The Juniata County School District is the recipient of a significant community donation.

Thompsontown Amvets Post 122 presented $10,000 to the district’s cafeteria fund during the board of directors’ meeting Jan. 19.

The group gets to choose between veterans and youth to help out in the community.

This time, they decided to help youth.

The donation provides food for the schools, therefore benefiting students throughout the whole county.


Emergency crews across the Juniata Valley responded to multiple crashes Monday afternoon.

Around 4:15 p.m. temperatures dropped below freezing and rain turned to sleet causing roads to become slick.

Many of the roads at the time, according to police, were yet to be treated. In the span of just 30 minute to an hour, crashes erupted throughout Mifflin and Juniata counties.

According to scanner reports, Mifflin County emergency officials responded to five different crashes, while at least three crashes were reported in Juniata County.
