  • Stark Area Regional Transit Authority is looking to apply for more than $11 million in federal funds to build a similar system along Mahoning Road. At least six miles in length, the service would connect SARTA's Cornerstone station with the Wal-Mart on Atlantic Boulevard NE, complementing the long-planned Mahoning Road corridor. SARTA Executive Director Kirt Conrad told the agency's board members Wednesday night that the Federal Transit Administration has announced it is accepting applications for $250 million in federal grants until the end of February to fund Bus Rapid Transit systems similar to the Euclid corridor.

Frank Corbi

  • 15 photos
  • Frank Corbi, who was Tusky Valley High School's band and choral director for 31 years and a well-known jazz saxophone player, died Thursday in Cary, N.C. He was 87. Corbi and his wife, Carol, moved to Cary, located near Raleigh, in 1994. There, he teamed with a trio of young jazz musicians and formed the Corbi-Thompson Quartet. "I'm really the senior citizen in this group," Corbi said in 1999. "The guys always tell me, "You play your horn like you're 20, so just keep doing it." Frank's son, Chris, who is principal at East Canton High School, said his father "had a compassion and love for kids that went beyond a band director. I used to hang out with him at school, which is how I learned to love education and teaching."

Waynesburg House Fire

  • Photos provided by Jim McDermott of the Malvern Fire Department and Michael Balash of the Repository. WAYNESBURG Village Councilwoman Sherry Betts appears to have lost her home Wednesday afternoon due to a fire that severely damaged the 1 1/2-story structure at 203 E. Lisbon St. Along with members of the Waynesburg Fire Department, firefighters from the Malvern, Magnolia and Sandy Township fire departments also battled the blaze. "I don't know how the fire started, that is the only thing I can say," said Betts, who was not home when the fire broke out. As of Wednesday afternoon, firefighters at the scene had not pinpointed a cause. "I dont know if she left anything on," said Assistant Chief Dave Sickafoose of the Waynesburg department. It was apparent the house has extensive damage as firefighters removed some of the siding, and carried charred items and furnishings outside. Interior walls, visible from outside, were covered with soot. "I think it started in the basement," said Richard Dierick, a Waynesburg firefighter, "It burned the steps going to the first floor. Then it burned the stairs going to the second floor. It went all the way to the roof. That house is pretty well gutted." Dierick also is a member of Village Council. ****Note**** Firefighters were called back when a second fire was discovered at the same home early Thursday morning.

Christopher Anderson Murder

  • 19 photos
  • Community Coalition Against Violence held a peace rally and Vigil for Christopher J. Anderson at City Hope Church in Canton. Christopher Anderson was beaten to death by three men. Canton police say the Sunday morning beating was caught on a neighborhood Crime Watch video and they're using the tape to help identify Anderson's attackers. Anderson, who lived in the 1400 block of Rowland Avenue NE, was walking south on Rowland about a block from his home before 1 a.m. Sunday when a car carrying at least three men pulled up after turning onto Rowland Avenue from 14th Street NE, the video shows. Anderson appears on the video to have sensed he was in danger and is seen running north away from the vehicle. The video then shows one of the three men tackling Anderson at the southwest corner of Rowland and 14th. The three began beating Anderson - about 30 yards south of his home. "It is really vicious," said Capt. Bruce Lawver, a Canton police detective. "This man was beaten by three individuals. From all indications we get, he was a good guy. We have nothing to indicate this was brought on by the victim." SEE the Neighborhood Watch VIDEO on
