Penn State alum to perform July 16 at Community Arts Center

Pennsylvania native Eric Ian Farmer, who returned to his Centre County roots three decades later to earn a doctoral degree in educational leadership from Penn State, will bring his homegrown musical talent to the Community Arts Center stage at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 16.

“Along this journey, I have learned to embrace live music’s uncertainty whereby the music comes out and moves through a space doing whatever it intends: Maybe it bears witness, potentially it disturbs, hopefully it heals,” Farmer said. “Right now, I want it to encourage. “

Bridging the twin passions of education and song, his travels have brought him full-circle.

First day of summer, last word in elegance

Arrival of the solstice shortly after 11:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday may have some folks singing, “Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer,” but it hasn’t remotely been an inactive time for General Services employees (or for anyone else working toward the start of the Fall 2021 semester)!

“Big” little brother Christopher (center) leads an impromptu dance party on the set of “PA live!

Author Megan E. Rogers, a Penn College employee, and sons Mason and Christopher were featured in a segment of WBRE’s “PA live!” on Monday afternoon. Co-hosts Haley Bianco and Christopher Bohinski interviewed the family about “Meet Mason,” a newly published and beautifully illustrated book designed to boost readers’ understanding of special needs and to help them discern the too-often-unseen similarities alongside those differences. “Even without vision, there’s still vision,” Megan said. “One of the things that Mason has taught me is to see things in a different way, without my eyes. To be able to see with my heart; something as simple as the sun shining on your face. When I see him smile, you appreciate that on a whole ‘nother level.” The book is available from Amazon in paperback ($15) and at a pair of local book-signings in the coming weeks: The Otto Bookstore on June 26 and at North Central Sight Services on July 18.

Weathering the storm

Clouds over the CC Pennsylvania’s transition from spring to summer can bring some unpredictable conditions: steamy days, cool nights and a seemingly ever-present threat of showers. Penn College Police Officer Daniel A. Kilgus took this engaging panoramic photo of the sky over the Bush Campus Center, just before Friday morning’s rain moved in. Eerie and menacing, perhaps, but with the silver-lining promise of another day.
