Rita M. Eberl, 95, of 1151 Looker Mountain Trail, Rixford, died Monday, Jan. 10, 2011 at Bradford Regional Medical Center after a brief illness.
She was born Sept. 24, 1915, in St. Marys, daughter of the late Joseph and Gertrude Schreiber Hammer.

The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch basketball team used a strong second half to defeat the DuBois Area Beavers by a 64-49 score last night at the SMAHS Dutch Oven.
The Beavers held a 27-23 lead at the half. The Dutch were able to outscore DuBois by a 41-22 margin in the second half of the contest.
â€śI didnâ€™t think pressure bothered them and after the first quarter they had a substantial lead,â€ť said St. Marys coach Mark Guido. â€śWe really thought at halftime that we needed to put pressure on them and play our style of game.â€ť
