(785) 825-9105 SALINA, KS the Salina Journal Tacha / Teachers inspired student FROM PAGE A2 Tacha remembers, in particular, one of her grade-school teachers who would stay with her an hour or two after school, helping her learn spelling words from the dictionary, because Tacha so enjoyed spelling bees. "I also had a teacher in high school, Grace Robinson, and she involved me in so many one-act plays, speech contests — the kind of thing that gives you confidence to work in groups," Tacha said. Tacha's younger sister, Jane Ewy, Salina, saw her sister's strong personality emerge in school. "She did everything from cheerleading to band to music lessons. She's an accomplished piano player," Ewy said. "We caU her 'Mrs. Excess' when she decorates. She does everything like she works — to the extreme. But she's good at everything. She's reaUy fun to be around." She's also a great friend to her eight nieces and nephews, Ewy said. Tacha's coUege-age kin often drop in at her home in Lawrence to do laundry and get a good, home-cooked meal. Federal responsibilities In addition to her case load, Tacha's job puts her in charge of administrative matters for the 10th Circuit Court. New Mexico, which is one of just five federal judicial "border districts" in the nation, is the source of many immigration cases. Those five districts routinely handle a little more than 25 percent of the entire federal caseload for the nation. Administration of such a large number of cases, Tacha said, is one of her bigger challenges. Some court observers in the national media have mentioned Tacha as a possible candidate to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court. But Tacha insists she and most other judges do not "particularly aspire to" the job, and chances of such a promotion are linked strongly to the political scene. Lynda Schrivner, a childhood friend who's helping organize Tacha's Scandia celebration, said the judge is a role model for young people. "She's pretty well-known in Scandia. The kids from Scandia definitely know who she is," Schrivner said. Tacha said because of her busy schedule and extensive travel, she doesn't get to Scandia as often as she'd like, and she's looking forward to renewing old acquaintances. "It'll be a wonderful chance for me to see and visit with people I haven't seen for a long time," she said. • Reporter David Clouston can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 131, or by e-mail at sjdclouston Sometime during the night of March 9, 2001, a driver's door on a 2000 Dakota Extended Cab truck was damaged at Long McArthur Ford, 340 N.

Iron / Salina 785-827-4455/ 1-800-432-0224 Budget / New plan in works FROM PAGE A1 Still, the negotiators said they're' getting closer to drafting a plan. "To the audience, it may not appear there's much progress, but we're taking a different approach," said Steve Morris, R- Hugoton, chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. Gov. Bill Graves has said he'll veto any legislative proposal that creates problems in fiscal 2003. "The planning profile has to show that there are at least adequate resources to do the basic things," Budget Director Duane Goossen said. Legislators can help prospects for 2003 by holding spending down in fiscal 2002 and letting the savings build up in the state treasury They also can increase revenues. Graves proposed $117.6 million in tax increases to eliminate the budget hole and provide extra money for education. But finding new revenues doesn't necessarily require a tax increase. The plans from both houses would step up collection of delinquent taxes and tap extra federal nursing home funds, for example. Sxmday was the fifth day legislators returned to the Capitol following their annual spring break and the 90th calendar day of the 2001 session. Lawmakers had hoped to wrap up business within 90 days, but the House and Senate were scheduled to convene today, the 91st day. Before they recessed AprU 6, legislators approved a $9.11 bil­ lion budget bin that contained most of the fiscal 2002 budget. Graves signed it into law last week. The biU appropriated $4.66 billion from the state general fund, the largest source of money for Kansas government programs and where the state deposits most of its tax revenues. The increase in general fund spending would have been about $230 million, or 5.2 percent, over fiscal 2001. The state can't afford it with its current revenues. The House plan trimmed about $75 million from the appropriations, the Senate about $33 million. But Goossen said Graves would like to see lawmakers finance as much as they can of the budget he already has signed. 2001 Spring & Summer Classes Salina Area Technical • 2562 Scanlan Avenue • Sallna, KS. 67401 Mechanical & Maintenance Dates Days Time Cost* Refrigerant Gasses Recovery May 5 Sat. 8:00 a •3:00p $67 CDL - Exam Prep Class Jun.7 TH 8:00 a •5:00p $54 CDL Drive Tests Jun.8&9 F&S By Appointment TBA Intro to AutoCAD 2000 May 1 - Jun. 21 T&TH 6:30 p -9:30p $64 Business & Computer Dates Days Time Developing & Pub.
