STILES On May 9, 1978 Pal. Ad by Candidate II I I I A FARM By PAT WAIT Spring has come to Jefferson County. Driving over the back roads past the cow herds and the newly plowed fields, we are reminded again, of just how much farming is still a way of life in this area. However, the news tells us that it is much more. Modern farming is a major business and the local farmer in his jeans and boots represents the biggest industry in the county. Last year agricultural products had over sixteen million dollars in sales Since the farm economy is so basic to the economic well being of the county, the future of farming should be the concern of all who live in the area. In 1974 85,885 acres were used for agriculture. How many acres have been subdivided in these four years? How many farms and orchards have been lost? And lost is the proper word here Jefferson County has the most agricultural land classified as I and II (bottom and valley land, minimum slope fdr grazing), than any other county in the state. Once the houses go up on the pastures, after a million years of nature's building those' fields through the eternal seasons, is lost forever to the cow and the apple tree and to us. We cannot make anymore fields. But, we can protect the ones we have. The future of farming in the county is all tied up with the future of the land and how it is used. The people who know the land and are most familiar with its use are the farmers. There must be some way for their knowledge to be enlisted by the County Com- mission and the Planning Commission to save what is left of Class I and II land. "Land use" for the rest of this century should he prescribed by that term; what can the land be used : for? If it can be used for tillage, it should be used for tillage. Houses should go up on treedland on the hills. This is a tall order to consider. However, it would be much more possible if everyone in the county began to think about what kind of land use they want and what is best for the county Lamaze's labor and birth practices: The 7-week classes, which begin April 27 at 7:30 p.m., will prepare couples for a conscious participating ,birth experience. For more in- formation and class registration please contact Mrs. Schiwal at 725-6502 ext 2458 before 6 o'clock and at 725-9458 after 6 p.m. I I I lull I II as a whole. The Farm Bureau is in the business of farming, so it is good for our business. But, considering the economics, farming has been good for all of the County for a long time. It has provided jobs and income to local businesses. It has provided open space and vistas which attract tourist dollars. It has created, within a fast growing metropolitan area, a tranquil atmosphere of an earlier day. We should remember the biblical injunction of Isa. 5:8. Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! C&O Canal National Historical Park Superintendent William R. Pallor announces towpath closures due to maintenance repairs and construction of historic structures. For reasons of public safety, it will be necessary to dose some sections of the c&o Canal National Historical Park towpath during the working period for several construction sites in the Park. It will be possible to open some sections to visitors on weekends but others must remain dosed for the entire construction period. This year, there are a lot of special reasons for you to sit up and take notice of Dodge. Reasons like Motor Trend's Car of the Year, our front-wheel-drive Omni. Reasons for you enthusiasts, too. Like Magnum XE. A personal luxury car equipped with a standard 318 V8. And for families, our mid-sized Monacos. Including wagons that,II handle over 85 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded down. While for added luxury, you might want to consider Diplomat. Luxury, that is, in a most accommodating size and price. And then there's Aspen, which is more or less a car for all reasons, offering packages , to suit your need for thrift, your desire for extra comfort, or even your yearning for a real road machine. , There's a lot mote, too. But ( by now you've probably got the \\; mPicture. So if you want a closer look, see your Dodge Dealer. You'll not I)dg only sit up and take notice, you'll want to say, "Hey, that's my Dodge."
