Women’s coach talks to students about respect

Car aids cancer patients By MARJORIE S. MILLER


STATE COLLEGE — Sixty-six. That’s the number of rides cancer patients in Centre County took through the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program between 2011 and 2012. Through the program, volunteers provide patients with rides to and from their treatments and appointments both throughout the county and beyond. Now, the purchase of a new vehicle is going to make that a little easier. Last month the ACS acquired a 2012 Nissan Altima through funds made available as part of its Race Day Soiree in Centre County, said Jennifer Schweighauser, health initiatives representative of the East Central Division of the ACS. “With this new vehicle, volunteers will be able to utilize (both) our ACS vehicle and our ACS gas to drive patients to those … appointments,” she said. “This will help the ACS provide patients with the rides they need to get to their lifesaving treatments.”

PLEASANT GAP — It may have been cold and dreary outside, but on Nov. 2 inside the cafeteria at Pleasant Gap Elementary School, things were heating up. Every student in the school filed into the cafeteria to hear Penn State women’s basketball coach Coquese Washington speak. For about an hour, the coach entertained the children. She had them dancing, dribbling basketballs, taking part in a relay race and even read them a storybook. Throughout the fun, however, there was a message. “We try to get them fired up about being kind, being courteous, being respectful and being good citizens,” Washington said. “It’s important we do that with our young people.” Washington came to Pleasant Gap Elementary as part of the School Wide Positive Behavior and Intervention System — SWPBIS for short. The program is nationally recognized and is being used in all six schools in the Bellefonte Area School District. The theme for the program at Pleasant Gap is based on newspapers and pleasant news. During the first few weeks of school, the teachers shared school rules with the students and the students had an opportunity to practice appropriate behaviors. The school rules at Pleasant Gap are simple — Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Here and Be Ready. “It’s all about positive choices, making good choices and being good role models, those sorts of things,” said Pleasant Gap principal Tammie Burnaford. “Coach Washington’s staff contacted me about her coming to speak and it seemed like a really good fit.” Indeed it was. The coach engaged the students with tales from the hardwood and read the children’s book “Please,” by Alicia Aspinwall. “We need to be kind to each other,” Washington told the students. “And we’ve got to be respectful of one another.”

Pleasant Gap voters exercise civic duty By CHRIS MORELLI

PLEASANT GAP — At The Oaks, a small retirement community in Pleasant Gap, lines were long in the early morning hours on Election Day. Lines snaked down the hallway, into the lobby and out the doors of the building. The importance of the 2012 election was obvious. “We had 140 within the first hour and 20 minutes. Normally, we can go until noon before we have 85 voters,” said Joan Andrews, the judge of elections for Spring Township’s 87th precinct. “This is a big election.” Submitted photo

GETTING A LIFT: The “Road to Recovery” car is now being used at the Mount Nittany Medical Center. From 2011 to 2012, eight Centre County residents used the Road to Recovery services, Schweighauser said. Most of the patients in Centre County travel to Mount Nittany Medical Center, Geisinger in State College, or Hershey in State College, she said. “However, we do get ride requests from patients who need to travel to Hershey, Danville, and even sometimes Pittsburgh,” Schweighauser said. “If we have a volunteer to fill the request, we are more than happy and able to provide rides to those long-distance treatments.” Before the purchase of the new vehicle, Schweighauser said volunteers had to use their own cars. Oftentimes when treatments were farther away, it was hard to find people who were willing and able to do this, she said. “Volunteers in Centre County will no longer have to put high

According to Andrews, there were lines when the polls officially opened at 7 a.m. Her preparation for the big day began several months ago. Things really began taking shape, however, on Monday night — election eve. “I came in (Monday) night around 6 and we set everything up, the tables, the booths. I was in here before 6 this morning and put everything out and set up the ballot box. Everything has run smoothly. It usually does,” Andrews said. Brent Frank, of Pleasant Gap, arrived

Coach, from page 1 Washington brought several students on stage to participate in different activities. The names were drawn from slips of paper in a basket. The names came from student’s “headlines.� Students are given a “headline� when they are following the rules and exhibiting the appropriate behaviors in specific areas. “The children have really taken to the program,� Burnaford explained. Washington’s son is in the second grade at State College’s Easterly Parkway Elementary School. While she’s been spending a lot of time there volunteering, this was her first official assembly. “It’s so much fun. I really enjoy getting out and going to the schools and getting people excited about the things going on in our community,� Washington said. Despite the games, the fun and the noise, Washington is hopeful that the message resonates with the students. “I hope the message was received. We can never be too kind,� she said. “You’ve never heard anyone say, ‘so and so was too nice to me.’ If we can start it younger and getting kids at this age to value the importance of being kind, respectful and communicating positively, I think the next generation will be in good shape.�

Kane elected as attorney general By LAURA NICHOLS

In a decisive victory on Tuesday night, Kathleen Kane became the first woman and Democrat elected Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney General. Kane, a career prosecutor from Philadelphia, promised to investigate Gov. Tom Corbettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the grand jury investigation into Jerry Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child sexual abuse. She has said people in the Penn State community and in Centre County at large deserve the truth, and finding out why it took 33 months to release the grand jury indictment against Sandusky is a top priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next attorney general needs to do the job for the right reasons. I know I will do the job that they deserve to have done,â&#x20AC;? Kane said last week. Kane will take office in January, replacing Linda Kelly, who recently brought five charges each against former Penn State administrators Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz.

Investigation ongoing in cheerleaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall By LAURA NICHOLS

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; State College Police filed a search warrant in an effort to obtain Paige Raqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical records, including any blood alcohol testing results, from Mount Nittany Medical Center on the night she fell 39 feet from a five-story window. Raque, 19, a Penn State cheerleader, fell from a fifthfloor window in Calder Commons on Oct. 13. She suffered brain injuries and was initially flown to the trauma center at Altoona Regional Health Center. She was recently transferred out of the ICU and into a rehabilitation center, where she was starting treatment and showing signs of positive recovery. Police said the incident remained under investigation and on Oct. 31, filed an application for a search warrant to determine whether alcohol was a factor in the incident. According to court documents, the possible violations police cited to file the warrant include furnishing alcohol to minors and Minorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law.

Spanier, from page 1 said. Ainslie is part of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, the firm representing the former Penn State president. Still, Judge William Wenner revoked his right to travel out of the state unless the court sees fit to extend him the privilege to travel in an extenuating circumstance. Spanier was also ordered to turn his passport over to the court. His unsecured $125,000 bail means he does not have to post any cash or property but is obligated to appear at any scheduled court appearances. Ainsile spoke for about two minutes outside the courthouse, long enough to say that her client is innocent of all charges and to condemn Attorney General Linda Kelly’s claim that the three former top Penn State administrators were in a “conspiracy of silence” to protect Sandusky.

“It is absolutely ridiculous. Dr. Spanier was never given a chance to speak to this grand jury to give his side of the story and we look forward to the chance to present his side of the story in the future.” Counsel for the defendant offered no further comment and Spanier walked to his car with his wife, who was a Hemmingway Scholar at Penn State. Wenner said a preliminary hearing in Spanier’s case may not be until January, but he will make adjustments for a Dec. 16 court date if necessary. Curley and Schultz were given a potential preliminary hearing date of Nov. 12. 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.


PENN STATE students stood in line at the HUB on Nov. 6 to cast their ballots in the election. Voters, from page 1

As I was standing in the voting booth and filling in my vote, I was thinking: ‘This is a real privilege.’ I’ve taken it for granted in the past. There’s a heightened awareness with this election,” Scott said. He decided to get out and cast his ballot early. “I’d vote anyway, but this year it’s really all about the Presidential race,” Scott said. “I don’t think one man can fix all of our problems, but it was really the driving factor for me.” Because it was a presidential election, Andrews knew it would be a busy day. “We have peak periods,” she said. “They run from 7 to 9 (a.m.), then from noon to 1 (p.m.) and then, of course, after work. It starts around 4 o’clock and runs until about 7:30.” Voter turnout was strong in Centre County. Out of 112,920 registered voters, 69,212 voted — 61.29 percent, according to election officials. While President Barack Obama won reelection against Mitt Romney on the national stage, Centre County voters gave the edge to Romney. With 89 percent of the votes tabulated Wednesday, Romney had received 33,697 to Obama’s 33,677, according to unofficial results.

at The Oaks at 8:30 a.m. expecting long lines. However, he just missed the rush and didn’t have to wait long at all to get inside the voting booth. “I’m a little surprised there aren’t more people here,” Frank said. Frank came out to vote despite some of the negative campaign ads that permeated the airwaves over the past couple of months. “I think that this time around — more than ever — it was people talking about what they could do. They were cutting down their opponent. That was a little disappointing,” Frank said. After casting his ballot, Frank said that he’s excited to know that he can turn on a television or radio without having to hear a political ad. “I’ll be glad they’re off,” Frank said with a laugh. Allan Scott, 32, of Pleasant Gap, was voter No. 147 at The Oaks. Despite the early rush of voters, he said the lines weren’t bad at all. “I was very surprised,” Scott said. “I thought it would be jammed.” Scott was excited to cast his ballot. “As I get older, it’s getting more special.

Thompson defeats Dumas By LAURA NICHOLS

STATE COLLEGE — Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson won an additional term in the fifth congressional district on Tuesday night over Charles Dumas. Thompson, a Penn State graduate, has served Pennsylvania’s fifth district, which includes Centre County, in the United States House of Representatives since 2009. In a statement released after his win on Tuesday, Thompson thanked the people



who helped him through his campaign and talked about what is to come. “My wife Penny and I would like to thank everyone; the volunteers, our family and friends, and the voters of the 5th District of Pennsylvania for making this campaign a success. I am also thankful of Charles Dumas for his civility throughout the race. While we disagree on many things, the level of decorum has allowed for the issues to be presented and debated openly. I wish he and his family all the best,” said Thompson, upon learning of the win.

PSU president: School better than a year ago By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

UNIVERSITY PARK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn State has been strengthened by improvements to compliance and governance in the year since former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested, the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president said this week. The past year has been difficult, but the university remains a diverse institution focused on academics, research and service, President Rodney Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we a better university? Yes, I think we are in terms of everything that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished and put into place,â&#x20AC;? he said. Erickson spoke to The Associated Press as part of a series of interviews with media outlets Monday, a year to the day that Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest ignited one of the worst scandals in higher education. The NCAA, in levying strict sanctions over the Sandusky scandal, slammed Penn State for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;football-first cultureâ&#x20AC;? that was caused by a failure of institutional integrity. Those statements continue to draw the ire of some alumni and fans who were irritated that university leadership didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t


challenge the assertions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what a lot of people, myself included, and certainly the Faculty Senate and many members of the Penn State community have reacted to, is the painting of Penn State with a very, very broad brush in a sense that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one culture here that dominates everything.â&#x20AC;? Neither the marquee football program, nor any other aspect of Penn State life, dominates overall university culture, Erickson said. He cited recent NCAA data showing high graduation rates for football players and other Penn State teams. The rates, Erickson said, are an example of Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to academic and athletic success and â&#x20AC;&#x153;evidence of a culture of athletics that is one that we can and should take great pride in, and we will continue to believe in that principle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that academics and athletics can work together in a very, very positive way.â&#x20AC;? The soft-spoken Erickson, the former chief academic officer, took over as president after Graham Spanier departed under pressure four days after Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest. Longtime coach Joe Paterno was fired the same night, sparking a large student protest downtown. In July, the NCAA cited a school-sanctioned investigation led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh in saying there was an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unprecedented failure of institutional integrity leading to a culture in which a football program was held in higher esteem than the values of the institution, the values of the NCAA, the values of higher education, and most disturbingly the values of human decency.â&#x20AC;?

hit with a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine. Sandusky, 68, was sentenced last month to at least 30 years in prison after being convicted in June on dozens of criminal counts covering allegations on and off campus. He has maintained his innocence and is pursuing appeals. The criminal investigation continues. Spanier is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday after the state attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said the former president conspired with two other officials to conceal allegations against Sandusky. Many other challenges lie ahead. Erickson said he was optimistic about the ongoing inquiries by the Department of Education and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, an accrediting body. He had no update Monday on the progress of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential civil settlements with Sandusky accusers. He also expressed optimism that many of the challenges would be behind the school once the board of trustees finds his replacement. Erickson plans to step down when his current contract expires in June 2014. Trustees are expected to release more details on the search process at their next meeting later this month. Among governance improvements, Erickson cited the hiring of a full-time compliance officer for the Clery Act, a federal law that requires reporting of certain crimes on campus; a search for an athletics integrity officer; and changes to guidelines covering minors on campus, including more background checks and staff training.

Preparing for 2016 election The election barely over, but I think it’s time for us to consider our electoral process before the race for 2016 begins, which will be soon enough. First: It’s probably time to do away with the Electoral College. The best book I know of on this subject is “Why the Electoral College is Bad for America,” by George C. Edwards III, a professor of political science at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. John M. Crisp He argues that teaches English at the Electoral Del Mar College in College may not Corpus Christi, have been such a Texas. His column is distributed by bad idea at the Scripps Howard beginning, but News Service. Email the founders him at jcrisp@ would have had a hard time imagining how unsuited its original purposes are for the modern United States. Edwards’ arguments are cogent and convincing, and they’re couched in his justified reluctance to tinker with the Constitution. Still, he points out that when the Constitution has been amended in the

past, often the direction is toward more enfranchisement — of blacks, of women — rather than less, and the abolishment of the Electoral College would enfranchise millions of Democratic voters in Texas and Republican voters in California. Of course, the abolishment of the Electoral College has been proposed many times in the past without success. But maybe it’s time to do some bold thinking on this subject for the good of the republic. Second: In Mexico, you cannot buy a drink on Election Day — no cervezas, no margaritas, no alcohol of any kind. Believe me, I’ve tried. The presidential election is always held on Sunday, a day when many Mexicans are off work. Furthermore, beginning on the previous Wednesday, campaigning and political advertising are forbidden by law, and polling organizations aren’t allowed to release the results of their polls until after the election. I’m not necessarily holding Mexico up as a paragon of democracy and, of course, some of these measures would violate our allegiance to free speech. Still, why not, every four years, make our presidential Election Day a national holiday, set aside for the important business of voting? For many of us, voting has become an afterthought, an inconvenient civic duty that we neglect or just send in the mail. Why not honor it every four years with a national holi-

day in which we do little else? Let’s call it National Voting Day. Third: Shakespeare’s plays, 500 years old, are still legible in contemporary manuscripts, and I suspect that if the ballots that elected George Washington to the presidency are archived somewhere, they’re still legible, as well. But where’s the ballot that I cast last week by dialing through a series of computer screens and pressing buttons? Electronic balloting is faster and potentially more accurate, but its transparency and verifiability are questionable, leading some smaller countries, such as Sweden and Switzerland, to continue to use traceable, recountable, unhackable paper ballots. The fact is, the integrity of the electronic ballot is beyond the capacity of the ordinary person or local election entity to verify. And your faith in our electronic electoral system might be shaken by Victoria Collier’s “How to Rig an Election,” which appears in the November edition of Harper’s Magazine. Collier argues with considerable credibility that the development of computerized voting technology and the outsourcing of elections to corporations have produced highly suspicious vote totals over the last few decades. Nothing is more important to democracies than elections. Ours need attention. Let’s get started. The race for 2016 begins at any moment.

One of the entertaining aspects of dictatorships — unless, of course, you have to live under one — is their extreme level of paranoia. The ruling Chinese Communist Party has soared to new heights of freefloating paranoia in advance of the party’s weeklong annual congress, scheduled to begin Nov. 15 in Beijing. In fairness, party leaders have much to be paranoid Dale McFeatters is a about. The congress columnist for Scripps-Howard will choose the News Service. nation’s leadership for the next 10 years — no sense burdening the average Chinese with the necessity of making that decision. We’ll end the suspense right here: It will be Vice Premier Li Keqiang, a former provincial governor who, based on sketchy descriptions emanating

from the selection process, seems to be a go-along, get-along kind of guy. The ascension has been somewhat marred because a party upand-comer, Bo Xilai, was expelled from the party and the parliament and his wife given a suspended death sentence for the murder of a British businessman. In unrelated corruption charges, the minister of railways was also expelled. The preliminary congress festivities were somewhat dampened by a New York Times report that the family of Prime Minster Wen Jiabao has somehow managed to accumulate a fortune estimated at $2.7 billon during his years in office. Chinese authorities have labored mightily to keep that story from circulating in China, blocking any likely reference to it on the Internet. Party officials have ordered the removal of taxi doors’ interior handles and ordered cab drivers to keep their windows closed lest passengers try to pitch subversive material — like details of Wen’s relatives’ wealth — out the window in areas where delegates may be gathered. Authorities have been told to look out for subversive messages printed

on balloons and pingpong balls, and the Associated Press is reporting that stores have been ordered to pull knives and pencil sharpeners from their shelves for the congress’ duration. Toy stores and hobby shops have been ordered not to sell balloons or remote-control model airplanes. Flying model planes over the city is forbidden, and pigeon owners have been ordered to keep their birds cooped up for the congress’ duration. As usual, police are rounding up the usual suspects: activists, political dissidents and peasants who have come to the capital to press their objections over confiscated land. The Beijing marathon, scheduled to run at the same time as the congress, has been postponed. As a security precaution, the authorities have refused to tell the runners when it will be rescheduled. The Chinese Communist Party has successfully held 18 party congresses. You don’t build that kind of record by letting pigeons and toy airplanes fly around the city willy-nilly.


Looser liquor Paranoia tops Chinese leaders’ agendas statutes lead to more drinking By Scripps Howard News Service After decades of resistance, Utah, a state run by teetotalers, discovered alcohol and found it was good, or at least profitable. The turning point seems to have been the 2002 Winter Olympics. Many of the world’s top skiers come from countries like Germany, France, Italy and Austria, where consumption of alcohol is part of the culture, and they were balking at going to a puritanical venue that considered this a sin. The International Olympic Committee complained, and the state eased up on laws that made it difficult to buy a drink. The upshot is that, even with its relatively restrictive liquor laws, Utah has succeeded in attracting more tourists, conventions and decent restaurants. No one seems to have benefited more than the people of Utah themselves. According to figures cited by The Salt Lake Tribune, on a per-capita basis Utahns are drinking nearly a third more alcohol than they did six years ago — 2.5 gallons, up from just under two — an indication of what you would call pent-up demand. The most popular alcoholic beverage is wine; annual per-capita consumption is just over a gallon. From 2001 to 2009, according to the Tribune, the state’s population increased 22 percent, but liquor consumption on a gallon basis increased 54 percent. Some cite changing mores, demographics and economic development. For a state whose politicians blather on about the virtues of small business and the evils of government red tape, Utah makes it difficult and complicated for a restaurant to get a liquor license, and liquor sales are generally vital to a restaurant’s profitability. The Tribune reports that there were 45 applicants for a single license that became available in May and that 15 are already on the list for one that becomes available this month. The state Legislature voted in July to create 90 more permits, and they’re all expected to be spoken for by next spring. A bill before the legislature would allow a single “master” permit for chain restaurants to license all their locations. The relaxed laws have hardly made Utah the poster child for the evils of demon rum. Only West Virginia and Mississippi drink less wine; only West Virginia drinks less spirits; and Maine less beer. These are hardly destinations that bespeak unfettered alcoholic fun. Utah deserves great bars and restaurants. It’s hard to think of a better location for them. So to Utah, we say, “Cheers and long life.”

HEALTH & WELLNESS Red Cross needs blood donors From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — The American Red Cross, Greater Alleghenies Blood Services Region, is continuing its efforts to reschedule cancelled blood drives and increase donor turnout at area blood drives to help replenish blood supplies following superstorm Sandy. Through Nov. 1, superstorm Sandy forced the cancellation of approximately 360 Red Cross blood drives in 13 states and the District of Columbia, resulting in a shortfall of nearly 12,000 blood and platelet donations thus far. Within the 100-county Greater Alleghenies Region, a dozen blood drives in four of the six states it covers were canceled, resulting in a shortfall of approximately 400 blood donations. In addition, operation hours were curtailed at seven of the region’s blood drives on Oct. 29, representing an additional shortfall estimated at more than 300 donations, or more than 700 total. The region needs to collect approximately 900 blood and platelet donations daily to meet patient need. “The American Red Cross is encouraging blood and platelet donations in the wake of superstorm Sandy. While the public has been very supportive so far, additional donors are needed to make up for the shortfall caused by the storm. As Sandy continues to affect the number of people available to donate, hospital patients still need blood and platelets despite the conditions,” John Hagins, CEO, Greater Alleghenies Region Blood Services Region, stated. Nationwide, an average of 44,000 blood donations are needed each and every day to meet the needs of accident victims, cancer patients, and children with blood disorders. These patients and others rely on blood products during their treatment. This need does not diminish when disaster strikes. Please call (800) RED CROSS ((800) 733-2767) or visit to make an appointment to donate blood. Platelet donations must be scheduled in advance by calling (800)-542-5663, extension 2637, to donate at the Altoona, Beaver, Greensburg, Johnstown or State College platelet donation centers.

Family planning class offered at library From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — The Natural Family Planning Center of Central Pennsylvania will present a free Introduction to Natural Family Planning at 2 p.m. on Nov. 11 in the community room at Schlow Centre Region Library on 211 S. Allen St. in State College. The hour-long presentation introduces the Ovulation Method of Natural Family Planning, a method which allows couples to confidently identify when they are fertile and when they are not, and then to use this information to either avoid or achieve a pregnancy. In addition, NFP provides new hope for infertility, as it allows a woman to identify her time of peak fertility. While the session is free, preregistration is requested. Those interested in attending can preregister by emailing fertility.appreciation@ Topics to be covered include the simple and natural observations of a woman’s signs of fertility, how to chart those observations; and how to interpret a woman’s unique fertility chart to identify her times of fertility, infertility, and peak fertility. For couples wishing to use the method to avoid a pregnancy, the Ovulation

Method is 99 percent effective in avoiding a pregnancy when the method is taught by a qualified practitioner, Planning Center officials said. For couples having difficulty in conceiving a child, identifying and using a woman’s time of peak fertility can result in a 20-40 percent effectiveness rate for achieving a pregnancy, officials said. This statistic comes from solely relying on a woman’s knowledge of her own body. Completely safe and natural, women can use this method throughout their entire reproductive lives, whether they have regular or irregular cycles, are breastfeeding or premenopausal, or discontinuing the pill, Norplant, IUD, or DepoProvera, officials said. This is not the “rhythm” method. Temperature is not involved. Couples using this method have found that it strengthens their relationship to use a mutual couple-focused method of family planning, officials said. Margaret Okere, Ph.D., NFPP, the Natural Family Planning Practitioner leading the session, received her training from Creighton Model Allied Health Education Programs in affiliation with Creighton University School

of Medicine. This year-long training program included 150 hours of classroom education and over 500 hours of supervised clinical work with clients. In her training she learned to teach fertility charting to women with regular cycles, irregular cycles, or anovulatory cycles, and to women who were breastfeeding, premenopausal, or coming off the birth control pill. She also learned to teach fertility charting to advanced cases of women with infertility, subfertility, or miscarriage concerns. Prior to coming to State College, she maintained a Natural Family Planning practice in Ames, Iowa, for 10 years. She opens her new practice in State College this fall. While this method was developed within a Catholic context, religious content is not part of the teaching. This is a universal method based on sound scientific and medical research. Those couples, who become interested in learning the method, sign up for individual follow-up sessions where the teaching occurs. Costs are determined on a sliding fee scale. Free parking is available beside the library during the event.

Board of directors asks for fact-finding process From Gazette staff reports

ABOUT 70 PEOPLE attended the Centre Hall-Potter High School Alumni Association banquet.

Centre Hall-Potter High School alums hold banquet By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — The annual banquet of the Centre Hall-Potter High School Alumni Association was held on Oct. 20 at Progress Grange Hall in Centre Hall. This event has been held each year since 1927, except for two years during World War II, and one year recently when no one could take on the responsibility of organizing the event. The Centre Hall High School Alumni Association was formed in 1927. Its initial banquet was held in the Grange Arcadia in Centre Hall. The following year, the organization was renamed the Centre Hall-Potter High School Alumni Association, as the Potter Township School District had merged with the Centre Hall School District. The Centre Hall-Potter High School ceased to exist when the four high schools in the valley merged to form the Penns Valley Area High School in the fall of 1956. The banquet meal of turkey and all the trimmings was prepared and served by

members of Progress Grange. Following the meal, Penns Valley historian Vonnie Henninger gave a presentation on the history of Potter Township and the surrounding Penns Valley area. Her talk began with the early settlement of the area in the 1700s. Native Americans in the area were hostile to the settlers and massacred a family at their house along Rimmey Road, west of Centre Hall, on May 9, 1778. Soldiers were sent to the area to protect the settlers, and were stationed at three forts in Penns Valley. Many settlers left the area for nearly 13 years before returning. Henninger’s presentation continued with many 19th and 20th century photographs of Centre Hall, Spring Mills, Aaronsburg and other villages in the valley. Photos of churches and some 1920s vintage aerial photos evoked many memories and comments from the audience of about 70 members. The evening concluded with a short business meeting, and the singing of the Centre Hall-Potter High School Alma Mater.


STATE COLLEGE — The State College Area School District Board of School Directors has been negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement with State College Area Education Association for the past 22 months. With the assistance of a mediator appointed by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, both groups have worked diligently toward resolution. However, after more than 30 face-toface discussions, differences remain between the two parties. On Oct. 29, the board filed a request with the PLRB to appoint a fact-finder to help the parties agree to terms of a new contract. The fact finder will explore differences in the proposals put forth by representatives from SCAEA and the Board of School Directors. It is expected that a fact finder will be appointed later this month. Board President Ann McGlaughlin stated: “The board remains committed to our teachers and the collective bargaining process. We sincerely appreciate our teachers’ continued dedication to students as we work to achieve a fair and equitable contract.” Here is a brief summary of the fact finding process: ■ Both sides must submit a summary of issues in dispute to the fact-finder within five days. ■ The fact finder will conduct a hearing no later than mid-December and will take

oral and written testimony from both parties. ■ During this process, if the parties so choose, negotiations may continue. ■ If a new agreement is not reached in the interim, the fact-finder will issue recommendations and send a written report to both parties within 40 days of the fact finder’s appointment. These recommendations are not binding. ■ Each party must either accept (in whole) or reject (in whole) the fact finder’s recommendations within 10 days of the report being issued. ■ If either party rejects the recommendations, the report is made public. ■ Between five and 10 days after the publication of the report, the parties shall again inform the PLRB and each other whether or not they will accept the recommendations. ■ If either party rejects the recommendations, the negotiations process continues. ■ If both parties accept the recommendations, this becomes the basis for the new contract. The contract under which the parties are currently operating expired on June 30, 2011. Since that time, and until a new collective bargaining agreement is finalized, the parties must continue to abide by the terms and conditions of the expired contract. Under Pennsylvania law, this is called status quo. The district will post updates on the process to its website (

Centre Hall man recalls World War II service By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — Bruce Moyer was born and raised in Centre Hall. As a youth, his greatest ambition was to fly. He flew gas-powered model airplanes as a hobby. “Aviation was on my brain,” Moyer said. When he was drafted into the U.S. Army in February of 1943 at age 19, he applied for the Aviation Cadet program, but that group had reached its quota and Moyer was not accepted. Instead, the army assigned him to the Medical Corps, even though he had no medical background or training. He soon saw a posting for candidates to take exams for the Aviation Cadet program at Camp Picket in Virginia. He applied, and was accepted two weeks later. He passed the exam in April of 1943, and was sent to Keesler Field in Buloxi, Miss. to begin his training, then went on to the College Pre-aviation Cadet program at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Moyer got his first flight experience there, flying 10 hours in an Aeronca Champion. He went to San Antonio, Texas, for the Army Aviation Pre-Flight Course, then spent three months in each of the army’s three-tiered flight trainings consisting of primary, basic, and advanced levels. He flew a Fairchild PT-19 (twoseat, open cockpit design) in primary school, and a Vultee BT-13 Valiant trainer in the basic school. He remembers that the Vultee was a noisy airplane. “It made an awful racket,” Moyer said. After graduating and receiving his wings, Moyer became part of a fighter pilot group stationed at Matagorda Island, off the Gulf Coast of Texas, where he flew patrols over the Gulf of Mexico in a Curtiss P-40 fighter. He later was assigned to a P-51D Mustang, which was the most advanced, state of the art fighter plane of its time. “If you flew an hour or two flight in a P-40, you were played out,” said Moyer. “The Mustang was like a toy by comparison — the ease of control, and the responsiveness.” Moyer liked the horsepower, too. “There was about 1,200 horsepower out there. It was

The Pleasant Gap American Legion Post 867 Honors All Veterans

one sweet airplane,” he said. By this time (1945), the war was winding down, and new fighter pilots were not needed in the European Theater. Moyer and his fellow pilots were scheduled to go to the Pacific Theater, but dropping the atomic bombs on Japan brought an abrupt end to the war, so they never got to see combat. Moyer was disappointed he didn’t get in combat. “This was what you were there for,” he said. After the war, 1st Lt. Moyer wanted to stay in the service. “I was young, and I was flying, which is what I wanted to do,” he said. He got his wish by being assigned to a newly formed flight demonstration team, which traveled all around the United States putting on flying demonstrations, complete with close formation flying and aerobatics.

“We didn’t have a name, we were just a tactical flying group,” Moyer said. The group later evolved into the Thunderbirds Show Team after the U.S. Air Force became an independent service in 1947. Moyer was in that group for about one year, and then was discharged in September of 1946. After returning to civilian life back in Centre Hall, Moyer had several jobs working for electric power companies. He was one of the founders of Allegheny Construction Company near Old Fort, and later worked for the Department of Chemistry at Penn State University before retiring. He and his wife, Virginia reside in Centre Hall, where they raised three children. He is 88 years old now, but still fondly remembers the time when he served his country flying that “sweet airplane.”

Bellefonte Children’s Garden hosts jack-o’-lantern event By ANNE WALKER For The Gazette

BELLEFONTE — Halloween came naturally for children attending a jack-o’-lantern decorating event at the Bellefonte Children’s Garden recently. Part of a coordinated effort of the Bellefonte Garden Club, Penn State Master Gardeners of Centre County and the Centre County Library, the program, directed by Lisa Duchene, gave a dozen local children the opportunity to design their own jack-o’lantern using biodegradable garden materials. “We’re using plant matter that would otherwise end up in the compost,” Duchene explained. With a selection of items including seed heads from flowers like zinnia, gaillardia and echinacea, pine cones, feathers, Spanish moss and orna-

mental grasses, the young designers had plenty of materials to use for their creations. It didn’t take long for the children to pluck bits and pieces of dormant plants from the garden. They also got to choose from harvested items like chestnuts and broom cornstalks provided by volunteers. Volunteers also manned the glue gun to affix the adornments. With flowers for eyes, moss and grasses for hair, nuts and pine cones for noses, feathers for ears and bits of straw curved into smiles, these jack-o’-lanterns looked ready to go trick-or-treating. Four-year-old Kyle Fritzsche and his mother, Kelly Fritzsche, explained that Kyle’s pumpkin wore an echinacea seed head for a hat. “They’re ears,” Kyle said, pointing to the feathers sticking out the sides of his creation. Other young artists chose dried In-

dian blanket flowers for the eyes on their pumpkins. Five-year-old Macy Plowman, daughter of George and Rachel Plowman, gave her pumpkin a large leaf for a mouth, while her friend, Grace Anthony, daughter of Becky Anthony, made a mouth from a piece of straw and used Spanish moss for a curly hairdo. Both young ladies took great pride in their creations as they carried their masterpieces through the garden gate. The Children’s Garden on Howard Street in Bellefonte sits behind the Bellefonte Museum on Allegheny Street. From May through October, the Garden Club, the Master Gardeners and the Centre County Library offer garden-related programs for children at the site. “It’s a great way for kids to connect with nature in a community-centric way,” Duchene said.

Penns Valley churches hold bazaars By SAM STITZER

SPRING MILLS — Two churches in the Penns Valley area held their annual fall bazaars recently. Emmanuel Union Church in Tusseyville held its bazaar on Oct. 20. This congregation celebrated its 200th anniversary recently. The church bazaar dates back 20 to 25 years, according to church member Ruth Rishel. The bazaar featured homemade soup and baked goods for sale, as well as an indoor yard sale of all types of household goods. On display was a quilt made 25 years ago by several ladies of the church. Church member Tanya Evans owns the quilt. She said that several ladies each made squares for the quilt, and then sewed them together and finished the quilt. The quilt was auctioned off to raise money for the church. “I really wanted that quilt,” said Evans, whose winning bid was $400. Church member Bette Bender said that the bazaar used to be a two-day

event and included many craft items, but now is held just one day each year. On Oct. 27, the Sprucetown Methodist Church in Georges Valley held its fall bazaar. Organizer Ginger Mozingo said that this event goes back more than 20 years. It is held as a fundraiser for the church.

Impart life skills for better future By KATHLEEN ALLEN For The Gazette

Do you remember who taught you how to make breakfast? How about who taught you how to shower properly or what to wear to a job interview? What about larger skills like managing a budget, communicating respectfully, and getting your drivers license? Perhaps it was your parents, an older brother or sister, an aunt or uncle, or maybe your grandparents. Unfortunately, there are many youth in our community who do not have role models to teach them these valuable life skills. Fortunately, the staff of Stepping Stone Transitional Living Program can step into the lives of homeless youth and youth in foster care in our community. Our goal is to be a positive role model and provide the support our teenagers need so much to learn all of the life skills they will need in order to help them live independently. Many of our youth come into the program with specific goals, such as learning to fill out a job application, finding employment or obtaining a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. Many of the things that you and I may have seen as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? age marker such as getting a first job or obtaining a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit at the age of 16, these youth never had the chance to experience. Can you imagine what life would be like if you did not learn any of these skills or how difficult it would be to have to learn them all later in life? For these youth, it is a day to day struggle to take in and learn everything. Learning life skills is not only vital for the youth we serve, but for everyone in the community. Knowing these skills helps build competence, self-esteem and overall mental well-being. Life skills are not only knowing how to prepare a meal or properly writing a check, but it is also problem-solving, using effective communication, coping

strategies, self-awareness, decision making, and creative thinking. These skills are used on a daily basis and help us live an easier life. Our lives would be a constant struggle if we had to pick up the phone and call someone every time we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out how to get the wrinkles out of our pants, the stain out of our shirt, or that smell to go away coming from our laundry basket. But, think about what you do when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer to something. Who do you call when you are confused by a loan application or have a hard day at work and just need someone to listen? What would happen if you had no one to call? We can make the difference in our community. Everyone can teach a youth and be a positive role model. Every time you teach a youth a skill, you increase their confidence. And every time you stand by them if they make a mistake or fail and encourage them to try again, you are instilling work ethic and self-competence. Every youth in our

ROAD PSU drubs Purdue, remains perfect on road in Big Ten By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

Three more to go. Celebrate this one today, watch the tape on Sunday, and get back to work on Monday. That is the matter of course for this very workman-like Penn State Nittany Lion football team. The focus is always on the game at hand, and what happened in the past is gone and can’t be changed. This next game is all there is, and it is a season in itself. Yet even though the celebration was probably very short, there is an awful lot for the Penn State football team to feel good about in its 34-9 drubbing of Purdue on Saturday in West Lafayette. The Nittany Lions racked up over 500 yards of offense with both the running game and passing game firing on all cylinders. Matt McGloin passed for 321 yards, which was the fifth time in his career that he has thrown for over 300 yards in a game. The Nittany Lions ran for another 185 yards, with Zach Zwinak running 21 times for 134 yards and Michael Zordich crashing into the end zone twice for touchdowns. And Brandon Moseby-Felder caught six passes for 129 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown late in the third quarter that put the Nittany Lions ahead 34-3 and sent many of the remaining fans at Ross-Ade Stadium heading for warmer places. “We played with a sense of urgency,” Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien said. “We played with a lot of energy. We brought our own energy today. And I’ve said that

from day one that this is a team that loves to play football. They love to play for each other. They love to play for Penn State so it was a good day for Penn State.” McGloin had another impressive game. He started slowly, in part because of the wet and cold conditions and in part because of the various linebacker and cornerback blitzes the Purdue defense threw at him. But once the offensive line adjusted and McGloin had more time to throw, he shredded the Boilermaker secondary. He completed 22 passes to nine different receivers. Beside Moseby-Felder’s six catches, Allen Robinson hauled in five for 58 yards, and freshman tight end Jesse James caught three for 49 yards and a touchdown. McGloin completed five passes that went for more than 15 yards and three that were over 25. “Coming into Purdue we knew it was going to be a tough environment,” McGloin said, “and we knew there were not going to be too many people here and it was going to be a cold, rainy day. We were prepared for it and we handled it very well. “In terms of the offense, we were clicking today and were able to move the ball up and down the field after some adjustments and we hope that carries into next week at Nebraska.” “I thought that Matt came in here and managed the game well,” O’Brien said of his quarterback. “He’s been playing well all year. You have to give Matt McGloin a ton of credit for how he’s played this year.” Another ton of credit for the show against the Boilers should go to the offen-

Nittany Lions feed off Fitzgerald’s energy WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Craig Fitzgerald has been known to lick the floor of his sanctuary when he drops for an up-down after instructing an exercise out of order. He was outside in frigid January mornings wearing shorts and a short-sleeved T-shirt during 5 a.m. winter conditioning sessions, and Saturday, here at chilly, damp and empty Ross-Ade Stadium, he stripped off his shirt during the team stretch and hit the deck. Naturally, Mike Mauti, the senior linebacker and emotional leader of the team, felt compelled to run over and tackle Fitzgerald. “I got pretty excited after I saw that,” Mauti said. “It was just unexpected, so I just naturally got super excited. We were just jacked up.

“Back in winter workouts we realized what kind of guy we were dealing with when it’s 15 degrees and he’s got shorts and short sleeves on. He’s an animal. We all just really feed off that energy. We love him.” Fitzgerald has been one of the most important hires for coach Bill O’Brien. The two first worked together at Maryland, which may have never happened if George O’Leary did not lie on his resume upon being hired as Notre Dame head coach in 2001. O’Brien was reportedly set to join O’Leary in South Bend as his offensive coordinator, but O’Leary’s embellished credentials cost him the job days after being hired. O’Brien was back at Georgia Tech for two years before

The players adore their strength coach, and nothing he does can be considered a surprise anymore. “I just laughed,” linebacker Gerald Hodges said. “We all know how crazy he is.” Check out Fitzgerald in action, courtesy of’s Mark Brennan, who lucked out and unexpectedly caught the craziest part of Fitz’s pregame routine to date.

sprained left knee. An MRI will determine the extent of the injury and Hill’s availability moving forward, but he said after the game there was no apparent ligament damage. “I’m good,” Hill said. “I’ll be OK.” The injury occurred early in the second quarter after Hill’s knee got caught under the pile on a one-yard loss. He was carted into the locker room but returned to the sidelines in street clothes for the second half. Players knelt in prayer on the field and sideline when Hill went down, and many wandered over to him while being examined on the training table. From there, the other senior defensive leaders raised their voices

The good, the bad and the ugly ■ The Good: Penn State’s ability to bounce back from an emotionally draining loss to Ohio State. The Nittany Lions played solid football in almost all phases of the game, had no fumbles or interceptions, and generally took care of business against Purdue. The Penn State defense and offense perfectly complemented each other, with the defenders holding off Purdue until the offense got moving, and when that happened, the Boilermakers had little chance. Penn State played exceptional defense, especially on third down. The Nittany Lions held Purdue to only 7 of 21 third-down conversions, and many of those were due to the disciplined and speedy PSU linebackers and secondary. Many times, Purdue was held just short and forced to punt because of good tackling and hustling Penn State defenders. Sam Ficken kicked two field goals and four extra points. Ficken is gaining confidence at just the right time, and he could be an important asset in this season’s final games. ■ The Bad: The weather. Mid-30s, sleet prior to the game, drizzly and breezy during the game. There were lots of empty seats at RossAde Stadium on what was a miserable late-afternoon for football, which makes Penn State’s zero turnovers in the game very impressive. To be able to play in those conditions without mistakes was a big part of the PSU win. ■ The Ugly: The injury to Jordan Hill. Hill’s leg was caught underneath him as he was

pushed back under a pile, and, frankly, watching one replay of that was more than enough. The diagnosis for now is a sprained knee, and Hill will have an MRI this week. After the game, both Hill and Bill O’Brien were opti-

mistic that there was no major damage done. Senior James Terry and sophomore Kyle Baublitz filled in capably for Hill during the remainder of the game. — Pat Rothdeutsch

Warriors, from page 15 yards, which was good, and the backs ran hard. Our tight ends played well for us today, so everybody came in here today with a sense of urgency and played with a lot of energy.â&#x20AC;? Not to be forgotten in all of this, of course, was the play of the swarming Penn State defense. Purdue had a firstand-goal inside the 5-yard line on its first possession of the game, and the PSU defense held the Boilermakers to a field goal. They would not threaten again until the last play of the game when Caleb Terbush threw a meaningless 2-yard touchdown pass with no time left on the clock to make the final score 34-9. In between, Terbush and starter Robert Marve were

constantly rushed, harassed, and knocked down by the aggressive Penn State defensive line, and the Purdue running game was almost completely stonewalled, gaining only 87 yards on the night. Penn State had seven tackles for losses in the game and a 13-yard sack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defense really came to practice this week, especially Tuesday through Thursday,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ted (Roof) had a really good game plan and they coached it up, and (the defense) came here ready to play with a lot of energy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What it comes down to,â&#x20AC;? senior linebacker Gerald Hodges said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was that goal-line stand where we were able to hold them.

the 7-2 Huskers and all-purpose quarterback Taylor Martinez. In Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last-second 28-24 victory over Michigan State on Saturday, Martinez became Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alltime leader in total offense, passing 2001 Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch. Martinez, who rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns against the Spartans, won the game with his arm when he threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with just six second left in the game. If Martinez sounds similar to another dual-threat quarterback that Penn State faced earlier this season, a.k.a. Braxton Miller, that would be correct. But Penn State had a plan against Miller that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite work out (but could have), and the Lions will have another chance to implement something probably very similar against Martinez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a good football team,â&#x20AC;? McGloin said about Nebraska. â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we are going to celebrate this win and get back to work on Monday.â&#x20AC;? McGloin didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention watching the tape on Sunday, but you know thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he did.

to assure focus without the anchor of the defensive line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard the leaders over there, Hodges and Mauti grab the team and grab the defense together,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were barking and getting them ready to go. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a helluva player. What a helluva player. When a guy like that goes down, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heart and soul type of guy.â&#x20AC;?

OBENG-AGYAPONG RE-AGGRAVATES SHOULDER; HODGES TWEAKS ELBOW Two other defensive starters got nicked up in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at Purdue. Safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong had to sit out a few plays after re-aggravating a right shoulder injury heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dealt with since the victory against Navy on Sept. 15. The injury first occurred in the spring. Obeng-Agyapong said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been treating it with stem-cell therapy. Senior linebacker Gerald Hodges hyperextended his right elbow and had an ice pack strapped on it walking off the field. The injury is not considered serious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just on a tackle I slammed into my elbow and hyperextended it a little bit, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fine,â&#x20AC;? Hodges said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing ice canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do.â&#x20AC;? Curtis Dukes, the redshirt junior running back whose primary role in covering kicks, suffered what Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien believes to be a concussion on the opening kickoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten the final word on that, but I was out there. That was a dangerous hit,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was concerned about him on that. It looked like a head thing.â&#x20AC;?

ZWINAK EARNS START AFTER STRONG PRACTICE WEEK The running back carousel continued Saturday at Purdue, with Zach Zwinak earning the No. 1 spot after another strong practice week. Against one of the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst run defenses, Zwinak had his best game to date, averaging 6.4 yards on 21 carries for a career-high 134 on the ground. Mike Zordich, the No. 2 back on Saturday, added 33 yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns on 11 carries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just me,â&#x20AC;? Zwinak said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a group we push each other to be the best. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stacked position. We have a lot of great guys that can play.â&#x20AC;? As for running back Bill Belton, he was not involved in the offensive gameplan, receiving no touches and first entering the game on a 3rd-and-6 play on Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening drive of the second quarter. Belton was also replaced by Alex Kenney on the kickoff return team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belton wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like you gotta earn it on the practice field. I felt like Zwinny deserved a start. I was upfront with Billy about that. I like Billy. I think Billy is gonna be a starter again at some point because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna fight.â&#x20AC;?

NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012


BEA, Penns Valley made strides in 2012 The 2012 high school football regular season is in the books, and now is a good time to take a look back at what was a very eventful season. Two teams are still playing — both State College (7-3) and Bald Eagle Area (6-4) advanced into the District 6 playoffs, and both will be in action on Friday night against familiar opponents. The Little Lions were the No. 2 seed in AAAA, and they will be taking on No. 3 Central Mountain at 7 p.m. at Memorial Field. The winner gets No. 1 DuBois. No. 7 BEA will travel to No. 2 Ligonier Valley for the second week in a row in the AA opening round in what will be another difficult game for the Eagles. Ligonier Valley beat BEA 48-6 last Friday in the regular season final for both teams. Pat Rothdeutsch State College’s 17-14 loss on Friday covers high school to Cumberland Valley shouldn’t take sports for The Cenany of the luster off of another solid tre County Gazette. season for coach Al Wolski’s team. The He can be reached Little Lions’ three losses came at the at sports@centre hands of Central Dauphin, Harrisburg, and CV — all three quality teams and all headed to the playoffs. At one point in mid-season, SC played Harrisburg, Central Dauphin, Chambersburg, Central Dauphin East, and Carlisle on consecutive weekends, and the Little Lions came out of that stretch winning three of those games. Pat Irwin’s last-second, 21-yard touchdown pass to Dan Fry in the 30-28 win at Chambersburg was the play of the season for the Little Lions. Now it’s on to the playoffs, and State College is traditionally very tough to beat at this time of the year. The Mountain League’s “Big Three,” Central, Tyrone, and Clearfield, wreaked havoc on the other county teams throughout the season. BEA, Bellefonte, Penns Valley, and Philipsburg-Osceola were a combined 0-12 against those three teams, and none of those games were very close. If you look at BEA’s 6-4 record, the losses came to Central, Tyrone, Clearfield, and 9-1 Ligonier Valley. Otherwise, the Eagles took care of business and were rewarded with a No. 7 seed in the District 6 postseason. The Eagles also need to thank the play of their defense for that playoff bid — especially in week three’s game against Penns Valley. In that game, BEA stopped Penns Valley quarterback Cam Tobias on the 1-inch line on the last play of the Eagles’ 21-20 win. At the time, BEA was flying high at 3-0, and the Rams were sinking to 0-3, but if Tobias scores there, it would be Penns Valley with the 6-4 record and not BEA. And speaking of Penns Valley, what an inspired turnaround the Rams made in their season. Starting the season at a miserable 0-4, Penns Valley somehow turned itself around and won five of its last six games to finish an even 5-5. The Huntingdon game was probably what did it for PV. Both teams came into that game without a win, and Huntingdon took the opening kickoff and easily drove for a touchdown. At that point, Penns Valley could have easily said, “Here we go again,” but that’s not what happened. Tobias and the PV offense answered immediately with a score of their own, and then they answered again and again until they were ahead 42-7 and ready to celebrate their first win. From that point, the Rams lost only to Tyrone and ended up finishing tenth in the AA district standings and just missing the playoffs. Bellefonte and Philipsburg-Osceola both had trying seasons. Bellefonte started 2-1, but then its arduous season (and maybe Central Mountain’s Von Walker) took its toll and the Raiders ended up losing their last seven games. One stretch of games for Bellefonte included Central Mountain and then Tyrone and Clearfield away on consecutive weeks. All were big losses and they drained whatever confidence Bellefonte built after a good start. Both the Raiders and Mounties have promising young quarterbacks in Phil Fenstermacker and Curtis Matsko coming back who they can begin to rebuild around going into next season.

Tripped up State College falls to Cumberland Valley By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

STATE COLLEGE — State College had strong hopes for another Chambersburg-like comeback against Cumberland Valley on Friday night at Memorial Field. The Little Lions just scored on a 13-yard Pat Irwin to Dan Fry pass to pull within four points of the Eagles with 3:39 to play in the fourth quarter. There was plenty of time left, and SC still had two time outs to use. All the Little Lions had to do was stop Cumberland Valley and get the ball back. Unfortunately, that is where the plan fell apart; Cumberland Valley had no intentions of returning the ball to Irwin and the State College offense. The Eagles converted two big third-and-longs — including a 36yard double reverse scamper by Tyler Updegraff — that burned both of the Little Lion timeouts and left State College with little it could do as CV ran out the clock on its big 17-14 MidPenn Conference victory. “We wanted one more shot at them,” State College coach Al Wolski said. “Wish we could have held them there. Had a couple of chances on third down and weren’t able to do it. If we could have gotten the ball back, we could have been in pretty decent shape there.” Cumberland Valley diverted twice in this game from its grind-it-out, wing-T offense to surprise State College with long passes from quarterback Ben Fernbeck. The first came shortly after State College took a 7-3 lead in the second quarter when Irwin found Fry wide open over the middle for a 16-yard touchdown. State College held the Eagles on their subsequent drive, and the Little Lions got it back couldn’t move it. Fry dropped back to punt for SC from his own 25, but he hesitated slightly — as if he might run — after the snap and ultimately struggled to get off a 16-yard punt to the SC 41. On the next play, Fernbeck found 6-3, 237 pound fullback Jeremy Salmon open over the middle, and Salmon rumbled into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown and a 10-7 lead. State College, down by that 10-7 score, received the third quarter kick off drove 64 yards on 12 plays, mostly on runs by Ryan Goeke and Irwin, to

The drive stalled there, and kicker Ian Fennessey was sent in to attempt the game-tying field goal. The kick had more than enough distance, but it was just wide right, and CV held onto its lead. “I thought it looked good,” Wolski said about the field goal attempt. “If it was wide, it was wide right. It looked pretty good from here, from our angle. They (the officials) had a better shot at it, I guess, but I thought it looked good from where we were.” Cumberland Valley unleashed the second big play on its next possession. After moving the ball on the ground with Salmon and Uptegraff runs, the Eagles faced a third-andshort on the SC 49. Fernbeck faked an inside handoff to Salmon, and then launched a bomb down the right sideline that Garrett Long took in stride and sailed into the endzone for a touchdown and a 17-7 Cumberland Valley lead. “Two big scores (by Cumberland Valley), and then we miss a field goal which was well within our range,” Wolski said, “and the game would have been tied.” State College was not out of it, however, even with being down 10 and time running out. After receiving the kickoff, the Little Lions marched to the CV 31 on 11 plays, but Irwin was sacked on a fourth-and-five play, and the Eagles took over.

The SC defense held, and the Little Lions got it back with just over six minutes to play. Starting on his own 31, Irwin completed passes of 12 yards to Darian Hernecane, 7 to Andrew Kelly, and then 24 more to Kelly. Finally, after two more runs by Kelly, Irwin found Fry open in the left flat from the 13, and Fry sprinted down the sideline and into the end zone. The touchdown gave State College a chance to pull out another close win, but Cumberland Valley made sure that the Little Lion offense did not get back onto the field. Fernbeck completed only five passes in the game, but they went for 105 yards and the two big touchdowns. Updegraff ran 13 times for 115 yards, and Salmon added 87 on 14 carries. For State College, Irwin completed 10 of 19 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns and also threw in 85 rushing yards. Goeke ran 15 times for 79 yards, while Hernecane, Fry, and Kelly accounted for all of the SC receptions in the game. Both teams will now advance into the AAAA playoffs and will learn on Sunday who and where they will play next week. “We are getting ready for the playoffs now,” Wolski said. “You know, 7-3 is OK for this time in the season, and now we are getting ready to see how long we can keep this thing going.”

Tough night Eagles can’t stop Ligonier Valley rushing attack in 48-6 loss By DAN SCIFO For the Gazette

LIGONIER — The Bald Eagle Area football team just couldn’t stop Ligonier Valley’s rushing attack. Rams’ senior running back Ryan Torrance combined with junior quarterback Scott Fennell to lead the charge. Ligonier Valley, ranked third in District 6 Class AA, pulled away early by scoring on its first four possessions. One touchdown came after a surprise onside kick in the first half, for a 48-6 exhibition rout of Bald Eagle Area last Friday at Weller Field. “We weren’t able to slow them down offensively,” said Bald Eagle Area head coach Jack Tobias. “They were able to run the ball when they wanted to run the ball, which obviously set up their play-action pass.” That was the case on Friday as Ligonier Valley (9-1) punished Bald Eagle Area (6-4) on the ground, gaining 303 yards on 50 carries. Torrance did most of the damage, finishing with 161 yards and a touchdown on 28 touches while Dereck Croyle also had 85

yards on eight carries, including a 54-yard touchdown to close out the game. Fennell did his part, figuring in on five touchdowns as the LV junior quarterback was an efficient five of six passing for 74 yards and two touchdowns to Alec Bloom, the Rams’ leading receiver with three catches for 50 yards. Fennell, who had nine carries for 31 yards, also scored three rushing touchdowns, two from one-yard out, and a six-yard score that gave Ligonier Valley a 26-6 halftime lead. “Unless we’re able to stop people, it’s kind of tough to make things happen,” Tobias said. Ligonier Valley totaled 377 yards while Bald Eagle Area was only able to manage 145 yards of offense. Running back Dakota Bartley led the Eagles with 66 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries while Bryan Greene and Kaleb Weaver combined for 43 yards rushing on seven carries. Quarterback Cole Long completed three passes for 22 yards while Jason Jones had a pair of completions for 18 yards. Greene’s only pass attempt was

and give it everything they’ve got, and that’s all I can ask of them.” Bald Eagle Area advanced to the LV 30-yard-line on its opening possession thanks to a pair of Rams’ penalties, but the drive stalled and the Eagles’ turned the ball over on downs. Ligonier Valley responded running the ball nine times during a 10-play, 70-yard series. The Rams capped the series with a pass after Fennell found a wideopen Bloom in the back of the endzone for a 12-yard touchdown. A blocked extra point gave Ligonier Valley a 6-0 edge. Bald Eagle Area went three and out on its next series, and Ligonier Valley marched right back down the field, making it 14-0 after Fennel’s one-yard run and two-point conversion. The Eagles started the next series with a 35-yard run from Bartley and another first down before the Bald Eagle Area junior running back capped the series with a 13-yard run, trimming the deficit to 14-6. But just when it looked like the Eagles were about to climb back into the game, Ligonier Valley extended the lead. Bloom

an interception, which eventually resulted in a Ligonier Valley touchdown. Despite the lopsided loss, the Eagles are still headed to the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and ready to put Friday’s game in the past. “They’ve worked hard to get to this point, and like I told them, we have a 0-0 record going into this,” Tobias said. “It’s win and you’re in for the next week, and everybody is in the same boat. “There’s nothing to hold back, so we have to go out, have fun, and make sure we play fast.” The Eagles, after starting the season 4-0, suffered their fourth lopsided loss in six games. Tobias isn’t worried, though, considering the four teams BEA lost to – Central Martinsburg, Tyrone, Clearfield and Ligonier Valley – own a combined 31-6 record. “I’m not really disappointed,” Tobias said. “We’ve played four quality teams. It’s not like they’re terrible programs. “They’re teams that are going to be in the top of the district fighting for the top spot. We’re not playing cupcakes. Our guys play hard, show up every week,

pulled in a 30-yard pass and capped the series with his second touchdown of the game, this one from eight yards away as the Rams led, 20-6, after another blocked extra point. A surprise onside kick gave Ligonier Valley possession and Torrance followed with three straight runs, setting up Fennell’s second rushing touchdown, which put the Rams ahead, 26-6, at halftime. “When you come out in a 14-0 ballgame and get it back to 14-6, and then they score again, it’s tough to get that back,” Tobias said. “We’re a run team, so it’s hard to come back at that point.” But the Eagles will live to fight another day with a District 6 Class AA playoff game next week for the first time in five years. However, the Eagles will make the same trip to Ligonier as they face off with Rams for the second time in two weeks. “I’m happy with the guys and what they’ve done this year,” Tobias said. “We’ve got some big games ahead of us and they have an opportunity to win a playoff game, which we haven’t done in a while, either.”

Let the games begin State College, BEA ready for postseason action By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

A closer look at this weekend’s high school football playoff games:

AAAA, DISTRICT 6 FIRST ROUND No. 2 State College (7-3) vs. No. 3 Central Mountain (5-5) Nov. 9, 7 p.m. Memorial Field, State College STATE COLLEGE — The task for State College on Friday in the first round of the AAAA, District 6 playoffs is all about controlling Central Mountain’s all-everything Von Walker. Walker by any standard had a monster season. He rushed for 1,489 yards and 15 touchdowns and completed 54 of 98 passes for 1,066 yards and 6 touchdowns. If you’re counting, that’s over 2,500 yards of offense and 21 touchdowns from just one player. Throw in Drew Alexander’s 653 yards and four touchdowns and Blaze Buckwalter’s 410 with four TDs and Central Mountain presents many problems for any defense. The two teams did meet before this season, in week two, and State College posted a 36-7 win in a game that was not that close. Since then,

however, Central Mountain posted big wins against Bellefonte, Huntingdon, Athens, and Jersey Shore to go along with close losses to Central Columbia, Mifflin County, and Tyrone. The Wildcats come in with a twogame win streak, and would like nothing better than to advance at the expense of the Little Lions. State College lost its season finale against Cumberland Valley, 17-14, in what was an extremely well played and competitive high school football game. The Little Lions, with Pat Irwin in control at quarterback and lightningfast skill people like Dan Fry, Darian Hernecane, Ebrahim Britton, and Andrew Kelly, are a threat to score on any play. This game will likely come down to the SC defense keeping Walker under wraps, but anything can happen if Central Mountain springs a couple big plays and keeps it close into the fourth quarter.

AA, DISTRICT 6 FIRST ROUND No. 7 Bald Eagle Area (6-4) at No. 2 Ligonier Valley (9-1) Nov. 9, 7 p.m. LIGONIER — The good news for Bald Eagle Area going into Friday’s AA

first round game against Ligonier Valley is that the Eagles should be very familiar with the Rams. The bad news, of course, is that familiarity comes from a 48-6 loss to Ligonier Valley just last week in BEA’s final regular season game. In that contest, Ligonier Valley took a 6-0 lead after the first quarter and then exploded for three more touchdowns before halftime and two more in the third quarter to put the game away. LV quarterback Scott Fennell ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more, and led the Rams to 303 rushing yards and 377 total yards. Ryan Torrence ran 28 times for 168 yards and a touchdown, and Derrick Croyle added another 85 on eight attempts. BEA, on the other hand, managed 105 yards on the ground, with Dakota Bartley accounting for 66 of those on 10 carries, and 40 yards in the air. Bartley scored BEA’s only touchdown in the second quarter after a 13-yard run. Having to go back to Ligonier two weeks in a row is no picnic for the Eagles, but it is playoffs and expect BEA to show up determined to play a better game against LV.

Area teams close out season with losses From Gazette staff reports Bellefonte, Penns Valley and Philipsburg-Osceola put the wraps on the scholastic season last week. Here’s a closer look at the finales for each team: ■ Penns Valley 21, Mount Union 18: Penns Valley bounced back from an 0-4 start to finish with a .500 record. The Rams close out the year at 5-5, just short of the District 6 Class A playoffs. Penns Valley raced out to a 7-0 lead on a 21-yard pass from Cam Tobias to Luke Weaver. However, the Trojans responded with a pair of touchdowns to make it 12-7 at the end of the first half. Penns Valley scored on a 12-yard run by Vince Rowles to make it 14-12. The Trojans answered with a 16-yard TD run by Darrian Stapleton. That gave Mount Union the lead back, 18-14. But the Rams (5-5) would get the game’s final TD, a 1yard run by Weaver. ■ St. Marys 24, Bellefonte 0: The Red Raiders lost their seventh straight game, falling to St. Marys in Dutch Country. The Dutch took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter and tacked on a TD in third quarter. The Dutch sealed the win with a couple of touchdowns in the final stanza. Alex Feldbauer led the way for St. Marys, carrying the ball 25 times for 153 yards. ■ Forest Hills 43, P-O 0: The Mounties finished the 2012 campaign winless, falling to Forest Hills in the season finale. Ranger running back Shawn Dell rushed for a gamehigh 189 yards on nine carries. Dell scored on runs of 4 and 91 yards. He also caught a 29-yard TD pass from Joe Donoughe. Jared Krug also scored for the Rangers (7-3), blasting in from 13 and 65 yards out.

NOVEMBER 8-14, 2012

The Glass Eye: The NFL’s midseason report Every NFL team has now played at least half their schedule, and as usual there are more questions than answers around the league. At this point I’m fairly certain Houston and Atlanta are very strong Super Bowl contenders, and the “dregs” of the league are fairly obvious — but there’s a large “middle class” that really could go either way. The 2008 Cardinals, 2010 Packers and 2011 Giants were all in that amorphous middle class halfway through their seasons, so there’s a strong possibility that one of this year’s Super Bowl teams (if Dave Glass is a not both) currently sits columnist for The Centre County somewhere between Gazette. Email 6-3 and 4-4. Let’s disDave at buggypense with the teams that are out of it, then analyze the best bets to make a late-season charge — we’ll also look at the Steelers’ resurgence, and predict their second half. ■ Gunning for No. 1 Draft Pick: Jacksonville, Kansas City, Tennessee, Cleveland. DARK HORSE: Oakland. These teams are all done like dinner, and hope is all but lost in every one of those cities — but especially in Jacksonville, KC and Tennessee. Cleveland has new ownership, some young talent, and presumable new management on the way, and Oakland still can score some points. The other three teams are excruciating to watch and offer no hope of more than 4-5 wins. ■ Extreme Longshots for contention: Washington, Buffalo, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Arizona, Carolina, Philadelphia and N.Y. Jets. Many may think I’m writing off the


Bengals too soon, but their offense has become A.J. Green and little else, they have five losses already, and they finish with San Diego, Dallas, Philly, Pittsburgh and Baltimore. There’s no way I see three wins for them out of that group. Washington is too beat-up on defense, Carolina is better than their 2-6 record but dug too deep of a hole, the Rams are a year away, the Jets have too many injuries and no NFL-caliber QBs, the Eagles are in the midst of a coach-killing collapse, and Arizona has a great defense and no QB. Of this group I’d give Philly the “punchers chance” based on their talent, but they have simply laid too many eggs to take them seriously anymore. ■ Unlikely — but possible — playoff teams: Dallas, Minnesota and New Orleans. Dallas has had some bad luck and some bad games, but they played Atlanta and Baltimore extremely tough on the road and their schedule is much easier from here on in. Pittsburgh is the only team left on their schedule with a winning record. On the other hand, they have no margin for error in the superior NFC, so they probably need to go 7-1 to make it in. Minnesota is 5-4 but they are fading fast, and they have a very tough schedule ahead (5 games against the Packers, Bears, and Texans). New Orleans is in the same boat as Dallas, except that their schedule is much tougher. Their offense is better and they will be a major spoiler, but I cannot see them finishing 10-6. Dallas has the best chance here to get on a serious roll, and if Philly folds their tent (they play Dallas twice this month), Dallas’ path to 10 wins looks a lot easier. ■ Wildcard Contenders: Tampa Bay, Seattle, Miami and Indianapolis. These are teams that I think cannot win their division but still have a good shot at a playoff slot — Seattle has the easiest path here, as they have a winning record, a huge home-field advantage, a late bye to regroup, and an easy schedule. Tampa Bay has made a big

turnaround this season, especially on offense, but they have the NFL’s worst pass defense and a difficult schedule. I firmly believe that either Miami or Indy is going to take the final AFC playoff slot — which is a credit to Miami’s no-name defense and to the amazing rookie season of Andrew Luck. This is literally too close to call, both have equally tough schedules, and Luck’s improvement is counterbalanced by five Indy road games in the second half. ■ Division Battles: Baltimore/Pittsburgh, Denver/San Diego, Chicago/Green Bay. Baltimore, Denver and Chicago have to be considered the favorites since they each have the division lead — however, I think the Packers are just hitting their stride and the Bears won’t score two defensive TDs every week — I look for that division to come down to the wire. Denver already has won at San Diego, a season sweep should assure the Broncos a division crown. Both of those teams are flawed, but surprisingly I favor Denver here — Manning is playing at a high level, while Philip Rivers clearly has declined. I’ll talk more about the Steelers in a minute, but they play Baltimore twice in three weeks in November — if either team sweeps those games they will almost certainly win the division, but I predict a split. In fact, I think the Ravens will go 5-3 in the second half, the Steelers will go 6-2, and the division will come down to a tiebreaker — likely won by the Ravens via a better conference record. ■ Cruising: Atlanta, New England, Houston, N.Y. Giants and San Francisco. These teams can start making January plans — the Pats and 49ers have slim division leads, but I do not think anyone in either division is ready to challenge them. The Giants suddenly look wobbly, but they have a three-game lead in their division, and Houston and the Falcons are really on cruise control at this point. I like Atlanta,

San Francisco, Houston, and New England to earn byes for the playoffs. The team that has to be the most concerned is New York — yes, they are 6-3 but if not for a fortunate replay in Dallas and a 77-yard Cruz TD against Washington they’d be riding a three-game losing streak right now. Their schedule is not easy, and while I expect them to prevail I think Dallas might just give them a run. Now, about the Steelers. After their loss to the Titans dropped them to 2-3, I thought their season was cooked — they weren’t stopping anyone on defense, the running game was hit-and-miss, and the passing game wasn’t producing enough TDs. Suddenly the defense has completely shut down RG3, Eli Manning and A.J. Green, the running game has 140-plus yards each of the last three weeks, and the Steelers are right back in the thick of the division race. Maybe defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau wasn’t the problem after all? The most impressive improvement has been the offensive line — long the biggest weakness on the team, it has become a real strength, especially run blocking. For years Steeler running backs would struggle to find any holes – now suddenly every Steeler back is finding running room and ripping off 5- to 10-yard runs. This has allowed Pittsburgh to control the clock, given more opportunities to Big Ben in the passing game, and made Pittsburgh a much more dangerous offense to defend. The best news is that the Steelers have their destiny entirely in their own hands — the only winning team left on their schedule is Baltimore, and the Ravens’ defense is a shadow if its former greatness. If Pittsburgh can somehow win both Baltimore games, the division, and perhaps even a bye, is well within reach. Amazing how three weeks can change everything — right now, the Steelers are the most dangerous team in the AFC.

Escape from New York: Ben outduels Eli He’s engineered 30 drives to give his team a victory in the fourth quarter or overtime and he’s got himself two Super Bowl rings and currently stands as the only quarterback in National Football League history to put together 20 of these comebacks/go-ahead drives before the age of 30. A counterpart, drafted in the same class, has put together 28 such drives and also has two rings. Both present strong cases to be lauded as one of the NFL’s best signal callers under pressure, but it’s normally the counterpart who receives the adoration of pundits and studio talking heads. The first quarterback mentioned: Ben Roethisberger. His counterpart: Eli Manning. Sample sizes being what they are, Sunday’s game — a 24-20 Pittsburgh Steelers win over the New York Giants, complete with a Roethlisberger fourth-quarter comeback — shouldn’t be the definitive entry in the journals Shawn Curtis covers the Pittsburgh of either quarterback’s career but it Steelers for the might be time to begin including Centre County Roethlisberger in the conversation Gazette. Email him again. at sports@centre The conversation isn’t whether Roethlisberger is one of the league’s elite quarterbacks; he is. But in the short-term memory world of professional sports, Manning is the league’s newest – and therefore best – quarterbacking option in the fourth quarter. Though Pittsburgh is one of the league’s glamour franchises with more than enough attention from a wide range of national media, Roethlisberger’s play in late-game situations is sometimes shuffled to the bottom of the mental

notebook of even the most astute analysts. While Manning — the NFL’s current king of clutch — and the Giants faltered in the second half; Pittsburgh dominated the final 30 minutes overcoming the emotional Giants who were playing with the spirit of many fans affected by Superstorm Sandy. It wasn’t just all Roethlisberger. ■ Isaac Redman, the Steelers’ most recent “next man up” at running back, pounded out 147 rushing yards and the eventual game-winning score. ■ The Pittsburgh defense put a few discussion-starting flags behind them and held one of the NFL’s hottest offense to under 200 yards while rendering Manning to nearineffectiveness in the fourth. ■ Mike Wallace turned a short-yardage pass into a 51yard touchdown with speed that very few in the league can even come close to matching. Through it all, the victory reflects on the season-long consistency of Roethlisberger who is quietly having one of his finest seasons in the face of Pittsburgh’s early stumbles against inferior opponents. If any heat exists between Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, it’s not apparent in the quarterback’s play, nor in his words. “I think we’re constantly evolving, truthfully,” Roethlisberger said. “I think there are things we’re putting in midweek and taking out midweek. I think that’s just the good balance and good working relationship that we all have, this offense, coach to player and player to coach. It’s going well.”

As Roethlisberger hits his stride under pressure, as are the Steelers (5-3). Pittsburgh has won four of its last five with game-winning drives in the fourth-quarter of three of those triumphs. Sunday’s win could be the one that commands even more confidence in the Steelers and their chances as long as Roethlisberger is at the helm. “I hope so. We can talk a couple weeks down the road or whatever,” Roethlisberger said. “(New York) is a great football team and a great environment and to come out here and to play well, get this win — like I said, we left some things out there, but that’s a great defense we had to go against and you have to give them a lot of credit. To rise up and get this W is big.”

Local hero Kevin Montminy takes his game from Penns Valley to Penn State By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State sophomore and Penns Valley graduate Kevin Montminy is no stranger to success on a basketball floor. The 6-foot-3 guard was the all-time leading scorer for Penns Valley with 1,498 points and was a second-team, AA allstate selection after his senior season. He averaged 20.7 points per game that year and scored a career high 43 points against Ontario, KEVIN MONTMINY Canada’s St. Jean de Brebeuf and then 35 more the next night against Bishop Guilfoyle. Now, however, playing on a top-tier D-1 program like Penn State, Montminy is competing at a completely different level. As a preferred walk-on, he is contending with the likes of Tim Frazier, D.J. Newbill, Jermaine Marshall, Nick Colella, and freshman Akosa Maduegbunam. It is a tough road, but his confidence in his decision to play for the Nittany Lions has never wavered. And neither has his optimism about the direction that coach Pat Chambers has this program headed. “The physical nature of the game is a lot different here,” Montminy said, “especially the speed. My first summer here was the biggest transition, and then when it got to the actual season time I was getting more comfortable with the footwork, the physicality, and the quickness. “This year, I am looking to do whatever coach asks me. Whatever he wants me to

do, I’ll do as hard as I can. Just doing whatever I can to make the team better and see where this team can take us. “The leadership is tremendous here. Tim (Frazier) is a great leader. D.J. (Newbill) and Jermain (Marshall) are stepping into leadership roles, as well, and I think that we are coming in every single day and trying to get better. We have great chemistry in the locker room, and we are going to keep working and keep getting better.” Montminy had other offers after high school, of course, most of which would have given him a much easier road to earlier playing time. He hasn’t ever second guessed his decision to become a Nittany Lion, however. “I feel like I made the 100 percent right decision,” he said, “and I am really happy with it. This year I am looking to work my butt off on scout team and get the starters ready for any team we play and whatever else coach decides. I trust him, and I’ll do whatever he says.” Montminy is also aware of what he has to do with his game and what he has to improve in order to get some time on the court. “My shot, still a long way from perfect, but still pretty good,” he said. “Coach keeps telling me that the big thing for me is ball handling. My primary focus this summer was ball handling, get that left hand a little tighter and stuff like that. And to be more physical with the ball and stronger with the ball, so that was really my main focus for the summer.” During media day on Monday, the general mood was one of optimism for the Nittany Lions, who were 12-20 in Chambers’ first season last year. “I’m optimistic that we are going to play harder,” Chambers said. “We’re going to play better. We’re going to be better. The

challenge is we have to stay healthy; you always have to stay healthy. I’m optimistic that we can be better than we were last year.” Frazier, who was first team All-Big Ten last year and accounted for 58 percent of Penn State’s offense, thinks the team is far ahead of where it was this time a year ago. “Definitely miles ahead,” he said. “This point last year, we were still trying to figure out what Coach Chambers wanted, his techniques, and his vocabulary. Now a year from now, we all know exactly what he wants. We’re all older now, besides the three freshmen coming in. I think we are so far ahead as far as knowing exactly what we have to do to win under coach Chambers. We’re ready to go.” Frazier, who Chambers calls a “freak” athlete, will team up with Newbill this season and, according to Chambers, have a chance to be one of the elite backcourts in college basketball. If the frontcourt can keep up, Penn State could be a team to watch. “If they (the frontcourt) can get us a double-double every game, I would be extremely happy,” Chambers said. “I think we did achieve that in the exhibition game. Jon (Graham) and Sasa (Borovnjak) need to come every day and play extremely hard. They are going to be challenged. They are going against lottery picks, top draft picks, and they need to continue to work hard. When they give us production like that (the exhibition game), we are a good team.” For Montminy, things are more than looking up for the Lions. “We’re really tight this year,” he said. “The confidence is definitely increasing. We’ve got another year under coach Chambers, and we’re just coming in, working hard, getting better every single day. The confidence is going through the roof, and we’re pretty excited

Nittany Notes: Penn State claims field hockey title By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

UNIVERSITY PARK — The No. 1 seeded Penn State field hockey team won its second straight Big Ten tournament championship with a 2-0 victory over No. 3 seed Michigan on Sunday. Kelsey Amy, who was chosen as the tournament MVP, scored both goals for the Nittany Lions as they wrapped up the automatic NCAA bid with the victory. “I am just so thrilled for the girls,” PSU head coach Charlene Morett said. “They showed great effort and poise throughout the 70 minutes. It was a tough game between two high-quality teams and it was a great accomplishment for them.” PSU now awaits its NCAA pairing which will be announced during the selection show on Tuesday. The No. 3 Penn State women’s volleyball team racked up two more wins over the weekend to improve its record to 23-2 overall and 13-1 in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions took a 3-1 decision over No. 10 Minnesota on Friday night and then came back to blank Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon. Against Minnesota, Ariel Scott led the team with 20 kills, and sophomore Katy Slay added 11. Deja McClendon and Nia Grant each added nine kills in the match. Micha Han-

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Allen takes over as president of Arts Fest By ANNE WALKER For The Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts (CPFA) has a new president. State College attorney Katherine Allen accepted the position last month and will take over duties from former president Adam Duff. The festival will retain the time-honored traditions Centre Countians have come to associate with the five-day event, while strengthening the bond the university shares with the community. Allen, an attorney with Mcquaide-Blasko Law Office, started working with CPFA as a board member in 2007. Her friend and colleague, Rick Bryant, executive director of CPFA, facilitated her involvement. “I like involvement with non-profit activities,” Allen said, “and I served with the Women’s Resource Center. After that I looked for a similar commitment.” CPFA’s board also co-ordinates First Night State College, which attracts about 10,000 people. Bryant and Allen intend to increase the appeal of both events to a

broader cross-section of people. “Much of the festival — and First Night as well — is free,” Bryant said, as he discusses performers for each, “If you like bluegrass, classical music or rock-and-roll, you’ll find a free concert.” Bryant began work with CPFA in 1984 as a volunteer picking up trash. His background in architectural history helped him coordinate the sidewalk sale, before joining the staff in1999. He and Allen then worked together on Judge Pamela Ruest’s campaign. Now the two bring their enthusiasm, talent, dedication and experience to the job of attracting visitors to the two events that, as much as any others, highlight the best Centre County has to offer. “We want to show a lot of goodwill for Penn State and the community,” Allen stressed. “CPFA and First Night introduce people to us and who we are as a community.” Continuing, Allen feels that little will change as far as traditions festival goers have come to expect and cherish. She does hope to expand the CPFA’s appeal and increase sponsorship.

“100,000 people attend CPFA,” she explained, “and 20 percent are from out-ofstate.” Allen also mentions that CPFA recently had the honor of holding the second-highest rank out of 200 national arts festivals rated by Sunshine Artist, a publication for artists and craftsmen who participate in festivals. She says she looks forward to working with CPFA’s staff to present 2013’s festival. “It’s a small staff,” she said, “but they’re competent and willing to take care of a lot of details.” During the next nine months, Bryant, Allen and the 13 board members have resolved to make a great festival even more exciting and expansive with their goals of increased sponsorship, participation and attendance. Allen urges anyone who has never experienced CPFA or First Night to work it into their schedule. “We’re building bridges,” she stressed, “bringing together the university, artists from across the nation and any people otherwise not involved.”


‘Prometheus’ is ‘Alien’ all over again PennDOT invites students to enter art competition By ROY MORRIS For The Gazette

It’s been 33 years since Ridley Scott’s “Alien” literally burst onto our screens, and into movie folklore. Who can forget that ominous tagline: “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Then came James Cameron’s excellent sequel “Aliens” — and the franchise was born. Even with several hit-and-miss sequels that followed, the “Alien” universe was safely locked into our psyche and would continue to scare us silly no matter what age we were. So now it is only fitting that Ridley Scott should take the helm once more, and bring the story full circle. “Prometheus” takes us back — before “Alien,” before Ripley (Sigouney Weaver) — before it all started back in 1979. It is the year 2089 and a discovery of cave paintings in Scotland, that appear to be evidence of ancient human contact with alien life-forms, that leads to a scientific journey to a distant planet in search of these supposed aliens and hopefully some answers as to the origin of mankind. Of course, we know what happens next — the discovery of the said aliens and the obligatory fight for life that will follow — of course we know, but it doesn’t lessen the impact of the horror that will surely unfold. I was pulled right back in to the world of “Alien” and in to that now familiar universe of sheer terror and the unexpected. Having said that, Ridley Scott has taken this simple premise and woven an intricately tight and shocking thriller that asks the age old questions about genetics and whether we should be messing with nature. The movie left me breathless from the start. Even with all my years of accumulated knowledge of the “Alien” saga, I was kept on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t wait to be terrorized once again.

From Gazette staff reports

Scott has put together an interesting cast, most notably Naomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Logan Marshall-Green who all shine from the start. Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron brings in a powerful support while the excellent Idris Elba is way under-used. The story rattles along a quite a pace and, despite some simplistic dialogue and a few plot contrivances (odd when the theoretical and ethical depth of the story is so immense) it works and works well because Scott has total control of his universe and all who live there. He wraps us up in the horror and takes no prisoners. Overall — and this is from a true fan of the whole “Alien” universe — it is a truly exciting revisit of the original nightmare, stunningly realized by the visual mastery of Scott and Co. One of the reasons that “Alien” became such a classic of its day was the amazing design and implementation of the actual aliens. H. R. Giger’s original concepts still reverberate throughout this prequel that sets the stage for the first “Alien” movie to begin. With stunning setpiece photography and lighting design, the eerie feel that was all

too prevalent in the original, comes straight back and un-nerves us in no uncertain terms. I was spooked, as I had been 33 years ago. I was right back in there. Ridley Scott has become one of Hollywood’s most powerful movie producers and has certainly earned his place as one of the worlds best directors. Through films such as “Alien” and “Bladerunner” and “Legend” then on to “Thelma & Louise” and “Gladiator” and “Black Hawk Down” to “Hannibal” and “American Gangster,” he has gained the kind of respect that certainly befits a film maker of his caliber. However, for all his plaudits and awards, he remains that simple visual storyteller who, regardless of all the technology and special effects that accompany his work, takes us far deeper into his created world. He does not let us go until the very last frame. His unique use of mise-en-scene has defined a generation of movie makers that have followed in his footsteps. Thanks to him, they have all been able to express themselves, as he had back then, and have enriched movies in so many ways. Rating: Five stars (out of five).

Demystifying bonds Recently, I fielded calls about the new Centre County Hospital Authority Bonds to provide financing for the Mount Nittany Medical Center Project. I realized that many people were uncertain about what bonds were all about and how they worked. Investing in bonds can be a sound way to balance your portfolio and get a pre-determined yield on the money invested. Bonds are debt instruments — unlike stocks or equities — and often are called fixed income securities. They are basically IOUs from muor Judy Loy is the CEO nicipalities of the State College businesses who firm Nestlerode & have issued the Loy, Inc. Email her bond as a way to at jloy@nestlerode. borrow money com. for expansion, acquisitions or other uses. The advantage to investing in bonds is that they are a safer investment vehicle than stocks, although bond returns are often lower than stocks. Purchasing bonds as part of your overall investment portfolio is a good counter to the return fluctuations common in stocks. Typically, when the stock market is doing poorly, the yield on bonds is steady.


BOND BASICS There are several concepts about bonds that will help you understand them better:

■ Coupon — Coupon is the interest paid on the bond. (Bonds once came with actual interest coupon books, hence the name.) Bonds are issued for a specific time period, and the bond interest is usually a fixed rate or return, although some bonds do have variable rates. Interest is usually paid twice a year on bonds. So if you have a $1000 bond paying 6%, you would get a check for $60 a year, or $30 twice a year. ■ Maturity — Maturity is the length of time before the par value of a bond reaches its full value; put another way, at “maturity” the bondholder receives the full value of the bond. Bonds that mature in less than five years are usually classified as short-term bonds; intermediateterm bonds are issued with maturities of five to 12 years, and long-term bonds have maturities of 12 years or more. ■ Par value — The par value, often referred to as “face value” or “principal value,” is how much the bondholder will receive at bond maturity. For instance, a U.S. Savings Bond with a value of $100 will be worth $100 on the date it can be redeemed. ■ Bond rating — The bond rating refers to the quality of the bond, or the ability of the bond issuer to pay its financial obligations. Standard & Poor’s is one of the top independent rating agencies that rates bonds. The rating basically asks the question, “Does the bond issuer have the financial strength to pay back the bond and the interest stipulated in the bond indenture?”

UNDERSTANDING YIELDS It is also important to understand

the types of yields on a bond: nominal yield, current yield and yield to maturity. Nominal yield is the coupon interest rate (see above). Current yield considers the current market price of the bond, which may be different from par value, and can give you a different return on that basis. For instance, if you bought a $2,000 par value bond with an annual coupon rate of 5 percent ($2000 x .05 = $100) on the current market for $1600, your actual yield would be 6.25 percent because you would be earning the $100 on a value of $1600 vs. $2000 ($100/$1600 = 6.25 percent). Yield to Maturity is the most complicated calculation. It reflects the coupon rate, current market rate, time to maturity, and presumes the interest on the bond is reinvested at the bond’s coupon rate. It is best to work with a financial planner on this calculation since it is quite tricky to calculate. Bonds can be purchased from a full-service or discount brokerage, or directly from a bond broker who usually requires a $5000 minimum investment. Mutual funds that invest in only bonds are also a good way to buy bonds since bond funds usually purchase a wide-range of bonds from many different types of entities, which diversifies the risk. In summary, bonds are fixed-income investments that can help diversify risk in your portfolio. They have a pre-determined set rate of return and bond ratings help you know which bonds are of better quality than others. Bonds do have risk, including interest rate risk and default risk.

Turn it up to 11 11 ways listening to Spinal Tap can increase sales DAVID M. MASTOVICH

David M. Mastovich is president of MASSolutions Inc. For more information, go to

The cult classic mockumentary, “This is Spinal Tap,” makes fun of the pretensions of hard rock and heavy metal bands. In one scene in the movie, a guitarist brags about his special amplifier that goes up to 11 instead of the standard 10 volume setting. When asked why the 10 setting isn’t just set to be the loudest, the puzzled guitarist pauses and defensively says:

“These go to 11.” In honor of Spinal Tap, here are 11 ways to “Turn it up to 11” and increase sales: ■ Identify your true target customers. Many companies try to convince themselves that certain market segments should buy from them. When you aren’t selling to ideal customers, you end up with more “no’s” or more unhappy former customers. ■ Find out what you’re really selling. The old “feature/benefit” model isn’t as effective as focusing on the customer experience. ■ Tell memorable stories instead of using jargon filled sales talk. Sales messages shouldn’t be the same as slogans or ads. ■ Offer incentives, not rewards. Your compensation plan has to move your sales people. They have to want and need to hit their goals.

■ Build a sales team, not a sales department. You want a team of sales reps that feed off of each other. ■ Keep the keepers. Motivate both peak and consistent performers. Too often the so called rainmakers get all the attention. ■ Say goodbye to the “mis-fits.” When it’s not a fit, you know it, they know it, their peers know it. Make it official and help them find a better fit. ■ Coach’em up. Training isn’t a once a year thing. Mentor, coach and educate on a daily basis. ■ Focus on pre call prep, every call, every time. It’s the difference between order takers and real salespeople. ■ When in doubt ask a question, preferably an open ended one. ■ Listen. They’ll tell you whether they’re real or fake. If they’re for real, they’ll also tell you how to sell them. Then close the business.

Smeal grad provides $300K gift to promote leadership From Gazette staff reports UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State alumni Anthony J. and Marta M. Buzzelli have committed $300,000 to enhance leadership development in the Smeal College of Business through the Anthony Buzzelli Endowment for Leadership. The endowment will provide sustainable annual funding for the college’s Sapphire Leadership Symposium and other programs that nurture leadership qualities in business students. Anthony Buzzelli’s service as a mentor to Smeal students spans many years. Most recently, he worked with Sapphire students

who were developing the Sapphire Leadership Symposium. Thanks to funding from this new gift, the symposium will continue to grow and develop to meet the needs of students who are exploring concepts in leadership. “I am convinced that well-designed leadership development opportunities are essential to the future success of today’s college students,” Buzzelli said. “The Smeal College provides an amazing value to young people and their families — strong academics delivered in an atmosphere of honor, integrity and respect. Marta and I hope our gift will allow for continuity as the college develops innovative leadership

opportunities that touch a wide range of students.” Buzzelli retired in May 2011 from Deloitte where he was vice chairman and regional managing partner for the Pacific Southwest. His 40-year career with the company included positions as national managing partner for U.S. regions, member of the executive committee, member of the board of directors and operating committee and deputy managing partner for U.S. firms. Well known for practicing what he preaches in the area of leadership, Buzzelli has long provided guidance to organizations in the communities where he has worked and lived. He has served

on the board of the United Way Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Foundation, World Affairs Council, Town Hall Los Angeles, the Southern California Leadership Network and the California Science Center. “The Smeal community thanks Tony and Marta for this wonderful investment in our students,” said Charles H. Whiteman, the John and Becky Surma Dean of the college. “Our undergraduates will find many opportunities to be leaders during their time on campus. The Buzzelli Endowment will ensure that we can offer meaningful activities that will allow them to examine their experiences and learn from them

in an even deeper way.” In addition to this gift, the couple created the Anthony and Marta Buzzelli Trustee Scholarship in 2010. The scholarship supports accounting majors with financial need. Anthony Buzzelli has been a member of the Smeal Board of Visitors since 2005 and has served on the Accounting Advisory Board. He was named Accounting Alumnus of the Year in 2003. He graduated with a degree in accounting in 1971. Marta Buzzelli is a 1971 graduate of the College of the Liberal Arts, where she majored in English. The Buzzellis reside in Somerset, Va., and they have three children.
