To the Editor: Reader says to leave Paterno's legacy intact

I did not know Joe Paterno personally, but I have seen him on TV on various occasions over the years and he has always seemed to me to be a gentleman from an earlier, more innocent, time.
When Paterno was appraised of the child abuse being perpetrated by Sandusky, I feel certain that he did not know quite what to do - so he reported the matter to his superiors, thinking that they would know what to do.  It's what would happen in the military: one reports up the chain of command. When the sad events did come to light, those same "superiors" then appear to have sold Paterno down the river in what seems to be an obvious attempt to save themselves.
So I say, leave Paterno's legacy intact. Paterno may have been naive, but I don't believe he is a criminal.
I can not say the same about his "superiors" at Penn State, for whom I have nothing but contempt.

To the Editor: Messaros a great asset to Elmwood

I would like write to the Elmwood Schools, Staff, Coaches, Athletes, and Community Members. We at Elmwood are very lucky to have trainer Mike Messaros. Mike has been a great asset to the Athletic Program at Elmwood High School. Sometimes dedication of individuals get overlooked and we would like to make sure Mike isn't one of them. Mike has put complete dedication into his job and sometimes things happen to remind us of them. We recently had a injury on the court that turned most spectators heads, it only look Mike seconds to respond, help the Athlete, and relieve his pain, and have him back on the court in only a few minutes playing again to full capacity. The quote from the athlete was "Thank God it happened on our home court, couldn't imagine how long I would have had that pain if Mike wasn't there."
