PUNXSUTAWNEY â The many public service announcements on television featuring the sad faces of abused and neglected animals that bring people to tears are heartbreaking and hard to miss.
In an effort to end animal abuse, a newly formed group, Amend Pa. Humane Enforcement (APHE), has begun to hold workshops throughout Pennsylvania in order to educate the public on why amendments are neededÂ to the way current animal anti-cruelty laws are enforced.Â

BIG RUN â Big Run Borough Council dismissed its code enforcement officer and hired a new one during its monthly meeting.
Council President Nick Lantz called for an executive session near the close of last Monday's meeting to discuss the status of code enforcement officer David Rouch.
Following an executive discussion by council members, the meeting reconvened, and Lantz announced that council would replace Rouch due to his unavailability. Council then approved a motion to relieve Rouch of his duties and send him a certified letter informing him of his dismissal.
