The 2017 Sports Hall of Fame!

Former athletes from Wellsboro, Mansfield, North Penn, Liberty, Cowanesque Valley, Williamson, and Elkland gathered and shared stories about their playing days and their favorite memories.

Baker, recognition of newly deceased Hall of Fame members, an introduction of Tioga County High School honorees, and the induction of the Class of 2017.

Take a Tour of the Colon!
Since 1969, colonoscopies have been performed to detect and prevent cancer in the colon.

In today’s follow-up to our earlier segment observing National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Home Page correspondent, Sara Vogt, traveled to the Williamsport Regional Medical Center in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, to learn more about colon health and cancer prevention. There she met with Jonathan Demchak, PA-C of UPMC Susquehanna for an educational tour of a giant colon.

The tour progressed from a clean normal colon to a colon with signs of disease.

On the Radar – Child Safety Seats
As a Child Passenger Safety Technician, I get many questions about the proper use of child safety seats and the laws pertaining to them.
In July 2016, PA law was changed in regards to how long a child is required to remain rear-facing in a car seat. Children are now required to be rear-facing until age 2.
PA law requires the following child seats based on their age:
0-4 yrs old: a child safety seat, with child being rear facing until age 2
4-8 yrs old: a booster seat

Students Explore Career Day
On Wednesday, March 22nd, Wellsboro Area High School hosted its first Career Day or “Post High School Career Day.” Businesses, both local and national, came and spoke to students about potential job offers and careers they could pursue. Some of the vendors present were the Wellsboro Post Office, Penn DOT, Dominion, and even a Veterinary Chiropractitioner. Career Day was geared mainly toward students who wanted to pursue the work force instead of college. They also provided many job opportunities, internships, and advice for students going directly into the work force and/or post-college. Teachers thought this was a great opportunity to have businesses come and see what skills the students have acquired.

Movin’ Together – Time Out, Stress Less
In today’s episode of Movin’ Together, Sara Vogt and Amiee Jones discuss the importance of taking “time out” or making time for yourself—an essential healthy tool to help in this journey called life! So far in our healthy tool basket for the year, we have added the tools of scheduling and hydrating. (Speaking of scheduling . . . sometimes our time out needs to be put in the book!)

Sara describes a time out that she has scheduled for herself on a regular basis for over two years. It has been a time of self-care, of learning, and of friendship; and now her friend, Kim, is making changes in her own life that involve taking time out on a larger scale.
