_ Chuck Ringwood, retired, Goodyear Lake.

"It really depends on your situation _ if you are in need, then, yes, you will be concerned, but if you aren't suffering you don't have to worry."

_ Crystal Monroe, unemployed, Oneonta.

"I am for balancing the budget, we are being over-taxed in this state, and everyone should understand that."

_ Tony Moore, retired, Davenport

"As someone who works at a school I worry about it. Education is already down to the bone."

_ Will Maynard, teacher, Oneonta.

"No, as long as they are done in the right programs they need to be done. All the state workers are feeling the same way as the rest of the country has felt the past few years."
