TrY 1- EHO ' FOR THE TROOPS -Walsh County Veterans Service Office Worn U.S. Flag Disposal Spring has begun to show its lace here and there and we go about the process of making yards, houses, cars. and the like look fresh once again. What about theU.S. Flag in your front yard? Is it faded? Is it showing signs of being ripped and torn like it went through a North Dakota winter? Perhaps it is time to replace your flag. Flags can be purchased from various depots and outlets. If you warn your flag made in the U.S. of A. make sure you either look close at the fine print or ask the manufacturer. But back to the tattered and torn flag. What are you supposed to do with it? There have been reports of flags being tossed in the garbage, and that's not quite right. Old Glory is to be disposed of in a proper disposal ceremony. Your flag can be a part of one if you take it your local post office or you can drop it in a specially made flag-drop box outside the Watsh County Administrative Building next to the Law Enforcement Center in Grafton. You can also gather a bunch of used flags and drop them at the Walsh County Veterans Service Office in the Administrative Building. If you have quesnons or concerns regarding flag etiquette or disposal, feel free to call 352-5030. Katrina Hodny Walsh County Veterans Service Officer Administrative Building, 638 Cooper Ave. Grafton V'ozc005 LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD The efforts of the Republican Party to choose a candidate to op- pose President Obama in the November Elections is very enter- taining. This will come to an end in July when a candidate will be chosen at the National Convention. To me the best thing that could happen, would be if Obama is re,elected President for another four year term. This thinking is not only because I am a Democrat. This would be the best thing that could happen to our National Congress, the Republican Party and our Country as a whole, Think of this: IfObama is re-elected the Republicans can give up their hatred of him and forget of de- feating Obama and concentrate on good legislation so they would have a good record to run on in 2016. Obama can only serve eight year total. They could cooperate wifl the President because they know he can't run again for President. It would eliminate all the name calling and the spreading of lies and untruths. This would also give the Obama administration four more years to undo what the Bush administration did in eight years in office. This seems only fair. Most people will agree that the economy is t steadily improving, not fast enough, but is improving and needs moretime. ' - -. - .... -,. ". ' !: .il [ The Republicans have been bashing the Ntional Healthipl'a lassed by Congress and signed by the Presint two years ago/ Why haven't they tried to amend the Health Bill if there are parts they don't agree with? If this plan is defeated we will have to start all over again after trying to get a bill passed since Teddy Roo- sevelt's presidency. On another subject I am disappoimed to note that there are still drivers of vehicles who still don't use their headlights while driv- ing. This is dangerous even at sunrise and sunset but more so in bad weather, including the fog that we have had this spring. Is this because people are stubborn? When I was in the Senate we didn't pass a bill requiring headlights to be on as Manitoba did because we didn't want more mandates. We thought the people would do it for their own safety. Just think there are less than 280 days until the next ND Legis- lature and less than 215 days until the November Election. Best Wishes for a good summer. Harvey Tallackson, Grafton, N.D.

Reminder of Conservation Reserve Program general signup FARGO, N.D. -- USDA's NOrth Dakota Farm Service Agency State Executive Director Aaron Krauter is reminding producers that FSA is conducting a Conservation Reserve Program general signup until April 6. "CRP has been an important part of our landscape for the last 25 years and has provided great environmental md economic benefits to North Dakotans," Krauter said. "'This general signup is an opportunity for our producers to continue this voluntary program." Producers are encouraged to contact their local comaty office to discuss enrolling land in CRR Land offered during the general signup is ranked according to an environmental benefits index (EBI) based on the relative environmental benefits of the land offered. Krauter expects the general signup to be vey competitive since there are over 6.5 million acres expiring across fle country in 2012. "In North Dakota alone, we're looking at over 830 thousand acres of CRP expiring this year, so there's a lot of interest in getting land re- enrolled," Krauter said. "There are several enhancements to offers that producers can make that will make their offer more competitive." Producers are also reminded that if oflred acreage is not accepted during the general CRP signup, land devoted to certain practices may still be el!gible to be enrolled in CRP through the non-competitive continuous CRP signup.
