Reporting crop acreages (certifying) is an annual requirement for those producers par- ticipating in many of the FSA pro- grams, including DCP,-ACRE, and CRP. Producers must remember to bring along planting dates as that data is required aspart of the acreage report- mg process. According to Dale Kovanda, direc- tor of the Nuckoils County FSA office; "Due to budget cuts, reminders are no longer being sent, so producers must make their own appointments to get this task done. Producers reporting after this deadline will face late-filing fees." FSA requesting nominations According to Dale Kovanda, direc- tor of the Nuckolls County FSA office. only two weeks remain for producers in the westcentral portion of the county to nominate an eligible candidate for the upcoming county committee (COC) election. Henry Philip (Phil) Wehrman currently represents that area. which consists of Nora, Nelson, Highland, Aiban, St. Stephens and Victor pre- cincts. Nomination petitions are being ac- cepted for any eligible voter to be a candidate for the COC. FSA is requ- ired to ensure diversity on the county committee and solicit and accept nomi- nations from all eligible producers in the election area, including women and minority nominees. Nomination forms and information is available upon request, as well as on the internet at website "Each County Committee member is elected by the eligible producers in their area," explained Kovanda. "Pro- ducers who serve on county commit- tees help to ensure FSA agricultural programs adequately serve the needs of local producers. They are respon- sible for administering several FSA programs at the county level and deter- mining producer eligibility for many of them." To hold office, a nomination form must be completed and signed by the nominee, who agrees to run for office. Nominating petitions, which are avail- able upon request, must be returned to the FSA Office by Aug 1. Nominating petitions must be signed by the actual voter; not by someone with power-of- attorney, as is allowed for many other programs. -%- HOURS: Wednesday and Friday .=, w 11:30=5:30 p.m. " ' Thursday, 3-7 p.m. ,'t//" Saturday I 0 a.m.-2 p.m. Nifty-Thrifty Shop 410 1 2 N Central Suoenor.

Be- cause of unforeseen circumstances the club has not camped so far this year. Some couples did go to state campvention at Wilbur the first part of June. They were entertained by the Junior Czech Dancers with explana- tions of the dances by their instructor. Later there was a talk by the state herpetologist in relation to snakes. The herpetologist had several snakes with him and showed the markings and how to identify the different kinds lo- cated here in Nebraska. Following that was a food auction with the proceeds going to the scholarship program. Sodbuster members also went camp- ing at Windmill State Recreation Camp Ground at Gibbon this past week end. It was the district campvention called "June Bug" with the theme "Firecracker of a Weekend." Several planned ac- tivities had to be changed because of a severe storm. The baked good auction brought in $300 that was donated to the Central Nebraska Child Ad.vocacy Center. In addition, there was a campfire and sing-a-long with international stu- dents and sponsors from the Christian Student Fellowship, University of Ne- braska. Kearney. The next camp out will be at Wind- mill Park at Gibbon on July 15-17. The hosts will be Jim and Janet Staehr. Terry and Lori Thompson and Gene and Twilla Frerichs.
