New Castle’s ‘Fab Five’ make college choices official

NEW CASTLE — Five New Castle High School seniors shared the spotlight Thursday morning during a special college football signing day celebration.

Jake McPhatter (Ball State University), Malik Hooker (Ohio State University), Julian Cox (Albany University), Stew Allen (Duquesne University) and Drew Allen (Robert Morris University) were cheered by family, friends, teammates and the school’s other varsity and junior varsity athletes in the auditorium.

The event, originally scheduled for yesterday’s National Signing Day, was delayed one day by winter’s latest blast, which closed the school.

Reporter David Burcham and photographer Tiffany Wolfe were on hand for the big event and will have complete details in Friday’s edition of the New Castle News.

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
