Teamwork produces successful soup sale

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Once again, on behalf of Shenango Presbyterian and our soup team, which includes Shirley and Jim Furst, Beth Kendall, Cynthia Jones, David and Cheryl Rosenholm, Bob McClintock, Ken Cotton, I express appreciation to all of our great customers who support us month after month.

Speaking of gratitude, I offer mine to Betty Garrett and Nancy Jaeger for their great recipe for our now-famous chili.

These ladies hit a home run with the chili; we just cannot make enough of it, that’s how good it is. Great job.

Also, I want to acknowledge our church secretary, Linda Ridge, for all the help that she gives to me, and our soup team, for helping me with orders for all of our supplies that we need and also for taking the phone orders for soup, which is a full-time job during the soup week.

We are all so fortunate to have Linda at our church. She is the best.

I hope that all of our customers from New Castle, Ellwood City and the Shenango Valley have a great summer, stay safe, stay healthy and most important, stay hungry for our soup.

We will be back the first weekend in October.

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...
