Judge rules that statute of limitations has not expired for alleged Sandusky victim By ZACH BERGER

BELLEFONTE — It is now up to the attorney general’s office to determine whether or not additional charges should be filed against Jerry Sandusky. Anthony Spinelli, an alleged Sandusky victim who claims to have been sexually abused at a 1988 football camp, is asking the attorney general to charge the former Penn State football coach with involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, sexual assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors. His criminal complaint was initially denied by the attorney general’s office, which argued that the statute of limitations had expired, but Spinelli’s attorneys thought otherwise. And, apparently, so did Centre County Judge Thomas Kistler, who ruled on Oct. 28 that the complicated statute of limitations situation still allows for charges to be filed against Sandusky in this case. The statute of limitations has been extended and amended for sexual abuse victims multiple times since the alleged offense in 1988. As long as the previous statute had not yet expired, any updated statute can be applied retroactively. The attorney general’s office thought that Spinelli’s interpretation “stacked” the public employee exception — which adds eight years to the statute of limitations if the alleged abuser is a public employee — essentially applying it twice. Kistler disagreed, ruling that the exception can be applied multiple times as the amendments and changes are retraced, as long as it is not applied more than once to the same statute. “The exception period, although applied twice, was never applied twice under the same applicable statute of limitations,” Kistler wrote. “This court finds that the application of the employee exception to the second amended statute of limitations is not prohibited by the statute as written.” After retroactively applying the mul-

In other words, the previous statutes never expired before the new ones became effective, allowing them to apply to Spinelli. “We are very pleased with President Judge Kistler’s decision,” said Daniel Kiss, Spinelli’s attorney. “We think it was the right decision and it gives Anthony an opportunity for justice. We are hopeful that the attorney general’s office will fight for justice for Anthony going forward as hard as he fought for himself to get to where the case stands.” The criminal complaint is back in the hands of the attorney general’s office, which now needs to determine whether or not to file charges based on the merits of the complaint itself, not the statute of limitations. Sandusky was in court on Oct. 29 in Bellefonte for an unrelated court hearing at the Centre County Courthouse.

STATE COLLEGE — With the help of the FBI, local police launched an investigation last month to track down the perpetrator of seven bomb threats called into the North Atherton Street Walmart. Not only did the investigation lead outside of Pennsylvania, but it went across the border into Canada, where the FBI determined the calls were originating from. Andrew Wells-Scott, 20, of Ontario, was arrested and charged with four counts of conveying a false message in his home country after a joint investigation that included Patton Township Police, the FBI and Ontario Provincial police, according to a press release. “The calls were received at the Walmart between September 24 and October 23, 2015,” the release from Patton Township

police said. “As a result, the store was evacuated numerous times, causing serious public inconvenience and terror. A significant amount of manpower was used during each of the phoned-in threats.” Police and fire responders were dispatched to the superstore for the threats, lining the parking lot to keep it blocked off and scouring the store with K-9 unit dogs from Penn State University. The Walmart was closed for more than an hour on multiple occasions due to the threats. “The Patton Township Police Department worked tirelessly with law enforcement partners to resolve this case,” chief John Petrick said. “(We) take incidents of this nature very seriously and will use available resources to investigate.” Wells-Scott had a bail hearing Nov. 2 in the Peterborough Provincial Court, although it was not clear through searching court records if he was released.

PENN STATE’S College Democrats stood in the HUB-Robeson Center on Election Day encouraging registered student-voters to stop by the polls. Election, from page 1 commissioners when incumbent Michael Pipe and newcomer Mark Higgins received 27 percent and 23 percent of the vote. Republican Steven Dershem, who has served three terms on the board, will fill the third seat after receiving more votes than incumbent commissioner Republican Chris Exarchos and independent candidate Todd Kirsten. “It’s good to see folks start to respond to your message and the people who are undecided for months of the campaign start to tune in and appreciate what we are trying to do,” said Pipe of his campaign. “It’s been fun. It’s been late nights, but it is certainly worth it.” Republican candidates were more successful in other contested county races including register of wills, recorder of deeds and county sheriff. Republican candidate Bryan Sampsel defeated Democratic candidate Matthew Rickard for county sheriff by 3,233 votes. Joseph Davidson, a Republican, won the recorder of deeds job, receiving about 55 percent of the vote against his Democratic challenger, Georgiann Bennett. Republican candidate Christine Millinder will continue serving as the county’s register of wills after edging out her Amanda McCartney, who trailed behind by 4,189 votes.

Looking at the race for State College Borough council, there’s no surprise that council will retain a Democrat majority. Four out of the five candidates running for the four open seats are Democrats. David Brown, Jesse Barlow and current board member Cathy Dauler took the first three seats and will fill three of the vacancies left by council president James Rosenberger, Peter Morris and Sarah Klinetob. The lone Republican, Ron Madrid, was last in the voting, finishing behind fourth-place Janet Engeman. The four elected candidates will join current board members Evan Myers, Thomas Daubert and Theresa Lafer. Results in Bellefonte’s borough council race were similar, with Democrats seizing a majority of votes. In the race for the Ward 1 open seat on Bellefonte Borough council, Democrat candidate Douglas Johnson won by a small margin, with almost 52 percent of the vote over Republican candidate Brian Walker. Democrat candidate Joanna TostiVassey crawled ahead of her Republican opponent by 6 percent, or 29 votes, taking the open seat in Ward 3 of borough council. Democrat incumbent Karen Harvey and Republican incumbent Renee Brown will take the two open seats in Ward 2. The results of all this year’s elections are available on the Centre County Election Office’s website.

Voter turnout at about 27 percent for election By ALEXA LEWIS

BELLEFONTE — One prediction people made during this election was that voter turnout would not be all that great — but three open seats in the state’s Supreme Court brought more attention to this election than previous municipal elections. Voters in the 2015 municipal elections determined who would fill a total of five open seats on three of Pennsylvania’s appellate courts: three open 10-year-term seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and one open seat on both the Pennsylvania Superior Court and Commonwealth Court. That is the most seats open on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court since the days of William Penn, said Michael Pipe, who was re-elected to the Centre County board of commissioners during this election. Despite the county having about the same number of registered voters as in the past, nearly 10,000 more voters showed up at the polls this year than the last municipal general election held in 2013. In the 2011 municipal general election, voter turnout was about 22 percent. This year, it was closer to 27 percent — higher than it’s been for any other municipal general election since 2007. Local resident John Harris, who was canvassing for State College Borough council candidates Cathy Dauler and Janet Engeman on Election Day, said the Supreme Court election was less of a bipartisan race than many people realize. The Supreme Court, Harris said, reviews and approves legislative reapportionment, which gives the party with a majority in the court an advantage in redrawing boundaries after the 2020 census.

BELLEFONTE AREA High School seniors Taylor Mauk, left, and Kyler Phillps volunteer at the polls in the HUB-Robeson Center at Penn State. Juniors and seniors at the high school volunteer at precincts throughout the county every election. “The way the districts are drawn influences the way the election turns out because it influences the number of Democrats versus Republicans in each district,” Harris said. “And it will influence both the congressional elec-

tions and the state Legislature elections.” Nonetheless, most eligible individuals and registered voters for that matter did not make it out to the polls at all, which was not much of a surprise for a municipal election. Out of 107,254 registered voters, 29,191 cast ballots in the municipal election on Nov. 3. The gubernatorial elections held in 2014, where Pennsylvania voters elected Tom Wolf as governor, brought out about 37 percent of registered voters in Centre County compared to the 27 percent that came out for this municipal election. Turnout for the 2012 presidential election was even higher than the gubernatorial election, with 62 percent of voters casting ballots.

State College tackles suicide and mental health throughout November

Tailgate, from page 1 bring cancer support to area communities. As a State College native, Penn State alumnus and founding member of the local chapter of Coaches vs. Cancer, Perks was devoted to helping cancer patients in Centre County and the surrounding areas. This devotion never faltered, even throughout his own battle with cancer. After Perks lost his fight with the disease in 2005, his wife, Doreen Perks, established the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund as a way to help fulfill her late husband’s wishes. The nonprofit provides financial support for basic necessities to local individuals and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis. To help raise funds for the organization, Perks said she wanted to hold an event that was unique and fun and reflected Bob and his passion for Penn State football. After a friend brought up hosting an away-game tailgate fundraiser, Perks knew she had something special. As usual, those attending will get to feast on a variety of tailgate fare. There will also be a large selection of beer, wine and other beverages. “It’s always top-notch,” Keller said.


Turnout, from page 4 Tip O’Neill’s 1935 campaign slogan “All politics is local,” Harris added, “Politics tends to be local; you have much more influence over the local candidates than you do over the state and federal ones. You can go into the office of any of these people that you are voting for today and talk to them face to face and they will listen to you.” But despite Harris’ and others’ efforts to bring voters out to the polls, the pace still felt slow at many of the 91 precincts in Centre County. At about 2 p.m., Precinct 34 and Precinct 29 had a total of 61 voters, which was mostly made up of about three times as many residents as students, despite the large number of students registered with those precincts. “Some people don’t think local elections are important, but city council is very important,” said Jennifer Koskey, who has volunteered at Precinct 34 in State College

for two years. At Precinct 28, located in St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 25 people had casted ballots by about 4 p.m., four hours before polls closed. Donna Brooks, a volunteer at this precinct, said turnout is never high for a municipal election but still more than she anticipated. She said she was still expecting a rush after dark. By about 4 p.m., 85 students living on campus had casted ballots for the local election. “This election is going to decide the future of the local community. It’s going to be the future of the county, future of our Supreme Court here in Pennsylvania and there are a lot of big issues in terms of redistricting, how we solve and work on the issues of mental health reform and criminal justice reform,” Pipe said. “Local elections matter. Local elections affect your day-to-day life.”

STATE COLLEGE — One of State College’s most prolific and active nonprofits, the Jana Marie Foundation, will be keeping busy this November with four events to help tackle suicide, mental health and social media issues. On Thursday, Nov. 5, the foundation will continue its creation of “Stompers,” the latest in a series of community-constructed sculptures. The open drop-in session will welcome all community members who have been touched by suicide in any way. Those who attend will paint recycled sneakers with messages of hope and inspiration, and those sneakers will be made into a lifesized “Stompers” sculpture. The event will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bellefonte YMCA. “Doing this will give people the chance to remember those who they have lost and provide hope and inspiration to those in need,” foundation president Marisa Vicere-Brown said. “We want to remind people that they are not alone.” On Friday, Nov. 13, and Saturday, Nov. 14, the foundation will present “She’s Crazy (Mental Health and Other Myths)” at the State Theatre. The two-woman show is a cabaret-style production that brings light to mental and emotional health issues, as well as common misconceptions about them. The play will be presented in a creative way, with a mix of drama, comedy and audience participation. There will be showings at 7:30 p.m. on both days, as well as a matinee at 2 p.m. Nov. 14. Finishing off the month, the foundation will present its latest “Straight Talk” on sexting and social media on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Hosted at the Mount Nittany Middle School at 7 p.m., the free conversation will go over information and statistics that parents should be aware of for their children’s Internet and social media safety. The talk will provide parents with tips on how to prepare and protect their children as the Internet and social media become an important part of their lives. Throughout the month, the Jana Marie Foundation will also introduce its new evidence-based program Youth Mental Health First Aid. The program is designed for adults to learn about how they can de-

The foundation’s mission is to empower young people, especially young women, to make positive choices, practice self-respect and maintain healthy relationships by providing opportunities of personal growth and creative expression.

THON cancels upcoming canning weekend UNIVERSITY PARK — The THON canning weekend scheduled for Friday, Nov. 13, through Sunday, Nov. 15, has been canceled, the THON student organization announced. In lieu of the fundraising event, THON will continue to undergo an evaluation of canning and additional safety precautions for student volunteers. In a “Letter to the THON Community,” THON 2016 executive director Katie Mailey said that further assessment of all aspects of canning needs to be completed and more time is needed to implement protocol changes. The announcement comes after a Penn State student died in a car accident on Sept. 27 while returning from a trip to solicit donations for THON and the Oct. 23 canning weekend was suspended for an initial safety protocol review. “Canning itself is a multifaceted fundraising practice that has long been part of THON’s culture and tradition,” Mailey said. “Not only does it raise awareness of THON’s mission, but it also provides a direct way for student volunteers to engage in fundraising for the fight against childhood cancer. Our goal in this decision is not to remove canning from THON’s fundraising model forever. We are striving to improve the safety and culture of fundraising with the help of university and state authorities.” The decision to cancel the canning



weekend is effective for all campuses, whether or not students require travel for canister solicitation. It will not be rescheduled. “The decision reached by THON’s leadership is the result of thoughtful consideration and discussion over a period of weeks,” said vice president for student affairs Damon Sims who, along with senior vice president for development and alumni relations Rod Kirsch, is the primary liaison to THON. “It takes true leadership to resist impulsive decisions that are urged by others, and it requires courage to take a position you know will be unpopular with many. I could not be more pleased by the courage and leadership displayed by these students, and I know the university will do all it can to support THON as it continues to wrestle with the many issues that canning brings.” The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, referred to as THON, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Several weekends a year are designated as “canning” weekends, where students solicit donations in communities across the region. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $127 million for families of pediatric cancer patients and research toward finding a cure. Over the past few years, THON has implemented a number of policies and

In 2009, it felt like it was time. “By May of that year, we opened registration. We had 120 women attend the first event.” The EWE event is focused on changing the business dynamic that many women experience. “I break up groups and cliques,” she said. “I want to get

attendees to meet new people. I enjoy challenges. I am detailed oriented. We live in a small community. If we work together we can accomplish a lot more than we would otherwise. Women in business need a little help in figuring out what to do next.” Dolan said she relishes the idea that she can support other women in business. This year’s EWE event welcomed 152 business women and 40 young women from high school and college whose participation was underwritten by a grant from U.S. Rep. GT Thomp-

For more information on THON, including how to donate online, visit www. son, R-Howard. “I want to show young girls that they can go for it. I help them find mentors. It is really rewarding,” Dolan noted. Her greatest challenges come in striking a balance between work and leisure, and dealing with gender roles and expectations. “There is still a difference between men and women in business. Women still have to prove themselves a tiny bit more than men. We have to be able to juggle all that you must do to run a successful business.”

Judge in Sandusky case seeks info on grand jury leaks By ZACH BERGER

BELLEFONTE — It was a short court hearing that mostly involved complicated legal arguments over discovery requests, but Judge John Cleland broke the monotony with a surprising court order directed at the attorney general. In response to a press release from Attorney General Kathleen Kane last week, in which she accused Judge Barry Feudale of purposefully leaking sealed documents, Cleland ordered Kane to disclose under seal any evidence that Feudale leaked documents related to Jerry Sandusky. Feudale is the judge who presided over the state investigative grand jury that prompted Sandusky’s child sexual abuse charges. “The attorney general is directed to disclose to counsel for the defendant and to the court, under seal, any information of which she is aware to support her conclusion, as contained in her publicly issued statement ... that Judge Feudale and/or prosecutors of the Office of the Attorney General in any way orchestrated, facilitat-

ed, cooperated in, or arranged for disclosure of otherwise secret grand jury material in this case,” Cleland wrote. “She shall detail who was involved, what was discovered, when, and how it was disclosed.” A spokesperson from the attorney general’s office offered no statement, but said that they will comply with the order. Sandusky attorney Alexander Lindsay addressed the media after the hearing, expressing his surprise and thankfulness for Cleland’s order. Lindsay said that if it becomes apparent that grand jury documents related to Sandusky’s case were leaked, all charges against him should be dismissed and Sandusky should be a “free man.” The remainder of the hearing included arguments over the various discovery requests Sandusky has made regarding his attempted appeal. Cleland explained to Lindsay, who has asked for a subpoena power to interview witnesses that could be helpful in the appeal, that he does not believe he has the power to grant that authority.

Department of Health reports three possible cases of mumps UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, is reporting three possible cases of the mumps on the University Park campus. University Health Services has advised all students, faculty and staff to check with their health care providers to confirm receipt of two doses of the MMR vaccine after their first birthday. The DOH is currently investigating. All students are asked to request a copy of their immunization record from their private health care provider be faxed to University Health Services at (814) 8656982. The three potential cases identified are in individuals who do not reside in the

residence halls. However, all students are recommended to follow the guidance suggested in this alert and also by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mumps is a highly infectious disease passed through saliva and respiratory secretions. Sharing food or drink, or touching a surface contaminated with the virus then touching your eyes, nose or mouth, or having other direct contact with respiratory secretions, are ways that mumps may be transmitted. Symptoms of mumps often include tender swollen glands below the ear or along the jawline, headache, fever and cold-like symptoms. The swelling can occur either on one side only or on both sides of the face and neck. People with mumps are

infectious from two days before swelling begins through five days after the start of swelling. Typically, two doses of the mumps vaccine provide adequate immunity to the infection. Anyone who has not received two doses of the vaccine, often referred to as MMR, should contact their health care provider to schedule an appointment. Students may contact University Health Services to schedule an appointment for the MMR vaccine. Penn State asks all students to attest to their vaccination for MMR before they arrive on campus for their freshman year. The Pennsylvania Department of Health and the CDC recommend that anyone who has only received a single dose of

the MMR vaccine receive a second dose as soon as possible. Anyone who does not have proof of vaccination may be excluded from campus until 21 days after the last possible date of infection. Once vaccinated, they may return to campus. University Health Services recommends that all students take precautions and avoid sharing food or drinks or engaging in drinking games, or participating in other activities that may result in salivary exposure. In addition, frequent hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette are also helpful in preventing the spread of this and many other diseases. For more information, visit www. or www.

Google’s education chief delivers keynote at PSU summit By HILARY APPLEMAN Special to The Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — Colleges and universities need to create lifelong learning partnerships with their students and alumni, Google’s chief education evangelist told a Penn State audience Nov. 3. “If my 14-year-old comes to Penn State, I want you to have him forever,” Jaime Casap said in a keynote address to about 150 academic and business leaders at the 2015 EdTech Network Summit. “I want you to be able to connect with him and communicate with him, and 10 years down the road to be able to provide more training or more research.” When Casap finished college and graduate school he remembers thinking, “I am done learning.” “That was false way back then, and it’s even more false today,” he said. “We’re never done. So where’s that partnership, that relationship?” CEOs and representatives from more than 50 educational technology companies participated in the summit, which was recently held at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. Participants looked at ways to develop solutions for the challenges facing higher education. Casap, who was part of the team that launched Google Apps for Education, said the educational model that has worked for so long in this country needs reconfiguring for today’s “globally connected, network-based and knowledge-based economy.” “We have to create education models that reflect that economy, just like we did 150 years ago,” he said. “We have to think about: What does education need to look like?” Until recently, knowledge came from teachers and professors or from the library. “Now we have the world at our fingertips, but we’re still using the educational model where we didn’t have that,” Casap said. Members of Generation Z don’t know a world without smartphones or Wi-Fi or Google, Casap said. They aren’t wired differently, “but how they think about learning is different,” he said. “We have to make

sure they’re not just natives to digital technology — that we actually teach them to be good digital leaders.” That means teaching them how to examine and vet information, Casap said. “No matter how hard this generation tries — and my 14-year-old is trying very, very hard — they will never be able to watch every video on YouTube,” he said. “About 100 hours of video gets pushed up to YouTube every minute. How do you make sense of the information that’s coming at them? How do we help them look at the world from both a traditional way of doing things but also the digital way — and how do those things relate to each other?” Casap said he cringes every time someone asks his 14-year-old son what he wants to be when he grows up. “There’s a good chance that his job doesn’t even exist yet,” he said. In that world, educators should ask students what problems they want to solve, not what they want to be, he said. “Then we can follow up with, ‘What are the knowledge, the skills and abilities you need to solve that problem?’” he said. “How do you get those knowledge, skills and abilities? What classes can you take? Who should you be collaborating with? What websites should you be visiting? What blogs should you be reading? What research should you be paying attention to?” Young people today value higher education, but they are outcome-oriented and looking for more competency-based education, Casap said. They want to “take what they learn and practice it on a consistent basis” — in real-life experiences such as internships. Colleges and universities also need to emphasize the opportunities they offer to build innovation and entrepreneurial skills, Casap said. Casap said he is constantly asked what education of the future or the classroom of the future will look like, and his answer is, “I don’t know.” Twenty years ago, just 1 percent of the world was online. Today, it is 40 percent. “The Internet is new for us,” Casap said. “This is the most exciting time in education.”

Sandusky, from page 7 “Where in the rules or statutes is it afforded for me to give you subpoena power?” Cleland asked. “I want to know where I have the authority to provide you subpoena power.” Lindsay’s argument was essentially that it is not explicitly granted to Cleland in Pennsylvania law, but it also is not explicitly banned either. Lindsay said that subpoena power is “inherent with discovery ... and the law does not specify the scope of discovery.” On the subject of supposed attorney fee agreements, which Lindsay believes would prove financial incentives for witnesses to testify against Sandusky if they exist, Cleland seemed to side with the commonwealth’s opinion that he cannot subpoena those documents from private attorneys, especially when he is not sure if they exist. “What we feel is essential is what these young men signed. They all said they signed something. They said they didn’t know what it was. They said they didn’t pay any fees,” Lindsay said. “… I wasn’t born yesterday.

Penn State.” The legal argument is that Sandusky’s trial attorneys failed to effectively defend their client by not subpoenaing these documents at the time of the trial. “These lawyers were there to get them money. They had a financial interest in the outcome of the case,” Lindsay said. “… Defense counsel was ineffective for not subpoenaing these.” But when it comes to the fee agreements and Sandusky’s request for documents related to a report on grand jury leaks that might not even exist, Cleland was not sold on the defense’s argument. “It’s one thing to say, ‘I want discovery to get documents I know exist.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘I want discovery to find out whether documents exist.’ One is permissible and the other isn’t permissible and Pennsylvania case law is very clear about that,” Cleland said. The third discovery request is related to Victim No. 2, who Sandusky was allegedly seen having sexual intercourse with by football graduate assistant Mike McQueary in the locker room shower. McQueary’s story has changed over the years on multiple occasions, and Sandusky’s attorneys want to subpoena the victim, who they say could contradict McQueary’s testimony. “(He) is crucial because he is the witness who can contradict Mr. McQueary’s testimony,” Lindsay said. “We like to say Mr. McQueary’s testimony is a Christmas tree from which all of these ornaments are hung.” A number of notable faces were in the Bellefonte courtroom Oct. 29, including former Penn State football coach Dick Anderson, Dottie Sandusky and a group of supporters led by John Ziegler wearing “Justice for Jerry” pins. The burden is now on Cleland to rule on the various discovery requests, which likely will not occur until after Kane complies with the order related to judge Feudale’s alleged leaks.

Will FEMA never learn from the past? By Newsday The litany of post-Sandy compensation problems seems endless. Did we learn nothing from the aftermath of Katrina? A federal watchdog found more than 29,000 Sandy victims awarded $250 million by the Federal Emergency Management Agency might have gotten duplicate private insurance payouts for the same losses, which is against federal law. Among the unsurprising things exposed here: Some people will cheat; some people legitimately don’t know the law; and FEMA, by relying on victims’ self-reporting, can’t catch either. Also, it turns out FEMA is woefully behind in reviewing flood insurance claims thought to be underpaid because of such factors as faulty engineering reports. This despite the agency’s explicit promise of a streamlined process when it started the work in May. Now, twice as many adjusters are working seven days a week to speed things up. FEMA must learn from experience once and for all, so we stop following natural disasters with man-made ones.

els is “The Time Traveler’s Wife” — a story about a woman whose life is periodically interrupted by the arrival and disappearance of a time traveler who was the love of her life and how her knowledge about the future and her insight into the past impacted her life. If given the opportunity, would you want to return to the past or jump forward to the future? There are times in my life that I would love to re-experience. My wedding day. The excitement in the days immediately following the birth of our kids. Family vacations. Those “nothing special” evenings that included dinner and talking around the table with my school-aged children. The feel of toddler arms around my neck when a little one was sad or scared or just wanted to hug. Great moments in my career. The chance to talk to my Dad again. Unfortunately, time travel back would also likely mean having to reexperience some of the mistakes, sad times and painful memories that got us to where we are today. With the benefit of hindsight one might be inclined to make the other decision or take the other path — and to change who we are. I’ll pass on that. As for moving the clock forward to see what lies ahead? I’ll pass on that too. The motivation, drive and excitement about “what’s next” could impact the decisions that we make today if we already know the outcome. I saw one of those inspirational postings on Facebook last week. It said “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That is why it’s called the present.” I think I’ll just stay where I am. So, for the next few days as I look at the clock and try to figure out the “real” time, I will know that eventually my body will adjust. I will wake at 4 a.m. for a few mornings and fall asleep right after the news but soon my winter clock will kick in. It will feel normal — until April, when we do it all over again.

Debates don’t need live audiences By Bloomberg News Service This year’s presidential debates have succeeded far beyond expectations — for the networks. For the public, not so much. No one wants to turn one of the fall season’s biggest hits — a hybrid of drama, comedy and reality TV — into a national version of those local meetings commonly shown late at night on the public-access TV channel. But presidential debates should strive to inform more than entertain, and on that score they could stand some improvement. To say this isn’t to buy into the selfserving commentary of media critics like Ted Cruz. Nor is it necessary to concede to the comical demands made by several disgruntled Republican candidates after the recent CNBC debate. Making the debates better should be a bipartisan cause.

There is no shortage of suggestions, some more realistic than others. One that could make a big difference: Hold the debates in studios with no live audience. It would keep moderators and candidates alike from playing to the crowd, and it would increase the time candidates have to answer questions, while also removing incentives to dodge questions or score cheap points. Regardless, any improvements should be judged according to a few guiding principles: • A debate should be among candidates, not between a candidate and a moderator. There’s nothing wrong with a pointed question, and followups are always necessary, but moderators should at all times strive to stay in the background. • The networks and the parties should err on the side of inclusion. It’s fine for polling to determine eligibility,

but once candidates are on the stage, the moderators should be responsible for upholding the principle of equal time as best they can. • Politics is fair game. Candidates should be asked not only about their plans, but how they would get them done. Incredibly, given Washington’s dysfunction and the difficulty that presidents have had enacting their agendas, such questions remain all too rare. There will always be complaints that this question or that was unfair, and there’s no way to completely eliminate grandstanding, from either the candidates or the moderators. Not that you’d want to: It’s the possibility of tension that keeps people watching. It’s up to the political parties and the news media — not to mention the candidates themselves — to ensure their audience finds the debates engaging and enlightening.

Look your best to feel your best during treatments HERSHEY — When facing a cancer diagnosis, it can be challenging to keep one’s spirits up. For women, the side effects that treatment may have on their physical appearance can make it difficult to leave the house and face the world. Such side effects can vary from patient to patient, but they can include hair loss, dry skin, changes in finger and toe nails, and weight gain or swelling. Lynn Fantom, clinical nurse coordinator at Penn State Hershey Breast Center, said women going through treatment can help combat the effects to their psyche by being proactive, educating themselves and getting support.


“For many women, hair loss is kind of the big neon sign that says, ‘I have cancer,’” Fantom said. The Breast Center staff is proactive and talks to patients about head coverings — such as wigs, scarves and hats — before hair loss and recommends the American Cancer Society wig room in the Cancer Institute, which provides them free of charge.


Fantom recommends that any woman going though treatment talk to her health care team so they can walk her through what’s going to happen and offer tips. She reminds patients to use moisturizer regularly to combat dry skin and suggests they suck on ice chips to avoid or minimize mouth sores. Patient navigators such as Damaris Perez, whose position at Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute is made possible by the American Cancer Society, can also help women locate help and services. “Sometimes, they don’t think ahead to

the potential side effects of treatment,” Perez said. “For example, they don’t realize they may lose their eyebrows — but that they don’t have to face the world without any.”


While it is important to maintain healthful nutrition, some patients find it difficult because a patient’s taste is altered due to the chemotherapy. Fantom said patients should try to remain active, too, even if it’s just walking. She notes it can help patients tolerate chemotherapy better.


Whether through therapy or support groups, Fantom recommends women in treatment seek help to face the physical changes they will experience through treatment. In the case of breast cancer, many women in treatment struggle with lasting scars and losing their breasts. Only others in treatment or survivors can relate. “Women going through cancer treatment can talk to one another about how they’re feeling in different stages throughout their treatment plan,” Fantom said. “It’s not only physical, but it’s also emotional — and the emotional aspect is a lot more impactful than the physical sometimes.”


Fantom recommends maintaining good hygiene and seeking out makeup tips either online or at a Look Good Feel Better workshop. Sessions are held on a monthly basis at Penn State Hershey. They are free and open to all women with cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy, radia-

Home Nursing Agency to hold tree lighting ceremony STATE COLLEGE — Home Nursing Agency Foundation will once again host “Lights of Love,” a special tribute event that invites participants to shine their own special lights in honor or memory of those dear to them. Selected trees at Home Nursing Agency’s State College office will be lit with bright lights. White lights represent the hospice program and blue lights represent grief services for children, adults and families. The community is invited to attend the Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23, at 450 Windmere Drive, Suite 100. This special tribute event will feature the lighting of the trees, light refreshments, music by Home Nursing Agency Hospice volunteer Ellen Sling-

erland and fellowship. Additional trees will be lit in all counties served by agency services and will remain lit through Friday, Jan. 8. Donations of any amount can be given to honor or memorialize a loved one. All proceeds from Lights of Love will benefit the agency’s hospice and grief services. Donations can be made by calling (855) GIVE-HNA (448-3462) or visiting New this year, donors can write personal dedications in memory or honor of their loved ones. The dedications will be featured on interactive trees on the agency’s website. For more information, contact Pam Seasoltz, director of development, at (814) 946-5411, ext. 2565.


EVEN DURING cancer treatments, there are plenty of ways to keep feeling your best. Exercise is one of the most important ways. tion or other forms of treatment. Many of the volunteer cosmetologists who run the workshops are survivors themselves and are specially trained to assist patients in treatment. Participants are given makeup kits and are able to bring their wigs along to be styled and learn how to care for them. The women also learn techniques on skin care and nail care. “They have makeup on, they have a wig on that looks realistic and they can go out with more confidence,” Fantom said. “The more a patient feels upbeat and hopeful about things, the better they do through treatment and it can actually help with the

side effects.” The women who attend are often helped by meeting others in treatment. “They actually know what the patient is feeling during different stages, they’ve actually been there. You can always empathize or sympathize but if you’ve not walked those shoes, you don’t really know the intensity of those feelings,” Fantom said. “When they come into the room, they get to see other patients and they get to interact with one another, they can laugh, they feel that they are on common ground, and it’s a place to feel safe and ask questions,” Perez said.

J.C. Blair’s Huntingdon Gastroenterology Associates hires P.A. HUNTINGDON — The physicians and staff of J.C. Blair’s Huntingdon Gastroenterology Associates are pleased to welcome physician assistant Stephanie Lynch to their practice. Lynch is seeing patients at J.C. Blair’s new HGA offices in Suite 7 of the 900 Bryan Street Office Building on the campus of J.C. Blair Hospital in Huntingdon. Lynch recently completed her Master of Health Science degree and physician assistant training at Lock Haven University. She began her college education at Juniata College and completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Clarion University.

Under the supervision of Dr. Keith A. Waddle and Dr. Michael F. Gaugler, Lynch arranges endoscopic studies for patients and sees them for follow-up appointments when needed. She assists the physicians at the hospital and in the office. She joins physician assistant Tom Sullivan, who has been with HGA since 2008. Lynch is looking forward to the clinical, hands-on experience with patients and working with a team-oriented staff. She will play an integral part in providing a new procedure called capsule endoscopy, which the practice is starting this month.

Be aware of deep vein thrombosis risks, symptoms By DR. JEAN LUMADUE Special to the Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — World Thrombosis Day, held Oct. 13, was created to make people aware of serious but preventable conditions that are related to blood clots. Deep vein thrombosis occurs when an abnormal blood clot forms in the deep veins of the lower leg, thigh or pelvis (and occasionally the arm or abdomen). If these blood clots break apart and travel to the lungs, they can cause a life-threatening condition known as pulmonary embolism. Together, DVT and PE make up a category of diseases known as venous thromboembolism. In the U.S., an estimated 100,000 to 300,000 people die each year from VTE, and millions more suffer disability from blood clots forming in the legs or other parts of the body. VTE can happen to anyone, but there are well-recognized risks for the development of abnormal blood clots, which include:

Injury to a vein caused by fractures or surgery. Slowed blood flow in the extremities, such as limited mobility or confinement in bed for a medical condition or sitting for a long time (such as traveling in a car or airplane), especially with legs crossed or underneath the body. Increased female hormones (birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy) or pregnancy (up to six weeks after giving birth). Certain chronic medical illnesses, such as heart or lung disease or colitis. Cancer. A family history of DVT or PE. Age (risk increases with age). Obesity. A catheter in a vein. Smoking. Inherited clotting disorders (such as the Factor V Leiden mutation). You are at greater risk for developing a blood clot if you have had one in the past; often they form in the same part of the body. About a third of people who have a blood clot will have another in the future.

Signs and symptoms of a DVT are important to recognize and include pain, redness, heat and swelling of an affected leg or arm. Blood clots in the abdomen can cause abdominal pain. Contact your health care provider as soon as possible should these symptoms occur. DVT can be confirmed or ruled out by an ultrasound or, in some cases, a blood test. Even though a pulmonary embolism typically comes from a DVT, you do not have to have symptoms of a DVT in order to have a PE. Symptoms of a PE include chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing and a rapid heartbeat. Persons with these symptoms should seek emergency attention. There are a number of things you can do to decrease your chance of having a VTE: Move around as soon as your doctor permits after having been confined to bed, or having a surgery, illness or injury. When traveling, get up and walk around at least every two to three hours. Exercise your legs while you’re sitting

by raising and lowering your toes, keeping your heels on the ground or by writing the alphabet with your feet. Maintain a healthy weight and avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Stop smoking. Stay well hydrated. If you have had a VTE, either a DVT or a PE, you will be prescribed medication to treat it. Both DVT and PE are treated with blood thinners (also known as anticoagulants), which keep the blood clot from getting larger while your body destroys it. A number of different blood thinners are approved for treating VTE. Like all medications, these have different properties that your health care provider will consider in determining which medicine is right for you. It is important to take these medicines as directed by your doctor. Not doing so may actually increase your chances of having another blood clot. The length of time you need to use them depends on the type of blood clot you had, the seriousness of the blood clot, and most importantly, your own personal risk factors for recurrence.

Annual blood challenge drive on tap for November STATE COLLEGE — The annual Penn State-Michigan State Blood Challenge for the American Red Cross is kicking off its 22nd year. Blood drives will be held at various locations on campus through Thursday, Nov. 19. The challenge encourages blood donations from students and staff of the Penn State community in a friendly competition against Michigan State. As the holidays approach, a seasonal decline in blood donations occurs. That is why the ARC hopes the the spirit and dedication of Penn State students will find them giving blood before the holidays are

in full swing. Michigan State has won eight challenges over the years, while Penn State has claimed the title 13 times. Michigan State won last year. But, the real winners are the countless patients who have benefited from the generosity of donors. Presenting donors will receive a Penn State-Michigan State Challenge T-shirt and enjoy special canteen refreshments, including food from Dickey’s BBQ, Domino’s Pizza, Gumby’s Pizza, Philly Pretzel and Herlocher’s Mustard. During the event, student organi-

Shields joins Mount Nittany Physician Group’s urology practice STATE COLLEGE — Mount Nittany Health recently announced the addition of Dr. John Shields to Mount Nittany Physician Group Urology. “Being a urologist allows me to spend a good deal of my time not only in the operating room, but also in clinics, where I can be face to face with my patients,” said Shields. “In addition, urology has always been on the cutting edge of medicine, paving the way for advances such as endoscopy, laparoscopy and robotics, and targeted cancer therapy.” Shields received his medical degree from The Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland. He did his residency in urology at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Fla., where he was selected as chief resident. Shields provides urology services at Mount Nittany Health-University Drive,

905 University Drive, State College. “During my training I met a urologist by the name of Dr. David Hickey, who was a huge influence on me,” said Shields. “He showed me how I can really make a difference, both to the patient and to the community, and I’m JOHN SHIELDS excited to do just that as I start an exciting chapter of my life here in State College.” Mount Nittany Physician Group Urology also offers care in Mifflin County, Clearfield and Altoona.

zations will be competing for the Alpha Epsilon Delta Blood Cup, sponsored by Penn State’s pre-medical honor fraternity. Awards are given for three different categories of organizations: small group, large group and social Greek group. Last year’s winners were Circle K, Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania and Theta Delta Chi Fraternity. “What sets apart the Penn State community from other universities is our commitment to making a difference. Through the Penn State-Michigan State Blood Challenge, THON and many other philanthrop-

ic endeavors, Penn State will continue to touch the lives of others,” said Penn State President Eric Barron. The donation process has been conveniently shortened by 15 to 20 minutes due to the implementation of RapidPass, which lets donors complete the pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online on the day of donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. RapidPass is available at www.redcrossbloodorg/rapidpass. The Red Cross also has a new blood donor app to schedule appointments, and walk-ins are always welcome.

Washington Post reporter gives advice to students By GIANNA MARTORANO

UNIVERSITY PARK — Carol Leonning, of the Washington Post, gave some rewarding advice to students about their journalism careers during Penn State’s annual Foster-Foreman Conference of Distinguished Writers. “The best revelatory journalism happens with investment — the investment of heart, time and energy. It’s an amazing feeling to pull back the layers of government and corporations,” Leonning said. Upon arrival at the talk, attendees received a copy of Leonning’s article, “Secret Service fumbled response to 2011 shooting.” “A mentally unhinged man from Idaho drove all the way to Washington, D.C., to

shoot the White House and the Secret Service kept it hush-hush. The information was never given to the public,” said Leonning. Leonning’s article was originally published in a video/audio format. This sparked an interesting conversation when student journalism major Katie Fiorillo posed the question, “Do you think that this is the way journalism is going? To a multimedia format?” “Readers come to stories with different texts. I was glad to be convinced of this. I don’t believe it will ever replace text,” said Leonning. A student then asked Leonning about her intensity factor and if that intimidates her. “You’re going to make a mistake, and you’re going to get things wrong. The best


thing to do about this is to cop up to it and learn from it,” she replied. “Mistakes happen when you’re on a deadline, with rushing and competition. It’s best to remember these are fragile situations.” Reviews of the talk by students were genCAROL LEONNING erally positive. “I really liked how she summarized her important work in the beginning so she could get right to the important stuff,” said attendee Yarianne Aquino. Another student, Sarah Giegerich, said,

“I thought she gave good advice to potential reporters. I enjoyed it more than I originally expected.” “Although I’m a public relations major, I still found Leonnig very insightful. I walked out of that auditorium with the mentality that perseverance, heart and determination is key for success in any field,” said attendee Sabrina Krupko. According to the Penn State College of Communications website, “The (FosterForeman) conference is named in honor of Penn State alumni Larry and Ellen Foster, who created the endowment for the professorship and program, and Gene Foreman, the retired Foster Professor of Communications who continues to coordinate the series that was started under his direction 14 years ago.”

Local church works to ‘Stop Hunger Now’ By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — About 50 members of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Centre Hall recently gathered in the Old Fort American Legion Hall in an effort to make an impact on world hunger. They packed 10,000 meals of rice and freeze-dried vegetables in plastic bags for Stop Hunger Now. Stop Hunger Now is an organization that gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, working to end global hunger in our lifetime. It was established in 1998 and has provided more than 180 million meals to people in 65 countries. Based in Raleigh, N.C., Stop Hunger Now operates throughout the U.S. and through affiliates in developing countries. St. Luke’s Community Relations Committee, chaired by Carol Sharpe, organized the meal-packing event with the help of Shaun Starkey, assistant program manager for the Pittsburgh branch of Stop Hunger Now. On Oct. 28, Starkey brought a tractor-trailer load of sacks of rice and other meal ingredients to the Legion building. Meal assembly lines were set up on tables in the building’s basement. Church volunteers, wearing hair nets and plastic gloves, bagged the ingredients with the aid of measuring cups and funnels. The filled bags were then heat-sealed, stacked on pallets and loaded onto the truck, which returned to the Pittsburgh area that night.

SAM STITZER/For the Gazette

MEMBERS OF St. Luke’s Lutheran Church bagged 10,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now, an organization that works toward international hunger relief. Starkey said Stop Hunger Now ships about 258,000 meals at a time across the Atlantic Ocean in a large cargo container. “We have partner organizations in 71 different countries,” he said. “They (meals)

could go anywhere from Asia to Latin America, Africa or the Middle East.” Starkey said the meals’ destinations vary according to where the most critical needs are. “We assess who has the great-

est need at the time a shipment arrives,” he said. He noted that particular attention is given to areas dealing with refugees or natural disasters. Starkey said Stop Hunger Now is not a faith-based organization per se, but it partners with many churches, synagogues and mosques. He noted that Stop Hunger Now’s founder, Ray Buchanan, was a Methodist minister who saw firsthand the effects of hunger and starvation while on international mission trips and wanted to do something to alleviate hunger and poverty. The organization’s initial focus was on sending medical supplies to impoverished countries, and the meal packaging program began in 2005. “We were looking for a more hands-on way to engage Americans in the fight against poverty, and this was the most streamlined and effective way we could find to get that hands-on experience,” Starkey said. The meal-packing night took on a party atmosphere, with upbeat classic rock music playing, and Starkey ringing a large gong marking each 1,000 meals bagged, drawing cheers from the workers. Church member Nancy Shunk said the ingredients and supplies cost the church 29 cents per meal, and the church enthusiastically raised its own funds for the project. “The congregation has been great,” Shunk said. “They supported us with donations every week.”

Boy Scouts rename award to reflect Paterno legacy STATE COLLEGE — Since 1974, the Juniata Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America has honored a member of the community with the Good Scout Award for exhibiting the ideals and values of the Boy Scouts. To make the award more recognizable to the Centre County community, the Good Scout Dinner committee has changed the name of the Good Scout Award to the Joseph and Suzanne Paterno Community Impact Award. “This (name change) is so appropriate,” said Brent Pasquinelli, a Good Scout Dinner committee member. “It fits so well because Joe and Sue devoted their lives to serving young people beyond raising five kids and 17 grandchildren. They have touched the lives of thousands of youth, serving as a role model and inspiring them to reach higher.” Joe Paterno was the first person to receive the Good Scout Award in 1974. Sue Paterno was honored as the recipient in 2007. The award has been renamed in honor of the late Penn State football coach and his wife for their years of philanthropy and service to the community. A few of the organizations they supported and continue to support include Special Olympics of Pennsylvania and Centre County United Way. “Joe and I were both Scouts and know the Scouting world and what it can do for young people,” said Sue Paterno. “We want the Scouting world to continue to help young people become the best they can be.” The chosen recipient of the 2016 Joseph and Suzanne Paterno Community Impact Award will be announced at the start of the new year. The honoree will be presented with the award during the Good Scout Dinner in the spring. Proceeds from the dinner will benefit youth served by the Juniata Valley Council.

Centre Hall-Potter Elementary School holds Halloween parade By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — Centre Hall-Potter Elementary School students and teachers took to the streets Oct. 30 for the school’s annual Halloween parade. Dressed in costumes and grouped by grades, students were greeted by spectators who cheered and took photos. Along their route through Centre Hall, the children sought donations for the Penns Valley HOPE Fund, instead of the

usual candy treats. Citizens and merchants responded with coins and cash to help the local charity. Many traditional costumes — witches, vampires, princesses, athletes and superheroes — were worn by parade participants. Some costumes were more topical. Fourthgrader Alex Page dressed as New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, carrying a deflated football. Plenty of laughter and chatter accompanied the procession, as the children, teachers and spectators enjoyed this great fall tradition.

Q&A: Eric Senseman talks about winning 50-mile race easy and I was alone from less than a mile into the race until the end. ... Typically, you’ll have a least a couple other runners who are part of the race, which helps pass the time and take your mind off the race. It was a struggle at times continuing to push myself knowing that I didn’t have to because I knew I had a big lead. CCG: What do you think about when you’re running alone for 50 miles? Senseman: I focus on a lot of things, like when do I take my next electrolyte tab, how much water have I consumed in the last hour. I knew the course since I’ve run it before, so thinking ahead about where I needed to really maintain focus, trying to maintain my pace that keeps me under six hours. That may not sound like much, but when you’re just repeating through these different things, the time seems to go pretty fast. CCG: Can you describe what it’s like to run 50 miles? Senseman: I wish I could describe what it’s like. I really wish I had a good answer, but I don’t. You’re definitely tired, but you’re not supposed to feel like you are at the end of a workday where you are lethargic and not very motivated. You’re definitely tired, but your mind is also very energized. You release a lot of endorphins. CCG: To feel like that you must train a lot. How did you prepare for this race? Senseman: I’m running a race in four weeks, the JFK 50 Mile, which is in Maryland. That’s a goal race for me, so I started a 10-week training plan back in the beginning of September. This past week was the end of my sixth week. I’m really just training for that and this was a step toward preparing for that race. This past week was the

STATE COLLEGE — This was a good year for Eric Senseman. The 26-year-old athlete from Colorado won the annual Tussey Mountainback 50-mile Relay and Ultramarathon, held at Rothrock State Forest Oct. 25. Senseman, of Denver, battled Cole Crosby for second place in last year’s race, finishing ahead by about four minutes with a time of 6:10:28. But, he fell behind first-place runner Michael Wardian’s time by about 25 minutes. Senseman had much less to worry about this year, with Wardian sitting this race out and Crosby canceling a couple days before the race. “Finishing in under six hours was definitely my goal this year,” Senseman said. With an average pace of about seven minutes a mile, he completed the race with a personal record for the course of 5:55. The Centre County Gazette caught up with Senseman a couple days after the race. Centre County Gazette: How did you manage to shave off 15 minutes from your time this year? Senseman: My training has changed this year. I’ve been working under a guy named Ian Torrence and he’s changed things around in ways that are clearly better than how I was training before. My legs were better conditioned for this race, and my fitness was better so the faster paces didn’t feel as difficult. CCG: Did you face any obstacles this year that you didn’t last year? Senseman: Running alone. That’s never

That’s not to say I wasn’t running before that, I just wasn’t preparing specifically for a 50-mile road race. CCG: Did you do anything the night before to prepare for the race? Senseman: Not specifically. Preparation really actually begins a week or two before the race in terms of cutting down miles, increasing some intensity, and then the week of is about making sure you are getting enough rest and eating enough.

Tussey Mountainback race brings new results By ALEXA LEWIS BOALSBURG — If you were at last year’s Tussey Mountainback 50-Mile Relay and Ultramarathon in Rothrock State Forest, you’ll know this year’s race, held Oct. 25, was quite different. Michael Wardian, last year’s winner for the men’s ultramarathon division, sat out this year and Connie Gardner, who won her third overall women’s title last year at Rothrock, dropped out halfway through the race, leaving two veteran runners a sure chance to steal this year’s titles. Eric Senseman, 26, of Denver, Colo., won the men’s ultramarathon division, setting a personal record of 5:55 after he finished last year in second place with a time of 6:10:28, 25 minutes behind Wardian. His closer competition last year was Cole Crosby, who crossed the finish line four minutes later. But, this year, Crosby told race director Mike Casper a few days before the race that he would not attend, basically locking Senseman in for the win. “Eric ended up being the favorite runner and he raced the race on his own,” Casper said. “His challenge wasn’t then beating Cole, but beating his own record and the course record.” While Senseman shaved 15 minutes off his 2014 course time, he wasn’t able to break the course record set in 2013. The women’s ultramarathon race also brought new results, with Gardner not defending her title and last year’s fourth-place runner earning the victory this year. “It was surprising because (Gardner) is really a highly experienced runner with races much longer than this,” Casper said. “She has done very well in 24-hour races where she runs over 100 miles.” Gardner’s decision to drop out left the door open for Heather Hoechst, 36, who finished last year with a time of 7:37:58. Hoechst didn’t need Gardner to drop out to win, though, as she set a women’s record for the redesigned course finishing with a time of 7:05:53.

“I started out a bit quicker than I did last year and was pretty much in the front from the beginning, which made me a little bit nervous,” Hoechst, who is from Philadelphia, said. “But, I just told myself I’m just going to keep running how I feel until the 30-mile mark, and if I’m still feeling good I’m going to pick it up.” The ultramarathon race, which is a qualifier for the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, attracts renowned runners from all over the country, Casper said. However, the relay race, which is open to groups ranging from two to eight runners, brings out mostly people within a 100-mile radius of the Rothrock. “Even the people from out of town went to Penn State, so we spent four years running together and know Rothrock like the back of our hand,” said the winning fiveperson relay team’s captain Matt Kisenwether of his teammates. While each relay team has its own story, the eightmember “Old Men of the Mountains” has stood out since 2007 when it got together for its first Mountainback race. The average age of the members this year was 78. George Etzweiler, 95, is the oldest member on the team, but he hasn’t looked back since he started running at age 30. “What’s my secret? The true answer is just plain luck. I was lucky enough to get a good set of genes,” Etzweiler said. Whether it’s Etzweiler, who runs a leg of the race three times a week with friends, or Hoechst, who travels about 200 miles for the race each year, the forest’s atmosphere is what makes the race so special. “My favorite part of race is going down into the Alan Seeger Natural Area where all the old hemlocks are and streams,” Hoechst said. “There was a bit of mist on Sunday and it almost felt like you were in the shire.” Shares of $4,000 were distributed among the top five men and five women ultramarathon winners and the top runner who is older than 40.

For the first time, Shaver’s Creek will undergo major improvements and new construction to help serve the current demand. “We’ve seen tremendous growth during the past decade and a half in the number of students and visitors who utilize the farreaching resources at Shaver’s Creek,” said director Mark McLaughlin. “The expansion and renovation project is necessary to help provide outstanding services to the more than 60,000 people who rely on our expertise each year.” The first component of the multi-phase project is projected to cost $4 million, funded through a combination of philanthropy and fiscal support from Penn State Outreach and Online Education. Shaver’s Creek upgrades — with an anticipated start date for the first phase slated for summer 2016 — will include: Two additional classrooms with the flexibility to open into one larger classroom for more than 100 people. An enhanced visitor experience with a main building renovation, including upgrades to the Discovery Room and bookstore. Administrative/staff office space ad-

dition for 25 full-time employees — previously spread throughout five buildings — as well as interns, volunteers and graduate assistants. Improvements to the Raptor Center and upper classroom (second phase). The upgrades will help accommodate the more than 1,300 Penn State students — up from 275 in 2001 — as well as 50,000 non-credit program attendees and nearly 9,000 visitors who use Penn State’s outdoor education field lab and nature center during the year. For Penn State, Shaver’s Creek is home to more than 35 credit-bearing courses across six colleges and nine departments. McLaughlin said the improvements will help the facility continue its mission of outreach and instruction. “We’re building the future of environmental education and helping prepare the next generation to make informed decisions and choices,” said McLaughlin. “This project will enrich the educational experience with the natural world for all those who come to Shaver’s Creek.” The original building at Shaver’s Creek, which was founded in 1976, was built in 1938 as a forestry lodge for group functions and warm-weather instruction. Shaver’s Creek provides several resources for Penn State students and the community, including the environmental and raptor centers, outdoor school and public festivals.

Historical society presents awards STATE COLLEGE — It had nothing to do with Halloween, but some long-dead spirits of Centre County got their due Oct. 25 at the 27th annual Centre County Historical Society’s Historic Preservation Awards program. Town & Gown magazine won the Education and Advocacy Award for its 50 years of publishing columns on Centre County history. On behalf of the Pine Grove Mills Union Cemetery Committee, Carol Ziegler accepted the award for History and Heritage for work on the Union Cemetery, which is the final resting place of Centre Countians who served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. The multi-year volunteer project involved cleaning the gravestones, completing epitaphs that were no longer legible and collecting information about each person buried in the cemetery. The stories were compiled into a threevolume book series that tells a larger story of life in 19th-century Pine Grove Mills. Penn State received the Preservation and Restoration Award for its successful efforts to save the Henry Varnum Poor

Land-Grant Frescoes on the walls of Old Main. The inaugural Jaqueline J. Melander Award for lifetime achievement in historic preservation was given to Lemont residents Ron and Sue Smith for their work in establishing the Lemont Village Association, leading the effort to preserve the John I. Thompson Grain Elevator and Coal Sheds, and helping to create the Village Green and the many community events held there each year. The President’s Award honored Ralph Seeley, a longtime member of the society’s board of governors. He has researched and written about the Native American paths that cross central Pennsylvania and has helped hikers enjoy those paths through his decades of trail maintenance. Each year since 1988, the CCHS has recognized various individuals and organizations for their outstanding work in preserving and interpreting Centre County history.

COMMUNITY PROFILE Rebersburg features historic buildings, Amish culture By T. WAYNE WATERS

REBERSBURG — Rebersburg is the kind of place where you might meet a horse and buggy clip-clopping down the road on the way home, spot a little red schoolhouse bustling with activity, or stay in an Amishrun bed-and-breakfast in an early 19thcentury house with a great fishing creek running along the property’s border. Rebersburg is a one-and-a-half-squaremile village in Brush Valley sitting pretty between Nittany Mountain to the north, with Brush Mountain and Shriner Mountain to the south. A good stretch of Elk Creek runs through the village’s southern flank. The friendly little community alongside Route 192 in the western part of Miles Township has approximately 500 residents. “We’ve had quite an influx of new people to Rebersburg in recent years,” said Vonnie Henninger, a native of Rebersburg who moved to State College as an adult but came back some 20 years ago upon retirement. “It’s a friendly community.” Rebersburg’s fortuitous location in eastern Centre County makes it a great place for outdoor recreation. With Elk Creek right there and Penns Creek, Big Fishing Creek, Spring Creek and White Deer Creek not far, fly fishing is big in these parts, as is hiking, hunting and other such undertakings. The little burg boasts two book stores, a couple of auto repair operations, a lamp shop, a yarn retailer and a grocery store. The post office dates to the 1930s and features Art Deco detailing. Centre Pallets, a

small operation on Main Street, is Rebersburg’s only manufacturing facility. One of the book stores, Forefathers Book Shop, and its sister store, Main Street Yarn, are in a former bank building with the original vault, steel lock boxes and teller checkout windows still intact. Forefathers also has ice cream, snacks and beverages for sale. A great opportunity for some historical context is available at Gramley’s Schoolhouse Museum in Rebersburg, which is open 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday afternoons, through the end of this month. (It will reopen in the spring.) The little red schoolhouse, built in 1838 and restored in 2012, features an intriguing mix of info and artifact about Brush Valley, Miles Township and the area’s Amish communities. There are school pictures, a working player piano, homemade quilts, personal journals, information about the history of the Amish who settled in the area and more. Admission is free, but contributions are greatly appreciated. Henninger, along with other volunteers and a 10-member committee, helps to oversee the museum. She has written three books on Brush Valley and is thinking about writing another one this winter. Rebersburg was founded by Conrad Reber in 1809 when he settled here and laid out lots in a narrow band along both sides of Brush Valley Road. Though the area was originally settled mostly by English and Scots-Irish, there was a large influx of Germans from southeastern Pennsylvania in the 1800s, attracted by the rich soil, convenient water source and open farmland.

Today there are a handful of Amish homes on Rebersburg’s western end. Amish folk in the community farm, own property with homes and rental units, and operate the five-room Centre Mills Bed and Breakfast, a small lodging in a mill owner’s home built in 1813. A stone mill that dates to 1802 is also on the 26-square-mile property and Elk Creek runs through it, where fishing is accessible for B&B lodgers. The B&B and mill structures are on the National Register of Historic Places. Rebersburg also has a recognized national register district associated with it that includes everything from a historic and repurposed bank building to repurposed gas stations to a variety of old barns, garages, sheds and other outbuildings. The Rebersburg National Register District has 113 structures in total.

“The Rebersburg Fire Company Carnival brings locals together,” said Henninger. “It’s usually the second week in July. It’s an opportunity for family get-togethers and to see your neighbors. It’s held on the carnival ground behind the fire station where there are lots of little structures that are used for carnival games, food booths, an ice cream stand and there’s a stage area.” The Rebersburg Fire Company station has, in addition to all the necessary firefighting equipment, a social room and a bar, according to Henninger. “The bar is open year-round and it’s how the fire company pays its bills, for the most part,” explained Henninger. “You have to have a membership to go in.” Henninger noted that the fire company would not be able to function without the many Amish youth who serve as firemen.

Luna 2 Woodgrill & Bar: Much more than just a pizza shop Luna 2 Woodgrill & Bar opened its doors in State College nearly six years ago and, since that time, it has evolved into a restaurant that is much more than a pizza shop. In fact, according to Leslie Coursen, Luna 2 general manager, in addition to being known for its pizza, the restaurant also is known for its seafood menu. Coursen said that Luna 2 serves seafood specials each weekend, featuring fresh seafood shipped in from Washington, D.C. Customers look forward to the new and different seafood dishes served at the restaurant each weekend, she said. These dishes feature fresh shrimp, fish, crab and other seafood items that customers enjoy for their weekend dining pleasure, and specials run Thursday through Sunday each week. “In central Pennsylvania, it’s hard to find fresh seafood, so our customers enjoy having the chance to have fresh seafood each week,” Coursen said. Luna 2 is open daily for lunch and dinner and is located at 2609 E. College Ave. The partner restaurant to State College’s Faccia Luna, Luna 2 is certainly known for its pizzas, too. Coursen said the wood-fired pizzas are a big menu item, and the restaurant offers 16 specialty pies, in addition to the option to “create your own” by choosing from a huge selection of toppings.

The restaurant also boasts a full menu of fresh pastas and signature entrees, in addition to appetizers, soups, salads and sandwiches. “People think we’re an Italian place or a pizza shop, but we have a little more of an eclectic mix. Certainly we do have a lot of Italian items on the menu, but we also have sandwiches, burgers and other dishes,” Coursen said. There are a wide array of sandwiches, from woodgrilled items, such as chicken club and portobello, to other varieties, including hot sausage, chicken Parmesan and the Luna steak sandwich. Wraps are also a sandwich menu option, along with specialty burgers, such as mushroom and Swiss, Deep South and the classic burger. Signature entrees include the black strap baby back ribs, wood-grilled meatloaf and black angus flat-iron steak. Entrees and sandwiches can be accompanied by a variety of side dishes, including wood-grilled asparagus, buttermilk mashed potatoes, coleslaw or macaroni salad. And, there is a full selection of draft and bottled beers, wine and specialty drinks to enjoy while enjoying a meal at Luna 2. Coursen, who has been with the restaurant since it

Fresh off drubbing of Illinois, Penn State heads to Northwestern By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

UNIVERSITY PARK — There are any number of ways to describe the Penn State 39-0 victory over Illinois on Oct. 31 at Beaver Stadium. Dominating has been the most used, along with blowout and rout. Commanding, best of the season, exciting and even surprising were also thrown in, among others superlatives. Another, more measured way, might be to say that it was just in time. It is no secret that head coach James Franklin and his players want to be in the conversation with the best teams in the Big Ten this season. Standing now at 7-2 overall and 4-1 in the conference, the Nittany Lions are just outside that door, and with the three games left on their schedule, they can easily walk through it. That’s why the win — the kind of win over Illinois that suggests the Lions are pulling it together — is so important at just this point in the season. After the game, Franklin was asked if this was the best overall game the Lions have played since he took over. He wasn’t sure, he said, but he thought he team played well “in all three phases.” “Nothing is easy, nothing is easy in the Big Ten,” he went on, “nothing is easy with the work that we have here at Penn State. “I thought we capitalized on some opportunities tonight is what we did. I’ve got a lot of respect for University of Illinois, got a lot of respect for their coaching staff and their players, and we are just fortunate that we made some plays tonight and

we played together as a family. “I’m proud of our guys, we are getting better, we didn’t start out the season the way any of us would have liked. A lot of people wanted us to panic, we’re not going to, we are going to stay positive, we’re going to love these kids, we’re going to stick together as a family, we’re going to keep coaching, we’re going to get better. I think that is what we are doing, and we need to do that again this week.” Penn State’s opponent “this week” is Northwestern, and the Wildcats bring up some very unpleasant, albeit very useful, memories from 2014. The Nittany Lions were cruising

PENN STATE linebacker Troy Reeder looks for open field after intercepting a pass during the Oct. 31 game against Illinois at Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions won the game, 39-0. along at 4-0 after three non-conference wins and an emotional Big Ten opening victory at Rutgers when Northwestern came into Beaver Stadium. The Wildcats were struggling at that point, and in fact struggled the whole season and finished just 5-7. No matter. Northwestern scored the first two times it had the ball, and it could have easily been the first four times. The Wildcats almost completely stopped the Penn State running game, sacked quarterback Christian Hackenberg four times and had a pick-six early in the second half.

The result was a 29-6 thrashing that foreshadowed a 2-6 finish to the regular season for the Lions. “We give all the credit in the world to Northwestern,” Franklin said at the time. “They were the better team today. They were well-coached. They

CHANGER played hard and did not make a lot of mistakes. “Let’s be honest. We haven’t played pretty all year, and it caught up to us today against a good, solid, well-coached and hard-nosed team.” It’s Northwestern time again, and like last season, this will be a game played the week before Penn State’s bye week. It will also be in Evanston, against a good, solid, well-coached and hard-nosed team that is coming off its bye week after an exciting 30-28 win over Nebraska. Northwestern is not struggling this year. The Wildcats are 6-2, and they have impressive victories over Stanford (16-6), Duke (19-10), Minnesota (27-0) and Nebraska. The losses have come at Michigan (38-0) and against Iowa (40-10) on Oct. 17. In the Nebraska game, dual-threat quarterback Clayton Thorson, who is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, ran for 126 yards and a touchdown and completed 13 of 28 passes for 177 yards and another touchdown. No one else ran for more than 40 yards in the game, and seven different receivers made the 13 receptions. Dan Vitale led that group with five catches for 55 yards and a score. On defense, end Dean Lowery had 10 tackles, including six for losses, linebacker Anthony Walker had 13 tackles and corner Nick VanHoose converted a big pick-six. “That’s the great thing about college football,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said after the game, “the quarterbacks are a factor good, bad or indifferent. They are a factor with their legs and their arms and both (Nebraska’s) Tommy (Armstrong Jr.) and Clayton (Thorson) made big plays today. “I’m really proud of Clayton. It wasn’t going the way we wanted it to be going throwing the football early, but he stayed the course and he made some huge plays with his legs and settled down and really started to take what the defense was giving him in the second half. That was really the difference in the game.” For the season, Justin Jackson leads Northwestern in rushing with 770 yards on 174 carries, but Thorson is second on the team with 385 yards and five touchdowns. Thorson has added another 1,119 yards passing and six touchdowns on 107 completions. The Wildcats feature a balanced offense that averages 146 passing and 186 running yards per game, and they score 21 points. They also have 16 sacks, five fumble recoveries and five interceptions.

The good, bad and ugly: Lions’ best effort yet under Franklin UNIVERSITY PARK — Finally. Penn State clicked on all cylinders in a 39-0 drubbing of Illinois Oct. 31 at Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions put together their most complete effort during the James Franklin era. While there was mostly good, there was a little bad and ugly to go around. Let’s take a closer look at the lopsided affair. The good — Christian Hackenberg. This was probably Hack’s best game since Bill O’Brien roamed the Beaver Stadium sidelines. He completed 21 of 29 passes for 266 yards and a couple of touchdown passes. He also caught a TD and did not throw an interception in the win. It’s games like this that suggest Hackenberg is going to be a great pro. The bad — Joey Julius. The Penn State kicker struggled, having two extra-point attempts blocked. He also booted a kickoff out of bounds, which ended his day early. He likely won’t get his job back anytime soon, which may not be a bad thing. The ugly — Illinois. Wow, the Illini are bad on both sides of the ball. Defensively, they couldn’t tackle or get off the field on third down. Offensively, quarterback Wes Lunt may be one of the worst the Big Ten has to offer. Midway through the third quarter, it was pretty clear that Illinois was not going to score. Even when Penn State set the Illini up on the doorstep, they failed. It won’t be quite as easy this week against Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. — Chris Morelli

Scott finds Hackenberg for unusual QB score By BEN JONES

UNIVERSITY PARK — The bottom dropped out of Christian Hackenberg’s stomach as he saw Nick Scott turn back his way and make eye contact. This was really happening. A play weeks in the making that finally came to fruition. Scott taking the handoff and running to his right, only to turn around and throw it to a wide-open Hackenberg. The problem, of course, is that quarterbacks aren’t supposed to be catching passes. But once Illinois started honing in on the run game, Penn State’s offensive staff knew it was time to strike. “You got to sell the run,” Scott said. “They ran toss a couple times with Saquon, and really (the staff) was just watching to see what (Illinois) would do with Hack when he rolled out. “They weren’t respecting it, so they called it, I saw the safeties, I put it on the line so Hack didn’t get killed out there, and that was that. That’s a play they had tagged for me,” Scott said with a smile about the play, which was used for the first time since 2004, when Michael Robinson connected with Zack Mills against Akron.

Consider all of that, plus an extra week for NW to rest and prepare for Penn State, and this one shapes up to be every bit of a challenge as last year’s game — if not more so. The good news for Penn State is that the Lions will be fully aware of what Northwestern can do. No surprises. The bad news is that Thorson is the kind of quarterback that has given Penn State trouble all season. He can beat you with his arm or his legs, and he has an array of good

The trick here was that Scott played quarterback in high school, so this wasn’t his first rodeo getting the ball from Point A to Point B. Of course, it helps to practice and, with Hackenberg’s background in baseball, it helps to have a quarterback who can catch. “That’s how it was in practice,” Scott added. “We ran it against the scout team; they weren’t catching on to it. They (Illinois) were watching Hack (the) previous toss plays to see what the safeties would do, and they weren’t covering him.” “Once we felt they were over pursuing pretty hard on that, we were able to hit it right out the back door,” Hackenberg said. “It was a great victory in terms of how we set it up.” Hackenberg can’t remember the last time, if at all, that he has caught a touchdown pass. Admittedly, the chances have been few and far between. Either way, he took a hit as he entered the end zone despite the easy score, something Scott wasn’t too happy about, running down the field to get his quarterback’s, or in this case, receiver’s back. What exactly Scott said, he wouldn’t divulge, smiling when asked the question. “Hey, don’t do that again,” Scott said with a laugh. skill people around him. The key to this game will likely be the Penn State offense. PSU had chances last season but couldn’t move the ball and take advantage of them. It is imperative that the Lions run the ball and put points on the board in this game. Penn State had two films to closely examine this week: one of themselves against Northwestern last season and one of them against Illinois last week. The difference between the two Penn State teams is striking, and Nittany Lion fans would sure like to see more of that Illinois version.

State College posts impressive win over Cumberland Valley, 21-7 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

STATE COLLEGE — The State College football team’s defense has been resilient and dependable all season for the rapidly improving Little Lions. On Oct. 30 at Memorial Field, the defense turned from dependable to dominant in State College’s season-defining 21-7 victory over Cumberland Valley. Playing in perhaps their biggest game of the year against a team undefeated in MidPenn Conference play and just a win away from the conference title, the Little Lions needed a stellar defensive performance, and they got it. SC took control of the game with three unanswered first-half touchdowns and then made three critical second-half stops on the way to the bruising win over the Eagles. There was nothing fancy about the way these teams approached each other. Both tried to establish their running games, but as SC was scoring on three consecutive early drives, Cumberland Valley went nowhere. The Eagles’ five first half possessions ended with three punts, a State College fumble recovery and a big, drive-killing interception by linebacker Josh Ruffner. Jordan Misher (133 rushing yards) scored twice for SC on runs of 2 and 16 yards, and Noah Woods hauled in a 36yard touchdown pass from Tyler Snyder to account for the Little Lions’ 21-0 halftime lead. All the while, State College was able to keep the CV wing-T offense under control. The Eagles did score after a short drive in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter to draw to within 21-7, but that was the closest they would get. “Our defense was awesome,” State College coach Matt Lintal said. “I’m super proud of our defense and the coaching staff and all the work they put in. To slow them (CV) down and hold them to just seven points, that’s a feat in itself.”

The first two times the Eagles had the ball set the tone for the night. They ran six plays, gained 9 yards and punted twice. By the time CV got it back again, State College had a 7-0 lead after a 2-yard scoring run by Misher. Cumberland Valley then put together its initial two first downs, but CV quarterback Josh Ferguson fumbled a snap at

midfield and State College went into operation again. Just over two minutes later, Snyder found Woods streaking down the left sideline, and he lofted a perfect pass that Woods hauled in as he crossed the goal line. “He (Woods) is one of the fastest kids in the state,” SC quarterback Snyder said, “and I’ve known him since second grade.

They lined up man-press, and I knew they couldn’t guard him. I took my drop and he was wide open and he caught it.” Now ahead by two scores, State College didn’t let up. The Lions held CV to minus-7 yards and a punt on its next possession. A poor punt put SC in control again on the On a roll, Page 28

Bellefonte falls to Chestnut Ridge in OT thriller, 20-14 By CHRIS MORELLI

NEW PARIS — Over the course of the 2015 season, the Bellefonte Area High School football team has suffered some tough losses. The toughest one came Oct. 30 at Chestnut Ridge. The Red Raiders held a 14-7 lead and had the opportunity to put the game away, but the Lions battled back to force a 14-14 tie before winning the game in overtime, 20-14. “That football game did not come down to effort,” said Bellefonte head coach Shanon Manning. “Effort is why that football game was still undecided and it went into overtime. I told the guys, ‘It sucks that it came down to one play.’ As much effort as went into that game, it should never come down to one play, but it did.” The play Manning was talking about was a fourth-down pass from Bellefonte quarterback Nick Jabco. In OT, the Red Raiders were down by six points. A touchdown and extra point would have given the Red Raiders the win, but Jabco’s pass fell incomplete to end the game. It was the first start of the year for Jabco, who replaced fellow senior Mark Armstrong. Jabco threw just one pass during regulation — a completion — and rushed eight times for 51 yards. Manning said he was impressed with the way Jabco ran the Red Raider offense. “I thought Nick did a nice

We’ve kinda rushed him at quarterback over the past few weeks but he’s put an incredible amount of time into it. I thought he made some plays and kept us in the football game.” The game was close all night. After a scoreless first quarter, the Lions (6-3) struck first. Ridge QB Logan Hauck threw a backward

lateral to John Deaner, who connected with a wide-open Bryan Feather for a 65-yard touchdown. With 8:59 left in the second quarter, Ridge had a 7-0 lead. However, the Red Raiders answered. Following a Ridge punt and subsequent penalty, running back Austin Jackson hit pay dirt from 6 yards out to knot the

game at 7-7. That was the halftime score. The game would remain tied until the fourth quarter. Bellefonte grabbed a 14-7 lead on a 49-yard touchdown run by Jackson. The extra point was good and the Red Raiders held the lead with 11:01 left in the game.

After a Ridge interception, the Red Raiders moved the ball into Lions’ territory, but the drive stalled. Cody Allison missed a field goal that would have given the Red Raiders a two-score lead. “I felt really good about it,” Manning said of the field goal attempt. “We were at the left hash … we tried to get it back to the middle but we couldn’t get it quite where we wanted it. But I did feel good about it.” The Lions would tie the game on an 80-yard catch and run from Hauck to Feather. Just like that, it was 14-14. In OT, the Lions scored on a 10-yard touchdown run by Hauck. The Ridge extra point clanged off the upright, giving the Red Raiders life. However, in four plays, Bellefonte could not find the end zone. Chestnut Ridge, which is headed for the postseason, had escaped with a six-point victory. “It’s the first time we’ve had overtime,” said Chestnut Ridge head coach Max Shoemaker. “The kids didn’t even know what to do. But overall, I thought it was a great game. Bellefonte played hard and we knew they would. They’re a good football team.” The Red Raiders fell to 2-7 with the loss. They’ll close out the season on Friday, Nov. 6, at Bald Eagle Area. “These kids will come back and be ready to play,” Manning said. “I have no doubt we will be well-prepared to play Bald Eagle.”



NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015

That’s a wrap: Area teams close out regular season By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

The final week of the 2015 high-school regular season brings a Mid-Penn Championship within reach for State College and a renewal of the traditional Curtain Bowl rivalry game between Bellefonte and Bald Eagle Area, this year at BEA. Also, Penns Valley will host a strong Mount Union team, and Philipsburg-Osceola will end its season at home against Bellwood-Antis.


It is always a physical tussle between these two neighbors no matter how each team’s season has unfolded. This year, however, the game takes on extra importance because a win gives State College at least a share of the Mid-Penn Commonwealth Division championship. The Little Lions, after their determined, 21-7 win over Cumberland Valley are tied with the Eagles and Central Dauphin for the lead in the division with one game left to play for all three. SC has Mifflin, while Central Dauphin will square off with intradistrict rival C.D. East and Cumberland Valley will take on 1-8 Chambersburg. On paper, Central Dauphin seems to have the toughest road, but at this point, none of these teams can take anything for granted. Which brings up the Little Lions’ trip to Lewisburg Friday, Nov. 6, to take on the Huskies. Mifflin County has had very little fun this season, to say the least. The team is winless, and if anything stands out about their record, it’s the number of points the Huskies have given up. The lowest opponent total was in the 28-7 loss to Chambersburg on Oct. 9. Every other team has scored at least 41, with DuBois scoring 51, Cumberland Valley 60 and Harrisburg 75. Mifflin can score points — it had 41 against DuBois, 26 against Carlisle and 31 in the loss to Harrisburg, but keeping teams off the scoreboard has been the Huskies’ downfall. State College, on the other hand, has been steadily improving week to week, and that was made very clear in the win over Cumberland Valley. The Little Lions have been especially impressive on defense, and Jordan Misher and the rest of the offense are more than capable of putting up points. With this much at stake, SC will be looking to take control early and keep the pressure on all night. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. in Lewistown.


Except for a flip of the Penns Valley games, these two teams would have exactly the same record against essentially the same teams. Bellefonte beat Penns Valley and lost to non-league John Marshall, while BEA lost to Penns Valley and to non-league Moshannon Valley. Bellefonte is coming off a tough 20-14 overtime loss to

THE STATE COLLEGE Area High School football team is the lone Centre County team headed to the postseason. Chestnut Ridge. The Raiders missed a fourth quarter field goal, gave up an 80-yard pass-and-run that tied the game and then fell in overtime to the Lions. The loss was made even tougher because CR missed its extra point in overtime, and a touchdown and point would have given Bellefonte the win — and the Raiders got to the 6-yard line before being stopped on both third and fourth downs. BEA continued with its offensive woes in a 56-0 loss to Jersey Shore. The Eagles could not run the ball, and conversely could not stop the running of Jersey Shore’s all-everything Levi Lorson. Lorson ran 28 times for 258 yards and three touchdowns as the Bulldogs scored four first-half touchdowns and were not threatened from there. The Curtain Bowl clash between the Raiders and Eagles will not need complicated analysis. The team that can run the ball, avoid mistakes and turnovers and control the big play will have a decided advantage.


For this entire season, every week it seemed as if Penns Valley was ready to put it all together in a breakout performance. For a number of reasons, it hasn’t happened yet, but the Rams still have one more chance when 6-3 Mount Union comes into Spring Mills Friday, Nov. 6. It will not be easy, however. The Trojans come it on a four-game win streak and







Bellwood-Antis has won six of its last seven games, and the Blue Devils will be preparing for the playoffs against the Mounties in Philipsburg Friday, Nov. 6. For Philipsburg, there is no denying that this game will be an uphill struggle, and no matter what the outcome, it will be back to the planning boards in the off-season. The Mounties are young, and there are numbers at the lower levels ready to move up. So weathering the storm and restoring the football culture has been a weekly goal of this team.

with their only losses coming to very good football teams: Huntingdon, Bellwood-Antis and Moshannon Valley. Mount Union is all about running the ball. As a team, it has rushed for more than 2,000 yards in its nine games and scored 31 touchdowns on the ground. Running backs Daunte Martin and C.J. Bookwalter have combined for more than 1,500 of those yards and 23 of the touchdowns. Two quarterbacks, Quinten Posey and Devon Kuhstos, have thrown for just over 800 yards and 10 additional touchdowns, but that just keeps defenses honest. The Rams will have to slow down the Trojan running game as well as keep improving their own offense. On Oct. 30, Tyrone jumped all over PV early and coasted to a 34-8 win, but the Eagles did most of their damage through the air. Mount Union presents a different problem, although the Rams need to be just as wary. Andrew Tobias threw for 144 yards for the Rams in the Tyrone game, Ben Alexander caught five passes for 55 yards and Chase Collison ran for 69 yards and a touchdown. More of that, and a few defensive stops, and PV may have its breakout.

Handing out the grades: Penn State defeats Illinois By BEN JONES

UNIVERSITY PARK — A closer look at the grades following Penn State’s 39-0 win over Illinois on Oct. 31 at Beaver Stadium:


Thirty-nine points, two players with more than 100 yards of offense, three receivers with more than 50 yards to their name — it’s hard to find fault with a performance like that. Saquon Barkley had 84 yards on the ground and 58 yards receiving, as well a touchdown. Christian Hackenberg had a 21-of-29, two touchdown performance. Gene Lewis made a big-time grab over his defender, while Chris Godwin was reliable with a score and seven receptions on the afternoon for 76 yards. The 39 points scored by Penn State in this Big Ten game were the most since the Nittany Lions notched a 45-21 win against Purdue in 2013. Scoring on four of the first five second-half drives, Penn State’s offense blew the game wide open early in the game’s final 30 minutes of play. Five-of-13 on third down isn’t great, but with 23 first downs to Illinois’ 12 it is a solid figure. Penn State also went seven for seven in the red zone, with five of those drives ending in touchdowns. Hackenberg’s two touchdown passes move him into sole possession of second place in the Penn State annals for career touchdown passes with 45. He trails only Matt McGloin, with 46, for first place. Hackenberg also had 266 yards passing in his 19th 200-yard passing game, which is the most ever by a Penn State quarterback. He previously had been tied with McGloin for first place, with 18 200yard games. Additionally, Hackenberg’s 14-yard touchdown recep-

Penn State has scored in every quarter in consecutive


games for the first time since the season-ending game at Wisconsin in 2013 and the season opener in 2014 against Central Florida in Dublin. This is the first time in consecutive games in the same season since UCF and Kent State in 2013. It is the first time in consecutive Big Ten games since Northwestern and Iowa in 2012. It wasn’t perfect, but between a solid game on the ground with 120 yards rushing and a a 5.7 yards per gain average, it’s hard to get too picky when the result is 39 points.

When you give up zero points and only 167 yards of offense, it’s hard to complain. The Illini gained just 29 yards in the second half and six of their 15 drives all game went for negative yardage. After having given up just eight sacks all year, Penn State caught the quarterback in the backfield on four occasions, with Carl Nassib, Anthony Zettel and Austin Johnson all picking up a sack. Nassib is now half a sack away from tying Penn State’s single-season record. Parker Cothren and Curtis Cothran both combined for Penn State’s fourth sack of the night. The Nittany Lions registered nine tackles for a loss and Jason Cabinda led the way with seven tackles, with Johnson picking up five of his own. Penn State’s performance gives the program a sack in 31 consecutive games. That is the most consecutive games with a recorded sack since sacks became an official NCAA statistic in 2000.

State College spikers roll past Central Mountain, 3-0 By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH

STATE COLLEGE — State College freshman libero Katie Finlan’s game-opening serve against Central Mountain on Nov. 2 was a perfect ace just inside the back line. It was also a small indication of what was to come in the Little Lady Lions’ district AAA semi-final against the Lady Wildcats. Finlan’s was the first of eight aces State College slammed past the Central Mountain defenders during the first set alone in the Little Lions’ 3-0, (25-11, 25-10, 25-7), trampling of the Wildcats. SC added another four in the second set and five in the third, which, along with 22 total kills, were too much for out-sized Central Mountain to contend with. “Coach (Chad Weight) talked to me before the game,” Finlan said, “about how I was going to serve first and about how I needed to get every ball in. So I just focused a lot on every single ball, tried to get it to my spot, like the coach was telling me. I just concentrated on getting it there.” Finlan’s initial service netted State College a 4-0, first set lead that it extended to 7-1 after a kill by Kyla Irwin. Central Mountain came back with a run — one of the few it had all night — to pull to within 7-6, but another kill by Irwin, two CM errors and then three consecutive aces by Irwin put SC back in front 12-7. From there, kills by Jess Irwin, Keira Scharf and Annie Summers along with three additional aces by Taylor Kuruzovich propelled the Little Lions to the 25-11 set win. “We pride ourselves on being a tough serving team,”

head coach Weight said. “That’s one of the things that’s kind of our calling card.” State College handed out more calling cards in the second set. After Central Mountain took its only two-point lead of the night at 4-2, SC tied it at 4-4 after an ace by Emma Wilcock before running off seven of the next nine points to take an 11-6 lead. Central Mountain made it 11-7 on a kill by Emily Caprio, but then the Lions ticked off nine straight points to take a commanding 20-7 lead. Leah Henderson had two aces in that run, and Jess Irwin chipped in three kills as SC eventually took the set 25-10. “I think the team played really well,” Finlan said. “We definitely mixed it up a lot tonight. We kind of hit some different shots and did some different things, and it worked out really well.” The third set was more of the same for State College — 11 kills and five aces. This time, though, there was no Central Mountain run as the Lions took 17 of the final 19 points in the set and won it going away, 25-7. The 3-0 win in the match now sends No. 1 seed State College into the District 6 finals against No. 2 Hollidaysburg for the championship. “It set in that this is the postseason,” Kyla Irwin said, “and we are supposed to go out there with the intensity that we are going to win the game. Coach Weight always says, ‘Don’t play to not lose. Play to win.’ “I think that really spoke volumes today, and we just went out and had a lot of fun and hit the ball hard and had a lot of good passes. Everyone’s really been stepping up. “Can’t wait for the finals.”

Katrina: Competitive dancer and student at Penn State

UNIVERSITY PARK — It will be two weeks before Penn State takes the field at Beaver Stadium, as the Lions will enjoy a bye week before hosting Michigan for the annual White Out game and Senior Day for the home finale.


The second-longest tenured Big Ten head coach, Pat Fitzgerald is in his 10th season at the helm of Northwestern. Fitzgerald is the all-time winningest coach in Northwestern history and has led the program to five bowl game appearances as the sideline boss. Northwestern has appeared in the Alamo (2008), Outback (2009), Ticketcity (2010), Meineke Car Care (2011) and Gator Bowls (2012).


Northwestern defeated Nebraska, 30-28, in its last outing to improve to 6-2 overall (2-2 Big Ten) to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2012. The Wildcats enter the game after a bye week. Northwestern is averaging 186.1 rushing yards per game to rank third in the conference, while averaging a league-low 146.1 passing yards per game. Northwestern leads the Big Ten and ranks ninth nationally with just 4.5 penalties per game.


In his last six games, QB Christian Hackenberg has 12 touchdown passes, two rushing touchdowns, one touchdown reception, no interceptions and four games with at least 250 yards passing. He has passed for 1,415 yards in those six games. Hackenberg has not thrown an interception in his last 164 pass attempts, the longest streak of his career. Hackenberg has become the Nittany Lions career leader in passing yardage, touchdowns and completions. He needs just two more touchdown passes to become the Nittany Lions’ career leader.

Grades, from page 25 There should be more to say with a performance this good, but sometimes the final score speaks for itself.


Joey Julius with a kickoff out of bounds, Tyler Davis with a kickoff out of bounds and Julius missing two extra points are the need-to-knows for this one. The good news was Koa Famer getting a 57-yard return to open the second half and Davis hitting 28- and 42-yard makes to add six points to the total. It wasn’t a flattering outing for Penn State in an area that continues to be either really good or really bad. Daniel Pasquariello’s five punts for a 41-yard average and two inside the 20 was a nice outing in a game where punting wasn’t really highlighted by Penn State.


Though “other” hasn’t received a grade before, Penn State calling all three timeouts in the first half because of fourth-and-long formations was just too weird to ignore. John Donovan called a good game and Bob Shoop’s defense got the job done. Those timeouts, though, seemingly for no reason — can’t get them off the mind.

Nittany Notes, from page 28


Penn State owns a 191-95-3 mark against Big Ten Conference teams since the Nittany Lions first opposed Ohio State in 1912. The Nittany Lions began play as a member of the Big Ten Conference in 1993 and have a 113-68 mark. Prior to joining the conference, Penn State played 107 games vs. the current Big Ten alignment and was 79-25-3 in those games. Maryland and Rutgers joined the Big Ten on July 1, 2014.


The starting offensive line combination against Illinois marked the sixth different combination in nine games this season. Guard Brian Gaia is the only player to start on the line in all nine of the games.


Penn State’s defense allowed just 167 yards to Illinois. Prior to playing No. 1 Ohio State (429 yards) and Maryland (363 yards) the two weeks before, Penn State had held regular season opponents below 325 yards in 13

consecutive games. The 167 yards (37 rushing, 130 passing) allowed to Illinois were the fewest allowed by the Nittany Lions since holding Minnesota to 138 yards (37 rushing, 101 passing) in 2009. The Nittany Lion defense held Illinois to 12 first downs, the fewest since giving up just eight to Temple last season, and the fewest in a Big Ten game since allowing 12 to Michigan last season. The Penn State defense has been particularly stingy at home, having held its last 10 opponents and 12 of its last 13 to less than 300 yards of total offense, dating back to last season. Northwestern is the lone team to gain more than 300 yards against the Lions at home. Ohio State snapped another streak as well this season, as the Penn State defense had not allowed more than seven points in the first half of 12 consecutive games, including eight consecutive against Big Ten opponents. In 2014, Penn State ranked in the Top 10 in the FBS in fewest first downs allowed (second, 190), pass efficiency (second, 101.14), total (second, 278.7 yards per game), rushing (third, 100.5 yards per game), third down (sixth, 30.2) and scoring defense (seventh, 18.6 points per game).


In addition to leading the nation in sacks with 36

NOVEMBER 5-11, 2015 (four per game), Penn State also ranks fourth in the nation and tops in the Big Ten with 9.2 tackles for loss per game. Penn State has recorded at least five tackles for loss in 16 consecutive games. The 16th straight game with at least five tackles for loss is the longest streak for Penn State since a 38-game streak from 1997 to 2000. The Nittany Lions recorded nine tackles for loss against Illinois to mark the sixth game this season with at least nine TFLs in a game. The Penn State defense accumulated 10.0 tackles for loss against Ohio State, the most the Buckeyes had surrendered all season. Penn State leads the nation in both tackle for loss yardage (409) and sack yardage (284). Penn State’s 15 tackles for loss against Temple were the second-most in the country during the opening week, trailing only Colorado State, which racked up 16 against FCS-level Savannah State. Eleven different Nittany Lions were credited with at least an assist, led by Carl Nassib, Brandon Bell and Anthony Zettel with 2.5 tackles for loss each, while Trevor Williams had two. Nassib leads the country with 2.1 tackles for loss per game. On a roll, from page 23






Eagle 39-yard line, and after 10 methodical plays, Misher took it in from the 16. Cumberland Valley still had time to respond and drove into SC territory, but Ruffner halted that threat when he intercepted Ferguson on the 35-yard line and returned it all the way to the CV 31. From there, State College tried and missed a long field goal as the half ended with the Lions firmly in control. “Once we found out that they (CV) beat Central Dauphin and we could play for the Mid-Penn title, we were ecstatic,” Snyder said. “We came to this week and we worked hard every day. We practiced 100 percent and came out ready to play today.” After Cumberland Valley adjusted to the State College offense and Misher’s 92 first-half yards, the Lions found it tough going after halftime. But so did Cumberland Valley, and the Eagles had three touchdowns to make up. The teams battled back and forth through the third quarter before CV began its only scoring drive with a short field as the final quarter approached. The Eagles marched 46 yards in 10 plays with Joey Heikel taking it in from 4 yards out. The score was now 21-7, but there was only 11 minutes to play and they would have to score twice to tie. But they would not score at all. The Lion defense held them to just nine plays and a total of 4 yards for the rest of the game. And, when SC’s Johathan Sieghman intercepted a Ridge Bachman pass with under three minutes to play, things were essentially over. For the game, Cumberland Valley managed just nine first downs, 92 yards rushing on 37 attempts and just 45 yards passing. The Eagles came back the week before from a double-digit deficit to beat Central Dauphin late, but they never came close to repeating that against the Lions. “Our kids, they believe in what we’re doing,” Lintal said. “They believe in the big picture, and they believe in each other. To walk off this field with a 21-7 win over Cumberland Valley and with a great chance now to win the Mid-Penn, we are extremely excited to have these guys experience that.” The win for State College ties it for the Mid-Penn Commonwealth Division lead with Central Dauphin and Cumberland Valley, all with one loss. A win on Friday, Nov. 6, at Mifflin County will clinch at least a tie for the division championship, a feat that after an 0-2 start and a loss to CD seemed just a short time ago to be only a remote possibility.

Local Vietnam veteran presented with Quilt of Valor By SAM STITZER

CENTRE HALL — Traci Loner’s father, Paul Sampsell, of Centre Hall, served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Loner wanted to find a way to honor his service when she heard of an organization, the Quilts of Valor Foundation, which makes and presents quilts to veterans. On Oct. 18, about 40 of Sampsell’s family members and friends gathered in the Old Fort American Legion building for a presentation of a Quilt of Valor to the local veteran. Sampsell entered the U.S. Army on Nov. 18, 1965, when he was 20 years old. He was trained for jungle fighting in the New Mexico desert. He was deployed to Vietnam, making a 22-day journey by ship, which caused much seasickness among his fellow soldiers. Sampsell was stationed near the village of Dong Ha, south of the demilitarized zone. He served in many night patrols, designed to draw enemy fire, and reveal the enemies’ positions so Americans could return fire. During Sampsell’s 11-month stint, his 980-man battalion endured

oppressive jungle heat and a record-setting monsoon season that dumped 120 inches of rain on the region. Loner remembers her father sharing both good and bad stories of the war with her when she was growing up. “He’s an incredibly good storyteller, and he has an amazing sense of humor, which has really helped him cope,� she said. According to its website, Quilts of Valor was founded in 2003, when Catherine Roberts began the foundation in Seaford, Del. Her son Nathanael’s year-long deployment to Iraq provided the initial inspiration, and her desire to see that returning warriors were welcomed home with the love and gratitude they deserved provided the rest. Roberts hit upon the idea that linking quilt toppers with machine quilters in a national effort could achieve her goal of covering all returning service men and women touched by war. These wartime quilts, called Quilts of Valor, would be a tangible reminder of America’s appreciation and gratitude. Since 2003, QOVF has become a national grassroots

community service effort, connecting the homefront with with servicemen and veterans. Sampsell’s quilt was made by Jean Klaiber, of the South Carolina Shore Birds chapter of Quilts of Valor. Klaiber, who attended the presentation, spoke to the group. She said that QOVF gives quilts to all veterans, and she was glad that that many Vietnam vets are finally being recognized. She noted that 125,230 quilts have been presented by QOVF since 2003, with 727 of them being awarded during the last two weeks of October. Klaiber said each quilt has a label affixed to the back, with the names of the quiltmakers, the recipient and the date of the presentation. A local chapter of the QOVF has been formed, coordinated by Carolyn Foust, of Centre Hall. Foust is a quilter, and many of her family members, including her husband Steve, are veterans. She read about the QOVF in a quilting magazine and became interested in the organization. “I wanted to do something to promote Quilts of Valor locally,� she said. The Happy Valley Quilts of Valor chapter was formed, and now has about 25 members who meet twice a month to work on the quilts. Klaiber presented the quilt to Sampsell, who was very grateful and overwhelmed by the honoring gesture. “I just don’t know what to say, other than ‘Wow,’ he said. “A 20-year-old veteran couldn’t ask for anything more than this.� Loner mentioned the negative treatment that many Vietnam veterans received upon returning home from the war. “The ’60s were a different time, and a lot of people in our country couldn’t separate the soldier from the politics,� she said. “Many soldiers that came home from the Vietnam War were spat upon, cursed at and yelled at. “I want you to think of this as your welcome home present,� Loner said to Sampsell. “I love you, I’m proud to be your daughter and I’m very honored to say, ‘Welcome home, soldier.’�

Local schools to honor veterans Veterans Day has been observed on Nov. 11 since the date was reinstated in 1978, following a few years of being observed on the fourth Monday in October. The change of date for the observation, which held much significance for many Americans, caused an outcry that led to Congress returning the commemoration to its original Armistice Day date. First created to mark the armistice between the allies of World War I and Germany, a 1926 Congressional resolution named it Armistice Day for America. It became a national holiday 12 years later. But, the term Armistice Day was no longer appropriate after World War II broke out. In 1954, Congress passed a bill, signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, that Connie Cousins covers a wide proclaimed Nov. 11 as variety of events in Veterans Day. Centre County for Raymond Weeks, a the Centre County WWII veteran, is credGazette.

“Each school will have similar assemblies, but with individual touches as well,” said Jim Orichoski, Wingate Elementary school principal, who is in charge of the programs. “There will be lots of flags and the elementary school children will sing patriotic songs,” said Orichoski. “A presidential proclamation will be read that will be signed by President Obama. Some of the students have written essays regarding what Veterans Day means and a couple of students will read theirs.” Orichoski said the public is welcome to attend the program scheduled for the high school gym. Howard Elementary will be celebrating Veterans Day by holding an assembly. “In this assembly, all veterans of all branches of the military will stand and be recognized for their parts in protecting our

country,” said Nevin Pighetti, principal of Howard Elementary. “They will be recognized as to the branch they enlisted with and when that occurred.” A special group of students, the Howard Harmonics, will sing. “This is always a dynamic day, where the students can learn about the military branches and thank those veterans in attendance,” said Pighetti. At Mountaintop Elementary, the day will feature music, with many patriotic songs and other ways to honor veterans. Of course, there will be a lunch for the veterans at Mountaintop, also. Mary Beth Crago, a teacher at Mountaintop, said, “It is just a wonderful opportunity to honor our vets.” It is fantastic that these schools choose to honor our veterans in the ways they do. Each of us should remember on Nov. 11, and every day, to thank our veterans for their sacrifices.”

Broadway hit ‘Jersey Boys’ visits State College By HARRY ZIMBLER

UNIVERSITY PARK — “Jersey Boys,” the long-running Broadway hit, has arrived in State College. Shows continue through Sunday, Nov. 8, at Eisenhower Auditorium. Currently on a major North American tour, “Jersey Boys” is a tuneful show that captures the trials and tribulations of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons as they made their way from obscure street corners to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The show includes the performance of many of the Four Seasons’ greatest hits, including “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man.” Actor Keith Hines is enjoying his time on the road. He plays the role of Nick Massi, the bass guitarist who did most of the group’s musical arrangements. “Playing Nick Massi is a role I am really fond of,” Hines said. “He’s an interesting character and provides a challenge for an actor. He doesn’t say much, but when he speaks, he always says something important.” Growing up in Oklahoma, Hines was a long way from New York and Broadway. After college he moved to New York to pursue his theatrical and musical career.

“New York is the epicenter of the arts,” he said during a telephone interview. “What’s next for me? I don’t worry about it. Right now, ‘Jersey Boys’ gives me a nice vehicle. Performing is an act of faith. I have faith in my career longevity. I’ll just keep moving until the next thing comes along.” While many people have seen the movie “Jersey Boys,” Hines encourages them to see the stage performance. “Nothing can hold a candle to being in the same space where it’s actually happening,” he said. “Theater is a living, breathing art form. It all happens right in front of you. It’s magic you can only get in the theater.” While no touring show can perfectly recreate a Broadway production, Hines said that this version of the show loses very little from the original, at least in terms of the scenic elements. “There have been minor cutbacks,” he said. “But the show is still splendid to watch. The Broadway set was dialed back a little bit to accommodate the many different theaters in which the show will be presented.” Hines has been on the road for more than a year and will remain on tour for the rest of the “Jersey Boys” run that ends in Florida in June. When he returns to New York he expects to go back to his acting classes and auditions.

THE MUSICAL “Jersey Boys” continues through Nov. 8 at Eisenhower Auditorium.

Choral society opens 67th season with ‘Honor’ STATE COLLEGE — Now in his 17th year as the State College Choral Society’s music director, Russ Shelley has created a stirring and dramatic concert schedule for the ensemble’s 2015-2016 concert season, “Honor, Glory and Remembrance.” “I’m especially pleased with the sound of the choir this season, and our repertoire highlights each choir section in exciting ways,” Shelley said. “The three distinct approaches to the requiem text also provide the listener a wonderful and unique opportunity to compare how each composer chose to illuminate the text.” Launching the society’s 67th season will be the concert “Honor” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at Grace Lutheran Church in downtown State College. “Honor” features Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem” paired with Dan Forrest’s moving “Requiem for the Living,” two very different settings of a most famous text. Fauré’s piece is probably the best known of his large works and is renowned for the grace and purity of its melodies. It expresses not fear of death, but offers a message of tranquil solace to the bereaved. Forrest is a young American composer quickly rising to prominence among contemporary choral composers. He has already won several major awards and his compositions are regularly programmed by prominent choral conductors around the world. “Requiem for the Living” is a transcendent work with lyrical lines and is filled with drama, tranquility, hope and peace. Completed in 2013, it received more than 100 performances worldwide within a year of its composition. The choral society will perform with a

small orchestra and organ. A pre-concert lecture will be offered at 6 p.m. “Glory,” scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, at Grace Lutheran, will feature the inaugural performance of a new program, “Christmas with the Choral Society.” The choral society will join guest instrumentalists and members of local school choirs in renditions of favorite traditional Christmas carols and holiday songs, with a community carol sing concluding the onehour concert. The concert is free. In lieu of admission, audience members are invited to bring a canned good or non-perishable food item to benefit the State College Area Food Bank. This new program is sponsored by The Red Oak Foundation. Closing the season, the choral society will present “Remembrance” at 4 p.m., Sunday, April 10, at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. The centerpiece of the program will be the Pennsylvania premiere of Thomas Beveridge’s “Yizkor Requiem: A Quest for Spiritual Roots.” This work illustrates the common themes in the memorial services of both the Jewish and Catholic faiths. Beveridge describes his work as a “sacred bridge” between the two rituals. Joining the choral society will be a chamber orchestra, tenor/cantor Benjamin Warschawski, soprano Laura Choi Stuart and mezzo-soprano Heather Johnson. The composer will present a pre-concert lecture at 3 p.m. This premiere performance is being cosponsored by Mimi Barash Coppersmith and Barbara R. Palmer, with additional

PRADIT KULSHRESHTHA wants his Penn State anthem to unite cultures on campus.

Grad student aims to unify Penn Staters through musical collaboration UNIVERSITY PARK — “Together We Are One” is Pradit Kulshreshtha’s very own tribute to Penn State. Now he wants to make it everyone’s ode to the school. “With the changing times, there’s a need for Penn State to adapt new ways to capture the young brilliant minds worldwide, and music is something which requires no language to inspire and communicate,” said Kulshreshtha, a vocalist, songwriter, guitarist and master’s student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The India-born Kulshreshtha composed and wrote the tune, released in the summer, with support from a $1,000 Ardeth and Norman Frisbey International Student Award, given by Penn State Global Programs for “outstanding contributions to international understanding.” His vision is to make Penn State’s name known across the world as a school that empowers unity among students and faculty from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. It’s Kulshreshtha’s vocals on “Together We Are One,” but he’s also giving others a voice in the song’s progression. He seeks online feedback on the tune, hopes to produce a music video that will enlist the talents of multiple Penn Staters, and will share the song’s vocals and music for anyone to customize it to fit their musical tastes. “Even with a basic knowledge in audio production software, Penn Staters will be able to manifest a great-sounding version of the song without bearing any extra cost of hiring expensive artists,” he said. “More than anything, this music project will allow Penn State’s enriched diversity of samaritans to work together and stand in union to echo the university’s core values across the globe.”

UNIVERSITY PARK — A free public screening of “Felix and Meira,” the film that earned Canada’s lone submission to the 2015 Academy Awards, will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at the State Theatre in downtown State College. The screening will be preceded by the short film “Where is Joel Baum,” directed by Penn State faculty member Pearl Gluck, an assistant professor in the Department of FilmVideo and Media Studies. Along with the screenings, the evening features a question-and-answer session with co-star Luzer Twersky and Gluck. Twersky earned best actor awards for his role in “Felix and Meira” at both the Torino International Film Festival and the Amiens International Film Festival, and for his role in “Where is Joel Baum” at the Starz Denver Film Festival. “Felix and Meira” tells the story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another. Each lost in their everyday lives, they unexpectedly meet in a local bakery. What starts as an innocent friendship becomes more serious as the two find comfort in one another. Then, as Felix opens Meira’s eyes to the world outside of her tightknit Orthodox community, her desire for change becomes harder for her to ignore, ultimately forcing her to choose to remain in the life that she knows, or give it all up to be with Felix. “Where is Joel Baum” is the story of a tragic accident that causes unexpected circumstances in the home of a Hasidic rabbi in contemporary Brooklyn. There will be a reception between the screening of the two films. The event is sponsored by the Penn State College of Communications, the Penn State Jewish Studies program and Hillel Penn State.

CentrePeace cuts ribbon on new facility




STATE COLLEGE — CentrePeace, the prison ministry founded in 1994 by Marie Hamilton, is entering its 21st year of service to Centre County communities. The organization has just completed a move to a 17,000-square-foot facility that more than doubles the size of the organization’s retail sales space and storage. The Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County held a ribbon cutting Oct. 23 for the new facility, located in Bellefonte. CentrePeace is a nonprofit organization that sells used furniture and household items to support its services to local prisoners from Rockview and Benner Township correctional institutions as well as the Centre County Correctional Facility. “We are a unique organization in the fact that we do not receive any government funding,” said Thomas Brewster, executive director. “We are nearly totally self-sustaining. If we don’t sell furniture and household goods, we don’t exist. We receive a small amount from United Way. “Most of the work done on this facility was done by Amish workers,” noted Brewster, as he cut the ribbon. “I also want to thank Ameron Construction. They helped us to save thousands of dollars. They were very kind to us.”

HARRY ZIMBLER/For the Gazette

THE CHAMBER OF BUSINESS and Industry of Centre County recently held a ribbon cutting at the new CentrePeace facility. Pictured, from left, are Christie Pace, CBICC ambassador; Jennifer Myers, CBICC vice president; Thomas Brewster, CentrePeace executive director; Gary Hoover, Bellefonte Chamber of Commerce executive director; Paul Tobin, CBICC ambassador; and Joy Vincent Killian, Penn State Hospitality.

Focus on communication fundamentals to succeed And finally, after another question: “We got scared when he poked a hole in a waterbed with his scissor finger.” Vossoughian never quite caught on and I guess her producer didn’t either. Whether it’s a news anchor striving to be the story or a network focused on generating buzz from a controversial clip, the term “broadcast journalism” continues to seem like an oxymoron. We can avoid similar problems and increase our productivity by focusing on these fundamentals: Prepare. It’s clear the show’s producer, production team and on-air, ahem, talent spent little if any time preparing for the interview. Hendren’s Twitter handle includes an offensive term, which was posted as an on-screen graphic. His supposed support of Snowden consisted of tweeting once, back in 2013. Listen. Vossoughian didn’t listen to, not one, not two, but three answers in which Hendren referenced Edward Scissorhands. Good listeners commit to focusing on words, inflection and body language instead of thinking about what they’ll say next. Read and react. If Vossoughian figured out Hendren was trolling her after the first or second answer, she could have acknowledged it. When an on-air personality is vulnerable, we cut them slack. You can apply the same read-and-react approach. Be confident and make decisions based on what you see and hear.

Don’t you just love those news anchors who, like Ron Burgundy in the movie “Anchorman,” will read anything that’s on the teleprompter? The latest example comes courtesy of Yasmin Vossoughian, host of “The Daily Share Show” on HLN cable news network. Vossoughian interviewed Jon Hendren — thinking he was a defender of Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee who leaked classified information — for a segment about Snowden’s Twitter posts. Hendren repeatDavid M. edly answered VosMastovich is soughian’s questions president of as if he was defending MASSolutions Inc. Edward Scissorhands, For more the character played information, by Johnny Depp in visit www.mas the 1990 movie of the same name, not Edward Snowden. When asked about Snowden’s needing to seek asylum in Russia, Hendren answered: “I think to cast him out, to make him invalid in society, simply because he has scissors for hands, I mean that’s strange.” And this nugget to a follow-up question: “I mean people didn’t get scared until he started sculpting shrubs into dinosaur shapes and what not.”

Economic stimulants overdone and overused DANIEL NESTLERODE

Dan Nestlerode is the director of research and portfolio management at Nestlerode & Loy Investment Advisors in State College. He can be reached at danielj@

The monetary policies that were instituted during the recession of 2007-2009 have long outlived their usefulness. Long periods of very easy monetary policy have consequences that are detrimental to the economy and the investment markets. Yet, like trying to give up caffeine, returning to more standard or usual monetary policies and interest rates has become incredibly difficult for our central bankers and politicians. As identified by former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, among others,

long periods of zero-interest rate policies and easy money have damaged the longterm growth and productivity of the economy. Specifically, companies have undertaken financial engineering rather than capital investing in new plants, property and equipment so as to maintain a high level of liquidity, buy back shares and pay out large dividends to shareholders. The result is a very low level of worker productivity, which ultimately impacts our standard of living. This can be seen in the low level of worker participation in the economy and the decline of median family income since the last recession. Middle-income America has not participated in the anemic economic recovery, while the asset-deep upper class — homeowners and holders of stocks and bonds — have gotten significantly wealthier from the long-running monetary stimulus. Regardless of the income and wealth inequality, this is the policy of the current administration. These consequences can be traced back to a lack of sound fiscal

policies — Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Act, higher corporate tax rates and disruptive tax policies and increases in personal income taxes, all in the face of lower family income. While the administration and Congress have been unable to forge any helpful fiscal legislation, the burden of trying to stimulate the economy has fallen on the Federal Reserve and their monetary tools, including low interest rates, quantitative easing and easy credit policies. The middle and lower income classes suffer in these circumstances which can easily be seen by the nearly 50 million people who are now on food stamps and other welfare policies, the decline in median family income over the past eight years and the very low labor force participation. U6, the oldest and most useful measure of unemployment, shows around 10 percent of our worker bees are either unemployed or underemployed or just thoroughly discouraged and no longer looking for full-time employment. It feels like a return to the discredited economic policies

of the Nixon, Ford and Carter eras. To be sure, the eras are different, but the unemployment is nearly the same. Yet, hope is on the horizon. At the latest Republican debate, a number of presidential hopefuls espoused economic policies that include a healthy dose of fiscal reforms and a reduction in the size and scope of the federal government. Tax reductions, zero-based budgeting at the federal level, a reduction in the regulatory reach of government and regulatory rollbacks will get our economy growing not at 2 percent a year but closer to 4 percent or more. Of course, we will have to elect one of these characters and then make sure they work with a Congress that can keep its members on track. There is a lot of hope on the table. Yet until the fiscal problems are addressed, you can expect the Federal Reserve to continue monetary easing with all its attendant consequences. At least stock prices will remain high under the current policies.

MVEDP joins Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance PHILIPSBURG — The Moshannon Valley Economic Development Partnership Inc., an economic and community development organization serving the greater Philipsburg/Moshannon Valley region, has joined the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance, a coalition of labor, agriculture, manufacturing and other business interests that support private investment in pipeline and other energy infrastructure developments. MVEDP will work with PEIA members to educate lawmakers, members of their respective organizations and the public about the benefits of investing to modernize and create new energy infrastructure. “Because of the abundant natural resources available in Pennsylvania, our commonwealth has a unique opportunity

to become a global energy leader,” said MVEDP executive director Stan LaFuria. “In addition to providing an economic boost to residents, future generations will benefit from careers that will continue to offer competitive, family-supporting salaries. “However, in order to maximize the benefit to local economies, it is essential that we upgrade and build the reliable channels to transport our resources in a safe and efficient manner,” LaFuria added. “For that reason, we recently became members of the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance, a group that supports the development of energy infrastructure in our communities.” Through media and grassroots education efforts, PEIA and its members aim

Its purpose is to relieve existing unemployment in the Moshannon Valley by purchasing, owning, selling, leasing, remodeling and repairing properties to provide industrial sites, housing units and other facilities which will further the economic development and welfare of the community. In an effort to create new job opportunities for the people of the Moshannon Valley, the partnership works to help existing companies grow and expand, markets the area to outside firms interested in locating to the valley and assists entrepreneurs who want to start new businesses in the area.
