District: No need for officer

April 10, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Following several weeks of criticism from residents about an alleged hands-off attitude about drugs in the district — specifically Punxsutawney Area High School — the Punxsutawney Area School Board fired back at Tuesday’s meeting.

“I take offense that we are accused of having a drug problem in our schools,” said Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe, also saying that he felt it was unfair to categorize the district that way with no real evidence.

Two injured in Henderson Township house fire

April 10, 2012

HENDERSON TOWNSHIP — The cause of an early-morning fire that destroyed a home at 165 Pine Dr., Henderson Township, is undetermined, according to the Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal.

The fire began at 3:10 a.m. Tuesday in the garage at the home owned by Robert Dominick, said Charles Gross, fire marshal.

The alarm was turned in by a neighbor, and both occupants were able to evacuate the home, which was heavily damaged by the blaze.

Gross said the fire began in the garage, which was completely destroyed in the blaze, thus hindering the investigation.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Saturday, the Punxsutawney Country Club will take a step back in time to an era when mobsters and flappers were the talk of the town.
