Start ’em early: Here’s a cool story from yesterday’s Morning Call on the rise of “mini-thons” at high schools all over Pennsylvania — 136 this year alone. And just like the larger THON, the events are raising big money for the Four Diamonds Fund: The Bethlehem Area School District raised more than $20,000 at the eight-hour dance marathon last Saturday.

Speaking out: Dottie Sandusky will appear tomorrow morning on NBC’s Today in what looks to be an emotional interview with Matt Lauer. In a promo released this morning, Jerry Sandusky’s wife tells Lauer that her husband, who has been in maximum security prison since June 2012, misses “family meals” and “time with grandkids.”

Dynamic duo: A couple of big honors for men’s basketball player D.J. Newbill and Tim Frazier; they’re two of the 2014 All-Big Ten award winners, announced yesterday. Newbill, who’s ranked second in the Big Ten, earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors; Frazier, ranked ninth in the Big Ten, received third-team recognition.

Franklin moves in: Sunday’s Pittsburgh Tribune featured this story on James Franklin, who talks about the move from Nashville to State College—and his childhood, which included lots of time with his extended family in the ‘Burgh. Here’s  a fun fact: According to Franklin’s cousin Karen Zellars, who’s quoted in the piece, little James could make one killer apple pie.
