September 4, 2013

This coming Saturday, the 15th annual Groundhog Fall 50K is coming to town. Big Run’s VFW Post 9044 is hosting the race for the third straight year, and post members have completed 96 man hours of work preparing the trails. Pictured here are Tom Johnston, Bob Lott, Jesse Miller, Duane Miller and Randy Kromer, some of the workers near a new obstacle on the course — a six-foot-deep ditch carved by the flooding in June, which will cause extra challenges to the runners this year. The pipe the water used to flow through can even be seen.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Now that everyone is officially back to school throughout the area, the students at Punxsutawney Area High School (PAHS) were given the opportunity to be reunited with their MacBook laptop computers on Wednesday.

The "One to One" computer program is beginning its fifth year at PAHS, said Dave London PAHS principal.

"Since our district received the CFF grant, we moved right into a ‘One to One’ computing program," he said. "I think kids look forward to laptop distribution day more than the first day of school."
