A Bishop of the People

BY Claire M; Lynch; Pat McDonough; Steve Sloane; Patrick J; Kerley; Jason Thomas

Last Tuesday, on the day that President George W. Bush gave his State of the Union Address and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's daughter was charged with prescription fraud, something monumental happened here on Long Island. The Most Rev. John Raymond McGann, bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, died at the age of 77 ["A Humble Man," Jan. 29]. The second bishop of Rockville Centre, McGann was installed in 1976, succeeding bishop Walter P. Kellenberg. Day after day and year after year, McGann reached out to his flock of parishioners - to millions of Roman Catholics from Elmont to Shelter Island. He was equally tireless in his interfaith efforts. He was a friend of my family's for 40 years. I first met McGann when I was 6 years old, when he was Msgr. McGann at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre. He was a people's priest, and I never thought he aspired to a higher office, but when called upon to be bishop of Rockville Centre he stepped up to the plate. He was as at home working a room as he was on the altar. He was witty, charismatic and had an uncanny knack for matching a name to a face. Always. I believe the day he was ordained a priest was the happiest day of his life, and he spent a lifetime doing what he loved. We grieve for Bishop John McGann. He will be greatly missed.

Easley appoints group to simplify tax code

BY Amy Gardner

Gov. Mike Easley on Friday appointed a panel to tackle one of the toughest tasks in government: tax reform. Easley's picks for the 15-member Commission to Modernize State Finances include elected officials, accountants and other business leaders. The governor is asking the group to simplify the tax code, insulate state revenues from economic downturns, update the tax structure for the modern economy and keep it fair and competitive.

FLORIDIANS SHOULD REJECT MCKAY-PRUITT TAX PLAN

FLORIDIANS SHOULD REJECT MCKAY-PRUITT TAX PLAN

Treasure Coast residents have taken a hit from less tourism revenue and little job creation during the current economic downturn. Our state and local governments should not increase taxes on businesses (which pass these costs on to consumers) and add to the problem. One such example is Sen. Pruitt's backing of the McKay proposal to increase taxes on basic products and services. It is advertised as a tax shift but closer examination reveals it is nothing more than a money grab from you and me.

SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM – OWN YOUR FUTURE

Soundbite: Everyday that passes without congress enacting Social Security reform draws the retirement crises nearer. Genuine reform means the creation of Personal Retirement Accounts (PRA) so that people can create personal wealth and enjoy a secure retirement. Although the war on terrorism has placed enormous demands on the time and resources of legislators, they still must face the fact that the Social Security system is going broke. Without leadership and reform, all Americans will suffer.

Senator Daschle, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the DOJ Need to Re-Assess Priorities and Responsibilities

Soundbite: With our nation our at war and the threat of another terrorist attack at home very real, the importance of the institutions of government responsible for administering justice cannot be overstated. Unfortunately for Americans, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Senator Patrick Leahy (D- Vt.) are stonewalling on President Bush's judicial nominations. Both Democratic Senators are blocking President Bush's nominees from ever receiving a committee hearing or a vote on the Senate floor. This partisan obstructionism is indefensible and harmful to our legal system. Meanwhile, the U.S. Justice Department has been devoting scarce tax dollars towards a baseless racketeering case against the tobacco industry instead of protecting and defending Americans from future terrorist attacks. Americans deserve a Justice Department that places protecting the nation from terrorist attacks ahead of pursuing frivolous lawsuits against law-abiding companies.

POLITICIANS NEED TO CONTROL SPENDING AND MAKE PRESIDENT BUSH'S TAX CUTS PERMANENT!

Soundbite: Despite the devastating effects of September 11, Americans remain committed to fiscal discipline. Out of control, pork barrel spending in the appropriations bills will do nothing to secure our nation, but it will waste billions upon billions of dollars. Members of Congress need to restrain spending and find a fiscal backbone. Some members of Congress, such as Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), even want to repeal portions of the tax cuts that President Bush signed into law last June. We cannot let this tax increase happen. Members of Congress need to know that they cannot get away with spending billions of dollars on pork barrel projects and raising taxes on Americans during a recession.
