Mayor: Climate change guided stance By MARJORIE S. MILLER

STATE COLLEGE — Explaining her decision to endorse a campaign that urges municipalities to divest from fossil fuel companies, State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham expressed concern Monday that carbon dioxide emissions could drastically affect the climate in the future. Goreham joined nine other mayors in urging municipalities to divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies because of climate change, according to an Associated Press article published last week, but other officials said the issue hasn’t been voted on. The information in the article was obtained from a press release by environmental group Goreham, who made clear she has no direct administrative authority on the issue and is not a policymaker, said climate

change is an important issue facing the country. Fossil fuels drive carbon dioxide emissions, which increase climate warming, she said. Goreham said when she found out about the campaign, she made sure to speak with the State College Borough Council, which makes policy decisions such as this one, to recommend that it didn’t directly invest in fossil fuel companies. It’s predicted, Goreham said, that in 20 years or less, “our climate will be tremendously changed here,” including higher temperatures and hotter weather. “(We’re going) in a direction that we need to stop,” she said. Goreham said while her opinions are “not binding on the borough,” she is “sounding the alarm.” Climate change is something communities need to think about, she said, as well as find ways to reduce fossil fuel. It’s im-

portant for future generations to look at other energy options now, she said. “That’s really my perspective,” she said. Goreham said she believes she exemplifies a sentiment of the town. “(I felt) I was repELIZABETH resenting my town GOREHAM properly,” she said. The campaign, called Fossil Free, maintains that educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels, according to’s website. According to the Associated Press, the

modern oil industry began in northwest Pennsylvania in 1859, and the state is currently home to the most productive natural gas field in the nation, the Marcellus shale, which has sparked a boom in drilling. David Yoxtheimer, extension associate at the Penn State Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research, said there are both benefits and potential negative impacts to Marcellus shale drilling in Pennsylvania. Part of his work involves looking at ways to use science to minimize the impacts and maximize the benefits, he said, while not having a particular stance other than “allowing the science and facts to act as a guide.” Fossil fuel investment, he said, is a personal choice. “Energy development can have positive economic impacts whether it be through

providing care in the community, as close to home as possible,” Berndt said. “It’s example of how Geisinger wants to provide care for the right person, at the right place, at the right time. Not all care needs to go elsewhere. This is a great place to come if you have a minor medical condition that this clinic can handle.” The 1,500-square-foot clinic is located next to the Weis Market. It features two exam rooms, one lab and a large storage facility. “It’s a beautiful facility,” said Dr. Raymond Nungesser, regional medical director for Geisinger Health System. “The entire Careworks platform is

PLEASANT GAP — At one time, the building at 157 W. College Ave. housed parcels, postage and post office boxes. Now, it’s the home of pasta, sauces and olive oil. The former Pleasant Gap Post Office now houses the Fasta Pasta and Ravioli Co. Bob Ricketts, owner of Fasta Pasta, converted the post office into the local pasta shop. Fasta Pasta and Ravioli Co. has been at the location for nearly a year now. “We were doing a delivery to the Red Horse Tavern nearly two years ago and saw the building after the post office closed,” Ricketts said. “It was just a perfect fit.” Converting an old post office into a modern pasta shop was not an easy task, Ricketts said. “It was pretty involved. It took about a year from when we first saw the building to what people see today,” he said. Fasta Pasta, which also has a location in downtown State College at 129 S. Fraser St., offers something for every foodie. There is, of course, about every CHRIS MORELLI/The Gazette type of pasta imaginaPASTA MAN: Bob Ricketts, owner of Fasta ble, from angel hair to

New PSU trustees hope to influence board tone By GENARO C. ARMAS The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State’s three new alumni trustees will likely need more allies on the board to get the school’s governing body to re-visit former FBI director Louis Freeh’s scathing report into the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. But one of the newly elected trustees, Barbara Doran, said the turnover does add to the board three more reformminded voices that hope to influence future conversations. Doran and the other newcomers were supported by a vocal alumni group critical of school leadership for its actions since retired assistant football coach Sandusky was arrested in November 2011. Some alumni and former players want the school to take another look at the report Freeh conducted for the school, which they say made unfounded accusations against the late coach Joe Paterno. How the university handled his firing days after Sandusky’s arrest also remains a major sticking point. “Well, we still don’t have the numbers in terms of the votes. If you were to call a vote on a certain issue, it’s not going to happen,” Doran said. “But I think when you have three strong voices coming in, it begins to change the tenor.” Doran, Bill Oldsey and Ted Brown easily won election among alumni in results announced at last week’s board meeting. Each had endorsements from the alumni group Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship and the Paterno family. The board now has 30 voting members after trustees on Friday took away the votes of the Pennsylvania governor and the university president as part of a package of governance reforms. Alumni hold nine seats total, with three seats up each year. The rest of the board is composed of six business

July 2012. Two years of turnover will open new opportunities for discussion, she said. “Maybe we didn’t do the right things, and there are things we can do to right the ship,” Doran said after learning about her victory. “So I think that the dynamic changes, and I think the message will start to soften from some of the hardliners, and they’ll start to look back and think we may have to re-examine a few things.” Lubrano said Monday that he hoped the nine alumni trustees would meet as a group over the new few weeks to gauge the pulse of the group’s constituency. The university boasts roughly 560,000 graduates across the country. Addressing Paterno’s legacy and the Freeh report remain important, he said, “but the greatest issue is re-establishing credibility in the community.” Trustees have said Paterno was ousted in part because he didn’t meet a moral obligation to do more to alert authorities about allegations against Sandusky. Paterno died in January 2012 at age 85. His family has vehemently denied any suggestion that he would cover up such allegations.

trustees appointed by the board itself; six agricultural trustees voted on by state agricultural groups; six gubernatorial appointees; and three ex-officio members in Pennsylvania’s secretaries of agriculture; education; and conservation and natural resources. The alumni voting bloc is seen by watchdogs as the most visible way to effect change. “I’m looking forward to getting to know the new candidates and working with them, having a good debate inside the board,” trustees chairman Keith Masser said after Friday’s meeting when asked if the election represented a barometer of the alumni’s feelings. The three new alumni trustees formally take their seats at July’s meeting. They arrive a year after alumni sent three other newcomers to the board in Anthony Lubrano, Ryan McCombie and Adam Taliaferro. Each man also campaigned to varying degrees on reform. Doran said her most critical issue was re-addressing Freeh’s findings, which were never formally approved or discussed by the full board following the report’s release in

Pasta, from page 1 fettuccine to ravioli. There are also a variety of homemade sauces â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tomato, tomato basil, marina, Fasta diablo and creamy vodka are among the options to top the homemade pasta. Ricketts, 29, is a graduate of Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Hospitality. Fasta Pasta actually started out as a college project, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In English class, I wrote a business plan. My senior semester, my advisor, Dr. (Peter) Bordi, who runs the Center for Food Innovation on campus, let me get a little pasta machine and set it up in his research kitchen and develop my recipes,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said. After graduation, Ricketts put his business plan in motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took a year after graduation and developed my soft skills at the Nittany Lion Inn â&#x20AC;Ś just in terms of management style, hiring and things of that nature. I saw a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;for rentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sign, I went and looked at the space and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is perfect.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; At that point I was just planning to do farmers markets and wholesale,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said. The downtown shop was so successful, Ricketts said, that he decided to branch out and put one in Pleasant Gap. The response has been extremely positive, he said.

Having all three create a synergy that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match if you tried,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said. Both the Village Eatinghouse and Red Horse Tavern will use pasta from Fasta Pasta in their pasta dishes. Having a friendly relationship with his neighbors has certainly paid dividends for Ricketts. With that in mind, he sells a variety of items at his shop â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not just pastas, sauces and olive oils. Ricketts also sells Sweet Heat Gourmet barbecue sauces, Goot Essa cheeses, as well as Hogs Galore and Way Fruit Farm products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concept is to take the best products that are at the farmers markets and have another venue to sell them,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said. But make no mistake about it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fasta Pasta is all about the pasta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 60 different types of pasta that we make ranging from egg fettuccine to orange jalapeno,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got around 40 different types of ravioli of which weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve usually got 15 to 20 in stock ranging from classic ricotta cheese to a braised short rib.â&#x20AC;? If it sounds like Ricketts is passionate about pasta, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because he is. He knows that nothing compares to fresh pasta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;freshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pasta you get at the grocery store has a 90-day shelf life. Anything that is good for 90 days and is sold as fresh â&#x20AC;Ś that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really seem right,â&#x20AC;? he said. At Fasta Pasta, the pasta is made on site and sold fresh. If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell within a couple of days, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken off the shelves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can make as small of a batch as 6 pounds and as big of a batch as 25 pounds. We try to cycle our inventory every three days. We have a loss factor built in so we can ensure that the customer gets an incredibly fresh product,â&#x20AC;? Ricketts said.

GEISINGER CAREWORKS officially opened its doors on May 3. The walk-in clinic is located on Buckaroo Lane, right next to Weis Market. Careworks, from page 1 built on keeping care in the community so people have a place to go close to home, seven days a week. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have care in the evenings, care on the weekends. They wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go to the emergency room, so we can reduce costs. The employers canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it and the patients canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it.â&#x20AC;? The facility is the first of its kind in Bellefonte. And just because it has the Geisinger name doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that patients have to be a part of the Geisinger health plan to make use of the facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bill all insurance. We take Medicare, Medicaid, all insurances. We offer a cash discount for people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance,â&#x20AC;? Nungesser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve developed the lowest-cost model in all of Pennsylvania so everyone has access to care.â&#x20AC;? Although the facility wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to do certain things, such as X-rays or casts, the physicians at Careworks can get the ball rolling on those sorts of treatments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the results from their visit will get sent to their primary care doctor. This is designed not to be a medical home, but to be an extension of their medical home when they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in to see their doctor,â&#x20AC;? Nungesser explained. The idea behind Careworks, according to Nungesser, is to eliminate unnecessary trips to the ER. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be about a 10th as expensive as an emergency room visit,â&#x20AC;? Nungesser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Primary care co-pays are inexpensive. People can come here for about $20.â&#x20AC;? As for the location, Nungesser couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier. He said that having Weis right next door will be extremely convenient for patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge. About two-thirds of the people who come to a facility like this come because they have a need for a prescription. Not having a place to get your prescription filled is a problem. We wanted to design it around one-stop

shopping and convenience,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can e-prescribe it over to the (Weis) pharmacy. They can get in and out of here in about 20 minutes. This whole thing is designed to get patients back into their personal lives as soon as possible.â&#x20AC;? A Careworks is slated to open in State College in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have 26 Careworks by fall throughout the Geisinger service area,â&#x20AC;? Nungesser said. Geisinger Careworks is open seven days a week. The clinic is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends and select holidays. For more information, visit, stop by at 174 Buckaroo Lane in Bellefonte or call (814) 353-1030.


higher returns on investments, (though energy price swings can make this a two-way street) or creation of new jobs, business opportunities and tax revenues,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For instance, State College received over $32,800 in shale well impact fees for use in infrastructure improvement or environmental projects, and Centre County received $660,181.7. We have to keep in mind that the economic benefits must be balanced by protecting the environment.â&#x20AC;? Yoxtheimer said there are many studies that show potential correlation between greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, and a rise in global temperatures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is difficult to refute that humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; use of fossil fuels is impacting the climate,â&#x20AC;? he said. Yoxtheimer said recent data by the Energy Information Administration show that CO2 emissions from power generation in the United States are at a 20-year low due to displacement of coal with natural gas, which emits 45 percent less CO2. Additionally, Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air quality is improving by removing tons of pollutants that would otherwise be emitted by coal, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Though we must be careful with fugitive emissions of methane since it is a potent greenhouse gas itself,â&#x20AC;? Yoxtheimer said. The State College area has benefited from natural gas in a variety of ways, he said, including running the CATA buses for many years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are local economic impacts by having energy companies such as Rex Energy and Eclipse Resources which are sustaining local jobs, (and) construction companies like Hawbaker and HRI, (which) conduct work in the field.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, Yoxtheimer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local engineering and environmental firms (are) making sure the industry operates within the regulations to ensure any negative impacts are minimized.â&#x20AC;? Yoxtheimer, a hydrogeologist who conducts research on water and environmental impacts associated with shale energy development, said some of his current projects include research on methane migration into groundwater, and water management and waste disposal practices. State College Borough Manager Thomas J. Fountaine was not available for comment as of press time. The other mayors who have endorsed divesting from fossil fuel companies are from Madison, Wis.; Bayfield, Wis.; Ithaca, N.Y.; Boulder, Colo.; Eugene, Ore.; Richmond, Calif.; Berkeley, Calif.; San Francisco, and Seattle, according to the Associated Press.

Gas pipeline discussed at borough council meeting By KEVIN HORNE

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It appears the controversy over a proposed high-pressure gas pipeline in State College isn't going away anytime soon. At Monday night's borough council meeting pipeline opponents urged council members to stick to their guns. That follows the release of a letter from Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, which left open the possibility of legal action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little irritated by the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;capricious,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Councilman Peter Morris said of the letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been called worse things I guess.â&#x20AC;? In its letter Columbia Gas stated the permit denial was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;arbitrary, capricious, unreasonable and against applicable law. ... â&#x20AC;? Last month, the council voted unanimously to deny Columbia Gas a permit to begin construc-

tion on a high-pressure natural gas pipeline that would run through some residential areas of State College. The pipeline is needed to convert Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Campus Steam Plant from coal to natural gas. The letter sent from Columbia Gas to Borough Manager Tom Fountaine asks borough council to consider withdrawing its permit denial or face the possibility of a court battle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Columbia believes it would be a waste of resources (its own and the Boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) to request review of the denial of the Application and then, assuming reconsideration does not change the initial result, appeal the denial to the Court of Common Pleas,â&#x20AC;? the letter reads in part. Under the original plan, the pipeline would have been routed through several State College Streets including, Bellaire Avenue, University Drive, Prospect Avenue,

and Burrowes Street Bowing to public pressure, Penn State asked the gas company to consider an on-campus alternative route. That process is now underway and is expected to take several weeks. Nine members of the community spoke on the subject during public hour at last nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borough council meeting. As has become common practice at these meetings in recent weeks, members of the community strongly opposed the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am here to voice my appreciation for the courageous job you have done by standing up to Penn State and Columbia Gas,â&#x20AC;? said State College resident Janet Engeman, who lives near the proposed pipeline route on Prospect Avenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not through fighting with Columbia Gas over their unreasonable behavior.â&#x20AC;? Leif Jensen, who also lives on Prospect Avenue, also lauded borough council for its opposi-

tion to the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made a plea that council be brave and courageousâ&#x20AC;Ś you have been bothâ&#x20AC;? said Jensen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our collective resolve might be tested in the months to come. Please know that we strongly support you.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Peter Morris, who has been vehement in his opposition to the pipeline project, stood by borough councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to deny the permit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our greatest strength in this dispute is the united front you have shown in your neighborhoods and to council. You are all incredibly strong on this issue,â&#x20AC;? said Morris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if that if we were to somehow rescind the resolution, that united front would be broken and our power in this dispute lessened. Frankly, that would be a tragedy.â&#x20AC;? Last week, borough council said it is reviewing the permit denial with its lawyer.

In other business, council members voted unanimously to approve an ordinance for the annual Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. The 47th Arts Fest will be held in downtown State College from July 10 and run through July 14. An ordinance is required each year to shut down certain streets and allow for other changes during the week. Chase Englund, a Penn State senior, was confirmed as the student governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (UPUA) representative to Council. Council also reviewed next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CATA budget and the possibility of expanding advertising on the side of the buses, although no vote was taken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the idea [of expanding advertising] is interesting and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be willing to go with he experiment,â&#x20AC;? said Councilwoman Sarah Klinetob. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just as long as they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow giant rum bottles on the side.â&#x20AC;?

Penn State continues fight Grand jury judge: Defendants are stalling against McQueary lawsuit By MARK SCOLFORO The Associated Press

HARRISBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The supervising judge for the grand jury that investigated how former administrators handled Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-profile child sex-abuse scandal said in a new court filing that the defendants are intentionally stalling their criminal case with repeated motions and appeals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view, defendantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; various motions, appeals and assertions (all of which are within their rights) are an attempt to delay the case from being heard before the proper tribunals,â&#x20AC;? Feudale wrote in an GRAHAM SPANIER order released Tuesday. The defendants, former school president Graham Spanier, vice president Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley, are accused of covering up complaints about convicted sex offender Jerry Sandusky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Continued delay of this case is not in the interest of justice as to (the) defendants and the alleged victims,â&#x20AC;? Feudale wrote in response to defense requests. Attorneys for Curley and Schultz declined comment, and a spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane blamed defense motions for the delays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The attorney general is appreciative

that Judge Feudale recognizes that further delays are harmful and looks forward to a fair and expeditious resolution of these cases,â&#x20AC;? said Kane spokesman Dennis Fisher. Sandusky, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former assistant football coach, was arrested on child molestation charges in November 2011, at the same time charges of perjury and failure to properly report suspected abuse were lodged against Curley and Schultz. Sandusky was convicted last summer of sexually abusing 10 boys. He is pursuing appeals while serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence. Curley and Schultz have not gone to trial, and additional charges were filed against them in November, when Spanier was charged. The courts have not conducted a preliminary hearing for the second set of charges, which is unusual, as the defendants have objected to the possibility that former Penn State chief counsel Cynthia Baldwin might be a witness against them. The three men face charges of perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Spanier was forced out as university president shortly after Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest. Curley was the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director, but he is currently on leave while serving out the final year of his contract. Schultz, once a top administrator as vice president for business and finance, has retired. All three have vigorously denied the allegations against them.

UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In a new court filing made Tuesday morning, Penn State lawyers continue to refute claims made by former assistant football coach Mike McQueary. McQuearyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers say the university harmed him and that he deserves more than $4 million in damages for lost wages and benefits. McQueary filed a whistleblower lawsuit last year, claiming that his firing from Penn State was unwarranted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(McQueary) has not suffered any emotional, psychological and/or physical distress or injury as a result of any actions or inactions of the University, and any condition allegedly suffered by (McQueary) is attributable to causes wholly independent of the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged actions and/or inactions,â&#x20AC;? Penn State attorney Nancy Conrad wrote in the filing.

The filing was in response to written arguments made my McQuearyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers last month after judge Thomas Gavin overruled Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s objection that McQuearyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims were too vague to hold up in court. Penn State MIKE MCQUEARY denied almost every allegation made by McQueary, either on the basis of fact or because they lack knowledge about the claim. McQueary claims that former Penn State President Graham Spanier defamed him in a public statement supporting Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. He is suing Penn State for lost wages and other related damages.

Trustees approve changes to university governance By The Associated Press STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn State trustees have approved reforms to university governance following the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal and learned two incumbents on the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing board were voted out by alumni. The changes approved by the board include removing the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governor and the university president as voting trustees. A board member and a board vice chair lost their seats Friday after facing vocal op-

position from critics angered by the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions since the scandal broke in late 2011. Winning election were candidates endorsed by an alumni group critical of university leadership. Many alumni are upset about the firing of football coach Joe Paterno days after former assistant coach Sandusky was arrested. Sandusky was convicted of abusing several boys and is in prison but maintains his innocence.

Columnist misses mark on firearms I must respectfully disagree with some of Dan K. Thomassonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statements in his column in the April 25-May 1, 2013, edition of The Centre County Gazette. His statement that society resists â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost any effort to control the manufacture, sale and distribution of lethal firearmsâ&#x20AC;? is incorrect. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he know that guns are probably one of the most heavily regulated products in America? Or that there are about 20,000 gun laws on the books in this country? Also those of us who own, respect and use firearms do so legally. We do not worship them! We do not cling to our guns and our religion because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bitter (as President Obama has said), but rather we cling to our rights and our faith because we understand how blessed we are to live in America. Also, we pray that we never have to use a gun to protect ourselves or others, but appreciate the fact that we have the right to do so if needed, and with more than a single shot muzzleloading rifle or a double-barreled shotgun. As an intelligent person, Dan Thomasson needs to comprehend that criminals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abide by laws limiting magazine capacities. Mr. Thomasson claims that the Second Amendment has been misinterpreted, most emphatically in 2008 by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision, which gave preference to individual rights rather than collective. How does he explain that in all the other amendments where â&#x20AC;&#x153;the right of the peopleâ&#x20AC;? appears, it has been historically defined as an individual right? Those people who believe in the collective definition need to read the Federalist Papers in order to better understand what the founders meant in the Second Amendment. Alan Scott Bellefonte

Remembering a colleague On my resume, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relatively short stint. A pit stop, if you will. I spent a total of six months at the Tribune-Democrat in Johnstown before becoming the managing editor of The Centre County Gazette. I have lots of memorable stories from my time in Flood City. I got to cover the Pittsburgh Steelers, so that made for some eventful Sunday afternoons. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing quite like covering the team you grew up cheering for. I also had several Chris Morelli is the interesting drives editor of the Centre from Cambria County Gazette. He County to Centre can be reached at County in the editor@centre wee hours of the morning. Snow, deer, accidents, burning cars, students running across I-99 â&#x20AC;Ś I pretty much saw it all during those six months. But the most memorable stories come from the people I met while I worked there. Most of you reading this have probably worked in an office setting at one time or another. Newsrooms are different. There is a camaraderie among newsroom workers that is hard to explain. I became friends with many of my co-workers during my short stint at the T-D. I keep in touch with several through email, texting, Facebook and Twitter. Through Facebook, I found out just a couple of weeks ago, that Sean Roane, the Tribâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managing editor for design and production, was very ill.


When I was there, Sean was battling cancer. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t announce it, though. In fact, had it not been for asking some questions and doing some digging, I would never have known. Sean didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain about it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t his style. I usually arrived around 4 p.m. for my shift as the Tribâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports editor. Sean was always there, poring over proofs or working on an advance section. As I walked my dinner back to the newsroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trusty refrigerator, Sean would always smile, say hello or ask how my drive was. He was a master designer. I would walk by his desk around 8 p.m. and his screen would be blank. An hour later, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have an award-winning front page designed. Not an easy task. The guy was good. Once, on deadline, my computer crashed and I lost the entire sports front. Without flinching, Sean sat down at my desk, re-booted the Mac and somehow, someway, rescued my page from cyberspace. We made deadline that night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bit of a Flood City miracle, if you ask me. Many nights, after we went to press, Sean and I would sit and discuss music and sports. He was an amateur musician who played some open mic nights around Johnstown. He was also a New York Giants fan stuck in the heart of Steeler Nation. And while the G-men were his No. 1 team, I suspect that the Steelers were gaining ground, especially after he snagged some tickets to check out a game at Heinz Field. Often times, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the last two in the newsroom. As the presses rolled, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sit and examine the Tribâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlines and cutlines, making sure that everything looked good for the newsstand and doorsteps the next day. Sean was a perfectionist. If something didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look right or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

It may not have been popular among the pressroom workers, but Sean didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. He was going to get it right. Many nights, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d play music on YouTube while we checked the pages. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily recognize or like all the music he played, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have asked for better company. Last Friday, I learned that Sean had lost his battle with cancer. He put up a valiant fight, but it was too much for him to overcome. Within minutes of his passing, I received several text messages from my Johnstown family informing me of the news. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a chance to visit with Sean before he passed. However, I do have the memories of my six months at the Trib. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d leave the newsroom at night, I would hit the lights and Sean would often be there, listening to his tunes in the dark, the whir of the presses rolling in the background. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d smile, wave goodbye and then resume listening. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember him. Rest in peace, my friend.

Snakehead outbreak raises alarm By DALE McFEATTERS Scripps-Howard News Service

About 10 years ago, a fisherman trying his luck in a pond in a distant Maryland suburb of Washington hauled out a truly disgusting-looking fish. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not speaking here as a professional ichthyologist, mind you; if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a fish scientist or a seafood chef, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no such thing as disgusting. It was the first confirmed sighting of the northern snakehead, an invasive species from Asia, although biologists suspect they had been hiding out in the shallows of the Potomac River for two years before that. By conventional standards, the northern snakehead was ugly verging on repulsive. They have small, flat heads with a mouth full of serious teeth; they are unbelievably slimy; can slither across dry land to find more salubrious surroundings; and, in the words of Virginia state fisheries biologist John Odenkirk, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will eat anything that swims past their head.â&#x20AC;? They can grow to be 3 feet long, and they breed like crazy. In most jurisdictions, it is illegal after catching one to do what would seem to come naturally â&#x20AC;&#x201D; throw it back. Snakeheads have to be reported to the state fisheries department and then you have to take them home with you. Snakeheads hibernate in the mud during cold months, emerging from the muck when the water temperature gets into the 50s. Then they come out of hiding and resume their lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work of depleting the stocks of more desirable game fish, which they do by swallowing them whole. For all their fearsome teeth, snakeheads donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really chew their prey. They seem remarkably easy to catch. Fisheries biologists on the Potomac were pulling them in at the rate of 10 an hour. The snakeheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural indolence and its diet of its betters in the fish world make for a firm, mild, white meat that is supposedly very tasty. (Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word for it.) Snakehead meat is popular around the Chinese New Year, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made into a stew reputed to have therapeutic properties, and, indeed, The New York Times reports that a fishmonger catering to an Asian clientele being arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport with 353 live snakeheads. Unfortunately, the snakehead is remarkably peripatetic and recently cropped up in a lake in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Park. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a matter of time before they follow flying Asian carp into the inviting ponds of Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf courses and Midwestern rivers. Clearly now is the time for action, and it comes just as

news breaks that the rhinoceros is now extinct in Mozambique, thanks to poachers who kill the animals for their horns, which are highly valued in Asia and China for their supposedly medicinal and aphrodisiac qualities. The State Department, the CIA and the Armed Forces Radio in the Far East should start spreading the story that U.S. scientists have discovered an ingredient in the northern snakehead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but only those residing in North America â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that makes male and female Viagra look like baby aspirin. Smuggle a suitcase load of snakeheads back to Shanghai and you and your friends will be engulfed in sexual bliss. But, remember, only North American snakeheads. Accept no substitutes. With the snakeheads gone, for the sake of ecological balance we could release some rhinos in the outer Maryland suburbs. Rhinos are solitary and shy; being vegetarians, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat all the desirable game fish; they breed very slowly; and as long as they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start dealing drugs in bad neighborhoods, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lot safer here than in Mozambique.

From questions about IRA rollovers and savings options, to protection against unexpected loss or disability, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll help guide you through lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertainties, so you can retireâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with conďŹ dence.

HEALTH & WELLNESS Abnormal clotting can cause serious problems From Gazette staff reports


MOUNT NITTANY Medical Center recently completed Phase II of its newly-renovated emergency department.

Mount Nittany Medical Center expansion completed, emergency department opens From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mount Nittany Medical Center has completed Phase II of its newly renovated 56,000 square-foot emergency department, which is now fully open to the public. Phase I of the new emergency department opened to the public in July of 2012. Phase II opened on April 23 of this year. Completing the emergency department in two phases allowed for continuous care of patients throughout the construction process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emergency department is truly a community asset. Rather than just building a bigger facility to ac-

commodate the growing number of emergency department patients in our area, we chose to build a better facility. Our new emergency department features an innovative design, new technologies and special amenities to offer the best care for our community,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Theodore Ziff, medical director of the emergency department. The total emergency department expansion project includes 48 new private rooms with private restrooms, a dedicated sexual assault nurse examiner room, two trauma bays, a rooftop helicopter pad, consulting room, four private patient rooms de-

signed for patients with behavioral health needs, Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playroom (a designated play and waiting area for children and their families) and a new MRI suite. In addition, the pod design of the new emergency department provides physicians and nurses with easy access and visual connection to each room, ensuring efficiencies in the care of patients. In 2011, more than 50,000 patients received care at Mount Nittany Medical Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency department. Mount Nittany Health deemed the renovated and expanded facility a priority for the region.

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Abnormal blood clotting can cause serious consequences if not managed effectively. The Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic at Mount Nittany Medical Center provides this management with integrated services that attend to patient needs in a single visit. With one stop at the clinic, patients are evaluated for anticoagulant drugsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side effects, tested for INR levels, and given results within a matter of seconds. For people taking blood thinners, it is important to make sure that the medication is working properly to avoid serious complications. To help ensure safe treatment, a healthcare provider will draw a blood sample and test how long it takes the blood to clot. This measurement is then compared with an established average, the International Normalized Ratio. The Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic functions efficiently thanks in large part to the specially trained pharmacists who have ample experience in treating patients taking anticoagulant drugs. This integrated approach at the clinic provides several advantages, including opportunities for the pharmacists to address individual patient needs. They can also efficiently monitor patient problems, and provide the environment for more patient management for their own condition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pharmacists are some of the finest people I have met. They are extremely knowledgeable and they all genuinely care,â&#x20AC;? said Bruce Rutter, a patient at the clinic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really feel that the pharmacists are very caring and capable.â&#x20AC;? The Anticoagulation Clinic is planning a move to provide more space and facilitate an increase in services. Because blood clots can be an issue for cancer patients, the Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion is slated to house the Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic in its beneficial and convenient environment. For more information on the services provided by the Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic at Mount Nittany Medical Center, visit

Workshop set for May 14 From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Look Good â&#x20AC;Ś Feel Better workshop will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on May 14 at the Patton Township Building. A free workshop for women with cancer, participants will learn how to care for skin and nail changes, and cope with hair loss using wigs, scarves and other head coverings. Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register call (800) 227-2345.

Therapists focus on sports-related injuries


From Gazette staff reports PLEASANT GAP â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Occupational and physical therapists from HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital recently attended a continuing education course called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sports-Related Injuries in the Young Athlete: Evidence-Based Treatment and Prevention.â&#x20AC;?

Telemedicine program improves patient care and satisfaction From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — Mount Nittany Health joins a rising number of health care facilities nationwide in implementing a robust telemedicine program aimed at improving patient care and satisfaction, as evidenced by two programs that rolled out in the fall — TeleBurn and TeleStroke. Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Burn Recovery Center in Allentown and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, provide the service for free, in part because doing so decreases the number of patients coming to their facilities from other areas who could be treated locally, a real cost savings. The telemedicine program is doubly beneficial for patients because it facilitates diagnosis and treatment at a hospital close to home — Mount Nittany Medical Center. However, if a condition or injury warrants it, the proper stabilization can occur so that the patient can be readily transferred to the burn center or to Hershey Medical Center. With the consult made available through telemedicine, referral criteria can easily be determined. Lehigh Regional Health Network’s Burn Center serves more than 60 mostly rural hospitals through the TeleBurn program. According to Brian Joho, burn program coordinator at the center, the program continues to grow because health providers in rural areas typically do not see a wide range of burns that could include complications. TeleBurn provides them with the expertise needed for diagnosis and recommended treatment for uncommon injuries. Jenna Evans, RN, emergency department, says implementation of TeleBurn is going as planned, as exemplified by a recent event. “We had a young man come into the Medical Center with burns on the palms of both of his hands,” she relates. “The emergency department physician ordered a TeleBurn consult and we sent the images of the burns to Lehigh Burn Center. The doctor at Lehigh then spoke to the physician at Mount Nittany Medical Center. This happened on a Friday. Through the consult, treatment was begun at the medical center and (the patient) was able to stay at his home for the weekend. On Monday, he went to the burn center as an outpatient, in order (for the Lehigh team) to monitor the progress. From there, he was discharged and is recovering well.” TeleStroke operates in a way similar to TeleBurn. Realtime remote audiovisual access provides a neurological consult with a stroke neurologist or neurosurgeon. More than 230 people are seen for stroke each year at Mount Nittany Medical Center. The emergency department physician determines which of these cases will incorporate TeleStroke.


MOUNT NITTANY Medical Center is employing telemedicine programs — TeleBurn and TeleStroke. Mount Nittany rolled out the programs last fall. “The process, which includes ‘Skyping,’ is like having a physician in the room,” according to Jen Vance, RN, stroke coordinator. “The camera provides the eyes of the physician — the speaker, the ears. The attending providers, who are in the room with the patient, are the arms and legs.” “Time is important when it comes to treatment of stroke,” explains Vance. “By using TeleStroke, our ED physicians are roughly 10 minutes away from a neurological consult.” A consult through TeleStroke can aid in the timeliness of

a diagnosis and treatment. With just a three-hour window for administering tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), which can be done at Mount Nittany Medical Center, every second counts. “Our telemedicine program is providing quality care for our patients locally,” said Patty Watson, vice president of nursing and chief nursing officer. “The telemedicine program is an evidence-based practice that meets patients’ needs, whenever possible, here at home.”

PSU to invest $20 million to grow World Campus From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State’s online campus, the World Campus, is poised to more than triple students enrolled in online education programs from 12,000 to 45,000 within the next decade. The university is committing $20 million over five years from World Campus revenues toward this new expansion goal. Penn State President Rodney Erickson announced the goal in a letter to the university community on April 29. This initiative is designed to help more people earn degrees by providing exceptional academic and co-curricular experiences for students who need the flexibility of online education while working and managing multiple responsibilities. By reinvesting revenue in the World Campus, Penn State intends to fund new technologies, provide additional faculty capacity, enhance student services, support research and development initiatives, and improve infrastructure and marketing efforts. This year, World Campus revenue is projected to total $90 million. “Since the mid-1990s, Penn State has led the development of a sustainable model for delivering online education, emphasizing high-quality programming and superior student services,” said Erickson. “Today’s rapid advances in technology, coupled with cultural shifts, are changing the way students engage. With this new goal, Penn State is reaffirming its commitment to meet the needs of current and future students through online and hybrid programs, in addition to resident education programs.” The World Campus opened its virtual doors in January 1998 with 41 students enrolled in five academic programs. By 2012, nearly 12,000 students from every state, the District of Columbia, three territories and 72 countries were enrolled. Its target audience is adult part-time learners at a distance. The World Campus now offers more than 90 graduate, undergraduate and professional education programs. This year, the World Campus is celebrating 15 years of providing online education, marking one more milestone in Penn State’s distinguished distance education history, which began in 1892 with a correspondence course for farmers delivered by mail.

PENN STATE will invest $20 million over five years to grow the World Campus, the university’s online education program. Wayne Smutz, executive director of the World Campus and associate vice president for Academic Outreach, pointed out that “What sets Penn State’s online education model apart is that it is embedded within the University, is an integral part of the academy, with strong relationships with University colleges and campuses, and involves the same faculty who teach on campus. The result for all students is a Penn State degree, regardless of how it is earned.” Enrollment in online education continues to grow, according to a Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) survey, which found more than 6.7 million students — almost a third of higher education students — were taking at least one online course in 2011.


Sloan-C is a professional society for elearning practitioners. “What makes the World Campus unique among higher education providers of online education is the motivation and enthusiasm of Penn State and its faculty and staff to reach out to students who cannot come to campus to learn and provide a high-quality online pathway to education,” said Frank Mayadas, senior adviser to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and founding president of Sloan-C. The Sloan Foundation provided nearly $4 million to fund creation of the World Campus. To enable student success in the online learning environment, the World Campus provides an array of support services, including admissions counseling, academic

advising, library resources, tutoring, exam proctoring, financial aid, scholarships, transfer of credits, credit for prior learning, career services and technical support. Students also can access podcasts, webinars, town halls, student blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube videos, Flickr photo galleries and more. The World Campus’ student engagement opportunities won the 2012 Distance Education Innovation Award from the National University Technology Network. As Penn State expands its online offerings, it will take advantage of faculty research funded by its new Center for Online Innovation in Learning. In addition, the University is partnering with Coursera to offer five massive open online courses.

YOUNG SCHOLARS of Central PA will again host a four-week summer program. It is open to students from the Centre Region.

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State University and National Taiwan Normal University have developed a collaboration to establish the Advanced Center for the Study of the Learning Sciences. Under a proposal funded by the Taiwan National Science Council, center researchers will devise ways for educators to keep pace with rapidly changing information and technology in society. Behavioral and neuro-cognitive research will serve as focal points for the center’s work. The center has several goals, including enhancing research capabilities, cultivating young scholars, recruiting outstanding researchers from the world and strengthening industry-university cooperation, with the ultimate goal of establishing this center as a world-renowned center in the field of the learning sciences, with special emphasis on language acquisition, scientific literacy, science learning and learning technology. The work on language mastery and scientific literacy will have important educational and societal implications for communicating across cultures, analyzing and integrating information, and developing knowledge systems. Enhanced knowledge systems allow learners to excel in their efforts to perform comprehension, commu-

nication, cooperation and coordination tasks, and to resolve problems in various environments. An important emphasis for the center will be Chinese language learning. There is an increasing demand for Chinese language education within the United State as well as in the globalized world. By combining the fields of neuro-cognitive research and behavioral aspects of world language education, the center will make contributions to the learning sciences. Research activities will take place at both NTNU and Penn State, and the institutions will develop collaborations with related research centers in Asia, Europe and the United States. The ultimate goal is to develop into a top transnational research center worldwide with multiple dimensions, including a theoretical framework and applications at multiple sites. Penn State and NTNU are sister universities. In addition to the approximately 40 researchers at NTNU who are Penn State alumni, researchers from both universities will have regular and extensive exchange visits. More than 20 faculty members from NTNU and a similar number of scholars from Penn State are contributing to center activities, including faculty members from the College of Education, the College of the Liberal Arts, and the College of Information Sciences and Technology.

Centre County Library contest celebrates young authors From Gazette staff reports BELLEFONTE — More than 120 people attended the 28th annual Centre County Library Young Authors Contest awards ceremony, which honored and celebrated the literary achievement of children throughout the county. A total of 33 young writers in first through sixth grades won awards for their original story submissions and had segments of their books read aloud to the audience. The contest, which encourages children throughout Centre County to hone their creativity and writing skills, is a testament to the hard work and imagination of children from local school districts and homeschool communities and the adults who encourage them. The ceremony, held at the Bellefonte Area High School auditorium, was the culmination of months spent writing and editing for the more than 200 children who submitted their books in March. Since then, a panel of local judges worked to choose first, second, third, and honorable mention winners from each grade level. In addition to the medal conferment and a live reading of the winning stories, the ceremony also featured guest speaker Kieryn Nicolas. Nicolas, a local young adult novelist, whose published books include “Flawless Ruins,” “Rain and Poison Ivy,” spoke about how she became a writer and why storytelling matters. She offered encouragement to the young authors in attendance and stressed the importance of public libraries. “Stories are trains that take you places,” Nicolas said. “And libraries are like Grand Central Station. You can go to any destination, and those destinations are available to everyone.” Nicolas also told the audience that stories have power, and that young writers can change the world with their storytelling. After she spoke to the crowd, Nicolas stayed onstage to deliver the medals to each winner and later answered questions and autographed posters. In coming weeks, the Centre County Library will have the first place stories bound and placed into the permanent collection, so that anyone with a valid Centre County library card can check them out and enjoy them. Karen Drosnes, president of the Centre County Library board of directors, closed the event by thanking the community for its support of the Young Author’s Contest and reminded the audience that the library and its programming is an important component to our community’s success. Drosnes also recognized the sponsorship of M&M Copy Service, Eat-n-Park, Signature Engraving, Texas Roadhouse and Weis Markets for their ongoing support of the Young Authors Contest.

Old Fort American Legion hosts Scout Day By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — American Legion Post 779 in Old Fort hosted a Scout Day celebrating years of tradition for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts on April 27. The event featured games, a dessert cook-off, pony rides, activities and displays by several Centre County scout troops. The displays highlighted the troops’ many activities. An ambulance from the Penns Valley EMS, a fire truck from the Centre Hall Fire Company, and a police car from the Pennsylvania State Police were on hand for scouts to examine. Personnel from the EMS, fire company and police demonstrated their equipment to the scouts and parents. Trooper Benjamin Clark had Cub Scouts sit in the back seat of his police cruiser. “I hope I won’t see you there again,” he joked. He also showed the scouts a shield used in riot control and a battering ram used to break down doors.

The guest speaker for Scout Day was Rep. Glenn Thompson. Thompson has been involved in scouting since his childhood. As a youth, he was a member of Boy Scout Troop 52 in Walker Township. He became an Eagle Scout and as an adult served as a scoutmaster for nearly 30 years. He also served as president of the Juniata Boy Scout Council. Thompson had praise for the scouting program. “It is a great program for girls and boys, based on principles and values that will stay with them their entire lives,” he said. He compared the skills and values learned in scouting to a toolbox equipped with the tools needed for excelling in adult life. Thompson said that when he decides how to vote on legislation, he asks himself four questions — what is my duty to God, country, others and myself? “These values are related to both the Girl Scout and Boy Scout promises,” said Thompson. He urged visitors to take anything they learned about scouting back into their communities and spread the word

Colyer resident receives outstanding alumni award By SAM STITZER

STATE COLLEGE — The Outstanding Visiting Alumni Committee from the State College Area School District honored Sharon Spicer Pearson with an award at a brunch on May 5 at the Mount Nittany Elementary School. Pearson is the daughter of Roy and Shelia Spicer, of Boalsburg. She lives in Potter Township with her husband, Chris. Sharon Lee Spicer, Class of 1968, grew up in State College and attended school in the State College Area School District. She has spent the last 27 years working for the SCASD’s Special Education Department in the north building. Pearson has been in the hospital and rehab for most of the last two years. She suffered a heart attack, then a stroke, and now relies on an external heart assist pump to survive. She has recently been residing in a rehabilitation home in Duncannon. In 1978, she married Chris Pearson in London. They lived in England for five years prior to moving back to Centre County. Upon their return to Centre County, Sharon and Chris built most of their home themselves. Their home is set among the trees and meadows across from Colyer Lake near Centre Hall. In her special education work, she once worked one-on-one with a student who had serious difficulties in accessing the world around her. Pearson was one of the first in Pennsylvania to utilize assisted speech devices. It was through her persistence that this young woman received the groundbreaking technology that she needed. Pearson was responsible for helping to establish The Wild Dream Team, a group of students with disabilities who, with her guidance, achieved goals far beyond conventional expectations. She has helped the team raise funds for, and assist many community organizations, including giving of $7,000 to the Kosovo refugees, $11,000 to the victims of the Sept. 11 tragedy and to significantly help the children affected by Hurricane Katrina. The Wild Dream Team is known for taking trips all across the country and even to London. The students, with Pearson’s help, raised the money for these trips themselves. Pearson’s greatest contribution is her work as a teacher. Students who thought they could not learn or achieve, let alone excel, did so because of their time spent with her. She has been a valued member of the SCASD Special Education Department. Pearson has been a member of Kiwanis and has been the State High Key Club advisor for more than 20 years, helping students to gain a love of giving back to the community and the world. She organized

the State College Area High School AllNight Volleyball Tournament, sponsored by Key Club. The first year it was run out of Room 8 and every year since then it has grown. This year there were 150 players and approximately 20 volunteers. The tournament raised over $18,000. Since 1997, Pearson has worked as one of the State College Area High School thespian advisors. During her tenure with the thespians, she was the producer and costume designer, tapping into her creativity and love of fashion and design. She was instrumental in taking student productions to The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, and to the International Thespian Society Festival in Lincoln, Neb. Pearson worked at Easter Seals during the summers of 1985 to 2001 and was in charge of the summer camp programming for preschoolers through high school-aged children with disabilities. Pearson’s many hours of work and attention to her interest in Easter Seals and their High Five Club and Summer Camp Program, the Kiwanis Club of State College created a directed fund in 1998. The Sharon Pearson Endowment Fund was targeted with a goal of $10,000 in honor of Pearson bringing so much to the Easter Seal Society and the children they work with. Additionally, Pearson was honored in 2001 when she received the PSEA Education Support Professional of the Year Award. Sunday’s brunch was opened with musical tribute, “On My Way” sung by sisters Ashley, Courtney and Kelsey Lope, all graduates of State High. A welcome by Dr. Robert O’Donnell, superintendent of SCASD schools was next, followed by the award and fund description by retired administrator, Cam Bausch. The award was presented to Pearson by retired administrator, Ron Pifer. After an invocation by Rev. Carl Campbell, brunch was served to the crowd of about 150 people. Following brunch, the attendees moved to the school auditorium, where Pearson was seated onstage. The crowd was entertained by several musical numbers from Broadway shows, such as “Carousel,” “The Wiz,” “Pirates of Penzance,” and others which were performed by the State College Area High School thespians. Award committee member Grace Strong presented Pearson with a State College Area High School sweatshirt, with instructions to “wear it proudly.” Libby Mortensen presented Pearson with a memory book filled with written congratulations and well wishes from Pearson’s many friends, associates and former students. “I am very honored, and I absolutely love my job,” Pearson said. “For me it’s a privilege to go to State College High School every day and do something with students.”

Rotarian volunteers clean up Lederer Park From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — Members of the Rotary Club of State College gathered to help prepare Lederer Park on University Drive for the spring and summer seasons. The club, which normally meets Thursday afternoons at Damon’s, has volunteered at the park for many years. Club president Mark Whitfield noted that the Downtown Rotary Club has long had a special affection for Lederer Park. “Eugene Lederer was one of our earliest and most distinguished members,” he explained. “He was a great gentleman whose sunny disposition was appreciated by everyone in our club.” Together with his mother, Lucy Kemerer Lederer, Eugene donated the land for the

park to the Centre Region Parks and Recreation. “Gene was a special person,” said Rotarian Rev. Carl Hill. “Members of the club were honored to be introduced by Gene.” Lederer was a longtime member of the Centre County Bar Association, an accomplished painter, sculptor and musician. “He was truly a Renaissance man. The club is honored to keep his memory alive by volunteering each year in the park that bears his name,” Whitfield said. The Centre County Foundation has established the Lederer Fund, stating, “Eugene W. Lederer gave to all of us through the arts, numerous civic activities, and, especially, by his gift of Lederer Park. His final gift to the community was a bequest to the foundation to support its continued operation.”

HOPE Fund holds third annual gala fundraiser By SAM STITZER

POTTERS MILLS — The Penns Valley HOPE Fund held its third annual Gala for HOPE at the former Henry & Company Barn in Potters Mills on April 28. The event was an evening of dancing and savoring culinary treats by caterer Bobbie Dash for the benefit of the Penns Valley HOPE Fund. The Elk Creek Café & Alehouse in Millheim donated several brews of beer for patrons to sample and enjoy. Several wines were also available. A silent auction of goods and services donated by local businesses and a cake auction were held as additional fundraisers. Heather Luse of Delectable Delights in Centre Hall donated cupcakes for the patrons. The use of the barn was donated by owner Binky Lush. Gala organizer Eva Gerhart said that about 155 reservations were made for the event, and she was pleased with the turnout, which was more than double that of the 2012 event. She thanked the six corporate sponsors for the gala, whose donations allowed 100 percent of the proceeds to be used by the HOPE Fund to help families in the Penns Valley area.

Background music for the gala was provided by a jazz ensemble composed of musicians from the Penns Valley High School Jazz Band. Alex Nepa of Local Motion Entertainment donated his time as a disc jockey. A swing dance lesson was conducted for the patrons by Kevin and Adrienne Fee of the Dance Harmony Social Dancing School, who taught the dancers some basic steps in East Coast Swing. The beautiful restored barn provided a perfect backdrop of rustic elegance for this gala event. Couples enjoyed the food, socializing, and dancing for the benefit of the Penns Valley HOPE Fund. HOPE Fund board member, T.J. Coursen addressed the patrons, thanking them and all of Penns Valley for their generous support of the charity. “This evening wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the hard work of a lot of people,” said Coursen. “These people have donated their time, and it’s fundraisers like this that are the reason the HOPE Fund can exist and do what we do.” Coursen’s wife, Kathy, also spoke. She noted that there are many ways for citizens of the area to get involved with the HOPE Fund.

Many private landowners are very interested in improving water quality but need assistance to install protective streambank fencing, forested riparian buffers, manure management practices and aquatic habitat improvements along these tributaries. ClearWaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to improve water quality within these tributaries so they also can support wild trout populations for future generations.

Moms offer their vision for a perfect Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day By DREW BALIS

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Moms come in all styles, shapes and sizes. So it makes sense that Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is far from a one-size-fits-all occasion. On the one hand, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is the same for all of us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to recognize Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special qualities and to show our appreciation for all her hard work. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big difference when it comes to the kinds of gifts our Moms want for Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. When you ask Moms how they want to spend their special day, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of variety too. Common themes include family, relaxation, and creativity, but when it comes to specifics Moms are all over the map. For State College resident Jen Pressler, a heavy package

Whether it is redeemable at a restaurant, movie theatre, clothing store, or somewhere else, Pressler is satisfied if she can treat herself at a later date. Even with the modern convenience of money on a 4b7u-3 piece of plastic, Pressler remembers the days before gift cards were an option for Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always enjoyed when my kids made me something,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very sincere.â&#x20AC;? The concept of Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day from the point of view of a mother is still relatively new to Amanda Slingerland, but the mother of two young children, both under the age of six, knows exactly what she wants come Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a relaxing morning would be great,â&#x20AC;? said Slingerland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A peaceful entrance into a day spent with my family is what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really hoping for.â&#x20AC;? While her children may not be old enough to purchase gifts yet, Slingerland thinks back to her own childhood and giving gifts to her own mother on the special day in May as a vision for what she ultimately wants when they grow up a bit more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make it personal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always more heartfelt that way. If you are going to simply buy a card, try to at least put something in it to make it your own.â&#x20AC;?

Showing off her boys, Staub added while smiling â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know someday theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have girlfriends, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be in college, and eventually all grown up, but they better show up to dinner for that one day.â&#x20AC;?

New books spotlight different kind of mom By LEANNE ITALIE Associated Press

NEW YORK — These moms curse a lot, drink to excess, reveal scary truths and draw twisted little stick figures of their kids pooping and whining relentlessly. And this Mother’s Day, they’re bringing their derelict parenting to you. The authors behind a fresh round of parenting books love their munchkins, to be sure, but there’s something about the scorched earth narrative that sells memoirish parenting books these days. Is the goal an instructional one? Inspirational? How about some advice? “No, there isn’t any. I don’t have anything. No advice. Nobody has any advice,” laughed Amber Dusick, a Los Angeles mother of two who brings us “Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures.” The book’s 50 “crappy laws of parenting” include this at No. 16: “When you sneak to the pantry to eat chocolate, you will get caught.” The swear words fly, the flavored vodka flows and husbands pay dearly, but what’s the point of dwelling on the smeared, sleep-deprived underbelly of life with kids? Even if it is just for a laugh. “We’ve opened up the dialogue,” offered Nicole Knepper, who has two kids and wrote “Moms who Drink and Swear.” “People have really found ways to be more authentic about who they are and how it affects us as parents. My mom’s generation, they did a lot of pushing down their own interests and their own personalities because they were all about the kids, and this was their job and their focus, whereas my generation (she’s 43 and lives in Plainfield, Ill.), the expectations are different. You multitask. You do it all, only nobody can do it all well.” Jill Smokler’s Scary Mommy certainly can’t. “Motherhood Comes Naturally (and other vicious lies)” is her second spin off her popular blog and parenting community at The first was “Confessions of a Scary Mommy.” The 35-year-old mom of three, including boys just 20 months apart, has noticed a difference in exactly how much filth and frustration parents are willing to reveal in the five long years since she first put up her blog. “There wasn’t this acceptance about being this sort of less-than-perfect mother, but all of a sudden it feels like that is becoming the norm rather than the exception,” said Smokler, in Baltimore, Md. “There came a tipping point where everybody just couldn’t keep up that facade anymore and there was just a backlash, and here we are.” On the dad side, Ian Frazier’s popular cursing mommy character from his columns in The New Yorker now has her own novel called “The Cursing Mommy’s Book of Days,” a diary of dereliction spread over a year of boozing, bad parenting and expletive-infused mockery of a capacitorhoarding husband named Larry. There’s this entry for Wednesday, April 13: “Yes, lying in a steaming tub with a bottle of Kahlua and ignoring the children’s knocks on the bathroom door all afternoon is

not the most mature coping strategy. So stipulated, your honor!” And there’s Adrian Kulp, the man-child who lost his job and turned his stay-at-home dad blog into a book, “Dad or Alive,” writing of his daughter after his wife went back to work: “All I had to do was move our four-month-old from one station to the next so she didn’t get bedsores. ... The idea of going outside seemed monumental.” An engineering-minded dude pair, Andy Herald and Charlie Capen, have provided an illustrated primer on cosleeping, “The Guide to Baby Sleep Positions,” complete with names for each diabolic configuration: The Stalker, the Yin and Yang and The Exorcist among them. Dusick, whose boys are 6 and 3, began blogging nearly two years ago. Her childlike drawings lend a creepy air to life with the Crappy family, including that fateful day when they all get sick. Tempers and temperatures flare, and bodily fluids fly all night, brought alive by her hollow-eyed illustrations. “It’s a healthy balance of being able to laugh at things and yet still reassure ourselves that this is normal and we still love our kids, and parenting is really hard,” she said. Knepper’s kids are 13 and nearly 9. She considers it far healthier to share the grief than do what her mother’s generation likely did: “Hide their Valium and their vodka in the linen closet, where nobody could find it.” But she acknowledges that “schtick is schtick,” especially when trying to sell books that began as blogs. Smokler’s blog has a “confessional” for anonymous commenters and she weaves some of their contributions into chapter starters. “I invited you into my home as a guest. And you brought my 2-year-old permanent markers and Play-Doh,” reads the one for “Lie (hash)4, It Takes a Village to Raise a Child.” “Next time I visit you, I’m bringing your teenage daughter condoms and crack.” In real life, her kids are 5, 7 and 9. The oldest, her only girl, is a couple years shy of the first time Smokler’s own mom washed her mouth out with a bar of soap. Smokler’s crime? Telling mom she hated her. “My daughter has told me she has hated me many, many times and I have never washed her mouth out with soap. I just roll my eyes at her, I get on my site and I say something snarky about her, and I move on,” she said. “It’s a big relief for my readers to realize that they’re not the only parents

who have ever been driven crazy by their kids.” Relief, yes, and also revelation. While her own mom never cursed, Smokler’s daughter dropped her first swear word at age 4, when a tower of blocks toppled over, her offspring making it clear, “I heard it from you.” “My parents just didn’t talk like that,” Smokler said. “It’s funny, now they do. At least my mom does now.” So what do these derelict moms want for Mother’s Day? “I’ll beg for time to curl up in bed and read for the whole day,” Knepper said. Dusick: “I would really like to sleep in.” Is that gonna happen? “Probably not.” Smokler the Scary Mommy is doing the unthinkable. “We’ll be in Disney World, so it’s sort of my anti-perfect Mother’s Day, but that’s OK.” Follow Leanne Italie on Twitter at litalie

Making himself at home Central Mountain’s Von Walker hits two home runs in rout of Red Raiders By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

BELLEFONTE — Central Mountain’s Von Walker certainly likes to visit Bellefonte. The 2013 Penn State football recruit came around last September and piled up 505 yards of total offense against the Red Raiders, including 362 yards rushing, in the Wildcats 50-14 victory at Rogers Staduim. Then on Monday afternoon, Walker showed up with the Central Mountain baseball team and smashed three hits, two of which were long home runs, and drove in five runs to lead Central Mountain to a non-league, 13-4 win over the Red Raiders. Walker connected with a tworun shot in the first inning that gave CM its initial lead, and then, just as Bellefonte was beginning to mount some offense and creep back, shut the door on the Raiders in the sixth with a threerun rainbow that put the game out of reach at 13-3. For Walker, though, it was all simply part of the game. “I think we were just playing ball out there,” he said, “and I was just swinging. There really wasn’t anything special about it. It’s just baseball. At the beginning of the season I wasn’t so hot, but sometimes it just comes on and you have to keep your head and focus when you’re at the plate.” For Bellefonte, those swings by Walker and his teammates were major problems. Walker’s

first inning homer was just the beginning of a five-run outburst that put the Raiders in a big hole from the very beginning of the game.

ing pitcher Clayton Butler. “We wanted to make sure we were spotting the ball very well against a team like that,” Bellefonte coach Jeremy Rellinger

move the ball like that.” To its credit, down 9-0, Bellefonte began to quiet the Central Mountain bats and show signs of its own offense coming to life.

TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette

BELLEFONTE’S DAN ROAN puts the tag on Central Mountain’s Clayton Butler during Monday’s game in Bellefonte. Central Mountain won the game, 13-4. Central Mountain added another run in the second on an RBI single by Cayden Stover, and followed with a three-spot in the fourth inning that made the score 9-0 before Bellefonte was able to manage a hit against CM’s start-

said. “They’re going to work the plate consistently in their own benefit. It’s just a matter of us hitting our spots, and we started to do that after a little bit. But they’re a good hitting ball club, and you have to expect them to

The Raiders scored two in the bottom of the fourth inning on a line-drive, two-run double by Andrew Stover that scored teammates Taylor Butts and Ethan White. Bellefonte added another run

in the fifth inning on a double by Taylor Smith that was followed with a double by Dan Roan. The Raiders proceeded to load the bases in the inning and were in position to cut deeply into the CM lead, but Butler was able to strike out White to end the inning and the threat. “Keep it positive, and keep fighting,” Rellinger said about his team’s attitude. “No matter what the situation is, keep your head up and keep plugging away.” After narrowly escaping the potential Bellefonte rally, Central Mountain struck back in the sixth. Dylan Kerstetter was hit by a pitch to open the inning, and then Luke Wise reached with a single to center field. That brought up Walker. After taking two pitches, Walker lofted the third high and far over the left field fence for a three-run homer that essentially sealed the win for the Wildcats and sent Bellefonte to its seventh loss of the season. Despite the loss, the Raiders will not be able to dwell on it very long. They get right back into Mountain League action with six games in the next 10 days, and Rellinger is looking forward to a strong finish to the season from his team. “We need to play efficient defense,” he said, “and pick that up right where we started. And stay positive in game situations. We need to stay focused and stay positive. That’s what I look for at all times, but especially at crunch time.”

High drama Penn State softball squad wins a nailbiter in front of its largest crowd ever By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

UNIVERSITY PARK — There’s no better motivator in sports than controversy. For the Penn State softball players, coming down the stretch in a season where things regularly broke against them, another tough call was just what they needed to get them going in Sunday’s Senior Day game against No. 15 Nebraska. Down by two runs to the Cornhuskers’ best pitcher, Emily Lockman, PSU’s Alyssa Sovereign hit a two-out, line-drive RBI single to center field to bring the Lady Lions to within one run in the bottom of the fourth inning. But that run was taken off the board when the umpires, who originally called it a hit, changed their minds and ruled than center fielder Jordan Bettiol caught the ball and Sovereign was out. Instead of being deflated by the call, the Lady Lions showed they had more where that came from. Still down by two, they loaded the bases in the fifth and second baseman Lauren Yao cleared them off with a line drive double to left-center field that gave PSU its first lead of the game. Then winning pitcher Marissa Diescher, in a remarkable relief appearance, shut down the Huskers and secured the dramatic, 3-2 Penn State win in front of the largest crowd ever at Beard Field. Yao, a senior from Los Angeles, fought off an incredible 16

pitches in that at bat before she saw the one she liked, and her blast lifted the Lady Lions to their 15th win of the season and fourth in the last six games. “We knew that the ball was a trap in center field,” Penn State coach Robin Petrini said, “and so I pulled the team together and said, ‘Look, we have not gotten a single call. It is us against the other team and the umpires and we have got to take control of this game.’ And the kids went out and did that. “For them to fight, because they have been fighting all year, and for them to come up with a reward, that’s the biggest part. For them to fight and overcome all the adversity we’ve faced all year, and come out and play like that two days in a row, that just shows a lot of character.” Things did not begin well for Penn State in the game. Nebraska scored a run in the first inning on singles by Taylor Edward and Brooke Thomason and then a sacrifice fly by Courtney Breault. The Huskers scored another in the third on a single by Gabby Banda and a double off the center field wall by Edwards that put the score at 2-0. All the while, Lockman kept the Penn State bats silent and allowed only one hit, to Sovereign, through three innings. Then in the bottom of the fourth, Kailyn Johnson led off with a single. She was sacrificed to second by Riena Furuya, but Lockman then struck out Macy Jones for the second out, bring-

ing up Sovereign. Sovereign’s liner seemed to hit the ground in front of Bettiol, and the home-plate umpire immediately signaled hit, but the Nebraska coaches protested and the umpires had a lengthy meeting in the infield. The call was then changed — Sovereign was out, no run, and the inning was over. “The goal is to get it right,” Petrini said, “and I have no problem with them trying to get it right. One of them must have thought they saw it.” Penn State, however, shook off the call and came right back in the fifth inning. Kasie Hatfield led off with a single and was sacrificed to second by Alyssa Renwick. Pinch hitter Liz Presto then singled to left, putting runners on first and second for hard-hitting Cassidy Bell, who was quasi-intentionally walked to load the bases. Yao followed with her double and cleared the bases. “It was an inside pitch,” Yao said. “She was throwing me a good amount of inside pitches, so I was expecting it. And then when she did, I just killed it. I knew that with two strikes I had to swing at anything close. “And with Senior day, and my parents were here, and a huge crowd, I was just happy to get it done.” Now, with the Lions up by a run, all eyes turned to Diescher. The sophomore came into the game with an 0-6 record and an ERA of over 10. But she pitched five tough innings against the

Huskers, not giving up a run and allowing only three hits and two walks. “I just had to attack the batters,” Diescher said. “I knew that I couldn’t give up many walks because that has hurt me in the past. So I just had to attack the batters and kept throwing low. “I do better with the pressure on. I seem to throw more strikes that way.” Diescher also drew the praise of coach Petrini. “Diescher pitched the way that I know she is capable of. I know she hasn’t done it in the past, but I’ve been bringing her in in pressure situations in the past couple of weeks. “This game when she came

off, I said, ‘I need another inning from you,’ and she went out and gave me another inning, but this time when she came back, she said, ‘I want the ball. Leave me in.’ And I said, ‘OK.’ So if a kid has that kind of a commitment, let’s go with it.” Good choice. Diescher shut out Nebraska over the final two innings and nailed down the PSU victory. “It felt great,” Diescher said. “I’m very, very happy for the seniors, especially Lauren (Yao) because she got that big hit, and all the defense cleaning up those ground balls, because the win would not have been possible without them.”

State High rips 14 hits in rout of Red Land, 8-3 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

STATE COLLEGE — Practice makes perfect. Or, in the case of the State College softball team, practice makes perfect hitters. According to head coach Rick Hall, the Lady Little Lions have been working extremely hard on their approach to hitting, and that work is beginning to pay off in a big way. The latest quarry for the State College hitters was Red Land on Tuesday afternoon at Community Field. The Little Lions slashed out 14 hits, including four doubles and a triple, as they avenged an earlier season 4-2 loss to the Lady Patriots with an 8-3 Mid-Penn Conference victory. Seven SC batters had at least one hit in the game with Sharayn Simco leading the way with three hits that included two singles and a double. She was followed by Allie Baney, Jess Henderson, Laura Harris, and Megan Robert who all had two hits each while Simco and Robert each had two RBIs. Combined with the 17 hits

and 11 runs the Little Lions ran up against Altoona last Friday, State College now has 31 hits and 19 runs in its last two games alone. “When you do five hitting stations the day before and you get on the kids about focus,” State College coach Rick Hall said, “it’s amazing what they can do when they listen. That’s two games in a row where we’ve had double-digit hits between Altoona and here. It was really nice to see and it’s building confidence with each kid at the plate. “A lot of our kids were pulling off the ball where the right shoulder was coming out. We’ve been focusing on driving the ball up the middle, and if you look at most of our hits, right-center field, left-center field, up the middle, to me that’s evidence of what we are teaching.” The recipient of all this hitting was Henderson who pitched a neat four-hitter and didn’t give up a run until the sixth inning — when SC was already ahead by five runs. The Little Lions added three more in the bottom of the sixth that

made the score 8-1 and put the game in the win column for Henderson. “I felt powerful,” Henderson said. “I felt more confident than I have in the last couple of weeks. It felt really good, and it helped to have my team play so well behind me.” In the seventh inning, as a light rain was beginning to fall, Henderson did surrender two runs on two hits and a fielder’s choice, but Red Land never really threatened SC’s lead and the Little Lions picked up their ninth win of the season. “I thought Henderson threw her best game of the year,” Hall said. “I have been really careful with her all year long. You know, we are 9-6, and we’d probably have another three or four wins if I had pitched her every game, but I wasn’t going to do that with her (injury) situation. I’m also going to make sure she’s fresh for playoffs.” And playoffs are already on the minds of Hall and his team. “I try to gear this program toward districts,” Hall said. “I try to get these kids playing their best ball come playoff time.”

Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top pick has a ton of potential As soon as Jarvis Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name was called during the first round of the NFL Draft, the speculation began. Will the linebacker â&#x20AC;&#x201D; picked 17th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; start this season? Will he be the guy to eventually replace James Harrison as the physical leader of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense? Can he help restore the nastiness associated with Pittsburgh linebackers while adding a quicker step to a pass rush, which has slid off in recent years? At least for now, the Shawn Curtis Steelers think so. Judgcovers Pittsburgh sports for the ing by the fact that Centre County Jones sported No. 95 Gazette. Follow during minicamp exhim on Twitter ercises this past week@shawncurtis430. end, the team expects great â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and nasty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things from Jones, who was projected to go much higher in the draft before a disappointing 40-yard dash caused his draft stock to fall a bit. Jones also knows that his pedigree and the expectations that come with it donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t translate into immediate stardom in the Steel City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of hard work. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fresh out of college,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my dream, but any way I can help my team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a starter or not, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to come out here every day and just give it my all. We still have a lot of time for that. We are still early in the offseason and I have a lot of stuff to catch up on to even be worried about starting right now.â&#x20AC;? Any Steelers fan with a working knowledge of how to navigate YouTube has likely watched a ton of highlights of Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; playing days at Georgia. If the SEC is the end-



all, be-all of college football, Jones certainly showed that he belonged during his two seasons in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;silver britches.â&#x20AC;? In fact, recent comments in most videos come from Steelers fans who are excited to see him in the Black and Gold. (Once you weed through the namecalling and poorly spelled, profanity-laced tirades against the Steelers, Georgia and other commenters.) Oh, and Georgia ran a 3-4 defense. That works well for the Steelers, who also line up in a 3-4. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that Jones already has the schemes memorized, but he might be further ahead than other linebackers who may have been drafted into the Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of the same stuff but with different terminology,â&#x20AC;? Jones said â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do it a little different than we did in college. The concept, I kind of get it. I think our coaches are great teachers in the classroom as well as coaching us on the field and putting us in the right position to make plays. I think I adjusted to it well today. I had a couple mistakes but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got time to get coached up by my coaches and learn where I need to be.â&#x20AC;? But this is Dick LeBeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. Surely, it has to be more complicated than what you were a part of in Athens, right? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh yeah, absolutely,â&#x20AC;? Jones said â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got way more time to implement the defense, study more film and study their opponent than we did in college. In college, you have to go to class, go to tutoring and all that other stuff. This is my job now so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be more complex than college. I kind of get the concepts. I played the same system, I love playing in the 3-4, I love Coach LeBeau and Coach (Keith) Butler and I think those guys are great mentors.â&#x20AC;? Jones is also aware that recent history â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the play of guys at his position over the past 40 years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will hover over his head through the good and the bad portions of his career.


JARVIS JONES took part in the Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mini-camp, which was held on May 4 in Pittsburgh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting for me but at the same time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got great mentors and great coaches and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here forever so they know what it takes. All I can do is get up under their wings, learn and keep bettering my craft and take full advantage of it.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still May. There are still four months between now and when Jones suits up in a regular-season game. That means that a lot could happen. If potential is any indication, a lot will happen once Jones suits up in a Steelers uniform.

Nittany Notes: Hardballers win in exciting fashion By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

That was close. The Penn State baseball team tied Minnesota on Sunday afternoon in the sixth inning and took the game into overtime still deadlocked. The Gophers threatened to break the game open after loading the bases in the top of the 10th, but Penn State survived without surrendering a run. The Nittany Lions then flipped things in the bottom of the inning. They loaded the bases as well, and with one out, sophomore Taylor Skerpon hit a hard ground ball to second baseman Connor Schaefbauer that had inning-ending double play written all over it. But Skerpon tore down the line and just beat the throw at first base as Steve Snyder crossed

the plate with the winning run in PSU’s exciting 4-3 victory. It was Penn State’s third walk-off win of the season. With the win, Penn State moved to 12-30 for the season, 315 in the Big Ten, and has eight games remaining in the season. Earning his second win of the season, senior Neal Herring pitched a scoreless, 2.2-inning outing. Herring held the Gophers to just two hits to close the game and moved his ERA to 4.50. Senior Steven Hill started for Penn State, threw six innings, and gave up just five hits and three earned runs. The Lions now face the final two weeks of their regular season. With eight games remaining on the schedule, Penn State will play four road games before ending the year with four straight at home. “We saw some pretty good pitching from Minnesota this

weekend,” Skerpon said, “and the bats started to come alive a little bit. We just have to keep playing, getting on base, moving runners, stealing bases and playing solid defensively.” “I have been really happy with our effort,” head coach Robbie Wine said. “Sometimes things just haven’t gone our way, but today we just went out there and reacted and it worked out for us.”

PSU LACROSSE TEAM HEADS TO NCAAS It was a wild scene as the NCAA Tournament selections were unveiled on Sunday night on ESPNU.

PSU (12-4) will host the Ivy League champion Yale Bulldogs (11-4) at the PSU Lacrosse Complex on May 11th at 2:30 p.m. “It was a gratifying feeling,” head coach Jeff Tambroni said after the bracket was announced. “Certainly after last year’s disappointment not to have gone into the playoff after all the work those guys had done, especially for our seniors last year. To see these guys celebrate the way they did tonight, we weren’t taking anything for granted this year, knowing the failure that we had last year going into it. “That elation of all their hard work and preparation is paying off. That very moment was gratifying for our coaching staff and for our team.” The winner of the Penn StateYale match will move on to a

quarterfinal matchup at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md. against the Syracuse-Bryant winner. The Orange are the overall No. 1 seed. The Nittany Lions are making their third NCAA appearance following showings in the 2003 and 2005 tournaments. In 2003, Penn State fell at Towson, while in 2005 PSU lost a 14-10 contest at Maryland. “I think just the fact that we are in,” Tambroni said, “I think that everyone was excited to see our name up there regardless whether there was going to be a seeded number next to it or a home or away game. Our guys were just super excited. “We know how good Yale is. They are very well coached. They are a very good team, and we are going to have our hands full. We are going to have to play a very good game to beat them.”



UNIVERSITY PARK — Both Penn State’s men’s and women’s lacrosse teams will be taking part in the NCAA tournament this week, with both first round games being played in State College. For the men, the tournament birth marks on the third in program history and the first in eight years. The Nittany Lions narrowly missed out on a tournament bid last year and at 12-4 will host Ivy League champion Yale at 2:30 p.m. this Saturday. A victory on Saturday would likely set up a meeting against No 1. overall seed Syracuse on the road. “It was a gratifying feeling,” third year head coach Jeff Tambroni told “Certainly after last year’s disappointment not to have gone into the playoff after all the work those guys had done, especially for our seniors last year. To see these guys celebrate the way they did tonight ... that elation of all their hard work and preparation is paying off for that very moment was gratifying for our coaching staff and for our team.” Penn State has put together one of the best seasons in school history, setting new program highs with the most wins in a single season (12), longest winning streak in a season (10), and having played the most games in a season (16, soon to be 17 in NCAA First Round) while posting its first perfect regular-season conference season of 6-0. On the women’s side Penn State will enter the tournament for the second straight season under third year head coach Missy Doherty. The women’s team put together another great season in program history that included a perfect home regular season for the first time since 1991. The Nittany Lions also defeated its highest-ranked opponent since 2007, knocking off No. 2 Florida, 16-11, in State College on March 30. As the No. 7 seed, the Nittany Lions will host MAAC champion Canisius (14-4) in first-round action at 4 p.m. on May 10.

Roster experience will help incoming quarterbacks growing hype was legitimized following an impressive Blue White performance. Overall that give Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and his quarterback plenty of options to work with during the acclimation process. Even so, the transition process will be as much about coaching as it will be roster experience. Having worked with seasoned veteran Matt McGloin in his first season at Penn State, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien will need to readjust his expectations and demands for his next, a considerably less experienced quarterback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta do a great job â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost talking to myself here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of being patient with a young quarterback and making sure that, look, the guy is going to make mistakes,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta minimize those by the play calls and how we manage the game.â&#x20AC;? And as far as making the final call, plenty of factors will be in play but having an understanding of the talent surrounding Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new quarterback will play a role in the process. In a sense, the skills needed to win the starting job donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be as sharp, given the amount of talent on the offensive side of the roster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is certainly a checklist that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to look at and evaluate every day,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The film is what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to base it off of, but also, different intangible type things, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the meeting room, me just having a gut feeling about how this guy is going to perform in front of a big crowd, things like that. But, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely somewhat of a checklist that involves the knowledge of the fact that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of veteran players around this guy. What can he do and things like that. No question about it.â&#x20AC;?


UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next quarterback may have never played a single Division I snap, but whoever ends up running Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense will at least have a stocked cabinet of talent to work with. While an experienced roster canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the throws for the young gunslingers it can make the entire process of learning the offense considerably easier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that everybody is not new is a good thing,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like, if this was last year and you had a freshman quarterback playing last year with a bunch of guys that were just learning the system for the first time, it would be very, very difficult. So, the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a year into the system and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of veteran players that played for us last year that produced and played well, I think that helps a young quarterback.â&#x20AC;? That experience can be found all over the roster. A returning Allen Robinson gives the Nittany Lions the best receiver in the conference along with Brandon Moseby-Felder who pulled down almost 500 yards of offense last year. Overall five different receivers who caught passes in 2012 will return for the 2013 campaign. Beyond that Penn State boasts what is likely the deepest and most talented tight end corps in all of college football. Kyle Carter leads that unit along with Matt Lehman and Jesse James. The trio accumulated just over 1,025 yards of receiving last year. At running back, 1,000 yard rusher Zach Zwinak returns along with a refocused and retooled Bill Belton and Akeel Lynch whose

Scoreboard project still on hold By BEN JONES

UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn State fans will need to wait a little longer for the planned scoreboard renovations, according to Penn State Office of Physical Plant Project Coordinator Jason Smith. While various aspects of the project went out to bid in April the project remains stalled until further notice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of right now the Beaver Stadium Scoreboard replacement is still on hold,â&#x20AC;?

Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bids you saw will be used to establish a more solid budget which will be on the PSU BOT agenda for July to see if we will be moving forward with the project.â&#x20AC;? The current scoreboards, installed in the summers of 2000 and 2001, were slated to be replaced by Aug. 1, 2012, according to university documents. The project originally was budgeted for $6.8 million and was to feature two large HD video boards and an accompanying speaker system.

Jai-Jagdeesh to perform From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — At 7 p.m. on May 17, The Center for Ethics & Religious Affairs will host sacred kirtan artist Jai-Jagdeesh Kaur and master percussionist Tripp Dudley for an evening of heart-opening instrumentation, soul-stirring song and chanting in the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. Jai-Jagdeesh’s journey as a singer began more than 20 years ago in a temple in India and the sound current continued all through her childhood. Between then and now, her creative spirit has walked many artistic paths ― actress, classical Indian

dancer, photographer and writer — and she said, “I find myself in perfect balance now that music has returned to the forefront.” She is deeply devoted to sharing these sacred sounds, and sings them from the center of her heart. Jai-Jagdeesh’s first album, “I Am Thine,” was a best-seller in 2011. The event is open to all, free of charge. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Please arrive early to secure a spot, as space is limited. For reservations, visit Contact or call (814) 865-6548 for more information.

UNIVERSITY PARK — Charles Garoian has continued his cultural journey through the art of art education by authoring a new book “The Prosthetic Pedagogy of Art: Embodied Research and Practice,” published by the State University of New York (SUNY) Press this year. By beginning each chapter of “The Prosthetic Pedagogy of Art: Embodied Research and Practice” with an autobiographical recalling of personal memory and cultural history, Garoian, professor of art education at Penn State, creates a differential, prosthetic space. Within these spaces are the particularities of his own lived experiences as an artist and educator, as well as those of the artists, educators, critics, historian and theorists whose research and creative scholarship he invokes. Garoian uses these autobiographical and cultural narratives related to art research and practice to explore, experiment and improvise multiple correspondences between and among learners’ own lived experiences and understandings, and those of others. In addition to this book and his scholarly articles, which are featured in leading journals on art and education, Garoian has also authored “Performing Pedagogy: Toward an Art of Politics” (1999) and co-authored “Spectacle Pedagogy: Art, Politics, and Visual Culture” (2008), both volumes published by SUNY Press. Garoian received bachelor of art and master of art degrees from California State University, Fresno, and his doctorate in education from Stanford University. He has

performed, lectured and conducted workshops in festivals, galleries, museums and university campuses in the United States and internationally. Based on the critical strategies of performance art, his teaching focuses on exploratory, experimental and CHARLES improvisational artGAROIAN making processes in visual art studio and art education courses. He was the principal organizer of the Performance Art, Culture, Pedagogy Symposium, held at Penn State in November 1996. The first of its kind, the symposium program included 42 renown performance artists, critics, historians, arts presenters and educators who examined the historical, theoretical and experiential significance of performance art in order to distinguish its pedagogy as an emerging form of arts education. In October 2000, he co-organized Performative Sites: Intersecting Art, Technology, and the Body, an international symposium at Penn State that examined the theoretical, experiential and pedagogical implications of performance artists’ works that use mechanical and electronic technologies to critique the body and its identity. The several granting agencies and programs that have supported his cultural work include the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Getty Education Institute for the Arts.

Alumna’s film earns spot at major festival From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — A short film produced by a recent Penn State alumna has been accepted into the biggest and longest running independent film festival in North America. “The Derby Girls,” produced by Jennifer Crandell, who earend her film-video degree in 2012, has been accepted in the FirstGlance Film Festival in Hollywood. FirstGlance has been ranked as one of the Top 25 Film Festival Investments by Moviemaker Magazine. In addition, films screened at the festival often find theatrical success. In the past six years, more than 90 percent of the features screened at the festival have gone on to theatrical and/or DVD release. Crandell was surprised to find “The Derby Girls” had been accepted into the festival. “I was thrilled. Honestly, I had to do a double take. I thought I was opening a rejection email only to find out it was an official selection,” Crandell said. “Because I handled all positions in the crew myself, it feels really good that festivals are paying attention to my one-woman production.” “The Derby Girls” is a short documentary about women who have a passion for roller derby, focusing on how the endeavor has affected their lives and the excitement it provides for participants. The film will be screened at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at the Chaplin Theater, located at 5300 Melrose Ave. in Hollywood. The festival runs from Friday, April 26, through Sunday, April 28. Crandell decided to make the documentary after witnessing roller derby in person. “I came to do the subject because my friend, Johanna Kirchheimer, asked me to film the State College Area Rollers’ bouts for coaching purposes. After watching these girls play for a semester, I decided to

JENNIFER CRANDELL’S “The Derby Girls” was recently accepted in the FirstGlance Film Festival in Hollywood. learn a bit more about them, what derby does for them and show that they’re not some stereotype,” Crandell said. “These are hardcore ladies with deep layers, something I really respect coming from a Marine background.” Crandell started her Penn State education after she ended her military service. As a member of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, she traveled all over the world, including stops in Australia, Djibouti, Dubai, Kuwait, Singapore and Tasmania. Attending Penn State did not decrease her intensity and passion, she just refocused it onto her class work and filmmaking. During her time at Penn State she was consistently on the dean’s list while completing two majors, film-video and integrative arts. She received a Creative Achievement Award from the College of Arts and Architecture and was accepted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Crandell also completed an internship at Nickelodeon Animation Studios. She was accepted for one of 30 spots from among a pool of 3,000 applicants for that position.

What are you really selling? ■ Where do we have a competitive advantage? What makes us different? Why do they want and need us? ■ When can we maximize our opportunities? When do they (your target audiences) want and need the solution? ■ Why aren’t we making it happen? Instead of convincing yourself a new idea might not work, ask the 5 W’s. The answers will lead to creative solutions that enhance your customer experience.

Information related to charitable gifts While it may be a difficult topic, open and honest communication about longterm care can be one of the best ways to prepare for a stress-free financial future.

CREATE A FINANCIAL AND CARE INVENTORY It is also important to update family members on the location and status of financial and care documents. Having an inventory of financial and health care documents provides family members with a roadmap to critical information. It is focused on the “where” information on financial holdings is located; not specific details about the financial holdings. The inventory is not a legal document, and it need not divulge personal or confidential details that you are not prepared to share. It should, however, enable loved ones to quickly locate where you keep your financial, legal, care and legacy records should a crisis occur. This inventory should be updated at least annually, and copies should be given to family members, a lawyer or executor — or placed in a secure location where those who might need it can access it. While each family’s inventory will differ,
