New Castle man critical after crash

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle man is in critical condition in Pittsburgh’s Allegheny General Hospital with injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident.

Alan S. Valentic, 51, was hurt Sunday evening in Muddy Creek Township, Butler County.

State police said Valentic had been traveling on the on ramp to Route 19 from Route 422 eastbound and failed to negotiate a left hand curve. The motorcycle went off the travel lanes and onto some loose gravel on the berm, causing him to lose control.

The motorcycle slid on its left side, hit a traffic sign and traveled up a small embankment that caused Valentic to fly off the vehicle, police said. Valentic and the motorcycle came to rest on the embankment.

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.
