Fairgrounds lose manager

After all of the items on the agenda had been taken care of at the Weston County Fair Board meeting on Tuesday, May 12, Weston County Fairgrounds Manager Tom Streeter handed his letter of resignation to each of the three board members— Ellen McKenzie, Janet Perino and Zane Marty— that were present at the meeting.
The resignation was accepted with a motion to become effective May 31, and it was agreed to pay Streeter an hourly wage of $25 after that date if he is needed to train the new manager.

Chamber focuses on business

Newcastle Area Chamber of Commerce Director Susan Love said she is striving to reach her goal to get businesses throughout the community to work together more effectively, and the Chamber has organized a number of different events recently to move closer to that goal and fulfill what Love believes is the organization’s primary mission.

The race is on

The first mini sprint races at Newcastle Raceway were scheduled for Saturday May 9, but due to the rain and the snow Weston County received that weekend the races were canceled.
Newcastle Raceway promoter Randy Hershey reported good news last week, however, and instead of one race there will be a two day race event in its place on Saturday and Sunday, this Memorial Day weekend.

Game room is now closed to kids

The Newcastle Game Room is now an 18 and older establishment, and owner Bruce Perkins said he was forced to impose the age limit because he got tired of all the vandalism. He believes the change in policy is worth the loss in business for the Newcastle Game Room, which was originally intended to be accessible to children of all ages— as long as they followed the rules established by management.

“The younger kids— between 14 and 18— vandalize it,” Perkins reported, explaining that his suspicions were confirmed after security camera footage was reviewed when damage took place throughout the building.
