Annex plan lawsuit sought

BY Don Worthington

A group of Cumberland County residents who live in an area included in Fayetteville's annexation plan is considering suing the city. The Gates Four homeowners' association has retained a lawyer, but the residents of the gated-community near Hope Mills are waiting until after the Fayetteville City Council's Nov. 24 vote on annexation to decide what action to take, said association president Bobby Gleaton.

Signature-gatherers' pay being investigated

BY Charles E. Beggs

SALEM, Ore. State election officials are investigating a complaint that petitioners for an anti-tax campaign may be breaking a law against paying workers for each signature they gather. Anne Martens, spokeswoman for Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, also said yesterday that the office is looking into an allegation that a petition circulator gave false information about the tax measure to prospective signers. Both complaints were brought by the Voter Education Project, a watchdog group that monitors those who collect signatures for ballot measures.

INITIATIVE SPONSORS TRY NEW STRATEGIES

BY Harry Esteve

Summary: A law limiting signature-gatherers to hourly pay and a ruling restricting where they can work complicates the process As a spate of citizen initiatives hit the streets, backers say they have changed tactics to overcome new restrictions on where petitioners can solicit signatures and how they can be paid. Instead of relying strictly on paid signature gatherers, they're putting more emphasis on volunteers, direct mail and door-to-door canvassing.

Petition race heats up

BY Ron Cowan

Carol Gaddis of Salem was more than happy to put her name on the dotted line during Saturday's Recall the Tax drive. "I'm taxed to death as it is," she said, signing a petition held by Wayne Brady at the Vista Station branch of the U.S. Post Office. "I think it's always a good idea if the people have a choice."

Republicans test airwaves to break judicial impasse

BY Charles Hurt

Republicans and their supporters are taking the debate over President Bush's stalled judicial nominations directly to voters in an untested effort to find out whether people actually care about the increasingly politicized issue. Television advertisements have gone up in South Carolina; radio ads are running in Michigan and Republicans scheduled 30 straight hours of debate next week on judicial nominations that will be broadcast live on C-SPAN 2.

ON SCHOOL ISSUE, TOWN'S VOTE WAS TOO FEW TO COUNT

BY Meg Villeneuve

They came and they voted, but not enough of them. Of Bedford's 12,839 registered voters, 5,511 showed up for Tuesday's special election. Three- quarters of those voters favored a proposal to build a high school and continue sending students to Manchester while the school is being built. But according to state law, in a special election convened by a school district, at least half of registered voters must vote in order for the results to be valid. Tuesday's turnout fell 909 shy of the 6,420 needed.

Anti-tax group is relentless

BY DANA BARRICKLOW

We should be very worried about the attempt by Citizens for a Sound Economy to defeat a small tax increase proposed by the state Legislature to pay for essential state services. This group is trying to control our state; they are financed by large corporate interests, headquartered in Washington, D.C.

Just say no to signing anti-tax-hike petition

BY Editorial

The increase is not as large as opponents would have you think. If you're out and about this weekend, chances are you will be asked to sign a petition to overturn the Legislature's tax-and-budget plan. For the sake of your fellow Oregonians, say, "Thanks, no," and move on.
