THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3 I, 2018 Pa e 5 ,cq WASHINGTON -- Earlier this month, Walsh County was listed among the contiguous disaster counties. In two letters from the United States Department of Agriculture, disaster designations were identi- fied for several counties in North Dakota. On Oct. 5 Eddy, FOster, Nelson, and Wells counties were identified as primary natural disaster areas by the USDA due to a recent drought. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor (see http://droughtmoni-, these counties suf- fered from a drought intensity value during the growing season of: 1) D2 Drought-Severe for 8 or more consecutive weeks or 2) D3 Drought-Extreme or D4 Drought- Exceptional. In accordance with section 32 l(a) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act, ten counties are named as contiguous disaster counties. The contiguous counties included under this designation are: Benson County Grand Forks County Griggs County Kidder County Pierce County Ramsey County Sheridan County Steele County Stutsman County , Walsh County On Oct. 17, Pierce County was shifted from a contiguous counties to a primary natural disaster area. Dickey, Sargent counties were added to the list of contiguous dis- aster counties. Other counties in North Dako- ta may have already been desig- nated as natural disaster counties if they had previously met the re- quirements found under 7 CFR 759.5(a) for the current crop year. A Secretarial disaster designa- tion makes farm operators in pri- mary counties and those counties contiguous to such primary coun- ties eligible to be considered for certain assistance from the Farm Service Agency (FSA), provided eligibility requirements are met. This assistance includes FSA emergency loans. Farmers in eli- gible counties have 8 months from the date of a Secretarial disaster declaration to apply for emer- gency loans. FSA considers each emergency loan application on its own mer- its, taking into account the extent of production losses on the farm and the security and repayment ability of the operator. Local FSA offices can provide affected farmers with further in- formation. ]nbT. 117 r, 1,-. -- A Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray or grease a 9-inch pie pan and set aside.
