From the story:

Arlene Milton stayed at her restaurant, The Diamond Deli, until 11:30 p.m. Monday night and arrived at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday to finish preparing a breakfast buffett.

She opened at 5 a.m. offering a spread that included eggs, home fries, fruit salad, sausage, and sausage gravy with homemade muffins.But by 7 a.m., the shop — which she has owned for nine years and is adorned with old photographs and other Bellefonte memorabilia — only had about five customers.

“I’m disappointed. Where are these people?” she said. “You know, they come into town here, now they ought to be in here to eat.”

But she figured things would pick up.When Sandusky waived his preliminary hearing an hour-and-a-half later, those hopes faded.“All this food! As if it grows on your back,” she said. “Forget it. If it goes to trial, I’m closing the doors.”
