SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, APRIL 20,1978 'Uttle People's' Fund-Raising Day Set May 13 by Charles+ Town, Ranson Mayors Ranson and Charles Town Mayors have designated Saturday, May 13, a fund-raising day for the Day Care Center "Little Peoples Place". Pictured above on the left is John R. Luce, owner and manager of WXVA Radio Station; Mrs. Michael Brown, president of the Board; Dr. D. C. Master, mayor of Charles Town; Mrs. Billy Dale Smith, who will be director of the center; and Daryl Johnson, president of the Lions Club. Mayor Kelley Lance, of Ranson, was unable to be present when the picture was taken. The need for a Day Care volvement has been to facility was brought to the at- familiarize the community with tention of the residents of this the need and provide a way for area about five years ago when Judy Pittinger, of the Welfare Department, called together a group of concerned citizens and community leaders to form a committee to study the problems and locate a suitable building. These first years were very discouraging as no facility could be found that was adequate or met the Fire Marshal's stan- dards until the Lions Club of- fered the lower level of their building on George Street in Rinses, a site the board feels is idealy located to be easily ac- cessible to the families in the community. The Lions Club of Charles Town is to be commended for their awareness in sensing this great need !in their munity and putting into action their motto "We Serve", by offering to the Day Care Center these facilities for a five year period, rent free, allowing the program to become well established. A minimum of $11,000 is / needed to put Little People's Day Care Center into operation. This money may be used as matching funds for a govern-! ment grant or as a down payment with the bank for a loan to finance the remodeling. It will be financed solely on the charged, both to : ,e, . those placed through the Dept. of Welfare. All money received will be in turn spent on utilities, supplies, food, salaries and to offset the cost of renovation and equipment to begin operation. The initial problem is sufficient funds to meet, not just minimum stan- dards, but quality standards in the type and amount of equip- ment than can be purchased and used effectively. The center will offer full-day care, Monday thru Friday from 7 a.m. till 6 p.m. for all potty trained children ages 3 to 6 years, regardless of race, creed, national origin, or financial situation. It will be a non-profit, non-discriminatory agency. When this five-year dream becomes a reality it will be due to the tireless efforts of its board of directors of which +Mrs. Michael Brown is President; Mrs. Billy Dale Smith, Director. Other board members are: Mrs. Earl Wean, Jr., Mrs. Paul F'ropps, Ms. Elizabeth Gault, Mr. William Stine, and Mr. Douglas Rockwell providing much needed advice and assistance in legal matters. +The program received a boost when the Committee on Missions of Asbury U.M. Church adopted "The Little People's Place", as their home mission project. The chairman of Asbury's Mission Board stated their anyone to participate as well as making their own donation. The realization of this fine facility for our community must depend a great deal on the support and generosity of in- dividuals, businesses and local groups of this area. On this day John Luce, owner and manager of Radio Station WXVA, will hold a Radio-Thon from Lions Center, where donations may be phoned in between the hours of 12:15 and 5:30, or brought to the Lions Center. This special Little People's Day will begin with an auction at 9:30 a.m. Coffee and doughnuts can be enjoyed while bidding on many assorted items donated by indivuals and businesses.

The generous giving of oneselt! through service and donations has been the American Way of Life and it is in this way many outstanding facilities came into being. Here is an opportunity to be part of this great American way of making things happenr our Little People and ultimately making them happy for our- selves. Structure Loans A00ilable At Seven I Percent Interest Farmers may now obtain Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) loans to build blgh- moisture forage and silage structures and for remodeling existing structures. Previously, loans were available only for construction of new facilities for high-moisture grain or grain silage and dry grain. Ray Fitzgerald, administrator of USDA's Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS), said this action will be of particular benefit to dairymen and livestock producers who need storage for grass silage, and to grain producers with storage facilities that need modification and remodeling to increase capacity and efficiency. In general, provisions fox current farm facility loans will apply to the new loans. However Fitzgerald noted that borrowers must provide adequate security to protect CCC's interest in loans used to modify existing struc- tures. During the past year, farm facility ban provisions have been broadened and liberalized to help achieve the goals of the grain set-aside and farmer- owned reserve programs. Eligible producers may borrow i up to 85 percent of the cost of buying and installing storage facilities and drying equipment, inc!pdi0g concrete an d wiring :/c. e 10an limit fdl' this nse has been increased to $50,000 from $25,000. Other changes allowed storage needs to be based on two years' production rather than one, except for storage capacity used for the grain reserve program; reduced down payments required of farmers from 30 percent to 15 percent; reduced interest rates on loans from 7.5 percent to 7 percent, and ex- tended the repayment period from five to eight years. As a result, loan activity has increased substantially, noted Mr. Fitzgerald. During the first five months of fiscal year 1978, the program made 39,875 loans totaling $342.4 million to build structures with storage capacity of 406.7 million bushels. During the same period a year earlier, 6,728 loans were made, totaling $34.6 million, for storage capacity of 50.1 million bushels. Additional information about the farm facility loan program and its eligibility requirements may be obtained from the Jef- ferson County ASCS office at 209 E. Third Avenue, Ranson.
