Service will honor fallen officers

NEW CASTLE — All fallen law enforcement officers from Lawrence County will be remembered during Police Week services Thursday.

The local service will begin at noon in front of the New Castle police station, 303 E. North St.

Communities across the United States are observing National Police Week — May 12 to 18 — to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind.

In tribute to American law enforcement officers and at the request of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Public Law 103-322 designates May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day. It is one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses and residents are to fly their U.S. flags at half staff.

More information about National Police Week is available by visiting www.LawMemorial.org/policeweek.

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.
