Both businesses are owned and operated by Scott Butler. Scott, son of Jim and Ferne But- ler, Superior, is a 1982 graduate of >- Superior High School. His wife, Shelly, (daughter of Dale and Mitze Michels) graduated from SHS in 198 !. The Butlers have two children, Whitney, 16, and Cody, 12.TheBut- lers enjoy golf, fishing and family i vacations. Scott and Shelly chose to keep their home and raise their family in the Superior area while Scott worked the family farm east of Superior. "The farm has been in our family since 1943/' said Scott. "I wanted to stay in the area and take it over." In February, 2001, Scott opened Oak Creek Sporting Goods, selling hunting and fishing supplies as well as sales and repair of golf clubs. "I didn't have an actual store at that time. It was located atthe farm. Moving into town will make it easier for people to find me and gives me a lot more exposure," he said. In February 2003, Scott expanded his business venture to include S & S Sales and Service. where he will be doing small engine repair and golf cart service and repair. "I hope to eventually broaden my sales inventory to include gardening equipment as well tie: mowers, trimmers, etc.)", he explained. Stop by Scott's new location, when you get the chance and welcome him to our business community! i FUNERAL HOMES IIII III iiiii i i FSA offers incentive for white wheat A $20 million incentive program recently am> mced by the Farm Ser- vice Agency could prove beneficial to Nebraska producers who switch to ,, ,wing hard white wheat during the hree crop years. I)ale Kovlnda, directoroftheNuck- oils County FSA Office, said the goal of the agency in new Hard White Wheat Incentive Program is to increase U.S. production of hard white wheat in or- der ,ecome a reliable supplier for the d ,mcstic and export markets. Producers will be offered cash in- centives for growing hard white wheat, according to Kovanda. "Eligible pro- ducers will receive an incentive pay- ment of 20 cents per bushel, up to a maximum of 60 bushels per acre, for their production. Producers usiog cer- tiffed seed may also be eligible for a $2 per acre payment. Furthermore, pro- ducers can receive both payments for the same acre, in the same year." Funding and acreage caps apply to the HWWIP, according to Kovanda. "Funding is capped at $20 million for the 2003 through 2005 crop years. The maximum hard white wheat acreage and production we can issue payments for is capped at 2 million acres or 120 million bushels, which ever is greater." To ensure funds are available for each of the 2003 through 2005 crop years, payments may be factored based on total eligible producers for any year the eligible payments exceed the total funds available to be spent. The certi- fied seed incentive may also be discon- tinued in any year the agency deter- mines funding is unavailable. Kovanda said program enrollment periods will take place annually. Signup for the 2003 program began March 3, but details will likely not be available until mid-March, at the soon- est. Because of the heavy workload with the DCP Enrollment process that ends April 1, Kovanda asks producers if they would be willing to wait until after April 1 to inquire about this new program. D. J.
