"It's with a heavy heart that I announce that there will be no carnival in Punxsutawney this year," said Tami McFarland, president of the Punxsutawney Fire Department Old Home Week Committee.

She said that, due to the ever-worsening economy and increasing fuel charges, J&J Amusements can no longer afford to travel to Punxsy.
