East Liverpool Historical Society



This article is under construction and will be updated as additional information becomes available.

A PLEA: We are addressing this to all East Liverpool HS students, student-athletes, coaches, teachers, school officials and parents to please help us with by providing any information, pictures we could scan and use (we would return said photos) for this series. We feel it is important. This is for the students and student-athletes. The East Liverpool historical Society is over 100 years old and while this site is only 6 years old, this summer (2013), all thinking at the Historical Society is this will be a site that will be around for a very long time. Thus we would like to make it as complete and accurate as possible and we need your help and cooperation in order to do that. Thank you.

Do you have any information? Why not email us at: j.a.alsion@gmail.com



We have a problem and we are not sure exactly how to deal with it yet. At least to date [June 22, 2013] the Review has not published the All Review, All County, AP Eastern Division, etc, items they usually publish at the end of each HS sports period, i.e. Fall Sports, Winter Sports, Spring Sports.

We were told that The Review has sold its sports Department to the Morning Journal. The Review and Morning Journal are and have been owned by the same company for years but they did each have their own sports departments and reporters. Apparently that is now longer the case. The exact impact that may have on Potter Sports coverage in the future we aren't sure of yet. Hopefully very little or none but the transition has apparently had some impact on the Spring Sports end of season wrap-up for 2013.

We relied very heavily on The Review for that type of information for this segment of ELHS Sports. We will see if we can find another source for that information. The result is that perhaps the 2013 Spring Sports wrap-up that this segment really is abut may be seriously lacking this year and that is a shame for the student athletes that participated in this sports this spring.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
