His Thousand Hills is hosting their 4th Annual Deeds to Seeds Auction on Friday, November 4th at 6:00PM. It will be held on campus, beginning with a silent auction during a dinner by donation provided by His Thousand Hills. It will then be followed by a traditional auction below the dining hall. There will surely be something for everyone – with a wide variety of gift cards donated by local businesses and restaurants, the opportunity to have 4 hours of manual work by 3 strong young men, a three-hour limousine ride/night on the town, and so much more.

Deeds to Seeds Auction has continuously helped HTH raise money for projects and things that are greatly needed around campus. This year, the money raised will go to projects such as: a new roof for the gymnasium, a walkway between the dining hall and cabins, and a new septic system.

Wellsboro advances to rematch with East Juniata Tuesday night

galeton_districts

by Ed Weaver – Monday, October 31

The Wellsboro Boys Soccer team advanced to the next round of District IV Class A playoffs with a 2-0 win over Galeton on Saturday, October 29.

“I’m very proud of the boys tonight. They really implemented our game plan,” said head coach John Shaffer after picking up his 90th career win. “We limited Galeton of clear chances and we created a lot of quality chances. Our attackers movement is a handful to deal with and in the back the defense is really coming together. Cameron Tennis had an amazing goal line clearance tonight in the 2nd half to keep the shutout going.”

The Hornets went up midway through the first half on a goal by junior Tanner Runyan. Later in the second half sophomore Brett Rudy found senior Josiah Hill, who converted a header, to make the score 2-0 with 30:24 remaining.

Wellsboro edged Galeton 12-10 in shot attempts, but Galeton won the corner kicks 7-1. Senior Casey Hoover made 9 saves in goal for his 16th career shutout.

Next up for the Hornets (15-4) is a rematch with East Juniata, who knocked Wellsboro out of the playoffs last year, on Tuesday, November 1 at a date and time to be determined.

“We are going to face a really good East Juniata squad Tuesday night,” Shaffer continued. “I hope that we can really give them a game and improve on how we did against them last year.”

Head Coach Rick Novak Picks Up First Coaching Victory

by Mansfield Athletic Department – October 31, 2016

MANSFIELD – Mansfield’s defense forced five turnovers including four interceptions to lead the Mountaineers to a 27-0 win over Post University on Senior Day Saturday afternoon at Karl Van Norman Field.

The win was the first for head coach Rick Novak.

“It was a great win for our seniors,” said Novak. “I’m so proud of those 11 young men who have been the heart and soul of the program for the past four years and proud of our team for giving them a win on Senior Day. They were determined not to be denied.”

The Mountaineer defense was dominating all day holding Post to minus-eight yards on three plays in the opening series of the game.

Following a 21-yard punt, Mansfield got the ball on the Post 38-yard line running the ball seven times in a nine play drive that resulted in a seven-yard touchdown run by quarterback Adam Hutchison. Paul Harrison’s extra-point attempt was good give Mansfield a 7-0 lead after just six minutes to play.

Mansfield defense rose to the challenge again on Post next series, forcing the Eagles to put after three plays.

The Mountaineers got the ball on their own 46-yard line with Trenton Smith running for 12-yards on the first play of the series before freshman D.J. McLean Jr. when up over two defenders in pull in a 37-yard pass from Hutchison on Post 1-yard line. Hunter Brown scored his first touchdown of the season on the next play making the score 14-0 after Harrison’s kick.

Post crossed the 50-yard line for the first time all game in the second quarter but the MU defense responded with interceptions from Kyle Post and Isaac Havens.

Mansfield took the 14-0 lead into halftime before increasing their advantage to 21-0 with a nine-play, 57-yard drive capped off with a two-yard touchdown run by Trenton Smith.

Mansfield closed out the scoring two series later when freshman Kardale Taylor stepped in front of a pass and returned it 49-yards for a touchdown and 28-0 lead.

The defense held Post to 135 yards in total offense including just 21 yards on the ground.

Senior Doug Bird had the best game of his career racking up a team-best nine tackles, all of the solo. Fellow seniors John Capwell and Mike Bucek each had seven stops with Havens recording six tackles and an interception. Senior Brandon Pace also had an interception.

Hutchinson led the offense completing 9-of-19 passes for 128 yards and no interceptions. Freshman D.J. McLean jr., had three catches for 73 yards with Danny Diaz-Walton catching two balls for 17 yards. Senior Kurt Logan also had two catches.

LeRon Strothers led the ran for a game-high 57-yards on 17 carries with Smith picking up 43-yards on 12 carries.

Cris Leggio led Post with a game-high 12 tackles.

Mansfield, which has picked off eight passes over the last two games, wins its first game of the season and will travel to Chestnut Hill next Saturday in the season finale.

The Fifth Season

Wellsboro finishes regular season 10-0 with shutout against North Penn

by Ed Weaver

4 years ago first year head coach Matt Hildebrand went undefeated in the regular season. 4 years later he accomplished the same feat.

Prior to Hildebrand taking the helm, the Hornets were coming off a four year slump where they won a combined 11 games after qualifying for their first trip to District IV playoffs in 2008. Four years later, Hildebrand has flipped the script and has rattled off 38 wins and turned the Hornets into an NTL powerhouse and District IV champions.

“It’s gratifying in the fact that I’ve put in a lot of time and with that comes sacrificing family time. My wife (Amber) has been terrific. I wouldn’t be able to do this without her,” Hildebrand said. “She supports me in everything I do, and now having a son its added even more to the plate. She never complains, she wants me to keep doing this. We’re a football family. It’s meant a lot because you do spend a lot of time away from your family investing in the kids, but like I’ve said they’re a part of our family. We consider them, myself, my wife and all the kids as family. We’re trying to build this atmosphere and you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with. None of this would be possible without the coaching staff that I have. The staff is almost all intact since the time I started and without that consistency you wouldn’t have all these wins and these numbers. Without those guys this wouldn’t be possible. Mike Pietropola every week has these guys ready to go. Hopefully we can all stay together, keep the band together and keep this train rolling. We’re having fun as coaches, we enjoy being around the kids, and the kids are having fun.”

Tioga County rivals Wellsboro and North Penn-Mansfield battled in the annual Morton F. Jones Trophy game on Friday, October 28 and Saturday October 29 in the final regular season game of the 2016 season. Coming into Friday night, Wellsboro was 9-0, North Penn was 8-1, and both teams were looking to win the NTL Large School Division title and bring home the Morton F. Jones trophy.

Both teams traded drives to start the game before the Hornets settled in. On the Hornets’ third play from scrimmage junior Quinn Henry dropped back to pass and rolled out to his right and found senior Brandon Lamphier open behind the Panther secondary. Lamphier caught the ball, but the North Penn defender wrestled the ball away from him, Lamphier brought it back, and wound up in the end zone with the ball for 6 points. Junior Nic Ingerick’s was wide of the mark and the Hornets led 6-0 with 4:59 left in the first quarter.

The Panthers’ moved the ball effectively on their following drive, picking up 2 first downs to midfield, only to have Joel Whitteker fumble a jet sweep handoff. Junior Hunter Brown pounced on the ball for the Hornets, setting them up with great starting field position. The Wellsboro offense put together an 8-play drive, highlighted by a 16 yard swing pass from Henry to junior Chase Moser and runs by Henry, that chewed up the rest of the first quarter clock. Henry setup the Hornets with a first-and-goal after breaking off an 11 yard run down to the Panther 9, then finished the drive two plays later from 5 yards out. Wellsboro dug into their bag of tricks and Henry connected with junior Dalton Prough on the two-point conversion to give the Hornets a 14-0 lead after the first.

Wellsboro added one more score in the half after the area’s best defense held the Panthers to a three-and-out and forced a punt. The offense went back to work as Moser and sophomore Robert Brown picked up chunks of yardage before Henry broke a huge 33-yard run to the Panther 20-yard line. A 14 yard pass from senior Parker Jones put Wellsboro at the 6-yard line, then Henry again found the end zone, this time from 6 yards out, to push the score to 20-0 with 8:10 remaining in the half.

Neither team could generate any offense as both defenses stepped up their play before the half ended. Once the clock hit 0, Wellsboro found themselves up 20-0 then everything went black. Literally. Karl Van Norman Field on the campus of Mansfield University, Wellsboro’s home away from home for the 2016 season, experienced a blackout forcing University officials and police to suspend the game. Both teams agreed to meet Saturday afternoon over at the Panthers’ home field at Island Park.

Once play resumed on Saturday afternoon, Wellsboro started with the ball to begin the third quarter. The Hornets came out with their ground game to start the drive as Moser broke a run of 10 then a run of 56 down into Panther territory, but 2 negative runs by Henry and a personal foul pushed the Hornets back to midfield. On third-and-long Henry scrambled around to try and make a play but ended up throwing an interception to Whitteker. The play wouldn’t hurt the Hornets as Prough intercepted Brock Burleigh on thrid-and-11 to give the Hornets back the ball.

“It wasn’t an ideal situation going from Mansfield to here, it was a little sloppy over here today,” Hildebrand said of the field conditions. “I would’ve liked to have finished the game last night and we tried to wait it out. The kids have adapted all year, we’ve been on the road all year every game we have to take a bus. The kids have been very flexible with our schedule and have developed the mentality of we’ll play anybody anywhere.”

As both teams struggled with their footing on the afternoon after heavy rains the past two weeks, so did the offenses in the third quarter. The quarter was scoreless, but that didn’t deter the Hornets. After stopping the Panthers on third down the Hornets took over at their own 38. Wellsboro’s drive went in reverse as they were hit with a holding penalty on third down, but on the next play Henry found a seam in the defense and took it 71 yards to paydirt to make the score 26-0.

Wellsboro added one more score late in the game. With junior Collin Pietropola punting, North Penn’s Judson Wise fumbled the return and junior Alex Kozuhowski fell on the ball inside the Panthers’ 5-yard line. 3 plays later senior Dupree Hosey scored from 5 yards out to make the score 32-0 Wellsboro with 2:12 left in the game.

As time ran out, Wellsboro came home with the Jones Trophy for the 5th straight year, their 7th shutout, the NTL Large School Division title, and an undefeated 10-0 regular season. Over the last 4 seasons under Hildebrand, the Hornets have had two 10-0 regular seasons and have won 2 NTL titles. Prior to Hildebrand the last coach to win 2 NTL titles was Ted Yeager in the 1974-75 and the 1977-78 seasons.

Henry went 6-for-8 through the air for 96 yards with an interception and touchdown and rushed for 111 yards and 3 scores on 18 carries. Henry has now thrown for 2,082 yards in his career and has rushed for 1,863 yards and 30 touchdowns.

“It was great execution not only by our offense but our defense,” Henry said. “Obviously another shutout, but our offense is just clicking. The offensive line was making great holes to run the ball through. It was easy to run the ball.”

Moser finishd with 102 yards on 13 carries and Hosey had 7 yards and a touchdown on 4 tries. Lamphier led all the Hornet receivers with 2 catches for 57 yards, while Moser, Jones, Prough and Kozuhowski all caught a pass.

Defensively, the Hornets allowed just 100 yards of total offense by the Panthers. Pietropola had 9 tackles and a sack to lead the Hornets.

“We came out well and played as a team,” Pietropola said. “We just wanted to win the NTL so bad. All the people out there that were hating on us… we just wanted to show them that we were a good football team and we could come out and win.”

Jones had 7 tackles and a pass deflection, senior Dominic Spencer recorded a sack, Prough had an interception, and Hunter Brown, Moser, and Kozuhowski all had 6 tackles.

For the Panthers Burleigh was 8-for-20 passing for 63 yards, Brendan Hill had 36 yards on 16 carries, and Garrett Bickhart had 2 catches for 19 yards.

Next up for the Hornets is a first round District IV Class AA playoff game with #7 Hughesville on Friday, November 5.

MU PSYCH CENTRAL – GAMING (PART 1)
Gaming, whether playing games on a phone, computer, or TV, has a certain tenor to it for those young and old. There are those who think gaming is a “waste of time”, “fascinating”, “weird”, “challenging”, “artistic”, “relaxing”, “a good distraction”, “addicting”, “insightful”, or “problematic”. These are a few of the descriptors people use when they hear the word “gaming”. We all make different associations to this word, depending on how we interpret and experience it. Some love it, some hate it, and some don’t really have any opinion.
Gaming has both positive and negative qualities according to college students at MU. According to our small poll of public opinion, some students don’t find it worth their time to spend doing. They would rather invest in other activities they are more interested in. Others are too busy. For those that do enjoy it, they find it relaxing, challenging, strategic, collaborative, helpful for coping, and artistically inspirational. Depending on interest and lifestyle factors, students choose to spend time in different ways. Gaming is one way to do so.

Athens’ Camden Allen (17:55) qualified for states with a 14th place finish and CV’s Madden Doud (17:56) finished in 15th in 17:56 to make the state cut.

“We really ran well,” said North Penn-Mansfield head coach Jason Fletcher. “I think out of 12 teams in the girls race we came in 7th and Lyndsey came in 6th and was 1 off going to states. Its a disappointment, she taking it well, but she has a really position attitude. She’s already looking ahead to the track season and thinking about the off-season in between.”

Wellsboro head coach Ron Brought was also pleased with his team’s performance.

“We had a really strong day. The conditions are less than favorable but they ended the season well. Both teams ran better than expected, finished well within the NTL placings, but there was some great competition today as well.”

The PIAA Championships will take place in Hershey on Saturday, November 5th.

“I don’t know if there’s ever been more riding on a game than [tonight’s].”

by Ed Weaver – October 28, 2016

This year, the Hornets will meet the Panthers at Mansfield University’s Karl Van Norman Field to determine who will walk away with Morton F.

Coudersport edges Wellsboro varsity volleyball in last regular season match

by Ed Weaver – October 27, 2016

The Wellsboro Varsity Volleyball team suffered a 3-0 loss to Coudersport on Senior Night on Wednesday, October 26.

Coudersport picked up the non-league sweep by winning 25-20, 25-22, and 25-16. The loss drops the Lady Hornets’ record to 12-9 on the year.

Senior Kirsten Florio had 13 kills, senior Morgan Florio had 7 kills, and junior Jillian Graver had 6 kills. Junior Brianne Keane led the team with 23 assists, Morgan Florio also pitched in 12 digs and 5 points, junior Sydney Tremper had 10 digs, and junior Cheyenne Sherman scored 4 points and had 3 blocks.

In the JV match, the young Lady Hornets won 2-0 (25-21, 25-19) to finish the season undefeated under coach Michelle McNett.

“It took a lot of hard work at practices, communication, dedication by all the girls. It was great,” McNett said after her 77th career win.

Next up for the Lady Hornets are the District IV playoffs, something head coach Sharon Zuchowski is excited about.

“We’re really excited to go into districts because we have gone up against every team this year and we have either beat them or been very competitive. We feel like its really a toss-up of who will win this district.”

Unlike last season when they were at the top of their bracket, the defending District IV AA champion Lady Hornets will have to work their way through this year’s bracket.

“We like our position going in,” Zuchowski continued. “We think that because we lost to some of these teams this year that they are going to underestimate us and think that they have an easy win. We’ve got things to show them.”

The District IV AA playoffs will take place on Saturday, October 29 at Williamson High School at a time to be determined.

Dr. Mayo explores students’ thoughts on the pros & cons of gaming

by Dr. Nicolle Mayo, PhD – October 26, 2016

Gaming, whether playing games on a phone, computer, or TV, has a certain tenor to it for those young and old. There are those who think gaming is a “waste of time”, “fascinating”, “weird”, “challenging”, “artistic”, “relaxing”, “a good distraction”, “addicting”, “insightful”, or “problematic”. These are a few of the descriptors people use when they hear the word “gaming”. We all make different associations to this word, depending on how we interpret and experience it. Some love it, some hate it, and some don’t really have any opinion.

Gaming has both positive and negative qualities according to college students at MU. According to our small poll of public opinion, some students don’t find it worth their time to spend doing. They would rather invest in other activities they are more interested in. Others are too busy. For those that do enjoy it, they find it relaxing, challenging, strategic, collaborative, helpful for coping, and artistically inspirational. Depending on interest and lifestyle factors, students choose to spend time in different ways. Gaming is one way to do so.

Because we are continuing our series on technology addiction, gaming is, of course, a part of this conversation. Just like with cell phone use, those who play and enjoy games for the variety of reasons mentioned above could develop an addiction or dependence on it. Like cell phone use, this dependence involves many chemicals in the brain. The major one we are familiar with that has an impact on continued playing is dopamine. This chemical is released when we play games, particularly when we feel challenged to problem-solve and like the challenge, make an accurate choice, or develop a prediction that results in reinforcement (like added points or a promotion to the next level of the game). If we are successful in playing the game, we keep playing. It can be difficult to stop. Dopamine release is what promotes addictive tendencies when we play games, a potential we should be mindful in considering.

Outside of this enjoyment (and potential dependence), playing games has also been debated in terms of its educational value, but also its potential to desensitize us to our surrounding environment. Games can teach us a host of skills in a short period of time, and cater to our individual problem-solving styles. Depending on the game, they can also desensitize us to violence, or hamper the development of environmental awareness. When looking at this debate, which one wins? Well, we have some opinion from MU college students, that sort of hits this issue, but we cannot really make any inferences. We need to crosscheck with what research studies have shown. Stay tuned for our next and last feature on technology addiction to find out more about this debate.

MU Psych Central is supported by the Mansfield Psychology Department, which includes Dr. Gretchen Sechrist, Department Chair and Associate Professor, who specializes in Social Psychology, Dr. Brian Loher, Professor, our Human Resource Management specialist, Dr. Francis Craig, Professor, expert in Mind/Body Health, Dr. Karri Verno, Associate Professor, who specializes in Lifespan Development and Forensic Psychology and Nicolle Mayo, Assistant Professor, expert in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Help our Tioga County neighbors run past cancer!

by Kristine Worthington – October 25, 2016

You have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others here in Tioga County. On Saturday, October 29th, there is a fun filled community event planned in Mansfield. This event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, is an opportunity to raise money and help cancer patients in Tioga County.

Katrina Toth-Penner and her family know first-hand how important the help of the community can be. Katrina is an 11th grade student at North Penn-Mansfield High School. Both Katrina and her brother were diagnosed with cancer and underwent treatments at the same time. Katrina remembers the car trips back and forth to the treatment center, and the financial support that the community generated to help her family with the expenses. She also remembers going to fund raising events and seeing friends and family members. Katrina said, “When you see your friends out there supporting you, or your family out there showing you that they are there for you; that they’ve got your back, it’s really something else.” Katrina and her brother won their fight. She hopes we will join together on October 29th to help other local families who are currently struggling with cancer.

To get involved join us at Smythe Park in Mansfield on October 29th, as we run and walk past cancer. Choose the activity level that is right for you and your family. There is a 1 mile walk/run event and a 5K event. Registration will be open right up to race time, or you can pick up a registration form today. Registration forms for the 5K and the 1 mile fun walk/run can be picked up at Wild Asaph Outfitters at 71 Main Street, in Wellsboro or Oswald Cycle Works at 7 North Main Street, in Mansfield.

Checking-in for the events begins at 8:30AM, on October 29th, at Smythe Park. The 1 mile fun walk/run will begin at 9:30AM and the 5K begins at 10AM. Participants are allowed and encouraged to take part in both events.

The registration fee for the 1 mile walk run is $15 with a maximum fee of $30 for immediate family members. The cost for the 5K run is $25. All of the money raised at this event will go to eradicating cancer and helping patients in Tioga County.

Terry Borneman, an American Cancer Society volunteer, has helped coordinate this healthy community event for two years. In our interview, Terry reminded us, “Cancer is a word not a sentence”. Terry’s family has felt the impact of cancer and he would like to see us “run past cancer”. Terry says, “(This event gives us) a healthy choice of something (we) can do to help us raise funds to eradicate cancer”. Many community members have donated gifts to make this event extra special. Everyone who participates in either of the walk/run events will receive a free small ice cream from Scoops in Wellsboro or in Covington. Top runners in the 5K event will win medals. Also remember, all participants are encouraged to ramp up the fun by wearing costumes. The top costume participants will be awarded prizes. Prizes will be awarded for Best Dressed, Funniest, Scariest, Most Unusual, Cutest, Best Fictional Character, Best Group and Coolest Celebrity.

We can help eradicating cancer and help local families! Katrina, Terry, and all of us here at the Home Page Network encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this healthy, fun community event that will help the fight against cancer. Go to Smythe Park on Saturday October 29th, be healthy, have fun, win prizes, and help Tioga county residents who are running their race against cancer.
For more information about participating in the 5K or 1 Mile Walk/Run or sponsorship, call Terry Borneman at (410) 428-8615 or Jordyn Howe at (607) 857-8076.

Wellsboro football overcomes “trap game” against Wyalusing

by Home Page – October 24, 2016

The Wellsboro Varsity Football scored 33 second half points on their way to a 48-0 shutout over Wyalusing on Saturday, October 22.

The shutout was the Hornets’ sixth of the season, and Wellsboro had outscored their opponents 387-33 through 9 games this season. Wellsboro allowed just 141 total yards of offense on the afternoon (74 passing, 67 rushing).

“The defense continues to do what they’ve done all year,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand after his 37th career win. “The put points on the board today as well. We had less than ideal conditions early on in the game but they held them and didn’t let them (Wyalusing) put the ball in the end zone. They were out on the field a lot, we didn’t have the ball on offense very much, but they did their job once again.”

It took the Hornets a quarter to get started as the Hornets only had one drive in the first quarter, but after a sack by senior Dominic Spencer for a loss of 13 yards, the Hornets got things rolling. A 14 yard punt return started the Hornets at their own 33-yard line as junior Quinn Henry broke two long runs, 21 and 34, to put the Hornets on top 7-0 after senior Jacob Singer’s extra point with 9:07 remaining in the first half.

The Hornet defense held Wyalusing to a three-and-out on their following drive with the help of a block in the back. After a short punt return by Henry, the Hornets turned to junior running back Chase Moser. Moser rushed for 43 yards on the drive, and almost scored on the drive, but as he reached the ball out for the end zone, he fumbled but senior Taylor Baker fell on it in the end zone for the touchdown. Wellsboro decided to go for two, and seniors Brandon Lamphier and Parker Jones connected for the score to put the Hornets up 15-0 with 4:05 remaining before halftime.

Wellsboro put the game away as the second half started as the defense scored an early touchdown. Junior Dalton Prough picked up a Ryan Kipp fumble and returned it 38 yards for the score to make it 22-0 with 9:10 left in the third quarter. Wellsboro only had the one touchdown in the third, but scored four times in the fourth quarter.

“We only had four possessions in the first half and only once in the third quarter,” continued Hildebrand. “Once we had the ball we were able to stay consistent and just drive it down. Our offensive line has been playing great all year and they did again today. We have at least three running backs that can start on separate teams. We have a lot of guys that are doing great things right now.”

Moser made up for his early fumble with an 8 yard run to start the fourth to make it 28-0, then junior Alex Kozuhowski scored from 5 yards out after the Wellsboro defense created another turnover to pus the score to 34-0. Freshman Aidan Hauser made it 41-0 with 3:45 left in the game from 21 yards out and freshman Alex Burrell scored the game’s final touchdown with 32 seconds remaining.

Wellsboro rushed for 395 yards as a team with Henry leading the was with 126 yards on 11 carries. He also threw for 47 yards on 5 completions. Moser carried the ball 13 times for 84 yards, senior Durpee Hosey had 55 yards on 8 touches, and Hauser finished with 50 yards on 3 attempts. Prough led the Hornet receivers with 1 catch for 29 yards.

Defensively junior Brent English led the team with 12 tackles, Spencer had 10 and a sack,and Jones made 8 stops. Moser also had 4 pass deflections on the afternoon.

Up next for Wellsboro is rival North Penn-Mansfield. Wellsboro sports a 9-0 record heading into the Morton F. Jones Trophy game, while North Penn-Mansfield is 8-1. Both teams are undefeated in the NTL Large School Division. The game will take place on Friday, October 28 at Mansfield University’s Karl Van Norman Field.

“To get through this week was huge for us, we have a good thing going and we want to keep it rolling. The rivalry itself motivates the kids. We need another good week of practice.”

HORNETS TROUNCE RED RAIDERS, 62-6
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team rushed for over 350 yards on their way to their 8th straight victory with a 62-6 win against Montgomery for Homecoming on Friday, October 14.
While the Hornets gave up a late touchdown in the fourth quarter, they have only allowed 33 points on the entire season (4.13 per game), and have out-scored their opponents 216-19 in their past 4 games.
“We departmentalize the season and these last two weeks are the start of post-season for us and they’re going to mean a lot”, Hildebrand concluded. “We have to take care of business. The trip to Wyalusing is always rough and we have to focus on just that game a not look ahead to week 10. Next week is a perfect trap game so we have to take care of week 9 before we move ahead to week 10.”
Wellsboro is now 8-0 (8-0 NTL) and will be on the road on Saturday, October 22 against Wyalusing.

DECORATING DECODED – GOING GREEN
As consumers are becoming more aware of environmental issues and how they affect their homes and lifestyles, green or sustainable design is becoming more popular. It has the same emphasis on aesthetics and functionality as traditional design, but it also focuses on the impact that design has on the health and welfare of the environment. Reduce, reuse, recycle is the mantra of the green movement in a society that considers disposability commonplace. How often have you heard yourself, or someone else say, “Nothing is made to last anymore.”

Well, green design is partly about durability; using products that are made to last and do not have to be replaced frequently. It also addresses the issue of energy conservation whether it be the heating and cooling systems we use or the use of more efficient lighting. Green design seeks to improve indoor air quality by reducing toxins from paint and adhesives used in our homes, which could even be beneficial to our health.

TROY EDGES WELLSBORO VOLLEYBALL, 3-2

The Hornets improve their record to 14-4 (11-3 NTL). The team will now await to see who their opponent will be in the District IV Class A playoffs.

The win improves the Lady Hornets’ record to 6-11-1 (6-7-1) to end the season.

Wellsboro soccer finishes regular season on a high note

by Ed Weaver – October 20, 2016

The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team closed out the regular season with a 3-1 win over Sayre on Senior Night on Wednesday, October 19.

“The senior boys have been great,” said head coach John Shaffer. “Their effort in the summer number one. They showed up the last day of school we had our first summer session and then all through the summer twice a week. Their dedication, their commitment to the program is outstanding.”

After a scoreless first half, the Hornets quickly got on the scoreboard to start the second. 21 seconds in, junior Tanner Runyan scored to make it 1-0 after senior Josiah Hill center the ball to him. Hill then added the Hornets’ second goal, his only one of the game, just over 10 minutes later to make it 2-0.

“Tactically we changed a few things, put a few players in couple different spots and maybe maximized their skill set,” Shaffer said about the quick second half start. “We created a lot of quality chances but the quality of finishing was poor. It’s a bit of you get what you practice or in this case how you practice. When the boys made the right choices they were unstoppable.”

Sayre avoided the shutout with a goal with 17:00 remaining on a goal by Sam Wheeler assisted by Jordan Rockwell. The Hornets then added their final goal of the night with 9:19 on the clock as Runyan sent a kick deep into Sayre territory, where sophomore Brett Rudy ran under it, gained control, and made an easy kick for the goal.

Hill now has 40 goals on the year (93 career), a Wellsboro boys soccer record. Runyan now has 12 goals on the season and Rudy is third on the team with 9.

The Hornets outshot Sayre 24-13, had a 10-2 advantage in corner kicks, and senior Casey Hoover made 7 saves on the night for the 115th of the season.

In the JV game, the Hornets won 4-0 behind goals from senior Alex Freeman, sophomores Alan Hazelton and Adam Cornell, and freshman Conrad Becker. The JV Hornets finish their season with a 12-2-2 record under coach Todd Fitch.

The Hornets improve their record to 14-4 (11-3 NTL). The team will now await to see who their opponent will be in the District IV Class A playoffs.

“District IV A is very tough. It looks like right now we’re going to be matched up with Galeton in the first round. We won’t know until Sunday night,” Shaffer concluded. “Playing another NTL team in Districts, I never like it because there is so much familiarity but if we can get by them we’re dealing with last year’s A runner up in East Juniata and last year’s District IV champ in Millville. I think we can compete with them and play our game, but its definitely going to be a real test.”

The Fifth Season

Florio honored for career milestone during Tuesday match

by Ed Weaver – October 20, 2016

The Wellsboro Varsity Volleyball team dropped their second straight match that went to 5 sets to Troy on Tuesday, October 18. Wellsboro lost 3-2 to Towanda in their last match.

The Lady Hornets won the first set 25-20 and lost the second set 25-18. The scores reversed in the third set as Wellsboro won 25-18, but then Troy edged the Lady Hornets 25-23 in the fourth set to force a fifth and final set, which they won 15-11.

Junior Brianne Keane led the Lady Hornets with 35 assists and 10 points, senior Kirsten Florio had 24 kills, 16 digs, and 7 points, and 3 blocks and sister Morgan Florio had 17 digs and 15 points, and junior Cheyenne Sherman had 6 points, 5 kills, and 4 assists.

For Troy, Sam Gentile had 20 kills, Morgan Gentile had 18 kills, Cassie Shedden recorded 37 assists, Hailey Williams made 18 digs, Kerrigan Hoffmann scored 10 points and had 14 digs, and Caitlin Delosa made 10 digs.

In the Lady Hornets’ last match, Kirsten Florio reached a milestone as she surpassed 500 career kills in the loss to Towanda on Thursday, October 13. Florio had 516 career kills coming into the match with Troy, and now sits at 540 for her career.

“It means everything to me,” Florio said. “I’ve worked a lot throughout the whole season and I couldn’t have done it without my team helping me in the back row and with our setters and everyone covering for defense so so it was really a team effort. I couldn’t have done it without them.”

In the JV game the Lady Hornets remained perfect with a 2-0 (25-5, 25-20) to improve to 19-0 under coach Michelle McNett. McNett is now 75-14 (0.843) in her 5 years at Wellsboro.

The loss drops the Lady Hornets’ record to 11-8. The team will be back in action on Thursday, October 20 at North Penn-Liberty.

Go green in your home for more green in your wallet!

by Tabitha Dietrich – October 18, 2016

As consumers are becoming more aware of environmental issues and how they affect their homes and lifestyles, green or sustainable design is becoming more popular. It has the same emphasis on aesthetics and functionality as traditional design, but it also focuses on the impact that design has on the health and welfare of the environment. Reduce, reuse, recycle is the mantra of the green movement in a society that considers disposability commonplace. How often have you heard yourself, or someone else say, “Nothing is made to last anymore.”

Well, green design is partly about durability; using products that are made to last and do not have to be replaced frequently. It also addresses the issue of energy conservation whether it be the heating and cooling systems we use or the use of more efficient lighting. Green design seeks to improve indoor air quality by reducing toxins from paint and adhesives used in our homes, which could even be beneficial to our health.

Incorporating green design into your home does not need to be complicated, as many of you may think. All it takes is a little thought about the products you choose to use.
For instance, if you have decided it’s time to update the wall color in a room, consider using low V.O.C. paint. It will improve the air quality and reduce toxins in your home. V.O.C. stands for volatile organic compounds. In layman’s terms, low V.O.C. means less fumes. I remember as a kid, my mother would not let me sleep in my bedroom whenever it was repainted until it “aired out”.

Many people have become more energy efficient by simply replacing their incandescent light bulbs with CFL’s (compact fluorescent lights) or LED’s (light emitting diodes). As a decorator, I have always preferred the warm glow from incandescent bulbs, but with the new warm white offered from LED’s, and bulbs that last 20 years, even I have embraced their use. I confess, I’m not sold on CFL’s. Although they may burn less energy, they contain mercury. I suggest Googling “How to dispose of CFL’s” and you can make up your own mind whether or not these are a green choice.

Consider using products made from recycled materials. There is a multitude of options from door mats made out of recycled tires to gorgeous tiles made of recycled glass.

Reusing and repurposing are great ways to “go green” as well. Are you replacing your kitchen cabinets? Why not move the old ones to a laundry room, basement or garage for extra storage. Buying a new dining table? Paint the old one with exterior paint to make it weather resistant and you have a stylish new picnic table or cut the legs down and transform it into a new coffee table.

Anything that is still in good shape, whether it be furniture or even a lamp that you are not going to keep, don’t just throw it away. It can be sold to help pay for the item replacing it or give it a new home by donating and get a tax credit to boot.

Turns out my family has been green long before it was in vogue. We just called it being frugal. I bet many of you have been doing the same without even realizing it. Keep it up and you’ll see more green in your wallet.

Time runs out on MU football on Homecoming Loss

by Mansfield University Sports Department

MANSFIELD – Adam Hutchison connected with D.J. McLean with seven seconds remaining to cut the deficit to 19-13 but time ran out on Mansfield as visiting Franklin Pierce came away with the CSFL win on Homecoming at Karl Van Norman Field.

Saturday marked the culmination of Mansfield’s 125th Anniversary of Football Celebration with dozens of Mountaineer football alumni representing all decades back to the 50s returning for the game.

On its opening drive, Franklin Pierce (2-2, 2-2 CSFL) needed just six plays capped by quarterback Mike Mancicni’s 26-yard touchdown run up the middle to take a quick 7-0 lead. On the ensuing possession, Bailee Johns intercepted a Hutchison pass and returned it 22 yards for another score. The extra point was snuffed out, but the Ravens held the early 13-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Hutchison used passes of 18 and 15 yards to Kurt Logan and Jakob Woods respectively before LeRon Strothers rushed 18 yards to put the first Mansfield (0-4, 0-4 CSFL) points on the board and cut the deficit to 13-7. The touchdown was the first of the season and second of his career for Strothers.

The Mountaineer defense stiffened, forcing a pair of three-and-outs and stuffing Franklin Pierce on a fourth-and-two attempt to go into halftime trailing by just six points.

Issaac Havens picked off Mancini on a passes that was tipped then juggled around on the Ravens’ first drive of the second half, but the Mansfield offense stalled. Paul Harrison boomed a 58-yard punt down to the Franklin Pierce 12-yard line to pin the Ravens in their own endzone. It was Harrison’s longest punt of his career and one-of-two 50-yard punts on the day that went inside the opponent 20. Neither offense could get much going in the third quarter as the score remained 13-7.

In the fourth quarter with Franklin Pierce threatening once again in Mountaineer territory, John Capwell came up with his first career interception at the Mansfield 39. Capwell had a monster day, racking up a game-high 14 tackles, including 13 solo, two tackles for loss and a pick.

The Ravens forced a three-and-out and used a 12-play, 48-yard drive capped by a Kobie Smith two-yard touchdown run to extend the lead to 19-7 with just 1:58 left in the game. The two-point conversion was intercepted by Mountaineer defensive back Brandon Pace.

Hutchison marched the Mountaineers down the field, finding his receivers near the sidelines and ended the drive with 14-yard touchdown pass to McLean in coverage to bring Mansfield within six points again with just seven ticks on the clock. The two-point conversion failed.

Mansfield was unable to convert the onside kick and dropped its four CSFL game of the season.

Franklin Pierce outgained Mansfield 267-165 in total offense and held a 19-13 advantage in first downs. The Ravens did their damage on the ground, amassing 232 rushing yards.

Hutchison went 12-32 in passing for 122 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked twice and threw a pick. McLean totaled 56 receiving yards while Kurt Logan added 34.

The Raven’s Tyler Zech ran for 96 yards with Ahzir Turner totaling 62.

Mansfield travels to Navy on Friday.

Wellsboro Football takes win over Montgomery on Homecoming Night

by Ed Weaver – October 17, 2016

The Wellsboro Varsity Football team rushed for over 350 yards on their way to their 8th straight victory with a 62-6 win against Montgomery for Homecoming on Friday, October 14.

While the Hornets gave up a late touchdown in the fourth quarter, they have only allowed 33 points on the entire season (4.13 per game), and have out-scored their opponents 216-19 in their past 4 games.

“We played our football tonight and did what we needed to do to get the win,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand (36-7). “Our defensive continues to play really well. We did some good things on offense, our offensive line did a lot of good things, and we got a lot of guys in the game tonight.”

Wellsboro scored in all three phases of the game, their second straight game they accomplished that feat, as they scored one defensive touchdown, one special teams touchdown, and multiple offensive touchdowns, despite running only running 11 offensive plays in the first half. The Hornets also had a punt return touchdown called back on a roughing penalty.

“It’s great to show that we can get the ball into the end zone in multiple ways,” Hildebrand continued. “The more ways we can do that the more dangerous we are. Those are things we work on every week and it was one of our goals coming into tonight. We’ve been trying to block a punt all year and it’s one of those things we look at getting even better at.”

Wellsboro scored just minutes into the first quarter as junior Dalton Prough intercepted Brayden Strouse’s first pass attempt of the night and returned it 65 yards to the house to put the Hornets up 7-0 early after senior Jacob Singer’s extra point. Wellsboro scored another touchdown in less than 3 minutes after holding Montgomery to a 3-and-out on a 26 yards run by junior Chase Moser to make it 14-0 with 6:06 remaining in the opening quarter.

The score remained 14-0 in favor of the Hornets until 11:08 in the second quarter as Moser broke off another run, this time for 72 yards, to make the score 22-0 after junior Quinn Henry rushed for the two-point conversion. Wellsboro added another quick touchdown, this time after holding Montgomery to 3 plays, on a blocked punt return. Senior Caleb Sinkler recorded the block and senior Brody Coolidge picked the ball up and returned it 28 yards to paydirt to increase Wellsboro’s lead to 29-0.

Wellsboro scored 3 more times to close out the first half. Senior Dupree Hosey flashed his speed on a 68 yard run to make it 36-0, then Henry returned a punt 62 yards to the house to make it 43-0, and Henry added the final score of the half on a 37 yard run to make it 50-0 Hornets at halftime.

With the win secure, Wellsboro’s JV team played the entire second half and scored two touchdowns. The first came on the Hornets’ opening drive of the half. Freshman Aidan Hauser was the workhorse of the drive rushing 6 times for 69 yards, with the last carry being a 40 yard touchdown to make it 56-0 Hornets. Wellsboro’s final touchdown came with 5:52 remaining in the game as junior Brent English punched the ball in from 5 yards out after Coolidge got Wellsboro into scoring position on a 30 yard run.

Montgomery scored their lone touchdown of the night on the following drive. Keith Habersham peeled off a 50 yard run on their first play from scrimmage to get down to the Wellsboro 18-yard line, then Strouse connected with Habersham from 17 yards out on fourth down to make the final score 62-6 for the Hornets’ third Homecoming win in the past 4 years.

Wellsboro only attempted 4 passes on the night with Henry (3 yards) and English (5 yards) both going 1-for-2. Sophomore Isaac Bechtel led the team with 1 catch for 5 yards and senior Parker Jones had the other catch for 3 yards. Moser led all rushers on the night with 109 yards on 4 carries, and now has over 1,000 for his career (1,029), and scored twice. Haused finished with 77 yards on 7 carries, Hosey had 68 yards on his only carry of the night, Henry had 42 yards on 2 carries and a touchdown, and Coolidge added 36 yards on 5 carries.

On the defensive side, Jones led the Hornets with 9 tackles and a sack, for his 155th career tackle and 13th career sack (in two years). Junior Collin Pietropola recorded 8 tackles and recovered a fumble, Hauser made 7 stops, Sinkler had 6 tackles, and Coolidge added 5 tackles to go along with his blocked punt return.

Coming up next for Wellsboro are two tough weeks in Wyalusing and North Penn-Mansfield that will decide the NTL Large School Division.

“We departmentalize the season and these last two weeks are the start of post-season for us and they’re going to mean a lot”, Hildebrand concluded. “We have to take care of business. The trip to Wyalusing is always rough and we have to focus on just that game a not look ahead to week 10. Next week is a perfect trap game so we have to take care of week 9 before we move ahead to week 10.”

Wellsboro is now 8-0 (8-0 NTL) and will be on the road on Friday, October 21 against Wyalusing.

HORNETS DOWN CV, 64-0
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team rolled to their seventh straight win of the season in a 64-0 defeat of Cowanesque Valley on Friday, October 7.

CREATURE CARE – FLEE THE FLEAS
Yes, summer is over and the autumn months are upon us, so lets talk ‘fleas’. The fall months of the year are especially important months for fleas since this is time when all of the millions of flea eggs laid both inside and outside during this past summer are hatching out to infest our dogs, our cats, and our homes.

Fleas are more then just a nuisance as they bite our pets and yes sometimes even us people. These common insect pests also carry and cause disease. Allergic reactions causing hair loss and more serious skin infections start with the saliva of a fleas that bites the animal. Fleas are also responsible for spreading ‘tapeworms’, bacterial infections that can affect the blood, liver, and lungs of our dogs and cats. Deadly diseases like bubonic plague are still a threat thanks to the flea.

EMERGENCY 101 – THE SWIFT911
When a disaster strikes, every second counts. Sudden emergencies such as tornadoes, flash floods, and intense wildfires can unfold so quickly that some people may not even be aware of the danger until it is too late. That is why in Pennsylvania, the Tioga County Commissioners have purchased a new mass notification software program known as Swift911.

Swift911 allows emergency personnel to send critical information to the citizens and visitors of Tioga County, Pennsylvania before, during, and after large-scale emergencies. Additionally, you can sign up for day-to-day notifications such as weather alerts, road closures, and boil water alerts if you choose. It’s completely customizable.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD – APPLE CIDER
It’s fall! Which means leaves are changing and time for fall foods! I’m talking pumpkin… sweet potato…. pears, cranberries, and apples!
The great thing about the bright yellow-orange varieties of squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin, is that they contain beta-carotene, which is a provitamin A carotenoid. Carotenoids act as antioxidants. These are substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. You know what else is especially rich in antioxidants? Apples! Do you know the difference between cider and apple juice? Apple juice is filtered to remove solids and it is pasteurized so stays fresh longer. Because fresh Cider has not been filtered, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator. We have a variety of apples grown, locally. Today we will visit a local, family owned apple cider mill.

CHILDHOOD OBESITY – CONCERNS & SOLUTIONS
On today’s feature, Wellsboro Home Page visits with Dr. Stephen Sasser of the Laurel Health Center in Wellsboro to learn more about the overwhelming research that has confirmed – if your child is obese in adolescence, they are more than likely going to be obese in adulthood. Dr. Sasser will discuss the research and the steps parents can take to maintain a healthy weight for their child.

In fact 12 million kids between the ages of 6 and 11 weigh in overweight for their age group and another 36.5% of adults over tip the scales. In fact, according to a CDC study in 2013, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.

Live 5-2-1-0 EVERY day!

by Home Page Staff – October 14, 2016

On today’s feature, Wellsboro Home Page visits with Dr. Stephen Sasser of the Laurel Health Center in Wellsboro to learn more about the overwhelming research that has confirmed – if your child is obese in adolescence, they are more than likely going to be obese in adulthood. Dr. Sasser will discuss the research and the steps parents can take to maintain a healthy weight for their child.

In fact 12 million kids between the ages of 6 and 11 weigh in overweight for their age group and another 36.5% of adults over tip the scales. In fact, according to a CDC study in 2013, childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.

While it is true that some obesity health concerns are caused by other health problems the three most common factors of obese children are age of onset, severity, and parental obesity.

When talking with his patients, Dr. Sasser likes to start with the basics and one tool that he uses is 5210 which has been brought forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics. (The list is included in the poster below) He also has an eight week family plan he incorporates which teaches healthy habits and healthy living taken from the book by Dr. Walt Larimore called “Super Sized Kids.” Both of these resources help to support the children and their families during this time of healthy changes. Of course Dr. Sasser says, “it’s work, it just won’t happen, you have to make changes and we do not like change as human beings, it takes work, but those habits all come together to influence our weight and how healthy we are.”

5210

As Doctor Sasser reminds us, there is not only hope for a child’s life to change, there are resources to help them succeed! For more information please contact your local Laurel Health Center or visit the Laurel Health Centers website here.

Be alerted by Tioga County Emergency Services with their notification system

by Benton Best – October 12, 2016

When a disaster strikes, every second counts. Sudden emergencies such as tornadoes, flash floods, and intense wildfires can unfold so quickly that some people may not even be aware of the danger until it is too late. That is why in Pennsylvania, the Tioga County Commissioners have purchased a new mass notification software program known as Swift911.

Swift911 allows emergency personnel to send critical information to the citizens and visitors of Tioga County, Pennsylvania before, during, and after large-scale emergencies. Additionally, you can sign up for day-to-day notifications such as weather alerts, road closures, and boil water alerts if you choose. It’s completely customizable.

The system only works if you sign up, so each individual user will need to go to the web portal or mobile app, create a basic profile, and then select the types of alerts you would like to receive. It’s very flexible and very secure. Your information is not released to the public and will not be used for anything other than sending emergency alert notifications.
When you sign up, you can decide if you want to receive alerts via landline telephone, wireless telephone, mobile app over Wi-Fi connection, email, text message, and even on your newsfeed via the County’s social media accounts. Or all of the above!

On a computer, you can sign up by going to our website and clicking on the blue “Swift911 Sign-Up” link at the top of the page. If you have a smartphone, you can simply go to the Google Play Store for Android devices or the App Store for Apple devices and type in Swift911. Select the blue or public version and begin signing up. If you only have a landline and are unable to sign up using a computer, you can simply call the Tioga County Department of Emergency Services at 570-724-9110 and we can manually add you to the system.

Once you’ve logged into the system, click on “My Information” and a Contact Information page comes up. Then you can add a photo of yourself, which can be useful in the event of a missing person, add your language preference, so that alerts will automatically translate into your primary language. Finally, enter in the addresses for which you would like to be alerted and any associated contact information. Please be sure to put in your correct addresses as they system uses “geo-location” in order to send out alerts. Correct addresses are critical. Also, please remember this is all information that will only be used by emergency personnel, during an emergency.

If you or a loved one who lives in Tioga County have any functional needs such as the need for supplemental oxygen, the need for assistance walking, or any mental or behavioral health issues, the Swift911 program has a place for you to enter that information in. It’s all controlled by you and all securely stored, but can be used by emergency personnel in the event of a large-scale emergency.
To provide information about functional needs, simply go to your profile either through the web portal link on our website or on your mobile app. Click on “My Information” and then the “Functional Access Needs” section. This will open a drop down menu with several yes or no questions as well as a few questions with the option to write in an answer. Simply answer all of the questions to the best of your ability and click “Apply.”

Additionally, the system allows for you to enter in information about the utility providers which service your residence. This is important because it will help the County Emergency Management Agency make notifications to individuals who might be without power for a longer period of time, or might be affected by an internet outage.

In order to decide what types of alerts you would like to receive, click on “Subscriptions” to see a complete list of all the different types of alerts you can receive on a day-to-day basis if you choose. It is recommended that EVERYONE sign up for the “Countywide Alerts (Default)” subscription list, however there are many other options as well. Each of the 39 individual municipalities in Tioga County have their own list. If you work in one municipality but live in another, you may consider signing up for both in order to receive those alerts. Finally, if you have a participating local water authority, you can subscribe to alerts from them as well. Regardless of which subscription lists you sign up for, large-scale alerts regarding life threatening dangers can be sent to all users of the system.

We would like to thank the Tioga County Commissioners for their willingness to continue improving public safety in our beautiful county. With this system, there is an opportunity to alert the people who work in, residents who live in, and travelers who visit Tioga County before, during, and after an emergency, and help protect lives and property. All people need to do now is sign up!
