          Man faces jail for refusing sewage service
A Cecil, Pa., man said he is prepared to go to jail as part 
of his running battle to stop the city from forcing him to 
use the local sewage system.  William Williams, 78, said he 
refuses to use any public utilities and has previously been 
jailed for 30 days after he repeatedly removed a guy wire
from an Allegheny Power utility pole on his property, the 
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday.  He says the
Washington County Sewage Council is after him for refusing 
to give up his septic tanks and tap into the sewage system.
"I don't like to see big outfits like this giving all this
(hassle) to the people," Williams said. "These companies 
are trying to barge in on everybody."  If the council takes
Williams to court, he could face a fine of up to $5,000 and 
up to 30 days in jail. Each day he fails to comply with a
city ordinance requiring use of the sewage system can be 
counted as a separate offense by prosecutors.  However, 
Williams said he is prepared to argue his case in court.
"If they want to play hard ball, I'll play hard ball," he
said.

           Space alien advocate descends on DNC
A Denver man who wants a wing of the government to study 
space aliens said he plans to hold a news conference during
the Democratic National Convention.  Jeff Peckman said his
proposal for the creation of an Extraterrestrial Affairs
Commission will be the centerpiece of his news conference 
on extraterrestrials and the "technologies that they appear
willing to offer," The Rocky Mountain News reported.
He said the conference was timed to coincide with the 
Democratic National Convention -- where Sen. Barack Obama,
D-Ill., is likely to be formally nominated as the party's 
candidate for president -- to take advantage of the media 
exposure.  "Having so many foreign media here I think will
be a good lesson for the American media about how seriously
this subject can be treated and how serious of a subject 
it is," he said.

          Poll: gas is No. 1 inflation concern
A majority of U.S. adults in a Gallup poll pointed to 
gasoline first and food second when assessing the negative
impact of recent price hikes, researchers said.  Gallup
pollsters said that nearly all respondents -- 97 percent -- 
in a July 10-13 survey indicated gasoline prices had gone 
up "a lot" since the January. When asked to whether gas or
food price hikes had the most negative impact, respondents
indicated gas price hikes by a 5-to-1 margin, Gallup said.
"Americans see the world as 'gas first,' with all other
costs falling significantly behind," the Gallup report said.
In the poll, a majority of the 1,016 respondents indicated 
prices had gone up at least "a little" in every category 
except electronics and services "such as haircuts, 
landscaping and dry cleaning," Gallup said The sampling
includes a margin of error of 3 percentage points, Gallup 
said.
