Centre County greatest love stories: It started with a wink

Editor’s note: Recently, the Centre Daily Times set out to find Centre County’s greatest love story. We called for submissions and nominations, asking anyone with a love story to tell — their own or someone else’s — to share the love tales with us. For CDT staff, selecting a winner was more difficult than we’d expected. We had an entry about the unbreakable bond between parent and child, a heartwarming tale of love that blossomed at a soccer game and inspiring stories of long-lasting relationships where the partners still call each other “Valentine.” In a contest sponsored by Pizza Mia and with the grand prize of a $100 gift card to the restaurant, we selected Jim and Evelyn Wagner as the winners, but one thing is clear: There’s plenty of love in Centre County.
