I don't think we should "bash" anyone for their views or opinions about anything. Its okay to disagree. If someone doesn't like the dump NC it ok. If someone likes the dump NC its okay. We are all adults, some educated some not. Let's be fair here.NC is no place for certain types of people. Nor is NC a place for justice or peace. It all depends on who you know and what "click" you are in just as anywhere else. Its just that NC is so small that the obvious is right in "your face" per say.

I think it is utterly ridiculous that because you once lived here, or know someone who does, you feel you can pass judgement on the entire population of New Castle.
they have more drug users because most of the ppl in nc have been around drugs atleast part of their life if not all n they see wat it does ta ppl around em so they sell it and the ppl from the outskirts havent so they dont kno anything about it cause they think its alright so they do it thats why the townships have more fiends i kno i used ta b 1 of the biggest hustlers in nc

I don't agree at all bout the bad people you surround yourself with statement and wish that I did. I went into town to get a few Middle Eastern things at the old Dave's Market on the South Side. I looked like a fat house wife and was holding my two-year-old, standing in line an elderly man wearing a mario's plumbing shirt asked me if I "partied". I didn't get it until much later but He asked me if I was a hooker. OK, the hookers are the greatest looking there but I AM HOLDING MY DAUGHTER!! Do the hookers there turn tricks in front of their babies or what?? The problem with New Castle is that the Newspaper doesn't do it's job and there are not any cultural outlets for the kids. The education sucks and any grant money is sucked up by Chip Barletto and Tom George.

Based upon those rather lame excuses, it sounds more like parents not doin' their job...and having kids when they have no business having them in the first place. Don't blame the rest of the world. Time to grow up and take responsiblity for your own.

What's with all the childish remarks on the blog? "My city's better than your city".. Please grow up. I have lived in New Castle all my life and yes I've seen it decline, just like all the other cities that have lost all the manufacturing jobs. I live in Neshannock township and make a real decent living. We could all move to Florida, but then we'd be stuck with each other.

N.C. does have a lot of crime and drugs, I have lived here all my life. Just a few hours ago a guy shot himself in his head a couple houses down from mine and unfortunately it was close enough to see his body, but things happen like this every where. Its not just N.C.

I agree we have some serious problems in New Castle. But got to other cities in this country, Go to Detroit, Chicago, Youngstown, Buffalo. The list goes on and on and the crime is astronomical in alot of other cities. Yes we have problems here but so does alot of other cities in this country. If our cities are going to get better then we have to stop the corrupt officials. They are all worried about putting money in their pockets. They could care less about the people unless they are their relatives, who always seem to get the county and city jobs. We have to stand up for what is rightfully ours. Let's get these scumbags out of office and make it a point to change the way things are done in our communities. That is the only way things will ever change. We should thank God everyday that our city is not as bad as alot of other cities. Look at Youngstown, Ohio there are shootings every other day and you don't dare drive thru most parts of Youngstown at night.

In New Castle if you have the right Italian name you got it made if not you get nothing unless you work your butt off for it. These people should not be able to hire family and friends. The jobs should go to the most qualified applicants no matter what their name is or who they know or are related to.

That was I that posted the last comment under "Atkinson Murder". After reading my post, it may have come out wrong. They blamed my uncle which was wrong. I don't believe he did it. But that goes to show what New Castle is like. Why do you think the trial took place in Mahoning County in OHIO ! Hell, I would take a chance of venue myself cause of the corrupt judges in that town. And I noticed your post tee. I'm wondering if you're the same tee that is my cousin. I'm in the same boat as you, curious about certain things that I cant remember as a child.
[email protected]
the murder actually happened in 78, he was not caught until 80 and the trial took place in 82. the uncle was not the only one to be runout of town in a manner of speaking, imagine how those of us felt who may have had the same last name and were shuned by the rest of the town. 1/2 said guilty and the other 1/2 said innocent. as for me personaly my life was hell, i was older than most of the cousins and had to take the brunt of it from all sides of the spectrum. the town is small and there were alot of people who were so cruel. by the way, there where three people involved a two month old baby who was not harmed, his 5 year old sister who was stabbed 40 + times and my aunt who was stabbed and shot. all very senseless.

What seems like history to most of you is not to our family. My cousin and her babysitter were murdered. My grandmother prayed every day that the person who did this would be brought to justice. She died not knowing who it was. My uncle is still heartbroken and really needs to know too.
All of us need to. At this point jail time is not important. Melanie is dead and so is her sister. Her parents deserve to know what happened.
I was very young when she was murdered but I still know what it did to my family. If Mr. Atkinson, Mr. Tanner or Mr. Costal had anything to do with this. PLEASE let our family know. It would mean the world to my uncle and the rest of us.
Thank you.

I have most newspaper accounts of the trial and also accounts of the other crime I believe Atkinson committed. I'm happy to email them to you if you like.
Hi Mel, Hope I have the right person. This is Luann. Let me know if I can help. It seems like you're hitting a brick wall. Love, Luann

you can say what you want about new castle and its probably true. but the crime in new castle is based on the fact that the projects stay in the city and that a majority of those who live there colect all my tax money and sell drugs. let them sell crap drugs and kill off all of the wastes of this city and clean this town up of no users no sellers. and all the houses burning down.... city redevelopment! cheaper to burn down then to tear down!
