click Modify settings and columns.

2. On the Customize List_name page, in the General
Settings section, click Change permissions for this

3. On the list toolbar, click Add Users.

4. In the Step 1: Choose Users section, in the Users
area, in the text box, type the e-mail address or domain name
and account name for the user or group you want to assign permissions.

5. In the Step 2: Choose Permissions section, in the
Permissions section, select the level of permissions for the user or
group, and then click Next.

6. In the Step 3: Confirm Users section, verify that the
e-mail address, user name, and display name for the user or group are

7. To notify the user or group of the permissions with an
e-mail message, in the Step 4: Send E-Mail section, select the Send the
following e-mail to let these users know they've been added check box,
and fill in the text you want to send.

Are you doing this for an SPS or WSS list? List-level permissions  are only in
WSS sites and sub-sites, this option is not available in SPS.

I was trying this in SPS area lists.

Do you recommend a work around to be able to do this type  of thing in an
SPS area? Possibly I could use a WSS list  in a web content view webpart?
Or how about a data view web part?

We need the ability for a small group  of users  to be able to post a
message everyday but we do not want to give them access to other rights
other then just posting this message  on the main Portal page.
