Man accused of stealing cash, lottery tickets

NEW CASTLE — A former employee of a Slippery Rock Township market has been charged with stealing from the business.

Police said the fraud occurred when Pennington allegedly falsified bank deposit slips for the business, indicating funds had been deposited in the store’s account when they had not.

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?
