Despite February thaw, concerns about flash flooding are not major

February 18, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Are you ready to be flooded with warm spring weather?

Thankfully, the recent February thaw has been slow, which helped stem off the quick meltdown that often causes area creeks and streams to overflow their banks.

Punxsutawney Borough Emergency Management Coordinator Charlie Hoeh said that people who live in a flood plain never think about preparing for a flood until the water is rising up the front steps. So the time to prepare is right now.

Late push carries DuBois toward victory over Chucks

February 17, 2011

DUBOIS — Four-straight late victories that totaled 19 team points allowed DuBois to earn a 41-34 victory over the Punxsy wrestling team Thursday night.

The Chucks (12-12) were riding high after Tyler Titus' upset victory by fall at 215 pounds. They jumped ahead 28-22 with that win, but couldn't score again until Kody Young won by forfeit during the final bout of the night.

Unlike last week, when the Chucks received two big wins from freshmen Josh Schuckers and Joel Bowers to beat St. Marys, 34-30, the 103- and 112-pounders were unable to rise up once again.
