Meet former PA Future Business Leaders of America state president, Sarah Hohman

by Kristine Worthington – June 1, 2017

Sarah Hohman tapped into a powerful opportunity when she joined a Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter at her school. From Sarah’s story, we learned the benefits that students can gain from participation in FBLA. Students may have heard of FBLA in their school, but perhaps they didn’t realize they were missing out on a fun, team spirited, and competitive program. This program motivates students by awarding achievement and providing tools for future success.

As a young middle level student, Sarah knew she wanted to make a difference. She was lucky enough to find an avenue to fulfill that desire. Through FBLA’s competitive events, students like Sarah apply classroom learning to work situations. There are a variety of career categories at an FBLA event. A few of the career categories include: agriculture, communications, finance, and government. Participation in FBLA events unlocked Sarah’s potential as a leader. The skills and confidence she gained motivated Sarah to run for the position of FBLA State President. Sarah was successful and she held the position of FBLA State President for a year.

From her experiences in FBLA, Sarah was inspired to initiate the program, Build Your Legacy. This was a program for middle level students at North Penn-Mansfield High school. Sarah was pivotal in bringing together student, faculty, and community resources to allowed 7th and 8th grade students to create a product or service. She hopes programs like this will continue to inspire entrepreneurship in middle level students.

If you know a middle or high school student who wants to gain important job skills, make a difference in their community, or needs an outlet to find their passion, invite them to explore FBLA. Visit FBLA at their website http://www.pafbla.org/welcome.php

The Fifth Season

Power up and move together with energy from healthy snacks!

by Heather Weiner – May 31, 2017

In today’s episode of Movin’ Together, Home Page correspondent Sara Vogt, along with her daughters, Johanna and Julianna, as well as Home Page staff members Lauren Gooch and Erin O’Shea, venture down the beautiful Pine Creek Rail-Trail to do some exploring with Linda Stager.

Linda, a native of Tioga County, is now retired after working for forty years in the social services field. She is also the author of the 2015 book, The Pine Creek Rail-Trail Guidebook.
Her inspiration to write about the scenic views and wildlife along the 62 miles of the Pine Creek Trail came about as she tackled a personal goal she had set for herself after retirement – to lose weight. It seemed a logical choice to begin that journey on the smooth and relatively flat former rail bed where so many outdoor enthusiasts come to hike, walk and bike; or take to the water to canoe or kayak.

Linda’s perseverance led to a life-changing transformation. Not only did she lose a significant amount of weight on her quest, but she also fell in love with the natural beauty and peacefulness of the Pine Creek gorge.

Today’s adventure will take Linda and her companions along a section of the Pine Creek Rail-Trail to the small town of Cedar Run, and they will stop at some special landmarks along the way—the first of which is Rattlesnake Rock, just off the trail.


Photo credit: Linda Stager

Linda summarizes the story of how Rattlesnake Rock was named as it was described in a book written by Philip Tome, originally published in 1854. Philip Tome (1782 – 1855), a renowned writer, hunter, adventurer and early settler in north-central Pennsylvania, recounts the story in his book Thirty Years a Hunter.

The story is of two men who, in 1794, were paddling up Pine Creek in a canoe scouting for elk and for native tribes. When they arrived at the location of the rock, there were so many rattlesnakes that they were afraid to stay on shore and instead anchored the canoe in the creek and were compelled to build a smudge pot fire to keep the insects and the snakes away. Based on the story, Philip Tome named the place Rattlesnake Rock.

These days there are far fewer snakes in the area, although they may occasionally be spotted sunning themselves, and Rattlesnake Rock is great place to stop and spend some time.

Linda invites the group to venture out to Rattlesnake Rock with her, “We’ll just keep an eye and an ear out and we’ll be fine!”

While hesitant at first, even Sara overcomes her trepidation, and with a bit of coaxing, enjoys the experience.

Later, when they meet up with Chad Lauer, Northcentral Region Waterways Conservation Officer for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, one of the safety concerns that he addresses is the presence of rattlesnakes in the area. “It’s great to take a picture,” he notes, “But whenever you are in their environment and you are on the rail trail . . . and you encounter a timber rattlesnake, just be cognizant—they are very docile if left alone, but if you do intimidate them . . . they may become aggressive.”

While the group did not have the opportunity to see one of these beautiful and naturally docile creatures on their current excursion, they are prepared for a future encounter and know that it is best to stay on the trail!

Next, they pass the bridge that appears in a photograph on the cover of her Guidebook. She recalls the moment that she took the picture and its significance, “I stood right over there and just shot this picture back at this bridge because it is such a magnificent railroad bridge, and it really speaks to all of us of the history of the rail trail. We think about the trail being a nice recreational path, and it is fun to walk and it is fun to ride. But the truth of it is: this was a railroad.” Linda explains that she added the image of the train to the photograph to give homage to the legacy of the trail.

For more information on the Pine Creek rail trail you may also purchase a copy of Linda’s book, which covers the entire sixty-two miles of the trail. Her books are available on her Facebook page The Pine Creek Rail-Trail Guidebook, through Amazon, and at several area business locations in Wellsboro such as the Penn Wells Hotel.

And to stock up on healthy snacks for your next adventure, visit Peggy’s Candies and Gifts in Wellsboro where you will find a creative selection of organic dark chocolate (an antioxidant-rich superfood) and gluten free goodnessKNOWS snack squares (full of fruit and nuts). Peggy’s also carries a brand of squeezables, full of fruits and vegetables such as carrots and kale—another easy way to get nutrients on the go.

For more safety tips on your next visit to the rail trail, you can download the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s FishBoatPA mobile app.

Next time on Movin’ Together, we’ll discuss hair and skin protection during the summer months. Thanks for joining us here on the Home Page Network.

A joyful heart is good medicine.
Proverbs 17:22

Always at the forefront of Movin’ Together is an emphasis on encouraging each other in a lighthearted way to be healthier. Numerous studies show that laughter helps to decrease stress, improve immune function and even reduce our response to pain. Laughter is sometimes called “inner jogging” because it releases the same hormones as movement.

Lyme Disease bill passes House

by Office of Rep. Matt Baker – May 30, 2017

HARRISBURG – Earlier this week, Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) had two legislative proposals move forward in the legislative process and draw added attention to the increased prevalence of the disease in our state.

“Over the course of the past six years, Pennsylvania has ranked highest in the country among states in the number of confirmed cases of Lyme disease,” said Baker. “In 2016, Pennsylvania reported 12,200 cases of Lyme disease, which is a significant increase from the prior year at 10,817 cases. Further, a 2015 Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection study confirmed a high risk of Lyme disease in every county of the Commonwealth.”

To raise awareness of the disease, Baker authored a House resolution that passed the House of Representatives designating May 2017 as “Lyme Disease Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted primarily by ticks and is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, such as Babesiosis, Bartonellosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichiosis and others, pose a serious threat to the quality of life of many Pennsylvanians, with the frequency of diagnosed and reported Lyme disease cases increasing dramatically over the past several years.

“Lyme disease is a growing concern and growing health care issue here in Pennsylvania,” said Baker. “We clearly need to do more to help address this issue, especially when it comes to individuals whoare trying to get insurers to cover their recommended treatment.”

As chairman of the House Health Committee, Baker drafted House Bill 174, which the committee unanimously passed, that would require health insurers to cover treatment plans for Lyme disease or related tick-borne illnesses as prescribed by a patient’s health care practitioner, regardless if the treatment plan includes short-term or long-term antibiotic treatment.

UPDATE:

“My legislation recently passed the Pa. House of Representatives and would be a major win for those coping with Lyme disease and I am hopeful it will be presented to the full Senate for consideration in the very near future,” said Baker. “We are already hearing that this year will be one of the worst years for ticks in the state, so the time to act is now.”

For more information on Lyme disease, go to www.health.pa.gov and click on “Lyme Disease” under Hot Topics.

All gave some, some gave all

by John Vogt – May 30 ,2017

Today on The Home Page Network we reflect on Memorial Day as we highlight the ceremony that took place in Wellsboro, PA, yesterday May 29th. This gathering represents thousands of services and ceremonies that took place throughout our nation as we said, thank you, and remembered those who have paid the ultimate price.

First, we gathered on The Green in Wellsboro where Home Page had the opportunity to talk with several people participating in this moving event. Veteran, Tony Straniere said that he was present to honor those who were not able to be here because of the ultimate sacrifice. Scout Master Bill Colton shared about the special responsibilities that the Scouts had during the ceremony. Bonnie Rogers expressed the importance of teaching our children about our flag and what this day truly represents. And Bob Blair talked with us about one of his fondness memories. Bob has spent countless hours with his camera capturing endearing moments in our community.

Then we marched down Main Street to the cemetery where Master of Ceremonies Capt. Frank Yungwirth opened the event. Chaplain James Truax presented both the opening and closing prayers. We watched with gratefulness as the riderless horse crossed before us. We saluted the POW/MIA flag. Wellsboro Boy Scouts raised the American flag in honor and respect for those who have fallen. And, the Wellsboro High School band touched our hearts with a musical tribute.

Our featured speaker this year was Lt. Col. Joe Rawson who presented a heartfelt and powerful message in honor of those who have given their all. Lt. Col. Rawson said that those we honor came from all walks of life and all shared fundamental qualities that make our nation great. He said that they embodied courage, pride, determination, selfless, dedication to duty, and great personal integrity.

Col. Eldon Cummings spoke to us about the history of the holiday which was followed by a solemn moment where we all paid special honor and respect to our Gold Star families.

In closing Home Page anchor Johanna Renee Vogt closed the broadcast with the most important thank you of all. Johanna thanked God our heavenly Father for sending his son to die in the ultimate battle of good over evil winning for us the greatest victory of all – forgiveness of our sins and eternal life through Jesus Christ.

We hope that you will take a few moments to watch today’s broadcast and always be grateful for those who have given their lives in service to these United States of America.

Meet some of the amazing participants in this year’s Special Olympics!

by Amiee Jones – May 29, 2017

Saturday marked another Track and Field Day for Tioga County’s Special Olympics. This annual event has become a beloved tradition for communities across the county, and as usual, the track at Mansfield University was full of athletes and volunteers. Excitement, camaraderie, and the buzz of competition filled the area as participants and volunteers made their way from one event to the next.

Some of the events included: wheelchair races, walks, runs at various distances, softball throws, and long jumps. Collin Barrett shared that his favorite activities were the various walking events he had completed, while Sierra Root enjoyed her first place ribbon in the Run/Jump. When asked how fast he is, Michael Morgan replied, “Oh yea, I run 100 miles per hour.” So, the first place ribbon around his neck was no surprise!

Student volunteers Katrina Toth and Nick Capser explained the role of a volunteer during Track and Field Day. “Pretty much we’re just their buddy for the day. We help them to their events. We cheer them along.” (Toth) “Just seeing all of the participants’ expressions, I love it. It makes me feel good at the end of the day. They’re happy. Makes me happy.” (Casper)

Tioga County’s chapter of the Special Olympics provided another fantastic Track and Field Event this year! It was a wonderful day of fun and friendship. The Special Olympics is certainly a valuable resource for our area.

Jason returns with encouragement & black bean burgers & sweet potato fries

by Jason Wilson – May 29, 2017

On today’s episode of Cooking with Dad, Jason talks of how being vulnerable is a key step to reaching our destiny while making a delicious veggie meal.

2 Corinthians 12:9 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Ingredients
1. 2 15.5oz cans of seasoned black beans, drained and mashed with a potato masher
2. 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs.
3. 3/4 of an onion grated
4. 1 teaspoon of chili power
5. 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
6. 1 egg.
7. A sprinkle of sea salt
8. Olive oil, for oiling grill pan.
9. 1 tablespoon of butter
10. 2 to 4 Kaiser/hamburger rolls.
11. 1 to 2 medium size sweet potatoes cut into shoestring size sweet potato fries
12. 2 ½ cups of vegetable oil

Drain, but do not rinse, the black beans. Place them in a bowl and use the potato masher to mash them. Keep mashing until they’re mostly broken up, but still have some whole beans visible. Add the breadcrumbs, onion, egg, chili powder, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until everything is combined, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. 

Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil with an equal amount of butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Form the bean mixture into patties slightly larger than the buns you’re using (the patties will not shrink when they cook.) Place the patties in the skillet and cook them about 5 minutes on the first side. Flip them to the other side.

In a medium size sauce pan, you want to heat your 2 ½ cups of vegetable oil for your sweet potato fries. I generally lightly salt them before going in the oil, in which you put them in the oil until they have a golden brown consistency to them and they are ready to come out.

After your black bean burgers are done and your fries are cooked well. You can plate them. You don’t have to use kaiser or hamburger rolls, you can also use pita or not use any type of roll at all.
Enjoy.

Jason returns with encouragement & black bean burgers & sweet potato fries

by Jason Wilson – May 29, 2017

On today’s episode of Cooking with Dad, Jason talks of how being vulnerable is a key step to reaching our destiny while making a delicious veggie meal.

2 Corinthians 12:9 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Ingredients
1. 2 15.5oz cans of seasoned black beans, drained and mashed with a potato masher
2. 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs.
3. 3/4 of an onion grated
4. 1 teaspoon of chili power
5. 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
6. 1 egg.
7. A sprinkle of sea salt
8. Olive oil, for oiling grill pan.
9. 1 tablespoon of butter
10. 2 to 4 Kaiser/hamburger rolls.
11. 1 to 2 medium size sweet potatoes cut into shoestring size sweet potato fries
12. 2 ½ cups of vegetable oil

Drain, but do not rinse, the black beans. Place them in a bowl and use the potato masher to mash them. Keep mashing until they’re mostly broken up, but still have some whole beans visible. Add the breadcrumbs, onion, egg, chili powder, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until everything is combined, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. 

Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil with an equal amount of butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Form the bean mixture into patties slightly larger than the buns you’re using (the patties will not shrink when they cook.) Place the patties in the skillet and cook them about 5 minutes on the first side. Flip them to the other side.

In a medium size sauce pan, you want to heat your 2 ½ cups of vegetable oil for your sweet potato fries. I generally lightly salt them before going in the oil, in which you put them in the oil until they have a golden brown consistency to them and they are ready to come out.

After your black bean burgers are done and your fries are cooked well. You can plate them. You don’t have to use kaiser or hamburger rolls, you can also use pita or not use any type of roll at all.
Enjoy.

Wellsboro knocks off Williamson, 6-3

by Ed Weaver – May 26, 2017

The Wellsboro Varsity Baseball team advanced to their first District IV championship game since 2010 with a 6-3 win over Williamson on Thursday, May 25.

Also with the win, the Hornets qualified for their first-ever appearance in the PIAA State playoffs.

“It’s a relief. We told the team in the beginning of the year if we get to 0.500 we’re the team you don’t want to play,” said head coach Philip Prough. “We had a terrifically hard schedule, we knew that going into it. We’re battle tested and my hat’s off to this group of kids. As a team, collectively, they’ve a lot of little things to get better. They put us in this position, this is their team, not mine.”

Wellsboro jumped out to an early lead with three runs in the first. Junior Dalton Prough led off with an infield hit and beat out the throw to first. Sophomore Cam Tennis followed with a bunt and beat out the throw to put two runners on. A sacrifice bunt by freshman Billy Lechler advanced the runners and Prough scored in the next at bat as freshman Carson Davis doubled to left field.

The Hornets’ final two runs of the first came with the bases loaded with junior Johnny Rowland at the plate. Rowland singled to right field to score both Tennis and Davis to make it 3-0. The Hornets tried to add more runs as sophomore Taynton Repard walked to load the bases again, but back-to-back ground outs ended the inning.

Wellsboro maintained their 3-0 lead and added another run in the top of the third. Davis singled up the middle to start the inning, then back-to-back bunt singles by junior Brent English and Rowland loaded the bases. With Repard at bat, a wild pitch from Williamson’s Chase Austin gave the green light for Davis to steal home. Davis beat the tag at the plate, making the score 4-0.

Williamson, however, cut the Hornets’ lead in half in the bottom half of the inning. A single to shallow center field by Hunter Sackett and walks by Brock Sackett and Austin loaded the bases for Brandon Enck. Enck capitalized with a single to left field to score Sackett and Sackett.

Wellsboro tried to add to their lead in the top of the fifth. Rowland led off the inning with a double and a sacrific bunt by Repard moved Rowland to third. Junior Parker Mann singled to shallow center field in the next at bat and Rowland tried to score, but was thrown out at home plate.

Wellsboro would get that run back, and add another, in the top of the sixth. Prough drew a walk to start the inning, and after stealing second, a Tennis single moved Prough to third. Prough initially was held on the bag, but Williamson failed to get the ball back to the infield fast enough, allowing Prough to score to put the Hornets up 5-2. A Lechler line drive to right field moved Tennis to third, and Tennis tried to score in the next at bat as Davis grounded into a fielder’s choice, but was tagged out at home. With junior Brandon Plume on to run for Lechler and freshman Lucas Citrino on for Davis, Austin made a move to check Citrino at first, but the ball got away from Enck allowing Plume to score, making it 6-2.

With Davis on in relief for Rowland to start the bottom of the sixth, Williamson attempted to make a comeback. Enck led off with an infield hit, Tyler Anderson walked, and Colin Heilbrun hit a bunted and beat the throw to first to load the bases. Davis hit Dawson Hackett in the next at bat to score Enck to make it 6-3. The Warriors’ half of the inning ended as Hunter Sackett grounded into a double play.

The Hornets went down in order in the top of the seventh giving Williamson one final chance in the bottom of the seventh. Rowland recorded the first out the inning on a nice diving catch in shallow center robbing Brock Sackett of a base hit, but a base hit by Jared Stermer and a walk by Enck but two runners on. Davis then loaded the bases by hitting Anderson with a pitch. Lechler came on in relief for Davis and got Heilbrun to ground out to Repard to end the game one at bat later.

“Our boys have slowly built up to this,” continued Prough. “The first half of the year was really finding out where we need the pieces to be, the second half has been fine-tuning that. My hat’s off to them. They’ve worked hard. They deserve it. This is a good team.”

Rowland was 3-for-4 with a double while Davis, Tennis, and Lechler each went 2-for-4 with Davis adding a double. Mann, English, and Prough added the rounded out the rest of Wellsboro’s 12 hits on the night.

Rowland scattered 4 hits in 5 innings of work to pick up the win, his 8th of the season, and struck out 5 while allowing 2 runs. Davis went 1 2/3 innings allowing a run on one hit with 2 walks and a strikeout, and Lechler threw 1/3 of an inning.

Next up for the Hornets is a date with South Williamsport on Tuesday, May 30 at Medlar Field on the campus of Penn State University in State College, PA. First pitch is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.

Community means the world to Citizens & Northern Bank

by Citizens & Northern Bank – May 26, 2017

What comes to mind when you hear the word “community?” Perhaps you think of your next-door neighbor or the acquaintance down the street. Maybe you consider your local church or non-profit organizations that rely heavily on the goodwill of others. “Community” means so many things to so many people. And it means the world to Citizens & Northern Bank.

C&N has always believed that the economic vitality of our local communities is the lifeblood of our institution. That’s why we continue to stay deeply involved with our communities, providing support in many different ways. So much so, that we created a brand new program in March 2015 to take this commitment to a whole new level. We call it “Giving Back, Giving Together,” and it’s done just that and more.

Our team members are kind, generous, good-hearted people and they were just itching to do something miraculous for their communities! So we developed Giving Back, Giving Together to bring focus to our internal charitable efforts and make a substantial impact to one important cause. For its first year, we decided to address the problem of food insecurity in our area, named our program “Giving Back, Giving Together,” and things took off from there….

To start, we developed an internal contest and our 300+ team members were assigned to teams, each of which had a designated food pantry/bank that they supported throughout the year. At year-end, the winners of each bracket in the contest were awarded a catered lunch delivered by our CEO. Teams raised money in three ways:
1. Making & collecting donations
2. Volunteering at a food pantry of their choice
3. Hosting quarterly, week-long food drives

C&N also committed to donating $1 to the cause for every “like” or “share” associated with Giving Back, Giving Together on our Facebook page.

Our teams embraced the campaign with passion and a purpose! The generosity of our customers, clients and neighbors also became quickly evident as they also contributed to the cause. By the end of 2016, we have raised $110,000 in donations for food pantries and emergency services volunteers and C&N team members have volunteered on over 260 occasions. Best of all, it all stays local and was generated from the good hearts of our team members, customers and neighbors.

Giving Back, Giving Together has kept up the momentum through this year as well. For 2017, we’re committed to raising $60,000 in support of 18 local organizations that have made it their mission to help underprivileged children in our area. The goal is to make a difference and provide funding for these organizations to afford the supplies and programming they need to fulfill their missions. There are so many kids in our communities who deserve a chance at living a good, fulfilling life and Giving Back, Giving Together can help make that dream a reality for them.

Feeling inspired? You can help in our quest to provide support for these kids too!

So now what comes to mind when you hear the word “community?” We want you to think of Giving Back, Giving Together and Citizens & Northern Bank, where this community is as important to us as it is to you.

Wellsboro’s all-time leading scorer to play Division III soccer

[VIDEO EMBED CODE]

by Ed Weaver – May 25, 2017

Wellsboro senior Josiah Hill announced on Tuesday, May 23 that he will continue his soccer career in the fall at Division III Penn State-Altoona.

Hill, a two-time PSCA All-State selection, and the Hornets’ all-time leading goal scorer, is looking forward to the opportunity to get back on the field while majoring in accounting.

“I’m really excited to be playing, I’ve loved soccer since I was five years old so to be able to get the chance to play in college is definitely a special opportunity.”

Hill tore up the NTL the past two seasons. After scoring 11 goals as a sophomore, he shattered the boys’ soccer program’s school record for goals in a season. The old record stood at 23. Hill scored 38 as a junior. Then as a senior, he broke his old school record with 41 goals en route to 94 career goals.

One of the factors leading Hill to Penn State-Altoona was the coaching staff and their interest level in him.

“The coach said I could potentially play a lot next year and that ultimately helped me decide.”

Wellsboro head coach John Shaffer is also very excited and proud of Hill continuing his career.

“I’m very proud of Josiah. He’s worked very hard over his four years and he’s done amazing things and deserves to play at the next level,” said Shaffer. “He’s been a major part of the program scoring almost a 100 goals in his career, but also the example he sets and just everything he brings to the program has been a really positive influence and we’re really going to miss him.”

Hill knows that he can compete on the collegiate level, thanks mainly to Coach Shaffer.

“It’s helped a lot that Coach Shaffer played college soccer. He keeps pushing me forward and gets me ready for the next level in everything he does. He doesn’t want me to be as good as I am now, he wants me to keep getting better and push forward.”

Grill fires are more dangerous than you may think – play it safe!

by Benton Best – May 25, 2017

We all love a good cookout! Events like these bring families and communities together in nice weather to enjoy fun, laughter, and food. But sometimes these events can take a tragic turn.

According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), food grill fires result in an estimated average of 10 deaths, 100 injuries, and $37 million in property loss each year. In fact, from 2006 to 2008, an estimated 5,700 grill fires on residential properties occurred annually in the United States and more than one quarter of home fires are started by outdoor grills (National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Today, Benton Best explains some simple steps you can take to avoid becoming one of these statistics, and hopefully prevent your loved ones from injury or death due to a grill fire.

First, it’s important to know the basics of grill danger areas and what the hazards are. Of course, the fuel source is one of the biggest threats and one of the most common fuel sources is the standard liquid propane gas.
A basic tank is simply filled with propane liquid using a special machine that forces the propane into the tank under pressure, and it stays pressurized inside the tank until the valve is released. When the valve is switched open, the gas turns to vapor and escapes through the opening. The vapor is highly flammable and extremely dangerous if not taken seriously.

Before use each time, check the fuel tank for dents, damage, rust, or leaks. If you find any issues, make sure to take it out of service, and only use it again once it has been properly serviced and cleared by a technician.

Next, look at the tubing and all connections between the tank and the grill itself. This can be done by applying a small amount of soapy water and turning the gas on. Listening for the sound of gas escaping and look for popping bubbles as an indication of a gas leak. If you see or hear a leak, turn the gas off, tighten the connections and try again. If you are still unable to correct the problem, take the grill out of service until it can be repaired (National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)). Do not ever use matches or lighters to look for leaks.

Also, it’s important to check the inside of the grill and the grill surface. Lift the cover and look for holes, gaps, debris, and animal nests. Check the grill plates themselves to ensure that they are free of left over grease, charcoal, or other combustible products. Remember, other than food, anything that can burn should be removed from the grill area. This includes from inside the grill itself.

Finally, whenever it is unattended or not in use, it’s important that all burner controls and cylinder valves of the grill and fuel tank be in the closed position. 49% of grill fire-related deaths occur due to grill fires that started when the grill was left unattended.

It’s important to remember that a grill should always be placed outside and away from a structure, regardless of the fuel source. It is important that the area be properly ventilated to prevent you or your friends and family from getting sick from carbon monoxide poisoning or other issues related to the products of combustion.

Also, if a grill fire becomes uncontrollable, having it next to a structure dramatically increases the chances of a structure fire. For example, the plastic siding on a house can be extremely flammable if a grill fire occurs near it. Also, anything on fire that falls out of a grill onto a wooden deck can easily catch the deck on fire, followed by the house it’s attached to. Finally, grilling with a porch roof or anything above you is also dangerous as heat and flames go up.
Next, it’s important to never fill a closed lid with gas before lighting it. This can create a dangerous flash fire or fireball which can quickly cause bodily harm and potentially catch other things on fire. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for properly lighting your grill.

It’s also important to always wear appropriate clothing when grilling. Although it may be convenient to grill shirtless or in shorts and sandals, this puts your safety at risk of serious burns and deformities. A bathing suit is NOT proper grilling gear.

Finally, it’s important to always to have a backup plan ready in case there is a fire. Have baking soda on hand for any small grease fires, and have a working fire extinguisher nearby in case the fire gets out of control.

If a small fire does occur and it is safe to do so, apply an extinguishing agent, close the lid of the grill, and immediately turn off or disconnect the fuel source. When in doubt, call 911 and get the professionals on the way to assist you in preventing the loss of life or property.

Grills can be extremely dangerous, but they don’t have to be. Don’t take risks, keep yourself and your loved ones safe when using a grill. Choose to be safe. Hopefully we’ve given you some good tips how.

Grill fires are more dangerous than you may think – play it safe!

by Benton Best – May 25, 2017

We all love a good cookout! Events like these bring families and communities together in nice weather to enjoy fun, laughter, and food. But sometimes these events can take a tragic turn.

According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), food grill fires result in an estimated average of 10 deaths, 100 injuries, and $37 million in property loss each year. In fact, from 2006 to 2008, an estimated 5,700 grill fires on residential properties occurred annually in the United States and more than one quarter of home fires are started by outdoor grills (National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Today, Benton Best explains some simple steps you can take to avoid becoming one of these statistics, and hopefully prevent your loved ones from injury or death due to a grill fire.

First, it’s important to know the basics of grill danger areas and what the hazards are. Of course, the fuel source is one of the biggest threats and one of the most common fuel sources is the standard liquid propane gas.
A basic tank is simply filled with propane liquid using a special machine that forces the propane into the tank under pressure, and it stays pressurized inside the tank until the valve is released. When the valve is switched open, the gas turns to vapor and escapes through the opening. The vapor is highly flammable and extremely dangerous if not taken seriously.

Before use each time, check the fuel tank for dents, damage, rust, or leaks. If you find any issues, make sure to take it out of service, and only use it again once it has been properly serviced and cleared by a technician.

Next, look at the tubing and all connections between the tank and the grill itself. This can be done by applying a small amount of soapy water and turning the gas on. Listening for the sound of gas escaping and look for popping bubbles as an indication of a gas leak. If you see or hear a leak, turn the gas off, tighten the connections and try again. If you are still unable to correct the problem, take the grill out of service until it can be repaired (National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)). Do not ever use matches or lighters to look for leaks.

Also, it’s important to check the inside of the grill and the grill surface. Lift the cover and look for holes, gaps, debris, and animal nests. Check the grill plates themselves to ensure that they are free of left over grease, charcoal, or other combustible products. Remember, other than food, anything that can burn should be removed from the grill area. This includes from inside the grill itself.

Finally, whenever it is unattended or not in use, it’s important that all burner controls and cylinder valves of the grill and fuel tank be in the closed position. 49% of grill fire-related deaths occur due to grill fires that started when the grill was left unattended.

It’s important to remember that a grill should always be placed outside and away from a structure, regardless of the fuel source. It is important that the area be properly ventilated to prevent you or your friends and family from getting sick from carbon monoxide poisoning or other issues related to the products of combustion.

Also, if a grill fire becomes uncontrollable, having it next to a structure dramatically increases the chances of a structure fire. For example, the plastic siding on a house can be extremely flammable if a grill fire occurs near it. Also, anything on fire that falls out of a grill onto a wooden deck can easily catch the deck on fire, followed by the house it’s attached to. Finally, grilling with a porch roof or anything above you is also dangerous as heat and flames go up.

The Fifth Season

Highlights from NP-Mansfield baseball, NP-Liberty softball & Wellsboro softball

by Ed Weaver – May 24, 2017

North Penn-Mansfield, North Penn-Liberty, and Wellsboro were all in action in District IV Class AAA baseball and softball playoffs on Tuesday, May 23.

Danville 8, North Penn-Mansfield 3

A year after winning Districts in Class AA, the Tigers’ season came to an end Tuesday. Danville scored a run each in the second and third innings to take an early 2-0 lead, but Mansfield cut it to 2-1 in the bottom of the third. With JP Shaw at bat, Kipp Hillson was thrown out trying to steal second and in the process, Dylan Wesneski stole home to cut the lead to 2-1.

The Ironmen added three more runs in the top of the fifth to lead 5-1, but again the Tigers closed to within two runs. Wesneski reached base, Hillson scored him in the next at bat, then scored as Brendan Hill grounded into a fielder’s choice leaving the Tigers trailing 5-3.

Mansfield couldn’t dig themselves out of that hole as Danville added three more runs over the final two innings.

Hillson had two hits and scored a run, Shaw had 2 hits, and Joel Whitteker added a hit. Wesneski scored two runs for the Tigers.

North Penn-Mansfield ends their season at 15-5 (12-3 NTL Large School Division).

North Penn-Liberty 14, Loyalsock 9

A seven-run fourth inning powered the Lady Mounties past the Lancers.

Liberty trailed 2-0 after the top of the first, but a Savanah Doney double scored Brooke Harvey to cut the score to 2-1. Liberty scored three runs in the second, but put the game away in the fourth. Carmen Bates sent a shot to the outfield to score Emily Strange, Jillian Berguson, and Mariah Kshir to start the fourth. Later, Bates, Harvey, Doney, and Mackenzie Heater scored.

Loyalsock battled back to cut the score to 13-9, but the Lady Mounties added their final run in the bottom of the sixth on a Kshir sac fly to center to score Strange to advance the Lady Mounties into second round of playoffs for just the second time in program history.

Doney was 4-for-4 with three doubles, Harvey had three hits, and Bates, Heater, and Abby Heatley added hits. Doney also picked up the win on the mound.

Wellsboro 4, Bloomsburg 0

The Lady Hornets advanced to the District IV semi-finals as they shutout Bloomsburg.

Cathryn Brought singled up the middle to score Alyssa Yungwirth to make it 1-0 in the bottom of the first. The score remained the same until the bottom of the fifth.

Ryann Adams hit a ball to short and beat out a throw to put a runner on for Yungwirth. Yungwirth hit a two-run home run in the next at bat to put Wellsboro up 3-0 before the Lady Hornets closed out the game with a run from Hailey Neal in the sixth for the win.

Yungwirth was 2-for-4 with a home run and 2 RBI’s and Brought was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Kailee Clymer, Neal, Adams, Heidi Zuchowski, and Brianne Keane added the rest of the Lady Hornets’ nine hits.

Yungwirth pitched a complete game for her 16th win of the season and 36th of her career. Yungwirth scattered 4 hits in 7 innings, had one walk, and struck out 14.

Wellsboro and Liberty square off in the semi-final round of the District IV Class AAA playoffs on Thursday, May 25 at the Mosser Complex in Turbotville.

The Fifth Season

Carla is here to help you tackle the topic of health insurance

by Heather Weiner – May 23, 2017

This week, Home Page correspondent Sara Vogt speaks with Carla Westlake, Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator for the Laurel Health Centers, about navigating the potentially murky waters of obtaining health insurance and managing prescription medication expenses.

Carla, a Certified Application Counselor for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is an advocate for the individuals she serves, working with patients seeking insurance either through the Marketplace or the Pennsylvania Medicaid program. She also provides patients of the Laurel Health Centers with guidance in obtaining discounted or free medications through pharmaceutical company assistance programs with Rx Assist.

For anyone in the area needing insurance coverage—which includes both Laurel Health Center patients as well as members of the general public—Carla collects family size and income data to see if they qualify for state-based insurance. Documentation needed includes a recent tax return, W-2 form, 1099 form or Social Security benefits statement. The application is typically completed online at www.compass.state.pa.us. The second option would be the Affordable Care Act, which has a shortened open enrollment period this year that spans from 1 November to 15 December 2017 for coverage beginning 1 January 2018. Outside of the open enrollment period, Carla will determine if the consumer meets any of the special enrollment period criteria. Consumers may enroll or change their current plans outside of the open enrollment period under a variety of circumstances including: a change in household size as a result of a death, birth, divorce, or marriage; a recent loss of qualifying health coverage; or a change in eligibility for Marketplace coverage, among others.

There are also certain services—such as assistance with the Centers’ Sliding Fee program and help with prescription medication expenses—that Carla can provide only to Laurel Health Center patients.

Some pharmaceutical costs are extremely high and virtually unaffordable even for those who have insurance. Through Rx Assist, Carla can help patients determine if they are eligible for help with medication expenses. Carla uses Rx Assist Plus, a software program purchased by the Laurel Health Centers, which makes the process much easier. With Rx Assist Plus, Carla can search for a specific medication and the program tabulates the product’s availability for assistance. If assistance is potentially available, Carla will research the pharmaceutical company’s eligibility guidelines, which vary from company to company. Common guidelines include family size and income, and insurance coverage.

When asked about her biggest challenge, it is simply that she cannot help everyone—that there are cases where she hits a barrier that cannot be worked through. Listening to patients who are struggling with the choice of buying groceries or picking up their medications is not easy, but it is something that Carla has heard more than once. When this happens, she reports back to the provider so that they can determine if medication alternatives or samples might be an option.

Carla also spoke about the Laurel Health Centers’ Sliding Fee program, a financial assistance program based on family size and gross income. Patients can apply at any of the seven Laurel Health Centers even if they have health insurance coverage, and the program can be very beneficial for those with a high deductible. Eligible Sliding Fee program patients can also receive a discount card from ProAct that can be used at certain local pharmacies for medications. She also noted that the Laurel Health Centers offer a cash discount program for uninsured patients whose income level is too high for the Sliding Fee program and who pay at time of service.

Carla travels to the Mansfield, Elkland, Lawrenceville, Blossburg and Wellsboro Laurel Health Centers the first full week of each month. During the ACA open enrollment period, she is scheduled at Mansfield and Lawrenceville Laurel Health Centers one specific day each week to accommodate those needing her assistance during that busy time. Carla pointed out that for the Rx Assist program, she can only work with Laurel Health Center patients, who are generally referred through physicians. For the health insurance aspect of her position, however, Carla can assist any consumer and can be reached at 570-723-3424.

Some Tips from Carla:

The ACA Open Enrollment Period is much shorter this year, running from1 November to 15 December 2017 for coverage beginning 1 January 2018, and there are three options for applying:
1. Apply online at www.healthcare.gov.
2. Call 1-800-318-2596 and a representative will help you apply over the phone.
3. Call Carla at 570-723-3424 in mid-October 2017 to set up an appointment to meet with her for assistance with the application process.

Please be sure if you are navigating the ACA application on your own to use only the official website: www.healthcare.gov.

To apply for Medicaid, consumers can visit the Tioga County Assistance office in Wellsboro to request an application or can apply online at www.compass.state.pa.us

North Penn senior announces college decision on Friday, May 19

by Ed Weaver – May 22, 2017

North Penn-Mansfield senior Shane Kelly will continue his football career this fall at Division III Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA.

“I’m very excited,” the NTL Co-Lineman of the Year said Friday. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a young kid, now it’s coming true from all the hard work and dedication I’ve put in with my coaches and family.”

During his career as a Panther, Kelly played in 26 games, recorded 88 tackles, and one sack. In addition to his stats, Kelly was a pre-season All-Star, a District IV North 2nd team All-Star, an NTL 1st team All-Star, a 1st team All-Region selection by the Towanda Daily Review, and an Honorable Mention All-State offensive lineman.

While Kelly will miss playing under the lights on Friday nights, he chose Lycoming due to it’s closeness to home. Lycoming College in Williamsport is 50 miles away from Mansfield, so family and friends can watch him play.

“I like being close and when I visited there I felt at home. I met and got to bond with the team and the coaches are nice.”

“I love it when one of my players chooses to continue football at the next level,” said North Penn-Mansfield head coach Tom Dickinson. “That means we had an impact on him in his career. As a young sophomore we felt he could handle the job of starting and it paid off. He had growing pains, but then became the dominate player we thought he could be.”

Dickinson also offered some advice to Kelly as he prepares for his collegiate career.

“Hang in there during your freshman year, because all the players there were the best at their high school’s and you need to find your place, and make some kind of contribution,” Dickinson noted. “A little as a freshman and each year more and more. Our staff is excited to be able to go on Saturday’s and watch some of our players.”

The Home Page Network would like to congratulate Shane on continuing his football career, and wishes him the best at Lycoming College.

by Sara Vogt – May 21, 2017

Suzanne Scheib, RN, Nurse Supervisor with UPMC Susquehanna Home Care & Hospice joined Sara Vogt in the Home Page studios to discuss a PBS FRONTLINE documentary entitled Being Mortal. This free screening and discussion will be shown at the Deane Center on May 23 starting at 6:00 PM and concluding at 8:00 PM. This documentary is based on the bestselling book by Dr. Atul Gawande. In his book, Dr. Gawande shares about the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness and their relationships with the doctors, nurses, and the family members who care for them. If you have any questions after the screening there will be staff there available to answer them.

As Suzanne stated, “we as human beings tend to plan for all life events, we plan for births, graduations, home ownerships, weddings and yet, the biggest universal life event that will happen to us all is the end of our lives and yet we don’t plan.”

It is usually comforting and affirming to plan ahead for those important passages of life.

This event is a program of UPMC Susquehanna’s Supportive and Palliative Care Services.

For more information call (570) 723-0760.

MU 152nd Commencement
Five hundred forty one students received degrees at Mansfield University’s 152nd Commencement on Saturday, May 13 at Decker Gymnasium.

MU President Fran Hendricks, a 1979 Mansfield graduate, told the graduates, “You will hear your name and your degree called, then you will across this stage and your life will be changed forever. The key for all is to venture forth and boldly use your Mansfield education and experience to boldly open the doors of opportunity that await each of you.”

3 Methods to Improve Your Decor
Creating continuity, or rhythm, is one of the basic principles of design and is essential to achieving a visually pleasant decorating scheme. This rhythm allows one design element to flow to the next and assists the eye to move freely throughout an interior space. Without this flow, a room can actually feel awkward. As a decorator, I am frequently called upon by clients to help them create this harmonious flow in their homes.

It doesn’t matter if you’re designing one room or many, either way you must consider the whole house as a series of spaces linked together by halls and stairways. Each room does not have to be the same, but they do need to complement each other to strengthen the overall design composition.

Top 5 SWEET Games to Play!
It’s time to follow your sweet tooth down to Peggy’s Candies & Gifts in Wellsboro, PA and join in on the fun! Today’s episode presents the Top Five Sweetest Games to play.
The first game is called Truffle Shuffle. The rules: order an assortment of chocolate truffles and mix them in a bag or box. While blindfolded (or closing your eyes), have a friend pick a truffle from the bag and feed it to you and try to guess the flavor. Take turns back and forth between friends until the tasty truffles are gone. Whoever guesses correctly the most, wins!
(Be sure to watch the full feature for more fun candy games!)

On the Radar – Story of a Crash
Crashes are the leading cause of death for those aged 16-24. In addition to fatalities, 100’s of thousands more are injured – many critical and with lifelong effects. 80% of crashes are due to some sort of driver error. That means we can do more to try to prevent them.

Megan’s story (as told in today’s video feature) was one of the fortunate ones. She was distracted for a short amount of time and found her vehicle out of control and eventually upside down. Her vehicle was totaled, but thankfully no one else was involved and she was wearing her seatbelt. Without her seatbelt, her story could easily have ended very differently, very tragically.

Pursue Adventure at His Thousand Hills!
His Thousand Hill’s weeklong summer camps are almost here! Teen camp will be taking place from June 12th-16th; and Junior Camp will be taking place from June 19th-23rd. This year’s theme titled “Pursue” encourages kids and teens to pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace. Kids and teens will have the opportunity to have an incredible adventure with all of HTH’s facilities; which include a 40-foot climbing wall, archery, basketball, roller-skating, and so much more. Campers will also be in very good hands with certified instructors, highly trained staff, two counselors in every cabin, onsite emergency teams, healthy meals, and the love of Jesus being shared.
