by Home Page Staff - February 28-29, 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.
The 4th Annual Winter Performance Rally was held on Saturday, February 21 on the property of its sponsor, Waste Management, Inc. A total of 14 competitors participated in the Rally America-sanctioned event. Reaper Motorsports co-driver James Quattro joined Home Page in the studio following the event. Quattro, along with his partner Jeremy Keck, placed third overall in the race. “There’s an old racing saying, ‘Slow is fast.’” said Quattro. “When you’re in those slick sections, you really have to go slow to be fast. In order to be first, you must first finish. If you’re stuck in a snowbank, you’re never going to make it to the finish.”

The competitors and workers of the Winter Rally gathered for a banquet at the Whitneyville Fairgrounds on Saturday evening following the completion of the racing stages. Jon Kramer & Adam Kimmet finished first with a total stage time of 1 hour, 15 mins and 14 seconds. Alex Kuklove and Chris Rosato placed second with 1 hour, 20 minutes and 29 seconds. Local team Jeremy Keck and James Quattro came in third place overall, with a total stage time of 1 hour, 24 minutes and 33 seconds. Another local team, Antonio Esposito and Philip Barnes placed sixth overall and took first in class, with a clear time of 1 hour, 37 minutes and 18 seconds.
Last year, the Wellsboro Johnston Airport began a project to expand its 3,600-foot runway by 600 feet to 4,200 feet. To do this, the runway would be expanded westward toward Pine Creek. This project would require a large amount of fill – about 400,000 tons; this is necessary to elevate the land so that the extension can be achieved. According to the Department of Environment Protection the fill will also be used as support for construction of a hangar for Clean Earth, Incorporated and the airport.

On this edition of Hornet Happenings, Mr. David Krick, principal of the Senior High School, highlights two of the vocational opportunities that the students can experience in the school. Mr. Joe Mercuri, the instructor of Culinary Arts also shares about his work with the students. Mercuri and three seniors worked together to create The Java Hive – a new cafe in the high school library. These three students, Zoey Powell, Miranda Dunham and Megan Gee, came up with the idea for the cafe, made decisions on what the menu should be, what equipment they would need and how it would be built. They brought their proposition to the school’s Building & Construction class, instructed by Mr. Drew Seeling, and they took over the construction process of the cafe. The Building & Construction class students have undertaken the development of a number of the school’s facilities.
This is a broadcast written and produced by Mansfield University for our Wellsboro Home Page viewers. It’s a pleasure to be able to work with Mansfield University to highlight the great things happening on campus. This’s feature focuses on Allen Hall and its history in the Mansfield community. Allen Hall is now one of the newest, high-tech buildings on campus. Mark Polonia discusses the rebirth of a building.

The original Allen Hall was built in 1926 and was the Mansfield High School for many years. It’s first graduating class was in 1927 and its last graduating class was in 1959. As years went by this building was used in many capacities. But, all good things do come to an end. With the demolition and rebirth, a new high-tech Allen Hall was born. Faculty and students moved into a new building, a new direction, and a whole new mindset.
Fear. Pain. Doubt. Worry. Loneliness. Addiction. Depression. Death. Have you dealt with circumstances like these? If so, you know how it feels to wrestle with some difficult questions as you struggle through them. You may even find yourself wondering, “what’s the point?”

Many throughout history searched to find the meaning of life. Our time on Earth is short and full of trouble. Little of what we accomplish here will have lasting impact. So, in the midst of difficult circumstances, it’s only natural to question the meaning of it all.

Fortunately, there is hope! Your life is full of meaning, but chances are you’ve been searching in all the wrong places. Discover the true meaning of life as we get back to basics!
