By Riley Yates Of The Morning Call If you've fallen behind in your car payments, you could be getting a visit from someone like Wayne Treible.

A repossession man for nearly a decade, Treible knows your tricks: when you park down the block, or trade cars with a relative, or insist the check was just mailed. In any scenario, he says, he'll end up getting your ride. "I'm one of the nicer repo guys," said Treible, who owns a Stroud Township wrecking company.

"We have broken windows, there's a section of the roof torn up and the water's pouring through," Sperling said, but the district will marshal resources to pull things together as quickly as possible. "We might be able to go on Monday," he said. Sperling could not say how large a section of roof on the sprawling, one -story building was damaged, but a large swath of flexible plastic -like sub -roofing material was draped over the top of the planetarium.
