Police quell drain cleaner bomb attempt

NEW CASTLE — A call about a bomb on East Leasure Avenue on Wednesday morning turned out to be a minor incident, according to police.

Chief Bobby Salem reported that a 16-year-old boy had made a chemical reaction-type of bomb out of drain cleaner and his mother found it and called 911, but the chemical reaction never occurred.

The police went to his house in the 300 block around 11:45 a.m. and removed it, Salem said.

“Its a dangerous thing and we don’t want kids out there doing it,” he said.

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.
