Robots battle at Austintown Middle School By JESSICA HARKER

On June 30 the Austintown Fitch Robotics Team, Falco Tech, hosted their fifth annual off season tournament. The Girard High School team, The RoboCats, assisted in hosting the tournament which had 18 teams in attendence from

both Ohio and parts of Pennsylvania. Local schools attending included the Canfield and Warren teams, along with Girard and Austintown. The event was free to attend, but participants were encouraged to bring a donation for a food drive offered during the

competition. The drive benefitted the Second Harvest Food Bank. The competition consisted of teams being broken into alliances, the red and the blue, with three teams in each alliance. “We rank the teams based on their performance in the qualifications rounds. The top six

Local restaurant hosts tasting event The Manor Restaurant will host a Craft Beer and Crepe Tasting on July 14 from 5-7 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Sweet and savory crepes will be featured along with local brewers Paladin Brewing, Biker Brewhouse, Birdfish Brewing Company and Numbers Brewing Company.

teams at the event then are assigned as alliance captains,” explained Andy Yantes, the coach of the Austintown team. Once the captains go through selection three times, each round picking a new team until each alliance has three teams total, the competition begins. Each team’s robot, upon their turn, was placed into the arena and rounds lasted for two and a half minutes each. The goal of the competition was to score the most points by moving the most blocks onto your alliance’s scales before time ran out, and at the end of the tournament the highest scoring teams won. Because the tournament was an off season event, the selection of teams ran differently according to Yantes. “At the offseason event everyone gets selected so everyone has a chance to compete longer in the day,” He said. The winners of the competition this year were Delphi E.L.I.T.E. from Warren, CIA Creativity in Action from Erie, Pa. and WestyTek from Johnstown, Pa.

Concessions were also sold at the event, proceeds from which benefitted the Austintown robotics team. AT&T was also present selling screen protectors during the competition, of which 20 percent of the sales went to the team as well. During the regular season, each robotics team has about six weeks to design and build their robots according to Taylor Baer, a senior at Fitch who has been involved in robotics for six years.

“We have 13 people on the team, we have a pretty small team, we have a core team of about four kids who solely build the robot,” Baer said, “We also have a small design team, small mechanics team so ours is broken up.” According to Baer the team works for four to five hours five days a week during their six week building period to create the robot that functions the way they want. “It’s an amazing program for people to get involved in, we have so many teams in the Northeast Ohio area that its super great competition and you meet a lot of people.” Baer said. Baer has been part of the

FIRST robotics program at the Austintown school district since she was in sixth grade. The program has been running for six years and is currently available for grades Kindergarten through 12th, according to Yantes. “I met my best friend in the program, its just a fun way to get out and meet people and really do a cool thing with robots.” Baer said, “You also get a lot of team working skills because you have to work with a team all the time so its really great.” The local schools take turns hosting the annual tournament according to Yantes, the next tournament will be hosted by Warren G. Harding.

Mordred and King Arthur battle over the thrown June 18 at the Austintown Libraries showing of the Tales of King Arthur.

Local high school students put on the ‘Tales of King Arthur’ By JESSICA HARKER

On June 18, local high school students put on their first production of “The Tales of King Arthur” at the Austintown library. St udent s f rom Ca n f ield, Boardman, Ursuline and Cardinal Mooney volunteered to put on a six person production of the famous story. “We write a different thing each year. We try to focus on some type of area of literature and books so we can partner with the library and get kids interested in reading,” said Brady Bizon, one of the group organizers.

The story follows the trials of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they battle against the Green Knight and other formidable foes. Bizon, who recently graduated from Cardinal Mooney, started the group with Paige Broakway, a senior at Ursuline High School, after the Youngstown Playhouse had to cancel a similar event that both students participated in. According to Bizon the props and backdrops are courtesy of The Dublin Grange Theatre, the director of which he credits with bringing all of the students together for the production.

“We were all just friends, and we know each other from other shows,” Broakway said, “The director kind of brought us all together.” Along with Bizon and Broakway, students Kat Roman, a senior at Canfield High School, Daniel Gordiejew, A freshman at Boardman High School, Clark Hergenrother, a recent graduate from Cardinal Mooney, Megan Broakway, a sophomore at Ursuline High School and Keona Wilkie, a junior at Ursuline High School, all participated in the production. The group has five additional shows planned for this summer.

AGSL memorial tournament benefits local scholarship By JESSICA HARKER

On July 7 and 8 the Austintown Girls Softball team hosted their annual Jessica Morehead memorial tournament in Austintown park. The tournament f unds a scholarship awarded annually to girls pursuing higher education who are part of the AGSL and are in their final year. “Its a great tournament, it helps keeps the memory alive of one of our former players and really is needed in the community,” said Jason Montgomery, the president of the league. The tournament had 14 teams total that were split into three divisions, 9 and under, 12 and under, and 18 and under. Tea ms f rom a rou nd t he area, including a 9U team from Canfield and four Austintown teams, faced a range of competition from both Ohio and PA. The game play took two days, with each team working their way through a bracket for placement. Along with tournament sign up costs, the league had donations for parking, concessions and merchandise for sale throughout the tournament that directly benefitted the scholarship fund.

Winners of this years tournament were the Austintown girls Green Team in the 9U division, Austintown girls Green Team in the 12U division, and Plum, a PA team, winning the 18U division. The tournament and the scholarship were created in honor of Jessica Morehead, a player in the league who died in 2003 after a long battle leukemia. She was 16 at the time. “She had a short period of time where she did experience good health, but after that remission went away and it came back, it came back hard,” said George Podolsky, one of the creators of the scholarship and tournament who coached Jessica, “It was a devastating thing.” Podolsk y, who was good friends of Jessica’s family, said that the amazing thing was Jessica’s attitude throughout her battle and the way the community reacted. “Through the whole process it really gave you some faith in humanity, the Austintown community came together in a way I have never seen before. It really showed the good side of people.” Podolsky said. He described Jessica as someone who always wanted to give back, remembering one in-

stance when she told him her dream when she grew up was to become a doctor to help other children who battle cancer. “When she got sick it was like she went from a 12-year-old to a 20-year-old over night. Now she is digging in and fighting for her life, but she’s still caring about others.” Podolsky said, It was in the spring of 2003, after Jessica passed away, that the idea to start a tournament and scholarship in her name came up. “We came up with the idea that we have great kids in this league, what better way to honor Jessica’s name then to look for the girls in our league who really display the characteristics of Jessica,” Podolsky said, “How can we honor her and help our girls at the same time.” According to Podolsky these characteristics include helpfulness, community service and engagement, as well as their desire to do good in the world. The process for the scholarship money is long, keeping the girls names as anonymous as possible throughout and getting letters from counselors and teachers at their school. The goal, Podolsky said, is to grant money based on who the girls are as people, rather than

athletic ability. “We try to use all of the information to really find good kids,” Podolsky said, “We look for caring, respectful, honest young ladies that act and do what Jessica was doing.” Along with the money the league gets for the scholarship through the tournament, Podolsky said they also have outside supporters that allow them to give out more than one scholarship a year. These supporters included t he You ngstow n Women’s bowling league, who donated funds for a number of years until they were disbanded. After that, James Patterson, of Patterson family eye care, who has coached in the league, began to donate to the fund as well. Depending on the number of girls who are eligible for the scholarship each year, and how much money the league is able to obtain, the amount of scholarship money and number can vary. According to Podolsky the average is two to three scholarships a year, amounting to around $4,000. “It’s been amazing, and I am so excited this has been going on for 16 years,” Podolsky said, “I hope it continues forever.”

Local Dairy Queens host decorating event By ZACK SHIVELY

Local Dairy Queen stores had their annual Father’s Day cake decorating event on June 16. The stores allowed families to purchase and decorate cakes for a personalized treat for Father’s Day. The event occurred at three locations: the Canfield store from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., the Austintown location from 1-4 p.m. and the Cornersburg DQ from 4-7 p.m. “It’s a way to draw a card on an edible cake,” said Chrissy Smith, owner of the stores. She began the program in the 90s when she thought it would be

an interesting idea. They have done the event annually each year since then. The store provided three different sized cakes, an eight inch round cake, a 10 inch round cake and a 10 by 24 inch cake. Each of the treats were plain white cakes with borders. The families began at one station where they airbrushed on the cake using any of the six colors available at the event. The attendees used ribbons, gels and sprinkles to add more to their decorations. They could also choose different images to place on the cake and start from there.

Go to the Austintown library on July 14 at 3 p.m. to play games like “Ticket to Ride,” “Settlers of Catan” and “Carcassonne.” Play what’s there or bring your own to share. Light refreshments will be served. This event is for adults and teens.

A dozen makes a difference The Austintown library wants their materials being used by the community. Help them empty their shelves during July by borrowing our books, movies and other items. Each time you check out a dozen or more items, you will help them create a masterpiece by adding a square to their “Starry Night” mosaic poster. This event is for all ages.
