She credits the support, at least partially, with reducing the cut to the state’s funding of the clinics from 50 percent to 32 percent. But when you already oper- ate on a “bare bones” budg et with next to no administrative overhead, any cut is potentially d i s a s t ro u s. “This is going to be a sig- nificant cut to all our state’s clin- i c s, ” Jones said. “In our case, it’s around $184,000 of our $1 million budget. That’s nearly a fifth of Clinic funds sliced Associated Press PITTSBURGH — A wom- an used forged documents to pose as an estate lawyer for a decade and made part- ner at her small firm before her fraud was discovered, according to charges an- nounced Friday. Kimberly Kitchen was charged with forgery, unauthorized practice of law and felony records tampering. State prosecutors contend Kitchen fooled BMZ Law by forging a law license, bar ex- am results, an email showing she attended Duquesne Uni- versity law school and a check for a state attorney registration fee. Woman posed as lawyer, was named partner MCKINLEY to host senior chat. Page 9-A Associated Press WASHINGTON — Republi - cans muscled a balanced-budget plan through the Senate early Friday, positioning Congress for months of battling President Barack Obama over the GOP’s goals of slicing spending and dis- mantling his health care law. Working into Friday’s pre- dawn hours, senators approved the blueprint by a near party- line 52-46 vote, endorsing a mea- sure that closely follows one the House passed Wednesday. Both budgets embody a conservative vision of shrinking projected federal deficits by more than $5 trillion in the coming decade, mostly by cutting health care and other benefit programs and without raising taxes. The Senate was beginning a spring recess after approving the measure, leaving Congress’ two GOP-run chambers to ne- gotiate a compromise budget in m i d - Ap r i l . The legislation is a non-bind- ing blueprint that does not re- quire Obama’s signature but lays the groundwork for bills that seem destined for veto fights with the president. “Republicans have shown that the Senate is under new management and delivering on the change and responsible gov- ernment the American people expect,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Democrats viewed the doc- ument differently, saying it re- lied on gimmickry and touted the wrong priorities. “The budget we passed to- day is irresponsible and fails to effectively invest in our fu- t u re, ” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. The budget’s solidly ideolog- ical tenor contrasted with a bi- partisan bill the House over- whelmingly approved Thurs- day, permanently blocking perennial cuts in physicians’ Medicare fees.

Along the way, he became one of the most entertaining bas- ketball players ever to wear a WVU uniform and one of the most legendary broadcasters in the NBA. Hundley died Friday, in his home near Phoenix. He was 80. No cause of death was given, but in recent years, Hundley was battling through stages of Alzheimer's disease. “What I will remember is how much love he has for the state of West Virginia and West Virginia b a s ke t b a l l , ” WVU men’s basket- ball head coach Bob Huggins said. “He came back virtually every year to be part of our fan- tasy camp and he was terrific with the campers. “He had an infectious person- ality. It was hard to not want to be around him.” Hundley, born Oct. 26, 1934, in Charleston, grew up poor not knowing much of his family. He was abandoned by his mother, who left the area search- ing for work during The Great Depression of the 1930s, while Hundley’s father rarely showed much interest.
