Happy Days return to Happy Valley!

Jake Corman, State Senator from Centre County who, along with State Treasurer Rob McCord had filed a suit against the NCAA seeking disclosure of the NCAA's reasons and authority for the actions it levied against Penn State, Joe Paterno, and the past and present students and student-atheletes.

After trying a bluff that failed, the NCAA finally caved in and repealed all of its actions done to punish so many innocent people in the wake of the Sandusky crimes.

All 111 wins will be restored to the University and to Coach Joe Paterno, no other sanctions exist since the NCAA had already restored cuts to scholarships and bowl games for the Nittany Lions.

The $60 million fine will stay in Pennsylvania to be used to combat child sexual abuse.

All in all, justice is finally served, where the acts of one person were used by the NCAA to punish so many who had no connection to or knowledge of the actions of Jerry Sandusky.

One final step remains:  PUT THE STATUE BACK UP IMMEDIATELY!

Cushing to get Medal of Honor

Courtesy of Three Days  at Gettysburg Blog:

Lt. Alonzo Cushing of Delafield, Wisconsin, commander of Battery A, 4th US Artillery, will receive a long overdue Medal of Honor in a September ceremony at the White House.

Cushing's heroic stand at the Gettysburg 'High Water Mark' during Pickett's Charge is the stuff of legends.  Cushing, wounded several times, remained at his guns, assisting the loading of them and was killed with a final wound while ordering the gun to fire.

A new way to view the Battlefield

Gone is the Wax Museum, and in its place is the Gettysburg Heritage Center on Steinwehr Avenue.

And with the change comes a new way to see the Battlefield, or at least a large portion of it, with an eight-minute tethered balloon ride.  Below are two views of the balloon awaiting its first flight of the day today.
