Police: Gunman robs Union bank

NEW CASTLE — First Commonwealth Bank in Union Township was robbed Tuesday night.

The holdup at the bank, located in the Walmart plaza on State Street, was reported around 6 p.m., the time that branch closes.

There were no reports of injuries, but authorities were told the man who had robbed the bank had a gun. Supposedly, he left a clip for the weapon at the scene.

The robber also was said to have had netting of some sort that was used to conceal his face.

After the robbery, police in the county were looking for a black Nissan Altima believed to have been used as a getaway vehicle. It was last seen traveling east on the Route 422 bypass.

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.
