    I was excited when I heard the Ne-Ca-Hi boys basketball team was going to be at the New Castle News. It never entered my mind to stand in line and get an autograph. I just wanted to pop in and say "Hi."

  • riskquotes.jpg Lisa Madras: Playing it ‘safe’ may be the biggest risk of all

    When was the last time you took a risk? I have never been a huge risk-taker. Sure, I love roller coasters and surfing and occasionally (although I'll deny it if you ever ask me) driving just a little bit too fast. But the difference between me and the real risk-takers of the world is that my so-called risks are carefully controlled and calculated.

  • Drespling.jpg Josh Drespling: After first pitch is thrown, it’s a whole different ballgame for men, women

    Hidden in the similarities is the vast expanse of differences.  Despite the commonality of their emotions, bodies, and habitats, there lies a vast array of infinite deviations in form and function. Such is the relationship between men and women.

    Probably sometime in your life, you have pictured what your retirement will be like. Visions of you sitting in your chair, wearing a cardigan sweater, with a pair of slippers on, smoking a pipe.

    Are you good at explaining things? I mean, can you give clear directions to the motorist who pulls up to ask for help? Can you teach a group of children to play a game correctly? The art of communication is now a must for any parent, teacher or coach.

    If there is one thing that the Couch Potato loves more than sitting around watching television and movies, it’s certainly NOT writing.  Writing takes brain power, thoughtfulness and is really just an arduous process of tediousness and self-loathing.

  • Church.jpg Gary Church: Did ’Canes just win? Or did my wife slip a disk?

    I would like to congratulate the New Castle boys basketball team for winning the state championship. Since my wife and I don't have the best knees for climbing up bleacher steps, we no longer attend games.

  • possible.jpg Lisa Madras: Me? An athlete? That might be a stretch

    Is it out of reach? Or have you just not stretched yourself far enough? My friend Alexis and I have a tradition. Each year in March we attend the Crisis Shelter Auction, a fundraiser for the shelter that involves dinner, drinks, and of course, an auction

  • Drespling.jpg Josh Drespling: If it’s your property, is it your cross to bear?

    There is a new house being built along one of the roads I travel every day on my way to and from work.  It looks like it is going to be a very nice house. It has a beautiful brick exterior, three-car garage, and the back looks like it is open to an expansive wooded area. Prime spot for a nice, big deck, in my opinion.

  • Church.jpg Gary Church: I’ve always wanted to thank Frank for my sex education

    When we're eating out, it is not unusual for me to strike up a conversation with some stranger. This happened last week at the Mahoning VFD fish dinner.
