Weekly Highlights – 12/15/14 – 12/19/14

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


by Home Page Staff - December 20-21, 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 Area High School Chorus rang in the season with their annual Christmas concert! This concert featured the school’s full chorus of more than two-hundred students as well as the women’s ensemble, men’s ensemble, and Dickens Choir. They sang many old holiday classics, including “Sleigh Ride” and “O Holy Night”, along with some newer favorites such as “Let It Go” from Disney’s feature film, Frozen. Audrey Becker had the chance to speak with Judy Smithgall, the Choir Director, about the night’s thrilling concert. (Watch the feature to learn more!)
Wellsboro Home Page corespondent Drew Patrick had the opportunity to speak with the yearbook staff at Wellsboro High School about what happens to make the yearbook special.
Students now have the option to be assisted in receiving a yearbook. They have the opportunity of acquiring this keepsake filled with memories that will last a lifetime.

Encouraging our community nursing home residents can be as simple as sending a Christmas card! And, of course, they love visits from those of us who live in the area. Morgan Koziar spoke with Wellsboro Shared Home Administrator, Barbara Cleveland and Assistant Administrator Whitney Sunday about the needs of their residents. Families are encouraged to come and bring their children (and pets, if you would like.) Cookies are always welcome, but please no nuts – (sugar and chocolate chip are are favored, just in case of nut allergies.) Many of those who reside in the nursing homes have families that live far away, so visits and cards during the Christmas season are really welcomed. Having our children make cards is a wonderful way to let them know that we are thinking about them. As Barb said, “ You do not stop having Christmas after a certain age.”
This is the season of lights. It began with the birth of Jesus, when the wise men followed the light of His star. Later, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” In the book of Matthew, scripture reminds us that as believers, we are the light of the world and are called to let our light shine before others – that they may see our good deeds, our acts of kindness and love, and glorify our Father in heaven. Bright, beautiful reminders of His love for us can be seen during the Christmas season as people everywhere find creative ways to light up this world.
In this feature, we visited two homes decorated for the Christmas season with wonderful light displays. First, we went to the residence of Bill and Harriet Williams, whose home is on Niles Road off Mount Zion Road. Over their 43 years of marriage they have placed their family as their core. When their daughter wanted to do outside Christmas lights many years ago a new tradition began for their family. Their home in Wellsboro (that we visited today) has been decorated for the past eighteen years.
We also visited the home of Jennifer and Aaron Mosher, whose lights can be seen on Broughton Hollow Road off of Stony Fork Road. They really enjoy Christmas lights and for the past three years have been doing this decorating as a Christmas gift for each other.
Last Friday, December 12, 2014 – Wellsboro Home Page ran Part 1 of the Wellsboro Airport Expansion Project. The broadcast was requested by Craig Musser, the Wellsboro Johnston Airport Manager. He asked for the broadcast to address any concerns that the community may have regarding the environmental impact of the expansion project. The Pine Creek Head Waters Protection Group joined us for that program to express their concerns. Because of the time constraints and in order to make room for discussion on the concerns, Craig Musser did not really have enough time to cover all of the benefits of the project during that broadcast. In this feature, we have asked Craig to join us again to explore those benefits and answer some of the concerns mentioned last week.
