The Farm Service Agency has been approved to begin taking applications, under the Emer-gency Conservation Program, from producers in Bartow and Gordon Counties that suffered qualifying losses in the January 30 tornado that hit the Counties. We have two practices available to provide assistance Debris Removal and Restoring Permanent Fencing. The debris must be scattered across cropland and/or pasture and hay land and consist of trees and construction debris. If you had damaged or destroyed permanent fencing we can assist with cost shares to restore this fencing. Due to this program not being considered an entitlement program you must have at least $2,000 in qualifying damage to be eligible. Signup will begin on February 18 and will end on Friday, March 15. For further information interested pro-ducers can come by our office located at 717 South Wall St. in Calhoun or call us at 706-629-2582.
It’s time again to start thinking about participating in our annual Run for Your Life 5k. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, April 9 at 6:30p.m. at the hospital. Please note that you must register by March 15 to be guaranteed a technical race shirt. They are not going to order as many extras as they have in the past, as it is a large expense. Please encourage all of your friends to sign up early. You also get a discount by registering before March 15. You can also register online at http://www.active.com/running/calhoun-ga/run-for-your-life-5k-2013-xc449.
