  • Dog owners must control their pets

    Editor:

    My mother loves to walk Max, her Boston Terrier. Monday, April 1 while walking him, she saw some girls walking a black German Shepherd in their direction. So, as mom always does, she began to cross the street with Max as to avoid the two dogs crossing paths.

    The German Shepherd broke the leash and attacked/jumped my mom and Max  knocking my mother down onto the street. She couldn’t get up.

    Max was trying to fight the big dog off. Mom said finally the girls got the dog by the collar, pulling it off of her.

  • New Castle to honor WWII veterans

    Editor:

    Did you realize that out of the 16 million Veterans who participated in WWII, there are only about 1.5 million still living? The U.S. is losing 800-1,000 WWII Veterans every day, which means in five years most of the “Greatest Generation” will be gone.

  • New weight level can avert traffic citations

    Editor:

    Farmers, especially those who drive their vehicles out of state, might want to consider a new option when purchasing license registration renewals during March.

    Farmers have an option when purchasing their farm tags to adjust the weight limit from 38,000 pounds to 26,000 pounds. The price and the tags are the same, but the ramifications could be costly.
