PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” As has been the case for the last several years, Music in the Park again resumes on the heels of the Groundhog Festival, starting Thursday in Barclay Square and running through Thursday, Aug. 23.
Kicking off the free series for 2012 is the band that kicked off the 2011 series, Midlife Crisis. For the rest of the schedule, see the accompanying box.
Music in the Park was first established a number of years ago by John Serian, who always believed that as long as Punxsy had its own natural setting in which to enjoy music, it would be a shame not to use it.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Monday, Punxsutawney Borough Council President Larry Chenoga said he has been working on a plan on how to better enforce borough codes that have to do with property maintenance.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Contract negotiations between groups representing the Punxsutawney Area School District and the Punxsutawney Area Education Association (PAEA) continue, although the two committees will not meet again with a state mediator until Tuesday, Aug. 7.
Thatâ€™s simply because that date was the one that best suited representatives for both groups and the mediator, according to Gary Conrad, president of the Punxsutawney Area School Board.
â€śWeâ€™re back on track,â€ť he said after Mondayâ€™s voting meeting.
