THE UNION is set to make what the club has deemed a "major announcement" in a noon news conference today at PPL Park. Both Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz and interim manager Jim Curtin are slated to attend, which suggests the announcement regards a roster move. Recent reports have pegged the Union as showing interest in Algerian World Cup goalkeeper Rais M'Bolhi, spotted earlier this month in a PPL Park box watching a game with Sakiewicz. M'Bolhi, 28, spent last season with Bulgarian club CKSA Sofia and has played in the last two World Cups.

T. MILTON STREET Sr. said he will soon add a new chapter to the sordid Pennsylvania political embarrassment that is Porngate - all thanks to a Harrisburg source he's calling "Deep Throat. " (Yeah. Let that sink in for a minute.) Street, who ran unsuccessfully in the spring for the Democratic mayoral nomination, said yesterday that he plans to host a news conference on Nov. 5 outside the District Attorney's Office to unveil more pornographic emails that prosecutor Frank Fina allegedly sent and received while he worked for the state Attorney General's Office several years ago. The emails are different from the controversial batch of exchanges the state Supreme Court made public in late August.

President Bush turned up the heat on Congress yesterday to pass his budget and tax-cut plan, using his first White House news conference to urge lawmakers to hear what he called "the message of the people. " Offering small jokes and appearing unpolished at times, Bush offered a sharp stylistic contrast to his predecessor. On substantive matters, however, he fielded a wide range of domestic and foreign-policy questions and tried to turn public attention from former President Bill Clinton's pardons to his own proposals to slash taxes and reform education.

News conferences have always been an ordeal for Ronald Reagan, and they have become increasingly unbearable for him as their frequency has diminished. Most of the President's 39 formal televised news conferences the past six years have been studies in frustration on both sides. They have frustrated Reagan by imposing demands on his conceptual understanding and command of facts he has been unable or unwilling to meet. Unlike several of his predecessors, Reagan is not hostile to reporters.

When one of the Democratic candidates for Delaware County Council called a news conference on open space yesterday, he expected the reporters to show up. He wasn't expecting the campaign manager of his opponents to be on hand with a rebuttal. David Landau, who held the news conference with State Rep. Bryan Lentz (D., Delaware), criticized the all-Republican County Council for not requesting any of the $2.7 million allocated to Delaware County from the state's Growing Greener II initiative.

Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) is scheduled to hold a news conference in Philadelphia today, two days after announcing that he has Hodgkin's disease. Specter, 75, most likely will seek to dispel any doubts about his ability to continue as senator and as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The senator missed a committee meeting yesterday as he remained in Philadelphia. It is unclear when his treatment for Hodgkin's, a cancer of the lymph system, will begin. He is scheduled to undergo chemotherapy every two weeks for the next 24 to 32 weeks, according to his oncologist, John H. Glick of Penn's Abramson Cancer Center.

President Reagan had some trouble living up to his "Great Communicator" label last night at his first news conference in almost four months. Though he tossed off some sharp one-liners and made headlines with his remarks about "flaky" Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, the President committed a series of flubs during his 35-minute session with reporters. Reagan got off to a shaky start at the podium in the East Room when he talked about the recent terrorist attack on the "Vietnam" airport.

Gov. Christie plans to nominate former federal prosecutor Walter Timpone to the New Jersey Supreme Court, a move that could end a years-long stalemate by filling the court's last vacant seat with a Democrat. Joined by Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) at a Statehouse news conference Monday, the Republican governor said he and Sweeney, who have long battled over the court's composition, had reached a "bipartisan agreement. " "There's no secret that I would have preferred to nominate a Republican, and I did, a number of times," Christie said.

MOST SPORTS team owners do not have the look-at-me personalities of the Cowboys' Jerry Jones or the Mavericks' Mark Cuban - perhaps it's a Dallas thing. The majority of these multibillionaires prefer to stay in the background, away from the spotlight and the prying eyes. Put them in a boardroom and they'll dazzle you with the skills that earned them their fortunes. Put them in front of a microphone and you wonder how they managed to make their first dime. Sixers principal owner Josh Harris was having some moments Sunday.

A news conference by the National Transportation Safety Board Sunday evening was light on details, leaving unanswered the most pressing questions from the crash. The investigative agency declined to answer questions about what the work crew was doing, how a maintenance vehicle ended up on an active track and why the train's operators were not made aware the maintenance crew was there. These would all be questions explored by their investigation, which they said would look at mechanical, operations, track, human performance, scheduling and survival factors.

A few weeks before he was to attend the NFL meetings, Chip Kelly checked the number of Philadelphia-area reporters who were given credentials to cover the annual gathering of billionaire owners and their millionaire coaches, presidents, and general managers. Only four requests had been approved at the time. Kelly called one of the few Eagles employees who still cared to speak to him - and vice versa - to ask if the number was accurate. The new 49ers coach had become accustomed to the large contingent of Philly media that previously followed him to the meetings and often made his table during the mandatory interview the most attended.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie, battling a perception that he had deserted New Jersey to campaign for Donald Trump, said Thursday that he was "back to work" in the Statehouse and firmly engaged on issues such as the budget and a fight over the state Supreme Court. During a freewheeling, one-hour-and- 45-minute news conference, Christie threatened "ramifications" for Senate President Stephen Sweeney's refusal to consider the governor's nominee for the state's highest court, declared that Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto would be responsible for Atlantic City's fate if he blocked legislation that would allow the state to take over the resort's finances, and described a united New Jersey GOP despite signs of friction.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - In order for Ryan Howard and the Phillies to make it through 2016 with anything close to a functional relationship, the first baseman will need to be more honest with himself than he was with the media on Tuesday afternoon. That's not an impossibility, even after a news conference in which the onetime superstar sounded incredulous that somebody might harbor doubts about his role with the club moving forward. Even back when he was hitting 50 home runs per season as one of the most productive cleanup men in the game, Howard's sensitivity to criticism sometimes led him to react to questions in a way that suggested he was living in a different reality from the rest of the world.
