The latest: Perry High candy illness spreading

The number of students who had adverse reactions after eating candy brought to Perry High School Wednesday morning has grown to about 20.

Five of the students were taken to a hospital, said Police Chief Michael Pomesky, while other students were being checked. Emergency crews from Perry and Jackson townships and the city of Massillon were called to the school when students became ill with accelerated heart rates and dilated pupils after eating the candy.

As of 1 p.m., medics were still being called to the school as more students were developing symptoms.

Pomesky said the candy was being sent to the Stark County Crime Lab for testing to determine if it was laced with any substance.

Students who were not transported to hospitals by emergency crews were given the option for a parent or legal guardian to take them for medical treatment. Many of the parents were taking their child to a hospital.

I was comfortable talking about basketball — but that came natural. It was much harder to share personal stuff, and looking back now I know I could have really benefited from having someone to talk to over the years. But I didn’t share — not to my family, not to my best friends, not in public. Today, I’ve realized I need to change that. I want to share some of my thoughts about my panic attack and what’s happened since. If you’re suffering silently like I was, then you know how it can feel like nobody really gets it. Partly, I want to do it for me, but mostly, I want to do it because people don’t talk about mental health enough. And men and boys are probably the farthest behind.

Keeping Carts Off The Streets!

When it comes to cleaning the streets of Canton, its not drugs, guns or violence littering the sidewalks... it's shopping carts. Canton City Council will vote on an ordinance, Monday, to help collect shopping carts. Councilmen Jason Scaglione and Robert Fisher said the abandoned carts are an eyesore and safety hazard to drivers. The original ordinance penalized business owners for stolen carts left around the city. Mayor Thomas Bernabei helped revise a "good, realistic" ordinance that recognizes stores as victims of theft.
