DARE, Deputy Friendly programs spared by board

Racine - An overflow crowd, many wearing red or black T-shirts supporting the Drug Abuse Resistance Education and Deputy Friendly programs, and another group dressed in green to support the University of Wisconsin Extension horticulture agent, attended the public hearing Thursday night on the proposed 2005 Racine County budget.

Rather than protest the planned elimination of DARE and Deputy Friendly, people instead thanked County Executive William McReynolds and Sheriff Robert Carlson for finding the money to keep the programs one more year.

Jackie Strelow, president of the Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce, which led the effort to save the programs, said there was overwhelming support from people on the east and west ends of the county.

Strelow gave the board petitions signed by 2,200 people in support of DARE and Deputy Friendly.

The programs are being saved with money from several sources, including a planned donation from Spiegelhoff's Pick 'n Save in Burlington. McReynolds has said the community would have to find the money to keep the programs beyond 2005.

Meanwhile, master gardeners from across Racine County urged the board to restore a planned $15,500 cut from the UW Extension budget, which would reduce the horticulture agent, Patti Nagai, to 20 hours a week.

Rose Woodruff of Sturtevant said reducing the position to part time would affect the Community Garden and dozens of volunteer gardening projects across the county.

The board will be working on budget revisions in coming weeks and is expected to give final approval to a 2005 budget on Nov. 9.
