    General Manager

    The library of New Castle Elementary School was mostly quiet, except for the sound of a brush dab-dab-dabbing at the walls. It was the sound of growth.

    In just a few hours, a large tree grew from floor to ceiling, with branches spread out over the tops of some of the library’s bookshelves.

So why, on an every day basis, do we have dozens of cars speeding well over the speed limit? Do the newly installed stop signs boarding the bike trail and Arbor View help? No, they don't. Everyday I witness several cars blowing the stop signs totally.
