Bear trap fails to snag burglar

NEW CASTLE — A bear trap failed to prevent a burglar from entering a home in the 400 block of Countyline Street.

That’s because the trap wasn’t set.

Someone broke into the house around 12:20 p.m. Sunday and stole two cordless drills and chargers and a bag of tools.

The resident told New Castle police she normally keeps a large bear trap set at the bottom of her basement steps, but she had forgotten to set it that day.

The police suggested she forego the bear trap and find a different way of protecting her home from intruders.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
