For those who do not want to take root in the ground because they are lay abouts, the New Castle School of Trades is offering courses that will fit into the new technologies that are taking the valley into the future.

The Parker Hannifin foundry located on Logan Avenue on the north side will close at the end of March.  The workforce of 63 will be layed off.  The company is consolidating foundry operations with a plant in another state.
