YOUNG TOWNSHIP â€” Monday, police identified a Reynoldsville man as the victim in Sundayâ€™s fatal crash at the intersection of Route 536 and Route 36 in Young Township.
According to Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police, Gary Brian Travis, 48, Reynoldsville, was operating a 2006 Toyota Tacoma when he failed to stop at a posted stop sign on Route 536 and pulled out in front of a 2007 International tractor-trailer driven by Fredrick Rose, 55, Fort Wayne, Ind., which was traveling south on Route 36.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Punxsutawney Senior Center isnâ€™t gone; itâ€™s just moved somewhere else nearby.
The building that housed the center was demolished last week to accommodate the construction of Grace Place, and the center is now located in the basement of the former Grube Hospital boiler room.
The centerâ€™s director, Tracy Miller, said she loves the new space, which has been open for two weeks and offers advantages over the former center.
BROOKVILLE â€” At the Jefferson County Jail Inspection-Intermediate Punishment Board meeting Monday, Jefferson County Jail Warden Tom Elbel asked the board to review some policies that must be updated.
According to Elbel, via a union contract, a committee meets several times a year to review polices to see where the jail is lacking and where it is not.
The committee met last week. Elbel believes that many revisions need to be made.
But because there are so many, he is asking the board to review them by next monthâ€™s meeting date, with the hope of voting on them Aug. 22.
