Action Alert: Help Stop the Brevard Tax Hike!

Florida needs your help. On November 4th, the voters in Brevard County will go to the polls and vote a twenty-year sales tax up or down. On that day, you will help to decide the fate of a $1.3 billion proposed tax increase. This tax hike is combined with a huge spending increase that makes this proposal just one big liberal tax-and-spend scheme. And if approved, the liberals and special interests will have achieved their main goal: to grow the size and scope of government. Plus, there is no guarantee that any of the proposed projects will actually be built!

Fort Worth, Texas, Plan Would Award Contracts to Firms That Cut Emissions

BY Scott Streater

Oct. 6--An explosion of construction, including work at North Beach Street and North Tarrant Parkway, has led to increased air pollution, some say. At a construction site in north Fort Worth, where they're building an Eckerd Drug, black smoke billows from a huge excavator as it strains to lift a concrete block. Across the street, where construction crews are preparing to build a Walgreen drugstore, road graders noisily plow the dirt as plumes of exhaust trail them like shadows.

Officials seek to regulate construction emmissions

Posted on Sun, Oct. 05, 2003 At a construction site in north Fort Worth, where they're building an Eckerd Drugs, black smoke bellows from a huge excavator as it strains to lift a concrete block. Across the street, where construction crews are preparing to build a Walgreens drugstore, road graders noisily plow the dirt as plumes of exhaust trail them like shadows. It's a scene played out daily across the Metroplex, where unbridled growth has unleashed one of the largest sources of air pollution in the region: diesel-powered construction equipment.

300 gather to hear schools merger info

BY CAROLYN NORTON

HILLSBOROUGH -- Some 300 people crowded a forum Thursday night to hear information about a possible merger of the Orange County and Chapel Hill-Carrboro schools. The event, sponsored by a local parents' group and held at Cedar Ridge High School, featured a UNC professor, a member of a 1985 committee that studied the topic, and Orange County Commissioner Moses Carey, who initiated local merger discussion this January. Merger is the only way to ensure equal opportunities for all students in the county, Carey told the crowd.

Who is General Wesley Clark?

General Wesley Clark, Democratic candidate for president who is not a registered Democrat, has been criticized for being a keynote speaker at a Republican fundraiser in 2001. There, he said President Ronald Reagan “was truly a great American leader” and praised President George H.W. Bush for his “tremendous leadership and statesmanship” and said he was “very glad we’ve got the great team in office: men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Paul O’Neill— people I know well— our president, George W. Bush.”

No Backroom Deals on CO2

One of the larger tasks currently facing Congress is guiding an energy bill through conference. Both the House and Senate have passed versions that are now being reconciled. In some areas the differences are wide, which means there will be a certain amount of arm-twisting and cajoling to get the bill through conference. The Washington Post reports, for instance, that a loan guarantee for a power plant in Minnesota was included to sweeten the pot for Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and that energy committee chair Sen. Domenici’s (R-N.M.) office has compiled a list of similar projects to woo additional support. Conference negotiations take place behind closed doors and far from the public, opening the potential to deals of all sorts.

The Tax-and-Spend 10

©2003 Copley News Service, 9/30/2003 The Democratic Party has a newcomer in the race for the presidency, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, who brings the field of candidates to 10. For such a large field, diversity of thought is remarkably absent, and one searches in vain for a new idea other than raising taxes and tariff barriers.
