SharePoint Events not Firing

I am trying to get Event Handlers to run on a WSS 3.0 server I have for testing. For any event handler I write, it does not seem that the event is "firing".  Greatly simplified the effort and went back to the tutorials that start with writting a receiver for the ItemDeleting Action on an Annoucement list.
Here is what I know:
-  The code compiles without error, and is registered successfully in the GAC.
-  Feature.xml and Elements.xml are correct, and contain a GUID and the Public key back to the .dll.  
- Feature installs and activates without problem with stsadm.exe.
- The Feature Admin Tool (codeplex) correctly shows the Feature is on the farm
- Event Handler Explorer (codeplex) correct shows the handler as being attached to my annoucement list.
- no errors in the event log

Found some references to events having to be turned on in Central Admin; however none of the "step-by-step" procedures got me to a setting.  Best I could find was the setting for backwards compatibilty with the 2.0 events...

It really appears that the event is just not firing.  Any thoughts/suggestions/clues?

Reading your analysis it appears you've highlighted all the obvious problems.

Have you tried implementing it in different templates?  I'd start with a collaboration portal that has all the features turned on.  Some 'Features' in Sharepoint only work on specific templates.

How are you deploying your customization?  Are you using a Sharepoint Deployment Solution?

Turned on the more detailed event logs within Central Admin. This revealed I had a typo in Elements.xml that was the route of my problem.
