A Daily Prayer (From the EpisCople News, Comple Parish, Va.) So far today, God I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, haven't lost my temper, haven't cursed, haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or over-indulgent. I'm really glad about that. But, in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help. Amen.

Anniversary congratulations to Lindsey and David Biber on No- vember 13. All for now take care. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman reminded landowners to consider putting their land in the Conservation Reserve Pro- gram, CRP, during the 18th sign- up period. For the next seven weeks, landowners may apply to enroll environmentally sensitive land in the program. The sign-up period closes Friday, December 11. "I encourage all producers and landowners to consider enrolling their eligible environmentally- sensitive land in this program," said Glickman. "They should get all the facts about how the CRP can be applied across their entire landscape." The CRP is a voluntary pro- gram under which landowners and operators agree to place eli- gible cropland into the program for 10 to 15 years in return for an- nual rental payments and cost- share assistance for establishing conservation practices. The pro- gram was modified in 1997 to em- phasize benefits to the environ- ment in reducing soil erosion, wa- ter and air pollution, and enhanc- ing wildlife habitat. Land enrolled in the program competes for acceptance based on an Environmental Benefits Index, EBI, that ensures fair and equal consideration of all offers and for all types of land. The EBI evalu- ates the offers based on seven fac- tors: soil erosion, wildlife habitat, water quality, air quality, endur- ing benefits, conservation priority areas, and cost. "CRP is a highly competitive program and the EBI has been slightly modified to better protect natural resources," Glickman said. "Applicants should consult with USDA experts locally on how to maximize EBI points, and in- crease the likelihood that their acreage will be accepted." Approximately 30.5 million acres are under CRP contracts as of October 1, 1998. Just over 3.6 million acres are under contracts that expire next year on Septem- ber 30. USDA is authorized to maintain enrollment of up to 36.4 million acres. The CRP is administered by the USDA's Farm Service Agency, in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service, State forestry agencies, and local soil and water conservation dis- tricts.

During the eight-week pro-'. gram, Bloodsworth completed a: variety of training which included~ classroom study and practical in- struction on naval customs, first' aid, fire fighting, water safety and~ survival, and shipboard and air-" craR safety. An emphasis is also placed on physical fitness. Bloodsworth and other recruits also received instruction on the Navy's core values - honor, cour- age and commitment - and how to apply them in their military per- formance and personal conduct. Bloodsworth joins 55,000 men and women who will enter the Navy this year from all over the country. Men and women train together from their first day in the Navy, just as they do aboard ships and at shore commands around the world. To reinforce the team con- cept, Bloodsworth and other re- cruits also were trained in pre- venting sexual harassment and ensuring equal opportunity. Even as the naval service gets smaller over the next few years, highly motivated young people like Bloodsworth are still finding, an opportunity to improve their, knowledge and education as they become part of the most highly, technical naval force in history.: This year alone the Navy will have, more than 57,000 job openings. and opportunities which include guaranteed training. , The graduate of Jefferson High School joined the Navy in June 1998.
