Cecilia McCann gardens low to the ground, close to the earth

September 20, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It’s a manner of gardening that works just fine for Cecilia (Wehrle) McCann, but at times, it may alarm passersby.

Given the fact that her eyesight isn’t what it used to be, she gets low to the ground, generally on her knees or lower, for a better look at the flowers she’s tending at her Liberty Street home.

“It’s hard on my legs, so I just get on the ground,” Mrs. McCann — also known as Aunt Deed, a derivative of her childhood nickname, Dee Dee Dumpling — said Tuesday. “I can’t stand up that long, and I can’t see that far anyway.”

Historic West End building set for demolition this week

September 20, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Over the years, there have been many high-profile fires that have heavily damaged or destroyed historic buildings in Punxsutawney, but a fire that destroyed a building Feb. 16 has taken some more of history with it.

This time, it’s a part of Clayville history.

There was the Dec. 24, 1971, fire that destroyed the Jordan Furniture Company, Freelee’s Store and other buildings along East Mahoning and North Jefferson streets, as well as a Nov. 16, 1982, fire on Thanksgiving at the Findley Hotel.
