Editor Yearly Subscription Rates Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino Counties 9.00 Elsewhere in the United States 9.50 Editorial Indefinite string of unbalanced budgets Our President -- no matter who he is -- will find it extremely difficult to bring the federal budget into balance during his next four-year term. That prospect was dramatized when Carter gave up on his 1976 campaign pledge of a balanced budget by 1981. Instead of the 16.5 billion-dollar surplus predicted in spring, the White House has estimated that the budget will be 29.8 billion in the red in the 1981 fiscal year starting back on October I. For the current year, Carter forecast a 60.9 billion deficit, compared with a shortfall of $36.5 billion estimated in the spring. If the new prediction is right, this year's deficit will be the second largest in United States history. What worries many economists is this: While budget deficits may be in order during a recession, they are inflationary if continued during prosperity. The last budget was in 1969. Many economists have doubts that no matter who governs, deficits will keep coming up. Another balanced budget doesn't seem possible in the next four years, since the tax reductions being talked about now is going to be costly. It has been said by economists mat in five years it's possible, but the government would have to hold down the rate of increase in spending and allow revenues to rise. Also, underscoring the problems facing the White House are programs for which officials scaled back earlier plans but still forecast in- creased spending. Education, training, em- ployment, and social services up $1 billion from 1980. Energy, up $.7 billion; veterans' benefits and services up .9 billion. The administration still hopes to trim outlays in some of its biggest programs. Among those in the 1981 plans: Transportation, down $1.6 billion from 1980; natural resources-environment, down $.6 bil!ion; international affairs, down $.6 billion; community and regional development, down $.2 billion. Still, despite all the election-year rhetoric we have heard for belt tightening, all signs point to an indefinite string of unbalanced budgets in the 1980S. So, don't expect miracles with the new ad- ministration. No matter who it is! III People people Editor: In response to last week's unauthoied letter, singling a racial group out for a crime committed, I would like to comment. It seems to me that people are people. The color of the skin or the place of birth has no real validity in determining the qualities or character of an individual. American Caucasians obviously cannot be classified in .general as troublemakers, nor are they in the media = when identifying in- dividuals who have com- mitted a crime, how could any other race be singled out and classifid as such? When people start grouping and discriminating this race as troublemakers and in- truders and that race as the "good guys" and owners of the town, we are asking for BIG trouble (besides denying basic constitutional human rights given to all people, regardless of race-. Each' individual is responsible for his or her actions, and we respond, as all of us know, by the way We are treated. If we are treated with prejudice and hatred, and as being less than human, he " Will probably respond with hurt and anger. If we are treated with dignity, kindness and compassion, we will probably respond by being the best person we know how to be (unless our heart Letters to the Editor is made of stone, which perhaps some hearts are). "Hate ceases to be hate only by rove.;' Leading geneticists are now agreeing that all mankind, regardless of color are related to at least the 5(Xh cousin, and most people, regardless of color, are related to a much closer degree than that. In other words, we all are really a blend of all otbpr races, regardless of what color happens to appear on the surface. It seems to me that the sooner we all are able to rise above our prejudice, the sooner we'll all be able to enjoy peace and" harmony. It is inevitable that all races are to live together, so why fight it? When all the dif- ferent colored flowers grow together in!he same-garden, each enhances the beauty of the other. Black doves flock together in harmony with , white doves. Personally, I like variety in people too. Other cultures have beautiful qualities that we white, middle--class Americans could learn a lot from, if only we take off our blinders and. look for them. However, if there is a reoccurring problem at the river by certain individuals, can't we simply call our legal authorities to con'ecq the problem, as we do for any vandalism problem, instead of townspeople building up prejudice and hatred (which inevitably leads to strife) ? Diana Hudson Big thanks Editor: On behalf of the members of the St. Peter's Altar Society and my committee, I wish to say a big thank you for your publicity of our Fall Annual Rummage Sale. We sincerely appreciate it! Our sincerest thanks, too, to all the people who brought clothing and many other things for the success of the sale. The profits, of course, will go toward the Chidren's Education Program (CCD) which this year has greatly increased attendance. Pastor Fr. Henry of St. Peter's joins me in thanking everyone who cooperated for this event. Norma Hlxson, Chairman St. Peter's Altar Society Rummage Sale "\\; Loss of face Editor: If you're anything like me and mine, you've tried to figure out a way to free the hostages; to bring them safely home to their families. If you're anything like me and mine, you've failed. Of course, we could're bombed or demolished, but the hostages would've died too, and isn't the idea to get them out alive? One wouldn't think se, listening to Mr. Ford and Mr. PeagaJrl bemoan 1 our "humiliation." It would seem "loss of face" is more tragic than loss of life. Despite his shortcomings, President Carter has not lost sight of the fact that bringing these Americans home alive is what it's all about. C. D. Grant Cioverdale Fine spirit Editor: An article in your paper, I believe on October I, about the horseless carriage club of Santa Rosa stopping by here on the way to Ukiah. A rest stop arranged by the Chamber of Commerce, had. them at the Ve Building for coffee. I do wish to give credit for this to Pat Rose and Vivian Weer for the welcome they gave the members. This service made all feel welcome to Cloverdale and they want to come back to show the cars again. The club and I wish to thank Pat and Vivian for their fine spirit of cooperation and help make people want to come to Cloverdale.
