PUNXSUTAWNEY â You're in bed sound asleep when youâre awakened by the beeping of your smoke alarm, and even worse, you also smell smoke.
Sadly, this isn't a dream. Your nightmare has become reality, and your house is on fire.
Hopefully, you'll never need the services of the Punxsutawney Fire Department, but if you do, you can take comfort in the fact that members are well-equipped and trained to handle your emergency, whether it's a house fire, or if you're trapped in your vehicle following an automobile accident.
BROOKVILLE â The Jefferson County History Center in Brookville picked up a new exhibit last Saturday, Sept. 29: âThe Civil War in Pennsylvania.â
It is a traveling exhibit that will be on display until Oct. 27.
While its overarching topic is the Civil War, its focus is a bit more narrow and pertinent to the local community, honing in on the perspective of war-era Western Pennsylvania.
âIt portrays an interesting aspect of Western Pa.âs Civil War,â said Ken Burkett, the director of the History Center.
Members of the Punxsutawney Theatre Arts Guildâs upcoming show, âDaddyâs Girl,â take a break from their rehearsal to pose for a photo.
The show â which opens Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Punxsutawney Area Middle School â is directed by Guild veteran Tracey Young and features a cast of 13 local actors.
