Paternoville Name Change is Unconstitutional

This week, the officers of the PCC decided that they knew what was best for the organization, and that they didn't need to follow the proper protocol to get what they wanted; they would do things their own way. Sound familiar? The officers called a meeting amongst themselves with no notice given to members, and unilaterally made the decision to change the group's name.

State College PD Collects Unused Pills

Rush Limbaugh isn't the only one who wants your unused pills. On Saturday, the State College Police Department held an event that offered residents of State College a chance to safely dispose of their unused prescription pills. Residents were able to hand over their pills anonymously at a box in the police department.

This event was part of a nation-wide effort that took place this weekend, coordinated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
