PAGE 6 THE PRESS FEBRUARY 27, 2013 USDA Disaster Assistance Program deadline nearing FARGO, N.D. -- Aaron Krauter, State Executive Director of North Dakota&apos;s USDA Farm Service Agency reminds produc- ers to purchase FSA's Nonin- sured Crop Disaster Assistance Program coverage for noninsur- able crops. "Crop insurance is an important risk management tool for farmers, but it's not available for all crops. That's why NAP is so important," said Krauter. NAP is a federally funded pro- gram that provides coverage to producers for noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inven- tory or prevented planting occurs due to natural disasters. Crops el- igible for NAP coverage are those for which crop insurance is not available, including fruits and vegetables, aquaculture, turf grass and forage crops. "Producers must apply for coverage before a disaster strikes," continued Krauter. "Like regular crop insurance, once an application periodcloses, the op- portuni, ty to obtain coverage is passed." The application closing date for spring planted crops is March 15, 2013. In order to en- roll, producers need to contact the local FSA Office where they farm. More information about NAP and where to find your local USDA service Center can be found at www.fsa.usda.go; Farm Service Agency introduces new microloan program PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Don Tongen, Farm Loan Manager for the Farm Service Agency in Walsh County, announced a new Microloan program to increase lending opportunities with fi- nancing up to 35K. Microloans are direct farm operating loans with a shortened application process and reduced paperwork designed to meet the needs of smaller, non-traditional, and niche type operations. "The program will offer more flexiible access to credit and will serve as an attractive loan alter- native for smaller farming opera- tions like specialty crop producers and operators of com- munity supported agriculture (CSA)," said Tongen. "Appren- tice and mentorship programs, non-farm business experience, and farm labor experience are ac- ceptable alternative solutions for helping to meet farm experience and managerial requirements." Operating loaris may be used to purchase items such as live- stock and feed; farm equipment; fuel, farm chemicals, seed, insur- ance and other operating costs, including family living expenses; minor improvements or repairs to buildings, or refinance certain farm-related debts, excluding real estate. Operating loan funds cannot be used to finance nonfarm enter- prises, including earthworms, ex- otic birds, tropical fish, dogs or hoes used for non-farm pur- poses (racing, pleasure, show and boarding): The maximum loan amount for a Mieroloan is $35,000. There is no down payment requirement. For more information, you may contact the Walsh County FSA office in Park River at 701- 284-7771 Ext 2. - The program will offer more flexlble to i .aredlt and will serve as an attractive loan alter- native for smatter farming oper- ations..." i ii T Board Of Education Meeting Park River School Board Notice To Competitors.

'17. Wyatt caught his 19.75 lb. northern pike fish in about 8 feet of water using a tip-up baited With frozen herring. Wyatt's fish measured 41 inches long. Gage caught his 21 lb. northern pike about 30 min- utes later and only 30 feet away. The fish which meas- ured 43 inches long was caught in 4 feet of water using a tip-up baited with frozen herring. They are having both fish mounted. ide note from a grandma's perspective: Gage's tip-up was the first one to snag a fish. Wyatt asked Gage if he could take the fish and Gage said yes. Wyatt worked hard to bring the huge fish up and lo and behold, it was a 19.75 lb northern pike. Gage was happy for his brother. Grandpa Loy told Gage that when you do something good for some- .one else you will be rewarded. Well, about 30 minutes later Gage hauled in a 21 lb. north- ern pike, What a wonderful life lesson learned that day. i 00i00ii!

North Valley/Landgon Rural Water District propose consolidation CAVALIER, N.D. -- At a joint meeting of the two Boards of Directors of North Valley Water District (NVWD) and Langdon Rural Water District (LRWD) in Langdon in Decem- 'ber 2012, there was a unanimous consent to proceed to consolidate the two water systems by January 1, 2014. The NWVD and LRWD systems have actu- ally worked together for a period of years, and the two systems are interconnected through the former ABM military pipeline, with the Edin- burg, Adams, and Fairdale areas served with water from NVWD. .i- " Why consolidated the two sy?, ...... The service areas of the two Stems, which includes Pembina County, Cavalier County, and portions ofWalsh, Ramsey, and Towner Coun- ties have lost populations over the past.decades, creating a challenge to adequately maintain and make system improvements and to adequately staff employees, while keeping water rates competitive, The positives 6f consolidation include cost savings from more efficiency, no loss of jobs, more efficient use of staff, less duplication of services, and more population base to support and stabilize water rates. The new consolidated water system, North- east Regional Water District, will serve some is projected to be about 360 million gallons per year. North Valley Water District customers are served with water from 50 wells in the Icelandic Aquifer, west of Cavalier. Langdon Rural Water District purchases the water for their customers from three sources- the City of Langdon, City of Cando, and North Valley Water District. Over the coming months, a series of public meetings, ads, mailings, etc. to inform the memberships of both systems will be under- taken, working toward a positive vote to peti- 2,300 water hook-ups through.over 2,200 miles t-ion the state ergineer to grant the order creating of pipeline to a population of approximately Northeast Regional Water District, effective 10,000.
