New Castle school board schedules special meeting

NEW CASTLE — A special meeting of the New Castle school board has been scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

A legal advertisement for the meeting identifies the session for “general purposes” with no other explanation.

However, the session follows a contentious meeting last week where a 5-4 majority on the board voted to halt the Lockley school consolidation project, which was intended to expand the existing Lockley Elementary School and close the other elementaries in the district.

Also at that meeting, Superintendent George Gabriel, upset over the move, submitted his letter of resignation effective Jan. 31. The same 5-4 majority voted to accept the resignation.

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?
