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


by Home Page Staff - November 12-13, 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.
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team rushed for 341 yards en route to a 49-26 victory over Hughesville in the first round of the District IV Cass AA playoffs on Friday, November 4.
“It was a different win than we’ve had this year but I’m proud of our boys and the character that they showed,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand.
“It was a different situation we’ve been in all year and you don’t know how they are going to respond to that,” Hildebrand continued. “Being down for the first time all year they came back and responded in a big way kept the hammer down and kept fighting all night. We said once you get to the playoffs the whole nature of the beast changes and I’m really proud of the boys and how they fought all night.”
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
A government for the people and by the people, in a nation where people are free. Today is a very important day. Today, we exercise our right to vote to select those who will govern us. The joys of freedom that we experience here came with a price. Let us not forget the many who have given their lives to make it happen. We thank God for those who have fought and died to protect our freedom. Our system was designed to work through the participation of our citizens. It requires you to be a part of setting our course for the future. No matter how you choose to vote today – democrat, republican, independent or a mixed ballot. It’s critically important that you vote.
Don Gill Elementary’s biennial fundraiser for grades K-4 is in motion and the students’ work is looking amazing!
Display My Art is a fun opportunity for students to get his/her artwork published on numerous products such as t-shirts, Christmas ornaments, pillow cases, coffee mugs, water bottles, and so much more! There is no obligation for students to purchase anything and they will receive a complimentary magnet with their artwork just for submitting.
North Penn-Mansfield senior JP Shaw announced he will continue his baseball career after graduation at Mansfield University in front of family, friends, teammates, coaches, and school officials at North Penn-Mansfield Junior/Senior High School on Wednesday, November 9.
As a junior Shaw helped the Tigers to a District IV championship in Class AA, despite starting the season in Class A, and made a run into the PIAA State playoffs where they came up short against Neumann-Goretti in extra innings.
“It’s pretty cool and I’m excited,” Shaw said of being able to play for his hometown university. “I also have a couple of buddies that play for the team, so it’ll be fun.”
Today’s feature is with guest Tonya Welshans, Williamsport based outreach coordinator for UPMC Susquehanna Health’s Spirit of Women program here in Tioga and Lycoming counties. When asked to explain the mission, Tonya said, “Spirit of Women is a unique program that motivates and encourages women to make positive choices in their lives. We want them to be educated and act upon recommended screenings, to see their physicians regularly even when they feel well to live the best life they can.”
You are invited to attend their next event on November 28th, from 5pm to 7pm being held at the Deane Center in downtown Wellsboro. Starting at 5:00pm there will be many opportunities to talk with your friends and have those important screenings done such as blood pressure, body composition and posture screening. Shopping is also available at this time with the Spirit of Women rewards partners such as the Fifth Season. Then at 6:00pm a light dinner will be served while registered dietitian Susan Browning shares with those attending her presentation entitled, ‘You will receive one body – the first step in a journey of self-acceptance.’
