Thumbs Up: To Penn State and community leaders who visited student-heavy neighborhoods during the Living In One Neighborhood Walk on Monday. The effort bridges the gap between town and gown, and encourages students and residents to be good neighbors.
Thumbs Down: To municipal leaders who may be leaning toward not supporting Bellefonte’s Kepler Pool. The pool, saddled with a broken pump, already won’t open next year. If unfunded, it could be closed permanently, which would leave hundreds of kids without a pool.
Thumbs Up: To the Snow Shoe Fire Company, which is holding this year’s third mud race Sunday. The event, which will help purchase much-needed equipment, begins at 12:30 p.m. at the township’s dirt track. The first two races this year garnered $10,000 for new gear.
