Family ties run deep during the annual PAHS Variety Show

March 28, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It’s strange, the information that may or may not be revealed within the walls of one’s own home.

Weeks ago, after New Year’s Day and before Groundhog Day, PAHS senior Dane Baker successfully auditioned to serve as one of the four emcees — along with Micky DeChurch, Ali Mancuso and Keaton Mohney — for the 2012 Variety Show.

“Both of my parents were very excited,” Baker said. But he didn’t know a very coincidental fact that he shared with his mother, Mary Ann (Pisarcik) Baker.

When she was a PAHS senior, in 1981, she, too served as a Variety Show emcee.

Parent: Bring a resource officer into the schools

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The mother of two daughters who attend school in the Punxsutawney Area School District addressed the board at its committee meeting Wednesday about drug use, bullying and hiring a school district police resource officer.

“The reason I stand before you now is the growing amount of drugs and the safety issue that is on the rise in our school district,” said Georgette Pennington, a concerned parent.
