Week in Review: Arrests, Startup Buses and the 2010 Census
Here's a list of stories from North Canton Patch that you just can't miss
1. Jackson Township police arrested two men in connection with a recent Stark State bomb threat. And North Canton police arrested one man who allegedly rode through the city in a stolen truck then ran from them once he was pulled over.
2. We said goodbye to our columnist Kelly MJ Andrews, who soon will move out of the Patch. Check out Kelly’s last column here.
3. 2010 Census numbers arrived, and we found North Canton’s population rose 7 percent. The number of blacks or African-Americans nearly doubled, too. Interested in other North Canton statistics? Compare the charts in the story we ran this week.
4. We had our first letter to the editor, written by Hoover High School senior Lucas Rife. Every year Lucas raises money for Akron Children’s Hospital, and this year he’s come very close to $10,000 — with the help of fellow students in the North Canton City School District.
5. We launched our newest feature, “You Said It!” Each week we’ll ask people around North Canton one question and feature those in our “You Said It!” video column. Here’s our latest one.
6. We got a great response to our “Patch Picks” story this week, which featured five local summer camps. Haven’t shared your opinion yet? No problem! Let us know which camp is your favorite.
7. Stark County entrepreneurs Scott Meier and Jeff SKI Kinsey departed from Cleveland at the beginning of the week on the Startup Bus, one of six buses bound for the South by Southwest Conference in Austin, TX. Read more about what Meier and Kinsey hope to accomplish through the trip.
