PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Even though her experience took place 70 years ago, Holocaust survivor Shulamit Bastackyâ€™s message to youngsters and others isnâ€™t unlike that of anti-bullying campaigns today.

PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” PAMS AmeriCorps teacher Christine Curtisâ€™ interest in the Holocaust as a history major turned into not only a valuable lesson for her students, but a massive project for others from which to learn.

BROOKVILLE â€” At the age of 104, Edith Altman is Jefferson Countyâ€™s oldest resident.
She earned the recognition over a Reynoldsville man by only a few months, and celebrated her long life with family and friends Wednesday afternoon at Jefferson Manor in Brookville.
â€śItâ€™s wonderful,â€ť her daughter, Amy Slocum said. â€śItâ€™s super. Itâ€™s great to be able to get together. We donâ€™t do it often enough. This is a celebration of life.â€ť
