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.

Coffee with Cops: Episode 1
On Friday, August 17, Chief of Police Jim Bodine and Patrolman Mitchell Christman of the Wellsboro Police Department sat down with members of our community for the first edition of Coffee With Cops. This event (hosted at Peggy’s Bake Shoppe) gave area residents the opportunity to ask questions, air concerns and enjoy the company of our local law enforcement.

Discussions included the new parking kiosks around Wellsboro and the fight against drugs in our community.
On the Radar – Back to School Safety
If you are dropping off/picking up students at school, be sure to follow your school district’s specific procedures:
– Watch out for children that may dart in between cars and run in parking lots
– Please don’t block crosswalks if you are stopped for a red light or other traffic
For students traveling to/from school:
– While waiting for the bus, stay back away from the road or curb
– Follow the rules set by the bus driver and don’t be a distraction
– When exiting the bus, look both ways and move away from the bus
State Rep. Candidates Address Education
On Wednesday, August 15, the Wellsboro Gazette hosted an Education Panel at The Deane Center in Wellsboro, PA. The event was presented as an opportunity to discuss the future of education for our region, with a focus on understanding the positions of our two state representative candidates for the 68th District, Carrie Heath and Clint Owlett. The event opened with an introduction by Josh Magnotta of the Wellsboro Gazette. After hearing comments from a number of the featured panelists (regarding education), our candidates, Heath and Owlett, stated their positions and responded to community questions – prompted by moderator William Hebe. Today’s video feature on The Home Page Network includes a few of the evening’s presented questions.
Laurel Behavioral Health
In the United States at this time there are over 40 million of us who are giving care to a loved one, friend or neighbor. It is a beautiful journey of our lives weaving into the fabric of our families and our nation. Many of those in this role are not in a paid position for their love and service but out of care support those in need. This opportunity to assist others, however, can take a toll on the caregiver if they do not step aside for a time of renewal themselves.
Be A Gift To The World
On today’s broadcast, The Home Page Network had the opportunity to cover a special meeting of the Rotary Club of Wellsboro. David Tews introduced our new foreign exchange student Pauline Berberof from Belgium, we heard from Rotary District Governor Roger Mattes, Jr. and were encouraged by two younger Rotarians, Katarina Swendrowski, and Haley Bayline.
