PUNXSUTAWNEY â With the Korean War commemorating its 60th anniversary July 27, for veteran Richard Bianco, there was only one thing to do â memorialize it in the form of a display in his apartment at Mahoning Towers in Punxsutawney.
âI wanted to do this for a long time,â he said.
â(The Korean War) is âthe forgotten war,ââ he added, borrowing a phrase that is frequently used to describe the event.
When asked if people seemed to know much about the war, he said, âThey donât, but I speak up.â
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Thirty years of day care, and Rona Petroff is still going strong on Church Street in Punxsutawney.
"When I first began taking care of children I really didn't understand what day care was all about," Petroff said, adding that originally she had taken a different job and was then contacted by Child Care Information Services (CCIS) to become a child care giver.
