This bacteria primarily infects the lungs, although other parts of the body can be infected. Signs and symptoms include fever, chest pain, cough and muscle aches. Tuberculosis can be transmitted from person-to-person through coughing or sneezing. The spread of tuberculosis can be prevented by early detection and treatment of infected persons who have not yet developed active tuberculosis, but are infected with a latent form of the disease. The tuberculin skin test is a screening test that is commonly used for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. The test material is injected under the skin, and then the area. is observed for interpretation of results 2 or 3 days later. The TB test is typically recommended for persons who may have been exposed to a person with TB or people with symptoms of TB. Medications for treatment of TB must be taken every day for six months or longer. Initially, a combination of the following four drugs is recommended: isoniazid, rifampin, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol. These medications are all bactericidal, and work to kill the bacteria• Ethambutol is more bacteriostatic, and works to prevent bacteria from multiplying. $1 We Now Carry $1 a Great Selection of $1.00 items!

Conservation easement saved Albemarle County When Albemarle County beef producer Jimmy Powell's mother and uncle died in 1999, he needed to find a way to keep their joint farming operation in the family. "Trying to buy land and pay for it by farming is hard to do," Powell said. Powell enrolled in'a conser- vation easement program offered by the Virginia Outdoors Foun- dation and later enrolled in a purchase of development rights program introduced by Albe- marle County. The programs limit his abil- ity to sell the land for develop- ment but compensated him for its market value. "I'm glad I did it. I got what I wanted-I brought the farm," Powell said. Powell was one of three panelists who spoke on "Pre- servation, Conservation & Tax- ation" November 30 at Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 2009 Annual Convention in Rich- mond. The presentation examin- ed tools that farmers and local governments can use to help keep farmland in production. A conservation easement is a voluntary restriction on the use of land granted by a landowner to a governmental agency or private charitable conservation organization, explained Lisa Anne Hawkins, an attorney with Lenhart Obenshain PC in Harrisonburg. An easement can cover all or part of a farm, or specific areas such as riparian buffers, water- sheds, critical habitats or land or structures of historic signify- cance. "One size does not fit all KYLE FLETCHER MAYOR OF ST. PAUL in the Parade producer's farm when it comes to conservation easements," Hawkins said, and in each instance a landowner will give up some right. • "It's important to pay atten- tion to the restrictions; there's a lot to take into account." Under a typical conservation easement, restrictions include division, improvement and use. In some instances use re-, strictions can require actions such as fencing. • .Powell's advice to anyone seeking to put farmland in a conservation easement is to take their time. "Let your attorney and ac- countant look over the paper- work, and make sure you are comfortable with the restrict- ions." Other programs available through counties include agri- cultural and forestal districts and land use taxation programs. Seventy-four counties and a number of other localities in Virginia have land use taxation programs. "Many farmers couldn't afford to keep their land without the land use taxation program," said Lindsay Reames, VFBF assistant director of govern- mental ?elations. "Farmers couldn't afford to farm the land" if payingtaxes based on current market value. With nearly 150,000 mem- bers in 88 county Farm Bureaus, VFBF is Virginia's largest far- mers' advocacy group. Farm Bureau is a non-govemmental, nonpartisan, voluntary organiza- tion committed to protecting Virginia's farms and ensuring a safe, fresh and locally grown food supply.
