every month, and there are go­

Lundy hopes that, with a
favorable response from the
students and faculty this year,
the food drive will become an
annual event. Barth explained,
“Hunger is a local problem,
and it’s not just the residents of
Bumside, either.”
Food barrels have been set

Budget blues
The continuing voter man­
date to hold down property
taxes has State School
Superintendent Verne A. Dun­
can worried about the health of
community college and public
school budgets.
After the May 19 levy elec­
tions, which saw Treasure
Valley, Southwestern Oregon
and Central Oregon communi­
ty colleges losing levy bids,
Duncan said, “I was worried
before the elections, and I’m
even more concenred now.”
“Most voters want property
taxes held down regardless of
state and federal cutbacks to
education,” he said.
Duncan said the “domino ef­
fect” of the state and federal
cuts has caused local boards to
ask votgers to raiser taxes just
to maintain programs.
Clackamas was able to pass
a three-year operating levy in
February, but only after
previous attempts were tu
down by voters.
