Before his death, he had publicly come out and said he wishes he would have done more. He was obviously devastated by the backlash Penn State received due to the allegations against Jerry Sandusky. After being fired from Penn Stat over the scandal, many believe he lost one of the most important things in his life. Could this be the biggest example of someone dying from a broken heart? Or is this being over thought by an increasingly over dramatic U.S.?

<![CDATA[The 36th Delegation: ineffective leadership or justifiable anger?]]>Tue, 17 Jan 2012 12:42:24 GMThttp://wctr.com/2/post/2012/01/the-36th-delegation-ineffective-leadership-or-justifiable-anger.htmlAt a recent Kent County Commissioners meeting, an eyewitness mentioned that State Senate President Miller told Senator Pipkin that when the 36th District delegation voted against an increase in the alcohol tax, the leadership in Annapolis was given the impression that the revenue wasn't needed in the 36th and therefore much of the region's share was distributed elsewhere. Were the votes against the tax by the 36th delegation justified because of its potential harm on the Eastern Shore? Should the 36th delegation go along with the majority in order to get the funding? Is the practice of withholding funding to the 36th due to the opposition of the tax a sign that partisan politics trumps acting for the good of all Maryland citizens?  ]]><![CDATA[The Chestertown Riverfront]]>Thu, 05 Jan 2012 18:23:27 GMThttp://wctr.com/2/post/2012/01/the-chestertown-riverfront.html2012 looks to be an important year for Chestertown now that the marina purchase is moving ahead and Washington College's ownership of the Armory is complete. We look for the riverfront to be the economic hub that has the potential to benefit the downtown. We see the Sultana as one of the biggest riverfront draws. What do you see as the town's biggest draw and/or what would you like to see that the town doesn't have?
