PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Tuesday, Borough Manager Ben White presented Punxsutawney Borough Council with an estimated cost to pave and place new sewage lines along Dinsmore Avenue at half a million dollars.
A couple of months ago, council asked him to move forward with an estimated cost to upgrade Dinsmore Avenue, one of the last two brick covered streets in the borough. The other brick- covered road is Grace Way.
REYNOLDSVILLE â€” Thursday, Dr. J. Stephen Cleghorn staged a little rebellion of his own, but it was an emotional one.
â€śNow I feel empowered by a bond of love,â€ť he said following an event he hosted Thursday on his Paradise Gardens & Farm. â€śNo drill will ever penetrate this land, and Iâ€™m prepared to stand behind that.â€ť
Cleghornâ€™s rebellion came with a declaration without weapons, and as well as with the spirit of his No. 1 confederate â€” his wife, Dr. Lucinda Hart-GonzĂˇlez, who died of cancer in November 2011.
