Weekly Highlights – 11/21/16 – 11/25/16

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


by Home Page Staff - November 26-27, 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.
Dunham’s Corner is back – and just in time for the holidays! It’s the season of giving and now is the perfect time to find your loved ones something special. Ann Dunham Rawson invites you to Dunham’s Department Store’s amazing 33-Hour Sale! At this calmer, (less taxing), after-Thanksgiving-Sale you’ll find hundreds of items on sale – plus door buster coupons and prizes! All at a civilized hour with hot chocolate served by the friendly, helpful staff at Dunham’s!

Shopping at Dunham’s has never been easier or more carefree. As always, free parking is available behind Dunham’s and along Wellsboro’s Main Street and many side streets. Dumham’s also provides free gift wrapping during their 33-Hour Sale. It’s downtown location sits perfectly among the many areas restaurants, shops and entertainment centers. Grab a bite to eat at Cafe 1905 or finish the day with a movie at the Arcadia Theatre.
Today’s feature is Part II of a look at home invaders, the creepy crawly kind.This time we are highlighting the blood suckers!
This is the time of year, unfortunately, that lice come calling at your door. But don’t feel singled out. Do you know that the louse has been hitchhiking a ride through history for as long as Homo sapiens have walked about? You can read more about human lice on Scientific American’s website story of lice and men, an itchy history.
Bed Bugs:
Bed bugs are a small, root beer colored, flat as a frying pan insect that feed on the blood of animals – including us. In fact the common bed bug (Cimex lectularius) prefers feeding on humans, it’s done so since before the time of Aristole. Colonists brought the hitchhikers with them to North America and they’ve been bedeviling us ever since.
Assassin Bugs / Kissing Bugs:
These bloodsucking insects are in the order Hemiptera.They are an abundant family and quite common in the outdoors, so the name does not go far enough to tell you which members of this family are the cause of worry. Watch today’s feature to learn about some of the more common kissing bugs in our neck of the woods.
In America, since the 1600’s, we have been observing a celebration of thanks known as “Thanksgiving.” It was originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year in 1621. Abraham Lincoln published a presidential proclamation in 1863 which states in part, ‘I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.’ (You can find the entire address below.) Now, hundreds of years later we are still gathering the last Thursday of November with family and friends to remember and reflect on the history of that first Thanksgiving.
In 1621, the Pilgrims and Puritans celebrated the first Thanksgiving. They had immigrated from England and for three days they had a feast filled with celebration and “thanksgivings”, or prayers to God for the blessings that He had given them. Almost 400 years later, we are still celebrating this wonderful holiday; and taking a day to remember the things that we have been blessed with and are so thankful for.
This Thanksgiving, the Home Page Staff would like to encourage all of our viewers to take time to think about what you are thankful for. With all of the craziness in life, we can take what we have for granted so often. It’s so important to remember the incredible things that we have been blessed with – even though it may be hard to see them at times.
It’s the season of giving! You can find something for everyone on your Christmas list right here in Wellsboro. Skip the long lines and crazy traffic and settle in for a relaxing day on the town. You can find fantastic deals just a short walk away. For a list of downtown shops and vendors, be sure to visit our shopping page! Take a break from the shopping for breakfast, lunch or dinner at our many local restaurants and cafes. All of this and more, set in our beautiful gas-lit streets of Wellsboro. Happy Black Friday Shopping!
