Nichols said students' extra access to the superintendent is proven to improve connectedness throughout schools
Students and parents in Cuyahoga Falls will have one more avenue to engage with the head of the school district. Superintendent Todd Nichols recently signed up for Twitter (follow him at @CFTMN) and says the extra access is proven to improve connectedness throughout schools. At a recent Cuyahoga Falls School Board meeting, Nichols said he has gotten some great ideas about school connectedness from the book "Getting Smart" by Tom Vander Ark, which concentrates on "the digital world and digital delivery." In reading the book, Nichols had been preparing for a trip to Bowling Green State University, where he would sit on a dissertation defense from one of his former administrators. "The dissertation is on school connectedness and the …

Cuyahoga Falls, Stow-Munroe Falls High School rivalry devolves into war of words on Twitter.
When the Cuyahoga Falls Black Tigers (1-8, 0-4) visit the neighboring Stow-Munroe Falls Bulldogs (3-6, 0-4) on Friday, there won't be a league championship at stake, just pride. But a recent spate of Twitter posts with the hash tag of "#rapestow has touched off controversy and amped up hard feelings, at least online. The administration of the Cuyahoga Falls City School District finds itself in a tight spot. Superintendent Todd Nichols wouldn't say what, if any, disciplinary action would be taken against students found to have participated in the Twitter hashtagging. "Mainly because it's in a touchy area," Nichols said. "It's on social media, it's outside of school, it's those kinds of things. So we are engaged with our students in …

After realizing she spends thousands of dollars annually on her pets, your Local Leash columnist lists five ways to save money and still support a furry family.
Until now, I've resisted doing the math on how much my pets actually cost me monthly. For the sake of this column, dear readers, here it is: One dog, two cats, two seniors, two cases of arthritis, one case of feline asthma, one case of feline hyperesthesia and one case of feline herpes of the eye = $382 per month. That number is very sobering. It adds up to over $4,500 a year and it only includes food, medicine and vitamin supplements. It doesn't account for vet visits, like the $300 we spent on the dog's teeth cleaning, heartworm test and suspicious lump removals last month (they were benign, thankfully), or the $35 I just spent on the new, softer bed for the arthritic cat. It also doesn't include the very large, bulk purchase of super-…
