Flag display at Laurel honors area veterans

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

On a recent road trip through beautiful western Pennsylvania, we stopped to photograph the American flags displayed in front of Laurel High School.

The number of flags was impressive with the school and the traditional flag and flagpole in the background. A closer examination revealed that the flags were tagged with names and dates of service.

Laurel High School showed that the people of the country honor our armed forces. We appreciated the beautiful display and commend the teachers, administrators or organizations that promoted this meaningful Veterans Day tribute.

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...
