CLINCH VALLEY TIMES Re-use your Christmas trees after the holidays When the holidays are over, you could chuck your Christmas tree into the woods or take it to the dump, but there are plenty of ways you can repurpose it. Horticulturalist Mark Viette in Augusta County is no stranger to reusing items in his landscape, including his Christmas trees. Viette appears on Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's week- ly television program, Real Virginia. One way to reuse ever- green trees, Viette said, is to set them out in your gar- den. He recommended putting a tall post into the ground and securing the tree trunk to the post to hold it upright. "The reason this is a good thing to do is it gives a place for birds during the winter months to hide," he said. "This is really great if you don't have any ever- greens in the garden." Consider decorating the tree for the birds by hang- ing strings of cranberries or St. Paul, Va.

Loan repayment program to help veterinarians in underserved areas Due to a continuing shortage of large animal veterinar- ians in rural areas, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture is seeking nominations for its Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program. The VMLRP helps qualified veterinarians offset a sig- nificant portion of their college debt in exchange for their service in high-priority shortage areas. To determine which veterinarians are in need of the loan repayment program, the NIFA is seeking nomina- tions for shortage areas in 2017..Each state's top animal" health official has until Feb. 8 to nominate underserved areas for the program. For 2016, the following Virginia counties were deemed in critical need of large animal vets: Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott and Wise. Counties with a moderate need were Alleghany, Bath, Bland, Highland, Patrick, Smyth and Tazewell. A growing shortage of large animal veterinarians has been a problem for more than a decade, and the Virginia- Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and Virginia Farm Bureau Federation have lobbied for a solution. "We've found that in rural areas especially, our live- stock farmers have had trouble getting quick access to a vet because there just aren't enough to go around," said Wilmer Stoneman, VFBF associate director of govem~ mental relations. "It's crucial for our farmers to have rep: utable vet care, and that's why this loan repayment pro= gram is so important. Giving an incentive for vets to prac'- tice in these underserved areas should go a long way toward reduc g the shortage.' .... Qualifying veterinarians who agree to provide services in shortage situations for at least three years are eligible tO receive up to $25,000 of their student loan debt per year.
