If the announcement was originally posted by someone (perhaps a GTF who assisted you in the course in years past) who has left the UO, the original poster's account may be disabled, which prevents anyone else from deleting the announcement.  Send email to blackboard@ithelp.uoregon.edu giving the name of the course and the announcement you need deleted, and we can help you fix this.
