Creek cleanup planned

NEW CASTLE — Jennings Environmental Education Center, Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Paddle Without Pollution are joining forces April 27.

The three groups are planning to conduct a spring cleanup operation of the Slippery Rock Creek.

They are looking for volunteers to join them as they use kayaks and canoes to collect trash from the creek. Participants will begin at 9 a.m. that day and paddle six miles from Camp Crestfield to the take-out at Studebaker, near Harlansburg Road.

Plans are to clean up the water and the shoreline. Participants will meet at Jennings Environmental Education Center and shuttle to the launch site.

Lunch/snacks and shuttle services will be provided. There will be a limited number of kayaks and canoes available for those who don’t take their own.

Additional launch information and details will be provided upon sign-up. To register, go to

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...
