This week we begin reprinting a series of stories by former NCTnews contributor, D.B. Moore. The historic tales are from Moore's book, My Hometown, Gekelemukpechunk. The book is a collection of true stories that Moore recalled from growing up in Newcomerstown. We hope you will find them as amusing and enjoyable as previous generations of "Mukpechunks" have. --Michael A. Wise, NCTnews
