Sheriff sale property found unavailable

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle man is facing charges for allegedly failing to have his property available for a sheriff’s sale.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s office has charged Alvin Emery, 70, of 211 W. Moody Ave., with defrauding secured creditors.

The sheriff’s office was scheduled to sell a 52-inch television, a microwave oven and a 1994 gray Chrysler at Emery’s address on Dec. 18 last year. However, when the sheriff and his deputy went to the sale, Emery was not around, nor was his property. The sheriff’s office alleges he owes the victim $1,716.

He was issued a summons to appear in court.

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...
