WASHINGTON - The House on Friday approved the second in a series of bills to limit the president's authority to regulate business, which Republicans said was necessary for job creation and which Democrats called a political power grab. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R., Ohio), who said the package was a top priority, will have difficulty winning final passage of the bill, which the White House has threatened to veto. Still, Republicans said the votes would highlight the government's role in regulating business, which they have made a major campaign issue.

Are any package tours planned for the 1990 World Cup soccer championships in Italy? Is it possible to get individual game tickets? The Italian organizing committee is keeping a tight lock on promotional activities and tour packages, and the only way you are likely to obtain tickets is through one of the few officially delegated agencies, and then only as part of a package. Watching the playoffs may be no easy matter, since soccer fans who want to see more than one of their favorite teams may have to travel to more than one city.

The $60,000 benefits package that would go to Upper Darby's 11 council members under a home rule charter amendment is merely a restoration of benefits taken away four years ago, according to township solicitor Alvin S. Ackerman. Ackerman made the comment to about 15 people Thursday night at a hearing on 12 proposed charter changes, which will go before the voters as a referendum in the April 26 primary election. All of the six township residents who addressed the commission expressed concern about the change that would grant the council members pension, and health- and life-insurance benefits on a par with the township's chief administrative officer, F. Raymond Shay.

The arrival at the University of Pennsylvania of more than $1 million worth of cocaine in hollowed-out books leads police to believe they are dealing with an established operation, law enforcement sources said. A police source said a shipment of nearly five pounds of cocaine indicates "this was not the first shipment. " The source said cocaine suppliers shipping goods through the mail probably would not send such a large stash on the first mailing. "You build up to that amount," he said, "once you realize that it's getting through OK. " The source speculated that someone put up a substantial down payment for the 2.2 kilograms found Friday.

"We were kind of shocked, quite frankly," said Howard Wells, president of Teamsters Local 676, which represents more than 200 of the workers waiting for a new contract. DRPA management communicated with the governor's office throughout the negotiation process and was hopeful that the terms would be acceptable to Trenton.

By Michelle Nunn The saying goes that those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it. But I fear that people who aren't familiar with one remarkable chapter in American history will be doomed not to repeat it. And it bears repeating. This chapter launched from right here in Philadelphia in the wake of World War II, when the cargo ship American Traveller left carrying 15,000 boxes of food for families clinging to survival in war-torn Europe. The shipment had been organized by a new humanitarian group called CARE.

ATLANTIC CITY - Despite changes made at his request, Gov. Christie on Tuesday did not sign bills designed to rescue the finances of the seaside resort, rocked by a cratering casino industry. His so-called pocket veto of the Atlantic City legislation - on the last day he could have taken action - left local leaders aghast and fuming. "Bankruptcy is now back on the table," Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian said. "It's certainly very sad for somebody running for public office to head up our country to try to double cross and renege on his word.

An inflatable doll reminiscent of a blow-up sex toy was pulled from the shelves of the West Chester University campus bookstore Friday after protests from students and others on social media. The Sensational Inflatables product bears a cartoon of a woman in her underwear on the package and says "Inflate for an instant date!" However, the university said social media users had taken the doll out of context. The figures are only 6 inches tall when inflated and were leftover gag gifts from Valentine's Day, said university spokeswoman Loretta MacAlpine.
