The Death of an Energy Giant: Enron (1985-2002)

In September of 2000, Enron was the nation's 7th largest corporation with a market capitalization of nearly $60 billion. Less than 14 months later, its stock was worthless and the business was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors. Such an astonishing collapse has not only raised eyebrows, but also outraged investors, policymakers and much of the public.

Radical Environmental Groups Push to Enact $35 Billion Energy Tax on Texas

On January 18th, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) is scheduled to consider a report containing staff recommendations in response to a petition by a coalition of environmental organizations seeking to reduce CO2 and methane levels in Texas below 1990 levels. Whatever these extreme environmental groups may call their plan, it should not go unnoticed that these provisions are identical to the so-called U.N. Global Warming Treaty, known more commonly as the Kyoto Protocol. This is a treaty which the US Senate unanimously rejected and which even Japan has now rejected the treaty.

Victory for Local Anti-Annexation Forces

Wilmington City Councilman and CSE member Jason Thompson introduced a motion and led debate to amend the city's charter to allow people to vote on whether to be annexed, which resulted in a 4-3 vote by the City Council. This vote enables state lawmakers to introduce a bill for New Hanover County that will not allow annexation without the vote of the people.

Groups could heat up local politics

BY ROB SHAPARD

 HILLSBOROUGH - First, there was Citizens for a Better Way, a group that formed in Orange County last year and campaigned against the $ 75 million bond package that voters approved in November, saying the timing was wrong to take on that much new debt.

BY Mary Ellen Klas

State Reps. Connie Mack and Joe Negron take their promise to bring fresh thinking to the Florida Legislature seriously. They - and seven other conservative Republicans, all first- or second-term lawmakers - this week came up with a novel way to advance their less-government, anti-tax philosophy.

City taxes protested / Some in annexed areas haven t paid

BY Bettie Fennell

Wilmington's newly annexed residents haven't paid more than a third of the taxes they owe for the first nine months they were in the city. Only 63 percent of taxes owed by residents who were annexed Sept. 30, 2000, have been paid for the nine-month period that ended June 30, 2001, said New Hanover County Tax Administrator Bob Glasgow. He said about 100 of those taxpayers paid under protest by submitting letters that say they don't consent to Wilmington's taxing authority, now or in the future.

Daschle's War on Bush

© 2002 Copley News Service, 1/9/2002 One of my New Year's resolutions was to give Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle a second chance after he scuttled the so-called economic stimulus package. But a week into the New Year I find myself having to break that resolution after hearing the Democratic leader rail against President George W. Bush. While Bush is fighting a war against terrorism around the world, Daschle is waging war against the president on the home front.

Economic Growth Vs. Debt Phobia

When Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill stated Sunday on Meet the Press that postponing the tax cut wouldn't help the economy, Tim Russert asked: "Will you continue to press for the implementation of the tax cut if it means deficits, or tapping into the Social Security trust fund?" Secretary O'Neill knew the right answer, but because debt-phobia has possessed many in the Republican Party, he could only whisper it in code: "The nicety of an accountant's surplus (is) not good economics."
