Weekly Highlights – 01/05/15 – 01/09/15

A look at this week’s highlights on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - January 10-11, 2015

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.
What’s New for Wellsboro Home Page 2.0:

Up until now we have been locked into one feature story a day. When breaking news happened we would bump down the feature story and replace it with the breaking news story. But what if something important happened that wasn’t considered breaking news? We were stuck. Now, with Wellsboro Home Page 2.0, we have a way to publish several stories on the same day. You’ll find them at the top of the left navigation bar. Every 5 seconds or so each story will rotate through like a slideshow. When you see one that you are interested in, just click on the story photo or choose the story you want to view from the list located under the rotating photos. We have also cleaned up both the top navigation bar and the side bar to make things easier to navigate. Find out more…
New Years! This time of year can be both encouraging, or just downright discouraging! Have you set any New Year’s resolutions or goals? Maybe you have set a goal to get fit and eat healthier? Or maybe you don’t bother with them at all, because if the goal is not met it just leads to discouragement. Either way, Home Page would like to encourage you to put your best foot forward in 2015 and stay positive as we begin this year.
This month’s exhibit at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is Endless Mountains, Rural Places, Rural Live – a vast collection of paintings, quilts, writings and photographs showcasing the talents of those in our backyards. Northern Tier Cultural Alliance is the producer of this exhibit. Ruth Tonachel, Executive Director of NTCA, shared with us her passion for folk art and the everyday person who uses their talents to document the importance of where they live.
State Rep. Matt Baker (R-Bradford/Tioga) took the oath of the office on January 6th as a Pennsylvania state representative for the 12th time. For the 2015 – 2016 term he will be representing all of Tioga County, as well as parts of Bradford and Potter counties.
“It continues to be my pleasure to work on behalf of the people of the 68th Legislative District who have kindly elected me to be their voice in Harrisburg,” said Baker. “As we start yet another legislative session, I will continue to work for the betterment of those living and working in the Northern Tier, which means supporting more job creation opportunities, improving access to health care and ensuring all students receive a quality education.”
The Wellsboro Hornets traveled to Blossburg on Thursday, January 8th to take on the North Penn-Liberty Panthers in NTL wrestling action.

The Match kicked off at 285 pounds with Owen Covert taking on Justin Kriner. Kriner struck first with a two-point take down. He didn’t hold the lead for very long, as Covert got the quick two-point reversal and rode out the match to take the victory 3-2.

After five North Penn-Liberty wins by forfeit, Wellsboro sent out Vincent DeRita to face Dewey Wise at the 145 weight class. Wise had an early takedown and followed it up with a near fall. Wise finally took full control later in the match and pined DeRita at 1:30 to give the panthers a 36-3 advantage. Read more…
