The current and former minority chairmen of the House Consumer Affairs Committee, both Bucks County Republicans, accept campaign money from utilities even though the committee oversees the utility industry. Despite the fact there is no legislative election this year, state Reps. James L. Wright Jr. and Edward F. Burns Jr. have scheduled a Harrisburg fund- raising event for June 12 to which they have invited a number of utilities or utility lobbyists. Both contended in interviews that they have not and do not accept contributions from utilities, saying that the purchase of a ticket by a utility to a fund-raising event is not the same as a campaign contribution.

A report Tuesday by the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB Hub) in the Navy Yard recommends that utilities provide a one-stop outlet for energy consumption data for building owners to comply with Philadelphia's new benchmarking law. The city's biggest utility, Peco Energy Co., has already initiated plans to create an automated data transfer service aimed at easing compliance with the benchmarking law, which requires owners of large commercial buildings...

SOME PEOPLE have all the luck. In May, It's Our Money reported that taxpayers covered hundreds of thousands of dollars in utility bills for Water Works Restaurant & Lounge, a private business owned by the politically connected Michael Karloutsos. Now, It's Our Money has found that taxpayers also paid for utilities used by Boathouse Row Café, another business owned by Karloutsos. He leased space in city-owned Lloyd Hall, which he shared with the Parks and Recreation Department.

With Pennsylvania electricity consumers facing record rate increases in the next few years, what's the state Senate doing guarding the bottom line of Peco Energy Co. and other utilities? Having delayed action for months on a House-approved energy-savings measure, the Senate last week suddenly gutted key consumer protections in the bill. Utilities will be the winners; consumers and the state's business climate the losers. The Senate approach would leave consumers even more vulnerable to looming double-digit rate increases.

In 1989, Philadelphia Electric Co. charged off $27 million it couldn't collect from customers - about 1 percent of total revenue. That was about $3 million to $4 million higher than the year before, said Charles Rogala, PE's manager of customer service and accounts. To nudge these laggards out of their monthly bill-paying complacency, PE is doing what more and more utilities are doing: turning over to national credit agencies all customer-account information - good and bad. This means that whether customers pay their bills on time, a few days late or routinely relegate them to the nearest dumpster, credit agencies will have their number the next time they try for a mortgage, car loan or other form of credit.

With Irene long gone, the lights are finally back on for most of those who lost electricity last weekend in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey. Area utilities say that of the hundreds of thousands who lost power in the region, all but a few thousand have electricity again. However, PSE&G, a major supplier in New Jersey, says there are still about 15,000 customers without power in North and Central Jersey, which were particularly hard hit by the storm and resulting floods.

Both the electricity and gas have been turned off at the Berean Institute since utility workers found that service was being provided at the historic location, but that there was no official record of service with the two utilities. The gas and electric were shut off Aug. 30, according to a worker with ABO Haven, a job-training company that said it signed a lease with Berean to rent office and classroom space for $9,000 a month. The worker said both the gas and electric were turned off the same day a story appeared in the Daily News about a leasing conflict between ABO Haven and Berean Institute, on Girard Avenue near 19th Street.

Three state legislators yesterday unveiled a plan to fight future rate shocks by public utilities involving state-mandated projects. "This should be a simple matter of state mandate, state pay," said Assemblyman Steve Petrillo, the bill's chief sponsor. The legislation, to be introduced Sept. 28 in the state Senate, would require the state to finance, through bonds and low-interest loans, any public-utility projects that arise from its mandates. It also would require privately owned utilities to extend the period that they can recover costs from large projects to more than 30 years, in order to spread out the costs charged to ratepayers.

DEAR ABBY: I am 32, married for a year and a half, with no children yet. I am an only child who was raised by my mother until I was 14 because my father was in prison. My mother never remarried. She blames me for her never having found anyone, and she is resentful of my marriage. She doesn't get along with anyone, not family, co-workers or "friends. " She thinks my husband is her handyman to use around her house. The reality is, my husband works all the time, and when he does have any free time, I either want to spend it with him or need him to do things around our home.

The Cherokee band kept playing, but it didn't stop the energy from draining out of the stadium. A Timber Creek offense known for its flash, for its big plays and gaudy numbers, was lulling a rowdy crowd to sleep. The game-winning drive was methodical. It was smash mouth. It was slow. It was boring. And it worked. "It shows," said Chargers coach Rob Hinson, "that we can play any style we need to. " Timber Creek, the second-ranked team in the Inquirer's top 25, topped No. 9 Cherokee, 28-21, on Friday night thanks to an 80-yard drive that lasted 19 plays and consumed 10 minutes of the fourth quarter.
