Clausi to have operation Wednesday

SUNBURY - Northumberland County Commissioner Chairman Vinny Clausi said he will have surgery Wednesday that will have him laid up for three to five days. After that, he will return to his duties, but only by phone for a period of six to eight weeks.

Clausi said he did not want to offer any specifics on the operation.

Asked to address a comment he made during WKOK's "On the Mark" program on Thursday that he would seek a third term, Clausi acknowledged he blurted it out, and that he really isn't sure. He has said before that he would not serve more than two terms. He began his second four-year term in January.
