BIG RUN — Monday, Big Run Mayor Joe Buterbaugh presented evidence that Big Run Borough Council had agreed in principle many years ago to take care of the road at McClure Cemetery.

Buterbaugh produced a copy of The Punxsutawney Spirit, dated Tuesday, Aug. 17, 1982, which contained a story written by Tom Chandler, in which Bob Buffington of the McClure Cemetery Association agreed to meet council’s requirement to prepare the road for oiling and chipping next spring.
