June seemed to be a good month for images. On top of some of the others that I’ve already posted, here are a handful more.
Without question, the newsiest thing to happen to New Castle this month was a roof collapse. Big Bounce Inflatables, a local children’s attraction, had its roof cave in one afternoon with people inside. No one was seriously injured but the building had to be bull dozed down to ensure there were no further collapses. I arrived on the scene about the same time as emergency responders.
As hard as I try to get to spot news quickly, sometimes I just can’t get there fast enough. For example, a motorcycle caught on fire one afternoon. My route was plagued with stop signs and red lights. By the time I got there, the bike was extinguished.
The last thing you think of with a parade is rain. During this year’s Memorial Day parade in Middletown, it hardly let up. Wet streets, diffused skies and umbrellas all can be beneficial to photo composition.
With budget cuts running rampant, it came as little surprise that the New Castle Community School Corporation decided to close Greenstreet Elementary School after this school year. It wasn’t easy for many of the students or teachers on the last day of school.
