The township will connect the park to Goehring Road—and maybe add a ball field.
Cranberry has plans in the works to expand the southern portion of North Boundary Park. At Thursday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, officials voted 3-1 to approve sales agreements between the township and the executor of the estate of Marjorie M. Reynolds for two parcels of land totaling 6.37 acres along Goehring Road for the price of $555,000. The money for the purchase was budgeted in the 2013 capital improvement budget, according to township manager Jerry Andree. “It was a very successful acquisition,” he said. Supervisor Dave Root voted against the motion, saying he did not approve of the township buying property after Cranberry raised taxes by 2.35 mils in 2012. Officials held the line on taxes in 2013. “I realize it’s really …

A ceremony was held Sunday at North Boundary Park.
On Sunday, Cranberry honored those who served in the military with a special program before the stone veteran’s memorial at North Boundary Park. “This event is just spectacular every year,” said Cranberry Supervisor Dick Hadley, who is the township’s liaison to Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #897. Master of ceremonies Phil Stebler, of VFW Post #897, introduced this year’s guest speaker, Stephen Mihalacki, a retired Army captain and a Cranberry resident.

American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of the Greater Cranberry Township Area lasts 24 hours this weekend.
When Robert Faulkner’s wife, Sharon, was diagnosed with brain cancer in November 2009, a devastating and frustrating chapter opened in both their lives. “As a caregiver, you can give as much as you can give and you can love as much as you can love, but you still feel inadequate,” said Falkner. Then a friend who was a co-worker and cancer survivor told him about the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, and Faulkner discovered the event could help him believe “he could do something.” Faulkner will be among the 41 teams composed of more than 500 participants in this weekend’s American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of the Greater Cranberry Township Area. Relay for Life is a 24-hour event that celebrates cancer survivorship and raises …

Life doesn't stop just because there's snow on the ground. Check out our video and gallery of photos on what's happening around Cranberry.
While many commuters slogged through the snowy weather on their way to work, others took advantage of the flakes -- and canceled school classes -- to hit the sledding hill at North Boundary Park in Cranberry. Antonio Amelio took a wild ride down the hill at the park, but don't just take our word for it. Watch as he and a friend, Olivia Neuman, careen down the slope. Did you have any adventures during Wednesday's snowy weather? We want to see them. Add your photos and video to the gallery below.

Bundled in snowsuits and winter jackets, children and adults climb the hill at North Boundary Park with a sled dragging behind or a snowboard in hand. The snow crunches underneath their boots and their pants swish with each step. Reaching the top, they sit on their sleds or strap into their snowboards and speed down the hill for a well-deserved six- or seven-second ride. The screams of girls and shouts of boys carry through the snow-covered soccer field and water park. "Yeah, baby, yeah!" a boy exclaimed after his first ride to the bottom while his parents look on with worried smiles. With the warmer temperatures, the snow is starting to melt and small grassy patches dot the hill, but the kids are taking advantage of the snow that remains…
