PUNXSUTAWNEY — Despite the fact that there won't be a carnival this year for the Punxsutawney Fire Department's Old Home Week, the Punxsutawney Groundhog Festival Committee and Tim Krise are pitching in to help.

Scott Depp, chief of Central Fire Department and a member of the Old Home Week Committee, said two days will be added to the schedule to help out the fire department, since the committee was unable to obtain a carnival service to replace J&J Amusements' services.
