NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Lawrence County residents, The News and the state police are on the job.
After a recent home invasion in the middle of the night, my two precious Boston terrier puppies were stolen. The Youngstown and Pittsburgh TV stations along with The News, picked up this story and ran with it.
We received the first tip late Friday evening on the location of the puppies. There was no hesitation by the police. They responded immediately and Adam (Peanuts) was rescued about 1 a.m. Saturday morning.
The second call came about 8 a.m. Saturday that led to the rescue of Eve (Sissy). Again, the police responded immediately thanks to New Castle police officers David Viggiano, J.J. Paglia, Kevin Seelbaugh, along with Troopers Shawn King and Rob Cox.
No, this wasn’t a murder case or critical accident. It was a case of some stolen puppies that meant the world to a somewhat distraught owner. These young officers not only responded immediately but demonstrated compassion and concern.
I do not have the appropriate words to express my gratitude but only to say I am appreciative of a job well done by our police departments.
These men and women lay their lives on the line for us every day. We must pray for their safety. We all need to express our appreciation to these wonderful officers. The next time we see one of them or perhaps are stopped for some minor traffic violation, we should not get angry or combative.
Instead, they should be thanked or the work they do. And in the case of a minor traffic violation, just remember they may have just saved a life.
