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.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
