United Way holds kickoff event By G. KERRY WEBSTER kerry.ccgazette@gmail.com

STATE COLLEGE — The message wasn’t about opening wallets and donating cash during the 2016 United Way Campaign Kick Off event, held Sept. 20 at Housing Transitions in State College. The message, instead, was focused on more local involvement and increasing an already healthy partner network. Tammy Gentzel, executive director of the United Way, said the organization is now moving away from setting funding goals and instead will attempt to increase the number of partner agencies involved. She said funding and donations will continue to be crucial for the program; however, she noted those looking for the United Way thermometer to gauge the status of the donations won’t be able to find one. Instead, the long-standing staple mark of the organization will be replaced with the message, “What will you Live United for? “On behalf of the Centre County United Way Partner Network, I invite everyone in Centre County to live United,” she said. “Join us as we fight for the basic needs of every citizen in our community. We are excited for the future. We can make great things happen ... together.” Tracy Spalvins was in attendance at the press

conference. Always wanting to be a State College homeowner, she sought out the services of two United Way partner organizations in helping her find that dream home. She utilized the services of the State College Community Land Trust, a UW partner agency, which assists first-time home buyers. “Not only was I able to purchase a home through this program, but they provided me with homeowner education as well as pre-purchase budget counseling,” she said. “As a matter of fact, some of that budget counseling actually took place right here at Housing Transitions.” She said through this interaction with State College Community Land Trust, she was able to meet with another partner organization — Mid-Penn Legal Services. She said the people there walked her through her land lease and closing documents. “The State College Community Land Trust, MidPenn Legal Services and the Centre County United Way all helped me realize my dream of becoming a homeowner in the community where I work and live,” she said. “Their collaboration exemplifies the idea of Live United. I encourage everyone to help build a stronger community and support the Centre County United Way and its partner agencies.” United Way, Page 4

District investigates Instagram threat


By GEOFF RUSHTON StateCollege.com

STATE COLLEGE — State College Area School District officials said Sept. 18 they are confident there is no threat to its schools after an investigation into a threatening social media post on Sept. 16. State College Police investigated an Instagram post under the account name “scasdshooter” that showed images of the Columbine school shooting with the caption “inspiration for the event happening on Monday.” A middle school student called police Sept. 17 and admitted responsibility for the post, and said he meant it as a joke. Police confirmed through interviews with the student and his parents and review of the device used to make the post that he was responsible. They also confirmed he had no access to weapons and determined there was no credible threat TIM WEIGHT/For the Gazette

STATE COLLEGE — Schlow Centre Region Library staff reported that on Sept. 17 two men vandalized and damaged the library’s new parking gates. Surveillance video captured two individuals attempting to remove and ultimately breaking and rendering inoperable the new LED-lit gates in the parking lot at 211 S. Allen St. The incident occurred at 3:41 p.m., according to a post on the library’s Facebook page. The gates had just been installed last week as part of upgrades to simplify parking at the library. Library director Cathy Alloway said workers were able to reattach the gate and that it is now operational. She was not sure what the cost of the replacement would be, but noted that the damage to the gate caused the loss of several hundred dollars in weekend and after-hours parking revenue. The purpose of the gate, she said, is to preserve spaces for library patrons. Alloway also said she appreciated the effort of a community member who started a GoFundMe page to support repairs to the gate, but that the library was not looking to solicit funds for repairs. She said

Barron unveils ‘We Are All In’ campaign By GEOFF RUSHTON StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State President Eric Barron introduced the “We Are All In” campaign to the university’s board of trustees at its Sept. 16 meeting. The year-long effort will focus on diversity and inclusion at Penn State. “(We Are All In) is focused on what the true meaning of ‘we are’ is,” Barron said, “and regardless of what you think you see, I earned the right to be at Penn State.” The university will host a We Are All In kickoff event Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7:15 p.m. on Old Main Lawn, featuring a multimedia presentation/video projected on the face of Old Main. An “All In” calendar is now online, featuring events centered on diversity and inclusion in addition to events from both professionals and student groups showcasing different cultural traditions. “You wander around this campus, you see someone who’s very different looking than you are,” Barron said, “and what should come to your mind is that individual earned the right to be here because they got good grades and they worked hard and they were admitted to Penn State because that is our admissions process. So regard-

less of what you think you see when you see me, we earned — I earned — the right to be at Penn State.” A Student Diversity Panel was held at the Faculty Senate meeting Sept. 6, and Barron said each faculty senate meeting this year will include a diversity and inclusion segment. The We Are All In campaign will also include a final capstone project, which will constitute a permanent tribute to our commitment to being all in. “We have a group led by Marcus Whitehurst and representing groups from across the university to consider a broad set of ideas — many, many ideas — on how it is that we pay tribute to our history and reflect our hopes and plans for the future of Penn State,” Barron said, “and I think what they — what they accomplish will have a lasting impact on the university.” Barron highlighted an example of what a We Are All In capstone might look like, such as putting words on “some permanent structure” that reflected history and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. “One of the ones that’s got to be there is ‘We play all or we play none,’” Barron said, referring to the story the “We Are” chant is based on. Trustees responded positively to the

PENN STATE President Eric J. Barron recently unveiled the “We Are All In” campaign. campaign plans, commending Barron for enhancing bottom-up leadership from student organizations rather than forcing top-down ideas. “President Barron, as you know, diversity and inclusion is such an important topic on campus, and I look at this and

can’t help but feel excited,” student trustee Luke Metaxas said. “I think students are going to feel the same way. Thank you for setting such a strong message that this university is committed to unity. I agree with you, I think it absolutely will have a lasting impact, so thank you.”

Penn State president, executives get pay hikes By GEOFF RUSHTON StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State President Eric Barron’s base salary will remain among the highest in the nation for public university presidents after the school’s board of trustees approved a 2.25 percent merit increase based on an annual performance review. The increase brings Barron’s annual salary, retroactive to July 1, to $818,004. Barron and Ohio State President Michael Drake were tied for highest base sal-

ary among public leaders with $800,000 in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s most recent review of public executive compensation as of 2014-15, though Barron was 11th when total compensation evaluated. Drake received a raise in November 2015 to move his base pay to $816,000, although his total compensation was more than $1 million. Barron did not receive a raise in 2015, but did get a lump-sum bonus of $24,000. His pay increase this year was based on “an excellent performance,” in the past year according to the board’s Committee

on Compensation. He received a “360-degree evaluation … in which 100 people were asked to complete the assessment, taking into account the president’s goals and objectives and his performance in light of those established goals,” according to the university. “The 360 process is designed to provide the board with additional context and information from internal and external stakeholders.” The Committee on Compensation also reported that pay increases were approved for other Penn State executives:

■ Provost and executive vice president Nicholas Jones’ salary was set at $530,592, an increase of $19,228 ■ Senior vice president for finance and business David Gray’s salary was set at $490,440, an increase of $19,872 ■ Craig Hillemeier, Milton S. Hershey Medical Center dean and CEO and senior vice president for health affairs, had his annual salary set at $935,004, an increase of $84,996 ■ Athletic director Sandy Barbour’s salary was set at $731,808, an increase of $10,012.

ident of Centre County to join this network.” Stevenson said some success has already been realized. “From Feb. 1 of this year to today, we have already enjoyed great success by raising almost $40,000,” she said. “Included in this amount are businesses who act as pacesetters for the campaign; our pacesetters raised $173,500. Also included are the staff and volunteers of the 35 service providers who are the core of the Centre County United Way partner network. Despite continued cuts to their own funding and an incredibly difficult year that included no state funding for over nine months, they raised $50,000. They are a true testament to the value of United Way funding.” The Centre County United Way office is located at 126 W. Pine Grove Road in Pine Grove Mills.

The United Way Campaign co-chairs for 2016 are Chris Hosterman, a financial adviser from Wienken Wealth Management and Fran Stevenson, a United Way Partner Network volunteer. “As co-chairs of this year’s campaign, (Fran) and I are focused on increasing the size of our partnership by recruiting more volunteers, more advocates and more donors,” said Hosterman. “We are here today to invite every employee and every res-

Penn State approves new $144 million laboratory StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State board of trustees on Sept. 16 approved final plans and a $144 million budget to demolish Fenske Laboratory at the University Park campus and build a new, state-ofthe-art research and instructional laboratory at the same site. Funds will come from borrowing, reserves for capital improvement and gifts. Seven years ago, Fenske, which houses the chemical engineering department, was singled out and labeled “substandard and a threat to our continued accreditation” by ABET, which accredits university engineering programs. The building isn’t fit to be considered the core of scientific research at Penn State, but it also isn’t feasible to renovate the existing laboratory, so the building will instead be replaced. The Fenske site is near the intersection of Curtin and Shortlidge roads. Both chemical and biomedical engineering will be included in the site with

room for growth in the future. The new 193,000-square-foot building will include two laboratories, classrooms, a large lecture hall, group study rooms, conference rooms, a Knowledge Commons location and office space. Biomedical engineering is currently housed in Hallowell Building, which was deemed too small for the fast growing discipline and too far from other scientific engineering centers on campus In campus master planning, a “greenway” was established that includes the site of Fenske. Building design will reflect this policy. Other site work will connect the building to the campus sidewalk network and preserve “significant existing trees.” The building will also feature a first-floor green roof, and its design will allow for future expansion to this campus location. Those with labs and offices currently in the Fenske building will be relocated throughout construction. Ford Stryker, associate vice president for physical plant, said Sept. 15 that the target date for completion is December 2018.

SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 Judge, from page 1 The Paterno estate and former coaches Jay Paterno and Bill Kenney are suing the NCAA, its president, Mark Emmert, and former executive committee chair Ed Ray. The lawsuit, filed in 2013, claims commercial disparagement and defamation, citing the use of the Louis Freeh report commissioned by Penn State in the NCAA’s consent decree for sanctions with Penn State related to the school’s handling of reports of child sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky. The consent decree was replaced and most sanctions repealed or ended early. The university is a nominal defendant in the case. The plaintiffs say the report and sanctions resulted in damage to commercial interests and values and harmed the former assistant coaches’ ability to find similar work. Leete denied the NCAA’s objections that the Paterno request for documents related to the repeal of sanctions was not timely and was irrelevant to the case. He wrote that the NCAA was served with the request a full month before Leete’s discovery deadline of April 29. He also ruled the documents are relevant because the Paternos’ claim of defamation requires proof of malice. “Integral to the issue of malice is that Plaintiffs must prove Defendants had knowledge of, or acted in reckless disregard of, the falsity of the statements made in the Consent Decree,” Leete wrote, adding that the NCAA continues to defend the validity of the consent decree, even though it was repealed. “Information related to the reasoning behind the repeal of the Consent Decree is therefore reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence.” Leete ruled in March that third-party subpoenas could be served to members of the NCAA Committee on Infractions for documents related to the repeal of the consent decree. Much of Leete’s Sept. 19 opinion and order was devoted to the legal basis for jurisdiction in Centre County Court. Emmert and Ray had argued that the court did not have personal jurisdiction over them. Leete ruled that the court does have jurisdictions, citing legal precedent and explaining that the brunt of the damage alleged by the Paterno estate likely occurred in Pennsylvania. Leete did, however, grant an NCAA motion to amend its answer to the Paterno lawsuit to cite the dismissal of a federal lawsuit brought by Kenney and Jay Paterno as “an affirmative defense.” That defense would assert that the Paterno-NCAA lawsuit is re-litigating matters that have already been decided by another court. Leete granted the motion, but said he was not addressing the merits of the argument.

Jana Marie Foundation makes powerful presentation to State College Rotary Club By HARRY ZIMBLER correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — Suicide and mental illness in youth remains a serious issue in Pennsylvania and the nation. The Jana Marie Foundation, led by Jana’s sister Marisa Vicere, recently made a startling presentation to the Downtown State College Rotary Club. Vicere presented statistics that show how serious the problem is today and how it can grow if it is not addressed. According to Vicere, one in five children suffer from some mental illness and 79 percent of those who do do not receive help. Half of all mental illness cases start by the age of 14. As a result, suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15 to 24 year olds. For the fourth year in a row, Centre County government has declared September as Suicide Prevention Month in Central Pennsylvania. “We are hoping to bring light to mental health issues and ignite conversations,” said Vicere. She noted that there are many ways that an individual can contribute to the effort to lower suicide rates. Beginning Sept. 10, there will be a series of events that will provide information on the causes of suicide and how to best address it in local communities. “An Evening of Hope, Healing, and Remembrance” will

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State Police received a report of an aggravated assault that occurred near the Bryce Jordan Center on Sept. 17. According to a timely warning from the university, at around 4 p.m. an unknown male allegedly yelled obscenities at and physically assaulted another man, whom police said was a visitor to campus, near Gate B of the Jordan Center. Police said the alleged attack caused “bodily injury,” to the visitor. The suspect is described as a white male, age 18 to 20 and 6-foot-3 with blonde hair. He was wearing a white Tshirt with cut-off sleeves and what appeared to be a Team USA logo on the front. Witnesses described the suspect as having a muscular build and scars or scratches on the right side of his back. — StateCollege.com Threat, from page 1 In a letter to families and staff, Superintendent Bob O’Donnell said the district would follow its safety protocols and take extra precautions beginning Sept. 19. “In addition to the School Resource Officers who are permanently assigned to our secondary schools, and the routine daily patrols and visits to all schools, there will be increased visibility of police officers throughout all schools,” O’Donnell wrote. O’Donnell said that students who make threatening comments are kept out of school until police and the district are comfortable that all students will be safe. An evaluation will be made before considering if the student can return to school, and O’Donnell said he will be directly involved in meetings about the student involved with this most recent incident. “Please know that my wife and I have three children who attend SCASD schools, and I would not permit us to open schools if the police or our administrative team believed that safety was a concern,” O’Donnell wrote. O’Donnell said the family of the student involved has been “very cooperative with the authorities and school district.”

Penn State police Student dies in crash investigating assault


UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State board of trustees granted Al Clemens and Keith Eckel trustee emeritus status Sept. 16 based on committee recommendation. Both Clemens and Eckel were trustees during the 2011 Sandusky scandal fallout. Clemens was appointed to the board by Gov. Tom Ridge in 1995. Although his term expired in 2012, he remained a member of the board in absence of another appointment from Gov. Tom Corbett, until he resigned in March 2014. Upon his resignation, Clemens expressed both pride in helping Penn State grow during his 18-year tenure and remorse in firing Joe Paterno in what he called “a rush of injustice.” He is the only trustee who has said publicly he made a mistake voting to fire Paterno. Eckel received the Master Farmer award from Penn State in 1982. He is also a former board member of the Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association, the Pennsylvania Agricultural Land Preservation Board and the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development. He served as president of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau for 15 years and was also vice president of the Pennsylvania Council of Cooperative Extension Associations. Clemens and Eckel will join the current 29 trustees emeriti on the board. For the next six years, they will be invited to attend public meetings, but not executive sessions, standing committees or any meetings where attorneyclient privileged discussions are held, according to bylaws. After six years, a trustee emeritus will maintain his or her title but will not maintain any other privileges.

Penn State is no longer recycling Styrofoam By BECCA DEGREGORIO Special to the Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — The nearly 5,000 recycling bins on Penn State’s University Park campus collect all kinds of materials: bottles, cans, paper, but no longer polystyrene, which is often referred to as Styrofoam. The school has recently decided not to recycle polystyrene for a slew of economic reasons, one being the fall of oil prices. Lydia Vandenbergh is an associate director of employee engagement with the Sustainability Institute of Penn State. She said the decision to start recycling university dining containers and packaging around the year 2000 was appropriate then. “At that time, oil was $150 a barrel so it made sense economically,” said Vandenbergh. “Starting in about 2009, the oil prices dropped and now it’s not economical to do that so we had to make the switch.” The university has not successfully recycled any of its polystyrene since 2012. The material is cheap to buy new and few facilities in the state accept polystyrene for recycling. Joanne Shafer is the deputy director of the Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority, where two years’ worth of Penn State’s polystyrene sat with no place to go. “Expanded polystyrene is a material that can technically be recycled because it is a type of plastic, but it is a very difficultto-recycle material,” said Shafer. “We have not been able to find a ready market for expanded polystyrene or polystyrene at all quite frankly here in Centre County or anywhere actually in Pennsylvania.” In 2015, that final load of Styrofoam was laid to rest at a landfill in Elk County along with Penn State’s grand idea of recycling it in the first place. Even when oil prices are high, polystyrene — which is made of oil — is much cheaper then alternatives like compostables. And the high oil prices mean it is economically feasible to recycle it, even though recycling it is difficult. But when

oil prices drop, so does the cost of new polystyrene. When new foam and recycled foam reach the same price, manufacturers almost always buy the new stuff. And the bottom falls out of the polystyrene recycling business. Tim Skammer has been in the scrap business for 23 years and now runs a plastic brokerage business with Accurate Recycling Corporation. Aside from oil prices, he said the major costs of recycling polystyrene come from how difficult the material is to work with. “The reason that I don’t recycle a lot of it, nor do I talk to my customers about it is because it’s usually contaminated with food,” said Skammer. “It’s very light. The remanufacturing of polystyrene leaves a pretty significant carbon footprint, and it’s primarily a single-use product.” Penn State uses an estimated 35 to 40 tons of foam per year according to analysis from the university’s Office of Physical Plant. The low cost of expanded polystyrene can be attributed to the fact that it’s 95 percent air. That means it’s pretty inefficient to transport. A ton of garbage may fill one tractor trailer, while a ton of polystyrene may fill four. Just transporting it to a recycling facility requires more cash and gas than most recovered commodities. “The things that make it on the front end easier and cheaper to transport in,” said Shafer, “which is lightness — it’s mostly air surrounded by a polymer — those are the same things that make it difficult to recycle at the end.” In a recent analysis comparing costs of preparing recyclables and transporting them to market, Office of Physical Plant supervisor Nadine Davitt found that in recent years traditional recyclables have cost the school around $67 per ton, while polystyrene costs $850 per ton. When considering Penn State’s history with the hard-to-recycle commodity, Shafer said there’s a moral to the story. “The road to zero waste starts at the beginning, not the end,” said Shafer. She says in order to promote sustain-

PENN STATE’S recycling bins still list “Styrofoam,” but the university recently announced it will no longer be recycling it. ability, more compostables should come onto campus instead of struggling on the back end with difficult recyclables. Penn State has experimented with compostable containers before, but Jeremy Bean, of the Sustainability Institute, said a complete switch would take a lot of financial planning on the school’s part since compostable containers are at least twice as expensive as polystyrene ones. “Cost here, it’s not like a restaurant where you can say, ‘OK, I’ll up the cost of my meals by a certain amount fairly easily to absorb that cost from the supplier,’” Bean said, “because that means a tuition increase, a room and board increase, and we all know the higher education issues with those prices going up and what that does to our students.” He also says another difficult, but es-

sential, step for any change in recycling policy to truly work is education. Polystyrene and compostable containers have both been improperly disposed of by students and staff. “Our population turns over almost completely every four years as far as students go so that’s a continual education,” said Bean. “That’s the difficulty in the capture piece, and, again, it’s not that people don’t want to do the right thing, it’s just they have to learn it, and that takes a while.” But Bean agrees that chipping away at the amount of polystyrene coming onto campus is important. He will be organizing a Sustainable Operations Council this summer to bridge the gap between those working in sustainability and finance at Penn State.

PSU conference to focus on child trauma in schools By ELLIS STUMP Special to the Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — One of every four students in the United States shows up to school each day shouldering the burden of a traumatic event that affects their learning habits and behaviors. Child welfare researchers, educators and advocates will be coming together to study and strategize around this relevant concern at Penn State’s Fifth Annual Conference on Child Protection and Well-Being being held Oct. 10 to 11 at the Nittany Lion Inn on the University Park campus. The theme for this year’s conference is “Trauma Informed Schools: How child maltreatment prevention, detection, and intervention can be integrated into the school-setting.” According to Jennie Noll, director of Penn State’s Network on Child Protection and Well-Being and professor of human development and family studies, schools provide a unique opportunity for prevention of child maltreatment. “School is where children are taught at a very young age how to protect themselves, how to talk to adults about things that may be bothering them and how to get help when they need it,” she said. “Protecting children is the responsibility and the work of everyone in the community, and teachers, school counselors and administrators, if they are aware of the unique issues, can be the front line.” Dedicated efforts to incorporate child abuse identification into the education system are currently underway, initiated by state legislation that has named teachers primary mandated reporters of suspicion, and assisted by the schools taking on the task. By hosting programs and training their staffs, schools can prepare their facul-

ty and take an active role in prevention, which is the first of four conference session topics. Following the discussion of prevention, session two shifts focus to the developmental influences of trauma on children, across the social, emotional, behavioral and cognitive plains. Session three zooms out from the campus to the caucus to cover policy change considered pivotal to this movement, and session four examines cooperation between schools and communities. The conference will wrap up with a culminating panel on Oct. 11. This is where, through open deliberation, Noll hopes to sketch and ultimately concrete the steps moving forward in regards to research, policy and schools. “Encouraging the audience to participate is what sets our conference apart from the rest. The audience will include cutting-edge researchers in both prevention and treatment, teachers and school administrators, educative policy makers and students, all brought together to form a creative discourse. This provides an exciting arena to start a conversation,” Noll said. This is a conversation everyone is invited to join. For more information about the conference and to register, go to www. protectchildren.psu.edu/content/2016conference. Deadline to register is Sept. 23. The Network on Child Protection and Well-Being was created to advance Penn State’s academic mission of teaching, research and engagement in the area of child maltreatment. Since the network was launched in fall 2012, its conferences have established a concrete frontier of understanding child maltreatment through advanced research. It is a part of the Social Science Research Institute at Penn State. For more information on the network, visit protectchildren.psu.edu.

Moore gets new post at PSU By GEOFF RUSHTON StateCollege.com

Zack Moore, previously assistant vice president for governmental affairs, was approved as Penn State’s new vice president for government and community relations in a unanimous vote by the school’s board of trustees Sept. 16. Moore replaces Mike DiRaimo, who led the office since 2012 and stepped down to transition to retirement. DiRaimo remains on staff in an advisory role through the end of the year. As Penn State’s chief lobbyist, Moore will oversee communications between the university and federal, state and local governments. The office develops legislative strategies and policy positions, monitors legislative proposals that may impact the university and its constituents and advises university leadership. “I am extremely pleased that Zack will be our chief advocate in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C., moving forward, as there is no better champion for Penn State,” President Eric Barron said in a statement. “His thorough understanding of the university’s needs and interests will

allow him to hit the ground running, and his keen insight into government and the legislative process, as well as the relationships he has built over many years, will serve Penn State well in the years ahead.” A 1994 Penn State graduate, Moore reZACK MOORE turned to the university as director of federal relations after working as senior legislative director for former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum. Prior to that he was a Capitol Hill staff assistant to Rep. George Gekas and later legislative director for Rep. Charles Canady, and he founded a government consulting practice. “As an alumnus of this great institution, I couldn’t be more proud to represent my alma mater before the federal, state and local governments,” Moore said. “I am truly passionate about the value that Penn State brings to our community, to our state and our nation, and I appreciate the trust that President Barron and the board have placed in me.”

STATE COLLEGE — The former Abercrombie & Fitch location at 134 S. Allen St. will soon have a new seasonal tenant. Halloween City is setting up shop in the 9,000-square-foot downtown storefront. A division of retail chain Party City, the outlet offers discount prices on Halloween costumes, decorations and party supplies. The State College location figures to be a popular destination for Penn State students, providing a shop for Halloween ap-

parel within walking distance of campus and downtown apartments. Management could not be reached to confirm an opening date. As of Sept. 20, “Coming Soon” and “Now Hiring” signs were displayed in store windows, and inventory was visible inside. Abercrombie & Fitch closed in 2015. Industrial-Commercial Realty lists rent on the building at $12,750 per month. Another Halloween store also will be returning to the Centre Region this season. Spirit Halloween will be opening soon in Northland Center next to Giant, according to the company’s website.

SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016

Foliage display may suffer in parts of Pennsylvania UNIVERSITY PARK — Drought conditions in parts of Pennsylvania, particularly in the north-central region, are likely to dampen the fall foliage display, according to a forest ecologist in Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences. On Sept. 6, the state Department of Environmental Protection added four more counties to its very dry list, bringing the number of counties under drought watch to 38. In those areas, foliage color may turn earlier and be less brilliant than usual, warned Marc Abrams, professor of forest ecology and physiology. “I believe the summer drought in central, northern and eastern Pennsylvania has been severe enough to cause a slight to moderate decline in the quality of fall colors this year due to a decline in physiological activity during that time,” he said. “This also applies to areas of New England and the northern Great Lakes states.” Some parts of the state experienced a series of rainstorms in mid-August that may have alleviated the situation somewhat for trees and crops, although many counties are experiencing rainfall deficits in excess of 6 inches for the year.

“Because of those showers, most trees are going into the fall season in fairly good physiological condition,” Abrams said. “What we need, however, is for cool to cold temperatures to arrive by early to mid-October to bring out the best colors that are possible this year. If it stays warm and we have wet conditions through the middle of October, that would be another negative for fall colors.” For three decades, Abrams has studied how seasonal precipitation and temperature influence timing and intensity of fall colors in central Pennsylvania. “We believe that clear, bright days, low but not freezing temperatures, and dry but not drought conditions promote the best fall colors,” he said. Cooler temperatures signal deciduous trees to stop producing chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for photosynthesis, he explained. The chlorophyll breaks down and disappears, unmasking other leaf pigments. These other pigments — called xanthophylls and carotenes — are what create the yellows and oranges seen in the leaves of yellow poplar, hickory, sycamore, honey locust, birch, beech and certain maples. After chlorophyll production stops, trees also produce another pigment in their leaves called santhocyanin, according to Abrams. The anthocyanins create the brilliant reds and purples seen in maple, sassafras, sumac, black gum and purple oak. The amount of anthocyanin produced each year is related to starch levels in the tree. Trees often produce less starch during droughts, such as the one the state is experiencing.

PENNSYLVANIA FORESTS are amazingly resilient. Year after year — despite often very dry conditions such as this year — there are places where the trees show good color, but perhaps not great color. “One thing that I have been impressed with in my 20 years of gauging foliage is the resiliency of the display,” Abrams said. “Year after year, despite the conditions, there are places where the trees show good color, but perhaps not great color.

Hero from Centre County remembered on Sept. 11 Recently, the nation marked the 15th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, and I wanted to honor the memory of one of the victims of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon, a local young man, Lt. Jonas M. Panik of the U.S. Navy Reserve. Sadly, I never met Jonas. However, he and I had a lot in common: We were both born in Centre County — he in State College, me in Bellefonte. We’re both Roman Catholic. He went to Bellefonte High School, and my father taught at BHS. Lt. Panik and my husband both graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy; Jonas graduated on my birthday, June 14. Jonas and I shared the same career path within the defense intelligence arena. Finally, Lt. Panik and I were both at work inside the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. My husband and I live in northern Virginia, and Sunday I again placed white roses on the bench that bears his name at the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial, sat for a bit, and said a prayer for him and for our nation. A small gesture, I know, but it’s the least I can do to honor a hero and patriot from Centre County with whom I had so much in common. I share these thoughts because I believe it is important to remember Jonas’s sacrifice, dedication to his country and the inspiration his life and his memory can have on the children and adults of Bellefonte and Centre County. He’s a hometown hero. It’s the least we can do. Carroll Smith Lee Arlington, Va

Should we or shouldn’t we? By PATTY KLEBAN StateCollege.com

As I was gathering my thoughts to write this week’s column, I kept coming back to the old saying “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.” Take the case of Colin Kaepernick, the professional football player who has created a firestorm of controversy by refusing to stand during the national anthem before NFL games. His stance on not standing is that this country is not worthy of his respect because of what he views is oppression of segments of our population. Since making his position known, other players and coaches from different sports at a variety of levels (professional, college and even high school) have either stood with him in his refusal to stand or have gone emphatically in the other direction with elaborate displays of patriotism. Some teams and coaches are telling their players who won’t stand that they won’t play. While this controversy has taken on a life of its own, I’m not seeing real change come out of the movement. Mr. Kaepernick, who makes millions and millions of dollars playing a game for entertainment and whose lifestyle in terms of house, travel and cars is the envy of many, could do a lot to support programs that directly work to improve the lives of those he views as oppressed. While I disagree with his decision and believe he could use his celebrity to a better end, I believe that he has the right to do it. It would be frightening to live in a country where people aren’t able to exercise free speech. In my opinion, just because he can, doesn’t mean he should.

It’s like going to an all-you-careto-eat buffet. Just because you can eat until you stuff yourself, it’s probably not a good idea. Take the downtown parking lot. Pulling into the kiosk lot across from Panera recently, I noted there was a very large, very visible, sandwich board style sign indicating a temporary rate hike, identified as “special event parking.” Like so many other local entities, the parking office has every right to jack up their prices for the guests and visitors to our area when they come in for events like the Arts Fest and Penn State football games. But should they? Coincidentally, there is no big sign to tell patrons that there is no fee to park in that lot on weekdays before 10 a.m. and no fee to park on Sundays. Although the kiosk itself has hours and rates posted, it takes your money during those hours if you miss the tiny notice (or are new to the somewhat confusing system and are focused on the instructions). I can’t tell you the number of people that I have stopped from paying in that lot during the free parking hours. Similarly, seeing people pulled over on the bypass on the way into town on football weekends is becoming routine. I have seen up to three cars pulled over at once (by three different police officers) in the stretch of road between Boalsburg and the stadium exit. I noted it again last month on move-in weekend for Penn State students. Speeding is against the law and people should be pulled over for it, but the timing and inconsistency of the enforcement raises some questions. While people can be pulled over for speeding at any time, should we focus on those weekends? Welcome to Happy Valley.

In many instances, the cans and the shoulds go hand-in-hand. I am teaching a new-to-me course at Penn State this semester and am already seeing the can-but-should debate taking place. In previous courses that I have taught, I took attendance. The class size was smaller and we did a lot of group work so accountability was key. I have more than 130 students in this new course so an attendance sign-in sheet just didn’t seem to fit, and asking students to buy the clicker just for attendance didn’t seem right. Instead, I am using randomly chosen days to have an inclass assignment. I am already seeing students who are repeatedly taking the option on class attendance. At the end of the semester when the inevitable questions and complaints about final grades come in, it will be a reminder of “you probably shouldn’t have.” From what we post on social media to the conduct of our presidential candidates, the freedoms that we are granted in this country do not prohibit us from saying or doing things that we probably shouldn’t — even though we technically have the right to do it. Sometimes we don’t for moral or religious reasons. Other times we don’t, even though we can, because the consequences — intended or unintended — outweigh our right to do or say or act. While many applaud Mr. Kaepernick’s decision to take a stand against racism and to use his public profile to bring attention to the issue, it seems that the outcome has been to bring attention to Mr. Kaepernick. There are real things that he — that we — can and should be doing collectively to address this and other issues in our communities.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


How does having a specific month labeled “Breast Cancer Awareness” help in the fight against breast cancer? For one thing, it simply points a highlighting finger at it. For years now, women have been urged to do breast self-exams and get yearly mammograms. Despite that, there are many women who get their diagnosis late or when their options are limited. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 247,000 Connie Cousins women will be diagcovers a wide nosed with breast canvariety of events in cer each year and more Centre County for than 40,000 will die from the Centre County the disease.

Treatment options are pointed out as well during this campaign. It is important to note that breast cancer also affects men. Much has been accomplished through various programs, including those run by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The many products that have the familiar pink ribbon on them proclaim that the company manufacturing

the product is donating a percentage of its sales to breast cancer research and treatment. In spite of all the money being spent on research and treatment, the most important factor in preventing death from breast cancer is still early detection. That can only happen if women listen, learn and follow up on the advice from their doctors. That includes performing monthly breast exams and reporting anything unusual. As you do the exams faithfully, you will recognize what is normal in your own breasts. Some things to look for are: ■ Any unexplained change in the size or shape of the breast ■ Dimpling anywhere on the breast ■ Unexplained swelling of the breast or shrinkage of the breast (especially if on one side only) ■ A nipple that is inverted ■ The skin becomes scaly, red or pitted ■ Asymmetry of breasts (although many women have one breast that is slightly larger than the other) ■ Any discharge from the nipple Remember that eight out of 10 breast lumps are not cancerous, but any symptoms need to be checked and identified so that treatment, if needed, can be started sooner rather than later. Once a diagnosis of cancer has been made, then what? Much is written about staging the cancer and what that means. According to the National Breast Cancer Organization, there are four stages of breast cancer. At Stage 1, the cancer cells are confined in a very limited area. Stage 2 and 2A is still an early stage, but shows evidence that the cancer has begun to spread. It is still contained to the breast area and is generally effectively treated. Stage 3A, B and C is considered advanced cancer, with evidence of cancer invading surrounding tissues near the breast. Stage 4 indicates the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Those with a breast cancer diagnosis are no longer subjected to extensive scans and tests, as was once the norm. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network put out new guidelines in 1998. The most extensive testing is now commonly reserved for patients with locally advanced disease, such as someone with a large tumor affecting several lymph nodes or one whose long-term physical symptoms suggest a spread to other organs. Even with a seemingly dire report, treatment options are available and so is help for your coming journey. A patient navigator program is one such help. Most hospitals have the program in one form or another. Locally, Mount Nittany Health System has a breast cancer navigator. Angelique Cygan has been in that position since 2014 and came in with more than 20 years of valuable experience. “As the breast health navigator at Mount Nittany Medical Center, I am an advocate for our patients,” said Cygan. “Patients battling breast cancer need a strong support system, especially on the clinical front because it’s usually all new territory for them. I act as educator, consultant and liaison, helping patients navigate their breast care journey. “An important part of my job is facilitating a month-

How diet may influence breast health From Gazette staff reports HERSHEY — Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in the United States. We’ve all heard that a healthy diet reduces the risk for breast cancer; but what does a “healthy diet” mean and why is it important? “One of the most important cancer risk factors that women can have a direct effect on is their diet,” said Taryn Millette, a registered dietitian with Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute. “There is strong evidence that eating a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruit, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy products is beneficial for a variety of health reasons, including cancer risk. These foods provide a variety of nutrients that help our bodies work in the best way possible.” Studies have shown that a Mediterranean diet — one rich in nuts, fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, fish and olive oil, with moderate amounts of red wine, which is mainly consumed during meals — protects against breast cancer through reduced oxidative stress, increased satiety and reduced inflammation, as compared to other types of diets. For example, women who consume a healthy diet — as characterized by vegetables, fruits and legumes; low-fat dairy products; olive and other vegetable oils; fish, organ meat and poultry; pickles; soya; and whole grains — have decreased risk of breast cancer. Women who consume a Western diet — as characterized by sweetened drinks, tea

and coffee; French fries or potato chips; salt; desserts; hydrogenated fats; refined grains; and red or other processed meat — have significantly increased breast cancer risk. Some studies suggest that a Western diet increases circulating levels of reproductive hormones that may play a role in the risk for breast cancer. “Ideally, diets should avoid refined starches and processed foods and limit ‘white’ foods like sugar, white potatoes, white rice, white pasta and refined wheat flour,” said Dr. J. Stanley Smith, a breast surgeon with Penn State Hershey Breast Center. “Instead, go for color and whole foods.” Some specific foods are gaining interest related to potential cancer-prevention. Nuts high in omega3 fatty acids, such as walnuts, may offer protection against breast cancer. Whole grains are fermented in the gut by our microbiota, producing bioactive products. Studies to understand the role of gut microbiota on breast cancer risk are currently underway. Whole grains also are rich in antioxidants, can mediate insulin and glucose responses, and may decrease circulating levels of reproductive hormones, all of which have been linked to disease prevention. And speaking of fermentation, sauerkraut contains factors that have specific anti-cancer properties as well. A healthy diet during adolescence may be particularly important for reducing cancer risk. This makes sense as the majority of breast development occurs during puberty. A Mediterranean diet during adolescence, such as a highfiber diet or at least two servings of nuts per week, reduces


A DIET filled with fruits, vegetables and grains can help prevent breast cancer. risk for breast disease. Limiting alcohol intake may be particularly important for young women, as binge drinking in early adulthood may further exacerbate risk. So remember, eat a colorful diet, add a handful of walnuts and a serving or two of sauerkraut, and keep your alcohol intake in check, and you’ll be on your way improving breast health.

Keeping medical imaging safe for children HERSHEY — When a doctor recommends medical imaging for a child, parents may find themselves confused and concerned. What’s the difference between an MRI and a CT scan? An X-ray and an ultrasound? Will it involve radiation that could harm the child in the long term? Penn State Health follows the principles set forth by the Image Gently Alliance, which works to improve safe and effective imaging of children worldwide. Dr. Sosamma Methratta, division chief for pediatric radiology at Penn State Children’s Hospital, said radiologists often talk with the doctor ordering an image to learn specifically what he or she is looking for, so they can determine which type of image would be best. Ultrasound and MRI do not involve radiation because

the images come together through sound waves and magnetic energy, respectively. Both X-rays and CT scans send low radiation beams through the body to produce images. “The risks of the radiation are incredibly small, but still, we try to eliminate them when we can,” Methratta said. Because the cells in children’s bodies are not fully mature, they can be more sensitive to radiation than adults. Children also have more years ahead of them in which longterm effects of radiation could develop. Methratta recommends that parents ask whether a particular test uses radiation, and whether there are other ways to make a diagnosis without that test. “However, you really need to have a background in disease and how you image diseases to understand why you would pick one and not another,” she says.

YOUNG CHILDREN sometimes need to be sedated to remain still enough to go through an MRI procedure.

Also, although an MRI may not involve radiation, young children who go through the procedure often need sedation so they can stay still enough for radiologists to capture the images they need. And sedation comes with its own set of risks. “People should not be unduly stressed,” Methratta said. “The reason the test was ordered is because there is an issue we are concerned about. It would be a disservice to the child not to do the test — to let nature take its course or to guess at the diagnosis.” Dr. Michael Moore, a pediatric radiologist at Penn State Children’s Hospital, said the goal is always to get the best images to answer the questions that patients and their parents need, and to do it as safely as possible. “The most important thing is to let parents know that we use as little radiation as possible to answer the clinical question,” he said.

Students find meaningful work through internships By SAMANTHA BRUMMERT Special to the Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — The vast majority of Penn State law students spend their summer away from Happy Valley, completing internships and gaining valuable experience in law firms, nonprofits and businesses around the state and the nation. Here’s a look at a few students at various levels of their legal education who found meaningful work in diverse fields, and excelled at it: ■ Allison Wells, a third-year law student, has always dreamed of being general counsel for a sports league or team, and this summer, she was offered an internship position with USA Track and Field during a summer Olympic year. The position entailed many different aspects of the law, including intellectual property issues, governing bylaws and operating regulations. She had the opportunity to sit in meetings with outside counsel, gather documents for discovery and draft legal documents. A highlight of the position was working with outside counsel, which is critical to an organization like USATF, because, as Wells said, “It’s somewhat of a common idea amongst general counsels that they know enough about a lot, and not enough about specifics.” ■ Third-year student Beth Ramos realized during her undergraduate tenure as a biology major that she wanted to work with people, not in a laboratory. This discovery led her down a path toward a career in public defense, and this summer, she was able to gain valuable experience with an internship at the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center, working with low-income people charged with capital crimes in Louisiana.

During her time there, Ramos worked on legal and factual research both for mitigation on various cases as well as pre-trial issues. Exercises on jury selection were also a large part of her time, including generating mock jurors via Craigslist advertisements and interviewing former jurors of a previous trial. Though the position had its challenges, Ramos enjoyed her time there, and credits her ability to communicate with all types of people in stressful situations to her work with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program at Penn State Law. ■ Gaining diverse experience was second-year student Brandon McCune’s goal when he set out to look for a summer work experience. After working with Penn State Law’s Career Services Office to get his documents in order to pursue internships, an outside opportunity through a connection of his roommate’s father came through. After one phone interview, McCune accepted a coveted position as an intern for the Orange County District Attorney’s Human Exploitation and Trafficking Unit. Working exclusively with one attorney in the office, McCune’s experience included motion work, trial briefs and analyzing and discussing evidence. He was also able to witness all stages of a criminal trial, from pre-trial to sentencing. The attorney he worked under exposed him to many aspects of the department, and always asked for his input. On his first day on the job, he began transcribing videos on a case in which he would end up becoming heavily involved — a case that goes to trial this month. “Literally everything I did, I learned at Penn State Law,” said McCune. Courses such as Applied Legal Analysis and Writing helped to prepare him for the internship. “For every case I had, I wrote a trial docu-

STUDENTS IN the Penn State Law School made the most of their summer internship opportunities. ment,” he said. McCune also noted that he was grateful for the background that his Criminal Law course provided. “Having the knowledge really helped.” ■ For Jonathan Moore, a second-year law student, regulatory law, though complex, is very familiar. Prior to coming to law school, Moore was the manager of corrective actions/corporate compliance for an aerospace manufacturing company in Kansas. That unique background led him to a summer internship with Prince Law Offices, in Bechtelsville. Starting out assigned to the Firearms Industry Consulting Group, the firm’s firearms division that deals with Pennsylvania and federal firearms law, his expertise in dealing with Occupational Safety and Health Administration issues became apparent. He was asked to revamp the entire OSHA division of the firm. And though starting from scratch on an entire division of a law firm was certainly a challenge, Moore credits part of his success to his

education at Penn State Law School. Many of his courses in his first year prepared him for the diverse challenges he faced, particularly Legal Research Tools and Strategies. “You can never emphasize enough how important that is,” said Moore. Though he is only starting his second year of law school, Moore is still currently working with Prince Law Offices as the firm’s OSHA consultant. His primary duties include performing initial assessments, mock OSHA audits and developing OSHA-compliant safety programs. After graduation, Moore has been offered a fulltime position with the firm. While all very different work experiences, each Penn State Law student found great value in their summer positions, all saying, in some way, that it was the best job they’ve ever had. Whether entering the workforce after graduation this spring, or returning next fall for their final year, these experiences will stay with them throughout their careers.

Grace Lutheran Preschool celebrates 50 years LAUREL SANDERS

The recent 50th anniversary celebration of Grace Lutheran Preschool and Kindergarten was marked by a ceremony attended by nearly 200 current and former staff and alumni, enrolled families and local dignitaries. Founders Gwen Bunnell and Linda Domin, members of Grace Lutheran Church who remain active supporters of the school’s mission, also were in attendance. Opening the ceremony were State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham and Centre County Commissioner Steve Dersham, who delivered proclamations recognizing the school’s 50 Laurel Sanders years of service to the region.

She can be reached The ceremony was followed by a at (814) 238-8110 or glpk@glcpa.org. reception featuring an array of activities for children and their families. One attendee described the event as “a great big hug.” In 1966, Bunnell and Domin, who had taught previously in a small preschool, discovered a shared passion

for teaching and similar educational philosophies. At the time, international families at Penn State did not have an option for kindergarten, and early childhood options locally were limited. Believing they could offer something unique and desirable, they petitioned to start their own school at Grace Lutheran Church. Following council approval, the pastor at the time, Dale Bringman, gave Bunnell and Domin $50, half of which paid the state licensing fee and half of which purchased an ad for the school. Using children’s furniture and toys from their homes, they opened a kindergarten and a class for 4-year-old students. Their reputations led to waiting lists in the first year as they met their goal of “creating a joyful place for children to discover and learn,” still an important aspiration today. Although the school has grown considerably since the early years — enrollment in 2016 is 125 students from ages 2 1/2 through kindergarten — many of the programs are rooted in seeds that were planted in 1966. Children’s Chapel, field trips, visiting professionals, science and nature units and an international component were all rooted in the school’s humble beginnings. The founders also launched a tuition assistance program to help enrolled families with a demonstrated need to access a quality education.

Snow Shoe’s fall festival features vintage cars By SAM STITZER pennsvalley@centrecountygazette.com

SNOW SHOE — The annual Snow Shoe Fall Festival and Car Show was held Sept. 17 at Snow Shoe Park, with proceeds going toward the town’s veterans memorial. The car show featured about 75 cars, trucks and motorcycles sitting among the trees in the park. A steady stream of spectators enjoyed checking out the vintage vehicles. A bright lime green 1973 Dodge Dart Sport 340 owned by Tim Drake, of Lewistown, drew plenty of admiring looks and comments. Drake has accumulated many trophies in shows with the Dart. “I do two shows each weekend, and usually bring home a trophy,” he said. The Dart features mirrored panels on the underside of the hood to reflect the brightly chromed parts on the engine. Drake also owns a rare limited-production 2007 Dodge Dakota R/T pickup which he exhibits. Kermit and Vickie Struble came from Bellefonte in their immaculate Bahama blue 1957 Chevy sedan. Kermit Struble called the car a “junkyard find.” He found it in Mount Eagle, where it had sat outside for years. He spent four years restoring and customizing the car, finishing it in 1994.

He has kept the car in pristine condition ever since, and enjoys driving and showing it. Struble’s brother Marvin was there with his 1967 Ford Mustang coupe in a light metallic green color. The Mustang is equipped with a 200-cubic-inch six-cylinder engine, rather than the more-often seen 289-cubic-inch V8s of the day. Marvin Struble said he has owned the Mustang for 20 years. The original price sticker on a side window indicates the car cost just more than $2,500. Another longtime vehicle owner at the show was Paul Johnstonbaugh, with his 1978 Ford F-150 pickup truck. The truck has an 8-foot bed and four-wheel drive, powered by a 300-cubic-inch six-cylinder engine. Six-cylinder Fords were popular at this show. Two Ford Falcon sedans from the 1960s were on display, both powered by sixes. Jessica Simcisko, of Clarence, showed a 1963 four-door Falcon with an orange-and-white paint scheme. John Henry, of Flemington, brought a 1965 Falcon two-door sedan in candy red. Among the vendors at the festival were Jerry and Vicki Hefferan, who have residences in Butler and Moshannon. They were selling honey and beeswax candles from their hives, as well as raccoon pelts.

Central PA Gluten Spring Mills holds community yard sale Free Expo planned By SAM STITZER


STATE COLLEGE — The fourth annual Central PA Gluten Free Expo will take place from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, at the Penn Stater Conference Center and Hotel, 215 Innovation Blvd. in State College. The event will include more than 50 local and national vendors, educational presentations, door prizes and gluten-free samples. Discounted advance tickets will go on sale Tuesday, Sept. 27, at various area locations, or can be purchased at the door. Children ages 16 and younger are free to attend the event with an adult. Last year, more than 1,100 people attended the event, according to expo organizer Matthew Bolich. Keynote speaker Jules Shepard, known nationally as “gfJules,” will present two sessions at the expo, including a class on the tricky art of baking tasty gluten-free bread. Shepard has been highly visible in the gluten-free community since 2007 with the publication of her first gluten-free cookbook. Since then, she authored two more award-winning published books, became associate editor of Living Without’s Gluten Free & More and started gfJules.com to produce compromise-free gluten-free baking mixes and flour. Shepard has continued her advocacy by exposing other dangerous practices in manufacturing and in the restaurant industry, and promoted awareness and education around safe gluten-free products. She also personally pens the No. 1-voted gluten-free blog, hosts a popular podcast (“The Gluten-Free Voice”) and continues to run her awardwinning gluten-free flour and baking mixes company. Other presenters at this year’s event include Wegmans nutritionist Marda Heuman and author Melinda Arcara, who authored the book “Three Steps to Gluten-Free Living.” Expo exhibitors will be sampling, selling and promoting products at the event. Confirmed vendors for this year include Herlocher Foods, Tito’s Vodka, Lesser Evil Foods, Hershey Entertainment and Enjoy Life. The presenting sponsor of the expo is Wegmans of State College, and tickets will be available at all Wegmans locations. The State College Celiac Support Group and Sentinel Events are hosting the event.

SPRING MILLS — On Sept. 16, Spring Mills was filled with shoppers perusing the many sales located along nearly every street in the town. All manner of used items were being offered for sale at bargain prices, attracting bargain hunters from all around the area to the town’s annual Community Wide Yard Sales event. Jennifer Cornwell and her husband, Josh Cunningham, had a sale at their Railroad Street home. Cunningham said their home was the location of the former Sheffield Creamery years ago. They bought the building in 1992, and have added additional living space and a large garage. This is the first time they have had a sale there. Their sale included many sporting goods and some hobby equipment, as well as household items. Yard sales dotted the outlying area as well as the village. On Route 45, west of town, the home of Schenley and Nelda Johnson was busy with patrons. Their daughters, Jeanette and Deanna, helped handle the shoppers coming to the sale in their double garage. Their sale included items such as camping equipment, fishing rods and a snow blower, as well as many houseware items. Throughout the village of Spring Mills the enticing aroma of barbecued chicken filled the air. Grace United Church of Christ held its annual sale of barbecued chicken, sandwiches, soup and homebaked goods at the church. The church also had many items for sale inside and outside the building. The church’s food sale tradition goes back 42 years Event organizers said the proceeds all go back to the community, with the church contributing to the Penns Valley HOPE Fund, the Gregg Township Fire Company, Penns Valley EMS and several other organizations in the area. Church member Mike Arthur said the church has recently purchased some adjacent property, which provides additional parking space and easier entry and exit from the church grounds.

tions we had to offer. As I began talking to her about what we had on the menu, she chimed in and said, “I’m sorry, I should have said I am vegan, as well. I cannot have any dairy.” More and more people are asking for vegan dishes, and I was in a bit of a panic.

Worried that paying for nursing care might take every penny you have?

This new seminar will show you how you can keep more of your savings.

I’m a girl who uses butter as her secret weapon in the kitchen. While vegetarians do not eat any type fish, meat or poultry, vegans also do not use or consume any other animal products or byproducts, including eggs, dairy products and sometimes honey. People become vegans and vegetarians for various reasons, including their health, the environment and the ethical treatment of animals. I decided it would be a good idea to push my culinary envelope and come up with vegan recipes. This one is specially suited for fall.


Start to finish: 60 minutes Servings: 4 1/2 small sugar pie pumpkin or 1 heaping cup of smashed pumpkin 1/2 yellow onion, sliced into wedges 2 garlic cloves Olive oil, for drizzling 3/4 cup vegetable broth 1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews, soaked, drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 pound uncooked brown rice penne pasta Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the pumpkin, onion wedges and garlic cloves on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Turn the pumpkin cut-side down and pierce a few holes in the skin with a fork to allow steam to escape.


Cover and bake until the onion is soft and translucent and the pumpkin flesh is very tender, about 35 to 45 minutes. Pour the vegetable broth into a blender. Remove the skin and add the pumpkin to the blender along with the onion, peeled garlic, cashews and a few generous pinches of salt and pepper. Blend until creamy.

The Avid Gardener: In praise of trees LORA GAUSS

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” — John Muir

John Muir is a common name in my mother’s family. My grandfather, uncle and cousin all lay claim to that name, as well as our distant ancestry in Scotland. It’s easy to imagine, then, why I felt a conAvid gardener nection to the famous Lora Gauss lives in John Muir while Philipsburg. Email growing up. her at community@ This conservationcentrecountygazette. ist, naturalist, writer com. and explorer was born in a small stone house in Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland, one of eight children. His father was a strict disciplinarian and expected the young boy to buckle down to his religious studies (it is said that by age 11 he could recite by heart all of the New Testament and most of the Old Testament of the Bible), but John had a restless spirit and preferred to wander the coastline and countryside of his native land. Eleven years after immigrating to Wisconsin with his family (they moved there in an effort to appease his father’s religious fervor), he enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1860, which he attended sporadically. In the end, his studies in sciences like geology and botany spurred him to explore the wilderness rather than finish college. Over the years this wanderlust took him to such varied places as Alaska, Australia, South America, Africa, Europe, China and Japan, but, most often, Sierra Nevada in California. And it was as a consequence of these travels and resulting writings (300 articles and 10 major books), that his readers from all walks of life, including notables such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Roosevelt, were inspired by his spiritual quality and exuberant love of nature.

In 1890, after writing influential articles about the devastation of mountain meadows and forests by sheep, an act of Congress created Yosemite National Park, as well as Sequoia, Mount Rainier, Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon national parks. No wonder he is known as the “Father of our National Park System.” He also founded the Sierra Club in 1892, now one of the United States’ largest and most influential environmental organizations. In the 1980s, my family visited Muir Woods National Monument in California, the home of the giant sequoia trees, whose similar fossils were first formed in the Jurassic period in China. Some of the trees in Muir Woods can weigh more than 2,000 tons (4 million pounds), have lived more than 2, 500 years, and are 360 feet tall. These trees truly reveal the inconsequence it is to be human; they were humbling. It’s been said that the earth’s trees are important to its survival. Why is that? Trees are some of the oldest living organisms on earth. It is theorized in a North Carolina Cooperative Extension site that the “beginning and growth of tall woody trees in forests” may have played a key role in the extinction of certain dinosaurs. They played an important role in our evolution and continue to do so. Throughout time, trees have provided value; they help soil remain healthy by stopping soil erosion and creating an environment for the growth of microorganisms. They also improve the quality of life. A 40-year-old tree can absorb as much as a ton of carbon dioxide a year. A larger tree is able to lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in just one day. Furthermore, as one site professed, trees “trap more of the sun’s energy than any other group of organisms on earth.” They account for 50 percent of all energy trapped by organisms. In short, they provide cooling, to which anyone who has been in a structure situated in a wooded area on a hot day can attest. One of the most interesting facts about trees is that their leaves are composed

zette count yga e tr n e c @

of many colored pigments, but they are hidden during the spring and summer by green chlorophyll. When there are shorter days and cooler temperatures at night, the chlorophyll breaks down and the pigments can be seen. To put it simply — the colors of leaves that are seen in the fall are the tree’s true leaf colors. These woody perennials provide inestimable beauty and homes for wildlife and insects. Trees also are responsible for hundreds of foods (think fruit, nuts, coffee, etc.), as well as food additives that are used in things such as ice cream and chewing gum. Because trees provide so many benefits to improve quality of life and the environment for all of us, what are some ways families can help protect trees and conserve forests? The following are a few ideas: ■ Print less and recycle paper by using the other side; go digital with bills. All of this helps save paper. ■ Borrow, share and donate books, which creates less paper demand; switch to e-readers and use the library to help with this, also. ■ Recycle paper products to use for toys like forts, for example. ■ Plant trees to replace those lost to disease and other problems. Renew. ■ Use reusable silverware and plates rather than paper, as much as possible. ■ Use hand dryers in public restrooms rather than paper towels. Buy tree-free or recycled paper towels instead of those made from tree pulp. ■ Buy used wooden furniture to pay less and help prevent deforestation. ■ Support government actions that help in the conservation and management of forests. ■ Educate others about how critical forests are to life on earth. Finally, visit our local, state and national parks and spend time with trees to see and appreciate their value up close. I highly recommend a visit to see the giant sequoias when visiting California.

THE GIANT sequoias are ancient and magnificent trees. As John Muir expressed so well, “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” Everyone needs forests.

Sammis Greenhouse

Juniper Village resident turns 100 STATE COLLEGE — Sitting in her favorite chair and dressed in shades of pink, Juniper Village at Brookline Senior Living resident Elizabeth “Betty” Tutwiler admired a bouquet of 100 roses in honor of her 100th birthday. With a new box of confections on one side and her pink floral walker within reach, Tutwiler smiled radiantly. “I’m an old lady,” she said, “but I never worry about it.” Tutwiler denies having relatives who lived “an unusually long time” and shares that she never thought she would live this long. Surrounding her are pictures and reminders of her family. One particular photo brings a twinkle to her eye. It shows a young married couple, Tutwiler and her husband, Larry, on their wedding day with their best man. “My hair was brown, with so much shine,” she said. “I wasn’t so bad looking either.” Another picture, taken exactly 50 years later, shows a couple still very much in love. Along with the photographs are more flowers from family members and very special artwork by her young greatgranddaughter. Tutwiler doesn’t really have any advice for living to 100, and she doesn’t attribute her accomplishment to a certain lifestyle. However, she did share that she enjoyed staying active when she was younger. “I liked them all, including swimming, bicycling and a bit of golf,” she said.

PSU visits undefeated Michigan at what’s been a house of horrors By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Temple Owls did it again against Penn State. Temple scored two second-half touchdowns after Penn State mistakes — including another big third-quarter interception — ran up more than 300 yards of offense and scored 27 points against a PSU defense stretched to the limit because of injuries. The problem for the Owls, of course, was that this year Penn State scored 34 points instead of 10 — and the Lions probably should have had more. Sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley completed 18 of 24 passes for 287 yards and a beautiful 52-yard touchdown to leading receiver Chris Godwin. Saquon Barkley, trapped, harassed and zeroed in by Temple all day, sliced through the Owl D for a 55-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown that proved to be the difference in the game. Barkley caught Temple’s defense off guard for just a second, and he made them pay for it. “You’d think that we’d be used to it by now,” Godwin said about Barkley’s run, “but every time we see it, it’s amazing. He’s a special player.” And, after last year’s 10-installment sack fest against Christian Hackenberg in Philly, the Lion offensive line showed a bit of improvement over that day. This game’s sack total for Temple: zero. In the end, it all shook out as a disordered, 34-27 win over the very determined and motivated Owls. “Overall, we found a way to grind it out, and get a win against a good football team,” Penn State head coach James Franklin said, “and it’s something to build on going into next week.” Franklin did not mention it here, but Saturday, Sept. 24, is Penn State’s Big Ten opener against undefeated and No. 4 ranked Michigan — in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines are 3-0 and soaring after home victories over Hawaii (63-3), Central Florida (51-14) and Colorado (4528). Against Colorado, Michigan outscored

the Buffaloes 38-7 after falling behind by 14 points early in the game. Michigan’s Mr. Everything Jabrill Peppers returned a Colorado punt 54 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter that gave the Wolverines a 17-point lead and iced the game. Peppers, in fact, did more than that against the Buffaloes. A lot more. He played both offense and defense and lined up almost anywhere on the field. Besides the 54-yarder, he returned another three punts for 45 more yards. He returned a kickoff 55 yards to set up the Michigan go-ahead touchdown and returned another kickoff 27 yards. He also ran twice out of the tailback position, gaining 7 and 17 yards, and he totaled 204 yards of all-purpose offense for the day. On defense, Peppers blitzed for a drivekilling sack, had 3.5 tackles for lost yardage, one quarterback hurry and finished with nine tackles. Peppers lined up as a linebacker, edge rusher, nickel back, cornerback and safety. He blitzed, dropped back into coverage and roamed sideline to sideline. “I can play corner, linebacker, and end up back at safety,” Peppers said. “I try to disguise where I line up. The line makes their checks, and once I get them to make their checks, I back right on up, and that frees someone up. “So, it’s definitely a mind game. You try to keep ‘em on their toes, and I think we did a great job of that today.” Michigan’s 6-foot-6, 243-pound junior quarterback Wilton Speight simply said that Peppers is “the best athlete pound-for-pound in college, probably in any sport. He’s a freak.” Michigan has other weapons besides Peppers for Penn State to contend with. Speight has completed 50 of 81 passes for 686 yards and eight touchdowns in three games, and his three top receivers, Jake Butt, Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson, have 523 of those yards and seven of the touchdowns. Chris Evans (159 yards, 2 TDs) and De’Veon Smith (158 yards, 1 TD) are the leading rushers on the team.

TIM WEIGHT/For the Gazette

PENN STATE running back Saquon Barkley glides into the end zone for a TD against Temple on Sept. 17. The Nittany Lions ran their record to 2-1 with a 34-27 victory.

On defense, Michigan has given up just 45 points in three games (28 to Colorado), and teams are gaining just 296 yards per game. Peppers and the pass defense give up only 156 yards passing, and opponents have a total of just three touchdowns through the air. Compare that to Michigan’s 53 points and 452 yard averages per game and it’s apparent that right now the Wolverines are on a roll. The 159 points the Michigan has scored so far is the most the Wolverines have ever scored in their first three games. For underdog Penn State, the path in this game seems clear. Michigan will no doubt gang up on Barkley, so McSorley, Godwin and the rest of the Lion passing offense will have to produce, especially early. That means, also, that the offense line will have to put in a performance like the one against Temple. The turnovers, miscommunications, mistakes and bad snaps will not make it in the Big House. Michigan will take advantage of every miscue. And it would certainly help to get some of the injured defens i v e players back onto the field. Given Franklin’s policy about not discussing injuries, the extent of those injuries are not really known and neither is when they will be back. Against Temple, the PSU defense was backed into some tight corners and responded well, most notably in the second half. But it will need all the help it can get at Michigan. Penn State does have one superhostile venue game under its belt — at Pitt — and that should help with the Lions’ composure. But the early going will be extremely important, and PSU cannot give up big plays on offense or defense and allow the Michigan crowd to really get into the action. It has been said, more than once, that Penn State fans should be prepared for very exciting but “messy” games from this Nittany Lion team. Any amount of messiness, however, at Michigan against a Wolverine team this good is very dangerous. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m., and the game will be televised on ABC.

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State took down the Temple Owls on Sept. 17 in a close battle, 3427. After leaving the game early due to injury, sophomore running back Saquon Barkley returned and dealt a late-game blow to the Owls with a 55-yard touchdown run. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Trace McSorley posted his third consecutive 200-yard passing game, finishing with 287 yards and two touchdowns, each through the air and on the ground. Penn State was on the board first with a pass from McSorley to junior wideout Chris Godwin for 52 yards. It was the type of energy the Blue and White was hoping to achieve after back-to-back games with slow starts. With only two plays needed, Temple silenced Penn State fans with a 67-yard pass and an 8-yard touchdown by senior running back Jahad Thomas. Penn State went into the locker room with a decisive 21-10 lead over their in-state rivals. But, turnovers plagued the Nittany Lions yet again, allowing Temple to remain in the game until the end. Penn State head coach James Franklin stressed that limiting turnovers is going to be the key focus moving forward. “We’re just going to keep working on it and keep emphasizing it,” Franklin said. “We can’t fumble the ball once we have the ball in our hands.”

One of those turnovers came in the third quarter when sophomore cornerback Delvon Randall picked off McSorley and returned it deep into Penn State territory. Temple would convert and score on a scramble by senior quarterback Philip Walker from 1 yard out to cut the lead to 24-17. “Penn State is a good team, so we were looking forward to a fight,” said Randall. “We wanted a fight, but we wanted to see if it was going to happen until the fourth quarter.” Later in the fourth, the game took a serious turn when Penn State lost possession again deep in their own territory. Temple punter Alex Starzyk precisely placed a roller that bounced off of redshirt sophomore cornerback Amani Oruwariye and was recovered by the Owls. Temple cashed in on Thomas’s second touchdown of the day pulling within three to make it 27-24. With his leg wrapped, Barkley put the offense on his shoulders and broke off his 55-yard run for the touchdown that put Temple in a tough hole with little time remaining. “We were able to get him back in and, obviously, Saquon (Barkley) has the ability if we create a little bit more space, he has the ability to break tackles and make people miss, and then he has the ability with his speed to finish runs,” said Franklin. The Nittany Lions clinched a victory on sophomore cornerback John Reid’s interception and Revenge, Page 22

Penn State ekes past Temple in revenge game

Good, bad and ugly: Surviving a scare Penn State is 2-1, but got a scare on Sept. 17 against the Temple Owls. The Nittany Lions escaped with a 34-27 win over the Owls, avenging last season’s 27-10 upset loss at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Still, there was plenty of good, bad and ugly to go around following the win. Let’s take a closer look at each: ■ The good — Saquon Barkley. Notice a theme here? Barkley left the game briefly with a minor injury, but came back to rack up 68 yards on nine carries. His 55-yard touchdown run sealed the victory for the Lions, who struggled mightily without him in the lineup. ■ The bad — The defense. Once again, the defense surrendered way too many points to an inferior opponent. It also let the Owls back in the football game time and time again. Against Kent State and Temple, the Lions will get away with things. But the Big Ten is waiting. ■ The ugly — Turnovers. The Lions put the ball on the ground five times, but recovered three of their own fumbles.

Grading the Lions: Injured defense gets so-so mark By BEN JONES StateCollege.com

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State overcame injuries and at least one potentially major misstep Sept. 17 to knock off Temple 34-27, picking up their second win of the season. While Penn State is still far from a perfect team, the Temple game was, in many respects, the most complete effort by the Nittany Lions so far. Here are the grades.


This is probably what Joe Moorhead pictured when it came to this offense. Long plays down the field, effective execution on first down and points to top it all off. Penn State racked up 403 yards of offense with a balanced attack of 287 through the air and 116 on the ground, despite missing Saquon Barkley for a good portion of the game. Trace McSorely was an effective 18-of-24 on the day, managing the offense and never really forcing the issue. Chris Godwin led the way with seven catches for a casual 117 yards, including a wide-open 52-yard catch and run to start off the scoring. Perhaps most impressive during the first half was the effectiveness with which the offense moved. Following Barkley’s injury on the first drive of the day, Penn State managed to go touchdown, redzone fumble, touchdown and touchdown on the next four drives without him. Where

Penn State’s offense may have struggled in recent years to move the ball without its star, the Nittany Lions just relied on different players to get the job done. Fumbles and a missed route leading to an interception were mistakes Penn State can’t have against better teams, but when it comes down to the overall product, this was a fairly solid four-quarter effort from this bunch against a pretty good Temple defense. Things need to be tightened up in Big Ten play, though.


Had this been Penn State’s normal grouping, then this grade would probably be a tick lower. But considering the Nittany Lions were without any of their starting linebackers for a good portion of the game and have turned to two true sophomores and a walk-on, there is a bit of wiggle room here. Add in the absence of Grant Haley, a bangedup Marcus Allen and hobbled players after nearly defensive down, this group battled through this game in every sense of the word. Temple only had 324 yards of offense, but penalties killed a lot of promising Owl drives. A 3-of-13 on third down mark is a very solid result for Penn State’s defense on any day, let alone one like this. By the game’s end, Penn State had seen seven defensive starters limited or completely out. All told, Malik Golden (who also left for a period with injury) led the way with nine tackles, while Marcus Allen and Brandon Smith both made eight on their own. Penn State’s

THE NITTANY LION offense, led by QB Trace McSorley, was clicking on all cylinders during their 34-27 win over Temple.

defense racked up three sacks and nine tackles for a loss by the end of the game. This unit is in trouble, partially because it’s young and partially because it’s injured. Neither of those things are easily correctable. Honorable mention to John Reid, quickly becoming a Penn State star on punt returns and in the secondary.


This group was so close to a better grade, but a Joey Julius kick out of bounds and a muffed punt recovered by Temple put some imperfections on this grade. Everything else was perfect. Tyler Davis made from 40 and 30 yards, both kicks coming in the second half. Julius, to his credit, had six touchbacks on seven kicks. It was Reid, though, who stole the show: five punt returns with a long of 29 yards, and even more that looked like they had the potential for bigger gains. In the kickoff return game, it was more of the same, as Brandon Polk ripped off a 35-yard return and freshman Miles Sanders had a 31-yard return with a nasty spin move to boot. Blake Gillikin was also his usual reliable self with a three-punt average of 35 yards, but with no real chance for long punts based on where Penn State was punting from. He had two downed inside the 20, including another on the goal line. James Franklin has gushed over this unit’s improvement this spring and fall, and it’s easy to see why.


The offense clicked, and Penn State’s defense played about as well as you can reasonably expect a defense that injured can. Special teams was solid and there weren’t any really questionable coaching decisions. The Nittany Lions converted two fourth down plays and managed to overcome a few miscues along the way. The turnovers have to stop, but all told this was a solid afternoon for a team in this position.

Revenge, from page 20 remains undefeated against Temple in Beaver Stadium. Injuries continue to decimate Penn State’s starting core as the team has played nine first-time starters in 2016. The defense has been dealt some serious losses on the front seven, but players like redshirt sophomore defensive end Torrence Brown who have seen an increase in playing time stepped up in a key way on Saturday. “We always play as a team. If you’re a backup, you prepare like you’re going to start. If someone goes down, then you’re ready to pick it up right away,” said Brown. Penn State travels to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on the Wolverines, led by coach Jim Harbaugh.

Making a Statement State College rips Mifflin County, 51-7

By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — The State College football team made it look easy the first two times it had the football against Mifflin County on Sept. 16 at Memorial Field. Turns out, those possessions were merely hints of things yet to come. The Little Lions scored quick touchdowns on each of them, ran up a 31-point lead by halftime, and then coasted home, 51-7, to their third victory of the season without a loss. SC quarterback Tyler Snyder threw a perfect 30-yard strike to Noah Woods just five plays into the game, and then Tristen Lyons went in from the 1 four minutes later to give the Lions a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. By the time Pete Haffner bulled in from 2 yards out just after the start of the second quarter, the Little Lions were well on their way to their first home win and first victory in Mid-Penn Conference play. Snyder finished with eight completions for 96 yards and three touchdowns in the game, while Woods, Brandon Clark and Erik Swanson caught the scoring passes. Keaton Ellis led the Lions with 69 yards on the ground, but five other backs also posted double figures rushing for the day. In all, the Lions had 249 yards rushing on 35 attempts and 347 yards in total offense. “We have a lot of kids that we can rely on in a lot of different positions,” State College coach Matt Lental said, “and I think it’s critical for our team to continue to improve — no matter who we are playing.

TIM WEIGHT/For the Gazette

STATE COLLEGE Area High School’s Noah Woods (2) hauls in a TD during the Little Lions’ 51-7 win over Mifflin County on Sept. 16. “We have a lot of work that we need to do. We are better than we were in Week 1, but not where we need to be in Week 10.” State College’s first drive was indicative of how well the SC offense operated all night. Taking the ball on the 28-yard line after the kickoff, Snyder handed off to Lyons for 8 yards on first down. Another run by Lyons netted 11 yards, and then Snyder took off himself for 8 yards. Next came the first pass of the game, a 16-yard catch-and-run to Woods in the

left flat, and then from the MC 30, Woods came open down the left sideline and Snyder led him perfectly. It all took less than two minutes, and SC broke ahead 7-0. From there, in quick succession, Lyons scored from the 1, Haffner pushed in from the 2, kicker Jack Sheehan hit a 27-yard field goal and, just before halftime, Snyder threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to tight end Erik Swanson. The Lions, in all, scored on five of their seven first-half possessions.

“Getting off to a fast start was the key to the win tonight,” Snyder said. “We scored on the first possession in, like, five plays, and we felt the momentum and our defense could feed off of that. “We put in that pass play (to Woods) about an hour before the game. We knew we could take advantage of their singlehigh safety, and I looked to the right, but Brandon (Clark) was covered, so I looked back, and Noah (Woods) blew by his guy like always. I put it out there, and he made a great play.” As SC was piling up the points, the Lion defense almost completely stymied Mifflin’s offense. The Huskies punted five times in the first half, lost a fumble and gained only a total of 15 yards. Mifflin did begin to produce in the second half behind the passing and running of quarterback Drew Williams. The Huskies put together two long drives of 10 and 12 plays and scored a touchdown on a 4-yard run by Isaac Maclay in the third quarter. But by that time the game was already under the mercy rule, and there was little time to do much more damage. “We came into this game expecting to do well offensively,” Snyder said, “and that first drive helped us build momentum that we had for the rest of the game.” Williams led Mifflin on offense with 96 yards passing on 10 completions, and he also added 45 rushing yards, mostly in the second half. The Little Lions will next square off against Mechanicsburg, a non-conference foe, Friday, Sept. 23, at Memorial Field.

Suhey honored prior to State High game By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — State College High School graduate Matt Suhey advanced into some extremely select company in his career on a football field. Not many high school players go on to play football in college, and even fewer — a tiny percentage, actually — distinguish themselves enough to get noticed by teams in the NFL. Then to make a pro roster, become a starter, excel and finally earn a Super Bowl ring all defy odds that are most likely too infinitesimal to calculate. Yet Matt Suhey did all of that, and more. On Sept. 16, Suhey returned to State High and was honored before the Little Lions’ first 2016 home game of the season at Memorial Field. As a member of the Chicago Bears’ Super Bowl champions in 1985, Suhey was in town to present his alma mater with a Golden Trophy for the school to display in its trophy case. It’s part of the NFL’s Super Bowl High School Honor Roll, which is a program designed to honor the Super Bowl champion players and their high schools. State High actually has two Super Bowl winning alumni; the other is Jordan Norwood, who is now playing for the Denver Broncos and could not attend.

TIM WEIGHT/For the Gazette

FORMER STATE COLLEGE Area High School Little Lion Matt Suhey was honored prior to State High’s game with Mifflin County on Sept. 16. So the day was all about Suhey, but the school also extended invitations to all former letter winners of State College football teams. The former players who were able to attend joined Suhey on the field as the Golden Football presentation was being made. That group, incidentally, included Tem-

ple head coach Matt Ruhle who happened to be in State College for another football game which was held at Beaver Stadium on Sept. 17. “For Matt Suhey to come back,” State College head coach Matt Lintal said, “and have this opportunity to speak with our team and have this presentation on the field means a lot. That’s why these alums

came back, to see him. “I’m so thankful for the tradition that State High football has and for the guys who have paved the way and led us to what we have today.” As if on cue, the 2016 Little Lions followed with their best outing of the season so far, a 51-7 victory over Mid-Penn foe Mifflin County.

SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016



Week 5: A week of potential mismatches By PAT ROTHDEUTSCH sports@centrecountygazette.com

This is not a misprint: BEA 3, Chestnut Ridge 0 in overtime. That’s right, two teams that both can put up points from anywhere on the field were totally held in check by the defenses. The only score was a 26-yard field goal by Blake Roberts in overtime that won the game for the Eagles. Of course, it took two opportunistic plays deep in its own territory — a fumble recovery and an interception — for BEA to pull it out, but holding Chestnut Ridge scoreless is nonetheless quite an achievement. Here’s hoping that there will be more games just as compelling coming up this week for Centre County football teams.

MECHANICSBURG (0-3) AT STATE COLLEGE (3-0) Mechanicsburg comes into State College with an 0-3 record after losses to Carlisle (44-0), Spring Grove (35-0) and Northern York (27-21). Mechanicsburg showed improvement against Northern York, but the Wildcats have been plagued by turnovers so far this season (nine) that have seriously crimped their offense. Mechanicsburg is led by quarterback Dylan Smith who has completed 23 of 41 passes for 276 yards and two touchdowns. Jermaine Hull caught 13 of those passes for 203 yards and a touchdown, and he has an average of 15.6 yards per catch. Zak Huth is the team’s leading rusher with 86 yards on 30 carries, but the MHS rushing game has struggled so far. The Wildcats have gained just 108 yards on 66 carries in their three games so far. State College is not an opponent to get well against. The Little Lions are 3-0, with their latest win a 51-7 romp over local rival Mifflin County. SC has speed and talent all over the

field, on offense and defense, and the Lions employ a quick-strike attack that can score from anywhere. Tyler Snyder has excelled so far at the quarterback position, and he has a host of go-to players including Tristen Lyons, Pete Haffner, Brandon Clark, Noah Woods, Erik Swanson and Donovan Brown, among others. This is a non-league game for the Lions, and they will use it to tune up for the rest of their Mid-Penn Conference schedule.

BELLEFONTE (2-2) AT TYRONE (3-1) Tyrone cruised home last week with a 37-7 win over Philipsburg-Osceola to raise its record to 3-1. The Golden Eagles also have wins over Huntingdon (48-42, OT) and Bellwood-Antis (15-12), but they lost big, 31-7, at powerful Central in Week 2. Sophomore quarterback Denver Light has completed 31 passes for 544 yards and seven touchdowns so far, and he leads a balanced and effective Eagle offense. Brandon Loose in the leading rusher with 387 yards on 70 carries, but Tyrone has three other runners with over 100 yards. The team is averaging 205 yards on the ground and 350 total yards each game. In Bellefonte’s 24-21 loss to Central Mountain on Sept. 16, the Raiders fell behind early, made an inspired comeback to take a fourth-quarter lead, and then lost after a 45-yard touchdown run with less than two minutes left in the game. If that sounds familiar, it’s because that is almost exactly what happened in the Raiders’ first game of the season against Jersey Shore. After the Jersey Shore game, Bellefonte rallied for two impressive wins in a row. The Raiders will be trying to do that again, but this time it will have to start against the very good Tyrone Eagles.


Bald Eagle Area was averaging almost

40 points per game going into Week 4 against Chestnut Ridge. The Eagles scored just three points against CR, but no problem. Their defense pitched a shutout, and BEA came away with its third win of the season against only one loss. There’s no argument, though, that getting win four at Central on Sept. 23 will be a major challenge. The Dragons are powerful, balanced and have only one loss — a close, 30-28 affair at Clearfield. The major challenge for BEA will be trying to slow down Central’s do-everything senior Alex Hoenstine. Hoenstine lines up almost anywhere. He is the leading rusher on the team, the leading receiver and he throws in some plays at quarterback in certain situations. He also returns punts and kickoffs. So far in four games, he has 1,005 allpurpose yards, an average of 250 per game and he’s scored 15 touchdowns. The improving BEA defense passed a big test against Chestnut Ridge, and Hoenstine and the rest of the Dragons loom to be even bigger.

P-O (0-4) AT CHESTNUT RIDGE (2-2) Chestnut Ridge will not be in a good mood when Philipsburg-Osceola comes to visit Sept. 23. The Lions lost 3-0 at BEA in Week 4, and that was after averaging almost 30 points per game in their three previous contests. Junior quarterback Logan Hauck leads a very good CR passing game that puts up almost 200 yards every time out. Hauck completes more than 60 percent of his passes and threw for 700 yards and six touchdowns for the season. The Lions’ rushing game is not quite as good — just 100 yards each game — but Hauck leads them in that department as well with 310 yards on 60 carries. P-O may play right into the hands of Chestnut Ridge’s offense. The Mounties have shown they can contend against the

Roberts carries Eagles past Lions By MICHAEL D. KRESOVICH correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

WINGATE — Bald Eagle Area came into the season wanting to “stuff the stat sheets” on the offensive side of the ball. In the first three games played by the Eagles, they have eclipsed 50 on the scoreboard twice. This was not the case when Chestnut Ridge came to visit Sept. 16. The matchup between the Lions and the Eagles had to go into overtime to decide a winner. But, BEA came out on the winning side of things, 3-0. The Eagle defense played a very stagnant game, collecting three interceptions and pouncing on two fumbles. The up-tempo Eagles offense was not as explosive as normal and the Lions did not back down to challenge the experienced Eagle attack. The score was 0-0 for four quarters — 48 minutes of scoreless football. During the opening quarter, it was full of punts and turnover on downs, both teams unable to get their offenses going. The Eagles had a chance to score when they were at the Lions’ 8-yard line, but the heavy blitzing Lions defense made the Eagles turn the ball over on downs with only 36 seconds remaining in the first half. Bald Eagle Area needed someone to step up in the game and they found someone. Sophomore Blake Roberts had a game he may never forget, intercepting two passes (one coming with only 1:52 remaining in the fourth quarter) and knocking down the game-winning field goal in overtime to win. After four scoreless quarters of football, the Lions and Eagles needed to go into overtime to establish a winner. The Lions from Chestnut Ridge had the ball first in overtime, but after an interception gathered by Eagles defensive back Gage McClenahan, it was the Eagles’ turn to try to score. After being stalled on three plays, the game weighed on the right toe of Roberts. He watched the Eagles offense unable to get into the end zone as he warmed up his leg on the sideline in preparation for the game-winning field goal.

run, but time and again they have given up big plays through the air. The Lions likely will test the run game early against P-O, but look for Lauck to start putting it up often against the Mountie secondary.

HUNTINGDON (1-3) AT PENNS VALLEY (1-3) There’s no question that Penns Valley has a solid football team, but the Rams’ first four games featured four quality opponents to say the least. The most recent, Central, pulled away from PV for a 41-8 win and handed the Rams their third loss. This week, Huntingdon travels to Penns Valley, which is another team with a deceptive 1-3 record. The Bearcats beat Mount Union, 15-12, in their opener, but since have lost to Bellefonte (21-20), Tyrone (48-42 in overtime) and Clearfield (35-21). Huntingdon has a solid, 200-yards-pergame running attack. and quarterback Andrew Hudy adds another 90 yards through the air. Hudy (214 yards) is also the team’s second-leading runner, with Ian Border being the leader with 485 yards on 78 carries. Penns Valley showed its potential with a big win in Week 3 over BEA, but this game shapes up as being even more important than that one, certainly in terms of the Rams’ confidence going into the second half of the season.


Something has to give in this game of two teams still looking for their first win of the season. Both have lost big in every game so far, and St. Joe’s especially will have to find ways to stop the running game of its opponents. The Bucks may present that opportunity.

BALD EAGLE AREA’S Blake Roberts kicks the game-winning field goal in overtime. The Eagles beat Chestnut Ridge, 3-0.

“I told myself, ‘I need to get this,’” Roberts said. He drilled a 26-yard field goal that cut between the posts to give the Eagles a 3-0 victory. After the field goal when through, Roberts was bombarded by his teammates. “I just starting running; it was crazy,” Roberts said after he watched it sail through the uprights. The Eagles were not the only ones who were excited. Head coach Jesse Nagle was at the bottom of the pile, Nagle even had “battle wounds” of cuts on his arm and head. “That’s what football is all about,” Nagle said about the excitement of the game. The Eagles did not need their high-powered offensive attack during the game. Instead, their defense came to the rescue, led by a sophomore who wanted to make an impact. The Eagles visit Central on Friday, Sept. 23.

North Central Pa. Golf Association season ends


STATE COLLEGE — For the second year in a row, sunny skies and comfortable temperatures welcomed 70 North Central Pennsylvania Golf Association tournament players to Toftrees Golf Resort to close out the 2016 season.

Bucknell’s Ben Cook found the top of the leader board again in the 50to-59 division as he fired an even-par 72. Cook birdied three holes on the front nine compared, to only one bogey to go out in 2-under-par 34. However, the birdies stopped on the back nine and two bogies landed Cook at even par. The victory didn’t come easy, as Cook’s playing partner and fellow Bison, Al Kline Jr., also fired a 34 on the front. However, Kline bogied the last two holes to fall one off the pace with a 73. Shade Mountains’ Tim Jordan carded a 77, which was good enough for third in the division;

it also helped Jordan jump to top of the ladder in the annual points championship for the division. Belles Springs Golf Club’s Todd Trexler finished fourth carding a 78, while Mountain View Country Club’s Paul Daniel Swanson placed fifth and Gary Dolan, also of Belles Springs, was sixth. The 60-to-69 division saw Terry Cooper, of Toftrees Golf Club, leading the way by out-dueling the eventual points champion, Tim Harpster, of Bucknell, by one stroke, 74-75. Bucknell’s Jeff Ranck finished third, six shots back with an 80. Ranck’s 80 was good enough to lift him to second place in the points race for 2016. Belles Springs’ Chuck Beck carded a 53-50, 103 to end his season. Bucknell’s Dick Williamson, in the 70to-79 division, entered the day a distant second in points to the division’s most dominant golfer, Dale Bievenour, of York. Williamson needed the win and a little help to claim the point’s title and that is exactly what happened, as he carded a 75. Bievenour posted his highest score of the season, an 83, propelling Williamson to the top of the points scale. Tom Egli, also of Bucknell, fired even nines of 39 to finish in second place with his 78, just three off of Williamson’s pace. Shade Mountain’s Dan Travelet posted an 81 to finish third with his best round of the season. Mountain View’s Darrell Early posted a round of 39-44, 83 for a fifth-place finish. Dick Beck led all 80 and older by carding two birdies on the back nine on his way to a round of 78. White Deer’s Pete

It will be a busy ‘off season’ for the Spikes The 2016 New York Penn League Champion State College Spikes will be well represented in the Florida Instructional League. The FIL is an offseason league, played in September and October, that is used for organizations to get further looks at players, while also refining their skills. Many types of prospects roll through “instructs,” from high round picks to fringe prospects. On the mound, the Spikes’ alltime single-season wins leader Steven Farinaro will get a look, as will part-time 2016 Spikes starters Ronnie Williams and John Kilichowski. Jordan Hicks will also spend time on the Jason Rollison is a bump, and his strong play late in the Pittsburgh Pirates season has many excited about his commentator. development. Email him Looking at the infield, two of the at jason@ major cogs in the Spikes’ potent ofpiratesbreakdown. fense will get a chance at some bonus com. hacks. Ryan McCarvel will take his powerful swing to Florida in an attempt to gain some plate discipline. McCarvel finished the season with 10 home runs and 45 RBIs in 65 games, but also carried a bloated 26.2 percent strikeout rate. McCarvel is listed as a catcher but should continue to see the bulk of his work at first base. Catcher Jeremy Martinez, likely the best pound-forpound position player prospect to put on a Spikes uniform in 2016, will also get the chance to refine his craft. Scouts and player development types alike are very excited about Martinez, with one scout telling me that his path to the major leagues is very clear. Martinez’s defense should play at the big-league level, and his bat was steady throughout the year. In the outfield, Vince Jackson will take his unique blend of tools to Florida in hopes of impressing the right people in the St. Louis Cardinals organization. Much like McCarvel, Jackson had his share of free-swinging tendencies throughout 2016, yet his all-around game more than made up for his shortcomings. Jackson was second on the club in steals with 26, placed second in runs scored (39) and had the second most hits with 62. He excelled in center field defensively, and has shown a tremendous baseball IQ to date. The sobering reality is this: Only 16.1 percent of prospects make it onto a major league roster. Leagues such as the FIL and its Arizona Fall League counterpart are not an inflection point by any means, but rather another chance for these would-be big leaguers to continue to learn how to be professional baseball players. ❑❑❑ The State College Spikes ranked sixth in the 14-team NYPL in attendance. Over 38 home games, the club took in 125,875 total fans — an average of 3,313. Their Medlar Field home holds 5,570 for baseball, though the Spikes notably saw a swell to 6,111 for their home finale. It is a familiar position for State College, as they have ranked sixth in each of the past three years.


Reasner posted a 94 for second; however, Reasner earned enough points throughout the season to hold on to the points title for the division. The event was the final one of the 2016 NCPGA Championship Series. For more information, visit www.ncpga. net.

In third place was the team from Ramada Inn, defeating K&J Machine Shop. In the semifinals, Blaise Alexander defeated K&J, while Wisecrackers stopped Ramada Inn. Quarterfinal play had K&J over Michelle’s and Ramada Inn defeating Bartley’s.


The Philipsburg Elks Lodge and Country Club’s Men’s Twilight League was founded in 1964 and just completed its 52nd season. The Moshannon Valley Economic Valley Partnership won the Men’s Twilight League for the fourth time in the past five years by defeating Dux Head Environmental Services in the finals. The MVDEP team consisted of Captain Jeff Herr, G.A. Helsel, Tim Ronan, Keith Hahn, Todd Reifer, Al Herr, Hayden Hay-

ward, Ryan Dobo, Kelly Reifer, Dave Arnold, Denny Shealer, Sam Demko, Travis Arnold, Stan LaFuria, Mike Healey and Tom Scott. Dux Head won the regular season with 105.5 points, MVDEP was second with 96 points, Senergy Marketing Group was third with 89 points and Lee Industries was fourth with 82.5 points. The ladies crowned Daria Danko as their 2016 champion. The league played a yearly points system in which each participant played a head-to-head match against each other throughout the year. Danko ended the season with 89.5 points. Val Patrick took second with 80 points, Georgiann Way finished third with 78, Halle Herrington was fourth with 76.5 points and Jenn Johnston was fifth with 73.5 points.

Bellefonte: A small community with plenty of charm Special to the Gazette BELLEFONTE — Bellefonte is a special place. Just ask anyone who lives there. The little borough of Bellefonte was established in 1795 and named the county seat for the newly formed Centre County five years later. Over the years, it came to be surrounded by Spring Township and lost a measure of prominence in the county as State College, about 12 miles southwest, gained eminence with the development of what would become Penn State University. Bellefonte means “beautiful source” or “beautiful fountain,” a moniker the borough got for its “Big Spring,” the Spring Creek-fed source of its drinking water and some of its recreational activity. Around Big Spring, Bellefonte created its iconic centerpiece, Talleyrand Park. The natural spring has been there for centuries but the park itself wasn’t developed until the 1970s. Talleyrand has a gazebo, walking bridge and other walkways, a large fountain, benches, the George Grey Barnard Sculpture Garden, an edible garden and lots of greenspace. “We get a lot of families that come down to Talleyrand Park and bring their kids to feed the ducks, to see the fish, to spend a nice day in the park,” said Bellefonte Mayor Thomas Wilson. Bellefonte’s downtown runs from Talleyrand Park to about Allegheny Street.

Where Allegheny splits off from High Street at what locals call the Diamond, a diamond-shaped intersection divider that is typically filled with a flower arrangement but these days sports a decorated Christmas tree. Once home to a number of manufacturing facilities, Bellefonte today is in no small degree, according to Wilson, a bedroom community of Penn State and State College. There are a goodly number of small businesses in the borough but many residents work or go to school in State College. “The fact that we’re so close to a major university makes it a good place to live because you have all the cultural events and sports that the university provides but in a place that’s a little more relaxed,” said Wilson, who noted that Bellefonte’s population is a little over 6,000. The bedroom community designation shouldn’t mislead anyone about the quaint borough’s historical and cultural assets nor its community spirit. “The great asset of Bellefonte is that there are a number of very active volunteer groups, including Historic Bellefonte Inc., one of the larger groups handle all of the borough’s biggest events,” said Wilson. “It’s a very community-involved town with lots of opportunities to become engaged. If you moved into the community, and you wanted to meet the townsfolk, joining one the groups — whether it be HBI or Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Associa-

Bellefonte is home to excellent eateries including The Hofbrau, Governors’ Pub and Restaurant and Jim’s Italian Cuisine. There’s also the little Café on the Park and Cool Beans Coffee & Tea, among others. Bellefonte’s historical ambiance is secure with several listings on the National Register of Historic Places, such as the Centre County Courthouse, the Bellefonte Armory and the Pennsylvania Match Factory, bought by the American Philatelic Society and rehabbed. The former manufacturing facility is now headquarters for its owner organization, as well as home to Big Spring Spirits and a few other businesses. The Bellefonte Historical Railroad shares the old train station building with the Chamber of Commerce. On the home front, Bellefonte has many ornate homes built in the Victorian era. A number of them are opened up for tours

during the Bellefonte Victorian Christmas celebration, scheduled this year from Friday, Dec. 11, through Sunday, Dec. 13. The Christmas-season celebration also features an arts and crafts show, concerts, horse-drawn buggy rides, a gingerbread house contest, strolling entertainment, breakfast with Santa and a Victorian Tea Party. The popular Santa Express train ride that’s typically part of the festivities won’t happen this year until the following weekend. Bellefonte’s other primary annual celebrations include the Big Spring Festival in May, a children’s fair in June, the Father’s Day weekend Bellefonte Cruise, August’s arts and crafts fair and Fall Festival Weekend in October. Wilson indicated that growth will be forthcoming in the new year at Bellefonte’s Waterfront District. The borough will build a mandatory flood wall there, according to Wilson, along with a walkway and then present it to developers. “We hope for maybe a small boutique hotel, some condos, shops and parking to go in there,” said Wilson. “The borough has also purchased the armory property and building, which is on the historic register. By agreement, the building has to be preserved but the property will be developed for sale as well. All this will add some tax base for our land-locked borough.”

Stewart a key player in Bellefonte’s growth, success By G. KERRY WEBSTER kerry.ccgazette@gmail.com

BELLEFONTE — The Borough of Bellefonte is always on the mind of Ralph Stewart. It should be. For the last 16 years, Stewart has been the community’s borough manager, and in those 16 years, he has seen the borough go through some changes, particularly when it comes to land development and bringing more revenue to the community’s tax roles. “We have a challenge ahead of us,” Stewart said. “It’s not an easy challenge, but its something we know we have to do moving forward.” According to Stewart, Bellefonte Borough encompasses about 2 square miles. Unfortunately, in those 2 square miles, there’s little land left for development. “That is where we’re running into the problems,” he said. “Being a relatively small community, we’re not deriving a lot of revenue from these taxes. We’ve gotten enough to sustain our operations and services we provide, but as costs continue to increase, we’re going to have to find new ways to generate that tax income. “We’ll need to juggle some things and re-organize to overcome the challenges ahead of us. It’s something we can do, we just need to be creative about it.” An example is the former match factory. Generating little revenue, Bellefonte Borough purchased the facility We Accept Food Stamps, EBT, or SNAP Benefits 206 W High St. Bellefonte 814-548-6281

and has redeveloped it to include multiple businesses and offices. “Now, it’s bringing much more revenue to the borough than it was before,” said Stewart. The recently completed Waterfront Project is also expected to bring more revenue to the tax rolls. “I’m very proud to have had my hand in this project. It’s a keystone project for Bellefonte,” he said. “Three properties at the project site were generating very minimal tax revenue, and, to be honest, the area wasn’t very pleasing on the eyes. Now, however, its a nice area to look at, and, there’s interest from a hotel developer to build on the site. There was an effort to develop the site several years ago, but that never came to fruition. With the improvements we’ve made there, we can now sell one of the three properties so someone can build a hotel with all the amenities. It’s another tool in our toolbox.” A similar tax-generating project is in the works at the former Bellefonte National Guard Armory. Stewart said the borough purchased the property in hopes of finding a developer for the front part of the building.

Stewart, from page 29 He said Bellefonte is in a good financial position, currently. However, the community’s leaders realize there will be projects that will need to be completed in the near future, and these projects should be looked at sooner, rather than later, or when they are mandated by the state or federal government. “We’re going to have to look at our storm water management here very soon,” said Stewart. “We’re not under mandate yet to separate the storm water system, but I an-

ticipate that’s going to happen soon.” In addition, he said the borough must continue to handle all the day-in and day-out services it provides. “We can’t overlook the importance of keeping our streets paved, our trees trimmed and our parks clean,” he said. “These may be just ‘little’ things in some people’s eyes, but they are very important to having a healthy community.” And, that’s what he feels Bellefonte is. “We’re in a good position here in 2016, but to stay in a good position, we need to be proactive in the community,”

he said. “We need to plan our projects carefully and efficiently and we need to continue to look outside the box. Bellefonte is a wonderful community to live and work, and, it’s only going to get better.” Stewart has been with the borough for 24 years. He worked in the planning and zoning department for 6 1/2 years before becoming assistant to the borough manager and assistant borough manager, positions he held for about 18 months. He has a bachelor’s degree in administration of justice and a master’s degree in public administration, both from Penn State University.

It’s time to winterize your home By JODI MORELLI correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — Fall in central Pennsylvania means football on weekends, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and a landscape of vibrant colors. Cooler nights and brisk autumn days are often a welcome relief from the summer heat. However, as the leaves fall and temperatures drop, autumn also becomes a season of preparing for what lies ahead — snow, ice and bitter cold. For residents of central Pennsylvania, that means breaking out the winter coats, gloves, boots and snow tires. But readying a home for a long, cold season takes some preparation and entails a little more than just putting on extra layers. Winterizing a home can seem like a bothersome and maybe even unnecessary chore, but the fact is that doing some minor projects in the fall can ensure that a home is well protected when fall turns into winter. Preparing a home for winter not only protects a house for the long term, but can also protect a homeowner’s finances, too. “Winterizing and sealing make a big difference. Something like buying a new thermostat can have a long-term impact and can save a lot of money,” said Grant Rosenberger of Ace Hardware of State College. Rosenberger, managing partner and owner of the store, has been in the home improvement business for quite some time. There are several steps homeowners can take to lower utility bills and protect their investment. Rosenberger said this time of year is when many people come into his store to start the process of winterizing. “I get that question a lot, about what to do to get the house ready for winter, especially now and through October. Some people wait until the cold weather hits, but people want to know what they can do,” he said. First of all, sealing any leaks or gaps is a good place to start. According to www.energy.gov, reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of a house is a cost-effective way to cut heating


THERE ARE plenty of easy steps to take when winterizing your home. and cooling costs, improve durability and generally make a home more comfortable. Caulking and weather stripping are two simple and effective methods of sealing air leaks. Caulk is typically used for cracks and openings between things that don’t move, such as around door and window frames. Weather stripping is used to seal moveable parts, such as doors and windows that open and close. “The first thing I tell people is that they need to seal their house. It’s important to make sure that seals around doors are in good shape, and to make sure cracks are caulked and sealed. Doing these types of things are not terribly expensive,” Rosenberger said. Air leaks occur when outside air enters and air-conditioned air leaves the house through cracks and openings. During cold and windy weather, too much air may enter the house. Air leakage can contribute to to moisture in the home and can cause

problems that potentially could affect a structure’s durability. Another benefit of sealing cracks and openings is that it eliminates drafts, thereby increasing a home’s warmth and comfort during the winter months. Rosenberger said the next step beyond sealing leaks and gaps would be installing insulation, which is a more involved project that oftentimes requires consulting with an expert. Another step in weatherproofing a home for the winter is to protect the plumbing. Homeowners can do simple things such as draining the water from outdoor faucets and garden hoses, rolling up garden hoses and storing them inside, identifying any “problem” pipes that are prone to freezing in the house and consider using heat tape to keep them warm during extremely cold weather. It’s also important to ensure everyone in the family knows how to turn off the water at the source, which can mini-

mize leaking if a pipe bursts. “Shutting off the valve and making sure hoses are disconnected are important. It’s important to disconnect the garden hose during cold snaps,” said Rosenberger. “Make sure to have proper insulation between the plumbing and outside wall. Our store sells heat tape that can be used on the plumbing during cold weather. Good insulation and warm air will help prevent freezing.” And for those homeowners who are looking to do more than just weatherproof their house during cold weather, Rosenberger suggests painting the interior as a way to lift spirits when the winter doldrums hit. He said that painting rooms in a home has become a more popular project for the winter months, especially since many paints now have low or no VOC (volatile organic compounds). Using paints with low or no VOC eliminates the overwhelming odor that used to ac-

company a painting project. Historically, people painted rooms in their homes during warm weather months because they needed to keep windows open to reduce the odor. Now, more people are doing painting projects in cold weather, as it’s a good way to brighten things up during the long winter months. “The impact that paint has on a room is huge. It freshens things up and changes the entire feel. A color can make a light and airy room feel warm and cozy, and vice versa,” Rosenberger said. He said his store carries a full range of paint products, and a variety of high-quality paints across a whole range of price points. “Picking a color is important. We always encourage samples. Colors can be difficult. They can look different in different areas. “For example, a color might look a little pinker than you thought. Lighting, flooring, lots of things affect hues. Colors can look different in natural light than they do in artificial light. That’s why we say it’s important to sample the color on a section of the wall to make sure you like how it looks,” Rosenberger said. Whether preparing for winter means weatherproofing the house or painting a room, Rosenberger said he and his staff are there to help guide his customers to best meet their home improvement needs. He said that most people feel comfortable doing both painting and winterizing projects on their own, but he and his staff always try to gauge where people are when they come into the store to determine how comfortable they are with certain projects. “Everyone is different and has different levels of comfort. Winterizing is something people can do themselves. Painting is something people like to do themselves. Plumbing is something that more people are wanting to do, depending on the type of project. People are more uncomfortable with electrical projects because of the risk involved. No matter what, little things make a big difference. Whether it is filling in cracks around a window or painting a room, doing small things can help a lot.”

Home ideas for cozy fall living With autumn comes crisp falling leaves, fresh brisk air and pumpkin spice aromas. It’s time to prepare your home to spend more time indoors, decorating it with warm, cozy accents to set the tone for the season. Make your home fall-ready with the following cozy ideas:


A little “me time” is good for the soul, and sometimes you need to pamper yourself after a long day. Whether the scent is apple cinnamon, pumpkin pie or maple leaf, lighting a candle with your favorite fall fragrance creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, enhancing your sense of calm.


Transform your living room into an at-home getaway by displaying seasonal throw pillows and blankets, and adorning the space with elements from nature, like a vase filled with leaf stems and crab apple branches. Crank up the cozy factor with homemade hot cider and a crackling fireplace.


Give rooms a refreshing update, add color and create contrast in a space with accent walls. Deep colors like navy blue help create a relaxing retreat. Or, take a cue from the changing leaves and opt for warm colors, like mustard yellow or burnt orange.


Since you’ll be spending more time inside, transform an empty space like a basement or attic into a useful area for the entire family. With a little imagination and a few tools, you can create a vibrant and playful craft room, as did FrogTape Paintover Challenge winner KariAnne Wood from the blog “Thistlewood Farms.” Wood transformed an unused upstairs space in her home into a room for her children to craft, study and hang out with friends. An exciting, multifunctional space is a great way to avoid cabin fever in the months ahead.

The other type of carpet Hull offers is the commercial style carpet that is good in basements or areas that may be damp. It is easy to clean and doesn’t hold much water. These floors typical cost $1.25 to $3 a foot. Whichever style you choose, Hull has these words of advice for his customers: “When it comes to quality, you get what you pay for.”

Framing by Design.


STATE COLLEGE — With all the flooring choices out there, carpet may not seem like the most hip option, but it remains a popular one for many reasons, according to Hap Hull. Hull has been in the flooring business for 65 years and said people choose carpet because of the comfort and warmth. After all, who does not like the feeling of walking across a soft carpet early in the morning? Hull owns Hull’s Floor Covering, which has been in the Hamilton Square Shopping Center in State College since 1975. He said carpet can help keep the house warmer if you put it on the floor above a cold basement, because it acts as a layer of insulation. Safety is another reason to choose carpet, because you are less likely to slip and it is softer if you do fall, especially on stairs. There are many kinds of carpeting to choose from, and it can be overwhelming to decide which is right for you. Besides design and color, the quality of the carpet can vary with the cost. The top-of-the-line fabric is wool. It is expensive at $100 a yard, but the natural fabric is worth the price, according to Hull. He said the wool produced in the United States is too fine of a material for carpet, so the best wool to use if from places such as Afghanistan or Iran that have high altitudes, thus making the wool a stronger, coarser material. This wool will have a nice feel and it will hold up for a long time. “I’ve seen wool carpet that had been in a home for 40 years and it hadn’t shown much wear,” said Hull. Wool is desirable because it can stand up to heavy traffic and is relatively easy to clean. It is not good for places that may get wet, as it holds water. The other two main fabrics to consider are nylon and polyester. Nylon can be guaranteed up to 25 years and is a very good floor, said Hull. It can handle heavy use, and is more water resistant than wool. The cost is down is about $4 to $4.50 a square foot, so the price and the quality are something that is attractive to

many home owners. Polyester carpet runs about $2 a foot, said Hull, and the quality has improved greatly over the fast few decades. “Twenty-five years ago it was a joke, but today it is a nice floor,” said Hull, adding that they improved the manufacturing process to make the carpet more attractive. Polyester dries quickly and doesn’t stain easily.

‘Straighten Up and Fly Right’ set for Oct. 13 UNIVERSITY PARK — Prolific powerhouse jazz artists Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli will celebrate the music of Nat King Cole — “the best friend a song ever had” — with their tribute concert “Straighten Up and Fly Right” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in Eisenhower Auditorium. The program will feature Lewis on piano and Pizzarelli on vocals and guitar performing some of Cole’s unforgettable hits, including “Route 66,” “This Will Make You Laugh,” “Paper Moon,” “Nature Boy” and “Hit That Jive Jack,” as well as classic songs by Lewis. At a young age, Lewis studied classical piano, performing works by composers including Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. He was 15 when his church asked him to join the jazz band, where a congregant-musician coached him. The Chicago-based pianist-composer first piqued jazz fans’ interest with Ramsey Lewis Trio’s debut album, “Ramsey Lewis and The Gentlemen of Swing,” in 1956. But he kept them entertained with chart-toppers such as the 1965 hits “The In Crowd” and “Hang on Sloopy,” and his

leanings toward gospel and smooth-jazz styles. Since then, Lewis has released more than 80 recordings highlighting his jazz, funk and pop compositions. He won three Grammy Awards (as both a jazz and rhythm-andblues artist), and five of his albums went gold. Lewis’ musical expertise has landed him wide-ranging career opportunities, including a 13-episode “Legends of Jazz” public-television show. He is the artistic director of Jazz at Ravinia in suburban Chicago and is on the board of trustees for an inner-city music school in his home city. He also helped to form the Ramsey Lewis Foundation, which aims to connect at-risk youth with the world of music. He has hosted radio shows in Chicago, including the “The Ramsey Lewis Morning Show,” and his current syndicated program, “Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis,” airs in various cities throughout the United States. Pizzarelli grew up in a musical family — his father is New York jazz guitarist “Bucky” Pizzarelli— listening to jazz standards. Pizzarelli said he became smitten with Cole’s repertoire because it had the same ingredients as rock ‘n’ roll. “The songs were completely different than a Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett repertoire. There was this whole other jazz repertoire … that was really fun,” he said in an interview with the Center for the Performing Arts. In addition to memorizing Cole’s catalog, he became adept at adding his personal touch to the Great American Songbook with scatting, lightning-fast strum work and entertaining vocal chops. He took his talents on the road, first with his father and then with John Pizzarelli Trio, with which he has toured since 1992. In his 36 years of professional recording, Pizzarelli has

He has performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Live with Regis & Kelly,” “The CBS Early Show” and with hiphop/soul group The Roots on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Sondheim musical ‘Assassins’ offers glimpse into dark world of killers By ANNE WALKER correspondent@centrecountygazette.com

STATE COLLEGE — FUSE Productions director Richard Biever refers to the upcoming production of Assassins as “a tough show, very in-yourface.” In the framework of a dark, creepy carnival game, the musical takes an imaginary look into the thoughts and motivations of individuals who, successful or not, made attempts to kill American presidents. Nine attackers joined by their accomplices/supporters, a proprietor who supplies weapons, a balladeer who relates historical

fact, the son of one attacker and an ensemble divulge the thought processes and actions leading to each attempted killing. The catchy, thoughtprovoking Stephen Sondheim score punctuates the action and expands on the character’s mental pathways. “‘Assassins’ tries to highlight what these people went through that led them to believe they had no other options,” Biever said. John Wilkes Booth, played by FUSE lighting designer Tyler Sperrazza, sets the precedent for presidential killings. “It’s a challenge to find Booth’s humanity,” Sperrazza said of the man

Contact marketing@appoutdoors.com. — Compiled by Gazette staff Assassins, from page 34 Justin Shondeck, to shoot Kennedy. In a video produced by FUSE, Shondeck discussed his exploration of the character and shared his thoughts. “Oswald tried really hard to make and to do great things, but nothing really worked out for him,” he said, “the only way that he could feel worthy was to kill the president of the United States.” Other assassins appear. They support each other’s insecurities, disappointments and twisted rationalizations. The most notable attackers include Ronald Reagan shooter John Hinckley, played by Steve Travis, and Squeaky Fromme, who tried to shoot Gerald Ford. Cat Rokavec, a veteran FUSE performer, portrays the notoriously brainwashed Charles Manson devotee Fromme. “Manson offered her a family,” said Rokavec, “and she developed a crazy obsession with winning his approval.” The five remaining assassins don’t typically make it into most history texts. Sam Byck (Jonathan O’Harrow) tried to kill Richard Nixon. Sara Jane Moore (Kat Shondeck) attempted and failed to kill Ford. Giuseppe Zangara (Tim Vetere) tried to kill Franklin D. Roosevelt. William McKinley’s assassin Leon Czolgosz is played by Kyler ShermanWilkins. Perhaps the most disturbed and disturbing of all presidential attackers, Charles Guiteau, shot James Garfield twice from behind. “He believed God chose him to remove the president,” said James McCready, who plays Guiteau. “He believed he was chatty and gregarious, but he was really creepy and no one wanted him in the room.” Rokavec added that, while watching this show, “if you don’t learn about the assassins, you will learn something about yourself.”

IST student attends career fair using virtual self By JORDAN FORD Special to the Gazette

UNIVERSITY PARK — Stephanie Warnock takes a deep breath and approaches the recruiter’s table. Dressed professionally, she introduces herself, speaking clearly as she begins her elevator speech. Like the 500 other students attending the Penn State College of Information Sciences and Technology’s Pro Expo career fair, she’s on the hunt for an internship. The only difference is that she is nearly 200 miles away. Warnock, a 27-year-old adult learner pursuing a bachelor’s degree online in information sciences and technology through Penn State World Campus, lives in Philadelphia. She recently attended IST’s Pro Expo on the University Park campus using a mobile-telepresence robot featuring an iPad attached to a two-wheeled, self-balancing vehicle. “I was both excited and terrified to drive the machine,” said Warnock. “I was worried about crashing it and how I would look on the screen, but I was also excited

because it was such a unique opportunity. Once I knew it was a possibility, I didn’t need any convincing to participate.” Also known as a Mobile Virtual Presence Device machine, the robot enabled her to have valuable one-on-one interactions with corporate recruiters from companies she is interested in working with, including Vanguard, KPMG, Deloitte and Merck. Warnock controlled the device remotely from Philadelphia and was able to test drive it before the event. “Driving the machine was really easy,” said Warnock. “There are a few buttons that you tap and hold to go forward or move from left to right. There’s also an option to make the machine taller or shorter, so I was able to look at who I was talking to in the eye without them having to kneel down.” The opportunity was created through a partnership between Penn State’s Center for Online Innovation in Learning, which owns the machine, and the College of IST’s Office of Career Solutions and Corporate Engagement, which hosts Pro Expo.

“Stephanie reached out to me about career fair opportunities for World Campus students,” said Rita Griffith, a World Campus internship course instructor and corporate relations coordinator in IST’s Office of Career Solutions and Corporate Engagement. “Through IST’s past collaboration with COIL and World Campus, we thought this was a perfect chance to connect recruiters with one of our talented distance learners.” The college launched Pro Expo in 2005 as a way to connect corporations exclusively with IST students to promote career and internship opportunities. Since its inception, the event has helped hundreds of students find internships and professional placements, and IST continues to expand its professional development services through executive mentoring, interview preparation and networking events. Throughout the event, Warnock connected with many of the 65 companies on hand to recruit IST students. While her virtual presence made her stand out in the crowd, most found the experience similar

to interacting with students in the building. “It took some getting used to, but Stephanie was well-prepared,” said Abby Cooper, the consulting campus recruiter with Deloitte. “Once I made sure she knew that I was looking at her resume and not the floor, it was as comfortable and natural as talking to a student who was actually in the building.” Warnock was excited to use the machine, which helped her bridge the gap between her online education and the traditional college experience. “The experience was awesome,” said Warnock. “As the event became more crowded, everyone had to sort of part the seas for me to get through, but once I started to speak to the recruiters, it felt like I was there in person.” Warnock enrolled in IST through World Campus because of the flexibility it offered her to complete a degree online and manage her own schedule. She currently works full time as an accountant in a Philadelphia law office and enjoys having the freedom to learn on her own time.

State College 814.235.1710 | Spring Mills 814.422.8836 | Zion 814.383.2700 | Centre Hall 814.364.1600 *The TimeLine Home Equity Line of Credit is a variable rate line of credit with a fixed rate option. This loan has an introductory APR and payment for the first year then adjusts based on the highest prime rate listed in the Money section of the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) plus a margin determined at the time you apply for the loan. To open the advertised product and receive the advertised introductory 1.89% APR (annual percentage rate) requires a line of credit of at least $10,000 and a maximum of $250,000. After the first year, your variable rate can change daily. For example, the current variable rate would be 4.00% APR for a loan amount between $10,000-$49,999.99 and a credit score between 720-779. The maximum APR is 16%. This loan has a maximum term of ten years during which you can draw and repay the available credit limit. Any balance remaining at the end of that time that has not been paid must be repaid over a 15 year term. Fees to open this loan generally range between $0 and $1,000 depending on appraisal requirements and property location. You will be required to maintain property insurance on the collateral. You may also be required to maintain flood insurance on the collateral, if necessary, because of the location.

During the 10 year draw period of the TimeLine, this loan allows the APR on all or portions of your outstanding loan balance (a “Unit”) to be locked. You may have up to a maximum of 3 Units at any one time. The maximum repayment term for a Unit is 15 years. The terms do not change until the Unit balance is paid in full. Fixed rate options are the fully indexed APR plus .50% for terms of 36 months; the fully indexed APR plus 1.00% for terms of 37-60 months; the fully indexed APR plus 1.50% for 61-96 months; the fully indexed APR plus 2.00% for 97-120 months; and the fully indexed APR plus 2.50% for 121-180 months. Different margins are used to determine the fully indexed APR based on the applicant(s) credit score (s) and the loan amount when the TimeLine Home Equity Line of Credit is opened. There is a lock in fee of $50 each time you lock in a Unit. During the TimeLine Home Equity Line of Credit draw period, payments reducing the principal balance on any portion of the balance, including Units become available by increasing the credit available on your TimeLine Home Equity Line of Credit. You should consult a tax advisor for the tax deductibility of this loan. All TimeLine loans are subject to credit approval.
