Editor’s Prologue By Sandie Biddle, managing editor Editor@CentreCountyGazette.com CCGazette@Hughes.net

Turkeys, and whitetails, and bears…oh, boy! ’Tis the season! Thanks to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, we’re featuring seasons, bag limits, and handy facts about hunting wild turkeys, whitetail deer, and bears. A timely reminder from Penn DOT: Since the time-change is Sunday, November 6, there is less daylight at the end of the day – and it’s deer-mating season. This combo makes for dangerous driving. More than two-third of the accidents involving deer occur this time of year. Be careful out there! That’s no way to bag a buck! There’s a lot of donating going on! The Milesburg Lions gave Centre Crest a lifesaving defibrillator. ABATE donated a bunch of food to the food bank in Snow Shoe. A group of Brownies raised money for a lady with cancer, church volunteers donated their time doing chores for CentrePeace, and a spelling bee was held to benefit the literacy counsel. The next two weeks are packed with church bazaars and craft fairs. Buy from your creative neighbors and get a lot of gift shopping done before Thanksgiving! Scouting for Food takes place tomorrow (Saturday, 11/5) in most of Centre County. If you didn’t get a pickup reminder from a Scout, consider taking a donation to your community food bank. None of our neighbors should go hungry this holiday season. Be sure to visit the museum in Bellefonte and appreciate the new exhibit – architecture and design, highlighting the accomplishments of Bellefonte’s Anna Keichline, suffragist, inventor, WWI spy, and Pennsylvania’s first certified female architect. Look for Karen’s fascinating article and photos. Sam and Ebun were not spooked by the Halloween festivities they attended this week. No wonder, since the Rebersburg, Centre Hall, and State College events were teeming with cute elementary kids. Next week we feature news, events, special offers, and military charities to honor our veterans. We invite towns, clubs, and veterans’ service organizations to share their plans for parades and ceremonies. Considering the sacrifices they took for our country, every day should be Veterans’ Day. Thank you, veterans, for your service.

Centre Count y Schools Grandparents’ Day at St. John

On Wednesday, October 19, St. John Catholic School students celebrated Grandparents’ Day. Following an All School Mass in their honor with a theme of “Grandparents are Our Angels on Earth,” grandparents and special friends were invited back to the classrooms to visit and enjoy some light refreshments. Shown, The Gazette’s own Vicki Gillette with her granddaughter.

BELLEFONTE – Miss Marchione’s third grade class spent the month of October honoring our Blessed Mother, 0Mary, and learning about the most holy rosary.

This photo was taken just before the group, along with other Bald Eagle Area students, traveled to Lock Haven University to participate in Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson’s Government Outreach Program. The Outreach Program gives students insight into the role of government in their daily lives and provides them an opportunity to become familiar with the operations of government, by interacting with the individuals who make or influence those decisions. BEA’s Stock Market Team is currently competing in the Centre County Stock Market Game Challenge against fellow students from CPI and the Bellefonte, Penns Valley, and State College Area school districts.

STATE COLLEGE – Alice in Wonderland was the theme for the day as students, parents, teachers and grandparents celebrated grandparents and gradpals day on September 29 at Young Scholars of Central PA Charter School (YSCP) in State College. The afternoon activities included songs, poems in English and Chinese, and a short video titled, I Love You Grandma. Participants got to kick up their heels to oldies music and enjoy talking and playing fun board games or working on coloring projects together. In all, about 250 people attended the event, including 60 grandparents and grandpals. YSCP is a no-tuition charter school for students in kindergarten to eighth grade that focuses on teaching students to be life-long learners while preparing them for a global economy. YSCP has received numerous Keystone Achievement Awards from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and scores highly on yearly progress reports. The school has a current enrollment of about 200 students from Centre County and surrounding communities. More information is available at www.YSCP.org or (814) 237-9727.

STATE COLLEGE – On Friday, November 11, Grace Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten (GLPK) students, joined by their younger siblings and parents, will march downtown with their teachers and several ex-servicemen and women from the Armed Forces during their eighth annual Veterans Day march. The annual tradition began in 2004 when Teri Statham, Education Director of the school, decided to expand her junior kindergarteners’ educational unit about Thanksgiving and Native Americans to include what it means to be an American and to serve our country. What began as a single class of 16 students and their teachers marching to patriotic music gradually grew to encompass the entire school. Teri recalls, “After our experience the first year, the kindergarten class asked to join us. Inspired by the idea, one of the teachers of a class of threeyear-old students asked to join the group. When the other teachers saw how much the younger children enjoyed the parade, they asked to participate the following year. We’ve continued the tradition ever since.” Now there are ten classes of children ages 2 ½ through kindergarten as well as their teachers, families, military cadets from Penn State, and veterans associated with Grace Lutheran Church who march around town to bring recognition to our Armed Forces. The parade sports several military vehicles as well as nearly a hundred smiling red-, white- and blue-clad children and chaperones waving American flags and carrying banners alongside several veterans. If you are in downtown State College between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on November 11 and spot a large group of young children proudly representing their country, it’s probably students from GLPK. Consider taking a moment to cheer them on and to echo their pride by thanking a few veterans for their service to our country.

Future Campaign at Penn State – a capital campaign to raise $2 million over a seven-year period; and the inter-collegiate athletics campaign committee where she helps to identify prospective contributors. Occasionally Kay holds a game night at her home to raise money for charitable causes. Most recently, Alice Clark, Sara Songer and Kay prepared dinner for invited guests. Janet Chambers was also involved. Individuals voluntarily wrote checks to their choice of either Women’s Resource, or the Centre County Youth Service Bureau. Donations totaled approximately $2,000 with half going to each charitable organization. “Kay volunteers at the Mount Nittany gift shop,” said Janet Chambers, marketing and public-relations consultant, Mount Nittany Medical Center. “She began as a high-school student, when the hospital was located in Bellefonte.” “Though I live in State College, my heart is still in Bellefonte,” Kay affirmed. “I’ve often said that if Bellefonte had Disney’s imagination and Rockefeller’s money, it could become the Victorian Williamsburg!”

I recently bought a fascinating book that explores our relationships with animals. It’s great research by renowned anthropologist Hal Herzog and I want to share some things you may not have consciously thought about – but will ring true to you once I point them out. Recently someone asked an ethical question concerning bluebirds. She had spent a lot of money to entice a pair of bluebirds to nest in her back yard, even purchasing a snake-proof bluebird nest box and special bird baths. She kept a supply of meal worms in her fridge because she heard that bluebirds love them. She did attract a pair of birds, but they were common sparrows. They hijacked the box and laid five eggs in it. Her question was purely ethical. Should she destroy the eggs of the plain sparrow to make room for a pair of lovely bluebirds? Legally, in ethical situations, cuteness shouldn’t count. But while cuteness may not count in the world of strict morals, it matters a lot in how most people think about the treatment of animal species. For example, research has shown that the amount of money people say they would donate to help an endangered species correlates to the size of the animal’s eyes. This is bad news for the rare giant Chinese salamander. It is an ugly amphibian, a beady-eyed six-foot-long mass of brown slime. You don’t see pictures of them on the appeal letters. But contrast that animal with a Chinese panda bear and which do you think gets its photo on the envelope? Why do we care about the panda and not the salamander, the eagle but not the vulture, the bluebird but not the sparrow? The way we think about animals is all too often determined by how attractive the creatures are, their size, the shape of their head, whether they are furry and how closely they resemble humans. Humans do seem to be attracted to animals instinctively. A photo of a puppy always elicits ooos and aaahs from any audience. The idea that humans are innately drawn to anything that looks like a baby is gaining ground. Young animals share features with human infants – large foreheads, big eyes, bulging cheeks and soft contours. Not to mention that wonderful puppy perfume! Researchers refer to these characteristics as “baby releasers” because they automatically bring out our parental urges. Bambi is the classic example of manipulation. Walt Disney originally urged animators to draw the fawn as accurately as possible. The problem was that the sketches were not

“cute” enough. The solution was “babyfication.” They reduced the length of Bambi’s muzzle and made his eyes bigger with lots of white showing. Bambi morphed into a surrogate human baby, and who doesn’t cry when thinking about the despair he feels over losing a loved one? Another great example of this is Mickey Mouse. He started life in 1928 as a nasty character named Steamboat Willie. Over the years, Disney changed Willie’s name and image into a kinder, gentler mouse, with the baby-like features to match. The public responded by making Mickey a beloved cartoon character. The role of cuteness in our attitudes toward animals is illustrated very clearly by the public’s outrage over the annual “harvest” of baby harp seals on the ice floes of Canada. These seals are irresistible right after birth; they are helpless, pure white and their eyes are large. We’ve all seen the gory photos of their death in the interest of fashion. In 1987, the Canadian government caved in – kind of. They prohibited killing seal pups under 14 days old, which happens to be when their fur becomes darker and the animals start to look more adult-like. They didn’t stop the baby seal hunt; they stopped the “cute” baby seal hunt. All of this translates to dogs as well. Humans have now produced canine breeds in which full-grown dogs resemble perpetual puppies. The babyish snouts of breeds like pugs and bulldogs make for terrible respiratory problems and their bulging puppy eyes barely fit into their shallow sockets. By breeding dogs for neoteny (the scientific term for juvenile features in adults), we have also created pets that are emotionally immature and prone to canine versions of our own neuroses. This has been a boon for big pharma, which has now developed repackaged versions of Valium and Prozac for our depressed, anxious and obsessive-compulsive pets. In my opinion, if we become more aware of why we do the things we do, we might think a little harder before we do them. Just because we can control the “looks” of certain breeds, should we push them to the very limits of health? I think not.

THE GAZETTE - SERVING CENTRE COUNTY

Like many of you, I’m sure, the term “Inklings” brings a smile to my face. It was the name of a group of men who met regularly in a pub near Oxford, but the outstanding thing about this group is that among its members were C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. My admiration of Lewis is well known and I love anything by or about the man. So naturally when I saw a book with the title Inklings by author Melanie M. Jeschke, I bought it, hoping that it would be about this great literary

group. It was, but in a round-about way. The story opens on November, 26, 1963 in Oxford, England. David MacKenzie has spent the day at a poorly attended funeral. He thought that since C. S. Lewis was so well known that more of his friends and family would have been there. The thing that did impress him was the lit candle on top of the coffin that stayed lit even as the funeral procession moved out to the cemetery. David decides at that point to be more like Lewis, to dedicate his life to God. As part of this decision, he starts a new group of Inklings. Their purpose will be to discuss the ideas that the original group had written about and live a Godlike life. The only problem is his girlfriend,

Charlotte. Charlotte does not believe that there is a God and does not want this religion thing to change their relationship. Enter Kate Hughes, a student from America, and what follows is a fairly typical love story. Kate and David not only have to struggle to remain chaste as their love grows, but Charlotte is not willing to let David go. The story was a little trite and even awkward at times, but I was so fascinated by the details about Lewis that were worked into the story, I kept reading. I think that I was secretly looking for mistakes that Jeschke made about his life. The author did take some small liberties which she points them out in her notes at the beginning of the book.

8 Million Reasons to Vote for Democrat Jon Eich for County Commissioner on 11/8 Centre Crest Upgrades — When the county was allocated $1.3 million in ARRA bonds in 2009, Jon quickly called for using those funds at Centre Crest. Centre Crest Pharmacy — Jon compelled the other Commissioners to accept the best bid — 20% lower ($2 million a year) than existing charges on the top 100 meds. Employee Health Insurance — When a 30% increase was expected, Eich brought in a co-op used by other PA counties forcing the other bidders to develop better proposals. The final outcome was a 0% increase for 2011 — saving $2 million. 9-1-1 System — In 2008 & 09, Jon helped secure $1.5 million in grants. In 2010, he encouraged the Fire Chiefs’ Association to submit a grant application to purchase radios – which brought in $910,000. In 2011, Jon prepared a $425,000 grant application with the Centre County Ambulance Association for more radios. Freezing Elected Official Salaries — Jon initiated a 4 year salary freeze for the countys’ elected officials, including Commissioner salaries.

How You Can Help

Boy Scouts are Scouting for Food Nov. 5 The Juniata Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America will be conducting their annual Scouting for Food Drive, again this year. In the next few days the scouts will be placing door hangers at residences throughout the county. The door hanger will instruct people to place non-perishable

items outside their front doors on November 5 by 8:30 a.m. The scouts will be collecting the items on November 5 and taking them to the local food banks and food pantries. ALL of the items collected will stay locally to help our neighbors who are in need of food. Please consider helping

out with this worthy cause. It helps the food banks and food pantries with their increasing demand for food assistance of those in need. If you do not receive a door hanger, please consider making a food donation to your local food bank/food pantry. This will be the 22nd year for the Scouting for Food Drive in the Centre region. If you would like more information on how to join Scouting, please visit www.beascout.org and enter your zip code for a listing of Scouting programs in your area.

A.B.A.T.E. Chapter Donates to Snow Shoe Food Bank By Sam Stitzer

SNOW SHOE – The Centre County chapter of A.B.A.T.E. (Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education) delivered food to the Mountaintop Food Bank located in the Snow Shoe United Methodist Church. They collected $778 from raffles and donations at their monthly meetings, and used the money to purchase food items. According to Stephen LaMar, who handles public relations for the A.B.A.T.E. chapter, the Snow Shoe Food Bank is one of the charities their group focuses on to help, because of a significant need for food donations in that area. The food was transported in the back on an SUV, while other A.B.A.T.E. members rode their bikes from the Nittany Mall to Snow Shoe, passing piles of snow along the way. Brrrr! Mountaintop Food Bank manager, Phoebe Borger, was grateful to the A.B.A.T.E. members for their generous donation. The Mounta intop Food Bank distributes food from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month to needy recipients in the area.

First-Ever Central Pennsylvania Crossword Competition STATE COLLEGE – Crossword puzzlers raised more than $3,500 in pledges to benefit the Mid-State Literacy Council at the First Annual Central Pennsylvania Crossword Competition on Sunday, October 23 at Schlow Library. The winners, pictured from left to right are: First Place – Mark Hayes, Most Money Raised – Bob Potter, Senior Division – Martha Hummel, Third Place – Russell Frank, MSLC Executive Director Amy Wilson, Second Place – Rebecca Ardoline, Junior Division – Sophie Huddart, and Competition Coordinator Katie O’Toole.

Sixty members of the State College First Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were at CentrePeace for a Day of Service recently. The members, young and old, all found work to do. The flower beds were trimmed and mulched. The curbs and fences were mended and painted. Inside CentrePeace, the windows were washed and the furniture was rearranged. Donated items were unpacked, cleaned, and priced. The Transitions House was power-washed and the stones were reset for a patio. Sheds were cleaned and assistance was given in the upholstery shop. The young children had an assignment too – they made Christmas cards for the inmates of the local institutions. According to the CentrePeace Web site, “The goals of Centre Peace are to promote Restorative Justice and decrease victimization and crime in our communities by improving the attitudes and capabilities of prison inmates through productive work and training in job and interpersonal skills.”  Part of this program the CentrePeace Used Household and Furniture Outlet sells sofas, chairs, dinettes, coffee and end tables, lamps, appliances, dishes, TVs, sporting goods, linens, toys, knick-knacks, etc. – all at bargain prices. Volunteers are needed and appreciated in keeping CentrePeace moving forward in their mission. The State College First Ward decided on this particular project as the Presidency of the Church had announced in the April 2011 General Conference, “To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Church welfare program, members worldwide will be invited to parJake Powell and Matthew Liechty help re-set ticipate in a day of the paving stones outside CentrePeace service.” on the Benner Pike.

going LOCAL! an Adventure Eaters Guide By Ken Hull

Greetings Gazetters! In thinking about who I was going to feature in this month’s installment, I realized that not only would I be at Café Lemont this Saturday (November 5) for a book signing, but that Café Lemont didn’t really get its deserved full feature in going LOCAL! Volume 2. Why? Well, read on, and you’ll find out. The following is pretty much from the www. goi ng LOC A Lpa . com Web site. “Here’s a wonderful and super cozy café that just opened in my birthplace of Lemont in August 2010. It’s located in The Lemont House, an historic building that stands at the corner of Pike Street and Boalsburg Road. Literally hours before my manuscript for this book was to leave my PC to head for production, I had the pleasure of running in for a quick look around. The place is awesome – the interior décor is lovely with warm colors, and the place a great relaxing vibe. Out front they have a sweet little porch where you can sip your coffee, eat nice bite, and watch the world go by. I can’t wait to return and take it all in. So it wasn’t till after the new book was off to production, did I have the chance to return, order a latte, and take a seat in the gallery room. It was a bit chilly that day so sitting out on the porch was not such a good idea. That was fine, because this room was just beautiful! Hanging upside down from the ceiling were a bunch of white parasols defusing the lighting above, and big old windows provided lots of natural light from outside. The furniture and furnishings were all vintage and filled the room along with the light

conversation of locals enjoying a relaxing Saturday morning. I chose a seat on a little antique sofa in the corner and looked over their menu. I purposely didn’t have breakfast because I heard Café Lemont had some amazing offering – they don’t serve meals, per se, but they have a very nice selection of Baked Goods and Lunch/Brunch Items. The following are a few off the menu: Muffin, Scones, Cookie, Brownie, Coffee Cakes, Specialty Cakes, Bagel, Diner Sourdough Toast, Wrap, Quiche/Frittata, Suzie Wong’s Egg Roll, Pot Stickers, Cup of Soup/Chili, Greek Yogurt, Daily Snack Plate, Edamame, Egg Sandwich, and Chicken Puffkin. What’s really cool about the coffee, tea, and food here is that it’s made from some of the area’s finest culinary artists, bakers, roasters and aficionados. They end the menu with “Buying local makes for happy communities.” Cool! Who’s “they?” Well Café Lemont wouldn’t be such a cool place without cool people behind it. Michael Beck and Jodi McWhirter are cool, sweet, and totally into what they’re doing at this little café in the historic Lemont House in the quaint village of Lemont. Both are passionate for sure, and Michael, a local, comes from a long history of the café, and coffee industry. In fact he worked in San Francesco for a number of years at a café that would eventually launch Starbucks! But after some family stuff brought him back to State College, he did some bartending where he met Jodi (ah, how things work out sometimes) and the wheels were set in motion. Jodi is a transplant to the area and came here as a graphic designer (no wonder the place is so well put together). Even after leaving that to be a full-time mom, she never stopped looking for creative outlets. She considers herself a people person, so her creativity found itself in volunteering and community service. She had never been in the food service industry though, but that was all about to change one day when she and Michael drove though Lemont on their way to the Art Alliance.

2011–2012

When they passed by the Lemont House that day, Michael saw a For Rent sign and said to Jodi “That would make a great place for a coffee shop.” Nothing more was said till the woman at the Art Alliance mentioned without knowing anything about Michael’s comment “Lemont really needs a coffee shop.” Well, sometimes God gives us hints, and sometimes flashing signs – this seemed to be the latter. After leaving there, the Michael and Jodi walked into the Lemont House and asked about the space. Now, several months and lots of hard work later, the two are in business together, a coffee shop in Lemont is open, Michael’s back in the biz, and Jodi is spreading her creative wings, and man is community feeling the love! Café Lemont is what a coffee shop should be – locally owned, locally minded, casual & cozy, super sweet, and serving well-brewed coffee & teas, delicious local baked goods & foods, and all under the love and passion of two people who found their calling together at a time and place that needed them both. Please stop in and see and taste what I mean. It’s truly a wonderful place. Enjoy!

How Green is Penns Valley? Energy fair shows off renewable energy systems Article & photos by Sam Stitzer

The Penns Valley Conservation Association held a Renewable Energy and Conservation Fair in the cafeteria of the Penns Valley High School on Saturday, October 22. Displays were set up by many local firms specializing in the use and installation of renewable energy systems for homes and commercial buildings. Oakes Fletcher, of Enviroedge, Inc. in State College described the solar thermal systems his company sells and installs. In their system, the sun heats copper rods on black aluminum plates inside of evacuated glass tubes. The upper ends of the rods get “insanely hot,” in Oakes’ words. Water is pumped over them, and goes to room heaters or a domestic water tank. Enviroedge also deals in solar electric systems, and has installed them in State College, Zion, Lock Haven, and one in a remote cabin with no other source of electricity in the Renovo area. Enviroedge can make either grid-tied installations, which supplement the customer’s purchased electricity – or stand-alone systems with storage batteries for off-grid, independent power or for use as backup systems during power failures. The fair featured several vendors dealing in solar electric systems, as well as wind power, and high efficiency stoves for home heating. The highlight of the fair was a bus tour of three local renewable energy installations in the Penns Valley area. The first stop was literally across the road at the Penns Valley School District’s new biomass boiler heating plant. A dedicated building has been constructed, housing a 9.6-million-BTU capacity biomass boiler which will supply heat for the Penns Valley High School, Elementary & Intermediate School, and a maintenance building, by burning wood chips. Penns Valley Superintendent of Schools, Brian Griffith, conducted a most informative tour of the new facility. He noted that biomass systems can use switchgrass, corn, or wood chips for fuel. The district chose wood chips because of their low price and local availability. The new boiler burns

Ten-kilowatt array of solar panels supplies power for Greg and Mary Kay Williams’ barn.

30 times cleaner than oil burners, and will save the district $150,000 per year over fuel oil at current prices, yielding a payback period of just 4.5 years. The burner heats water, which is pumped through insulated underground piping to the school buildings, where it runs through the various room heaters, and back to the burner for reheating. The system works much like the pellet stoves used in many homes. Fuel is delivered by rotating augers to the firebox, where fans force air through the burner for very efficient combustion. Griffith said that 50 tons of wood chips produce just two 55 gallon drums of ashes, which can then be used as crop fertilizer. Particulate ash is removed by a cyclone separator, so it does not go out the stack, thereby reducing emissions to very low levels. When asked how you light the burner, Griffith said “It’s a complicated system: you put some paper in there and light it with a match!” prompting a few chuckles from the tour group. The next stop was Greg and Mary Kay Williams’ barn in Penn Hall. The Williams’ own and operate the Cooke Tavern Soups Company, which packages all-natural dry soup mixes in a refurbished barn on their property. All the electric power for the barn is supplied by a 10-kilowatt array of photovoltaic (solar) cells. The bank of solar cells faces due south, and is tilted at a 40-degree angle for maximum sun exposure. The cells are wired in series to produce 600 volts of direct current. Inside the barn, a large inverter converts the power to 120 volts alternating current, to power the lights and heating equipment. On sunny days, the system actually produces more power than needed, and the excess power is fed back into West Penn Power’s grid for credit. Greg Williams said that the system cost was close to $75,000, but with government grants and credits, his outlay was only about $15,000. The final stop was at the Millheim home of Phil and Sharon Yanak. The Yanaks wanted to try solar for several years. When they built their new home in 2000, it included a sun room for

passive solar heat gain. They later added a solar waterheating system. Solar thermal and electric panels were The final step was a exhibited by Envinity, Inc. of State College. bank of solar electric panels for the entire house, installed this summer. The system cost about $40,000, but state and federal grants paid about half the cost. Seeing these environmentally friendly installations brought to mind the title of the old movie How Green Was My Valley. The 1941 film had nothing to do with “going green” in the modern sense, but it seems like the title could be describing Penns Valley in 2011. With solar heating, solar electricity generation, and ultra-clean biomass heating plants, Penns Valley is indeed becoming very “green.” This seems like a step in the right direction, by helping to make a cleaner environment, and reducing our dependence on petroleum products. Alvin Smith examines the solar panel wiring.

No Tricks, Just Treats & Money for HOPE Article & photos by Sam Stitzer

REBERSBURG/CENTRE HALL – Elementary schools in Penns Valley celebrated autumn and Halloween recently, beginning on Friday, October 28, at the Rebersburg Elementary School. The students there held their annual Fall Festival, with many events occurring all day, and culminating with a parade of costumed kids hitting the streets of Rebersburg for trick or treating. I arrived at the school at mid-morning, and found the second grade class making paper spiders, led by substitute teacher Hal Hallock, in a wizard costume. Mr. Hallock performed a magic trick, making fingers appear to move from one hand to another. The kids weren’t fooled by his sleight of hand, and were soon doing the trick themselves. Since it was Red Ribbon week, which emphasizes living a drug-free life, Michelle Shawver was reading a book about saying no to drugs to the students in another classroom. Down the hall, in the fourth grade classroom, Ben Macneal, from Macneal Orchards in Livonia, was teaching students about the many kinds of apples they Keara Tice (center) passes the Northwest Bank in Centre Hall. produce. He enlisted the students to help sort apples, with the less than perfect ones going in the cider apples crate. The students all were given samples of apples to eat. In the first grade classroom, teacher Robin Kabilko and para-educator Lynette Breon were leading the kids in a game of adjective Bingo. Halloween symbols, such as pumpkins, witch, candy, monster, and others were written on the board, and the students picked adjectives to describe them. The adjectives were written on Bingo cards, and as Mrs. Kabilko called out the words, the students placed markers over the words on their cards. Four in a row produced a callout of “Bingo!” A piece of candy was the prize for winning. This was a clever way for the kids to learn and to have fun doing it. After the Bingo games, the students were asked to name adjectives which describe Mrs. Kabilko and Mrs. Breon. Words like pretty, smart, and helpful came up, and then it happened: referFirst grader Dalton ring to Mrs. Breon, someone said “old!” Keith shows his fangs!

A collective groan erupted from all in the room, but Mrs. Breon took it in stride, smiling, at least on the outside! Finally, at 1 p.m. the kids lined up in full costumes and paraded up one side of Main Street, and down the other, greeted by citizens handing out sweet goodies to the kids. I’m not sure who had more fun, the kids or the citizens of Rebersburg, but Main Street was filled with the sounds of laughter and constant chatter by both children and adults. Rebersburg residents hand out candy on Main Street. It was great to see everyone enjoying this fall tradition. An angel walks the On Monday, October 31, the 215 students at the streets of Rebersburg.

Bellefonte Art Museum Showcases Pennsylvania’s First Woman Architect By Karen Dabney

BELLEFONTE – Anna Wagner Keichline of Bellefonte was a woman ahead of her time. In 1920, before women had won the right to vote, Keichline (1889-1943) became the first female registered architect in Pennsylvania. A true Renaissance woman, she held seven patents, worked as an industrial designer and architect, ran her own business, led The photo portrait a woman’s suffrage march, and volAnna sent with her 1918 unteered to become a special agent application to become a for Military Intelligence in World Special Agent in Military War I. Unlike other women of that Intelligence era, she owned and drove a car. Keichline’s work and achievements will be showcased in a new exhibit in the Bellefonte Art Museum’s Architecture and Design Gallery. The opening reception will take place at the museum, 133 N. Allegheny Street, on Sunday, November 6 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. The curator of the exhibit, Keichline’s great-niece Nancy Perkins, said she didn’t hear about her unusual great-aunt until she became interested in industrial design. “When my relatives realized what I was going into, career-wise, they told me about her. I’ve become the archivist of this person’s life.” One of the items in the exhibit is an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, dated October 18, 1903, that recounts how 14-year-old Anna Keichline won first prize at the Centre County Fair for an oak card table and walnut chest made in her own workshop. The article reports that she planned to make industrial design her life’s study. Perkins said that Keichline studied mechanical engineerAnna Keitchline’s patented K brick ing at Pennsylvania State

In 2002, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania installed a College for a year. Then she transferred to Cornell and in 1911, became the fifth woman to receive an architecture commemorative historical marker about Anna Keichline on degree from the school.

Union (1927), the Plaza Theatre in Bellefonte (1925), and six Bellefonte homes (1916-1939). Her preferred building materials were brick and stone. In her role as inventor, Keichline held patents on kitchen designs, such as her 1912 patent on a space-saving kitchen sink for apartments, and a patent on a folding bed. The exhibit offers a portfolio of her drawings and patents that visitors can look through.

Spookfest: Afternoon of Halloween Fun Brownies Sponsor Fundraiser By Ebun Adewumi

Article & photos by Sam Stitzer

STATE COLLEGE – On Sunday October 30, the Centre Life Link EMS held their firstever Spookfest, a family event to benefit the State College Food Bank. The State College Spikes and radio station B94.5 were also sponsoring the event. Held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Life Link, as well as inside the building, families came out in their Halloween costumes to enjoy the fun. Children of all ages in various costumes ranging from a princess to angry birds enjoyed the carnival-like games, cookies and apple cider, making crafts, face painting and, of course, candy. With music provided by the radio station and the relatively warm Sunday afternoon, it was hard to imagine that just the day before the Centre Region was blanketed in its first snowfall of the season. A big hit with everyone was getting to “ride” on the stretcher in and out of the “haunted ambulance.” Participants were even asked to pretend to be sick much to the delight of the willing partaker and everyone watching. The event was free with just a suggested donation of a canned good for the food bank.

CENTRE HALL – Brownie Troop #4, of Centre Hall, seems to be jinxed by bad weather. A year ago last summer, the girls had a Luau Day Camp drenched by a pouring rainstorm, and last year their Christmas caroling time was hit with an ice storm. In a stroke of genius, they performed their caroling by telephone. So I guess it was no surprise that Mother Nature dumped a freak snowstorm on Centre Hall on October 29, the day of Troop #4’s K’umbathon fundraiser for Centre Hall Elementary School Secretary, Jackie Shawver. What is a K’umbathon? K’umba is a dance/fitness activity based on the popular Zumba program, but with various moves added and choreographed by Brownie Troop leader, Krista Winkelblech (The K in K’umba stands for Krista). K’umba combines elements of gymnastics, calisthenics, and modern dance into an aerobic workout which builds physical fitness. The K’umbathon was held in the basement of Grace United Methodist Church in Centre Hall, and was a nonstop marathon of dance and exercise from 9 a.m. till 11 a.m. The music used was of rock, pop, and dance styles, with the overwhelming favorite song being Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Forty women and girls each paid a $10 entry fee to participate. The proceeds went to help Jackie Shawver, who’s been fighting cancer. When the money was counted, the total was actually over $800, thanks to many donations over and above the $10 entry fees. Near the end of the event, Jackie Shawver stopped in at the church basement, and received cheers and applause, as well as many hugs and smiles. She has been recovering from recent surgery, and has returned to her job at the Centre Hall-Potter Elementary School. She thanked everyone at the K’umbathon for their efforts on her behalf. So even if the weather outside was frightful, the warmth inside was delightful. It was the warmth of people coming together to help a friend in need, and no freak snowstorm can put a chill on that!

Riding on the stretcher

Shorter Daylight, More Active Deer Drive with extra caution The end of Daylight Savings Time is bringing an earlier nightfall, and PennDOT is cautioning motorists that most crashes involving deer happen at this time of year. Deer are most active during their breeding season, and particularly between sunset and sunrise. Harvesting and hunting activity can also increase the movement of deer. PennDOT statistics show nearly half of all reportable crashes in the past five years involving deer occurred in the months of October and November, with nearly 77 percent taking place between 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. Last year, there were more than 3,000 crashes statewide involving deer, resulting in more than 600 injuries and

eight fatalities. To reduce the risk of a deer-related crash, motorists should slow down and be especially cautious during morning and evening hours. Motorists should also increase following distance between vehicles, especially where deer-crossing signs are posted. Deer often travel in herds, so if you see one deer crossing the road, there’s a strong chance that others will follow. To report a dead deer on state roads, motorists can call 1-800-FIX-ROAD.

Antler Restrictions FAQs

Hunters Can Share Their Harvest

As most regular deer-hunters know, the antler restriction for harvest was changed from points and inches to just points a few years back. But why did they change those restrictions? Here’s why, according to the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Why have three- and four-point areas? Different areas of Pennsylvania produce larger bucks at younger ages than others. Using antler point data collected from more than 71,000 bucks, we assigned three- and four-point restrictions to different areas based on antler characteristics. The objectives of these restrictions is to protect about half of the yearling bucks from harvest and make most adult bucks legal for harvest. (All of central PA is in three-points-to-a-side regulation area.) Throughout most of the state, a threepoints-to-a-side restriction satisfies the objectives of the new antler restriction. However, in western Pennsylvania, a threepoints-to-a-side-restriction would protect less than a third of all yearling bucks, whereas a four-points-to-a-side restriction protects more than half of all yearling bucks. A similar situation occurred in some southeastern counties of Pennsylvania, but a three-pointsto-a-side restriction was implemented in this area based on social concerns related to high human densities and deer-human conflicts. Why did we have to go with statewide regulations, instead of using antler restrictions on smaller pilot areas? We chose statewide regulations instead of pilot areas for three reasons. 1. First, we wanted to avoid designating local areas that hunters can avoid the first year because of limited opportunity to harvest a buck and then flood the second year when more adult bucks are available. Obviously, this scenario is less likely to happen when a regulation is applied to the entire state. 2. Second, we did not want to encourage leasing of hunting land in Pennsylvania.

Hunters who are successful in the upcoming deer hunting seasons are encouraged by the Pennsylvania Game Commission to consider participating in the state’s Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH) program, which channels donations of venison to local food banks, soup kitchens and needy families. Pennsylvania’s HSH program is recognized as one of the most successful among similar programs in about 40 states. “Using a network of local volunteer area coordinators and cooperating meat processors to process and distribute venison donated by hunters, HSH has really helped to make a difference for countless needy families and individuals in our state,” said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. “Pennsylvanians who participate in this extremely beneficial program should be proud of the role they play. HSH truly does make a tremendous difference.” Started in 1991, HSH has developed into a refined support service for organizations that assist the commonwealth’s needy. Each year, Hunters Sharing the Harvest helps to deliver almost 200,000 meals to food banks, churches and social services feeding programs for meals provided to needy Pennsylvanians. As part of the program, hunters are encouraged to take

Hunters lease land when they receive unique opportunities that are not available elsewhere. By implementing new antler restrictions statewide, no area is unique. Therefore, we expect leasing of hunting land to be less likely than if we designated local pilot areas that offered unique opportunities to harvest adult bucks. 3. Finally, from other research data, we know that if yearling bucks are not shot, they are likely to survive to become adults. So, success of antler restrictions comes down to social concerns and hunter behavior. Within a small pilot area it is likely that hunters would behave differently than they would if the restriction was applied statewide. For these reasons, we favored statewide antler restrictions. Why use antler points instead of antler spread? We used antler points instead of antler spread because points give us more flexibility in the application of antler restrictions. The typical spread restriction is limited to a single criterion that hunters can readily identify in the field. For example, ear tip width of about 14 to 15 inches. The usefulness of this criterion varies greatly across Pennsylvania. In most areas, it protects yearling bucks, but in some areas it also protects many adult bucks. By using points, we varied the regulation according to antler characteristics in different areas.

Turkey Harvest Expected to be Higher This Season

2011-12 Hunting Seasons and Bag Limits

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is expecting hunters to encounter a sizeable wild turkey population when they head afield for the fall turkey season. Season lengths vary in the state’s Wildlife Management Units for fall turkey hunting: For WMU 4D, below I-80 the seasons are Oct. 29 to Nov. 12, and Nov. 24 to 26; for WMU 2G, above I-80 – Oct. 29 to Nov. 18, and Nov. 24 to 26. Mary Jo Casalena, Game Commission wild turkey biologist, said the fall turkey population is excellent. Even though early spring weather was cool and wet, it moderated quickly enough for most hens to successfully hatch broods. Fall flock sizes are slightly smaller than average, but there are plenty of flocks afield. The challenge hunters face will be to locate the turkey’s food source due to the lack of a good acorn crop in many areas. Turkeys will seek out and concentrate in areas where food is available. Hunters who find these food sources also will find the flocks. The second year of an open season during the Thanksgiving holiday also should improve hunter opportunities. This Thanksgiving holiday season, which is November 24 to 26 in most of central PA, is designed to provide additional hunting opportunities for youth and families when schools and many businesses are closed and, hopefully, to reverse the declining trend in fall turkey hunters. “The statewide turkey population this past spring prior to nesting was similar to the 10-year average, about 340,000 birds, and a 25 percent increase from its low, in 2005, of 272,000, so there’s a bountiful population of turkeys in Penn’s Woods,� Casalena said. “Overall, I expect turkey hunters to enjoy higher success rates than last year when only 10 percent of fall turkey hunters harvested turkeys because of abundant mast crops, which dispersed flocks making them difficult to locate. Success this fall is expected to be much higher, at about 15 percent, similar to the previous five-year average,� Casalena said. Hunter success rates range from a high of 21 percent in 2001 and a low of 4 percent in 1979.

Last fall’s overall turkey harvest was below-average, 15,884 – 34 percent less than the previous five-year average of 24,049. Fall harvests have been declining steadily for the last nine years, mainly due to a decrease in fall turkey hunters and shorter Jake Dingel, PGC Photo season lengths. The preliminary spring 2011 harvest, calculated from hunter report cards, was about 41,000, 5 five percent below last year, but slightly higher than the previous five-year preliminary average of 40,000.� Even though spring harvests are down from the record 49,200 of 2001, spring harvests have been back above 40,000 bearded turkeys for the last four years, exceeding most other states in the nation. “Please remember to report any leg-banded and/or radiotransmittered turkeys harvested or found,� Casalena said. “Leg bands and transmitters are stamped with a toll-free number to call, and provide important information for a research project. These turkeys are legal to harvest and the information provided will help determine turkey survival and harvest rates.� Rewards for reporting marked turkeys are funded by donations from the National Wild Turkey Federation and a portion of the state’s share of a federal program.� Shot size is limited to No. 4 lead, bismuth-tin, tungsteniron or No. 2 steel. Turkey hunters also are required to tag their bird before moving it and to report their harvest within 10 days of taking a turkey. Legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

Bear Hunting Tips Now’s the time to scout!

More Chances to Bag that Bear

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials point out that one of the biggest mistakes bear hunters make is failing to locate areas with good fall food supplies – acorns, hickory nuts, beechnuts, apples, corn – before the hunting season and overlooking areas of dense cover where bears like to hide. “Signs to look for while scouting include droppings; bedding areas, which are scratched out depressions, usually at the base of a tree or log; and active trails with tracks,” said Mark Ternent, Game Commission black bear biologist. “In beech stands, look for fresh claw marks on tree trunks indicating that bears are feeding in the area, and in oak or hickory stands look for fresh droppings that are almost completely composed of nut bits. “Either of these signs suggests bears are feeding nearby and, if food conditions are right, they will likely still be there come hunting season. A good time to scout is early November, so you can assess local mast conditions.” Other bear hunting tips include: • Look for bears in the thickest cover you can find, such as: swamps and bogs, mountain laurel/rhododendron thickets, north-facing slopes, regenerating timberharvest areas, wind-blown areas with lots of downed trees, and remote sections of river bottoms. Bigger bears are notorious for holding in thick cover, even when hunters pass nearby. • Organized drives are effective. Hunters working together often increase their odds of taking bears, especially those bears holding out in thick cover. Develop plans to safely drive likely bear hideouts and follow them to the letter. A minor slip-up by a driver, flanker or stander is all a bear needs to elude even the bestplanned drive. Regulations limit the size of organized drives to 25 people or less.

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials said bear hunters will be able to enjoy a new four-day statewide bear season, in addition to a full-week of archery bear season and a return of extended bear seasons in certain Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) during the first week of the firearms deer season.  The statewide archery bear season, November 14 to 18, will lead up to the four-day statewide bear season, which will open on Saturday, Nov. 19, and then run from Monday through Wednesday, November 21 to 23. Centre County is split in two WMU’s – 4D which is below I-80, and 2G, which is above I-80. There is an extended bear season from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 in Centre County below I-80, and in parts of the portion north of the interstate. In our two central PA Wildlife Management Units, the 2010 bear harvest was 245 in 4D and 894 in 2G. Penns ylva nia’s bear population covers more than t hree-qua r ters of the state, and includes a number of world-class trophy bears,” said Mark Ternent, Game Commission bear biologist. “This has earned Pennsylvania recognition as one of

the top states for bear hunters. Every year, we have a number of bears exceeding 500 pounds included in the harvest.” Since 1992, six bears with an estimated live weight of 800 pounds or more have been legally taken in Pennsylvania. The possibility of another 800-pounder being taken by a hunter is always in play when Pennsylvania’s bear season opens. In 2010, hunters harvested 3,090 bears, which was the fifth highest harvest in Pennsylvania history. Over the past ten years, hunters have taken more black bears than in any other decade since the Game Commission began keeping bear harvest records in 1915. “Conditions this year are favorable for another record harvest,” Ternent said. “Bear populations are up in many parts of the state relative to past years, and hunter participation is expected to be good, based on the number of bear licenses being purchased. The only real unknown is if we will have favorable weather for hunters on opening day.” Bears were taken in 54 counties last year, which was the same as 2008 and 2009, but an increase from 2007, when bears were t a ken in 49 counties.

salt, chemicals, minerals, including residue or other foods are used, or have been used, as an enticement to lure wildlife within the past 30 days; use scents or lures; pursue bears with dogs; or to hunt bears in a party of more than 25 persons. • During the firearms bear season, hunters are required to wear at all times 250 square inches of fluorescent orange on their head, chest and back combined, visible 360 degrees.  In WMUs where the archery bear season and fall wild turkey season run concurrently, bowhunters, when moving, are required to wear a hat containing 100 square inches of solid fluorescent orange. The hat may be removed when the hunter is stationary or on stand. • Bears may be hunted with: manually operated center-fire rifles, handguns and shotguns with an all-lead bullet or ball, or a bullet designed to expand on impact - buckshot is illegal; muzzle-loading long guns 44-caliber or larger; long, recurve or compound bows or crossbows with broadheads of cutting-edge design. Crossbows must have a minimum draw weight of 125 pounds. Also, crossbows are legal for the archery bear season.  • It is unlawful to intentionally lay or place food, fruit, hay, grain, chemicals, salt or other minerals that may cause bears to congregate or habituate in an area.

RGE\H

• A bear license is required to participate in any bear season. • Only one bear may be harvested per license year from all seasons combined. • A hunter who harvests a bear must complete all information on his or her bear harvest tag and attach it to the ear of the animal immediately after harvest and before the carcass is moved. In addition, within 24 hours, hunters who kill a bear must take it, along with their general hunting and bear licenses, to a Game Commission check station for examination. Bear check stations are maintained at the agency’s six regional offices and at other locations listed on pages 37-38 in the 2011-12 Hunting and Trapping Digest. • Once a hunter has used his or her bear harvest tag, it is unlawful to possess it in the field. Also, hunters are reminded to remove old licenses from their holder before placing a new one in it. If you keep an old license in the holder, you may accidentally use it to tag big game and unintentionally violate the law. • It is unlawful to kill a bear in a den; use a radio to locate a bear that has a radio transmitter attached to it; hunt in areas where artificial or natural bait, hay, grain, fruit, nuts,

Hunting on-stand early and late in the day gives hunters a great chance to catch bears traveling to and from feeding and bedding areas. Hunt areas that provide cover to traveling bears and ensure there is either a good supply of mast, cornfields or cover near where you plan to hunt. Use the wind to your advantage. If a bear gets a whiff of you, you’re busted as a hunter. Bears have an outstanding sense of smell. They often let their noses guide the way as they travel. Always place yourself downwind of expected travel lanes when hunting on-stand or driving. Bears are cagey enough without giving them more advantages. Stay focused and assume nothing. Black bears blend in well in forest settings at dawn and as dusk approaches. Spend too much time looking one way and you can miss a bear. Even though bears are quite heavy, they often are surprisingly quiet moving through the forest. You may see a bear before you hear it coming. Staying alert and remaining vigilant are critical.

State Soccer Shoot at Park Smoke Forest Elementary Grabs Third Chase Victory

The winners or substitutes from the Elks North Central District Soccer Shoot will be competing in the State Soccer Shoot held November 19 starting at 9 a.m. at the Park Forest Elementary School. If you are in the area, please support the local entrants and cheer them on, hopefully to a state title, which would qualify them for regionals.

Mounties’ Watson Named Player of the Week The Centre County Gazette is proud to announce the Player of the Week for week nine as being the PhilipsburgOsceola Mounties’ Parker Watson. Watson collected a “hat trick” of sorts in the Mounties’ 47-14 win last week over Huntingdon. He scored three touchdowns but did so on offense, defense and then on special teams. His first touchdown came on a 39-yard pass which was followed by a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown. Watson capped his night with an 82-yard kickoff return for last score of the night. He had two receptions for 79 yards in the win. He joins teammates Kyle Lanich and Michael John as winners of the Player of the Week and the trio will be in running for the Player of the Year.

State College Falters in Second Half By Gazette Sports Department

State College won the battle of turnovers, but lost the war when it came to the final score, as they fell to Central Dauphin 26-17 Friday night in Harrisburg. The Little Lions played a phenomenal first half, leading 17-13 after two quarters of play. However, Central Dauphin came out and shut the Little Lions out in the second half, and despite the 165 yard rushing performance from Jack Haffner, the Little Lions saw their offense and defense alike struggle in the third and fourth quarters against the Rams. This week, State College will again travel to Harrisburg, as they take on Central Dauphin East. For the Little Lions, they will need a win as it appears that they will head into the District six playoffs. After starting the season 0-3, the Little Lions ripped off four in a row before faltering last week. Kickoff is at 7 PM in Harrisburg this Friday night.

Raiders Struggles Continue Heading into Curtin Bowl By Gazette Sports Department

Bellefonte took the opening kickoff and marched down the field. However, when they reached the red zone, their offense stalled and their most reliable offensive weapon, kicker Adam Johnson, would pull his field goal attempt wide left. After that, all of the wind that Bellefonte seamed to put in its sails came out, and Clearfield marched down the field for the game’s opening score. The Red Raider defense would hold its own throughout the first quarter, being down only 7-0 at the end of the quarter. The second quarter was a different story, as the Bison offense erupted for 21 points, as Clearfield would go on to shutout Bellefonte for the fourth time this season, 44-0. For Clearfield, it was the 1-2 punch of Beau Swales (17 carries-102 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Christian Lezzer (7 carries-118 yards, 3 touchdowns) that ultimately sunk the Red Raiders. Lezzer ran for two scores and caught a third from quarterback Curtis Frye. For Bellefonte, Jordan Fye led all rushers with 40 yards. He also tossed for 58 yards on 8 completions to Malik Breon, Billy Thompson, Jesse Hocker, Brandon Shuey and Tyler Haslet. Records go out the window for Bellefonte this week, as they travel to Wingate to take on the Bald Eagle Area Bald Eagles in a battle for the Curtin Bowl. Last season, Bellefonte regained the trophy after Bald Eagle had it on loan for the previous two seasons. For Bald Eagle, Cody Ripka leads all rushers with 760 yards and six touchdowns. Matt Dillon has also contributed 286 yards and one score. The Eagles are quarterbacked by Cole Long and Jeff Koleno. Kickoff is at 7 PM at Memorial Stadium in Wingate.

P-O Recap In sports you get to see what kind of character and fight your team has, especially after coming off a loss. Philipsburg-Osceola who fell to Tyrone in a district showdown the previous week, was taking on a Huntingdon team that had been peaking with two consecutive victories. On Friday, the Monties showed no ill effects of a loss, as they used big-play ability to hammer the Bearcats 47-14. P-O got on the scoreboard first with 3:33 in the first quarter, as fullback Cody Lee scored his first of three touchdowns on the night, plunging in from 1-yard out to give the Mounties an early 7-0 lead. The visitors were at it again early in the second quarter, when Michael John took a handoff off the left side, and used his jets to find a hole and race into the end zone for a 55-yard scoring play to give P-O a 14-0 advantage. One of the key sequences in the contest came late in the second quarter, as with under a minute remaining Huntingdon drove down the field and had a 4th-and 12 at the Mountie 27-yard line. Bearcat quarterback Alec Tressler completed a twelve yard pass which looked to be enough for a first down, but the officials disagreed, giving P-O the ball on downs. On the very next play, Lee took a simple handoff up the middle, ran behind his blockers and found an opening, scoring on an 85-yard touchdown to give the Mounties a twenty-one point cushion going into the locker room. It was more big plays for the Mounties in the second half, which turned into the Parker Watson show, as he scored three touchdowns in three different facets of the game. The senior wide receiver caught a 39-yard TD pass from quarterback Mike Marcinko, intercepted a Huntingdon pass and ran it in the end zone for 75-yards, and then to end the scoring, he returned a kick-off for an 82-yard touchdown. The victory ended an emotional week for P-O coach Jeff Vroman, and his team. Vroman’s father, Ned, passed away on Sunday night, and the team’s players and coaches wore “NV” decals on their helmets for the game. The Mounties improve to 7-2 on the season, and will end their regular season at home on Friday against Ligonier Vallery, who will come into the contest with a mark of 8-1. Both teams have already qualified for the upcoming playoffs, but with a win, P-O could secure the number two seed.

Nittany Lions Win Again; Remain Perfect in Big Ten

Steelers Take Down Pats

Call it ugly, call it boring, call it whatever you want. What you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call it, however, is a loss. Lots of opinions were offered following Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-7 win over Illinois last Saturday evening but at the end of the day, the Nittany Lions had the win and improved to 8-1 on the season. That is something that should not be lost in the conversation that for some labels Penn State as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worse eight win team in the nationâ&#x20AC;?. Penn State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light up the scoreboard on a day that featured a snowstorm that blanketed the area with several inches of snow thus creating its own â&#x20AC;&#x153;white-outâ&#x20AC;?. They did however pull it together in their last drive to score what would stand as the winning touchdown. In doing so, the team won a game that, based on the flood of fans that were leaving the stadium before the Nittany Lions even got the ball back for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Drive IIâ&#x20AC;? as it was immediately dubbed following the game. Winning a game in the manner they did on Saturday may be measured by a simple win and be written off as a boring game but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win that could prove to be so much bigger as teams grow closer in adversity and become a better team for it. How the team plays their next time out remains to be seen but following their bye week, the Nittany Lions, the only team without a conference loss in the Big Ten, will run a gauntlet that will ultimately decide if they maintain their lead in the Leaders Division and play in the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game the first weekend of December. Illinois (6-3, 2-3 Big Ten) may feel the same disrespect that the Nittany Lions are feeling as they were written off as having a hollow six wins. That came from their losing straight games coming into their game last Saturday, both coming to Big Ten opponents, Ohio State and Purdue. They still brought a potent offense into Beaver Stadium which featured dual-threat quarterback Nate Scheelhaase. The Illini averaged 218 yards passing and just shy of 200 yards rushing per game (199.2 yards). They

All the talk about Tom Brady owning the Steelers can be put to rest for the time being, as the Steelers confused the Patriot signal caller all day long in Pittsburgh, as the Steelers took down the Patriots 25-17. The Steelers again lost two players to injuries, so the celebration was short lived, and that is just how Coach Mike Tomlin would like it. Tomlin is a no nonsense coach who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in the past but thrives on how to get better in the future. The Steelers lost sack-master LaMaarr Woodley to a hamstring strain after posting two more sacks to give him nine on the season, and Ike Taylor briefly to what was called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;stingerâ&#x20AC;?. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status this week going forward is uncertain. Woodleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a little more complicated; as reports have surfaced that he will be out a couple of weeks. If you listen to him, he is telling anyone who wants to listen to â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count me out yetâ&#x20AC;?. The Steelers struck first, when Ben Roethlisberger (36-50 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 365 yards & two touchdowns) found Mewelde Moore from five yards out. Shaun Suisham would drill his PAT, giving the Steelers a 7-0 lead. In the second quarter, Suisham would strike again, this time from 33 yards out to extend the lead to ten. Brady and company would finally get on track when he hit Deion Branch from two yards out to cut the deficit to three. With Big Ben going back to work, he marched the Steelers down the field and found second year receiver Antonio Brown from seven yards out, pushing the lead again to ten. Stephen Gostkowski would hit a 46-yard field goal before the half ended to make the score 17-10. In the third quarter, Suisham hit again from 21 yards out, and in the fourth he hit from 23 yards out. Late in the fourth quarter, the Patriots got into the red zone and threatened to score. With the Steeler defense tightening up, they forced the Pats into several mistakes inside the five yard line, before eventually scoring on a Brady to Aaron Hernandez pass. The Steelers would give the ball back to the Pats with little time remaining, but Brett Keisel would sack Brady and cause a fumble, which Troy Polamalu smartly punched 20 yards through the end zone, giving the Steelers a safety with under ten seconds remaining. This week, the Steelers face a team they know all too well, the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night football.

By Les Barnhart

averaged 28.6 points as well prior to playing in the weather filled game last weekend. Credit should be given to the Penn State defense for the job they did to hold Illinois to just 7 points (and one HUGE missed field goal). Offensively, the Nittany Lions got very little production from either of their quarterbacks, Matt McGloin or Rob Bolden. McGloin got the start for the second week in a row, but Coach Paterno stated this week that Bolden, who was soundly booed seeming every time he stepped on the field, would still be in the mix and the rotation would continue against Nebraska in two weeks. The offensive line continued to improve as they paved the way for Silas Reddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth straight 100 yard game. He is the first back since Curtis Enis to accomplish that feat. It came against an Illinois defense that was limiting opposing runners to 2.7 yards per carry. Redd accounted for the game winning touchdown with a short run and ran strong all game with a majority of the runs attacking Illinois outside the tackles. Penn State gets a much needed week off before taking on three of their toughest opponents to close out the regular season. They will get Nebraska in the friendly confines of Beaver Stadium. The Huskers roughed up Michigan State last weekend and will certainly be the biggest test the Nittany Lions have faced since Alabama back in week two. Nebraskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaunted â&#x20AC;&#x153;black shirtâ&#x20AC;? defense and the Nittany Lions formidable defense should make this a low scoring affair as well. Would a cold and snow filled, 10-7 win with a missed field goal by Nebraska at gamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end be considered boring? No, it would be considered an instant classic and Penn State would be suddenly in the conversation for BCS and National title consideration. The point is, the Nittany Lions may not be winning â&#x20AC;&#x153;prettyâ&#x20AC;? but they are still winning and not like Charlie Sheen is â&#x20AC;&#x153;winningâ&#x20AC;? either.

Eagles Shut Down Cowboys Eagles get Bears on MNF By Matt Masullo

By Matt Masullo

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan likes to talk, and the Eagles apparently like to walk. Ryan, the brash talking brother of New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan goes t o the media more than a Public Relations guy does, telling people how his defense is going to do this and that. He suggested that his defense would beat the â&#x20AC;&#x153;all-hypeâ&#x20AC;? team. His statement couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been further from the truth, as the Eagles stomped the Cowboys, 34-7 on Sunday Night Football. The Cowboys didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score until late in the fourth quarter, and the Eagles found themselves in the end zone frequently, with Jeremy Maclin, Brett Celek and LeSean McCoy finding paydirt. McCoy was there twice, as he continues to dominate on a weekly basis. The Eagles defense, which has been under fire all season long, stifled Tony Romo all evening long. Romo struggled in the first half, completing only four passes. For the game, he was 18-35 for 203 yards with one touchdown and one interception. This week, the Eagles will play the Chicago Bears at home on Monday Night Football, giving them back-to-back prime time games.

The Philadelphia Eagles are fresh off of a dominating victory that may have turned their season around last Sunday, defeating their rival Dallas Cowboys 34-7. This week, the Eagles will host Brian Urlacher and the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. The Bears are 4-3 in third place behind the defending champion Green Bay Packers and the young gunning Detroit Lions. The Eagles are knotted in a three way tie for either second place or last place in the NFC East, however you prefer to look at their situation. Coming off of what could have been a make or break game for the birds, Eagles fans have to be cautiously optimistic about their defensive performance. The Cowboys feature an offense ripe with talent, and the Eagles held them scoreless for the first 36 minutes of the game. Offensively, they continue to click behind the likes of Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin. The Bears have one of the most underrated players in the NFL in Matt Forte. Forte is 6th in the league in rushing yards with 676. He has also added 419 yards receiving on 38 receptions. Needless to say, the Bears offense runs through Forte. They also have the human piĂąata in Jay Cutler, who gets sacked more than any quarterback in football. Defensively, All-Pro linebacker Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs lead a defense that surprisingly ranks in the bottom third of the league in total defense. Kickoff is slated for 8:30 Monday night with coverage on ESPN. 17th Annual

If you like high scoring affairs, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tune into NBC Sunday night from 8:20 until around 11:30, as the number one rated defense and the number five rate defense will tangle as the Baltimore Ravens travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. Both teams traditionally rank near the top of the league in total defense and when they meet, the games usually turn into slugfests, with blow after blow being delivered by each defense. The Ravens have the third ranked rush defense in football and the second ranked pass defense. They will need their defense to carry them, as their offense ranks in the middle of the pack. Ray Lewis is the headliner on defense, with fellow Miami Hurricane Ed Reed still roaming the defensive backfield. The Ravens have gotten younger and faster on offense, but their play as of late has been sketchy at best, with the awful offensive performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars two weeks ago. The Steelers seem to lose someone each week to injury, with LaMarr Woodley being the latest casualty. His status for Sunday is vague, as Mike Tomlin isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saying one way or the other if he will play. The Steelers will also be without James Harrison and possibly James Farrior, making their linebacking corps just as thin, if not thinner than their offensive line depth. Fortunately for the black and gold, Ben Roethlisberger and company have been lighting up the score board as of late. Big Ben is playing lights out football right now, with two consecutive 300 yard passing games. In those two games, Ben has tossed five touchdowns versus only one interception. In their first matchup of the season, the Ravens embarrassed the Steelers, stinging them with a 35-7 defeat in Baltimore. However, the Steelers have only lost one game since then, a 17-10 defeat at the hands of the Houston Texans. Their offense is clicking right now, without much of a running game. Kickoff is slated for 8:20 on NBC.

Former Spikes Motte, Bald Eagle Wrestler 4th Craig Lead Cardinals to at Super 32 National World Title Tournament Duo Were Teammates on Spikes Inaugural 2006 Team By Tim Rogers

STATE COLLEGE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The iconic final out of the St. Louis Cardinals seven-game World Series victory over the Texas Rangers starred a pair of players who began their championship journeys with the State College Spikes at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Pitcher Jason Motte and outfielder Allen Craig, who teamed up to record the final out of the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 6-2 win in Game 7 of the Fall Classic, were teammates on the inaugural 2006 Spikes squad, which was affiliated with St. Louis. Motte was in his fourth pro season in the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; system back in 2006, but was in his first as a pitcher after switching from catcher earlier that spring. The right-hander quickly made the decision to convert from catcher to pitcher a smart one, as he posted a 3.08 ERA with eight saves and 25 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings over 21 appearances. Craig, an eighth round pick of the Cardinals in the 2006 MLB Draft, made his professional debut with the Spikes that summer, hitting .257 with 13 doubles, four home runs and 29 RBI in 48 games. The Cal-Berkley product represented the Spikes in the 2006 New York-Penn League All-Star Game in Aberdeen, MD. Beyond teaming up for the final out of the World Series, Motte and Craig played starring roles throughout the whole series and the entire post-season. Motte was on the mound for final out of three of the Cardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; four World Series victories, and made five relief appearances overall in the series. He was dominate in the first two playoff rounds against Philadelphia and Milwaukee, allowing just one hit over eight scoreless frames with four saves. Craig, on the other hand, saved his best post-season performance for the Fall Classic. He homered three times throughout the series, including longballs in both Game 6 and 7, and recorded a game-winning, pinch-hit RBI single in Game 1. He also pulled back a would-be home run off the bat of Nelson Cruz during the Game 7 victory. Motte and Craig are two of eight members of the inaugural 2006 Spikes squad to have reached the major leagues, joining Brendan Ryan, Luke Gregerson, P.J. Walters, Mark Hamilton, Adam Ottavino and David Carpenter.

Junior Jacob Taylor of Bald Eagle High School earned a 4th place finish at the Super 32 tournament last weekend in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Super 32 features one of the strongest lineups of high school wrestlers from across the country. In 2010 the Super 32 featured wrestlers that won a combined 200 state championships and five of the ten NCAA champions last year were former Super 32 participants. Taylor entered the 170# bracket containing 65 wrestlers from 19 states and ranging in age from freshman to seniors. Taylor earned a first round bye before defeating wrestlers from Maryland, Florida, and Virginia to earn a spot in the quarterfinals where he lost to fellow Pennsylvanian Elliott Riddick 7-4 to move into the third place match. In the third place match, Ohio senior Vince Pickett used dominating leg rides to control the match and earn a hard fought victory giving Taylor the 4th place medal. Riddick lost the championship bout to Michigan wrestler Taylor Massa 16-6. Jared Beckwith, a sophomore from Tyrone competed in the 182# bracket and earned a victory before being eliminated. Ty Walter of Mifflinburg finished 7th in the 160# weight division.

St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wraps Cross Country Season at Districts St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Academy competed in the District VI Cross Country Championship on Monday, October 31. The race was originally scheduled for Saturday, October 29, but was postponed because of inclement weather. Page Barnett built upon on breakthrough performance at the TriState Invitational and again lead the way for the St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls team as she finished in 27:15 for 118th. Tatyanna Gonzalez ran 30:55 to finish in 138th. Angel Piccirillo of Homer Center (18:51) and Central Cambria repeated as district champions. Stephen Forstmeier was the top boys finisher, crossing the line in 18:27 which was good enough for 24th, his first top 25 finish of the season. Mike Bleggi completed a strong season by cracking the top 40 to finish in 18:59 and grab 38th place. Ryan Brown of Penns Valley won the race in 17:05 and Bishop McCort captured the team title.

A few weeks ago I sent in an email in response to the death of IZOD Indy Car Driver Dan Wheldon. Now, that a few weeks have went by, you see the NASCAR drivers and teams returning to racing as usual. Dario Franchitti was back last week testing an Indy Driver Rob Mellott in a fiery Car, in fact the new Dallara, accident (Photo by Chris named the DW12, after Wechtenheiser) Wheldon. In racing, things move on, not that anyone that has lost their life is forgotten, but, they are remembered for their passion and contributions to the sport. The Dallara is to be a safer Indy Car for all of the drivers, and Dan Wheldon did a lot of the testing on it to get it right. Going forward, drivers will have him to thank for the new safety products and procedures, just like the racing world did when Dale Earnhardt was killed in 2001 at the Daytona 500. Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wreck made us all look at the safety of our cars and equipment. For that reason, our team had a new custom built head support seat put into the Sprint Car I drove. I also wore more fire equipment than I ever had before. One night, while running 3rd at Bedford in my heat race, I got to test all of those new items we had in the car. The motor let go, and it exploded into flames. Not only was I unhurt, I was able to find the fire truck to park it beside to put the rest of the fire out. Knowing that could happen again, I buried that deep down, and went out the next week and won the feature at Hesston. Again, things happen for a reason and a true racer will always continue to push the limits of the car, the equipment, and their ability. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an easy sport by any means.

It Started with a Viennese All-Girl Orchestra By Pat Park

Stage & Screen

Local author, Mary Rohrer-Dann, has written a series of poems based on the true story of an all girl orchestra in Baroque Vienna. Cynthia Mazzant, artistic director of Tempest Studios, has transformed these stories into a play, La Scafetta: The Founding Drawer, about a young violinist and her jealous music teacher. The original orchestra had consisted of

orphans who lived in a cloistered environment and were so well known that much of their music was composed by Vivaldi. Here is an opportunity to see a show that highlights the talents of author, Mary RohrerDann, director, Cynthia Mazzant, and a cast of actresses, many who will be familiar to you from our community theatres. The young ladies are portrayed by State High students. If you are a supporter of our local theatre scene, the play will be presented again this evening, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the University Club.
