In an unusual maneuver, Temple University officials declared an impasse yesterday in their talks with striking faculty and announced that they would implement the terms of their last offer. Officials of the Temple Association of University Professionals (TAUP), whose strike is entering a record 20th day today, immediately denounced the step as illegal and an attempt to entice strikers to cross the picket lines. "They are doing everything to break this strike and spending all their energy trying to break this strike - intimidating and coercing people to come back - instead of negotiating," said Arthur Hochner, TAUP president.

An impasse between the only two members of the Audubon Commission resulted in no action being taken last night on a number of reappointments to borough positions. The two members are Mayor Stanley Mojta and Commissioner Jane Merryfield, and the agenda for the meeting included reappointments to several township offices, including teasurer, borough solicitor and purchasing agent. However, Merryfield declined to make a motion for approval for any of the reappointments. Although the borough commission normally consists of three members, no replacement has been named to fill the seat vacated when Vincent Lobascio resigned in November.

The agent for Adam "Pacman" Jones said negotiations reached an impasse yesterday for Tennessee's top draft pick, news that caught the Titans' general manager by surprise. "I don't think I've ever seen this," Floyd Reese said. "So this one's kind of new. I've only been doing this for 30 years, and this is the first time the press got an e-mail and the GM didn't. " Agent Michael Huyghue flew into town Thursday hoping to conclude a contract for the sixth pick overall and the first defensive player taken in the draft.

Commissioner David Stern is hoping sheer dynamics will create a breakthrough in the NBA labor impasse. That is because the 23 player representatives are meeting tonight in Chicago with their general counsel, Larry Fleisher. The owners are meeting tomorrow morning. "I'm hoping the meetings will stir things up to a point that will get us back to discussions," said Stern, at the Sixers-Pacers game last night to participate in an anti-drug campaign with Nancy Reagan. The league and the NBA Players Association have been without a collective bargaining agreement since the final game of last season's playoffs.

Talks between striking dockworkers and port employers hit a snag early today, when union leaders walked out of the talks, saying they were at an impasse. "Apparently, they don't want a contract," Lucien Blackwell, president of International Longshoremen's Association Local 1332, said as he emerged from the talks at 2:20 a.m. But Blackwell and other leaders returned to the bargaining table about 30 minutes later, summoned by martime negotiators who said they had a new proposal for them to consider.

Neither threats nor decisions were made last night when about 130 people, most of them school staff members, attended a Pitman school board meeting to protest their prolonged contract negotiations. "After five meetings with the board, we are at an impasse in our negotiations," said the lone speaker from the audience, Carol Fox, president of the 150-member Pitman Education Association. Board President Kathleen W. Benash said the two sides entered mediation last week through the state's Public Employees Commission.

Federal jurors deliberating the fate of six members of an elite Philadelphia narcotics squad said Tuesday that they were at "an impasse on one or more counts. " The six-man, six-woman panel alerted U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno of their stalemate in a note just after 2:30 p.m. - about 20 hours into their discussions. The judge sent them back instructions to keep trying to reach a unanimous verdict. "Although it may seem like an eternity, it has only been 31/2 days of deliberations," Robreno told them.

Human-service providers across Delaware County called on Gov. Wolf on Thursday to release funding for their programs amid the continuing budget standoff in Harrisburg. It has been more than 50 days since a budget was due, and county service providers that rely on state funding are feeling the pinch, they said at a news conference Thursday. Though some services are receiving funding during the impasse - such as intellectual disability services and public benefit programs administered by the state - others are not. In Delaware County, the providers said, these include domestic violence centers, antipoverty agencies, and the new center for child victims of sexual abuse.

GOV. TOM WOLF won election by campaigning strongly on his commitment to significantly increase education funding and to make fundamental changes in the way those funds are distributed to the 500 school districts across Pennsylvania. Soon after taking office, he proposed a comprehensive plan for increasing the percentage of education funding which comes from the commonwealth, while shifting the source of funds away from the heavy property-tax burden which many Pennsylvania communities currently shoulder.

Susanne Cassidy caught a train downtown from Wynnewood, leaving enough time to make her way through the midday heat to the offices of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. She wanted to be there Monday to support her friend Margie Winters. Winters, of course, was fired as director of religious education at Waldron Mercy Academy in June after the archdiocese learned of her same-sex marriage. Cassidy has known Winters and her wife, Andrea, for years from Mass at St. Vincent de Paul in Germantown - a haven for liberal-minded Catholics across the city.

HARRISBURG - Late last week, Gov. Wolf quietly made a 90-minute road trip to the State College area to talk to Republican legislative leaders about the budget impasse. There were no cameras or fanfare - and, unlike in the last few months, no rhetoric or sweeping public pronouncements in the aftermath. It was the second time in three days the two sides seemed to give more than perfunctory face time to each other. Yet each meeting ended the same way: without an agreement to keep government running.

IF YESTERDAY'S botched online sale of SEPTA regional-rail passes for the papal visit is any indication of what's in store when it comes to transportation during Pope Francis' visit in September - heaven help us. SEPTA's papal-pass site, which went live at 9 a.m., crashed almost immediately due to high volume. By 10:40 a.m., SEPTA officials had shut down the site and put the sale on hold. Sales will not resume today, but SEPTA is expected to announce today when sales will reopen.

JEFF COPELAND prefers to take his runs outside, on the streets of Francisville. "You get to be a part of humanity that way," Copeland said last night. "You get to see what's going on. " It's an appropriate observation, given the last four years - the time since his release from prison. Copeland, 39, was thrust into the spotlight yesterday when President Obama met with him and then mentioned him by name as an example in his address to the NAACP national convention at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania's nearly two-week budget impasse comes down to one word: Taxes. Throughout negotiations, Democratic Gov. Wolf has uttered the dreaded T-word that Republicans who control the legislature have studiously spent the last four years avoiding. Personal income taxes. Sales taxes. Cigarette taxes. Bank shares taxes. A tax on natural gas drillers. Wolf has proposed hiking them all to erase what has become a recurring deficit in every budget cycle, raise more money for public schools, and finance a bold but controversial plan to lower property taxes in every district.

HARRISBURG - If Gov. Wolf continues to insist on raising taxes as part of any state budget deal, "we're going to be here for a while," a top Republican warned Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R., Centre) made the prediction after emerging from a brief closed-door meeting with the governor. He said the Republicans who control the legislature are open to raising new revenue but cannot support Wolf's plan to raise the state's personal income and sales taxes. The governor wants to use a block of that money to pay for a sweeping property tax-relief plan.

SEPTA's Regional Rail engineers moved a step closer to being able to strike early next year, after the National Mediation Board on Thursday ended its efforts to broker an agreement.

The 220 engineers, represented by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, said they would accept arbitration, but SEPTA will not, spokeswoman Jerri Williams said.
