Library study areas popular with students By JOHN PATISHNOCK
UNIVERSITY PARK — Looking out at the nearby community of students occupying the workspaces and group study rooms that surround his office, Joe Fennewald explained he wasn’t witnessing an aberration. “We’re fairly new into the semester and it’s been like this all day and it’s been like this all week,” Fennewald said in early September. “Last week was just as crazy as it is right now. It’s incredibly popular.” As the Head of the Tombros and McWhirter Knowledge Commons, a student-centered workspace on the first floor of West Pattee Library on the Penn State University Park campus, Fennewald enjoyed a prime view of that day’s activity. Students occupied nearly inch of workspace, which included individual computer stations and group study rooms. “There’s a lot of activity and that’s part of the excitement and that’s part of the learning process going on, is that people are talking with one another about
things they’re working on,” Fennewald said. “It just generates a buzz.” The chattering commotion was noticeable but not boisterous or unnerving. Nobody seemed to mind because students don’t want to study in a vacuum, he said. And with the group study rooms boasting glass walls, nothing goes unnoticed. “(Students) love the idea of being seen,” Fennewald said. “So this whole kind of social dynamic is going on as well.” The project launched in 2007, with Peter and Ann Tombros and John and Jeanette McWhirter providing the private money for the construction. Former associate dean Sally Kalin, who helped spearhead the development before retiring in 2011, said the library conducted intensive planning, both internally and with an architect group, and sought the support of the dean and other library administrators. Formal planning committees were created to seek out what students want and need in this new era of college life. Study areas, Page 5

PSU soccer team pays tribute to Mack Brady By CHRIS MORELLI
UNIVERSITY PARK — The Centre County soccer community continues to pour out its heart for Mack Brady. Brady died unexpectedly on Dec. 31, 2012, as a result of a swift, severe bacterial infection about two weeks shy of his ninth birthday. Since that time, there have been several tributes for the youngster, who is the son of Christian and Elizabeth Brady. On Sept. 26 at Jeffrey Field, the
Penn State women’s soccer team paid tribute to Mack. His No. 7 was everywhere — on T-shirts, hats — even on the field. Christian Brady, dean of the Schreyer Honors College at Penn State, said the support from Penn State, Centre County and the soccer community has touched his entire family. “It’s incredible. It means so much to us. It really encourages us,” Brady said. “There’s nothing that can replace Mack, but Brady, Page 6

Three convicted in 4thFest attack By StateCollege.com
BELLEFONTE — Three men were found guilty Monday of attacking a man following the 4thFest fireworks display, leaving the victim with a broken wrist, cuts and bruises. The defendants were convicted by Judge Thomas Kistler during a non-jury trial. The assault happened in a parking lot next to Beaver Stadium on July 4. According to prosecutors, Charles Stout blocked the victim’s truck and refused to move. The three assailants threatened and taunted the victim, telling him to get out and fight. Joshua Carovinci kicked the truck several times, causing more than $1,000 in damage. Prosecutors say Carovinci also spit in the victim’s face. At the same time, Christopher Stout was taunting and growling at the victim’s 12-year-old daughter who was in the back seat. The three men walked away and the victim followed in an attempt to get their names. That’s when the men attacked the victim, knocking him to the ground, kicking and punching him, police said. A Stout family member broke up the attack.

Pegula Ice Arena opens its doors By JOHN PATISHNOCK
UNIVERSITY PARK — After years and years of disappointments, false starts and failed attempts, the waiting is over. Division I hockey once again has a place in Happy Valley. “The dream’s come true,” said Joe Battista, associate athletic director for ice arena and hockey development who previously coached the Nittany Lions’ club team for nearly two decades. “Now we get to help a whole generation of skaters, hockey fans, to enjoy this magnificent gift to central Pennsylvania from the Pegulas.” The Pegula Ice Arena, which will be home to the men’s and women’s hockey teams, is nearly ready for its historic debut. Outside of a few odds and ends, such as installing televisions and ensuring all the advertisements are in place, Pegula is fully functional. Although the first home game won’t be until Oct. 11, when the men’s team hosts Army, the cafe area inside the arena is already open to the public, as is the community rink, a second skating area that allows people to recreationally skate. Terry and Kim Pegula, who donated the money and for whom the building is named, gave Battista and the architects numerous objectives within their design plan. Build a state-of-the-art facility with technical amenities. Make the arena fanfriendly and attractive to the top studentathletes in the country. The Pegulas also wanted an electric atmosphere that would create a fun, exciting, rocking vibe. Mission accomplished. “This building, we think, is going to be the premier college hockey facility in North America,” Battista said. “We have tried our best to learn from as many other college programs, and other pro and minor-pro facilities throughout the country
we visited.” In accordance with wanting to make an environment that won’t appeal to visiting teams, the student section is comprised entirely of bleachers that don’t have backs, enticing students to stand the entire time. And the roof is entirely made of metal, with Battista using the analogy that the place will sound like a kid hitting a tin can with a hammer. “It is going to be loud and it is going to be exciting,” he said. The men’s and women’s teams each have their own dry and wet locker rooms, stick room and lounges. There’s also a spacious workout facility, hydrotherapy room and video suites that coaches and players from both teams can regularly use. Everything is first-class. The hydrotherapy room, for example, boasts a sauna, hot and cold tubs and an underground treadmill, luxuries most teams don’t even have in the NHL. Battista said most other teams have some form of a hydrotherapy room, but the Buffalo Sabres, which Terry Pegula also owns, for example, have aboveground hot and cold tubs. The plan also called to make Pegula accessible to everyone in the region and state, with Battista adding, “This was not just about two varsity hockey teams, but this was really a facility that will serve all of central Pennsylvania, the state and region and be able to host state, regional and national ice hockey events.” One such event is already planned for early November. In the meantime, the Nittany Lions will play host to sellout crowds. All of the 14 suites are sold, as are all the season tickets. Only 22 single-game tickets remain for the season, and tickets for the home opener against Army are selling on the website StubHub for as much as $350, Battista noted. Battista displayed genuine excitement as he finished a Q&A session recently with the media and led a tour of the building. He noted that 13 previous proposals were

Is Penn State ready? Battista sure thinks so.
“My bold prediction is that people are going to fall in love with this building, they’re going to fall in love with hockey as a sport, they’re going to fall in love with the teams that we’ve got out there,” he said, “and this thing is just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger.”
Former Penn State administrators file new documents in court By ADAM LIDGETT StateCollege.com
BELLEFONTE — Attorneys for the three former Penn State administrators charged with perjury filed new court documents today, asking the Attorney General’s office for multiple pieces of information to help them build their case. Attorneys for former Penn State President Graham Spanier, former Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz all filed similar documents Friday in Dauphin County Court for a Bill of Particulars. All three are charged with covering up allegations of child sex abuse against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexually abusing children he met through his charity, The Second Mile. He is currently serving a sentence of 30 to 60 years. The attorneys are asking for informa-
tion that would show the administrators violated their obligation to supervise the children Sandusky was convicted of abusing. The defense is asking for the identities of the various children under 18 who the defendants were to have supervised. The defense also is asking for the law, regulation or policy identifying the defendants as people supervising the welfare of children. Also in the documents, the defense is asking for when the child abuse the defendants failed to investigate happen, and how the defendants mislead the grand jury. The defense is also asking the Attorney General’s office when exactly the three conspired to engage in any illegal conduct in relation to Sandusky. A pretrial hearing will be held at Centre County Court on Oct. 29. No trial date has been set and it’s considered unlikely a trial could begin before next spring.

Holistic wellness center opens in Bellefonte By MARJORIE S. MILLER
BELLEFONTE — Eight different businesses have joined together in Bellefonte to create a resource center that provides non-medical approaches to well-being and health. Indigo Wren’s Nest Wellness Centre, which had its soft opening Tuesday, offers multiple healing modalities, edu-
cational workshops and group experiences, according to its website. Current providers include Centre County Hypnosis, Inspired Holistic Wellness, Katura Key, Lyons Heart Massage, Manifest Healing, Moyer Chiropractic, Pathways to Inner Peace and TriYoga of Central Pennsylvania. Owner and Bellefonte resident Beth Whitman said the center, at 111 S. Spring St., started to come together in July. “I’m tremendously excited,” she said. “We’re just getting started. There’s a lot of enthusiasm.” The center has been a dream of Whitman’s for many years. She started Inspired Holistic Wellness in 2010, which moved to Bellefonte the following year. In 2012 the business went full time, she said. After a car accident in 2004, Whitman suffered significant pain and soft tissue damage. After about three years of traditional medical approaches, her only options were surgery or pain medications. She then found energy healing through such methods as massage, yoga and hypnosis,

which allowed her to go off of her pain medications, Whitman said. “I’m now able to do anything I want to do,” she said.

Some of the center’s procedures and techniques include aromatherapy, Ayurvedic massage, Chi Kung healing, deep tissue massage, meditation instruction, hypnosis, life coaching and lymphatic drainage massage, according to the website. Classes and workshops for October include sound meditation, Harvest for Health and introduction to essential oils. Services are by appointment only. A grand opening is scheduled for December.

Study areas, from page 1 “More than anything else, the Knowledge Commons was a response to the changing learning and study habits of students,” Kalin said. The Knowledge Commons was a multilayered project that also included a new auditorium and Maps Library, an atrium, a new center that offers special services and assistive technologies for students with disabilities, and a revamped leisure reading room. Kalin noted that Penn State looked at what other colleges, including the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Delaware, were already offering with similar technological spaces. Penn State students also offered insight, saying they preferred chairs with wheels so they can easily be moved, and a maximum number of plugs on worktables for charging their electronic devices. And those glass walls that the Knowledge Commons implemented? They were partly inspired from Delaware students who Kalin said “seemed to thrive on the openness of it.” “It’s fascinating to kind of see how the students are using the space,” said Fennewald, who regularly roams the space to talk with students, asking them what they like about the Knowledge Commons, what they’re working on and if they need anything else. “One of the things that we make a real effort in doing is not telling students how to use the space, but letting them tell us how they’re using the space.” Kalin said the library began noticing a significant shift in the last 10 to 15 years in regard to how students complete their work. One campus librarian told Kalin that the students on her campus no longer wrote papers, but instead produced videos to tell their stories, backing up Kalin’s point that students were no longer watching or listening to the media offered in class, but creating it themselves. Students stopped relying on using the desktop computers the library offered. Cellphones, laptops and tablets began appearing and students needed somewhere they could not only focus on their work but also have the capability for them – and their devices -- to rest, relax and recharge as well.
A cafe within the library allows students to bring in coffee and sandwiches while they work, which Fennewald noted the library encourages. It makes studying informal, he said, and less like work. “Academic libraries have become intellectual gathering places that offer a myriad of services and support,” Kalin said. “Where else can one go and record a podcast, get help with a research paper, meet with classmates about an assignment, practice a presentation, read the local newspaper and get a cup of coffee, and almost anytime they want to?” The Knowledge Commons is open 24 hours a day, five days a week and features a one-button studio, a unique workspace that allows students to practice a presentation as many times as they want without having to set up any video/audio equipment or lighting. There’s plenty of on-site support for students, with assistance that’s color-coded. Staff members wear blue (hardware problems), purple (software issues) and green T-shirts (personally owned items such as iPods, iPhones, laptops), letting students know where to go for support. Additionally, writing tutors are available in the evening. The organic combination of old-school study habits mixing with new-age technology results in an environment that’s part social clubhouse, part academic growth. The best part is the students have bought in. “There’s an excitement that is generated in the space,” Fennewald said. “I’ve had students actually come and say they don’t want to study or go elsewhere. They want to be in this space because it’s popular, but they’re also coming in and looking around the room and they’re seeing what people are doing. “If you look around, you’re going to see people, yeah, checking email, watching a video, but for the most part, most of the students in the space are seriously engaged in some type of research or working on some type of class assignment.” The group study rooms, which can be reserved up to two weeks in advance, simplify the group dynamic. Early in the semester, Fennewald saw someone connect an iPhone to the moni-

Imagine that same person having to pass around the iPhone to each individual student for inspection, Fennewald said, and it’s easy to see why these spaces have been so popular. In the short time span between Thanksgiving and the end of the fall semester last year, 560 groups were turned down for reservations because all the rooms already were booked. And between the start of last fall semester to the beginning of this fall term, the Knowledge Commons fielded 22,000 questions, meaning that, on average, one of every two students enrolled at University Park visited the Knowledge Commons in that timeframe, seeking support with any number of the services that are offered.

Kalin said the Knowledge Commons was developed with built-in flexibility, allowing for changes that can be dictated by students and their study habits. Personal preferences change, especially with some new gadget or gizmo coming out seemingly every few months. Penn State Library administrators know this. That’s why they’re ready and eager to accommodate their most prized possession: the Penn State student body. “Students vote with their feet,” Kalin said. “The libraries are busier than they’ve ever been, perhaps heading to a record year in usage. In the students’ eyes, the libraries are doing something right.” For more information on the Knowledge Commons and/or to make a reservation, visit http://www.libraries.psu.edu/ psul/kc.html

PLAYERS FROM Penn United Soccer Club joined players from Purdue and Penn State on Jeffrey Field prior to the start of last week’s Big Ten clash to pay tribute to Mack Brady, who died on Dec. 31, 2012, as a result of a bacterial infection. A scholarship fund established in his name has raised more than $140,000. Brady, from page 1

the Centre Soccer Association, Penn United and with the State College Celtics. He was well known at Jeffrey Field, attending nearly every Penn State men’s and women’s game. According to Brady, he’s seen Mack’s No. 7 everywhere — not only at Jeffrey Field. “I’ve seen it across campus. It chokes you up. Mack really wanted to play on this field and we’re able to see him out here — in a sense, through our players. Every Penn State goalkeeper will wear Mack’s patch on the back of their jerseys forever. It’s really special. It’s quite an honor,” Brady said. But Mack’s memory lives on in many more ways. Shortly after Mack’s death, the Bradys established the Mack Brady Memorial Soccer Fund at Penn State. The fund provides an endowment to Penn State goalkeepers to support recruiting, equipment, scholarships and other needs. Since its inception nine months ago, the fund has raised more than $140,000. On Sept. 26, players from Penn United ran out onto the field with the Penn State and Purdue women’s teams.
They stood on the field for the national anthem and a moment of silence to pay tribute to Mack. Aaron Decker, of Pleasant Gap, was at Jeffrey Field for Mack Brady Night. His son, Jonathan, took the field with members of the Purdue women’s team. “Watching from the stands, I saw my son out there with a girl who was on his very first soccer team. I saw his first-ever soccer coach here and countless other kids from all over Centre County from all different age groups and organizations. Whenever you come here, you never see someone you don’t know,” he said. As a parent, Decker has been touched by the outpouring of support from the soccer community. “It’s so great to know that even though the players may not have known Mack Brady’s name before the tragedy that there’s a connection. There’s an understanding. It’s a community, it’s family,” Decker explained. “I don’t think you’ll find that anywhere else. What happened was such a terrible tragedy, but to use it for such a good purpose is just amazing.” For more information or to donate to the fund, visit www.mackbrady.com.

This requires significant attention to shipping methods and costs. Shipping costs can often be greater than the profit margin. In Asia, we provide software intellectual property and services. This means a totally different set of challenges as one needs different representation. Contracts must be tightly constructed to limit the potential for unwarranted utilization of one’s intellectual property.” Erdley strongly urges companies interested in exporting to work with state organizations and get involved with a trade mission. “The value one can gain from this action is amazingly important,” he said. Dealing with cultural issues has not posed a problem for Videon Central. The company deals with many different world cultures and has employees from many different nations, Erdley noted.
Pennsylvania’s top export destinations include Canada, China, Mexico, Germany and the United Kingdom. While exporting can be an enormous boost to a Centre County company’s bottom line, there are some issues of concern that companies are urged to explore before entering into any international trade agreements. For example, local companies need to be aware of the effects that foreign currency exchange rates may have on their deals. A small reduction in a currency will cut into profit margins. Further, companies need to operate within the laws of the country they are considering exporting to. Protecting intellectual property is also a major concern. While a Centre County business may need to consult with international legal, tax and intellectual property experts, the rewards of exporting far outweigh the risks. “We have been selling SleepPhones overseas for the past five years,” said Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, CEO of AccousticSheep Inc. “We struggled through some minor shipping issues initially and now we are working through intellectual property protection.” Dealing with different cultures can be challenging. “We are respectful and nice. We ask lots of questions. We never assume we know what they mean or they know what we mean. If you knew of all the complexity and potential problems up front, it’s overwhelming and you may not do it. So just do it.” SilcoTek has been selling internationally since its inception in 2009. “Shipping logistics for large, multinational customers is a major challenge,” said company founder Paul Silvis. “Surprisingly, language has not been a problem. Our coatings are universal. To get involved with exporting, do your homework, research market potential to develop the best strategy and jump in.” AccuWeather provides forecasts for 2.7

‘Workaholism’ not seen in White House much By DALE MCFEATTERS
Scripps Howard News Service
Although there is apparently no agreed-upon definition of “workaholism,” it seems to be slowly gaining as much acceptance as such well-known and better-studied addictions as alcoholism and drug abuse. Some of us were unaware of this because of such natural defenses as high levels of sloth and indolence. Some people apparently get an adrenaline rush from constantly working and become depressed and anxious if they can’t. They sneak out of the house to get in extra work and conceal the amount of work they take with them if they are forced to take a vacation. According to the Financial Times, the term was coined in 1968 — a year when a lot of weird stuff happened, not much of it work-related — by Wayne Oates, an American psychologist, religious educator and author of 57 books, the sign of a real problem right there. One member of Workaholics Anonymous identified only as “Michele” said, “I didn’t believe I was worthwhile unless I was productive.” Michele — and I don’t think we’re giving away any secrets here — that’s the way management wants you to feel. The social sciences have an uncanny knack for identifying the obvious. One professor of work and organizational psychology at the Netherlands’ Utrecht University, according to the Times, “coined the term ‘engaged workaholic’”to describe a person who works hard at what he does because he loves doing it. In all deference to the Northern European professoriate — these problems don’t seem to occur in Italy, Portugal and, most especially, not Greece — the U.S. Congress is way ahead of them. Congress may have some difficult, even intractable, problems ahead, but when and if lawmakers get around to meeting them, they plan to be refreshed and well-rested. According to House Republican leader Eric Cantor’s schedule for this year, the House will work only 126 days, leaving nearly eight months to rest, recharge their batteries and take field trips to countries in salubrious climates to find out how they’re dealing with beach erosion. The example is set at the top, even though House Speaker John Boehner, who has a tan that bespeaks hours on the fairways, derides Barack Obama every time the president takes a few days off. But Obama, who is on track to take off some 168 days during his eight years in office, according to one projection, is not even a contender in the presidential leisure stakes. According to the website Politics363.com, “Calls to several presidential libraries reveal that President Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020 days — than any U.S. president since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other president in history.”
Do online comments help or harm? Let’s talk about trolls: The rise of digital media over the last 20 years has given birth to a new phenomenon, online reader comments. Usually found at the end of newspaper or magazine stories online — perhaps on this very column you’re reading — comments often drive journalists and their readers crazy with misinformation, ugly vitriol and out-of-left-field accusations. Last week, Popular Science magazine said it would no long allow comments, calling them a “grotesque reflection” of the media culture. Do reader comments damage democracy? Even if they do, is it possible to put them aside? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the Red-Blue America columnists, debate the issue.
Here’s how the 21st century differs from its predecessors: The audience gets to talk back. That can be enormously frustrating for writers, reporters and editors who still aspire to be gatekeepers to public discourse. Many of those professionals still long for a time when the public’s voice was largely limited to a few well-selected letters each day on a newspaper’s op-ed page. It was a less anarchic time, certainly, and the contents of those letters were much less mean than one will normally find under your average newspaper opinion column. In truth, the best comments sections — like society itself — offer both a large degree of freedom, as well as a guiding hand to sort out the racists, Joel Mathis, trolls, jerks and other riff-raff who joelmmathis@ desire less to debate issues and exgmail.com, is a change ideas and more to cause as big writer in a mess as possible. They are vandals Philadelphia. and bomb throwers (metaphorically speaking, of course). In real life, such folks are usually removed from polite company with great haste. Such a strategy has helped The New York Times cultivate ever-better online comments, while blogger Ta-Nehisi Coates has found his writing and thinking sharpened by the daily conversation with his readers. The very worst — like Philly.com, in Philadelphia where I live — appear to be untouched by any editor most days, except when editors there turn off comments on a story rather than have the vitriol go public. “Guiding hands” are also known as editors, though, and in this day of tight-tighter-tightest belt-tightening among media companies, paying a person to help create a great comments section is an expense most publishers and editors won’t shoulder. Which is why so many comments sections appear to be rude, lawless places. Popular Science is shutting off comments because, at
heart, it doesn’t want to see its reporting challenged. Even in a science setting, that’s not wise. There are ways to cultivate the best conversations with the best participants. It’s not a free-for-all or nothing. But you do have to let the audience talk back.
Popular Science made the right decision to end comments, but for the strangest of reasons. If the editors said anonymous commenters debased the quality of discourse at the site with their silly snark, many readers would have grumbled but they likely would have understood. Besides, people have no shortage of online outlets where they may snark freely. Instead, Suzanne LaBarre, PopSci’s online content editor, explained that readers were trying to change public opinion with malicious aforethought. And that sort of behavior simply could not be tolerated. “A politically motivated, decadeslong war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics,” Labarre wrote. “Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again.” It should go without saying that experts don’t know everything, and that “popular consensus” has no place in science. Alas, so much of the obvious needs repeating these days. Our discourse is a mess and most online comments are probably a waste of time. But the consensus on both of those propositions — and much else — is far from clear. Ben Boychuk, A century ago, the consensus bboychuk@cityamong reputable scientists held that journal.org, is the theory of continental drift was associate editor of “utter damned rot” and anyone who City Journal. “valued his reputation for scientific sanity” would reject the idea. Today, continental drift is taught as basic geography. Today, we’re also told that 97.1 percent of scientists agree on the causes of global climate change. Well, the latest report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is out, and the forces of “consensus” have a problem. Turns out, the global warming that so many computer models predicted hasn’t occurred in the past 15 years. Scientists disagree why, though many still insist man-made carbon emissions are likely to cause catastrophic problems. If the evidence doesn’t bear out the models, then the models are wrong. Maybe the hypothesis is wrong, too. And if the hypothesis is wrong, maybe we should think twice before letting experts reshape the way we live. Maybe the consensus is “utter damned rot” — and more people should say so.
Global-warming alarmists are at it again
After the United Nations climate panel issued a highly dubious report about the sad, ever more sizzling, calamity-nudging state of the world in 2007, an organization of 106 national science academies reviewed the review, finding it significantly amiss in “each major step” of its assessment. We need to get these critics who put science above politics back on the job again. They would seem to have Jay Ambrose is a columnist for plenty of revelaScripps-Howard tory work to do News Service. following the September release of a 36-page summary of the U.N. panel’s 2013 report that tells all of us to shudder. Yes, shudder, because as one spokesman said in describing its findings, it shows that “climate change threatens our planet, our only home.” The scary warming will keep coming at us for centuries, the summary says, but needs action soon in the form of major international restrictions that will slow down and ultimately put a halt to carbon dioxide emissions. Some warn the fuel changes undertaken to attempt that end could
be a major hit on prosperity, especially thwarting hopes in the world’s least-developed nations. In the United States, where President Barack Obama is threatening a war on coal, it could mean we’d be singing the recessionary blues for many a moon. Given what the report seeks, you’d think it would deal at length with a major fact in conflict with its tone of certainty, admonition and fright. It’s that there has been no global, atmospheric warming for 15 years. The report belittles the issue, saying 15 years isn’t so long in the time span we’re discussing, and, besides, all that additional warmth may be hiding in the depths of the ocean. Here’s the thing. The computer models that predicted something more accelerated than what has actually happened since 1998 are the same ones predicting disaster in the long run. If they were wrong about the past 15 years, it is a good sign they are wrong about the long run, too. From the start, skeptics have pointed out that the science of climate has huge problems because of all the factors that cannot conceivably be calculated in trying to figure out what might happen. There are many possible reasons that the average temperature did not go up in the past decade and a half, some of them suggesting we have a lot less to worry about than the report says. One possibility is that carbon dioxide actually has less impact on climate than supposed.
Oh, wait, say the alarmists. People indulging in that kind of talk are “deniers.” By that intended slur, they mean these seekers of more convincing evidence are really just turning their back on the obvious, scientifically demonstrated truth. Sorry, but it’s the alarmists who are most suspect. Not everyone involved in putting out the U.N. report has impressive scientific credentials. As one writer recently underlined, many of them have close ties with extremist environmental groups, meaning they could well have fallen prey to that which makes fanatics of far too many: overreaching ideology. Among the warming dogmatists, openness and willingness to have other views heard have been too often lacking. In the meantime, many reputable scientists are among those who say scare talk is unjustified and should be toned down. And there are any number of reputable scientists — including members of the national academies mentioned earlier — who ask tough questions of those who want us all to tremble as we endorse public policies that could be economically ruinous. Judith Curry, a climate scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology, is a voice of reason in all of this. For scientists to miss telling us of a coming catastrophe would be wrong, she says, adding it is equally wrong when scientists advocate dramatic political action while simplifying or hiding scientific uncertainties.

Stressed out? You should give meditation a try From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY — It used to take a moment of serious danger — the threat of attack by wild animal, say — to make your body produce stress chemicals. Now, things like deadlines, appointments and the balance of your bank account have taken the place of bears and tigers, leaving many in a constant state of stressed alert. And that can take a physical toll. Pediatric oncologist and family medicine practitioner Dr. John Neely runs a weekly holistic medicine clinic at Penn State Hershey where he sees patients who are ready to focus on bringing their bodily systems back into balance rather than simply treating specific physical ailments. “The physical parts of our body are influenced by how we are doing psychologically and spiritually, and vice versa,” he said. Because of that, Neely often recommends his patients practice some form of meditation to gain connection to something bigger than themselves. “It could be someone who plays an instrument and gets lost in the beauty of the music, someone who is religious and prays, getting lost in a good book, or practicing Kundalini yoga to help with stretching, strength and periods of quietness.” It doesn’t matter so much how you define meditation, just that you do something that causes you to lose a sense of time and place and just be in the present moment. “Your mind has totally gone away except to focus on that particular
thing,” Neely says. “If you are able to do that for a few minutes, it’s amazing what it can do for calming you down.” Neonatal Intensive Care specialist Dr. Charles Palmer has been so impressed with evidence that meditation can lower heart rate and stress that he recently became certified to teach a style called heart rhythm meditation. “This is a meditation applicable to people who are active and professional and need to stay grounded,” he says. “It’s not an upward meditation focused on transcending the body and ego.” By practicing slow, conscious breathing timed to the heartbeat, people connect not only to their physical bodies, but their emotional center as well. And that calms the unconscious nervous system — the part of your body that activates the fight-or-flight mechanism by speeding up the heart, raising blood pressure and constricting blood vessels. “You want to be able to regulate your own interior state and do it in a way that helps you become more sensitive to your emotional capacity,” Palmer says. “A lot of people are in their heads all day — thinking and arguing and working things out.” In a society that values multitasking, it takes practice to shut off the never-ending mental to-do list and ignore the smartphone so you can focus on the present. “Part of a meditative practice is learning that it’s OK to have all that, but then you bring yourself back.” To learn more about heart-rhythm meditation visit the website for the Insti-

South Hills School holds commencement ceremony From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business and Technology recently held its commencement ceremony at The Penn Stater Conference Center. The event mirrored the enthusiastic and supportive learning environment that the school’s reputation has been built upon. More than 1,000 friends and family members were in attendance to congratulate the school’s 127 graduates. Maralyn Mazza, president of South Hills, told the September Class of 2013 that they each were “one of over 6,000 graduates that are now recognized for their ability to make a difference in the workplace. The dream that Mr. Mazza and I have always held on to has come true,” she continued. “You have been given an excellent education and we know you will succeed in all you do.” Class speaker Kayla Hammel, of Martinsburg, paid tribute to the late Paul Mazza, founder of South Hills School. Mazza, who always told his students to “be kind to one another,” also lived out those words on a daily basis. “I have been most successful when I practice those words from Mr. Mazza,” Hammel said. Hammel graduated with an associate degree in specialized business from the medical assistant program and was imme-
diately hired at Nason Obstetrics & Gynecology in Roaring Springs upon successfully completing her internship with that organization. Mark Parfitt, guest speaker and 2005 South Hills business graduate, praised the benefits of the extensive internships that all South Hills graduates are required to complete prior to graduation. Parfitt encouraged the graduates to maintain and build upon the professional network they established in their internships. “Sometimes it is not only who you know, but who you are going to know that will help you in the future,” he said. “Continue to surround yourself with smart-thinking and positive people, and take advantage of your get-to-know network.” Area graduates receiving academic awards included James McIntyre, of Port Matilda, who received the Earl P. Strong Memorial Award in the business administration-management & marketing area, and Kristen Krause, of Morann, who was awarded the Kristi Joann Taylor Memorial Award in the administrative professional program. The South Hills School of Business & Technology Award was earned by Sarah Shupe, of Centre Hall, in the medical assistant program and Jessica Beichner, of Clearfield, in graphic arts. Courtney Furgison, of Lamar, received the JoAnn M. Bonfatto Memorial Award,

PENN STATE students have begun canning. Last year, students raised more $100 million for families battling pediatric cancer.
Students begin â€˜canningâ€™ for THON By SARAH PETERSON
UNIVERSITY PARK â€” After reaching the $100 million milestone of funds raised last year, Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) volunteers kicked off the 2014 fundraising season with its first â€œcanning weekendâ€? on Sept. 27. â€œCanning enables our volunteers to raise both funds and awareness for THON in a unique, yet hands-on way,â€? said executive director Ryan Patrick. More than 10,000 student volunteers will travel throughout the Northeast to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New York and West Virginia. The students will can on storefronts and street corners during daylight hours. Once again, all canning weekends will be held during off weeks/away weekends for the football team. The remaining canning weekend dates
are Oct. 18-20 and Nov. 8-10. â€œThis year, weâ€™ve mostly been looking to make safe canning a simpler process for our volunteers,â€? said rules and regulations director Janine Patton. â€œOver the summer, my captains and I worked to contact local areas that tend to experience a lot of canning to obtain some data on permit requirements, contact information and general soliciting rules.â€? All funds collected benefit the Four Diamonds Fund, the sole beneficiary of THON. The mission of the Four Diamonds Fund is to eradicate pediatric cancer by supporting innovative research for a cure. The Four Diamonds Fund also provides emotional and financial support to families undergoing pediatric cancer treatment at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. To learn more about THON and the Four Diamonds Fund, or to make a donation, visit www.thon.org.
$15 for two people. Tickets purchased the day of the event are $15 per person. Ticket price includes a stop at the Faith United Church of Christ for refreshments. All proceeds benefit the non-profit Park Forest Day Nursery Preschool, which provides tuition-free care for low-income families in Centre County. For more details, including a map and list of the houses on the tour, visit www. pfdn-preschool.org.

East Penns Valley Branch Library closes in Millheim By SAM STITZER
MILLHEIM — Sept. 28 was the last day of service for the East Penns Valley Branch Library, located in the Millheim Municipal Building (the former East Penns Valley High School) along state Route 45. The Centre County Library board of trustees, following a recommendation from a library consultant, voted on Sept. 26 to close its East Penns Valley branch. The board recommended that the branch’s books, shelves and other resources be turned over to the Friends of the East Penns Valley Branch Library, who may wish to re-open the library as an independent community library. Centre County Library officials called the closure “a regrettable but necessary action, due to cumulative system-wide losses, as well as financial support lost during the recent economic downturn.” The Centre County Library, which operates five locations, has lost about $2 million in state and federal funding since 2007. Officials have used their reserves to balance budgets for the past two years. “The library board felt like they had
done all the cutbacks they could. This (closure) was the end result of several years of budget cuts,” said East Penns Valley branch manager Charlotte Musser. East Penns Valley patrons are being directed to the Centre Hall Branch Library, 13 miles away. Library assistant Sue Downes noted that this might be especially difficult for members of the large Amish community in the East Penns Valley area. Musser said the Centre County Library’s Bookmobile will be at Burkholder’s Market in Millheim on Thursdays. She noted that the community was not informed of the possible closure until less than two weeks before it was done. “It was a hard hit for the community,” said Musser. Cardholders from the East Penns Valley branch will be transferred to the Centre Hall Branch Library, which will offer extended hours to accommodate the increased traffic, and cards will still be valid at any branch library in the county, as well as at the Bookmobile. The Books by Mail program will continue for those in the county unable to physically visit a library. E-books and online services will still be available at www.centrecountylibrary.org.

Milesburg’s festival features popular vehicle show By SAM STITZER
MILESBURG — The 13th annual Apple Harvest Festival and Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show, sponsored by the Milesburg Museum and Historical Society, was held on Sept. 28 on Market Street in Milesburg. The event featured an outdoor breakfast, homemade baked goods, homemade soups, apple dumplings, a flea market, craft vendors and live musical entertainment, as well as a car, truck and motorcycle show. In the front yard of the Milesburg Museum, hungry patrons were buying dump-
lings and other sweet treats while Phase II, a classic country band, performed. Other food vendors were busy serving sandwiches and soup to the crowd. Market Street was filled with all types of vehicles for the car show. As more show vehicles arrived, the organizers had to put them in yards and side streets. Well over 100 were on display. A rare 1931 Desoto sedan was shown by Ed Hinkle of Pleasant Gap. Hinkle, who grew up in Clearfield, saw the car at a dealership near the junior high school he attended back in 1971. “I would see the car and I fell in love with it when I was in eighth grade,” he said.
Dave and Barb Bagley displayed a black 1963 Jaguar XKE roadster, which features a 3.8-liter, dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine with triple carburetors, and a tan leather interior. Barb Bagley’s father bought the car from Skip Stewart’s salvage yard in State College in the 1970s. It had been wrecked and the plan was to repair it and make it roadworthy again. The Bagleys acquired the car a few years ago, made the repairs, and now they show and drive it regularly. The XKE is considered to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and its design was thought to be well ahead of its time in the 1960s.
His cousin bought the car and decided to sell it a few years later. Hinkle jumped at the chance to own it. He has now had it for 38 years, and has done very little to it. It features a 205-cubic-inch, six-cylinder flathead engine and a three-speed transmission. It sold new in 1931 for $775. A modern day mini-muscle car was shown by Brandon Taylor of Dubois. Taylor’s bright red 2004 Dodge Neon SRT sedan features a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which Taylor says generates 340 horsepower and provides amazing performance. Taylor has made many modifications to the Neon over the last several years.
St. Paul’s to hold hunger weekend
STATE HIGH CROWNS KING AND QUEEN
By CONNIE COUSINS
STATE COLLEGE — Larry Hollar, senior regional organizer with Bread for the World, will share with St. Paul’s United Methodist Church and the community how we can make a difference to end hunger. Hollar graduated from Wesley Theological Seminary and has served in the U. S. House of Representatives and worked for the U. S. Department of Transportation. His role with Bread for the World now brings him to State College. Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger here and abroad.

Then, from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Oct. 19, the church will show the movie “58: The Film,” a documentary about ending extreme poverty. The film will be shown at The State Theatre in State College. A panel discussion will follow the film. Donations requested are $3 and a can of food. From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. that evening, St. Paul’s will hold a hunger banquet in Room 301 of its education center. Those attending will experience the reality of hunger. Hollar will preach at all three services — 8 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. — on Sunday, Oct. 20, in St. Paul’s sanctuary, 250 E. College Ave. in State College.

Rediscovering Happy Valley: Home football games UNIVERSITY PARK — The following sequence transpired in the first half of Penn State’s 34-0 victory over Kent State last month in Beaver Stadium. Kent State commits a penalty to set up a third-and-14 for the Golden Flash. Fan sitting in front of me: “That will back them up.” Me: “No, they’ll decline it and set up third down.” I turn to my mom, beside me: “They probably would have accepted it had it been on first down, but they’re already in third and long.” Penn State declines John Patishnock the penalty, and Kent is a Centre County State picks up close native and his stories on how to 20 yards and a first he’s reconnecting down on the next play. to the area will Fan: “See, that be showcased in penalty would have “Rediscovering helped.” Happy Valley,” a Me: “Well, if you’re column that will going to give up 20 run every other yards on third-and-14, week in the Centre it doesn’t really matCounty Gazette. ter.” Something similar to this has happened countless times as I’ve attended Penn State games for roughly the last 20 years. There wasn’t any hostility between the fan sitting in front of me and myself, and realistically, we weren’t really talking to each other, just to ourselves loud enough so that the other could hear. My family’s season tickets are 12 rows up in the ND section, right behind the north end zone. There’s always been some level of banter between myself and the fans in our section, though the gentleman sitting in front of me — a man who I’d guess is in his 60s, with a white beard, slim build and an upbeat disposition — is new to the scene. Well, at least he’s new to me. Not counting last year’s home game against Indiana, which took place on my 31st birthday and for which I flew home to see, this season’s first three games are the first contests I’ve seen at Beaver Stadium in five years. Some of the other fans I’d come accustomed to seeing over the years were no longer there: The older couple, who sat immediately to my right, no longer attends games. They were mostly quiet and always polite, and only occasionally would the gentleman — who always wore headphones so he could listen to the Steve Jones-Jack Ham broadcast — offer a nonvulgar display of unhappiness with the Lions’ play. Usually, it was something similar to, “Geez, guys, play some defense!” I think they were from Mechanicsburg. The couple to our left still comes to games; recently they moved to the area and have their grandkids come down to join them in the second half. Then there’s the guy who sits about two seats over and directly behind us. The most polished screenwriter couldn’t write a more apt description for an older, disgruntled, ornery fan than he embodies. But he’s also funny and loyal and over the
THE SCENE AROUND Beaver Stadium prior to a Penn State home football game is unlike any other in college football. years, he grew on me. He’s not always curmudgeonly. In fact, I remember him being more pleasant this season than any other. Quick story: When I attended the win over the Hoosiers last year, Michael Zordich ripped off an 11-yard run in the fourth quarter with Penn State leading in its 45-22 victory. Instead of cheering, he screamed something to the effect that Zordich should have picked up even more yardage. Yeah, he’s that guy. Or has the potential to be. He sometimes wears an Air Force hat, though I’m all but certain he’s a Penn State graduate since I’ve also seen him wear a jacket with the words “Blue Band Alumni” emblazoned on the front. My guess is he’s been coming to games for the last 50 years, and he and I have shared some minor arguments during games; nothing serious, just some disagreements over how he and I are viewing the game. Again, that’s part of the charm of attending games at Beaver Stadium: You’re absorbing elements that are impossible to sense when you’re sitting on your coach and not on the metal bleachers that envelop a beautiful patch of grass that’s home to one of the nation’s most cherished college football teams. That’s why I feel that my family doesn’t just have tickets. They’re my tickets. They’re my seats. Given the chance to sit anywhere else in the stadium, I’d decline any offer to stay put in Section ND, Row 12, Seat 17 (the other person with whom I attend games usually occupies Seat 15). You could blindfold me and I’d still be able to find my seat from anywhere in the sta-
dium. It stopped becoming a stadium and started feeling like an old friend before I got out of high school. As I was living in Indiana for the last four years, I was sometimes asked if I watched a game, perhaps the Blue-White scrimmage or some other contest. The answer was always, “yes,” but I put the response in the context that after attending games as I grew up, watching Penn State play on television was almost like seeing some other team compete. I’ve covered just about every inch of the stadium. I’ve walked through the suites, lavishly designed, and seen the view from the press box/working offices on the opposite side. I’ve watched games from the field and saw the sunrise from atop Beaver
TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette
Stadium as I worked on a documentary film; the latter is a scene I’ll never forget. Yes, I love to see Penn State win and am presumably grumpy when that doesn’t happen, but a win or loss doesn’t impact my excitement level to attend the next game, not just this season but for years and decades to come. When I walk into Beaver Stadium, I feel like a young child does when he or she arrives at their grandparents’ house. I feel like I can do no wrong, and for as long as I stay, I’ll be welcomed and allowed to do as I please. It’s a relationship that’s sometimes hard to describe but once you feel that pull, that irresistible force compelling you to return again and again, it’s hard to deny.

The Wassons host Farmer’s Wife Fall Fest By SAM STITZER
SPRING MILLS — Faye and Dan Wasson own a picturesque 60-acre farm on Airport Road in Potter Township. During each of the past 11 autumns, the Wassons have opened their farm to the public for the Farmer’s Wife Fall Fest. This year’s event continues Friday, Oct. 4, through Sunday, Oct. 6. For the event, the Wassons fill their red barn with home grown pumpkins, gourds, corn and other fruits of the harvest for sale. They have a children’s craft area where kids
CENTRE HALL LIONS CLUB
can decorate pumpkins. In addition to the Wasson family’s items, several local craft vendors are housed in the barn selling a variety of hand crafted items. Members of the Tusseyville Emmanuel Union Church are on hand, selling sandwiches and homemade soup. Baked goods also are available. Just outside the barn stands the “Pumpkin Shack,” a tiny log cabin filled and decorated with pumpkins, gourds and squash. At the festival, Dan Wasson hauls visitors in a hay wagon to a pumpkin patch on the property. Wasson’s collection of antique tractors is on display,
including a John Deere originally purchased by his greatgrandfather in 1939. Also on display is an antique cider press driven via flat belt by an antique John Deere tractor. Alongside the barn is a petting zoo with a calf and some goats. There’s also a sandbox filled with shelled corn, and equipped with toy bulldozers, backhoes and a dump truck for children to play with. “Our grandkids are the fifth generation on this farm,” said Faye Wasson. She said they hold the festival to expose local families to agriculture. “The best thing is to see kids and families come out here and have fun,” she said.

Millheim hosts first Oktoberfest By SAM STITZER
MILLHEIM — The Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks sponsored the first-ever Millheim Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 28. The event, held on the Millheim Fire Company grounds, was a fundraiser for the Millheim Fire Company. Oktoberfest gave visitors the chance to try new food and beer and to enjoy live entertainment and games, while raising money for the volunteer firefighters. “They do a lot for this community, and it’s time we do more for them,” said Tim Bowser, co-owner and general manager of the Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks. The Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks supplied four varieties of beers which they brew at their facility. German food prepared by the Penn College culinary class was on the menu for the day. Live music was provided for the fest by the Bavarian Stompers and Magillicudie’s Polka Explosion. Attendees were dancing to the music, and some were wearing German costumes for the event. Bowser estimated that by noon, about 300 people had attended the event, and more arrived before closing time. Bowser said that he and his staff at Elk Creek organized the food, drink and entertainment for the event. The fire company erected the tents and other details on the grounds, since they have years of experience from putting on an annual carnival. Bowser said he hopes that the Oktoberfest becomes an annual tradition in Millheim.

Residents, families, staff, volunteers, Centre County Commissioners and the Centre Care Inc. board of directors showed their gratitude for the auxiliary through fellowship, presen-
tation and music,. An engraved commemorative brick was presented to the auxiliary by the residents of Centre Crest Nursing Home in honor of 50 years of service. The brick will be installed in the walkway in front of the nursing home and will become a permanent legacy. The resident choir also performed original songs for the auxiliary expressing their gratitude and love.
The Centre Crest Auxiliary started the summer of 1963 when several church women volunteered to serve at a reception desk on Sunday afternoons. The women began looking for more tasks, which led to meetings of 25 civic and church organization representatives and the birth of the Centre Crest Auxiliary. Giant Foods in State College provided food for the celebration.
Zombie Walk scheduled for Oct. 10
STATE COLLEGE — Schlow Library will host its third annual Zombie Walk from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10. All participants are asked to donate at least one non-perishable food item for the State College Food Bank. You can show up ready or get
some help from zombie makeover experts at the library at 4:30 p.m. The Zombie Walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. to deliver the collected food items to the State College Food Bank at Hamilton Square Shopping Center. After returning to the library, the
Zombie costume contest and pageant will take place in Schlow’s community room. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Karen at klambert@schlowlibrary. org.
PAWS ADOPT-A-PET Teddy Bear, a black and white tuxedo male, is on a mission to find his forever family before October comes to an end. Teddy Bear is a feline teenager, but he still has plenty of kitten left in him. He loves to play, be petted and give tiny kisses with his tongue. Sometimes those tiny kisses turn into love bites and he plays a little rough, so Teddy Bear would do best in a home with older children. While he also would not mind cat sib-
lings, Teddy Bear has not been around dogs. If you would like to learn more about this cute guy who occasionally carries his tail straight across his back toward his head, please visit www.centrecountypaws.org/cats, or you can meet him in person at PAWS, 1401 Trout Road in State College. Teddy Bear’s adoption fee has already been graciously paid for by his Guardian Angel.

Penn State Nittany Lions open conference play on the road, traveling to Indiana By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH
UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State will open its 21st football season in the Big Ten with an interesting matchup on Saturday afternoon in Bloomington against the 2-2 Indiana Hoosiers. Yes, it has been 21 years since Penn State beat Minnesota, 38-20, in the Nittany Lions’ first conference opener in 1993. That year, and every year since, the Big Ten opener has been a major event on the Penn State schedule, and this year will be no different. Back then, when the Golden Gophers came into Beaver Stadium for the first time, the conference still had the lingering image of being Michigan, Ohio State and the Other Eight — a conference full of slow, lumbering, five-yards-and-a-cloudof-dust teams that played mostly in snow and ice. That’s all changed now, of course, and the Hoosiers are a perfect example of how the conference has evolved. Indiana plays fast. And the Hoosiers have the system, quarterback, and skill people to make that kind of offense work. The Hoosiers average 77 plays and 44.5 points per game, and they roll up 547 yards of total offense every time out. Quarterback Nate Sudfeld leads a quick-strike passing offense that has totaled 1,394 yards and 14 touchdowns in four games and has completed passes to 11 different receivers. Because of the threestep drops and quick releases, Sudfeld has completed 61 percent of his passes and has only been sacked four times this season for 24 yards in losses.
Tevin Coleman leads a running game that averages 198 yards per game, and with receivers Cody Latimer, Shane Wynn, Kofi Hughes, and Ted Bolser, Indiana fields a balanced and dangerous offense. And Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien is well aware of the problems the Hoosiers present. “They (the Hoosiers) do a fantastic job,” O’Brien said. “(head coach) Kevin Wilson has done a really good job since he was at Oklahoma and now at Indiana. They try to run 90 to 100 plays a game, so you have to get lined up, communicate properly, and handle the tempo. And then they have some really good skilled players. They have two good running backs, obviously a good quarterback that’s playing well, and good receivers and tight ends. “They get you into situations where you are going to have to make plays in space. And so handling the tempo and being able to tackle in space and not give up a ton of explosive plays are a big part of the game plan.” On the other side of the ball, however, Indiana has had trouble stopping the run, especially in its two losses to Missouri and Navy. Teams are gaining over 247 yards per game on the ground against the Hoosiers and over 460 yards of total offense. Indiana is scoring 44 points, but it is

TRIP also giving up 33 every game. Like Penn State, Indiana is coming off of a bye, and, according to Wilson, the Hoosier defense was a major area addressed during the week off. “We’ve looked very hard just conceptually to make sure that what we’re doing, our kids understand our calls, our alignments and where to go and how to play the structure of the defense right,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve played structurally sound and as clean as we need to. And I think, again, you go through and you got some young guys and you want to do some things to, quote, take advantage or sometimes maybe even disguise what you can’t do. If you’re not careful, you overscheme. “And so to me we’ve had significant amount of miscommunication, misalignment, and we’re not as sound as we need to be, versus we’re getting totally blocked all the time. “Our thing defensively, and we’ve put a fair amount of time and some energy into it this week, is to make sure we’re getting lined up a lot cleaner and giving our guys a chance to know what they’re doing and being a little bit more aggressive in what we’re doing.” Wilson is also wary of Penn State.“You look at the personnel,” he said. “Their freshman quarterback (Christian Hackenberg) is really solid, playing in a scheme where they understand how to take advantage of his strengths and not stress him out as a freshRoad Trip, Page 22 TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette
THROUGH THE FIRST four games of the season, second-year head coach Bill O’Brien has the Nittany Lions pointed in the right direction.
Grading the Lions: The non-conference report card By BEN JONES
UNIVERSITY PARK — With four games in the books for Penn State, fans can start to get an idea of what sort of team the Nittany Lions have heading into conference play. The level of competition will now greatly increase over the coming weeks but there is still plenty to take away from the first four weeks of the season. Here are the grades for each unit heading into Big Ten play:
Christian Hackenberg has been stellar under center for at least three of the four games he has started so far. A 62 percent completion rate, 1,027 yards of passing and
five touchdowns has earned him Big Ten Freshman of The Week honors twice this season. It will be interesting to see how the 18-year-old handles the challenge of playing against Big Ten defenses. He certainly seems more than capable of learning to manage that test. If Hackenberg can continue to take what the defense gives him and improve his decision making Penn State has a chance to be competitive in every game. The Nittany Lions are 15-for15 in the redzone with 12 of those successful trips coming by way of touchdowns. So if Hackenberg can get the offense down the field points are a guarantee so far. Aside from Hackenberg, Penn State has shown at least three running backs capable of handling the load. Zach Zwinak leads that group with 67 carries for 297
yards and eight touchdowns (A tie for the national lead) but Bill Belton and Akeel Lynch are not far behind. Allen Robinson is his usual self with 26 catches for 448 yards and three touchdowns. His weekly contributions have helped Penn State into the Top 50 for both rushing and passing averages nationally per game (Ranked 50/40 respectively). The Nittany Lions current problem is getting both of those things clicking together. Passing and running. Penn State has become a hit-or-miss team when it comes to generating long drives. Once the offense gets going it can be hard to stop, but mistakes and setbacks have doomed some drives before they ever started. That will happen to some of the best teams, but at the end of the day converting
11-of-52 third downs is far too low to hand out a grade any higher. There isn’t any doubt the pieces are there for a talented offense, but some of the little mistakes made in the non-conference schedule can spell defeat in Big Ten play.
John Butler may have been here last season, but having total control over the defense still opens the door for some growing pains. Penn State’s defensive struggles aren’t all Butler’s fault though. The defense is shallow in many positions in terms of experience and depth of personnel. The Nittany Lions are 13th in overall scoring defense averaging 14.5 points a game, but Report card, Page 22

Road Trip, from page 19 man with protections and run game balance and screen and in their play calls and whatnot. But Hackenberg is a very talented young player playing in a great scheme, well coached. “So they piece it together, and they got a bunch of nice pieces. They got a young freshman quarterback that’s very, very talented, but with a big back (Zach Zwinak) and the running game, nicer perimeter players, nice tight ends, solid line, pretty good package offensively, doing really, really well.” On paper at least, this game seems to boil down to the play of the defenses. If Penn State can control the tempo of Indiana and get some three-and-outs — advantage Penn State. If not, and Indiana is able to move the ball and control the tempo, as did Central Florida, then coach O’Brien will likely find out how his team and its young quarterback will deal with the pressures of a close game on a big stage in a hostile environment. Like Penn State, Indiana is coming off of a bye, and, according to Wilson, the Hoosier defense was a major area addressed during the week off. “We’ve looked very hard just conceptually to make sure that what we’re doing, our kids understand our calls, our alignments and where to go and how to play the structure of the defense right,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve played structurally Report card, from page 19 some larger issues became more apparent in the 34-31 loss to UCF. There are, however, a few bright spots on the defensive side of the ball. Glenn Carson has really stepped up his play at linebacker for a team high 29 tackles, 20 of which are assisted. Interestingly enough no other defensive player for Penn State has hit double figures for assisted tackles. DaQuan Jones has also proven to be a force at defensive tackle with 5.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks. Stephen ObengAgyapong has also provided the defense
sound and as clean as we need to. And I think, again, you go through and you got some young guys and you want to do some things to, quote, take advantage or sometimes maybe even disguise what you can’t do. If you’re not careful, you overscheme. “And so to me we’ve had significant amount of miscommunication, misalignment, and we’re not as sound as we need to be, versus we’re getting totally blocked all the time. “Our thing defensively, and we’ve put a fair amount of time and some energy into it this week, is to make sure we’re getting lined up a lot cleaner and giving our guys a chance to know what they’re doing and being a little bit more aggressive in what we’re doing.” Wilson is also wary of Penn State.“You look at the personnel,” he said. “Their freshman quarterback (Christian Hacken berg) is really solid, playing in a scheme where they understand how to take advantage of his strengths and not stress him out as a freshman with protections and run game balance and screen and in their play calls and whatnot. But Hackenberg is a very talented young player playing in a great scheme, well coached. “So they piece it together, and they got a bunch of nice pieces. They got a young freshman quarterback that’s very, very talented, but with a big back (Zach Zwinak) and the running game, nicer perimeter players, nice tight ends, solid line, pretty good package offensively, doing really, really well.” with a nice safety/linebacker wrinkle. If Penn State is going to win games in conference play though it’ll be because young corners Trevor Williams and Jordan Lucas have greatly improved. Both have shown moments of skill and youth. As they face some of the better quarterbacks their collective game will need to step up as well. Probably the best way for Penn State’s defense to improve is through experience and time. Both will come as Penn State dives head first into Big Ten play. The makings of a good defense are there, but like the offense, consistency is key.

PENN STATE running back Bill Belton bursts into the end zone during a game earlier this season. Belton has been a key cog on offense for the Lions. On paper at least, this game seems to boil down to the play of the defenses. If Penn State can control the tempo of Indiana and get some three-and-outs—advantage Penn State. If not, and Indiana is able to move the
ball and control the tempo, as did Central Florida, then coach O’Brien will likely find out how his team and its young quarterback will deal with the pressures of a close game on a big stage in a hostile environment.
SPECIAL TEAMS: A
Where special teams was a liability last season it’s an asset today. Sam Ficken has been automatic, missing only one field goal of the 50+ yard variety. Alex Butterworth hasn’t been fantastic at punter but has limited outright shanks that happened from time to time last season. Penn State is averaging 11 yards per punt return and 22 yard per kick return. Ficken aside, how good Penn State’s special teams have become won’t really known until the punt defense and kick coverage are tested by talented return men in the Big Ten.
At the end of the day Penn State is an average team with the potential to be a lot more than that. Right now the Nittany Lions just have too few things as an automatic “go-to” when the defense needs a stop or the offense has to move the ball. That’s not to say that Penn State is a bad team, but rather a team that could go either way as the season moves forward. If Hackenberg continues to grow and the offense becomes more consistent there isn’t any reason they can’t win 8-9 games. If the defense struggles to pressure the quarterback and defend the pass, it might be too much to ask of Hackenberg and Company to outscore teams in order to win.

BALD EAGLE AREA’S Mitchel Struble is dragged to the ground by the Central’s Jordan Quarello during Friday night’s game at Wingate. The Eagles lost, 33-14.
TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette
Bald Eagle Area drops its second consecutive game, 33-14 By JUSTIN PACKER
WINGATE — On paper, Central and Bald Eagle Area are two similar teams. Offensively, both teams can put a ton of points of the board, while defensively, the teams have big-play potential on any snap. When the two met last Friday at Alumni Stadium in Wingate, the result did not disappoint — unless you were a BEA fan. Central weathered an early storm by the Eagles to hand BEA their second straight loss, 33-14. “I am happy with the effort tonight,” BEA head coach Jack Tobias said. “I thought our kids played through the roof in the beginning. We have to learn to carry the focus for four quarters. We are playing against teams that have been here before and we need to get there. We have to do a better job keeping our focus.” The Dragons used a 1-2 punch of Bradie Moore and Austin Cunningham to run their way past the Eagle defense. The pair combined for nearly 300 yards on the ground. Cunningham dazzled the crowd, as he
scored four touchdowns (2 rushing, 1 passing and a punt return) and kept composure – even with his team down early in the game. “He is a great player,” Tobias said. “We knew that coming into tonight’s game. We watched him on tape and knew he was a playmaker. He broke a couple big ones on us tonight.” BEA attacked the Dragons off the opening kick, as Bryan Greene took it 87 yards for a touchdown and put the Eagles on top 7-0. “He is such a dangerous return guy for us,” Tobias said. “The kids blocked well and he shot out of the pile and I knew we were in good shape.” Central answered right back on the next drive as quarterback Austin Cunningham found Mike Mock on a 34-yard touchdown pass. The Dragons missed the extra point and BEA held a 7-6 lead with 9:10 left in the first quarter. Jason Jones took the Eagles to the end zone for the second time of the night when he hooked up with Bryce Greene on a 29yard pass, giving the Eagles a 14-7 lead with 1:46 remaining in the first quarter.
“He (Bryce Greene) is a playmaker on the outside,” Tobias said. “We wanted to stretch the field and he makes it easy for us to do that. We just didn’t have enough around it tonight.” Defense became the theme there on out, as the Eagles shut down Central in the second quarter, while the third and fourth quarter was owned by the Dragon defense. Tyler Schall highlighted the defensive play for the Eagles in the second quarter, as he scooped up a fumble early in the frame; and pulled in a late, drive-killing interception in the back of the Central end zone. “It was huge for us,” Tobias said. “In the first half, we were feeding off of the big plays and Tyler was the biggest of players for us. Central was driving and Tyler made the plays for us. We were flying to the ball tonight. Some guys just make big plays in situations.” Heading into the half, the Eagles were up 14-7 and then the Dragons took over. Central scored on their next two possessions — the first was an 8-play, 65 yards drive and the second was a 13-play drive. Twenty-one plays — all running plays.
With Central up 20-14 at that point, Cunningham finished off the scoring with the next two touchdowns, one on the ground and the other a 44-yard punt return. While Central was firing on all cylinders, the Eagles offense stalled in the second half. In the five Eagle possessions in the half, BEA did not garner a first down. “I think the compounding errors killed us,” Tobias said. “We would pick up good yardage on first down, only to have it called back on a holding penalty. Add that to the fact that our offensive line was a little depleted and it was just a tough night for us.” Bald Eagle Area (3-2) will look to end their two-game losing streak Friday, when they travel to play the Golden Eagles of Tyrone. “They are already focused on Tyrone,” Tobias said. “I have no doubts about that. The seniors spoke to the team after the game and they know that Week 5 is now upon us. These seniors are stepping up and taking a leadership role. I think the guys need to stay positive. We played hard against a great team and just fell short.”
Loss keeps Red Raiders winless By CHRIS MORELLI
BELLEFONTE — It was another tough night for the Bellefonte Red Raiders. Tyrone kept the Red Raiders winless with a 53-6 win at Rogers Stadium on Friday night. The Eagles put up seven scores in the game, which featured a running clock for most of the second half. Despite the lopsided score, Tyrone coach Steve Guthoff was not entirely pleased with the way his squad performed. “They challenged us tonight,” Guthoff said of undermanned Bellefonte. “Although the game was in hand, I think a lot of our guys realize that we have a lot of work to do to get where we want to be. We were sluggish and sloppy at times … it didn’t look the way we all wanted it to look tonight.” Tyrone, which upped its mark to 4-1, got a big night from running back James Oliver who carried the ball 12 times for 166 yards. He was in on four of the Golden Eagles’ seven scores.
Bellefonte slipped to 0-5 with the loss. Despite the loss, first-year head coach Shannon Manning believes his squad is showing improvement week to week. “There’s a lot of things that are steps in the right direction,” Manning explained. “We kept it interesting in the first half. If we convert and don’t give a cheap (touchdown) up at the end of the half, it’s 20-6. That’s something. I didn’t see the kids giving up. That’s something to build off of. I’m seeing progression every week. We’re getting better.” The Red Raiders hung in against the Golden Eagles, especially in the first half. However, Oliver was just too much. He scored on runs of 71, 7 and 3 yards. He also hooked up with Tyrone quarterback Erik Wagner for a 56-yard touchdown reception. Manning admitted that Tyrone’s speed presented a challenge. “It’s tough. We were having a hard time matching up with one or two players,” Manning said. “Across the board, I thought we were hanging in
there. (No.) 24 is an outstanding football player. That’s what he is. We had trouble matching up with him,” Manning said. Oliver accounted for 222 yards of Tyrone’s offense. “We can’t afford to depend on Oliver in every game,” Guthoff said. “We need to take care of the game and tonight we were lucky that Oliver stepped up in a big way.” The Golden Eagles built a 27-0 halftime lead and put up 26 more in the second half. Bellefonte’s lone TD came on a 48yard run by Jon Kerschner in the fourth quarter. It won’t get any easier for the Red Raiders this week when Clearfield and Boston College-recruit Christian Lezzer come to town. “To be honest we’re not concerned with what they do,” Manning said. “We’re concerned about what we do and what we do to become a better football program. We’ll talk about what they do, but we really are just trying to get the basics down. These guys are starting to understand football.”

Central Dauphin decks State College, 34-0 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH
of defensive lineman Elijah Robinson who took it untouched into the end zone for a pick-6 and a 10-0 Ram lead. “The quarterback got hit,” Wolski said, “and the ball went and landed in their hands. Sometimes the ball goes where it has to for you to have success and that’s what happened for them.” Three minutes later, after a stalled drive and a Little Lion punt, CD went into its bag of tricks for another quick score. The Rams lined up on their own 34 and Dickey threw what looked like a screen pass left to Jake Notenstine, but instead of running, Notenstine backed up and threw a perfect pass to a wide-open Manny Gonzalez who took it in untouched and opened a 17-0 CD lead. State College, now playing with a sense of urgency, could not mount a threat in its two final possessions of the half, and CD’s Jacob Kerschner added a 42-yard field goal for the Rams just before halftime that gave CD a 20-0 lead going into the break. With a 20-point lead and the first possession in the second half, Central Dauphin switched to a ball-control, field-position offense that ate valuable time and kept the SC offense on the sideline. After starting the second half with a time-eating, 10-play drive, the Rams pinned SC on its two-yard line after a perfect punt. State College, though, behind an 18yard run by Jordan Misher and a 19-yard Irwin to Anthony Misher pass, moved the ball 47 yards in nine plays before another error — this time a fumble — again gave CD the ball in good field position. And it didn’t take the Rams long to take advantage. They drove it 44 yards in six plays with Holmes taking it in from the one to take an overwhelming 27-0 lead. Subsequently, SC was forced to go for a fourth-and-long on its next drive, but Irwin’s pass fell incomplete, and shortly after, the Rams added their final TD to set the score a 34-0.
STATE COLLEGE — The Central Dauphin Rams came into State College on Friday night with a misleading 2-2 record and an extra gear that the Little Lions had not yet seen so far this season. Led by four backs who combined for more than 200 yards on the ground and two touchdowns, the Rams built a 20point halftime lead and then added two long touchdown drives in the second half that completed a 34-0 Mid-Penn Conference victory over the Little Lions at Memorial Field. Quarterback Nate Dickey, Raleigh Sirb, Malachi Holmes, and Chimdi Okpara did the heavy lifting on the ground for the Rams, with Sirb leading the way with 71 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown, and Dickey led a passing game that did just enough to keep SC off balance. “They (Central Dauphin) played at another speed,” State College coach Al Wolski said. “Everybody’s got their maximum speed, and they were playing at their maximum and we were playing at something less than our maximum. “We had a chance to make some plays, interceptions and things like that that could have gotten us some momentum, but we didn’t get it. You’ve got to make plays when you have the opportunity.” The plays that Wolski spoke about were two dropped interceptions that would have stopped CD drives and a big secondquarter pick-6 that completely changed the complexion of the game. With Central Dauphin holding a 3-0 lead early in the second quarter, State College quarterback Patrick Irwin dropped back to pass from his own 41. Just as he was about to throw, Irwin was hit simultaneously by at least two defenders. The ball floated forward and right into the hands

THE STATE COLLEGE Area High School Little Lions are off to a 2-3 start in 2013. “We got it out of there,” Wolski said, “and then we had our drives stall after we did get it out. And then in the third quarter we didn’t know how many chances we were going to have to touch the ball. How many possessions do you get in a quarter? Three is a lot to get in a quarter, so we felt that we had to go for it.” State College did run up almost 300

Now, State College will travel on Friday night to Chambersburg Area for another Mid-Penn Conference game before returning home to face Central Dauphin East and Carlisle.
Week 5 roundup: Penns Valley, P-O fall CHESTNUT RIDGE 24, P-O 7
The Mounties (1-4) held a 7-3 halftime advantage, but surrendered 21 fourthquarter points in a loss to Chestnut Ridge on Friday night. Curtis Matsko gave P-O a 7-0 lead with 2:36 left in the fourth quarter, but the Mounties gave up a late field goal and held a scant 7-3 lead at the intermission. In the fourth quarter, Chestnut Ridge’s Matt Wiley broke off runs of 38, 59 and 13 yards to blow the game open. The Lions improved to 3-2 with the victory.

The Rams struggled containing Huntingdon’s Devon Claar. He carried 10 times for 151 yards. He rushed for three scores and caught another. Collison scored late in the third quarter to slice into a 34-21 deficit, but the Rams wouldn’t find the end zone again. Penns Valley slipped to 1-4 with the loss.

Midpoint, from page 25 running back James Oliver, who is averaging 128 yards per game and has scored 13 touchdowns. Quarterback Erik Wagner is completing almost 60 percent of his passes (37 for 63) and has thrown for 650 yards and seven touchdowns. Nick Getz, Oliver and Silas Crawford have been Wagnerâ€™s favorite receivers. Tyrone can score in bunches â€” the Golden Eagles ran up 50 points in the first half against P-O â€” and it averages more than 30 points per game. The Eagles are no slouches on defense, either, and they have held three of their five opponents to less than seven points. BEA will be looking to recapture the formula it used in the first three games when it averaged more than 40 points per game. That number has fallen off sharply as the Eagles have scored a total of just 24 points against Chestnut Ridge and Central. Quarterback Jason Jones, running backs Dakota Bartley and Mike Struble, and receivers Bryan and Bryce Greene continue to lead the BEA offense, but it will be necessary to slow down Oliver, Wagner, and the Tyrone offense if BEA is to get back on track. Outlook â€” BEA has the size and talent to be successful in this game, but the Eagles canâ€™t get into a high-scoring affair against Tyrone. Defense will be the key. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
PHILIPSBURG-OSCEOLA (1-4) AT PENNS VALLEY (1-4)
Penns Valley won its first game of the season against Juniata, but since then has lost four straight to Clearfield, BEA, Central and Huntingdon. The Rams can put points on the board and average over 25 points per game, but their defense has let them down at times, especially in the 69-41 loss to Central and the 47-19 loss to BEA. Cam Tobias has thrown for almost 200 yards per game this season, and he has completed passes to 10 different receivers. Taylor Collison leads the Ram rushing attack, with Corey Hazel and Wyatt Sharp also getting significant carries.
P-O comes into this game after losses to Tyrone and Chestnut Ridge in its last two outings. The Mounties pushed Chestnut Ridge last Friday, but they couldnâ€™t keep up with CR in the second half. With starting quarterback Curtis Matsko still a question mark because of an injury, sophomore Jake Anderson has taken over and he adds quickness to the P-O attack. Running backs Dustin Shuey, Nick Patrick and Mason Pryde handle the running game, and Aaron Mason is the P-O top receiver. The Mounties have shown improvement each week, except for a step back at Tyrone, and they will have to slow down Tobias and the Ram offense in this game. Outlook â€” Both teams are looking for their second victory here, and this could be very close. The team that makes the fewest mistakes will likely come away with the win. Kickoff is scheduled for 7.
STATE COLLEGE (2-3) AT CHAMBERSBURG AREA (4-1)
State College missed its chances against Central Dauphin last Friday and then couldnâ€™t recover from two gamechanging plays in its 34-0 loss to the Rams. Now, SC travels to 4-1 Chambersburg for another big Mid-Penn Conference game that will severely test the resolve of the Little Lions. Chambersburg defeated Central Dauphin, 23-20, in a nail-biter earlier in the season, and its only loss came against Cumberland Valley last Friday. Chambersburg is primarily a running team and is led by Tyler Updegraff (83 carries for 585 yards) and Tyler Heisey (85 carries, 349 yards). As a team, Chambersburg has run the ball 240 times for 1,217 yards, but it has only a total of 221 yards passing. Quarterback Chris Galbraith has 11 completions in 39 attempts for 198 yards, and he only throws enough to keep opposing defenses honest. State College, even though shut out against Central Dauphin, still had just fewer than 300 yards of offense. Quarterback Pat Irwin leads the SC attack, while Jordan Misher is the leading rusher and John Weakland, Anthony Misher and Jordan Misher are the leading receivers.
oCTober 3-9, 2013 State College had a big win at Harrisburg in Week 4, but the loss to CD was a step backwards. Chambersburg will be a huge test for the Little Lions. Outlook â€” State College had three turnovers against Central Dauphin â€” including a pick-6 â€” and making sure that is not repeated will be a big factor in Fridayâ€™s game. If SC can slow down the Chambersburg running game and force it to pass, this could be a close game. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
CLEARFIELD (5-0) AT BELLEFONTE (0-5)
This is a game between two teams with vastly different outlooks. Undefeated Clearfield is on a mission, and it has already taken out league foes Penns Valley, Central, Huntingdon and Central Mountain. Bellefonte, on the other hand, is trying to find its way under a new coach and with a very young group of players. It has not been easy for the Raiders, who are 0-5, but head coach Shanon Manning will no doubt be looking for his team to improve each week regardless of who the opponent is. All-purpose quarterback/running back Christian Lezzer is just about all anyone needs to know about Clearfield. He has a total of 1,247 yards of offense for the Bison this season, including 828 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Tyler Stratton has also gained almost 500 yards on the ground so far and has scored seven touchdowns. In all, Clearfield has rushed for 1,807 yards on the ground for an average of 360 yards per game and has chalked up 27 touchdowns running. Bellefonte has shown flashes that it can play with good teams â€” it was behind by only a point to Central Mountain at the half â€” but mistakes and turnovers have been a problem, especially in the second half. Outlook â€” Bellefonte will display lots of effort, but Lezzer is a D-I caliber athlete and he will be the difference in this game. Kickoff at Rogers Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m. In other area games this week, Huntingdon (2-3) visits Central Mountain (1-4) and St. Josephâ€™s (2-3) travels to Chestnut Ridge (3-2).

The Centre County Gazette
More changes in store at Mountain View (Editorâ€™s note: This is the second part of a column examining the changes that the Mountain View Country Club has undergone since being acquired by new owners.) BOALSBURG â€” The Mountain View Country Club, now owned by Martha and Charles McIntyre of Bethlehem â€” also owners of the Ramada Inn â€” previously was under the management of the State College Elks organization. Martha McIntyre is a State College native (her maiden name is Briceson) and according to PGA club professional Jack Brennan, thatâ€™s how the McIntyresâ€™ interest in the State College area originated. The facility was a semi-private golf course that opened in 1963. Designed by Lowell Erdman, the course measured 6,190 yards from the middle tees and had a slope rating of 123 and a 70.9 USGA rating. The course now plays 5,590 yards and is a par 71. Thus far, the major changes to the golf course were made on No. 4, which was a par 4, and is now No. 6 and a par 3. Hole No. 5 was a par 5, and is now No. 4 and a par 4. Hole No. 6 was a John Dixon covers par 4, and is now No. 7 and a par 5. An golf for The Centre easier way to describe the changes â€” County Gazette. Email him at Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 7 are now Nos. 6, 4, 5 sports@centre and 7, respectively. countygazette.com. â€œAt this point, those were the initiation for the changes,â€? stated Jack Brennan. â€œTo help us with these changes, even though they had been talked about for years, we have done this all with the assistance and guidance of Heatwole Golf Design Ltd. of State College. He (Dave Heatwole) was with the Jack Nicklaus Design Company for seven years and has done over 70 golf courses while assisting Jack Nicklaus all over the world. I think thatâ€™s really important to be noted at this point. â€œJust to stress that these changes just werenâ€™t created to make changes to the golf course,â€? Brennan continued. â€œThe changes were made to better the golf course. Do we think we have done that? Yes, we do. Does everybody agree? No. Some people do not agree but we think we have a more fair, more playable and still challenging golf course. And by the looks at the scores being posted, we have been able to maintain a challenging golf course.â€? Other changes to the course will be made during 2014. â€œWe are still looking at some possible other changes to some other holes, but our definite plans for 2014 are to change No. 12 into a semi-island green which would make it a spectacular hole,â€? explained Brennan. â€œThe older members at the Elks wanted to make those changes before and have talked about it and have told me they wanted to do it, but itâ€™s a very expensive project to do. But now the new owners are willing to make those changes to make this a spectacular golf hole there on No. 12. â€œNo. 13, and for anyone in Centre County that has played that hole, understands that the green is a very difficult green and Iâ€™m sure anyone that has played it and has 3, 4, 5 putted will understand why we will level the green out. â€œ(Another hole) we are still looking at for future changes (is) No. 3. With the way the pond is designed it makes it very difficult for the average golfer because of them having to lay up to a 160-180 yard shot into a green on a par 5 and itâ€™s very unfair,â€? stated Brennan. â€œWe are looking at that down the line. So, again, at present we have changed 4-7, 12-13 for 2014, and down the line we will look to make other changes.â€? All of the facilities at Mountain View Country Club are open to the public and memberships to the various sites are available to the public. â€œThe restaurant, the golf course and banquet facilities, bar, restaurant are all open to the public now,â€? said Brennan. â€œI canâ€™t speak for everyone but it seems most of the members are happy with the improvements that are being made. The clubhouse has been upgraded in every way, the
golf course maintenance equipment has been upgraded, and the plans for the clubhouse in 2014 (are that) the owners are looking to upgrade the locker rooms and add a possible fitness room. Thatâ€™s our plans for the clubhouse in 2014. â€œWe do what to stress that the public is welcome and it seems the word is getting out slowly on the fact that we are now a public facility,â€? said Brennan. â€œWe also offer yearly club memberships and the memberships are fantastic priced ... a new price structure will be available in October. And, we will have a six-month payment plan for those who do not want to pay the membership upfront. â€œWe are trying to make it family-oriented with a payment option and all the dues will be $1,500 and under. We also offer an annual cart fee where you pay $675 and that will be your cart fee for the entire year. Thatâ€™s a great incentive for the golfer that rides a lot and we have several that took advantage of that this season and Iâ€™m sure we will have even more next year. The 2014 membership also includes the outdoor swimming pool. â€œBut basically you can pay your dues, and get a cart for around $2,000, and we believe itâ€™s the best dollar-fordollar value anywhere around and not exclusive to Centre County,â€? said Brennan. â€œ...(and) in some case it would be under $2,000, because we still offer a 10 percent discount for Elks members.â€?

NITTANY COUNTRY CLUBâ€™S COLYER CLAIMS NCPGA WIN
PENN STATE CENTRE COUNTY UNITED WAY GOLF TOURNAMENT
While Nittany Country Clubâ€™s Chuck Colyer did not win the final 2013 North Central Pennsylvania Golf Association Senior Series event, held at the Toftrees Resort and Golf Club, Colyer did manage to claim the overall points title in the 60- to 69-year-old division. The top four points leaders, in each division, were eligible for the top prize using a modified points schedule that awards 200 points for first, 150 for second, 100 for third and 50 for fourth. In the 60- to 69-year-old division, Steve Allen was one shot better than Toftrees Terry Cooperâ€™s 79. Alan Rhodes closely followed Allen and Cooper with a round of 80 while Colyer posted an 81 for fourth place and enough points to be the overall champion in the age division. Nittanyâ€™s Joe Beigle tied for seventh, shooting a round of 88. Bucknellâ€™s Gary Fry and Boyd Mertz were double winners, winning their respective flight championships and claiming their respective points titles on the same day in the 70- to 79-year-old and 80 and older divisions. Carl Stackhouse of Mill Race Golf Course finished the season in the same fashion he started it, by winning. Stackhouse, who won the 50- to 59-year-old division in the first event of the season at the Eagles Mere, fired a one-underpar 71 on his way to claiming the championship of the 2013 NCPGA senior series. While Stackhouse posted a victory on the day, it was Bucknellâ€™s Tim Harpster who recorded the seasonal victory in the pointâ€™s race of the 50- to 59-year-old division. Harpster, whose five victories on the season placed him in the driverâ€™s seat for the points coming into the day, barely held on for a five-point victory to claim the 2013 points championship over Stackhouse. Stackhouseâ€™s 71 was six shots better than the next competitor on this day. Mill Raceâ€™s Randy Lynch posted 77 for second place and Rick Everett of Belles Springs fired a 78 to round out the top three in the 50- to 59-year-old division. Nittanyâ€™s Richard Knepp finished ninth posting a round of 89. The top three places in the gold tee division of 70- to 79-year-olds were Gary Fry (78), Al Kline Sr. (79), and Eagles Mereâ€™s Bob McNutt (82). Nittany Country Clubâ€™s Whitey Noll and Frank Webster carded rounds of 85 to tie for fifth. The 80 and older division found Boyd Mertz at the top for the sixth time this year, shooting a 93. Bucknellâ€™s John Arbogast came up one-shot short, shooting a 94, while Irv Levy, of White Deer Golf Course, carded a 99 for third. Nittanyâ€™s Sam Markle was seventh,

PSU women’s soccer squad takes care of business By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH
UNIVERSITY PARK — The Indiana women’s soccer team came into Jeffery Field on Sunday afternoon unranked but with an impressive 8-1-1 record this season. With its physical and inspired play, Indiana did everything it could to get the full attention of No. 8 Penn State. The Hoosiers should have been careful of what they wished for. Indiana had not given up a second-half goal all season, and after battling the Nittany Lions to a one-goal stalemate in the first half, the Hoosiers seemed to be primed to take PSU down to the wire. But the Nittany Lions came out for the second half restive and unhappy with their performance in the first 45 minutes, and they displayed some of the reasons why they have won 15 straight Big Ten championships. Goals by Tani Costa, Emily Hurd and Maya Hayes, along with a refocused defensive effort, propelled the Lions to a goingaway, 4-1 victory that marked their ninth of the season and third in the conference. Costa’s goal was the catalyst for the second-half PSU resurgence. With the score still tied at 1-1 eight minutes into the final period, Costa took a crossing pass from Hurd and slammed it past Hoosier goal keeper Shannon Flower. The Nittany Lions never looked back from there. “Indiana came in and they were flying,” Penn State head coach Erica Walsh said. “I thought they took it to us early in the game, and we just weren’t prepared. They won a large percentage of the first, second and third balls, and to me, that’s just effort. They had more desire than we did in the first half. “I thought our second half was much better, but we can’t afford to give that time up, especially against a good team like Indiana.” The match started with Penn State taking the early lead after a goal at the sixminute mark by Raquel Rodriguez put PSU up 1-0. But Indiana, playing tight mid-field

Finally, at the 25-minute mark, Monica Melink tied the game with a header off of a pass by Rebecca Chandler, and Indiana took firm control of the momentum. Indiana got three more shots in the half after that, but PSU goalie Britt Eckerstrom, who had five saves in the first half alone, kept the Lions away from further damage. “We had a rough first half,” Costa said, “but in the second half our mentality was better, our fight, desire, and communica-

tion on the field were a lot better. We connected a lot better and we fought it out. “At halftime, we talked about our mentality and how it wasn’t good enough, and it wasn’t good enough for each other. We had to protect Jeffery Field and come out and play for 90 minutes rather than letting off the gas pedal.” Penn State began to attack immediately in the second period. Within the first six minutes, the Nittany Lions had shots on goal by Mallory Weber, Costa and Kori Chapic, but they were all saved by Flower. But two minutes after Chapic’s shot, Costa slipped into the middle of the Indiana box, took the pass from Hurd, and gave Penn State the lead for good. “Em Hurd had a great play on the outside,” Costa said, “and she did it a few plays earlier, but I didn’t get the shot off. She did it again, and I was able to execute it that time. We knew it was coming.” Five minutes later, it was Hurd’s turn. After chasing down a loose ball at the top of the box, Hurd drove one in just out of the reach of Flower and into the top of the
goal for a 3-1 Penn State lead. “I’ve been working on it (her shot) a lot in practice,” Hurd said, “and I saw the spot and I thought that I’m going for it. And I’m really happy that it came off as well as it did.” With the Penn State defense still clamping down on Indiana, Hayes added the final goal when she beat Flower into the left side of the goal after a pass by Taylor Schram. For Hayes, after a rough afternoon of physical play against the Indiana defenders, it was a welcome release. “I was determined to get a goal today,” Hayes said. “It was happening one way or another, whether it came off of their mistake or my mistake, whatever, it was going to come. Any way I can contribute to this team.” Penn State now goes on the road for two games at Wisconsin on Friday, Oct. 4, and Minnesota on Sunday, Oct. 6. The Nittany Lions follow those with three home games against Michigan, Ohio State and Illinois.

UNIVERSITY PARK — The future of the first three games of Penn State hockey’s season are now up in the air following the government shutdown Monday night. “As a result of the government shutdown, the Department of Defense has suspended all intercollegiate athletic competitions at the Service Academies.” A release by the Department of Defense reads. For Penn State that means an October 11 date with Army to open the 2013 season and the Pegula Ice Arena is far from a guarantee.
As if that wasn’t enough, Penn State is scheduled to travel to take on Air Force for a two game series starting Oct. 18. “We’re monitoring the situation and will provide updates as they become available,” A Penn State spokesperson said. As of Tuesday, the game is still expected to be played although there is no immediate indication when the government shutdown is expected to conclude. The government shutdown is the first in almost two decades. It came as a result of national budget disputes largely related to President Obama’s health care law. The longest government shutdown lasted 21 days in 1995.

Pivotal year arrives as Lions begin practice By BEN JONES
UNIVERSITY PARK — For head coach Patrick Chambers his third season in Happy Valley is shaping up to be the most important in the program’s recent history. The return of senior guard Tim Frazier along with DJ Newbill and a host of other talented Nittany Lions puts Penn State in a position to try and make a move in a stacked Big Ten conference. How much of a move is anyone’s guess but the pieces are undeniably there. Heading into the 2013-14 season the Nittany Lions are as deep as they have ever been under Chambers. Compared to last season, Penn State will essentially add seven players to the remaining core of the 2012 squad. Four freshman will hit the court for the first time along with transfer guards John Johnson and Allen Roberts. All six of those players will join Frazier after a season off due to an Achilles tendon injury. With a brief European tour under their belts, the Nittany Lions have already practiced and played together before Saturday’s first official practice. A new rule passed this May allows college programs to begin practicing 42 days before their first game of the season. With the Nittany Lions starting play on Nov. 9 they can start practice now, on Sept. 28. And they’ll need each and every practice if making a move in the Big Ten is on the schedule. There is a lot to digest for Nittany Lion fans, so here are a few major storylines to keep in mind heading into the season.
After a season off Tim Frazier will make his return to the active roster looking to pick up where he left off. One of the Big Ten’s most dynamic players; Frazier should take the load off of DJ Newbill’s shoulders and allow Newbill to focus on playing off of the ball. Frazier was an active fixture on the sideline last season, but his ability to make his teammates better, especially less experienced ones, will be vital to Penn State’s success this year. By all accounts Frazier is 100-percent healthy but even the best players will have a little rust to work off as real games get going this year. Getting both Newbill and Frazier on the same page will be vital as well. Great players can struggle to successfully complement each other on the court.
Penn State was very rarely out-worked last year, but they often were out-shot by better teams. If the Nittany Lions are going to win any games in conference play this season they’ll have to play with the energy that has become a staple of Chambers’ time at Penn State and they’ll have to score. The Nittany Lions shot just under 40-percent from the floor last year, one of the worst percentages in the nation. Penn State has showed the ability to get open looks at the basket, but that’s only half the battle of scoring.
To steal a phrase from the football program, getting role players to bring their

game to the next level will be essential. Chambers can expect the same effort from players like Frazier and Newbill, but the ability to win will hinge largely on the likes of Brandon Taylor, Ross Travis, and Donovon Jack who demonstated a wide array of performances last year. Improvement is key across the board, but improvement coupled with consistency is essential to winning more games. Travis is the second leading returning rebounder in the Big Ten after finishing fifth in the conference last year (7.4 rpg). He posted double-doubles in three of his last seven games and will join sophomore Brandon Taylor, who made 32 threes in his freshman season. Despite the additions of seven players to the roster, six members of the ‘12-’13 team are no longer with the team. Those departed players supplied 47.3% of points, 59% of 3PM, 39.4% of rebounds, and 44.5% of assists. So even with the likes of Frazier and Newbill returning the need for players to step up and fill those holes is aparent.
Penn State’s non-conference schedule is a mixture of road challenges like Pittsburgh and Penn and winnable home games. The Nittany Lions historically have struggled to win at early season tournaments. A two-day event at the Barclays’ Center in Brooklyn is a chance to pick up a few neutral site road wins. Reasonably speaking Penn State could very well be 6-0 by the time the they head to Brooklyn. If the Nittany Lions can start off strong it’ll go along way towards building confidence as the conference schedule grows near. Chambers touched on many of these issues in an interview with GoPSUsports. com. Here are some of the highlights:
CHAMBERS ON LEADERSHIP:
“Tim, D.J., Ross and Alan Wisniewski are the guys I’m leaning on for leadership. Those four guys have really shined over the last couple years, and some of them, over the last couple months. They have earned the right, and captaincy in my program is a big deal. They have earned the right, and I like having multiple guys, not just one or two. We are going to have four this year. With them coming hard every day and understanding what the model is and understanding what Penn State Basketball is, I look for the younger guys to get in line very quickly.”
CHAMBERS ON THE NEWCOMERS:
The Nittany Lions welcome four freshmen — Payton Banks, Geno Thorpe, Julian Moore and Graham Woodward — to the roster for 2013-14. Additionally, transfers Allen Roberts and John Johnson (following the fall semester) will add depth to the rotation. Jordan Dickerson, a 7-foot center, will practice with the Nittany Lions in 2013-14 while he sits out due to NCAA transfer rules. Chambers is excited about the addition of the talented newcomers. “What I learned about the freshmen (during the European tour) is that they are going to be ready to play. They compete. They came in here with a chip on their shoulder. They are winners. They love to play. So there is half the battle right there. We work really hard at practice, and they are going out after these veterans. Our practices have been unbelievable with the competition level. The guys want to win every drill. It’s awesome. And that’s exactly what you need. With the trip, the freshmen understand our drills. They understand terminology. They are ahead of the curve. They’ve had 10 practices. They have great relationships with the older guys. The freshmen have really listened to the older guys, and they are really coachable.” “Allen Roberts is every bit of 6-4 and weighs 220 pounds. He can really shoot the basketball. I think that is something that we needed out there to go along with Tim, D.J. and Ross. Now you have a flat out three-point shooter who can really fill it up. And he has a Big Ten body. He’s going to see significant minutes. With it being his fifth year in college, his experience is really going to help us. John Johnson plays (for the first time on) Dec. 22 against Mount St. Mary’s. He is a scorer. He’s going to come in and score in a lot of different ways. He can hurt you from three. He’s got a nice floater. He’s got the mid-range jumper. He’s got all kinds of finishes around the basket. But he brings a toughness, too. He is another 21, 22-year-old kid who has ex-
perience. He played at Pitt. He’s played in the BIG EAST. He has an understanding that this is a man’s game. I’m excited about what he is going to bring to our team come Dec. 22. Then we have Jordan Dickerson, who is 7-foot. It’s going to be great for him to develop over the next year, but it’s going to be great for practice. He’s going to be a rim protector. In the Big Ten, you have all kinds of big bodies. It’s going to be exactly what we need to prepare for Mitch McGary from Michigan, AJ Hammons from Purdue and bigs like that.”
CHAMBERS ON THE STYLE OF PLAY:
“We’ve got to score in the 70s. We need to get up and down the floor. We can’t hold Tim Frazier back. If we become a halfcourt team, it doesn’t bode well to use his speed, quickness and talent. It starts on defense with getting stops. We’ve got to defend. We’ve got to rebound. People ask
us how we are going to rebound? Ross Travis was the second-leading rebounder in the Big Ten returning. And when you go back, Tim Frazier was at 6.7 rebounds per game before his injury. D.J. was nearing six rebounds per game. I’m fine with our rebounding. Our rebounding will be fine. We’ve got to defend, we’ve got to rebound and we’ve got to go. We need to make good decisions. I’d like to score in the 70s and hold our opponents down in the 60s.”

When Scott Good founded Goodco Mechanical Inc., located at 1155 Benner Pike, Suite 120 in State College, he had two driving forces to do so: having a company that provided exceptional heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing services, and having a company that provided great employee satisfaction. Despite being pleased with the drive-by traffic on the Benner Pike, Good said his business is outgrowing its current facility, which houses both Goodco Mechanical and Good’s other company, Energy Stewards Inc. “We need more office, warehouse and parking space,” he said. The companies are also in a hiring mode, Good said, and he noted that one of his companies will probably move to a new location in the near future. Goodco Mechanical offers ways to lower the energy costs of homeowners by changing how they heat their homes. By replacing an older heating system, such as one that uses heating oil, with heat pumps, a geothermal system or Mitsubishi ductless heat pump, energy costs can be significantly
cut during colder months of the year. “We have many options,” Good said. Goodco Mechanical provides both residential and commercial services and installations including heating, air conditioning, plumbing and automatic temperature control systems. Scott Good Goodco Mechanical is also a Bryant Factory Authorized dealer and a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond contractor, and provides specials and rebates for certain services during the fall. Good started Energy Stewards Inc. in August 2010. It provides energy-efficient lighting options to outdated commercial spaces. Good said his clientele for Energy Stewards is expanding from Centre County throughout the state.

Carpenter and Colvin to share acoustic evening From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Acclaimed singer-songwriters and longtime friends Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin will share the stage as a duo, performing material spanning their vast catalogs and some of their favorite songs by other artists, in an acoustic concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, in Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium. Carpenter, whose songs speak to the most personal and universal of life’s details, has recorded 12 albums and sold more than 13 million records. With hits such as “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards, two Country Music Association Awards and two Academy of Country Music Awards. Last fall she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Zoë/Rounder released “Ashes and Roses,” Carpenter’s newest album, in 2012. The recording features a duet with James Taylor on the track “Soul Companion.” Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, including two for the hit single “Sunny Came Home,” and has been nominated for another seven. She has released 10 albums, appeared on countless television and radio programs and had her songs featured in major motion pictures. “All Fall Down,” Colvin’s eighth studio album, came out in 2012. Recorded in Nashville and produced by her longtime friend Buddy Miller, the album features a group of stellar musicians, including Ali-

Doc Severinsen to bring the swing to Eisenhower From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — During the golden era of latenight television, Johnny Carson was the king of comedy, Ed McMahon the faithful sidekick and Doc Severinsen the flamboyantly dressed leader of the band. Carson and McMahon are gone, but Severinsen continues to entertain audiences across America with his terrific trumpeting and swinging big band. Severinsen and His Big Band perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium. Thanks to plenty of time in the practice studio, Severinsen still blows a mean horn and hits all the high notes. But he also surrounds himself with choice musicians with whom he’s more than happy to share the spotlight. The band’s repertoire includes Duke Ellington and Count Basie standards, other big band classics, pop, jazz, ballads and, of course, The Tonight Show theme song. Carl Severinsen, nicknamed “Little Doc” as a child because his father was a dentist, has more than 30 albums to his credit. He learned to swing firsthand from the icons of the big band era. In the late 1940s, after service in the army at the end of World War II, the Oregon native toured first with Tommy Dorsey’s orchestra and then Benny Goodman’s big band. In 1949, Severinsen became an NBC staff musician. By 1962, he was in the first trumpet chair of The Tonight Show Band. Five years later he became the band’s music director, a position he held for a quarter century. “Artistic Viewpoints,” an informal moderated discussion featuring a visiting artist or local expert, is offered in Eisenhower one hour before the concert and is free for ticket holders. The discussion regularly fills to capacity, so seating is available on a first-arrival basis. Tickets can be purchased online at www.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

Congress’ role in the home mortgage debate Much has been written, proposed and even encoded into the law of the land as a result of real estate speculation, bubble bursting and its related fallout. I was not a party to any of this multiyear event, easily avoiding the problems through the application of sound financial practices. Yet here we are again headed down the same road — like one definition of insanity, which is doing the same thing over again and expecting a different outcome — and the results are likely to once again be financially catastrophDan Nestlerode ic to the players, both is a registered borrowers and lenders. investment advisor Now, however, the at Nestlerode & lender is the federal Loy Investment government and its Advisors, State shortfalls are covered College, and a by taxpayers. The columnist for mortgage market is statecollege.com. bad, almost as bad as the student loan market, but that is fodder for another article. The Dodd-Frank legislation has seriously complicated the business of borrowing and
lending and has attempted to solve problems such as banks with no skin in the game, the concept of “too big to fail” and other supposed issues that led to the financial collapse of December 2007 through 2009 from which we are still trying to emerge. Housing prices collapsed in that period as a result of the abolition of sound financial lending standards by the banks (encouraged and legislated by Congress through FHA and the Community Reinvestment Act as amended), the development of the shadow banking business, the guarantees of both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and hopelessly naive ratings agencies. Add to that list the politicians who blindly believe that home ownership is appropriate for all Americans and many uninformed and financially incompetent borrowers chasing that dream, and that provides enough blame to go around to every party in this circus. When the poor make bad financial decisions, the damage is generally limited to themselves and their immediate families. When Congress makes bad financial decisions, for whatever great and supposedly good intentions, the damage spreads far beyond Congress and impacts the entire country, and, in this case, the economies and governments around the world. We generally expect the people who make the rules to do a better job managing the downside risk of their endeavors.
Alas, such is often not the case. So it falls to you and me to avoid the problems heaped upon us by the well-intended leaders of the political and financial systems. While Congress lamented that the banks had nothing to lose by playing the fast and loose lending game they encouraged (no “skin in the game” since the mortgages were packaged and sold to investors), their silence about the borrower’s or homeowner’s skin in the game was deafening. Banks cannot force people to borrow money. Borrowers have a responsibility to understand the commitment they are undertaking and to follow the time tested financial principles of mortgage loans and home ownership. First, have 20 percent to put down when buying a home. This is important for two reasons: first, it acts as a cushion should home prices decline, and second, if you’ve saved the required down payment (plus closing costs), it’s likely you’ve also developed some good financial habits like saving money and spending less than you make. For mortgage lending to work for the lender and the borrower, the 20 percent down rule serves as protection for all parties to the transaction. When Congress and the financial industry attempted to rewrite this financial principle by requiring smaller down payments (less skin in the game for the borrower), the die was cast for a collapse of the mortgage markets.
Now the bureaucrats are again pecking away at the 20 percent standard, which will lead to problems later. Maybe it is time to get the bureaucrats out of the banking business, and to let the foolish bankers fail and the foolish borrowers rent again. Not everyone should be a homeowner. Despite efforts to encourage home ownership, our current rate is about 64 percent. This is similar to the rate in Canada, where the government does not encourage people to buy homes, there is no FHA, Fannie or Freddie, and mortgage interest is not tax deductible. Aside from meeting mortgage payments, homeowners must also cover maintenance and repairs and buy insurance, all of which add up to much more than just the mortgage payment. Home ownership is never to be taken lightly because, for most people, their homes are a major financial commitment. So my recommendation is to get politics out of home ownership and let bankers be bankers and let borrowers be borrowers. The market, if Bernanke and the Fed would stop manipulating interest rates, would sort the wheat from the chaff and the system would work successfully as it did for decades before politics got involved and someone coined the phrase “too big to fail.” Surely, the road to systemic collapse is paved with good intentions.
Just being OK isn’t OK for business growth
By DAVID M. MASTOVICH Special to the Gazette
Recently, a colleague of mine said, “That’s how it is everywhere,” when I mentioned something I thought was a weakness. This got me thinking of how we rationalize challenging situations and stifle productivity with phrases such as: “That’s just how it is.” “It’s like that everywhere.” “That’s the way we’ve always done it.” And my personal favorite, because it simultaneously avoids the issue and places accountability on someone else: “I’m not sure why they do it that way.”
Whether due to apathy, impulsiveness or issue avoidance, hiding behind these phrases feeds our instinctive desire to maintain the status quo. Productivity suffers. Personal growth is stalled. Instead of thinking or blurting phrases like those above, remember these: “Just being OK isn’t OK.” “If you aren’t offering solutions to the problem, you are part of it.” “There might be a new and better way than the way you’ve always done it.” And my personal favorite because it simultaneously addresses the issue and accepts joint responsibility for the outcome: “Why don’t we try (insert new idea) be-

cause (insert rationale for new idea)?” You might be thinking that you’re tapped out. You have no more bandwidth. You already multitask every waking hour. I understand. I’m not suggesting you add work hours or take on dramatic new responsibilities. I’m also not saying there’s always a clear-cut answer or that coming up with creative ideas is easy. I’m suggesting you take the time to think about potential solutions rather than just spending time pointing out flaws, or worse, doing nothing and accepting the status quo. It doesn’t have to be a Herculean effort towards process improvement. Just take a common sense approach to the challenges you notice or hear about: n Engage co-workers and friends.
n Ask both “Why?” and “Why not?” n Brainstorm on potential solutions. n Write down specifics and build an action plan. n Present your ideas and findings to others. You might be surprised when it recharges your batteries and doesn’t take as much time as you thought. You have ideas that could make a difference. Have the courage to articulate them. If more people do, we might even be able to say, “That’s how it is everywhere.” David M. Mastovich, is president of MASSolutions, an integrated marketing firm.
