Parents and students living in the “Walk Zone” can pre-plan which route to take with the Safe Routes Hudson map at http://bit.ly/2wSL7ZR.
Helmets, reflective clothing and cautious walking and riding are encouraged, and there will be parent volunteers and an increased police presence in the neighborhoods surrounding Hudson schools.
Subway robber sought
GREEN: The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a robbery at a Subway in Green at about 8:30 p.m. Monday.
A man entered the restaurant at 3471 Massillon Road and handed the cashier a note that said he had a weapon and to give him cash. The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of money. An employee called 911 and the sheriff’s office responded.

Ride shows up drunk at jail
CANTON: Police say a Stark County woman drunkenly drove to a sheriff’s office after receiving a call to pick up her boyfriend, who had already been arrested for drunken driving.
News 5 Cleveland reports a sergeant at the Stark County Sheriff’s Office talked to the woman, Brandi Rae Coen, 29, by phone last week and told her that her boyfriend, Kristopher Fox, 23, wanted her to pick him up.
The sheriff’s office says the sergeant noticed she sounded drunk and advised her not to drive if she had been drinking.
Authorities say she drove to the office anyway and was given a breath test that measured her blood alcohol level at twice the legal limit.
They say she had two children, ages 5 and 9, in the car.
