Weekly Highlights – 10/26/15 – 10/30/15
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.
HORNETS TOP WYALUSING, 21-13
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team won its final home game of the season as they hung on to beat Wyalusing 21-13 on Friday, October 23.
“It wasn’t our prettiest win, but it is a win,” said Wellsboro head coach Matt Hildebrand. “I’m looking back and second guessing myself on some of the coaching decisions I made but we controlled the ball very well tonight. We didn’t put the ball in the end zone there towards the end, but our defense came up big with more great plays and we got the win and that’s all that matters moving forward.”
CHAMBER HIGHLIGHTS – NOVEMBER ACTIVITIES
As the weather turns colder, WHP once again had the pleasure of meeting with Wellsboro Chamber of Commerce President Marsha Chesko to discuss November’s chamber highlights.
Friday, November 6th, the Guthrie Brothers will be paying homage to Simon and Garfunkel at the Wellsboro Community Concert in the Deane Center at 7:30pm. Wednesday, November 11th, the Deane Center will also be hosting another History Comes Alive event with Robert E. Lee at Coolidge Theatre.

MU TODAY – WNTE THE GIANT
Mansfield University’s WNTE “The Giant” 89.5 FM radio station has been broadcasting from the campus for over 40 years. Listeners can tune in to the station within a 10-12 mile radius from the school, or hop online to stream it worldwide.
The station is currently located in Alumni Hall on the Mansfield University campus. From vinyl, to cassette tapes, to fully automated computer systems – WNTE has undergone many changes over the years.
“I believe it was the first station located in and transmitting from Mansfield.” says General Manager, Matt Dishler. Dishler oversees the day to day runs, maintains the emergency broadcast systems functions, and makes sure the station DJ’s are well prepared to air their shows with suitable lineups.
THE BRIEFING – FALL & WINTER SAFETY
This week WHP presents The Briefing. Police Chief Jim Bodine was once again kind enough to meet with us and offer some seasonally relevant advice. With the parade and candy collecting planned for Wellsboro between 5:30-8:00pm this Saturday, Chief Bodine begins with some trick-or-treating safety tips for parents taking their little ones door-to-door this year.
“We want everyone to have fun, but safety is paramount,” he asserts.
