Calm before the storm

It's like the calm before the storm in Happy Valley, waiting for Penn State students to return and for the town to come alive.

We're also eagerly waiting for the Grange Fair to start, and I thank this job for introducing me to the fair after all of those years.

Yeah, it's not on the calendar of Penn Staters in any big way, but it's a jewel of Centre County's year and I look forward to activities in Centre Hall.

I hope the students go out too, and perhaps they'll get introduced to it by our coverage in the paper and online.
