Benicia Finance Committee chose its new officers Friday, then resumed an ongoing dialogue with staff about the city’s fiscal shortfalls and upcoming budget sessions.

Larry Grossman is the panel’s new chairman, succeeding Dennis Lowry, who was not reappointed after his term ended.

Vice Chairman Lee Wines submitted his resignation before Friday’s meeting, prompted in part because “he is disappointed with the non-reappointment of our former chair, ” Grossman said. “We will miss him and his sage counsel.”

But late Friday, Wines sent an email to city Finance Director Karan Reid retracting his resignation, and saying he will attend the committee’s next meeting in March.

In Wines’s absence, Michael Clarke, who was reappointed by Mayor Elizabeth Patterson to the Finance Committee, was elected vice chairperson.

Grossman said the committee under Lowry’s leadership “accomplished significant things, ” among them expanding the panel’s scope far beyond simply examining monthly warrants reports.

Crisis in the Balkans

Kosovo is another illustration of U.S. policy

On March 24, U.S.-led NATO forces launched cruise missiles and bombs at targets in Yugoslavia, “plunging America into a military conflict that President Clinton said was necessary to stop ethnic cleansing and bring stability to Eastern Europe...erely proclaimed with passionate rhetoric. The consequences of such violations have to be assessed carefully—in particular, what we take to be “predictable.” For those who are minimally serious, the reasons for the actions also have to be assessed on rational grounds, with attention to historical fact and the documentary record, not simply by adulation of our leaders and their “moral compass.” Z

Suppression of Indigenous Sovereignty
in 20th Century United States
By Ward Churchill
As the 20th century prepares to take its rightful place in the dustbin of history, the last vestiges of sovereignty among the more than 300 indigenous nations trapped inside the claimed boundaries of the United States are rapidly sliding into a kind of final oblivion. In one of official Ameri...r to recoup what has been lost. We are nonetheless obliged to regain our stride, however painfully and belatedly. We are obliged because if our histories have taught us anything at all it is that, whatever the future may hold for our peoples, it must be something we collectively forge for ourselves or it will be truly too dreadful to contemplate. Our coming generations surely deserve far better.
