Mansfield Highlights: 10/23/17 – 10/27/17
It’s time once again to take a look at what happened the past week. The Weekly Highlights are a great way to catch up, but don’t forget that you can always watch the full stories from either our front page or the archives section.
Hill, Panthers run all over Troy
Senior Brendan Hill had a career night as he rushed for 279 yards and two touchdowns as the North Penn-Mansfield Panthers topped Troy, 36-15 on Friday, October 20.
“The line did great and opened up holes,” Hill said afterwards. “We had a lot of penalties which hurt us a lot, but I think brought us together as a team and that’s by far the best we’ve played, especially our line.”
“Both teams could be 0-9 going into it and it’s still a rivalry,” said Dickinson about next week. “There’s nothing to lose, they have it all. They’re going to be undefeated. Nobody’s going to be picking us. I was thrilled the way the kids reacted the second half and hopefully its carries over to next week.”
Creating the Curated, Budgeting Best
First, mix and match and combine the old with the new. Use furniture and accessories of different styles, finishes and textures. Don’t be afraid to put an antique piece next to something brand new. Imagine a vintage, painted dresser with an aged patina and a modern, abstract painting hanging above it. These contrasts help create a room with history that looks like it has evolved over time.
A Story of Hope
It’s official, a new nonprofit large animal rescue center has been approved by the IRS as a 5013 (C) public charity organization which means Krystal Knecht, the president of the Mainesburg, PA Tioga County Equine Rehabilitation Center Inc. can now accept donations. Donors can deduct donations made to the center under IRC Section 170. They are also eligible to receive tax deductible bequests, devices, transfers or gifts under IRC Section 2055, 2106, or 2522.
Krystal’s story rescuing horses began in 2016 when a neighboring county’s animal humane officer contacted her with a horse that was in need of some TLC. The Equine Rehabilitation Center has grown from that single fortuitous act of kindness.
