William Casteel of West Lafayette has announced that the printing of the book he has been working on, titled, "School Days: A Photo History of the Newcomerstown Elementary Schools 1900-1960," will be delayed until a later date.

Casteel stated concerns about the current economy being unfavorable with the sale of the book. He is now planning for the book to be printed later this year and will be available to the public no later than spring 2010.

Group pictures for several classes are still needed. Anyone having any group pictures or other related materials from the elementary schools at Newcomerstown that would like to submit copies for the book, may call Casteel at 545-0260. Items may also be left for Casteel at the Newcomerstown News office.
