Tempers flared and tears flowed Thursday as desperate parents brainstormed for a strategy to keep the Charles Webb Center for special needs children open past Dec. 31, 2008. The Webb Center is a program of the Disabilities Board of Charleston County. Executive Director Rick Magner told the parents that the state Department of Disabilities and Special Needs cut funding for the Webb Center and the four other centers in the state that provide services for special-needs children. All options were on the table during the freewheeling discussion, including fundraising and pressuring legislators and bureaucrats to restore $150,000 for the center that the state cut. Four other centers funded for special needs in other regions also were eliminated. How can we continue to build prisons and not take care of our most needy citizens Can you help today
