Penn State's president is methodically seeking input from trustees, alumni and other constituencies about the fate of the Joe Paterno statue outside the football stadium.

Even though the school has stated that no long-term decision has been made related to the future of the statue of disgraced and recently deceased former Penn State football coach that is prominently displayed outside Beaver Stadium, the statue of Joe Paterno remains standing. But the fact that there is a plane reportedly circling above [...]
