  Ode To Boardman Stadium: Part II  
  No Pomp, Pageantry For Site That Served The Boardman For 73 Years:   October 29, 2014 Edition  
     Boardman High School’s football team gave old Boardman Stadium a great send-off last Friday night when Joe Ignazio’s Spartans pinned a 21-13 defeat on Canton McKinley.
      A sparse crowd saw Boardman defeat the Pups for the first time since 1995, and there was no pomp and pageantry to usher the old stadium out after it had faithfully served the community for 73 years.
      The first game at the stadium was played on Nov. 15, 1941, the day after Armistice Day, when the Spartans, under Head Coach Rib Allen, defeated Sebring, 21-7, to win the Little Brown Jug.
      According to Boardman Local Schools Director of Operations, Tim Saxton, the Spartans will open play next season in their new stadium on the campus of Boardman High School. That would be the second game of the season, set for Fri., Sept. 4 against Cardinal Mooney.

  After 73 Years, Final Game At Boardman Stadium:   October 29, 2014 Edition  
     Boardman High School’s Spartans closed out their 73-year reign at Boardman Stadium with a beat down 21-13 victory over an uncharacteristic 3-6 Canton McKinley Bulldogs last Friday night before a sparse crowd. It was the second straight home win for the Spartans, who moved to 2-7 on the season under second-year head coach Joe Ignazio.
      Boardman entered the game with a goal of holding the Pups 1000-yard rusher, Eric Glover-Williams, to less than 100 yards on the night and the Spartans defense exceeded that goal, limiting the McKinley team to less than 100 yards on the ground. The Bulldogs managed just 85 yards over the turf in the game, and Glover-Williams was held to just 44 yards on 13 tries.
      While the Spartans defense sparkled, including three fumble recoveries, so did their offense, piling-up 335 yards rushing, led by Mario Graziani, who peppered the Bulldogs for 192 yards and t...Read More >>
  Rusu, Meacham, Robb Clearly The Best Candidates  
  October 23, 2014 Edition  
     On Tues., Nov. 4, voters will cast their ballots in the general elections.
      In this election, three races draw particular interest---those for the Mahoning County Probate Court, Mahoning County Auditor and Seventh District Court of Appeals.
      Seeking to retain the seat he was appointed to by Gov. John Kasich is Judge Robert Rusu. He is opposed by Democrat Susan Maruca, former law office partner with County Dem Chair Dave Betras, who last week found a suspected pipe bomb outside a window of his Canfield law office.
      The race for Probate Court stands as a no-brainer. There is only one qualified candidate, and that is not Maruca. Her peers in the Mahoning County Bar Association did not recommend her for election, as the bar did not six years ago when she ran for the same seat.
      Vote for Judge Robert Rusu. He stands...
