Thieves target man's vodka, beer

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating a report of two men robbing a third man of alcohol downtown.

A man told police he had been carrying two six-packs of beer and a half-gallon of vodka on East Washington Street near the Riverplex around 11:25 a.m. Tuesday. He said he had just bought them from the state liquor store, according to police.

The man said two men pushed him down on the ground, told him they would kill him, then took his alcohol but nothing else.

He told police he had chased the men on foot but lost them under a bridge as they ran toward Neshannock Village.

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.
