STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Hundreds of candles created a dull glow at the base of the mural that contained a likeness of Joe Paterno, each flame flickering to commemorate the year since the death of Penn State's Hall of Fame coach.
Time hasn't erased the pain of supporters who feel Paterno's reputation has been unfairly sullied in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
The Hall of Fame coach died of lung cancer Jan. 22, 2012, at age 85. His death came about two months after he was fired following Sandusky's arrest.
At least 150 supporters attended the candlelight vigil Tuesday, braving frigid conditions to pay tribute at the downtown mural about a block away from the Penn State campus.
Paterno's family said they had no plans to attend public gatherings.
