Author: Matthew Florjancic Published: 2:44 PM EST November 16, 2018 Updated: 3:07 PM EST November 16, 2018 CLEVELAND -- “Defending DiSanto.” That has been the mantra for the Case Western Reserve University men’s soccer team throughout the 2018 season, and should the Spartans be able to defend DiSanto Field twice more this weekend, there will be plenty of reason to celebrate on the University Circle campus. Wins tonight against the 10th-ranked Kenyon Lords and Saturday night against either Penn State-Behrend or fourth-ranked Calvin College will earn the No. 19 Spartans a berth into the NCAA Final Four in Greensboro, North Carolina, on November 30. https://www.wkyc.com/article/sports/ncaa/case-mens-soccer-team-looks-to-defend-disanto-advance-in-ncaa-tournament/95-615276222

    NCAA Football: General News & Discussion

    Northeast Ohio Small College Football The Strongest In The Nation? Three Huge Games To Showcase Talent Saturday POSTED BY: NEO COLLEGE FB STAFF NOVEMBER 9, 2018 By Douglas S. Campbell Local colleges have enjoyed some of the best football Northeast Ohio has seen in recent memory. Boasting five nationally-ranked football teams this year in NCAA DII and DIII, arguably no other metro area in the U.S. is achieving this level of success in the small college ranks. An hour south of Cleveland, 13-time national champion Mount Union maintains its dominance in NCAA DIII with a #1 ranking. In Cuyahoga County, four teams—John Carroll, Case Western Reserve, Baldwin Wallace, and Notre Dame—are all nationally ranked in the NCAA DII and DIII Top 25 polls. These rankings are especially impressive as there are 250 teams in NCAA DIII and 169 teams in NCAA DII. http://www.neosportsinsiders.com/northeast-ohio-small-college-football-the-strongest-in-the-nation-three-huge-games-to-showcase-talent-saturday/?fbclid=IwAR2e8APMkWJby4XLWp2OXCEOqSo0Pfvka8BOT-5X-2oTEivpLVRvXS9yovc

    Connecticut Western Reserve

    Western Reserve's Hale Farm has a lot of older structures. The main house dates back to 1825, but I think it has origins back to 1810. https://www.wrhs.org/plan-your-visit/hale-farm/ Another reason to visit -- you can go inside most of the houses and structures.

    Cleveland: General Business & Economic News

    Seriously, this is HUGE news! The acquisition, which includes USAA's 529 College Savings Plan, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2019, pending regulatory and shareholder approvals. As an owner / contributor to a USAA 529K plan, I approve of the acquisition on a personal level as well. ?

    Cleveland: Downtown Office Development News

    Proformex of Westlake looking to move offices downtown Updated Oct 29; Posted 7:00 AM By Michael Piskor WESTLAKE, Ohio -- Proformex, based in Westlake, has developed a new automated life insurance software platform that will provide peace of mind to policy owners, as well as to agency firms that manage those insurance policies. Proformex, currently with 24 employees, is set up for life insurance agencies to equip themselves with the tools they need to keep accurate and up to date meta-information on their clients at all times. Information can get lost easily, insurance agents may end up mishandling information or even fail to address a mistake or update in a timely manner. Clients who subscribe to firms that use this software will be better protected and less likely to roll into mishaps on the insurance agent side of the spectrum. Proformex is in the process of moving their office to downtown Cleveland. “With our expected continued growth, we're planning to double that number in the next 18 months. With tremendous growth, we've completely outgrown our space, and are actively seeking new space that will be aligned with our strategic initiatives,” Beck said. https://www.cleveland.com/business/2018/11/proformex-of-westlake-looking-to-move-offices-downtown.html

  11. Biggest game of the season for #16/#19 Case Western Reserve as they travel to #10/#12 Washington & Jefferson. The national website D3football.com wrote a feature on the Spartans...pretty cool as there are 250 teams in DIII. Case finally gets crack at Presidents Posted: Oct 02, 2018 By Joe Sager D3sports.com It’s been nearly three years since they faced each other on the football field, but Case Western Reserve and Washington & Jefferson are pretty familiar with each other. The programs have been among the PAC’s elite, but didn’t actually meet on the gridiron the past two seasons due to the PAC’s unbalanced schedule. So, Saturday’s clash in Washington, Pennsylvania, is the squads’ first encounter since CWRU posted a 35-28 home win on Oct. 24, 2015. Last year, both squads went 8-0 in PAC play and shared the championship. The league’s tiebreaker (strength of conference victories) gave the Presidents the PAC’s automatic bid to the playoffs, while the Spartans earned an at-large berth. They hoped for a showdown in the postseason, but the head-to-head matchup did not materialize. They are two of the PAC favorites this year, too, and enter the game unbeaten – W&J is 5-0 overall and 4-0 in the PAC, while CWRU is 4-0, 3-0. http://www.d3football.com/columns/features/2018/case-finally-crack-at-unseating-presidents

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    So very sad :( Man killed in Cleveland shooting was driven but generous business owner, sister says Updated Oct 3, 4:53 PM; Posted Oct 3, 7:00 AM By Evan MacDonald, cleveland.com, emacdonaldCleveland[/member].com CLEVELAND, Ohio - A Cleveland man shot and killed last month was a driven but caring businessman who also used the rental properties he owned to help people in need, his sister said. Victor Maar Jr. founded a business, Home Restoration Investments, in his mid-20s and owned nine properties in the Greater Cleveland area. He used those properties to give a home to an elderly military veteran, his sister said. Posts on Maar's Facebook page also include stories of his generosity, such as the time he used one of his homes to store heirlooms that belonged to a friend's mother. "He had so much drive, and he cared about his business so much," said his sister, Wendy Streeter. "[His death] is a great loss. Lots of people are really down right now." Maar, 35, was shot and killed Sept. 16 at a duplex he owned on West 146th Street near Mitchell Avenue. The shooting happened after Maar confronted an 18-year-old man and told him to leave the duplex, Streeter said. https://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/10/man_killed_in_cleveland_shooti_2.html

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    ^ This must be a big deal. I’ve had three seperate people text me asking if I had heard about the shooting across from the Westside Market (almost as a “I told you so” from people who don’t think Cleveland is safe)..
