REYNOLDSVILLE â€” The Jefferson County-DuBois AVTS Class of 2012 is looking at a different take on an ancient Mayan philosophy that suggests 2012 will mark the end of the world.
â€śThe world is not ending; weâ€™re just taking over,â€ť said class President Karissa Dinger, of Punxsy, as 93 students from the Brockway, Brookville, DuBois and Punxsutawney school districts received their diplomas Thursday night at Jeff Tech.
BROOKVILLE â€” While human services, higher education and basic education may endure significant cuts once the stateâ€™s final budget is approved, the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) is seeing a little relief from the cuts this year.
â€śAll in all, we did OK; we fared OK,â€ť said Eric Bridges, executive director of the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission. â€śThere are still some areas of concern, but at the end of the day, weâ€™ll right-size the organization and do what we have to do, to maintain a high level of service.â€ť
Thursday evening, members of the Punxsutawney Garden Club planted flowers in the first half of the hayracks around town. They will plant the second half whenever new hayracks are placed at the new light posts.
