Helicopters fly over county

NEW CASTLE — Did you notice helicopters flying over Lawrence County this weekend and last?

The Lawrence Emergency Operations Centers said yesterday that the helicopters were a combined effort by the state of Pennsylvania Emergency Operations Center to inspect electric lines, drop rabies bait for animals and take measures to control the area black fly population.

The projects are paid for by state and federal funding.

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...
