  • Welcome interruptions for editor and county

    In life, people fall into certain rhythms and patterns that, repeated enough, will eventually become routine.

    Possibly the most generic one is getting out of bed, preparing for the day, commuting to work, maybe spending as much as 7.5 hours being productive and taking a half hour for lunch, heading home after, having some dinner, visiting with loved ones and bed.

  • Volunteer to make festival bigger or better

    Who “Lights-Up” New Castle?  Disappointed because there is no Light-Up scheduled? Have you considered why?  

    Charlie Sevier and a small crew worked on the City of New Castle’s Spring, Fall and Christmas celebrations for several years. He chose to resign from his leadership role in festival organizing.

  • Town's festival not exactly up to par

    I heard there may not be a Light Up New Castle this year because they are too tired. To me, that’s just plain laziness.

    You took over things, that means you have to do Christmas because the children look forward to meeting and telling Santa Claus what they want.

  • More farm freedom needed

    In 2011, federal agents launched a sting operation on an Amish farmer.  Prof. Baylen J. Linnekin provides details of the raid:

     “Federal agents watched the home closely for a year, gathering evidence.  Then, in a pre-dawn raid, armed members from three agencies swooped in.
