Safety Of Children Stressed The Jefferson County Board of Education held a brief business meeting Sept. 11. Superintendent of Schools Raymond Frazier told the board his office had received a number of calls expressing concern for the safety of children waiting for school buses along the county's highways. He said the concern dealt with the possibility that the youngsters, unconcerned by danger, might dart into the high- way into the path of an oncoming ve.hicle. Frazier told the board he planned a special appeal to parents and children to avoid possible highway injuries. In personnel actions, the board approved the appointment of Paul Wilmoth to head up t.he driver education and physical education programs at Jefferson High School; and appointed Sherrir Caplan as special education teacher at Charles Town Junior High School. Turning to salaries, the board voted increases for bus drivers operating special runs. Four bus drivers who transport students to James Rumsey Vo-Tech Center in Berkeley County had their supplemental salaries raised from $180 to $200 a month, while twelve district bus drivers who make mid-day kindergarten runs in the county had t heir supplements increased from $75 to $100 a month. Superintendent Frazier also announced the enrollment figures for Jefferson County as of Tuesday, September 12. The compilation showed 3,556 elementary level students. 423 of these kindergarten; an 2,691 secondary level students; a total of 6,249, higher than last year's two year figures by 48. Set Comments Program October 1st is the deadline for omments to the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture on the Roadless Area Review and Evaluation Project (RARE II). RARE II is a nationwide project to identify and evaluate roadless areas for their wilderness potential. Twenty- four areas have been identified in West Virginia. The Monongahela National Forest contains 22. Two are located on the George Washingn National Forest, based at Harrisonburg, Virginia. Each roadless area has been carefully studied and then grouped into 10 tentative alternatives for public review. Each alternative method of allocating areas to wilderness or non-wilderness is evaluated in a Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Forest Supervisor] Ralph Mumme has stressed that these 10 alternatives are simply different ways of looking at the allocation problem. They are provided as examples. The public is invited to support one of the Forest Service alternatives, to suggest modifications, or to suggest entirely different ways of allocating the roadless areas. Comments are also sought from the public on individual RARE II areas and on the decision criteria "to be used in selecting the alternative to recommend to Congress. Congressional action will he necessary to place any area in the National Wilderness Preservation System. Dolly Sods and Otter Creek are two existing Wilderness Areas in West Virginia that were added to the Wilderness System by Congress in 1975. They are located in Tucker and Randolph Counties. Comments must be received by October 1, 1978, in order to he considered in the preparation of the Final Recommendation. Grain Formulas Proven Yield May Be Revised The Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) is considering revising its proven yield formulas for feed grains to include crops harvested for other than grain, according to John W. Hendricks, Jr., Chairperson of the Jefferson County ASC Committee. Currently, only the crops a farmer harvests for grain count toward establishing a proven yield. Yield determinations are the basis for federal farm program paymen[s and some loans, Hendricks said. Individual farm yields are currently established on the basis of their relationship to the established county "check" yield, except for those farmers who choose to prove ,i SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1978 7 their yields. The commiReeman said a task force has been appointed in Washington to consider ways to measure yields for feed grain crops that are used for other than grain. Pre-harvest ap- praisal is one method under study. "We are encouraging every farmer interested in establishing a proven yield to request an appraisal from the ASCS office," Hendricks said. "It won't cost a cent, and if ASCS does change the formula, the appraisal could help many farmers prove yields that can't be proven under the present procedure." The appraisal, a systematic field survey, is an estimate of the bushel or tonnage basis a crop would yield if harvested for grain. Interested farmers should visit the Jefferson County ASCS Office at 209 E. Third Avenue, Ranson, to request an appraisal. A queen termite has been known to lay eggs for 50 years! )?iLi: il ....
