He'd rather not have all of the attention, but Senior Trial Court Judge John M. Cleland of Kane is in the national limelight today.
He's the presiding judge for the upcoming sexual abuse trial of Jerry Sandusky, a former long-time Penn State assistant football coach.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin June 5 in the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.
Barring any â€śbombshellâ€ť developments, Cleland will return home three days later to deliver the commencement address Friday, June 8 at the Kane High School auditorium.
RIDGWAY - Members of the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission [NCPRPDC] are keeping a sharp eye on federal and state spending plans as lawmakers continue to make budget adjustments.
