Staying On the Same Page

As printed in The Washington Times, August 7, 2001 Stories continue to circulate that President Bush negotiated the details of the major education plan without the input of his own secretary of education, Rod Paige. For a short time, there were even rumors that Mr. Paige intended to resign to protest his marginal role in the process. As it turns out, the latter was idle gossip, the former hyperbole.

Appeals Court Upholds Dismissal of Lawsuit Over Easley Ads

BY Gary d. Robertson

The state Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a Republican consultant over public service announcements featuring Democrat Mike Easley. While attorney general, Easley - now governor - used money received from court settlements involving his office to finance TV and radio ads publicizing a new state law against predatory lending practices. Other ads cautioned people to watch for unlawful telemarketers. The last series of ads, which featured Easley prominently, ran in the fall of 1999.

America Still Needs Energy Plan

Wake up, America. Don’t let those lower gas prices lull you into complacency. America is currently facing the most severe energy shortage since the 1970’s oil embargoes. While mostly identified through rolling blackouts in California, the nation as a whole is suffering from higher energy costs and limited supply. Our country currently suffers under an outdated and ill-conceived energy structure. Despite growing populations and rising standards of living, not a single major oil refinery has been built in over a decade.

Tax Lines Drawn

BY Anna Griffin

Gov. Mike Easley and General Assembly leaders heard conflicting but stark messages Tuesday as they continued to seek solutions to the state's worst budget crisis in at least a decade. First, Easley's top economic advisers warned that a combination of significant tax increases and spending cuts are unavoidable if the state is to balance its budget and keep its AAA bond rating.

BY Christopher Kirkpatrick

RALEIGH - Protesters gathered at the Legislative Building on Tuesday to oppose plans to raise sales and income taxes to close a budget hole. Inside during a House session, Speaker of the House Jim Black, a Mecklenburg County Democrat, announced that people from across the state had come to the General Assembly and that some were in the gallery.

Funding Isn't the Point...

BY Martha Jenkins

As a member of Citizens for a Sound Economy, I resent Paula Wolf's quoted comment in your July 31 article "Tax-increase foes plan a 'Tar Heel Tea Party'." Wolf downplayed the rally on Tuesday by claiming that CSE is a "national organization funded by big business around the country."

Protesters' Squall Hits Budget Stall

BY Wade Rawlins

The two sides of North Carolina's tax debate weighed in loudly Tuesday, when a spirited group of 600 anti-tax demonstrators waved posters and chanted slogans behind the Legislative Building, and Gov. Mike Easley pledged not to sign a budget that jeopardizes the state's financial health.

Business Chiefs Skip Tea Party

BY Rob Christensen

Guess who didn't attend Tuesday's anti-tax "tea party" at the General Assembly? Big bidness. It's not that big bidness is anti-social or that its people didn't learn the correct way to drink a cup of tea - pinkie extended - at the country club. No, big bidness is on the opposite side of the issue from the big tea bags of the anti-tax movement: The Citizens for a Sound Economy, the John Locke Foundation, the state Republican Party, and the conservative talk-radio announcers.
