Pape 4 Cloverdale Reveille May 29. 1991 > Guest 00ditori00l No Fault is No Good By Howard Owens, President, Congress of Seniors I was born and raised in California and I have lived here for most of my 61 years. I love California be- cause of what it has always stood for: fairness, equity and opportunity. I am dismayed now by a move by the insurance industry to change all of this for everyone. The indus- try is once again sponsoring no-fault legislation which goes too far in requiring that we give up our basic rights as citizens so people on fixed incomes, and others not able to afford the high price of auto insur- mace, can have access to low:cost insurance policies. While obviously a good idea in concept, I wonder why we can't have low-cost policies without hav- ing to give up our rights to full com- . pensation in case of a car accident. C It seems out of step with the Ameri- ." can philosophy to say that in order to retain one right, you have to give up others. That is neither fair nor equitable. -. The Congress of California Sen-  iors is not alone in this skepticism.  Many large and respected groups and organizations throughout the i:. state have expressed their opposi- *i tion to No-Fault automobile insur-  ance. By so doing, they have joined : with more than 75% of the California .:electorate which voted against no- fault just three years ago in the :': form of Proposition 104. In fact, in :tbe Cloverdale area, about 70% of Z voters said, "No!" .,:: "  voters saw through this simi- ....... lar seam in 1988. The voters ques- tioned why the insurance industry would spend more than $80 million to see No Fault auto insurance, - Proposition 104, adopted, if it were -" not in their best interest. We hope legislators ask that very same ques- -tiOn before it's too late and we've bartered rights for insurance. Other ., states have been forced to learn the failure of No-Fault first hand. In fact, four states have recently repealed no-fault auto insurance. In California, we have the opportu- nity to learn from their mistakes. Now the insurance industry is at it again. This time, they are trying to move legislation, SB 941, through the Legislature since they failed at the polls. While I commend the well-intentioned efforts of the bill's authors, I think it is a bad precedent to require an exchange of rights. what rights will we be asked to sur- render to obtain health insurance, medical insurance, or other necessi- ties of life? The Congress of California Sen- iors is concerned that in their efforts to adopt insurance reform and make low-cost auto insurance available to those who need it, some legislators are not seeing through the insur- ance ind ustry's ultimate goal - higher profits at the expense of consumers. The Congress of California Sen- iors is in good company in its oppo- sition to no-fault in general, and SB 941 in particular. The greatest consumer advocate of all, Ralph Nader, has consistently opposed no-fault throughout the country. Now, Public Citizen, a Nader-affili- ated group, is leading the charge against both. We believe low-cost polices can and should be made available through means other than no-fault. In fact, if we cut down on insurance fraud, improve the safety of Califor- nia's cars and trucks and simplify the court system, enough money would be saved and lives spared to more than provide insurance com- panies the financial incentive they need to provide low-cost policies. We hope the legislature acts re- sponsibly to achieve both its goals; low-cost auto insurance and protec- tion of basic consumer fights. CUSD approves new Social .,-Studies textbooks for grades K-8 "' The School Board has approved adoption of the Houghtin-Miffiin Social Studies Series for grades K-8.

No honor in Genocide Editor: I salute the Healdsburg man who carried a sign at that town's Gulf War parade reading: No Honor in Genocide. There's no triumph in tragedy and suffering. It ain't fitting to cele- brate slaughter. I don't blame the troops for this; they know death shouldn't be cheered. Those who fight pray most fervently for peace. I blame the American public, who viewed this seemingly bloodless war as if it were the latest tv mini-series. Hundreds of Americans died. The lives of their families and friends are shattered. Hundreds of thou- sands of Iraqis were killed; thou- sands of innocents whose only crime was being in the path of bullets and bombs. Thousands more will die from wounds, disease, starvation, or be killed by the madman we were told we had to stop, and didn't. This war was repeatedly referred to as the Superbowl. Checking my scorecards, I question what was won. Our economy and the world's has been weakened. The environ- ment is unalterably damaged. The Middle East is even more unstable. What was gained? We spent billions of dollars and thousands of lives -- and bought a parade. If we don't begin solving our problems, the flags flapping over coming celebrations will belong to the countries that bought America - cheap - while we sold our souls and future down the river. General Schwarzkopf said that we'd "kicked ass in 100 hours", a gross exaggeration and statemenL I'd like to pull the yellow ribbons off the General's eyes so he could see that tens of thousands of those butts we just kicked to death be- longed to little children.
