Ohio State shows resiliency in win over Michigan State

I’ve been pretty critical of the Ohio State men’s basketball team over the past few weeks, but I must admit their win over Michigan State on Sunday was very impressive. They were down by 15 points in the first half and looked dead, but showed a great deal of resiliency in the second half.

COLLECTING FOR THE NEEDY – The Malone University football team is collaborating with the YWCA Emergency Shelter program and area moving companies in an all out effort to help greater Canton area individuals transition out of emergency housing. Collection day is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Anyone wishing to make a donation must live in the greater Canton area and schedule in advance for a home pick-up time by calling the Canton YWCA at 330-453-7644. Members of the football team will provide the “muscle,” volunteering their time to carry, load, and unload larger items.

Items will be taken to the YWCA’s warehouse and later distributed to persons as they transition from the emergency shelter to more permanent housing. Collections can also be scheduled throughout the year by calling the YWCA at 330.453.7644.

There is an ongoing need for furniture including dressers, beds, mattresses in good condition, headboards, chairs, couches, dinettes and tables, as well as household items. No large appliances will be accepted.

Those wishing to donate new or used furniture, or to make a monetary donation can call Theresa Ponchak at 330.453.7644, extension 104.

CBJ NEEDS PATIENCE WITH NASH – The Columbus Blue Jackets need to rebuild and I’m not sure Rick Nash as captain is the best way for them to get there.

But with Nash signed through 2017, the team needs to wait to find a great deal before trading him. Patience is a good thing.
