LAUNCHING HOME PAGE 4.0
As we begin 2017 we have several announcements that we are very excited to tell you about. First, we have officially established a new parent organization called The Home Page Network. You can find us at TheHomePageNetwork.com and The Home Page Network on Facebook. At this location you will find links to our different Home Page markets and network features including HPN News and Home Page Sports along with our association with Circle W Sports which is operated by our very own Ed Weaver.
During this next year we will be adding HPN Newscasts not only to our Home Page sites but also on Blue Ridge Cable Channel 13. But, our really big news today… is that we would like to welcome Mansfield Home Page as our first addition to The Home Page Network. That’s right, MansfieldHomePage.com is now available along with Mansfield Home Page on Facebook.
ATTICS, BASEMENTS & SECRET PLACES – SHERWOOD
The Sherwood Motel, located within walking distance of Wellsboro’s finest shops, restaurants, and attractions, is the perfect place for your family vacation or a romantic getaway. Their 42 non-smoking, spacious, and comfortable rooms feature cable TV with HBO, individual heat and air conditioning controls, free Wi-Fi, microwaves, mini refrigerators, and more. No matter which accommodations you’re searching for, The Sherwood Motel seeks to provide a large variety of quality rooms and services.
Home Page correspondents, Johanna Vogt and Lauren Gooch spoke with co-owner, Marsha Chesko about the history of The Sherwood Motel. In 1886, Walter Sherwood, a lawyer with Owlet & Sherwood, built the house that is now the Sherwood Motel, and owned it until the early 1950s. It was a boarding house until the West Family bought it in 1951 and turned it into a motel. In 2003, Bob and Marsha Chesko renovated the rooms. For almost 14 years, they have continued to serve their guests.
MU FACES WEST CHESTER DOULBE HEADER
Tianna Jackson led four Mountaineers in double digits with 17 points, scoring 12 in the second half alone. Mary Kate Rumbaugh recorded her second double-double of the season with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Brielle Kelly hit double-figure scoring for the 10th time this season with 12 points and also added seven rebounds. Bella Ricci came off the bench to score 11 points.
Matt Tamanosky scored 11 of his career-high 31 points in overtime to lead Mansfield to a 106-102 PSAC win over West Chester in double-overtime Tuesday evening on First Citizens Community Bank Court in Decker Gymnasium.
The win was the first for the Mountaineers over West Chester since Tony Fannick hit a 3-pointer with one second remaining in a 53-50 win during the 2009-10 season snapping a 12-game losing-skid to the Golden Rams.
SPIRIT OF WOMEN – HALF OF ALL WOMEN
Spirit of Women’s first event in Tioga County for 2017 will be held on January 19th at the Medical Plaza in Mansfield, PA. On today’s broadcast Home Page correspondent Sara Vogt met with Spirit of Women’s outreach coordinator Tonya Welshans and physical therapist Barbara Rouse at the event location to find out the details for the event.
Tonya stressed that this special evening will be both informative and fun. This gathering is for women of all ages starting at childbearing years to postmenopausal. The event begins at 5:30 PM with a tour of the new facility while enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres! Next on the schedule from 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM UMPC/Susquehanna Health’s Women’s Health Specialists Barbara Rouse, PT and Brooke Patt, PT will be presenting a talk titled, ‘Half of All Women.’ Statistics show that 50% of all women do not talk to their physicians about the health of their pelvic floor.
TIGERS CLAIM BERGUSON TROPHY
Tigers. Hornets. A rivalry game unrivaled by any other in District IV that plays out over the course of 32 minutes, but comes down to the final seconds.
Thursday night’s game was no different.
Wellsboro hosted North Penn-Mansfield in the third annual Margaret (Peg) Berguson Memorial Trophy game, with the Tigers coming home victorious in a 62-59 NTL Large School Division win.
