Someone broke into a Mentor school bus during a game against Cleveland Heights High School Saturday at Denison Park. One soccer player wants to find a pin her late grandmother gave her, and her family is offering a big reward.
During the Cleveland Heights vs. Mentor girls soccer game on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Denison Park, someone broke into the Mentor team's bus and stole several items. Cleveland Heights Police found many of the stolen items around the park. But a few are still missing, and one Mentor family is offering a $500 reward for their daughter's missing Mentor letterman jacket and angel pin. Chuck Birchall Jr. said the pin was a gift from his daughter's grandmother, and though it is not worth much at a store, it is extremely sentimental. His daughter indicated she didn't care about the jacket — she just wants the pin back. The 2013 Mentor letterman jacket is red with white sleeves, has Mentor soccer and track on the back, Samantha is written on the edge…

Tell us what you think.
Some residents have a bone to pick with the City of Cleveland Heights — they want the dog ban lifted from city parks. Cleveland Heights resident Fran Mentch encouraged citizens to attend the June 18 City Council meeting to support the idea of allowing leashed, furry friends in parks. And resident Kerri Whitehouse had a suggestion — remove the ban for six months to a year in Cain Park as a trial period, with the ultimate goal of allowing dogs in all Cleveland Heights parks. Whitehouse, who is a member of the Cain Park Neighborhood Association and chair of the Dog Project Committee, said permitting dogs would promote safety in parks and reduce crime, two of the primary goals of the Cain Park group. And she mentioned other benefits. Dogs …

Cleveland Heights will add trees and paths to the park and remove Denison Pool, which closed a few years ago due to low attendance
On Feb. 7, 2011, Cleveland Heights City Council approved several renovations at Denison Park, which included removing the old Denison Pool. That work will now begin soon, and the city hopes the next phase of the Denison Park project is complete sometime this summer. Part of the plans included installing a new artificial turf soccer field, which was dedicated in August 2011. Council members gave City Manager Robert Downey the go-ahead to advertise for bids to demolish the old pool, which closed due to low attendance, and landscape the area at its meeting Feb. 21. Landscape architecture firm Behnke Associates developed the plans, which include adding dozens of new trees, more walking paths and picnic tables. The city will keep the clubhouse…

First-half deficit too much for Tigers
The Cleveland Heights girls' soccer team allowed two goals in the last four minutes of the first half, giving West Geauga a 4-1 halftime advantage that the Wolverines protected for a 5-3 victory on Monday night at Denison Park. “At the end of the half, we didn’t finish as well as we should have,” Cleveland Heights head coach Robbie Helfgott said. “We left a few things open across the back line, and they were able to capitalize.” After building a 2-0 lead off of goals by Maria May and Taylor Tercek, the Tigers struck back with 8:20 left in the half. Arion Jackson split two defenders with a beautiful entry pass into the box and Kalah Saunders finished with a perfect lob over the goalie and into the back of the net, cutting the Tiger deficit…

The new soccer field at the Cleveland Heights park was used for the first time Wednesday night
Mayor Ed Kelley and members of city council gathered at Denison Park Wednesday night to dedicate the city's new field. The plan to build a new artificial turf field was approved by council in spring 2010, and the city asked Marous Brothers Construction to build the field at the price of $655,000. The bill was picked up by taxpayers who passed Issue 27 in 2004 and also includes cleaning up Denison Pool, which is no longer in use. Crews broke ground in April. The old field was dedicated in September 1999 and made of natural grass. The new field is made out of "high-end" artificial turf, which is safer, provides more cushion and athletes can play on it rain or shine.

Those in the CHUH School District who are not Cleveland Heights residents will have lower non-resident fees for the field house
Cleveland Heights residents will receive an updated parks and recreation guide in the mail this week detailing the programs the city offers. That guide will include changes to fees for some programs passed by City Council at Monday night's meeting. Councilwoman Cheryl Stephens read the ordinance, and said that there were no significant changes to the rates or regulations with the exception of passes for people who are in the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District but are not Cleveland Heights residents. "We're decreasing non-resident fees to the field house ... so we encourage more people to use our rec center," Stephens said. The field house pass includes the basketball courts and workout facility in the Community …
