Historic Bellefonte buildings may see new life By MARJORIE S. MILLER

TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette

BIG PLANS: A developer wants to raze the the Hotel DoDe and historic Garman Theatre. According to Bellefonte Borough Manager Ralph Stewart, housing would fill the spot.

BELLEFONTE — Following a series of fires over the past few years, the Bellefonte Borough now is working with a developer to start anew where some of the town’s most prominent properties once stood. After a fire ravaged the Hotel Do De and with it, the Garman Theatre last September, the borough has put in motion a plan to assist an interested developer in obtaining the two properties for his rebuilding project. The project also includes restoring the old Cadillac building, which was destroyed by fire in late 2009. However, a few steps need to happen first. Bellefonte Borough Manager Ralph Stewart said after the Do De burned, there wasn’t a lot of activity or interest in revival. The owners decided not to rebuild, and in December 2012, they entered into a sales agreement with a prospective developer, Ara Kervandjian. Kervandjian, managing member of Progress Development Group LLC, also

now owns the old Cadillac building, which at one time housed apartments, offices and a senior living center, Stewart said. Kervandjian’s plan is to take down the Do De and Garman buildings and put up one new building that would contain workforce housing apartments. He’d also rehabilitate the Cadillac building with a similar vision, Stewart said. The problem with the plan, Stewart said, is that the Garman building is so severely damaged from the fire that it’s not employable. To remedy this, the Bellefonte Borough looked at some options and came across Pennsylvania’s Abandon and Blighted Property Act, which states an entity, such as a borough, can ask the local court for a conservator to oversee an abandoned property, Stewart said. “The Garman fit this criteria,” he said. So the borough filed paperwork, and on March 1 of this year, the Bellefonte Industrial Development Authority was hired as a conservator to oversee the Garman and some kind of resolution for

Girls on the Run aims to empower young runners By SAMI HULINGS

STATE COLLEGE — Learn to run. Learn to have fun running. Learn about nutrition and healthy eating. But most of all, learn about yourself through self-respect and empowerment. These are the lessons Girls on The Run, a positive youth development program for girls from 8 to 13 in Centre County, hopes it can teach them through interactive cur-

riculum and running after-school programs. Started in North Carolina in 1996, the organization has grown to more than 200 councils with more than 80,000 girls served every year. Jennifer Hinkle, the council director, and seven other women started the Girls on The Run Happy Valley in 2011. Currently the council offers programs to four

STATE COLLEGE — Get ready, State College: Sweet Frog is coming to town. Sweet Frog will be Centre County’s newest frozen yogurt shop. Owners Jim and Ericka Ahn are working to get the shop ready for its grand opening, which is expected to take place sometime in early to mid-June. According to Jim Ahn, the frozen yogurt shop will be different than anything Happy Valley has to offer. “There are so many options … more than anywhere else, it’s different,” he said. “It’s a great place to bring your family. If you just want to go somewhere for a small, healthy desert, we feel like we have the place.” Sweet Frog will be located in the Northland Center, along North Atherton Street. Jim Ahn said the location was appealing for a number of reasons. “I’ve lived here 20 years, Ericka has lived here all of her life. All of the growth is along North Atherton. Everything is comArts & Entertainment 23-25 What’s Happening .... 25, 26

ing this way … it’s a very good location,” he said. The Northland Center also features plenty of free parking, which is another reason Ahn liked the spot. “Parking downtown is difficult. They cater to the college kids, we’re catering to the families,” he said. Sweet Frog is a self-service frozen yogurt shop. Customers will choose the flavors they want from a bank of yogurt machines. Once the bowl is filled with yogurt, the fun begins. A toppings bar will feature over 70 items — everything from fresh fruit to cookies and candy. The fresh fruit will be just that, according to Ericka Ahn. “Our standards will be very high on the fruit,” she said. “It has to be cut fresh. Everything will be cut daily … we’re not cutting for the next day. It’s all fresh.” The Ahns are local owners. Jim Ahn owned and operated the golf store Fairways and Greens from 1993 to 2009. Jim tried his hand at financial planning before

THE CADILLAC BUILDING has been sitting vacant following a 2009 fire, which gutted the structure. Bellefonte, from page 1 it. The agreement, which doesn’t involve ownership of the building, states the conservator must hold the property for a minimum of six months, and must come up with a plan for the building, which will be submitted to court within 120 days, he said. A hearing date has been scheduled for June 20 to review the plan, Stewart said. At this time, the court will make a decision based on the IDA’s recommendation of PDG’s proposal. If the court approves the plan, PDG will be awarded the opportunity to acquire the Garman, Kervandjian said. “Nothing officially would happen until sometime in September at the earliest,” Stewart said, because the conservator must hold the property for at least six months. “It’s all tentative,” he said, “but that’s the direction we’re heading in.” Kervandjian said if PDG acquires the Garman following the June 20 court date, its plan for all three buildings would move forward in what would be called the Bellefonte Mews. The Garman and Do De would be razed and a new 21-unit apartment building would be put in their place, named the Garman House. The Cadillac would be renovated into 11 apartments and named the Cadillac House, he said. “The Cadillac House would have a large community center to serve residents of both buildings as well as offices for local support organizations to assist the community as a whole,” Kervandjian said. “The Garman House’s first floor has approximately 6,000 square feet of commercial space planned for rent.” The project has been submitted to the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency for consideration to award Bellefonte Mews tax credits to assist with the necessary debt and equity required to proceed with the project by early 2014, he said. “PDG is committed to this proposed project and what it means for Bellefonte and the community. That includes appreciating adhering to the architectural heritage of the street scape and making sure that the Garman House blends seamlessly with the neighboring buildings. We are hopeful that the momentum will continue over the next few months to make Bellefonte Mews a reality,” Kervandjian said.

deciding to get into the frozen yogurt business. His best friend is from Richmond, Va., where Sweet Frog is based. Originally, the Ahns were going to be partners in the business. Once they visited a Sweet Frog, they decided to go all in and own their own store. “We started to travel and visit them,” Ericka Ahn explained, “and we loved them.” The Ahns have visited different frozen yogurt shops across the United States. They contend that Sweet Frog has the best fro yo. “Frozen yogurt has changed since the 1980s … TCBY, places like that,” Jim Ahn said. “You can’t tell it’s yogurt and almost all of our yogurts are fat-free. We offer some non-dairys, sugar-free and some gluten-free. There should be something for everybody.” Sweet Frog is different than a traditional ice cream shop. There is no small, medium or large. No one, two or three scoops. It’s all self-serve, which means the customer controls the portions. The yogurt costs 42 cents per ounce. Because frozen yogurt is a healthy alternative to ice cream, the popularity of the snack is on the rise. “There are trends in the industry, and frozen yogurt is definitely on an uptick. I think the reason for that is because it’s delicious, even though it is healthy,” Jim Ahn explained. Sweet Frog will feature 16 flavors. Those flavors will rotate. There will be the traditional chocolate and vanilla, but look for exotic flavors such as maple bacon doughnut and root beer float. “There are over 80 different flavors that we can choose from,” Ericka Ahn said. The shop will be open seven days a week. According to the Ahns, the hours have not yet been set. For more information about Sweet Frog, visit or check out Sweet Frog State College’s Facebook page.

Spanier asks judge to drop criminal charge UNIVERSITY PARK — Former Penn State President Graham Spanier has asked a judge to drop criminal charges for his alleged mishandling of child sexual abuse reports made against Jerry Sandusky. In court documents filed Wednesday in Harrisburg, Spanier’s attorneys said he should not be charged with perjury and obstruction of justice because the prosecution used the testimony of former Penn State counsel Cynthia Baldwin. Spanier believed Baldwin was working for him at the time, and his attorneys say she violated the attorney-client privilege because of her grand jury testimony. Spanier’s attorneys said her testimony should be thrown out because she violated grand jury secrecy rules when she testified on behalf of the university — not disclosing that she was supposed to be counsel to Spanier. The attorneys also claim the child endangerment and failure to report charges should be dropped because they were filed too late. Last November, Spanier, former Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and former Penn State vice president Gary Schultz were charged with perjury, endangering the welfare of children, failure to report, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors called their actions a “conspiracy of silence.” Curley and Schultz have also asked to have their cases dismissed. None of the men has appeared in court since the charges were filed on Nov. 1.

Local veterans celebrate Memorial Day By KEVIN HORNE

STATE COLLEGE — In towns and cities across America, family and friends gather to celebrate Memorial Day. We all honor those whove given their lives to keep our country safe. For veterans though, Memorial Day takes on a more personal and special meaning. Cory Sprankle, 23, is no ordinary Penn State student. The veteran was deployed for one stint in Iraq from 2008 to 2009 before enrolling in school. “It’s nice that people make an effort to recognize veterans — both the people that died and the ones that are still serving,” Sprankle said. “I don’t think that military people get the respect they deserve sometimes so Memorial Day is a great opportunity to honor veterans.” “A simple thank you when people see troops goes a long way,” Sprankle said. “You don’t need to go out of your way, but simple things like a thank you or a letter to our military members overseas really helps a soldier.” James Washburn, 66, has been through more Memorial Days than Sprankle, but the sentiment remains the same. Washburn served in the army from 1966 to 1972 and is the president of the Moshannon Valley Veterans Memorial outside of Phillipsburg. “Memorial Day is about showing a small amount of respect for those that defend our country,” Washburn said. “It’s important to recognize what a veteran has been through and give the ones that deserve the honor, the honor.” “The general public should help veterans any way that they can,” Washburn said. “Get involved in a Memorial Day service, get involved with outreach. There are a lot of things people can do to show respect. Keep our state looking good and free of litter. Don’t look down at a veteran who needs help.” Shane Logue, another local veteran who works at the State College VFW, was a part of the 3rd Battalion 8th Marines based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Logue served in the Marines from 2003 to 2007, which included two deployments to Iraq in 2005 and 2006. “Memorial Day is a day for remembrance,” Logue said. “I think it’s a good day to make a more public acknowledgement toward veterans. Veterans always remember

IN BOALSBURG, thousands gathered to celebrate Memorial Day on Monday. The town’s annual parade marked the occasion. their service but I think it’s great for the wider public.” “I think honoring veterans is most crucial right now,” Logue said. “The World War II veterans are dying off. More emphasis should be getting and recording stories from World War II veterans and thanking them. We don’t have too much more time left with them.” Mike Morlang, 62, is a veteran who dedicates his Memorial Day to making sure others are able to enjoy and appreciate the various ceremonies going on around the area. Morland served for 23 years in the Navy on nuclear submarines and other ships.

“Memorial Day is a time to remember all veterans — those that have passed and those that are still here,” Morlang said. “The problem these days is that people are so young that they only know a lot about Iraq and Afghanistan. I don’t think they teach young people enough about military service.” Morlang, who worked at Penn State’s Breazeale Nuclear Reactor for 14 years following his service, takes part in various services every Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend. “I try to get to as many Memorial Day services that I can,” Morlang said. “It would be perfect if people could come to the ceremonies to honor veterans. I hope people are starting to recognize how important that service is.”

MAY 30-JUNE 5, 2013 Girls, from page 1 schools within the State College Area School District schools. Recently, a pilot program began in Bellefonte at St. John’s Catholic School this season. “We’re moving into Bellefonte with the hope of eventually serving all of Centre County,” said Hinkle. Hinkle and all other Girls on The Run staff work with schools, participate in community events and coordinate the afterschool programs, all as volunteers. Seeing the changes the program has in the young girls keeps Hinkle and the other volunteers coming back year after year. “I’ve seen amazing things happen with little girls,” she said. In addition to serving as the council director, Hinkle also tries to serve as a coach for the after-school programs, as it allows her to stay personally involved with the girls, see how the program is doing and if there are any changes that need to be made.

If you go WHO: Girls on the Run Happy Valley participants, parents and community members WHAT: Girls on The Run Happy Valley 5K Run/Walk WHERE: Medlar Field at Lubrano Park WHEN: 1 p.m., June 2 WHY: To support Girls on The Run Happy Valley participants “I’ve seen girls go from not wanting to sit in the circle and talk about the topic, girls who don’t want to share, who aren’t comfortable expressing themselves, girls who don’t think they can run at all to running the whole 5K to participating in five more races,” she said. The program offers two 10-week long seasons to girls where they meet twice a week to learn about themselves, in addition to learning the proper way to run and eat.

THE CENTRE COUNTY GAZETTE Hinkle said three volunteer coaches attend each session and teach the young girls about a focus topic. Each session revolved around a self-empowerment and self-respecting topic, with gratitude as an example. At each session, the focus topic is incorporated into the warm-up and two-mile run. Hinkle said confidence is always incorporated into each session, as girls learn to set their own goals. “Girls see changes in their emotional well-being,” Hinkle said. One such girl is Ryan McNamara, who is now a junior at Penn State and serves as the head coach for the Park Forest Elementary program. As a young girl, McNamara participated in two seasons in the Charlotte, North Carolina program. When she moved to Bucks County at the age of 12, there was unfortunately no program for McNamara to join. She vowed she would once again become involved with Girls on The Run as a volunteer or coach once she was able to find another program. During McNamara’s freshman year at Penn State, she contacted the national Girls on The Run office, which put her in touch with Hinkle. McNamara helped to start the Happy Valley program. Now in her second year as a head coach, McNamara loves to spread the uniqueness of the program to young girls. “Each practice focuses on a specific lesson that affects girls throughout adolescence and into adulthood. (A few weeks ago) my group focused on healthy eating and being emotionally healthy, two things that many of our girls struggle with as they grow,” she said. “The program is unique because it combines the benefits of individual sports and team sports. It’s all about setting high goals for yourself, but also learning how to encourage others and to act as a team.” Hinkle said the sessions help young girls who have been bullied tremendously. Last season, she said a young girl who was bullied every day would come to each session crying. “For her to be able to express that and learn how to say no, stand up for herself,

GIRLS ON THE RUN Happy Valley participants and their supporters made their way around the Medlar Field at Lubrano Park at last year’s 5K. even though it was her friend who was bullying her, that’s an extraordinary girl you can give a child, those skills to learn that they are unique and wonderful, even though they are different, even though everyone is different,” Hinkle said. For both Hinkle and McNamara, the goal of the program is to express self-respect, joy and happiness to young girls before they are pressured to make bad decisions. Hinkle said she feels getting to girls before these decisions are made builds well for the community’s future. “Girls understand their role in the community and what they can do, how they can be a part of things. That commitment to the community, it means so much because it means they are going to take that role more serious,” Hinkle said. McNamara agreed, saying that today’s society constantly puts pressure on girls from the media, advertisements and peers. “This program is a great way to start healthy habits early on that last for a life-

time,” she said. Hinkle said the goal of the program isn’t about girls being able to run hundreds of miles. Instead, it is about learning to respect oneself, honor one’s body and to see oneself as worthy. “Our goal is really to help the young girls develop the skills and confidence to make healthy choices. That’s what we’re really trying to build, down to the foundation,” she said. On Saturday, June 2, the girls will show they have reached these goals at the Spring Girls on The Run Happy Valley 5K Run/Walk at Medlar Field. “By the end of it, when they get to the 5K, they are like ‘when can we do it again?’ So for us, it has been about seeing the girls’ attitude change,” Hinkle said.

‘Mack’s Teepee’ a fitting tribute to former classmate By LAURA NICHOLS

STATE COLLEGE — At a very young age, John Cobes and Adalee Wasikonis learned a painful life lesson when their friend suddenly passed away. They miss their buddy, Mack Brady. They miss Mack’s boundless energy and the fun they all shared. And they wanted to do something to help keep Mack’s spirit alive. Mack died on New Year’s Eve, from a bacterial infection. He was just 8 years old. Cobes and Wasikonis have spent the past few months channeling their energy into a project that will reflect Mack’s funloving, playful side. Wasikonis, 12, said she knew right away she had to do something to pay tribute to her friend who was always ready for the next adventure. She and Mack were three years apart and at different schools, but the Park Forest Middle Schooler says Mack was a great friend, never just a “little kid.” “I thought more of him as just funny, he had good ideas. He was cool to hang around,” Adalee said. Her mother, Morgan Wasikonis, says Mack was known around the school as a “good kid.” He even won several citizenship awards. “He was just a really sweet kid who was a friend to a lot of people,” she said. “Mack was all about having fun.” Mack was in Terri Del Real’s third-grade class with his best friend John. When the class studied Native Americans, the two boys brought their lesson home and built a teepee in the backyard with Adalee. It was a memorable moment — it was Mack at his fun loving best. Adalee came up with the idea for a fundraiser to build a “teepee” jungle gym at Park Forest Elementary in Mack’s honor. The project quickly took off. It started with the children, who emptied their piggybanks, dropping whatever change they had into classroom collection jars. One student ran a lemonade stand with the proceeds going toward the fund. Dona-

tions came from friends at after-school YMCA programs, school bus drivers and older siblings. A school-wide fundraiser, dubbed “Adventure Night” is planned for June 7. Mack’s parents think the project is a terrific tribute to their beloved son. Elizabeth Brady and her husband, Christian Brady — dean of the Penn State Schreyer Honors College — are amazed by the students’ efforts and how its empowered them. “I think it’s wonderful. It’s something tangible they can do,” Brady said. “It kind of happened organically. It’s been driven by the kids and I think that’s why they’re so empowered to participate and feel like they have ownership of it.” Wasikonis said there are even plans in for a pancake breakfast fundraiser in the fall. “It’s just getting started,” she said. It hasn’t been easy for Adalee, who says she especially missed Mack on his birthday and would have spent a lot of time with him this summer. John said he knows Mack would think the entire project is awesome. No, make that epic! “It makes me feel good that people are sending in money even though they might have nothing to do with our school or our school district,” John said. “I think (Mack) would have liked to be a part of it.” So far, Mack’s Teepee fundraiser has amassed more than $3,000. The Parent Teacher Organization at Park Forest Elementary has pledged money from its Box Tops for Schools collection. That could put the fund at close to $5,000. DelReal said the project has helped the children deal with the painful loss of their classmate. It’s been difficult for them to grasp what happened. Working on fundraising is making them feel better. Many children have enthusiastically embraced the project, writing letters to local business owners and volunteering to help out at Adventure Night. John recalled Mack as a boy who simply loved life. John could always find his best friend outside, ready to play.

MACK BRADY, of State College, passed away on Dec. 31, 2012. His classmates are honoring him by building “Mack’s Teepee” at the Park Forest Elementary jungle gym. “He was someone you could just hang out with, who would actually like, play with you and not just just sit there,” John said. One by one, students in DelReal’s class offered their own memories of Mack. The kids, each 8 or 9 years old, recall a boy with an infectious smile who always had a kind word and was unstoppable on the soccer field. They agreed he would have liked Adventure Night a lot, and think he would have been working just as hard as anyone else to raise money. Elizabeth Brady said she and her family,

including Mack’s older sister, will be in attendance at Adventure Night, even helping out at the cotton candy booth. “Mack ... he just enjoyed life,” she said. “He enjoyed everybody, everyone in our family loved him and got such a kick out of him. He just had that kind of lovable spirit. “We love talking about him,” Brady said. “Mack was a very special person. He didn’t take anything too seriously and he was always very funny. He loved to be involved, and I think he would absolutely love it. He would say, ‘This is totally awesome.’”

Community’s help sought to save parade As many of you know, the Logan Fire Co. is not able to hold its annual Fourth of July carnival this year. However, without proceeds from the carnival, it’s also unable to underwrite the costs of the Fourth of July parade, a Bellefonte tradition that’s delighted young and old for decades. Fortunately, the fire company has agreed to organize the event — if the community is willing to help raise the $2,500 needed to cover expenses. If you’d like to help keep this tradition alive, please send a check made out to “Bellefonte Borough” to borough headquarters at 236 W. Lamb St., Bellefonte, PA 16823. Please write the word “parade” in the memo section. You can also place donations in collection cans (courtesy of Hoag’s Catering) located in stores throughout the borough. Assuming enough money is raised, the parade will take place Saturday, July 6, at 5 p.m. It will start at the former Weis store on East Bishop Street and travel down Bishop Street before turning right onto Allegheny Street then left at the Diamond, finishing at Talleyrand Park. Although an alternate route was considered, Logan Fire Co. representatives wanted to keep the parade on Bishop Street as a show of gratitude to the many Bishop Street residents who support the company. More than 6,500 people live in Bellefonte. If even half of them donate just one dollar, we can continue this very special Fourth of July event. Bonnie and Denny Leathers Bellefonte

Regulatory bedlam puts us at risk A guy’s walking across a college campus, sees a young woman, grins, winks and, even though he doesn’t know her, says he’d sure like to take someone so beautiful out on a date. She’s offended. She accuses this fellow student of sexual harassment, and, because of new federal rules, she does not have to show that others might also find his remarks objectionable — as previously required. In proceedings that follow, his interrogators do not presume him innocent and can Jay Ambrose is a rule against him columnist for despite reasonScripps-Howard able doubt. News Service. There’s the possibility of a career wrecked by a moment’s resented forwardness. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? But much worse has happened and the door is being opened for more shocks. This is the new America, an America that is not quite a democracy anymore, but a country dictated to by tens of thousands of pages of bureaucratically promulgated regulations that cover everything from the amount of water allowed in a toilet to the kind of light bulb we dimwits may buy. Maybe some think that every tea party needs a pooper, preferably from


the Internal Revenue Service, and that red-tape specialists should run everyone’s lives, because, after all, they’re better than we are. The evidence tells us something else. It tells us the administrative state can be grotesquely unfair, unconstitutional, self-contradictory, unspeakably autocratically intrusive, stupid and morally repulsive. And as if there wasn’t enough already, more imperiousness recently came our way in the form of the Department of Education. In a Wall Street Journal analysis by a student of the subject, we learn of a department letter letting colleges and universities know they’d darn well better know that speech can be a form of sexual harassment deserving swift action. That’s not all. The letter also says that if supposed victims pronounce themselves offended, that’s criterion enough to decide sexual harassment was committed. Much of higher education may well lower itself to heed this interpretation of federal law, because, if it doesn’t, financial aid and student loans could be lost. Especially when you add these new rules to prior rules, you have a problem. You’ve made speech less free and substituted yet more persecution for justice, which, every American should know, gets trumped elsewhere in our regulatory system. There are said to be so many federal regulations with criminal penalties that no one can be sure of the exact number. If that’s true, you might wonder how citizens can begin to know what those regulations say. The answer is that they don’t and many stumble

into guilty verdicts simply by going about their daily lives with no idea they were doing anything wrong. Two years ago, The Wall Street Journal documented this travesty in an excellent series that pinpointed specific cases that were nothing short of unconscionable in a land that ordinarily evokes pride instead of shame. President Barack Obama will fix our regulatory mess, won’t he? He brags he will. He doesn’t. In January 2011, he talked about addressing the incredible overlap in government programs, and well he should have. As The Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe reported in 2011, Obama’s stimulus was hardly helped by the fact that funding for its crucial transportation projects depended on five agencies using 100 different distribution mechanisms. Skip two years, and the White House is again pledging action in a situation the Government Accountability Office says is still a bad joke. Some old problems were addressed, but new ones developed. A report in The Fiscal Times notes that all this program duplication represents “about $95 billion in potential cost savings” — $10 billion more than the money saved by the sequester cuts. For more bad news, note the Heritage Foundation’s estimate that the increased economic cost of regulations in Obama’s first term was likely more than seen in any other administration and its prediction that new regulations headed our way will badly burden an economy struggling to get going. I find that probability offensive and suspect many others do, too.

Exporting coal creates dirty problems If you believe in the Biblical story of a six-day creation — and many Americans do — consider whether there’s a reason that the good Lord buried coal, oil and natural gas deep underground and beneath the oceans, where they would be hard to reach. It might be because the stuff is highly toxic in all its forms and imminently incompatible with human life and health. John M. Crisp Of course, teaches English at Del Mar College in many who beCorpus Christi, lieve in the good Texas. His column Lord also believe is distributed by that hydrocarScripps Howard bons are merely News Service. Email another of the him at jcrisp@ many bounteous resources that He’s committed to our stewardship. And we’ve put few other resources to more extensive use. The highly concentrated energy in hydrocarbons has created the modern world, providing for us comforts, pleasures and freedoms unimagined before humans learned to release coal’s power by burning it. And what would the world be without oil? Reliance on hydrocarbons comes with a price, though, from the thousands of coal miners who’ve suffered premature deaths from black lung disease to the as-yet-unknown conse-


quences of greenhouse gas-induced climate change. Hydrocarbons have done a lot for us, but, speaking of the Bible, one wonders if it’s time to invoke the Christian principle of moderation and restraint. Here’s a broad view of the problem, and then we’ll get specific: In terms of supply, the energy outlook for the United States is better than it’s been in years. New technologies and the high price of oil have made available previously unproductive sources of hydrocarbons. The focus is on environmentally questionable methods of extraction like fracking and inferior types of hydrocarbons like the Canadian tar sands, which require enormous amounts of energy and water to mine and transport. As long as the price permits us to find them, mine them, transport them, and burn them, we appear to have enough hydrocarbons on the North American continent to achieve independence from foreign sources. In fact, we’re becoming more and more an energy exporter. Here’s an example: As we turn toward cleaner sources of energy like natural gas, we continue to mine a dirty source — that would be coal — according to the capitalistic principle that we’ll do nearly anything that creates jobs and produces a profit. Thus a battle is under way in the Northwest. You can find details at, but here are the basics: The Powder River Canyon in Montana and Wyoming has an abundance of coal. Plans are afoot to extract the coal, transport it by rail to

the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point, Wash., and ship it to China, which can quickly and easily absorb another 48 million tons of coal annually. Supporters of this project contend it will create 1,250 permanent familywage jobs. Opponents are concerned about the environmental impact of mining, shipping and burning that much coal, which, they contend, will require 30 miles of new coal trains every day between the mine and the terminal. Even BNSF Railway, the proposed shipper, has admitted that, without mitigation, each railcar can lose between 500 pounds and a ton of coal dust, the substance that causes black lung disease. At best, moving that much coal from Wyoming to China will be a dirty undertaking. For some critics, morality or principle may play a role, as well. As we move toward cleaner natural gas here, are there ethical implications to shipping our dirtiest energy to China, a country that, according to The New York Times, in some places already has hydrocarbon-produced pollution 40 times higher than limits recommended by the World Health Organization? Chinese children are suffering. But morality aside, whether the coal is burned here or in China isn’t important in global terms. Everyone will feel the impact. China is already the world’s No. 1 producer of greenhouse gases. We’re No. 2, but we’re helping China stay on top. Shouldn’t both of us ratchet down the consumption of a temporarily valuable resource that’s extremely dangerous in the long run?

HEALTH & WELLNESS How to prepare your home and car for emergencies From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Whether traveling or at home, there are things you can do before an emergency to ensure a swift response and a better possible outcome to your situation. Scott Buchle, program manager for Life Lion EMS at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, says the biggest problem emergency personnel encounter is that people wait too long to call for help. Some call their family members or doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and waste precious time. So, it is a good idea that family members young and old know when and how to call 911. The house number should be prominent and not blocked by overgrown brush or other unkempt plants and trees. It is also important to make sure the entry ways into your house are kept clear, because responders need to get in and out the front and back doors. Buchle also stresses the need to have your current medical information available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a problem, the biggest things I want to know when we come is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong, what medications, what allergies, what past medical history you have,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with you now is related to a past medical problem; that all factors into how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to treat you.â&#x20AC;? In addition, the information should include your full name, emergency contact information, and your primary care physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contact information. Keep this information in a purse or wallet, or something you would be likely to carry with you. Keep copies with

your medications or in your well-stocked first aid kit and give one to your emergency contact. Programs like the Vial of Life also offer the alternative of a magnetic pouch, kept on your refrigerator, in which detailed information can be stored on each family member. While traveling, carrying the same data can be important in case of an accident. Initiatives like the Pennsylvania Department of Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yellow Dot Program suggest keeping updated information on every family member in your glove compartment; however, Buchle says it is still important to carry it in a wallet or purse as well, in case you are separated from your vehicle. He also suggests keeping a basic first aid kit in the car, carrying over-the-counter pain medications and current medications with you (not to be left in your vehicle), and having an ICE (in case of emergency) contact in your cell phone. The standard supplies that Buchle recommends to keep in a basic first aid are: â&#x2013; Bandages of various sizes â&#x2013;  4 x 4 gauze pads â&#x2013;  an ABD pad (a.k.a. an abdominal bandage)

From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; April showers might bring May flowers, but they also kick grass into high growing gear, prompting homeowners everywhere to pull out the mower in hopes of cutting order into their lawns. It also means that emergency departments begin seeing more injuries caused by this most familiar piece of household equipment. More than 83,000 people were treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments for lawn mower injuries in 2011, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Susan E. Rzucidlo, pediatric trauma and injury prevention program manager at Penn State Hershey, said both riding and push mowers can cause harm if not operated safely.

Tips to avoid lawn mower injuries

THERE ARE plenty of items that should be put inside a car to prepare it for an emergency.

Although adults should be more aware of the risks than children, they still engage in dangerous practices that result in everything from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones and amputations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The injuries are often severe,â&#x20AC;? Rzucidlo says. If you mow in flip flops or sandals, listen to an MP3 player while mowing, or let kids help push the mower or ride on your lap, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking for trouble, she says. Rzucidlo and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend the following tips to reduce the likelihood of injury for both children and adults: â&#x2013; Only use a mower with a control that stops the mower blade from moving if the handle is let go. â&#x2013;  Do not allow children younger than 12 to operate a push lawn mower â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 16 for a riding lawn mower. â&#x2013;  Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes (not sandals or sneakers) while mowing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way your feet are not as likely to slip and go under the blades,â&#x20AC;? Rzucidlo says. â&#x2013;  Pick up objects from the lawn before mowing. Flying sticks, stones or toys can cause injury. â&#x2013;  Anyone using a mower or near a mower in use should wear protective eyewear and earwear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mower puts out really high decibels, so sometimes people will put on music,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then you are going to have to turn it up louder to hear it, so you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protecting your ears but subjecting them to higher decibel sounds. That is eventually going to cause hearing loss.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013;  Do not pull the mower backward or mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Look for children behind you if you must mow in reverse. â&#x2013;  Always turn off the mower and wait for the blades to stop completely before removing the grass catcher, unclogging the discharge chute, inspecting or repairing lawn mower equipment or crossing gravel paths, roads or other areas. â&#x2013;  Use a stick or broom handle (not your hands or feet) to remove debris in lawn mowers. â&#x2013;  Do not allow children to ride as passengers on ride-on mowers, and keep children out of the yard while mowing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make sure they are inside or with another adult,â&#x20AC;? Rzucidlo says. â&#x2013;  Drive up and down slopes, not across to prevent mower rollover. â&#x2013;  Keep lawn mowers in good working order. When using a lawn mower for the first time in a season, have it serviced to ensure that it is working correctly.

CIVIL WAR re-enactors pause for lunch near the Boalsburg cemetery.

Boalsburg celebrates Memorial Day By SAM STITZER

BOALSBURG — The village of Boalsburg lays claim to being the “Birthplace of Memorial Day.” It began in October 1864, when two teenage girls, Emma Hunter and Sophie Keller, placed flowers on the grave of Emma’s father, Dr. Reuben Hunter, a surgeon in the Union Army, who had died just a short while before. That same day Elizabeth Meyer elected to place flowers on the grave of her son Amos, a private in the ranks, who had fallen on the final day of battle at Gettysburg. The ladies agreed to meet the next year on the same day to decorate the graves of all the fallen soldiers in the cemetery, and a tradition was born. Boalsburg honored Memorial Day 2013 with a host of activities. On Saturday, May 25, a World War II bivouac was set up on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Military Museum. Pup tents were erected, representing both the allied and German soldiers’ encampments, along with displays of authentic equipment and weapons used by soldiers in the war. Soldier re-enactors were on hand to answer questions from spectators and to demonstrate how the equipment works. Re-enactor Gilbert White of the 137th

Regiment Second Mountain Unit was dressed as a German soldier. He showed a table filled with German and Russian ordnance, including various types of land mines and booby traps. One such mine was nicknamed the “Bouncing Betty.” It was a mine, which when stepped on would detonate a charge sending it about six feet into the air, where a second charge would detonate, throwing shards of shrapnel in all directions for up to 150 yards, killing or injuring anyone in its path. Gilbert said: “Movies and TV shows tend to gloss over some of the aspects of war. Seeing it here brings it home.” Another reenactor said that much of the war equipment in their displays is found in garages, government auctions, and online auctions. Some weapons had been turned over to local police departments after elderly veterans had passed away and the items had been found by family members. At 3 p.m., the group “Letters From Home” performed in a pavilion on the grounds. This group is an Andrews Sisters tribute act consisting of Heidi Shafer, Serah Haley and Erinn Diaz, from Winston-Salem, N.C. The ladies perform Andrews Sisters songs, mimicking their singing style and World War II-era costumes with great accuracy. The audience numbered well over 100 people, who filled the pavilion, and spilled

out onto nearby picnic tables. Some audience members sang along with the group, especially during “God Bless America.” Group member Erinn Diaz said her father was a veteran and he loved the Andrews Sisters’ music. “He told us that we needed to start singing this music,” she said. The group makes appearances all over the country. At 5 p.m. that day, the Fireman’s Parade began outside of Blue Spring Park and proceeded through downtown Boalsburg, featuring people in Civil War-era costumes, bands, floats, antique cars, twirlers, and fire fighting equipment from towns in several counties. The Nittany Highland Pipe Band marched in the parade. According to band member Molly Buchanan of Woodward, the band was formed in 1970 by some Penn State employees. Its members play bagpipes and drums, and dress in traditional Scottish plaid kilts. The Boalsburg Firemen’s Carnival, featuring rides and food vendors, was running concurrent with all the Memorial Day weekend events in town. On Memorial Day, May 27, streets of Boalsburg were closed to traffic and filled with arts and craft vendors, where shoppers strolled in a carnival-like atmosphere. Civil War reenactments were performed,

with the sound and smoke of cannons and black powder rifles filling the air. Many musical groups entertained audiences at the nearby Boal Mansion during the day. Across the road, on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Military Museum, a car show sponsored by the American Antique Auto Association (AACA) drew a large crowd of auto enthusiasts. Many antique and classic cars were on exhibit. One of the oldest cars present was a 1918 Cadillac Model 57 touring coupe owned by Scott and Ellen Deno of State College. They bought the car in 2000, and its restoration was finished in 2009. That same year the Cadillac won a first place in an AACA national competition. Patrick Boab brought a 1940 Packard Model 110 four door sedan which was originally owned by the Rich family, who owned Woolrich Woolen Mills in Woolrich. It was bought in Lock Haven in 1940, and has just 25,000 miles on the odometer. A popular vehicle at this show was a 1929 Ford ice cream truck owned by Ed Friedman of Boalsburg. Friedman bought the truck at an auction in Hershey. Friedman was dressed in a white ice cream man outfit with a black bow tie and a change dispenser on his belt. He handed out ice cream bars to children and some adults at the show.

AMERICAN LEGION members prepare to honor veterans in the Stover Cemetery east of Aaronsburg.

Millheim American Legion Post pays tribute to deceased veterans By SAM STITZER

MILLHEIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On May 26, members of American Legion Post 444 in Millheim traveled to numerous cemeteries in the eastern Penns Valley and Brush Valley areas, conducting Memorial Day services to honor veterans whose graves occupy those cemeteries. Post Commander Carol Clark-Baney opened the services, citing a quotation by President John F. Kennedy, who said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A nation reveals itself not only by the men it pro-

duces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.â&#x20AC;? Clark-Baney said that the deceased veterans shared a common bond with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soldiers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you would look into their lives, both the privates and the generals, you would see that they all practice the same military values: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage,â&#x20AC;? she said. Following a prayer, Clark-Baney announced â&#x20AC;&#x153;Squad, honor our veterans.â&#x20AC;? Legion member Carl Royer gave the â&#x20AC;&#x153;ready, aim, fireâ&#x20AC;? commands to members of a firing squad, who fired three volleys of shots into the air. Civil War re-enactor Jimmy Brown, dressed in an authentic Civil War Union soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniform pulled the lanyard on a Civil War-era cannon, setting it off with a loud boom which echoed across the valley to honor the veterans. The playing of taps concluded each service. The service was repeated at a total of 18 cemeteries located in Spring Mills, Millheim, Aaronsburg, and Woodward along state Route 45, as well as cemeteries in Brush Valley, located in Livonia, Rebersburg, Madisonburg and along state Route 192. The Millheim American Legion has been conducting these services on Memorial Day weekend for over five decades.

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In a remarkable show of support, the State College community donated more than half a million dollars to area charities. And it happened over a span of just 36 hours, thanks to a novel online fundraising machine called Centre Gives. Eighty-two charities are beneficiaries of this program, now in its second year. Centre Gives is sponsored by the Centre Foundation. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraiser ran from 6 a.m. Wednesday through 6 p.m. Thursday. Charities competed to see which ones could raise the most money from their supporters. The Centre Foundation provides $100,000 dollars in matching funds, which is split between the various charities on a pro-rated basis. That means the charities that raised the most money get the biggest slice of that $100,000 pot. The Centre Foundation awards an additional $25,000 in prizes. The whole process takes place on the internet, with donations collected online. Charities used social media, email and other alerts to get the word out to donors. When the two-day fundraiser wrapped up, the grand total topped $552,074, with 4,158 donors having contributed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled that this event has once again been immensely successful for the participating nonprofits,â&#x20AC;? Centre Foundation financial assistant Sarah Sciabica said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to be amazed by the generosity and support this community has to offer.â&#x20AC;? Some of the top fundraising organizations are: â&#x2013; The American Philatelic Society: 239 gifts, totaling $62,920 â&#x2013;  Clearwater Conservancy: 148 gifts, totaling $36,325 â&#x2013;  Centre Volunteers in Medicine: 178 gifts, totaling $33,100 â&#x2013;  Discovery Space of Pennsylvania: 117 gifts, totaling $28,455 â&#x2013;  The State Theatre: 252 gifts, totaling $27,898

Union Church Members addressed the crowd, referring to the “almost visible presence” of the fallen veterans, and thanking them for the sacrifices they made for our freedom. A prayer by church member Clair Jones followed, and then Tim Zerby read a roll call of veterans buried in the cemetery. The ceremony finished with a 21-gun salute by Millheim American Legion members, a Civil War cannon firing by Jimmy Brown of Hampton’s Battery F and the playing of taps.

THE TRASH TO TREASURE sale will be held on June 1 at Beaver Stadium. Early bird shoppers can find treasures beginning at 7:30 a.m. for an entry fee of $5.

Trash to Treasure Sale set From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The 12th annual Trash to Treasure Sale to benefit Centre County United Way is only a few days away. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will open at 7:30 a.m. on June 1 for those early-bird shoppers who want first pick of the treasure. Cost is $5. The fee gets shoppers in Gate B of Beaver Stadium to peruse over 63 tons of items donated by Penn State students. Admission is free after 9 a.m. until the sale closes at 2 p.m. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trash to Treasure features a new opportunity for bargain hunters. As shoppers enter the sale they will be given reusable canvas tote bags they can fill for $15. Items that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit in the bags will be priced individually, such as TVs, computers, furniture and lamps. Shoppers are welcome to bring their own tote bags but they must meet size specifications. Trash to Treasure honorary chair and Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior vice president of finance and business, David Gray, feels the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tote It Awayâ&#x20AC;? idea is a perfect fit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This sale is first and foremost a waste management tool for the university. Each year, Penn State averages 190 tons in move-out waste â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the largest two-day

waste stream produced at Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University Park campus. By introducing reusable totes as an option for shoppers we are promoting our reduce, reuse, recycle and restore philosophy,â&#x20AC;? Gray said. Gray continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through the Trash to Treasure Sale we are able to recycle 42 percent of the move out waste, cut our landfill costs, strengthen town and gown partnerships and support the Centre County United Way Partner Agencies.

Also on hand for sale day, along with Gray and the Trash to Treasure team, will be Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of strength and conditioning for football, Craig Fitzgerald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to being there bright and early to motivate the shoppers who arrive before dawn. I want to get the crowd pumped. This sale is about more than just finding good deals. It is about supporting Centre County through the United Way and that is something I believe in 100 percent.â&#x20AC;?

Gazette: What are you most looking forward to about graduating from high school? Connelly: I am looking forward to the liberties that will be given to me. While in high school you aren’t given too many. You’re told where to be when and how to do what. In college, there isn’t much of that. Gazette: What are your plans after graduation? Connelly: This summer I will be staying at home while I take three classes at PSU. I also plan on spending a lot of time with my friends before the summer is over. In the fall I will move onto campus and will major in the field of Education. I am currently looking into the major of Secondary English with a focus on English/Communications or the major of Education and Public Policy. I plan to minor in music. Gazette: What is your area of interest? Connelly: I am heavily involved in the fine arts department at the high school. Music has become my life while at Bellefonte. I am a member of the bands, choirs, full orchestra, and the drama club. I love performing in front of people. Gazette: Where are you going to college? Connelly: I will be attending Penn State University. Gazette: Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years? Connelly: In five years I see myself having a job within the Department of Education, whether it be on the teaching side or the governmental side, I’m not sure. In 10 years I see myself with a strong career with ownership of a house and a dog. Gazette: What do you hope to accomplish with your education thus far? Where do you hope your plans after college will take you? Connelly: I hope to get great grades in college. I believe that I will be a good student at Penn State. After college, I hope my education will take me to a big city. I want to work in an urban area. Gazette: If you know what career or field you want to go into, which one? Why? Connelly: I want to go into the field of education. I want to be part of the education of children. I want to change student’s lives and make sure that they are students that are able to succeed in life. Gazette: How has your high school education and experience helped prepare you for the next step in life? What are some characteristics of your high school career that are especially important or valuable to you? Why? Connelly: High school has helped me immensely in preparing me for college. I have learned great skills, such as time management and great leadership skills. Being involved with the performances of the drama club have really helped me with making time for studying and being the president of the choirs has taught me how to be a leader in tough situations (Many staff changes throughout the year has been tough on the choir). Gazette: Is there anything else Gazette readers should know about you? Connelly: I’m just an average kid. I have a cute dog, a pretty cat, a little brother, and awesome friends. I have two parents that are great to me and I’m so thankful for what they have done for me. I’m really grateful to my pap for all of the great advice that he has given me throughout my life so far. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for my life, but I hope something great will come of it.

Gazette: What are you most looking forward to about graduating from high school? Boone: I'm looking forward to taking my next step towards discovering who I am and what I want to be, as well as seeing the world outside of Centre County. Gazette: What are your plans after graduation? Boone: I plan to attend a five year university. Gazette: What is your area of interest? Boone: My areas of interest include conserving the environment for future generations. Gazette: Where are you going to college? Boone: I plan to attend Drexel University to major in environmental engineering. Gazette: Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years? Boone: In five years I hope to be finishing up college. In 10 years I hope to be attending graduate school to get my doctorate in either environmental conservation or marine biology, I also hope to have begun a family at that point in my life. Gazette: What do you hope to accomplish with your education thus far? Where do you hope your plans after college will take you? Boone: I hope that my education has laid the groundwork for what I want to accomplish in life after college. I would like to travel with my job and be able to see and help the world. Gazette: If you know what career or field you want to go into, which one? Why? Boone: I'm not sure what career field I want to go into at this point in time, as long as my job helps to preserve the Earth and its resources. Gazette: How has your high school education and experience helped prepare you for the next step in life? What are some characteristics of your high school career that are especially important or valuable to you? Why? Boone: I am now equipped with the tools I need to move forward including interpersonal skills such as teamwork and leadership. One characteristic of high school that is extremely important to me is music, because it has taught me to strive for perfection and to never give up until I reach my goal. It has also given me the opportunity to both lead and to be part of something bigger than me, bigger than my school, bigger than our county, music is the universal language. Gazette: Is there anything else Gazette readers should know about you? Boone: I will never forget the people and the things throughout my high school career that have molded me into who I am. Though I am excited to move on to college and the next step of my life, I will forever hold PVHS in my mind.

Gazette: What are you most looking forward to about graduating from high school? Lesher: No more tests! I am a horrible test taker and won’t miss that aspect of school ever. Gazette: What are your plans after graduation? Lesher: I leave this August to study abroad in Ecuador with the Rotary Exchange for a year. Gazette: What is your area of interest? Lesher: Anything agricultural and related to English, two different subjects but both very important to me. Gazette: Where are you going to college? Lesher: When I get back from Ecuador I plan to attend college for secondary English education. I hope to go to a Christian college so I can minor in missions. Gazette: Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years? Lesher: In five years I see myself finishing up school and either joining the Peace Corps or a missions program. In ten years I hope to be teaching children, anywhere in the world sounds good to me! Gazette: What do you hope to accomplish with your education thus far? Where do you hope your plans after college will take you? Lesher: When I return bilingual and finish college I want to use that skill to better communicate when I am abroad helping those in need. Gazette: If you know what career or field you want to go into, which one? Why? Lesher: I want to be an English teacher for many reasons...I love all that literature and the language has to offer. A big reason is because I see teaching as a way to inspire students which in turn makes the world a better place one person at a time. Gazette: How has your high school education and experience helped prepare you for the next step in life? What are some characteristics of your high school career that are especially important or valuable to you? Why? Lesher: When I get to Ecuador, the Spanish basics I learned over the years will be incredibly helpful. Through State High’s Little Lions FFA Chapter I have developed leadership skills that will always stay with me forever. The teachers, especially this year, have touched my life in a powerful way. They have demonstrated a love for their job and students that has inspired me to one day do the same. I’ll miss the social aspect a lot but it’s time to move on to greater things!

Shining Stars Centre County athletes fare well at PIAA track and field championships By PHILIP CMOR Special to The Gazette

SHIPPENSBURG — The sun came out about midway through the second day of the PIAA Track and Field Championships, brightening up what had been a dreary weekend for all the competitors — and a busy one for State College Area High School senior sprinter Lauren Bonness. “It’s fantastic,” Bonness said. “I just let my body soak it up.” Bonness, though, wasn’t basking in the glow of that strange bright ball in the sky that was absent so much of Friday and Saturday at a blustery and often unseasonably cold Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium as much as she was her moment on the medal stand as one-fourth of the Lady Lions’ seventh-place 400-meter Class AAA relay team. Sevens were wild at states, with Centre County producing four medalists, all of them for seventh place. State College also got on the medal stand for both its girls and boys 3200 relays. Penns Valley’s Grace Gover made it to the podium on Friday for her showing in the Class AA high jump. It was Gover’s third trip to the PIAA meet. “I’m very happy. Last year I got ninth, so I missed the podium by one spot,” Gover said. “My goal was to get on the podium this year, and I’m really happy.” A senior, like Gover, Bonness had arrived in Shippensburg looking for four medals. However, she had been eliminated from contention in the 100 meters on Saturday morning by finishing seventh in her semifinal heat with a time of 12.51 seconds and bowed out of the 200 trials on Friday, when she finished fifth in her prelim at 46.13. She also was a member of State’s 1600 relay, but she didn’t run the event in Friday’s competition, and the team was eliminated, finishing fifth in its race in 4 minutes, 6.53 seconds. Everything brightened up, though, in the four-by-100. Bonness brought home the baton in the anchor role to finish in 49.11. Junior Niara Valentine, freshman Hayley Watkins and junior Olivia Watkins ran the first three legs. “I feel good. I feel like it was well-earned,” Valentine said. “We worked so hard throughout the year to get here and show them our place here. It’s really sad because Lauren’s leaving us.” It won its preliminary heat on Friday with a time of 49.29. “It’s really amazing,” added Bonness, who checked in at 12.31 in the 100 dash prelims -- good for second in her race -- on Friday to advance to the semis in that event. “We got a PR for the season. It’s really fun to have us all out here performing out fastest, even if it’s pretty windy. “I think we all were just really excited to run and ready to just go out there and give it our best until the end.” Watkins echoed Bonness’s sentiments. “I saw people beside me. I was like, ‘I’m not going to let them get me,’” Watkins said. “The sun on my back felt great. It was a great race.” Crawford’s medal was the second for her family on Saturday. Her older sister, Victoria, took one home as part of the 3200 relay, but the younger Crawford said she didn’t get any advice

STATE COLLEGE’S Lauren Bonness heads for the finish line in the Class AAA girls’ 100-meter run. She finished second in her heat to qualify for the finals.

STATE HIGH’S Bryce Williams competes in the triple jump during last weekend’s PIAA track and field championships at Shippensburg. from her sibling. “She just told me ‘Good luck,’” Hayley Crawford said, laughing. “She’s got an evil side to her.” The elder Crawford ran the anchor for her medal after senior Hannah Grubb, freshman Natasha Fedkina and junior Emma Cousins took care of the first 2400 meters. “I knew I had to at least stay with the pack and at least keep us in eighth place. I was able to do that. I had to push through the pain,” Crawford said. All three other members of the relay had competed in individual events earlier in the meet but been unable to medal. Cousins was 14th in her preliminary race in the Class AAA girls 800 run (2:23.58), while Fedkina was 14th in hers (2:27.42). Grubb was 11th in her Class AAA girls 1600 run preliminary heat, posting a time of 5:13.25. They posted a time of 9:24.45 in Saturday’s finals after finishing fifth in their Friday heat with a 9:36.60.

“I have never gotten a medal before, so it’s definitely very rewarding to be getting a medal for my last race in high school in the state championship,” Grubb said. While Grubb was wrapping up her scholastic career, Fedkina is off to a strong start to hers. She said she wasn’t nervous. “People always tell me how I always have three more years, so, it’s like, if this year doesn’t go so well, you have many more chances to go,” Fedkina said. “It’s just so great to get a medal in my first year.” Cousins was in ninth when she received the baton. “All three of my years, my goal has been to get a medal. Last year, I came so close in the fourby-eight and in the open eight,” Cousins said. “I just wanted to get a medal. I believed in Victoria, but I didn’t want to put all the pressure on Victoria to beat them, so I just wanted to fight for it.” The quartet didn’t run togeth-

er on Friday. Kaelyn Yoder ran in Grubb’s place on the meet’s first day. “I think this is one of the first times all season that the four of us have raced together,” Grubb said, remarking that the team had six strong half-milers. “We’ve had a lot of competition on the team all year. It’s just such a close pack. So we’ve had to kind of stay on our toes to even make it to the meets all year. The fact that we’re competing against ourselves as well as other people has kind of positives to our race.” The State boys four-by-800 posted a time of 7:59.64 in the finals after coming in third in its preliminary heat on Friday (8:02.99). It’s the second straight year the Little Lions have finished seventh in the event, but only Kyle Adams and Will Cather -- the final two legs -- were part of the group in 2012. “It feels pretty good to match that this year,” Cather said. “When you have three other

guys, working their hardest to get you, as an anchor, in the best position, you try to bring it home as best as possible, just to get the best place.” Sam Bollinger, who had experience in states from soccer, and Chris Golembeski ran the opening legs. “I was pretty nervous,” said Bollinger, the only senior in a foursome otherwise comprised of juniors. “My junior year, we made states in soccer, and that also was very nervewracking, but you had a way bigger crowd for this, and there, you have 11 other guys. Here, you’ve got three other guys.” Golembeski opened the year as the leadoff leg before moving to second. “I just knew I had to pass as many as I could, stay ahead of Carlisle and run with the guys I knew I could run with, and get it to Kyle in the best position possible,” Golembeski said. Adams had his leg wrapped in ice after the race but said he was fine. “All these guys we were running against, we know all their names, we know all their times,” Adams said. “Once you get the baton, you know the guys next to you, you know who you can keep up with, who you should be passing, so it’s just doing a job. I got it and just tried to get Will in the best position I could.” Gover jumped 5-2 to earn her medal. She said the competition helped her, but she had other advantages. “It’s my third year, so I have a little bit more experience here at states. Knowing it’s my last year, I think I tried harder.” Gover also competed in the triple jump, where she was 12th (35-3 3/4). Several other Centre County competitors qualified for field event finals but didn’t medal. In Class AA girls, Penns Valley’s Nicole Bienert was 18th in the discus (96-2), Bald Eagle Area’s Marissa Ward was 24th in the long jump (14-5 1/2), and Philipsburg-Osceola’s Tiffany Bertothy was 21st in the Class AA girls javelin (100-11). State College’s Kimberly Lambert was 10th in the Class AAA girls javelin (123-6). She was seeded fifth. On the boys side, State College’s Bryce Williams and Kellin Valentine finished 11th (44-10 1/2) and 26th (42-0), respectively, in the Class AAA triple jump. Williams entered as the fifth seed. State College’s Sarah Almazooqi was 24th in the Class AAA girls 3200 run on Saturday, finishing in 11:38.42. Penns Valley’s Carolyn Darr and her Lady Rams’ 400 relay was knocked out in Friday’s prelims: Darr placed sixth in her girls 100 race (13.03), while the relay was third in its (51.07). On the Class AAA boys track, Bellefonte’s Sean Gipson was seventh in his preliminary heat in the Class AAA boys 800 (1:57.65). He missed the finals by eight10th of a second. Bellefonte’s Mitchell Smith was 27th in the 3200 run (9:55.83). State College’s Mason Post finished seventh in his preliminary heat of the 400 (52.45). State College’s John Smith was fourth in his preliminary heat in the hurdles (41.04). Philipsburg-Osceola’s Tim Eason was 12th in his preliminary heat in the Class AA boys 800 run (2:08.37).

On To The Finals P-O punches its ticket for the district title game with a 5-2 win over B-A By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

PHILIPSBURG — The PhilipsburgOsceola softball team played longball, smallball and just about everything in between in last Thursday’s District 6 Class AA semifinal showdown against BellewoodAntis. With a berth in the district final and the state tournament on the line, P-O began its scoring with a home run in the second inning, squeezed in a run in the third, manufactured two more in the fourth, and then capped its big 5-2 victory over the Lady Blue Devils with another homer in the sixth. Abby Showers and Carly Gonder supplied the home runs, Hailey Frank laid down a perfect squeeze bunt that plated Megan Bainey, and after a hit, an error, and a wild pitch, Gonder hit a two-run single to account for all of the P-O runs. It was enough offense, coupled with another solid pitching performance by P-O senior Kate Burge, to subdue the Lady Blue Devils and send the Mounties into interdistrict play for the fourth consecutive year. It also ended a remarkable season by Bellewood-Antis. The Blue Devils were playing as a AA team for the first time in their history and came into the game with a 20-2 record and as the reigning class A district champion. “I knew going into this game that they (Bellewood) were a good team, obviously,” Philipsburg coach Jim Gonder said. “We

heard about their pitcher (Taylor Payne) and she lived up to expectations. She was very effective. “I thought we used the short game well today. We’ve been hitting the ball really well all year, but we understand that the pitching gets better in the playoffs so you better have that short game, too. We’ve worked a lot on that and the kids bought into it. And it doesn’t matter who it is — third hitter, fourth hitter, fifth hitter — we will put the ball on the ground.” P-O also had to throw some leather at Bellewood, especially early in the game. The Devils threatened in the second inning after a single by Lauren Snyder and a walk to Payne put runners on first and second with no outs. Kelsey Decker followed with a hard grounder up the middle that looked like it might get through, but shortstop Abby Showers scooped it up, stepped on second to force Payne, and then threw to first to complete the double play. Laycee Clark then grounded out — fittingly — to Showers to end the inning. “I just thought we needed an out and I needed to pick my team up somehow,” Showers said about the double play, “and I saw the ball go up the middle. The ball was to the left of me and it was quicker to take it to the bag myself to get the double play. I saw the bag, took the opportunity, and it happened.” And Showers wasn’t finished yet. She led off the bottom of the second inning with a long home run over the right-center field wall that gave P-O the lead at 1-0. “We figured out that she (Payne) relied

on her curve ball,” Showers said. “I saw the first pitch, and it was a curve, and I saw the second pitch, and it was a riser. I thought, hey, this is just like the scouting report. The next pitch, I saw it coming outside and I kinda went with the pitch and it went flying.” P-O went to its short game in the third inning to build on its lead. Bainey opened the inning with a double, and she was moved to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Alyssa Shedlock. That brought up Frank who laid down a perfect bunt along the third-base line that easily scored Bainey with P-O’s second run. “I thought that squeeze at that point was a big play,” Jim Gonder said. “It gave us an extra run.” Ahead now by two runs, P-O used a single by Showers, an error, and a wild pitch to put runners on second and third with one out. Aisha Goss popped up for the second out, but then the Mounties did what they’ve done so many times this season — strike with two outs. And Carly Gonder did it this time with a two-run single to left field that made the score 4-0. “I think Carly came up clutch today,” Jim Gonder (Carly’s uncle) said. “That’s what you need a kid like that to do. She’s had a tough year and that validated why we have faith in her.” Like Showers, Carly Gonder wasn’t finished yet, either. Bellewood made a run in the sixth inning when Anna Wolf, Emily Nagle, and Jacki Finn all singled to lead off the inning, with Wolf scoring on Finn’s hit. Burge struck out Lauren Snyder for the first out, but Payne then hit a line drive to center field that bounced off the glove of a sprinting Frank that scored Nagle and made it 4-2. Burge bore down after that and avoided further damage by striking out the next two hitters to end the inning. With only a two run lead and Bellewood

Us making it there means everything to everyone. “This team has a lot of heart. We may not be the biggest girls, but we want this so much.”

Ahrenhold recalls glory days of Penn State football Frank Ahrenhold, a former defensive tackle for Penn State, and I have been friends for a long time. We used to talk a lot about Penn State football and what it was like to play for Joe Paterno in the early years of his coaching career. It was all fascinating to me, but one game in which Ahrenhold played and starred has always stood out in my mind, and the minds of many, many longtime PSU fans, as one of the most memorable football games in all of Penn State history. Ahrenhold played for the Nittany Lions Pat Rothdeutsch covers Penn State from 1968 to 1972, and football for The he was awarded one of Centre County only two game balls Gazette. Email given out after one of him at sports@ Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most centrecounty iconic victories: the 30-6 stomping of Texas in the 1972 Cotton Bowl. This was the game that showed the country how to stop the wishbone and that brought Penn State, once and for all, into the national discussion. I recently talked to Frank about that game again, along with other things about Penn State, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to share what had to say. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a well-known story. Penn State was undefeated in 1968 and finished second in the national polls. The next season, Penn State went undefeated again and, after Richard Nixon declared Texas the best team in the country during a visit to Texas, the Nittany Lions were controversially voted second in the polls once again. Needless to say, this did not sit well with Paterno, his team, or anyone else interested in Penn State football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;68 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;69 teams that ran off 22 games in a row,â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a couple Orange Bowl victories, and we finished No.2 in the polls both years. And then we came to sort of a down year, after Mike Reid and Steve Smear and all of those guys graduated. We lost three games that season, and I think we were offered the Liberty Bowl or something like that, and we just said the heck with it and passed on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So anyway, people were saying that we were just another flash in the pan. You know, another eastern school that made a little bit of noise and then at the end of the day just kind of disappeared into the background. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I came in with a talented recruiting class. I came in with guys like Franco Harris, Lydell Mitchell, Gary Grey, Dick Joyner, just big time Pennsylvania kids, big 33 kids, solid recruiting class. We were chaffing a little about the fact that people were dismissing us. So we saw our chance to make some noise in the 1971 season, and we came into that year with a chip on our shoulder and I think the staff did as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started off strong, too, and just kept on going. We went into Syracuse, who was supposed to be the team to beat in the east, and just crushed them. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they got a first down until the second half. We


ran off the rest of them until we went to Tennessee, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, that was one of those games where we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out of our own way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we fumbled three punts and stuff like that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and ended up losing the game. It was just so disheartening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was our only loss, and then we were offered a shot at the Cotton Bowl. For all of us guys on that team, that meant a lot because we all felt that we got snubbed when Texas got that championship and we thought this was our chance at retribution. We saw an opportunity to shut some people up, to be honest with you. We had a good team, and we knew we did.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was also Texas, so it was payback time. We had a chance to beat a big-time southern school on their own turf, and do it convincingly.â&#x20AC;? So the stage was set in front of a national audience to face the Longhorns and their wishbone offense, which had yet to be even slowed down. The Lions, however, had a plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we had to get them going sideways,â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were an eight-man front, basically a stack-eight. The only two down linemen we ever played were the two defensive tackles. So our job was just to create havoc. Get on their guards and drive them into the backfield, and have the linebackers just scrape off that. So basically, we dared their five offensive linemen to block our four, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there was a team in the country that could do that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before the game, Joe (Paterno) was pretty quiet,â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just kept reminding us about the opportunity we had to put Penn State back on the map. When we went out and started the game, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what, after the first two series I knew we were going to win. I knew they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t block us, and I knew they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run the ball against us. We got them going sideways, and with the speed of our guys like (John) Skorupan and (Bruce) Bannon, it was three-and-out, three-and-out. Those guys had a long day; they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much yardage, let me tell you.â&#x20AC;? Texas took a 6-3 lead into the locker room at halftime, but Penn State scored 27 unanswered points in the second half and won the game going away. Mitchell led Penn State with 146 yards rushing (he has the offensive game ball) while Harris added 47 and Tom Donchez 29. Texas did manage 159 yards rushing, mostly in the first half, but did not come close to scoring after halftime. It was the first time in 80 games that Texas was held without a touchdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the game,â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold said, laughing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember going into the locker room and Joe was just beside himself. He was really excited. It was the only time I ever saw him kind of lose a little control in an after-game environment. He caught himself and then looked around to see if any of the press had walked in, but then he realized he was OK. We were all just crazy.â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold had a monster game. He recorded 15 tackles, stacked up the fullback and the middle of the Texas offense, and spent what seemed like the entire day in the Texas backfield. The TV network gave Bannon the defensive player of the game award, but in the locker room, Ahrenhold was awarded the defensive game ball.

PENN STATE running back Franco Harris delivers a crushing block during the 1972 Cotton Bowl against Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ball has a little Cotton Bowl logo,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it has the dates and all that. And it has the score: Penn State 30, Texas 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That game, I think, took Penn State out of what was that regional funk. People said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wait a second, these guys can play with anybody on a national stage,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Penn State just kept building from there. It all started, though, in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;68 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;69.â&#x20AC;? Ahrenhold, who was originally from Long Island, is now what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;semi-retiredâ&#x20AC;? and still living close to Abington, Pa. where he has lived and worked with his wife, Sue, since graduating. Like many other letter winners, he attended Joe Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral services last year and he has strong feelings about what happened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all of us were in shock,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and although we knew he was sick, none of us expected this. We counted, and we think that there were close to a thousand lettermen who came back on that Tuesday. It was an unbelievable scene.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great to see all of those people, and also unbelievably sad that this guy was to us the one constant. I played for the guy, and we had our differences. I struggled with his discipline sometimes, but as I aged, the more I began to understand. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say, the older I got, the smarter he got.â&#x20AC;? How about the new staff? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien well, but first and foremost, I wish him the best. Because at the end of the day, he is Penn State now. We, my family and I, bleed blue and white. And we want that success to go on, with the same honor that Joe did it.â&#x20AC;? I am sure Ahrenhold also wishes, like the rest of us, for some more recruiting classes like the one he came in with. And while we are at it, maybe more defining games, like that 1972 Cotton Bowl or last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overtime win over Wisconsin, lurking somewhere in the near future for Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien.

There was good news and bad news for State College as the AAAA baseball and softball playoffs swung in to action last week. The bad news, of course, was the Little Lady Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tough, 1-0 loss to Central Mountain in the opening round of the District 6 softball playoffs last Wednesday. Central Mountain pushed across a run in the first inning when Kayla Glossner slammed an RBI double into left-center field that scored teammate Jessica Strouse with the only run of the game. After that, State College pitcher Jess Henderson silenced the Lady Wildcats while giving up only six hits, two walks, and that single run. The problem was that the Little Lady Lion offense couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a run across against Central Mountain pitcher Rachael Shady. They did have chances, most notably in the second and third innings when SC put a runner on third base with less than two outs. Each time, however, Shady was able to pitch herself out of the trouble with no damage done. The loss ended the season for the No. 3 seeded Little Lions and also ended their quest to win their sixth District 6 championship in seven years. No. 2 seed Central Mountain now advances to play No. 1 Mifflin County for the district championship on May 29th at Penn State. The Little Lion baseball team, on the other hand, had no trouble scoring runs in its AAAA first round, 10-0 rout of No. 4 seeded Altoona. In a game that took two days to complete because of bad weather, SC scored nine runs in the first inning against the Mountain Lions and was cruising home for the win when Mother Nature interfered. A heavy rain storm halted play in the top of the fifth inning, forcing the game to be delayed and resumed on Friday afternoon. But there was little doubt about the outcome. State College took less than a half-hour to end things in the sixth inning when Dan Fry scored on a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice grounder by Jason Costa closed out Altoona due to the 10-run rule. State College was led on offense by Fry, who went 3-for4 with two runs scored and three RBIs. Kenny Craig went 2for-3 with two RBIs, and Tanner Witter went 2-3. Nick Raquet (4-2) got the win for the Little Lions.


TIM WEIGHT/For The Gazette

DESPITE HAVING a young squad, Bellefonte Area High School softball head coach Gregg Kohlhepp pointed his Lady Raiders in the right direction this season. State College traveled to Altoona on May 29 for a district championship showdown against No. 2 Central Mountain and star Von Walker. In AAA softball, sitting around for over an hour waiting for a rainstorm to stop did not seem to hurt Bellefonte in its opening round game against No. 2 Sumerset. Already ahead by five runs, the Lady Raiders waited patiently while the field was made playable after the fourthinning delay and then kept piling it on in their big, 10-3 upset of favored Sumerset. Sarah Menna and Erin Pugh, making their first starts for the Lady Raiders, led the team with three hits each and had a combined five RBIs. Menna delivered the three-run double in the sixth inning that all but put the game away for Bellefonte. Vanessa Cooper also came through for the Raiders with a three-run homer in the fourth inning, and Stevi Confer pitched a five-hitter to earn the win. Bellfonte (11-10) took on Hollidaysburg on May 29. The Lady Raiders were looking for their 13th district championship in the last 14 seasons.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT CPYO to present concert on June 2 By ANNE WALKER For The Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Central Pennsylvania Youth Orchestra (CPYO), under the direction of Conductor Greg Woodbridge, will present a concert at 4 p.m. on June 2 at Esber Recital Hall on the Penn State campus. Tickets are $10. Woodbridge describes CPYO as “very intelligent musically,” and adds that they “pick things up quickly and they study with great people in a solid tradition of musicianship.”

If you go What: Central Pennsylvania Youth Orchestra When: 4 p.m., June 2 Where: Esber Recital Hall The program will open with the overture to “The Secret of Susanna” by 20th century Italian composer Ermanno WolfFerrari. A light, fast, lively piece, according to Woodbridge, it contains “a lot of fun licks.” The second piece, the first movement of the Bruch Violin Concerto in G Minor, features co-concertmaster, Juliette Greer. Greer recently took second place in the Keller Competition, an annual event organized by the Nittany Valley Symphony Orchestra. The selection will allow Greer to demonstrate the full range of the violin. “She plays with an emotion that belies her 14 years,” Woodbridge said, “she plays like an old soul.” John Williams’ theme from “Schindler’s List” will follow the passion of the Bruch piece. Williams wrote the simple, haunting melody specifically for Itzhak Perlman. Finally the program will conclude with Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony Number 4, “The Italian Symphony.” Inspired by sites and sounds of Italy, the symphony opens with a bright, sunny movement. The second movement, written in a minor key, gives the impression of a somber religious

The fourth movement incorporates two rousing, cheerful Italian dance arrangements: the saltarello and the tarantella. “It’s a bubbly work,” Woodbridge said, “and it brings the evening to a spectacular close.” This season marks Woodbridge’s third with CPYO. The 35-40 young musicians he directs come from a variety of back-

grounds, a fact which Woodbridge finds particularly appealing. “They’re sons and daughters of professors, business people, teachers and all different professions. It’s interesting because each one of them has a unique perspective,” he said. He also feels that CPYO has an outstanding quality due to the access to good training. Many of the performers study with music faculty members from Penn State.

South Hills kicks off free summer music picnic series on June 2

They have also had the opportunity to perform with world-renowned soloists including violinist James Lyon, and pianists Marylene Dosse and Cecilia Dunoyer. And on Sunday they will share their virtuosity with a Centre County audience. Woodbridge says he hopes the audience “will come away celebrating the wonderful opportunity for youth in our area and I hope they come away thinking we’re lucky.”


From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School is ready to kick off its annual Music Picnic Series on June 2 with the Tarnished 6. For the next 12 weeks, the community is invited to visit South Hills for Sunday evenings filled with bluesy, jazzy or swing sounds. For 24 years, the Mazza family, the owners of South Hills School, has offered the public a summer setting to sit back and listen to entertaining and toe-tapping music on the school lawn at 480 Waupelani Drive in State College. It’s all free of charge. Starting at 5 p.m. each Sunday night, large tents provide a comfortable setting for guests who want to picnic on the lawn or picnic tables.

Vocalist Barth to lead ‘South Pacific SING!’ By ANNE WALKER

If you go

For The Gazette

BELLEFONTE — Anyone with a secret — or not-so-secret — desire to sing in public will have that opportunity this weekend when vocalist Jessie Barth leads a “South Pacific SING!” at the Reynolds Mansion in Bellefonte. The event will take place at 7 p.m. on June 1 and at 2 p.m. on June 2 with an admission price of $25. Barth strongly suggests reserving seats ahead of time. Anyone interested can email her at or call the Reynolds mansion at (814) 353-8407. Pianist Tricia Andriaccio and percussionist Carol Lindsey will accompany the vocals. Barth, a Rodgers and Hammerstein devotee and former music teacher at Bellefonte High School, led a similar SING! in April. She refers to these events as “nonstop happiness,” and feels that gathering community members to join in song generates not only fun, but an uplifting feeling of closeness rarely experienced. Two women who attended the earlier SING! agree with her opinion. Mary Ann Bell of Bellefonte says she “loved every minute of it. It’s a joy to be able to sing like that.” Bell studied voice and piano, but she stresses that one needn’t have a musical background to participate and enjoy the event. “My husband really enjoyed it even though he’s not a singer,” she said. State College resident Kay Kustanbauter said: “I was thrilled to learn about it because I love to sing.” About 40 people showed up to join the fun. “Everyone was smiling and feeling good,” Kustanbauter recalled, “getting together and singing is such a positive thing.” This weekend’s event will feature songs

from “South Pacific,” the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical based on James Michener’s “Tales of the South Pacific.” It will also include readings from Michener’s work pertaining to “South Pacific,” as part of the entertainment. “The Hammerstein pieces are easy to sing,” Bell added, alleviating any fears anyone might have about vocally challenging songs. “It’s the best of theatre,” Barth said, “when people are involved and actually participating. It makes a physical relationship with the music.” The weekend’s event will also include readings from Michener’s work pertaining to “South Pacific,” as part of the entertainment. Barth has devoted years to her fascination with Rodgers and Hammerstein and she shares her contagious enthusiasm with others through her voice and theirs. She feels that, through song, people become closer and more joyful. Singing, according to Barth, can even help heal. “People don’t forget music,” she said. She tells the story of a woman who brought her aging mother to one of the sing-alongs. The elderly woman had trouble remembering names, but knew the songs and joined the others in singing. “People just glow because they’re participating,” she said.

Rusted Root to celebrate anniversary at Tussey Mountain By ALLISON GIANNOTTI

BOALSBURG — Commemorating its 20th year as a band and recent release of its new album, “The Movement,” Rusted Root will perform on June 1 at the Tussey Mountain Amphitheater. The new, fan-funded album showcases Rusted Root’s ability to seamlessly fuse bluegrass instrumentation, African percussion and bluesy vocals into a five-star album. With eight albums under their belt and more than three million records sold worldwide, the rhythmically charged ensemble attributes the success of their newest album to their fans. In a recent interview with Relix, Rusted Root founder and front man, Michael Glabicki said: “We had some fans come into the studio for a day and they were part of the record’s energy. It’s getting back to the days of us starting out with our fans being up close and a part of the process.” The band will play old hits like “Send Me On My Way” and “Ecstasy” in addition to popular tracks from “The Movement.” With a dynamic set, listeners will join Rusted Root on a beautiful and magical journey. “The new music in the set really has transformed the live show,” Glabicki said. “It is differ-

Students develop skills at PSU’s youth summer camps From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — As the school year winds down, many young people will soon arrive on Penn State’s University Park campus for youth camps designed for fun, education and a taste of campus life. New this year, the School of Visual Arts Summer Art Camp (July 7 to 12) will teach high school students who are interested in the visual arts how to create a portfolio of their work. The camp’s theme, “Portfolio Processes,” underscores the goals of the program — to show campers how to create exciting artworks in different media and to develop a digital portfolio. The camp coincides with the 2013 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. Graeme Sullivan, director of the School of Visual Arts, says the camp will put artists from ninthto 12th-grade in a vibrant studio experience where they’ll learn about drawing, photography, printmaking and sculpture using digital technology. “We want to provide a safe atmosphere where students can push ideas,” said Sullivan. “We’ve created a supportive learning environment for students to interact with faculty and their peers so they can take a serious approach to their work. This camp will expand their skills and introduce them to new kinds of processes.”

THE SCHOOL OF VISUAL Arts Summer Art Camp gives young artists a vibrant studio experience where they learn about drawing, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Sullivan reviews student portfolios as part of the application process to the School of Visual Arts and said the camp will help high school students appreciate the importance of a strong portfolio. He says images and ideas are an indication of how an artist thinks and makes decisions. “There are always new ways to look at information,” Sullivan said. “These high school students have always had an interest in art and we can help them understand their own ways of thinking and apply that to new materials.” There are scholarships available — two full and two half — for the School of Visual Arts Summer Art Camp.

Surviving the economic roller coaster It twists, it turns, it goes up, it comes down and it even has the uncanny ability to make many of us feel a bit wobbly and nauseous. The economic roller coaster has taken all of us for a wild ride, particularly over the past few years. So what can you do now to help gain back some control over your financial life? Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, a not-for-profit financial services organization, offers the following timeless tips to help you survive the ride. ■ Pay down your debt, but don’t forget to pay yourself too. Generally speaking, the sooner you pay off your debt — especially consumer debt like Randy Reeder is a that of credit cards — the better off representative of you’ll be. However, also set aside Thrivent Financial. money on a regular basis for an emerHe can be reached gency. at (814) 353-3303. ■ Track, then manage, your cash flow. It’s impossible to manage your money if you don’t have a feel for what you take in and where your money goes. A budget can be a real lifesaver in terms of ensuring that you have a solid financial foundation.


■ Insure the fundamentals (health, property, income and life). Everything you own is at risk IF your fundamental needs of your life are not properly insured. A financial professional can assist you in determining the appropriate level of insurance for your specific circumstances. ■ Grow your job skills. Perhaps one of the most neglected of our assets is our job skills. Continually seek to grow and enhance your value to your current employer or potential employers by growing your job skills through continuing education, volunteer experiences, and more. ■ Direct your bonus or raise toward financial priorities. If you are lucky enough to have received a bonus or raise, put it towards a financial priority, like paying down your debt, creating an emergency savings, continuing education, or building your retirement account. ■ Invest for the long-term. It may be tempting to discontinue participation in your company’s 401(k) account. Don’t. Letting emotions override sound economic decisions could be a big mistake. It is wise to continue to participate in a 401(k) program, especially if your company is matching your contribution. Consider time, not timing. When will you need the money? The strategy of someone 25 years away from retirement versus just one or two is obviously going to be different. Make sure your portfolio is rebalanced and is appropriately allocated for your risk tolerance, but also make sure you are ready to take advantage of

a market rebound. ■ Build your financial knowledge. Read financial publications; listen to financial shows; talk to friends and financial professionals. The more you know, the better decisions you will make concerning the financial choices you have. ■ Talk with loved ones about location of financial documents. It is especially important for senior parents and adult children to discuss this matter. Every family will differ regarding their comfort level around discussing specifics of end-of-life and healthcare issues, but all families should, at a minimum, inform their loved ones where specific financial documents can be found (e.g., health care directives; long-term care and life insurance policies; pension and retirement account information). ■ Meet with a financial professional and work with a strong company. A financial professional can be invaluable in helping you create and track a financial program appropriate to your goals. Work with someone you trust; someone who has an excellent reputation and plenty of positive references. Ask the right questions to make sure the company or companies you will be working with are strong and stable. ■ Live generously. It is easy to get caught up in everything going on in our world. Don’t forget to give back. Make financial donations when you can and look for opportunities to volunteer and share.

Success, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder Solutions to help you grow DAVID M. MASTOVICH

(Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of three articles based on content from recent presentations made to college students.)

While preparing a speech for a group of college seniors, I focused on the importance of a lifelong thirst for knowledge and achieving positive, incremental change. The end result was David M. a presentation with Mastovich is three key themes: president of Success, like beauMASSolutions Inc. ty, should be in the eye For more of the beholder. You information, go to decide what you want to do, how you want to live and what you want to achieve. Potential employers need to know what you are capable of and how you think. Use the Seinfeld PR Approach and tell your story. What you think is nothing can be inter-

esting to others. People will want you on their team if you are organized, efficient and get things done. When it comes to success, regardless of where we are in our lives, we should ask and answer these success related questions: ■ What’s your definition of success? ■ How do you measure it? ■ Do you believe you can attain it? Early on, we tend to define success based on what we see and like in others. We compare ourselves and ask if we measure up. The healthier approach is to realize that success, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Take the time to decide what you want to do and how you want to live. Be clear. Put it to paper or computer. Your definition will probably evolve over time as you move through life’s different phases. But if you don’t invest the time into clearly defining your goals and values again and again, you might look back and wonder “What if?” As for measuring success, you also decide on the metrics. Set specific goals and develop action plans to achieve them.

Skills of Central Pa. names Pardee as CEO From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — Skills of Central Pennsylvania, Inc., announced Dr. Wendy Pardee as Skills’ new president and CEO, beginning June 24, in concert with Dr. David M. “Mike” Rice’s impending retirement later this summer. As the president and CEO, Pardee will work directly with the board of directors and Skills’ senior management staff to provide leadership to the organization and further the Skills mission. She comes to Skills after serving as chief financial officer for more than 14 years with Community Guidance Center, a private non-profit outpatient mental health clinic in Indiana, Pa. “The board is pleased to have found someone in Dr. Pardee whose experience, energy and enthusiasm will take Skills in exciting new directions while maintaining the quality services we are known for and insist upon,” commented Ann Stacey, chairwoman of the board of directors. Rice announced his plans to retire to

the board of directors in August, launching the creation of a search committee for his replacement. He has served as Skills’ president and CEO since 2000. “Dr. Rice’s outstanding service to Skills is exemplified by our strong fiscal health, programmatic growth in 16 counties, and over 1000 dedicated care providers. We credit Dr. Rice’s leadership with much of our current success. He will be missed,” Stacey said. Established in 1960, Skills of Central Pennsylvania provides a wide variety of services, primarily focused on supporting individuals with disabilities and mental illness so they can live self-determined lives throughout its sixteen county service area. Skills of Central Pennsylvania, Inc. is committed to creating opportunities, providing choice and support and promoting recovery to enhance all aspects of people’s lives. More information about Skills can be found on the website

Be realistic but aspirational. Planning and putting details into the plan enable you to be realistic. Aspiring to achieve challenging stretch goals ensures you don’t settle. Whether you are a college student, seasoned veteran, retiree or anywhere in between, you decide your definition of success and whether you are achieving it. Define it, plan for it, work it, live it.

That’s a big part of the measurement. But the biggest part is based on something subjective: happiness. How much do you enjoy what you are doing in your personal and professional life? Are you happy most of the time? If not, make the necessary changes. The third question is related to whether or not you believe you can achieve your definition of success.
