On Tuesday December 12th, history was made as the Suffield Township Board of Trustees held their first regularly scheduled trustee meeting in the confines of the spacious Fire House Community Room.  Trustee Jeff Eldreth opened his part of the meeting by saying, "I'm just excited to be here".  He honored outgoing trustee Dave Vartenuk by acknowledging Vartenuk's integral part in getting the Fire House and the Community Room built.  The decision to place a levy on the ballot in order to build the facility was during the tenures of trustees Dave Polen, Ron Mishler and Dave Vartenuk.   In all, the event was witnessed by seven hearty soles who braved the snow covered roads and the 17 degree temperature.  

Aside from the excitement of the new surroundings, the meeting produced little entertainment, though Vickie Vincent did bring Christmas cookies.  A discussion on the progress on demolishing the house at 1560 Carriage House Drive took place.  While the zoning inspector was absent due to illness, trustee Dave Vartenuk said that the latest plan from the county prosecutor's office is to have a meeting with the new owners of the property, along with officials from the county building department, county health department and the Suffield Fire Department.  This meeting, yet to be scheduled, will take place at the site.  A Carriage House Drive neighbor Bernie Trares said that the new owners have mowed the property and have placed "No Trespassing" signs on the property.   

Tom Calcei reported that all is well at the Fire Department.  He also said that the ambulance that is in need of a new paint job is now being worked on.  A rental substitute ambulance should be here and available shortly.  He also said that  Christmas With Santa was a very successful event this past Sunday evening. 

The trustees made another slight change to their meeting schedule.  The second meeting of this month will now be held on Friday December 29th at 7:00 PM.  This is a change from the original time set several weeks ago.

Jeff Eldreth welcomed Ed Vincent back after his recent bout with cancer.  After extensive treatment, Ed has responded well and is now cancer free. The crowd erupted in applause after the announcement. The trustees will meet again on Friday December 29th at 7:00 PM.  The Zoning Commission will meet on Wednesday December 13th at 7:00 PM.  Now that the Administration Building has been leased out, ALL township meetings will be held in the Fire House Community Room.

Local High School Basketball Scores & Schedules

Mogadore Lose Regional Final Title Game 63-51, Field Boys Season Ends At Alliance 66-54,

The Mogadore Wildcats (20-7) storybook season came to an end on Saturday March 16th at the Canton Fieldhouse.  A much taller team that plays a much more difficult schedule, Cleveland Heights  mowed down the Wildcats by a 63-51 score.  Mogadore fell behind early and trailed 28-6 in the second quarter.  To Mogadore's credit, the Wildcats clawed back, but the task was just too difficult to manage.  The closest that game was after the first quarter was ten points.  Lukas Swartz had 15 points and junior Dylan Jones had one of his best scoring nights, netting 14 points.

On Tuesday February 26th, the Field Falcon (4-19) saw their season come to an end with a 66-54 loss to the Aviators in Alliance.  The Falcons hung with the Aviators through most of the game and trailed by only six with about four minutes to play when Carter Baumbarger picked up several offensive fouls along with technical fouls on Baumbarger and coach Dominique Sanders.  The deficit ballooned to eleven points and that pretty much ended the season for the Falcons.  Jaheim James scored 22 points while Jacob Lupardus added 12.   

 

Field Girls End Season At Norton 53-15, Mogadore Girls End Season At Mapleton 63-22

On Thursday February 21st the Field Falcons (15-9) went to Norton to play for the Sectional championship.  The Falcons were ambushed in a big way, losing to the Panthers by a 53-15 score. The Falcons ended the year with a fine 15-9 record overall and 6-8 in the Portage Trail Conference Metro Division.

On Wednesday February 21st the Mogadore girls ended their season with a 63-22 loss to Ashland Mapleton.  No Wildcats scored in double figures.  Mogadore finished 2-21 on the year, including 0-12 in the PTC County Division.  On a more cheerful note, the Wildcats had no seniors this season and only one junior.  This may bode well for the Wildcats next year.
