Weekly Highlights – 08/15/16 – 08/19/16

A look at this week’s highlights (and bloopers!) on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - August 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.
Is there a college bound person in your family? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the cost of new college textbooks has been rising for decades. The bright side of the story is that educating yourself about textbook options can save you a bundle.

Making the best decisions about which textbook option to select can be challenging. Whether you’re looking at a computer screen or standing in the University bookstore, asking the right questions can save you from spending more money than necessary. Connie Brant, the Textbook Manager at Mansfield University bookstore, was willing to share her insider knowledge about choosing the best textbooks for your individual needs.
It is incredibly difficult to move from high school to collegiate athletics. In high school baseball, only 7% of players proceed to play at any level of college, (and for division 1, it’s 2%.) Today we speak to Rob Brant, a 2004 graduate of Mansfield High School who went on to pitch for the University of Pittsburgh on this edition of Making the Cut.

Brant described his transition as “interesting,” stating, “I had thought I was going to go to a different college first (Virginia Tech). I went to a baseball camp in Pitt and West Virginia within two weekends and both offered me scholarships, so I actually had to choose between those two. And I ended up going with Pitt and I’m glad I did!”
Do you ever get the feeling that there is nothing to do? Well have no fear, the Chamber Highlights are here! Every month we sit down in the studio with Wellsboro Chamber President, Marsha Chesko. There are a lot of upcoming events for the months of August and September! We are blessed to live in such a big-small town with lots of variety in shops and restaurants! Whether your looking for ice cream, candy, steaks, burgers, seafood, or simply diner food, it can all be found right here in Wellsboro!
On the weekend of August 18th-21st the Arcadia Movie Theater is hosting the Endless Mountain Film Festival. All weekend there will be showings of films from 8AM until after midnight!
Football season is upon us, and the defending District IV Class A champion Wellsboro Hornets are gearing up for the 2016 season.

Head Coach: Matt Hildebrand (4th year, 28-7)
2015 Season Record: 10-3
Key Returners: Quinn Henry, Brandon Lamphier, Collin Pietropola, Parker Jones
Players to Watch: Quinn Henry and Parker Jones

The Hornets had their best season is program history and brought home the team’s only District IV Class A title. This year, the Hornets move up to Class AA. The Hornets return junior quarterback Quinn Henry, who led the team in passing yards (1,373) and rushing yards (1,045), and 6 foot-5-inch tight end Parker Jones, who led the team with 40 receptions for 577 yards and 8 touchdowns.
No matter the time of year, Hills Creek State Park has countless opportunities and activities to enjoy. Pete Herres and Tim Morey, of Step Outdoors, describe Hills Creek as a “four season park”, and take a few moments to explain all that this scenic land has to offer.

As the year moves along, the fall foliage becomes a spectacular draw for Hills Creek State Park. Photography, walking, jogging and relaxation are a few of the reasons to visit the park during this peaceful, beautiful time of year. The annual TRYathlon is held each fall at Hills Creek. An emphasis is placed on the word “try” because this event welcomes athletes from all levels of competition and experience.
