In news writing, the adage goes "If you write it hasn't happened, it will." So it went, as last week's column rolled offthe press, winter came with freezing drizzle, snow and low-dipping temperatures. It wasn't a snow to write home about, but it was flaky falling white stuff that caused some white-outs and icy driv- ing conditions. Cold whizzed in with the tail of the storm, dropping temperatures into the teens in the daytime and single digits at night. Cold lapped your face like an old friendly dog and inched itself in- side any loose spots of clothing. It is still January!

Lee Jan. 13 at inaugural ceremonies held on the south steps of the Capitol Kathleen Sebelius became the 44th Governor of Kansas. Jan. 13 was also the first day of the 2003 Legislature. There are many important issues facing Gov. Sebelius and the new Leg- islature including how to deal with the largest shortfall in the budget in the state's history Since the end of the 2002 session, revenues for the state of Kansas have continued to deteriorate at an alarming rate, so many have faced this new year with great trepidation. As the new session began, Kansas faced a shortfall of nearly $750 million in the fiscal year 2004 budget. (Fiscal year 2004 actu- ally begins on July I, 2003, and is the budget that will take most of the time during the 2003 session). Jan. 15 Gov. Sebelius presented her budget proposals for the remainder of FY 2003 and for the full 2004 fiscal year. To the surprise of most, the Gov. did not recommend a tax increase in either fiscal year. The budget proposal for FY 2004 includes leaving the base state aid per pupil at the 2003 level of $3,863, for public schools and provides the same funding amount for special education service as the schools received this year. Additional dollars have been added to adequately cover the state's share of the local opt-'i-on budgets. Higher education funding for uni- versity operating grants, community Jewell By Roberta Holdren Jewell Chamberof Commerce meet Monday evening at the Community Center. Dena and Lauren Stephens entertained the with music. Randall Progressive Study Club prepared the meal. Shirley Varney conducted the business meeting. The next meeting is Feb. 10 with Methodist Church members serving the meal. Roberta Holdren was hostess to the Ladies Card Party. Gene and June Butts were honored guest at a party in Mankato Saturday honoring their 55th wedding anniver- sary. Jewell received their first measur- able snow of the year, approximately 2 to 3 inches. No school was held Thursday. Diane Simmelink, Salina. visited Pauline Simmelink. Opal and Richard Brandon visited Irene GolT and Ronnic Russell at Hilltop Lodge, Beloit, and Bertha Greenberg and Thelma Elniff, Chey- enne Lodge, Jamestown. Several from this area attended the play "Over the River and Through the Woods" at the Salina community Theater. Lawrence Divel fell Tuesday and was taken to Salina where he had surgery. Joann Pollard was a visitor at the Richard Brandon home recently. Several from this area were in Mexico this week on a mission trip. Charles and Roberta Holdren vis- ited several days with their granddaugh- ter, Quanita Williams, who had sur- gery Monday. Jewell Senior Citizens and guests had a potluck dinner at the Jewell apartments. Marie McAtee and Betty Wilson were hostesses. Inez Clark won the door prize. Ice cream was served honoring those with January birthdays and anniversaries. The next college aid and technical college sul port remains constant. Late this past fall Gov. Graves ma substantial funding cuts to social s vices, including home and commu~ based services to the disabled and ing populations. Gov. Sebelius' bt~ get proposal adds supplemental fun, ing to the current fiscal year. M~ importantly, FY 2004 case loads both SRS and Aging are fully fund Enough funding is included in It budget for the Department of Corre tions to avoid closure of any state pris~ facilities, including the Stockton U~ The budget restores sufficient fu~ ing to the Highway Patrol to hire! troopers in positions that are now t~ ing held vacant--primarily in the rt~ areas of Kansas. These positions wo~ be funded from transportation t sources as was done several years because Gov. Sebehus beheves, does little good to build new highw~ if citizens are not safe driving on the highways." The budget recommendati0~ would be funded in part from f~ which may occur in the Departmen! Revenue, State Treasurer, Secreta~ State, Health and Environment, ! Board of Tax Appeals and the Judi Council. The two most controversial posals made in the Governor's bud~ package were the elimination of state general fund revenue transfer the transportation program and theI mand transfers to the local units:, government through the local ad v~ rein tax reduction fund and the county revenue sharing fund. Her! ommendation for the transport~ program was not to downsize the~ gram but rather stretch it out over r~ years Because of favorable inte~ rates, the transportation program! received more revenues than was o~ nally anticipated. The elimination of the dem! transfers to the local units of gov{ ment is the more troubling aspec! the budget proposal However, it be noted that in FY 2002, while state experienced an actual declir~ our revenues of $184 million, the It" units of government experienced increase of $276 million. The den~ transfers from the state to the I! units provide only about 2 percer~ the overall resources for the city l county budgets. By comparison the exception of educational ins[ tions, almost all state agencies I~ reduced their budgets by 5 pe since last May. This budget p.roposal provide sound starting point for deliberat~ in the Legislature. As the Gov~ said in her state of the state add~ "We have hard work to do. do it. We have the ability, the and the expertise...to overcome problems....And we will only come these problems if we face I together."
