Michael Pietropola drops the IUP football program to pursue his dream!

by John Vogt – April 1, 2015

Star Quarterback Michael Pietropola shocks Wellsboro this morning with his announcement that he is dropping out of the football program at IUP. Ed Weaver has all the details today on Home Page Sports.

Pietropola finished his Senior year at Wellsboro with 23 touchdown passes for the season and 68 for his career, a new Wellsboro Varsity Football Record* and District IV record. He also ended this last season with 2,162 yards becoming the only quarterback in Wellsboro history to throw for over 2,000 yards in multiple seasons. His final career yardage stands at 6,150.

“Michael is a great kid and great athlete, but a better person,” Coach Hildebrand said of his former quarterback. “He has a great work ethic and that’s what has gotten him to the point where he is today. He deserves all the recognition and everything that he gets. It didn’t happen overnight. Michael put a lot of hours and hard work into each off-season, including extra time in the weight room. Michael has set a new precedent for quarterbacks at Wellsboro and in District IV. So, obviously we are all shocked and surprised by Michael’s announcement today. I don’t think any of us saw this coming. That said, if this is what Michael wants to do, instead of playing football, we wish him the very best.” Hildebrand went on to say that Michael often brought cookies and pastries into film sessions. At the time everybody thought that his Mom was making this stuff. But, now the truth is finally out there – it was Michael, not Mom doing the baking.

Some of Michael’s closest friends, who have asked not to be named, said that they have actually witnessed Michael roasting a duck before a big game, along with other entrees like pot roast and Mahi Mahi.

Principal David Krick seemed perplexed over Michael’s decision, but was also supportive stating, “if this is the career path that Michael has chosen, it’s okay with us. I just hope he brings us some samples of his work.”

Home Page Sports also talked with Michael’s Mom and Dad on today’s feature. Mom seemed very happy about Michael’s decision, while Michael’s Dad seemed a little down. Michael’s grandfather was not available for comment.

All of us here at Wellsboro Home Page wish Michael Pietropola the very best in all he does. And Michael…thanks for the memories.

Local teacher honored by state and community at award ceremony

by Rhonda Pearson – March 31, 2015

On Friday, March 27, Mrs. Carla Starkweather – a third grade teacher at Don Gill Elementary School – was awarded the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award for the State of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Steve Adams, Principal, opened the presentation by welcoming all in attendance. Teachers and students from grades second through fourth came to support Mrs. Starkweather.

Tom Brown, Jr. Vice State Commander and Americanism Chairman was invited to the podium to present the award. He was excited for Mrs. Starkweather and the school. Brown stated, “No one up here has ever won the award so it is really outstanding.” Mr. Brown presented Carla Starkweather with two plaques acknowledging her as the Smart/Maher, VFW teacher of the year for the entire state of Pennsylvania, for Kindergarten through 5th grade. Many offered congratulations to Carla such as Master Sergeant Clare Emery from our local VFW, Commander Dan Riepple from the VFW 15th District, and Superintendent Mr. Chris Morral.

Mrs. Starkweather was also presented a plaque from Joan S. Hart, Borough Council President. Tioga County Commissioners Mark Hamilton, Erick Coolidge and Roger Bunn presented a resolution thanking Carla Starkweather for her outstanding service.

Some of the requirements for this reward include being a teacher identified as someone who promotes civic responsibility, teaches citizen education topics, understands flag etiquette and is patriotic just to name a few. Representative Matt Baker stated that one reason she was nominated is because of Carla’s ability to address all the students learning needs; no matter how challenging they may be. The Administration, Carla’s colleagues and even the children in her class wrote essays on what they appreciate about Mrs. Starkweather and why they felt she should be nominated.

Representative Baker also gave some facts about the competition and what Mrs. Starkweather faced while competing for the award. There are 67 counties in the state of Pennsylvania representing 12.8 million people and Carla is the sole winner for grades Kindergarten through 5th. The District competition consisted of the following counties: Tioga, Potter, Lycoming, Clinton and Cameron. At the State level competition Carla went up against 23 other district winners, before being selected to receive the state award.

At one point in the ceremony Mr. Adams had Mrs. Starkweather’s children come up on stage to help gather some of her awards. He addressed the audience saying,” we wanted to include Mrs. Starkweather’s children and family because teaching takes a great sacrifice.” Mr. Adams went on to say that, “the reason teachers do what they do is for you guys in the audience.”

On behalf of all of us here at Wellsboro Home Page we want to congratulate Mrs. Carla Starkweather for her outstanding achievement. In addition, we’d like to thank all of the teachers in our community who are out there everyday performing one of the most important jobs on earth – teaching our children. Thanks for watching.

½ Stick Butter
3 tbsp Vanilla
1 C Coconut – toasted

1 Baked Pie Crust

Heat milk and ½ cup of sugar to scalding (when little bubbles form on the sides of pan) stirring often. While that is heating, whisk the yolks, eggs, ½ cup sugar and corn starch together in a separate bowl. When the milk comes to scalding, take a cup of the warm milk and pour into the egg mixture and whisk and then pour back into the milk, whisking all the time.

IT’S A DOG’S LIFE!
Some of the important reasons we take our pets to a groomer are mentioned in this article and talked about today on our feature with Mary Tyre of Pampered Pooch. When most of us think about grooming we picture our dogs looking and smelling great! However, groomers can also detect early signs of illness in our pets, giving us information to relay to our veterinarians.
They can also help to protect our families health by identifying an infestation of parasites such as fleas, ticks and tapeworms which can be transmitted to us. Another way grooming benefits our pets is by making the animals more comfortable by the process of trimming their nails, clearing hair out of their ears and removing matted hair – just to mention a few! The lack of hair and dander in our homes left (due to the groomers’ help) will help keep allergies from irritating and leaves your house cleaner.

HORNETS BACK ON TRACK
The Wellsboro Boys and Girls Track Team has had a slow start to the season after the first meet was canceled due to weather. Wellsboro’s Head Coach Elizabeth Hoover commented on how the weather has not been on there side. She states that there has been snow and rain covering the track making it hard for the athletes to get outside and practice there events.

Looking at the Boys side of things, Seniors Michael Pietropola and Nick Marple are looking to have a big impact on the team. They are both two strong legs on the 4×100 relay team and also do well in other events. When asked about their thoughts for the upcoming season they both commented on how they wanted to beat their personal records from previous seasons. The Boys team brings back a lot of veterans with a good nucleus of underclassmen and hope for a strong finish in the NTL.

While the Boys Team is looking to improve, the Girls Team is trying to claim NTL Championship once again. They have almost everyone back from last season, including a State Qualifying 4×100 relay team. On that team is Raisa Rogers, Jada Jackson, Lauren Bleggi, and Lindsey Graver. When we asked Lauren Bleggi about her goals for this season she said that she was hoping make it back to the State Track Meet. Another Hornet athlete looking to make a big difference is Meghan Bodine. She is a senior thrower, who excels in many events as well. When asked about her favorite place to compete she said, “I can’t wait to go to Athens.” The excitement for both the girls and the guys team is here and they can’t wait to compete.

Providing great grooming and care for man’s best friend!

by Sara Vogt – March 25, 2015

Some of the important reasons we take our pets to a groomer are mentioned in this article and talked about today on our feature with Mary Tyre of Pampered Pooch. When most of us think about grooming we picture our dogs looking and smelling great! However, groomers can also detect early signs of illness in our pets, giving us information to relay to our veterinarians.
They can also help to protect our families health by identifying an infestation of parasites such as fleas, ticks and tapeworms which can be transmitted to us. Another way grooming benefits our pets is by making the animals more comfortable by the process of trimming their nails, clearing hair out of their ears and removing matted hair – just to mention a few! The lack of hair and dander in our homes left (due to the groomers’ help) will help keep allergies from irritating and leaves your house cleaner.
All of the products used at Pampered Pooch are natural and help to bring healing to the skin and hair, and none of the shampoos contain detergent which would dry out the skin. At the Pet Salon and Boutique they offer many services, including self-service wash if you would like to wash your dog yourself. They provide the towels and shampoo and they do the clean up!
The staff at Pampered Pooch includes DeEtta Patrick, Amanda Rouse and Jessica Cuda, who are more than happy to answer any questions that you would have about their grooming services. You can check out their Facebook page here.
Remember, (as stated in the video above), they only take in your pets by appointment – so if you are interested in having an appointment you can call them at (570)-724-8999. Pampered Pooch is located at 64 R Main Street in Wellsboro, PA.

Cole & Burd Subaru dealership presents check to Animal Care Sanctuary

by Sara Vogt – March 17, 2015

Recently at Cole & Burd in Mansfield, PA Mark Burd presented a check to the Animal Care Sanctuary as part of the Subaru “Share the Love” Event. The check, in the amount of $9,514 dollars, was presented to the Executive Director of ACS, Joan Smith-Reese and the Wellsboro Director, Wendy Reber. Also there for the presentation was the District Sales Manager of Subaru for Northeast PA, Adam Woodhull. Adam explained the “Share the Love” Sales Event has taken place for the past seven years. This event runs from late November to the end of the year. People who purchase Subarus during that time frame can select one of the four National Charities or one home town charity in which Subaru will donate $250.00 in their name. This year Subaru donated $15,000,000. Cole and Burd chose to select a home town charity – the Animal Care Sanctuary. For more information on the Subaru please go to ColeAndBurdSubaru.com

Joan Smith-Reese of ACS explained that some of money from the check will go to provide food, medical care and vaccinations for the animals. One of the greatest needs right now in Wellsboro is an isolation unit, which will allow them to separate the animals that are ill from the rest of the population. When we asked Wendy Reber what some of the main services were she mentioned re-homing of the animals through adoption, obedience training and canine good citizenship training, and low cost veterinarian services.

If you would like to help ACS please visit their website for more information AnimalCareSanctuary.com or call them at their East Smithfield office at 570-596-2200 or the Wellsboro office at 570-724-3687.

Delmar Township Board of Supervisors are unanimous on their decision.

by Austin Dragovich – March 17, 2015

A new development today regarding the Wellsboro-Johnston Airport expansion project: the Delmar Township Board of Supervisors has unanimously passed a resolution supporting the project. This comes after the Wellsboro Borough Council and Tioga County both adopted resolutions opposing the use of drill cuttings in any areas other than controlled landfills. The Delmar resolution is particularly important because the Wellsboro-Johnson Airport is located in Delmar Township.

Craig Musser, the manager of the airport, said of Delmar Township’s resolution, “I think that this is a step forward for the Grand Canyon Airport Authority and the project.”

The resolution can be viewed in its entirety below. (Click to enlarge)

High school faculty defeat students in memorial basketball game!

by John Vogt & Drew Patrick – March 16, 2015

Today on Wellsboro Home Page we broadcast the highlights from this past Saturday’s 4th annual Casey L. Patrick Memorial Basketball Game (CLPBG). This event is a special benefit played by the Wellsboro School District faculty and students from the boys and girls basketball teams. The faculty won the first year followed by two straight victories from the students. This past Saturday the faculty prevailed bringing the overall record to a tie at two games each. Next year should be a sight to see with the faculty getting a little older but wiser and the students performing with their youthful speed.

During this year’s game the students won the opening tip-off leading to a early 3 pointer. Mr. Mayo answered quickly with 2. Ms. Miller gets a big block later in the first quarter; that’s fun to watch. And the faculty used their famous cherry picking play to rack up another 2 points.

Then Jake Singer helped lead the students on a big run with a 3 pointer and Mrs. West scores the first points of her CLPBG career. Regan Rogers came up with another great block to close the quarter.

There was a very awkward moment in the game when Kieron Smethers stuns the entire building with a lonesome dunk while both teams get caught standing on the wrong side of the court. Apparently Coach Outman was told that it was, “teachers ball”. LOL! Nonetheless, the faculty led by 1 point going into half-time.

During the half time festivities Brooklyn Chereko dazzled the crowd as she hit two baskets in the 50/50 foul shot competition. However but the match was won by Brandon Tuttle who hit 5 straight baskets from the foul line. Brandon promptly donated his winnings back to the Casey L. Patrick Scholarship Fund.

You will have to watch the highlights above to see all the fun that took place during the second half. It’s hard to put into words. You really have to see it to believe it! The students made a valiant effort to come back but when it was all over the teachers came out victorious with a score of 94-88.

The total funds raised so far for this years CLPBG fundraiser totals $3,558.00 But, you can still give by making checks payable to Casey L. Patrick Memorial Scholarship Fund. Mail your donation to Trust & Investments 90-92 Main Street, PO Box 58, Wellsboro, PA 16901. If you need help, contact Mary Wood at the C&N Trust Department by calling 1-800-487-8784. Proceeds go to benefit the Casey L. Patrick Memorial Scholarship Fund. Let’s try to break $4,000.00! Thanks!

DECORATING DECODED: ACCESSORIES
Accessories are the small touches and decorative accents that bring a room together and set it apart from the ordinary. They can include wall art, throw pillows, antiques, sculptures, keepsakes and collectibles. They add color, texture and detail to a space and they make it user friendly and visually complete. While they should reflect your individual personality and taste, they also need to compliment the design and add to the aesthetic value of the room.
Be selective with accessories. Overdoing the number in a room can make it feel cluttered, but not having enough can leave a room looking incomplete.

SIMPLE GIFTS IN CONCERT!
On Wednesday, Home Page spoke with Linda Littleton, one of the members of the performing group Simple Gifts, about their concert at the Deane Center on Friday night, March 13th, at 7:30PM.
Linda and her musical partner Karen Hirshon have been playing together for 19 years, performing a variety of international music with many different instruments. Some of their instruments are rare and probably most of those coming to the concerts have never seen them before. Their passion is to take simple melodies and make up harmonies and counter melodies that they develop for presentation. They spend hours on this process and enjoy every moment!

HORNET HAPPENINGS – THE FFA
In today’s feature Janessa Davis interviews a few FFA members and AgriScience Teacher, Melanie Berndtson at the Wellsboro Area High School.
Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, Tim Kaltenbach, tells us about the National FFA Organization that promotes leadership and agriculture nationwide.
Russel Avery, Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, informs us that “FFA” is the older term for “Future Farmers of America”. However, in the year of 1988, it was recognized with a much shorter title that it is now referred to still today. “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premiere leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.”
FFA was started in 1928 in a small town in Virginia,” says Wellsboro’s vice president, Tabby Brooks, of the Grand Canyon FFA chapter. Over the years, FFA’s membership criteria has evolved. In the year of 1965, FFA allowed membership admittance of African-Americans and allowed women in the year of 1969. Tabby truly informs us that anyone with an interest in agriculture can join FFA.
An “SAE” (Supervised Agricultural Experience) project is a requirement for every student in any agricultural class, taking place outside of the classroom. There are so many options of SAE’s! Entrepreneurship, placement, research, and even exploratory are examples of the categories for the endless SAE options.

Janessa Davis & Principal Krick present the FFA program at WAHS

by Janessa Davis – March 13, 2015

In today’s feature Janessa Davis interviews a few FFA members and AgriScience Teacher, Melanie Berndtson at the Wellsboro Area High School.
Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, Tim Kaltenbach, tells us about the National FFA Organization that promotes leadership and agriculture nationwide. This chapter has 42 members, and they are all recognized on the last week of February for “National FFA Week”.
Russel Avery, Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, informs us that “FFA” is the older term for “Future Farmers of America”. However, in the year of 1988, it was recognized with a much shorter title that it is now referred to still today. “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premiere leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.” This statement projects the FFA mission of all members. Something you may hear from any member would be the FFA motto, “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, and living to serve.”
“FFA was started in 1928 in a small town in Virginia,” says Wellsboro’s vice president, Tabby Brooks, of the Grand Canyon FFA chapter. Over the years, FFA’s membership criteria has evolved. In the year of 1965, FFA allowed membership admittance of African-Americans and allowed women in the year of 1969. Tabby truly informs us that anyone with an interest in agriculture can join FFA.

Wellsboro High School Spanish students head south for class trip!

by Morgan Koziar – March 13, 2015

Hola y bienvenido a Wellsboro Home Page! Two years ago, Home Page correspondent Morgan Koziar had the opportunity to travel to Spain with the Spanish class. On Thursday, March 12th she spoke with some of the students leaving for their Spanish class trip to Costa Rica.
Gillan Alafoginis, Tanner Swan, Lauren Bleggi, and Brett Kendrick shared their plans for the trip and what they were looking forward to most. Jarret Dean, Tyler Kennedy, James Mundy, and Peyton Wilson will also be traveling with the class as well. Every year, Wellsboro High School offers a trip to the students studying a language to travel abroad. Many students take advantage of the opportunity and make memories that last a lifetime. The excursion to Costa Rica will consist of horseback riding, zip lining, and white water rafting in the Sarapiquí river. The students depart on Friday, March 13th. The staff at Wellsboro Home Page prays not only for a safe trip, but an enjoyable one as well. We look forward to hearing about their experience when they return.

Come enjoy this interactive performance at the Deane Center!

by Sara Vogt – March 12, 2015

Today we spoke with Linda Littleton, one of the members of the performing group Simple Gifts, about their concert at the Deane Center on Friday night, March 13th, at 7:30PM.

Linda and her musical partner Karen Hirshon have been playing together for 19 years, performing a variety of international music with many different instruments. Some of their instruments are rare and probably most of those coming to the concerts have never seen them before. Their passion is to take simple melodies and make up harmonies and counter melodies that they develop for presentation. They spend hours on this process and enjoy every moment!

Linda and Karen switch with ease among the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, recorders, bowed psaltery, hammered dulcimer, baritone fiddle, guitar, and percussion.

This concert at the Deane Center will be set in a cabaret style and attendees are encouraged to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy in this relaxed atmosphere. Linda said they really enjoy interacting with the audience and they really like the mixed aged audience. Children and adults can both learn about the instruments and music during the concert. Sometimes the audience is given the opportunity to choose what country they want to hear music from and the duo answers questions about their instruments.

Once again, Simple Gifts will be performing this Friday, March 13th at 7:30 pm at the Deane Center. The cost is $20 for an adult and $10 for children. This Thursday – if you mention this feature on Home Page and call the Deane Center at (570)-724-6220 or stop by their establishment – you can purchase tickets at a discounted price: $15 for adults and $7.50 for children. This Thursday, Home Page will also be giving away three sets of tickets on our Facebook page – so watch for that!

Turn your treasures into home decor accessories with Tabitha Dietrich

by Tabitha Dietrich – March 11, 2015

Accessories are the small touches and decorative accents that bring a room together and set it apart from the ordinary. They can include wall art, throw pillows, antiques, sculptures, keepsakes and collectibles. They add color, texture and detail to a space and they make it user friendly and visually complete. While they should reflect your individual personality and taste, they also need to compliment the design and add to the aesthetic value of the room.
Be selective with accessories. Overdoing the number in a room can make it feel cluttered, but not having enough can leave a room looking incomplete.
When choosing accessories, you first need to consider your room’s style. Don’t use an ornate Victorian heirloom in a minimalist, contemporary space. It will look inappropriate and out of place. Accessories should support the environment’s aesthetic and not work against it.
Use accessories that are in scale with the room. A small space will be dominated by items that are too large, while small items will disappear in an expansive space.
Choose accessories in colors that complement your design. Contrasting colors create a visual pop while monochromatic colors blend in and create a soothing effect. Consider the overall aesthetic you want to create and choose colors for accessories accordingly. Choose one or two colors for your accessories. As a designer, I often use multiple colors, however, if you’re not feeling that confident, one or two is a safe choice.
When deciding where to place your treasures, explore your display options. You can use accessories anywhere including walls, window ledges, your couch and even the floor. Create a focal point in each area you choose to accessorize.
Grouping objects with a common design element, like color, theme or size, makes a bolder statement. For example, a collection of botanical prints hung on the wall together makes a greater impact then if hung individually throughout the entire house.
Even numbered groupings placed symmetrically give a more formal feel. For a more relaxed setting, group objects in odd numbers and asymmetrically.
To create more visual interest, remember the rule of 3: High, medium and low. Begin by placing the largest accessory first, then work your way down in size.
After you place each item, step back and assess the arrangement for clutter. Regroup or replace items as necessary until you are satisfied. Don’t be afraid to follow your instincts….you’ll know you achieved your goal when it just feels right.

Protect your furry family friends from these materials

by Melissa Bravo – March 10, 2015

Those of us with pets have had very few opportunities to get out and about the past two months. Especially during the weeks when temperatures plunged to well below zero; and wind chills were in the -20’s. In the last few days though, temperatures have finally risen above freezing. This, along with a few clear nights followed by bright blue skies is creating a slick situation. Many areas where surface snow has melted have now solidified into a thick glaze of ice from dripping roof eves, driveway run off, and the shedding of the ice still lingering on trees. The abundance of ice on sidewalks, driveways, walkways, and roads means that a significant amount of rock salt, cinder’s, and wood ash have gone out on these slick areas in the past few days. We intuitively recognize the dangers of slipping on the ice and shudder at the thought of dislocating a shoulder, spraining a wrist, or even worse, breaking some bones from a nasty fall. As a result of this ice accumulation, most of us have liberally spread one of these deicing materials around our homes and businesses.

It is important to remember though that our cats, dogs, and chickens may come in contact with these materials every time they venture outdoors. Below is a list of some of the more commonly used deicing materials and the danger’s they might pose to pets, livestock, and young children.

Salt: Rock salt and table salt are one and the same – the only difference is that table salt has been ‘refined’ to remove impurities of other chemicals leaving just the sodium and chloride. Once purified, table salt is 99% sodium chloride. Raw salt, freshly mined, contains calcium sulfate, as well as potassium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium carbonate, and calcium magnesium acetate. The danger to pets and livestock is the corrosiveness of these salts. While calcium magnesium acetate is considered the least corrosive of all deicing products, any salt used for deicing that contains chloride is to some degree corrosive. In the same manner that the chloride component breaks down the oxide layer of metal, resulting in the corrosion of our vehicles, a similar reaction occurs on your pet’s skin, causing irritation dermatitis. Ingestion of the salt occurs when the pet’s lick their paws and remove frozen ice crystals-or when chickens do what chickens do. Ingestion of excessive rock salt can cause vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, disorientation, loss of appetite, increased water consumption, seizures, and in some instances if too much is consumed- death.

Coal ash: Road cinders, also known as bottom ash, are the mineral residues that remain after burning of the coal. The major residues of bottom ash are oxides of silicon, aluminum, iron, and calcium. The biggest risk to pet’s and children from coal ash is from accidental inhalation which could cause respiratory tract irritation such as coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. Swallowing fly ash may cause abdominal discomfort. Your pet’s paws could be cut by the abrasive edges of the coal particles, and the alkaline composition could cause contact dermatitis.
Wood ash: Wood ash contains calcium carbonate as its major component and some potash. It contains very little phosphate and trace amounts of iron, manganese, zinc, copper and some heavy metals. These ingredients are very similar to retail garden fertilizers and home owners often use their wood stove ash in their garden’s and flowerbeds. Pet safety concerns are similar to those of road cinders- with more emphasis on the dermatitis that may result from the fine grained particles working their way into their coat.

If your pets do come in contact with these deicing agents, especially rock salt formulations, wash their paws before they have a chance to lick them clean. For a list of pet-friendly deicing products search the internet for ‘pet friendly deicing products’ or ask your local feed store or veterinarian for assistance.

Hornets fall to Mahanoy Area on last-second shot.

by Ed Weaver – March 9, 2015

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Basketball team’s season came to an end on Saturday, March 7 with a 42-40 loss to Mahanoy Area in the first round of PIAA State playoffs.

The Hornets and the District 11 champion Golden Bears were very evenly matched, but Mahanoy Area pulled the game out in the end. The Golden Bears’ strong outside shooting got the Hornets down 14-4 early and they held that lead after the first quarter. Wellsboro’s shots started falling in the second quarter and they outscored the Golden Bears 16-9 to trail 23-20 at halftime.

Wellsboro’s shots continued to fall in the third quarter as they outscored the Golden Bears 11-7 in the quarter to take a 31-30 lead heading into the final frame. Mahanoy Area erased the Hornets’ lead in the fourth quarter and both teams battled back and forth until the final seconds.

The Hornets were looking to win their first state playoff game in 20 years as the score was tied at 40-40 with time runing down in the fourth quarter. Mahanoy Area held for the last shot and with under five seconds remaining on the clock, the Golden Bears’ Matthew Yedsena drove baseline and hit a jumper over the outstretched arm of Senior Michael Pietropola to give the Golden Bears the 42-40 victory.

Pietropola led the Hornets with 17 points and four rebounds. Senior Jake Mitchell had six points and six rebounds, Senior Kieron Smethers finished with five points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Junior Dawson Prough pitched in five points, Sophomore Jacob Singer had three, and Sophomore Brandon Lamphier and Freshman Quinn Henry each added two points.

Pietropola ends a great senior year with 464 points, good enough for eighth all-time in a single-season. The senior also finished with 1,186 career points. Smethers ended his career with 830 points, 672 rebounds, and 147 blocked shots, and Mitchell ended his career with 124 points and 181 rebounds.

The loss ends the Hornets’ season at 19-7. WellsboroAthletics.com would like to congratulate the team on a great year, and thank Michael, Kieron, and Jake for all their hard work and dedication during their careers.

GET SOME SLEEP!
Did you know that not getting enough sleep can literally kill you? Monday began National Sleep Awareness Week and this feature broadcast is specifically designed to make you aware of the importance of sleep.

We visit the Sleep Center at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital and talk with Dr. Russell Gombosi and Bonnie Kendrick, RPSGT. We also get the opportunity to tour the sleep center. Best of all, we find out just what happens while we sleep and the huge physical dangers of not getting enough.

The Sleep Center can diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders. Untreated, sleep disorders may negatively affect an individual’s quality of life and make it hard to carry out daily activities.

Grab your calendar and spend a few moments with us as we get ready for what’s coming next in our community!

The next big game for the Wellsboro Hornets Varsity Boys Basketball team is coming up this weekend. The Hornets lost to Loyalsock 54-35 this past Saturday, but because they finished second in Class AA of District IV, they move on to Pottsville, PA where they will face Mahanoy Area at Martz Hall. For those of you traveling to the game, a few reminders to get everyone back home safely. It’s going to take you about 2 and a half hours to get to Pottsville from Wellsboro. Give yourself plenty of time to get there so you don’t have to rush. Be alert and drive safely. Remember, no texting while driving – not even for a second! At 55 miles per hour you will travel blind for 80.67 feet in just one second with your eyes off the road. Anything can happen. Drive the speed limit and don’t get so caught up in car conversations that you become a distracted driver. Let’s get everyone back home safely.

Fiddler on the Roof is now being presented at the Wellsboro High School. Tonight’s performance will begin at 7:30. There will also be showings this Saturday, March 7th at 2:00 PM (not 2:30 PM as previously stated) and then again at 7:30. All showings will be held in the high school auditorium. The 33 cast members, 15 orchestra players and 12 Ensemble Cast Members, stage crew and construction set workers, backstage lighting, sound crew and choreography designers have been working for months to prepare an excellent production. The professional costumes also help set the stage in bringing the Tevye’s stories to life. We hope you will be able to catch one of these fabulous shows.

And finally a PET SAFETY REMINDER. The abundance of ice on sidewalks, driveways, walkways, and roads means that a significant amount of rock salt, cinder’s, and wood ash have gone out on these slick areas in the past few days. We intuitively recognize the dangers of slipping on the ice and shudder at the thought of dislocating a shoulder, spraining a wrist, or even worse, breaking some bones from a nasty fall. As a result of this ice accumulation, many of us have liberally spread one of these deicing materials around our homes and businesses. But it’s important to remember that these substances can be dangerous to our pets and farm animals. Our cats, dogs, and chickens may come in contact with these materials every time they venture outdoors. Below is a list of some of the more commonly used deicing materials and the danger’s they might pose to pets, livestock, and young children. If your pets do come in contact with these deicing agents, especially rock salt formulations, wash their paws before they have a chance to lick them clean. For a list of pet-friendly deicing products search the internet for ‘pet friendly deicing products’ or ask your local feed store or veterinarian for assistance.
