Fire officials urge caution with fireworks, sparklers _ While legal fireworks and sparklers are a popular part of July 4 ' celebrations, ifi-most areas of Virginia they could become a cause of wildfires this year. Many areas of the state have experienced below-average rain- fall, resulting in dry brush and grass. - "One spark is all it would take forha wildfire to stm't," said Fred Turck, assistant director for wildfire prevention and educa- tion with the Virginia Depart- ment of Forestry (VDOF). "Fire- works that have finished burning are still extremely hot, and they can smolder in dry grass or leaves before a fire ignites." Turck recommends keeping a bucket of water; wet towel, and a fully-charged garden hose near- by. Children and pets should also be kept a safe distance away from igniting and spent fire- works. Many types of fireworks (including firecrackers, bottle rockets, skyrockets, torpedoes and other fireworks that explode, travel laterally, rise into the air, or fire projectiles into the air) are illegal in Virginia unless you are a licensed contractor. A good alternative to personal fireworks are the community displays, Check your local news source for information on times and locations. Additional information oJn fire safety can be found on thee VDOF website, Remember, "Only you cain help Smokey Bear prevent wildf'lres." Farm Service Agency committee nomination began June 17 Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the nomination period for local Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committees began on Monday, June 17. "l encourage all eligible far- mers and ranchers to participate in this year's county committee elections by nominating candid- ates by the August 1 deadline," said Vilsack. "County com- mittees are a vital link between the farm community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and provide an opportunity to farmers and ranchers for their opinions and ideas to be heard. We have been seeing an increase in the number of nominations of Women and minority candidates and I hope that trend continues." To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate. Farmers and ranchers may nominate themselves or others, and organizations representing minorities and women also may nominate candidates. To become a candidate, an eligible individ- county period ual must sign the nomination form, FSA-669A. The form and other information about FSA county committee elections are available online at www. Nomination forms for the 2013 election must be postmarked or received in the local USDA Ser- vice Center by close of business on August 1, 2013. Elections will take place this fall. While FSA county com- mittees do not approve or deny farm ownership or operating loans, they make decisions on disaster and conservation pro- grams, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs and other agricultural issues. Members serve three- year terms. Nationwide, there are about 7,800 farmers and ranchers serving on FSA county committees. Committees consist of three to 11 members that are elected by eligible producers. FSA will mail ballots to eligible voters beginning Nov- ember 4. The voted ballots are due back to the local county office either via mail or in person by December 2. Newly elected committee members and alternates take office on January 1, 2014.
