It is really sad to see a newspaper that was once very good become so run down. twice in 1 week the police scanner has appeared on the news page of this paper and then to top that off you are now running 0bituaries on the news page. so if everything is going to be run on the news pages why not do away with the separate sections,then we can all just search and find.

You know that at one point this past winter,Greencastle went for 11 days with no accidents, no fire runs, no deaths and no crimes. I think that has to be some kind of record for a town the size of Greencastle.
