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.

Hornets hand Muncy 46-14 loss
The Wellsboro Green Hornets and Muncy Indians entered their week six game both undefeated. Wellsboro kept their perfect record in a 46-14 win on Friday, September 29.

“I like where we are sitting right now,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand following his 45th career win. “This is where we wanted to be coming into the season. We’re in the drivers seat and we just have to continue taking care of things on the field every week and be smart what we do out here and hopefully we continue to play good football, stay healthy, and continue to take care of our guys as we move ahead.”
Goodies For Our Troops rocks!
Wellsboro’s Dawn Pletcher shows us her operation; Goodies for the Troops and how her volunteers are boosting morale across the globe. Since 2005, packages filled with a taste of home have been shipped all over the world from Wellsboro, PA. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am – 12pm volunteers are compiling heartfelt goodies for our military. (Dawn and Goodies For Our Troops is sending a care package of rocks! Find out why by watching today’s feature video!)
On the Radar – Bullying Prevention
October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and this segment is some basic information about bullying in order to help others understand there is a problem and there are things we can do to try to prevent it.
So what can we do in our schools, communities, families, and peer groups to help prevent this from occurring?
– Have a zero tolerance policy. Let everyone know the behavior will not be accepted
– Use peer pressure in a positive way. Show support for the victim of bullying and let the bully know that their behavior isn’t winning them any friends.
– Maintain open lines of communication so incidents might be more readily reported.
– Be a good role model for family, friends and peers. Set the example for others to follow.
– Stay educated on and aware of the issue. Many people don’t know that bullying can be a crime.

The MU Police Academy
An exciting training opportunity exists in Tioga County! For those pursuing a future in law enforcement, the Mansfield University Municipal Police Academy is a perfect option. Chief Scott Henry took some time to explain the purpose of the academy and what it entails.
