WOW. Even the Buckeye 8 won't take Carrollton and took Cambridge instead.


But there's this regarding the failed EBC.....which is not hot:

Shoot Facial is like the Cleveland Browns front office....he thinks he's the smartest in the room....but then his moves turn into a tire fire like out near Amsterdam somewhere off SR 43 in the middle of nowhere Carroll County (almost in) Jefferson County.

But I give Shoot credit, he's still a solid commentator. He must have been turned down from Tuslaw or Manchester years ago....maybe he has Crooked Canal Fulton connections.

Assuming a standard 60-day installation window, the field should easily be in by the end of July.
I'll miss your writing with conviction. I still think your new league should have a meeting with CCC.

Aquinas should go IVC
@bootleg

Maybe the bigger 7 school division of the IVC should play #PACtionâ„¢ (7 schools) for one "non-league" but arranged game a year in rotation?

Was that what youse were thinking? Or were youse thinking Arby's?

There's some non league options in Olympic sports.....Lake Center Christian, Kidron, CCC, Sirpilla RV Aquinas....and there's some opportunities with Massillon in Olympic sports (girls sports, golf, swimming, tennis, soccer, wrestling, and others). Not basketball; maybe a small amount of baseball.

I read over the weekend that a 334 unit housing development is planned for Lake Township near Lake Center Street & King Church Avenue. If this is in Lake schools @Bluestreakoffice may not drop down to DIII.

@Bluestreakoffice - give us a full report.

Hartville Council discusses sewer tie-in for 334-unit housing development in Lake Twp.​

Canton Repository


Hartville Village Council
Monday meeting
KEY ACTION:
Discussed a proposal from Addison Properties for a 334-unit housing development on 95 acres near Lake Center Street Northwest and King Church Avenue NW in Lake Township, including a potential tie-in to the village sewer system.
DISCUSSION: Eric Fallon, senior project engineer from CT Consultants, said the number of units could at some point require an expansion at the village wastewater treatment facility, but noted it was premature to consider this because the builder has not provided a timeline for the full buildout. Councilman Tim Hayden said allowing sewer tie-ins — a double the resident rate because the development is outside the village — would allow the village to collect money that could eventually be put toward expansion or operations of the treatment facility if needed in the future. Councilman Frank Gant asked Fallon if the CT Consultants could conduct a feasibility study before making a decision on allowing the sewer tie-ins. Fallon said this could be done, but the information would likely be inaccurate because the development may not be complete for 10 years or more, and the need for a facility expansion is still not an absolute certainty.


Here is a map of the area....it is right near the High School....one of the three farms that is left on this road....this is going to take sometime..all the houses around it have their own septics...the high school is tied to Hartville Sewer...they would have to run the sewer line to there..that would now require Lake Township to approve the line to travel down Lake Center to past King Church....then there is the matter of water..I think the high school is still on its own well...because all those houses that you see there are on their own wells...North Canton Water System has made it near there but a bulk of it was to deal with the EPA dump that is a mile and half away from where this allotment would go...the dump was thanks to the Tire Companies of Akron...they have to get approval from North Canton Water and again Lake Township...and they then pay for all these utilities to just get there...I think the area can handle their own wells but nobody wants those...the issue with the septics..the lots would have to be bigger and then you can not get into the 334 number of units


Here is a map of Lake School District.....it is not very large


Here is a map of all the school districts in Stark County


Now its time to get ready for the Class of 74 Prom to be held in the lovely gym! Color My World...50th reunion

I didn't realize that Brooke was part of this...crossing the river had to be fun till they built that new bridge. All the schools except Brooke are in Ohio...I wonder what issues they have had to work out between the 2 states athletic associations

When you have to make your obligatory trip to Steubenville have you traversed your way down 43 thru Carrollton to Amsterdam and thought of staying at the Honking Goose Inn!

Why would the IVC take Aquinas? Why would they want Aquinas?

Your suggestion on the Bigger 7 school division IVC playing the PAC is an excellent idea.

Olympic sports with Lake Center, Kidron, good idea...I would have thought they would be playing Massillon in girl sports for close travel games...other boys sports...not so...Massillon is trying in those sports

Cambridge has been in the league for 4 years.

Carrollton is in that geographic footprint. Why weren't they taken into the Buckeye 8? They lost out to Brooke!

Why would the IVC take Aquinas? Why would they want Aquinas?

Because they're small and ready to fold much like TCC. But why would the IVC take Conotton Valley for 3-4 football games a year?

The obvious "hitch" to any league is having an odd number and that pesky floating bye week.

I never understood why the IVC didn't try to recruit to become an 8 and 8 team league when there are some obvious candidates close by. Sirpilla Aquinas is shall now be known by, is an obvious addition to the IVC (why wouldn't the bigs want the smalls to get to 8 so they don't have to play those embarrassing one sided matchups) ....

regardless they aren't as tuff as PACtionâ„¢

What will be the direction of our beloved PACtionâ„¢ moving forward? or is the 7 solid for now? sometimes schools can't agree so staying static may be the answer, are the powers of PACtionâ„¢ even meeting? or are they holding off for something to rise up and hit them in the face?(like adding teams mentioned by Rich)

The part of that story that stood out to me was "Hartville is still a VILLAGE?" Guess that shows my football bias. Manchester, a D5 school, resides in the CITY of New Franklin where there are no other high schools. Lake, a D2 (bordering on D3) school, is 2 miles away from Lake Center HS in the VILLAGE of Hartville.

Geography is weird . . .

Geography IS weird, however, remember that Lake Local Schools also have the Village of Uniontown and a whole bunch of Lake Township land that's not in either the village of Hartville or Uniontown. There's approximately 20,000 people that live in Lake Local Schools. It would be higher if not for a small quarter of Lake Township consisting of Greentown that goes to North Canton Hoover. Greentown merged with Hoover in, I believe, 1956.

In the City of New Franklin, which is all of the old Franklin Township sans the Village of Clinton, you have four school districts: Northwest, Norton, Coventry, and Manchester.

That makes more sense about New Franklin. Didn't realize they converted the township to a city.

That said, it's still weird considering they're a "city" but majority of the city doesn't have sewer service and just got public water.

Found the Summit Co version of school district map below

LOVE IT! Looking at this spectacular map makes me wonder - what if we had a Bellstores league? All schools in a town with a Bellstores in them? What would that look like? Imagine we'd at least have a Big & Small school division (Maybe those schools could split from the OHSAA and that could be the "separate" playoff the Triway & Dalton superintendents were trying to get back in the day?).

Considering the creativity we have in #PACtion2024â„¢ I know someone could create that.

And I think we all know who it will NOT include . . .

Fun facts about one IVC school in particular, I heard Cardinal Mooney and a few other larger schools refused to play Garaway trying to fill non-league spots. Can't say I blame them given the run they had last year and most of their kids back likely to make a similar run.

That being said, powerhouse Riverview has Garaway week 1 and Tuslaw week 2. Even with the stellar coaching the Mustangs had last year, they drilled that team by well over 30 if I remember correctly, that combined score between those two opponents could be over 100-not very much. Who knows if Tuslaw does not win by at least 50, Dial may have those boys running up @Rich Kotite favorite hill! Hopefully that game gets drop by the mustangs in 2025, most likely replaced by Orange and Black to the west unless they refuse......
