Today in Capital Outlay: Will Tony Hawk testify?

Um...no, I just made that rumor up.

Now, I grew up around skaters (wasn't one myself - couldn't get the ollie down) and I love them and respect what they do. And I also have a special place in my heart for rural and reservation kids who don't get the chance to grind urban rails.

But, at the same time, with the budget as it is, do these two projects before today's capital outlay committee even have a chance?

Rep. Ray Begaye, D-San Juan, wants $250,000 for a skate park in Shiprock.

Rep. Jose Campos, D-DeBaca, wants $150,000 for a skate park in Melrose.

And what do I want?  $2 million for an Ethiopian culture center.
