PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” As it happens over time, some things begin to wear down and need to be refurbished. The same can be said about some of the "Phantastic Phils!" throughout Punxsy.
Recently, "Fireman Phil," on display in front of the Central Fire Department at the Mahoning East Civic Center, was taken into the shop for restoration by one of its original co-creators, Nance Finley.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Library Days continue from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this week, with Ice Cream Day today at Fezell's County Market in the Groundhog Plaza.
The event is a week-long fund-raiser for the Punxsutawney Memorial Library.
"With all the budget cuts of other libraries, we like to do everything we can to keep our library open," library board Vice-President Barbara Burkett said.
