Senate Fails to Stop Shark Attacks

In all four of the movies of the Jaws series, members of the Brody family are attacked by giant man-eating sharks. It’s probably impossible to stop filmmakers from rehashing the overused Jaws plot into another sequel, but it is possible to stop man-eating medical malpractice lawyers from causing health care costs to spiral upwards.

Tax Foes Criticize College Support

BY Taylor Bright

Higher education in Alabama is stumping for higher taxes. But opponents of the tax say the public institutions should stay neutral. The University of Alabama, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of South Alabama all have links to pro-tax material on their Web sites. UAB's Web site prominently displays a "Vote Yes Sept. 9" sign on its home page. The University of Alabama has a link on its home page that says the same thing. All the universities are part of the UA system except South Alabama. Alabamians will vote Sept. 9 on whether to adopt Gov. Bob Riley's $1.2 billion tax initiative. "A public institution should not be used as a way to further their political views," said Brenna Hapes, spokeswoman for the Washington-based Citizens for a Sound Economy, which opposes the tax increase. Kellee Reinhart, spokeswoman for the UA system, said the practice is legal. "We are very comfortable using our Web sites," Reinhart said. "The way we see it is this is not an election campaign with political candidates or any issue that would provide our employees with actual personal gain." Bob Gambacurta, spokesman for the Tax Accountability Coalition, an anti-tax group, said this was just a step towards the schools being used as a way to push Riley's plan. "Whether it's against the law or not, it's not right," Gambacurta said. "They're trying to use everybody in education they can reach out and touch." By posting the material, the schools must have used some public funds, opponents noted. "It's an inappropriate use of public funds," Hapes said. "They're spending taxpayers money to ask the taxpayers for money." Reinhart said Malcolm Portera, chancellor for the UA system, announced the system would not use funds to buy "tangible" materials — such as signs or bumper stickers — to support the "yes" vote. She said the plan is something the schools support. "There was just a strong consensus among the leadership team in the University of Alabama system that Gov. Riley's package is fair, it is equitable and it is extremely important to the future of the state," Reinhart said.

Will Students Get it “Wright” If Asked Who Invented Flight?

An Anniversary That Could Have Be Forgotten… 100 years ago two brothers from Dayton, Ohio, challenged conventional wisdom and reached for the sky. They put their skills as bicycle mechanics to use attempting to fly. They changed the way we look at our world and remind us that acting on a dream can open a galaxy of opportunity. Thanks to them, what was 100 years ago an incredulous thought -- man flying -- is now commonplace and almost taken so for granted.

FREE-MARKET CONSERVATIVES AIM TO BE HEARD

BY ANTHONY MAN

Saturday, July 26, 2003 LOCAL John Hallman envisions a force of free-market, small-government conservatives rising from the generally liberal fields of Palm Beach County. "We want to become a voice as big as some of the groups on the left are, [such as] environmental groups that drive public policy through a large membership and making their voices heard," he said. Hallman's a long way from that goal, but months of organizing on behalf of Citizens for a Sound Economy have brought some success. The last local meeting attracted 40 people.

Oregon: Battle Against "Borrow and Spend"

When they’re not raising taxes, too often big-spending politicians are trying to sock future taxpayers with the tab for big increases in government borrowing. Last week, quick work by Oregon CSE helped derail a new borrowing plan that would have destabilized state finances.

A New Charge Against Fraud and Waste

With government spending up to $2.2 trillion a year, there’s more room than ever for waste, fraud, and abuse. Three cheers, then, for Representative Jim Nussle, who as Chairman of the House Budget Committee has launched a war to expose the rotten or unnecessary parts of the federal government.
