Page 6 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST I 3, 2014 Attention lives f 00Iivestock 0000available PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Live- stock producers throughout the state have reported livestock loss- es due to drinking toxic water caused by blue-green algae poi- soning. The algae, truly bacteria (cyanobacteria), are present in most bodies of water, but under the right conditions, the bacteria "bloom" and can become toxic and sometimes deadly. The blue- green algae blooms can grow ex- cessively and produce toxins after heavy rainfall, followed by pro- longed periods of hot tempera- tures. The 2014 Farm Bill did not in- clude blue-green algae poisoning as an eligible loss condition under the Emergency Livestock Disaster Assistance Program (ELAP). The North Dakota State FSA Com- mittee submitted a request to the National Office to include blue- green algae poisoning as an eligi- ble loss condition. The request was approved, therefore producers who suffered livestock losses due to blue-green algae poisoning may submit an ELAP application with their local FSA Office. The following guidelines must be followed for livestock produc- ers that suffered livestock death losses due to blue-green algae poisoning; Livestock that died due to blue-green algae poisoning are only considered eligible for ELAP death loss benefits if it is the first time during the normal grazing pe- riod that livestock deaths occurred due to blue-green algae poisoning concentrated in a specific lake/pond. Therefore, for livestock deaths that occur after the first episode from the same lake/pond, during the same grazing period, are not eligible for death loss benefits under ELAP. Producers must provide ac- ceptable proof of livestock death losses due to blue-green algae poisoning, such as veterinary records, rendering receipts, private insurance documents, records as- sembled for tax purposes, bank or other loan documents, personal di- aries, pictures with date, brand in- spection records, ear tag docu- mentation/records, or other simi- lar records. If other livestock producers in the area witness the losses, a statement from those producers could also be made part of the application. For livestock losses that oc- curred due to blue-green algae from October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2013, the deadline to file an application is August 15, 2014. For similar losses occurring from October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014, the deadline to file an application is November 1, 2014. All supporting docu- mentation must be submitted to the local FSA office by these dead- lines. Please contact the local FSA Office for more information.

The only major thing left is to secure and install the new projector. Getting the new projector has proved to be more dif- ficult than expected for the Lyric. "The company we had working for us just wasn't coming through," said Julie. Because of these issues, the Lyric will be changing companies that they will get a new prje*-:*' tor from. Due to the change in companies, they no longer are sure when the new projector will be here. For now, how- ever, they will be showing recent releases that they get from a company similar to Netflix. They still are re- quired to pay for copyrights for the DVD service. When they do finally go digital, The Lyric will show second run movies, as they have done in the past. They currently are showing movies on Friday and Saturday nights. For information on what is showing, check the city of Park River website under the Lyric tab or check updates on the Lyric Facebook page, www.facebook.com/LyricTheatreParkRiver If anyone would like to volunteer at the Lyric, they can call Julie at 657-2128, the theatre at 284-6199, or sign up at the theatre during show nights.

FIRS T UNI TED 00Sank&lnsurance DO YOU HAVE FIBER? Polar Communications' Fiber-To-The-Home project is ongoing and will be completed no later than 2016. We have been bringing fiber to our rural area to prepare your home or business for the future. You may not realize your need for having fiber optics at your location now, but one day everyone will have a need and it is growing fast. Just like rural water, getting fiber after the completion of this project could cost you thousands of dollars. WHY FIBER? Fiber is fast. Most people don't need speeds that fast.., at least not yet. However, there are more and more applications that will require robust speeds that only fiber can handle.We are seeing increased demands for video streaming and gaming, as well as an increased number of devices in each home that use broadband access. If you have not had fiber plowed to your location and would like more information, please contact our office at 701.284.7221 or 1.800.284.7222. We are open Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p,m. and Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (a%islance by phone)
