The winter storm held down the size of the audience. Perhaps many felt Paterno would be a â€śno-showâ€ť because of the weather.
But missing a scheduled public forum is not in Paternoâ€™s DNA.
He said his late fatherâ€”legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paternoâ€”wouldnâ€™t excuse him if he ever missed such a public event.

A 1994 graduate of Kane High School, Wright served as the school district athletic trainer for 12 1/2 years between 1998 and 2010.Â
