New Castle News -Bit by bit, piece by piece, Lawrence County is becoming cleaner. That is thanks in no small part to groups that are participating in the Great American Cleanup of PA, which kicked off March 1 and runs through May 31. In recent days, we’ve seen Steve Jones and Kevin Taylor organize a group to clean-up an area on West North Street. A report from one the participants indicated that residents also had come out that day on Bell Avenue and Smithfield Street to pick up their neighborhood. On April 27, Sidney McKnight and volunteers from several area churches are planning to continue the effort to clean up New Castle’s West Side. Scheduled to participate are representatives from Victory Christian Center, New Castle Campus, St. Luke AME Zion Church, St. John United Holy Church on Moravia Street, Ebenezer Church of God in Christ, St. Paul Baptist Church, Union Baptist Church, Prevailing Word World Outreach Center, and the NAACP.
