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.

Hours after Donald Trump said he hoped Russia had hacked into Hillary Clinton's private server and obtained some of her email correspondence as secretary of state, GOP surrogates sought to reshape Trump's message. "I'm sure what he means is they should be released to the FBI," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at a news conference in South Philadelphia, referring to the roughly 30,000 emails Clinton deleted, which she has said were personal in nature. The State Department had requested Clinton's emails to comply with a House investigation into the 2012 attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

"Here at this very intersection, the expressway has a troubling impact," Mayor Kenney said during a news conference at 10th Street Plaza, which crosses over the expressway and its brisk traffic.

Debate over guns resumed in Trenton on Thursday, as Democrats challenged Gov. Christie and sought to tighten New Jersey's laws. Backed by advocates, Senate President Stephen Sweeney announced plans to try to override the Republican governor's veto of a bill that would require domestic violence offenders to surrender firearms.
