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.

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.

A LOCAL GROUP of prominent black leaders found "no credible evidence" to support allegations of racism against a Baltimore-based developer that plans to build a casino in South Philly. The Black Clergy of Philadelphia and Vicinity reached its conclusion after a two-month investigation into claims that Cordish Companies engaged in discriminatory enforcement of dress codes and that managers paid white men to pick fights with black patrons as a ruse to boot minorities from Cordish-run entertainment venues in Kansas City, Mo., and Louisville, Ky. Not only did the black clergy's probe find no evidence of racist practices by Cordish, the clergy concluded that the company "has gone over and beyond the goals set for minority inclusion," according to a 17-page report released yesterday.

I GUESS I'm a little confused by the suggestion that the Phillies' hiring of Andy MacPhail as president-in-waiting represents some sort of climactic step toward a new baseball renaissance in our fine city. Sure, you would think last week's announcement will serve as a mere prelude to an offseason in which the executive suite is razed to its foundation and rebuilt from the ground up. But you also would have thought the Phillies would have made such a move sometime before the most pivotal two-month stretch of the baseball calendar, when the draft, the international signing period and the trade deadline combine to present an organization with a slew of decisions that will still be dictating its fate five to 10 years from now. You would have thought it would have taken something less extreme than one of the worst rosters ever assembled to finally get John Middleton out in front of a microphone.

With nearly 90 days until Pope Francis visits Philadelphia, a delegation led by Mayor Nutter and Archbishop Charles J. Chaput is returning to Rome for final preparations. The delegation, which left early Sunday evening and is to arrive in Rome on Monday morning, last traveled to the Vatican in March 2014 to meet Pope Francis and invite him to Philadelphia. This time around it's all about logistics - and promotions for the international World Meeting of Families convention and the papal visit.

MAYOR NUTTER yesterday angrily denied that he asked Philadelphia NAACP president Minister Rodney Muhammad to scrap a Thursday news conference at which the civil rights official planned to discuss allegations that a company that won state approval to build a South Philadelphia casino discriminates against black patrons in other cities. The Daily News reported yesterday that after Nutter made phone calls to Muhammad and to an official at the national NAACP office, Muhammad pulled the plug on the news conference that would have painted the Cordish Co. of Baltimore in a bad light.

Until the last minute, Philadelphia NAACP president Rodney Muhammad was set to denounce a developer who intends to build a casino in South Philadelphia. Muhammad was to star at a City Hall news conference Thursday to release a report on alleged racist practices by Baltimore-based Cordish Cos. He decided not to attend, he said Friday, after receiving a call from Mayor Nutter, who said they needed to talk, and a second call from national NAACP officials. Without Muhammad's presence, the news conference, organized by Jason Ortiz, a managing director with consulting firm Metropolitan Public Strategies of New York, unraveled.

Chip Kelly doesn't like wasting time. Whatever else we know about the Eagles coach as the preparations for his third NFL season begin, we know that much. He practices fast. He plays fast. He talks fast. If he wants to acquire a player or get rid of one, that doesn't take long, either. Kelly doesn't care for those who waste their own time, which is precisely what he thinks the league's competition committee did when it made a halfway alteration to the conversion-after-touchdown rule.
