Hi It's Jayne Ann Bugda from the "Producer Pod"

     Here's what we are working  on for Eyewitness News for     August 29, 2014. 

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. ~Albert Einstein  (From the Quote Garden)

    High School Football kicks off tonight!
We have a Pep Rally on PA Live! 
Sports Photo Journalist Rich Charneski checking in with some game notes:

Great 8 team #2 is hosting Great 8 team #1 Berwick.   Rich tells me- this game is a rematch of the Triple A District 2 semi-final game- Berwick won 14-13.  Last year Crestwood had two losses all season- to Berwick.    Yes- this will be a very good game.

     Another big game- Great 8 team # 4 Loyalsock is taking on the team with the most wins in Pennsylvania- Mount Carmel.
