Richard Mellon Scaife’s physical property continues on its path to liquidation with a Christie’s auction of furniture, ceramics and collectibles June 30 and July 1. While Mr. Scaife’s inheritance tax return, due since April, has yet to be filed,... A $100 million check was hand-delivered to the Westmoreland County Register of Wills in October to cover the estimated inheritance tax Mr. Scaife’s estate owes to the state. “Most likely they are liquidating so they can pay taxes and start making distributions,” said Michael Hussey, associate professor of law at Widener University’s Harrisburg campus and expert in tax law. Christie’s will auction more than 500 pieces, which are expected to fetch between $2 million and $3 million.

A chance conversation inspired me to cure Canadian peameal bacon at home, from scratch. That he often makes Canadian peameal bacon, a regional specialty of Toronto. You may be familiar with it if you’ve ever visited Toronto and had the iconic dish of the St. Lawrence Market, peameal bacon sandwiches. While peameal bacon is pretty much unknown “down here,” “up there” it is about the equivalent of pastrami in Manhattan or cheesesteak in Philadelphia. Canadians and Americans who live near the border are passionate about this bacon. And as is true for grits in the South, peameal bacon can carry big emotional attachments. “Canadian bacon” as sold in U. S. supermarkets is an invented American pork product. Made from a whole pork loin, it is brined, smoked, pre-sliced and pre-packaged as a breakfast meat. Canadian bacon sold in Canada is known as peameal bacon. Peameal bacon, also made from a whole pork loin and brined, is rolled in golden cornmeal and sold whole and uncooked. Key words here are “brined,” “uncooked” and “peameal.
The president of McKees Rocks Borough Council spent much of Monday in jail after officials said he threatened his son and officers, prompting a stand-off with a local SWAT team Sunday night. Mayor John Muhr said he planned to meet with the borough’s solicitor and police chief before making any comments. McKees Rocks police were called to the Catherine Street home of Mr. Schwab, 53, after his son called 911 about 7:30 p. m. to report that Mr. Schwab, who was intoxicated, had threatened him with an aluminum baseball bat. As one officer walked down a set of basement steps, he spotted Mr. Schwab and heard a round being loaded into the gun, according to a criminal complaint. Schwab told officers, “I don’t think it would be a good idea to come down here,” police said. Schwab’s wife and McKees Rocks police Chief Robert Cifrulak called him on a phone. Schwab told his wife he had “thousands of rounds” and told the chief he had “bullets that can penetrate vests,” according to the complaint. Schwab also threatened to “detonate propane tanks within the house” before he walked outside about 12:30 a. m. and was arrested, police said.
