The Weekly Highlights 04/21/14 – 04/25/14

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


by Home Page Staff - April 26, 2014

Happy Weekend, Tioga County! 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.



Computer expert Barry Hughes spoke with Home Page Correspondent Morgan Koziar about Microsoft potentially dropping all support for Windows XP. While many are saying that it’s over for one of Microsoft’s most successful operating systems, there are some who say it still has life left. Microsoft released Windows XP in 2001. It was a culmination of all the high points of earlier operating systems, but with much more efficiency. Barry told us that “hope is not lost for XP.” A deal has been made with China to add two more years of support for XP users. He also stated that a number of Fortune 500 companies still utilize it and have struck deals with Microsoft for added support.



The annual Rotary-Laurel Festival Booster Dinner is taking place on Wednesday, April 30th at the historic Penn Wells Hotel. Social Hour will begin at 6:00 PM with a cash bar, and dinner will be served at 7:00 PM. The Wellsboro Rotary has been a tremendous supporter of the Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival and, to date, they have donated over $100,000.00 to help support this community event.



Summer-time is an opportunity for our children to be involved in all kinds of activities. But what opportunities are the best for your family? Some of those questions can be answered at the Summer Activities Fair being held on Tuesday, April 29th from 6 – 8 PM at the Church of New Covenant in Mansfield, PA. The Fair will include vendors from the area such as Mansfield University, Three Springs Camps, YMCA of Mansfield, and Tioga Central Railroad, along with many others. The fair gives the parent the ability to talk to the different vendors about what they have to offer and discuss options.



Earlier this week, we continued our special series titled, Attics, Basements, and Secret Places. We visited the bottom of Northwest Savings Bank in Wellsboro, PA. It’s reminiscent of old catacombs, with a number of old bank vaults, secret doors, and one twist and turn after another. It’s possible to get lost in just a few seconds. If we had known how confusing it was going to be, I think I would have dropped breadcrumbs to help us find our way back. In the really old section under the bank, we discovered a bomb shelter and experienced an adrenaline rush when we encountered problems with the vault door.



The Wellsboro Women’s Chorus is a group of women who share a love of singing. This group, along with the Wellsboro Men’s Chorus and the Wednesday Morning Musicales will present their spring concert this Saturday, April 26 at 7:00pm. Diana Frazier is the director for the Women’s Chorus and the Musicales, while Sharon Humbert directs the Men’s Chorus. The title of the concert is And Still We Sing. Frazier feels this title represents the chorus’ passion to sing and the comradery of performing together.
