Awesome August 1st, HOF Parade, New Romney and Obama Poll

Cold front moved through early this morning and with mainly clear skies, we will warm into the low 80s this afternoon. Warmer and more humid air will build back in for the rest of the week. By Saturday temperatures will top out in the low 90s before a cold front approaches Sunday with storms.

The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Timken Grand Parade will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4, beginning at 8 a.m. The first grand parade was held in 1963. It has since become one of the largest of the 19 events over a two-week period, celebrating the induction of the newest Class of Enshrinees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This year's celebration will include many returning Hall of Famers who will ride in the parade, along with the Class of 2012 Enshrinees, including Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin and Willie Roaf.

A new poll shows President Barack Obama and his likely presidential election challenger Mitt Romney appeal to different age groups. A New USA Today/Gallup poll shows a gaping generation gap between supporters of the two candidates. The poll showed most seniors 65 and older support Romney. Meanwhile, young adults under 30 favor President Obama by nearly a 2-to-1 margin. USA Today said voting trends among those age groups could work in Romney's favor. It also added that younger voters who supported Obama in 2008 appear less engaged this year. In the meantime, seniors who were less engaged four years ago seem more inspired by Romney.
