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


by Home Page Staff - February 20-21, 2016

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.
The North Penn-Mansfield girls and Athens boys claimed the NTL Showdown title on Friday, February 12 at Mansfield University’s Decker Gym.
Morgan Westbrook led the Lady Wildcats with 12 points, six of them in a fourth quarter rally attempt, Emily Lunger had 10 points, Shanell Baglini scored five, Breana Gambrell had four, and Kaitlyn Testen netted two.
The Athens boys knocked off the defending NTL Showdown champion Tigers.
Brock Burleigh had 22 points, eight boards and three steals to lead North Penn-Mansfield while Shane Kelly had 13 points, nine boards, four steals and two blocks, Joel Whitteker chipped in with five, and Konnor Manikowski added four.
Tired of being stuck inside and looking for some winter fun? Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 2nd annual Wellsboro Winter Celebration on February 18-21.

“The first year event was very well attended,” said Julie VanNess, the Executive Director of the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce. “It was a great collaboration between multiple organizations and volunteers. I think all that attended had a wonderful time and it was nice to have the town buzzing with activity on a cold Saturday in February.”
Throughout Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will be a plethora of events for the whole family.
It’s February, the month that hosts Valentine’s Day, and our thoughts are all about doing things to show those we love how much we care and that should include the wonderful pets that share our lives and our homes. Julia Szabo is a pet columnist with the NY Post that says “if a house doesn’t work with dogs, then it won’t work with children or guests either”. So with all of that in mind this feature is all about “pet friendly” interior design.
Are you looking for a way to channel your compassion to make a difference in your community? Becoming a Susquehanna Health (SH) Hospice volunteer might be right for you. Volunteers do not need a medical background—only a kind heart, willingness to help, listening ear, and caring presence. There are many ways to help.
Joining Melissa Bravo in the studio today is Steve Hoover, Tioga County Service Forester with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Steve has graciously offered to provide us with a video update on the status of emerald ash borer, an invasive and destructive foreign forest pest of concern that is now damaging trees here in Tioga County.

Emerald Ash Borer was first detected in Tioga County in 2013. Property owners are reporting damage to trees in the southern portions of the county and as the species has moved into New York it is presumable that most woodlots in Tioga County now have infestations.
