Emergency crews praised for house fire response

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I want to acknowledge all the emergency personnel for the quick and caring response to the house fire at 622 Wayne Ave. in Ellwood City.

It is because of well-trained fire and police that no life was lost and no other homes were severely damaged when this fire consumed this historical house Feb. 19.

Special recognition goes to the Ellwood City Police Department, Lt. David Kingston and Patrolman John Lubich, Ellwood City Fire Chief Rick Myers and the courageous volunteer firefighters who were on the scene immediately, including those from Chewton, Zelienople, Wurtemburg-Perry, North Sewickley, Franklin, Shenango and Wayne.

It takes a special kind of person to put his life in danger to save the lives and properties of people unknown to him. All of these individuals are very special in my eyes, and we are blessed to have each and every one of them in our communities to protect us.

Anthony Court,


Ellwood City

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...
