After graduation Smith became a hospital intern, and for two years he was able to stay busy enough to refrain from heavy drinking. He married Anne Robinson Ripley (Anne Ripley Smith) on January 25, 1915, and opened up his own office in Akron, Ohio, specializing in colorectal surgery and returned to heavy drinking. Recognizing his problem, he checked himself into more than a dozen hospitals and sanitariums in an effort to stop his drinking. He was encouraged by the passage of Prohibition in 1919, but soon discovered that the exemption for medicinal alcohol and bootleggers (Rum-running) could supply more than enough to continue his excessive drinking. For the next 17 years his life revolved around how to subvert his wife’s efforts to stop his drinking and obtain the alcohol he craved while trying to hold together a medical practice in order to support his family and his drinking.

"Ripper" Owens''' (born on September 13, 1967 in Akron (Akron, Ohio), Ohio) is an American heavy metal (Heavy metal music) singer who currently performs with Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force and Charred Walls of the Damned.

He took the nickname "Ripper" from the Judas Priest song "The Ripper" during his time in the tribute band "British Steel". The river is a relatively recent geological formation, formed by the advance and retreat of ice sheets during the last ice age. The final glacial (glacier) retreat, which occurred 10,000–12,000 years ago, caused changes in the drainage pattern near Akron (Akron, Ohio). This change in pattern caused the originally southward-flowing Cuyahoga to flow to the north. As its newly reversed currents flowed toward Lake Erie, the river carved its way around glacial debris left by the receding ice sheet, resulting in the river's winding U-shape. These meanderings stretched the length of the river (which was only 30 miles (50 km) when travelled directly) into a 100-mile (160 km) trek from its headwaters to its mouth. The depth of the river (except where noted below) ranges from 3 to 6 feet (90–180 cm). 22 02 1967 align left '''Jarrod Alexander Cooper''' (born March 31, 1978 in Akron, Ohio) is a former American football safety (Safety (American football position)) with the Oakland Raiders and Carolina Panthers.

home community

. thumb right Soapbox derby at a community celebration in Minnesota (File:SoapboxRace.jpg) In 1933, ''Dayton Daily News'' newspaper photographer Myron Scott of Dayton (Dayton, Ohio), Ohio had covered a race of boy-built cars in his home community and was so taken with the idea that he acquired rights to the event; the national-scale Soap Box Derby grew out of this idea. In 1934, Scott had managed to persuade fifty cities across the United States to hold soap box car races and send a champion each to Dayton for a major race, later held in Akron (Akron, Ohio). Scott later went on to work for Chevrolet. Scott was so enthusiastic with the whole concept that he acquired its copyright; the national-scale Soap Box Derby grew out of this idea. In 1934, Scott managed to persuade 50 cities across the United States to hold soap box car races and send a champion each to Dayton for a major race, a proposal that Chevrolet subsequently sponsored in 1935. The race was later held at Talmadge Hill in Akron (Akron, Ohio), Ohio. Event Promotion In August 2006 Coondog co-hosted the The National Hamburger Festival in Akron, Ohio. The festival was held to honor local food innovators, Frank and Charles Menches, who claimed to have invented the hamburger in 1885.

I-76 (The Pennsylvania Turnpike) continues into Ohio as the Ohio Turnpike, where it meets I-80 and leaves the Turnpike while I-80 joins the Turnpike. This means that Youngstown, Ohio, Akron, Ohio, Cleveland, Ohio, and Toledo, Ohio (all control cities) are appropriate for I-76 westbound. Cleveland is used once in Pennsylvania as a control city for the Ohio Turnpike, as is Columbus, Ohio (for Interstate 70).

Fort Chiswell is an unincorporated town that was chosen because it is the nearest community to I-77's junction with Interstate 81.

At the league meeting in Akron, Ohio on April 30 prior to the season, the Association was reorganized, with Joe Carr (Joseph Carr) of the Columbus Panhandles named as president. The Association's headquarters was moved to Columbus, Ohio, and a league constitution and by-laws were drafted, giving teams territorial rights, restricting player movements, and developing membership criteria for the franchises. The league would play under the rules of college football, and official standings were issued for the first time so that there would be a clear champion. The most notable of changes was that only games played against league teams would count toward the standings; this had the dual effect of both encouraging independent teams (such as those from the Ohio League and the NYPFL (New York Pro Football League)) to join, but also caused those that did not join to fold within a few years, because NFL teams, particularly those competing for a championship, would be much less willing to play what were effectively exhibition games against teams that would not help them in the standings. The PFW&C bought the Cleveland, Zanesville and Cincinnati Railroad by deed on July 1, 1865, making it its Akron Branch.

In 1868 a short 3.5 mile (5.5 km) extension to the south was built, and on November 4, 1869 the PFW&C sold the line to the Pittsburgh, Mt. Vernon, Columbus and London Railroad. That company later became part of the PRR's Cleveland, Akron and Cincinnati Railway. Life and career White was born as '''Jesse Marc Weidenfeld''' in Buffalo, New York, and was raised in Akron, Ohio.
