BISHOP'S STORTFORD: Anger over latest bid for phone mast

By Isabel Jensen

FRUSTRATED residents of Oriole Way, in Bishop's Stortford, are furious that mobile phone giant O2 has been allowed to apply for a fourth time in its bid to install a mast.

As reported by the Citizen last September, O2 had tried to get a 13m highmast with two equipment cabinets at the corner of Oriole Way and Great Hadham Way, but the application was rejected after angry residents opposed the move.

The company has since applied again, once last December and again in January, and the company recently applied for planning permission again, much to the dismay of residents who sent in 106 letters of objection to the last planning application.


The $2 Trillion Nightmare

Bob Herbert, writing for The New York Times, says: "We've been hearing a lot about 'Saturday Night Live' and the fun it has been having with the presidential race. But hardly a whisper has been heard about a Congressional hearing in Washington last week on a topic that could have been drawn, in all its tragic monstrosity, from the theater of the absurd."



Lobbyist to Run McCain's Hill Effort

Martin Kady II and Patrick O'Connor, reporting for The Politico, write, "Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain has engaged a leading GOP lobbyist to coordinate his message and travel schedule with congressional Republicans - the most concrete sign yet that the biggest battleground in the 2008 presidential race may not be Pennsylvania or Ohio or Florida's I-4 corridor but rather the floor of the United States Senate."

Republican Ideology Has Broken the Economy


The Huffington Post — As the financial system continues to experience a high amount of turmoil, it is clear that deregulation has exceeded the "too much of a burden on business" argument. Instead, too little regulation has broken the economy.

Woman jailed for overdue library books



In Beloit, failing to return overdue library books is apparently a serious offense. It landed Keely Givhan behind bars for six days. Beloit Public Library director Dan Zack said when books aren’t returned, the library sends three overdue notices. After the third notice, a citation is sent that could include court date. Givhan said she was in the process of moving so she never got the notices. When a police officer pulled her over for a traffic violation in November, the officer found out about her outstanding warrant and took her to jail. She and her family couldn’t afford to pay her fine so she remained in jail for six days...

Linking NAFTA and Immigration

According to Ted Lewis on CommonDreams.org, "As Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama slug out the Ohio round of their Democratic primary fight, the issue of NAFTA has returned to the center of debate, revealing deep, unresolved tension in the Democratic Party 15 years after the passage of the landmark trade agreement. It's not hard to see why knocking NAFTA makes for good politics in Ohio. The state has lost more than 200,000 manufacturing jobs since 2000."

Writing for Movement Vision Lab, Maude Barlow says, "All over the world, groups who are fighting for local water rights are championing an international instrument on the right to water. Due to over-development and climate change, fresh water is becoming increasingly scarce. In addition, in many communities across the globe, people cannot get access to whatever clean water does exist without paying private corporations. The global water crisis is evident. We need a global solution."



Corn Is King and Therefore a Growing Problem

Jerry Hirsch of The Los Angeles Times reports, "Corn is a key element of the US food supply. It is what dairy cows eat to make milk and hens consume to lay eggs.

The Senate Shills for Big Oil

According to an editorial in The New York Times, "One of the major shortcomings in last year's admirable energy bill was its failure to extend vital tax credits to producers of wind, solar and other renewable fuels.

Who Looks Foolish, Alamo Heroes or Us?

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

During this week back in 1836, the Alamo fell. For more than 13 days, 186 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna's seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet, they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans........

MP for Hire?

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Joseph Joubert said: "Imagination is the eye of the soul". It therefore comes as no surprise that with terrorists lending their imagination to Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, a member of the House of Lords from Gordon Brown's ruling Labor Party, his soul is blinded. Lord Corbett would have us believe that millions of Iranians are eagerly waiting for the "freedoms offered by Iran's parliament-in-exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran."[i] Perhaps it is the inaccuracy of the number that troubles this writer.

Why Isn't Iraq in the 2008 Election?

By Noam Chomsky

The highly regarded British polling agency, Oxford Research Bureau, has just updated its estimate of deaths. Their new estimate a couple of days ago is 1.3 million. That's excluding two of the most violent provinces, Karbala and Anbar. On the side, it's kind of intriguing to observe the ferocity of the debate over the actual number of deaths. There's an assumption on the part of the hawks that if we only killed a couple hundred thousand people, it would be OK, so we shouldn't accept the higher estimates. You can go along with that if you like.
