Cuts by Gov. Palin
By Frances Natkong

I live in Hydaburg, Alaska one of the places Governor Palin chose
to cut out of the budget. Our school is in dire need of new housing
for our teachers. The housing we have now is so old, the trailers
are falling down around our teachers. How can our children get
a good education without teachers? If the Governor knows anything
about Hydaburg she would know there is no housing available for
rent, there are families living with families here and the economy
is so bad. Our city is in dire straits as well.
We (the school board) fought
tooth-and-nail with the city council for the forest receipts
and didn't get the entire amount that was slated for the school,
so we need dollars to help with the upkeep of our school and
teacher housing such as it is.
Governor Palin, please, please
reconsider your decision to cut Hydaburg School out of the budget
(SB 53 vetoes). Haw'aa.
