PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsutawney Borough Police discovered a burglary that occurred at Lily's Restaurant in the early morning hours on Tuesday while performing security checks.
According to police, the burglary occurred sometime during the early morning hours at Lily's Restaurant along West Mahoning Street, when an unknown actor entered the building through a small window and removed money from the business.
Monday evening, the members of Cub Scout Pack 50 out of Marion Center, accompanied by their families, stopped by The Spiritâ€™s offices to take a tour of the facility.
Spirit Editor Zak Lantz gave the students a tour from front to back and explained the cyclical process of printing a newspaper â€” from advertising to composing to editorial to the pressroom to distribution.
The students asked plenty of good questions, and almost unanimously, their favorite part was seeing the press and learning how it worked.
Itâ€™s that time again for clothing lovers who love a good bargain.
This Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon will be "Free Clothing Days" at the First Church of God.
