RCH 12, 2014 THE PRESS PAGE 5 r ,400&apos;Ed V'ozcE00 Farm safety seminar to take place on March 19 By Kevin Hall PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Farmers -- It's been a long, cold winter and the weather has final- ly given us a few warmer days. Now that there's tiny patches of dirt showing out in the country, we're all getting ready to lunge headlong into spring's work. Be- fore we all get too carried away though, I'd like to ask you to take a moming to think about safety. Walsh and Pembina County Farm Bureaus, along with Walsh Cbunty Extension are hosting a farm safety seminar on March 19th, from 8:30 am to noon, at the Walsh County Extension Office in Park River. The seminar is free, open to anyone, and we will serve a free dinner afterwards. We are bringing in safety experts to cover topics like grain bin safety, OSHA standards for family farms, safe handling of anhydrous am- mania, avoiding crushing in- juries, and many more topics. We know we can't cover every po- tentially dangerous situation that farmers will encounter, but it's our goal talk about a bunch of the big ones. So, farmers, please consider at- tending our safety seminar (and spouses or significant others, maybe pressure them a little), be- cause I would like to see the meet- ing room full. More importantly , I'd like to see the local emergency rooms empty. Editor "s Note: Hall from Hoople, N.D., is the president of the Walsh County Farm Bu- reau. Kick Butts Day to promote tobacco-free lifestyle GRAFTON, N.D. -- March 19 marks the nineteenth annual Kick Butts Day, a national day during which youth are encour- aged to stand up and speak out against tobacco companies. Walsh County Health District and the North Dakota Center for Tobac- co Prevention and Control Poli- cy (the Center) are using this oc- casion to educate youth about the dangers of tobacco. They are also , educating the public on how to- bacco companies continue to use corrupt marketing practices to target our youth, despite the prom- ises made in the 1998 tobacco set- flement to end this deadly practice. Research shows that 600 North Dakota youth under the age of 18 become new daily smokers every year, and 14,000 youth will die , : prematurely from smoking, In :-addiiorf, 1.9 : millibn: packs  of cigarettes are bought or smoked each year by youth under 18. According to Jeanne Prom, -----executive director for the Center, tobacco companies are spending millions in North Dakota each year to. get the youth smoking rates up. Prom said that some of the tactics tobacco companies use to attract youth are candy- and fruit-flavored tobacco products, providing discounts and sales that [hake their products afford- able find paying retailers to pmmi- nentiy display tobacco products in high-traffic areas. Stacy Langen with Walsh one about the harmful marketing schemes tobacco companies are using to trap youth into using to- bacco. "It's essential that we continue to educate our youth about to- bacco marketing practices so they can identify those tactics and avoid being lured into tobacco use," said Stacy Langen. "Edu- cation is key in tobacco preven- tion." Another effective way to re- duce youth smoking rates is to in- crease the cost of tobacco. Re- search supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Preven- tion and theAmerican Lung As- sociation shows that " " North Dakota's tobacco tax from $.44 to $2 would reduce youth smoking rates by 25 percent. "By making tobacco less af- fordable, kids are less likely to try using tobacco," Prom said. "North Dakota projections show us that a $2 cigarette tax has the poten- tial to prevent nearly 8,000 kids from ever starting to use tobacco and can save millions of dollars in health care costs.

First class fishing Photo: Larry Biri Above: Believe it or not Paul Landeis drove his Mercedes on Fordville Dam for the Dakota Prairie Wildlife Club's fishing der- by held March 1. Paul used it as a windbreak but it wasn't long before he was inside a friend's ice house to continue his fish- ing. Remember: Fish houses need to be removed from all waters by midnight, March 15, of each year. They can be used af- ter March 15 if they are removed daily.

Participants then had a chance to visit potato growing and processing op- erations throughout Wisconsin, including Heartland Farms, Okray Family Farms, the Hancock Ag Re- search Station Storage Facility, and the Wisconsin Dairy State Cheese Company facility. During the second half of the program, the Lead- ership Institute traveled to Washington, D.C., for sessions on lobbying, media training, and business etiquette. The class also participated in team building exercises, including the Iron "Potato" Chef Competition, where each team was given a pantry list and challenged to prepare a nuRitious, creative, and satisfying meal that included potatoes and ground beef in one hour. Attendees joined in the discussions on public pol- icy ished withi daS,fl0bbying visitgWith member offices on Capitol Hill, where participants joined their state grower delegations in town for the Fly- In in advocating for policies that will improve the long-term health of the industry. Eric Schroeder of Schroeder Bros. Farms Inc. in Antigo, Wisc., served as the group's Grower- Leader, after being elected to the position by the 2013 Leadership Institute class. At the conclusion of the event, the 2014 class elected Reid Mattive of Worley Family Farms in Monte Vista, Colo. to serve as the 2015 Grower-Leader. The Institute is made possible each year through a major sponsorship from Syngenta. For additional photos, visit www.facebook.com/nationalpotato- council.
