    CORAOPOLIS, Pa - One of the two remaining anchor stores at Century III Mall may be on the way out after mall ownership asked a bankrupcy judge to reject the store's lease agreement.

    According to a ruling filed on March 7 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Judge Carlota M.

Penney, as the shopping complex has deteriorated.
