We prove that some sums, which arise as generalizations of known binomial coefficient identities, are divisible by the central binomial coefficient. A new method is used. In particular, we show that an alternating sum concerning the product of a power of a binomial coefficient with two Catalan numbers is always divisible by the central binomial coefficient.
