The Amazing Anarchy Waffles
Batter up! It’s waffle time!

One Saturday morning each month, a waffle event is hosted by Anarchy Waffles at Night and Day Café. Vince Nance, the founder of Anarchy Waffles, spoke about where his inspiration comes from, creative flavors you can expect, and what Anarchy Waffles is all about.

With a daughter facing celiac disease, Vince soon learned that gluten free diets tend to be completely separate and somewhat second rate in relation to mainstream food options. He wanted to meet this problem with a solution that was both highly nutritious and incredibly delicious (so delicious that those without gluten free demands would rather eat his creation).

Enter: amazingly, tasty waffles.

Odyssey of the Mind – Mansfield Creatives
Have you ever thought great learners and problem solvers should have the same chances to shine as athletes? Have you heard of Odyssey of the Mind? It is a friendly competitive International problem solving program that gives students a chance to show off their mental and creative strengths in a competitive forum. Recently, several local teams competed in the Regional Odyssey of the Mind problem solving competition in Berwick, PA. One group of resourceful Mansfield students walked away with victory medals and are now preparing to participate in State level competition in April.

Community Highlight: Special Olympics
Tioga County’s chapter of the Special Olympics is far more active than most of us would guess. Typically, in our area, Special Olympics is synonymous with the Track and Field Event held at Mansfield University. While that is the most attended event, it is far from the only. Multiple sporting opportunities are offered, ranging from basketball, to bowling, to swimming, and more. The Manager of Tioga County’s Special Olympics, Donna Cummings, spoke with Homepage about all that the organization offers and includes.

Back to Basics – Complaining
We live in a complaining culture. We complain about delays, when it’s too cold, when it’s too hot, when the wifi is a little slow…we feel entitled. In a digital world that gives immediate gratification, people have high expectations. They’re not always so kind when those expectations are not met.

Some research shows that most people complain once a minute during a typical conversation. Complaining is tempting because it feels good, but so does eating an entire bag of candy, which is not good for you! Some researchers have also found that the more you complain, the more your brain becomes rewired to continue doing so. With practice, makes perfect – it becomes part of your personality and how other people see you.

Preventing and Detecting Cancer
March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month and Home Page correspondent Sara Vogt had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Darius Abadi, a general surgery specialist with UPMC Susquehanna in Wellsboro, about colon cancer and its prevention. According to the American Cancer Society about one in twenty Americans will develop colon cancer at some point during their lifetime. But the good news is that when colorectal cancer is found at an early stage before it has spread, the five year relative survival rate is about 90%. Colonoscopy is one of the best tests we have to identify cancers in the early stages, and is the only screening that is preventative as well as detective.
