Police chief’s efforts help to thwart ATVs

NEW CASTLE — Editor, the News:

I would like to publicly acknowledge New Castle’s chief of police, Bobby Salem, for aggressively addressing the all-terrain vehicle problem in our neighborhood.

An alley runs alongside our house, onto which our driveway and my neighbor’s driveway — where two small children play outside — back into.

This alley has been plagued by ATVs speeding through all hours of the day and night and resulted in a broken window at our house.

After several phone calls speaking with Salem, it was addressed at a city council meeting and an ordinance was passed banning the use of ATVs in the city. I’m happy to say that the alley is ATV free.

Without the help of Salem, this wouldn’t have been possible.

Once again, our neighborhood is grateful.

Yes! I'd love to know what my pet is thinking.
Nah, it's probably not that interesting.
I don't know. I'm afraid of what I might find out.
