PUNXSUTAWNEY — A long-time reporter for The Punxsutawney Spirit has stepped up to become editor of Jefferson County’s only daily newspaper.

Matthew Triponey, a lifelong resident of the Punxsutawney area, said being the editor of a small-town newspaper has its own unique set of challenges and advantages.
