Possible firsts seen in city school district

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

If, as Mark Elisco reports from Florida, the New Castle school board might hire an outsider as superintendent, it would be the first time in 50 years.

George Gabriel, who recently retired as superintendent, was preceded by John E. Mathews, Russell L. Horchler and Joseph A. Martin.

Meanwhile, Gabriel is running for school board. If he is elected, that would be a first.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
