Piper 'Lucky' man sells jackpot By The Associated Press PITTSBURGH — A man whose lottery jackpot brought him nothing but bad luck, persuaded a judge Thursday to auction off the $4.9 million he would have collected over the next 17 years. "I want to get rid of the lottery, believe me, Your Honor. It's really been a pain," William "Bud" Post, who won the Pennsylvania Lottery in 1988, told Bankruptcy Judge Judith K. Fitzgerald before Thursday's auction. Post said he needs the money right away, to pay medical bills for an undisclosed health problem and to appeal an assault conviction (and two- to six-year prison term) for firing a gun to scare his stepdaughter's boyfriend. Since he hit it big, Post's brother has been convicted of trying to kill him, his sixth wife moved out on him, and his landlady won a lawsuit for one-third of Post's winnings. During litigation, he received no lottery payments and couldn't afford to keep a bar and a used-car business he started with siblings. The gas was turned off in his mansion. Judge Fitzgerald finally accepted a $2.65 million bid for the $4.9 million Post would have received during the next 17 years. The winning bidder was Prosperity Partners Inc., a North Palm Beach, Fla., company that offers lottery winners lump sums in return for their future payouts.

Robbery / Police work with banks FROM PAGE A1 Kochanowski said video surveillance images can be assets in criminal investigations. Officers in the police department's crime prevention bureau work with banks and retailers, reminding them to check their surveillance equipment periodically to ensure it is properly positioned, focused and in good repair, Kochanowski said. Crime prevention officers also work with banks and others to educate clerks about how to react if they're robbed. "We want to make sure it's as safe as possible for the employees. Money can be replaced, but a person's life can't be," Kochanowski said. "We ask that they observe what they can, but not take any qhances of getting someone hurt. We don't want them to put their lives at risk." The system worked in the Wednesday robbery, Kochanowski said. The robber, armed with a rifle, "We ask that they (bank employees) observe what they can, but not take any chances of getting someone hurt. We don't want them to put their lives at risk." Glen Kochanowski assistant Salina police chief made off with more than $500, Kochanowski said, but no one was hurt. Kochanowski wouldn't say exactly how much money was taken, and Bennington State Bank Vice President Mike Benjamin declined to comment. Kochanowski said the robber asked a 34-year-old female clerk to give him money, then put the money in a white bag he provided. He went out a west door and fled, possibly in a rust-colored, burgundy or maroon 1980 to 1985 Chevette. The clerk declined comment Thursday. Injured TOM DORSEY/The Salina Journal Salina emergency medical technicians assist a driver after an accident Thursday at the intersection of Marymount Road and Highway 140. Arthur Kennedy, 24, 511 W. South, and Damian Allegree, 18,405 Reed, were treated at Salina Regional Health Center after the collision that occurred around 3:45 p.m. Thursday. Kennedy was westbound on Highway 140 when Allegree failed to yield at the intersection of Marymount Road. Kennedy struck Allegree's vehicle, police said. Kennedy suffered a sprained ankle and cuts and Allegree received a slight concussion. Israelis, Palestinians still fighting Arafat tells Netanyahu there's no need to meet without plans for peace By The Associated Press JERUSALEM — Their fragile peace going up in thick black smoke, Palestinian police and Israeli troops fought with automatic weapons Thursday at holy sites and in the streets of the West Bank and Gaza, where thousands of Palestinians burned tires, threw stones and called for a revolution. With at least 38 Palestinians and 11 Israelis killed in one day, the pitched level of violence surpassed that of the worst days of the six-year "intefadeh" — the Palestinian revolt against Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza that ended in 1993 with a breakthrough peace accord. At least 43 Palestinians, 11 Israelis and one Egyptian army officer have been killed since the clashes began Tuesday, bringing the three-day death toll to 55. Embattled areas Thursday resembled war zones, with smoke from burning tires blackening skies dotted by Israeli helicopter gunships. Prime Minister Benjamin Ne- tanyahu returned to Israel on Thursday and went into an emergency cabinet meeting on the cri- sis, cutting short a. three-day trip to Europe. He tried to arrange a quick meeting with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to stop the fighting. Arafat told Netanyahu he saw no point in meeting unless Ne- tanyahu presented concrete proposals for implementing the peace agreements. Israel television and radio stations reported that efforts were under way to arrange a meeting of the two leaders with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo today. Despite opposition from the United States, the U.N. Security Council called a formal session today to discuss the mounting violence. In street battles in the garbage- strewn alleys of Gaza and the rocky hilltops of the West Bank, Palestinian police in fatigues hunched behind trees and walls as they fired assault rifles and hurled firebombs at helmeted Israeli soldiers who responded with heavy bursts of gunfire. Traditionally, Palestinians have used stones in their battles with armed Israeli troops. The involvement of the Palestinian police force, created under the peace accord, has made the most recent clashes more deadly. Casualties mounted in part on Thursday because many of the Palestinian police shot wildly and, unlike the Israelis, had no flak jackets. In the West Bank town of Nablus, a fierce gun battle between Palestinian police and Israeli troops broke out after thousands of Palestinians stormed Joseph's Tomb, a Jewish seminary. Six Israeli troops and a Palestinian were killed. After the remaining Israeli troops guarding the tiny enclave were overwhelmed, protesters celebrated by setting fire to their jeeps and an armored personnel carrier. Some of the Israelis lit candles and one kissed a Torah, or Jewish holy book, in prayers for deliverance. An Israeli army spokesman said the situation stabilized in the evening after Palestinian officials imposed a curfew in the vicinity of the tomb. Fighting also broke out in the two tiny settlements of Netzarim and Kfar Darom, isolated enclaves in the heart of the Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, after thousands of Palestinian protesters marched toward the settlements. The violence later spilled into Egypt: An Egyptian army officer was shot dead and a policeman and Palestinian child were wounded. The clashes were set off Tuesday by Israel's decision to open an archaeological tunnel near Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem. ON THE RECORD Hospital report yp;T^Tj^^ ^Numbers The robber had no contact with several other clerks and a customer who were in the bank, Kochanowski said. "I don't know if the others even knew what was going on," Kochanowski said. The other clerks and the customer were not identified. It was the first robbery for the Bennington State Bank, and the first this year in Salina. The robber was described as a white man in his 30s with a moustache, between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall, wearing a green T-shirt with holes, a blue ball cap and sunglasses.
