Judith these are just some stories they pulled from the region that they thought were interesting. Probably has to do with SEO as well. Last night I went out at 11 pm and saw someone laying on my neighbor's lawn. I said "are you ok?" and got no answer. I was headed out for 45 mins so was going to call the cops if he was still there when I got back, but he was gone. I hate drunk people. I live in Stow, not a college party town!!!!
