A week of Home Page feature highlights!

by Home Page – August 4, 2018

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.

Ed Weaver Drops the (U) Word!
Today’s broadcast is another life-saving feature from UPMC Susquehanna. You can watch many life-saving programs on the UPMC Susquehanna channel, located on our left navigation bar under the heading, “Special Features.”

Take six minutes and watch something that may end up saving your life. This broadcast is for everyone, (with a particular focus on men’s health). Because of the nature of today’s feature, Home Page asked one of the toughest guys we know to take charge. Home Page Sports Director, Ed Weaver, sat down for a visit with Dr. Jeffrey Ranta, MD to discuss the “U” word.
Pastor Pete & The Star-Bearer!
On this broadcast, Home Page correspondent Julianna Vogt interviewed Pastor Peter Tremblay about the novel he authored, The Star-Bearer.

Pastor Tremblay, desiring to write a story similar to the fantasies written by J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, began a challenge through NaNoWriMo to write a novel in one month (and in one year of editing). He succeeded in completing the challenge, and The Star-Bearer became a reality. Believing that much of the genre of fantasy had grown dark and foreboding, he set out to write an adventure story filled with hope, love, and community. When Julianna asked him what he wanted to convey in the novel to the readers, he responded, ” I like a story where good wins out in the end.”
NTL Football Media Day 2018
Teams from the Northern Tier League gathered at Shepard Hills Country Club in Waverly, New York on Tuesday, July 31 for the league’s 3nd annual Media Day press conference.

Wiggle 100’s Shane Wilber hosted this year’s event and introduced each team. After the teams were introduced, all head coaches and player representatives talked to the local media outlets on hand about their outlook on the upcoming season.

The 2018 football season kicks off on Friday, August 24.
Upcoming Fun at Strohecker Vision Care
Strohecker Vision Care in Mansfield, PA is hosting two fun and informative events this month for children and their families. The first of these events is on Friday, August 3 from 8am-5pm. Strohecker Vision Care will be handing out free slices of watermelon to those who stop at their office.

On this broadcast, Home Page correspondent, Olivia Ryan, first spoke with Dr. Lindsay Kibler about their inspiration for celebrating National Watermelon Day. She informed us of the remarkable health benefits of watermelon. This fruit is an excellent source of vitamin A which helps your retina make carotenoids. These carotenoids are very important to keep the retina healthy preventing macular degeneration.
Chamber Highlights: Work Study Program
The Mansfield Chamber of Commerce team is often busy facilitating local events and special occasions. However, there are regularly scheduled services that are provided to the community, as well. These resources are conveniences that Mansfield community members can certainly gain from! Chamber Representative, Dawn Hull, took some time to explain a couple of these available benefits.
