Our View | Thumbs up, down

Thumbs up: To Thon and its many organizers and participants. But especially to the children. We hope they have the time of their lives this weekend as they participate in the annual dance marathon that has raised millions of dollars to support pediatric cancer programs. FTK!

Thumbs down: To Ryan Reichlin and Aaron Klinger, who have been charged in connection with 24 burglaries from November to January. State College police have said many of the apartments targeted were those of Penn State students away for winter break.

Thumbs up: To students at Philipsburg-Osceola Area Middle School, who gave more than $650 to support the Rowland Theatre’s digital conversion through a penny collection and donations that would have gone to a holiday gift exchange in December.
