Do you remember the American Cyanamid blast?

NEW CASTLE — The New Castle News is planning to mark the 50th anniversary of the deadly July 6, 1964, blast at the American Cyanamid plant.

We’re looking for people who were working at the plant that day to share their memories of the event, as well as for family members of the five men killed in the explosion.

If you’re willing to talk with us, please contact Dan Irwin at (724) 654-6654, extension 619, or email him at

Have you held or will you hold a garage/yard sale this year?

I have and it was a success! It's a great way to get rid of some junk and make a little extra pocket money.
I have, but it didn't go over so well. Better luck next time?
I haven't yet, but I plan to.
I haven't and I don't plan to. It's not for me.
