Tigers Finish Season 21-6 and District Champs
The North-Penn Mansfield Tigers boys basketball team was in action, in the first round of the PIAA state tournament, on Saturday March 11th. The Tigers faced off against Ridgway High School at Decker Gymnasium on the campus of Mansfield University.
The loss wraps up the season for the North-Penn Mansfield Tigers boys basketball team. The Tigers fell short of their goal; a run deep into the state tournament, but end their season with plenty to be proud of. The Tigers won the PIAA District 4 Class AA crown, and finished their 2016-17 campaign with a 21-6 record. North-Penn Mansfield says goodbye to a group of seniors that have left a lasting impression on the program, coaches, teammates, fans, and the record books. This group of senior basketball players will be remembered, and missed, for many years to come. Despite the loss of their graduating class, including their three leading scorers, we expect the Tigers to reload, not rebuild, next season.

Homegrown Hometown Healthcare
When asked why he decided to become a family practitioner, Dr. Heckman points to his own experience: “I had a family. My wife and I started taking our kids to the doctor, and being an engineer, I thought, ‘Hey, this is a system that I could make better’. . . I wanted to make medicine better for young families.”

He goes on to describe his transition from engineering to medical practice as a shift in how he viewed the kind of contribution he would be able to make to other people.
“As I was going through, I realized how much relationship was important to me. I loved what I was doing in the lab; I loved the fact that I might be able to contribute something to humanity in 30 years, but it became really clear in that process that I had more to give—that I had more that I wanted to do in a shorter period of time . . . And so I drifted into a different way of thinking about how I was going to spend the next 30 – 40 years, and medicine just seemed like it was going to be a big part of that—and not just medicine anywhere, but medicine taking care of my home area . . . as a calling, or a mission.”

The 13th Annual Maple Weekend!
This Saturday, March 18, and Sunday, March 19, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., over a dozen local maple producers throughout Pennsylvania’s Tioga and Potter counties will open their sugar shacks to the public for an inside look at maple syrup production. Amazingly, it takes roughly 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup, and understanding how the process works will give those who tour a new appreciation of the liquid gold that sweetens their morning pancakes.

Behind the Sparkle – Aquamarine
Welcome to another edition of Behind the Sparkle with certified gemologist, Bethany Hawn. This edition features March’s birthstone: aquamarine.

This light blue stone gets its name from the Latin word, aqua marina, for seawater. Aquamarine was once thought to bring safe passage and calm seas to sailors. During the Middle Ages, many believed that simply wearing the gem was an antidote to poisoning. Powder from aquamarine was used in ancient medicines to aid in curing infections. It was also believed to be a symbol of happiness in marriage. What a perfect gift for a bride-to-be or special someone with a March birthday!

MU Psych Central – Personality
Although we hear the words “introvert” and “extrovert” thrown around as ways to describe ourselves on the temperament/ personality spectrum, there is still more to be understood about these opposing traits.

It is common within the introverted/ extroverted world to prefer traits opposite of us. In fact, it is not uncommon for many couples to choose a spouse who occupies the opposite side of the spectrum. We find value in others who hold traits that complement us. With this in mind, it is crucial for us to pay attention to how our spouse or significant other is wired. Communicate about these differences and ask what the other person prefers. Then, negotiate and embrace these differences.
