Groups upset over science textbooks, education board rule

BY CONNIE MABIN

Dozens of people want to testify before the State Board of Education about the adoption of new science textbooks. But because of a little-noticed Aug. 7 deadline, whether their opinions are heard Thursday remains to be seen. Only one person made the deadline. Some 86 others have requested to be allowed to testify despite missing the deadline. "People got caught unaware," said David Bradley, who is among the board members who plan to ask for a vote to allow the deadline to be waived.

Groups upset over science textbooks

BY CONNIE MABIN

More than a dozen people lined up in front of the State Board of Education on Thursday to criticize the proposed science textbooks that board members are considering adopting. "I didn't find any of these textbooks that weren't replete with errors of fact, errors of omission and even some pretty overt bias aimed at directing students to take political actions," said Duggan Flanakin, with the conservative think tank Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Group fights higher sales tax

BY Diane Brooks

With only two weeks to spare, Snohomish County's proposed sales-tax increase for transit service has attracted its first official opponent. Washington Citizens for a Sound Economy yesterday announced its opposition to Proposition 1, a measure on the Sept. 18 ballot would increase taxes by 3 cents on every $10 purchase. Community Transit (CT), which operates buses as well as dial-a-ride vans for the disabled and the elderly, last year eliminated all Sunday service in Snohomish County as a result of Initiative 695.

Democrats' Ire Fuels Race for Florida

BY Steve Miller

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Democratic Party headquarters in Palm Beach County is 700 square feet of flaming rhetoric and unapologetic anger. Nine months after the end of the Florida recount wars, the county's Democrats still nurse a combustible brand of vitriol that, as one party operative here says, "will eventually decide the 2004 presidential election." Newspaper reporters still write about the fallout. Radio talk-show callers still lament or celebrate it, depending on their ideology.

The Rise of the Shark

2001 may long be remembered as the year of the shark. No, I’m not talking about the carnivorous sort that has been terrifying swimmers along the Eastern shores of the United States. The shark I’m thinking of is trial lawyer-turned-Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.
