Artist Paints Over Paterno Halo

An artist removed the halo on a mural of late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno at State College after a report came out Friday that alleged Paterno and others in the university’s administration knew about reports of child abuse by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Michael Pilato had put a halo over Paterno’s image after Paterno’s death, but Pilato said Saturday that he felt he had to remove it. Pilato also removed Sandusky from the mural last year, but said he hasn’t decided yet what to do about former university president Graham Spanier.
