Our View | Thumbs for Wednesday

Thumbs up: To University Park Airport and Delta Air Lines for landing a weekly direct flight to Atlanta this summer, opening another option for travelers to and from Centre County. Airport officials are “thrilled” with the addition, according to a news release.

Thumbs down: To yet another house fire in Philipsburg. Fortunately — once again — no one was injured, but there was extensive damage. Homeowner Timothy Price seemed to take it in stride, though, saying, “What are you going to do? You start over.”

Thumbs up: To organizers and supporters of the 2014 Pink Zone event during halftime of Sunday’s Lady Lions basketball game. In its eight-year history at Penn State, the local event has raised more than $1 million for cancer research, prevention and patient organizations.
