Lady Chucks win a dramatic duel at St. Marys

April 4, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Lady Chucks this year seem to have a flair for the dramatic — especially one Lady Chuck, in particular.

After hitting a pair of buzzer-beating, game-winning shots in her senior campaign for basketball, Alex Magill played a key role in the Lady Chucks' 2-1 win over the St. Marys Lady Dutch Wednesday in St. Marys.

With two outs in the top of the seventh and a runner on third — fellow senior Tori Martin — Magill successfully squeezed Martin home and reached first for just the third Punxsy hit of the game.

House OKs Smith’s bill to trim state Legislature

April 4, 2012

HARRISBURG — The state House voted Wednesday 140-49 to cut its own ranks from 203 to 153, and to reduce the number of senators from 50 to 38.

“I believe that by reducing the size the House, it will make the legislative process more efficient, because members would communicate better and understand the other person’s problem,” said Speaker of the House Sam Smith (R-Jefferson/Armstrong/Indiana), who authored the bill. “And I think that will create better legislation at the end of the day.”

With 253 members, the Pennsylvania General Assembly is the second-largest in the country.
