Weekly Highlights – 10/27/14 – 10/31/14

A look at this week’s highlights on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - November 1, 2014

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 Wellsboro Hornets returned home this weekend after suffering a defeat at the hands of Wyalusing. They will enjoy the comforts of their home turf the next two games, giving them the benefit of home field advantage.

On Friday night the Hornets faced off against the Towanda Black Knights. Wellsboro’s players, the crowd, and the field were adorned with pink in support of the fight against breast cancer.

Michael Pietropola led all passers with 154 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Towanda’s Noah Huff threw for 114 yards and 1 touchdown. The Hornets pulled ahead early, leading at halftime with a score of 21-7. Towanda rallied in the fourth quarter to bring it to a two-score game. In the last 47 seconds, Towanda would punch it into the end zone on a three yard run by Yates to make the score 28-21. The Hornets got the ball back after Towanda’s failed onside kick attempt. Wellsboro claimed victory with a final score of 28-21.



There is so much to do here in Tioga County, with wonderful places to stay and dine. But did you know that we also have an amazing airport and that you can learn to fly here? Today on Wellsboro Home Page, correspondent Victoria Pearson takes her first flying lesson with Wellsboro Johnston Airport Manager Craig Musser. The Wellsboro-Johnston Airport is located 6 miles southwest of downtown Wellsboro. It is available for use by business and private aircraft. Formerly a state-run airport, the Wellsboro-Johnston Airport was purchased by the Grand Canyon Airport Authority and is now managed by Craig A. Musser.



Dunhams Department Store & Furniture Gallery and Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital invite you to their 10th Annual Holiday Shopping Soirée on November 1st, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. The admission ticket for this event is $15. All of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go directly to the SSMH Auxiliary. The auxiliary has decided this year that the proceeds will benefit the new Cancer Center at the hospital. (The new Cancer Center gives Tioga County residents the opportunity to have treatments and medical assistance close to home.) Tickets are available at Dunhams Department Store or by calling Faith Preston, SSMH Auxiliary Co-ordinator at 570-723-0191. You may purchase your tickets right up to the night of the event. Tickets will also be sold at the door until eight that night.



Tioga County has so many stories to tell. It is an area rich in history and nostalgia. People come from all over the world to visit Tioga County, known for it’s beauty and outdoor adventure. But did you know that during World War II, there were people from distant lands interested in our area? And it wasn’t because of the beauty of our Grand Canyon. According to local sources, the Axis powers were interested in the Wellsboro area because of the Corning Glass Factory and the components that were made here at the time. Emporium, Pennsylvania – a town just 68 miles southwest of Wellsboro was also said to be on German bombing target maps because of the Sylvania plant that operated there. In response, our Civil Defense built a look-out on top of the famous Penn Wells Hotel. Read more…



This is it! Tonight’s game between the Wellsboro Green Hornets and the North Penn Mansfield Panthers is the game everyone has been waiting for. The 8 and 1 Panthers say they are ready to take on the 7 and 2 Hornets. Fans on both sides are saying that this is the biggest game of the season. Home Page had the opportunity to visit with both teams as they prepared for this BIG SHOWDOWN. We found the coaches and players on both sides cautious, but confident.
