The following was obtained from Cuyahoga Falls police reports dated Jan. 9-10. It does not indicate a conviction.
Not that kind of girl A Cuyahoga Falls woman knew something was amiss when 100 people called her on Jan. 6 looking for a "good time." According to a Cuyahoga Falls police report, the surge of gentlemen callers was no fluke; it appears someone created a "Casual Encounters" Craigslist ad using the woman's name and phone number without her permission. The woman became aware of the ad on Jan. 9, called police and said she had a suspect; however, the initial lead didn't pan out, said Falls Police Lt. Steve Guldeman.

Cuyahoga Falls Mayor Don Robart discussed the retail projects Monday with the Akron Beacon Journal.
Mayor Don Robart confirmed Monday that developer Stark Enterprises is close to finalizing a set of deals that would bring a 10-screen Cinemark movie theatre to the proposed Portage Crossing site, a Menards to Graham Road and a new Get-Go to Portage and State Roads, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Original plans called for Menards and Giant Eagle to anchor Portage Crossing, but plans were sidetracked in November after Stark and Cuyahoga Falls officials were unable to clear room for the proposed 240,000-square-foot, two-story home improvement store when the owner of a nearby Pizza Hut refused to sell his land. New plans under discussion may lead to the demolition of the Graham Road Giant Eagle to make room for a scaled-back, one-story …

Measures to move each project forward were approved by Cuyahoga Falls City Council at its regular meeting on Monday night.
The Cuyahoga Falls City Council approved a rezoning ordinance on Monday night that will help pave the way for the much-anticipated Portage Crossing project. Council voted 10-1 on the measure with Councilwoman Carol Klinger casting the dissenting vote. In doing so, the former State Road Shopping Center site has been rezoned from MU-4 (mixed-use "suburban corridor") to C-1 "Commercial District" to better conform with the actual land use that developer Stark Enterprises envisions, according to Fred Guerra, the city’s planning and zoning director. Stark requested the zoning change earlier this summer because construction of the new Menards and Giant Eagle anchor stores would most likely be hampered by mixed use development guidelines. When …
