PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A joint meeting of the Punxsutawney Area School Board's Building and Maintenance and Athletic committees was held Tuesday, and expansion of the weight room at Punxsutawney Area High School into what has been a maintenance garage was discussed.
Jim Baun, chair of Building and Maintenance, said that the Punxsutawney Booster Club was willing to pay to expand and upgrade the present weight room facility.

BROOKVILLE â€” If youâ€™re interested in benefiting two good causes and maybe having a pleasant day out while youâ€™re at it, you might have your chance on March 2 at the Punxsutawney Memorial Library, which will be hosting Brookville author L.A. Adamson for a book signing that will raise money to help the library and sheltered animals.
Adamson, whose first name is Lisa, is the author of â€śSoggypaw Siberian Huskies,â€ť a chapter book that tells the tale of a husky named Czarah as she tries to assemble a sled dog team to fulfill her ownerâ€™s dream of conquering the Great Pennsylvania Sled Dog Race.
