Bruce Breth’s therapy isn’t puzzling at all

March 3, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — For Bruce Breth, life was always on the move while he was employed at Harvey Company in Punxsutawney, as a nitrogen truck driver during his younger years.

Today, however, life has slowed down a bit for Breth, 88, and the walls of his room at Wellington Heights are adorned with 70 finished puzzles. His current work in progress is uncompleted on his table.

Police: Scamming season is here again

March 3, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Scam season appears to be in full swing, as more victims in the Punxsutawney area have reported receiving letters asking them to send money.

Punxsutawney Borough Police Chief Tom Fedigan said his department has received reports of area residents who’ve been scammed through the mail and via telephone.

Fedigan said there’s such a large variety of scams occurring that it’s hard to identify any one in particular.
If someone receives a letter offering a chance to win money, that person should proceed with caution, he said.
