I agree with Matt and Joe. Although the info may be interesting to some, it really serves no one in a positive way.

Gee, what's next? Is Patch going to print a map of all the licensed gun owners in Stow? Hint: Doing so got a NY paper in a LOT of trouble!

This is a tasteless article! I have family that live in both areas and they are all disgusted that this information is being made into a "story". There's no story here. Good people, morally wealthy people, live in both places!
