A home for all animals at Godot

June 28, 2011

My love for animals has grown tremendously over the past year. Last summer, I spent three months in Washington, D.C., interning at Double R Productions. I had the experience to complete a civil service project while I was there. For this project, I found an animal shelter, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, based out of Washington.

Lucky Dog is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them.

New Spirit book offers updated history of Groundhog Day

June 27, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — More than six months of planning, day-to-day research and organization has finally come to a fulfilling completion with the recent production of Phil’s 125th Birthday Celebration book, "1886-2011: Groundhog Day, 125 Years" created by The Punxsutawney Spirit.

Annual Old Home Week Celebration starts tonight

June 27, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — "Someday when I grow up, I'm going to run off and join the carnival," has been a threat said by many children over the years when arguing with their parents.

Some kids actually attempted to follow through with that threat, but there are some children who were born into the carnival lifestyle, such as Tabby Fain of Mayo, Fla., who owns and operates the fried dough and funnel cake stand on the J&J Amusement midway today through Saturday during the Punxsutawney Fire Department's Old Home Week Celebration.

Atcheson's walk-off pushes Punxsy into final

June 27, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — After Brookville scored two runs to tie the score in the top of the sixth, Punxsy's McKenzie Atcheson hit a walk-off single with two outs on a bang-bang play at first base to drive in Sam Satterlee and give Punxsy a 10-9 win in Little League softball All-Star action Monday night in Punxsutawney.

Punxsy's next game will be against DuBois, who sent Punxsy to the losers' bracket with an 11-0 win Saturday. The rematch will be played Wednesday night in DuBois.

DiPietro, Tyger power Punxsy past St. Marys, 5-0

June 27, 2011

ST. MARYS — Joey DiPietro threw 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and Jacob Tyger hit a two-run home run during the Punxsy Little League baseball All-Stars' 5-0 tournament-opening victory Monday night at St. Marys.

DiPietro surrendered just two hits, Punxsy didn't commit an error, and Punxsy's five hits came from four players during a total team effort.

THE WALK TALK TEN

June 27, 2011

1. I didn't get a chance to mention this last week, but the teams that Punxsy's baseball and softball teams lost to in the PIAA playoffs — Northern York for baseball, Valley for softball — both won a state title. For the Lady Chucks, that's three-straight years they were eliminated by the eventual state champion, and if you count their 2006 state title game defeat, that's four times in six years. Sometimes having bad luck schedule-wise can lead to your season ending sooner than expected.
