Personal Profiles: Pop’s Culture Shoppe
Pop’s Culture Shoppe, on Main Street in Wellsboro, provides a unique atmosphere and inventory. The space offers games, books, comics, puzzles, toys, etc., and hosts popular game nights and tournaments for the public. Pop’s fills a previously vacant niche in the local community, giving a distinct retail and social experience. Appropriately enough, the road that Julian Stam journeyed to become the owner of the store was unique, as well.

Before the queen can be coronated, the candidates will spend time with the judges and the public as they represent their schools and towns from across the state. Today, Home Page correspondent Lauren Gooch met with three candidates from Tioga County to learn more about them and what the festival means to them.
Dr. Mayo – Good Natured Nature
According to a study conducted by a public relations and marketing firm (DJ case and associates), increased use of technology is pulling people away from the outdoors. Spending more time inside, and less time outside is becoming the national norm. Work, school, and living places also seems to discourage time outdoors due to competing activities and priorities demanded in each of these areas. Despite these somewhat depressing results, the majority of Americans who were surveyed about their outdoor attitudes would prefer to be outside more. Interesting development in technological nature does provide some benefit (watching the nature channel, etc.), though it cannot and should not replace our experience with the “real thing”. We receive optimal benefit from interacting with nature, rather than competing with it.
