A portion of East Washington Street was closed on Saturday for the third annual Public Safety Awareness First Responders Day. The main event is the pumper pull, a fundraiser for the Lawrence County Fire Academy, in which teams are required to pull a firetruck 37 feet. Winners are calculated by the gross weight of the team multiplied by the number of seconds it takes for them to pull the distance. The lowest score wins.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
