Bald Eagle Area 2011 Commencement Address June 8, 2011

~ BEA Class President Lance Williamson I’ve never really seen myself doing this, so I had no idea what to write. To be honest, this speech could be very good or the worst in Bald Eagle history. I will say it may very well be one of the shortest. First, I would like to congratulate each of you; we made it and now we are finally free to pay taxes, do our own laundry, and accumulate massive debt in college. When graduation would creep into my mind throughout my days in school, I was under the belief that it would never come. Now that graduation is here another thought keeps creeping into my head, where did the time go? The time has flown by and quite frankly the only thing I won’t miss is waking up at 6 a.m., but even that doesn’t really change for the better because now we have to wake up and go to work or college and we will be doing it mostly on our own. I have no idea what I’ll do without my carpool buddy Cassondra Ross in the morning, or what I’ll do when I don’t see my best friends in the whole world every day. There are so many memories that all of us will never forget; I’ll miss it. I’ll miss all of it. I’ve been trying to figure out why I’m going away to college, basically on my own, and the only reason that comes close to explaining this question is that we have spent 12 years preparing ourselves for this moment and we would being doing an injustice to ourselves if we don’t go become the best we can be. The time I have spent here has shown me who I am and given me the tools to explore and conquer the world’s speed bumps, and for that I am forever thankful. I will also be forever thankful for being able to experience these years of school with all of you. I couldn’t have imagined spending these years with a better group of people. I am not fond of every memory I have made here, but I am fond of the countless hours I have spent here with all of you. I have not, nor will I ever, regret any decision that I have made here at Bald Eagle, because all of those decisions have made me into the person I am today. I am very proud of who I am and will always be proud to say I came from Bald Eagle. I would like to now thank all of you for sharing this most memorable day with me and I wish nothing but the best for all of you. Class President Lance Williamson Thank you.

Bellefonte’s Class of 2011 Celebrates Article & photos by Brian Baney

BELLEFONTE – Bellefonte Area High School sent off another 229 graduates to their destiny on Monday, June 13. Pomp and circumstance was in high gear as faculty lined the field at Roger’s Stadium to applaud the students on their accomplishment. The weather was beautiful with cool temperatures, blue skies and a pleasant breeze. The fine weather helped to fill the bleachers to standing room only with family and friends. After the Pledge of Allegiance, the Bellefonte Band performed with inspiration, the Star Spangled Banner and the Alma Mater. Class President, Bradley Grieb, welcomed the Class of 2011 and parents, family, and friends. Reminding the soon-to-be grads of the years gone by with his words from their eight grade year, “We are all building blocks, if one falls, we all fall.” Mr. Grieb introduced the next speaker, Class Valedictorian, Daniel Cetnar. Daniel spoke of all those who helped along their path, “We had help from the teachers, administration, staff and even from the community. That was evident at the awards ceremony where $77,000 was awarded in scholarships.” He continued by saying how it is time to pay their debt by moving on and achieving their goals, inspiring others along the way. Class of 2011 salutatorian, Brianna Wendt said, “I can remember when we all came together in sixth grade as awkward teens. We are the last class who experienced the renovations and know truly what a great school this is. We have learned to respect each other and I wish you all the very best in life. Brianna introduced the next speaker, Interim Superintendent, Dr John DiNunzio. Dr. DiNunzio’s address included having the entire student body turn and face the bleachers and applaud their parents, saying, “I want you to look your parents in the eye and show them your appreciation by clapping for all they have done for you.”

Daniel Cetnar took the stage again to introduce long time Bellefonte High School Principle, Ann Hutcheson. Principal Hutcheson, survived a long battle with cancer, which touched the hearts of many of her students. Ms. Hutcheson has been an incredible role model for the many students she has seen graduate from Bellefonte High School. Now, after serving in the education field for 35 years, Ms Hutcheson is retiring. Ms. Hutcheson said, “You will need to have wisdom, courage and compassion as you move through your life. If you have all three, you will make an impact on the lives of others. Focus on the positive in your life. What you focus on will only increase it. By focusing on the positive you will get positive results. Make a difference in our world, your world.” Along with the 229 graduates, the survivors of the Bellefonte High School Class of 1961 were in attendance. Five students of the Class of 2011 presented their grandparents in the Class of 1961 with flowers. When it was all said and done, the pomp and circumstance tossed aside, the caps were ceremonially tossed high in the air. Some caps were tossed tentatively, with grad’s fearing not finding theirs – as I remember doing many years ago. My congratulations to the Bellefonte Class of 2011. I know many of you and have even changed the diapers of one of you, who I won’t mention by name. You have all made us proud over the years, and I for one cannot wait to see what the future brings for you. Remember to count your many blessings and thank your God for them. Reach out and touch the hearts of many along life’s path. God bless the class of 2011! Please see The Gazette Web site and Facebook page for all of Brian Baney’s photos from the Bellefonte Graduation.

Class of 2011 President, Claude Witmer, from the Gabe Neiderer welcomes class of 1961 gives advice classmates and audience. to the new graduates.

Penns Valley Area High School held its annual commencement on Friday, June 10, at the school athletic stadium. The class of 111 seniors took the walk across the platform to receive their diplomas, marking a major milestone in their journey of life. Earlier threatening rainstorms politely skirted the area, producing not one drop of rain to spoil the occasion. Honoring a recently established tradition, members of the Penns Valley High School class of 1961 stepped onto the field and took their seats. The Penns Valley Alumni Association has been inviting alumni from the class that graduated 50 years before the current class. The class of 2011 entered next, with each student depositing a flower in a large vase in memory of fellow student Eric Henry, who had passed away. Although gone, he was not forgotten on this momentous night. The National Anthem and the Penns Valley Alma Mater were sung, then class of 2011 president, Gabe Neiderer welcomed the audience and classmates. He thanked the Penns Valley community for their help and support in the students’ lives. He thanked the teachers and school administrators for their help and for making many good memories. He ended his remarks by saying “In life, don’t let the party get the best of you – you get the best of the party.” A choir of class of 2011 members sang the song For Good, followed by a selection from the Gingersnaps, a male quartet of seniors. Penns Valley Schools Superintendent, Brian Griffith offered his heartfelt congratulations to the graduation seniors, then introduced Claude Witmer, the president of the class of 1961. Mr. Witmer advised the class of 2011 to “not waste time deciding what you’re going to do. Don’t run in place for a couple years deciding which direction in life you’re going to take.” His closing remark was “Make sure you choose a profession or career which you really enjoy, because if you do that, you will never have to work a day in your lives.” Secondary Principal, Jacquelyn Martin introduced the two class Valedictorians, Kevin Montminy and Kerry Snyder, who

each spoke to the crowd. Kevin Montminy said that “High school is a platform that we are about to jump off of into whatever we may want to pursue. This jump doesn’t have to be a complete blind jump of faith. We have a base that we’ve established through the years at Penns Valley, and it’s now our chance to build on this and make life what we want it to be.” He quoted poet Robert Frost: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on.” Kerry Snyder quoted several writers and artists, including Andy Warhol: “They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” She said that she and her classmates could not afford to waste time as they face the challenges of the world including the environment, foreign affairs and the economy. She encouraged her fellow graduates to “use the time you have to make a difference in this world.” Jacquelyn Martin also recognized senior Michelle Kuzma for not missing one day of school from seventh through 12th grades – an amazing feat! Finally, the moment had come! Penns Valley teacher Sarah Farrant called the seniors’ names, and one by one, they ascended the platform, and received their diplomas, accompanied by much applause, and a few hoots and hollers from family, friends, and well-wishers. When all had received their diplomas, and were officially declared graduates, class of 2011 members broke out the Silly String, an air horn, and even a vuvuzela (stadium horn) to celebrate. The band struck up the Naval Sea Cadet March recessional music, and the graduates left their seats and lined up along the south fence of the stadium. On cue, 111 hats flew high into the air in traditional celebration! Friends and families poured onto the field for about a thousand hugs, handshakes, and photos. It was truly a night to remember. It will be the talk of future class reunions, and perhaps 50 years from now, this class will return to this field as honored guests, offering sage wisdom to the graduating class of 2061. We congratulate the Penns Valley class of 2011, and we wish them well.

for a study with young people. One of the best known parables is probably The Good Samaritan. In Dr. Faulkner’s book, a man who works at Wal-Mart is traveling to Wa sh i ng ton, D.C. when his car starts to sputter. Pulling over to the side of the road, he is trying to fix the problem when a group of young men come up to him, offering to help. Instead of helping, they beat him and take his wallet and watch. They drive off, leaving the man too injured to stand.

Soon a car stops; the driver is a doctor but he is afraid to get involved. The publicity may hurt his career and there is always the fear of a law suit, so he drives on. Moments pass and another car slows down, but drives on because he thinks that it might be a trap, plus he is scheduled to teach a class on criminal law at John Hopkins that evening. T h e third car stops, calls 911 for an ambulance, and follows to the nearby hospital. He tells the receptionist to see that the man gets the

best of care and if there is no insurance, he would be back to pay all bills. The young man was a Muslim immigrant. He was a student and had no extra money, but when he told his fellow students the situation, they helped. The stories in this book are simple, much as the original stories were, and carry the same message as the originals. This makes the book particularly suitable for a study group. Jesus’ Parables in Today’s Language is available as an electronic book only. Copies can be obtained from Dr. Faulkner at jef3@psu.edu.

SCAHS Student Uses Artistic Talent to Enhance Gardens By Tiffany Woodall

When State College Area High School students began brainstorming senior projects, Kristen Van Tilburg had one major criterion: to make a difference. “I wanted to do a project that would help the community, not just do a project to get it done with,” said Van Tilburg, who recently wrapped up her project of tagging plants in the gardens of Centre Crest Nursing Home in Bellefonte. She started in March 2010 by photographing each plant as it bloomed. Once she knew what the plants looked like, she collected information about them. She then made signs to identify each plant, which included a photo and nametag. Throughout the process she met with Penn State Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners to verify the information she had gathered and to make sure her resultant signs were in agreement with what they had envisioned for the gardens. Fran Nuhfer is a master gardener of four years who helped to sponsor Van Tilburg’s project. Nuhfer volunteers at Centre Crest to provide weekly garden programs for residents, which have included making applesauce, composting, and decorating pumpkins. “They like to get their hands in the dirt,” Nuhfer said about the residents. The purpose of organizing garden programs is to promote an interest in gardening, provide another aspect of stimulation and build a “can-do” attitude. Van Tilburg’s signs have been used to create a Bingo game for residents and will soon be used to create “Old Weed,” a spin off of “Old Maid.” “In this time of life, [residents] have lost so much. They need something, and gardening is that thing that nurtures t h e m , provides them a way to be c r e a t i v e ,” said Nuhfer. It seems that Van Tilburg achieved her goal in helping the community through her project. “I really like seeing the results,” she said, “seeing that everything’s blooming for the second year and I can put my signs in. It’ll be good to know that

Nita-Nee Kennel Club Invites Dog Lovers Home Nursing Agency Raises Funds to Four-Day Dog Show for Community Health Needs  The Second Annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Valley Clusterâ&#x20AC;? STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Nita-Nee Kennel Club is pleased to announce the second annual Happy Valley Cluster, a four-day extravaganza of dog shows and obedience and rally trials. Presented in partnership with the Chambersburg Area Kennel Club, the event will take place July 21 to 24 from 9 a.m. to about 3 p.m. at the Grange Fairgrounds in Centre Hall. Hundreds of dogs will compete for championship points, the coveted Best in Show and High in Trial trophies, and obedience and rally titles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in buying a puppy, this is the perfect opportunity to see dozens of dog breeds up close and personal. More importantly, you can talk to their owners about breed characteristics, grooming requirements, and health issues,â&#x20AC;? according to show co-chair Bonnie Kustanbauter. She continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the reasons dogs find themselves in shelters is because prospective owners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their homework and are unprepared for the realities of dog ownership.â&#x20AC;?   The shows are free and

open to the public. In lieu of admission and parking fees, spectators and exhibitors are asked to bring donations of canned and dry dog food. More and more dogs and their owners are being victimized by current economic conditions, and consequently, central Pennsylvania food banks have put out a call for dog food donations. The Nita-Nee Kennel Club is spearheading the effort to keep local food bank shelves filled for dogs in need. Donations can be dropped off at the catalog sales table. Kustanbauter notes that a donation is NOT required for admission.

Established in 1970, the Nita-Nee Kennel Club is an AKC-recognized club, whose members are committed to the advancement and welfare of all dogs. Previous community service projects include a photo booth for Special Olympics and the donation of pet oxygen masks to Centre County fire departments. More information on the club can be found at www.nnkc. org. For more information, please Bonnie Kustanbauter (814) 355-5259.

Sweet Treats & Music at the Lemont Strawberry Festival Article & photos by Karen Dabney

LEMONT – Despite the humid weather and a brief rain shower, approximately 700 strawberry lovers flocked to the Lemont Village Green to attend the 30th Annual Strawberry Festival on Saturday, June 11. The family-oriented fundraiser featured two local bands, children’s activities, and fresh strawberry shortcake. The first Strawberry Festival was held in June 1981. One of the organizers, Sue Smith, said, “We started small, picking the strawberries ourselves, and holding the festival at the Spring Creek Presbyterian Church.” From that modest beginning, the event has expanded to fill the Lemont Village Green, attracting local residents and even some attendees from other states. The event’s signature dessert, strawberry shortcake, featured fresh local berries, local ice cream and homemade cakes. Smith said, “We used 176 quarts of strawberries from Reuben Peachey of Belleville, cakes by 38 local bakers, and eleven tubs of Meyer Dairy ice cream.” Jude and Paul Simpson of the Centre Region Bicycle Coalition made strawberry and ice cream smoothies for participants using a bicycle-powered blender they constructed for $100. They said a retail model would cost $3,000. The blender, attached to the back fender of the bicycle, was powered by a repositioned bicycle chain as Paul pedaled. To protect onlookers from the moving chain beside the blender, he installed a chain guard made from a transparent plastic car headlight. His wife, Jude, said the blender can also make salsa and margaritas. Members of the Art Alliance of Central PA offered a variety of children’s activities, including tempera painting on easels, sculpting in clay, and face painting. Young artists Josselyn and Jayla Nau created colorful paintings with assistance from their mother, Julie Nau. “They love to paint,” she said. Between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., High Horse Farm and Pottery of Pine Grover Mills provided very popular children’s pony rides

Band members included Eileen Christman on electric fiddle, bass, and keyboards, and Richard Plut on drums. Kevin Fagley and Tom Mallouk played guitar and bass. Their songs included Taking Care of Business, What if God was One of Us?, and If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band). Fagley said, “This is a great place to play. We love Lemont.” State College singer/ Attendees at the Strawberry songwriter Ellen Shultz and Festival enjoyed a relaxing her band played during the evening with friends, listening second half of the festival. to live music and enjoying The group specialized in strawberry shortcake and folksy, acoustic music with strawberry smoothies.

Edible Plants & Flowers Can Mix Beautifully Member of the Penn State Master Gardeners of Centre County Extension The joys of gardening become even better with edible plants in the garden. A wide range of options are available such as vegetables, fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and herbs. The most popular option is mixing vegetable plants among flowers. Plant a few tomato plants among marigolds. In early spring, plant a few pansies in a container along with lettuce. Or tuck some lettuce, radishes, beets, and spinach near daffodils. These greens will hide the daffodil leaves after they are finished blooming. Perhaps include a cherry tomato plant such as “Sun Gold” in a window box or hanging basket. Try growing a tomato plant in an upside-down hanging container. “Rainbow” chard adds interest to any area in the garden. Experiment and grow some Asian greens or kale in the garden. Don’t think rows. Mix and match colors and textures of flowers and vegetables to create a stunning effect. Try broccoli beside red salvia. Most vegetables need between six and eight hours of direct sun each day. Leafy veggies will grow well with less sun, such as four to six hours per day. The first vegetable of spring is asparagus. Asparagus is a long-lived perennial plant often lasting 15 years or longer. Choose a location carefully because it is going to be there for some time. It will take three years before spears can be cut. Another long-lived plant is rhubarb. This very winter-hardy perennial is drought tolerant. Rhubarb grows best in fertile, well-drained soil that is high in organic matter. A couple plants will supply many pies later. No herbicides near ring bulbs and these plants. Plant Rhubarb with sp ffodil and tulip A fruit or nut tree it will hide the spent da time. om can be used in the landleaves after blo scape to provide shade or as an accent tree in the garden, and also becomes a food source. Consider dwarf versions and often two fruit trees are needed for pollination. Strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry bushes are another option. By the second or third year, these bushes should be in full production. Pruning is necessary after the first year and blueberries need acid soil with pH below 5.5. Netting is recommended to keep birds away from the blueberries. Herbs add interesting textures and colors in a garden and are often rich in fragrance. Locate the herbs near the kitchen so they are easy and convenient for use. Perennial herbs,

Fran’s early garden starts out with spring onions and leaf lettuce, along with perennial columbine and primrose – pretty as well as practical. such as chives, oregano, sage, and thyme, should be located in a separate area to avoid tilling them up in the spring. A “contained” area will also keep these herbs from spreading throughout the garden. Beware of the mints! These will become invasive. Instead of growing spearmints and peppermints etc. directly in the garden, grow the plants in containers to limit spreading. Plant annual herbs such as parsley, dill and fennel in the garden and often they will reseed the following spring. Basil and cilantro will need to be planted each year. Perennial herbs that are not hardy in zone 6 are rosemary and sometimes lavender. Bring them indoors in the fall to a cool, sunny location in your home. Two lavender cultivars that are usually hardy in zone 6 are Munstead and Hidcote. The best joy of having an edible landscape is harvesting and eating your produce. Bon Appetit!

Kiwanis Gets Dirty for Charity

HOPE Fund Hosts Festival of Hope

OLD FORT – To what lengths will people go to help a charity in Penns Valley? I mean, it’s one thing to give monetary donations or attend a spaghetti supper or a chicken barbecue, but how many folks are willing to literally get “down and dirty” to help others? As it turns out, quite a few. The Penns Valley Kiwanis Club sponsored its third annual Mud Volleyball Tournament on Saturday, June 11, at the Centre Hall American Legion, located at Old Fort. Last year’s event saw just four teams battle it out, but this year a total of 10 teams signed up for an epic battle in the mud. Teams from the Penns Valley area, as well as two from State College, paid their $100 entry fee, in hopes of winning the Olympic-style prize ribbons, and taking home the bragging rights for a year. Teams with names like Mudbusters, Salamanders, Filthy Mud Bones, Six Packs, Westerly Parkway Wrecking Balls, Brush Mountain Mud Skippers, and others were present, as was a mostly female team (and one guy) called PMS. No, it’s not what you think; they said it stands for Pretty Much Sucks! Penns Valley High School Phys. Ed. teacher, Carol Fultz served as referee, perched on scaffolding at mid-court, safely away from all but the nastiest splashing dives into the slime by players. The tournament was run in double-elimination format, so each team had to lose twice to be eliminated. One by one, the teams were eliminated until just two teams were left. The Westerly Parkway Wrecking Balls, and the Filthy Mud Bones teams both entered the final match undefeated, which meant that one of them had to win twice to claim the top prize. After two wins over the Wrecking Balls, the Filthy Mud Bones, composed mainly of members of the State College High School volleyball team, took home the first place ribbons and several pounds of Penns Valley soil on their clothes and bodies! The Wrecking Balls took second place, and the Salamanders, an American Legion team, took third. Between matches, many players took advantage of an opportunity to be literally hosed down with water from the Centre Hall Fire Company’s tanker number four. The firemen had earlier helped make the muddy court by pumping in about 2,200 gallons of water. Food, drinks, and souvenir T-shirts

Flag Day and Flag Retirement Ceremonies – Pennsylvania Military Museum, Boalsburg

By Brian E. Bassett It seems only fitting that the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the USA, State College, was instrumental in organizing the 2011 Flag Day celebration which was held Tuesday evening, June 14, in front of the Pennsylvania Military Museum, Boalsburg. It was a beautiful evening for the ceremonies: warm enough to be comfortable, with a cool breeze. The BPOE was joined by officers and members of State College American Legion Post 245 and Pine Grove Mills VFW Post 5825. Other participants included the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, State College Police, Nittany Nights, and Battery “B.” The Elks Grand Lodge first resolved June 14, 1907 as Flag Day. It adopted mandatory observance of the occasion by every Lodge in 1911; and petitioned President Woodrow Wilson to recognize the Order’s observance of Flag Day for its patriotic expression. However, Flag Day was not officially established until 1949 when President (and loyal Elks member) Harry Truman proclaimed June 14 as a national day of observance to honor the symbol of our great country. The Continental Congress replaced the British symbols of the Grand Union flag with a design containing a circle of 13 white stars in on a blue field and 13 red and white stripes –one for each state on June 14, 1777. (For a short while it had 15 stripes, eventually returning to 13.) It is commonly believed that this flag was made by the Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross, an official flag maker for the Pennsylvania Navy; and she determined that the stars would have five, rather than six points. Congress requested, in 1966, that the President issue an annual proclamation designating the week of June 14 as National Flag Week. It was suggested that he call on US government officials to display the flag of the United States on all government buildings on Flag Day and to encourage US residents to observe Flag Day – the June 14, 1777 anniversary of the Continental Congress’ adoption

Members of Boy Scout Troop #370 played a part in the presentation of the history of the U.S. flag

CENTRE HALL – The final tally at Dog Jog 2011 at the Grange Fairgrounds is something other pet charities would drool over! The Pets Come First event attracted 247 runners/walkers and 163 dogs. They raised $15,500 at the April 30 event.  

Boalsburg Flag-Retirement Detail of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States. Nicknamed, “Old Glory” or “Star-Spangled Banner,” the American flag’s appearance has changed over the centuries. It now boasts 13 equal horizontal stripes beginning and ending with red, separated with white, with a blue rectangle in the upper left-hand corner bearing 50 white, five-pointed stars. The 50 stars represent the 50 United States and the 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies. Elks members performed as masterof-ceremonies, handled the introductory exercises, and directed the gala event which included the scouts parading each form of the American Flag to the podium for all to see. David Harry spoke about the history of our Flag; George Olson gave a dynamic response; and a patriotic address, including a moving bit of poetry, was given with aplomb by guest speaker, Dr. Charles Hosler. Speakers for the State College Legion were Rich Seifert, Gerry Thompson, Brian Greene and Ron Quinn. Color guard members were Bob James, Allen Metheny, Bill Klucher, Karen Reed, Ernie Harpster and Joe Fye. The Flag-retirement detail included John Hammond, Lex Hammond, Mariah Selvaggi and Brian Bassett (visiting Post 520 commander, Alexandria); and was directed by Sergeant-at-Arms, Ray Hartman. Mary Aiello played TAPS on the Bugle. Attendees enjoyed listening to and singing along with patriotic songs performed by the Nittany Nights and Battery “B” which included America (My Country tis of Thee), You’re a Grand Old Flag, Stars and Stripes Forever, God Bless America, America the Beautiful, and The Star-Spangled Banner. As presenters, participants and guests departed from the grounds, conversations were positive and cheerful – rife with patriotic thoughts and memories. Demonstration of pride and hope for the future bore testimony to the poignant, moving ceremony.

23rd Annual

Father’s Day Cruisin’ Bellefonte Style By Dave Provan PR, Bellefonte Cruise Committee The 23rd Annual Historic Bellefonte Cruise and Car show is here. Who would believe that a group of cruisers (motorcycle and car) talking about such an event 23 years ago late one night would have turned into the event that it has? The original idea, spawned by Bellefonte resident Jack Houser, is now the largest cruise and car show in Central Pennsylvania. In fact, it is the only show boasting “Open Cruise” time for the general public; a sock hop; professionally judged cars, trucks and motorcycles, and a Closed Show Participant Cruise all in one event. And while it is indeed unfortunate that Jack Houser is no longer with us to see what “The Cruise” has become, the cruise committee is confident he would absolutely love it. This awesome event is organized by a committee of 10 chaired by local businessman, Pat McCool, for the sole purpose of cruising whatever you bring, providing entertainment at the huge street “hop,” displaying beautiful cars, trucks, and motorcycles, then parading the show cars for the public to view. After all the expenses for the event are tallied, what is left goes right back to the Bellefonte Community. The committee is part of a larger organization, Historic Bellefonte Incorporated (HBI), having a 501c3 non profit status. HBI is the same umbrella organization that helps organize the Bellefonte Arts and Crafts Fair, Big Spring Festival, Victorian Christmas and other community events. The 23rd Annual Historic Bellefonte Cruise Car, Truck and Motorcycle show is today and Saturday – Friday June 17 and Saturday June 18. The event kicks off Friday evening June 17th with an “Open to the Public Cruise” through downtown Bellefonte from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. – just like it used to be! Following the cruise, from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m., there will be a Sock Hop with various contests (dance, and outfit/’50’s attire) on the

Weekend 2011 Photos of the 2010 Bellefonte Cruise by Cecil R. Houser

Diamond in Bellefonte featuring DJs from WOWY spinning original ’50’s and ’60’s hits. In addition, the Central PA group Your Dad’s Friends [including The Gazette’s own Don Bedell] will be on hand to play your favorite ’50’s and ’60’s hits live – for double the fun. Saturday June 18’s activities include the car, truck and motorcycle show with registration from 7 a.m. to noon. Vehicles will be on display until 5 p.m. with live radio entertainment provided by WOWY 97.1. From 11 A.M. until 5 P.M. it will be D.J. Ray Gephart playing ’50’s, ’60’s, ’70’s and ’80’s tunes. Continuing this year is the Children’s Corral where children ages 6 thru 10 can display their “rides” and receive a certificate of participation. The Car Show awards are presented from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. followed by a Closed Cruise for all who participated in the show, ending at 7:30 p.m. Free parking and shuttle bus service into town is available at Bellefonte Area High School on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Judging of all vehicles is provided by GS Grafina Car Shows Inc. of Carlisle Productions. This highly efficient professional group brings experts in all fields of automotive and motorcycle technology to review and judge the merits and authenticity of each entry. The 3rd Annual Motorcycle Memorial Ride in Memory of Brandon M. Miles, will be held Sunday June 19 at noon. This noncompetitive, no-fee, memorial honor ride will start at 2-3-4 MotorSports, Wingate at Noon. A stop will be made on the way to eat lunch. For more information about the Memorial Ride please contact Doug Miles at 2-3-4 MotorSports (814) 355-0777. As always, this year’s Cruise will have great food, super fun, and will be a fantastic family event.

SPIKES JUNE 19 HOME OPENER PACKED WITH FESTIVITIES

Local Bands, Skydivers, Limos, Talor Battle and More On Tap for Spikes Opener STATE COLLEGE, PA – Central PA’s Best Family Value, the State College Spikes, will open their 38-game summer home schedule on Sunday, June 19 with a bevy of pre-game activities, special events and great promotions for the entire family. The Spikes’ 6:05 p.m. Home Opener against the rival Williamsport Crosscutters (Philadelphia Phillies’ affiliate) will be presented by PSECU and 95.3 FM 3WZ and comes after a pair of season-opening road games in Williamsport on the 17th and 18th. Gates will open to the general public at 3:30 p.m., giving fans an extended opportunity to experience the many fun, family activities and pageantry Opening Night will offer at the ballpark. As gates open, the first 3,000 fans will be greeted with free Spikes Schedule Magnets compliments of PSECU. Fans will also be entertained by internet sensation “Bob the Bicycle Man” on the main concourse, and those arriving early can watch Spikes batting and infield practice. From 3:30 to 5:10 p.m., a pair of popular area bands will perform live. The Zak Sobel Band, which recently opened for O.A.R. and Lupe Fiasco at Penn State’s ‘Moving On’ concert, will play from 3:30 to 4:15. Then, another local favorite, Low Jack, will play from 4:15 to 5:10. As first pitch time approaches on Opening Night, the focus will turn to the skies above Medlar Field at Lubrano Park as Sky Dive Happy Valley will drop into the ballpark from 10,000 feet to deliver the ceremonial first pitch ball to former Penn State basketball star Talor Battle. Battle, an All-American selection who led the Nittany Lions to the Big Ten Tournament championship game and an NCAA Tournament appearance in March, will also be participating in an on-field event during the game, and will sign free autographs and take pictures between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. on the ballpark’s main concourse. Spikes players and coaches will also be participating in a unique, first-of-itskind introduction ceremony with the help of limousines courtesy of Fullington Bus Company. Limousines will transport starting

and reserve players onto the field for a special introduction prior to taking the field. The National Anthem will be performed by “Happy Valley’s Got Talent” winner Riley Roth and the United States Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol, Nittany Composite Squadron will present our nation’s colors. Plenty of activities will also take place after the game, including the first of 12 spectacular Post-Game Fireworks shows.

Top Prospect Stetson Allie Headlines Spikes’ Initial 2011 Roster

Eight Players to Return to State College from Club’s 2010 Edition STATE COLLEGE, PA – Top Pittsburgh Pirates pitching prospect and 2010 second round draft selection Stetson Allie is among the initial roster of 26 players who will join the State College Spikes for a three-day minicamp which opens Tuesday at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The team will be preparing for Friday’s Season Opener in Williamsport and Sunday’s Home Opener in State College. Allie, who spent the final three weeks of last season working out with the Spikes without seeing the field during a game, was the second-round pick of the Pirates out of St. Edward High School in Ohio last year. Already ranked as the thirdbest prospect in the Pittsburgh organization by Baseball America prior to the season, Allie is rated as having the best slider in the system as well. Nick Kingham, the Pirates’ fourth-round draft pick in 2010, will be joining Allie in State College. Kingham, who was selected out of Sierra Vista High School in Nevada by Pittsburgh, made his pro debut with the Gulf Coast League Pirates last season, pitching three scoreless innings over two appearances. The initial 26-man roster also includes a number of familiar faces for Spikes fans, as in addition to Allie, seven other returnees will appear for the Spikes in 2011. Right-hander Mitch Fienemann, who was one of the first two Australian players in franchise history last season, will join fellow righty Vince Payne and lefties Joely Rodriguez and Justin Ennis as holdovers from last season’s pitching staff. Catcher Matt Skirving, infielder Walker Gourley and outfielder Justin Bencsko are the position players coming back to State College this year. The Spikes will also welcome what has become the usual mix of international players to the team this week. After opening up last season with players from seven different countries, fans will see the first ever Spike from the burgeoning baseball hotbed of Curucao, as infielder Michaelangel Trinidad hits the field for the mini-camp. Panamanian infielder Jorge Bishop and Venezuelan outfielder Exicardo Cayones are also on the roster, as are six Dominican players. In addition to Rodriguez, pitchers Fraylin Campos, Emmanuel De

Leon, and Joan Montero will also be donning Spikes uniforms this week, as will catcher Samuel Gonzalez and infielder Jesus Brito. Four players who were drafted just last week will also make the professional debuts in a State College uniform. Pitcher Matt Benedict from Western Carolina (30th round), catcher Derek Trent from East Tennessee State (31st round), infielder Brian Sharp from California Baptist (24th round) and infielder Kirk Singer from Long Beach State (29th round) enter the mini-camp as newly minted Pirates prospects. Rounding out the roster are pitchers Cliff Archibald, Ryan Hafner, Kevin Kleis and Bryce Weidman, as well as outfielder Wes Freeman. The Spikes will work out at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park in afternoon sessions on Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 before Media Day on Thursday, June 16. Fans can then greet the 2011 Spikes at the “Meet the Spikes” event on Thursday, June 16 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Gates open at 4:45 p.m., and admission, parking, autographs and all other activities will be free. The team will hold its first public workout from 6:30 to 8 p.m., giving fans a chance to see the newest edition of the squad take batting and infield practice. After Friday and Saturday games at Williamsport to open the New York-Penn League regular season, the Spikes will play their Home Opener on Sunday, June 19 against Williamsport at 6:05 p.m. Ballpark gates will open at 3:30 p.m. and a bevy of pre-game activities, special events and great promotions will highlight the evening, including a ceremonial first pitch and autograph session with former Penn State basketball star Talor Battle, post-game fireworks and more! Great seats remain for Spikes Opening Week, which continues after the Home Opener on Monday the 20th, Tuesday the 21st and Wednesday the 22nd with a trio of 7:05 p.m. games against the Auburn Doubledays (Washington Nationals’ affiliate).

One Step Closer

By Matt Masullo The Lady Raiders got on top of standout Ambridge pitcher Kayla Haslett early and took advantage of several Ambridge errors to advance in the PIAA playoffs, winning 9-0 at Mount Aloysius College on Thursday afternoon. In the first inning, leadoff hitter Hannah Cooper reached on an error to start things off for Bellefonte; Jillian Musser followed that up with what was to be a sacrifice bunt, but the ball was thrown away, allowing for Cooper to head to third and Musser to second. Erica DeVinney was walked to load the bases for cleanup hitter Jessica Gmerek. Gmerek hit a ball to third base that was thrown home to eliminate a run from scoring, but Bellefonte still had the bases loaded with one out. That brought Chrissy Tressler to the plate, and her single to right field cleared the bases, scoring Musser, DeVinney and Gmerek, who scored on an errant throw giving the Lady Raiders an early 3-0 lead. Freshman Vanessa Cooper strolled to the plate and plated Tressler with an RBI single. Ashley Bowes then brought Cooper in for the fifth run of the frame, giving Bellefonte a five run cushion at the end of 1 inning of play. In the fourth inning, the Lady Raiders added two more runs when DeVinney plated Hannah Cooper on a sacrifice fly and Gmerek smacked an RBI single to score Musser. That’s all the more run support the Lady Raiders needed, as Raychel DeArmitt mowed down the first 15 batters that she faced, tossing a no hitter through five innings before handing the ball to Alexandra Stathes to shut the door on Ambridge. In the sixth, Bellefonte added the final two runs of the game, which were not needed thanks in part to phenomenal pitching performances from DeArmitt and Stathes and a great team defensive show. Vanessa Cooper paced the Lady Raiders, going a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate. With the win, Bellefonte advanced to play Valley on Monday in Hollidaysburg.

Left at the Doorstep By Matt Masullo

The Lady Raider softball team has been one of the hottest hitting teams in the state this postseason. Enter Valley’s Caitlin Nealer; the Lady Vikings ace cooled off Bellefonte’s bats, striking out 13 and giving up only one hit in a 1-0 Valley triumph over the defending state champs. With the win, Valley advances to play Manheim Central in the PIAA Class AAA state championship game. The game appeared to be a pitcher’s duel between Nealer and Bellefonte ace Raychel DeArmitt until the fourth inning. Valley’s Katrina George led the inning off with a double off of the fence behind Bellefonte center fielder Ashley Bowes. Carly Bonk followed with a single to center and advanced to second base and a throw to the plate. With runners on second and third, Amanda Mascara grounded back to DeArmitt, and reached first on an attempt to get George, standing on third, to commit to the plate. That left the bases loaded for DeArmitt, who has had a knack of getting out of sticky situations all postseason. Lindsay Nicastro dropped a ball behind second base to score Goerge, giving the Lady Vikings a 1-0 lead. DeArmitt then got out of a bases loaded jam with only one out in the inning, with a strikeout and a 6-5 putout to keep Bellefonte within one run. That was all the more run support that Valley would need, as Nealer was on her game, keeping every ball Bellefonte made contact with in the infield. Bellefonte never threatened again in the game, and Valley prevailed. Devon Etters managed the lone Bellefonte hit. The loss ends a season in which Bellefonte had to prevail over the loss of six seniors from their state championship team from 2010. Next year’s installment of the Lady Raider softball team will have to overcome the loss of two starting pitchers in DeArmitt and Alexandra Stathes, first baseman Kissy Thal, center fielder Ashley Bowes and utility player Heidi Fetterolf. With the reputation that Bellefonte softball has developed over the years, one has to think that the pipeline is full of budding talent ready to hit O’Leary field next spring. Congratulations on a great season Bellefonte.

UPS Store Wins Championship

STATE COLLEGE – State College Little League Girls Fastpitch Softball season ended Thursday evening with a very exciting, well played and well pitched game by both teams. When the dust settled, UPS Store had defeated Nittany Settlement 6 -4 for the League Championship. UPS scored single runs in the first two innings and added 2 more runs in the fourth for a 4-0 lead. Nittany Settlement got on the score board with a run in the bottom of the fourth and added 3 more in the bottom of the fifth tie the game. I looked like the momentum had shifted in Nittany’s favor but UPS had one more at bat and they added two runs in the top of the 6th. Nittany Settlement went down quietly in the bottom half of the inning and the celebration began.

The event is a 4 person scramble format with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. at the country club. Proceeds benefit the Bryan Durkin and Dr. Hugh Rogers Memorial Scholarship funds and the Bellefonte High School Football Program. The tournament was previously known as the Bryan Durkin Memorial Red Raider Open Golf Tournament and had been in existence since 1993. Bryan was an outstanding defensive end for the Red Raiders from 1984-1986. In 1992 he was tragically killed in an automobile accident the night before the tournament and had planned to play in the tournament that year. Several years ago the Bellefonte Football Program wanted to recognize also the contributions of the Rogers family to Bellefonte athletics and added the name of Dr. Rogers to the tournament. Dr. Rogers and his father were team doctors for Bellefonte athletes for 75 years. Cost of the Tournament is $80.00 per golfer and includes greens fees, cart, prizes, on course refreshments and a post tournament luncheon. Applications are available from Duffy Besch (dbesch@basd.net), John Wetzler (coach1122@yahoo.com), the Bellefonte Area High School, or at the pro shop at the Nittany Country Club.

The Nittany Wind Quintet is an ensemble of the Nittany Valley Symphony, consisting (from left to right) of Barry Kroeker on oboe, Judy Moore on flute and piccolo, James Dunne on horn, Trina Gallup on bassoon, and Mark Weaver on clarinet. featured a majestic horn part. Hunting at Valabre captured the energy of lords chasing prey with hounds and horses. The suite closed with gently interweaving harmonies and quick bird-like notes that came together into one final, sustained note, like the amen of a prayer. The ensemble performed the first two movements of Quintet, an early Romantic period work by Danish composer Peter Rasmussen (1838-1913), who was credited with writing the first Danish wind quintet. The upbeat, optimistic first movement included a lovely passage of melody and response between the flute and horn. The second movement began with leaping notes from the horn, then the other instruments joined in, reminiscent of the hunt or steeplechase. The final piece was Dance Suite by the obscure English composer Norman Hallam, born in 1945. The four movements were based on dances: Waltz, Bossa Nova, Quickstep, and Charleston. The music was characterized by a strong jazz influence and a sense of humor. Quickstep contained what Dunne described as “a surprise audio effect,” a deliberate imitation of a skipping phonograph record. The audience laughed and applauded at the end. The Nittany Wind Quintet performed a program that emphasized the diversity of style, spirit, and purpose of music written for wind quintet ensembles. The surprise and sense of humor were welcome additions on this musical adventure. This free performance was sponsored by the Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association, a non-profit organization that promotes the arts, Victorian architecture, and cultural heritage of Bellefonte. Information on the 2011-2012 concert series will be listed on the association’s Web site, http://bellefontearts.org/library_concerts.htm.

On Sunday, June 12, the Nittany Wind Quintet played a varied, intriguing program for the Sunday Afternoons at the Library Concert Series, marking the end of the 30th season. The Centre County Library Museum Building, located at 201 N. Allegheny St., Bellefonte, provided an intimate setting for the chamber music concert. The musicians performed in one of the 1815 Georgian building’s elegant rooms and the audience faced them through the wide doorway of the adjoining room. The Nittany Wind Quintet, an ensemble of the Nittany Valley Symphony, consisted of Judy Moore on flute and piccolo, Barry Kroeker on oboe, Mark Weaver on clarinet, Trina Gallup on bassoon, and musical director James Dunne on horn. Dunne said that the quintet had been together for a year, performing four concerts together. The June 12 concert was their second performance for Sunday Afternoons at the Library. He introduced each piece of music by speaking briefly about the composer. The first piece they performed was composed by Franz Danzi (1763-1826), a contemporary of Beethoven who knew Mozart. His Blaserquintett Opus 56, Nr. 2, had four movements. The first, Allegretto, was lyrical, bright, and upbeat, with passages reminiscent of birds singing. Andante was slower, with a darker, more reflective mood and a sense of longing. Menuett and Allegro were lively, with a quick tempo. The Nittany Wind Quintet played Swing, the first movement of Woodwind Quintet No. 1 by American composer Alec Wilder (1907-1980), who wrote pop songs from the 1930’s to the 1970’s, and was a friend of Frank Sinatra. This short piece had a completely different feeling, showcasing Wilder’s immersion in the jazz scene. The syncopated music had a swinging, urban feeling, with a touch of humor. The musicians added moments of percussion to the music by rhythmically stomping their feet. The third selection was La Cheminee du Roi Rene Suite for Woodwind Quintet by Darius Millhaud (1892-1974), a French composer who emigrated to America. He was known for his jazz-influenced compositions, but this suite was adapted from his music for the 1939 film, Cavalcade d’amour, a tale of three love stories in the court of the 15th-century king, Rene I. The music started with a slow, gentle, pastoral movement, then became lilting and spacious. The quicker Jugglers movement included some rapid notes representing the act of juggling.

CPI Senior Certificate and Awards Program By Ebun Adewumi

PLEASANT GAP – On Tuesday June 7 at seven in the evening, the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology held its Senior Certificate and Awards Program. The ceremony, held in the CPI building, was to honor and recognize the graduating high school seniors who completed their respective programs. The CPI is a technical school where high school students can attend starting in tenth grade. The school districts that had students there were Penns Valley, Bellefonte, and Bald Eagle School Districts. The auditorium was filled to capacity well before the ceremony was to start, and overflow seating was held in the lobby right outside the auditorium. Proud parents, family members, and friends snapped pictures with the graduates beforehand while they lined the hallways waiting to start the processional into the auditorium. The ceremony opened with a student, Brooke Fisher, singing the Star Spangled Banner after the graduates’ processional into the auditorium. Daniel Fisher, Superintendent of Record, gave the opening remarks where he gave a brief history of the CPI, gave them advice about their future in the work force and reminded the students what being a graduate of CPI can do for them. “Being a graduate of CPI will open doors for you but it’s up to you to keep them open,” Fisher said. “You can make that happen.” Henry Yeagley, Joint Operating Committee Chairperson, spoke next and said he left the graduates with just simple advice, “Do good.” He also recognized the board members who represented each three school districts. The evening was then filled with award of after award being handed out, some from members of the community, who represented different business. Each program class also got their moment on stage as each student in the program was called up on stage. At the end of the evening, President of CPI, Dr. Richard C. Makin, gave the closing remarks. “Never stop believing in yourself ”, Makin said, “Your future is your future.”

After the ceremony, the new graduates, streamed out of the auditorium into a sea of proud family and friends.
