Jack Raykovitz, CEO of Second Mile resigns. So the plot thickens as the rumor that Sandusky was pimping out boys from Second Mile is hanging out there.
Raykovitz’ wife is Katherine Genovese and she is connected to Second Mile somehow, maybe executive VP.
Vinnie Politan and Jeanne Casarez on HLN are reporting on this.
Jack Raykovitz is a licensed psychologist who has served as president/CEO of The Second Mile for 28 years. The Second Mile has grown from an organization serving 40 children through one office in Centre County to reaching more than 100,000 children in all 67 counties.
Here he is defending Second Mile back in April when this story first broke: http://www.pennlive.com/editorials/index.ssf/2011/04/post_99.html
And meanwhile Jerry Sandusky is out on bail with no ankle bracelet and there’s an elementary school practically in his back yard. Unbelievable.

How do you like this by Jerry Sandusky:
“In the 2006 Annual Report, I introduced our
campaign to build The Second Mile Center
for Excellence…..that’s why we are committed to building The Second Mile’s Center
for Excellence—the physical facilities necessary to maintain our
current commitments to children and to enhance and expand
the programs of The Second Mile long after I’m gone. Like you, I
want to make certain that the opportunities that we are providing
children today will be available tomorrow. Key components in
the Center for Excellence are an Outdoor Athletic/Recreational
Complex, with fields, courts, a pool, picnic facilities, and challenge
courses; and an Education/Recreation Building, with a gym/
auditorium, dorm space, and a multi-purpose room.
And what will The Second Mile Center for Excellence mean to kids…
For children who have learned to distrust adults—
an honored promise,
For those youngsters who lack permanence—
a sense of stability,
For those who live in squalor and poverty—
a place of cleanliness and beauty,
For youth who experience danger—
an atmosphere of safety,
For kids who live with limits and in isolation—
the opportunity for wonderful experiences,
For the child standing outside of our gates—
an open door, and
As a member of The Second Mile family—
a place to call home
