by Home Page Staff - July 30-31, 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.
Matthews Motor Company has grown along with the family over the last 35 years. “I’m proud of this dealership and the people that work here. Our team cares about other people and you can’t manufacture that” – Jason Matthews.

In addition to being a certified master dealership and a twenty-seven year member of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association, Jason and his team have expanded the business into a multi-service facility. It’s not just selling and trading cars these days. Stop in and find out more about their rental service, body shop and car detailing packages. Oh yes, and along with the quality cars and excellent service you’ll find at Matthews Motor Company, they also buy cars.
We know from watching the news that disasters come in many forms and can strike unexpectedly. Have you ever wondered if Tioga County is prepared to respond effectively if disaster strikes our region? Tioga County Department of Emergency Services coordinator Benton Best and his staff recently participated in an exercise to prove their readiness. On Tuesday, July 19th, multiple agencies from several surrounding counties, conducted a training exercise in the county’s emergency operations center.

During a disaster multiple incidents can be occurring at the same time. The emergency may require response efforts from several agencies to be coordinated. In Tuesday’s exercise, elected officials and county emergency management coordinators were supported by Fred Boylstein from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
20 teams from District IV, including two from the Northern Tier League, gathered at the Williamsport Country Club on Tuesday, July 26 for the third annual District IV Football Coaches Association’s media day press conference.

Association President, and Loyalsock head coach, Justin Van Fleet kicked off the event and ESPN Williamsport’s Todd Bartley introduced each team. After the teams were introduced, all head coaches and player representatives talked to the local media outlets on hand about their outlook on the upcoming season.

The 2016 football season kicks off on Friday, August 26.
High school can be an exciting time to expand your communication skills and gain an appreciation for other cultures. Some students even take on the challenge of studying abroad in another country! Audrey Becker, a local high school student, has decided to spend her senior year studying through the Rotary Exchange Program in Normandy, France.

“I’m so excited to meet all the people, try all the new foods, and travel,” Becker stated. “I’m very excited to be able to speak fluent French by the time I come back, and to be a part of such a huge, international community.”
Cell phones are a necessity for many of us. We use them for everything, business purposes, to look up information, call, text, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, listen to books, music, and play Pokemon Go. With all of these conveniences, can cell phones really be that dangerous? Well, if you develop a dependence on them, they can.

Much research has been done and still needs to be done regarding the idea of cell phone addiction. Current research examinations are identifying the specifics of cell phone hazards to our health, often using gambling addiction as a comparison for cell phone addiction. A number of symptoms have been identified (similar to gambling) that provide an idea for what problematic cell phone use looks like.
