JOE PATERNO'S name continues to lose its luster.
On Tuesday, an airplane flew over State College for about 3 hours with a banner reading, "Take the Statue Down or We Will," in reference to the Paterno statue outside Beaver Stadium. Photos of the banner quickly surfaced on Twitter.
School officials Sunday issued a statement saying that no decision had been made, denying a report that the Board of Trustees had voted to keep the statue standing. A school spokesman said Tuesday a decision will be made within 7 to 10 days.
The plane is registered to Air America Aerial Ads, based in Ohio, and was flown by company owner Jim Miller.
