  1. 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

    ^ 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)..
  5. 72 of America's best sailors take on Cleveland in U.S. Sailing's Hinman Trophy championship By Laura Johnston, RocktheLake | Posted September 29, 2018 at 06:49 AM | Updated September 29, 2018 at 06:52 AM CLEVELAND, Ohio – Think of it as a combination of soccer, rugby and chess – six sailboats at a time. Team sail racing is the most dynamic of sailing events, and its U.S. Sailing national championship is in Cleveland this weekend. That means 12 top teams are duking it out at the Old Coast Guard Station for the George R. Hinman Trophy and the chance to enter the 2019 World Sailing Team Racing Championship. The College of Charleston team -- the defending college sailing champs -- called the Old Coast Guard Station fantastic. Sailors from the San Diego said they could be persuaded to become Browns fans. “This is just incredible for Cleveland,” Patterson said. “The goal here by having this event is to showcase Cleveland, the Cleveland Harbor, the Foundry and Lake Erie to the U.S, and the rest of the world and show everybody that we can host some of the greatest racing in the world.” https://www.cleveland.com/expo/news/erry-2018/09/7b6bc3acb27041/72-of-americas-best-sailors-ta.html

  7. The offense is AVERAGING 50 points and 500+ yards a game lead by the newcomer, true freshman QB: A Division III Baker Mayfield? CWRU freshman QB makes strong first impression, too Updated 5:31 AM; Posted 5:30 AM By Mike Peticca CLEVELAND, Ohio -- There's not just one quarterback in Cleveland making a strong first impression in his rookie season. Drew Saxton may never achieve Baker Mayfield's fame, though he aspires for an even more meaningful career. As a true freshman at Division III Case Western Reserve University, it's virtually certain Saxton won't develop into the first pick of the NFL draft, as the Browns made Mayfield. https://www.cleveland.com/sports/index.ssf/2018/09/a_division_iii_baker_mayfield.html

    I love the Little Italy nod. It has to be a reference to the Feast of the Assumption...which occurs in mid-August.

    Bernie, Bernie, Bernie !!! Bernie Moreno sells Mercedes, charter flights, a voting app and more: My Cleveland By Grant Segall, The Plain Dealer | Posted September 20, 2018 at 09:30 AM | Updated September 24, 2018 at 05:39 PM The people who love Cleveland the most are the ones who moved here. Cleveland feels like a traditional small town, but it has everything a big city does. Three sports teams, great orchestra, better theater than Boston. We need to think bigger and take more risks. We should expect more, like in public transportation. We should expect transparency in government. But we should always be cheerleaders for Cleveland. https://www.cleveland.com/expo/life-and-culture/erry-2018/09/12a3bc7c7d3448/bernie-moreno-sells-mercedes-c.html

  13. Agreed. Plus it'll look even more sharp when combined with the now completed Nord Family Greenway.

    Cleveland: Population Trends

    Sounds like they need some help: Puerto Ricans Resettled In Cleveland Still Struggling One Year After Maria AUTHOR Lecia Bushak PUBLISHED September 20, 2018 In Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood at the Spanish American Committee, the last year has seen a flow of people resettling from Puerto Rico — and it’s not stopping anytime soon, says Executive Director Ramonita Vargas. "This organization has seen over 780 families, and over 1800 individuals in the last year and still coming every day," Vargas said. Vargas says many of those 1800 people have applied for housing through Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, but most are still displaced, living out of friends’ basements or shelters, one year later. "10 percent of the people that have come here and put in the application for CMHA have found apartments," Vargas said. "10 percent. And 15 percent have found jobs. But the rest are still just looking, waiting." http://www.ideastream.org/news/puerto-ricans-resettled-in-cleveland-still-struggling-one-year-after-maria
