Shenango education foundation to meet

NEW CASTLE — The first meeting of the Shenango Community Education Foundation will be Wednesday.

The session will begin at 7 p.m. in the Shenango High School library. The purpose of this meeting is to establish officers among the inaugural board of directors, along with adopting by-laws and other founding documents.

The group’s intention is to establish an independent, non-profit community organization, whose mission is to advance educational opportunities for all students of the Shenango Area School District both now and for future generations.

One of the foundation’s goals is an endowment fund to which community members, friends, alumni and businesses can make donations for the purpose of providing educational opportunities above and beyond district budgetary means.

The foundation’s meetings are open to the public.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
