Borough budget talks begin

Small Business Saturday showcases local shopping flair

By NATHAN PIPENBERG correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — The State College Borough Council has begun reviewing spending plans for the upcoming year, which include a $1.1 million budget increase and tax increase. Each year, the budget deliberations result in hours of discussion and a final budget that reaches hundreds of pages in length. The process provides a glimpse into the way the borough spent money over the previous 12 months, as well as the changes council has in store for future expenditures. As projected, the operating budget for the borough will rise from about $22.2 million in 2013 to $23.4 million in 2014. To make up the difference in expenses, a tax increase of 1.5 mills has been proposed. One mill brings in about $400,000 into borough coffers. The last time taxes were raised in the borough was 2009. Over the course of several meetings in November so far, council members debated the merits of specific spending hikes and cuts and heard presentations from borough officials. Some upcoming plans that reflect the budget hike include a $9.7 million project that will include renovations to the borough’s Public Works facility on Osmond Street and the section of Atherton Street between College and Beaver Avenues. Also slated for 2014 is a $775,000 update to Pugh Street that will add turn lanes and repair the street’s surface. At the meetings, council also sat down to presentations detailing the 2014 budgets for individual borough departments. Budget, Page 5

STATE COLLEGE — As Small Business Saturday approaches, many area business owners attribute much of their success to their location. Whether it’s the Centre Region as a whole or a quaint little town square, these shop owners say it’s the people and community that will show support on Nov. 30. Duncan Crane, co-owner of Crystal Cave on Calder Way in downtown State College, said his store just opened over the summer, so this will be his first Small Business Saturday. “I don’t really know what to expect,” he said, explaining the potential competition from Nittany Mall and various large retail stores. “I really hope there’s a small business community out there.” Crane said his jewelry store, in which customers can make their own jewelry using beads, precious stones and other materials, will offer a buy-one (or two), get-one free deal on Nov. 30. Small Business Saturday hours at the store, located near India Pavilion, will be no different than regular hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays.

ON DISPLAY: The Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County hosted its annual Business Expo at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center on Nov. 20.

Business, industry shine at annual expo By HARRY ZIMBLER correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County’s Annual Business Expo featured more than 90 exhibitors at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center on Wednesday, Nov. 20. “The expo gives exposure to the businesses in Centre County,” said Vern Squier, president and CEO of the CBICC. “It gives them the opportunity to meet with prospective clients in the county and region. In addition, it helps to improve the business environment for both consumer and vendors.” Squier said he was pleased with the turnout for the event. “We are at capacity plus,” he stat-

ed. “Mount Nittany Medical Center is our major sponsor.” The exhibitors appeared to be satisfied with the turnout and the networking opportunities. Jon Levin was hosting the Wells Fargo booth. “I have met a lot of interesting business people,” he said. “We have had a steady flow of visitors. No one has breezed by without stopping. It’s been a time to connect. I also enjoyed the food they are serving. It’s very good.” Levin has been a financial advisor for the past six years. The Lodge at Tussey Mountain was represented by executive chef R.J. Sheroke. “This is our second year at the

STATE COLLEGE — It started off simple enough, a group of State College Area High School alumni gathering to play football on Black Friday. It has grown into something extraordinary. It’s called the “Turkey Bowl,” but it’s actually a touch football tournament that raises money for charity. “It’s grown over the years and kind of taken on a life of its own,” said former State High and Penn State quarterback Chris Ganter. “It started about 10 years go, right after I finished playing at Penn State. We’d get touch (football) games together up in Holuba Hall. We started with 10 to 20 guys and each year it just kept growing.” This year’s Turkey Bowl makes the move to State College’s Memorial Field. Gates will open at 9 a.m. Games begin at 10:30 and Ganter expects everything to be wrapped up by 3. According to Ganter, the move to Memorial Field is an exciting one. “We got to do this one year on Memorial Field and it was awesome. It just hasn’t worked out in the past couple of

years. We had to jump through a couple of hoops to make it happen. I got on it early enough this year to make it happen,” he said. For the past several years, the game has been played on the field near State High’s South Building.

IF YOU GO What: Turkey Bowl Where: Memorial Field, State College When: 10:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 29 Cost: Admission is free, donations are encouraged Ganter said he expects more than 100 former State High players to participate in the Turkey Bowl. Each graduating class fields a team of five or more players for the tournament. There’s a bracket and games are played throughout the day. A champion will be crowned by mid-afternoon. “It really took off,” Ganter said of the tournament. “It’s something people really look forward to and get talking Turkey Bowl, Page 4

Convicted killer loses appeal By ADAM LIDGETT

Lemont house, where a fight ensued. Prosecutors said Marlatt stabbed Struble multiple times with a hunting knife. The Superior Court rejected Marlatt’s argument that prosecutors should not have been able to introduce information about the couple’s drug dealing during Marlatt’s trial. Superior Court Judge Jacqueline O. Shogan wrote, “There would have been no means by which the Commonwealth could have tried this case without reference to drugs and (Marlatt’s) involvement in selling drugs.” Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said she was pleased with the court’s decision. “While we never have to prove motive for murder, in this case it was as clear as it was pathetic,” Parks Miller said in a news release. “Marlatt took a life to violently protect his faltering drug operation and ‘show-off’ his prowess to his girlfriend over $25 worth of marijuana.”

StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — There will be no appeal for a convicted killer who stabbed a Lemont man to death after a marijuana deal turned sour near two years ago. Tyler Marlatt attacked Tyler Struble during a bloody struggle in Struble’s backyard. Both men were 20 years old at the time. Marlatt was convicted of murder, robbery and aggravated assault in November 2012. His sentence of life without parole has been upheld by the state Superior Court. Prosecutors said that in January 2012, Marlatt and his girlfriend Fatima Ghoul were selling marijuana out of their State College apartment. Marlatt became angry with Struble, after Struble shortchanged Ghoul in a drug deal. Marlatt and Ghoul went to Struble’s

Sandusky abuse victim sues ex-coach, Penn State By MARK SCOLFORO The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — A young man who testified last year at Jerry Sandusky’s child sexual abuse trial sued the former coach and Penn State on Nov. 21 over what he said was nearly four years of sexual assault while in his early teens. The lawsuit by the man known as Victim 9 in criminal court records was filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court after talks with the university failed to reach a settlement. The lawsuit claims the boy, now 20 years old, would not have been victimized if university officials had properly handled other complaints about Sandusky. “Penn State provided Sandusky the tools with which to ply the craft of a pedophile long after Sandusky’s formal ties with the university were supposed to have been severed,” the lawsuit said. Victim 9’s lawyers wrote that “it was the inviolable culture of financial and sporting

success of Penn State football that made possible the horrific sexual abuse that forms the basis of this lawsuit.” A university spokesman declined comment, and a message left for a lawyer who has represented Sandusky in other civil litigation was not immediately returned. The young man’s lawyers called him John Doe D and asked that his identity not be disclosed. The Associated Press does not generally publish the names of sexual abuse victims. “It’s now clear that Penn State enabled Sandusky to sexually abuse more than 20 other children before Sandusky preyed on this boy,” wrote the plaintiff’s lawyer, Stephen E. Raynes. “Each of those tragic assaults provided Penn State with the opportunity to stop Sandusky, opportunities which Penn State squandered. We will learn through this lawsuit why that happened and what additional lessons Penn State should learn from this tragic episode in its history.” The lawsuit claims that the university

knew or should have known, after officials fielded complaints about Sandusky in 1998 and 2001, that children such as Victim 9 were “endangered by Sandusky’s predatory pedophilia.” During testimony at Sandusky’s trial in June 2012, Victim 9 said Sandusky began by fondling him and degenerated into forced oral sex before several instances of rape in Sandusky’s State College home. The lawsuit said the abuse took place between summer 2005 and fall 2009, when he was 16 years old. He testified that his muffled screams went unheard by Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, upstairs. “He got real aggressive, and just forced me into it,” he testified. “And I just went with it — there was no fighting against it.” The lawsuit claims Sandusky’s former boss, coach Joe Paterno, invited the boy and Sandusky to have lunch with him at Beaver Stadium and tour the stadium, despite the late coach “being alerted years

earlier to Sandusky’s sexual assault of young boys.” “Each time Sandusky and John Doe D encountered Paterno, Paterno greeted Sandusky, endorsing Sandusky’s favored status with Penn State,” the lawsuit stated. Paterno was fired shortly after Sandusky’s November 2011 arrest and died a few months later. A spokesman and lawyer for his family did not immediately return messages seeking comment. The lawsuit is the first filed against Sandusky and the university since Penn State announced last month it was paying nearly $60 million to settle abuse claims by 26 young men. It’s not clear how many, if any, suits are still pending against the school following those settlements. Victim 9’s lawyers said he has suffered depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, flashbacks of abuse at Sandusky’s hands, sleep disturbance and other problems.

“We have set up a roster of two-hour shifts between 12 and 7,” Greer explained. “We’ll have a team leader or a floor leader and we supplement that with four or five people who can help serve. It does become sort of machine-like. We have a lot of volunteers who donate time and effort.” According to Greer, there is no shortage of volunteers. “People really look forward to contributing. We start talking about it in August,” Greer said. “Dan, Jamie and myself, we really encourage the community spirit. We get a lot of help from everyone — from softball leagues to local businesses. The community really comes out.” Typically, the event raises between $5,000 and $6,000. Greer said the goal is much higher this year. “We’re hoping to double or even triple that,” he said. “It’s a good goal for us and we’re off to a very, very good start.”

CBICC, from page 1 expo,� he said. “We are here to let people know that we offer holiday parties, business meetings and weddings. Setting up was a challenge, but it was worth it for the networking.� Christie Hume, lodge and events manager, has worked at Tussey Mountain for the past 13 years. “Our goal at this expo was to make people aware of our wonderful chef and fabulous events. We only have skiing three months out of the year,� Hume said. Alumni of Leadership Centre County were on hand to answer questions and promote the program. Vana Dainty, class of 2008, and Phil Miles, class of 2011, said they were hoping to generate awareness for LCC. “Participating in the program blew my mind,� Dainty said. Stan LaFuria, executive director of the Moshannon Valley Economic Partnership, said he was very pleased with the business expo. “The CBICC has put together a very nice event,� he began. “It gives us a chance to strengthen the relationships we have and to establish new ones. A lot of business people in the State College area don’t realize what we have in Philipsburg, especially low cost building space. It’s very affordable doing business in the Moshannon Valley.� LaFuria said the event more than met his expectations. The Co.Space organization was promoting its newly established community

house in State College. The facility currently serves as a home to 14 students and six young professionals. The driving force behind the organization is Spud Marshall and Christian Baum. “The concept is to bring experienced change makers and driven students together under one roof,� explained Marshall. The group sponsors two community dinners each month, providing networking opportunities. “We want to connect students to local companies, pitching internships in a much more comfortable environment,� he said. Dan Genditzki represented Lake Raystown Resort. “We handle about 45 weddings a year and business meetings of many sizes. We’d love to have more weddings,� said Genditzki. “Today’s goal is to bring awareness that we are open in the winter. We’ve gotten some very promising leads at this expo.� Dr. Tracey Sepich participated to promote visions therapy for children, especially those with dyslexia. It’s a growing part of the business and she wanted to bring it to the attention of the Centre County business community, she said. Amish dairy farmer and cheese maker John Esh was happy to be an expo participant. He is the owner of local cheese company Goot Essa, which means “good food�. “We are hoping to pick up five new clients at this expo,� he said. “We have a number of partners here, businesses that we support. It helps for us to meet new companies that we might do business with. It has been a very good show for us.�

AT THE CBICC’S annual Business Expo, the Lodge at Tussey Mountain was represented by executive chef R.J. Sheroke and lodge and events manager Christie Hume.

Turkey Bowl, from page 1 about. For seven years or so we’ve been doing it in this style. This year, we will have somewhere between 12 and 15 teams out there.â€? Several classes will be represented at the tournament, including a class from the 1990s. The group from the 90s is the oldest group playing in the tournament, he said. “The guys that played in the 90s, they can’t quite field a team with just one class,â€? Ganter explained. “It gets harder with people getting married, having kids and stuff.â€? Last year, the money raised was donated to Coaches vs. Cancer. This year, money raised will go toward scholarship awards handed out at the State High Senior Banquet. There will also be donations to charities in the names of sick and lost teammates. “A couple of years ago, I thought it would be a cool idea to do it for charity. At that point, we’d have everyone throw in $5, $10, $20, whatever you can. Last year, one of our former teammates was really, really sick so we donated to Coaches vs. Cancer in his name,â€? Ganter explained. Ganter is hoping that by playing at Memorial Field, more fans will come out to watch the games. “I wanted to make it a little bigger. When we were playing at the (high school) track, no one was coming to watch. It’s a big event. There are 120 guys out here playing ‌ I think it’s something that people will want to see,â€? he said. There is no charge for admission to Memorial Field on game day, but Ganter hopes those attending will make a donation. “We’re still figuring out how the funds

implementing an online collection service and adding customers from Bald Eagle to its workload. The Information and Technology Services department also presented a budget with a significant increase. One reason for the $285,000 increase, according to Borough Manager Tom Fountaine, is that several new positions on staff went unfilled in 2013. Funding for one of those positions is included on the current 2014 budget. At recent meetings, council also discussed donations to local organizations, which include $2,000 to the State Theater, $20,000 to First Night State College, and $50,000 to the Discovery Space of Central Pennsylvania. Council has scheduled a public hearing about the budget for Dec. 2. After that, a final review session will take place Dec. 9. Council plans to adopt the $23.4 million budget at a Dec. 16 meeting.

One area where the borough will see increased costs is with the implementation of an online system to keep track of financial records, said Assistant Borough Manager Roger Dunlap, who also functions as the borough’s chief financial officer. The new system will lead to a 17 percent increase in the financial services budget, prompting council member Jim Rosenberger to question whether the system will really be more efficient. But Dunlap said the costs should only be higher while the system is being set up, and will lead to cost savings and reduction of paper waste long term. “It’s not unusual to ramp up funding during the implementation of a system like this,” Dunlap said. In contrast, the borough’s tax office, the Centre Tax Agency, presented a budget nearly identical to 2013, despite also TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette

PURE IMAGINATION, a toy store located in downtown Bellefonte, is one of several area stores that will be taking part in Small Business Saturday on Nov. 30. Small Business, from page 1

a coffee shop and a jewelry store. “We’re all within just a one-block radius,” she said. “It is a very unique little town.” Steve Artz, owner of Gift Adventures at the corner of Beaver Avenue and Pugh Street, said the store has a special event planned in honor of Small Business Saturday. Beginning at noon, artisan James Byrnes will create glasswork outside the store, including glass ornaments. Many of these ornaments can be personalized, Artz said. Nov. 30’s event will also feature balloon sculptures, as well as collaboration with Sweet Tooth Bakery to provide tastings, he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of people come down,” Artz said, explaining that he hopes customers also take the opportunity to see other downtown businesses. “Hopefully we get a lot of support,” he said. Rhett Walsh and Marc Tressler, owners of Pure Imagination Toys in Bellefonte, said Small Business Saturday has been successful for them over the years. “Small Business Saturday brings along with it awareness,” they said. “It gets people thinking there’s more to life than Walmart. That’s always a good thing. In years past, customers have let us know that they are making a concerted effort to visit local businesses and that they appreciate the customer service and selection.” “It’s a great promotion that puts small business in the spotlight,” they added. The store, which opened in 2001, will keep its regular hours on Nov. 30, which are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. “We offer discounts all weekend especially on larger, more expensive items,” Walsh and Tressler said. “We like to surprise our customers.” The toy store, which offers a variety of toys, games, books, educational kits and other items, is located at 102 E. Bishop Street. “I think this area is very supportive of certain small businesses,” Walsh and Tressler said. “Good customer service will always keep them coming back.”

Crane said what may especially help attract shoppers to his store during the holiday season is its focus on customized jewelry. “Everything we do is geared towards what you want,” he said. The holidays, he said, are a great time to design an item for a loved one that is unique and not available anywhere else. Your Perfect Fit, a boutique that specializes in bra fitting, will celebrate its seventh holiday season this year, said owner Debbie Stachowski. Located on the Diamond in historic Boalsburg, Your Perfect Fit will offer 40 to 60 percent off selected items on Small Business Saturday. Saturday store hours will remain the same, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “We always offer extended hours by appointment,” Stachowski said. In honor of Small Business Saturday, Stachowski said the whole town put together a flyer that lists all of the boutiques and what they are offering on Nov. 30. “Every boutique has something a little different and that’s what makes it unique,” she said. Stachowski said what helps make Small Business Saturday so successful for her business and surrounding businesses is the whole town coming together. “It’s always a great day for us,” Stachowski said. “Our customers do support small businesses.” Carolyn Zimmerman, owner of The Wine Shop in Millheim, said although the business isn’t doing anything particular for Small Business Saturday, it does offer complimentary gift wrapping throughout the holiday season, as well as complimentary wine tasting. Located on East Main Street, the shop, which has been open for about three to four years, sells wine from Shade Mountain Winery and Vineyards. Saturday hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Zimmerman said. The Wine Shop’s location is conducive to small businesses, Zimmerman said, because right around the corner are a variety of other small shops, centers and eateries, such as the Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center, Elk Creek Café, an outdoors store, Victim, from page 3

Iran nuke deal buys more time Proponents of the Iran nuclear deal are calling it “a victory for diplomacy.” That very much remains to be seen; certainly it is a premature judgment. The same is true of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dark prophecy that the deal is “a historic mistake.” The real significance is that the deal was done at all, thanks to the relentless diplomacy of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his ability to keep our fractious allies in this endeavor — Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China — on the same page. Of modestly less importance is that the U.S. and Iran talked substantively for the first time in decades, thanks in part to the departure of its bellicose former president, Mohammed Ahmadinejad, and his replacement by Hassan Rouhani, who claims he wants to end Iran’s pariah status. The deal reached over the weekend is an interim arrangement that the parties could easily end at any time; Dale McFeatters however, it does buy six months duris a columnist for ing which the parties can begin the Scripps-Howard much harder task of reaching a longNews Service. term treaty. Iran agreed to stop enriching uranium above 5 percent, the level for running a power plant and to degrade or neutralize its stocks of 20 percent enriched uranium. Bomb grade uranium is 90 percent enriched, a threshold that would undoubtedly provoke a reaction by Israel and the U.S. Iran also agreed to limit the number and capability of the enrichment centrifuges at two of its facilities and halt work on its Arak heavy water facility. Compliance would be overseen by U.N. inspections on a daily basis. In return, sanctions, that have seen Iran’s oil exports cut in half and its currency depreciate 50 percent against the dollar, would be eased by $6 billion to $7 billion. There was one loose end: Iran says the agreement implicitly recognizes its “inalienable right” to enrich uranium. Kerry says that the deal concedes no such right: “It’s not in the document.” Those flatly differing interpretations are an indication of how difficult the next stage of talks will be. The deal could collapse if the U.S. Congress, goaded by Israel, passed tougher sanctions during the life of the agreement; there will be plenty of time for that if, after the six months have passed, Iran thumbs its nose at the world and begins work on a nuclear weapons capability. But Tehran should keep in mind Winston Churchill’s admonition, “To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war.”

Opinion

November 27-December 4, 2013

Obamacare flaws were evident It took a while, but by the end of the first decade of the 21st century all political message makers and strategists had finally heard, and were finally heeding, the voice of the people. “Please lie to me!” That’s what they all thought they heard you telling pollsters. And that’s why they’ve been spoon-feeding you the stuff they thought you wanted to hear. As in: Yes, you can get what you want — without having to pay for it. It began when a newly elected Martin Schram President Barack writes political Obama decided analysis for Scripps-Howard to make reformNews Service. ing the health care system his No. 1 achievement. So, the Republican congressional leadership decided to make preventing Obama’s re-election their No. 1 achievement. Soon America was awash in a tsunami of deceptions, distortions, derisions and flat-out lies. Remember the fear-fomenting from the right that Obama would put your health care fate in the hands of “death panels”? That led to the Obama White House’s launching of a reassurance offensive founded upon this political chestnut: Keep it reassuring and keep it simple. From the president on down, Democrats began talking in bumperstrips: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.” Politically, it worked. The Affordable Care Act, which Republicans derisively labeled Obamacare, be-

MARTIN SCHRAM

came law and was upheld by the Supreme Court. Team Obama seemed to like the sound of “Obamacare.” But then Obama’s health care website turned out to be a dysfunctional disaster. Then things got worse for Obama. Millions of Americans learned his bumper-strip reassurances were untrue. Insurance companies told people who weren’t part of employer-arranged insurance policies they couldn’t get their minimal policies under the new law. Obama went through weeks of weaseling and back-peddling. But it only made him a late-night comedy punchline. Finally, inevitably, he admitted his promises were wrong. Here we must pause to note for the record: So far, there is no smoking gun evidence proving Obama knew the truth but deliberately lied to us. But I’ve just read a way-too-oldto-still-be-smoking document that leaves no doubt Obama’s top health care experts had to have known their boss wasn’t telling the whole truth every time he assured Americans they could keep their health plans and doctors if they liked them. On Nov. 30, 2009, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office issued an analysis of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act proposed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. In an analysis that should have been self-evident to any common sense analyst (or, let’s admit it, any thinking journalist) the CBO concluded that “many individuals and families would experience changes in premiums.” These were individuals who are only a small portion of the one-sixth of Americans who are insured individually and not through employer-negotiated policies that would be “grandfathered” and thus permitted under the new law. Some of these were young and healthy individuals whose minimal policies didn’t cover expenses “such as maternity care, prescription drugs, and

mental health and substance abuse treatment” and required large out-ofpocket expenses. These individuals would be offered new policies with increased coverage — which means increased premiums. Good news: more than half of those individuals were in poor or near-poverty categories and will get government subsidies covering more than half their new premiums. So the new policies won’t cost them more money after all. But the few percentage of Americans whose incomes are above the subsidy ceiling but who buy their own insurance will find Obamacare unsubsidized and more expensive. That’s a truth that should have been self-evident. Yet it wasn’t adequately reported by the news media. Nor was it adequately showcased by Obama’s Republican adversaries. So, while we have no smoking-gun memos telling Obama a policy truth he may not have wanted to hear or use because it was politically inconvenient, we do have our own common sense. And that tells us the president and his team surely feared this truth was a bit too complicated for bumper-strip comprehension. And mainly, given that opening, Republicans could have demagogued and distorted it until they defeated Obamacare as decisively as they defeated the Clinton White House’s Billarycare. Now a new Washington PostABC News poll shows Obama’s job approval is at his all-time low — 42 percent. And a whopping 57 percent now oppose his health care law. Now Obama is frantically (see also: belatedly) trying to make good on his false promises. Even though Obamacare will mean improved health care for most Americans, Obama is desperate to hear an encouraging word. Alas, America’s vox populi has apparently come down with laryngitis.

Mixed emotions on change in rules It’s easy to have mixed emotions about the change in Senate rules that overturns the filibuster employed to block most presidential nominees. On the one hand, requiring 60 votes instead of a simple majority to confirm judges and executive branch nominees has produced a backlog that has denied the chief executive the right to name those he chooses for major jobs as long as they are qualified and have nothDan K. Thomasson is a columnist for ing in their backScripps-Howard grounds that News Service. would cast doubt on their trustworthiness. On the other hand doing away with the rule also could lead to abuses of power. The considerable overuse of the filibuster by Republican opponents in what appears to be a concerted effort to thwart the will of the electorate by preventing Barack Obama from carrying out his second term agenda is shabby policy and has led to the change. It has left large holes in the capability of the judiciary and done considerable violence to good governance. Furthermore, it has been part and parcel of the partisan warfare that has paralyzed the Congress. There are 189 executive nominees awaiting confirmation, 85 for cabinet -level agencies. Obama nominees have had to wait nearly 100 days

DAN K. THOMASSON

longer for Senate approval than did those named by Bush. While Democratic leaders concede there are still hurdles, they believe the rule change will speed things up somewhat. Top priority will be given to nominees Jeh Johnson as Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Yellen to chair the Federal Reserve and Mel Watt to run the Federal Housing Finance Agency. In addition three highly prized nominations to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that have been stalled will be acted on quickly. Republicans opposed to these nominees contend among other things there are enough judges on that important court where members often are among those considered for elevation to the Supreme Court. There are eight sitting judges and six senior jurists now with four having been appointed by Republicans and four by Democrats. Five of the six senior judges were named by Republicans. Enthusiasm for the rule change, however, should be tempered by the knowledge that there have been times when unfit presidential nominees were legitimately derailed in the wake of highly publicized revelations. And that there is a good chance that the move will harden the partisan battle lines. Irate Republican leaders have warned that what goes around comes around if they gain control the Senate in next year’s mid-term elections, which may be less of a long shot than it was given Obama’s dropping approval rating. Some GOP said that under those circumstances they might even try to expand the filibuster ban to include legislation to repeal Obamacare. The House has adopt-

ed bills to do that twice only to see them fail in the Senate. Although the election is a year away fallout over the act’s massively confused start up have improved the GOP position. All this adds up to a Congress that most analysts believe if not utterly broken is at best dysfunctional. Who can argue considering the record of ineffectualness of the last decade? Congress hasn’t passed an appropriations bill in years; it regularly basis its decisions on what is good for its members and not for the rest of the country; it has the most dismal approval ratings of any public institution; it’s leadership is among the weakest in our history kowtowing to ideologically motivated elements in the caucuses of the two parties . That’s only for starters. Democratic leaders committed a major legislative sin by allowing a bill that impacts 18 percent of the economy (health care) to be adopted without one single Republican vote. That alone produced a seismic crack in the body politic that has dominated the domestic agenda since the first year of the Obama presidency. The inexperienced president was so intent in achieving what his predecessors couldn’t, or had the good sense not to, that he let it happen. He has demonstrated without a doubt that he didn’t even know what was in the bill. So now we have his party’s leaders trying to pull the proverbial irons out of the fire with an internal policy change to eliminate a pile up of the bodies he says he needs to run the nation but that Republicans have denied him. He and his fellow Democrats are betting that this decision won’t come back to bite them in the rump. I wouldn’t be too sure.

Tips to make Black Friday shopping successful By SAMI HULINGS shulings@centrecountygazette.com

As the official start to the holiday shopping season, Black Friday offers shoppers amazing and unheard of deals on the latest electronics, toys, clothing, tools and appliances. As you search for deals, refine your shopping lists and plan your attack, use these tips and tricks to get the most out of your early morning (or late night, if you don’t make it to bed after Thanksgiving dinner) shopping trip. n Make a list. Don’t try to browse on Black Friday. Shoppers, low-prices and sought-after items make this almost impossible. It is much easier to navigate the crowded stores when a plan is in place. Make a list of “necessary purchases� and “maybe purchases� to make shopping as stress-free as possible. n Compare prices. After completing your list, check into the price of each item. Competing stores have similar merchandise, especially the season’s hottest items. Check online and in fliers before committing to a purchase. n Always read the fine print. Huge discounts and sales

Weaver’s Store serves Penns Valley community By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

MILLHEIM — Weaver’s Store, just west of Millheim on state Route 45, opened for business in 2012 and is a branch of the original Weaver’s Store in Denver, Lancaster County. The original store was founded by Irvin and Ruth Weaver in 1959; a second Lancaster County location was later opened in Leola. According to store manager Kevin Weaver (who is not related to the founding family), the Weavers were longtime friends of the Burkholder family, owners of Burkholder’s Market near Millheim. The Burkholders invited the Weavers to locate a new store in Millheim next to their market. Weaver’s is a conservative, faith-based company, whose stores are closed on Sundays. Christian music is played on the public address systems at all its stores. The 10,000-square foot Millheim location features a large inventory of clothing, hardware, sporting goods, toys, furniture, housewares, fabrics and many other items. One of the store’s hallmarks is the accepting of special orders of services and merchandise from customers. “We’re continually listening to customers’ requests,� said manager Weaver. A $20 gift card will be given to customers purchasing $100 or more on the evenings of Wednesday, Dec. 11, and Wednesday, Dec. 18. Contact Weaver’s at (814) 349-2650 for more information.

often come with fine print. Whether it’s “exceptions may apply,� “only 100 available� or “until noon,� fine print information tends to get overlooked. To make sure you understand all the rules of the road, don’t forget to read everything in fliers and ads. n Set a budget. Anyone who has ever been shopping on Black Friday knows how easy it is to get caught up in the holiday shopping craze and the deals. Don’t do it this year. Keep your wallet in check by setting a budget and you won’t go overboard. n Don’t buy something just because it is a good deal. Doorbusters and discounts are great things, but that doesn’t mean the items need to be purchased. Question if they are really needed to ensure impulse purchases don’t happen. n Bring store ads. Many stores participate in “pricematching,� meaning if another store advertises an item at a lower price, they will match it. If you only plan on hitting a few stores, this can be a wonderful tool. Proof is needed though, so take all your Black Friday ads with you. Always remember, not all stores will price-match all items. n Bring (some) cash. Even though credit and debit cards are wonderful purchasing companions, swiping often holds up lines, especially on busy days like Black Friday. Many stores will even offer “cash only� lines to ease headaches and keep lines moving. Be your own judge. Don’t carry your entire budget with you, particularly if you are planning on spending hundreds of dollars during the night. Bring enough cash to make your life easier, but don’t bring so much that you are worried about carrying it on you. n Dress comfortably. Reaching for items and speed walking to get coveted items means you want to feel your best throughout the night. To be as comfortable as possible, dress appropriately for your trip. Most importantly,

HMC’s cancer video captures second-place From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY — For the second year in a row, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s entry in the national Pink Glove Dance video competition has resulted in prize money for breast cancer awareness and prevention efforts. The medical center’s video placed second out of more than 100 entries in this year’s contest, resulting in a $10,000 check from competition sponsor Medline Industries made payable to the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition. In addition to the $10,000 in prize money, Penn State Hershey recently presented the coalition with a check for

$2,633, representing proceeds from the Medical Center’s Pink Glove Dance T-shirt sale. Penn State Hershey’s video was produced in conjunction with Hershey Entertainment and Resorts, the medical center’s contest community partner. It features breast cancer survivors and their supporters riding Lightning Racer, one of the 11 roller coasters at Hersheypark, to represent fighting the disease through literal ups and downs. The musical backdrop is “Change the World” by Outasight. The video, which was produced completely by in-house hospital staff, can be viewed at www.pinkglovedance.com. “This important win really means

bringing awareness to this disease that touches just about everybody in some way, shape, or form,” said Kathy Law, director of nursing-perioperative services and executive sponsor of the Medical Center’s Pink Glove effort. Penn State Hershey received 91,198 votes of the nearly 600,000 that were cast in the two-week contest period. The competition included video submissions from hospitals, nursing homes, schools and other organizations. Each of the top three winners received award money to be presented to the breast cancer charity of their choice. “Congratulations to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, which, like last year, made

an amazing video that honors the hundreds of thousands diagnosed each year with breast cancer, as well as honoring the care givers, who so passionately care for those battling this disease,” said Sue MacInnes, Medline’s chief marketing officer. “And for the thousands of dancers participating this year, we thank you for reminding those who are facing cancer that they are not alone.” The original Pink Glove Dance video premiered in November 2009 and featured 200 hospital workers in Portland, Ore., wearing pink gloves and dancing in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention. That video led to the launch of a national contest last year.

Penn State Law offers online program From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Legal professionals trained outside the United States who want to practice law in the U.S., or who work with U.S. clients or multinational companies in their home countries, need to understand the U.S. common law system, which differs significantly from civil law legal systems. The new professional certificate in U.S. business and constitutional law, offered by Penn State Law and delivered online by the World Campus, is designed to prepare legal professionals around the world for understanding critical aspects of the U.S. legal system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have designed three courses spe-

cifically for law students and lawyers who need to understand U.S. law as part of their career development,â&#x20AC;? said Caroline Sheldon, director, Graduate and International Programs, The Penn State University, Dickinson School of Law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program is for students who either cannot come to a law program in the United States in person, but want to learn about U.S. law and work on their professional language skills, or who want to prepare for an LL.M. or J.D. program in the United States in advance.â&#x20AC;? The eight-credit certificate program is Penn State Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first online program. The courses are Introduction to Common Law Analysis and Language, U.S. Constitutional Law and Analysis, and Introduction to

U.S. Business Associations and Commercial Law. The emphasis of the courses is on how U.S. lawyers solve legal problems. Using state-of-the-art interactive learning technology, the courses provide hands-on training to help participants build skills in common law thinking and in legal English language and communication skills. Courses can be taken individually. Course work uses the case method, which is highly interactive and builds critical thinking and analytical skills. In the U.S. Constitutional Law and Analysis course, students will also have an opportunity to view a video recreation of a U.S. law school classroom online to learn about the inter-

active teaching and learning style of these classrooms. Wenjia Ma, of China, who completed the first course in the program and is now enrolled in Penn State Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master of laws program, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helped me to get used to the study style with syllabus, reading assignments, cases and online study systems, which I had not experienced in my previous education. I also benefited profoundly from weekly assignments by practicing my verbal and writing skills.â&#x20AC;? Students will have access to language specialists from Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Applied Linguistics. Courses are semester-based, and students will be able to interact with each other and with instructors.

JOHN RODGERS, of Fulton Bank, addresses students during a recent entrepreneurship worshop held at CPI.

High school entrepreneurs benefit from workshop By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

PLEASANT GAP — A training workshop for the Entrepreneurship Challenge Competition was held on Nov. 22 at Central PA Institute of Science and Technology in Pleasant Gap. In addition to CPI, participating schools included Bald Eagle Area School District, Bellefonte Area School District, Penns Valley Area School District and State College Area School District. The Pennsylvania Entrepreneurship Challenge Competition is a program in which students from schools throughout the state work in teams to formulate business plans. Their plans are evaluated by a panel of judges, and the top five plans at the regional level are submitted to the statewide competition, sponsored by the non-profit Economics Pennsylvania. Founded in 1978, Economics Pennsylvania works with colleges, universities and corporations to help young people develop

sensible economic ways of thinking and vital financial decision-making skills. Savings bonds and cash prizes are awarded to winning teams and teachers. The Centre County event was organized by Allan Darr, president and CEO of ProAct Ltd., a medical instrument development company. The event was sponsored by ProAct, Fulton Bank, Lion Country Kia and Videon Central. Guest speakers and mentors for this event were Darr, John Rodgers of Fulton Bank, Todd Erdley of Videon Central, and Kathleen Warner, a Schreyer Honors student at Penn State majoring in advertising and theater. Warner is the former president of Innoblue, the entrepreneurship organization on the PSU campus that teaches classes in marketing, programming and design. The speakers instructed the students on the skills of formulating business plans, including marketing and sales techniques, identifying a target market, knowing your

competition, and cost estimating and control. The students will use this knowledge, along with guidance from their individual school’s coaches, to formulate plans for potential businesses. At the competition, the plans will be judged based on practicality, completeness and probability of success in the business world. Warner had praise for the Entrepreneurship Challenge program and the students involved. “I think it’s incredibly impressive. They’re in high school and already sitting down working on business plans,” said Warner. “I’m excited to be a part of this, and trying to help them out in any way I can.” Penns Valley business teacher Eric Weaver brought his team of business students to the workshop. Students in his classes are required to formulate business plans in lieu of final exams. The plans will be evaluated by a panel of teachers and

community members, and the top two plans will be submitted to the Entrepreneurship Challenge competition. Weaver’s students have come up with a variety of business ideas, including a homemade dog treats business, a hunting and fishing lodge in the Penns Valley area and a skateboard shop. “Some of these kids have good ideas, but don’t know how to develop them. That’s what this session is all about,” Weaver said. He noted that Penns Valley senior and team member Tyler Zimmerman has been running a small lawn care service for the last two years and wanted to use information from the training workshop to help expand his business. The Centre County Entrepreneurship Challenge competition will be held in the spring. For more information on the program, contact Economics Pennsylvania at (570) 975-5149.

Store features Kennedy writings at open house By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

REBERSBURG — On Nov. 22, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Forefathers Book Store in Rebersburg held an open house featuring “The Writings of John Kennedy.” Half of the profits from that day’s sales went to the East Penns Valley Library in Millheim, which recently reopened as a private community library after being closed as a public branch due to funding cuts. “Being a book lover, the library seemed like a natural thing to support,” said Forefathers owner Keith Bierly. Bierly, a former Centre County commissioner and district justice, noted that nearly 40,000 books have been written about the Kennedy assassination in the five decades since it occurred. Approximately 150 volumes in Bierly’s store feature John Kennedy as their subject. Many are biogra-

phies, and biographies in general are well represented in the store. “We have over 10,000 books and about 6,000 of them are biographies,” said Bierly. His inventory includes biographies of every U.S. president, many first ladies, congressional leaders, Supreme Court justices and American historical figures. He has acquired much of his inventory by attending sales at churches, libraries and book stores in five different states, and from sales of private collections. Bierly said his inventory also includes nearly 5,000 books which are not yet on the shelves of Forefathers. Plans are in place to open a children’s shop in the basement of the store, which is located in the former First National Bank building at 121 E. Main St. Bierly and his wife, Kim, also manage Main Street Yarn, which is located in the rear of the building. Both are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

New Hope Church hosts holiday bazaar By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — The New Hope Lutheran Church in Spring Mills recently held its annual Holiday Craft Fair and Bazaar. The church social hall and lobby areas were filled with many local vendors offering a wide variety of handmade items for sale. Church members served homemade soup and baked goods in the social hall. Large crowds of customers came early, as the food items have developed a reputation for selling out quickly. Bill and Linda Gummo, of Port Matilda, showcased a line of handcrafted wooden items including tree ornaments, candle holders, inlaid wooden puzzles and nativity sets. The Gummos, who are retired, make all the items themselves. Bill Gummo has made custom gun cabinets, tables, chairs and many other wood pieces for years. This

was the couple’s first time participating in the New Hope event, and they were pleased with the turnout of shoppers. Jimmy Brown, a recent Penns Valley High School graduate and historian, presented many old photographs of people and events in the Penns Valley area. Brown sells copies of the old photos, preserving the originals for posterity. He has accumulated a large collection of photos and has more being given to him constantly. Brown says he became involved in Penns Valley history because of his own family history in the area, which dates back several generations. “I am a younger generation,” Brown said. “Who is to take care of the history in Penns Valley when the older generations are gone?” Event organizer Tierney Myers said that the bazaar has been held for 10 years and the funds raised are used by the church for many different projects.

PAWS ADOPT-A-PET Cookie, a black female kitten, hopes to go home for the holidays — to a forever home that is. Cookie was part of a litter of four kittens that came to PAWS after being found without a mom in a yard. Like her litter mates, Cookie is sweet, cute, curious and feisty. She is sure to make you laugh as you watch her play around the house. Like most kittens, Cookie would do well in a home with kids, other cats and dogs. She has already been spayed and is current on her shots. You can read more about Cookie at www.centrecountypaws.org/cats/, or meet her in person at Centre Hall Pet Supply, 2780 Earlystown Road, from Tuesday through Friday, or at PAWS, 1401 Trout Road in State College, Saturday through Monday.

Thanksgiving a great time to fill lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe box with lessons By REBECCA CORUM-WEAVER Special to The Gazette

Thanksgiving, for many, is a time when families come together. It represents the connectedness we feel when we are with extended family and the longing we experience when there is distance between us. Oftentimes included in the celebration are football games, parades, food and fellowship. For me, Thanksgiving represents a day dedicated to being with family and friends. It is a day filled with rich smells from the kitchen, recipes shared for generations, lively conversation, laughter and stories from holidays past about those whose memories remain in spirit. It is a day like no other; a day when family, above all else, takes center stage. I can still remember the Thanksgiving when my grandmother tried to explain her sweet potato pie recipe to my mother-in-law over the telephone. Much of the instructions included a pinch of this and a dab of that and so on. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure either one of them got much out of the conversation related to the actual pie recipe, but they had one heck of a good time laughing about it. You see, my grandmother, Jule Mary, although an excellent cook, never followed a recipe. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to cook solely on instinct, she did. The same people skills she used outside of the home, she applied to cooking. Jule Mary used her keen sense of observation to keep a close watch on strangers in the neighborhood and the same watchful eye to tell when her consistently perfect pie crust was done. If a situation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smell right, so to speak, or feel good, much like if the fruit was mushy, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk away. My grandmother was a patient cook; she never rushed

the process or was ever caught opening the oven door to take even a tiny peek. Likewise, in her style of discipline and interactions with anyone who crossed her path she also was patient. Jule Mary was an intent listener with a great deal of tolerance. Her actions and decisions were purposeful, and each opportunity for error served as an even greater opportunity for growth. Besides her family, her faith and cooking, Jule Mary found joy in the successes of others, as a result of life lessons learned. You see, recipes used in cooking are much like life lessons. Both require a combination of ingredients, whether the recipe calls for baking powder and flour or positive reinforcement and supervision. Thanksgiving is a great time to fill our recipe boxes with life lessons, and here are a few of my favorites: n A cake iced with a dab of â&#x20AC;&#x153;treat others as you would like to be treated.â&#x20AC;? n Biscuits buttered with a bit of â&#x20AC;&#x153;discipline yourself, so others donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to.â&#x20AC;? n And, of course, the mouth-watering pie filling, seasoned with a whole lot of â&#x20AC;&#x153;actions speak louder than words.â&#x20AC;? This Thanksgiving, savor not only momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homemade cranberry relish and Aunt Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apple dumplings, but, as a family, take in a supersized spoonful of special moments. Watch that Thanksgiving Day parade or football game, join in when the kids ask you to play a game or read a story, share family stories from the past, and make sure to serve up one-on-one time by the gallons. It is from these moments that memories are created and recipes for life are learned, tested and taught to the next generation of chefs. Rebecca Corum-Weaver is the reuniďŹ cation coordinator for the Centre County Youth Service Bureau.

On Nov. 17, the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1873 treadle-powered lathe ran for short periods with the help of craftsmen from the Nittany Valley Woodturners group. The museum showed several exhibits of natural edge bowls, turning ornaments, wooden toys, pens and scoops. Woodturners fashioned the items using maple, oak and cherry woods on modern lathes. The Nittany Valley Woodturners is an organization dedicated to promoting woodturning through education. Safety is uppermost as the group meets for skill development and fellowship. The club meets monthly at the State College Area High School South building. All skill levels are encouraged to join. For more information, visit www.nittanyvalleywoodturners.org.

Missed extra point, FG come back to haunt PSU in loss By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Sometimes the fates of overtime are with you. Sometimes they are not. They were not with Penn State on Saturday night. After two previous overtime wins this season, the Nittany Lions could not make it three in a row in their Senior Night showdown with Nebraska in windy and snowy Beaver Stadium. With the teams tied at 20 in the first overtime, Sam Ficken was wide on a 37yard field goal in Penn State’s first possession, and that opened the door for Nebraska. The Huskers took over and on three conservative plays simply maneuvered the ball to the middle of the field for kicker Pat Smith. He didn’t miss. The 42-yard attempt was right down the middle, and Nebraska escaped with a 23-20 victory over the Nittany Lions and its eighth victory of the season. For the 17 players in this year’s senior class, it was a difficult ending to their final game before their home crowd at Beaver Stadium. But it was also a gritty performance against a very good Nebraska team that will likely finish the season with nine wins and in a major bowl game. Zach Zwinak ran the ball 35 times for 149 yards, and Allen Robinson caught eight passes for 106 yards. Freshman Christian Hackenberg completed 16 of 33 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns. Penn State outgained Nebraska 387 to 360 in the game, and the Nittany Lions led three

quarterback Tommy Armstrong up to this point in the game had been ineffective and when he twisted an ankle on a run, Husker coach Bo Pelini replaced him with senior Ron Kellogg. The move paid off immediately. Kellogg came in cold and took Nebraska 91 yards on seven plays for the tying and go-ahead points. Kellogg completed four of four passes on the drive (for 75 yards) and threw a 27yard slant to Quincy Enunwa for the score and a 7-6 Husker lead. “I thought Ron (Kellogg) came in and did a great job,” Pelini said. “He did some good things out there. There were some tough conditions, it was windy, and I thought he handled it well and he provides great leadership.” Penn State retook the lead early in the third quarter, 13-7, after Hackenberg converted a Nebraska turnover into seven points with a 5-yard run. But the ensuing kickoff was one of the turning points in the game. Wide receiver Kenny Bell took Ficken’s kickoff at the goal line, started down the left sideline, cut back to the right, and found clear sailing into the end zone for a 100-yard return that put NU back up top, 14-13. Smith added a 39-yard field goal near the end of the third quarter, and Penn State found itself down, 17-13, going into the final 15 minutes. “It (the kickoff return) was big,” Pelini said. “We turned the football over a couple of times and gave them a short field. Kenny stepped up and made a play. He played real well today, and that was a big play.”

times. Their final drive, in the waning minutes of the game, stalled on the Nebraska 34yard line. “We are giving Nebraska a lot of credit,” Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien said. “They played a good game. They came out on top, and we didn’t do a good enough job to win the game.” Penn State first scored after an eightplay, 40-yard drive at the end of the first quarter. Hacke n berg hit fellow freshman tight end Adam Breneman for a 2-yard touchdown and an early PSU lead. Ficken hit the upright with the extra point, so the score at that point was 6-0.

Lions draw poor grades for performance vs. Nebraska By BEN JONES

OFFENSE: C

StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — For much of the Nebraska game things were going Penn State’s way enough that fans and players felt like the Nittany Lions had a chance to win. But mistakes and miscues pile up, and eventually a game that could have been a victory slowly turns into a loss. That was the case Saturday night as Penn State’s errors and inconsistencies piled up just enough so that a struggling Nebraska team could steal the victory in the game’s final stages. It wasn’t all bad, but little details that have plagued Penn State all season came to light again on Saturday.

On the one hand, Penn State’s offense was good enough that the Nittany Lions were always in the game and always able to respond to Nebraska. But on the other hand, Penn State converted only two of 14 third down chances, which limited the Nittany Lions ability to grab control of a game that Nebraska was no more interested in controlling. Zach Zwinak was strong with 35 carries for 149 yards and Christian Hackenberg went 16-33 for 217 yards and two touchdowns. Overall, though, the offense couldn’t put it all together despite some solid individual performances.

PENN STATE’S Allen Robinson (8) and Geno Lewis (7) cannot block the gamewinning field goal during overtime of Saturday’s game with Nebraska.

The good, the bad and the ugly UNIVERSITY PARK — There was plenty of good, bad and ugly to go around from Saturday’s 23-20 overtime loss to Nebraska on Saturday evening at a frigid Beaver Stadium. On Senior Day, the Nittany Lions blew several leads before bowing to the Cornhuskers. What can you say about Nebraska? It has had the Lions’ number lately. Let’s take a closer look at Saturday’s good, bad and ugly. The Good — Zach Zwinak. Make no mistake about it, Zwinak was a pounder on Sat-

urday. On a downright frigid afternoon, Zwinak carried the ball 35 times for 149 yards. Although he didn’t find the end zone, he was a critical piece to the puzzle on Penn State’s scoring drives. With Bill Belton on the shelf, Zwinak came up big. The Bad — Penn State defense. Whenever the Lions got a lead, the PSU defense gave it right back. They couldn’t handle Ameer Abdullah, who rushed 25 times for 147 yards. He broke off a huge 50-yard run and averaged nearly 6 yards per carry. And he made it look

easy. The Ugly — Sam Ficken. Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien needs to audition kickers during the offseason. In today’s college game, there is absolutely no excuse for missing an extra point. That miss changed the shape of the game. There’s also Ficken’s missed tackle on the kickoff return and of course, the shank in overtime that ultimately doomed the Lions. It’s time to find a new kicker, coach.

Lions, from page 19

ing and was for the most part kept from making huge gains. Quarterback Ron Kellogg was solid with 191 yards passing, but seemed to only be a threat to throw for big gains if the defense allowed him to, rather than his throwing ability being good enough to force the issue. Overall, Nebraska’s offense made enough plays to win, but it’s hard to put the blame on Penn State’s defense for holding a talented team to only 20 points over four quarters of play. Some timely turnovers and a goal-line stand help this grade as well. Brandon Bell made his first real appearance for Penn State at linebacker and was impressive for most of the second half.

SPECIAL TEAMS: D

If one or two more drives had been successful, overtime may have never even happened.

DEFENSE: B

Penn State’s defense really played a solid game on Saturday — aside from two plays. A 50-yard run by Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah and a 27-yard touchdown pass were the only two significant plays the Nittany Lion defense gave up all night. Taking the one 50-yard gain out of consideration, Abdullah averaged 4 yards a carry over 24 carries for just under 100 yards rush-

— Chris Morelli

Sam Ficken didn’t get much help with bad snaps and poor holds and he missed a crucial extra point and overtime field goal because of it. Alex Butterworth was blocked once thanks to a poor snap and a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown took all the air out of Penn State’s sails in the second half. Butterworth was strong all night, but he was really the only bright spot on a unit that helped Nebraska more than it helped Penn State. Ficken will get the brunt of the blame from fans, but it was a group effort on Saturday night from Penn State’s special team’s unit.

Defects, from page 19 Penn State was far from done, however. On its next possession, Hackenberg found Jesse James crossing over the middle, threw a strike, and then watched as James sprinted down the left sideline for a 46-yard touchdown. Penn State was ahead for the third time in the game, 20-17. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys (tight ends James, Breneman, and Kyle Carter) all had big catches today,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are good players and big parts of our offense. We will continue to involve them and get them the ball. They are becoming blockers. They are great kids.â&#x20AC;? Ahead now, Penn State was able to force Nebraska into two three-and-outs, but the Lions could not move the ball either. Then, with just under seven minutes to play, Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ameer Abdullah broke free around left end for what looked like a 60-yard touchdown. But Nebraska was flagged on the play, and the Huskers had to settle for a first down on the Penn State 25. Six plays later, on a third-and-goal from the Penn State seven, Kellogg took off for the end zone, but senior linebacker Mike Hull was there to stop him at the two. Nebraska had to settle for the tying field goal, and, ultimately, overtime.

november 27-DeCember 4, 2013

Penn State did advance to the Nebraska 34 on its final drive, but the Huskers stiffened and the Lions had to punt with just over a minute to play. In overtime, Hackenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-and-5 pass intended for Robinson inside the 5-yard line was knocked away and brought out Ficken for a 37-yard try. It was wide. Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smith then ended the game and the Beaver Stadium careers of 17 very special seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, (they have) a special place in Penn State history,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These seniors stuck with this program and university during a very tough time. Everybody needs to remember that. This senior class will go down as just as special as last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors. They could have left; they chose to stay.â&#x20AC;? Those seniors are not completely done just yet. This week Penn State travels to Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisc., to take on the Badgers. The weather doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure to be much warmer, and, in light of the outcome of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, the reception for the Lions will be equally as chilly. Wisconsin is 9-2 this season and is coming off its 10th consecutive victory over Minnesota last Saturday, 20-7. The Badgers only losses this season came at the hands of Arizona State, 32-30, and Ohio State, 31-24.

PENN STATE quarterback Christian Hackenberg gets some pregame throws in prior to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frigid tilt with Nebraska. The Lions lost the game, 23-20, in overtime.

Penn State will have its work cut out, especially after the emotional loss to Nebraska on Senior Day. But Penn State will be ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty special senior class we have here,â&#x20AC;? Breneman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was tough not being able to pull that one out for them, but we still have one more opportunity. We can go get a win in Madison, Wisconsin.

Lions attempting to back up early-season optimism By JOHN PATISHNOCK sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Scanning the preseason and early-season stories surrounding the Penn State men’s basketball team, most of the narratives focused on something along the lines of the Nittany Lions seemingly on the verge of a turnaround season. Maybe that’s exactly what will happen. But we don’t know yet. What I know for sure is that the upbeat prognosis is something of a yearly tradition with the men’s hoops program. Having grown up in the area, I’m familiar with the arc of the typical Penn State men’s basketball campaign. Early optimism gives way to a so-so season before Penn State claims a big-time victory against a highly ranked opponent late in the year to restore those initial upbeat feelings. What this sequence usually leads to is sparse crowds throughout the campaign, despite Penn State playing many home games in the heart of winter when the social options in Happy Valley temporarily dip. I was a freshman when Penn State stunned North Carolina in the Round of 32 in 2001 to advance to the team’s last Sweet 16 appearance. And the NIT championship in 2009 was definitely enjoyable. Throw in an NCAA Tournament appearance and a winning record in 2011 and proof exists that Penn State can be more than just an average team. Is this the year that starts a winning trend? We’ll see. I’ve heard Coach Patrick Chambers speak in-person only a handful of times but everything indicates he’s a high-energy leader with an unlimited amount of passion. Odds are he’s standing a few feet out on the court during any point in the game, imploring his guys to do whatever he deems necessary in that situation. Above all else, he’s a guy who you want to see do well. After Penn State’s defeat of La Salle on Nov. 19, Explorers coach Dr. John Giannini talked of the importance of land-grant universities landing the top in-state players. Typically, he said, those players in Pennsylvania will hail

from around Philadelphia, where Chambers has roots; he graduated from Philadelphia University and served as an assistant at Villanova for a number of years. Giannini said that connection gives Chambers credibility in recruiting, evidenced by D.J. Newbill, one-half of what’s considered one of the best backcourts in the Big Ten. “He has the energy and experience to really make a difference,” Giannini said of Chambers. Penn State sported a 4-1 record heading into Tuesday’s game against Monmouth, with non-conference games against St. John’s and either Georgia Tech or Mississippi, Pittsburgh, Marshall, Duquesne and Princeton before Big Ten play starts on Tuesday, Dec. 31, against Michigan State. If you’re looking for something fun to do on New Year’s Eve and still be home before all the partying starts, check out the game against the Spartans, who vaulted to the top spot in the rankings earlier this month for the first time since 2001. I attended the Penn State-Connecticut women’s battle recently. More than 8,000 fans created an environment that was fun and energetic, a scene that I wish would envelop the Bryce Jordan Center more regularly. Granted, Connecticut was the top-ranked team in the country and the game tipped off on a Sunday at noon, but there’s no good reason why attendance can’t be higher for men’s games; the first three home contests featured an average attendance of 4,554, roughly 30 percent of the Bryce Jordan Center’s capacity. The argument exists that Penn State needs to give more fans a reason to attend. Win games. Create a winning tradition. Schedule marquee opponents. I get that, and those points make sense. Students are ungodly busy, as are many other people who live in the area. Jobs and family responsibilities are priorities, as they should be. But having everyone mix in a couple more visits to the BJC every year sure can’t hurt. After all, nobody ever said fans can’t help start that winning tradition.

Plenty for Penn State football fans to be thankful for By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — For the most part, any given story in the sporting world lasts as long as a game does, or at the most a full season. New drama pops up and new games fill the docket. Everything else is history in a “What have you done lately?” business. So for the average Penn State fan, it’s easy to feel like the NCAA sanction narrative played out long ago. The transfer window has been closed for months, scholarships will be restored far sooner than anticipated, and it seems that the Nittany Lions could be bowling as early as 2014-15. On the surface, Penn State has made it out of the worst of the sanctions and for the most part that is true. As a result, the usual in-season critics rise to the surface of the conversation. No matter how big the obstacle or how fortunate Penn State has been, someone will always be upset. The program is operating in the 90th percentile of all reasonable expectations, with slightly more than 60 “scholarship players,” and some people still aren’t happy. Some of that is the nature of the fan. But some of that is a lack of understanding of how lucky Penn State truly has been since

that fateful day Mark Emmert took his pulpit and handed down judgement on the Penn State football program. In retrospect, while the Nittany Lion faithful scoffed at the idea players would leave town in mass or that Penn State would never win another game as some pundits predicted, in many respects what has actually happened over the past two seasons has been just as unlikely. Some players left, but only a handful of consequence. A few recruits decommitted, but Christian Hackenberg still drove into town knowing full well what he was up against. When the sanctions were handed down, players were supposed to avoid a program with a cloudy future and good recruits would look elsewhere. That didn’t happen. But it could have. On the field, under Bill O’Brien, Penn State has been thoroughly beaten only once. The lopsided defeat to Ohio State earlier this season was not a unique occurrence, though, for a Buckeye team hoping to work their way into the national title game. So in terms of getting outplayed for a full 60 minutes by a bad team, that has yet to happen. Fans, Page 25

Penn State men roll past Longwood By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Brandon Taylor scored a career high 25 points and the Nittany Lions overcame a turnover-filled first half en route to a 93-67 victory over Longwood Sunday afternoon. Taylor went 5-of-9 from three and showed some nice moves near the basket as Penn State improved to 4-1 on the year. Penn State rushed out to a 7-0 lead in the early going, but some hot shooting by Longwood and nine first half turnovers by the Nittany Lions let the Lancers back into the game. Penn State would take a 37-27 lead into the half, despite some early

mistakes. The second half was a very different story, as Penn State came running out of the gates en route to a 56 point second half. DJ Newbill was exceptional for the Nittany Lions, pulling down 9 rebounds, dishing out 7 assists and scoring 23 points. Ross Travis added an early double-double to the box score, with 13 rebounds and 11 points to his name less than halfway though the second half. The Nittany Lions committed only two turnovers in the second half of the game. Penn State shot 57 percent from the field and broke the 80 point margin for the third time in four games.

BRANDON TAYLOR, center, shown here in a game earlier this season, led the Nittany Lions with 25 points in a 93-67 win over Longwood on Sunday.

Quick-fire reaction, rankings not needed in football Within minutes of the Denver Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 17 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the teams were a combined 17-1 entering the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I saw the NBC Sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Twitter account ask a question. It was simple and straightforward: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give us your #RapidReaction: Are the #Broncos the best team in the NFL?â&#x20AC;? Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the minority with this thinking, but hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my thought: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who cares?â&#x20AC;? Before I get to the crux of my argument, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s examine this question from a purely analytical perspective. At the time, the DenJohn Patishnock ver Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next two covers Penn State opponents were the athletics for the New England Patriots Centre County and those same Chiefs, Gazette. Email teams who ended that him at sports@ centrecounty weekend with a comgazette.com. bined record of 16-4. Even if you thought the Broncos were the best team in the NFL at that time, what did it mean? Nothing, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what. But more to the point, when did everything in sports have to be ranked and cataloged? I remember when people said things like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a good game.â&#x20AC;? Not anymore. Now, people flock to social media sites to rank their personal experience against the personal experiences of fans across the country. It just seems like overkill.

JOHN PATISHNOCK

Preseason rankings and mid-season polls that project where teams will end the season both make sense. But weekly, such questions seem more like desperate attempts for attention. Additionally, I understand the concept of ranking the best games of all time, or the best rivalries. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s validity to seeing what games and players stand the test of time. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gross oversaturation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;rapid reactionâ&#x20AC;? questions. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not overlook that it seems you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a working journalist or writer covering sports in America without your own weekly power rankings. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how accurate these rankings are because they change every week. It seems itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important to accumulate followers or responses on social media sites than to actually know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. Within the first 12 hours of posing that question, all of one person responded to the NBC Sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; account. The person said that the Broncos are the best team in the regular season, but that Peyton Manning â&#x20AC;&#x153;has to prove he can do it in January and February.â&#x20AC;? Yes, Peyton Manning, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won a Super Bowl has to prove to an anonymous poster on Twitter that he can play well in the playoffs. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what continues to drive Peyton Manning. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to appear like a cantankerous writer. I know plenty of people who fit that description and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the ever-growing obsession many people harbor about wanting to dissect every discernible aspect of the game within seconds of it happening. Me? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m content to simply watch the games and enjoy myself.

PERFECT SEASON

Hackenberg named freshman of the week By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — For the fourth time this season, Nittany Lion quarterback Christian Hackenberg has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week. This time, Hackenberg was coming off of a 23-20 overtime loss to Nebraska in which he threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score. In total, Hackenberg accounted for all three of Penn State’s touchdowns on Saturday. Hackenberg has started every game this season and his four Big Ten Freshman of the Week selections are the most for a conference player since 2010. Hackenberg shares this week’s honor with Indiana defensive tackle Ralphael Green III. With his eighth 200-yard passing game now in the books, Hackenberg is now in a tie for third place on the Penn State single season list with Daryll Clark (2009), trailing only Kerry Collins, with 10 in 1994 and Matt McGloin, with 11 in 2012. Fans, from page 1 In total, facing very real threats and the very real danger of a program collapsing, Penn State has been competitive in all but one game in the past two seasons. In 22 out of the last 23 contests, the Nittany Lions could exit feeling like on a better day they could have won in the nine of 23 times Penn State failed to do so thus far. When the sanctions were handed down, Penn State wasn’t supposed to even be in games. The Nittany Lions would enter with limited talent and limited depth, losing far more often than winning. Depth and talent have been depleted, but Penn State hasn’t become an easy win. But it could have. Today, Penn State sits at 6-5 with a fairly decent chance of ending the season at 6-6. Fourteen wins and 10 losses since Bill O’Brien arrived in town. Not a mark usually accepted during normal circumstances, but a mark that could be far worse and a mark that could see each of those losses being far more lopsided. Critics have their place. O’Brien and his staff have not coached flawlessly and players — even on a roster riddled with walk-ons in important roles — have not always played up to their collective abilities. In an ironic twist, O’Brien’s success in the face of unprecedented odds has allowed for fans to be critical of his coaching and critical of players’ individual performances. Instead of facing each game as a challenge and a grind, each game is seen as a chance to win and a failure to do so frustrates fans. This is the double-edged sword of success in tough times, fair or not. But at the end of the day, regardless how many wins or losses have accumulated over the past two seasons, the light is visible at the end of the tunnel and the Penn State football program is still standing on two feet, a fact that will impact the future of the program far longer than any single loss over the past 23 games or over the next 25. When the sanctions were handed down, that wasn’t supposed to happen. But it did. And that’s something fans can be thankful for.

Munchak bests McGloin in battle of PSU alums By MARK EMMONS The Associated Press

OAKLAND — In the end, it was a shame that either one of Scranton’s favorite sons had to lose. Matt McGloin, the Oakland quarterback from West Scranton, had written another chapter to his unlikely and magical rise in the NFL with a picture-perfect, 27yard touchdown pass that put the Raiders ahead with 6:10 remaining Sunday at O.co Coliseum. But it was Mike Munchak, the Scranton Central product and coach of Tennessee, who came away the winner as his Titans rallied to beat the Raiders, 23-19, on Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 10-yard scoring pass to Kendall Wright with just 10 seconds remaining. What had started slowly as a field-goalkicking exhibition, finished with wild, edge-of-the-seat drama. When McGloin was unable to muster up a miracle in the final two plays, all he could do was weave through the postgame handshakes as he looked for Munchak. When he found him, two men from Scranton embraced in a quick hug at midfield. “I just wanted to say congratulations, wish him luck, and he wanted to do the same thing,” said McGloin, the undrafted rookie who was making only his second NFL start and now appears to have staked his claim as the Raiders’ starting quarterback. “It was good to see him, and I know there were a lot of people back in Scranton paying attention.” For his part, Munchak sounded like he was thankful for escaping this encounter against McGloin with the victory. “He was a couple of seconds away from beating us,” said Munchak, the third-year Titans coach who already is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for his 12 years as a star offensive lineman. “He’s such a great example of a guy who handles himself so well and continues to do things that nobody expected. “I’m glad I got to wish him well.” The Scranton connection received so much play in the Bay Area in the preceding days that the game even had the unofficial title of the “Electric City Bowl” — along with a newly made victory bell trophy. But that piece of hardware didn’t make it to Oakland for the game. And there was something much more tangible at stake

TENNESSEE HEAD COACH Mike Munchak congratulates Oakland quarterback Matt McGloin following their game in Oakland on Sunday. Both Munchak and McGloin played at Penn State. Sunday than just Scranton bragging rights. The victory put the Titans (5-6) back in the thick of the AFC wild card playoff berth hunt. Tennessee came into Sunday stumbling, having lost five of its previous six games, and putting Munchak on the coaching hot seat. Meanwhile, the inability to hold the late lead was another example that the Raiders (4-7) still are deep in a rebuilding process. But they may very well have answered the most important question, which is the identity of the team’s quarterback. When asked afterward if McGloin had

earned another start, Raiders Coach Dennis Allen answered succinctly: “Yes.” On the day, McGloin completed 19 of 32 attempts for 260 yards with one touchdown and an interception. Not bad for a guy who started the season fourth on the Oakland depth chart. But when Matt Flynn, who arrived in the off-season in a trade from the Seattle Seahawks, couldn’t nail down the job, he was replaced by former Ohio State star Terrelle Pryor, and then later released. After a strong start, Pryor began to struggle — completing just 50.8 percent of his passes with eight interceptions and one touchdown in his last four games — before suffering a sprained knee on Nov. 3. That opened the door for McGloin, who was largely unknown outside of Pennsylvania. That began to change after his threetouchdown performance in a 28-23 victory over the Houston Texans the previous weekend, which earned him Sunday’s start in front of the Silver-and-Black faithful. But even though Oakland held a 9-6 lead at halftime, McGloin had struggled mightily as Munchak crafted a game plan based on blitzing the rookie early and often. The result was hurried throws, four deflected passes and just eight completions in 17 attempts for 105 yards. Even worse was an ill-advised throw that was intercepted by Tennessee’s Zach Brown at the Oakland 11-yard line — which was converted into a short field goal. The second half, though, McGloin was a

different quarterback. “We made some changes and I was more comfortable,” he said. “I was able to settle in and get more relaxed. I had a better understanding of what they were doing defensively.” He looked like a veteran when, midway through the fourth quarter and with Oakland losing 16-12, he smartly led the Raiders 75 yards down the field, completing all four of his passes. The touchdown toss, a ball lofted high to fullback Marcel Reece, off his back foot and while getting hit by Titan defenders, was a thing of beauty. “That was a great, great throw by him,” Munchak said. “We were on a blitz and all over him. That was a monster play for them.” But it didn’t last. It was Fitzpatrick’s turn for heroics. He engineered a 14-play, 80-yard drive, completing eight of 10 passes. The last one — the touchdown to Wright — quieted the raucous Oakland crowd. In their locker rooms, both Munchak and McGloin said they were well aware of how important this afternoon was back in their hometown. But each man also said he never thought about it once while the game was being played. “You can’t think about stuff like that when you’re out there,” McGloin said. “But it was great that people back home really follow their players and coaches so closely. We take pride in that.”

Mounties looking to bounce back By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

PHILIPSBURG — A closer look at the 2013-14 Philipsburg-Osceola High School boys’ basketball team: Coach — Dave McKnight. 2012-13 Record — 5-16 Key losses — “We lost five seniors, basically all my starters,” McKnight said. “They will be missed. That was a strong group of kids, a nice group of kids. They stuck together, and they played a lot of basketball for us.” Returning letter winners — Guard Trentin Harrington, guard Collin Maurer and forward Lewis Jones. “They all lettered for us last year, and now they have to build their own identity and who they are going to be and what kind of team they’re going to be,” McKnight said. Outlook — Experience is the big question mark for the Mounties. With the loss of five starters from last season, and just three lettermen returning, the team will have to learn to play together on the fly. “I think we’re athletic,” McKnight said. “I think we can match up with a lot of teams that we play. It’s a matter of execution and getting a lot of game experience in a hurry. “(Football quarterback) Curtis Matsko

came out again. He was out as a sophomore but didn’t play last year, so that will give us some nice senior leadership and a strong presence inside. It’s a new season and a new challenge. We’ll do with it what we can.” Still, with a tough early schedule, the Mounties will need to come together quickly. “They need time,” McKnight said, “playing time. A guy like Dan Fowler came out for the first time, and he is a good athlete, but he needs to work on his basketball skills. But he’s working. And that’s what I like, and he’s also got some size and presence inside. “We need to get into the scrimmages and find out where we are. I’m not sure. We have some younger kids who I think can contribute, but we don’t know because they haven’t been here yet. They played junior high last year, so we’ll see how they turn out this year.” McKnight, however, is not planning to give up his up-tempo style of play. “I don’t really like playing zone defenses because we tend to stand around, so we work exclusively on man-to-man principles. Offensively, we run a system, read and react, and I don’t like to pull them back and make them afraid to shoot. I want them to make plays, and if we string enough together, that equates to victory. We have a couple of nice shooters who

PHILIPSBURG — A closer look at the 2013-14 Philipsburg-Osceola girls’ basketball team: Coach — Doug Myers 2012-13 record — 10-12, lost to Tyrone in District 6 playoffs. Key loss — Briana Rusnak. Returning letter winners — Cheyenne Bone, Abby Showers, Haylee Hayward, Katie Meersand and Alyssa Myers. Outlook — The loss of Rusnak to graduation will hurt the Mounties because she was such a strong leader and inside presence for P-O. “She was a tremendous post player,” Myers said. “And a great leader, hustled, rebounded, we are going to miss her a lot.” But P-O does return five letter winners from last season, including two seniors, Katie Meersand and Alyssa Myers, and

three starters, Abby Showers, Haylee Hayward and Myers. The problem for the Mounties is that none of them will be able to replace the size of Rusnak in the middle, which will change the type of game P-O will play this season. “We have pretty good speed,” Myers said, “and we’re quick. We are not real big, but we have kids who are in the third year with our program. We have some kids who have started a lot of basketball games. Abby started since she came here as a freshman. Haylee played just about every minute last year, and Alyssa is in her second year as a starter. So I think that will be an advantage for us — we have real good ball handlers. “Right now, we are really working on checking out so we have a chance to rebound. We’re really not big. I think our tallest girl is 5-5, 5-6. So we are worried Lady Mounties, Page 30

Mounties hope to pin down successful season By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

PHILIPSBURG — A closer look at the 2013-14 Philipsburg-Osceola High School wrestling team: Coach — Tim McCamley 2012-13 record — 9-7, 7 regional qualifiers. Key losses — Jay Prentiss, Brian Evans, Andrew Greenwalt and Justin Millard. Returning letter winners — Dallas Kephart, Chris Thompson, Nathan Quick, Caleb Shively, Scott Yarger, Mason Pryde, Roger Kephart, Kaleb Guy, Dennis Lumadue, Nick Gray and Dustin Shuey Outlook — Things are looking up for the Mountie wrestling team. With 14 seniors, 11 lettermen, and four regional qualifiers returning, P-O is looking to improve on last season’s 9-7 record. “We have a lot of good seniors,” McCamley said, “and senior leadership will be one of our strengths. I think that there are 14 seniors in the room, and on the mat right now we are practicing 26 kids.” With those numbers and that kind of leadership, McCamley is looking to have a very balanced team and be especially strong in the upper weight classes. “We are going to be strong in the upper weights,” he said. “We have some real good light weights, too, but where we are going to be noticed is in the upper weights. We have some powerful middle weights as well, so we should have a well balanced team. “Our kids are aggressive. I would rather see them make

Our kids go after the win. Not so much pinners, but really we should be strong on our feet this year. We also have some good riders, and conditioning plays a big part. We’re usually in pretty good shape.” Experienced or not, early in the season McCamley is taking his team back to the fundamentals. “We’re back to basics,” he said. “We’re working hard on fundamental things, things that we can overlook once in a while — basic shots, little flaws in our penetration, or some blocks. But Lady Mounties, from page 29 about them getting one shot and then it’s our ball. “We are going to try to beat them down the court and get some layups. Do some good screening. Get some kids some open shots and put kids in position so that when we do miss a shot, they are at least in the area to get a rebound.” Another concern for the Mounties could be the early-season schedule.

staying aggressive.” Overall, McCamley is very optimistic about this team. “This is a good team to coach,” he said. “This is going to be a good year if we can stay healthy. We have to stay away from the injuries, and we have to get them into the right weight classes, which is always a problem.” Circle these dates — Mountaineer Tournament (Dec. 7); at Bellefonte (Dec. 10); vs. Chestnut Ridge (Dec. 12); at Central Mountain (Dec. 19); Conestoga Valley Tournament (Dec. 27-28).

the teams in our league will be pretty comparable. We may have a league champion with five or six losses. So I just think that any night, anybody can beat anybody. It will be a balanced league. “We are not going to change a lot. We will hustle and play as hard as we can.” Circle these dates — At DuBois (Dec. 9); at Penns Valley (Dec. 11); vs Tyrone (Dec. 13); at Bellefonte (Dec. 18); at Bald Eagle Area (Dec. 20).

P-O plays six of its first eight games on the road, with its only home games being against Tyrone and Penn Cambria. “We actually did really well on the road last year,” Myers said. “We beat Penns Valley over there, and DuBois and Central at their school. We beat Clearfield there on Senior Night. So I told the kids and I’m trying to convince them that we can play on the road and do really well. “I think that more than past years,

Schulman elected to lead directors’ union From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Susan H. Schulman has been elected to serve as executive board president of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, the national labor union representing professional stage directors and choreographers. The results of SDC’s recent executive board elections were announced Nov. 18 at the annual membership meeting. Schulman is a graduate of the Yale Drama School, Hofstra University and New York’s famed High School of Performing Arts. She heads the M.F.A Directing Program at Penn State. “For over 20 years SDC has been there to support and to inspire me. It is my privilege to serve as president in this tradition of community while continuing to empower and protect professional stage directors and choreographers,” said Schulman. A Tony-nominated director, Schulman was first elected to the SDC board in 1990, serving as executive vice president from 1992-1996. During her tenure she co-chaired Broadway negoti-

ations multiple times and chairs the union’s Committee on International Artists. Her Broadway credits include the Tony Award-winning musical “The Secret Garden,” as well as its highly successful national tour (Drama Desk nomination), the revival of “Sweeney Todd” at the Circle in the Square (Tony Award nomination), the revival of “The Sound of Music” (Tony nomination Outstanding Revival), and “Little Women,” the musical and its recent national tour. For her direction of the highlyacclaimed “Violet” (which received The New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical), Schulman was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Director. She received an Obie Award for directing Sondheim and Furth’s musical “Merrily We Roll Along” at the York Theatre. Her work can be seen regularly at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada. She just returned from Denmark, where she directed a new musical composed by John Bucchino, and is currently working on “Stardust Road,” the music of Hoagy B. Carmichael, which she conceived and is directing.

DIRECTOR SUSAN H. SCHULMAN chatted with actors Emma Stratton, left, and Kevin Toniazzo-Naughton during rehearsal for the Penn State Centre Stage production of “Sweeney Todd” recently. Schulman has been elected to serve as executive board president of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.

Students work with local company on marketing plan From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — A Penn State Smeal College of Business marketing class led by Carolyn Todd, instructor in marketing, got a real-world perspective on product development and marketing during a recent visit from Scott Diminick, a marketing manager for Tipton, Pa.-based company New Pig. Diminick also charged the class with its semester-long project: developing a marketing plan for a recent New Pig product designed to absorb liquid waste on operating room floors as a result of arthroscopic surgery. During his visit, Diminick talked about the product and its development process, giving students a first-hand look at the level of research and information a com-

pany must have as it works to move into a new market. He also talked about issues that are unique to business-to-business marketing, such as the challenges of distribution and learning about who makes the buying decisions in different kinds of markets. “This is a great opportunity for students to hear about the whole process, from market research to product development and marketing communications,” said Todd. “All these pieces play a role in business-to-business marketing, and I think projects like these give students a better understanding of how marketing fits into the business as a whole.” Over the course of the semester, students will analyze a case study — including details on New Pig’s current customer base, opportunities in the health care in-

dustry, target market size and buying behavior, and distribution — and do their own further research to develop marketing recommendations. “As marketing methods continue to evolve toward digital communication, it will be interesting to learn how the students might conceive a marketing plan that utilizes methods such as social networking or other new ways to get your message to potential customers,” Diminick said. At the end of the semester, Diminick will return to the classroom to view presentations from the students on their marketing plans, which will include a detailed plan for trade show participation and a direct mail piece. “Connections like the one we have with New Pig really enhance what we’re able to do in the classroom,” said Todd.

“There is so much value in showing our students how marketing really functions in the workplace, and I hope that New Pig gets value from our students’ ideas as well.” Smeal is known for its strength in business-to-business marketing, both in education and research. The Institute for the Study of Business Markets is a center of excellence at the college that networks business-to-business researchers, educators and practitioners in companies and universities throughout the world. Founded in 1983, the ISBM’s mission is to expand research and teaching in business-to-business marketing and sales in academia and improve the practice of business-to-business marketing and sales in industry.

Holiday marketing: Creative ways to make your season merry With six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas than last year, retailers moved into full holiday marketing mode earlier than ever. The creative onslaught of promotions, from national businesses to consumer companies, started before Halloween. How can you and your company benefit from the holiday marketing strategies of big retailers? n Develop seasonal product offerings: If Pringles can feature seasons flavors of its canned chips, such as the holiday-inspired White Chocolate Peppermint Crisps, why can’t you create a themed product or service? It doesn’t have to take a huge investment. Make minor tweaks and promote it as a holiday or New Year’s offering. n Repackage your look and feel: Kraft added a holiday twist to its iconic mac and cheese with winter shapes that look like candy canes, snowflakes and stockings. Your repackage won’t David M. Mastobe as dramatic, but the end result vich is president of MASSolutions Inc. could be the same: a holiday buzz and For more increased sales. information, go n Offer special holiday pricing: to www.mas Walmart started offering Black Friday solutions.biz. and Cyber Monday deals right after Halloween. Target’s Holiday Price Match program matches any price from Amazon.com, Walmart.com, ToysRUs.com and BabiesRUs.com for qualifying items. Build your holiday price promotion and tell your prospects and customers about it. n Create memorable promotions: Starbucks launched a holiday campaign that includes seasonal beverages in red cups. Nothing signals the holidays are just around the corner like the return of Starbucks Red Cups — this is the company’s mantra in public relations and advertising messages. You won’t have the budget or audience that Starbucks does, but you can still create a holiday promotion to reach your target audience. n Reach captive holiday audiences: The National Basketball Association (NBA) realized a void in holiday sports programming existed and took advantage of it. The Christmas Day broadcast is the first nationally televised game of the season and showcases the NBA’s biggest stars. Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose can all be in our homes for the holiday. Think of how your message can reach your target markets during the holiday season. Leverage that captive audience to change your bottom line. Whether you’re a business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consumer (B2C) company that markets locally, regionally or nationally, you can make your holiday season merry with a creative integrated marketing approach.
