,. Clear property &amp; bum debris Church and related carefully to avoid wildfires The sunshine and warm - ,, peratures are sure to entice peo- ple outside and many will want ". to clean up their yards and ' fields. Some will turn to burning the debris they've accumulated ,J. over the past several months. The burning of debris and trash ,.-: .., is the number one cause 0f wild- • i fires in Virginia, so Virginia De- "',, partment of Forestry officials re- "-' commend alternatives tO bum- ' ing, especially under warm and " dry conditions. ..- "Take the debris to an ap- proved dump or recycling facili- ty, said John Miller, VDOF's ': director of resource protection. "" "If that's not an option, consider .. building a brush pile that will ..... . help support wildlife on your ..< proPerty." "'f If someone just bum, be a- ware of state and local laws that ,;,' ,. are in placer for your protection ,:-. and the safety of your family %, and neighbors. The state's 4 '"- p.m. Burning Law is in effect ' through the end of April. Out- " door burning is allowed between • 4 p.m. and midnight every day. .,.:> Burning is prohibited at all other ) times. Violations of the law are -"-Class 3 misdemeanors which :: carry a fine of up to $500. In " addition, anyone who lets a fire . escape is liable for the cost of ' suppressing the fire as well as .. any damage to someone else's "Forest Service property. Certain localities a- cross the state also have additio- nal restrictions. Check With your local fire department before starting a fire. Tips for burning safely: • Contact your local fire de- partment before starting a fire. • Do not bum when winds are up. (If your flags are flapping or your wind chimes are playing their tune, it's probably not a good time to bum." • Keep your pile small--less than l0 feet in diameter and three feet in height. Add material to your fire as the pile bums down. Don't add any material to your fire after midnight. • Clear the area around the pile down to bare soil. • Keep water, kes and shovels handy. • Stay with your fire until it's completely out and you have doused the hot ashes with water. • Have a fully charged cell phone with you and call 911 at once in case the fire should get out of control. (Let the trained firefighters suppress the blaze.)

Topics of.Truth Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 I could probably write a book about all the hundreds of mem- ories 1 have from my childhood days. I've already shared some of them in this column - I'd like to share another. One evening when I was • about I0 years old, we were sitting outside on our front porch after a hard rain. There was a beautiful rainbow in the sky and my Morn remarked that, at the end of the rainbow, was sup- posed to be a pot of gold. Since we were poor country folks, I thought a pot of gold would sure come in handy; so I decided to try and find it. It looked as if the end of that rainbow was just past the barn so 1 went running to it. But, to my surprise, when I reached the barn, it then looked like the end of the rainbow was over in "Wildcat Holler." That wasn't too far away; so off I went running again -just to find that, when 1 got there, the elusive end of the rainbow appeared to be in the "Frank Belcher Holler". By the time I ran to that location, the rainbow had started to fade away. I walked back to the house - tired and broke. As ! grew up, ! still chased the rainbow - so to speak - following broken dreams that seemed to go nowhere; chasing peace I could not find. Then one night atthe age of 25, at an old house where they were having a church service, I fell to my knees crying like a baby - begging God to save my poor soul. Thank God He answered my prayer and that's where ! found my "pot of gold". I found the One who made the rainbows! During Noah's day when the world was destroyed by water, God promised Noah that the Earth would: never again be destroyed by water and He gave the rainbow as a promise of this. God says the-world will be destroyed by fire the next time and ! personally believll that time is near • at hand. A you ready for it? if not, why ntt find yourself an altar somewhere and have a little talk with God. Jesus says He is standing at the door knocking. Are you ready to answer Him! I hope and pray so.

The proposed project will expand and upgrade the existing lagoon-based wastewater treatment plant (Wwtp) to a modem oxidation ditch treatment system. The expansion will increase capacity from 0.400 MGD to 0.999 MGD. Also included in the project are improvements to an influent pump station and installation of a diffuser in the Clinch River to minimize the mixing zone in the river. A water line and sanitary sewer force main line will be attached to the U.S. Route 58A Bridge. This will allow both the water and sewer lines already located in the Clinch River to be abandoned. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities Service has assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed project and has determined that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and for which an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is: (1) impacts will be temporary in nature due to construction; and (2) the requirement of mitigation measures. In order to avoid or minimize any adverse environmental  impacts, the Rural Utilities Service will require the applicant to follow these mitigation measures: No construction will occur on steep slopes containing hardwood tree stands so that the habitat of the Gyandotte beauty can be avoided. In accordance with Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries recommendations, no construction for the project will occur within the Clinch River between March 15 and September 30. In accordance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommendations, fish and mussel surveys will be conducted in the Clinch River and any subsequent requirements resulting from the survey will be i adhered to. All regulatory agency requirements necessary to obtain the required permits for the construction and operalion of the wwtp will be completed and all permits obtained prior to the beginning of construction. In the event unanticipated archaelogical resources are encountered during construction, work in that area will be stopped and the Virginia State Historic Preservation officer will be contacted immediately, Copies of the Environmental Assessment ran be revtewed or obtained at USDA Rural Development, 140 Highland Ddve, Suite 5, Lebanon, VA 24266. For further information, please contact Robert B. Hilt at (276) 889- 4650, Ext. 122. A general location • map of the proposal can be obtained by contacting Rural Development at the above telephone number. I
