May 21 draws closer as faithful await

March 25, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Richard Peirce won’t take credit for the idea to use his 1991 Cadillac DeVille to bring a message from God to people everywhere.
“God put this idea in my mind,” he said.

And if you haven’t seen the vehicle, you’re not looking hard enough.

With yellow lettering emblazoned against the car’s maroon body color, the message is clear and startling: Judgment Day is Saturday, May 21, 2011 — eight weeks from today.

Demolition set to begin for new Grace Place

March 25, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The fences are up, funding has been approved, and the demolition of the existing buildings is set to make way for the construction of Grace Place, a 24-unit housing complex for moderate-income seniors.

Tim Spence, a member of the Jefferson Area Lutheran Social Ministry (JALSM), said the $6.5 million project will be constructed at the corner of Pine and Gilpin streets on the site of the former Parente’s Pool Hall, directly across from First English Lutheran Church.

JALSM is constructing the apartment complex in partnership with TREK Development of Pittsburgh.
