Clearfield's Picard twirls no-hitter over Punxsy

May 1, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In a tale of two days, the Punxsy bats produced enough hits on Tuesday for two days and that is exactly what happened.

The free-flowing 15-hit parade enjoyed in Bradford did not travel back home against Clearfield for the Punxsy softball squad.

The Lady Bison's Heather Picard gave up four walks but not a single hit to no-hit the Lady Chucks in a 2-0 victory in Punxsutawney.

In fact, after walking Punxsy's Ashley Bacha with one out in the home third, Ricard retired the next 14 home hitters to finish out the contest.

HOLLIDAYSBURG — In an all-around performance, the Punxsy Chucks dominated both Bellefonte and host Hollidaysburg on Tuesday in track and field.

The Chucks took care of the Raiders, 94-56, and the home Golden Tigers, 93-57, for the tri-meet sweep.

Punxsy earned the top spot in 13 of the 18 events for the pair of going away victories.

"We didn't know what to expect," admitted Chucks head coach John Smith. "We had big performances again by Dylan Lettie, Nate Ward and Kevin Hughes. All in all it was a good effort."

Local youth pastor among group that publishes ‘99 Things’ book for guys

May 1, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Many guys, including teenage boys, are known for thinking they know everything, but in reality most know very little about living their lives, which is why the book "99 Things Every Guy Should Know" that was co-written by a local youth pastor has become a popular read.

"In culture world, teenage guys learn what it is to be a man mostly from their friends, who don't have a clue either," said Mike Hammer, youth pastor at First Church of God in Punxsutawney.

Hammer co-wrote the book with fellow youth pastors Jeffrey Wallace and Matty McCage.
