NEW CASTLE —
Johnnyswim. I know, I know. Me neither. I had no idea what that word meant until a couple of months ago, when a friend of mine on Twitter was absolutely gushing about a great concert he had just seen.
The old Couch Potato has been methodically working my way through the hit Netflix series, “House of Cards,” over the past few weeks and let me just say, it’s pretty good.
It's always a tragedy when I have to cover a drowning for The News. I hope I never have to go to Kennedy Mills again for this purpose. It is located at the bottom of a twisty, turning hill on Frew Mill Road.
After 12 amazing years at the New Castle News, it is finally time for me to say goodbye. I walked through the doors of this building believing that I had found the place I would live out the rest of my days, content in the chaos of deadlines and bylines, inky fingers and editorials.
It was inevitable. I knew it was coming and the situation was unavoidable. Over the course of the last few weeks I have been preparing myself for this moment and it has finally come.
I never know when a blog moment may happen. This recent blog moment occurred during the Rockin’ the River concert at the Cascade Riverplex.
So there’s this guy LeBron. You may have heard of him. He plays basketball for a living. He also writes essays. Writes them very, very well, as a matter of fact. Last week, he put pen to paper to explain why he’s returning home to play again for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The word on the latest "Transformers" movie is that it may be the worst film of all time. I have never seen any of the "Transformers" movies, and I don't really plan on seeing this newest one, but I can't imagine that any of them are actually the worst movies of all time.
There's no doubt that as a child, I was way ahead of my time. When Mom made fried chicken, I would always ask, "I want the two legs sticking up."
