Obama beat Romney within city’s borders

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Looking back at the presidential election, the letter writer who lamented Barack Obama’s loss in Lawrence County might be consoled by the unreported fact that Obama defeated Mitt Romney in the city of New Castle by a vote of 5,050 to 3,112, according to the county elections department.

Outside the city, Romney prevailed by more than 5,000 votes.

Summer is a perfect time for a good read. Where's your favorite place to spend off time with your nose in a book?

Relaxing on the couch
On a bench in the park
By the pool
At the closest beach
I don't have time to read
