Tim Fulkerson only has a few weeks left on New Castle's city council, but that doesn't mean he's going out quietly.

The two-term councilman who served eight years as the city's mayor between 1996 and 2003 has built up a reputation as someone who speaks his mind. At Tuesday's council meeting, Fulkerson spent about nine minutes during his comment period urging the Lawrence County commissioners to change the way they handle their free-and-clear tax sale.

"I'm gone in 30 days, but I would hope some county commissioner would get the guts enough to really overhaul the free-and-clear sale," Fulkerson said.
