Jerry Free is proud of his family’s local and international heritage, as his ancestors settled in Clark County, in the area now known as Free Road, in the 1840s. Six generations of Frees have lived in two homes on Free Road since then, and now Jerry Free fears that his family’s surname will vanish with his youngest son, as there are no more males to carry the name.

“But the other day, I did wonder if the girls will keep their maiden names when they get married…all the popular movie stars are doing that nowadays,” said Jerry Free of his two school-age granddaughters, Sidney and Taylor. “Maybe they won’t get married at all, or maybe they’ll keep their names…you just don’t know what the world is going to be like in 20 years,” he remarked.

Weather Woes Wither Festival Crowd PDF Print E-mail

A wise outdoor event planner once said: “The thing you have no control over, is the thing that can make or break everything,” she said, referring to the weather. The hardworking folks of the Heritage of Flight Festival Committee maintained a positive attitude throughout the cold, windy weekend, shrugging off the chill and disgusting frozen precipitation by saying they made the best of it.

Thankfully, Friday’s doom-and-gloom weather let up just enough for the evening’s Cruise-In Car Show to draw a crowd, but attendance numbers seemed lower than in years-past. Unfortunately, the weather returned in full-force Saturday morning despite a forecast that promised cold, yet sunny skies.

The skies were anything but sunny Saturday morning as a thick wave of frozen precipitation the meteorologists call Graupel fell on the area, combined with sleet, snow, and rain, making for a messy mixture. As if that weren’t bad enough, the accompanying winds quickly arrived, blowing vendors’ tents up and down Main Street in erratic fashion, and knocking their precious wares into the street.

The high winds also prevented the festival’s signature elements from appearing in the parade, as pilots feared the gusts would either flip over the airplanes or knock their wings into the street light poles along Main Street, as they only had a few inches of clearance on either side.

Festival organizers pushed through Saturday night’s wind and drizzle to finally bring fireworks to downtown New Carlisle, resulting in what everyone agreed was a fantastic show.

By Brittany Arlene Jackson

Coolidge, Arizona and New Carlisle, Ohio were as far apart in thought as they were in distance until a tragic accident occurred this past Friday, October 24. 21-year-old David Jackson Elam, son of beloved Bethel High School band director, Danny Elam, was in a head-on collision with a Leland Stevens Trucking semi at 7:00 AM in Coolidge, Arizona last Friday. The police report from the crash said that David Elam, a Department of Corrections employee, was likely on his way home after a late night shift. He did not survive.

David’s journey home, beginning on October 24th, will finally bring him back to New Carlisle this week where his family and friends will welcome him home and say goodbye again all too soon. Larry Fraley at the Trostel, Chapman, Dunbar, & Fraley Funeral Home in New Carlisle said that arrangements were already being made for David’s memorial.

City Seeks To Increase “Earned” Income Tax PDF Print E-mail

2014 Budgeted Police ExpensesThe voters of New Carlisle are being asked to support an “earned income tax” for the purpose of supporting only the expenses for police and streets. City Manager Kim Jones explained to the New Carlisle News that the .50% earned income tax would bring $500,000 per year into the city funds. This is a 5 year levy that would begin to be collected from paychecks on January 1, 2015.

We asked Ms. Jones why the city elected to place an earned income tax on the ballot rather than a property tax for the purpose of funding law enforcement and streets. She explained that when the city council was in discussions about what type of levy was needed and the amount of income it would produce, a group of local citizens came to the council and asked for some relief for those on a yearly income that is from pensions, disability or other sources that is unlikely to increase. They expressed a need to protect their monthly expenses which would increase if a property tax were levied.
