Centre County Commissioners are considering selling Centre Crest Nursing Home, but keeping the prison which loses more money.

I write today because I am very concerned that our Centre County Commissioners are considering selling Centre Crest.
Commissioners have stated that they cannot continue to lose 1.5 Million a year to keep Centre Crest in operation.
1.5 million spread over all the tax payers in Centre County is approximate $25 per tax payer.
Consider that we are losing almost 6 million a year running the prison!
What would you rather your tax money be used for > running prisons - or to care for our sickest in need

Response to the Paterno Report, from local youth and victims support non-profits

Response to Recommendations contained in the Paterno Report


As representatives of organizations working with victims of child sexual abuse and engaged in prevention efforts for many years in Centre County, we were pleased with the support of such programs in the recently released Paterno family response to the Freeh report. We are concerned, however, with the impression created by Mr. Clemente that a new national organization is needed to address the needs of victims of child sexual abuse and create new prevention programs. We realize that child sexual abuse is an issue that few people think about until they are impacted by a crisis, and thus knowledge of existing resources may be limited. It is important, however, that the community know how we have responded and what work is being done to meet the needs of victims and to prevent child sexual abuse.

Within weeks after Jerry Sandusky’s arrest, representatives from the Centre County Women’s Resource Center (CCWRC), the Centre County Youth Services Bureau (YSB), the YMCA of Centre County and the Centre County United Way met to discuss what the community needed and how we might provide it.
