There is now a possibility that a portion of the state pro~am will be saved. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum {R-Kans.) has introduced an amendment I support to the 1981 budget resolution that would restore 40 per cent of the state program. This represents $700 million. To make up the difference in the budget, categorical grants--money issued by federal agencies for specific programs -- would be cut by I0 per cent. Many state and local officials have supported this concept. They prefer the flexibility of the revenue sharing program because it allows them to decide how the money can best be used, and state governments haves much better track record in spending revenues wisely. $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ There's some good news on the home mortgage front. As I mentioned in a previous column, Rep. AI Ullman has succeeded in getting a bill through the House that would restrict the use of tax-exempt state and local bonds for home mortgage loans. But Sen. Russell Long, chah'man of the Senate Finance Committee, has made it clear he has no intention of letting similar legislation move through the Senate. This is welcome news for homebuyers and the Wyoming Community Development Authority IWCDAJ, which has been offering low-interest home loans. !n a to, the Louisiana state legislature, Long said that h'e had asked the administration for its thoughts on the problems faced by the housing industry and homeowners: "About all we can get from them is a lot of confusion finding faults with suggestions we make. It leads me to the conclusion that the prevailing view in the administration circles must actually want to see the housing industry stay shut down for the remainder of this year." Because the Ul]man bill would cut off the one remaining avenue for local governments to help young families and home builders, Long said he could not support it. "Until further notice," he said, "we on the Senate Finance Committee will sit on it like an old hen on an egg." He'll get no arguments from me on that one. As an alternative to Ullman's bill, however, I plan to keep pushing for legislation that will allow programs llke WCDA to continue operating. Charlene Rawls of Wilson, Wyo. is one of 27 American athletes commended by the U.S. Senate in a resolution passed this week and coSl Onsored by Sen. Alan Simpson and me. The resolution recognized their participation in the Second Winter Olympics for the Physically Disabled held in Geilo, Norway in February. The Americans competed with over 400 disabled athletes from 18 countries and won six medals; four gold, one silver and one bronze. A below the knee amputee, Charlene did not win a medal in Norway, but she did win the cheers and admiration of the spectators. After falling at a gate in a slalom event, she climbed back on her skiis and finished the course. Four days after the Olympics, as the American team's top contender in the slalom and giant slalom events, Charlene took four firsts at the National Handicap Championships in Winter Park, Colo. It is important that we honor these athletes in the same tradition and spirit that we honor those who participated in the Lake Placid Olympics. Their achievements are no less Olympian. Indeed, they are champions over greater obstacles than slalom gates and stopwatches. Birth Mr. and Mrs. Tim Moore are the parents of a daughter born April 26 at the Belle Fourche Health Cam. Center.

REMINDER Grasshopper infestation seen High populations of grasshop- pers which are expected to infest Wyoming this summer will likely continue for several more years, according to Bob Pfadt, Univer- sity of Wyoming professor of en- tomology. He says some two million acres of Wyoming land are expected to be infested by eight or more grasshoppers per square yard -- the basis for assuming economic damage by the pests. Pfadt says predictions were made last summer by personnel in the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) and the Fed- eral Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service {APHIS), two He says treated after pest hatched and can lay eggs. occurs from late July.
