Letters to the Editor

Support our troops; they fight for you As our nation seemingly draws closer to a military action with Iraq, we're reminded that "united we stand" should remain more than a mere motto. As a mother of six incredible children, I'm terrified for their future. I'm willing to bet the same sentiment prevailed before our active involvement in World War II as well. Pearl Harbor ended that fence-riding and Sept. 11, 2001, ended it in my mind this time. I'm not a pro-war fanatic. I favor bringing the evil forces behind Sept. 11 to justice and eliminating those who would like to continue to allow their terror to rein. I'm not a "kill 'em all. Let God sort them out" fanatic. I'm a veteran. I served my country in uniform and stood beside other men and women who willingly sacrifice their lives for me and you. Take a moment away from blasting our president, insulting our foreign policy and pretending terrorism will disappear if we mind our own business, and remember there are men and women fighting for you and your right to voice your opinion. Not to mention your right to live in a land free of buildings with airplanes blazing inside of them, fields with gigantic holes and a Pentagon with gaping holes in its side. I haven't forgotten. Why have so many of you? I'll continue to pray for a peaceful resolution to this crisis; however, I will also pray for the swift resolution militarily if that is what it takes to end the rein of terrorism. God bless America, its men and women who fight your battle daily and my president.

Beach access on the meter EDITOR: On my first visit to the North Carolina coast about a dozen years ago, I was very pleased to learn that, wherever a street or a road had to stop for the ocean, a nice agency called CAMA had placed a sign indicating that the general public could gain access to the beach at that point.

Governor uncertain if he will sign retirement savings bill

BY BOB JOHNSON

The head of Alabama's retirement system says state employees and teachers already have one of the best pensions in the country and he's not sure why a new saving plan is needed, given the state's other pressing demands. "It's a question of how much of this sort of thing do you do for employees and not focus on other needs of the state," said David Bronner, chief executive officer of the Retirement Systems of Alabama.

Reliable Energy Now, and for the Future Talking Points and Sample Questions

The Unites States is in the midst of an energy crisis. New exploration and the production of energy resources has almost completely stopped, our refining capacity is stretched to the limit, and our dependence of foreign energy sources is at a historical high. Any effort to make electricity and fuel more expensive, or to cap or regulate CO2 will only exacerbate an already critical situation and cause tremendous economic damage. RELIABLE ENERGY NOW, AND FOR THE FUTURE

Issue Number 8- No Guarantee All Lottery Revenue will “Come Home” to North Carolina

North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy today released Issue Number 8 of its ongoing effort to educate elected officials and citizens on why a government-run lottery is bad business and public policy. When the lottery fails to meet revenue goals, it will create a deficit spending situation in our budget that ultimately destabilizes our economy.

Social security EDITOR: I visited the White House for the unveiling of President Bush's newly appointed commission to study Social Security. It is well documented that Social Security as we know it will soon collapse without significant reform. As he promised in his campaign, President Bush has taken the initiative and appointed a 16-member bipartisan commission to examine the ailing Social Security system and develop recommendations for preserving it. ...

Grassley Facing Big Test

BY Paul Kane

Facing his biggest test yet as the new Finance chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is already taking advance fire from conservative activists who fear that he has been far too compromising in negotiating the tax-cut package. Led by the Club for Growth and the Heritage Foundation, a loose coalition of conservative think tanks and anti-tax groups have lashed out at Grassley for considering deals with Democrats even before this week's committee markup or a floor fight.

Medicaid director is retiring

BY Rob Christensen

Dick Perruzzi, director of the state's Medicaid program for 23 years, will retire at the end of July, according to an internal memo sent out Wednesday by Health and Human Services Secretary Carmen Hooker Buell. Perruzzi had planned to retire last fall, but was asked to stay on through the end of former Gov. Jim Hunt's term. When Gov. Mike Easley took over in January, Perruzzi again was asked to stay aboard - this time, through the spring and the passage of a new budget, he said.
