The vice president spoke to about 850 people at the J. Babe Stearn Community Center in Canton Monday
Vice President Joe Biden made a campaign stop in Canton Monday, and, according to local and national media, gave a good verbal wallop to Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney. Biden spoke that afternoon at the J. Babe Stearn Community Center to a crowd of about 850 people. Biden called Romney a "pioneer of outsourcing" and said, if elected president, Romney would eliminate taxes for companies bringing profits home from overseas, according to campaign coverage from Politico. This is what came next: An audience member yelled “Malarkey!” — a word associated with Biden for the time being (ever since his "That's a bunch of malarkey" comment to Paul Ryan during the vice presidential debate Oct. 11). “That’s more than malarkey, that’s deadly,” Biden…

The North Canton Playhouse presents its rendition of the sci-fi cult classic this month at the Auricle Live Music Venue in Canton
The North Canton Playhouse is pushing the limits again — this time with its production of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Get ready for the scantily clad, saucy and always over-the-top characters in this Marci Saling Lesho-directed musical taking place inside the Auricle Live Music Venue in Canton. Here's the synopsis, provided by the North Canton Playhouse in a Patch event listing: That sweet transvestite and his motley crew did the time warp on Broadway in a 25th anniversary revival. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic is more fun than ever. The show debuts at 7 p.m. Saturday. Check here for more show times.

We're always looking for community members to share what they're knowlegable about. For Dr. Joseph Hellmann, that's osteoarthritis.
