Fund established to aid fire victim

NEW CASTLE — A fund has been set up to help the victim of Easter Sunday’s fire in North Beaver Township.

Linda Shoaff lost her home on New Road and everything in it during the afternoon blaze. The house is a total loss and two of Shoaff’s dogs perished in the fire.

Her daughters — Lacey Hammond and Jill Jones — have set up a fund at First Commonwealth Bank.

Anyone who is interested in helping Shoaff may take or mail a contribution to any First Commonwealth Bank branch and earmark it for the Linda Shoaff Fire Fund.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
