Principal: Charges for laptop damages should help curb ‘accidents’

August 20, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — At least one member of the Punxsutawney Area School Board is not buying into the idea that a student who damages one of the high school’s take-home laptop computers should be responsible for financial costs — especially considering the age of the machines.

Board member Penny Pierce was excused from the meeting.

August 20, 2011

BUTLER — He wasn’t there in person, but Punxsutawney Phil was well-represented during last weekend’s first-ever Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival, held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the world’s first Jeep.

Chris Phillips, a Punxsy native now living in Chicora, about nine miles east of Butler, was among the more than 1,100 Jeep owners and drivers seeking to break the Guinness record for the longest Jeep parade.

Amid the souped-up, tricked-out Jeeps in the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival parade, Phillips said he wanted his Jeep — a 2007 Wrangler — to be different from the rest.
