PROJECT...CHS After School participant, Charlie ' Johnson, works on building a Corn Hole Board i during Coach Scammeli's session. This project is an example of the many projects students are involved in d,lring After School. After School will continue through the month of May, Monday through - Thursday from 3:30-5:15 for all CHS students. A light snack and transportation home is provided. Students and parents are reminded that this is the final year of this grant, so don't wait, join us today*. Virginia Intermont holds tuition costs steady for 2013-14 In response to both national and state level initiatives to make college education more affordable for students, President E. Clorisa Phillips announces that Virginia Intermont College will not increase tuition for the 2013-14 academic year. This initiative marks the third year in a row that the private, non-profit college has opted to hold annual tuition cost at $24,542. The recent announcement is good news for current students, as well as for prospective stu- dents. Increased state funding due to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's more than $100 million per year allocation to education has already benefited many Virginia Intermont stu- dents with higher Tuition As- Sistance Grants and more individual f'mancial assistance. Earlier this month, McDon- nell sent a letter to all Virginia college presidents and boards asking their help in finding ways to hold or limit tuition increases. The Governor has a stated goal of an additional 100,000 degrees over the next 15 years, citing that lower education costs to students also improve retention rates and on-time graduation. According to President Phillips, who proposed the tui- tion freeze to VI's board of Conservation trustees, "Even in these chal- lenging times, we consider this move to hold tuition at current levels an investment in our future. The College is committed to careful management of re- sources, and holding our tuition is one of several recent init- iatives we've taken to better serve our students." The National Association of Independent Colleges and Uni- versities (NAICU) reported that at least 24 colleges across the nation froze tuition last year in efforts to make college more affordable help students graduate without spiraling loans. NAICU reports at least 13 other colleges so far thatannounced tuition freezes for 2013-14. As a small liberal arts college, Virginia Intermont fills the niche for students who benefit from one-on-one learning and interactive classroom discussion among professors and peers. In addition to not raising tuition in 2013-14, the College financial aid office works with students to explore applicable resources for financial aid and for qualified scholarships. Ap- proximately 85% of Virginia Intermont students, including both in-state and out of state, receive scholarships or some form of financial aid. Stewardship program applications due May 31 by Secretary Vilsack United States Department of Agriculture Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the Natural Resources Conservation Service's Conservation Steward- ship Program (CSP) will provide nearly $175 million in funding _ for up to 12.6 million additional acres of enrollment this year. "The Conservation Steward- ship Program is different than other USDA financial assistance programs," said Vilsack. "CSP offers payments to producers who maintain a high level of conservation on their land and agree to adopt higher levels of stewardship. It's about conser- vation activities on the entire operation focusing on multiple resource concerns." Vilsack explained that al- though applications are accepted all year, farmers, ranchers and forestland owners interested in CSP should submit applications by May 31 to their local NRCS office to ensure they are con- sidered for this year's funding. The voluntary program al- lows producers to go the extra mile in conserving natural re- sources while also maintaining or increasing the productivity of their operations. Playing a significant part in conserving and improving our nation's resources, producers en- rolled an additional 12.1 million acres in CSP last year, bringing the total number of acres to more than 50 million. Many of the CSP enhance- ments improve soil quality, which helps land become more resilient to extreme weather. Several other improvements are available for producers, in- eluding intensive rotational graz- ing, intercropping and wildlife friendly fencing Because of the extreme weather in 2012, more interest and participation in the cover crop enhancements is expected this year, according to NRCS experts. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help pro- ducers determine if the program is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligi- bility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types. For the checklist and addi- tional information, visit the CSP website http://www'nrcs'usda'gv/wps/p ortal/nrcs/main/national/program s/financial/csp/ or visit your local USDA NRCS office.

This young lady told me one time a story that I will always remember. She said she had a little girl who was around 10 months old and she had no one to leave her with. One spring morning she de- cided to go pick some strawber- ries. She took a blanket and put a bottle on it and went around the field picking strawberries. She said when she got a bucket of wild strawberries she went back to the blanket to get her child but the ch!ld had a visitor When she got b.ack, there was a big rattle- snake coiled up in the baby's lap. She tried to get to her child but the Snake sent her a warning. She grabbed her child by the arm and jerked it as hard as she could down the hill. She said the snake fell out of the baby's lap and just crawled away. Again, I will say that God has a way of taking care of what belongs to Him. Benefit Singing at A.R.
