Jansen confirmed Thursday evening he was resigning from the school board because of the move. "I'm not happy about it, but we're about to settle on a house outside the (Spring Grove) district," Jansen...

  • Philly owes $877,000 for Boy Scouts' eviction case

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The city must pay nearly $900,000 after a failed effort to evict the Boy Scouts of America because of the group's ban on gays, a federal judge ruled Wednesday. The post-trial ruling is just the latest twist in a decade-long legal dispute over the Boy Scout oath, which requires members to be "morally straight." The two sides have sought a compromise that would let the local Boy Scouts chapter keep its rent-free, city-owned headquarters without violating the national Scout policy. However, a tentative deal struck since the city lost a court case last year has fallen apart....

    Colleen Krajewski performs abortions. She's not hiding it -- in fact, she wants you to know. The Pittsburgh physician even has a tattoo of a clothes hanger, a symbol of the danger of illegal abortions, on her forearm for all to see. In July, The Washington Post published a column she wrote about her work and its impact on her personal and dating life. It was widely shared, and Krajewski said she has received messages from around the world in response. The column is unusual. She says many doctors who perform abortions aren't up front about what they do. Some...

In the second quarter, Mack delivered 5,507 trucks worldwide, a mere 1 percent decline — or a drop of 81 trucks — from the 5,588 completed a year ago, according to a report released Wednesday by Mack’s parent company, Sweden’s...
