In this first of an occasional series, columnist Les Picker will follow the development of a newly formed Maryland foundation through its formative stages.It is a rare achievement, indeed, when we can create meaning and lasting benefit for others from a wrenching tragedy.Joe Sandusky was a promising athlete, on a football scholarship at the University of Tulsa. After a routine practice, the sophomore called home and spoke to his father and kid brother, making only passing mention of a minor infected shoulder, one of the constant scrapes and bruises that are part and parcel of the gridiron.

Ever want to shoot hoops with Terps basketball coach Gary Williams? How 'bout lobbing a few with tennis champ Pam Shriver? Maybe shoot pool with the Ravens' Tony Banks, or the Orioles' Brady Anderson? The Mid-Summer Fest "SportsORama" was a chance to party and play various games with sports celebs and raise money for the Joe Sandusky Fund of the Baltimore Community Foundation and the CollegeBound Foundation. The partygoers browsed a bountiful buffet from Baltimore restaurants and danced to the music of O'Malley's March, starring none other than Charm City's hip (in black T-shirt)

It is horrifying to open a newspaper and see Jerry Sandusky again ("Sandusky: Paterno wouldn't allow pedophile," March 26). Just when you thought the Penn State sexual abuse scandal was over, Mr. Sandusky is giving interviews to a crazed documentary filmmaker, John Ziegler. To know that Mr. Ziegler is getting coverage for the nonsense he is pursuing - namely, that Joe Paterno did not know Mr. Sandusky was a pedophile - is just one more indignity to be endured by sexual abuse victims everywhere.

It was sad to note that even though Jerry Sandusky's boss, Joe Paterno, had heard at least one report that his subordinate was sexually abusing young boys, he never told police. Apparently he hoped the problem would just disappear. Messrs. Sandusky and Paterno, along with the president of the university, were all fired when the story came out. But despite the actions taken by the school's board of trustees, there is no way that Mr. Sandusky's alleged sexual attacks on young boys should just disappear.

Ever since it was a dream, I've been following the work of the Joe Sandusky Foundation, the brainchild of veteran Baltimore sportscaster Gerry Sandusky. I look in on it every so often to offer readers a chance to observe the growth of a work of passion and dedication.A couple of years ago, Gerry was driving to Pennsylvania when he had a vision. He was going to start a foundation, an opportunity to honor his much-loved older brother who died tragically while Gerry was still in high school.

It was a voice he couldn't identify. Maybe it was his conscience talking or a message, as he prefers to believe, from some higher power. Distinctly it told him: "Start the foundation." Twice more it repeated itself on that July afternoon two years ago during a trip along the interstate highway . . . Baltimore to Pittsburgh.That's what sent Gerry Sandusky into action. He listened to the zTC words as a believer and took them literally. With strong resolve, ,, he organized the Joe Sandusky Foundation, to honor the memory of a brother who died while a football player at Tulsa University.

"Nothing but good things can come of an effort like this," Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula remarked, as he gave WBAL-TV sports anchor Gerry Sandusky a big hug. Shula was the honoree at the Joe Sandusky Foundation's recent first fund-raiser, held at the Marine Mammal Pavilion of the National Aquarium. The foundation was Gerry's creation, named in memory of his brother, Joe, a football player for the University of Tulsa who died at the age of 19. The foundation was established to raise money for Baltimore students to attend trade school or college.

Gerry Sandusky takes you to the third floor of his northern Baltimore County home and points to a book shelf. "There it is," he says. Huh? That's where he keeps his Ravens Super Bowl ring? Where's the glass display case with the spotlight shining on it? And the velvet ropes to keep the riff-raff at arm's length? And maybe a glowering security goon standing by so no one tries any funny business? I have made this trip to see what Sandusky, the long-time WBAL-TV sports director and Ravens broadcaster, plans to do with his Super Bowl ring.

He is 77, the last surviving offensive lineman from the Baltimore Colts' halcyon days of the 1950s. Half a century ago, guard Alex Sandusky made a living carving out daylight for runners named Lenny and L.G. and The Horse, and rebuffing assaults on a slope-shouldered young quarterback who had won the hearts of Colts fans. It was Sandusky's job to safeguard John Unitas, which he did for more than a decade. "You took pride in protecting John. Everyone was focused on that," said Sandusky, a Colt from 1954 through 1966.

The report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh castigated the men in the upper reaches of Penn State's administration, as well football coach Joe Paterno, for not acting in 1998 when they learned that a mother had complained to campus police that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was showering with her 11-year-old son in the football locker room. Mr. Freeh suggests, rightly, that more than a decade of sexual abuse of young boys would have been prevented if Mr. Sandusky had been stopped then.
