A central Pennsylvania man says he paid for a billboard on a rural highway praising Joe Paterno because he wanted to shine a light on the late Penn State football coach's accomplishments.
Larry Peters told PennLive.com on Monday that he sponsored the billboard near Thompsontown in Juniata County – which is about 50 miles from the university. The two-panel billboard touts Paterno's 409 career victories beneath a blue sign with lettering that reads "You can't cover up 61 years of success with honor."
The 79-year-old Hummelstown native says “he’s proud of the billboard and wasn’t trying to alienate anyone.” A group called Penn Staters For Responsible Stewardship designed similar billboards that were placed across the state last fall, but said it wasn't behind the latest one.
Peters said the billboard will cost him $400 a month through the end of the 2013 football season.
