Daily Debriefing

(11/05/12 4:00am)

Former Pennsylvania State University President Graham Spanier was charged with covering up allegations of child abuse against Penn State's former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. Prosecutors accused Spanier and two other university officials of perjury, obstructing justice, failing to report a crime and endangering children, calling their actions a "conspiracy of silence." Spanier denied knowledge of Sandusky's abuse of children in university shower rooms, saying that he thought Sandusky was only "horseplaying around." Evidence suggests, however, that Spanier knew what was happening, The Chronicle reported.

Now Playing in Hanover: Frankenweenie

(11/05/12 4:00am)

The 3-D, black-and-white stop-motion film "Frankenweenie" (2012), directed and produced by Tim Burton, follows the basic plotline of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" but adds that unmistakable stop-motion comedy-horror family vibe that made Burton famous. Young Victor Frankenstein's (Charlie Tahan) attempts at going from nerd-chic to jock-cool backfire when his first baseball game leads to the death of his dog Sparky. Victor manages to reanimate the dog, but his classmates soon figure out his formula and begin to bring back to life pets of their own that unleash chaos upon the town fair. "Frankenweenie" features additional voice acting from Martin Short, Martin Landau and Winona Ryder, and it explores the power of a boy's love for man's best friend. Luke Katler

What to Watch For

(11/05/12 4:00am)

Vince Marriott: Once again, basketball season is upon us. While I'm not usually a huge fan of the sport at a professional level, the recent resurgence of the Philadelphia 76ers has me excited for what could happen this year. It hasn't been a great start so far, however, as my team currently sits at 1-1 with the lowest scoring average in the entire NBA. Even so, I'll be keeping a close eye on this squad as it looks to win its first championship since 1983. The beauty of the NBA season is that there are always good games to watch, but I'll definitely be watching when the Sixers take on the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday on national television.
