationed at the county stockpile locations in Punxsutawney, Brookville, Emerickville, Brockway and Ringgold.
Itâs the battle of titans the world has awaited for more than 100 years, beginning this winter and ending this coming spring.
In this corner, Punxsutawney Phil; in the opposite corner, science.
But Punxsutawney Area Middle School students taking part in a program to track the growth of tulips in various parts of the world â and taking into consideration the onset of spring â believe their hometown hero will emerge victorious.
âThey think they will be right along with Philâ and his Feb. 2 prognostication, whatever it may be, said PAMS fifth-grade teacher Jeff Kuntz.
