House passes short-sighted budget

Last week, the House of Representatives approved a proposed state government budget for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 by adopting and sending to the Senate H.3700, this year's general appropriations bill, and H.3701, the joint resolution making appropriations from the capital reserve fund. The proposed $5.4 billion budget includes widespread cuts for state government agencies made necessary by the declines in state revenue in recent years and by the absence of federal stimulus funds that have been used to help offset shortfalls.

• We were very glad to see Kershaw County Council recognize ALPHA Center Executive Director Paul Napper recently. Napper has served as The ALPHA Center's director for three decades.

As always, Napper was humble in receiving council's resolution honoring him, saying it really ...
