County Having Trouble With Treasurer Tue Mar 22, 8:11 PM ET Strange News - AP By JOE MANDAK, Associated Press Writer NEW CASTLE, Pa. - First, county Treasurer Gary Felasco hadn't paid his property taxes for years.

    The old saying, "to carry coals to Newcastle", has taken a literal twist after a deal to import thousands of tons of coal to the Port of Tyne from Russia. It was coined as an expression for a superfluous act or taking something to where it was already plentiful and was first recorded in 1538. That meaning could soon be as redundant as all but one of the pits in the once coal-rich north-east of England. The Port of Tyne, which used to export 23 million tons a year from the Durham and Northumberland coalfields, has just received its first...
