The following information was supplied by the North Canton Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
A North Canton woman called police about 9:50 a.m. Tuesday to report that a video of a local 16-year-old boy in the bath tub had been posted all over Facebook and YouTube that day. Five 15- and 16-year-olds were involved in the making and posting of the video, according to a call-for-service entry from the North Canton Police Department. Police contacted the Stark County Prosecutor's Office, which said no crime was committed because the boy's genitals were not exposed in the video.

Kent native Lucy Merriman attends Kent State University for free, but she’s so upset about the new “ambition penalty” to be charged to fellow students taking more than 17 credit hours that she spent nearly 12 hours Monday protesting the move. Merriman, a freshman Honors College student, staged the first of two protests set for this week outside the suite of university administrative offices located at the Kent State Library. Not long after arriving at 9 a.m. Merriman learned President Lester Lefton was not in his office Monday. But that didn’t deter her and numerous other concerned students from talking with passers-by about the new fee structure and encouraging them to sign a petition started by student Michael Crowley, whose group will …

We want to spotlight your photography on our Facebook page
Facebook Timeline is here and North Canton Patch is eager some new art to adorn the top of its Facebook page. We've now got a great fireworks shot from contributor Rob Netro, but we'd like to spotlight some photography from our viewers. So, here's what we want you to do (pretty please): Upload your photos to our Pics & Clips gallery (previously the Neighborhood Gallery). Make sure the title of the photo is "Facebook cover photo" so we take it into consideration. Then what we'll do is feature a new photo each week. So, do you have a great shot of your favorite Hoover High School athlete in action? Your most-frequented business in town? Some scenery from a local park? Let's see'em!

What are your strengths? What would you do in this situation? What's your educational background? Why do you want this job? Oh, and one last thing ... What's your Facebook username and password? A New York City statistician was just asked that question during an interview, and he chose not to reveal the information, according to a Huffington Post story. More companies are starting to ask for login information for Facebook profiles, but is it fair?

Blogging is really picking up on North Canton Patch, and we don't want you to miss one.
