Robber gets $50, milk, candy

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are hoping to learn from surveillance video who robbed an East Side convenience store.

A man entered the Market 24 Food Mart around 4:10 a.m. Monday and demanded $50 from a clerk. He also walked off with a bottle of milk and a large size Reese’s peanut butter cup, according to police.

The clerk told police the man had entered the store and asked if he could get service. When he demanded the money, he threatened the clerk’s family, he told officers.

The clerk said he handed over the money and the man left.

Police said no weapon was used.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
