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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
