Punxsutawney — Tuesday evening was an illuminative one at the Lattimer House of the Punxsutawney Area Historical & Genealogical Society.

The event was called "Native American Lifeways," and the speaker was Todd "Ghost in the Head" Johnson.

His presentation was very intriguing, because it covered Native American life here in Punxsy and other places in the Eastern Woodlands area.

For the full story on Ghost's presentation, pick up Friday's edition of The Spirit.
