Horse group withdraws support for local track

NEW CASTLE — The Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association has withdrawn its support for the track proposed for Lawrence County.

The letter from the organization’s president was sent to the state after another extension on financing was granted to the project.

However, local officials believe there is another option.

New Castle News reporter Nancy Lowry will have a full story, along with the text of the letter, in the Weekend edition.

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...
