PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Gov. Tom Corbett professed his early spring preferences just prior to Punxsutawney Phil's 126th annual prognostication early Thursday morning at Gobbler's Knob, but as history has shown, the Seer of Seer relies on nothing else except than his own instinct.
The result, as read by Vice President Mike Johnston: "As I look at the crowd of Gobbler's Knob, many shadows do I see; so six more weeks of winter it must be."
When asked if he was pleased with Punxsy Phil's prognostication, Corbett replied, "No. Now we've got to get PennDOT ready."
While there's plenty of room for improvement, it appears Kane schools are doing a good job in meeting the educational needs of the community.
This point was made Thursday during the presentation of progress reports by the school district's three building principals-- Linda Lorenzo, elementary school; Jim Fryzlewicz, middle school; and Jeff Kepler, high school.
The school board's Curriculum Committee heard the reports during its public meeting in the conference room at the District Administration Office along Hemlock Avenue. No one from the public attended the open forum.
