DANCING IN THE RAIN
Home Page correspondent Lauren Gooch had the opportunity to talk to the family of Casey Patrick. Casey was a 2010 Wellsboro High School graduate who passed away in 2011 at the age of 19. She was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart condition known as Eisenmenger’s Syndrome. For the past four years, Casey’s brother, Drew, has started memorial basketball games in his sister’s honor. Players from the boys and girls basketball teams will take on the faculty of the Wellsboro Area School District in the 4th Annual Casey L. Patrick Memorial Basketball Game. This event will take place in the Wellsboro High School Gymnasium this Saturday, March 14th, at 7:00 PM. The doors will open at 6:30 PM. The cost is $3.50 per person and children under five are free. All proceeds benefit the Casey L. Patrick Memorial Scholarship Fund and the high school basketball teams.

DECORATING DECODED: ACCESSORIES
Accessories are the small touches and decorative accents that bring a room together and set it apart from the ordinary. They can include wall art, throw pillows, antiques, sculptures, keepsakes and collectibles. They add color, texture and detail to a space and they make it user friendly and visually complete. While they should reflect your individual personality and taste, they also need to compliment the design and add to the aesthetic value of the room.
Be selective with accessories. Overdoing the number in a room can make it feel cluttered, but not having enough can leave a room looking incomplete.

SIMPLE GIFTS IN CONCERT!
On Wednesday, Home Page spoke with Linda Littleton, one of the members of the performing group Simple Gifts, about their concert at the Deane Center on Friday night, March 13th, at 7:30PM.
Linda and her musical partner Karen Hirshon have been playing together for 19 years, performing a variety of international music with many different instruments. Some of their instruments are rare and probably most of those coming to the concerts have never seen them before. Their passion is to take simple melodies and make up harmonies and counter melodies that they develop for presentation. They spend hours on this process and enjoy every moment!

HORNET HAPPENINGS – THE FFA
In today’s feature Janessa Davis interviews a few FFA members and AgriScience Teacher, Melanie Berndtson at the Wellsboro Area High School.
Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, Tim Kaltenbach, tells us about the National FFA Organization that promotes leadership and agriculture nationwide.
Russel Avery, Co-President of the Wellsboro Grand Canyon FFA Chapter, informs us that “FFA” is the older term for “Future Farmers of America”. However, in the year of 1988, it was recognized with a much shorter title that it is now referred to still today. “FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premiere leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.”
FFA was started in 1928 in a small town in Virginia,” says Wellsboro’s vice president, Tabby Brooks, of the Grand Canyon FFA chapter. Over the years, FFA’s membership criteria has evolved. In the year of 1965, FFA allowed membership admittance of African-Americans and allowed women in the year of 1969. Tabby truly informs us that anyone with an interest in agriculture can join FFA.
An “SAE” (Supervised Agricultural Experience) project is a requirement for every student in any agricultural class, taking place outside of the classroom. There are so many options of SAE’s! Entrepreneurship, placement, research, and even exploratory are examples of the categories for the endless SAE options.
