Trees present hazards to New Castle drivers

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Maybe I’m the only one who thinks of the outdoors and nature as beautiful.

I don’t know what others see out there, but I see trees growing along the roads branching up and around the wires. Roots growing under and pushing up sidewalks and the streets.

Oh yes, let’s not forget all the weeds growing out over gutters and sidewalks, making some side streets near impossible to drive on. As if the roads aren’t bad enough with potholes.

People should be careful if they drive around those potholes. They might hit a tree or weeds hanging over the streets.

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...
