Astrid Neira (pronounced NADA) arrived in New York on July 27 from her home in Denmark. Axel Schin- koreit arrived from Germany in New York on Aug. 3. During their time in New York, they tried to acclimate to the United States and our customs here. The acclimation period seemed short but was useful to them. They agreed their first week in this country was mostly exhausting. This reporter assumed they both suffered from jet lag but both Axel and Astrid said that was not the case.

They said hearing a foreign lan- guage spoken continuously is tiring as they struggle to hear and understand not only the words people speak but the accents as well. After a week or so of being immersed into a culture and language foreign to them, they regained their energy levels. I asked about "culture shock" and if they felt a huge gap from where they were raised. Both Axel and Astrid were sur- prised we say the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and asked, "Why do we pray to the flag'?" I asked if they were familiar with the Catholic church and they said, "Yes.' I explained the flag is much like the statues in a Catholic church It is a symbol of the freedom that our soldiers fought for and still fight for today. It is not the statues that are being prayed to and it is not the flag that is being prayed to. They are sim- ply the symbol of what we are pledging our allegiance to and the symbols of what we are praying for. Aside from the pledge, we visited about the differences in school and society in general. The whole structure of school here is much stricter since they have so much homework and have to turn it in every time to be graded. Axel said he liked that the students here could choose their classes where in Germany they were told what classes they were to take and everyone took the same classes. The classes he took in Germany in the 8th and 9th grades are 12th grade level here. He is a senior here. School is much more relaxed in Germany because' the students can do their homework during school hours: They do not have after school activi- ties that are tied to school. If they choose to take a sport, it is not part of the school curriculum. It is a personal activity. There is no homework to take home to do because they do it at school while the teachers are present to help / ;omes FSA reminds producers of sales closing date for noninsurable crops Nuckolls County USDA Farm Ser- vice Agency (FSA) executive director, .lay VanWesten, urges producers who want to purchase coverage through the Noninsurable Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) to do so before the sales closing date of March 15. NAP covers losses from natural di- sasters on crops for which no perma- nent federal crop insurance program is available. "Purchasing NAP protec- tion is an easy way for producers to practice risk management," said CED VanWesten. "Recent years have proven that natural disasters can directly af- fect the profitability and recovery of agricultural operations." The following crops in Nuckolls County have a NAP application dead- line of March 15: Spring Seeded Mixed Forage, Alfalfa, Grass for forage and grazing, Oats, and Spring Seeded Veg- etables. In order to meet eligibility requirements for the NAP, crops must be noninsurable, commercially-pro- duced agricultural commodity crops for which the catastrophic risk protec- tion level of crop insurance is not avail- able. If the Risk Management Agency (RMA) offers coverage for a crop un- der the insurance program in the county, then NAP coverage is not available for that crop. In the event of a natural disaster, the NAP program previously offered cov- erage at 55 percent of the average mar- ket price for crop losses that exceed 50 Vestey Senior Meals Program March 13 to March 17 Monday: Creamed chicken, peas'n carrots, coleslaw, pears, biscuits Tuesday: Ham patty, sweet potato casserole, green beans, tossed salad, peaches. Wednesday: Roast turkey, mash potatoes with gravy, stuffing, peas, carrot pineapple Jell-O, cranberry rel- ish, cake and ice cream. Thursday: Half turkey sandwich, vegetable beef soup, carrot and celery sticks, yogurt fruit cup. Friday: Salmon patty, cheesy pota- toes, broccoli, three bean salad, applesauce. Byron Fire Dept. continues annual wild game feed By Sandy Larkey Saturday, Feb 18, was the date for the Byron Fire Department's annual wild game feed. There wasn't any wild pig on the menu, but there was sure a lot of "pigging out" done. The event was held in the spiffy Byron Community Center, and the room was packed. I guess there were at least 30 tables seating eight people per table. The menu included (in various forms) venison, rabbit, pheasant, shrimp and alligator jambalaya, sev- eral elk dishes including spaghetti, roast elk, my favorite elk chili and elk san- percent of expected production based sage with sauerkraut, goose sausage on the approved yield and reported gravy and biscuits, goose kabobs, bat- Axel Schinkoreit, Germany, and Astrid Neira (Nada), Denmark are foreign acreage.
