Department of Agriculture Public Meetings Set Commissioner of Agriculture Cleve Benedict has announced that public meetings on the treatment of gypsy moth witl be held in Grant and Hardy Counties, The meetings will serve a threefold purpose: 1) view the ,Lssues and concerns of local citi- zens regarding treatrnent of gypsy moth in their respective counties; 2) explain the supplemental funding obtained from the United States For- est Service (USFS) for gypsy moth suppression in northern Grant and Hardy Counties; and 3) discuss the Appalachian Integrated Pest Man- agement (AIPM) Project treatments in southern Grant and Hardy Coun- ties. The meetings are scheduled as follows: Grant County -- Jaf)uary 31, 1990, 7:00 p.m., Courtroom, Grant County Courthouse, Petersburg, West Virginia Hardy County -- February 1, 1990, 7:00 p.m., Church of the Brethren Fellowship Hall, Moore- field, West Virginia According to West Virginia De- pallment of Agricukute Fores! Ento- mologist Alan Miller, the USFS has agreed to fund 100 per cent of gypsy moth heatment costs in the areas north of the AIPM [:hoject boundary in Giant and Hardy Coun- ties. The landowners currently signed up for the Cooperatwe Statc~- County-Landowner Program in these areas will be included in this endeavor. Landowners not partici- pating in the cooperative program will be given the opportunity to sign up with their county agent under this supplemental funding until February 1 "[he cnteua 1o~ tleatmen[ under the supplemental funding will follow guidelines prewously seI tooth for the cooperative program. The major points are: indwiduals must have suitable host trees {major compo- nent of oak) and a minimum of 50 acres (small adjacent landowners may go together to meet this crite- rion); forest land managed for timber should have a concentration of 500 egg masses per acre; and wooded developments and/or residential ar- eas must have a tilreshold of 250 egg masses per acre," according to Mr Miller. Mr Miller stated that areas slated for treatment will be designated on maps at these two meetings and landowners that have indicated they want treatment but not signed up will be included in the project. Mr Benedict emphasized that the cutoff date for inclusion in the pro- gram will be February1. This is a necessity due to the time schedule for awarding contracts to vendors and purchasing of material for the project. Landowners are urged to at- tend these two meetings so that fi- nal preparations can be made, Mr Benedict said. Justin Weikle and Becky Sibold of the Nick-o-time 4-H Club in Pickaway, work on Christmas cards made with tissuepaper snow- flakes for children who were in Humana Hospital over the Christ- mas Holidays. During their Christmas meeting, they had their picture taken by Vir- ginia Campbell and the 4-H'ers who are participating in the photog- raphy project. After the business meeting, they exchanged gifts and then enjoyed Christmas goodies made by the 4-H'ers. In January, the 4-H club was told about the poster contest and they plan to have a lot of posters to enter! For the program, Lewis Scott shared his stories and memories of his years in the Philippines. He had some very interesting observations about Philippine culture. January 21, the Nick-o-time Club will join other Monroe County clubs and go roller skating at Green Valley Skating Rink in Prince- ton. conservation tool.
