Police said the woman was "just blowing off steam" and North Canton City School officials only want the incident documented
The ex-employee of North Canton City Schools who posted a threatening tweet about District Superintendent Michael Hartenstein will not be charged. Hartenstein chose not to file charges against the employee who had been fired for "violation of work rules," — in other words, tweeting while on the clock, said North Canton Police Sgt. Douglas Cardwell. Cardwell said the employee was fired and, once she left school property, she posted a tweet on her public Twitter account along the lines of "That's the last thing he'll ever say to me.

North Canton got a shoutout today from the farcical online newspaper, The Onion
North Canton got a shoutout today from the farcical online newspaper, The Onion. Yup — little ol' us. According to The Onion, presidential candidate Mitt Romney was running through Ohio frantically waving and smiling. And that's the whole story, folks. Well, that's about it until Romney dove through a North Canton bar window and "scrambled to his feet, wolfed down a large plate of pancakes, waved to restaurant patrons for five seconds, furiously stammered out a few words about the economy, stumbled out through the front door, and sprinted in the direction of Youngstown." No, we're not kidding. But The Onion is. North Canton Patch sends its thanks to Twitter follower Jeff Rhodes (@JR_65M) for the heads up about the North Canton name-drop …

The only thing that got Twitter users more worked up than the "one-in-a-lifetime" flyover of the space shuttle Endeavor this week was perhaps the arrival of the new iPhone 5. No, we're not kidding.
