Councilman claims IRS acted unfairly PITTSBURGH (AP) — City Councilman Duane Darkins is accusing the Internal Revenue Service of unfairly attaching his wages. The IRS is garnishing half of the councilman's salary because a radio station he's associated with failed to pay Social Security taxes. "The station never paid into the Social Security fund," parkins said Friday. "I knew nothing about it. I'm only a board member." Darkins is listed on a loan application as secretary of WCXJ, a radio station with a religious format. The station owes the government $22,000 in Social Security taxes. It is owned by Unity Broadcasting Corp. But Darkins denies being an officer of the company or having any involvement with its financial dealings. He does, however, host a show on the station. Since the beginning of the year, the IRS has taken $814 from each of Darkins' twice-monthly city paychecks of $1,639. It claims that Unity failed to pay into the Social Security fund from Jan. 1 to March 31,1990. parkins' attorney, Paul Yagelski, said Darkins was not responsible for the debt because he was not a company officer during that time. WCXJ has been accused of defaulting on nearly $400,000 in loans from federal, state and local agencies. Males 'skirt' ban on shorts with skirts OIL CITY, Pa. (AP) — Skirting the issue has taken on a new meaning at a Venango County high school. Several male high school students found an unusual way to skirt a ban on wearing shorts to class. They went to school in dresses. Oil City Senior High School administrators sent 10 students home Friday for wearing shorts, said John Ward, assistant principal of the school. On Thursday, 177 students received one-day suspensions for the same violation of the school's dress code. Lori Eismont, a junior who was sent home Friday, said a number of male students came to school wearing skirts. She said the school allows girls to wear skirts and did not suspend the boys for doing so. Dick Snyder, principal of the school, did not return a phone call seeking comment. He said Thursday he would not discuss discipline with the news media. The school allowed students to wear short pants last year but changed the policy because some students wore shorts cut more than 2 inches above the knee. Students said they had been warned by school officials that anyone wearing shorts would be suspended. Ms. Eismont and sophomore Mary Blake said they plan to take the dress code issue to the school district board of education meeting Monday.

(AP) — The death of a worker at the construction site of Greater Pittsburgh International Airport's new terminal was accidental, a coroner ruled. Deputy Coroner Arthur Gilkes recommended friday that no criminal charges be filed. Antonio Distazio, 57, of Pittsburgh was killed Aug. 14 when a precast concrete beam collapsed at the Midfield Terminal site. Gilkes said the accident resulted from the failure of fabricators and inspectors to read "the shop drawings in the same way the design engineer and the consultant did." The designers and manufacturers did not realize until after the accident that they had been reading the plans differently, Gilkes said. He said in order to support a criminal charge, the prosecution would have to show a conscious disregard for human life or gross negligence. That could not be proven in this case, he said.
