    New Castle city commissioners signed a contract with a broadband company last week providing Internet service to county residents pushed off the grid during the city’s break from Liberty Communications.

    According to one local funeral home, it’s getting more and more difficult to have “dignified funerals,” in part because of noisy neighbors.

    Whether it’s loud music or barking dogs, Sholar said “people are not respecting when we have visitation and when we have funerals.”

    The game opened with a score from the Hawks with 7:41 to go on a 24-yard run. They scored again with :34 seconds to go in the opening stanza and added the PAT to make it 14-0.
