Police probing counterfeit bill

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an incident of counterfeit money being used at a downtown restaurant.

Police said a manager of Burger King reported receiving a fake $50 bill around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

He said he noticed the bill while counting money for that day, and believes it had been handed to a clerk at the drive-through window.

Police said the bill was cut differently at the bottom than a regular $50 bill and it did not pass the brown marking test.

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.
