STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Almost every time Penn State leaders try to move forward, some event or milestone invariably renews focus on its recent, painful past.
A year after retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's arrest on child sex abuse charges, the fallout from the sweeping scandal promises to linger for months, if not years, to come. New charges that former university president Graham Spanier conspired to conceal allegations provided the latest agonizing reminder.
Many alumni, residents and students are weary about the seemingly endless trickle of developments rooted back to Sandusky's arrest on Nov. 5, 2011. Yet much has changed since then, too.
University leaders say they're focused on moving forward. Some vocal alumni remain steadfast about their distrust of the school's actions and want a change in leadership.
