Schools Face Off
BY EMC CARLSON
Setting the stage for what could
be a long fight over school funding,
BnlmwiHr Ownhr sdssis
istratora, school bond members and
parents urged the board of commis
sioners to reconsider a draft budget
that allocates $400,000 less for edu
cation than last year's spending
About 150 people attended a pub
lic bearing on the county's proposed
budget Monday night.
Some requested increased funding
for county libraries, volunteer fire
departments, literacy programs, nu
trition sites and domntic violence
services. But *"?** of the 20

"The purpose of government is to
provide certain services to the pub
lic, without which the fabric of soci
ety begins to unravel," Fairley's
statement said. "It appears that the
process used in this budget has not
addressed needs first and then at
tempted to meet those needs with
taxing revenues. Instead, it has re
versed the process by arbitrarily
rapping revenues and horseshoeing
county needs within those limits.
