Giffords, Kelly inspire audience By MARJORIE S. MILLER mmiller@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — As a team that’s faced and pushed through difficult and devastating obstacles, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and husband, retired NASA astronaut and U.S. Navy Captain Mark Kelly, shared their personal story Monday night at Eisenhower Auditorium about plans, goals and the human spirit. Part of the Penn State Student Programming Association’s Distinguished Speaker Series, Kelly and Giffords each took time to speak to the audience about the challenges they’ve encountered, how they overcame them, and their visions for the future. “It’s been a long, hard haul but I’m getting better,” Giffords said to a cheering crowd of students, faculty and community members. Giffords said her recovery involves physical therapy, speech therapy and yoga. Her spirit remains strong, she explained, and she continues to work to make the world a better place, and encourages those in the audience to do the same. “Be bold, be courageous and be your

best,” she said. Kelly’s presentation, in which he shared some of Giffords’ life story and her political work, involved his experiences as a NASA space shuttle pilot and a naval aviator during the Gulf War, and what he was doing the GABRIELLE moment he heard his GIFFORDS wife had been shot. As a child growing up in New Jersey in the 1970s, Kelly said his mother wanted to become what would be one of the first and only female police officers at that time. One of the tests she had to pass was to climb over a more than 7-foot wall. To prepare the naturally short woman for the challenge, Kelly’s father built a wall in their backyard, and Kelly’s mother practiced every day for months. Not only was she able to pass the test, she climbed over the wall in record time, Kelly said. Watching his mother set her mind to a challenge and then overcome it was one

STATE COLLEGE — A new partnership between the borough of State College and Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, allows those in need of a car to now have wheels only when they need them. Five vehicles including a Ford Focus, Ford Escape, Nissan Sentra, Toyota Prius and Honda Civic are available for short-term rentals. The cars can be found at the Beaver garage, the Beaver lot and McAllister Deck. Area residents can join Zipcar for $60, with vehicle rates starting at $7.50 per hour and $69 per day. Penn State students have the opportunity to join the car sharing network for just $25 plus vehicle rates. Gas, insurance, a reserved parking spot in the car’s garage or lot location and 180 miles of driving are included in these rates. Cars may be rented for a few hours or a few days at a time and are available on-demand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week to Penn State students ages 18 and older and members of the local community ages 21 and older. Like many other college towns, State College is known for alternative methods of transportation. It is common for locals and students alike to ride public transportation, bikes or simple walk to run errands or to attend work or class. Sometime though, the convenience of a car is necessary.

KEY TO THE FUTURE: Centre County commissioner Steve Dershem, left, turns over a ceremonial key to Centre Care president Betsy Boyer on Nov. 1.

County turns over key to Centre Crest By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

BELLEFONTE — It’s official. Centre County exited the nursing home business on Nov. 1, as it turned over operations of Centre Crest to the Centre Care nonprofit board. County commissioners Steve Dershem, Chris Exarchos and Michael Pipe attended a ceremony at the facility in which they handed over a ceremonial key to Centre Care president Betsy Boyer. According to Dershem, the county believes that by turning over operations to Centre Care, it will increase the quality of care at the facility. “I think what we’re looking at here in Centre County, is the opportunity to improve the care at Centre Crest. We can take the care and community involvement to the next level,” Dershem explained. “We’ve got a fantastic board, a fantastic operating commit-

tee. Everything considered, I’m very enthusiastic about the future of this facility and all it has to offer.” Centre County commissioners voted 2-1 to transition the facility to a nonprofit. Operating costs simply became too large for the county. Pipe originally voted against the transfer. However, at the ceremony, he talked about the history of Centre Crest and looked toward the future. He said he believes the future of the facility is bright. “There’s a cornerstone in the front of the building from 1939, so it’s been here almost 75 years,” Pipe said. “Looking back through some of the history of the facility, there’s a new event that happens about every 20 years. It might be a new wing that’s been added or new beds that have been added. It’s been about 20 years Centre Crest, Page 5 Arts & Entertainment 23, 24 What’s Happening .... 25, 26

STATE COLLEGE — Discovery Space in downtown State College was recently transformed into an interactive museum of Marie Curie’s work for Radium Curie-Osity, a series of exhibits and experiments related to the late scientist’s work. Geared towards children of all ages, the event Nov. 1 was hosted by Discovery Space and the AAUW State College branch, and featured a variety of Penn State student groups that provided science demonstrations throughout the facility. The event was part of a celebration of Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM and the AAUW’s Discovery, Page 4

STATE COLLEGE — The Owner of Jamaica Junction was sentenced to serve 111/2 to 23-1/2 months in the Centre County Correctional Facility for selling synthetic marijuana from his store. Last September, Michael Hultberg pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver and possession of paraphernalia with intent to deliver. In addition to the jail sentence Hultberg will pay a $500 fine and will give up all contraband seized by police. Investigators reportedly confiscated thousands of devices used to ingest illicit drugs from Hultberg’s store, along with more than 3,000 packages of synthetic marijuana. According to prosecutors, police made numerous purchases of synthetic marijuana at Hultberg’s store on Pugh Street. Investigators claim Hultberg had about 5 pounds of synthetic drugs delivered to Jamaica Junction every week. The district attorney’s office says Hultberg was selling synthetic marijuana under

“a thinly veiled ruse of an aromatherapy product.” The investigation was triggered after police saw an increase in crimes linked to bath salts and synthetic marijuana, according to reports. There were reports of people from outside Centre County driving here to make

purchases. Those drugs were eventually banned by the state Legislature. In a news release, District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said drug pushers masquerading as businesspeople will not be tolerated. “Those who seek profit at the expense of addicts, children, and our communities’ quality of life will find no sanctuary among the honest, responsible businesses that help make Centre County the great place it is,” she said.

Two years after Sandusky, much remains unsettled By ADAM LIDGETT StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — It’s been two years since that fateful Nov. 5 when former Penn State defensive coordinator and founder of the The Second Mile charity, Jerry Sandusky, was arrested on charges of abusing young boys he met through that very charity. There has already been one criminal trial, a firing of a Penn State icon and multiple lawsuits. Two years later, the scandal is still very much a part of the fabric of life in Happy Valley. Here are some of the striking events from the past 24 months: Nov. 5, 2011 — Sandusky is arraigned on 40 counts of child sex abuse. He is released on $100,000 bail. Nov. 7, 2011 — Former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Penn State Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz are arraigned on charges of perjury and failure to report. Both men are accused of lying to the grand jury and not telling police about a report that Sandusky abused a child. Nov. 9, 2011 — Penn State President Graham Spanier and longtime head football Coach Joe Paterno are both fired from the university by the Penn State Board of Trustees. Penn State students riot in the streets as a result of the news that Paterno is fired. Nov. 14, 2011 — Sandusky is interviewed by Bob Costas on NBC News’ “Rock Center.� Sandusky hesitates when Costas asks him if he is sexually attracted to young boys. Sandusky eventually says he is not. Nov. 18, 2011 — The NCAA announces it will investigate the Penn State Athletics Program. Dec. 7, 2011 — Sandusky is arrested again after two more men, “Victim 9� and “Victim 10,� say they were abused by the former assistant coach. Jan. 22, 2012 — Paterno passes away in State College after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

June 11, 2012 — Sandusky’s criminal trial starts. June 22, 2012 — Sandusky is convicted on 45 out of 48 counts of child sex abuse. July 12, 2012 — Louis Freeh releases his report on his investigation into whether certain Penn State administrators could have done more to stop Sandusky. Paterno, Spanier, Curley and Schultz are all heavily implicated in the report. July 23, 2012 — NCAA imposes sanctions against Penn State as a result of the Sandusky scandal. The sanctions originally included a post-season play ban, scholarship reductions, a $60 million fine and a vacation of 111 wins. Aug. 9, 2012 — The Second Mile asks to distribute its assets. Sept. 4, 2012 — A request by The Second Mile to halt the transfer of assets is granted to provide support for those who say Sandusky abused them. Oct. 2, 2012 — Former assistant football Coach Mike McQueary sues Penn State, saying he wants compensation for what he considers to be the irreparable damage done to his reputation. McQueary testifies that he witnessed Sandusky in the Lasch Football Building locker room shower with a young boy on Feb. 1, 2001. Oct. 9, 2012 — Sandusky is sentenced to serve 30 to 60 years in prison. Nov. 1, 2012 — Spanier is charged for first time by the state attorney general. Curley and Schultz receive three new charges.

Jake Corman introduces a bill in the general assembly requiring that the $60 million fine Penn State has to pay due to NCAA sanctions be spent in Pennsylvania. Feb. 21, 2013 — Sandusky files to appeal his case to the state Superior Court. May 30, 2013 — The Paterno family, along with multiple members of the Penn State Board of Trustees and former Nittany Lion football players, file suit against the NCAA in attempt to get the sanctions

State College mayor wins re-election STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As expected, Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elections didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate much interest with less than 18 percent of Centre County voters going to the polls, but nevertheless, a number of key races were decided. The battle for the State College mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office was one of the higher profile races. Incumbent Elizabeth Goreham, a Democrat, beat out challenger Ron Madrid, a Republican, with about 61 percent of the popular vote. Of the win, Goreham says she is excited to be able to represent the town for at least another term. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to hug every voter in State College,â&#x20AC;? Goreham joked Tuesday night reacting to her win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to help State College fulfill its own potential. I want to give voice to the importance of the town and to make this town open to entrepreneurial ideas and businesses.â&#x20AC;? Goreham said she believes she won because she was been able to introduce herself to the people of State College during her last term, and that she is on the same page with most residents. Of Madrid, Goreham said he ran a tough campaign, and that his campaign made her nervous. StateCollege.com attempted to reach Madrid multiple times Tuesday night without success. Another contested municipal race was for the three open seats on the State College Borough Council. A total of four people ran. Tom Daubert, who had cross-filed, who

AIDEN AND MORGAN SNELICK listen intently as Penn State graduate student Jordan Lerach talks about electricity and battery power. Discovery, from page 1 connection to Marie Curie and radium, which goes back to 1920, according to the AAUW. Kristin Dreyer, STEM co-chair and a member of the AAUW, said there were seven stations children got to visit, and each participant received a passport for the stations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been pretty busy since one oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock,â&#x20AC;? she said about the crowd. The Penn State student groups, which were both graduate and undergraduate groups, included the American Nuclear Society, Graduate Women in Science, Physics & Astronomy for Women, the Association of Women Geoscientists, Science LionPride, Out in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, and PSU Women in Nuclear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invited the student groups to participate,â&#x20AC;? Dreyer said. Candace Davidson, a member of the STEM committee, said some of the stations focused on imaging inside the body, as well as radioactivity. Curie took X-ray machines to hospitals during the war, she explained, and also coined the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;radioactivity.â&#x20AC;? Davidson said providing hands-on exhibits really helped the children get more individual attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely more involving,â&#x20AC;? she said. One of the other stations included a dark room in which participants could learn about cloud chambers through viewing tracks of radiation trails, and another focused on UV lights through glowing rocks, Davidson said. Additionally, an LED room displayed the execution of electrons. Megan Doerzbacher, a senior mechanical and nuclear engineering student, said her station focused on using Geiger counters to detect radioactivity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool to see them excited about

something,â&#x20AC;? she said, estimating about 25 children had been to her station so far. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Explaining the experiment) helps get out the word (that) nuclear (power) is actually not that dangerous.â&#x20AC;? Jesse Robbins, a member of Graduate Women in Science, said her demonstration spotlighted circuitry and the teaching of electricity and circuits. The activity involved connecting wires from a light bulb to a battery in order to electrify a pickle, she said. Running a current through the pickle allows it to â&#x20AC;&#x153;glow like a light bulb,â&#x20AC;? Robbins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids love circuitry,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really for fun for them â&#x20AC;Ś like solving a puzzle.â&#x20AC;? However, the reactions to the electrified pickle varied, she said, from â&#x20AC;&#x153;coolâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;gross.â&#x20AC;? Katie Brumberg, of Port Matilda, brought her three kids to Discovery Space Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They love it here,â&#x20AC;? she said. One of her children was old enough to attend the Curie exhibits, and enjoyed the Geiger counter station to test out the elements, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It appeals to kids of all ages,â&#x20AC;? Brumberg said about Discovery Space. She said the facility opens kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eyes to new opportunities and provides learning experiences they may not be exposed to in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a) great enhancement to everyday learning,â&#x20AC;? she said. Discovery Space is located on Foster Avenue. For more information visit www. mydiscoveryspace.org. The AAUW was founded in 1881 and is a nationwide grassroots organization of about 165,000 members. Its mission is to advance equality for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. For more information about the State College branch visit aauwstatecollege.org.

Other top vote earners included Theresa Lafer, a Democrat, with about 27 percent and Evan Myers, a Democrat, with about 28 percent. Republican Richard Garis lost with only 15 percent. There were four open spots on the State College School Board, and only four people running. Board members David Hutchinson, Penni Fishbaine and Jim Leous will be serving with newcomer Scott Fozard. All four received nearly an equal percentage of the popular vote. Some races went completely uncontested. Stacy Parks Miller will continue to serve as Centre County District Attorney, while Carmine Prestia and Leslie Dutchcot will continue to serve as Magisterial District Judges. Steven Lachman beat Susan Bardo for Magisterial District Judge. Lachman received 57 percent of the vote. In the race for Jury Commissioner, Hope Miller bested Ruth Luse with nearly 53 percent of the vote. Some township supervisor positions were also voted on Tuesday night. Patton Township will see Elliot Abrams and George Downsbrough, Jr. as their supervisors, while College Township will have L. Eric Bernier and Lynn Herman. Janet Whitaker and Steve Miller won for Ferguson Township At Large Supervisors. In Harris Township Christopher Lee was elected Supervisor over Franklin Harden in a close race. Carla Stilson was also voted into a twoyear interim position on the College Township Council.

This is a landmark day.” Although he originally wanted to keep the facility in county hands, he believes the pieces are in place for a smooth transition from county-owned to nonprofit. It will continue to work with the management company, Complete HealthCare Resources. “The nine people who are on the board are very strong, capable individuals. They’re committed to Centre Crest. I’m very optimistic. Even though it wasn’t my first decision to go to a nonprofit, it’s the future, we’ve go to go in that direction and be positive about it,” Pipe said. The nine-member community board was formed in June. Just five months later, Centre Care takes over. Centre Care will continue to work with management company Complete HealthCare Resources, according to Boyer. As she posed for photos with the ceremonial key, Boyer said she’s excited to take the reins of the facility. “I’m very excited. It’s a great opportunity for us to move forward now and make this Centre Care’s facility,” she said. “We’ll continue to do what’s already been started. It’s a good start in getting where we need to be to make the staff and the residents here have the home and the life they should have.” According to Boyer, all of the employees at Centre Crest are onboard with the changes, so the transition should be a smooth one. “That’s an incredible feeling,” Boyer said. “I’ve been here for about 10 years. During that time, I saw a decline in morale. To have nurses come up to me and give me smiles and hugs … it’s incredible. It makes it everything worth it.” The road to Centre Crest becoming a nonprofit was not an easy one. As Boyer stood outside the main entrance, she talked about a feeling of relief and excitement as the facility begins a new chapter in its rich history. “It’s surreal. We all walked in here today going, ‘wow, this is really it.’ We’ve gone through all of the processes — lots and lots of papers signed, lots of reading and lots to learning. Now, to be able to move forward and do what needs to be done is wonderful,” she said. According to Boyer, she and other members of the board are in the facility at least once a week to examine resident and staff needs. In addition to Boyer, the board is composed of Larry Bickford (vice president), Carl Raup (treasurer), Steven E. Brown, Richard J. Wisniewski, Alfred Jones, Jr., Connie W. Corl, Sally Walker and William H. Rockey. The county still owns the facility. However, it will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operation. According to Exarchos, that’s a good thing. “We own the building,” he said. “We’re going to watch the developments, obviously. We want to make sure that our residents get the best possible care. But we’re not

The facility to which she was referred just happened to be in Houston, where Kelly’s space center was located. Giffords still unable to communicate, Kelly was torn between going off to space and staying with Giffords, he said. “Deep inside I knew what she would want me to do,” he said. Kelly embarked on his final mission, and while in space, Giffords had her final brain surgery. “The power of the human spirit is an incredible thing,” Kelly said about Giffords. “(She reminds me to) deny the acceptance of failure.” Less than seven months after the attack Giffords returned to the U.S. House of Representatives to vote on the debt ceiling legislation. Kelly said he could never have been more proud of her at that moment. She decided, he said, that despite everything she had been through, “she felt it was important to have her voice heard again.” Giffords resigned her Congressional seat in January 2012 to focus on her recovery. Today, Kelly and Giffords remain committed to Giffords’ recovery and to serve the public and make a difference, including working to prevent gun violence, he said.

Zipcar, from page 1 State College is the perfect town for a car sharing program. “Zipcar is excited to bring car sharing to the State College area which we know forms a thriving community that embraces alternative transportation,” he said. “In communities that embraces alternative transportation like walking, bicycling, the use of mopeds and public transit, Zipcar’s car sharing model serves as a complement. Car sharing allows consumers on demand access to a car without the hassle and cost of ownership.” Students and residents who enroll in the program may use their smartphones to access the Zipcar mobile application to make car reservations, lock and unlock cars and honk the horn to find the car. For those without smartphones, reservations may also be made over the phone or on Zipcar’s website, making the convenience of renting a car unbeatable, especially in these economically challenging times. “Our car sharing model provides a convenient and cost effective alternative for members of the community,” Himberg said. “Many are looking for smart ways to manage a budget. Zipcar frees members from the significant cost of car ownership, including car payments, parking, gas and insurance for a car that would otherwise sit idle for as much as 90 percent of the time or more. In addition, having a Zipcar program nearby provides new levels of freedom – to run errands, go shopping, take a day trip, or even attend job interviews or internships.” With fleets of vehicles in 25 major metropolitan areas and on more than 300 college campuses, Zipcar serves more than 800,000 people annual. According to Katelyn Lopresti, general manager for Zipcar University, the company is looking forward to including State College and Penn State among those numbers. “We are excited to bring Zipcar to State College and provide the community with access to a sustainable trans-

ELECTION DAY CELEBRATION

The Associated Press HARRISBURG — A bill to require mammograms to include breast density information will take effect in three months now that Gov. Tom Corbett has added his signature. Corbett on Friday signed the Breast Density Notification Act into law, calling it “a logical, commonsense bill.” The goal is to improve early detection of cancer among women with comparatively dense breast tissue. The legislation gives women with dense breast tissue information about other ways to screen for cancer. The administration says about 32 Pennsylvania women are diagnosed with breast cancer each day.

Pakistan, shed no tears in this strike A U.S. drone strike on Friday killed the leader of the Pakistani Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsud, an especially murderous and ruthless individual, often described as Pakistan’s public enemy No. 1. One would have thought thanks were in order. Instead, Pakistani officials met the attack with anger (some of it surely feigned), threats to cut off critical NATO supply lines and general all-purpose denunciations of the United States, laced with the usual conspiracy theories involving the U.S. and India. Some of that anger is surely simple embarrassment that, as with the capture and killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the United States accomplished something the Pakistanis had failed to do in years of trying. U.S. operatives have been systematically decapitating the Pakistani TalDale McFeatters iban, almost certainly with the tacit is a columnist for Scripps-Howard approval of the Pakistani government. News Service. Indeed, this strike came only eight days after Pakistani President Nawaz Sharif’s visit to the White House. A drone strike in 2009 killed Mehsud’s predecessor as head of the Pakistani Taliban, Baitullah Mehsud, and a May drone strike killed the group’s second-ranking leader, Wali ur-Rehman. One of Hakimullah Mehsud’s top aides, Latif Mehsud, who served as emissary to various Taliban factions, was captured recently by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. The Pakistani government accused the U.S. of sabotaging peace talks with the Taliban that were to start within a few days. In theory, it’s good that the two sides are talking. But as a practical matter, there seems little room for compromise when one side’s overriding objective is the overthrow of the government and its replacement by an Islamic dictatorship. In his years as a terrorist, Hakimullah Mehsud, believed to be around 33, accumulated quite a rap sheet beyond killing thousands of Pakistani civilians and security personnel. He planned the 2009 suicide bombing that killed seven top CIA agents at an Afghanistan outpost. He was believed to be behind the 2010 car bombing attempt in Times Square. And he made a series of videos following that failed attack, promising more attacks on U.S. cities. The United States has made many mistakes in its dealings with Pakistan, but disposing of Mehsud is not one of them.

Redskins can lead in name change The owner of the Washington Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been clear and emphatic: He has no intention of changing the name of his team, even though many Indians and palefaces recognize the term is clearly a racial slur. But maybe there’s an opportunity here. Consider how we choose our teams’ mascots. Often we choose animals, totems that usually are powerful, swift and ferocious. Thus, the Detroit Lions and Tigers, the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals. I suppose we hope that our John M. Crisp teams will aspire teaches English at Del Mar College to and display in Corpus Christi, the characterisTexas. His column tics that we atis distributed by tribute to these Scripps Howard beasts. News Service. Email This explains him at jcrisp@ why my seventhdelmar.edu. grade football team’s mascot — the Termites! — was changed by some benevolent administrator over the summer to the Panthers. We also sometimes name our teams after groups of people: the Dallas Cowboys, the San Francisco 49ers, the Seattle Mariners, the Houston Texans. And in an extraordinary number of cases, we name our teams after Native Americans. Many U.S. high

JOHN CRISP

schools and colleges have named their teams after Indian tribes (Mohawks, Cherokees, Apaches) or some supposed Indian characteristic or attribute (Warriors, Redmen, Renegades, Braves). Surprisingly long lists of Indianthemed mascots are easily found online. More than 300 high schools simply call themselves Indians, and at least 80 teams use the term Redskins. In fact, more teams have adopted mascots related to Native American culture than use any other category, except for animals. Some argue that this use of Indian names for mascots serves to honor Native Americans. That’s not unreasonable, especially when Indian tribal names are used. But a mascot is inevitably a caricature, an oversimplification of something that’s complicated and a simplistic exaggeration of characteristics that we want to appropriate for our teams. In some cases, we imagine that these characteristics are noble (Chiefs, Braves, Warriors); in others, less so (Renegades, Red Raiders, Redskins). Even in the best cases, however, taking on a mascot involves a certain amount of objectification and condescension. Animals (Dolphins, Seahawks) don’t have much say in the matter. Other mascots are abstractions or from out of the past (Cowboys, Trojans, 49ers). But Indian mascots are different from all others in a significant way. They’re the only ones that are based strictly on race or ethnicity. Well, there are the San Diego Padres and Minnesota Vikings, but only the Indians are still real people, currently liv-

ing among us, the only ones with the capacity to feel the condescension. In general, the trend has been in the right direction. Wikipedia reports that around 1,000 high schools, universities and professional teams have mascots with Indian origins, down from 3,000 a few decades ago. Nevertheless, at least 11 teams are still known as the Savages. One team gave up Savages to become the Outlaws. But why should the rest of the schools be moved to change their mascot when the team of our national capital is still the Redskins? Maybe team owner Snyder will reconsider. I’m certain that the average fan singing “Hail to the Redskins” on a fall Sunday afternoon isn’t committing a conscious act of racial bigotry. Nevertheless, depending on distorted stereotypes of real people for our own amusement is only a dangerously short step away from blackface minstrelsy. Political correctness is only a slightly exaggerated version of a healthy motivation. Snyder and the Redskins have an opportunity to set an excellent example for schools that are still calling themselves Redskins and Savages by declaring that, while it’s been a cool — albeit racist — mascot for 80 years, we’re just not going to call ourselves Redskins anymore. What about the supposed “honorifics” like the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Braves? Perhaps they’re not quite as offensive as Redskin. But when was the last time you saw a war movie that didn’t include an enlisted Indian in the platoon? The other soldiers always call him “Chief.” And they don’t mean it as a compliment.

Health reform needs bipartisan support To learn how implementation of the Affordable Care Act got so bollixed up, you don’t have to look much further than the Oval Office, where an inexperienced President Barack Obama listened to the wrong advice and apparently made a fateful decision based on political concerns. At least that’s the skinny filtering out of the mistake-tattered efforts to begin enrolling tens of millions of Americans in the new health care insurance system. According to The Washington Post, the young chief executive ignored his economic advisers’ warnings that making the fedDan K. Thomasson eral system work is a columnist for Scripps-Howard would require News Service. business, technology and insurance expertise unavailable in the White House at the time. They urged him to set up a special team drawn from the best experts he could find. Instead, Obama assigned supervision to those whose skill sets were woefully inadequate for such a monumental job. Two years later, overhaul of the health-insurance system is what its critics predicted all along: a confusing mess that will take months to straighten out. It likely will offset some of the blame Republicans have

DAN K. THOMASSON

received for trying to upend it by shutting down the government. Obama’s decision in 2010 to keep the task within a small circle of trusted aides reflects once again an insular wariness that has marked his administration from the beginning. Time and again, he has shown a tendency not to venture out of his comfort zone. While he seems at ease in a crowd as he stumps almost constantly for his projects, that quality does not carry over in his daily, more personal activities. Had the president better understood the mechanics of such an enormous undertaking (reforming a system that affects roughly 18 percent of the economy) and its political impact, he would have realized he needed at least nominal bipartisan support. But the legislation had squeaked through in 2010 without a single Republican vote: While most Republicans on Capitol Hill were dedicated to obstructing the Affordable Care Act from the outset, the White House made little effort to reach out to moderate GOP lawmakers. Moreover, by turning over the writing of the ACA to Democratic leaders while he ran around the country selling the reform’s alleged benefits, Obama fed the fires of rampant partisanship that have plagued the entire process. A majority of Americans are still confused by the enormous changes; more than 2 million have received cancellation notices about their current policies, according CBS News, despite the president’s pledge that they would not. How this will play out in the next election is for the soothsayers to pre-

dict. But there have been grumblings from embarrassed Democrats as well as the Republican conservatives who have driven the debate. It’s reminiscent of the Kennedy years, when another inexperienced president with great plans for settling many of the nation’s problems didn’t have a clue about how to make them a reality — and refused to take advice from Lyndon Johnson, a vice president whom he despised. None of John F. Kennedy’s grand initiatives came about until Johnson took over and guided them skillfully around the legislative pitfalls with bipartisan support. That’s especially true of the civil rights bills that have shaped the last 50 years and helped make it possible for an African-American to become president, an event too long in coming. Much of Obama’s handling of the ACA’s adoption and implementation seems to have been driven not by practicalities but by politics, using Hillary Clinton’s failed attempts during her husband’s administration to bring about similar legislation as a cautionary tale. That earlier effort’s failure stemmed from Hillary Clinton’s decision to write the bill in the White House, using experts of her own choosing and excluding Republicans. Obama’s advisers, remembering this, convinced him to send a broad outline to Congress and let his own party fill in the details. Well, the devil is in the details, — and there are plenty in this act of more than 2,000 pages. Whether the details will serve this president well remains to be seen.

Parents hold the key to safer teen drivers From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY — Parents of teen drivers often wonder what the deciding factor is to successfully teach their child to be a safe driver. The answer is — they are. According to registered nurse Beverly Shirk, pediatric trauma care coordinator at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, parents who exemplify safe driving habits produce the most successful drivers. “It starts the moment you turn the car seat around,” she said. Shirk, also a part of the Teen Driver Awareness Program at the Children’s Hospital, shared additional tips to encourage safe driving habits to coincide with Teen Driver Safety Week this week.

ENFORCE THE LAW

n Pennsylvania law states that underage drivers may not drive past 11 p.m. (or before 5 a.m.), and parents should enforce that curfew and not allow their teens to

Changes Hypnotherapy Eliminate Bad Habits Change Your Behavior Improve Your Health

drive after hours. n Only a certain number of passengers may be in the car depending on the situation. Shirk says parents should establish and enforce rules regarding who may be in the car and how many passengers are allowed at one time. n All passengers must wear seat belts. n Make sure your teen understands the consequences of underage drinking or taking drugs and driving. About 20 percent of the teen driving accidents seen at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center since January have been the result of driving under the influence, Shirk said.

MAKE SURE TEEN DRIVERS KNOW WHERE THEY’RE GOING

Review directions ahead of time, whenever necessary. Knowing the directions before the driver gets in the car will prevent the distraction of a GPS or map.

KNOW THE CONDITION OF THE CAR

“It’s not just about putting gas in it,” Shirk said. The tires should be checked regularly and the engine maintained to prevent mechanical failure that could lead to a crash. Parents are responsible for repairs and addressing any issues, as well.

Shirk said the best thing parents can do is stay calm and be available. Teens will not want to tell you if they had a near miss or if something happened if they know you’re going to overreact. Parents should not judge, but listen and give good advice. “Talk to your kids to let them know that they can call you any time, any day and you will come and get them no questions asked, no lectures,” she said. “It’s better than getting the phone call from the hospital or the police that your teen was involved in a crash, or worse.”

ALREADY HAD AN ACCIDENT?

After an accident, a teen driver will eventually need to get back on the road. Shirk suggests that parents get in the car and drive with their child again or ask someone their child will trust and feel comfortable with, like a driving instructor. Teens need to rebuild their confidence and feel comfortable with their own skills. For more information on teen driver laws and safety, visit www.dmv.state.pa.us/teenDriversCenter/newTeen DriversLaw.shtml or www.cdc.gov/parentsarethekey.

Despite adversity, local man gives back to community STATE COLLEGE — As a toddler, Jeff Fredericks was not given good odds of living. His parents were told that if he did live, he would never walk or talk. At 16 months old, Fredericks was diagnosed with maple syrup urine disease (MSUD), a metabolism disorder caused by a gene defect in which the body cannot break down certain parts of proteins. (The urine of those with the disease has a distinct odor of maple syrup, hence the name.) Connie Cousins covers Centre At his birth in 1975, County for the there was no routine Centre County newborn screening Gazette.

CONNIE COUSINS

Fredericks’ odds at diagnosis knew how Fredericks’ indomitable spirit would grow. I recently met with Fredericks, 38, and his mother, Anne Fredericks. Like all moms, she was proud of his achievements — in his case, beyond what anyone ever expected. Fredericks received a great education in State College, especially in Teri Lindner’s special education class, where he traveled with his fellow students to Arizona. (The evidence of ths great education was made even clearer when Lindner was chosen as Outstanding Teacher of the Year by the Disney American Teacher Awards.) The Fredericks family helped start a program at State College Area High School that allows students with disabilities to learn real life skills by staying in an apartment while attending school. From skills learned living in his “Life Link” apartment, Fredericks was able to assist his grandfather during a heart attack and forge a plan to bring help. Currently, when not working at McDonalds, Fredericks volunteers at PAWS and St. Vincent DePaul and is on the property committee at his church, St. John United Church of Christ in Boalsburg. His “Coins for Cooling” project has brought in more

than $5,000 toward the installation of air conditioning in the church. Known as the unofficial mayor of his neighborhood, he has helped many homeowners by watching their properties and caring for their animals when they are away. His attention to detail made it possible to get curbs in the neighborhood repaired. Fredericks showed photos he shot of crumbling curbs to Harris Township manager Amy Farkas. Fredericks also has a keen interest in building construction and knows a lot about heat pumps, renovation and real estate. He has been instrumental in correcting some wet basement issues by remembering how things were done in the initial building stages and pointing out drainage problem areas. Fredericks beat those early odds, living a full life and giving back to his community every day. He has a great sense of humor and a friendly smile. He lives with his parents, but would like to live on his own some day. One of the special perks of writing this column is the opportunity to meet interesting and valuable members of Centre County — folks like Jeff Fredericks.

STUDENTS RETURNED to the Centre Hall-Potter Elementary School along Hoffer Avenue following their annual Halloween march.

Elementary School holds Halloween parade By SAM STITZER

pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

CENTRE HALL — On Oct. 31, students and teachers at the Centre Hall-Potter Elementary School departed from their school building in costumes and set forth on their annual parade through the streets of Centre Hall. Participants were grouped by grades, with banners for each grade, kindergarten through fourth; two students from each grade level carried the banners. The parade was a part of Red Ribbon Week, which encourages students to avoid using drugs. The theme for that day was “Say ‘BOO!’ to Drugs.” Rain threatened to move the parade indoors, but held off long enough for the parade to finish commence.

The students costumes covered a wide range of themes. Many witches, vampires, princesses, pirates and superheroes were seen on the streets, and the get-ups ran the gamut from cute to creepy. After leaving the school, the school’s parade moved north on Hoffer Avenue, east on Church Street, then down the sidewalk along Pennsylvania Avenue. The students solicited donations for the Penns Valley HOPE Fund, instead of asking for trick-ortreat candy. Citizens and merchants along the parade route responded with coins and paper money to help support the charity. The parade continued on to Ridge Street, then back along Hoffer Avenue, returning to the school. Lots of laughter and chatter accompanied the procession, as the children and spectators enjoyed a great fall tradition.

Penns Valley High School unveils new locker rooms By SAM STITZER

pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — The Penns Valley School District recently held an open house for the public to view recent locker room renovations at the Penns Valley Area High School. The school board began the locker room renovation project this summer to improve a part of the school that needed repairs and hadn’t been upgraded since the facility was built in the 1950s. In addition to the locker room updates, the project included the construction of a new cardio room, a multi-purpose room, a trainer’s room and a sports officials’ room. A small addition was added to the building to accommodate the new spaces. The addition is smaller than a full-size gymnasium, but it gives the district some muchneeded room and flexibility for wrestling

practice, indoor baseball drills and other activities. The district spent about $2.8 million on the project, including a $1.7 million general construction contract with Haas Buildings Solutions of State College. Officials said that the board did not have to raise taxes or borrow money for the project, but used reserve funds to complete the work. District Superintendent Brian Griffith gave guided tours of the new rooms. He noted that the new locker rooms feature terrazzo and anti-skid epoxy floors for safety, and glossy ceramic tile for ease of cleaning. The lockers are a durable steel design, and showers are double-depth, featuring a curtained-off dressing area for privacy. Although construction is not finished, contractors expect all work to be done by the end of 2013.

PINE GROVE MILLS — A fall bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Pine Grove Mills Presbyterian Church, located along Route 45 in Pine Grove Mills.

There will be many items for sale, including homemade soup, pies and baked goods. Eat-in lunch is available. For more information, call (814) 2381860.

Local man explores history of Civil War ancestor By SAM STITZER

pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

CENTRE HALL — Like many people, Centre Hall resident Philip Burlingame has an interest in Civil War history and his own family genealogy. On Veterans Day, he will honor the memory of his father, Army Air Corps Capt. Frederick Burlingame Jr., a World War II veteran; his grandfather, Frederick Burlingame Sr., a World War I veteran; and his great-great-grandfather, Herman Leroy Burlingame, a veteran of the Civil War known as “H.L.” who was wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863, while defending McPherson’s Ridge with the 150th Pennsylvania Volunteer Regiment. On July 1, during the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, Philip Burlingame and his two brothers, Terry, of Smethport, and Michael, of Atlanta, Ga., met at Gettysburg and walked the battlefield hour by hour to commemorate the movements of their great-great-grandfather and the 150th Regiment on that fateful day. “We planned our trip for months,” Burlingame said. “Though we had all visited Gettysburg before, the 150th anniversary of the battle was something we had to be part of.” H.L. Burlingame was a corporal at the time of the Gettysburg battle. He was assigned to the 150th Pennsylvania’s Company G, which consisted of many men from McKean County in northern Pennsylvania. Company G was created after the fame and reputation of the original Bucktail Regiment (Kane’s First Rifles, later the 42nd Regiment) had reached Washington, D.C., and the office of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. Twenty companies of Pennsylvania

men were mustered, and two more regiments were formed, both of which drew some troops from the so-called Wildcat District of Pennsylvania, which included McKean County. Like those in the 149th regiment, the men of the 150th wore distinctive bucktails on their hats. The bucktail units were tested in many battles and proved to be especially formidable in the defense of Gettysburg. H.L. and his comrades in Company G saw extensive action in the defense of McPherson’s Ridge on July 1, 1863. H.L. survived the many hours of battle, and he and his fellow soldiers (part of Stone’s Brigade) fought bravely to successfully stave off the attacks of three Confederate brigades. The men of the 150th held strategically important ground at McPherson’s Ridge from mid-morning until early afternoon that day. Early on during the battle, one of the men shouted out, “We have come to stay!” And, indeed, they did stay. During those critical hours, they suffered great casualties but held their ground, permitting the rest of Gen. Abner Doubleday’s regiments to get into position on the other high ground of Gettysburg. As the regiment’s history indicates, late in the afternoon of July 1, the men of the 150th received orders to retreat from McPherson’s Ridge. Lt. Col. Henry Huidekoper, with his arm broken, determined that the retreat was unavoidable to save the cannons of Reynolds’ Battery in place behind them. At that point, nearly half of the men in the 150th had been killed or wounded in the defense of that ridge. According to Burlingame family history, as the regiment moved from the fields back toward the town of Gettysburg, H.L. was shot by a wounded Confederate who was lying on the ground. H.L.’s wound was near his ankle in his right leg. He was cap-

tured at Gettysburg and taken to a Confederate prison camp where his wound was cauterized by a Confederate surgeon. This curtailing of the possible infection likely saved his leg from amputation. Last year, Philip Burlingame was reading the book “Gettysburg: Culp’s Hill and Cemetery Hill” by Harry Pfanz, the former chief historian of the Gettysburg National Military Park. While reading, he discovered that there was an eyewitness account from an 18-year-old Gettysburg resident named Henry Eyster Jacobs describing how Cpl. H.L. Burlingame had been sheltered in a Gettysburg home and was later captured by Confederate troops. “I was so excited about this discovery that I had to travel to the Gettysburg National Military Park to obtain a copy of the eyewitness account from the archives there,” Burlingame said. From other sources, the Burlingame descendants learned that it was troops from Georgia who found Burlingame in the Jacobs’ house. The retreating Confederate troops transported him along with hundreds of other prisoners to Libby Prison in Richmond, Va. It was there that his leg wound was cauterized. Later that year, H.L. Burlingame was released from Libby Prison in a prisoner exchange. After the war, he returned home to work his farm in McKean County near the village of Kasson. In August 1931, H.L. was ill and staying at a nursing home in East Smethport. According to Frederick Burlingame Sr., H.L.’s grandson, the wound on his leg, which had never fully healed throughout his long life, became infected. He developed sepsis and died. There is evidence to believe that H.L. Burlingame may actually have been the last veteran of the Gettysburg battle to die from his war wounds.

CIVIL WAR veteran H.L. Burlingame, seated, is pictured with his son Clifford Burlingame, his grandson Frederick Burlingame Sr., and his infant great-grandson Frederick Burlingame Jr., circa 1929. “H.L. Burlingame played an important role in one of the most important battles of the Civil War,” Philip Burlingame concluded. “To have had the opportunity to walk in his footsteps with my brothers was a powerful experience — one none of us will ever forget.” H.L. Burlingame’s name appears on the Pennsylvania Monument in Gettysburg, carved in stone for generations of Burlingames to see.

Penn State rallies to force OT, then takes down feisty Illinois By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The elated Penn State football players left the field on Saturday afternoon to the sound of the Victory Bell after their cliffhanger 24-17 overtime victory over Big Ten rival Illinois. The fact that the Nittany Lions would be able to ring the bell at all became more and more in doubt as the game against the Fighting Illini progressed and the momentum and the score increasingly turned against the Lions. Things looked most dire when Illinois took a 17-14 lead with just over five minutes to play in the game. Penn State at that point had not scored in its previous five possessions — despite outstanding efforts by Bill Belton and Allen Robinson — but the Lions came through again when they had to. In quick succession, Penn State drove for a Sam Ficken field goal that tied the game at 17 with 41 seconds to play to force overtime. Christian Hackenberg threw a 15-yard touchdown strike to tight end Kyle Carter on the fourth play of overtime to put PSU up 24-17, and then Penn State DB Ryan Kaiser intercepted Nathan Scheelhaase’s first OT pass on a tipped ball in the endzone. Game over, and the Illinois players could only stand and watch as the Nittany Lions mobbed Kaiser in front of the Penn State student section. “I think we have a chance to be a good football team,” Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien said. “We still have a lot of football. I do believe we have to cut down on certain

mistakes, but I told them this morning that I enjoy coaching this team so much. They are tough guys that love to practice and who really appreciate playing for Penn State and that stuck with us. “They are a bunch of great kids, and I am really, really happy for them that they won this football game today. To me, we went out there and did what we had to do to win the football game.” Penn State started quickly, and at first it looked like it would make short work of the Illini. The Nittany Lions scored on their first two possessions after long drives of 84 and 82 yards to take a 14-0 lead and threatened to extend that lead with another drive deep into Illinois territory on their third possession. A 15-yard penalty stalled that drive, and then Ficken missed for the first time this season on an attempt from inJOHN BEALE/AP Photo side 40 yards, keeping PENN STATE tight end Adam the score at 14-0. Brenneman heads upfi eld after No worries, though. Penn catching a pass from fellow freshman State was Christian Hackenberg. Brenneman moving the has seven receptions in seven games ball almost for the Nittany Lions. at will, and

the Lions surely would be back knocking on the door very soon. Except that they didn’t, and Penn State didn’t score another point until there was less than a minute to play in the game. The Illini, who were 0-3 in Big Ten play coming into the game, ramped up their defense after Ficken’s miss and slowly fought themselves back into the game. First they made it 14-3 with a 20-yard Taylor Zalewski field goal with no time left on the clock in the second quarter. Zalewski’s field goal came as the result of a 12-play, 95-yard drive engineered by Nathan Scheelhaase. Then Illinois crept to 14-10 early in the third quarter with its first touchdown of the day after another long drive — this time 88 yards on 13 plays. Tailback Josh Ferguson took it in from the eight, as the Penn State crowd of 95,000-plus fell into a quiet uneasiness about what they were seeing. Penn State continued to move the ball, but the Nittany Lions were unable to score. Three times they marched into Illinois territory in the second and third quarters, and three times they were turned away without points. One drive was stopped at the Illini 40 when Penn State failed to make one yard on both third and fourth downs. Finally, Illinois took its first lead after another long drive, this one 14 plays and 77 yards, ended with a seven-yard pass from Scheelhaase to Ferguson and a 17-14 Illini lead. There was just 5:30 left to play. For Penn State, it was put-up time again. “I felt like we were winning the whole game,” Carter said. “It was just that we let them stay in. When they got up, we had to get serious. We had to win this game, and we couldn’t mess around with these guys. Once we finished it up, everyone was hyped.” Both Belton and Robinson had monster days. Belton rushed a career high 36 times for 201 yards, and he was named as the Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week. Robinson caught 11 passes for 165 yards, including an acrobatic 47-yarder Overtime, Page 16

For Carter, PSU’s win was a personal victory By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — As Penn State tight end Kyle Carter cut left across the endzone on third-and-11, he knew that the offense had dialed up one of coach Bill O’Brien’s favorite plays. Why O’Brien likes that play so much, Carter doesn’t know. But what Carter did know was that in the redzone, and in overtime, it was only matter of time before one of the Nittany Lions’ most-practiced plays would make an appearance. “I knew that Christian looks right, first on that play,” Carter said of the eventual game-winning touchdown. “Then he looked at me and it came in there pretty fast, he pinned it in there.”

“As soon as we go out there I check the safeties every play and I saw that they had split safeties, and I knew that meant I had that post route in there. I planted my right foot and saw the ball in the air; I knew I might get hit so I just tried to absorb it all with my body.” Carter would make the pass, a 15-yard bullet to the front of the endzone. Carter would get hit too, but the ball never shifted in the grasp of one of Penn State’s most talented tight ends. When it was all said and done Carter rose to his feet, yelling skyward in celebration. An interception in the endzone on Illinois’ first play from overtime would seal the deal and Penn State’s second win in conference play.

The good, the bad and the ugly There was plenty of good, bad and ugly to go around during a 24-17 overtime win over Illinois Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium. With the win, Penn State upped its mark to 5-3 overall, 2-2 in the Big Ten. Although Illinois is struggling, a victory was vital for the stretch run. Let’s take a look back at the overtime win. The Good — Bill Belton. The running back was dominant, carrying 36 times for 201 yards and a touchdown. The promotion to starter has obviously helped Belton, who ran over, through and around the Illinois defense. We’ll forgive his lone fumble as he was trying to stretch the ball across the plane of the goal line. The Bad — The defense. Once again, Penn State gave

up too many yards against a very average offense. Illinois finished the game with 411 yards in total offense, including 321 through the air. Luckily, for the Nittany Lions, they stopped the Fighting Illini when it mattered most, including their final drive in overtime. The Ugly — The conference. Other than Ohio State, the Big Ten isn’t very good. Illinois is a bad football team and it’s hard to put fannies in the seats when a team like the Fighting Illini come to town. Unfortunately, for Nittany Lion fans, they’ll have to deal with another Big Ten bottom feeder in a few weeks when Purdue visits Beaver Stadium. Is it too late to switch conferences? — Chris Morelli

Overtime, from page 15 down the left sideline that put the Lions inside the Illinois five. Hackenberg finished 20 of 32 for 240 yards and the touchdown to Carter. Now, Penn State will go after its first Big Ten road win when it travels to TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday to take on Minnesota. Don’t expect anything easy. Minnesota is 7-2, loves to run the ball, and is coming off consecutive conference wins over Northwestern, Nebraska and Indiana. The Golden Gophers haven’t won four consecutive Big Ten games since 1973, and Penn State will need to be ready for a very excited Minnesota team that has lost only once at home this season (to Iowa). The Gophers’ other loss came at Michigan.

Quarterback Phillip Nelson leads the Gopher offense with 64 completions in 114 attempts (54 percent) for 942 yards and eight touchdowns. A dual threat, he has also run for another 300 yards and five scores. David Cobb and Mitch Leidner are the leading runners on the team with 803 and 381 yards respectively and 13 touchdowns between them. Leidner also lines up at quarterback and has completed 29 passes this season for 366 yards and a touchdown. Derrek Engle and Maxx Williams are the leading receivers and both average more than 15 yards per catch. In all, Minnesota averages 31 points per game and 366 yards of total offense — 221 on the ground and 145 in the air. Defensively, the Gophers give up 25 points and 383 yards and seem to be somewhat vulnerable to the pass

(teams average more than 240 yards per game). O’Brien was very complimentary of Minnesota at his weekly news conference on Tuesday afternoon. “They run the ball very well,” he said, “and they run the ball about 75 percent of the time. That’s what they do; that’s what they believe in. Those are the types of players they have. They have two good backs, a quarterback who can run the ball. They have good scheme runs. They are very well coached and this is a very, very good team. One of the best we’ve played this year.” It didn’t look like it would be before the season began, but this game is shaping up as a pivotal one for Penn State. It is a tough game against a good Big Ten opponent on the road, and it will be a good opportunity for O’Brien to measure just how far this team has come.

PENN STATE head coach Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien will be trying to get his squad its first road win of the season when it visits Minnesota on Saturday.

TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette

Carter, from page 15 For Carter, the celebration was a personal one as well. In 2012 Carter had 36 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns but injury caused him to miss the final two games of the season. In Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener against Syracuse this year, Carter almost broke his arm. As a result, Carter has been somewhat limited in the offensive game plan and his 14 receptions for 186 yards are a far cry from his breakout 2012 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He broke his wrist at Nebraska,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said following the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So he missed all of spring practice and he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really at full strength all summer. It was a pretty bad wrist injury, no excuse for it. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really done some good things lately but he is coming off an injury.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then he goes into the Syracuse game and we fake the field goal and the guy lands on him and he almost breaks his arm, so he misses some time there. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any fault of his own. I think he is a heck of a football player and made a big catch for us there at the end. I love coaching the kid, he is a smart guy, a good student, a team guy. He is a fun guy to coach.â&#x20AC;? So when Carter saw that ball headed his way, and when he finally heard the whistle blow and the referee signal the touchdown, it was as much a personal victory as it was a team win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely personal, just for myself,â&#x20AC;? Carter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think about my season every day and trying to get back to where I was last year and just trying to go out there and make plays again, and making that play really helped me out a lot.â&#x20AC;? Last season Carter was a pillar for Penn State, and after Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catch, Carter is hoping that finally the rock has come back to Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense.

Eagles rout Rams in regular-season finale BEA tuned up for District VI quarterfinals By JUSTIN PACKER correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

WINGATE — Bald Eagle Area head coach Jack Tobias has a long memory. He and his squad of Eagles remember what happened at the close of last year. In two straight games BEA squared off against Ligonier Valley — one to end the regular season and one game in district playoffs — and both times the Rams handed BEA a loss. Tobias hasn’t forgotten. “Ligonier Valley whooped us twice last year,” he said. “We knew coming into the game we wanted some revenge. From the Bellefonte game on, we knew we had to win to make districts. It just so happened that this team stood in our way.” The Eagles dominated the Rams from the opening kick and got a stellar performance from Bryce Greene, Bryan Greene and the BEA defense to secure a 45-6 victory. In big moments, you want your big time players to have their hands on the ball. Enter Bryce Greene. The speedy receiver took control of the game from start to finish, ending with four touchdowns — including three receiving and a punt return touchdown. “It feels great,” Bryce Greene said. “For this group of seniors, this was our goal. It was an entire team effort tonight and I am so proud to be a part of this.” Greene absolutely dominated the second quarter, lighting up the scoreboard in the final five minutes of the half and spark-

ing the Eagles to victory. “He is just dynamic,” Tobias said. “He is able to change the game from anywhere on the field. Bryce has done it for us all season and tonight was just another example.” Pair Bryce Greene’s stellar performance with a ball-hogging defense and it is easy to see that the Eagles are ready for the post season. The BEA defense caused four fumbles, recovering all four — including one returned by Bryce’s brother Bryan Greene for a touchdown. The Eagle defense was so fierce, the Rams only accounted for 181 yards of total offense all night — including shutting down a dangerous ground attack of LV for 38 yards. “Coach (Ron) Hoover challenged his defense tonight,” Tobias said. “This Ligonier Valley team is dangerous and we knew we had to be solid. The defense really answered the challenge tonight.” “Those fumbles really hurt us,” Ligonier Valley coach Roger Beitel said. “BEA came into tonight ready to play. We were finding a little success, but then the drive would stall. It was tough to overcome that. We are shuffling positions right now and it hurt us tonight.” Bald Eagle started the game out in the Wildcat — a formation the Eagles used for the first time all season — racking up 59 yards on nine plays, capped by Bryan Greene’s 13-yard touchdown run. “We ran it in practice a lot and wanted to give it (the Wildcat) a test drive before districts,” Tobias said. “The guys were ex-

I was really impressed by the way the offensive line responded. They have been the anchor of this offense all year and tonight was a great example of it.”

The Rams answered right back, marching down the field on a 12-play drive, eating up 73 yards and ended with a Eagles, Page 20

Forest Hills throttles P-O, 34-7 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

sports@centrecountygazette.com

PHILIPSBURG — When Forest Hills leapfrogged two teams last week into the eighth — and final — District 6 Class AA playoff playoff position, its task for Week 10 became crystal clear: protect that spot with a victory at Philipsburg-Osceola. Mission accomplished. But, not without great difficulty against the inspired Mounties. Playing on Senior Night in its final game of the season, P-O gave the heavily-favored Rangers all they could handle before fading after three long Forest Hills scoring plays in the second half. The Rangers struggled against the Mountie defense when they lost their starting quarterback and leading rusher Joe Donoghue early in the game. They were only able to carve out a slim 14-7 halftime lead, but steady senior backup quarterback Tyler Shima stepped in and Forest Hills scored 20 unanswered points in the second half to pull away from the Mounties, 34-7. It wasn’t anything close to the way the Rangers had this game drawn up. Donoghue went down late in the first quarter and did not return, and after a long, second period drive by P-O, FH found itself in a dogfight with the 1-8 Mounties.

In a game that Forest Hills had to win to stay in playoff contention, Shima was able to stabilize the offense, and then senior running back Shareef Blough took over from there. Blough finished the night with 122 yards rushing and two offensive touchdowns on second-half runs of 35 and 29 yards, and then he put the game away with an electrifying 75-yard interception return that put it out of reach for P-O. “We had some key injuries to good players in the first half,” Forest Hills head coach Don Bailey said, “and we had to regroup in that second half. “Our seniors were not going to be denied. So they played their hearts out; they had everybody fired up. Our offensive line did a good job of blocking their front, and Shareef Blough had an awesome second half.” For Philipsburg-Osceola, it was a strong effort, led by a large group of seniors, that was stymied once again by the long play. “You have to make plays,” Mountie head coach Jeff Vroman said. “We didn’t make the plays, and they did. “We played hard. You can’t fault the effort.” Forest Hills struck first in the game. On its initial possession, P-O turned it over on its own 15-yard line after a high snap sailed over the head of quarterback Curtis

Three plays later, Donoghue took it in from the one to make it, after a failed extra point, 6-0. The Rangers threatened to make this game an easy one after they forced

a Mountie punt and promptly marched 38 yards on just three plays for their second touchdown. Quinn Deflauro did the Forest Hills, Page 20

Eagles, from page 1 circus-like catch by Garrett Tobias. With a first-and-goal from the 8-yard line, Fennell overshot his intended receiver, and the ball bounced off two Eagle defenders and right into the hands of a diving Garrett Tobias for six points. From there, it was all BEA as the Eagles rattled of 38 straight points. Tyler Schall tacked on three more points for the Eagles with a 32-yard field goal, after a BEA drive stalled with 8:45 remaining in the second quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tyler is such a nice weapon to have,â&#x20AC;? Coach Tobias said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of walking away with a turnover on downs, Tyler gives us the chance to walk away with points. It gets the guys excited and gives us more momentum.â&#x20AC;? Bryce Greene went to work scoring three of his touchdowns. The first was a bubble screen pass from Jones that Greene caught, carving up 50 yards for a score.

The second was a 24-yard skinny post from Jones. The third of his scores might have been the most impressive, as Greene wrangled in a punt off a hop and scorched down the sideline for 71 yards and a touchdown. Heading into the half, BEA held a 31-6 lead. Bryan Greene kept the momentum in the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favor in the second half as he scooped up a fumble and outran the Ram pursuit for 39 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is always great to get points off a turnover,â&#x20AC;? Coach Tobias said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bryan, like his brother, has the ability to make things happen. He is such a spark out there and one of the main reasons we are heading to districts.â&#x20AC;? The scoring ended with Bryce Greene hauling in a 33-yard pass from Jones, capping off the scoring at 45-6. Bald Eagle Area (6-4) will travel to Tyrone for the quarterfinals of the District VI Class AA playoffs on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Forest Hills, from page 1 honors after he was led with a perfect pass by Donoghue into the left side of the end zone. A two-point conversion made it 14-0. But that would be all for Forest Hills in the half. Through a combination of a stiffening P-O defense and the right-leg injury to Donoghue, the Mounties stopped FH cold in its next three possessions. Given some time to breathe, the P-O offense came to life in the first minutes of the second quarter. P-O took over on its 23-yard line and marched 77 yards on 16 plays for a touchdown that put it squarely back into the game. Mason Pryde took it in from the four, and Nick Boumheriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kick made the score 14-7. Shima was able to get FH into scoring position at the 15 of P-O with under 30 seconds to play on the second quarter, but the P-O defense snuffed out the threat and the teams went into the locker rooms with the score still 14-7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hats off to Philipsburg,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played their hearts out for a 1-8 team. But we knew we had to regroup in the second half and start running the ball.â&#x20AC;? Which is exactly what the Rangers did. Blough ignited FH with a 35-yard strike in the latter stages of the third quarter to open a 20-7 Ranger lead. Just over four minutes later, on Forest Hillsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next possession, he did it again, this time for 29 yards and a 27-7 lead. The clincher came when P-O, trying desperately to make something happen, ran a halfback pass that was initially wide open. The pass, however, was under thrown, and Blough had it all the way. He picked it off, dodged two tacklers, and was gone without being touched down the right sideline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fortunate, again,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give the credit to the seniors and offensive and defensive lines. They sucked it up in the second half.â&#x20AC;? Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off to the Class AA playoffs for the Rangers, and P-O will enter the offseason searching for ways to end what is now a two-season long tailspin.

Flying Dutch soar past Red Raiders By CHRIS MORELLI

2013 season, the Red Raiders would spend the final 24 minutes of play trying to pull themselves out of a huge hole. “I think it’s hard. Once adversity comes, it’s hard to shake off the previous eight, nine weeks. As much as the kids wanted to, those things haunt you. They sit in the back of your mind. When they see 21, 28 points, I think it feels insurmountable to them,” Manning said. To their credit, the Red Raiders didn’t quit. They were able to put up 16 thirdquarter points. However, the Flying Dutch matched them punch for punch, putting up 14 of their own. By the end of the third quarter, it was 48-24. The Dutch would tack on one more score for good measure in the final quarter. According to Schlimm, his team got a bit sloppy in the second half. “We didn’t play our best in the second half. But when you’re up by 30 points, that’s a nice position to be in. You worry about (relaxing). You start to worry about injuries. We’ve got playoffs coming up, so I’m glad everyone came out of this one unscathed,” he said. There will be no postseason for the Red Raiders, of course. It was a tough season for Manning and his squad. As injuries piled up, Manning was forced to put players in unfamiliar positions. Junior varsity players were bumped up to varsity. Growing pains? You bet. “We had sophomores who were starting who are now injured and out. A lot of the sophomores we’re playing haven’t even been playing on Monday nights (in JV games),” Manning said. “You can’t say these kids don’t try. They do try. Sometimes, youth and inexperience are hard to overcome.”

BELLEFONTE — On Senior Night at Rogers Stadium, the Bellefonte Area High School football team tried desperately to get its first win of the season. Once again, the Red Raiders came up short. Bellefonte completed a winless season on Friday night, falling to visiting St. Marys, 54-24. The Red Raiders (0-10) started well enough, taking an 8-0 lead in the first quarter. But things fell apart quickly. “The little things that got you to 0-9 are some of the same reasons you end up 0-10,” said Bellefonte first-year coach Shanon Manning. “Turnovers, not being assignment perfect … those things, over the course of the year, get magnified. They just seem to snowball. Something that seems like a small hiccup early on seems like something huge once you get to 0-7, 0-8.” St. Marys (6-4) found itself in an 8-0 hole early. However, the Flying Dutch responded quickly, taking control of the game on its next several drives. “We really got some things going there, particularly in the second quarter,” said St. Marys coach Joe Schlimm. “We got punched in the mouth in the first two minutes of the game, but we responded well. I’m proud of the way we did that.” The Flying Dutch scored a pair of firstquarter touchdowns to make it 14-8. However, a fumble by Bellefonte quarterback Mark Armstrong gave the ball right back to the Flying Dutch and they converted the turnover into a score to make it 22-8. St. Marys would add 26 second-quarter points. It took a 34-8 lead into the locker room. As has been the case for most of the

Cumberland Valley upends State High By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

MECHANICSBURG — Cumberland Valley pounded away on its ground game and thanks to the efforts of Tyler Updegraff and Tyler Heisey, CV knocked off State College, 39-26, on Friday night. State College opened the game with a 54-yard drive in eight plays to take a 7-0 lead following a 3-yard score by Jordan Misher. Cumberland Valley responded with its own lengthy drive which ended with a 1-yard drive by by Heisey. A poor punt, which netted just under 20 yards, gave the Eagles great field position which they capitalized on by quickly scoring from a couple of yards out only a few plays later. Updegraff would take the ball 87 yards early in the second quarter to ex-

tend the Eagles’ lead to 19-7 in the second frame. Cumberland Valley would take that lead into the half. State College didn’t go down without a fight, though, as Little Lion quarterback Patrick Irwin engineered a drive in the third quarter to bring State College within 12 following a 45-yard Cumberland Valley pass and score. The game was still very much within reach for the Little Lions, who were down 25-13. The Eagles responded with a powerful drive of their own to extend the lead again. The teams traded scores back and forth, but a run of 30 yards put the Eagles up 39-19 with 7:17 to go. Irwin would punch in another score, but it was too little, too late. State College ends its regular season 5-5, and 4-3 in district play.

A risk factor is something negative in a young person’s environment that increases the likelihood of substance use, health issues or behavior problems.

Centre County youth tell us that parental attitudes that favor antisocial behaviors, such as stealing or picking a fight, put them at risk.

Custom Stone Interiors

Custom Stone Interiors, Inc., (CSI) located in Penn Eagle Industrial Park at 360 Rolling Ridge Drive, Bellefonte, was founded by co-owners Jon Waltz and Jake Everhart in 2001. “Our focus is on working with homeowners in the area for all of their countertop needs,” said Waltz, who is also president of the company. CSI offers a wide-range of granite and other natural stone countertops in their 8,500 square feet showroom with about 100 to 200 slabs for potential customers to choose from, Waltz said. “People can pick exactly what they like,” he said. If CSI doesn’t have a certain stone or countertop style on hand for a client to see, they can import from one of their partners in Pittsburgh, New Jersey or Maryland. Quartz, Waltz said, is becoming more popular since it can be easily maintained. This past year, CSI moved to its new location in Bellefonte from Centre Hall. Waltz said this was due to the company outgrowing its previous location and needing more space.

“We offer materials that others in the area don’t,” he said. “We believe deep down that our quality is better.” The company’s biggest market is in State College, Waltz said, but they do work in other areas of Centre County and even Altoona and Johnstown. “We will go just about anywhere, but our core market is in State College,” he said. CSI’s current timeline between orders being placed to installation is about two months, Waltz said, but that should change soon. In January, the company expects to receive two Computer Numeric Controlled machines from Breton, Italy, the newest generation of countertop cutting products in the industry, he said. These new machines will increase workers’ ability to make precise and creative cuts as well as shorten the turnaround time between the selection and installation of countertops, Waltz said. In addition to countertops, CSI also has a full line of sinks and faucets to complement the countertop a customer chooses, Waltz said.

Arts & Entertainment Dr. Lonnie Smith bringing show to Schwab From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Musician, composer, performer and recording artist Dr. Lonnie Smith, a master of the Hammond B-3 organ for more than half a century, fronts his “In the Beginning” octet in concert at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, in Penn State’s Schwab Auditorium. Smith’s been featured on 70-plus albums — more than 20 as a bandleader — and recorded and performed with many of the greatest jazz, blues and R&B musicians of his time. In addition to Smith, the octet features trumpeter Andy Gravish, tenor saxophonist John Ellis, alto saxophonist Ian Hendrickson-Smith, baritone saxophonist Jason Marshall, guitarist Ed Cherry, drummer Joe Dyson and conga player Kahlil Kwambe Bell. The octet’s name was inspired by the title of a Smith composition on the group’s new album, which features original material that the organist wrote and recorded throughout his career on albums that are now out of print. Smith’s mother immersed him in gospel, blues and jazz. He played the trumpet in school. As a teen, he was also a doo-wop singer. After teaching himself to play the Hammond B-3, Smith began performing in Buffalo jazz clubs, where he caught the attention of guitarist George Benson. Smith gained recognition as a member of Benson’s quartet. He made his first album as a leader — “Finger Lickin’ Good” — for Columbia Records in 1966. From

there he recorded several epic Blue Note albums, including the million-seller “Alligator Boogaloo,” with saxophonist Lou Donaldson. Blue Note soon inked Smith to his own contract, a deal that would produce the soul jazz classics “Think!”, “Turning Point,” “Move Your Hand,” “Drives” and “Live at Club Mozambique.” Smith conveys such joy at the keyboard that it sometimes seems as though the music doesn’t come from him but passes through him. “Before I start playing, it’s almost like I do not know anything about that instrument. But when I start playing, it’s like it draws me to it and expression comes out of me,” he said. “ … It’s like a burning fire. It’s like electricity that goes through my body, my whole body, when I play.” Smith, who began using “Dr.” before his name in the 1970s, has insatiable musical tastes. He’s recorded covers of music by the Beatles, the Stylistics and the Eurythmics — plus tribute albums to Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane and Beck. Tickets for Smith’s concert are available online at http://cpa.psu.edu, or by phone at (814) 863-0255 or (800) ARTSTIX. Tickets are also available at four State College locations: Eisenhower Auditorium (weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Penn State Downtown Theatre Center (weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), HUB-Robeson Center Information Desk (weekdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and Bryce Jordan Center (weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. They also are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must

constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage.

His other books include “Black Planet: Facing Race During an NBA Season,” a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; “Remote: Reflections on Life in the Shadow of Celebrity,” winner of the PEN/ Revson Award; and “Dead Languages: A Novel,” winner of the PEN Syndicated Fiction Award.

Don’t miss your social media opportunity DAVID M. MASTOVICH

“I don’t get (insert social media network, i.e. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.).” “I’m not sure it’s worth the time and money.” “We’re doing a little bit of (insert social media network).” We hear similar responses from decision makers at large corporations, medium-sized companies and small businesses. According to Pew Research Center, 72 percent of online adults use social networking sites. MBA Online reports eight in 10 social media users in the U.S. would rather connect with companies via social media than corporate websites. More than half of the U.S. is on Facebook and more than 200 million tweets are sent each day. Yet many

businesses still struggle to leverage the opportunity. It starts, or actually doesn’t start, at the top. A CEO.com study showed fewer than 30 percent of Fortune 500 company CEOs have one profile on a social network, and the vast majority have none. Of the CEOs on LinkedIn, many have only one or zero connections. While lack of CEO participation is troubling, the biggest risk for businesses is missing the social media opportunity. It’s where your customers and prospects are and where they expect your company to be. You can learn market insights on customers, competitors, influencers and more, all while increasing awareness of your company. Whether you are a middle manager, director, VP, entrepreneur or CEO, you need to focus on social media. Here are six tips to improve your social media “return on investment”: n Leverage LinkedIn and other vehicles to prepare for major presentations, sales calls, internal meetings, strategic planning and even ongoing management of your team.

n Increase awareness of your key message points through Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other networks. Your story needs to be told by you, not others. n Uncover “digital dirt” about your company and set the record straight. n Don’t just share content, create and have conversations. n Ask customers questions and listen to their advice. n Promote customer sharing of experiences to solve problems and build credibility. Remember, the bigger risk is missing the social media opportunity. Don’t run from or just dabble in social media. Commit to leveraging it.

Nittany Lion Fund seniors set for jobs post-graduation From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Though it is early in the fall semester, all Class of 2014 students involved in the Nittany Lion Fund have already accepted job offers, according to J. Randall Woolridge, professor of finance in the Penn State Smeal College of Business, and president of the Nittany Lion Fund LLC. “This is a huge accomplishment,” said Woolridge, “and it speaks to our consistently high placement history and high quality of graduates.” The Nittany Lion Fund is a unique opportunity for highperforming students in finance. The student-managed investment fund has more than $5 million in assets and provides Smeal students with the ability to connect to real-world investors without leaving the business building. It is one of the few student-managed funds with actual investor money — not endowment dollars. “We have 77 investors, and it really changes the level of accountability,” explained Woolridge. “Having real investors changes the dynamic for the students and gives them a heightened sense of responsibility.”
