STATE'S BUDGET FIASCO SMELLS LIKE A TAX INCREASE

Talk about a stupid decision -- to cut state school and hospital appropriations in the middle of the stream is beyond my comprehension. Last weekwe voted for a new school building; this week we lay off part of our teaching staff.

Does this make any sense at all? Will our children suffer? I can only say that I am glad I did not vote for this governor. Maybe we should hire competent, experienced financial experts.

I ask you -- does this sound familiar? Hold a state lottery and education will never suffer again. Where are all those lottery dollars? I think I smell a tax increase around the corner no matter how appropriations are cut this year.
