— A Kent student is starting a beer delivery service around campus. He should network with pot dealers... to find the best routes, of course. (Kent Wired)

— New charges were brought against longtime Russo friend Ronald Romanini after Frank sang some songs to the FBI. (

— 28 were indicted in a sweeping cocaine operation bust in Ashtabula. If you're dealer isn't answering your pre-St. Patrick's Day phone calls, you know why. (NewsNet5)
