Act 47 should raise revenue in new ways

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

When are the members of New Castle City Council, the mayor and the rest of the citizens going to realize that whoever the Act 47 person is, he or she does not have any idea of how to raise revenue other than to tax the citizens out of their homes?

There should be a public outcry to replace this person and to ask the state to send someone who knows how to generate real revenue other than raising taxes.

Shame on the members of the council for going along with this person for so long and not demanding that the state replace him or her.

I think that the salary this person has been receiving should be returned in full. Anyone in the city could have suggested the same unfair way to raise revenue. What a cushy job.

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...
