September 12, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area Historical & Genealogical Society looked back on 2011, lauded the efforts of local students helping the organization through senior projects and saluted four recipients of its Awards of Commendation during its annual banquet Saturday at the Lattimer House.

This year’s event took on a different turn than previous ones, as PAHS senior Anna Monyak served as the guest speaker, displaying a PowerPoint presentation of her project, which was a film called “But … Is That It?”

September 12, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney Borough Council learned Monday that poles to be used for the traffic light replacement project at the intersection of North Findley and Pine and Torrence streets have been delivered, and the project should be completed within the next two weeks.

Council President Susan Glessner said it would be interesting to see what these poles look like, since they are identical to the ones set for placement as part of the downtown Punxsutawney traffic signal project.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The battle of the band continues.

Monday, Cheryl Hollis and her daughter, Karah, addressed the Punxsutawney Area School Board during the 10-minute public comment portion of its agenda on the issue of why Karah cannot participate in the PAHS Marching Band.

At issue: Is marching band a curricular or an extra-curricular activity? The Hollises claim it is extra-curricular, citing after-school-hours, preparation and rehearsals, while Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe says it is a graded, curricular activity that is part of concert band.
