No open containers

Perkins Tavern owner Bruce Perkins presented a plan to the Newcastle City Council to allow for the relaxation of open container laws for the street dance that will be held in conjunction with the Newcastle High School All School Reunion, but his proposal was rebuffed by Newcastle Mayor Greg James and three other members of the council.
Perkins, along with T & A Brewery owner Tea Wright and Antlers owner Jill Armstrong, approached the council at Monday’s meeting, and were supported in their request by Ann McColley, the key organizer for the reunion, but their efforts were unsuccessful.

Main Event on hiatus?

The Newcastle Chamber of Commerce created the Main Event Concert Series in Newcastle throughout the summer of 2014 after hearing a sales pitch and hiring Annie Creek Productions, an Event Management Company, to help put on the concerts and locate sponsors to pay for the events.
After that first summer of service, committee members believe that they did not receive what they had paid for from Annie Creek, and representatives of the local committee that set up the concerts in the first year reported to local governments that helped provide funding to pay for a three year contract with Annie Creek that they are exploring other possibilities to continue the concert series in the future.

Entrance secure at Children’s Center

Employment lags behind last year

Weston County and Wyoming continue to hold steady when it comes to unemployment rates, and both boast averages that are significantly lower than national rates.
Wyoming has consistently experienced lower unemployment rates than the rest of the nation for a number of years, but Weston County tends to fluctuate between being higher or lower than the statewide average. The most recent data, however, appears to indicate that this county is still helping to keep the statewide rate lower, although the gap between us and the rest of the state is narrowing.
