The longtime Cleveland Cavaliers announcer spoke at the annual dinner, held this year at Skyland Pines Banquet Center
Joe Tait — aka "The Voice of Cleveland" — spoke Friday at the Hoover Hoops Tip-Off Dinner and got a chance to meet with athletes as well as coaches. In this pic of the day, you can see Tait with basketball coach Jim York. Looking for more photos from Friday's dinner? Check out this post by North Canton Patch blogger Courtney Oberlin and feel free to add your own photos. Coach Randy Motgomery had talked to Patch in October about the excitement of having the radio announcer in town. "Probably the biggest thing about him is his longevity," Montgomery said then.

A Patch viewer submitted this stellar photo of Hoover High students showing their school spirit at the Hoover vs. GlenOak game Friday night
Eye black. Body paint. Viking horns. Perfect ingredients for a North Canton Patch "pic of the day," wouldn't you say? Patch viewer Julie Mathie-Cross added this photo to our Hoover High vs. GlenOak High School football gallery this weekend, and we were eager to share the great shot. The students "blacked out" for the game, which also happened to be senior night. And also happened to end in a Hoover High Viking win. (Hoover won 33-20.) It's not too late to submit your game photos, either. Just click here to get started.

North Canton Patch snapped this picture Monday, showing the start of walls and a roof that have been erected at the construction site next to Handel's ice cream. The restaurant is slated to open in the first quarter of 2013. When North Canton Patch broke the news of the new restaurant heading to Washington Square, this is what we heard from Patch readers on our site: On a related note, the North Canton Planning Commission recently approved a parking lot for customers and employees at the new building.

We spotted this colorful sight at the Stark County Fair on opening day. But there's more where that came from. Check back with North Canton Patch for more fair pics this week!
Let's be honest here: There's tons to see at the Stark County Fair. Tons. While out and about Tuesday, Patch contributor Rob Netro spotted several things of interest: ornery goats, larger-than-life horses (and the little girls on tippy-toes who were just dying to touch their noses!), older folks catching up with one another in the shade, senators, hummingbirds, you name it. But this pic of Courtney Czarniak of FX Studio touching up a sign was Rob's favorite. Czarniak attended the fair with Lauren Toohey of Peacock Creations. The two will be at the fair through Sept. 3. The women specialize in elaborate face painting, hair flare and makeovers. Check back with North Canton Patch later this week (we hear Rob's going to have a blog post with …
