‘Towers of Terror’ scares up funds By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

PLEASANT GAP — For three nights last week, Halloween enthusiasts from across Centre County and beyond converged on the “Towers of Terror” in Pleasant Gap for a good old-fashioned scare. They weren’t disappointed. Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology transformed the Centre County Public Safety Training Center into the “Towers of Terror” — two buildings of rooms so scary that parents were encouraged not to bring young children. Rob Balsamo is the coordinator for the facility. He said it takes approximately two weeks to transform the building — which is normally used to train policemen and firefighters — into a pair of haunted towers. According to Balsamo, the haunted house is a way for CPI to give back to the community because all the proceeds raised go to charity. “At CPI we get a lot of help from the public and businesses throughout the

year,” Balsamo said. “We look at it as, ‘We want to give back.’ By doing the haunted house, raising money and giving it to a charity, we’re giving back to the community. That’s the general premise behind it.” On Saturday night, an estimated 650 people made their way through the towers during a four-hour span. Despite rain showers and chilly temperatures, many stood in line for an hour or more just for the chance to be scared by the likes of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers. Turning the Public Safety Training Center into the haunted house is no easy task, according to Balsamo. “It takes us about two weeks to get the facility cleaned, prepped and ready to go so it’s ready to decorate. Then we put the show on,” he said. Once the show ended on Saturday night, another round of cleanup began. “We have to tear it all down in two days,” he said. “We’ve got police who are supposed to be using this on Tuesday.” Towers, Page 4

STATE COLLEGE — Two widely popular chain restaurants, Perkins and Quaker Steak and Lube, will soon return to State College, leaving area fans’ taste buds tingling with anticipation. After the previous Quaker Steak and Lube closed in 2008 and the old Perkins, located at South Atherton Street and University Drive, closed more than a year ago, State College was left without two iconic brands.

Thanks to JDK Management, breakfast enthusiasts and wing lovers can once again satisfy their cravings. “We wanted to have a fresh location with easier access to the entire area and a fresh building to go along with it,” Russ Berner, vice president of restaurant operations for JDK Management, said of the new Perkins. The company owns and operates 30 other Perkins within Pennsylvania and Ohio. And though JDK Management Restaurants, Page 4

Man ordered to jail after fifth DUI By STEVE BAUER StateCollege.com

BELLEFONTE — A judge handed out a stiff jail sentence Oct. 17 after a Boalsburg man was convicted for driving under the influence for the fifth time. Robert Reitz, 50, will spend 60 days to six months behind bars at the Centre County Correctional Facility. The district attorney’s office argued for the punishment, not only because of the repeated DUI violations, but because in this most recent incident in which Reitz’s blood alcohol level was above .3 percent. That’s almost four times the legal limit. Reitz was arrested on March 10 after his

truck broke down on North Church Street in Boalsburg. According to prosecutors, Reitz got out and pounded on the hood of another car, demanding to be towed. A witness tried to explain the car was not a tow truck, but Reitz appeared confused, ROBERT REITZ according to prosecutors. The witness flagged down two State College police officers who made the arrest.

Ex-PSU president seeks defamation suit delay By PETER JACKSON The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Former Penn State President Graham Spanier wants a judge to put his planned defamation lawsuit against former FBI Director Louis Freeh on hold until after Spanier’s criminal trial in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. In Centre County court papers posted online Monday, Spanier’s lawyers contend that moving forward on the civil case now would undercut it. They wrote that people who are potential witnesses in both cases might assert their right against selfincrimination and refuse to testify if the still-unscheduled criminal trial is pending. “There is no reason not to stay this action pending the resolution of the criminal trial,” the attorneys wrote in the court papers filed in Bellefonte. Penn State’s trustees hired Freeh to conduct an internal investigation of the Sandusky matter. In a highly critical July 2012 report, Freeh concluded that Span-

ier, football coach Joe Paterno and other high-ranking university administrators had failed to protect children against Sandusky, a former assistant football coach who is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term. Spanier initiated a lawsuit on the day before the anniversary of Freeh’s report, complying with a state law that gives people who believe they have been libeled or defamed one year to initiate a civil suit. But Spanier has provided few details about the planned lawsuit. He has yet to file an actual complaint and is asking the court to defer any requirement that he do so until after the criminal proceeding is concluded. Freeh, a former federal judge, called Spanier’s court filings “self-serving” and said he objects to any delay in the filing of Spanier’s complaint. “This baseless notice of claim should be presented in a court of law rather than hyped in Spanier’s media campaign,” he said in a written response. In the latest filing, Spanier’s lawyers disputed Freeh’s finding that Spanier and

the other administrators repeatedly withheld critical facts from authorities. “Spanier did not once conceal facts about Sandusky’s child abuse, let alone ‘repeatedly’,” they said. Freeh noted that Spanier had been removed as Penn State’s president before Freeh was hired to investigate. “That investigation uncovered emails by Spanier which are now part of the evidence in his felony criminal prosecution for false statements and for failing to report Sandusky, a serial pedophile, to law enforcement authorities,” Freeh said. “The law provides serious consequences for bringing any action in bad faith, which I will pursue to the fullest extent.” Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley are charged in what prosecutors say was a criminal cover-up of complaints about Sandusky. Paterno died of lung cancer in January 2012. Spanier’s lawyer did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.

Larry Foster, PSU philanthropist and PR icon, dies By STEVE BAUER StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Larry Foster made his mark as a legendary figure in the public relations industry and for dedicated service to his alma mater. The Penn State graduate passed away on Oct. 17 at age 88. He leaves behind a sterling record of accomplishment and philanthropy. Foster was named one of the top public relations professionals of the 20th century. As an executive with Johnson & Johnson, it was Foster who rescued the Tylenol brand after the cyanide tragedy in the early 1980’s. “When you ask about the giants of corporate communications, Larry Foster is usually one of the first persons named,”

said Penn State President Rodney Erickson. “There are many textbook cases built on Larry’s long and successful career based on his commitment to honesty and integrity.” Foster earned his journalism degree at Penn State in 1948 LARRY FOSTER and started out as a newspaper reporter. He joined Johnson & Johnson in 1957, rising to become corporate vice president of public relations. In 1982, seven people died after taking Tylenol laced with cyanide. Foster led Johnson & Johnson’s response and was in-

University argues against Right-to-Know Law changes By ADAM LIDGETT StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State has taken its case to Harrisburg, arguing the university should not be fully covered under the state’s Right-to-Know Law. Representatives from Penn State, along with the three other state-related universities — University of Pittsburgh, Temple University and Lincoln University, all appeared at a hearing before the Senate Committee on State Government on Monday. Those schools have one main concern: Because they are not state agencies, they would not have sovereign immunity protection from lawsuits if they were to be fully covered under the Right-to-Know Law. While the universities are subject to certain provisions of Right-to-Know, mak-

ing the universities fully compliant under the law might hurt them, said Penn State spokesperson Lisa Powers. Powers said defining Penn State as a state agency is contrary to the fundamental design of the state-related universities, and defining the state-related universities as state agencies could have unintended consequences. “There are some classified contracts in terms of research dollars that would definitely be a competitive disadvantage if we had to share that documentation,” Powers said. “There is also donor information as well as student’s information.” Penn State already has to disclose some of its information as a result of Right-toKnow, including financial disclosures to make sure they are accountable for the funds they receive from the state.

strumental in the company’s decision to recall 32 million packages of Tylenol. That strong response cost $125 million but it also generated an extremely positive response. Tylenol was eventually returned to store shelves. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but there was no discussion about the cost,” Foster told Penn State students in 2006. According to Penn State, PRWeek magazine named Foster one of the 10 most influential public relations professionals of the 20th century. Foster, who served as editor of The Daily Collegian met his wife, Ellen at Penn State. They were married for 64 years. Foster served as a member of the Penn State Board of Trustees from 1980 to 1989. He was named a Distinguished Alumnus in 1979 and received the 1999 Lion’s Paw

Award for service to the university. The Fosters have donated more than $2 million to Penn State. The couple provided funds to endow the Larry and Ellen Foster Professorship in Writing and Editing and to support the twice-a-year Foster-Foreman Conference of Distinguished Writers. They created the Lawrence G. and Ellen M. Foster Scholarship endowment. The Fosters also helped establish the Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication. “Any words to try to summarize the Fosters’ impact would be an understatement,” said Doug Anderson, dean of the College of Communications. “Larry and Ellen have, through their personal generosity, supported students, faculty, programs and facilities. The spectrum of their impact is incredible.”

All told, an estimated 1,500 went through the towers during the three-day span. Cost of admission was $5. This year, all proceeds raised went to the Centre County Youth Service Bureau. “CPI has an application process and picks a different charity every year,” said YSB CEO Andrea Boyles. “We were very lucky to be chosen this year. This is really a great way for us to raise dollars with very little effort on our part, quite honestly. (CPI) has done all the work.” As she stood near a tent set up for volunteer workers, Boyles said that she was impressed with the entire process. “I’m told they pull this off with zero overhead. It’s just an amazing thing,” she said. “There are a lot of students from CPI involved. They do a phenomenal job. They’re having fun, but it’s hard work in there.” YSB was one of several local non-profits to apply this year. According to Balsamo, it was an easy choice. “I’ve been a foster parent in the past, I’ve adopted two children. Knowing what they do, and what this money can do, it’s huge. It’s nice. Everyone gets a lot out of it. It’s great giving back,” he said. Of course, Balsamo pointed out that the event would not take place without volunteers. While props and special effects are a nice touch, the “Towers of Terror” wouldn’t be the same without human interaction. Over the course of three days, nearly 100 people donned costumes, masks and makeup in an effort to bring the event to life. Based on the screams heard outside the building, the actors inside were doing an admirable job. Tyler Mikesell drove from Lock Haven to dress like a zombie. He wore a mask that featured a rotting jawline. As an added touch, students from CPI used latex to create a special effect of an eyeball falling out of its socket. “I’m just here to support the cause and give people some good scares,” Mikesell said with a laugh. “I was here Friday and Saturday. It’s always good help a good cause.”

will serve as the managing company of the new Quaker Steak and Lube, it does not own the restaurant. Berner said the owners are brand new franchisees and are very excited to bring Quaker Steak and Lube back to State College and rebuild the brand’s image in the area. As many are aware of Quaker Steak and Lube’s unique style and ambiance in addition to its food and beverage product, Berner said his company is looking forward to overseeing the management of the restaurant. “We’ll have a lot of fun,” he said. The new restaurants will both be located in the Eastview Plaza, across the street from the Nittany Mall. With the addition of the new I-99 exit, Berner said the plaza was the perfect place to construct both restaurants. “It was a good deal for us to bring business back to that side. Those brands have a history of success when they are by interstate locations,” he said. “The new exit really makes this side of town attractive. It’s a lot easier to get to now. This success should start soon as renovations to the Quaker Steak and Lube, which will be located in the former Cinema 6 Theatre, are finished. “Although it was previously a theater, where Quaker Steak and Lube is, everything is new from the walls to the floor to the kitchen,” Berner said. As the $2 million renovation has been completed, Berner said Quaker Steak and Lube has hired 150 people to staff its 275seat restaurant. Included in the seat count is an indoor-outdoor bar. “As far as Quaker Steak and Lube goes, it’s differentiation. There is nothing like a

THOSE ATTENDING last weekend’s “Towers of Terror” in Pleasant Gap paid $5 to enter the facility. There were plenty of screams (and some laughter) as groups exited the building.

Mikesell said that volunteering as a zombie for a four-hour shift presents some challenges. “I was getting really sweaty in there. It’s still fun, though. I feel scary, I feel like I look really cool but the mask does get hot and itchy,” he said. Jennifer Crane, who runs the De-clutter and Family Group Decision Making programs at YSB, helped set up one of the rooms inside the towers. She was impressed with the team effort displayed by the community. “It’s a great cause,” Crane said. “Part of our responsibility was to create a room … come up with a concept and staff it. That’s been really fun and we’ve gotten wonderful volunteers.” Crane sat near the Salvation Army truck and helped hand out snacks and drinks to ghouls and zombies who were taking short breaks from their stints inside the towers. “It’s been great seeing all the costumes and hearing all the screams,” she said. “It’s been a really great event.”

Quaker Steak and Lube. It started in Sharon, Pa., so this is home territory for us. There is nothing like it,” he said. “The bar is a great aspect. It’s really fun. There’s private dining rooms for parties, as well as meeting. It’s really a fun space.” “All-you-can-eat Tuesday night” events, outdoor events and car shows will also add to the fun and of the motorthemed restaurant that patrons know and love. “Those things are unique to Quaker Steak and Lube. Fun is in its DNA,” Berner said. Perkins will have a fresh, new modern look including WiFi and televisions will be seen throughout the family restaurant’s $1.5 million brand new building. “You don’t have to miss your favorite show or the news to go out to dinner at Perkins,” Berner said. Many of the new, fresher offerings also have to do with the menu including an entire section of health eating alternatives and more home-cooked items made from scratch at the restaurant. With Quaker Steak and Lube completed, Berner said Wednesday, Nov. 13, will be the first day of business at the restaurant. Customers can expect Perkins to open in mid to late January, as construction has not finished yet. Upon the openings, Berner said he expects the State College market to be welcoming toward Perkins and Quaker Steak and Lube. “Everybody in State College counts on the university for support. They both fit real nicely around that clientele,” he said. “We’re all in business to make money, but we’re pretty confident that it won’t be a problem for us in State College because the community will support us as we support them.”

Penn State expected to name new president soon By ADAM LIDGETT StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State is expecting to name a new president in a matter of weeks, according to Keith Masser, chairman of the Penn State Board of Trustees. Masser updated the university’s faculty senate Tuesday, telling the group he hopes to have a new president named by the November board of trustees meeting. “The search is moving in a positive trajectory and has atKEITH MASSER tracted a large qualified pool of candidates,” Masser said. The names of candidates being considered for the position have not been made public. Masser said the process requires strict confidentiality. However, Masser did say that the search committee has contacted 400 individuals about the position, and 150 people have been asked to recommend qualified candidates who might be available for the job. Current university president Rodney

Erickson plans to retire no later than June 30, 2014. Also at the meeting, the senate voted in favor of a resolution to make child care a primary mission of the university. The resolution asks for the faculty senate to work with the university administration to maintain a high quality system of child care programs on the campus while also being financially responsible. Also, the resolution asks that employees at the Penn State childcare centers receive equal benefits. It’s hoped that will prevent a high turnover of staff. Erica Smithwick, a senator from the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, proposed the legislation. “This was very much intended to address all commonwealth campuses as well University Park,” Smithwick said. Vice President and Provost Nicholas Jones also gave a brief report on current enrollment at Penn State. The entering baccalaureate class this fall is up 747 students from last year, which is equally split between University Park campus and the commonwealth campuses. Applications for the 2014-2015 year are also up this year -- by 1,900 so far. Jones says this is representative of a more typical year. Last year applications were down by 9 percent.

Lube, from page 1 place on Wednesday. George “Jig” Warren, co-founder of the original Quaker Steak and Lube in Sharon, Pa., made his way to State College for the event. Warren and his business partner bought an old gas station in Sharon and turned it into the very first Quaker Steak and Lube in the early 1970s. “The gas station went up for sale and we wanted to do something with an automobile theme,” Warren said. “We got a hold of Quaker State Oil and asked them if we could use the name. It took off from there.” They had the property and the name — they just didn’t have the food. Warren explained that the original Lube didn’t feature chicken wings at all. “We were a ‘cook-your-own’ restaurant,” Warren said. “We had a grill in the corner, a little refrigerator filled with things so you could make your own salad. We had baked potatoes we made in the microwave. We had no kitchen. It was the perfect restaurant. Selling food and booze and no kitchen.” Around 1977, Warren said they tried selling chicken wings for the first time. The rest, as they say, is history. “Rochester (N.Y.) and Buffalo were the only spots that were doing a lot of them. We developed our own sauces, we started entering contests and we started winning them. It just grew from there,” he said. “We wanted to expand, then we started franchising. We had no idea it would take off like it has.” This is the Lube’s second stop in Happy Valley. Otto’s Pub and Brewery has since taken over that location. According to the Lube’s president and CEO, John Longstreet, the time was right for another Lube. “We were here once before and we’re really excited to come back,” Longstreet said. “Ever since that restaurant closed, we’ve had people say, ‘When are you going to come back to State College?’ We’re really excited about this. It’s not just about the university, which we love, but it’s the fact that there’s a great demographic that supports a restaurant like ours.” Once the Lube decided to come back to State College, Longstreet said, it was a matter of choosing a location. Although businesses are sprouting up along the North Atherton Street corridor, the Lube decided to head to the other end of town.

QUAKER STEAK and Lube officially opened this week. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Monday night. Pictured, from left, are co-owner Ral Merchant, co-owner Jeff Druzak, Centre County judge Bradley Lunsford, co-founder George “Jig” Warren and president and CEO John Longstreet. The Lube is located in the same plaza as Big Lots, Rey Azteca, Stover Furniture and Jo-Ann Fabrics. A Perkins Restaurant is currently under construction in the same plaza. “Number one, we like being in a shopping center like this because there’s a natural draw from the other retail around us. It helps us during the day, around lunchtime. We also like to be where there’s great neighborhoods and there are around here. Those were the two things that were most attractive to us,” Longstreet said. The State College Lube is owned by the Druzak Merchant Development Group and run by JDK Management. Co-owner Jeff Druzak, who hails from Pittsburgh, said

he was excited to bring the Lube back to Happy Valley. He was thrilled to set up shop across the street from the Nittany Mall. “We like the location. There are a lot more businesses moving out into this area. The demographics looked very good,” Druzak said. “It’s a real family-oriented type of place. (The Lube) is expanding and growing. We’re excited.” The Lube, which can accommodate nearly 300 guests, will create 200 jobs in Centre County. It’s the 14th location in Pennsylvania.

Colton, who resides in McLean, Va., said his lecture will address the great recession and the resulting housing finance crash. Since then, he said, the nation has been “limping along” because reform has not occurred in housing finance. It’s difficult for people to get a mortgage, he said, so he plans to talk about how to frame the future of the market and come up with an approach to reform the system while protecting the government. Colton also said his lecture will address the challenges that have occurred in the housing sector in the past, as well as the

benefits of the housing finance system. He aims to identify what went wrong and develop a framework for a new system, he said. Principles needed for a more effective future, Colton said, include private capital being out front, and for the private sector to set aside money to cover risk. Care must be taken to make sure people need to be qualified prior to getting a mortgage. Colton said his lecture is open to the public, and will be made understandable to anyone who wants to attend. “It will really try to lay out … the criteria going forward,” he said. The Hankin Distinguished Lecture Series was established in 2006 in honor of the late Bernard Hankin. World-class speakers are invited to Penn State to address students and faculty, according to Penn State. The lecture is free. An information reception will follow.

STATE COLLEGE — Dozens of people gathered at Celebration Hall on Monday night to roll the dice, have some fun and support a good cause. The service organization Altrusa International of Centre County sponsored Ladies Bunco Night to help raise funds for both the Mid-State Literacy Council as well as the Rwandan Learning Center. The MidState Literacy Council provides services to help meet the literacy needs of adults in the region. Bunco is a parlour game played with dice. Teams have to roll a certain number to win. Winners are given a “bunco bunny,” which are exchanged for small prizes, including gift cards to local restaurants and book stores. “Its an opportunity for a social gathering,” said Phyllis Corman, treasurer for the Altrusa club. It’s also an opportunity to support literacy — not only in this area, but around the world. Carol Baney, a volunteer with Altrusa, went on a mission trip to Rwanda to help develop a school. Baney took books to Rwanda to support a library and an English as a Second Language program. Altrusa wants to raise more than $1,000, which was the amount of money it raised at the group’s last bunco fundraiser, local

Altrusa President Brendy Ruby said. The group tries to hold three fundraisers each year. “There is a $30 registration fee (for bunco),” Ruby said. “We do have a year round fundraiser. We are selling handbags to support to help those affected in Indonesia from the 2004 tsunami.” About 20 young women in villages in the Indonesian region of Aceh produce the bags sold by Altrusa. People can buy wallets as low as $22, to larger bags worth about $190. Half of the proceeds go to support those affected by the tsunami while the other half goes Altrusa’s other projects, which include the Mid-State Literacy Council as well as the Rwandan Learning Center. Ruby says that only half of the people who came to support Altrusa tonight were actually members of the organization itself. Corman said Altrusa is primarily a women’s organization but does have one male member. The local Altrusa chapter was started in 1953 when the Harrisburg chapter of the organization talked to local residents to see if they wanted to start a chapter in the Centre region. “We used to have certain groups represented in the organization, such as so many people being teachers,” Ruby said. “We’ve moved away from that though, we don’t want to discourage anyone from joining.”

Hearing set in indecent assault case By ADAM LIDGETT StateCollege.com

BELLEFONTE — The Penn State Harrisburg student charged with indecently assaulting two women earlier this month is scheduled to have his preliminary hearing tomorrow at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte. Claudius Taylor, 19, of Odenton, Md., is charged with two felony counts of robbery along with misdemeanor counts of indecent assault. Police said that Taylor approached a woman at about 2:45 a.m. Oct. 13 near Foster Avenue. Taylor reportedly asked the woman for directions, but then began to grope her, eventually dragging her to a yard out of view, police said.

The woman screamed for help and eventually hit Taylor in the head with a bucket. The suspect ran away, allegedly taking the woman’s cellphone, police said. At about 3 a.m., police said, Taylor approached another woman in Fairmount Park, punching her in the head until she was knocked to the ground. Taylor then pinned her to the ground, police said. Officers who were responding to another incident heard her screams and chased Taylor for six blocks until he was caught in Osage Alley, according to reports. A 22-year-old man helped in the capture of Taylor, police said. The man has not been identified. Tami Fees is listed as Taylor’s attorney and did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Man’s evolution rather basic?

Some 1.8 million years ago, one of our ancestors roaming around what is now the country of Georgia had the misfortune to encounter a large carnivore — perhaps a saber-toothed tiger or a giant cheetah, now extinct. Our ancestor, unfortunately for him but fortunately for modern scientists, finished a distant second in the contest and was dragged off to a cave to become dinner for this carnivore and perhaps several others as well. That skull and four other sets of skulls and bones suggested the cave was a kind of larder for the carnivores. But “Skull 5,” as it became known, suggests that the evolution of man out of Africa might have been simpler and more straightforward than previously thought. This news comes from study published in the journal Science’s Oct. 18 issue. If the skull and brain case had been found at widely separated locations, Dale McFeatters the tendency would have been to think is a columnist for of them as separate species, making Scripps-Howard the tree of man look more like a dense News Service. bush. Before his unfortunate encounter, the owner of Skull 5 was a little short of 5 feet tall, with a small brain case — a third the size of a modern human’s, a long ape-like face and a massive jaw with big teeth. The significance of the discovery, aside from the fact that mankind’s ancestors probably left Africa for points north much earlier than thought, is that the difference among the hominids’ remains is not particularly greater than the difference among modern humans’ remains. That would mean that humans may have evolved from only one or two species and that science hasn’t allowed for wide differences within individual species. David Lordkipanidze, director of the Georgian National Museum, noted that although there are wide variations among Danny DeVito, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal, they are all Homo sapiens. The three may not appreciate the comparison, but it illustrates the point. Some scientists think Skull Five came along as hominids were making the transition from Homo habilis to Homo erectus, with legs getting longer and hips narrower because they were increasingly walking erect instead of scrambling about on all fours. Others think that might be pushing the evidence a little far. Based on these findings, the evolution of man may have been much more of a straight line — except, of course, when it was interrupted by hungry carnivores that were bigger and stronger and had sharper teeth.

Was the shutdown worth it?

After the anger subsides, what can we take from the shutdown fight? The government shutdown ended not with a bang but a whimper. Congress last week voted to end the fiscal impasse that idled about 20 percent of the federal government for more than two weeks. Democrats and Republicans both tried to claim vindication after the House and Senate voted to fund the government through January and extend the federal debt limit until February. But public opinion polls show the Republicans bear the brunt of the blame for the past two weeks. And the GOP won no concessions. Was it worth it? Will it matter in next year’s elections? What should Americans take away from the shutdown? Columnists Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk weigh in.

JOEL MATHIS

I’m terrified.

Yes, the debt ceiling has been extended and the shutdown is over, but the last few weeks leave me more discouraged than ever about whether America is even governable anymore. And they have increased my sense that a few powerful Republicans are happy to see the broad swaths Joel Mathis, of the country joelmmathis@ endure powerful gmail.com, is a writer in pain and sufferPhiladelphia. ing if that means they can somehow defeat President Barack Obama in the end. Sound too dramatic? Then let’s listen to the words of Rep. Morgan Griffith, a Republican from Virginia, as he encouraged his colleagues to breach the debt ceiling, send America into default and potentially crash the world economy, creating suffering for millions of people.

JOEL MATHIS

“I will remind you that this group of renegades that decided that they wanted to break from the crown in 1776 did great damage to the economy of the colonies,” Griffith said. “They created the greatest nation and the best form of government, but they did damage to the economy in the short run.” Again, that’s terrifying. It’s reminiscent of the Vietnam War-era officer who told a reporter: “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.” The shutdown ended before the really big damage could start, but financial services company Standard & Poor estimates it removed $24 billion from the U.S. economy. Defaulting on the debt — as Griffith encouraged — would’ve been much worse. Who’s to say that he and his colleagues won’t succeed in pushing the country over the edge next time? And this is why I increasingly believe the country to be ungovernable. It was never supposed to be the case that a few dozen congressmen could bring the government, and its country, thudding to a stop. We’re now lurching from crisis to crisis. It’s unsustainable, and there appears to be no way out. We survived last time. We survived this time. How many more cat-like lives do we have before we run out? Not many, I fear. What then? It’s simply terrifying to contemplate.

BEN BOYCHUK

Be not afraid. As far as crises go, the republic has endured far worse than the late government shutdown, which was political theater more than anything else. The economy didn’t crash. Even the furloughed “nonessential” workers will receive back pay. Conservatives, however, need to assess with clear eyes what just happened and why it should never happen again. The hard lesson: Politics is the “art of the possible.” Yes, it’s a clich?, and yes, you’ve probably heard it more than once this week. But in a representative republic, achieving the possible requires votes. Republicans simply didn’t have

the numbers to accomplish what they sought to do: defund and delay Obamacare; repeal the odious medical device tax; require members of Congress and their staffs to conform to the new health insurance law’s mandates; and rein in long-term spending by controlling the growth of federal debt. True, Republicans control a majority of the House. That matters. As James Madison wrote, “The House of Representatives cannot only refuse, but they alone can propose, the supplies requisite for the support of government. ... This power over the purse may, in fact, be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people, for obtaining a redress of every grievance, and for carrying into effect every just and salutary measure.” So forget the Democrats’ nonsense about Republican “anarchists.” It may have been a dumb play, but it was a legitimate one. The good news: Memories are short. Anger subsides. What’s notable about the shutdown is how much didn’t happen. Life continued more or less normally, with one crucial ex- Ben Boychuk, ception: Obam- bboychuk@cityacare landed Oct. journal.org, is 1 with a gigantic associate editor of thud. People are City Journal. finally beginning to experience the true costs of the law, as their insurance premiums skyrocket and they lose the doctors the president promised they could keep. This time next year, this shutdown spectacle will be a distant memory. But Obamacare will still be with us. Now that’s something to be terrified about.

BEN BOYCHUK

More fiscal hardship awaits us By DAN K. THOMASSON Scripps-Howard News Service

My Republican father used to say that conservatism was looking for stairs to walk down rather than a window to jump out. It wasn’t an original statement, but it was accurate. I wonder what he would say now. Those were the days when one could be a moderate and conservative at the same time without fear of party reprisal, before adherence to rigid doctrine replaced a constructive approach to politics and, for that matter, good old common sense. It was a time before the virtual civil war being fought now every three months or so in this city threatened to bring down the economy and hoist us all on the petard of antisocial causes seasoned with unbending ideology. Why, Republicans and Democrats even used to seek each other’s advice now and then, perhaps over lunch and dinner or in sharing a ride home or to the office. It was an era when “loyal opposition” wasn’t a phrase meaning capitulation. The government shutdown that ended last week barely averted a U.S. default. But another crisis, like the hurricanes that often plagues us, will be back in January, when we will have to deal with the prospect of closed government and possible default once again. In the meantime, estimates of the shutdown’s cost have ranged as high as $24 billion. The latest polls reveal that 74 percent of the general public — Democrats, Independents and Republicans — blame the Grand Old Party for the

latest fiscal nightmare. Perhaps that will convince the party’s hard noses to reassess their positions next time out, but don’t count on it. The rebellious Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas — backed by the now-activist Heritage Foundation and its leader, former Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina — will still be around. It is difficult to explain to those in the so-called tea party, who believe all those fiscal experts are just alarmists about the repercussions of default, that they are playing with fire, as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said recently. Their belief that what would rise from the ashes would be better reveals an incredible ignorance about the realities of financial insolvency on a global scale. At the risk of exaggeration, putting us back together might not be possible — at least not with the world standing we have enjoyed since World War II. Yet, blaming the Republicans for all of this also would be a mistake. The catalyst for this dilemma has been the ill-advised health care reform act. Not that reforms weren’t needed. But the inexperienced chief executive failed to understand that adopting any legislation without a single vote from the opposing party is not good practice. Democratic congressional leaders rammed the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act down Republicans’ throats, with Barack Obama’s blessing, leaving no room for possible compromise that might have scaled down the sweeping scope of the act and reassured a nervous public. The White

House was utterly derelict in its leadership role in this matter, giving its generals on the Hill full rein. The result was an unpopular initiative that remains so. This, however, is no excuse for what we can expect probably until next year’s midterm elections. If the polls are correct and this long national nightmare continues, the Republicans may find themselves twisting slowly in the wind — to continue the Watergate metaphor. The tea party adherents in the House, elected as the result of anger over Obamacare, don’t seem to understand there are times when the public demands statesmanship. Inflexibility against all odds and reason is a prescription for political disaster. While a numerical advantage makes it unlikely that Republicans would lose control of the House, GOP viability in the Senate and the White House may be damaged for some time to come. More dangerous for our system is the possibility that a third party — one that splits off the moderates from the radicals — might emerge from this turmoil. We’ve heard all these dire predictions before in times of stress, but there is no ignoring the evidence of a cataclysmic reaction by Americans and the rest of the world over current lawmakers’ intransigence. Should the fiscal horror that still lurks ahead become more than a specter, a political revolution might be in the offing. We might contemplate taking the stairs or jumping out the window.

Support group an important part of breast cancer recovery By CONNIE COUSINS correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — A diagnosis of breast cancer is not a single-problem burden. It involves so many facets of a woman’s life. A breast cancer survivor will tell you that facing the disease, searching for the best treatment and dealing with the physical aspects are only part of the story. Every woman struck with breast cancer has questions. She may ask, “What will people say?� Or, “How do I reassure my kids?� Or, “Will my husband still find me attractive?� Those are a few of the areas where a support group can be a real help. To know that you are not alone in your thoughts and your struggles brings an oasis of relief to a woman who may feel abandoned and hopeless. Aileen Galley is the administrative director of the Penn State Cancer Institute of the Mounty Nittany Medical Center. “We have an active group that meets

the first Monday of every month and on any meeting night, we might have eight to 15 women attending,� Galley said. According to Galley, the support group is an open-ended one. Persons come and go according to their own needs and schedules. Some have found help and friendship there and have stayed for years. Others take from the group what they can and feel ready to move on in a few sessions. Carol Hodes attends the breast cancer support group. She said that support groups are a good source of information and a way to stay updated about activities for survivors. “Often we are updated about research and new treatment methods. I had been with a group in another part of the state just after I was diagnosed. Interacting with the group members was reassuring as I faced additional surgery. The Mount Nittany Medical Center has been very active with speakers on topics such as nutrition and exercise therapy,� Hodes said.

Amanda Richards has been attending the group since shortly after her February 2012 diagnosis. “It was very helpful to hear from others who have also gone through treatment. The doctors can’t tell you everything and I got lots of useful advice from the group members about how they felt physically going through surgery and treatment,� Richards said. Richards speaks with newer members because she wants to be there for women who are just starting on this path, just like the group was there for her. Diane Crebs, who has only been attending meetings for a few months, said she saw an announcement in the paper and at first the times didn’t work for her with her business schedule. Then one day she had a cancellation and she went. “It’s on my calendar each month now. I’ve found everyone in the group to be supportive. I have been out of treatment for 10 years,� Crebs said. “Once you’ve had cancer, it never completely goes away. It is

nice to be there for other women who need the support. I wish there had been a group when I was first diagnosed.� From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., on Monday, Nov. 4, a genetics counselor will speak to the support group. Rio C. Stenner, from the cancer genetics program at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, will present a talk on breast cancer and genetic counseling. Stenner received a bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology from Vanderbilt University and a master’s degree in genetic counseling from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. She is board certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling and her special interests include hereditary cancer syndromes, pediatric genetics, biochemical genetics outreach and education. Friends and family members are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Galley at (814) 234-6787 or agalley@mountnittany.org.

J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital offers softer mammograms From Gazette staff reports HUNTINGDON — J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Imaging Center in Huntingdon now provides high-tech, soft touch mammography for all women. The facility combines full-field digital mammography with a new breast cushion that dramatically eases the discomfort many women feel when they get a mammogram. In addition, women can choose to have a 3-D mammogram, the newest FDA approved technology for breast imaging. MammoPad creates a softer, warmer mammogram and has been clinically dem-

onstrated to reduce discomfort for most women. Selenia digital mammography incorporates revolutionary imaging technology that provides incredibly sharp images. MammoPad and Selenia digital mammography together provide a more positive experience for women. J.C. Blair’s Women’s Imaging Center is a certified Pink Ribbon Facility, a distinction awarded only to an elite group of health care facilities. By offering women a softer mammogram, the hospital hopes to increase the number of area women who follow recommendations for regular screenings. Selenia digital mammography offers a

number of other practical advantages and patient conveniences. Because there is no waiting for film to be developed, the time patients spend in the breast center can be significantly reduced, as can the need for repeat exams due to under or over exposure. Digital images are easily stored and transferred electronically, eliminating the dependency on one set of original films, which can be misfiled or lost in transit Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in their lives. The stage at which breast cancer is detected

influences a woman’s survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 97 percent. J.C. Blair is a community, not-for-profit health care organization with the primary mission of offering high quality, acute health care and preventive medical care in a caring and compassionate manner to all people who live in, work in, or visit Huntingdon and its surrounding areas. The center will provide care and services without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age, sexual orientation or ability to pay.

Local author’s book features rock ‘n’ roll tale for tots By LAUREL SANDERS Special to The Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — School visits by published authors create memorable experiences for children. It’s not often that the visiting celebrity is the parent of a student in the school. Such was the case when State College author Richard Frank visited Grace Lutheran Preschool and Kindergarten to read aloud his first published children’s book, “Dogger’s Garage Band: Let’s Play Together.” The book is authored by Frank and illustrated by Cory Geishauser, a professional illustrator who was previously an artist on the set of “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood” and a former high school friend. The book was published last spring. A note on the cover, which shows a kids’ band merrily making music, states, “Parental Advisory: Awesome Content,” enticing parents to open the book. As they turn the pages, they discover clever threads that are woven into the story. Aiming to ensure parental readers are as enthralled with the 50th reading as the first, the story includes familiar expressions from the rock ‘n’ roll era that recall fond memories. They also

sound cool to children and are fun for them to hear and repeat. Frank introduces Dogger and three school friends, who form a garage band to play hip-hop and rock ‘n’ roll. The story follows their friendship as Dogger tries to take the lead in all parts of the band, nearly loses his friends, and eventually comes to realize that a band is as much about friendship and teamwork as it is about music. Parents reading the book aloud get to voice conventional expressions like “coo-coo-ca-choo,” “abso-rockin-lutely,” and “tickle the keys,” adding a rich array of verbal colors to the story. Frank is a veteran marketing executive who worked for a Major League Baseball team as well as a national weather company. Although he has won numerous advertising industry awards, his inspiration primarily came from experiences with his three children, who all enjoy music. Eager to help them to learn life lessons in a way that would be fun and easy to remember, he began telling stories. Although the first one about Dogger is now finished, it is just the beginning of his adventures. Frank’s first book teaches that it is im-

‘Rams on the Run’ raises funds for schools By SAM STITZER

pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — The Parent Teacher Organization of Penns Valley Elementary and the Parent Teacher Group of Penns Valley Intermediate held their first “Rams on the Run” fundraiser on Oct. 17. The idea of the event was to encourage kids to embrace fitness and have fun while helping raise money for the school. Prior to the event, physical education teachers gave students some practice runs to prepare. During the event, each teacher’s class was given a 15-minute time slot in the school gym, where the students ran or walked for a 15-minute period. The day had a party atmosphere, with music playing and encouragement for the students supplied by Ike the Spike and the Penns Valley Ram mascot. Members of the Penns Valley High School cross country team served as leaders of the runs, helping to pace the younger students. Runners ran on an oval track around the perimeter of the gym, and if they tired out, they could move to a smaller oval where they could

slow down to a walking pace. After about 10 minutes of running, most students moved to the walking area, but a few future track stars were seen running at full speed for the entire 15-minute period. For this fundraiser, students solicited donations from family, friends and neighbors. Participants’ names were entered into a raffle for several prizes donated by local businesses. For every $100 they raised, runners had their names entered in a raffle for a Kindle Fire tablet. Event organizer Nicole Wolfe said their group received planning assistance from Tara Michaels of Fit for Funds, a company which helps organize and run similar fitnessbased fundraising events in the central Pennsylvania area. “Hopefully after two years of her support we’ll be able to take it on our own and run it,” said Wolfe. According to Wolfe, the funds raised went to support the students’ field trips, teacher appreciation events through the school year, and other activities designed to enrich the students’ time at school.

Howard Fire Company hosts Punkin’ Chunkin’ festival By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

HOWARD — The public address announcer counted down — “Three, two, one, fire!” — and a loud “whoosh” emanated from an onager, a torsion-type catapult. The pumpkin was a barely visible speck in the gray sky over the lake at Bald Eagle State Park. A few seconds later, it hit the lake with a huge splash, bringing cheers, applause and laughter from a crowd of nearly 20,000 people. Similar scenes were repeated multiple times during the third annual Punkin’ Chunkin’ Fall Festival, held by the Howard Volunteer Fire Company on Oct. 19. The event, a fundraiser for the firefighters, has attracted evergrowing numbers of spectators each year. There were eight catapults of many different types slinging pumpkins as far as 1,800 feet into the lake. The onager is the creation of Team Carbo, headed by Bob Carbo of Raleigh, N.C. His team made the trip to Howard as a warm-up for a large competition

to be held in Bridgeville, Del., in early November. “The word onager literally means ‘wild ass,’ and is the name given by the ancient Greeks to the torsion-type of catapult,” said Carbo. “Before there was gunpowder and cannons, this and the trebuchet were like heavy artillery.” Carbo designed and built the onager over a period of about three years, refining the design as he went. It uses 500 feet of braided polyester rope looped inside a 12-foot long tube. The long arm of the device is inserted through the center of the loops of rope, and the machine is cocked by a hydraulic motor which rotates the arm through a 140-degree angle to cock it. When fired, the onager releases a huge amount of energy, accelerating a pumpkin to 150 mph in a fraction of a second. Sometimes the sheer force of the acceleration disintegrates the pumpkin before it leaves the machine. This is called “pie-ing” by the chunkers. Sitting next to the onager was a machine called “Half a Bubble

Off,” brought to the festival by Team High X from Carlisle. This device uses bundles of surgical silicone rubber tubing for its power source. The catapult is cocked by a bicycle geared down by a 60-to-1 ratio to stretch the rubber. Team member Mike Smead said the catapult arm had collapsed a week before the Howard event, and his team hurried to rebuild it, changing the design somewhat. Smead said that team member Jimmy Fuller designed the machine, and that it was constructed of parts found in junkyards. “We’re not up here to throw no distance. It’s a new configuration and we just want to make sure nothing goes wrong with it,” Smead said. Smead said his team will attend the Delaware competition next month. “They’ll have 110 machines at that event,” he said. Besides the chunkers, the beach area was lined with rows of food and craft vendors, and, of course, a vendor selling pumpkins. The Life Flight helicopter was also on display.

Kevin Dare Foundation has helmets to share By CONNIE COUSINS

correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — The Kevin Dare Foundation is giving out free helmets through Boy Scout troops, sports teams and the Centre County Youth Service Bureau. The KD Pro helmet, valued at nearly $100, was developed and manufactured in partnership with Simpson Racing. The helmet meets and exceeds ASTM requirements for snow sports, skateboarding and pole vaulting. The helmets are also being used for rock-climbing, equestrian riding and bicycling. “During some of the events where the helmets have been distributed, we have been asked to speak about head injury in sports, including concussion prevention and signs of a concussion, and reaction times and treatment for injured youth. This talk is proving to be especially useful for parents and coaches,” said Samantha Russell, director of the Kevin Dare Foundation. According to Russell, the founda-

Parents, coaches, youth leaders and anyone else may contact us to arrange for helmets,” said Russell. “The helmets come is sizes S/M and L/XL, but both versions also offer inserts to create a more custom fit.”

The Kevin Dare Foundation’s recent golf tournament raised more than $100,000 for disabled and ill student-athletes. The money helps athletes continue their educations when athletic scholarships are no longer possible, and also provides books, computers or other aids. If interested in obtaining a helmet, contact Russell at (814) 231-2249 or email srussell@kevindare.com.

Story Corps gathers Penns Valley history for radio program By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — Personnel from WPSU’s Story Corps recently visited the Old Gregg School Community Center in Spring Mills to gather stories of local history, traditions and organizations from citizens of the Penns Valley area. Story Corps’ workers travel to communities throughout WPSU’s 13-county listening area, recording interviews with local citizens in an effort to document and preserve the history of the area. Interviewer Emily Reddy noted that many older citizens have related interesting personal histories and stories of how life used to be in the area. “It’s a way to get people in the communities we serve onto our airways, and make them a part of WPSU and what we do,” Reddy said.

Jim Zubler, Andrea Ferich and Tom Doman of the Penns Valley Conservation Association spoke with Reddy on Oct. 19. They noted that their group has done 25,000 feet of stream bank improvement, planted more than 10,000 trees and shrubs, and constructed 81 in-stream fish habitats in the area since it was formed. They praised the Story Corps project. “We’ve lost the oral history tradition. This (project) is sort of a revival of that. It’s a much more personable way of communication, and it’s a very commendable endeavor on the part of WPSU,” Zubler said. Interviewees each receive a CD of their interview. “Some people said they listened to it on their way home,” Reddy said. She noted that each 40-minute interview will be edited to three minutes for airing. The programs will be aired beginning early next year.

SPRING MILLS — An October tradition in Penns Valley is the placing of about 20 scarecrows in front of the Penns Valley Elementary and Intermediate School along Route 45. The scarecrows are constructed by sixth grade students and stand guard in front of the school like a row of ghoulish sentries. According to sixth grade teacher Shelley Feltenberger, the scarecrows are the product of an annual class project which is aimed at building the students’ teamwork skills. Each group of five students designs and builds one scarecrow, with some guidance from their teachers and assistants. Feltenberger says the students spend about an hour and a half planning their scarecrows. “They have to come up with a theme, and decide what materials will be needed. They make a plan for who is bringing what materials, and they have to pull it

all together before they build,” she said. “They’re learning planning and compromising.” The students spend another hour and a half building the scarecrows and attaching them to wooden stakes driven into the ground. Students must decide on methods to attach the scarecrows (duct tape, cable ties, etc.) to the stakes to make them resist wind and weather, since the scarecrows will remain in place for the entire month. The scarecrow designs show plenty of creativity and diversity. Some of them have sports themes, some have Halloween themes, some are cartoon characters, and some seem to defy any classification. Feltenberger said that the students look forward to this project. “It’s one of the things they look forward to being able to do when they get to sixth grade,” she said. Scarecrows are built by five classes of sixth graders taught by Feltenberger, Cassie Ward, Kathy Kapinus, Karen McCaffrey and Monica Kieffer.

HOLLIDAYSBURG — Patriotic songs filled the air at the Hap Arnold Activity Room at the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home on Oct. 6. Members of the Bellefonte Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, veterans and staff lifted their voices in unison as each military service song — Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force — was performed. The musical afternoon kicked off

with the “Star Spangled Banner” and was followed by time-honored favorites such as “Yankee Doodle,” “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” “Columbia,” “The Gem of the Ocean” and “God Bless America.” Red, white and blue beads and small American flags were distributed to each veteran. The afternoon concluded with refreshments and heartwarming conversations. “It was an enjoyable afternoon to visit with the courageous men and women who served our country in

wartime and peace from years past,” said one DAR member. The Bellefonte Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution was organized on Oct. 10, 1895. Carol Rossman Corman currently serves as the Chapter’s regent. Women with ancestors who assisted the cause of the American Revolution are eligible for membership.

PENN STATE VS. OHIO STATE n 8 P.M.

ONE TOUGH

Nittany Lions facing undefeated Ohio State By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — There is no question that the Penn State defense deserves a large portion of the credit for the Nittany Lions’ incredible four-overtime victory over Michigan at Beaver Stadium two weeks ago. Yes, Christian Hackenberg, Allen Robinson, Bill Belton, and Brandon MosebyFelder had big days for the offense, but the defense stood up when it really counted. Michigan did not get close to scoring a touchdown in overtime as the PSU defensive line continued to dominate the Wolverine offensive linemen — as it had for most of the night. Michigan managed only 149 yards rushing in that game, but 121 of those yards were gained by quarterback Devin Gardner, who gained much of that yardage scrambling out of the pocket. The rest of Michigan’s backfield totaled only 28 yards on 28 carries. Of Michigan’s 389 yards of total offense, Gardner accounted for 361 of those after including his 240 yards passing (and three touchdowns) spread out to six different receivers. Now, Penn State travels on Saturday to No. 4 Ohio State, and the problem of the elusive, mobile quarterback with a strong arm who can manufacture big plays out of nothing does not go away. It gets worse. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, if anything, is quicker and more elusive than Gardner. After being injured earlier in the season, Miller seems to be rounding into form. Last Saturday he played what Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer called his best game overall this season in OSU’s comefrom-behind victory over Iowa, completing 22 of 27 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for another 102 yards and kept many plays alive with his quickness and scrambling ability. Ohio State presents other problems with its offensive line and running backs as well. While Michigan decried the play of its offensive line against Penn State, Ohio

CHALLENGE TIM WEIGHT/ For The Gazette

PENN STATE will need a big game out of Bill Belton on Saturday night.

State’s offensive line took over the game against Iowa. Carlos Hyde, a tough, 6-foot, 2 3 5 pound northand-south runner gained 149 yards and two touchdowns in the Iowa game to lead a rushing attack that put up 288 yards. All due, according to Meyer, to the play of OSU offensive line. “Second half (vs. Iowa) is probably our best football we’ve played in a while,” Meyer said. “Our offensive line played exceptional. Really, really pleased with the offensive line.” And Ohio State’s offensive line coach, Ed Warriner, was also very pleased. “Because of their consistency throughout the game,” he said, “very aggressive physical approach and the grades are what they are. They graded out high, but that was because they were consistent throughout the game and executed well. “So, yeah, I think collectively as a group of five guys put together there wasn’t two or three guys played really well and a couple of guys played poorly or average, it was five guys played at a high level.” All of this allows the Buckeyes to spread their offense across the entire field. Miller uses short screens and flares to both sidelines which spread the defenses out and give Hyde (and Miller) room to operate. It also puts intense pressure on de-

fenders to make tackles one-on-one in space. Penn State has seen this style of play before — against Central Florida and Indiana — and it will be up to the defense to keep Miller and OSU under control. “It’s a very difficult challenge, playing a guy like Braxton Miller,” Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien said at his weekly news conference on Tuesday. “My opinion, one of the top five players in the country, really good football player who has improved immensely since being in the system. His got great grasp of the system, he threw the ball very well against Iowa, and if he gets outside the pocket, he’s a dangerous guy. “Sometimes those things are going to happen. We’ve got to play hard, and with great effort, and do everything we can to keep him in there. But if he gets out, we have to make sure we understand our scramble rules.” On the other side of the ball, even

though its defense gives up fewer than 20 points per game, Ohio State was not nearly as enamored with the play of its defense against the Hawkeyes. Iowa had a week off coming into the game, just like Penn State, and the Hawkeyes were able to move the ball against OSU. They used a balanced attack that employed a heavy use of their tight ends, and Ohio State had trouble adjusting. Iowa led at halftime, 17-10, but three long, time consuming scoring drives by Ohio State in the second half told the story and OSU prevailed. When asked if Ohio State would be ready for Penn State’s passing and its tight ends, Meyer game said, “We better be.” Penn State will look to improve its running game this week. The Nittany Lions rushed for fewer than 100 yards against Michigan, and it will be important to keep Ohio State honest and not able to target freshman quarterback Hackenberg. This game will be a big challenge for Belton, Zach Zwinak, and Akeel Lynch. And for Hackenberg, it will be another step in his development — playing in the Horseshoe, against a highly ranked team, in front of 100,000 hostile fans. Hackenberg showed his mettle in the second half and overtime in the Michigan game, and this will be another chance for him to progress. “I think this is a great opportunity,” O’Brien said about the game. “When you are playing teams like this. You know, Penn State and Ohio State, and you think about what that means in college football and the tradition of these two schools. Two great coaching staffs, with a lot of good players on both sides of the ball, it’s a lot of fun. Game day is the best day of the week for me. “We are just really looking forward to the challenge, and it is a challenge. No. 4 in the country, 19 games in a row, we realize that it is a huge, huge challenge, but we are looking forward to it.” Things will have to fall into place if the Nittany Lions are to stop that 19-game Buckeye win streak, but as we were reminded again in the Michigan game, Penn State is a team that is full of surprises.

Buckeye defense still troubling Coach Meyer By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Your favorite team’s defensive coordinator might get heartburn watching Ohio State’s offense, but when it comes to the defensive side of the ball, the Buckeyes are a little less dominant. That’s not to suggest Ohio State has a bad defense, they give up two yards less yards on average than Penn State’s defensive unit, but much like Penn State, the Buckeyes aren’t quite as airtight in the secondary as they have been in years past. It doesn’t guarantee a Penn State victory,

but it is enough to give the Nittany Lions’ a chance. And this worries head coach Urban Meyer, especially after Iowa was able to maintain long drives against the Buckeyes last weekend in Columbus. “I think the adjustments need to be made quicker when they give us something we have not seen,” Meyer said. “The first three drives were alarming. I don’t think our defensive line played very well. I think what happened was you have some good emotion in that stadium and you go 13 play drive, and you let the air out of the stadium. That’s got to come from our coaches and players. Very disappointed.

Can it be fixed? Absolutely. We’re still a good rush defense. We’ve got to continue to work because we’ve dealt with some injuries and depth issues and we’ve got to play better. Very, very concerned.” For Meyer, the defense’s ability to improve will be key to finishing a second straight season undefeated. Ohio State’s offense is capable of putting up points when needed, but opponents in the Big Ten are hanging around with the Buckeyes deep into the second half thanks in large part to the Ohio State defense. In terms of the numbers it isn’t as bad as it sounds. Ohio State gives up only an average of 333 yards of offense per game.

Penn State on the flip side has averaged 335 yards allowed per game. What is problematic for the Buckeyes is a pass defense giving up 240 or more yards per game at an average of 11 yards per catch. While the Buckeye defense has given up just under 100 yards on the ground per game, the Ohio State secondary has been prone to letting a big play or two slip past them. When Iowa took on Ohio State in a losing effort last weekend, the Hawkeyes were able to move the ball thanks to short passes and routes designed to get tight ends Defense, Page 18

With Frazier back, Coach Chambers is optimistic By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State head coach Patrick Chambers was optimistic during last season’s Media Day about his 2012-13 team. He had a young and relatively inexperienced squad, but he also had Tim Frazier, a first-team All Big-Ten performer, and the plan was for Frazier and fellow guard D.J. Newbill to lead that team back into the conversation in the Big Ten. Disaster struck in Game 4; Frazier was lost for the season, and that young team was left to fend for itself. Last Thursday, at Media Day 2013, Chambers was optimistic once again — probably even more so — and with good reason. Frazier is back, and so are most of those other young players who now have a season of experience doing things they would not have been asked to do were it not for Frazier’s absence. Penn State was 10-21 last season, but showed steady improvement, with some lapses, and finished the season scoring almost 70 points per game over its last seven games. That stretch included a big home upset of then-No. 4 and Final Four participant Michigan. Now, the questions about the 2013 team begin with Frazier’s health. “I like where he (Frazier) is,” Chambers said. “I gained great confidence from the foreign trip. He got knocked down, he played against grown men and he responded really well. “It’s not so much the physical aspect; I think it’s the mental aspect. I think in his mind he felt that he’s back and he feels good and he’s out there showing it through the opening scrimmage last Saturday. He had 21 points, he did a great job in our statistical categories and he feels very comfortable out there. He’s fearless. “We used Adrian Peterson as a guy to look at, as a role model because of what he did when he was injured. I think Tim adapted to that and accepted that and this is what you have.”

Newbill will join Frazier in what figures to be a very potent back court. Newbill’s first season with Penn State last year was an unqualified success. He led Penn State in scoring (16.3 ppg), assists (4.0) and rebounds (5.0). He finished fourth in the Big Ten in scoring, and he now has almost 800 career points and eleven 20-point games. Up front, Penn State returns 6-foot-6 junior forward Ross Travis (7.0 ppg, 7.4 rpg), who began to really blossom in the latter stages of last season, 6-7 sophomore Brandon Taylor, 6-9 sophomore Donovan Jack, and 6-9 senior Alan Wisniewski. Joining that group will be 7-0 sophomore transfer Jordan Dickerson, but he will not be eligible this season due to the NCAA transfer rule. John Johnson, a 6-1 guard transfer from Pitt who will be eligible after the first semester, 6-3 Allen Roberts, 6-1 senior Zach Cooper, and 6-3 junior Kevin Montminy round out the returning veterans. In addition there are four freshmen joining the team: 6-6 guard Payton Banks, 6-0 guard Graham Woodward, highly recruited 6-3 guard Geno Thorpe, and 6-10 forward Julian Moore. In all, Penn State returns 10 lettermen, including three of its top five scorers and rebounders from last season — more than enough to spark some optimism in Chambers. But can they shoot? “We have guys making shots,” Chambers said. “We tweaked D.J. Newbill’s shot in the spring; he looks terrific. He worked on hand positioning, firing through the ball and his eyes; just three simple things that he focused on. “I would say Ross Travis is doing a much better job. The ball’s in front of his head. He looks really good, his weight’s forward, just little things like that. “Tim Frazier’s shooting at a high clip. I think you’re going to be really impressed with Allen Roberts, he can really stroke it. He’ll play two or three. He can hit the three, no question, but he can do more, he can put it on the ground. I would say right now, he’s probably our best 3-point

shooter. “Brandon Taylor’s right there, Graham Woodward’s right there. Graham is shooting at a really high clip, he reminds me a lot of Jordan Hull, just the way he competes, the way he plays. Graham is maybe more of a point guard, I felt Jordan was more of a two. “We have some shooters, we have some skill. Donovan Jack at the five is drilling some threes. I know that’s going to be a question here today, so let’s just get it out of the way now. It’s going to be our positive, because he can shoot threes, he’s going to bring big men away from the basket. That’s going to help us.” Unlike the previous two years, this team will be looking to get up and down the floor much more to take advantage of those athletes and shooters. “I’m not a big, stocky guy,” Frazier said, “and speed is one of my best assets, so any time I’m able to use that is going to make me feel that much better. I think it helps us a lot as a team, as well. “We’re fast guys, especially those young freshmen; everybody gets up and down the court. I think that’s going to benefit us a lot to be able to get up and down the court when it’s needed.” Coach Chambers would not talk about specific goals the team has in mind but, rather, that the team had to concentrate on

getting better every day. “We have goals,” he said. “I may have a number in my head but I don’t think it’s fair to put these kids through that. They already have enough stress on them. They know what people are saying about them. They know what the preseason publications are picking for them. We all see it. But we put it aside, stick to what’s going on in our locker room, in our practice facility, that’s all we’re worried about. “We’re worried about getting better that day. Being the best Tim Frazier you can be that day. Being the best D.J. Newbill you can be that day. Doing the mirror test. Did you give it your all today? If you do that, if you hold each other accountable and, more importantly, hold yourself accountable, the wins will follow. “I like this team. I feel good about this team. I like the depth on this team. I like the personality of this team and I really like our leadership. Tim, D.J., Ross, Alan Wisniewski, they get it. They get what I’m about, they get what the attitude is all about and that’s 50 percent of the battle. Penn State will open its season against Wagner on Saturday, Nov. 9, with a nonleague schedule that includes games against Penn, LaSalle, St. John’s, Pitt, Marshall and Princeton. The Nittany Lions open Big Ten play at home against Michigan State on New Year’s Eve.

Defense, from page 15

three times this season — has time to pass he can exploit a still shaky Ohio State secondary, and if he can pass the ball it opens up chances to run it. It’s one of football’s most simple understandings, that the pass helps open up the run and vice-versa, but as Penn State looks to pull off the upset it’ll come down to the little things to win the game. Late-game heroics that saw Penn State catapult into a four-overtime thriller just over a week ago won’t be enough to beat the Buckeyes. If Ohio State gets a substantial lead, even an average Buckeye defense will play well enough to ensure that No. 4 ranking isn’t lost just yet.

While Ohio State still came out on top, Iowa was effective moving the ball without doing anything particularly flashy. “They’re a little bit better throwing team than Iowa, “ Meyer said of Penn State’s passing attack. “And Iowa hurt us.” On the Penn State side of things the Nittany Lions will need a strong game from Christian Hackenberg, and a strong game from the offensive line.

Big plays spark Rams over Bucks By JUSTIN PACKER correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — It has been quite the roller coaster for Penns Valley head coach Martin Tobias this year. The Rams kicked of 2013 with a victory, followed by a four-game losing streak and, heading into Friday’s game against Bucktail, PV was riding in on a two-game winning streak. The roller coaster kept ticking up as the Rams found big play after big play to down the visiting Bucks, 56-28. “We played a good and physical opponent,” Tobias said. “We needed to get into a game like this and the guys responded nicely.” The Rams scored five of their eight touchdowns on plays of more than 50 yards. “I think it is a case of just making plays,” coach Tobias said. “We have a couple different guys who can do some things and that was nice to see. At the same time, we can’t always have that happen. We need to stay consistent. There were moments that we lost our focus.” Cameron Tobias was responsible for three of the big plays, one way or another. The senior standout quarterback connected with Luke Weaver for 56 yards, found Wyatt Sharp on a screen pass for 58 yards, and finally broke a read-option run for 89 yards. Sharp had quite the night himself, as the bruiser back softened up the Bucktail defense early and put up three scores. He added two more touchdowns on ground (4, 15) — finishing his night with seven carries for 59 yards, one reception for 58 and three touchdowns. “Wyatt has continued to improve as the season goes on,” Coach Tobias said. “It is a case of trying to take what teams will give us. He did a great job establishing the physical game we wanted to display tonight.” Taylor Collison and Chase Collison each added runs of 54 and 53, respectively, to help aid the Rams in victory. “It is good to get all these kids involved,” Coach Tobias said. “We were able to get some younger guys, like Chase, a chance to get some reps. It shows them what they need to improve on and what it takes to be a starter.”

PENNS VALLEY’S Wyatt Sharp breaks through the Bucktail defense during Friday night’s game at Spring Mills. The Rams racked up nearly 350 yards of offense on the ground en route to outgaining the Bucks, 504 yards to 338 yards. It would be the Bucks who struck first blood in this outing, as Willie Hopkins took a screen pass from Trent Risley and went 29 yards for the score. Down 8-0, PV went to work. The highpowered offense of the Rams put up six scores before Bucktail could find an answer. Sharp punched home the first touchdown with a 3-yard touchdown run and Weaver reeled in his 56-yard touchdown catch to give the Rams a 15-8 after one quarter of play. In the second quarter, Sharp kept things going when he mowed over the Bucktail defense on his way to a 58-yard touchdown off a quick screen pass. Later in the frame, Sharp bowled over the Bucks for 15

yards, on his way to giving PV a 29-8 lead. Cameron Tobias landed the last big blow of the half, as the Rams’ quarterback carved up the Bucks, covering 89 yards on a read-option. Heading into the half, Penns Valley held a 36-8 lead. Coming out of the half, the Rams picked up right where they left off in the first half as Taylor Collison rattled off a 54-yard touchdown run, giving PV a 42-8 lead just two minutes into the second half. Bucktail broke up the Ram scoring route, as they marched 65 yards on 16 plays, capped by a Hopkins 5-yard touchdown run, cutting into the PV lead, 42-16 in the closing minute of the third quarter. Ben Alexander got PV back on the board, with a 40-yard keeper, giving the Rams a 49-16 advantage with 9:23 remain-

ing in the game. Chase Collison broke the Rams’ fifth play of over 50 yards, as he broke a 53-yard touchdown run, pushing the PV lead to 56-16 with 6:15 left to play. With 2:43 to go in the game, Risley picked up the Bucks, with a one-yard keeper, closing the gap, 56-22. On the final play of game, the Bucks took to the air one last time, as Risley bombed a 40-yard pass to Hopkins for a touchdown — putting the final score at 56-28. Penns Valley (4-4) will look to continue their winning ways when they travel to face Tyrone. “We have a lot of work ahead of us,” Coach Tobias said. “We need to be more consistent and be prepared. Tyrone is one of the best in the district. We need to stay focused and play our style of football.”

Scarlet Dragons rout Red Raiders By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

ROARING SPRING — It was another tough night at the office for the Bellefonte Area High School football team. Central scored early and often in a 63-7 rout of the Red Raiders on Friday night at the Roaring Spring Athletic Field. The Scarlet Dragons put up 35 firstquarter points en route to a 49-7 halftime lead. The injuries are starting to pile up for the Raiders, who fell to 0-8. “We ran out of guys, quite honestly,” said first-year head coach Shanon Manning. “The injury bug has caught us. We lost more guys tonight and we’re playing a lot of guys out of position. It’s a tough situation. It’s taken a toll.” The Dragons (6-2) scored just about

every way imaginable in the opening frame. There were two passing touchdowns, two rushing touchdowns and an interception return. Central head coach Dave Baker was pleased with the fire he saw from his squad over the first 24 minutes of play. “I thought we played well tonight,” Baker said. “We were efficient and we didn’t make a lot of mistakes.” After a turnover-free performance against Penns Valley in Week 7, the turnovers reared their ugly head again on the Red Raiders. Sophomore quarterback Mark Armstrong threw a pair of interceptions and the Raiders also lost two fumbles. “Give Central credit,” Manning said. “It wasn’t a case of us just putting the ball on the ground. They have a lot to do with it. I

don’t want to take away from Central’s effort. They played well.” Central got on the board first, scoring on a 40-yard run by Bradi Moore just 2:09 into the game. Austin Cunningham made it 14-0 when he broke loose for a 76-yard run. The Dragons would score two more times before the Raiders would find the end zone. Trailing 28-0, Nick Jabco made some nifty moves and got free along the sideline on a 75-yard kickoff return. That made it 28-7 with 3:46 left in the first quarter. But Central would answer just 35 seconds later when Cunningham connected with Moore for a 46-yard touchdown pass. Just like that, it was 35-7. “It’s easy, but it’s not a lot of fun,” Baker said. “In a game like this, you just try to

control things and do the best you can. You feel bad for the other team. It’s a hard situation for them. You really don’t want to tell kids not to play hard. That’s not what the game is all about.” In the second quarter, Central tacked on two more scores, pushing the lead to 49-7. Unbelievably, the Dragons were still throwing the football with 3:33 left in the third quarter. A touchdown pass with 3:33 left in the frame would be the final TD of the night. The 13-yard touchdown pass pushed Central’s lead to 56 points. “It’s not right to go in there and not try,” Baker explained. Banged up Bellefonte will try to get its first win of the season on Friday night when it visits Bald Eagle Area for the second meeting between the teams in 2013.

State College High wins on Senior Night, 34-0 By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — The Little Lions have had ups and downs all season, but senior quarterback Patrick Irwin wasn’t interested in his final game at Memorial Field going sour. Irwin was instrumental all night on the ground and through the air, en route to a Little Lions 34-0 victory over Carlisle on Friday night. State College opened the game on defense, but a Carlisle fumble on its own 34 set up a short field for the Little Lions. State

College responded quickly and would eventually punch the ball in with 8:41 to go in the first quarter. The extra point was wide right to give the Little Lions a 6-0 lead. Carlisle would continue to struggle on offense. State College would get the ball deep in its own territory and drive down the field thanks to two long Irwin runs that set up a short scoring situation. The Little Lions appeared to score on third down, but were ruled short setting up a fourth-and-one from the one. Irwin followed his blocks and the touchdown was

no issue, as the Little Lions took a 14-0 lead following a successful two-point conversion. The Bison would get a break after a State College fumbled punt but could not capitalize. State College would score once more during the half to take a 21-0 lead into the break. Both teams would battle in the early stages of the second half, but State College would eventually extend its lead to 28-0 with under a minute to go in the third quarter from four yards out. Before taking to the bench after a strong

performance, Irwin left Memorial Field with one final note, a 73-yard scamper that gave State College a 34-0 lead and improved the team to 4-4 on the year. The winless Bison are now 0-8 on the year. The Little Lions will play the next two games on the road; the first is against Mifflin County next week. Depending on how playoff races sort out, the Little Lions could find themselves in postseason play back at Memorial Field. But for now, the 34-0 victory is more than an appropriate way to finish out the year at home.

Clearfield rolls past Bald Eagle Area By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

HYDE — Undefeated Clearfield is a team that forces opponents to pick their poison. The Bison average more than 41 points per game, and they almost dare teams to concentrate too much on one facet of their multi-pronged offense. The Bison always have something else — or someone else — they can go to. Ask Bald Eagle Area. Last Friday, the 4-3 Eagles’ defense kept Clearfield’s versatile Division I recruit Christian Lezzer relatively in check, but the Bison switched to Plan B: Tyler Stratton. Stratton, a 6-0, 188 lb. senior running back, picked up the slack for Lezzer in a big way. He ran 19 times for 201 yards in the game and scored all four of Clearfield’s touchdowns, including two bolts of 60plus yards in the first half that allowed the Bison to take control of the game and eventually pull away for a 31-6 victory.

With the game midway through the first quarter and neither team taking any advantage, Stratton broke through the right side of the BEA line and scampered almost untouched for a 62-yard score and a 7-0 Bison lead. Then, in quick succession, he scored on a 3-yard run after a BEA turnover and then broke clear again for a 60-yarder just as the second period was getting under way. The result was a 21-0 Clearfield lead that the Eagles would not be able to overcome. “They moved him (Lezzer) around last week,” BEA coach Jack Tobias said. “He was out at wide out and everywhere else and didn’t run the ball as much as he had in previous games. “Tyler Stratton is a formidable runner. We watched his highlights all year, and we knew he was going to be tough.” The Clearfield defense was also tough, and as important to the victory as Stratton. The Bison allowed BEA just 95 yards of total offense in the game which, cou-

pled with four Eagle turnovers, limited the Eagle offense to two late field goals by Tyler Schall. BEA had two fumbles, two interceptions, and punted six times. The Eagles mounted only one drive of over 11 yards and that was a seven-play, 65-yard march that ended with a 30-yard Schall field goal in the fourth quarter. Otherwise, the night belonged to the Bison. “We can’t turn the ball over three times in the first half,” Tobias said, “and give up two big runs. And we weren’t able to move the ball effectively. I thought they (Clearfield) played a great football game. “We weren’t able to get on blocks to create seams and get things going vertical. A lot of sideways running, and running sideways, you are not gaining yards. They have great team speed.” Clearfield completed its scoring late in the third quarter with a 13-play, 70-yard drive that culminated with another 3-yard run by Stratton.

That score put the Bison ahead 31-0. To its credit, BEA kept playing and scored twice in the fourth quarter. The first was Schall’s 30-yarder at the 8:10 mark, and then as time ran out, Schall connected on a 40-yard attempt to make the final score 31-6. “We knew coming up here was going to be a tough beat,” Tobias said, “and they played a great ballgame tonight.” Bald Eagle, now 4-4 on the season and fighting for a playoff position in District 6, will next play host to Bellefonte on Friday night. The Eagles handled Bellefonte in the first meeting between the two schools in Week 1, but much has happened since then, and Tobias and his players know the importance of the game. “Huge game,” Tobias said. “Bragging rights, Curtain Bowl. The kids know what’s on the line: playoff spot is on the line, Curtain Bowl’s on the line, and pride is on the line. They know that and we’ll be back to work Monday and ready to go on Friday.”

Week 9: Down the stretch they come By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

There are just two weeks left in the high school football regular season. Here’s a closer look at this week’s games:

STATE COLLEGE (4-4) AT MIFFLIN COUNTY (4-4)

State College is coming off an impressive 34-0 win over Carlisle that improved its record overall to 4-4. This week, the Little Lions travel to Lewistown to take on its closest Mid-Penn Conference team, Mifflin County. Mifflin and SC have very similar records. Mifflin is also 4-4, and they have also beaten Carlisle, 35-14, in confer-

ence play. The Huskies a primarily a running team and they average just under 200 yards on the ground per game. Heath Hilday leads the running attack with 830 yards on 136 carries and 10 touchdowns. Junior Brice Christine is the quarterback and he completes 39 percent of his passes (26 for 67) for 541 yards and six TDs. State College has been up and down this season, but the Little Lions have won their last two conference road games against Harrisburg and Chambersburg. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Outlook — This is a big game for both teams that will likely come down to whether Mifflin can stop SC’s offense.

BELLEFONTE (0-8) AT BALD EAGLE AREA (4-4)

Bald Eagle Area ran into undefeated Clearfield last Friday, and even though the Eagles were physically a match for the Bison, Clearfield had four takeaways and struck for long touchdowns that BEA could not match. This week, Bellefonte comes to visit, and the tables will be somewhat turned. Bellefonte suffers from turnovers and giving up the long play. The Raiders had four turnovers in last week’s loss to Central, and the Dragons had six touchdowns of 35 yards or over. The longest were a 76yard run by Austin Cunningham and a 62-yarder by Brandi Moore. BEA has fast skill people like Dakota Bartley, Bryan Greene, and Bryce Greene, and the keys for Bellefonte will

Penns Valley has won three games in a row, and the Rams are scoring almost 40 points per game in that stretch. Friday, PV travels to 6-2 Tyrone for a big Mountain League contest. Tyrone beat Central Mountain handily last week and the week before lost by one point in the final minute of the game to undefeated Clearfield. James Oliver is the main threat for Tyrone and has been for the past three years. Quarterback Erik Wagner has thrown for over 1000 yards this season and 11 touchdowns, but Oliver is the go-to back when Tyrone needs yards. Kickoff at Tyrone is scheduled for 7. Outlook — Penns Valley can score and needs an win to stay in contention for a playoff spot. If the Rams can slow Oliver and the Tyrone offense (like BEA did two weeks ago), an upset is not out of the question.

CLEARFIELD (8-0) AT PHILIPSBURG-OSCEOLA (1-7)

This is a mismatch on paper, but Clearfield and P-O are natural rivals and this is a heated game no matter when it happens. Clearfield scores more than 40 points a game and has multiple offensive threats, especially D-1 recruit Christian Lezzer. The Bison also play tough defense and are sure tacklers. P-O has vastly improved over a year ago, but the Mounties still get hurt with turnovers and the big play. When healthy, Curtis Matsko, Dustin Shuey, Aaron Mason, Caleb Pepperday, and Nick Patrick can cause problems for any defense, and Nick Boumerhi is the best kicker in the area. Kickoff at P-O is set for 7 p.m. Outlook — If the Mounties can somehow slow the Bison running game and make them pass, they can be competitive in this game. P-O cannot turn the ball over or fall prey to big scoring plays early in the game.

County golfers fare well in District 6 championships By JOHN DIXON

sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — In the District 6 Girls Golf Championship, held on Penn State’s White Course, only the top finisher in Class AAA advanced to the regional event being held at Tom’s Run Golf Course in Blairsville. Ten Centre County golfers were vying for the top spot to advance to the regional tournament, with State College’s Karli Nolan posting two rounds of 89-80, 169 to easily win the AAA crown and the sole spot in the Western Regional. Bellefonte’s Kaitlyn Vogel finished fourth shooting 8490, 174. In Class AA action, Kayla Orr of Bishop McCort posted two-day scores of 81-83 for a 36-hole total 164 to win the overall title by five strokes. The top three finishers advanced to the regional event, with the other spots going

to Madison Kurg of Penn Cambria (91-82, 173) and Abby Richards of Forest Hills (9087, 177). Richards, a sophomore, beat out her sister, senior Nicole Richards, by a stroke for that final regional spot. State College won the AAA team title, 718-774, over Bellefonte. Hollidaysburg finished third with 847. State College will play in a sub-regional at Treasure Lake in DuBois for the right to advance to the state championship. “I’m really excited about winning the Class AAA individual part of this event as well as helping the team capture the team title,” exclaimed Nolan, a junior at State College. “I had to move up in the playing order after being No. 5 last year when I shot 94104, 198. I’ve been more confident and been practicing more, and I knew what my role was going to be this year, and I think I really stepped up my game.

Bastardi advances to states By JOHN DIXON

BLAIRSVILLE — What a difference a year made for St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy junior Garrett Bastardi in his quest to make the finals of the PIAA Class AA Individual Championship. During last year’s Class AA Regional, Bastardi missed the cut by nine strokes to advance to the boys’ PIAA Golf Championship. At this year’s regional, on a wet and wild day at Tom’s Run Golf Course at Chestnut Ridge Golf Resort in Blairsville, Bastardi proved to be a “mudder,” as the golfers had to deal with less than ideal weather and course conditions for a shot at a state championship. Posting a round of 3-over 75 in the brutal conditions, Bastardi claimed the sixth position as one of 20 golfers who advanced to the PIAA finals at Heritage Hills Golf Course in York, being held Monday and

Tuesday. Bastardi was six strokes off the overall lead of Keenan Hickton of Sewickly Academy, who posted a round of 69 to claim the Class AA title. State College’s Ben Gelenberg was unable to duplicate the effort that won him his second District 6 Class AAA title at Scotch Valley Country Club, missing the Class AAA cut following a round of 81. Gelenberg, a junior, finished 17th but missed the cutoff of the top 12 finishers by two shots. Fox Chapel’s Patrick Sheerer won the Class AAA individual title with a 1-under round 71. Hollidaysburg’s Hunter Shields, who lost to Gelenberg in the district finals in sudden death, placed second with an even par 72 to advance. In the girls’ Class AAA individual battle, with the top six advancing to the championship round, State College junior Karli Nolan posted a round of 105 for a 10th place finish.

“I was really excited to win the Class AAA event and am even more excited that I still have another year, but it feels great to accomplish this feat as a junior at this level.” Nolan felt the difference in her game was what was between her ears and not so much what happened on the golf course. “I knew that I had to improve my thought process when I was on the course,” said Nolan. “I know my short game is okay, but you always look for improvement and I need to be more accurate with my long game. My dad got me into golf at Mountain View Country Club when I was in the eighth grade as a stress reliever, if you can believe golf is a stress reliever,” she laughed, “but it’s been great learning and improving each time out.” For Bellefonte’s Vogel, knowing only the winner in Class AAA advanced to the regional event added extra pressure, especially when playing with the top players in

the field. “I started all right,” said Vogel of her round. “And I went out there just trying to do the best I could. I had trouble adjusting my game when I got a couple of bad breaks, a bounce here, a bounce there, that managed to take me out of my rhythm. I felt good after the first round (84) when I had a five-shot lead, but I just found my groove. So, now I wait and see where I will attend college and hopefully play golf at the next level.”

State High golf squad repeats as District 6 champions By JOHN DIXON sports@centrecountygazette.com

HOLLIDAYSBURG — Needing to play an extra hole, State College’s sophomore Ben Gelenberg won his second consecutive District 6 Class AAA title. The Little Lions team repeated as team champions in the second year of the split titles of Class AA and AAA teams. The event was held at Hollidaysburg’s Scotch Valley Country Club. The Little Lions finished with a team total of 639 in the two-day event. Hollidaysburg was second at 651 and Altoona was a distant third at 720. The Little Lions advanced to the regional team championship last Friday at Treasure Lake Country Club in DuBois. “We are very happy with the result,” said State College coach Keith Bless. “We have four of the five players heading to Treasure Lake next week. Today we were happy with the scores and it was a challenge on this course and against a very good Hollidaysburg team. I was really happy with the way the team handled things.” By winning the individual title in a playoff with Hollidaysburg’s Hunter Shields, Gelenberg advanced to the individual regionals being played at Tom’s Run Country Club in Blairsville. Gelenberg carded a 7 over 79 on Wednesday and finished the event with a 156 total. Hollidaysburg’s Hunter Shields (74-82) tied Gelenberg, the result of the Golden Tigers’ player being penalized for a rules violation that cost

him two strokes. The Little Lions’ Tyrus Gates (78-80) was third at 158. “Ben is a two-time district champ and he does very well on tough courses and in a 36-hole event,” explained Bless. “Within our team we have so much friendly competition that it keeps us all sharp. (Christian) Friberg was our medalist at the Wheeling Invitational and it’s a nice aspect that they all get along.” Hitting first in the playoffs, Shields crushed his drive onto the middle of the fairway, just the second fairway he hit the entire day. Gelenberg’s tee shot was shorter and to the right. Gelenberg’s approach shot was left of the flag, setting up a 30-foot birdie putt. Shields was unable to capitalize on his big drive and came up just short of the green. Instead of chipping, Shields chose to putt from the fringe and knocked it 10 feet past the hole. Gelenberg made a two-putt par, and Shields was unable to convert his 10-foot, downhill putt to keep the match going. Other State College scores in the event were were Friberg, 82-79; Alex Stover, 82-82; and Kevin Zuercher, 89-84. The top four scores counted each day. “Alex Stover was steady for two rounds and the best he’s played for us this year,” said Bless. “Ben had a tumultuous tournament. He made several large numbers and made a lot of birdies as well. Tyrus Gates had a tremendous tournament. He did not have anything larger than a bogey on his card and we got a good contribution from Christian.” Gates, a junior, missed out on the trip to Blairsville by two strokes shooting rounds of 78-80 for a 158 total.“I was happy that at least I didn’t have any double bogies,” chuckled Gates. “I wasn’t real happy with the 80 knowing that I had opportunities to make something happen. I knew Hunter (Shields) and Ben (Gelenberg) were struggling a little and I had my chances but as everyone said, the aeration of the greens hurt but it is what it is. I was happy with third and thought it was a total team effort.” In Class AA, St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy’s Garrett Bastardi finished third by shooting rounds of 80-77, 157 and qualified for the regional event at Tom’s Run. He finished four strokes back of Central Cambria’s Jeremy Eckenrode, who carded a 153 for the title. “(Bastardi’s) played great all summer and all year,” St. Joseph’s coach John Muto said. “It was very difficult to putt

STATE COLLEGE Area High School’s Ben Gelenberg lines up a putt at the District 6 championships. Gelenberg captured his second consecutive district title. on the greens there. He had five 3-putts and putting is the strongest part of his game. He was sort of frustrated (on Tuesday) and to come back and shoot three strokes better was quite an achievement.” Added Bastardi: “If I could have a made a few more putts, who knows, but the course had recently been aerated and the greens were tough, but everyone had the same conditions so that’s not an excuse. I hit the ball well enough, I just needed to get a few more favorable bounces. But overall, I thought I played well. And as long as I’m moving on to regionals that’s all that matters at this point.” At the PIAA Team Regionals in DuBois on Friday, State College missed qualifying for the PIAA boys’ golf championships, taking second in a three-team regional qualifier. The Little Lions shot a solid team score of 321, but finished 20 strokes behind Erie Cathedral Prep. Bradford was a distant third at 354. Tyrus Gates and Christian Friberg each shot 78 to lead the Little Lions. Ben Gelenberg had an 82, Kevin Zuercher added an 83, and Alex Stover carded an 89.

Yamato to perform anniversary show on Nov. 12 From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK —Yamato, a group of mixed-gender Taiko musicians from Japan, applies the theatrical exhibitionism of a rock ’n’ roll concert — seasoned with humor — to samurai-serious percussion playing in concerts that captivate audiences of all ages. In “Rojyoh —The Beat on the Road,” on stage at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, in Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium, Yamato celebrates two decades of performing in 52 countries around the planet. “Yamato present Taiko drumming as physical theatre, with a mix of athleticism and showbiz,” wrote a critic for The (London) Independent. “… They’re exuberant performers, leaping from drum to drum, flourishing drumsticks.” The anniversary program features nine works created during the company’s 20 years of blending tradition and innovation. The show opens with “The Birth Place of Yamato” and includes “Strong Man,” a piece performed with a technique in which the drums are flat on their sides and struck horizontally; “The Concentrated Spirit,” an attempt to find focus in the age of endless distractions; “The Fire,” which pits two female drummers against a pair of male drummers in a number crackling with tension and speed; and “Drumming Like a Camel,” a 1998 work that’s become a cornerstone of Yamato concerts.

“The sheer physical strength and movement of the drummers was as impressive as the music, in what was a visually spectacular and highly entertaining show,” wrote a reviewer for The (York, England) Press. “It is surprising to witness how the company draw out an amazing range of timbre and tempo from the drums, delivering captivating music which has both delicate beauty and heart-thumping bass power.” Masa Ogawa founded Yamato in 1993 in Nara, the ancient city credited as the birthplace of Japanese culture. Although Yamato’s drummers are serious about percussion, they always convey to audiences that they’re enjoying themselves. “We carry open, smiling faces into our performances,” Ogawa said. “Here, men and women are equals on the stage. Our smiles are meant to tickle the serious side of a human being.” Tickets for the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State presentation are available online at http://cpa.psu.edu or by phone at (814) 863-0255. Outside the local calling area, call (800) ARTS-TIX. Tickets are also available at four State College locations: Eisenhower Auditorium (weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Penn State Downtown Theatre Center (weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), HUB-Robeson Center Information Desk (weekdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Bryce Jordan Center (weekdays, 9 a.m. to

‘When I was at Penn State …’ exhibit highlights campus memories From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — “When I was at Penn State … ,” an exhibit from the Penn State University Archives, is on display through Jan. 20, in Robb Hall, Hintz Alumni Center. Whenever two or more Penn Staters gather together, the listener will hear these time-honored words, “When I was at Penn State … .” The words are always followed by a story

Ensemble to present ‘Tubaween’ on Oct. 31 UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble will present its free annual Halloween concert, “Tubaween,” at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31, in Esber Recital Hall. Full of costumes, spooky music and Halloween fun, the program features a tuba/euphonium transcription of the “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” with faculty violinist James Lyon, narrated by marching band staff member Greg Drane. The euphonium quartet fIVe will also be featured. This gifted ensemble of Penn State music students was invited to perform at the world-famous Fishcoff International Cham-

ber Music competition in May. This concert is available through live streaming video at the Penn State School of Music. The Penn State Tuba Euphonium Ensemble, formed in the fall of 1987, has achieved success performing regionally and nationally. The group performs traditional, contemporary and popular literature composed or transcribed for the tuba/euphonium ensemble. This highly select ensemble includes the finest euphonium and tuba players on campus, chosen by audition. The ensemble is coached and conducted by tuba/euphonium professor Velvet Brown.

The group has garnered praise for many featured performances, including “The Early Show”; the 1995, 2006 and 2008 International Tuba and Euphonium Conferences; several appearances at the New York Brass Conference with featured soloists Brian Bowman and Toby Hanks; the 2004 Army Tuba Euphonium Conference with soloist Roger Behrend; the Pennsylvania Music Educators’ Conference; and with soloist Neal Corwell. The ensemble also enjoys performing for many university functions, presenting public school concerts and entertaining at various offcampus venues.

UNIVERSITY PARK — After surviving the cut from 1,500 aspiring television writers down to 25 in a contest that rewards the winner with a one-year development deal with Fox, one recent Penn State graduate will find out Oct. 26 if he has won the top prize worth $25,000. Josh Sorokach, who earned his degree in broadcast journalism in 2005, is a finalist for the second consecutive year in the New York Television Festival Comedy Script Contest. The contest required a script that was 25 to 35 pages in length. (The script of a standard half-hour TV comedy usually runs 30 to 35 pages). Sorokach’s entry, titled “Black Sheep,” features a newlywed couple whose idealized picture of marriage JOSH SOROKACH gets interrupted when two relatives move in unexpectedly. “I just liked the idea of having four very distinct characters and creating an organic scenario where they’re all forced to interact on a daily basis,” Sorokach said. “In terms of a contest, especially one I entered for free, this is low-risk and high-reward.” Winning the grand prize would move Sorokach much closer to his dream of becoming a TV writer. Sorokach’s time at Penn State helped drive him toward his intended career path. Along with work in the classroom, Sorokach explored his comedy approach and writing while working with like-minded students. He helped create and host a late-night talk show on campus and he found that, although he was not a stellar host, he did enjoy writing. In addition, his interest in television writing was the result of an internship on the set of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” which was facilitated by the Office of Internships and Career Services in the College of Communications. Sorokach, who lives in New York City and blogs for Barnes and Noble and Sparknotes, credits Penn State with helping him toward his career. He said students who have a passion and utilize the university’s resources and support can move toward their dreams. A fellow Penn Stater, Adam Yenser, an award-winning comic, appreciates Sorokach’s talent. “He has a knack for generating original characters and story ideas. It takes a special talent to come up with an original concept — Josh has that talent,” Yenser said. “In 10 years, I could definitely see him as a producer or head writer on a show of his own creation.”

Probing question: What makes a great business team? By VICTORIA FRYER Special to The Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The ability of employees to work effectively in teams is often critical to a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. Given the accepted importance of collaboration, why do managers and employees often find teamwork â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and its results â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so unsatisfying? According to Stephen Humphrey, associate professor of management at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, companies too often assemble teams based merely on availability of members, and this kind of grouping is destined to fail. Humphrey said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crucial for managers to learn how to form great, high-performing business teams. In his role as research director for the Center for Teams and Negotiation, he dedicates much of his work to solving the â&#x20AC;&#x153;how-toâ&#x20AC;? question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sixty to 70 percent of a teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success lies in the design stage,â&#x20AC;? he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical to get the right people together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first step is to analyze the problem you want that team to solve,â&#x20AC;? Humphrey explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a creative outcome â&#x20AC;&#x201D; say, an innovation of some kind â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that has a very different meaning than if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to have a team maintain a process.â&#x20AC;? Humphrey uses an insect analogy to make his point, comparing various team tasks to the motions of jumping, hovering and running. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically insects can do one of those things really well, but not everything,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jumping, or getting a burst of creativity; running, or performing at an optimal level; and hovering, maintaining a process, each requires a unique team construction.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;hoveringâ&#x20AC;? team is perhaps the most straightforward. This team is constructed to perfect a routine and then keep it going. A film crew and a sales team are good examples; the main function of each member is to perform a specific role, and that role doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team is really about maximally

exploiting the capabilities of an individual within a prescribed role,â&#x20AC;? Humphrey said. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;runningâ&#x20AC;? teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to perform, but not necessarily to innovate. To construct a team capable of a high level of task performance, managers should look to their resources and pick out one or two â&#x20AC;&#x153;stars,â&#x20AC;? or high-level performers, around which to build a team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;IBM started doing this a few years ago,â&#x20AC;? explained Humphrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They keep their star players on the bench a lot and bring them out in these situations to build a team around them.â&#x20AC;? Supporting members of the team need to fit well, personality-wise, with the star player, and they should have strengths in areas where the star might be weaker. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;jumpingâ&#x20AC;? team, which has the goal of generating innovative solutions to complex problems, should be cross-functional, added Humphrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, if Ideo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an innovation and design firm based in California â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wants to put together a team on innovating hospital process flow, they might bring in a sociologist, a medical doctor, a psychologist, an engineer and an architect.â&#x20AC;? Leadership in these types of teams should be fluid, not fixed, and members should be trained to step up when their expertise is needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creativity emerges when team members are willing to hand off control to the expert,â&#x20AC;? said Humphrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Managers should work to build a culture around recognizing that everyone is on the team for a reason and has a particular expertise. The team has to be willing to confer leadership to the expert on a particular issue.â&#x20AC;? Once the team is assembled, the right kind of managerial leadership becomes crucial. Leaders, says Humphrey, should encourage two-way communication between themselves and team members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weaker leaders will say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I want you to do,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and then leave. But if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t encourage two-way communication, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get the performance level that you want.â&#x20AC;?

THE ABILITY of employees to work effectively in teams is crucial to the success of a business. Managers should also foster the teamwork skills of their employees over time, recognizing that the goal is not just to foster the current team, but to invest in future successes as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a leader, you need to talk to people after the teamwork is complete, asking what went wrong, and what went right,â&#x20AC;? Humphrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone can take that

information with them into the next teamwork situation, hopefully making it work better.â&#x20AC;? As teamwork continues to be a critical aspect of everyday work, Humphrey says that more focus on proper team design and effective managerial coaching will not only bring better results â&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring happier team players.
