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.

TRENTON - Lawmakers reached agreement Monday on a proposed constitutional amendment to expand casinos to North Jersey, breaking a weeks-long impasse that exposed tensions within the state Democratic Party ahead of the 2017 governor's race. "This involved a great deal of compromise on the parts of all parties," Gov. Christie said at a Statehouse news conference, where he was joined by Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D., Hudson), who were locked in a standoff over the issue.

Of all the things Pennsylvania 's divided government failed to fix in 2015 - the budget, pensions, schools, liquor sales - the one that leaves the business community feeling extra bemused is taxes. So many proposals: A natural gas extraction tax! An end to local property taxes, balanced by higher income taxes or broader sales taxes! Liquor-sale reform, to fund the cash-starved pensions! Special rates for business buildings! So far, it's none of the above. Gov. Wolf 's selective vetoes of the budget, his demands for more school funds, Republican insistence that new spending be paid for, and the lack of consensus on who should pay have business guessing.

When Moody's Investors Services downgraded the credit rating of the Philadelphia Corp. for Aging this week, it cited the tax-exempt organization's unwillingness to adjust to the lack of state funding during Harrisburg's nearly six-month budget stalemate. "I'm sorry, I'm not going to close programs," PCA's president, Holly Lange, said Thursday. "They can say I'm a poor manager, they can say whatever they want, I'm not going to close programs. " Instead, PCA has burned though a $10 million line of credit and a $4 million temporary increase in its credit line.

HARRISBURG - Following a two-day break, House members returned to the Capitol on Sunday night and began positioning several budget-related bills for a full chamber vote, a step toward potentially ending the five-month-old budget stalemate. Still, significant questions remained about issues that have loomed large throughout the impasse, including which taxes might be raised to fund a $30.8 billion budget proposed by Gov. Wolf and Senate Republicans, and how $350 million in new school funding would be distributed as part of that plan.

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania's budget impasse entered its sixth month Tuesday, with scant new details about what shape a final deal might take. Frustrated lawmakers emerged from closed-door meetings with few revelations about if, how, or where progress had been made. Some rank-and-file House members wondered aloud what they might eventually vote on, and when. "The devil is in the details," said Rep. Gene DiGirolamo (R., Bucks). "And we haven't gotten details. " Scott Petri, another Bucks County Republican, said it seemed as if rumors swirl faster in the Capitol than real information.

It seemed like an inevitable display of frustration after days of mixed messages from Harrisburg on the fate of the long-overdue state budget. On Wednesday morning, Delaware County officials called a news conference to announce that they might stop sending payments to the state - and use the cash to fund local human services programs already owed $40 million in overdue state aid. "How can [the state] keep our state parks open, our liquor stores open," said County Council member Dave White, "and not fund services to our young victims of abuse and neglect?"

A dozen students received regular help and tutoring at the Exton center; nine went to Bridgeville.

THE PHILADELPHIA School District will be forced to borrow millions of dollars to meet payroll through the end of the year because of the state budget impasse, officials said yesterday. With no end in sight to the stalemate between Gov. Wolf and Republican lawmakers in Harrisburg, the cash-strapped district - by far Pennsylvania's largest - is seeking a short-term loan to pay administrators, teachers and staff through December, according to spokesman Fernando Gallard. The size of the loan is unclear, Gallard said, as the district is still negotiating with lenders to determine its capacity to borrow.

The Coatesville Area School District is considering a line of credit. Garnet Valley might curtail or eliminate programs. Morrisville might not have enough money to pay all its bills. With Gov. Wolf saying this week that he would not advance money to struggling school districts as the state budget impasse drags on, those that rely heavily on state funding are taking increasingly desperate measures to make ends meet. Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania School Boards Association has filed a Commonwealth Court suit against state officials who have been withholding portions of gambling revenue from cash-strapped districts that have stopped making payments to charter schools because of the money crunch.

HARRISBURG - Counties, schools, and social service providers are slowly starting to see the impact of the state's three-month budget impasse. Many have dipped into their reserves, taken out loans, frozen hiring, or suspended services. Some predict layoffs by Thanksgiving. And with little hope of landing a real deal on a new spending plan, legislators are turning to a short-term fix: a stopgap budget authorizing the state to temporarily spend money. Republicans on Friday said they would introduce and vote on the measure this week in the Senate.
