I, Mitch Cooper, will be the new face of Solon Patch!
Dear Solon, Hi! You may not know me, but I know you. My name is Mitch Cooper and I used to be the local editor for Twinsburg Patch. Well, now, after five months, I'm back at Twinsburg and am also running Solon Patch. There's been some shifting around of personnel in Ohio and I've been assigned to to be the eyes and ears and whatever else in Solon.

Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (330)-212-2241 …

You must, at some point, switch classes in school to baffle the teachers. Everyone wants to believe twins share some extra-sensory power, like ESP or something. I’m an identical twin (and the Patch Editor in neighboring Solon) so I figured I would use the opportunity of the annual Twins Days festival to share my perspective on what being a twin is like. This is a difficult thing to do. I can’t imagine what it’s like to not be a twin, just the way singletons (that’s the twin word for all of you non-multiples out there) can’t imagine what it’s like to have a twin. So I’ll do it by telling …
