Students hope help comes out of Blue By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — It’s time for Blue Out Beaver Stadium: the sequel. Back in November, when news of the child sex abuse scandal broke, Penn State graduate students Laura March and Stuart Shapiro knew they had to do something to help the victims. “We were just sitting on the couch on a Sunday afternoon. Stuart and I were just so upset,” March recalled. “We wanted to do something. I Googled the ribbon for child abuse and it turned out to be blue. Things just sort of took off from there.” During that emotional week, March and Shapiro organized the first Blue Out. Most of those in the stands at Beaver Stadium against Nebraska on Nov. 12 wore blue. “It was definitely an emotional day. We saw a lot of blue in the stands that day. When I saw the aerial shots of Beaver Stadium, it was just incredible how everyone came together,” March said. Now, 10 months later, March and Shapiro have set out to duplicate last season’s powerful afternoon. During this week’s contest with Temple at Beaver Stadium fans are encouraged to wear blue to the game, which kicks off at 3:30 p.m. According to Shapiro, the university has gotten completely behind this incarnation

of the Blue Out. “I can’t say enough about Penn State athletics, the administration. It’s been a really strong partnership. We reached out to athletics and we set a date. It’s really what we wanted to do. Penn State is so big into helping children. It’s like another THON,” Shapiro said. March and Shapiro have worked in collaboration with One Heart: Penn State Students Against the Sexual Abuse of Children. There’s a line of merchandise, including special T-shirts for Saturday’s game. Proceeds from the sale of T-shirts will go to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR). “I think it’s a really timely event for a couple of reasons,” said Kristen Houser, vice president of communications and development for PCAR. “What has happened at Penn State has really ripped apart the community. This is an opportunity for people to come together, cheer for your team, support your school, but also support victims and survivors of child sex abuse.” For March, the Blue Out has a very special meaning: Shortly after the first Blue Out, her father, Nick Petnick, passed away. In her mind, the two events will be forever linked. “One of the last conversations I had with him, we were talking about the Blue Out,” March said. “So for me, this is an

March and Shapiro are hoping to make those numbers rise significantly. Student groups will be collecting donations outside Beaver Stadium and inside the gates. “This effort has been incredible,” Shapiro said. “I make sure that we never lose sight of the difference we’re making every single day.” According to Houser, the Blue Out is

chance to raise awareness and make a difference. “One in five people experience sexual assault at some point in their lives,” Houser said. “This is a way to remind people that there are ways to help. As adults, we need to be responsible for protecting our children and keeping them safe.” Those wishing to contribute can also do so through the website, www.pcar.org or text Prevent to 80077 to donate $10.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Area couple turns dream into reality By CHRIS MORELLI editor@centrecountygazette.com

PLEASANT GAP — For Clay and Melanie Phillips, the dream has become a reality — again. The husband and wife have teamed up to open the Village Eatinghouse Marketplace & Cafe, located at 105 S. Main St. in Pleasant Gap. If the name of their

shop sounds familiar, it should. They once owned another Village Eatinghouse, which was located in Boalsburg. “We closed it 15 years ago and just did catering after that,” Clay Phillips said. “We lost touch with all of our customers. We missed them, so we’re back in the game.” The Village Eating

is a collaborative effort of local Penn State Hershey faculty, Mount Nittany Medical Center faculty and other medical providers in the community. While this inaugural class does take some of its courses in Hershey, all of the students live in State College, Perone said, and they do most of their rotations locally. “We didn’t have the opportunity to have that continuity before,” Perone

UNIVERSITY PARK — On Saturday, hundreds of Penn State alumni, students and fans clad in blue and white called for President Rodney Erickson and members of the university’s board of trustees to step down from their positions at the “Rally for Resignations.” Held on Old Main lawn, the rally included speeches from distinguished alumni like former Nittany Lion and Pittsburgh Steelers running back Franco Harris and Trustee Anthony Lubrano. While standing next to a cardboard cutout of former Nittany Lion football coach Joe Paterno, Harris addressed the crowd. “Penn State has stood for 160 years, but it only took one night for the board of trustees to lay a path of destruction,” he said. "We are not a cult as many believe, but we are loyal to our alma mater. The board of trustees have laid a path of destruction never seen on any college campus." Lubrano, one of three newly elected board members, said that since he took his seat in May, he has been working to serve the university in the best way

SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012 Students, from page 1 said. Something that’s really encouraged Perone about the regional campus is the enthusiasm of the attending physicians, he said. “They were really dedicated,� Perone said on meeting them, and feels they will provide a “good learning atmosphere.� Right now Perone is studying “a little of everything,� he said. He’ll pick a concentration when he chooses his residency, he said, which will be done during his fourth year. Some clinical rotations include surgery, psychiatry, internal medicine, family practice, gynecology, pediatrics, neurology, and rural and underserved medicine. Perone also has the oppor-

THE CENTRE COUNTY GAZETTE tunity to pick two elective blocks to study, he said. The end of each rotation is then followed by an exam. The second two years in the medical program, Perone explained, can be best compared to a job, with more work time and fewer classes. Depending on the rotation, Perone works typically five days a week at Mount Nittany Medical Center. “You learn by seeing patients ‌ and look up diagnoses,â€? he said. Perone received his undergraduate degree from Penn State, he said, so “it’s a pretty neat experience (to) go back to a place you spent four years.â€? “(I’m) excited to be back,â€? he said. “(State College) is a good place to learn medicine for years to come.â€?

Sarah Smith, another student in the inaugural class, said one of the biggest benefits of being able to do rotations locally is the chance to be more involved with patients. “We get to actively participate in a lot more things,� she said, because Mount Nittany Medical Center is a smaller hospital than Hershey. Smith, of State College, said by not moving around as much, she and the rest of the students really get a chance to become acquainted with the doctors from different specialties. “You slowly get to know all of the health personnel,� she said. Smith said there is a four-week internal medicine rotation in Hershey, but in addition to that, there are some elective rotations students get to choose, also in

Bringing medical students to State College from Hershey is part a mission to create an educational environment for training the next generation of health care providers and improve access to patient-centered, high-quality, cost-effective health care for local residents. Primary care and rural-based medicine are part of this mission, according to a press release by Penn State. The regional campus will

eventually train up to 48 college of medicine students each year, up to 24 in each of the third-and fourth-year medical classes. Some of the students may select to enroll in dual-degree programs as well, through the Smeal College of Business and other programs, the release states. A residency program in family medicine is also in development, along with various collaborative research initiatives between University Park and Hershey.

Borough council authorizes next phase of Atherton Street project By LAURA NICHOLS StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — Before a night of voting on various consent items started, an animated public hearing hour kicked off the State College Borough Council’s regular Monday night meeting. Council voted to authorize “Phase II” of the Atherton Street Corridor Project, the evening’s top consent item. The public works project, on which construction could begin in the summer of 2013, includes updates such as more lighting, brick sidewalk accents, better visibility and improved crosswalks at the College Avenue and Beaver Avenue intersections. At the beginning of the meeting during the public comment section, one resident addressed council and asked, after describing his issues with late-night delivery vehicles causing a ruckus outside of his house, if the council would consider taking former Penn State vice president Gary Schultz’s name off of the Arnold Addison award. Schultz was a recipient of the award named in honor of a former State College mayor in 2009. Members of council were hesitant to comply with the request, expressing their desire to wait to pass any judgment until

Schultz’s trial concludes. Some members of council also said they aren’t in the position to rescind the award. “Only the NCAA and the Soviet Union rewrite history,” council member James Rosenberger said. Following an unrelated comment regarding the state of the downtown State College economy, Borough Manager Tom Fountaine, while he could not divulge too many details, said that in the past two home football games, the Borough parked more cars than it did over the course of the first two home football games in 2011. Meanwhile, where other action items were concerned, one issue that arose concerned one of the two ordinances to be amended. The vehicle peddler eating and drinking license was passed. When council arrived at the handbills ordinance, there was much discussion over whether to table it for future discussion. When it came to a vote, the handbills failed to be tabled. Also, council voted to move a decision on a Park Maintenance Facility to further discussion before it would go ahead any further. Borough Council meetings are open to the public and held at 7:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Municipal Building, 234 S. Allen St.

Rally, from page 1 possible. He feels the best way to do this is to remember people like Paterno, who many believe helped to make Penn State the university it is today. “We cannot move forward by leaving the people behind who made us who we are,â€? Lubrano said. Lubrano also asked those in attendance to continue making their voices heard. Many of those Lubrano and Harris spoke to did so during the rally through signs demanding the resignation of Erickson and the trustees. Others voiced their opinions during the speeches. “We are here because what the board of trustees did was just wrong. They should be ashamed for their actions and we want all of them to step down. They’re an embarrassment. They do not represent my Penn State,â€? said a Penn State student from New Jersey who asked to simply be identified as Jessica. John O’Donnell, a faculty member in the College of Health and Human Development, said that though many people were not happy with his decision to speak at the rally, he felt it was necessary for his beliefs to be heard. “If we didn’t have a football team, we’d still be a worldclass university ‌ I think I know the culture of this university after 48 years better than Louis Freeh or Mark Emmert,â€? he said. The 467-page Freeh Report, released on July 12, 2012, concluded that Paterno, Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz were complicit in “conceal(ing) Sandusky’s activities from the Board of Trustees, the University community and authorities.â€? While the rally did attract some media attention, it didn’t go as well as organizers had hoped. A Penn State alum from State College identified as Colleen said she was a little disappointed in the rally turnout. “This is an important issue. The fact that our president would simply agree to the (NCAA) sanctions is, in my mind, a little disturbing,â€? she said. “He’s shown no leadership throughout this ordeal and like many, I feel it is time for him to go."

PSU President Rodney Erickson to address National Press Club By LAURA NICHOLS StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — In a speech to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Penn State President Rodney Erickson will address the state of the university. Erickson will be in the nation’s capital on Oct. 31 as part of the club’s Speakers Luncheon Series. According to Penn State, Erickson will discuss what the school has learned from the child sex abuse scandal, reforms it has put in place and “its ongoing commitment to its core mission of teaching, research and service.� Also to be included in Erickson’s speech: ■ Penn State’s ranking as one of the top 50 world universities; ■ the University’s student-athlete 88 percent graduation rate, which

tops the NCAA Division I average; ■ the robust growth of Penn State’s research enterprise with more than $807 million in research; expenditures; ■ the $10.7 million Penn State students raised last year for THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. “In the face of the challenging times we’ve experienced, it’s important that the world knows Penn State is and always will be a world-class university with a mission of teaching, research and service,� Erickson said. “Penn State is defined not by the actions of a few, but by the deeds of hundreds of thousands committed to making our world a better place – leaders in our communities, academia, business, research, athletics and philanthropy.� The speech comes subsequent to Penn State’s inaugural conference on

child sexual abuse, to be held Oct. 2930 at the Penn Stater. Erickson also will discuss Penn State’s commitment to making child sexual abuse prevention part of Penn State’s mission, according to a news release. “Penn State is adamant about focusing our energy in a positive way to help identify, prevent and treat child sexual abuse — a challenge that, as we have learned in the most personal of ways, knows no bounds,� he said. According to Penn State, the National Press Club is one of the nation’s premier speaking venues with more than 3,500 members. Luncheon speakers are selected by a committee under the direction of the club president. For more information about Erickson’s speech, please visit press.org.

State rep speaks out against NCAA By LAURA NICHOLS StateCollege.com

HARRISBURG — State Rep. Frank Dermody released a statement on Tuesday after the NCAA announced only one-quarter of the $60 million endowment fund created by the sanctions would remain in the state. On Monday, Dermody announced he was in contact with the NCAA regarding its task force and the distribution of the funds, which will come out of Penn State in five $12 million installments and will go toward organizations that support the prevention and awareness of child sexual abuse and offer victim treatment.

The NCAA announced on Tuesday it has created a 10-person task force to decide where the money will be allocated. Penn State was fined by the NCAA in July after Jerry Sandusky was convicted of rampant child sexual abuse in June. Penn State was permitted to name two individuals to the task force. In his statement, Dermody, DCheswick, said: “It is good to see two Pennsylvania members of the task force, and to hear that at least one-quarter of the money will be used in Pennsylvania. But this still falls short of the expectations of Pennsylvania’s child abuse preven-

tion and victim advocacy community. The NCAA obviously is listening, but they have not yet heard us. “This endowment, created in the wake of a Pennsylvania tragedy, is funded by Pennsylvania money. There is no question that every single dollar from that endowment should be used to fund Pennsylvania-based child sexual abuse programs. “Harsh state budget cuts led to reduction and even elimination of programs to help victims here. As the task force develops a philosophy for using the endowment, they need to ensure that Pennsylvania victims are not forgotten and are treated fairly.�

Exceptional service. Excellent value. Safer for the planet.

Hope still lingers on health reform Scripps Howard News Service This may be grabbing at straws that there is some hope for ending the poisonous partisan deadlock over “Obamacare,” but it could be a positive sign that former Senate Republican leader Bill Frist is emerging as a voice in the health care debate. And in one of those “only in Washington” tectonic political shifts, he is doing it in partnership with former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle. Many believe the two politicians would never speak to each other again — let alone cooperate on remaking one of Congress’ most farreaching laws. Frist defied tradition and Senate collegiality by campaigning against Daschle in the Democrat’s home state of South Dakota, a race Daschle ultimately lost. But now the two have united under the banner of the Bipartisan Policy Center to defend critical sections of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, large sections of which Frist agrees with, an act of heresy in GOP congressional circles. Frist knows health care and health care policy. He’s a heart-lung transplant surgeon whose family founded a giant hospital-management company. He is working with other health care specialists on a report due out early next year — and it will not recommend repealing the Affordable Care Act, which Republicans say will be their first order of business if they are in charge. The problem for congressional Republicans is that the public is coming to like parts of the Obama plan — universal access, not being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, no lifetime limit on coverage and coverage for dependents up to age 26. And there is great skepticism among older voters about the Romney-Ryan plan to begin replacing Medicare and its direct payments with vouchers to buy private health insurance. Frist is a strong advocate of the individual mandate and the state-based health-insurance exchanges. And for all the bogus GOP talk of “death panels,” he is calling for reforms to incentives to use expensive high technology on terminally ill patients. He has noted that 30 percent of Medicare costs, more than $150 billion annually, is spent in the last months of life. The Republican slogan of “repeal and replace” has a nice ring to it, but is probably politically unworkable. There are ways to reform health care, however, and Frist and Daschle could provide the gravitas and bipartisanship to make that happen.

Curtain call for historic theater? As Bellefonte Borough and Centre County leaders look to the future and discuss the restoration of the building destroyed in the recent fire, performing arts fans from throughout the region are hopeful that the Garman Opera House can not only be restored to its former glory, but also reopened as a venue for plays, musicals, music acts, films, events and more. The legacy of the Garman offers a rich tapestry of America’s theatrical heritage. Perhaps it would be wise to Harry Zimbler is a remind ourselves freelance writer of its place in who resides in local and state Pennsylvania Furnace. He is a fre- history. In 1890, The quent contributor Keystone Gazette to The Gazette. trumpeted the opening of the Garman with the following headline: “A Beautiful Temple of Amusement to be Opened Thursday.” In the story, the Gazette reporter stated that “Bellefonte now has an opera house which is as handsome as any in the state, outside Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.” The Garman opened on Sept. 11, 1890, with a performance of a romantic melodrama staged by a touring theatrical company. According to “The Democratic Watchman” newspaper, that romantic melodrama was titled “Nordeck.” The reviewer wrote: “It might almost be called the ideal romance and melodrama. When the curtain went down, the people were loathe to leave, so well entertained

had they been.” Getting the Garman Opera House built was not an easy task, nor was it guaranteed to happen. In fact, The Keystone Gazette, in reporting on the decision to build the venue stated: “The subject of building an opera house has become quite a chestnut, and it was the general opinion that there was not a man in Bellefonte who had backbone enough to venture into the enterprise.” Happily, Bellefonte businessman David Garman did have the backbone. At the end of the 19th century, influenced by popular French and American Civil War-era melodramas, the Garman welcomed many traveling road shows, melodramas, vaudeville and first-run motion pictures. In fact, it was a popular stop on the vaudeville circuit that included Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. In the mid-1890s, the Garman was selected as the venue in which to debut the song “After the Ball,” later used in several musicals including “Show Boat.” The song, which sold more than 2 million copies of sheet music, was among the top sellers in the history of Tin Pan Alley, the New York City music publishing region. In 1892, Professor Bristol’s Equine Paradox performed at the Garman. The newspaper notices mentioned that a train — likely from the Buffalo Run Railroad Co. — arrived carrying “thirty splendid horses, twenty five people and an orchestra. The horses do everything but talk.” The Garman Opera House has a history filled with adversity, but heroes have always stepped forward. In 1935, for example, the “gem of beauty” as it was known, was sold on the auction block for $2,700. The Keystone Gazette noted that “The Garman Opera House has indeed fallen on evil days. It has lost the glamour

and intrigue it possessed when troupes of show folk entertained capacity houses.” Along the way, upgrades were made to the theater, done to accommodate the large scenic pieces that were brought in by touring groups. Many shows were at a disadvantage because of a smaller stage. In a 2004 article in Town and Gown, author Nadine Kofman detailed the history of the theater from the 1960s forward. Films were played in the Garman until 1961. Then it was a storage space for Wolf Furniture Co. It was scheduled to be demolished in the 1980s; Garman Associates stepped forward to keep it in “friendly hands.” The associates included Judge Charles Brown, Gino Fornicola, Walt Peterson, Joseph Teplicer and Dick Kisslack. Later, Pat Casher and Bruce Cramer came forward to save the theater. Later, David and Barbara Harry stepped into the hero role, followed by Kathryn Iadarola. So, the theater that has welcomed legends like Tom Mix, magician Harry Houdini, George Burns and Gracie Allen, and the Flora Dora Girls, now awaits its next hero. Ironically, the lyrics to “After the Ball” sum up the way many may feel after the recent fire: “After the ball is over, After the break of morn — After the dancers’ leaving; After the stars are gone; Many a heart is aching, If you could read them all; Many the hopes that have vanished After the ball.” Here’s hoping that, like a typical melodrama, the good guys win and a hero steps forward to save this “Beautiful Temple of Amusement.”

You’re gonna like the way you look It is said — accurately, in my experience — that men’s fashion sense stops somewhere during the junior or senior year in high school and, absent an external force like the military, a workplace dress code or a wife, guys will continue to dress like that until they are wheeled into the hearse, likely still wearing their high-school letter jacket. I am now fighting a rearguard action in my own household against a relentless force that is deterDale McFeatters is a mined to get me columnist for into lavender Scripps-Howard shirts with News Service. matching ties — who knew that ties matched shirts? — because suddenly all the TV anchormen are wearing them. Regrettably, I don’t look like an anchorman; I look like the bartender who asks, “You wanna glass with that?” I was settling in with last week’s copy of the Sunday New York Times, having forgotten that this was when the men’s-fall-fashion issue comes out, when out of the folds of the paper plummeted a thick, slippery magazine called just “T,” catching me and my lap by surprise.

“T” is printed on heavy, glossy stock, 136 pages of photos — they don’t overburden you with text — devoted to making you feel dowdy, inferior and unstylish, assuming you have enough fashion sense to feel dowdy, inferior, etc. The front cover featured hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, looking perfectly amiable. The back cover featured a model gazing out over a bottle of Bleu de Chanel. He had an unfocused expression, as if he were wondering, “Maybe I should have put a few drops on my wrist instead of drinking it.” The company’s website described the product as “eau de toilette travel spray.” The “travel” probably means it’s small enough that the TSA won’t confiscate it. Inside the front cover there’s a double-page portrait of a handsome group of a dozen or so dressed in autumnal-looking tweeds, heavy knit sweaters, sturdy boots and flat caps who, for no apparent reason, have found themselves hanging out in the middle of the woods with period furniture and luggage. Tommy Hilfiger must have had the foresight to do this last October or else paid someone to truck in a lot of dead leaves. The clothes look quite presentable. You could even imagine actual people wearing them. And the first mention of prices is in a Macy’s ad — $59.50 for a shirt and $49.98 for jeans. But this is apparently to lull you into a quiet sense of acceptance for the outlandish prices and clothes yet

Apparently the male models must have balked at this get-up because they used an orange dummy. Then there was actor Jamie “The Adventures of Tintin” Bell in a Prada outfit that made him look like a bellhop in some kind of demonic hotel. Once you’re too far into “T” to turn back, they spring the high-end merchandise on you. Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris cuff links for $8,400. John Lobb shoes for $1,295. And then something called “Uncomplicated Watches For Not So Simple Times.” That ad featured eight watches. Not to be a nitpicker, the $9,700 Hermes was two minutes fast and the $5,900 Bell & Ross one minute slow, assuming the other six watches, including the $37,400 Vacheron Constantin Historiques, were accurate. Finally, once you get past “the French New Wave” with pants designed to make your feet look big and jackets designed to make your arms look too long, you begin to see daylight. With welcome relief you come upon a story about San Franciscobased artist Barry McGee, who says, “I find a look I like and stay with it for 20 years minimum.” If there’s such a thing as absolution in the fashion world for those of us who found our “look” in the 11th grade, this is it.

Lewistown blood gas lab receives accreditation From Gazette staff reports LEWISTOWN — Lewistown Hospital Blood Gas Laboratory received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists. The facility’s director, Dr. Jose R. Acosta, was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the excellence of the services being provided. Lewistown Hospital Blood Gas Laboratory is one of more than 7,000 CAP-accredited facilities worldwide. The U.S. Federal government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation

Program, begun in the early 1960s, as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.

CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and record, and overall management. For more information, visit www.lewistownhospital.org

USE THESE TIPS TO HELP YOUR CHILD COPE AND UNDERSTAND TRAGIC EVENTS:

■ Keep their daily routine as normal as possible. ■ Always be honest and give answers that are simple and age-appropriate. Answer the question being asked in words they can understand. ■ Toddlers and school-age children may not understand that an event isn’t happening over and over when the news replays images, so it may be best to restrict access to certain TV shows or news cover-

age to insulate them from the traumatizing event. ■ Children often have magical thinking (believing that their actions can cause unrelated events), so you must reassure them that they are safe and they are not at fault. ■ It is difficult to protect your schoolage child from the news, so always provide age-appropriate information and facts without giving too many details, especially if your child is asking questions. ■ Older children may be able to cope better than younger children but still need support. Ask open-ended questions and encourage them to talk openly about their fears and concerns. ■ If your child was directly involved or lost someone in the tragedy, professional assistance might be necessary. When younger children experience a lot of stress, they are often unable to verbalize their fears and worries. Therefore, it’s important to look for signs and symptoms that may indicate they are having trouble coping such as nausea and vomiting; headaches; trouble sleeping; regressive behaviors such as thumb sucking, bedwetting or fear of the dark. In addition, other symptoms may include temper tantrums; a high sensitivity to sounds; aggressive behavior such as lying, bullying and engaging in disruptive behavior. Nervous habits, such as pulling hair, biting nails or scratching themselves or unusually dark or violent drawings are other actions that can indicate that your child is feeling stress. Please talk with your pediatrician or family physician if your child seems to be having trouble coping. To find a pediatrician or for more health and wellness information visit mountnittany.org.

Two generations pursue new careers at South Hills From Gazette staff reports LEWISTOWN — “Five more minutes, Mom” isn’t something that students Sam Dobbs or Tricia Bratton will be saying as they head out the door for classes this fall term. That is due to the fact that both young adults recently started taking classes at South Hills School of Business & Technology with their mothers. Sam and his mother, Lisa Dobbs, have begun their first year of study at the Lewistown school location where Sam is studying Criminal Justice, and Lisa is taking classes to become an Administrative Professional. Both Tricia Bratton and her mother, Holly Bender, are excited to pursue associate degrees in the Medical Assistant program. This year’s first day of school was a bit different from the first day they experienced in 1999, as both mothers tearfully bid their kindergartners good-bye. Fast forward 13 years — and this time, all four individuals are eager to learn new career skills together in a variety of two-year programs offered at South Hills. “It (going to college) was always drilled into Sam’s head,” Lisa said. “He knows that you need an education to get anywhere in this world.” And when she went to South Hills to work through the financial aid process, Lisa, a licensed practical nurse, started to realize that she also would be able to pursue her long-held goal of furthering her education at South Hills. Similarly, Holly Bender didn’t start thinking seriously about going to school until she was with her daughter, Tricia, at the New Student Success Luncheon held this August at South Hills. She told admissions representative, Brenda Woodward how helpful everyone was when she first met them. Sitting there, hearing what her daughter would be learning renewed her interest in the medical field. Years ago, Bender’s son had health issues, and she was touched by the care given to him by those in the medical field.

“I want to help other people like they’ve helped him,” so she talked with her daughter Tricia about it, and “she told me to go for it. She was my inspiration.” The two are accustomed to doing lots of things together, from cooking big family dinners to taking walks, talking and shopping. And all four students shared that family and friends are very encouraging as they start this journey toward their career goals. “My friends think it’s great,” Holly said. “It’s an opportunity for me to make something better of myself.” Sam is excited to see his mom take this step as well. “(It) never really was a problem — never was a big deal,” he said of going to school with his mom. “She thought it would be weird, but it’s not a big deal.” “I was the one that was worried,” Lisa added, with a smile. The mother-daughter team of Holly and Tricia look forward to studying together and encouraging each other while working through their two-year medical assistant program. “I’ll just keep pushing her,” Tricia said of her mother, Holly, while stating she’s not about to give up on her dreams of working in the medical field. “I’ll do what I’ve always done with her — I will push,” Holly said, as she looks forward to homework, studying and test-taking. Although Sam admits there will be an adjustment of “getting over the initial shock of something new,” he’s very excited to be “starting what has been my biggest interest since I was little” — working in law enforcement. South Hills School of Business & Technology is a post-secondary career school, offering associate degree programs in 12 career fields. Schools are also located in State College, Altoona and Philipsburg.

SCASD approves revised policy regarding abuse From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE — State College Area School District’s Board of Directors approved three policies at the board meeting on Sept. 10, including revised Policy 806 governing Child/Student Abuse.

Because the overwhelming majority of district students are minors, district employees are familiar with reporting regulations and work closely with families in all situations. The professional staff engages in yearly training and reminders relating to their role as mandated reporters. District

SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED

administrators wanted to expand beyond the current training to include support staff who do not work directly with students, but who may become aware of a reportable incident (e.g., second shift custodians). Administrators and employees completed multiple steps throughout the spring regarding child abuse and training for mandatory reporters and others. Administrators felt it was important for these steps to be complete before moving forward with the recommended changes of Policy 806. Early in 2012, the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance conducted training for district counselors, nurses, paraprofessionals, Learning Enrichment teachers, and school psychologists on identification

and reporting child abuse. Following that step, PFSA conducted a “train the trainer” session for counselors and nurses (two staff in each building) who will provide onsite training and updates to building staff on mandated reporting. PFSA reviewed the revisions made to the district policy, provided comments and supported the enhancements put in place by the district. In addition, the state recently passed an update to Act 126 governing new training requirements for Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse. The district is ahead of this governance because of the “train the trainer model” in place. The district will continue to be compliant with these regulations and all district employees will be fully trained by the deadline of December 2013.

Snow Shoe hosts fall festival, car show By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SNOW SHOE — The Snow Shoe Fall Festival and Car Show was held at Snow Shoe Park on Sept. 15. This annual event featured a car show, craft and flea market vendors, food stands and live music. Event organizer, Betty Lou Dudish, said the event is growing larger each year. She said that 38 vendors were registered for the Fall Fest this year. Many vendors represented local organizations such as the Snow Shoe Fire Company and the Mountaintop Swimming Pool Board. The main recipient of the event’s proceeds this year is the Veterans’ Memorial in Snow Shoe. The memorial was erected in 1946, remodeled in 1976, and now needs to be refurbished. A large stone with insignias of each branch of the American armed

services is planned for the memorial, and it is estimated to cost around $20,000. Community leaders hope to have the memorial finished by Memorial Day of 2013. Mountaintop Swimming Pool Board president, Tom Taylor, was grateful to the area residents for their help in the board’s fundraising activities which raised over $62,000 in less than one year. The funds paid for some repairs and upgrades which allowed the pool to open this June after not being open in 2011. “People really worked to bring the town together,” said Taylor. He noted that pool memberships this year are up from previous years’ numbers. Further renovations are scheduled to begin this week. The aging and cracked concrete pool deck will be replaced and landscaping will be done. The flea market and craft

booths were filled with a wide variety of decorative, hand crafted and antique items, as well as home grown vegetables. Food vendors enjoyed a brisk business feeding crowds of hungry patrons. The car show attracted nearly 100 entries of vehicles of all descriptions. Andy and Deb Sprankle of Tyrone showed their cherry red 1934 Chevy sedan hot rod. The Chevy has a fiberglass body from Motion Classics in Knox. Andy and his son-in-law did most of the work on the car, and are now working on a 1937 Ford. The Sprankles drove the car to Tennessee and back, and also took the car for a lap on the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond. “I got it up over 100 (miles per hour), and didn’t look down at the gauge after that,” Andy Sprankle said. Floyd Askey brought his 1953 Ford Custom sedan from West Milton to the show. This car is in

Bellefonte Area Mission Central HUB now open From Gazette staff reports BELLEFONTE — A new Bellefonte Area Mission Central HUB recently opened at Trinity United Methodist Church, located at 128 W. Howard St. The hours of operation are from 9 to 11 a.m. on Monday and 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is self-sustaining through donations made by individuals, churches, community organizations and the like. UMCOR is the humanitarian relief arm of the United Methodist church. UMCOR works globally to alleviate human suffering and advance hope and healing. Specific programs address issues of health, sanitation, poverty, sustainable agriculture, nutrition and disaster relief. The work of UMCOR reaches people in more than 80 countries including the United States without regard to race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. A primary function of UMCOR is to provide relief-supply kits through Mission Central, located in Mechanicsburg, and its HUBs. These kits help provide care for people during times of crisis and include health kits, sewing kits, school supply kits, birthing kits and cleaning buckets among

others. The contents of these kits are provided by generous donors and collected at HUBS where volunteers assemble, verify and pack the kits for delivery to Mission Central where they can be sent to where they are needed most. Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack access to essential supplies and make a tangible difference in people’s lives. The first project for the Bellefonte HUB will be the collection of supplies for use in school kits as outlined by Mission Central. The items needed are: Blunt scissors (rounded tip; no plastic scissors please), paper (spiral bound notebooks or packs of loose-leaf paper, not more than 150 sheets), pencil sharpener (hand held at least 1½ inches long), ruler (30 centimeter, hard or flexible; no advertisements please), pencils (unsharpened, No. 2 yellow), eraser (2½ inches; no advertisements please), crayons (24-count box only). UMCOR would also appreciate donations of sturdy material to make tote bags in which to put the supplies.

nearly original condition, with its flathead V-8 engine and three speed manual transmission with a steering column-mounted shifter intact. Harry Whitman, of Boalsburg, showed a spotless 1966 Mustang Sprint 200 convertible. The Sprint 200 was a limited-edition Mustang using the Ford 200 cubic inch inline six-cylinder engine, along with some extra chrome and graphics. It is said that Ford produced this version of the Mustang because demand for the popular 289 cubic inch V-8 was exceeding their supply, and they had plenty of the sixes available because of sagging sales of the Ford Falcon compact, which used the same 200 cubic inch engine. Whitman’s convertible is a beauty in bright red with a black top. Bob and Denise Dixson brought their shiny dark green 1953 Chevy pickup down from Frenchville to the show. This

truck had belonged to Deb’s father, who had purchased it from its original owner at Carlisle in the 1980s. The truck was restored to its original condition, keeping its original six-cylinder engine, three speed manual transmission and wooden bed floor. Donald and Judy Reffner came in from Martinsburg with two seldom seen Fords — a turquoise and white 1960 Ford F-100 pickup truck and a powder blue and white 1958 ford Fairlane four door sedan. Fords of 1957 and 1959 vintage are often seen in car shows, but the 1958s are much rarer. The Reffner’s sedan features an extended bumper with a Continental spare tire and fender skirts, both popular add-on items for cars in the 1950s. The Snow Shoe Fall Festival was a well-attended event which helped raise funds for several good causes in the Mountaintop area community.

PennDOT work continues near Lemont From Gazette staff reports STATE COLLEGE —PennDOT’s work to replace the Slab Cabin Run bridge on state Route 3011 (East Branch Road) near Lemont is continuing, with significant work scheduled for this week. Replacing the current, structurally deficient bridge will provide area motorists with smoother, safer and more efficient travel across a modern structure. East Branch Road remains closed during this project and the detour remains in effect through November. Message boards are in place to alert drivers to the detour. Since daily traffic in this area is heavy, drivers should expect slow moving traffic on the detour and travel delays. The detour uses state Route 3011 south (East Branch Road), Business 322 east (Atherton Street), state Route 3010 north (Warner Boulevard), U.S. Route 322 west at the Oak Hall interchange, state Route 26 north at the State College interchange, and state Route 3011, south (Pike Street) at Houserville. Should work progress and weather conditions allow, PennDOT will open the new bridge earlier than the end of November. Drivers are reminded to be alert for bicyclists using the highway. Please use caution when driving near bicyclists and share the road. Overall work includes bridge replacement, bridge approach and roadway construction and paving, pipe and guide rail installation, and miscellaneous items. The Slab Cabin Run Bridge is located on state Route 3011 between College Township and State College Borough. Original construction on the 81-foot bridge took place in 1941. The bridge carries average daily traffic of 9,400 vehicles. All work is weather and schedule dependent. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $1.5 million project.

PAWS ADOPT-A-PET Charlie, a young brown Irish setter male, is a newcomer to PAWS and hopes his stay will be short with him finding a forever family before the month comes to an end. Full of young energy, Charlie can be extremely playful and mouthy at times. That energy may be too much for young children to handle, but he would do fine in a home with teenagers, other dogs and even cats. Charlie would benefit from a dog-savvy adopter since he came to PAWS without basic obedience training and has earned the reputation of being a bit of an escape artist. If you want to watch Charlie grow and mature into a wonderful dog, please visit him at PAWS, 1401 Trout Road, State College, or read more about him at http://www.centrecountypaws.org/dogs/.

SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2012

Fresh Life: Photography roots run deep My love for photography has enabled me to capture breathtaking scenery, zoom in on wildlife and share special moments with people, some whom were familiar others whom were strangers. The passion began on a trip to Florida when I was 12. Finding me laying on the ground with a disposable camera and trying to get the perfect shot of some flowers was my simple realization that photography would become my career or at least an avid hobby. This passion has allowed me to spend hours of solitude in darkrooms, work retail locations developing film, maintaining film machines, and seeing people’s lives through photos. It has also allowed me to teach wildlife photo workshops, organize photo contests, stand next to ESPN photographers at the Winter X games, capture breaking news and see details of wildlife normally unnoticeable. It officially started with an unofficial position as an intern for a local paper while in high school. I carried my camera everywhere and captured great shots Amy Debach-Confer has a degree in of good news but, after getting back to visual arts/photogthe office, had no idea how to turn on raphy and training the computers to compose a story. I as a wilderness then became involved in my high EMT and beekeeper. schools newspaper, The Trojan Crier, She can be reached where I received the top journalism at amosd14@ award, as a senior, then continued on yahoo.com with the newspaper in photography school and then a small paper based out of Wellsboro, dedicated to beauty, nature and wonder. After photographing a wedding in 2001 and taking some senior portraits, I felt my love for photography was really starting to literally pay off. Throughout the years, I have owned many types of film and digital cameras. My favorite film camera was a Sigma. Although the name wasn’t as popular as leading brands, that camera was a tank. It was hard for me to transition into the digital world as my photography schooling didn’t delve into that at the time, but I feel it allowed me to become better acquainted with the history, tradition and true core values of photography. Once the digital scene really

started to emerge, I gave it a chance and found that, yes, it was much more efficient. Among other reasons, I could now print individual photos for my scrapbooking hobby instead of waiting for the 24 or 36 pictures in my roll to be sent out for developing. Digital camera technology also allowed me to start carrying only one camera when photographing weddings. Before digital cameras, I would carry a camera loaded with T-Max black and white film and another loaded with Kodak portraiture film. Switching between the two throughout the whole wedding and reception. Now, I can change any of the values of the photograph in seconds with the ever-popular Photoshop. Personally, one of the most bothersome aspects of digital photography is the growing numbers of individuals who start businesses with their cameras without a true working knowledge or background of the subject. Candle watts, exposure times, f-stops and color theory seem to be a thing of the past because; seemingly anyone can make a good photo with the appropriate program. Without these individuals knowing the basic rule of thirds or lighting techniques though, I feel that the old-school generations of those who understand film cameras and darkrooms still take and make a better quality photograph, overall. From Joseph Nicéphore Niépce's first photograph titled “View from the Window at Le Gras” — with a full eight hour day’s exposure, to being able to develop photos on site, within minutes of taking it, the world of photography has changed dramatically over the years. Kodak, who was once the top dog of photography products since the 1880s, has recently claimed bankruptcy, and the small businesses that carry darkroom supplies, film, and cameras are slowly disappearing, as many big box stores have taken over. There are some standards still left though. The paparazzi and photojournalism haven’t changed much over the years. The paparazzi are still invading peoples lives while photojournalists are still capturing breaking news and sharing amazing moments in time with the world. When I was younger, my ultimate dream with photography was to become a National Geographic photographer. Although that dream has slowly faded, as the reality of my life changed, I still enjoy photographing environmental portraits and wildlife. If you were to dust off my old yearbook from high school, you would find the following under my senior photo. Amy Ruth Debach plans (after high school) “Photographing the World.” While I haven’t truly been around the world, I have been many places and photographed

BREAKING Nittany Lions notch first victory of Bill O’Brien Era By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Sometimes the things a football team doesn’t do in a game contribute as much to a win as the things it actually does. That was the case for Penn State in its first win of the season, 34-7, over Navy on Saturday. The Nittany Lions certainly had many successes on both sides of the ball and some breakout performances against the Midshipmen. The offense sprinted out to a 20-point early lead from which Navy could not recover. Quarterback Matt McGloin threw four touchdown passes. Allen Robinson had a career day, hauling in five catches for 136 yards and three touchdowns. Michael Zordich and Curtis Dukes, playing in place of the injured Bill Belton and Derek Day, combined for 22 carries and a total of 97 yards rushing. On defense, Penn State forced four turnovers and scored their first defensive touchdown of the season when linebacker Mike Hull scooped up a Navy fumble and raced 74 yards into the endzone. Navy did not get on the scoreboard until just over 10 minutes were left in the game, when the score was already 34-0. They even got lucky when — a la Ohio — a high McGloin pass bounced off the fingertips of Trevor Williams high into the air and into the hands of Robinson in the back of the endzone for a touchdown. Just as important as all of that, perhaps, were the things the Nittany Lions didn’t do. They did not fumble the ball. They did not throw an interception. They did not hurt themselves with penalties and wasted

time-outs. They did not panic and lose discipline against what could only be called a frantic Navy offense. And, most important to the 98,000 fans in attendance and Penn State fans everywhere, they did not miss another chance to earn coach Bill O’Brien his first win at Penn State and his first win ever as a head coach. The zero turnovers are encouraging for the Lions. Since the mistake-filled opening day against Ohio, Penn State is plus-8 in turnovers, forcing four against Virginia and another four against Navy. The Midshipmen, especially, because of their option offense are a team that cannot be given good field position due to turnovers and mistakes. And allowing Navy to build momentum in a game is very dangerous. “That is something that wherever I’ve been, we’ve always emphasized that. We’ve got to take care of the football. Matt (McGloin) does a pretty good job. When the rush is coming in on him, he has two hands on the ball and it’s close to his body and he does a pretty nice job of keeping the ball away from the defenders,” O’Brien said. On the other side, Penn State recovered three Navy fumbles — one returned for a touchdown — and picked off a Navy pass inside the 10 that ended an early Navy threat. Penn State’s ability to stop Navy drives was a key to the game. “I think we practice that,” O’Brien said. “At the beginning of practice like most teams we work on stripping the ball, we work on strip sacks, interception drills, and how to recover

the football. We talk about the rules and how it relates to turnovers and blocked kicks. It’s always emphasized and I think our kids have done a great job of being alert to those things. It’s really helped over the last couple of games.” Another thing that helped on Sat-

urday was how the PSU defense attacked the Navy option game. Navy did outgain Penn State in the game, 391-341, but the Nittany Lions’ tenacity against the Middie offense, combined with the takeaways, kept Navy off the scoreboard and allowed the Penn State offense (and Mike Hull) to put up 34 unanswered points. “Coach (Ted) Roof and I both have a lot of experience with option football,” O’Brien said. “We know Navy is a very, very tough, well coached football team. In our experience against option football, you have to try to change it up. You can’t stay in one front or one coverage the whole game and expect yourselves to stop them. “We felt that was a really good game plan. I thought Ted called a heck of a game and, more importantly, I thought the kids played great.” Penn State put together on Saturday a combination of solid, mistake-free offense with a disciplined, opportunistic defense. The result was the first win in O’Brien’s career and a hefty douse of Gatorade over his head as the game ended. In typical O’Brien fashion, however, the coach shared his happiness about the win for himself and his players, but his mind was already shifting toward this week’s opponent, Temple. “I felt very good for this football team,” he said. “I felt in many ways that it was a long time coming. I told them that it was one win and all of the hard work they put in this week and past weeks paid off. But it’s just one win, now we have to soak it in tonight. We have to get back to work on Monday and get ready for a very, very good Temple team.” Penn State will come into that game with a chance to even its record and with a little more confidence in its ability to get that done.

McGloin believes Robinson will remain loyal UNIVERSITY PARK — Ever since tailback Bill Belton suffered a high ankle sprain in the third quarter of the opening game of the season, wide receiver Allen Robinson has been the Penn State offense’s only legitimate playmaker. He had nine catches against Ohio, a career-high 10 at Virginia and he added five more Saturday, to go along with career highs of 136 yards and three touchdowns, as Penn State sank Navy, 34-7, on Military Appreciation Day at Beaver Stadium. Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 201-pound sophomore from Southfield, Mich., was the offensive star of the game for Penn State for the third consecutive week, even though fifth-year senior

quarterback Matt McGloin tied his career-high with four touchdown passes. “It’s early, but he’s off to a great start,” wide receivers coach Stan Hixon said softly, when asked about Robinson. Robinson had touchdown receptions of 45, 2 and 25 yards. He owes a big assist to freshman receiver Trevor Williams on the final score after the ball bounced off Williams’ hands and into Robinson’s tummy in the end zone. He had another 45-yard reception that helped set up freshman tight end Jesse James’ first career touchdown, a 2-yarder, on the opening series of the game. Robinson leads the Nittany Lion re-

ceivers with 24 catches for 322 yards and four touchdowns. He is averaging 107.3 yards receiving per game and 13.4 yards per catch. “He’s a really good young receiver that works extremely hard and studies the game,” said Bill O’Brien, who secured his first victory as Penn State’s coach after two tough losses. “Always has a smile on his face and enjoys playing here. “He’s a fun guy to coach like a lot of these guys, and Allen’s had a very solid year to this point. But we all know he can get better, and that starts Monday.” Robinson’s impressive start has many worried that multiple major college programs will aggressively pursue him, which is understandable.

Remember, Robinson, like many of his Penn State teammates who are playing now, basically become free agents at the end of the season. As a result of the harsh NCAA sanctions, once the final regular-season game of 2012 is played, any player can transfer to another school without penalty and be eligible to play immediately, as long as they do so prior to the first preseason practice of 2013. While it may seem grossly unfair, that is the reality of the situation. “I don’t think we have to worry about that now,” McGloin told me after Saturday’s game. “We still have nine games left. There’s a lot of football to

The good, the bad and the ugly Ah, finally. The Penn State football team finally broke into the win column on Saturday afternoon with a 34-7 drubbing of Navy at Beaver Stadium. The Lions are now 1-2 as they prepare to close out the non-conference slate with Temple this week. Let’s take a closer look at the good, bad and ugly from Week 3: ■ The Good: Quarterback Matt McGloin had a fantastic afternoon, completing 13-of-21

passes for 231 yards and four touchdowns. He was not intercepted. McGloin is looking more and more comfortable running head coach Bill O’Brien’s offense. He’s making good use of his weapons, including up-and-coming star wideout Allen Robinson. ■ The Bad: We hate to pick on kicker Sam Ficken, but he missed another extra point. Missing a PAT is simply inexcusable at the collegiate level. O’Brien didn’t give Ficken a chance to redeem himself on any field goals,

which was probably by design. ■ The Ugly: There weren’t many negatives in the 27-point trouncing, but here’s one: The Lions were outgained by the Midshipmen, 391341. What that means is this: The Lions gave up a ton of yards, but the defense always stood tall in the end. However, Ted Roof’s defense will have to buckle down and get better, especially once conference play begins. — Chris Morelli

Musselman, from page 15 be played from now until the end of the season. “To be honest, Allen is very loyal to this program and very loyal to coach O’Brien. He loves playing here at Beaver Stadium. He’s a real team guy. I just can’t see him going anywhere.” Said O’Brien: “There’s nothing we can do about the NCAA. All we can do is play under the rules they say to play under. But this group of kids in that locker room right now are a high-character group of kids that have come together. It’s one win and hopefully we can build on it.” Robinson has greatly benefitted from the departures of receivers Devon Smith (Marshall) and Justin Brown (Oklahoma). A year ago as a freshman, Robinson managed just three catches for 29 yards. He appeared in 12 games, but was on the field for just 93 plays all season. On Saturday, he became the first Penn State receiver to produce three touchdown catches in a game since Graham Zug turned the trick against Michigan in 2009. Robinson, among six sophomore players who dub themselves as the “Supa Six,” has quickly become Mc-

Gloin’s go-to-guy now that Derek Moye has graduated. “He isn’t the fastest guy in the world, but his routes are so perfect, so on,” McGloin said of Robinson. “It makes him a hard guy to cover.” O’Brien said he’s not surprised by Robinson’s emergence in his pro-style offense. But, now that Shawney Kersey has been dismissed from the team, Alex Kenney is the only other receiver on the roster with at least five catches. “You’d like to spread it around a little bit more,” O’Brien said. “We had a bunch of guys with one or two catches, but (Allen’s) a guy that plays in a position in a formation that he can be singled up and that’s part of the read. “Allen knows that and Matt knows that, but it’s a part of the read. He’s done a really good job of catching the football and making some plays.” For now at least, Robinson insists he will remain in Happy Valley. “I definitely want to be with coach O’Brien at Penn State,” he said. “This is the place I want to be.” Even so, you can be sure other schools will try to snag Robinson once the season wraps up in November. He is, after all, quite a catch.

UNIVERSITY PARK — There is nothing fancy about Mike Zordich’s north-south running style. It’s pounding forward, again and again, over and over, and he used it once upon a time to rush for almost 1,000 yards his junior season at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. So with running backs Bill Belton (ankle) and Derek Day (shoulder) limited in practice for precautionary reasons, Penn State coach Bill O’Brien had to dig a little deeper into his running back depth to gameplan Navy. Outside of Curtis Dukes, options were slim, especially considering the staff’s desire to redshirt freshman Akeel Lynch. O’Brien scanned his personnel packages and determined he could better utilize Zordich, one of the pillars of the senior class that helped save Penn State football in 2012. Zordich carried 11 times for 50 yards, caught two passes for 25 yards and lined up outside in another formation. His hands, strength and agility allow O’Brien to be versatile in where he sets up his fullback.

PSU’s defense is evolving By NATE MINK StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State’s defense spent the first three weeks preparing for three completely different offenses and finished with a mixed bag of results. By and large, Ohio’s quick-strike spread attack was a nightmare. Virginia’s pro-style, multi-back, multi-tight end sets probably serve as the most accurate indicator of how good the defense is through three weeks. Navy’s run-based triple option didn’t have the size upfront to be effective. Temple walks into Beaver Stadium on Saturday with no proven passing game. The Owls have attempted 29 passes in two weeks, which includes Championship Subdivision Villanova, and average about 120 yards a game. Their game is by ground — an area Penn State has bottled up in recent weeks — and that bodes well for a defense which needs time more than anything. What is the state of the defense? Evolving. It’s still a young defense asking a lot of guys to play a number of snaps they are not accustomed to playing. Mistakes were made. Plays were missed. Third down had been dismal. But there’s also been eight takeaways the last two weeks. The secondary, still with plenty to prove in pass coverage, is playing physical and contributing to that high turnover margin. Depth is strong in some areas — linebacker and defensive line, surprise, surprise. “People say we have this experienced defense,” defensive coordinator Ted Roof said. “We have four starters coming back off the team that finished the season last year with an entirely new secondary, so we had a lot of inexperience. There is no excuse but that is a fact and there is only one way to get experience and that is to play. “And when you gain experience, you are going to make mistakes. And we have but we have not wallowed in selfpity, we have fought through them, and that is what I focus on, how do we respond to something like that? We have gotten better but certainly not arrived by any stretch of the imagination.”

AMOS CEMENTED AT CORNER? So far, prognostications of seeing Adrian Amos line up all over the defensive field have not come to fruition. During training camp, coach Bill O’Brien said to expect Amos to line up at cornerback, safety, maybe even as a spy linebacker. That doesn’t mean it won’t happen. It’s been three games, but Amos has been a cornerback each week.

Trophy Time Bellefonte beats Philipsburg-Osceola to capture title By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

BELLEFONTE — It’s early, and three games do not make a season. Those three games, however, are more than enough to notice the drastic improvements in the Bellefonte Area High School football team. After a surprising 42-7 rout of Philipsburg-Osceola on Friday night, the Red Raiders are now 2-1 and have already won more games than they did in all of 2011. They jumped all over two early thirdquarter fumbles by the Mounties, scored two quick touchdowns for a 35-7 lead, and then invoked the mercy rule with another score early in the fourth quarter that put the game away. Bellefonte scored on the ground and through the air. Led by NuNu Buey’s 101 yards on 14 carries, Bellefonte racked up 193 yards and four touchdowns rushing against the Mountie defense. Sophomore quarterback Phil Fenstermacker completed nine of 14 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, and senior Jordan Fye, making his first appearance after returning from an injury, added 34 yards on five of six completions and another touchdown. And the Raider defense, so porous last season that opponents were liable to score from anywhere at almost any time, held P-O to only a first-quarter touchdown. The Mounties did manage 250 yards of offense and 202 rushing yards, but Bellefonte time and again blunted P-O drives and kept the Mounties from creating any kind of momentum. Philipsburg did not convert a single third down (0-7), and Bellefonte forced three fumbles and allowed only 48 passing yards. “This is what we’ve been trying to preach to them,” Bellefonte coach Duffy Besch said, “and show them what they can do and the team that they can be. When they come out and play together and play as a unit, and we play 48 minutes of football and we finish all of our plays, and if we do that we are going to put ourselves in a position to win. “And tonight we were able to do that.” So what has changed about the Red Raiders? It’s not magic, of course, and a lot of the answers can be found with a quick look at the stat sheet from the P-O game: Turnovers: Philipsburg 3, Bellefonte 0. Bellefonte did not have a turnover in the game and in fact has had only one (an in-

PHILIPSBURG-OSCEOLA’S Nick Gray is gang-tackled by a host of Red Raiders during the Mounties’ 42-7 loss to Bellefonte on Friday night at Rogers Stadium. terception) in its last two games. Bellefonte won the field position battle against P-O because the Raiders did not make mistakes and hand the ball over to the Mounties deep in their own territory. They made Philipsburg earn everything it got. Bellefonte’s rushing offense also jumps off the page. Buey’s 101 yards and another 65 yards and two touchdowns by teammate Brian White spearheaded a 193yard, four touchdown night on the ground for the Raiders. The Bellefonte rushing game is explosive with the speed and elusiveness of Buey, but the Raiders were also effective inside and were able to produce on short-yardage situations (they were 4-7 on third down). “When you are playing P-O, obviously people are going to be watching us run the ball,” Besch said. “We’ve got two great running backs and we have guys that can come in.” When Bellefonte traveled to BEA for its opener, Fye was injured and Fenstermacker had to step in and start his first varsity game under difficult circumstances. Now, with three games as a starter, Fenstermacker looked like he has settled in very nicely under center. His 166 yards was his high for the season, and he showed a strong arm and a good touch. Fye returned for the first time this year, and his presence gives Belle-

fonte two capable quarterbacks. Throw in a career night for receiver Nick Leiter (8 catches, 129 yards, and a touchdown), and Bellefonte presented a balanced offense that P-O couldn’t stop. The Raiders had 10 first downs rushing and 10 first downs passing in the game, and their 393 yards of total offense was evenly split between the pass and run. “Now we’ve got guys that are able to give us that passing game,” Besch said, “and because we are able to have that balance, we are able to move the ball in different ways. We don’t have to be a running team. We don’t have to be a pure passing team. I think balance is going to be a key to every football game.” At this point then, Bellefonte’s report card has to be a good one, but Central Mountain, Tyrone and Clearfield loom in the future, all difficult opponents. “We take it one game at a time,” Besch said. “You have to play these games and finish what you’ve started. Now that we’ve finished this one, we can start preparing for the next one. We’ve got to take them one at a time because every week we have a new, daunting challenge.” And after this start for Bellefonte, the people surrounding this program are looking forward to those challenges with anticipation this season, rather than the uneasiness of the recent past.

BELLEFONTE — We’re not talking about Unitas to Berry or Montana to Rice — at least not yet. Nevertheless, Bellefonte sophomore quarterback Phil Fenstermacker and junior wide receiver Nick Leiter combined to light it up on Friday night in the Red Raiders’ 42-7 victory over Philipsburg-Osceola. Fenstermacker, making his third career start, completed nine of 14 passes in the game for 166 yards and a touchdown, and all night his favorite target was Leiter. The duo got started early, during the Raiders’ first drive. On the fifth play of the drive, a secondand-10 from the Bellefonte 36, Fenstermaker found Leiter streaking down the right sideline and arced a perfect pass that Leiter caught in stride and took all the way to the PO 18, a 48-yard gain. Four plays later, tailback Brian White took it in from the six, and Bellefonte had an early 7-0 lead. “We saw that they (P-O) were playing back,” Fenstermacker said, “and they checked up and I showed him (Leiter) a sign and he knew it, and he took off. It was just like at Bald Eagle. I lofted it, and, oh man, it was crazy.” Bald Eagle would counter with a drive of their own, an 11-play, 81-harder that culminated with a six-yard Nick Grey touchdown run. That proved to be the Mounties’ only score of the night, thanks to the Raider defense, while Fenstermacker, Leiter, and the rest of the Red Raider offense were just warming up. Fenstermacker and Leiter would hook up five more times in the game — completions of 5, 13,15, 6 and 17 yards. Each of those completions went for first downs that kept Raider drives alive, and each added to Leiter’s total of eight completions for 139 yards. His touchdown came on a six-yard pass from senior quarterback Jordan Fye. “Coming in we knew they were going to give us short passes,” Leiter said, “and we thought we would be able to get our quickhitters and be able to move the ball up and down the field balanced. “I was just watching the quarterback and if he got into trouble I would move into an open space and I knew they were going to give me a good ball. All I had to do was catch it and get upfield.” Bellefonte scored twice more in the second quarter to take a 22-7 lead at the half and then twice more in the third quarter after Philipsburg fumbles. When Leiter hauled in his TD pass, the score was 42-7, and the mercy rule was invoked. “I love this offense that we run,” Fenstermaker said. “When I was younger we ran all the power stuff like Philipsburg ran tonight, and I absolutely love the spread offense. With me, I have options everywhere. My teammates are what help me out a lot though.” And when asked about his favorite target, Fenstermacker was even more enthusiastic. “Chemistry is what it is,” he said. “Me and Leiter we’ll come out 15 minutes before practice. We’ll get out of school a come out here and start throwing fades and everything. “I was a grade below him (Leiter) and you know that they struggled last year. And they were looking at us coming up, and look what happened. We’re 2-1, so let’s keep it going here.” As far as what is coming up for the Raiders, both players are cautious but optimistic. “Like our coach said, we can’t look too far ahead,” Leiter said. “We’re just going to keep the momentum going. We’re going to keep going with what’s working and keep our balanced offense. Our defense has stepped up in the past two weeks, and they’ve given us a really good control of the game.” Fenstermacker echoed Leiter’s comments. “You have to be all in,” he said. “All in, just like it says in the locker room. We are looking ahead to Central Mountain, and that’s all we’re doing.” That game is on Friday night at Bellefonte, and the Wildcats have size and speed and will present many problems. This season, with the emergence of players like Fenstermacker and Leiter, Bellefonte will present many problems of its own.

BEA edges Penns Valley in thriller By JOHN DIXON sports@centrecountygazette.com

WINGATE — Penns Valley and Bald Eagle Area may have been playing for the Iron Bell Trophy Friday night at BEA’s Alumni Stadium but there was a lot more at stake than ringing a bell. The Eagles were playing in hopes of starting the season 3-0 for the first time since 1993 while the Rams were playing for pride and their first win of the season. And the way both teams played it was hard to tell who entered the game undefeated and who was winless. But after a slugfest that produced a thrilling 21-20 Bald Eagle Area win both teams came out winners on a cool Friday evening in Wingate. “I have to give coach (Martin) Tobias a lot of credit,” said BEA coach Jack Tobias. “Penns Valley played a heckuva ball game against us tonight. Obviously, we are happy with the outcome, but we aren’t happy with the way we performed. We had the ball on the ground way too many times, we had personal foul penalties and I keep talking to these guys about paying attention to details. I just told them after the game that we have to commit to each other as a team, we are going to do things right every day in practice because if we take care of little things, they will eventually add up to big things for us.” Despite starting the season 0-3, Penns Valley’s Tobias, always the optimist and never the pessimist, was not disappointed with his team’s effort but was not happy that another loss entered the right side of the won-loss ledger. “It was a good high school football game between two teams that really went at it,” Tobias said. “We had our chances, but we just didn’t come with the big play in several situations when we needed it.” BEA (3-0) was lead by senior running back Dion Barnard who amassed 193 yards on 27 carries while scoring a pair of touch-

downs. Junior Dakota Bartley added 45 yards on 11 carries while senior quarterback Cole Long completed 10-of-15 passes for 69 yards. The Eagles amassed a total offense of 374 yards in the contest. “I wouldn’t be able to have a game like this without my line,” Barnard said. “Caleb Day, the Cramer boys (Tanner and Levi), Hunter Hall and Hunter Clark. We call them the Creamenators. Without them in front of me, I wouldn’t be anything. I just tell them that if they block I will take care of the rest.” And he did with very positive results. The Rams received the opening kick and proceeded to run two plays before turning the ball over on a fumble that the Eagles’ Barnard recovered at the PV 37. Nine plays resulted in little being gained and BEA turned the ball over on downs at the PV 22. Penns Valley quarterback Cameron Tobias managed an 11-yard run for a first down at the PV 34 but two huge stops by the Eagles’ Bryan Greene and Austin Cowher forced a Rams’ punt. Five plays later, BEA turned the ball back to Penns Valley on a fumble recovery by Wyatt Sharp that ended the first period scoreless. But on the first play of the second quarter, PV fumbled and BEA’s Greene recovered. A 24-yard pass play, Long to Jordan Kobularcik, set up the first score for the Eagles. Bartley ran for five and a first-and-goal at the PV 6. Following a BEA penalty, Barnard tacked on nine and then bolted into the end zone for the score and a 7-0 lead after Tyler Schall booted the PAT. The Rams wasted little time in getting back into the fray, taking the ensuing kickoff and went on a 70-yard, 7-play drive, that was capped by quarterback Cameron Tobias’ 10-yard scramble for the score. The key play in the drive was a 31-yard completion, Tobias to Luke Weaver. The PAT attempt was blocked by Levi Cramer enabling the Eagles to hold a 7-6 lead.

Following the ensuing kickoff, BEA collected a first down before the Rams’ defense made a key play to stun the Eagles. After a 9-yard run by Barnard, BEA attempted a pitch on the fourth play of the drive but the play went awry and Luke Weaver scooped up the fumble and rambled 40 yards for the score and a Penns Valley lead. The PAT was blocked by the Eagles line but the Rams held a 12-7 lead. Stunned but not shocked, the Eagles took over on their own 30 and proceeded to march on a time consuming 70-yard, 13play drive. Barnard, who amassed 55 yards on the drive, capped the scoring with his second touchdown on a 3-yard run. Schall’s PAT was again good giving the Eagles a 14-12 lead with only 25 seconds on the clock left before halftime. “Offensively we were able to move the ball whenever we wanted to, but in key situations, we made mistakes that cost us,” Jack Tobias said. “We threw a pass for a touchdown and we had a lineman downfield. We are a good football team, but there are still a lot of little things that we have to clean up. I am not taking anything away from our kids because we are 3-0 and that is the first time that has happened here (at BEA) in 19 years. There were more fans here tonight than I have seen here for a long time and I told the kids that is going to keep growing, but they have to work hard and make the effort it takes to be good.” Despite a scoreless third period, BEA totally dominated the play mounting a 15play, 54-yard drive that amounted to using the clock but producing no points. The drive ended with an incomplete pass in the end zone. The Eagles ran 19 plays to the Rams four in the quarter. While BEA didn’t cap the long drive to end the third period, on the first play of the fourth period Bryan Greene managed to break three tackles en route to 59-yard touchdown. Schall’s PAT gave the BEA a 21-12 lead. The Rams’ didn’t quit and Ian Brown’s 54-yard kickoff return put the pigskin at the BEA-25. The Rams needed only five plays to find the end zone when Luke Weaver bulled his way for the score on a 2yard run. The key play in the drive was a

$

20-yard pass from Tobias to Brown that gave the Rams a first-and-goal at the BEA 6. Penns Valley went for the two-point PAT with Tobias connecting with Taylor Collison putting the Rams within 21-20 of BEA with 8:46 to play. The final 8:46 must have felt like an eternity for both coaching staffs as both teams had opportunities to take a commanding lead but neither could make that one key play that would end the suspense. BEA drove to the Penns Valley 14 but ended on a 1-yard loss on Brown’s stop of a pass play. Long to Barley. With 2:06 on the scoreboard clock, the Rams tossed 10 straight passes and had key completions from Tobias to Brown (15), Sam Koser (19), Brown (37 diving catch) to move the ball to the BEA 29. Tobias ran for 19 to a first-and-goal at the 10 but on the first play, the Rams were called for a holding penalty. Collison then ran for six off a pitch with 15 seconds to play and Tobias came up inches short with 10 seconds to play that ended with a fumble recovered by BEA’s Caleb Daye with one tick on the clock. With 31 seconds to play, Penns Valley had the option of attempting a field goal but wanted to punch the ball into the end zone. Good or bad idea, the Rams went all in. “The kids said, hey, we only need two yards so let’s go for it,” Martin Tobias said. “And the coaches said, let’s sell out. We need something to show that we believe in the kids, let’s give it a whirl and although we didn’t make it, we were fortunate to hold them on their next possession.”

IN SATURDAY’S GAME:

■ State College 33, Father Judge 23: Junior quarterback Patrick Irwin passed for three touchdowns as State College rallied to beat Father Judge 33-23 on Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia. The win pushed the Little Lions record to 3-0, while the Crusaders dropped to 1-2. Chris Theis ran for 85 yards and a touchdown and Ryan Goeke added 78 yards and a touchdown for State College, which will play host to Harrisburg in its annual homecoming game on Friday night.

State College faces Harrisburg in homecoming tilt By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH and CHRIS MORELLI sports@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — Unbeaten State College, 3-0 coming out of its pre-conference schedule, will host 2-1 Harrisburg on Friday night at Memorial Field in a matchup of MidState Conference heavyweights. State College owns double-digit wins over Liberty, Central Mountain and Father Judge. The Little Lions have featured a big-play offense and a stingy defense. They are averaging just under 32 points per game. Harrisburg lost its opener to powerful Bishop McDevitt, 21-20, beat Wilson, 21-13, in week two, and then crushed York, 38-14, last Friday after blowing out to a 31-point halftime lead. The Cougars have a balanced offense that features running backs Dominique Shuns and Darian Davis-Ray and quarterback Kyle Cook. Shuns rumbled for three touchdowns against York while Davis-Ray gained a game-high 96 yards on nine carries and scored a touchdown. Cook threw for 178 yards and two touchdowns on six completions out of 12 attempts. Cook also ran for 60 yards in the game. Defensively, Harrisburg is very tough against the run. York was only able to manage 5 yards rushing, and scored its 14 points mostly against replacements in the second half. “I think we have a really good set of running backs,” Harrisburg coach Calvin Evertt said. “They’re all young in terms of varsity experience and they all just need to find their niche. “And Kyle (Cook) is definitely making progress each week. He is young, too. He’s also learning on the go.” State College will answer with quarterback Pat Irwin, runners Ryan Goeke, Andrew Kelly, and Ebrahim Britton, and wide receivers Darian Herncane and Dan Fry. Goeke leads the State High rushers with 203 yards this season, Kelly has 123, and Britton 93. Irwin has thrown for 335 yards and four touchdowns, while Fry and Hernecane have 90 and 89 yards receiving respectively and a touchdown each. Irwin has also rushed for 98 yards and is a threat to take off anytime his protection breaks down. This looks to be a close game, and State College will have to be on its game to keep that unbeaten record intact. Kickoff at Memorial Field is set for 7 p.m.

CHESTNUT RIDGE (1-2) AT BALD EAGLE AREA (3-0) WINGATE — Bald Eagle Area remained unbeaten by stopping Penns Valley on the 1-inch line on the final play of the game Friday night to preserve a thrilling 21-20 win over the inspired Rams. Penns Valley came into that game 0-2 after two lopsided losses to Juniata and Clearfield. Now Chestnut Ridge, another team that appears to be struggling, comes to Wingate on Friday to test the Eagles and try to end their unbeaten streak. Chestnut Ridge (1-2), lost its first game of the season to

Central, 51-20, came back to beat Carrick, 35-12, the next week, and then Friday night lost to Berks Catholic, 47-0. The Lions are led by running backs Jocob Mock, Matt Wiley and Tyler Wiley. Beau Bosch is the quarterback, but Chestnut Ridge is primarily a running team and he averages only 35 yards a game passing. Bosch, Mock and the Wileys do find success, however, running the ball. Against Carrick, Chestnut Ridge ran for 358 yards on the ground, with Bosch getting 125 on 15 carries and Mock running for 100 on 12 carries. Matt and Tyler Wiley combined for 91 yards on nine carries. BEA is also primarily a running team, but the Eagles have featured more balance this season with the passing of Cole Long. Dion Barnard, Dakota Bartley, Bryan Greene, and Nate Sharkey handle the running duties for the Eagles who rushed for a total of 308 yards on 52 carries against the Rams. Barnard ran for 193 in that game on 27 carries and he now has 381 yards for the season on 43 carries. Bartley has added 139 this season, and Sharkey, who ran for 71 yards in the opener, has been injured. He did return against Penns Valley in a limited role. Greene ran for a 59-yard touchdown against PV. Long has completed 26 of 35 passes this season for 267 yards and three touchdowns, and he has added another dimension to the Eagle attack. BEA on paper should be considered a favorite in this game, but that was also true last week. Every game is a new challenge, and BEA will have to be wary of the Chestnut Ridge running game. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

CENTRAL MOUNTAIN (1-2) AT BELLEFONTE (2-1) BELLEFONTE — Bellefonte coach Duffy Besch knows exactly what he and his team are in for on Friday night against Central Mountain. “Every week we’ve got a new daunting challenge,” he said after last week’s decisive 42-7 win over Philipsburg. “Central Mountain, down the road, with Von Walker and those guys. It’s going to be that kind of game. “Last year, it was Von Walker left, Von Walker right, up and down the field. We’ve got to prepare for that.” Central Mountain is 1-2 this season. After a big opening night win over Williamsport, the Wildcats have lost consecutive games to State College and Mifflin County. And, yes, Von Walker is all over the field for Central Mountain. He has rushed for 346 yards on 51 attempts for the Wildcats, accounting for a large chunk of Central Mountain’s season total of 447 yards on the ground. He has also completed nine passes in 17 attempts for 58 yards and he has three pass receptions. Walker is not the only story for Central Mountain, however. Quarterback Travis Turchetta has completed 21 of 38 passes for 306 yards and three touchdowns. Tyler Pavalko and Cole Renninger also have 176 and 173 yards receiving respectively, so the Wildcats present a threat not only with the

GAZETTE STAFF PREDICTIONS THE CENTRE COUNTY

running of Walker, but with Turchetta and his receivers as well. Bellefonte is coming into this game on a high after the P-O win and with a winning 2-1 record. The Red Raiders feature the running of NuNu Buey — 89 yards against P-O and 338 for the season — and Brian White (36-212). Bellefonte also has the luxury of having two quarterbacks, Phil Fenstermacker, a sophomore, and senior Jordan Fye. Fenstermacker filled in for the injured Fye in the first three games, and he has been increasingly effective. He’s completed 21 of 47 passes for 330 yards and two touchdowns. Fye, who saw his first action on Friday, completed five of six for 35 yards and a touchdown. Nick Leiter emerged as a go-to receiver against P-O, catching eight passes for 129 yards and a touchdown and gives Bellefonte the kind of balanced attack that causes headaches for defenses. Central Mountain will come into this game ready to play after two straight losses. They are big and strong, and they will be a good indicator of exactly how far Bellefonte has come so far this season. Kickoff at Rogers Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m.

TYRONE (1-2) AT PHILIPSBURG-OSCEOLA (0-3) PHILIPSBURG — Things didn’t get any better for the Mounties last week. They traveled to Bellefonte with the hopes of getting their first win of the 2012 campaign. However, the Red Raiders ran roughshod over the Mounties to keep them winless. Things don’t get any easier for the Mounties this week, when Tyrone comes to Memorial Field. P-O’s passing game has really struggled. Quarterback Caleb Pepperday has completed just 10-of-39 passes for a little over 100 yards. He’s been intercepted three times. On the ground, the Mounties are led by running back Dustin Shuey, who has carried the ball 34 times for 216 yards — a little over 6 yards per crack. The Mounties are struggling on both sides of the ball. Offensively, they’ve scored just 14 points in three games. Defensively, they’ve allowed 125 points. Kickoff at P-O is scheduled for 7 p.m.

PENNS VALLEY (0-3) AT CENTRAL (2-1) MARTINSBURG — Things got much better for the Penns Valley Area High School football team last week. The Rams were within a score of upsetting unbeaten Bald Eagle Area, but fell 21-20 in a heartbreaking loss. However, that effort was a major improvement over the first two weeks of the season, which saw losses to Juniata (45-7) and Clearfield (47-0). Central is coming off a stinging 34-33 loss at the hands of Clearfield last week. In that game, the Scarlet Dragons had a chance late in the game, but couldn’t convert a fourth-down play and the ball went back to the undefeated Bison, who simply ran out the clock. Central is led by quarterback Austin Cunningham, who has completed 14 of 26 for 365 yards. He’s tossed four touchdowns, but has also been intercepted four times. On the ground, the Dragons have three players capable of breaking off big runs. Cunningham leads the way with 201 yards on 37 carries and five touchdowns. Bradi Moore is also capable, rushing 35 times for 181 yards and two scores. Austin Conrath has carried 16 times for 144 yards. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Getting their kicks Bellefonte girls’ soccer squad whitewashes Clearfield, 3-0 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

BELLEFONTE — The Bellefonte girls’ soccer team’s 3-0 victory over Clearfield last Thursday was a clear indicator of why the Lady Raiders are off to such a strong start this season. Bellefonte was relentless on offense, constantly threatening in Clearfield’s end, and fired 11 shots (six on goal) in the first half alone. Clearfield was mostly up to the challenge early, but freshman forward Megan Brooks broke through with a goal in the 38th minute off of an assist by Ashleigh Turner that gave Bellefonte a 1-0 lead at the half. It was more of the same in the second half. With the Raider defense holding Clearfield to just two shots on goal, Bellefonte put the game away with two quick goals. In the 63rd minute, Turner took a beautiful crossing pass from Kristin Buchanan and fired a bullet into the left side of the almost-open net. Then it was Buchanan’s turn six minutes later. She took a loose ball down the right side, juked past a defender, and beat the Clearfield goalie high in the right side of the goal for the decisive Raider goal. In all, Bellefonte launched 15 shots, 10 of which were on goal, and limited Clearfield to just one shot in the first half, three in the second, and only two on goal in the match. “We’re pretty ecstatic with a 3-0 win,” Bellefonte coach Stacey Miller said. “We knew coming into this game that this would be one of our toughest competitions in the Mountain League. So we knew we would have to give it 100 percent and bring our A-game tonight and put it on the field. “The girls have been working hard lead-

ing up to this. We suffered that loss (to Huntingdon) and since then we have been trying to improve on those things we had to improve on from that game and we did some of those things tonight.” Buchanan, a senior forward, has been a team leader for the Lady Raiders all season. With the goal and assist against Clearfield, she now has six goals and 17 points for the season. Against Clearfield she was a continual threat on the right side of the Raider offense, and beside her goal, she had six other shots in the game, five of which were on goal. “We have really improved as a team,” she said. “We’ve gotten a lot of freshmen this year. It’s new working with them because we have never played with them before, but we work really well together and it’s getting better every day.” Brooks is one of the freshmen Buchanan mentioned, and she has been a welcome addition to the Raider offense. She also has six goals for the season, and she has added another dimension that complements Buchanan and senior Devin Kos (five goals) on the Bellefonte front line. “I’ve been doing real well, being a freshman on varsity,” Brooks said. “I’ve scored six goals and our team is doing just great. “We have good players who can cross it in, and it is just to finish.” For the season so far, Bellefonte has scored 24 goals going into Saturday night’s game against Midd-West and has recorded 114 shots. The Raiders are scoring at a clip of four goals per game. Defensively, they have given up only nine goals on 50 shots, an average of only 1.5 goals per game on just over eight shots. “It has been a combination of improving and coming together as a team more,” Miller said. “We have quite the spread of players from freshmen to seniors, and it

The more games we play, we are getting more comfortable and becoming a more solid team.” As far as individual accomplishments and statistics, coach Miller would rather talk about the team because to her it takes all 11 to win games. “Our focus is the team, and being a team,” she said. “We know we have really strong individuals on the team, and I think we have 11 strong individuals out there on the field. That’s what makes us strong and that is what our focus is.

“I think we have a lot more weapons on our front line this year up top and I think that combined they play very well. We have a much stronger offense than we had last year, and we are doing a much better job of finishing.” Bellefonte advanced to the third round of the playoffs last season and ended up losing by a goal in overtime to Central Mountain in the rain. This season all indications are that when the playoffs roll around again, Bellefonte will be ready to make some noise in District 6.

Nittany Notes: Good weekend for the Lions By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — There was nothing but good news about Penn State sports coming out of University Park over the past weekend. Beside the big victory by the football team on Saturday over Navy at Beaver Stadium, both soccer teams were in action, the women’s volleyball team had three matches and the field hockey team played Lehigh and Monmouth. In all of that action, there wasn’t a loss in sight. The big news for the No. 11 women’s soccer team (6-2, 1-0) was the return of Maya Hayes and Taylor Schram from the FIFA Under-20 World Cup championship team that just finished play in Tokyo. The original plan was for Hayes and Schram to sit out most or all of the game against No. 13 Wisconsin on Sunday, but an injury forced Hayes into action, and she responded. The nation’s highest scorer last season,

Hayes scored a second-half goal from just to the left side of the box to give Penn State a 2-0 lead over the Badgers. Earlier in the first half, with just 56 seconds left before halftime, Raquel Rodriguez scored Penn State’s first goal, and then Hayes’ tally put Wisconsin into a deep hole. Lexi Petersen did manage to score a late goal for the Badgers, but the Nittany Lions held on for a 2-1 victory and their first Big Ten win of the season. The team is back on the field at Northwestern on Friday night and then at Illinois on Sunday afternoon. The women’s volleyball team, now 10-1 and ranked No. 4 in the country, faced off against Portland, Duquesne and Eastern Illinois in the Penn State Classic over the weekend. The Nittany Lions wasted little time dispatching all three teams in straight 3-0 victories. The team continues to be led by juniors Deja McClendon, Ariel Scott, and Katie Slay and sophomore Micha Hancock, Against Eastern Illinois in the final

match, which PSU won 25-14, 25-14, 25-16, Scott, Slay and McClendon all nailed nine kills, and Hancock handed out 36 assists and had three blocks. Slay was named the tournament MVP, and freshman Megan Courtney and sophomore Lacey Fuller were named to the all-tournament team. The No. 6 Penn State field hockey team defeated Lehigh and Monmouth by a combined score of 15-1 over the weekend. The Nittany Lions increased their record to 8-2 for the season, and they now have won five games in a row. Kelsey Amy scored two goals against Lehigh, and so did Hannah Allison, as the team roared out to a 5-0 halftime lead. Laura Gebhart, Whitney Reddig, Taylor Herold and Jenna Chrismer also scored for the Lions. Against Monmouth, Amy scored twice again — her 10th and 11th of the season — and she was helped by Chrismer, Herold, Allison, Ashtin Klinger and Brittany Crzwacz. Penn State will open up its Big Ten sea-

son this weekend with games against Indiana and Michigan at the field hockey complex. The men’s soccer team beat both Albany and Adelphi over the weekend as junior Mickey Minutillo returned to the field for the Lions. Penn State has now improved its record to 5-1-1 with the wins. Minutillo immediately made an impact as he assisted on Julian Cardona’s goal against Albany as the Nittany Lions held on for a 1-0 win. Penn State surrendered only one shot on goal in the game while getting six shots on goal on a total of 14 for the PSU offense. Against Adelphi, Minutillo and Cardona switched roles as Cordona assisted on Minutillo’s first-period goal that put Penn State ahead 1-0 in the 26th minute. Daniel Burnham also scored in the first half, and then Kelton Cheney put the game away with a second half goal in the 63rd minute. The team now travels to Wisconsin on Friday night to take on the Badgers at 8:30 p.m.

Centre Region crowns golf champions The majority of the Centre Region’s golf courses recently held their men’s and women’s club championship with four first-time champions and business as usual at several other country clubs. The Philipsburg and State College Elks Clubs contest their men’s final over 36 holes while the other clubs hold an 18-hole event, usually over the Labor Day weekend. As a side note on the Centre Region’s Club Championships, Philipsburg’s Doug Goss had the kind of year that if he were on the PGA Tour would have elevated him to all-star status. “Doug’s (Goss) performance this year was really an unbelievable year for him and one of the best we have ever seen at the Philipsburg Elks Country Club,” stated Philipsburg PGA professional Paul Fischer. “Doug won three of the four majors this year John Dixon writes a held at the Philipsburg course, our seweekly golf column nior’s championship (sixth in a row), and our invitational (with Jeff Lieb as a for The Centre partner).” County Gazette. He can be reached at The three majors that Goss won this jwd1@psu.edu. season include the Walter Swoope Invitational, the President’s Cup (partnered with Matt Johnson), men’s club championship and the PCC Invitational with Jeff Lieb as his playing partner. Goss also won the men’s seniors tournament for the sixth year in a row, and is undefeated in the event having won every year that he has been eligible. Goss defeated three-time champion Pat Brown in the finals while defending champion Jim Dixon, a seven-time champion, lost in the quarterfinals. Two of the area’s golf courses will determine their club champions within the next two weeks at Toftrees Resort and Golf Club and Skytop Mountain. ■ Centre Hills — Darren Johnston won his second club championships with his first win coming in 2009 while and Kim Austin won her first ladies championship. ■ State College Elks — Mike Braniff followed in his father’s footsteps by claiming his first club championship and became the third father-son duo to claim the title. Father Scott won his titles in 1996-97 and 1999. On the women’s side, Jeanie Andrews won her fourth title and first since 2004 snapping Ginny Hosterman’s three-year reign. Interestingly, Braniff and Andrews will be the last club champions for the Elks Country Club since the golf club has officially changed its name to Mountain View Golf Course. “After a terribly wet golf season last year, and economy keeping people from using our bar and restaurant facilities, we (as well as our bank) realized that our ability to pay our mortgage was declining fast,” explained Elks Club secretary and past exalted ruler George Olson. “We sold the property to BRYMAC (State College Ramada). “We, as Elks are still there with the downstairs room (about 1700 square feet), which BRYMAC has given us rent-free for a minimum of 15 years,” continued Olson. “As State College Elks, we also receive a 10 percent discount on food and golf in the club as well as the Ramada. The Ramada organization has renamed the club, the Mountain View Country Club. Ramada will also add to the signage ‘Home of B.P.O.E. 1600’ in the future.” ■ Nittany — Scott Gray won his initial title defeating 2008 champ Bill Luther Jr. in the finals. On the ladies’ side, it was business as usual with Barb Roberts claiming her 10th crown after a one-year absence at the top. ■ Penn State — In the men’s championship, Nick Plate posted his first championship title while Rose Rath took home the women’s crown for the sixth time and second in a row. Rath won her first title in 1992. ■ Philipsburg Elks — The women’s champion, Jody Czap, captured her 15th title and seventh straight by defeating two-time runner up Jenn Johnston. Tracy Branthoover finished third. ■ Standing Stone — Jason Boyer stopped first-time finalist Jeff Clemmer 5-up to win his first club championship at the Huntingdon County golf course. On the ladies’ side, 19-year-old Ashley Carson defeated four-time champion Sue Price 1 up for her first club title.

AROUND THE LINKS ... PARENT/CHILD TOURNAMENT The Philipsburg Elks Country Club recently held its annual Parent/Child event with team of Bo Sankey and Trevin Hampton winning the Open Division, shooting a best-ball 73. Winners in the Adult/Child category Bob and April Adams carded a round of 71 for the win. Two teams tied for second with a round of 75 in Cheryl Anderson and Chris Fox and Drew and Katie Tocimak. In the Parent-Child under-18 bracket, Andrew and Andrew Reifer claimed first place with a best-ball 71. Shooting 73s for second place tie were the teams of Jason and Abby Vaux and Al and Jarrod Anderson.

BIRDIES-STRIKES-BOGEYS-SPLITS TOURNEY The Philipsburg Elks Country Club also conducted its annual birdies-strikes-bogeys-splits tourney event recently with a three-way tie for first shooting a round of 70 in the teams John Prisk and Chris Dobson, Bob Hummel and Craig Livergood and Giles Lanager and John DeCarli. The overall event was sponsored by Philipsburg Country Club, PGA golf professional Paul C. Fischer and the Moshannon Valley Super Bowl. The event birdies, strikes and bogey’s splits is a morning of bowling and an afternoon of golf. Players win prizes in the bowling and golf, then depending on how you place in each sport, the players are awarded points and an overall champ is crowned based on total points. Fischer took up bowling a couple of years ago and really liked the sport. Since he was the PGA golf professional at the Philipsburg Elks Country Club and the bowling facility just up the road from the golf course, the idea made sense to combine the two sports. To say the least it is a unique idea and obviously a very popular one in the Philipsburg area. Remembering the name of the event, birdies-strikesbogeys-splits, so the higher the score the better your team finish. In the overall event, the team John Prisk and Chris Dobson claimed the win shooting a two-man score of 185. The duo of Bob Hummel and Craig Livergood placed second with a 180 while placing third with a 175 was the team of Larry Batterson and B.J. Batterson. Winning the bowling series part of the event with an aggregate score of 726 was the Batterson’s team. Hummel and Livergood were second with a score of 721 while Prisk and Dobson placed third with a 685.

The Glass Eye: The NFL after two weeks Typically, this is the time when I begin my NHL previews â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but that will obviously be on hold for awhile with the lockout. So instead, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look around the NFL after two weeks and see what trends have developed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a more in-depth analysis of baseball, and particularly the Piratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grotesque collapse, in a later column. Fans, analysts, and even some coaches tend to overreact to the first week of the NFL season. Depending on whom you listened to, after the opening week the Super Bowl was already set to be Dallas vs. Denver â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or was that the 49ers vs. Baltimore? The Steelers were going to go 6-10, and lost in Week Two to the suddenly powerful Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense. The list goes on ... the folks Dave Glass is a at FootballOutsiders. columnist for The com like to call that Centre County phenomenon â&#x20AC;&#x153;NationGazette. Email al Jump to ConcluDave at buggyracer@verizon.net. sions Week,â&#x20AC;? and I wholeheartedly agree â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one week is just not enough data to determine whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really happening yet. As a Steeler fan I saw some things that concerned me in Week 1, especially on defense, but I wanted to see more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from all NFL teams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before making any snap

judgments. So what did I learn in Week 2? â&#x2013;  Peyton still has some rust. The three INTs he threw in the first quarter Monday were all very poor decisions, and were very un-Manning-like. Atlanta threw a ton of different looks at Manning and he reacted very poorly early on, and the Broncos never recovered. Now, Atlanta is a very good team and this loss does not mean Peyton is washed up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it did show me that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not quite back to the level some had expected. Between Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comeback and the Chargersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dominant 2-0 start, the AFC West should be a great race all season. â&#x2013;  The Saints are in trouble. I was very skeptical of people who this summer believed that the Saints would be as good or better than ever after all the off-season turmoil. With their coach and GM gone for the season and the interim head coach suspended for six weeks, it stood to reason that they would not be a sharp â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after all, NFL coaches typically work 12-14 hour days all season to prepare their teams. If coaching really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter, why put all that time in? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear now that coaching does matter and that the turmoil has really set the Saints back. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much talent there for the team to be truly awful, but the schedule gets considerably tougher over the next two months and the Saints are now in a must-win situation against Kansas City this week. I can easily see the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record being 4-7 after Thanksgiving. â&#x2013;  I expected the AFC South to be bad â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and aside from Houston, it is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but the Texans might be a lot better than I thought.

They have allowed only 17 points through two games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; granted against two poor offenses. With the Broncos, Packers, Ravens and Jets coming up over the next five weeks, we will find out just how good the Texans really are. â&#x2013;  When the Patriots-Ravens game is over Sunday night, one of those teams will be 1-2. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that was not something anyone predicted in the summer. The Patsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense looks much improved, but the offense was terrible this week and appears to be in flux. The Ravens have looked good on offense, but their oncefeared defense appears to be in decline. That should be a great matchup. The NFC East remains an enigma â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dallas looked superb in handling the Giants on Opening Night, but then laid a complete egg in Seattle. The defending champion Giants needed 510 passing yards to get by Tampa and avoid an 0-2 start â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and yes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not at all sold on the Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense. Washington blew a golden opportunity to start 2-0 when they lost their composure in St. Louis, and they already are wracked with defensive injuries. That leaves the Eagles, who have committed nine turnovers and managed to win both games. The Eagles never seem to take the easy path, but the wins are in the bank, you have to believe they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t average four turnovers per game, and I still believe they are the class of the division. â&#x2013;  Overall, I think the balance of power has shifted back to the NFC. New England has looked fairly mortal so far, Houston is

Long drives help Steelers control tempo against Jets PITTSBURGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; At least when looking at the offense, the Pittsburgh Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 27-10 win over the New York Jets on Sunday wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remind fans of the halcyon days of Steelers football â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the stereotypical smashmouth brand of offense featuring a steady running attack and a passing game that only exists when wanted, not needed. At the same time, the 36 minutes and 36 seconds of possession charted by Pittsburgh should be enough to put a smile on the face of fans still clinging onto their Jerome Bettis jerseys. The fourth-quarter scoring drive that melted 10:13 off the clock and ended with Isaac Redmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-yard plunge not only helped to bury the Jetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hopes of a comeback, it served to show that the team can control the ball by combining the run and the pass. Most importantly, the 14-play drive resulted in points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is always important for us to get points especially to end the game to put that nail and drive it in,â&#x20AC;?

Rocky Bleier but against the Jets, having Roethlisberger pass for 275 yards while escaping numerous potential sacks only to complete passes to extend drives served to demoralize New York just as well as pounding the ball did under the watches of Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you play a Rex Ryan-led defense they pride themselves in getting after the run and they commit bodies to the run,â&#x20AC;? Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re committed to moving the football and possessing the football and sometimes that means taking what they give you.â&#x20AC;? Roethlisbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to extend plays was epitomized on a third-and-16 in the third quarter when Roethlisberger stepped up in the pocket to avoid a rushing David Harris before lofting an end-zone pass to speedster Mike Wallace, who used his vertical jump and a bit of fancy footwork along the to extend the Pittsburgh lead to 20-10. Despite being a primary contributor to the touchdown, Roethlisbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first viewing of the highlight play wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it,â&#x20AC;? Roethlisberger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is one of those plays that I had to come to the sideline and ask the coaches, Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich, what they thought and what did they see. All I could see was the signal touchdown as I was coming off the field.â&#x20AC;? That score was only one of eight third downs converted by Pittsburgh against a Jets defense playing without allworld cornerback Darelle Revis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no excuse,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys got to step up. We just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it done. I think when you look at it, it was more to do with Pittsburgh and the way Ben was able to extend plays like he does. (They) made some huge conversions on third down against us when we got a chance to get off the field.â&#x20AC;?

unproven, and the Chargers need to shop that 2-0 isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a fluke. Meanwhile, the NFC has seen the 49ers look overwhelmingly dominant in starting 2-0, the Packers are still plenty tough, the Eagles are 2-0 despite those turnovers (which shows either their carelessness, their talent, or both), and the Seahawks appear to be the next NFC team on the rise. â&#x2013;  Finally, the rumors of the Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; demise, as usual, were greatly exaggerated. Yes, the defense looked old and slow in Denver â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and not forcing a single punt or turnover in the second half was definitely a bad sign. On the other hand, Roethlisberger had a very good game against the Broncos, I liked the commitment to ball control via the run, and I felt that some of the defensive issues were correctable. This week against the Jets the defense started out looking very much like they did in Week 1, allowing another 80-yard drive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but from there, the defense really clamped down. Big Ben had a very good day, the running backs wore down the Jets in the second half, and the Steelers cruised to victory. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they are as good as they looked last week nor as bad as they looked in Denver â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but I also think that this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road trip to Oakland will answer a lot of questions. Oakland is not a good team, but they do have some explosive skill players, and Steelers have traditionally struggled in Oakland. If Pittsburgh can put up another strong defensive showing, then I think we can consider week 1 something of an aberration.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT View ‘From Up Here’ takes modern perspective By HARRY ZIMBLER For The Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — When the New York Times reviewed the play “From Up Here,” by Liz Flahive, the headline captured the very essence of the piece: “Have a Nice Day at School, Sweetie. Don’t Kill Anyone.” “From Up Here,” which begins its previews on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at the Downtown Theatre Center on Allen Street, is billed as an “uproarious and uplifting contemporary comedy.” The show will run through Oct. 5. The Barrett family is struggling with the fact that son Kenny has threatened violence on his entire high school. In these days of uncertainty in schools, this is a timely drama. Director Rob Schneider, member of the Penn State School of Theatre faculty, is looking to capture both the humor and the dramatic tension in the script. “This is the story of a family whose son has published his ‘enemies list,’” said Schneider. “He is expelled and now has to apologize to the entire school. This is about a family accepting imperfection. It has a real contemporary, modern vibe. The play is a cross between ‘Modern Family,’ and the movie ‘Juno.’” Schneider feels the play is a dark comedy with a cast of 10 performers. While it was produced Off-Broadway, the play fell

off the radar in 2008. Now the nation is dealing with the issues of bullying and school violence and that has made this play relevant once again. “The play has developed a production life of its own,” Schneider noted. Selected for production by former faculty member Mark Olson, Schneider took over when Olson accepted a position at New York’s Julliard School. “Mark wanted to direct it. He cast it and designed it. When I read it, I liked it enough to pick it up where he left off,” said Schneider. “The project sort of fell into my lap.” Schneider hopes that audiences will leave the theatre with an appreciation for what they have in their own families. “You want everyone to be perfect. But maybe it’s better to have someone who is imperfect,” he explained. The fact that the play is written by a woman is of interest to Schneider. “We really don’t do a lot of plays written by female playwrights,” said Schneider. In fact, the School of Theatre production is being supported, in part, by a grant from the National Theatre Conference. It is part of a national initiative to celebrate America’s women playwrights. The NTC, founded in 1925, is a cooperative association of distinguished leaders of the American Theater, university, community and professional. Membership in the conference is by invitation only.

Local artists release CD From Gazette staff reports A collection of local artists, Main Street Exit, is releasing a three-song EP of popular Christian worship songs. The CD will be available in early November. Main Street Exit is using the popular website, KickStarter.com, for pre-ordering the CD. “KickStarter is an up and coming way for independent artists to help fund their creative projects,” said Wayne Way, organizer of Main Street Exit. This is the first studio recording effort

from a collection of seasoned musicians from central Pennsylvania. Main Street Exit features soaring vocals, sweet harmonies and modern rock instruments. The collection of musicians originated out of Lifetree Church in Jersey Shore and many still serve on the music team. Others are part of worship throughout central Pennsylvania. The first recording consists of three powerful worship songs, “Our God Saves,” made popular by Paul Baloche.

Penn State Small Business Development Center is a resource for business success UNIVERSITY PARK — Many people dream of owning their own business. The Penn State Small Business Development Center has been helping entrepreneurs to make that dream a reality for 15 years. Established in 1997, the Penn State SBDC offers low cost business seminars and free one-on-one consulting to prospective and established business owners. The seminar topics include starting a business, writing a business plan, cash flow, taxes, bookkeeping, marketing and social media strategies. “Over the years we have worked with nearly 2000 different businesses,” said Linda Feltman, senior business consultant and SBDC seminar instructor. “We have helped just under 300 new businesses start and assisted 50 people in purchasing an existing business.” “Entrepreneurs tend to believe they know it all and can do it all,” she said. “They need to learn how to reach out and get help.” In one on one counseling sessions with aspiring and established business owners, Feltman draws from her own experience with starting and running small businesses, and also from what she’s learned from those she has counseled. She said the SBDC will not offer an opinion on whether a business idea is likely to succeed, but will assess the business plan to identify problems and recommend solutions. This year, Pennsylvania’s eighteen Small Business Development Centers are offering their introductory seminar, The First Step of Starting a Business, at no cost. This was made possible by spe-

Feltman emphasized the importance of writing a detailed, well thought out business plan and explained what to include. She said the business owner should write their own business plan, and use the plan to guide the business. Seminar attendees received a booklet that included the information covered in class, and useful resources such as a business start-up checklist, a sample business plan outline, and helpful websites. The Sept. 10 seminar was sponsored by SPE Federal Credit Union. Michael Scott, SPE’s small business lender, attended the seminar and offered his perspective on funding small businesses. He discussed what lenders look for in business plans and credit scores. Feltman and Scott recommended working with local or regional companies for insurance and banking. Scott said: “Small local banks and credit unions are more interested in your business.” For more information about SBDC seminars and business consulting, visit sbdc.psu.edu, or call (814) 863-4293. The SBDC will hold their 15th anniversary celebration lunch at the Penn Stater from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 5.
