‘Coats for Kids’ spreads warmth Centre County. Through the program, new and slightly used coats and jackets are donated to various locations throughout the county, and then delivered to those in need. “In 2011 we received approximately 900 coats and distributed approximately 700,” Williams said. The program, which began three years ago, initially started to help kids, Williams said, but since has evolved into assisting all age groups. Williams said all coats are distributed in Centre County. Leftover coats are put into storage and saved for the following year, he said. All types of

STATE COLLEGE — To ensure those in need receive a coat this winter, The Salvation Army of Centre County has once again launched Coats for Kids, an annual campaign to collect clothing items for people of all ages. A partnership of the Salvation Army, 3WZ radio, Balfurd Cleaners and Mount Nittany Medical Center, the program launched on Nov. 9 and will go through Jan. 11, 2013, said Steve Williams, program and project manager at The Salvation Army of

coats are accepted. “There are many people who work to make this program happen,” Williams said, “and without the folks at Balfurds, 3WZ radio, The Salvation Army volunteers and employees (and) all the drop-off locations, the program would not happen and we would have friends and neighbors in need.” The Salvation Army’s duty as part of the project is to work with clients and help them address the needs of the community, while Balfurd works out the logistics of pick-up cleaning

cial the day is and what it means.” According to Correll, the school has been doing a program for 10 years. On this day, the patriotism overflowed. Each grade made a special banner to pay tribute to the military. In addition to everyone reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the national anthem, there was a special

STATE COLLEGE — Few local leaders have more impact on the quality of life in Centre County than Steven Brown, president and CEO of the Mount Nittany Medical Center. Since his arrival in the region, Brown has overseen the unprecedented growth of the region’s single most important health care provider. While many of the projects were already in the planning stages, it was Brown’s vision and leadership that has seen the growth through to fruition. It may be a case of the right leader emerging at the right time. “I have been here two-anda-half years. The vision for Mount Nittany Medical Center was in place. But I felt it was STEVEN BROWN important that we get moving, do something with the many gifts provided by the community,” he said. Brown explained that he encouraged the Medical Center board to take on all the projects at one time, rather than in phases. “We were able to save by mobilizing and getting it all done at once,” he said. “After we expand to five operating rooms, I think we’re going to take a breath.” In the past few years, Brown has overseen the

Marion Walker students honor vets By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

BELLEFONTE — With red, white and blue on display at Marion Walker Elementary School, the school honored our nation’s military on Nov. 9. Just a couple of days before the official Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11, the teachers and students of Marion Walker Elementary held a special assembly to

honor those who have served the United States of America in some capacity. The Veteran’s Day assembly is a tradition at the school. “We have a lot of boys and girls whose family members have been deployed or are on active duty. We just want to honor all the veterans and the soldiers,” explained first-grade teacher Patricia Correll. “We try to do a program every year to let the kids know how spe-

Crowds flock to sample flavor of new Trader Joe’s By MARJORIE S. MILLER mmiller@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — They had been waiting patiently ever since they heard the news. The new Trader Joe’s was the talk around town for months, and even longer for many. And finally, on Nov. 9 the doors opened and the people flooded in. The excitement was hard to miss. Some customers knew exactly how to navigate through the store: produce, then dairy, then onto the frozen cheesecakes. Others, however, seemed distracted by all the choices and couldn’t figure out where to go first. Some were on a mission to stock their pantries and freezers with everything from fish and cheese to coffee and pumpkin butter. Others, however, just wanted to take home a few items to sample: some chewy biscotti or a ready-made salad. The parking lot was packed and the checkout lines stretched down the aisles, but that didn’t affect Opinion .............................. 7 Health & Wellness ............. 8 Remember Your Loved One With A Gazette Memoriam.

the moods of the customers or employees, who were both friendly and polite. Justin Hewitt, store manager and “captain” of the Patriot Lane store, said the response so far has been great. “The anticipation and the welcoming we’ve received from the community has been phenomenal,” he said Friday. “(Their) excitement matches ours.” What makes Trader Joe’s different from other grocery stores, Hewitt said, is that it offers both wellknown name brand items as well as special and diverse options. “(It’s) a unique neighborhood grocery store,” he said. Dorothy Lutz, of State College, was browsing the dairy section with her husband Ken in the late morning Friday. Dorothy said she had been to Trader Joe’s before

and delivery to the distribution site, Williams said. The radio station is the “marketing arm” what has been able to identify and work with businesses that are drop-off points for donations, he said. Williams said the main goal of this year’s campaign, as in years past, is to make sure all in need receive a coat. “If we had to set a goal I would think we would want to match last year,” he said.

Trader Joe’s, from page 1 in Washington, D.C. When she heard it was coming to State College she wasn’t sure if she believed it, she said. “My daughter’s crazy about it,� she said. “The reputation preceded it.� Ken said he’s excited to have a Trader Joe’s in State College because it offers so much variety and is a “very good store all over.� “It’s a classy option,� he said. Irmgard Lee, also of State College, said she is a “big Trader Joe’s fan� and makes sure to stop at one every time she visits her son in Washington, D.C. “I’ve been looking forward to this day for one year,� she said. Lee said some of her favorite store items are the imported cheeses and dried fruit. “They have wonderful prices for certain things,� she said. “I always have a chocolate ganache cake in my freezer.� Michelle Pelick, of Bellefonte, said she became a Trader Joe’s enthusiast 15 or 20 years ago when it first came to San Francisco, where she’s originally from. “I’ve had friends ship me stuff,� she said. “I’m a huge fan.�

What Pelick finds most pleasing about Trader Joe’s is the “extremely diverse selection,â€? she said, especially when it comes to cultural foods. The items are easy to prepare and delicious, she said. “The quality ‌ I’ve never been disappointed in anything,â€? Pelick said. Jen Finkle, of State College, is no newbie when it comes to Trader Joe’s, but she’s “very excitedâ€? to have one in the area. Having this new shopping option, she said, is beneficial because it offers a lot more organic produce, meats and dairy. Another perk, Finkle said, is that Trader Joe’s doesn’t use plastic grocery bags in an effort to be green. “I love how environmentally conscious they are,â€? she said. Finkle also said she likes how well Trader Joe’s treats its employees. “I think that’s really important,â€? she said. Katharina Halperin, a New Yorker who lives in State College, couldn’t contain her joy at the opening of the store. “I kissed the ground when I walked in,â€? she said. Donned in a lei given out by Trader Joe’s employees, Halperin pointed out various items in her cart. The Alaskan cod, she said, is easy to make.

Sometimes TRAGEDY is just a matter of REALLY BAD TIMING.

MICHELLE PELICK, of Bellefonte, peruses one of the many frozen food sections at the new Trader Joe’s. “Throw (them) into sauce,� she said, and “(you) get protein.� Her philosophy, she said, is “there’s nothing wrong with eating good, delicious food,� noting the pumpkin cheesecake, also in her cart. Halperin said before the Trader Joe’s opened locally, she wrote letters requesting a State College location. Today, she said, the town has made a lot of progress when it comes to food and grocery shopping options. “I’m doing my thing today,� she said. The State College Trader Joe’s, located off North Atherton Street, is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For more information about Trader Joe’s, visit its website at www.traderjoes.com.

There was also an emotional music video that had the students clapping and cheering. “We really try to get the children involved because they are such a big part of this. A lot of the guests we have are family members of students and teachers here at the school,� Correll said. Each branch of the military was represented at the assembly. Following the presentation, the students went back to their classrooms and the guests spoke individually to different grades. Beth Ashe of Zion is a major in the United States Marine Corps who was one of several guest speakers to visit the school. “This is fantastic. It’s such an honor to be recognized by our own children and this community. I think that’s what means the most. I hope this is going on in every school across America,� Ashe said.

Brown, from page 1 creation and growth of a long list of facility improvements. These include:

A CANCER CENTER

■ A three-story, expanded and separately housed information technology department. ■ An emergency room, renovated to meet future needs. ■ A new patient entrance, separated from the emergency room ■ A basic care unit for those who don’t need emergency care. ■ 165 new parking spaces. ■ Expanding to five operating rooms with the capability to add five more. “We have built what the community needs here,” Brown said. “This is a special place. I look at everything we do as earning the trust of the communities we serve. That’s a pretty big deal.” Brown noted that because the MNMC employs about 2,000 individuals, it is a major contributor to the economic development of the region. He places a great deal of emphasis on customer service. “We are people helping people,” he said. “We really are taking care of our friends and neighbors. So we are in the people business. That’s why care here is so personal. Our people care about their patients, and that’s a big deal. Our staff cares about you, not just for you.” While there has been tremendous growth and expansion at Mount Nittany Medical Center, Brown believes there is still a perception, in the minds of some, that better care can be found elsewhere, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville and Penn State Hershey Medical Center, to name a few. “I chalk that up to experience and culture,” Brown said. “We are working hard to change that perception. This is where you should come. I would like to see helicopters coming to us, instead of taking (patients) away. Our partnership with Penn State is helping us immensely.” Brown believes that by listening carefully to the community, the Mount Nittany Medical Center will continue to grow and improve.

“What we want to do is cut costs, especially for people who are in and out. I think the community is really going to like that. My philosophy is to stay ahead of the curve.” Big changes are in the offing for the health care industry, once The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is fully implemented. “There is a lot of good (in the bill) and a lot of bad,” Brown stated. “I like the wellness and prevention programs and penalties for people with bad outcomes. But in 2014 we are going to be reimbursed differently than now. And how are they going to pay for this care? The fact is they did take money out of Medicare and will take it out of Medicaid.” There is no question that there are going to be changes in the way hospitals are reimbursed for services and how they will be evaluated, including the auditing of their Medicare billings, he said, and additional regulations will mean additional costs. And what about the rationing of health care? “Other countries ration healthcare,” Brown said. “It’s not a good thing. United States health care is great. If you want to wait months for a gall bladder operation, be my guest. There is no such thing as free health care.” Brown worked in Seattle for eight years and found that many Canadians came down for health care. Looking toward the future, Brown believes the greatest challenge facing the Mount Nittany Medical Center is increased regulation. “And we must continue to thrive in the face of that. Many doctors will bail out. That’s why they want to work for hospitals. Family practices will be hurt most,” he said. “Our biggest opportunity is going to be found in working together. We are next to the largest employer in the commonwealth. Our relationship with Penn State is very exciting to me. Working with a medical school helps us on the way to my vision of becoming the most trusted teaching hospital in the region. This is truly a wonderful place.”

School board discusses community engagement By LAURA NICHOLS StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — As the State College Area School District begins to make movement on the high school project, the board of directors emphasized a priority of transparency and engaging the entire community. Immediately following a brief regular board meeting, which began at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, the State College Area Board of Directors discussed ways to include the community in each step of the decision-making process and keep it relevant and exciting for each of them, from students to residents who don’t have children in the district. The district’s new educational planner, Amy Yurko, from Brainspaces, Inc., said she recently toured the school with a group of students to gauge how they utilize the high school, whether it be where they eat lunch to carry backpacks versus stashing supplies in lockers. No vote could be taken on Monday night,

but board members said they want to find a way to poll the community regarding the location of the new State College Area High School. Many members said they want to see it stay where it is, on Westerly Parkway. Previously, community members expressed the same sentiment, though it was too small of a sample size to draw an adequate conclusion. “There’s a lot of support sitting around that table for what our community has been telling us for a decade,” Dr. Jim Pawelczyk said. Director of Physical Plant Ed Poprik said there is a plan to poll the community through social media, phone calls, online forms and write-in ballots. The first survey could be conducted by February, he said. The referendum process was also explained, as it could begin in Oct. 2013. The process would ask the community to vote on one question the board decides to ask that would decide whether the new high school could be built.

Preliminary hearing set By LAURA NICHOLS StateCollege.com

HARRISBURG — Three former top Penn State administrators will share the same preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. on Dec. 13 in Harrisburg, Dauphin County Court officials announced on Tuesday. Judge William Wenner, who arraigned each man, will preside over the preliminary hearing of former Penn State President Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz. If necessary, the hearing will continue to Dec. 14, according to a press release. On Nov. 1, Attorney General Linda Kelly released a new grand jury presentment that indicted Spanier for the first time and Curley and Schultz for a second time in connection

to their role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. In what Kelly called a “conspiracy of silence,” Spanier, Curley and Schultz were each charged with perjury, endangering the welfare of children, failure to report, criminal conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Spanier was arraigned on $125,000 unsecured bail on Nov. 7 and Curley and Schultz were each arraigned on $50,000 unsecured bail on Nov. 2. Sandusky, 68, was sentenced on Oct. 9 to 30-60 years in prison for his sex crimes against children. He was moved to SCI Greene, a maximum security prison, where he will serve out the duration of his sentence. Updated public information regarding the cases is available online.

Petraeus departure a waste of talent By Scripps Howard News Service There is this to be said about Gen. David Petraeus’ resignation after 38 years of exceptional service to this country: What a waste. Petraeus was the model of what the modern military is seeking in its top officers: a combination of warrior, leader, diplomat and scholar with a doctorate from Princeton. It is not exaggeration to say he was the nation’s most esteemed military leader. Driven to succeed both militarily and intellectually, he became a brigadier general at 46, successfully oversaw the “surge” that allowed us to extricate ourselves from Iraq, moved on to U.S. Central Command that oversees global U.S. military operations and then at the behest of President Barack Obama accepted what was effectively a demotion to take over the faltering U.S. effort in Afghanistan. (Curiously, he replaced another general who had to resign in disgrace.) In September 2011, again at Obama’s behest, he returned to Washington to take over the CIA. His resume and careful cultivation of Congress led to speculation of a political future, if not as a presidential candidate certainly as a running mate. Sometime after his return, according to emerging accounts, he took up with Paula Broadwell, 40, a West Point graduate and Army reserve officer who had written a glowing biography of Petraeus. The affair came to the attention of the FBI when Broadwell sent threatening emails to a friend of the Petraeus family whom she apparently perceived as a threat. The FBI found that there had been no laws broken and no threat to national security but reported the affair to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper who immediately advised Petraeus to resign, which he did. An ordinary politician might have been tempted to ride it out, with the obligatory confessional press conference, the wronged wife standing stoically in the background and a boilerplate plea “to put this incident behind us, give my family the privacy to heal and get on with the work of this great country.” Petraeus had no choice but to resign. The country, including several of its presidential commanders in chief, may find the military’s adherence to a code of honor and fidelity quaint, but the uniformed services do not. Petraeus was nothing if not a soldier. The general and his wife of 38 years, Holly, herself an effective advocate for military families, will reach whatever accommodation they can. Petraeus’ career in public service is not necessarily over; this country does have an unwritten statute of limitations. Bill Clinton has been a senior statesman for years now.

What does Obama’s victory mean? With President Barack Obama’s defeat of Republican challenger Mitt Romney, earning a second four-year term in the White House, Republicans are already trying to figure out what went wrong and Democrats are basking in a satisfied glow. What did each party learn that can guide it — and the country — in coming years? Did Americans signal support for higher taxes on the rich? Bigger government? Or something else entirely? Columnists Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk debate the issue.

JOEL MATHIS Here’s a bit of friendly advice to my friends in the Republican Party: It’s time to stop being so afraid of minorities. It’s the only way you’ll survive future elections. Save me the talk about how you’re not afraid of minorities. Your party spent 40 years pursuing the “Southern Strategy” of demonizing blacks to curry favor with Southern whites. Joel Mathis, joelmmathis@ Your party gmail.com, is a held up Arizona’s writer in anti-immigration Philadelphia. law — along with its racial-profiling practices — as a model for the nation. Your party just this year passed voter ID laws that were a clear attempt to suppress minority votes. And your party tried to win the 2012 election by digging up an old videotape of Obama just weeks before this election, suggesting (falsely) that it was proof of his reverse racism. Republicans have sent a clear, unmistakable message. It has been just

JOEL MATHIS

as unmistakably received. The result? Romney earned the support of a whole lot of white male voters — and not a whole lot of anyone else. Women? African-Americans? Latinos? They ended up mostly voting for Obama. And Obama won re-election, you may have noticed. It doesn’t have to be this way. There’s nothing inherently “white” about a desire for limited government, or lower taxes or even “family values.” If the GOP were seen as a welcoming place for a wider cross section of America, it would earn the support of a wider cross section of America. White guys can’t deliver an election on their own anymore. Really, all you have to do is rethink your “severely conservative” rhetoric on immigration policy, and you might find a quick change in your electoral fortunes. Pass the DREAM Act. Start printing up visas for guest workers. These are measures that had GOP support in the past. Support them again — and change nothing else — and you might win again.

BEN BOYCHUK Now comes the call for Republicans to abandon most of their principles in the quest for lost votes. Never mind that Romney only said he was “severely conservative” because Romney would say just about anything to any audience. That’s part of the trouble. Republican candidates up and down the line have been content to mouth every Reaganesque cliché for 24 years now. The deeds have rarely matched the rhetoric. So people no longer believe the rhetoric. Instead of “positioning” themselves with voters, Republicans would do well to turn off the TV and radio, study some history, and take a good, long look at the world around them without ideological blinders. Margaret Thatcher, writing for the

Telegraph of London shortly after her Conservative Party took its second consecutive drubbing in the 1975 parliamentary elections, urged her fellow Tories to reassess their situation with sobriety and without rancor. “Size is not all, any more than economic growth is all. Even efficiency is not enough,” Thatcher wrote. “People come first — their needs, their hopes, their choice, their values and ideals.” In exit polls on Election Day, one in five voters said the most important factor in making a choice was that the candidate “cares about people like me.” Those voters chose Obama by a margin of four to one. Is it any wonder why? Thatcher also wrote that she believed the majority of British people who voted for socialism in the 1970s still believed in freedom. But, she added, “if they are no more than cash-grabbing anarchists, then we must all bear some of the responsibility and try to show them the way back to Ben Boychuk, sanity. But I do bboychuk@citynot believe they journal.org, is are.” associate editor of Sixty million City Journal. Americans didn’t vote for Obama because they’re “cash-grabbing anarchists.” But the danger is that far too many Americans are becoming comfortable with an ever-expansive government. Persuading them they’re in error is a mighty challenge. Of course, the reality is that whatever Republicans need to do to convince Americans to trust them again, it won’t take four years. Sorry, this is a generational fight.

Warming up Iceland’s chilly image The story gets complicated, but apparently Iceland is considering changing its name to something more commensurate with the island’s natural beauties and amenities, among which, apparently, ice plays only a small part. For years, Iceland has been known to Americans — the young ones, at least — as a stop on a grueling but very cheap flight to Europe aboard the aged prop planes of Icelandic Air. Then it was a participant in the banking and real-estate bubble that made people Dale McFeatters is a many quite wealthy on columnist for Scripps-Howard paper until the News Service. bubble popped, the banks failed and the government fell. Then, in 2010 and 2011, two volcanic eruptions disrupted air travel to Europe, reminding unsophisticated travelers thinking of a trip to Iceland

that if a fast-moving glacier didn’t get you, maybe a volcano would. Indeed, one of the suggested names that we suspect won’t make the cut is “Volcanicland.” In any case, perhaps a new name is in order; countries do it more often than you might think. Sometimes it’s to mark an end to colonial rule. Rhodesia became Zimbabwe; the Gold Coast became Ghana (although now that “Gold Coast” is up for grabs, Iceland might want to consider throwing it into the mix); British Honduras is Belize, and there is a whole bunch of Pacific Islands with new names that few can keep straight. (Vanuatu? Tuvalu?) Sometimes one suspects that a country changes its name in hopes of changing its luck. The Belgian Congo became the Democratic Republic of Congo and then became Zaire and, finally, just Congo. It suffered terribly under each name. Anyway, the island’s tourist authorities are holding a contest to choose a new name, selection by the Promote Iceland committee to be done sometime after March 21. Frankly, the early suggestions make keeping the current name look more and more attractive — Niceland, Rockland, Catch-A-Cloud Land,

Spiritland, Birdsland, Volcanicland and one that will never get by the real estate people, Eyjafjlakojland, after the giant volcano that recently blew up. Icelanders seem to be honest in their choice of names. No one has recommended calling it East Palm Beach or Hawaii’s Other Big Island. Iceland, like Greenland, may have gotten its name originally as part of a real estate scam. One version is that a Viking explorer named Floki Vilgeroarson visited the island in the ninth century and found it so pleasant that he named it Iceland in hopes that the forbidding name would keep out interlopers. Eric the Red, another Viking, was said to have been exiled to a huge frozen island that he promptly named Greenland in hopes that others would come and join him. Even now, few have. The population is only around 57,000. The Icelandic government has made no commitment to change the country’s name. It may not want to. If global warming is moving as fast as they say it is, the opportunity to actually see ice may become a tourist attraction.

HEALTH & WELLNESS It’s National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month CHERI WOLL

Cheri Woll is an oncology nurse navigator at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Move over pink — make way for purple. November is National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network released a report in August that predicts pancreatic cancer will move from the fourth to the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States by 2020. Both the incidence rate and the death rate of pancreatic cancer are increasing, in part due to the increasing numbers of

older adults and minorities in the nation. It is also unfortunate that pancreatic cancer has a five-year relative survival rate of just six percent. Why has pancreatic cancer been such a challenge? First of all, there are no early detection tools for pancreatic cancer. The pancreas is located deep within the body and is not routinely screened or imaged. There are currently no biomarkers, such as blood work, to help detect pancreatic cancer. Symptoms of pancreatic cancer are nonspecific, so in most cases the disease is found in a late stage. Also treatment is a challenge, again because of the location of the pancreas, and because pancreatic tumors are complex and often resistant to current treatment modalities. Historically, funding for pancreatic cancer research lags

significantly behind the other top five cancer killers. In fact, according to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, the National Cancer Institute devotes only two percent of its total budget to pancreatic cancer — only one-third to one-sixth the amount dedicated to the other top cancer killers. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network set a goal in 2011 to double the pancreatic cancer survival rate by 2020. The United States House of Representatives passed the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act, formerly known as the Pancreatic Cancer Research and Education Act, on Sept. 19, which will require the NCI to create a long-term plan for pancreatic and other recalcitrant (“stubborn”) cancers. This includes evaluating its current efforts related to the disease and making recommendations on

Antioxidants may ease PAD blood pressure increase From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY — Low antioxidant levels contribute to increased blood pressure during exercise for people with peripheral arterial disease, according to researchers at Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute. Peripheral arterial disease, or PAD, affects an estimated 10 million Americans and increases the chance of death from a cardiovascular event. Reduced blood flow causes pain in the legs and increases blood pressure in people who have PAD. However, the causes of the disease are unknown. “Past studies have shown that having low antioxidant levels and increased reactive oxygen species — chemical products that bind to body cells and cause damage — is related to more severe PAD,” said Matthew Muller, postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Larry Sinoway’s lab at Penn State College of Medicine, and lead author of the study. Antioxidants prevent the reactive oxygen species from damaging cells. “This study shows that blood pressure increases more with exercise in more severe PAD cases. By infusing the antioxidant vitamin C into the blood, we were able to lessen the increase in blood pressure during

exercise.” Vitamin C does not lessen the increase in blood pressure of PAD patients to that of healthy people. As the intensity of exercise increases, the effects of vitamin C decrease but are still seen. The researchers report their findings in Journal of Physiology. Penn State Hershey researchers looked at three groups of PAD patients to study the blood pressure increase. A group of 13 PAD patients was compared to people without PAD to see the effects of doing low-intensity exercise on blood pressure. From that group, a second group of nine patients was used to measure the effects of vitamin C. A third group of five PAD patients and five without PAD had their leg muscles electrically stimulated to remove the brain’s role in raising blood pressure during muscle contraction in this disease. Increased blood pressure during exercise occurs in both legs, before pain begins, and relates to the severity of the disease. By using electrical stimulation, the scientists show that the blood pressure increase comes from the muscle itself, since the brain is not telling the leg to contract and the pressure still increases. “This indicates that during normal, everyday activities such as walk-

ing, an impaired antioxidant system — as well as other factors — plays a role in the increased blood pressure response to exercise,” Muller said. “Therefore, supplementing the diet with antioxidants may help these patients, but more studies are needed to confirm this concept." Other researchers are Rachel C. Drew, postdoctoral fellow; Cheryl A. Blaha, research coordinator; Jessica L. Mast, research coordinator; Jian Cui, associate professor of medicine; and Amy B. Reed, associate professor of surgery; all of Penn State College of Medicine. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health. Located on the campus of Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Penn State College of Medicine boasts a portfolio of more than $106 million in funded research. Projects range from the development of artificial organs and advanced diagnostics to groundbreaking cancer treatments and understanding the fundamental causes of disease. Enrolling its first students in 1967, the College of Medicine has more than 1,600 students and trainees in medicine, nursing, the health professions and biomedical research on its campus.

Family Medicine Seminar Series to feature da Vinci Surgical System From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — Robotic surgery, specifically the da Vinci Surgical System, will be the topic of the Family Medicine Seminar Series at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 15. The event will be held at Mount Nittany Medical Center’s Galen and Nancy Dreibelbis Auditorium located at 1800 E. Park Ave., State College. J. Frederick Doucette, MD, FACOG, ob/gyn, Mount Nittany Physician Group, and Howard Miller, MD, urology, Mount Nittany Physician Group, will speak about their experiences working with the da Vinci system at Mount Nittany Medical Center. With the acquisition of the da Vinci last year, Mount Nittany Med-

ical Center is the only hospital to have the system within an 80-mile radius. More patients in the region have access to minimally invasive surgery in urology and gynecology without traveling long distances. The innovative robotic techniques used in minimally invasive surgeries results in many potential patient benefits: ■ Significantly less pain ■ Shorter hospital stays ■ Faster recovery time ■ Less scarring “The da Vinci system enables 3-dimensional visualization inside the body and greater precision in a small confined space, while making it easier to operate using small incisions,” Miller said. Da Vinci allows the surgeons’ hand

movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the instruments inside the patient’s body. It even removes hand tremors. In collaboration with the Penn State College of Medicine Department of Family and Community Medicine, FMSS is open to the public and also serves the purpose of providing continuing education for healthcare providers. The Medical Center designates the activity for a maximum of five AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Healthcare providers may register for the buffet dinner at 6 p.m. and then attend the lecture at 6:30 p.m. For more information or to register, contact jbird@mountnittany.org or call (814) 234-6738.

Elementary students hold Halloween events By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

CENTRE HALL — Elementary schools in Centre Hall and Rebersburg held Halloween celebrations recently. On Oct. 31, students at the Centre Hall Elementary School donned costumes and gathered in the school gymnasium. They had planned to parade in the streets of Centre Hall, but cold, rainy weather forced a change of plans. The students, grouped by classes, paraded past other classes in the gym to show their costumes. Their teachers got into the act, dressing in costumes as well. Some of the costumes showed great originality, with one family dressing as lunch. Siblings Joey, Caden, and Sean dressed as a Hershey Bar, a juice box and a peanut butter and

jelly sandwich, respectively. Their mother made the costumes by hand. Following their costume parade, the students returned to their classrooms for parties featuring many sweet snacks. On Nov. 2, the students at the Miles Township Elementary School in Rebersburg hit the streets on their annual trick or treating parade. Led by costumed teachers, the kids went east along Main Street, crossed the road on the east end of town, and then walked westward on the other side, and returned to the school on Town Lane. Citizens along the way handed out treats to the students as they passed by. After the parade, the students gathered in the school gym, where each class walked around the room to show their costumes. They returned to their classrooms for individual class parties.

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State faculty, friends and corporate supporters have made commitments totaling $334,000 to establish an Early Career Professorship in Comparative Literature in honor of Caroline Eckhardt, the longtime head of the department and professor of comparative literature and English. Faculty colleagues, administrators and alumni also contributed an additional $30,000 to create a fund to support various programs and initiatives for the study of comparative literature, also in honor of Eckhardt. The Caroline D. Eckhardt Early Career Professorship in Comparative Literature will provide additional resources to outstanding young faculty during the early and critical years of their careers at the university. The funds will recognize their achievements and enable them to pursue further innovation in the classroom and in their research. With matching funds from the Penn State Faculty Endowment Challenge, the total endowment is worth $500,000. Both gifts were announced at the recent celebration of the department’s 25th anniversary. “Over the last quarter century, Carey Eckhardt has been at the center of comparative literature at Penn

State,” said Susan Welch, dean of the College of the Liberal Arts. “As the only head in the history of the department, she has worked tirelessly to create, lead and inspire the faculty and students. Along the way, she has nurtured important teaching and scholarship, and elevated the humanities at Penn State.” During Eckhardt’s tenure, the department has graduated about 430 bachelor of arts and 70 doctoral graduates and grown to include some 20 faculty. Its graduates have gone on to successful careers in education, government and business, many of them having benefited from the professor’s lessons in critical reading. Finally, the department has been recognized nationally as a leader in the field, ranked in the top 10 percent by the influential National Research Council. In addition, Eckhardt has incubated a number of less commonly taught languages in the Penn State curriculum, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Hindi — now all part of the Asian Studies Program — as well as Swahili, Arabic and Turkish. Offering these languages allows the College of the Liberal Arts to fulfill the basic obligation of a public university to prepare its students for a global world. The Penn State Faculty Endowment Challenge offers donors an opportunity to leverage a 1:2 match

from the university for gifts creating new Early Career Professorships in any of Penn State’s academic units. Such endowments typically require a minimum commitment of $500,000, but through the Faculty Endowment Challenge, donors may establish new Early Career Professorships for any of the university’s colleges or campuses with a commitment of $334,000. The university will commit the remaining one third of the necessary funds from unrestricted endowment resources. Faculty support is a top priority of For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students, the universitywide effort directed toward a shared vision of Penn State as the most comprehensive, student-centered research university in America. The university is engaging Penn State’s alumni and friends as partners in achieving six key objectives: ensuring student access and opportunity, enhancing honors education, enriching the student experience, building faculty strength and capacity, fostering discovery and creativity, and sustaining the university’s tradition of quality. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families. The For the Future campaign is the most ambitious effort of its kind in Penn State’s history, with the goal of securing $2 billion by 2014.

‘Jeans for Teens’ looking for shopping volunteers By SAMI HULINGS For The Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — In order to make the holiday season a little brighter for area children in need, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre County will hold its Jeans for Teens shopping event on Dec. 2. For the 15th year, Big Brothers Big Sisters will match shopping buddy volunteers with children aged 9 through 16 for a $100, hour and a half shopping spree. Each volunteer and child pair is assigned a store in the Nittany Mall, Walmart or Target, where the child will spend the gift card specifically on him or herself. Jodi Morelli, program coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre County, said the event is not only meant to be a shopping experience, but a bonding experience as well. Morelli is the wife of Centre County Gazette editor Chris Morelli. “We ask the shopping buddies to sort of guide them (the children) during the event, to help direct them to maybe more appropriate clothing and help them choose what size would work best for them,” she said. “We want it to be a shopping experience for them, as well as a mini mentoring experience.” Morelli said once the shopping is done, all purchases are

taken to a site to be wrapped for Christmas. “Those (the wrapped gifts) are delivered to the families closer to Christmas time so the kids are assured they have something to open under the Christmas tree,” she said. As many of the children involved in the Jeans for Teens program are also involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Morelli said she sees many children throughout the year who look forward to the shopping event. “It’s time to be spent on them. It’s undivided attention from a shopping buddy and it’s really all about them for that afternoon,” she explained. And though many Penn State students volunteer to give the children this undivided attention, Morelli said she can always use more volunteer shopping buddies from both the university and the community. “My biggest concern is that when it comes to the day of the event that we might not have enough volunteers to match up with the kids,” she said. “That would be a shame, so I want to make sure we have plenty of shopping buddy volunteers to go around.” Morelli hopes more people throughout the community volunteer for the program, as she

Fresh Life: Defining ‘Indian summer’ After summer, where the nights are warm and the days are sultry and before the cold and harsh winter days, there is fall. Fall is a lovely transitional period, especially in central Pennsylvania where leaves turn shades of red, gold and orange and the temperature is comfortable but cozily chilly. Deeper into fall, we can expect cold nights which create frost that puts those summer flowers, plants, Amy Debach-Conand gardens to fer has a degree in rest and crisp visual arts/photogdays that find us raphy and training digging through as a wilderness EMT and beekeeper. closets to unearth fall She can be reached sweaters and at amosd14@ yahoo.com sweatshirts. Continuing, our heaters come on, snowflakes may fly, and the acceptance of cold weather with barren trees and having to warm up the car before work, has finally set in. Then these rare and mild days, of which we experienced last Sunday, occur. The “Indian summer,” the teaser days that allow folks a chance to enjoy summer like weather one more time. Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather, occurring after the end of summer proper. The few and far between days in the midst of deep and chilly fall that warm up to summer-like temperatures. Some have to dig out their summer clothing for the day and people take advantage of getting their yards into shape, leaves raked, the car washed, and vitamin D treatments from the sun. Usually any extra warm day during the fall months is referred to as Indian summer but technically to be an Indian summer day, the day must meet certain criteria. According to an online resource, the following are criteria for an Indian summer:

friendship or a relationship out of the experience.” To volunteer as a Jeans for Teens shopping buddy, call (814) 237-5731 or email bbbsnews@ ccysb.com

AMY DEBACH-CONFER/For The Gazette

CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA got a dose of “Indian Summer” over the weekend as temperatures got into the 60s. 1. As well as being warm, the atmosphere during Indian summer is hazy or smoky, there is no wind, the barometer is standing high, and the nights are clear and chilly. 2. A moving, cool, shallow polar air mass is converting into a deep, warm, stagnant anticyclone (high pressure) system, which has the effect of causing the haze and large swing in temperature between day and night. 3. The time of occurrence is important: The warm days must follow a spell of cold weather or a good hard frost. 4. The conditions described above must occur between St. Martin’s Day (Nov. 11) and (Nov. 20). With that being said, I believe we in central Pennsylvania met most, if not all the criteria this past Sunday. There are different thoughts on why these days are named Indian summer. Some say it comes from the early Algonquian Native Americans, who believed that these teaser days were caused by a warm wind sent from the court of their southwestern god, Cautantowwit. Another idea about the origin of the term was thought to have come from early settlers in New England. After they would welcome the arrival of cold wintry weather in late October, where it was ok to leave their stockades unarmed, the weather

would suddenly turn warm again, and the Native Americans would once again have a go at the settlers. The settlers appropriately named this Indian summer. The earliest known use of the term “Indian summer” was by a FrenchAmerican writer named John Hector St. John de Crevecoeur of rural New York in 1778. He wrote: “Then a severe frost succeeds which prepares it to receive the voluminous coat of snow which is soon to follow; though it is often preceded by a short interval of smoke and mildness, called the Indian Summer.” Also, as stated above in the Indian summer criteria, around the same time The Old Farmer’s Almanac began using the saying, “If All Saints’ (Nov. 1) brings out winter, St. Martin’s (Nov. 20) brings out Indian summer.” This was another early writing of the warm occurrences. Whatever the reason in the midst of this cold season, that there comes a few warm and sunny days, I’m sure many don’t mind. As we North Easterners prepare with snow shovels, ice scrapers, and knit hats for the colder months to come, it’s nice to know that there may be a break in weather, a peak at spring, a look back at summer, or just a gorgeous day to enjoy the warm sun for a moment during fall.

Church gives to Operation Christmas Child By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SPRING MILLS — Operation Christmas Child is a global Christmas gift-giving project operated by a charity organization called Samaritan’s Purse. Each November it opens thousands of locations, typically churches or schools, to collect shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal items and other gifts. These boxes are then distributed as Christmas gifts, accompanied by Christian literature, to impoverished children throughout the world. Samaritan’s Purse’s president is Franklin Graham, son of famed Christian evangelist Billy Graham. The name of the organization is based on the New Testament parable of the Good Samaritan, which teaches people to "love thy neighbor as thyself." The international headquarters of Samaritan’s Purse are in Boone, N.C., with field offices located in some 20 countries across five continents. The Fellowship Bible Church, located in Georges Valley, is among the churches in Penns Valley participating in this project. This small congregation collects items for the gift boxes throughout the year. On Nov. 3, the members gathered at the church, and formed an “assembly line,” where they filled the boxes and prepared them for shipping. Project organizer Juanita Covalt said they had 395 boxes to fill this year, down a bit from the 420 units they filled last year. Most of the empty cardboard boxes are obtained from the charity, but some people use plastic shoe storage boxes.

Covalt said that the plastic boxes sometimes end up being used by their recipients as lunch boxes, and even for carrying water in remote villages. The gift boxes were prepared for each gender in three different age groups: age 24, 5-9 and 10-14. Typical contents of the boxes include toys, stuffed animals, toothpaste and brushes, pencils, tablets, markers, rulers, soap, sewing kits and many other items. A note with the giver’s name and address is often included in the gift boxes, and many givers have reported receiving letters of thanks from grateful children and parents in foreign lands. Occasionally, problems and delays arise with the boxes crossing international borders. “We have to have permission for them to go through,” said Covalt. “There are a lot of people in the other countries doing a lot of paperwork, legwork and phone calls to help.” The filled boxes from all around Penns Valley are collected at the Faith Alive Fellowship Church near Spring Mills. Those boxes then go to The Bellefonte Christian Academy, along with all the boxes collected in Centre County. They are all then shipped to Charlotte, N.C., where each box is opened and inspected for appropriateness and for security reasons and finally distributed around the world. Operation Christmas Child has distributed nearly 100 million gift boxes in more than 130 countries since 1993. They expect to ship eight million boxes this year alone.

Runaways need a place to call home By VANESSA BARONNER Special to The Gazette

It is difficult to know how many runaway youth there are in the United States but studies have generally estimated the number to be approximately 1.6 million in a given year. Roughly, one in every five youth will run away before their 18th birthday with their first episode happening at age 14 or younger. Many youth run away two or more times. Did you know that right here in your community is a shelter to help with this staggering statistic? While many people look at runaway/homelessness as an urban issue, it is everywhere and it is right here in our backyard. Runaway youth are often referred to as “homeless” or “throwaway” youth, but it is important to note that the term also encompasses youth who are living in unstable, inadequate housing, youth who are couch-hopping/surfing, youth who have mental health or other issues, or youth who have been asked to leave their homes without any alternatives. Family conflicts usually lead to youth running away repeatedly or having the parents throw them out of the house. Many youth who are thrown out of their homes plan to run away and are left to spend nights in unsafe environments. November is National Runaway Prevention Month, a campaign through The National Runaway Switchboard to raise awareness of the issues that runaway and homeless youth face and to educate communities on how WE can prevent youth from running away.

Getting involved is as easy as flipping a switch with the Green Light Project. Participate by putting green light bulbs all throughout the community to raise awareness that these youth deserve to be safe. Run away youth affect the whole community and as such we should join together to help youth develop the necessary skills and get the resources that can help make a difference in their lives. So I will ask you again, did you know there is a shelter right here in your own community that help runaway/homeless/ throwaway youth? The Burrowes Street Youth Haven, a temporary emergency teen shelter through the Youth Service Bureau, will be lit green throughout the month of November to help raise that awareness of our local homeless, runaway and throwaway youth. At the shelter we can provide youth with the resources and services to help them so please help us spread the word to keep them connected to their families and community. If you would like to know how to become involved or would like to know how you can get promotional items to light up your community please contact us at (814) 234-0803. If you or somebody else knows of youth in crisis please utilize the National Runaway Switchboard 1-800-Runaway or call the Burrowes Street Youth Haven at (814) 234-2100 where there are trained staff 24/7 to help youth. Vanessa Baronner is the director of the Burrowes Street Youth Haven, which is a part of the Centre County Youth Service Bureau.

THEORY

Controversial play in end zone sends Penn State to fourth loss By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

Much of the talk after Penn State’s game at Nebraska on Saturday night centered around Matt Lehman’s controversial fourth quarter fumble — or go-ahead touchdown, depending on your point of view. In the end, the officials ruled it a fumble and the No. 18 Cornhuskers took advantage of that and two other critical PSU turnovers — including another inside the 10 — and rode 267 yards rushing into an exciting 32-23 victory over the Nittany Lions in Lincoln. Led by Ameer Abdulah’s 116 yards on the ground and Taylor Martinez’s 104, the Huskers erased a 20-6 halftime deficit by outscoring the Nittany Lions 26-3 in the second half. It was the fourth time this season than Nebraska overcame teams with double-digit leads in the second half. It was also eerily reminiscent of the other three Penn State losses, all of which saw the Nittany Lions ahead or even at halftime only to have the opponent roar past PSU in the third quarter on the way to wins. Nebraska bested Penn State 14-3 in the third quarter, and Penn State now has been outscored by a total of 50 points in the third quarter in its four losses. “You can’t turn the ball over inside the (10),” Penn State coach Bill O’Brien said, “and these are good kids. You know, Zach (Zwinak) is twisting, trying to gain extra yards, and he gained eight yards on the play. And Matt Lehman was trying to make a play. “At the end of the day, you have to come away with scores there. When you play Nebraska, they are probably going to score

Allen Robinson is only going to get better Allen Robinson is on the verge of a record-setting season, which makes Stan Hixon’s comments about the sophomore wide receiver jump out even more. “He is nowhere near as good as he is going to be,” said Hixon, Penn State’s first-year wide receivers coach. Robinson, who leads the Nittany Lions in receptions, yards and touchdowns, can be considered the first breakout star at PSU under Hixon, who has more than 30 years of coaching experience, including previous stops in the NFL with Nate Mink covers the Washington RedPenn State football skins and Buffalo Bills. for StateCollege. He said part of the alcom. lure of joining Bill O’Brien’s staff was the opportunity to coach at the college level again. At this point, he said, he has no aspirations to return to the NFL, even after some self-reflecting following the NCAA levying heavy sanctions against the program in the summer. Robinson has publicly pledged allegiance to Penn State despite the NCAA allowing all Penn State players to transfer

without penalty until preseason practice. His return in 2013, as well as the next five leading receivers and freshmen such as Jesse James, Trevor Williams and Eugene Lewis, would give Penn State a ton of experienced pass-catching options for whoever becomes the new quarterback next season. One guy in particular has drawn rave reviews, and you’ve never seen him play. “Eugene Lewis is a player that came in here with us and we really had high expectations for, and the more we saw him, he really didn’t disappoint us,” Hixon said. “His athletic ability is kind of off the chart.” Lewis has traveled for road games and has been most valuable giving the defense the look of some of the more dynamic running quarterbacks it has faced this season, such as Ohio State’s Braxton Miller. “Geno Lewis, the defensive guys talk about him every day, about what a good job he does for them,” said Hixon, who added it was difficult to have to redshirt Lewis until it was clear Robinson could be a No. 1 wide receiver and Lewis needed more time to hone his receiving skills after playing quarterback for most of his high school career. Robinson’s future seems bright. The rest of the receiving corps doesn’t look so bleak, either.

KYLE CARTER RULED OUT VS. INDIANA Redshirt freshman tight end Kyle Carter

(hand) has been ruled out for Saturday’s game against Indiana, according to the team’s weekly injury report. Carter injured his right wrist in the third quarter of Saturday’s 32-23 loss at Nebraska. He was still nursing an ankle injury last week. In other injury news, reserve running back and special teams contributor Curtis Dukes (head) and safety Malcolm Willis (knee) are listed as day-to-day.

PAUL JONES HEADING TO ROBERT MORRIS Former Penn State quarterback/tight end Paul Jones will continue his football career next semester at Robert Morris, he announced Monday on Twitter. Jones, a redshirt sophomore this season, will have two years of eligibility remaining. His father believed all of his credits earned at Penn State would transfer over. “We’re excited for him,” his father, Paul, said Monday by phone. Jones was heavily recruited but never took a snap at quarterback for Penn State after redshirting his freshman year and missing another because of academic reasons. He ended spring practice as the No. 2 quarterback behind Matt McGloin, but freshman Steven Bench eventually passed him on the depth chart, prompting a

switch to tight end. Jones caught one pass and had one rushing attempt before leaving the team for personal reasons in late September. “He just wants to make a real smooth transition into the next phase,” Paul Jones Sr. said. “It’s a good day. It’s an exciting day.”

UP-DOWN DRILL WHO’S UP Deion Barnes — Posted a career-high six tackles, including a career-best three tackles for loss, and added one sack. Zach Zwinak — Set a career high in rushing yards for the second straight week. His 50-yard touchdown run was Penn State’s longest play from scrimmage this year. Sam Ficken — He has hit six straight field goals, and he connected a seasonlong 38-yarder on Saturday. Glenn Carson and Gerald Hodges — Matched each other with 14 tackles. Hodges tied a season high. Carson set a career high.

WHO’S DOWN Big Ten Officiating — Posted without comment. Malcolm Willis and Kyle Carter — Willis left the game in the second half with a lower left leg injury. Carter suffered a right wrist injury in the third quarter.

The good, the bad and the ugly For Nittany Nation, this was a tough one to swallow. Penn State held a 20-6 lead over Nebraska, but collapsed in the second half in a 32-23 loss at Lincoln on Saturday. Many fans will point to the Matt Lehman touchdown/fumble in the end zone as the turning point. However, good teams overcome bad calls — simple as that. Let’s take a closer look at the good, bad and ugly from Saturday’s game. ■ The Good: The first half. Once again, Penn State came out firing on all cylinders as it jumped out to a 20-6 lead. The Nittany Lions had the Cornhuskers on their heels for the first 30 minutes of the game. Quarterback Matt McGloin dissected the Nebraska defense as Penn State quieted the crowd early. ■ The Bad: The second half. Once again, the Lions watched a lead dissolve in the second half. Keep in mind, Penn State held leads in three of their four losses — Ohio, Virginia and Nebraska. Penn State was tied at halftime in the game against Ohio State. First-year head coach Bill O’Brien got outcoached in the second half of the losses. ■ The Ugly: McGloin had a bad day. He threw a critical interception in the second half which led to a Nebraska touchdown and took a terrible intentional grounding penalty in the end zone that resulted in a safety. His reaction? Blame the refs. “We’re not going to get that call here,” McGloin said of Matt Lehman’s fumble in the end zone. C’mon Matt, you’re better than that. Instead of pointing fingers, McGloin needs to point the thumb at himself. — Chris Morelli

Complete Domination State College makes it look easy in playoff win over Central Mountain By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — With just over two minutes to play in the second quarter of a tied game on Friday night, the last thing on the minds of the State College Little Lions was another mercy-rule blowout of Central Mountain. Yet nine minutes of playing time later, after an avalanche of State College touchdowns, the Little Lions were ahead by 35, and the clock started to run. To their credit, the Wildcats refused to give in, and with a combination of trick plays, onside kicks, and the legs of speedy Von Walker, they scored the final 18 points of the game. But it was all too late, and State College brought home a 42-25 victory in the District 6-9 semifinal at Memorial Field. Ryan Goeke ran for 62 yards and scored two touchdowns, Ebrahim Britton broke a 57-yard touchdown run, and Andrew Kelly caught two TD passes from Pat Irwin to lead the Little Lions to the win and into the final against DuBois this weekend. “Starting off on those first couple drives wasn’t great,” Irwin said, “but we definitely picked it up in the second half. What it came down to in the game was that we went to what we do best and moved the ball down the field.” Both teams started slowly in this game. Neither scored in the first quarter, and it was almost mid-way through the second when Goeke broke the ice with a 24-yard burst up the middle that gave SC a 7-0 lead. “They seemed to overcorrect for the jet (sweep) on the left,” Goeke said of the play, “and we just ran up the middle. The line did an excellent job of trapping

the guy, and I was just looking to not fumble to ball and get into the end zone.” After a short State College kickoff, the Wildcats came right back. Starting on the 49, they marched 51 yards on 8 plays with Blaze Buckwalter taking it in from the one for the score and a 7-7 tie. Buckwalter, who ran 14 times for 100 yards in the game, also had runs of 24, 11, and 5 in the drive. Kelly got the Little Lions going on their subsequent drive by throwing a 31-yard halfback pass to Dan Fry down the right sideline. Four plays later, with 1:50 remaining in the quarter, Kelly took it in from 14 yards out, and SC took a 14-7 lead. It was here that things began to unravel for the Wildcats. On the first play from scrimmage after the kickoff, Walker was looking to go deep down the right sideline, but Goeke stepped in front and made the first of his two interceptions. After a 20-yard pass to Dan Fry and two Kelly runs, Irwin found Darian Herncane open in the end zone for Little Lions’ third score and a 21-7 lead. There was only 16 seconds on the clock when Hernecane scored. “We had turnovers. We had mistakes,” State College coach Al Wolski said. “It was really kind of sloppy in the first quarter, and we were moving the ball and made a mistake and couldn’t put the score in. I think the big play was the end of the second quarter and got that drive that put up the 21st point.” State College continued the momentum into the third quarter. After receiving the second half kickoff, the Little Lions took only two plays to score when Britton took a pitchout and bolt-

Three minutes later, Goeke scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard run, and then he almost immediately intercepted his second pass of the game that again put the Little Lions in scoring position. Irwin took advantage, finding a wide-open Kelly open on the right sideline and threw a perfect strike for a 33yard touchdown and a 42-7 SC lead. In all, State College scored 35 points in less than nine minutes of playing time. “I guess we started to click,” Goeke said. “We came out at half-

time and we knew we had to perform to bring out the win and that’s what we did.” Even though it was down by 35 with a running clock, Central Mountain did not quit. On its next possession, the Wildcats marched 60 yards on six plays and scored when Buckwalter took it in from 17 yards out. Going for broke, Central Mountain then executed a perfect onside kick, recovering on the SC 45-yard line. Six plays later, Walker sprinted around left end 15 yards for another Wildcat touchdown, making the score 4219. Another onside kick was unsuccessful, but State College

fumbled trying to run the clock, and CM was in business again. And again, the Wildcats came through, marching 80 yards on nine plays with Walker throwing a 17-yard touchdown pass to Cole Renninger. That drive took too long, however, and when the Little Lions recovered the next onside kick, there was just over three minutes to play and they were able to run out the clock for the win. “They (Central Mountain) were an excellent team,” Goeke said. “We knew we had to come out and unfortunately we didn’t execute like we should have. But it’s a good thing we came back and did what we had to do.

End of the Road Bald Eagle Area loses to Ligonier Valley in first round of playoffs By SHAWN CURTIS Special to The Gazette

LIGONIER — Second-seeded Ligonier Valley wasn’t the only team with reason to celebrate after the Rams’ 41-6 win over Bald Eagle Area on Friday. Yes, the 35-point loss put a sour end to the 6-5 campaign from the Bald Eagles. The playoff appearance by the Bald Eagles ended with a disappointing result but also ended a long string of frustration according to coach John Jack Tobias. “The success of having a winning season is huge,” Tobias said. “We had kids talking about playing in Week 4 who wanted to come out for the team. They’re guys who should have been there from the start. Winning gets people excited.” Tobias also pointed out that getting there may have been half the fun for the upstart Bald Eagles. “A couple of our kids had great seasons,” Tobias said. “This is the first year we’ve had a winning season since I think like ’92 or ’93, they got into the playoffs. For them the hard work was why we got to where we went.” Seventh-seeded Bald Eagle Area, which fell to Ligonier Valley by a 48-6 count in a Week 10 game, served as the Rams’ first playoff victory since 1985 when the thenMounties toppled Tyrone. “It’s a huge weight off my back,” Ligonier Valley coach Roger Beitel said. “No matter who was writing the articles, some more than others, there was always the: ‘They did this and they did that but they

didn’t win a playoff game. Didn’t win a playoff game. Didn’t win a playoff game.’ There’s a lot of negative people in the world that continually harp on that. Now we have. Hopefully that’s put to bed and this will be the first of many.” Ligonier Valley running back Ryan Torrance also made history, picking up 189 yards on 34 rushes to claim the school’s all-time record for single-season rushing yards, previously held by Barry Roddy and established in 1974 according to Beitel. “It feels pretty good,” Torrance said. “Whenever Coach Beitel came to me at the end of last week and said I needed 187 yards for the school record, was kind of shocked at first. Then he said ‘We’re going to do what we need to do to get that for you.’ Without him, without my line this wasn’t possible.” Torrance and the Rams set the early tone with a swift 58-yard drive that ended when the senior running back toted the ball into the end zone from 15 yards away. Bald Eagle Area responded with a march which took the ball to the Rams’ 24 before two straight incompletions by Cole Long turned the ball over on downs. Ligonier Valley parlayed the momentum into another Torrance touchdown, this one from a yard away as Torrance willed his way through the Bald Eagles defense. The Rams struck again early in the second with a 9-yard run by Torrance finishing off an eight-play drive. A three-and-out by Bald Eagle Area led to an even quicker possession by the Rams; though this one

BEA saw its season end at the hands of Ligonier Valley last week. ended with Scott Fennell’s 57-yard pass to Alec Bloom. The tandem put Ligonier Valley in the end zone again with the scoring play covering 6 yards. A missed point-after kick left the score at 34-0 heading into intermission. The Bald Eagles broke through late in the third quarter as Cole completed an 8yard pass to Jonathon Romine, who flipped the ball back to Bryan Greene, who then raced 64 yards to the end zone. Tyler Schall’s point-after kick was blocked. The Rams punched in their last points with 7:54 remaining when Torrance scored on a 3-yard run. Maddy Grimm added her fifth point-after kick to set the final.

On the Rams’ following drive, Torrance broke the record on a 6-yard dash to the Rams 45. Ligonier Valley advances to host Forest Hills on Saturday. The Rangers topped third-seeded Central 21-7 this past Saturday. The extra day to prepare may also give Beitel time to thaw out following the icebucket bath given to him by his players. “I didn’t get one last year because I was coming off a heart attack,” Beitel said. “After we won the conference championship, they didn’t think it was a good idea to hit me with the ice. That’s the best ice bath, I’m sticky and I could care less. What a night.”

THE LITTLE LIONS will leave the friendly confines of Memorial Field for the District 6-9 Class AAAA title game in Altoona on Friday night.

Steelers win close game, but lose Big Ben PITTSBURGH — It’s purely coincidental that on a night when U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney — she of the “McKayla is Not Impressed” or “MehKayla” memes — started the ceremonial waving of The Terrible Towel that the Pittsburgh Steelers turned in the least impressive of their six victories this season. Then again, the Steelers have never been about style points. That is not to say that Pittsburgh (63) was wholly satisfied with its 16-13 overtime win over the struggling Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City (1-8) treated the prime time contest as its Super Shawn Curtis covBowl — and at times ers the Pittsburgh like an audition for Steelers for the Fox’s “So You Think Centre County You Can Dance?” — as Gazette.

While Pittsburgh eked out the win thanks to a Lawrence Timmons interception on the Chiefs’ sec-

ond snap of overtime and the ensuing 23yard field goal from Shaun Suisham, many moments contributed to any justifiable unease. It was how the Steelers combatted these moments, not the moments themselves, that mattered. “That’s no Ernie Banks, but we’ll take it,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “We won’t apologize for it either. Such is life in the NFL. The guys made the necessary plays to get out of the stadium with the win. Big time kudos to all of the people that made the necessary plays, particularly Lawrence Timmons, who made a big play there for us in overtime.” When Ben Roethlisberger exited the game with a right-shoulder injury, backup Byron Leftwich performed passably for the remainder of the game. Leftwich, who had taken zero of the Steelers’ 598 offensive snaps in 2012 to that point, wasn’t sharp but was able to command the offense to a fourth-quarter field goal drive, which broke a 10-all tie. “I haven’t had any first team reps since we left Latrobe,” Leftwich noted. “It’s good to get out there, and that’s what I told some of these guys. We need to get some work together. That will be good because I haven’t thrown to Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and those guys since Latrobe. It was good to get out there and get some

work in. I felt that people were moving faster than me when I first got out there. After about three or four plays I got into a rhythm.” The Chiefs offense looked awfully strong in the first quarter, racking up 110 yards and a touchdown. The remaining three-plus quarters saw two field goals and 186 yards produced by the Chiefs. On a night when the offense sputtered regardless of who was under center, containing the pesky Chiefs was paramount. “The defense and the offense have to have each other’s back,” Timmons said. “We definitely want to have the offense’s back. They’ve been playing well for us. This was just a great, all-over team game.” A fumble by Isaac Redman gave the Chiefs, already up 7-0 and leading for the

first time this season, a chance to expand on the lead. Despite starting at the Steelers’ 10, a Ryan Succop field goal was all the Chiefs produced off that turnover. By the time that Suisham’s field goal split the uprights in the south end zone, it appeared that Pittsburgh was already wanting to put this game out of mind; if only because the Steelers’ effort indicated that the team was looking beyond the Chiefs with the division-leading Ravens on the immediate horizon. “This is a tough team,” Timmons said of the Chiefs. “I wouldn’t say we were looking ahead. Baltimore is also a tough team. (Kansas City) played Baltimore tough — Baltimore only beat them by a few points. This is the NFL. You are playing against great talent every week.”

O’Brien focused on PSU’s future By NATE MINK StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Bill O’Brien is flattered his name is being mentioned for possible NFL head coaching openings, but he isn’t even thinking about whether or not he would entertain any such offer. “We’re 6-4,” O’Brien said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “I’m flattered that you’d even ask me that question. I’m worried about Indiana and I’m worried about our Tuesday practice.” O’Brien reportedly turned down an opportunity to interview for the Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching vacancy last offseason upon being hired by Penn State. The Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs are among those franchises that could see a coaching change this year. O’Brien is under contract until 2020. Submitted photo

O’Brien backed up his comments following a controversial fumble call in Saturday’s 32-23 loss at Nebraska by reiterating he does not believe the NCAA or anyone else has an agenda against Penn State. Some fuss was made earlier Tuesday on social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook about Penn State merchandise not being available for purchase on the NCAA’s official website. “No one is against Penn State,” O’Brien said.

Maggie to the Rescue Lucas’ 25 helps Penn State notch season-opening victory By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State women’s basketball team raised the 2011-12 Big Ten Championship banner in a ceremony just before the tipoff against seasonopening opponent Howard on Sunday afternoon. After falling behind the aggressive Bison by seven points early and struggling and sputtering on offense for most of the first half, the Lady Lions began to realize that this was a new season and all that magic from last year would not be easy to recapture. So Penn State turned to its defense, and the effects were immediate and dramatic. Turning up the pressure late in the first half, the Lady Lions forced eight turnovers in the last three minutes of the period, went on an unanswered 14-point run, and finished the half with an eight point advantage. PSU kept the pressure up in the second half, building leads as much as 19 points, and finally closed out Howard 72-61 for its first win of the season. Maggie Lucas led the Lady Lions with 25 points, followed by 14 each by Mia Nickson and Alex Bentley, but the PSU players were hardly happy with their performance. “We’re happy that we got the win,” Lucas said, “but we can play a lot more disciplined. We finished plays defensively, but put them on the foul line way too much. That’s not what we do, not in our game plan.” Howard’s physical, match-up zone defense gave Penn State problems the entire game, especially in the paint. Even though Penn State had a significant size advantage across the front line, none of the Lion inside players managed a field goal except for Nickson. Add to that some cold shooting and impatience by PSU, and it’s not surprising that the Bison led for most of the first half and were never too far out of contention. “Size doesn’t really matter that much to me,” Howard coach Niki Reid Geckeler said. “It’s just how big your heart is. Our kids are very physical. They are very confident. This

is a squad that was 24-9 last season, so we have a lot to continue to build on. So size wasn’t really an issue. We just wanted to stay on top and play our game.” In the latter stages of the first half, however, the quickness of Lucas, Bentley, and Dara Taylor out front began to exert itself. Down by six, and after a timeout call by PSU coach Coquese Washington, the Lions began to pressure full court. In the span of three minutes, the Lions forced eight turnovers and turned them into 14 points, 11 of which were scored by Lucas. Penn State went from being behind 31-25 to a 39-31 lead going into halftime. “We talked about defense,” Washington said about her timeout. “We wanted to get up the pressure and try to create some turnovers and get some easy baskets in transition. I think we finished the half with ten stops in a row, and that kind of gave us a spark going into the half.” In the second half, Penn State built on that momentum, steadily pulling away from Howard. At one point, the Lions held a 68-49 lead with just over four minutes to play. Even so, Penn State had no answer for Howard forward Saadia Doyle. The senior guard finished the game with 36 points, mostly on drives and short jump shots, but Penn State also helped, sending her to the line 23 times (17 makes). No other player for the Bison finished in double figures. “Certainly, number one, she’s aggressive,” Washington said about Doyle. “She’s a guard size, with a post game. So if you put a guard on her, she does a good job of going down and posting and she’s very physical in drawing fouls. “If you put a post on her, she’s very quick to face up and drive by you. So, she’s a very good player, and we put her on the foul line 23 times, and when you have someone aggressive like that and you put them on the foul line, they get comfortable and in a rhythm and think they can do anything they want.” Doyle and the Bison never quit in the game, even after being down by 19, but time ran out on them and Penn State

MAGGIE LUCAS’ 25 points led the No. 8 Penn State women’s basketball team past Howard in the season opener on Nov. 11. prevailed, 72-61. “I think it’s early season,” Washington said about her team’s performance. “If you look at a lot of things right now, they came out of the gate and still have to find their identity. We have a lot of players returning, but we are a different team. “So we have to find our rhythm. We have two new players who are going to play a lot of minutes for us, so it’s going to take some time to figure that out in game situations. I think a lot of it is just the beginning of the season.” Next up for Penn State is a trip to Texas to take on Texas A&M, a tough team that will severely test the No. 8 Lions.

Nittany Notes: Volleyball squad keeps on rolling By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The No. 2 Penn State women’s volleyball team stormed past both Illinois and Northwestern last weekend to improve its record to 25-2 overall and 15-1 in the Big Ten. On Thursday, the Lady Lions swept the Illini 25-17, 2517, and 25-14 at Rec Hall. Deja McClendon led Penn State with 11 kills and Ariel Scott chipped in with seven. Micha Hancock had 21 assists and, and Dominique Gonzalez led the defense with 11 digs. In all, the Lions had 35 kills, five aces, and 33 digs in the match. On Saturday night, the Lions kept rolling with a 3-0 shutout of Northwestern. Nia Grant and McClendon led Penn State with eight kills, while Ariel Scott had seven, and Megan Courtney and Katie Slay had six. Hancock handed out 31 assists, and Gonzalez had 13 digs. Penn State is next in action at Indiana on Friday and Purdue on Saturday. The Lions then return home to finish the season against Ohio State and Michigan State. After squeezing past Albany, 2-1, on Saturday, the No. 4 seeded Penn State field hockey team was eliminated on Sunday with a 5-2 loss to Syracuse. The Lions finished their season with an 18-4 record and a 5-1 mark in the Big Ten. Penn State fell behind early 2-0, but Whitney Reddig buoyed the Lions’ hopes when she scored a goal early in the second half to bring Penn State back to within a goal. But Syracuse scored three more in quick succession to

put the match away and advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament. Syracuse’s goalie was awesome,” said head coach Char Morett. “I though she the difference in the game, really. I think that Syracuse is a good team and their kids played very, very hard. It was an awesome second half. Where we had all of that momentum going, and then they were able to come back ... it was tough to get to 2-1, and then all of a sudden it was 3-1.We had some great chances at the beginning of the game, and you have to score on those. “For the seniors, I just want to thank them for all of their years and the effort that they gave. I thought that Hannah (Allison) played exceptionally well today. She was a great leader on the field, as was Ayla (Halus). Kelsey (Amy) had some great chances, too. But they have been a great group of seniors.” The top seeded and No. 5 Penn State women’s soccer team advanced in the NCAA tournament with a solid 4-0 thrashing of LIU at Brooklyn on Sunday at Jeffery Field. Christine Nairn, Raquel Rodriquez, Tani Costa, and Maya Hayes all scored for the Lions who outshot LIU 21-3 in the game. The win boosts Penn State’s record to 18-3-1 and sends the Lions into the second round against Boston College on Friday at Jeffery Field. You want to put yourself in situations to score goals and we did time and time again,” Penn State coach Erica Walsh said. “At the end of the day, games are won and lost on having to put the ball in the back of the net. It doesn’t really matter how many chances you have to score, you have to finish them and we did four times. I’m thrilled about that,

THE PENN STATE women’s field hockey team — Big Ten champions this season — saw its season end with a 5-2 loss to Syracuse in the NCAA tournament last weekend. but I still think it can be better.” “I think we did well,” Nairn added. “Four goals. We wanted to score early and often. We didn’t come out exactly how we wanted. Four goals from four different players just shows how many weapons we have. We can only improve and we’re looking forward to playing Boston College on Friday.” The Boston College match is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Maestro Jinbo celebrates 23 years at the podium By HARRY ZIMBLER For The Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — The 2012 Season of the Nittany Valley Symphony marks the 23rd season with Maestro Michael Jinbo at the helm. Jinbo’s career as a conductor began quite by accident. “I first conducted during my senior year in college,” Jinbo said. “Though I was immediately intrigued, it took several years before I felt confident enough to even the possibility that conducting could be my career.” His musical career began while he was playing violin in his middle school orchestra. However his talents came to the surface quickly, and by eighth grade Jinbo was the concertmaster of the Illinois All-State Orchestra. Jinbo earned a bachelor’s degree in music history from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree in conducting from Northwestern University. He also attended numerous conducting workshops and institutes. Before becoming a conductor, he worked as a freelance professional violinist in Chicago. Everything changed in 1990 when Jinbo was invited top guest conduct the Nittany Valley Symphony. Several months later, he was selected as the symphony’s music director. “I was invited to guest conduct the Nittany Valley Symphony in a family concert when then music director

Barbara Yahr needed a substitute in order to take a conducting audition with another orchestra. Barbara and I had been colleagues at the Pierre Monteux School for Conductors and OrMICHAEL JINBO chestra Musicians. As it turned out, Barbara left the Nittany Valley Symphony at the end of that season and I was named her successor.” Over the years, in addition to his duties with the Nittany Valley Symphony, Jinbo has conducted the North Carolina Symphony for four years. He guest conducted the Sinfonieorchester Basel (Switzerland), Orquesta Sinfonica Carlos Chavez (Mexico City), Quebec Festival of Youth Orchestras, Altoona Symphony, Bangor Symphony, Dayton Philharmonic, Erie Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus and the orchestra of the Longy School of Music in Boston. Reflecting on his career here in Happy Valley, Jinbo is grateful for the opportunity. “The greatest thing about the Nittany Valley Symphony is the people involved,” he explained. “The Symphony is so committed to being the best it can be. It’s very rewarding to

me to help the orchestra reach levels that they didn’t think were possible. The quality of the orchestra has risen each year. There are also so many wonderful people behind the scenes, including our executive director, board, symphony guild, and our supportive audience.” As a conductor, Jinbo seeks to find the composer’s voice. That’s his greatest challenge. “It’s always a balancing act to be as faithful as possible to the composer’s writing, but also to figure out what you think the composer intended but didn’t necessarily notate.” he said. “The greatest reward is achieving a performance at the highest level.” Great thought goes into the planning of a Nittany Valley Symphony concert. Next up is “Fascinating Rhythm,” on Dec. 4 in the Eisenhower Auditorium on campus. “Fascinating Rhythm” is a symphonic pops concert of toe-tapping American and Latin selections. “I started with the idea of rhythm and that naturally led to dance,” Jinbo noted. “The program includes an arrangement of George Gershwin’s ‘Fascinating Rhythm,’ as well as the composer’s ‘Cuban Overture,’ and overture to the Broadway musical ‘Girl Crazy.’” As for the future, Jinbo looks forward to celebrating 25 years with the Nittany Valley Symphony in 2015 and celebrating the NVS’s 50th Anniversary in 2017.

‘How to Survive a Plague’ showing From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — The State Theatre will present “How to Survive a Plague” from Nov. 17 to Nov. 22. “How to Survive a Plague” is a documentary following the story of two coalition groups — ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) — determined to turn AIDS from death sentence into a manageable condition. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. The activism and innovation of these men and women successfully reversed the tide of the AIDS epidemic and virtually

emptied AIDS wards across America. With never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making. Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast said, “… the first documentary that I have seen that does justice to this story of a civil rights movement rising from the ashes of our dead.” David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter said, “An EPIC celebration of heroism and tenacity.” How to Survive a Plague is being called the best documentary of the year. The State Theatre will show “How to Survive a Plague” at 4 and 7:30 p.m. on

Olivier Award-winning choreographer Dein Perry created the tap show, with a construction site set by designer/director Nigel Triffitt and a driving score by composer Andrew Wilkie.

Millheim hosts music festival By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

MILLHEIM — The Elk Creek Café & Aleworks in Millheim hosted the fifth annual Harry Smith Folk Music Festival on Nov. 3. Several musical acts performed songs from the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music. The event proceeds went to benefit the Penns Valley Hope Fund, a local charity that assists families facing medical crises and/or personal disasters. HOPE Fund directors, T.J. Coursen and Dan Gensimore spoke at the beginning of the festival, thanking everyone in Penns Valley, as well as organizer Kai Shafft, and Elk Creek Café owner Tim Bowser for their support. They noted that the HOPE Fund has dispensed almost $200,000 in Penns Valley since its inception in 2008. Harry Smith (1923-1991) was an archivist, musicologist, film maker, artist, mystic, and collector of 78 rpm records. Harry worked with Smithsonian Records in 1952 to produce the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music, a multi-volume work that is little known in recent times, but has revived many blues, string band, and Cajun recordings made between 1927 and 1933. The Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music features over 100 recordings. The release of the Anthology represented the first time American folk and traditional music like this had appeared in an anthology release. These recordings have been highly influential in American music, and some would argue, single-handedly jump-started the folk revival of the 1950s and 1960s. They have shaped the music of performers and artists like Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello, and many others. The songs were a dichotomy of the desperation of the Great Depression, combined with a great hope for a better future. Festival organizer Kai Shafft addressed the crowd. “This festival was to be a one-off event five years ago,” he said. He noted that the event’s popularity has caused it to continue, growing larger each year. He called it a tribute to “the mystical, cultural, Rosetta Stone that the Harry Smith Anthology was.” Singer Miss Melanie opened the festival with two gospel type songs: “Better get ready for judgment, for God is comin’ down,” and then “I’m on the battlefield for my Lord.” The musical groups appearing sometimes swapped personnel, letting other musicians sit in on their performances. The Wios took the stage with Kai Shafft, of the group Chicken Tractor Deluxe helping out on a steel banjo. The Elk Creek Café was filled to capacity for this event with a crowd of enthusiastic bluegrass and folk music aficionados. The Harry Smith Folk Music Festival has become a major event in the folk music scene, attracting people from all around Pennsylvania and many other states to Millheim.

ALICIA GRAYBILL of Gardner’s Candies sets up a display of products at the Central PA Regional Business and Industry Expo on Nov. 8.

SEVERAL BUSINESSES touted their environmental prowess at the Central PA Regional Business and Industry Expo.

Area businesses on display at expo By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Hundreds of area businesses turned out for the Central PA Regional Business and Industry Expo, which was held at the Bryce Jordan Center on Nov. 8. The event was open to the public and it gave business owners a chance to mingle with other owners, exchange ideas and peddle their wares. The expo featured established businesses and some that are relatively new to the Centre Region. Callie Burke, a personal trainer from One on One Fitness, said that the expo was a good chance to get her employer’s name out there. “It’s all about networking and getting out there in the community,” Burke said. “A lot of people have heard about One on One before, but they can be apprehensive about coming to a gym or what they think is a gym. But that’s really not what we do. It’s nice to be here because we can show people what we do and put them at ease if they want to come in.” Nearly every booth at the expo featured something that visitors could take with them. There was everything from pens and highlighters to chocolates and coffee mugs. An entire row of food and beverage service providers of-

fered samples of their delicacies. Some restaurants, like Panera Bread, used the expo as an opportunity to showcase new foods — a red velvet cookie and a pumpkin pie bagel. Forever Broadcasting had a booth at the expo and did the “Steve Jones Show,” a local sports talk show, live from the event. The show airs from 1 to 3 p.m. daily on ESPN Radio 1450 in State College. Program director Bob Taylor said that doing a live remote from the expo made perfect sense. “A lot of the businesses here are people we deal with already. It’s good to match names with faces,” Taylor explained. “It’s great doing the show from here. That way, people will know that Steve is with our group now. He knows everyone here, too. The response has been very positive.” Penn State was also prevalent at the expo. Penn State Athletics had a booth, as did the Bryce Jordan Center. The BJC had its club seats on display. The club seats are special cushioned seats with cupholders that are sold as a package. When one purchases a club seat, they can be used for every event at the BJC, including men’s and women’s basketball games and concerts. The club seats include VIP parking, in-seat concession service and access to pre-event, post-event and a halftime VIP room with complimen-

tary snacks and drinks. “This summer we installed 48 and we have 10 still available,” explained Sarah Caterson, marketing director for the BJC. “With a club seat, you’re set for everything. You don’t have to wait for tickets. You get great seats to all of the shows. You’ll have VIP parking and VIP amenities, including in-seat concession service, which we’ve never done before.” The seats were installed during the summer and were an instant hit, according to Caterson. “We’re lucky. In this economy, our suites are full and have been. Our other club seating is full and has been. This was in response to trying to find another premium service,” Caterson said. The expo also gave non-traditional businesses an opportunity to get their name out there. One of those businesses was St. Joseph Institute. The institute, located in Port Matilda, treats those will alcohol and drug addiction. According to Holly Van Horn, the director of outreach at St. Joseph, the experience at the expo paid dividends. “I have about three solid leads. I’ve talked to some other marketing people who offer similar services. They said that if you get five solid leads out of today, that’s really good,” Van Horn said. “I’m pretty happy. Just to be able to network with local businesses has been great.”

Kish Bancorp Inc. announces third quarter financials From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — William P. Hayes, chairman, president and CEO of Kish Bancorp Inc. recently announced Kish’s unaudited financial results for the period ending Sept. 30. The corporation’s total assets ended the quarter at $566 million, an increase of $9 million, or 1.6 percent, compared to total assets of $557 million as of Sept. 30, 2011. Total deposits grew by $24 million to $467 million, an increase of 5.4 percent from $443 million a year ago. Loans outstanding declined 4.6 percent from $376 million as of Sept. 30, 2011 to $358 million in 2012. The reduction in loans throughout the past year is a reflection of the slow demand for new borrowing by businesses, and efforts by the Bank to curtail a few larger classified commercial relationships. “We are beginning to see a re-

bound in the demand for new credit by businesses in the region,” Hayes said. “We believe that the trend will continue with further economic recovery and improving business confidence.” Net income for the first nine months was $2.6 million, a decrease of $209 thousand, or 7.4 percent, from $2.8 million during the same period in 2011. With a decreased level of loans outstanding and strong deposit growth, net interest income has fallen modestly during the first nine months of the year, from $12.9 million last year to $12.7 million in 2012. Contributing positively to the change in net income was a reduction in the provision for potential loan losses. $350 thousand was set aside from earnings through the loan loss provision during the first nine months of 2012, as compared to $650 thousand in 2011. As the level of clas-

sified loans has declined, other loan quality metrics have continued to remain positive. At quarter end, the allowance rose to $7.115 million, or 1.98 percent of total loans outstanding. This is an increase of $218 thousand, or 3.2 percent, from Sept. 30, 2011. “The bank’s loan loss reserve continues to exceed peer averages for the industry and represents further evidence of a strengthened balance sheet that protects Kish from unforeseen negative developments in the economy or the bank’s loan portfolio,” Hayes said. “Actual charge-offs during the third quarter have remained modest, and the bank’s delinquent loan ratios remained at their historically low levels during the period as well.” Excluding non-recurring revenue, as well as investment securities gains, core noninterest income increased by $880 thou-

sand, or 23.6 percent, driven primarily by continued strength in residential mortgage lending activities and higher revenues in the Wealth Management Division. Overall, total non-interest income declined $909 thousand, to $5.0 million during the first nine months of 2012, from $5.9 million in 2011. 2011 results were elevated by the addition of $1.6 million of income from a foreclosed business property with ongoing operations that moved into other real estate last year. This property was sold in late 2011. Noninterest expense was $14.4 million during the first nine months of 2012, a decrease of $656 thousand, or 4.4 percent, from $15.0 million in 2011. The decrease in 2012 expenses was led by eliminating the cost of managing the previously mentioned business property, as well

as reductions in federal deposit insurance premiums. The corporation’s board of directors approved a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.81 per share payable Oct. 31, 2012, to shareholders of record as of Oct. 26, 2012. Dividends per share remain unchanged from the same period last year. Kish Bancorp Inc. is a diversified financial services corporation headquartered in Belleville. Kish Bank, a subsidiary of Kish Bancorp Inc., operates 13 banking offices and financial centers in Centre, Huntingdon and Mifflin counties. In addition to Kish Bank, other business lines include: Kish Insurance, Kish Financial Solutions and Kish Travel. For additional information, visit Kish Bancorp Inc. online at www.kishbank.com.
