PENN CAMBRIA Hooray! What a victory over Somerset on November 3rd putting Penn Cambria, Now 6-4, into the playoffs. This was a hard fought game between both teams with Penn Cambria winning 16-14. There were many great efforts on the part of the Penn Cambria players. Sophomore Jake Hurley was a definite stand out and a star of the game as was Mack Behe until he left the game with an injury. Nathan Keagy had a very nice pass reception; other Lilly players including Josh Nadolsky, Peyton Behe and Nathan Przybys were in on a lot of tackles. This was a great home game that was played in near freezing (33 degree) weather. Congratulations to Coach Tony Tomaselli for a very fine effort the past two games. Good Luck in the playoffs against undefeated Richland this Friday.
Congratulation to the Penn Cambria Girls Volley Ball team in their championship win in the District 6 playoffs this past week.
DEERHUNTER Congratulations to Mike Suchta for successfully harvesting an eight point buck on Lilly Mountain last week during archery season. Anyone can shoot a deer with a gun; however, for an archer to down a deer with a bow and arrow it takes both patience and skill.
PHONE BOOK I recently received the Ebensburg area phone book from Verizon. They should be ashamed to put such a fine small print book in their customer’s homes. I can’t read it very well and need a magnifying glass to be sure of what it says. Come on, Verizon-you can do better.
COMING EVENT The Saturday after Thanksgiving will feature the annual Christmas Tree Lighting here in the community. There will also be horse and sleigh rides from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Book a ride at Galls Insurance Agency.

ELECTION I am glad it is over. I was never more fed up with my phone ringing and being a recorded political ad.
OLDTIMER You are an old timer if you remember when Al Green butchered deer for area hunters at his store on Main Street.
