Ballengee Lisa Bowles Personnel of the Month Lisa Bowles, Head Cook, has been selected January "Personnel of the Month" by the Talcott School Improvement Council. The school family as we once knew it is going by the way of larger schools through consolidation and numerous other changes. We feel our school has remained one with a sense of family and we felt these folks needed to know they are appreciated. Every student and parent, who are part of this school, will be touched, in some way by a teacher or other staff member. The positive word, the needed push, or maybe just encouragement can be the catalyst for a successful future. Each month we send out forms with monthly announcements, asking students and/or parents to nominate a staff member they believe deserves this recognition, along with the reasons why. Notice COMMUNITY SUPPORT The Hinton Lions Club is asking for the Communities support in helping to provide those who need, eye examinations or eye glasses. The Hinton Lions have been providing assistance for over 18 years and are asking community State Police civilian employees and West Virginia's Racing Commission are among those who can expect less funding in the new state budget. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin applied his line-item veto power Wednesday to shave $13.5 million from the $11.6 billion spending plan before signing it. He also scaled back increases approved by lawmakers for rape crisis centers, health care clinics and substance abuse programs. The new budget year begins July 1. The bulk of the cuts, around $9.9 million, reflect a revised estimate of how much the state must put toward the main pension fund for teachers. Improved investment earnings means the Teachers Retirement System needs less from the new state budget as it gradually closes a multibillion-dollar funding liability. Tomblin reduced pay and benefit raises for State Police civilian employees by $1.05 million, to $250,000, citing concerns about pernmnently increasing spending on wages and salaries. The governor also cut funding for expenses at the Racing Commission nearly in half, by $696,800 to $557,364. Tomblin deleted all $510,000 budgeted for equipment at the state Contractor Licensing Board. The governor noted that the equipment is for a program not administered by the board. Tomblin cited projected decreases in lottery proceeds in reducing revenues Yrom that source for the Development Office by $410,000, to $4OO,OOO. Wednesday's veto message also applied cuts of $250,000 each to three different areas of the budget. The cuts reduced funding for Health Right clinics to $4.7 million, rape crisis programs to $250,000 and organizations and businesses as well Farm as citizens for monetary donations Notice to continue providing help to those in need in our community.
