New Castle must keep its beautiful trees

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

 After reading the Sept. 14 paper, I am compelled to write and beg the council of the city of New Castle to please not cut down our beautiful trees.

Our town is not as great as it once was, but we still have great, big, beautiful trees. I bet that at least once a week I comment about the trees along the Neshannock Creek, at Cascade Park and Pearson Park. They are all so extremely amazing and life giving.

Officials should think of the animals that build their homes in them, raise their young in them, provide food for them and provide shade and oxygen for all of us

Council members should reconsider cutting them down for profit, and use some other means to raise money. I hear the city got a lot of money from Marcellus Shale leasing. That ought to be enough to save the trees.

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...
