Textbook lawsuit 'silly,' board member says

BY Alicia Gooden

Attorneys from Trial Lawyers for Public Justice said Friday the state’s board of education is forcing publishers to edit textbooks to fit their own religious and political beliefs. The network filed a class-action lawsuit against the State Board of Education Thursday, claiming its November 2001 decision to reject an environmental science textbook for use in public high schools constitutes censorship. The board voted 10 to 5 to reject the book.

Taxes will dominate the political scene this year

BY Richard R. Aguirre

Sex, religion and politics always have ignited fierce debates. But taxes are a far more explosive subject in Oregon nowadays. That is sure to continue for at least another year. Politicians and political activists are ramping up their rhetoric about tax increases, tax cuts, tax reform and the proper level of state government programs and services. An income-tax increase plan approved by the 2003 Oregon Legislature is the subject of intense debate.

Activist group brings money, draws concern

BY STEVE LAW

Citizens for a Sound Economy, a little-known national group, emerged in Oregon during the 1999 legislative session, when it lobbied for a telephone deregulation bill sought by phone monopoly US West. Months later, leaked internal documents revealed the self-described “grass roots” group received $1.25 million from US West in 1998. Investigative reports also showed Citizens for a Sound Economy: •Got $1 million from Philip Morris while opposing cigarette tax hikes. •Took money from Microsoft and lobbied Congress to curtail federal antitrust enforcement.

Russ Walker winces at criticism that his group, Citizens for a Sound Economy, is made up of carpetbaggers sent to Oregon to overturn the 2003 Legislature's $1.2 billion tax increase. After all, the Keizer resident graduated from high school in Central Point, a small community near Medford. He has lived here the past nine years and can point to ancestors who settled in Southern Oregon in 1860.

Not-so-simple solution

BY Rich, Jennifer L

To help bridge the digital divide, a group of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have designed a simple Internet search engine specifically for developing countries with poor infrastructure. Unlike current applications, which are built for speed, the TEK, or "Time Equals Knowledge," (tek.sourceforge.net) search engine capitalizes on the developing world's most reliable resource: time. To conduct a search on TEK, a user in Mombassa or Tirana inputs search terms that are sent via e-mail to a server in Boston. The server conducts the search, pares down duplicate content and strips out bulky images, and e-mails the Web pages back to the user in a compressed file. Total turnaround time? Twenty-four hours or longer.

State won't change tax plan's ballot title

BY BRAD CAIN

SALEM, Ore. (AP) - State officials are refusing to remove references to budget cuts from the ballot title of a measure to overturn the Legislature's tax hike package. Anti-tax activists who are collecting signatures to put the issue to a Feb. 3 statewide vote asked Secretary of State Bill Bradbury this week to reconsider the ballot summary for the proposed measure. They said the wording, drafted by Attorney General Hardy Myers, should not refer to budget cuts because the tax increase bill itself doesn't make any cuts.
