  • How can you reduce global warming?

    Here lately everyone has been talking about Global Warming. A lot of celebrities come out and say we all need to do our part. So how can you do your part to help global warming? You can start by eating less meat. Yes, it's true. This works by reducing the amount of livestock that then decreases the amount of methane flatulence from the animals. Scientists now say cutting 10 percent of red meant would cut the gasses emitted by cows, sheep and goats that contribute to global warming.

  • Be more environmentally concious

    I think you should put more articles in your paper about the green house gases that are entering our atmosphere. I don't think many people completely understand what is happening to our ozone.

  • Former mayor, commissioner urges participation in program

    As a former New Castle Mayor and Commission member, I would like to take this opportunity to urge the present Commission to continue its participation in the Main Street Program. I feel that the small fraction of the city budget set aside for this commitment to our future is a small price for the benefits that the City has received and will continue to receive from this program.

  • Saving energy saves money

    As a concerned teen, saving energy is very important to do. I read about a very simple way to save energy. It barely takes any time at all and can even save people money.

    Saving energy is a very important thing in our society today. Doing this is extremely simple. If you turn off a fluorescent light for five seconds you save more energy than is required to turn on the light. If you leave the light off for five to 15 minutes you might even save money.

  • Main Street brings benefits to the city

    I recently learned that the New Castle City Commission is considering dropping out of the Main Street Program. I think this would be a serious mistake. During my tenure as Mayor and Commissioner, the city's participation in Main Street brought tremendous benefits to the city and continues to do so.

  • Thanks for help with cafeteria project

    I first moved here in May 2007 to live with my uncle George and aunt Lee Ann. They live in Eminence. My little brother and I had already been here on visits. You see we knew we were moving here because my mother had terminal cancer. She wanted us to feel comfortable as we could before we came on a permanent basis. She died June 27, 2007. Our world seemed to turn upside down. I have never felt so lost. I started school in August at Eminence as an eighth grader.

  • Reclaiming lost memories

    As recent graduates of Eminence High School, we remember being told often, if not every day, "Always do the right thing" and "Always make good choices."

    Looking back on our high school days, we realize that the city of Eminence did not make a good choice or "do the right thing" by closing the Eminence swimming pool and taking away our recreational activities.
