Koch Problems Could Be Ammo for Gore Camp

BY R. G. Ratcliffe

AUSTIN - Texas politicians, mostly Republican, received more than $ 144,000 in campaign contributions for the 1998 elections from Koch Industries - a Kansas-based company indicted by a federal grand jury this week on allegations the company illegally released cancer-causing pollutants into the air around Corpus Christi. Environmentalists and Democrats have complained that the situation with Koch is symptomatic of a broader problem in Texas - campaign contributions from the petrochemical industry have resulted in slack environmental enforcement by the state.

State House Candidates Try to Lure Voters to Run Offs

BY George Bennett

It will come down to a few die-hard voters. In three closely fought state House races in Palm Beach and Martin counties, the candidates who do the best job of fishing votes from a sea of indifference Tuesday will win all-but-guaranteed tickets to Tallahassee. Democrats in state House districts 88 and 89 in southern Palm Beach County and Republicans in House District 82 in Martin and northern Palm Beach counties will go to the polls for runoff elections, which are held when no candidate wins a majority in a primary.

BY George Bennett and Matthew Doig

It will come down to a few diehard voters. In three closely fought state House races in Martin and Palm Beach counties, the candidates who do the best job of fishing votes from a sea of indifference Tuesday will win all-but-guaranteed tickets to Tallahassee. Republicans in state House District 82, which includes parts of Martin and northern Palm Beach counties, and Democrats in two southern Palm Beach County House districts will go to the polls for runoff elections, which are held when no candidate wins a majority in a primary.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Whose CD is it Anyway?

On Monday, Representatives Richard Burr, (R-N.C.), Ray LaHood, (R-Ill), and Fred Upton, (R-Mich) joined Internet-caucus co-chairman Rick Boucher (D-Va) to introduce the “Music Owner’s Listening Rights Act of 2000.” With the 106th Congress nearly complete, the bill has little chance for passage. More important than its prospects for enactment, however, is the message it sends about the future of “intellectual property” law.

Crowded Ballot Worries Raleigh

BY Demorris Lee

RALEIGH -- City officials think North Raleigh residents will support $ 75 million in road, park and housing bonds - if only they can find them on the Nov. 7 ballot. With presidential, gubernatorial and other races before voters, along with $ 3.1 billion for state college facilities and $ 500 million for Wake County schools, Raleigh officials are concerned that their bond issues may get lost in the shuffle.

Microsoft Judge Says Ruling At Risk; Every Trial Decision Called 'Vulnerable'

BY James V. Grimaldi

The federal judge who ordered Microsoft Corp. split in two said yesterday that "virtually everything" he did in the antitrust case may be vulnerable on appeal, and he blamed the software giant's "intransigence" for his breakup decision. U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson, in a candid and self-effacing luncheon speech to an antitrust seminar, also said "public misperceptions" fueled by "public-relations campaigns" spurred him to speak out to the media and the public on the historic case and assure observers that he does not want to regulate the software industry.
