Twinsburg has plans to build two roundabouts on Route 91, but many residents oppose the idea.
Solon's southern neighbors are having a debate about improving traffic on Route 91. City officials in Twinsburg have plans to build two roundabouts on 91, one at Glenwood Drive and the other at Meadowood Boulevard. The first roundabout, at Glenwood, is expected to be built in 2014, with the second one following three years later. Twinsburg officials say data shows roundabouts are safer and keep traffic flowing better than traditional intersections. The problem? Most of the Twinsburg residents who attended a public meeting at Dodge Intermediate School didn't buy it. Twinsburg Councilman Ted Yates, who led the presentation for the city, told concerned residents that city council also still has questions about the plans and that it's not a "…

A 30-year-old Twinsburg woman found a wallet with lots of cash. Guess what she did? She returned it
A 30-year-old Twinsburg woman found a wallet with $4,600 in it. And guess what she did? She gave it back. The woman, who has not yet been identified, returned the wallet this morning to the Solon Police Department, which was able to return it to its rightful (and very relieved) owner. "Needless to say, he is very happy," said Lt. Bruce Felton with Solon Police. The man works at a Solon business. His identity has not been disclosed because he generally carries lots of cash with him because of the work he does and doesn't want that info becoming common knowledge, Felton said.
