Hearing set on school building’s future

NEW CASTLE — A hearing Wednesday will determine the future of an abandoned school building.

The Pulaski Township supervisors will meet at 7 p.m. at the municipal building to determine whether the former New Bedford school on Schoolhouse Road violates the township dangerous buildings ordinance.

The supervisors would like to know what plans the owners have for the building. The owners are Richard P. and Patricia McMahon of Sharon.

Pulaski Township Supervisor Sam Varano said there have been problems at the former school including vandalism, broken windows and kids hanging around. He said the police have been called there several times.

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...
