[ Certified "Watchmaker for Estimates Seeding your CRP this spring (Part 1) This spring many landowners are scheduled to be seeding or reseeding Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres. People should be planning now if they want to get it accomplished this spring. Seed - Many different seed mixes are available to fit various sites and soil conditions. Seed mixes can be changed as long as they score the same (or higher) as the original CRP offer. Many seed prices appear to be more reasonable than last season- but most of the native grass seeds are still priced high due to the demand. The -prices seem to vary considerably from one vendor to another, so it appears to be worth your while to make more than one phone call! I have calculated from four price lists a difference of about $90/acre to $140/acre + for the various 50 point native mixes. The range on 40 point non-native seedings is $20/acre to $100/acre, plus whatev- er cover crop and required fertilizer cost may be. Some mixes provide bet- ter wildlife habitat and/or are easier to maintain. Whatever mix you use, it must be suitable for your individual site. Where to get seed - Almost all seed dealers are selling at least some of the required native varieties. Many prob- ably do not keep all the different kinds on hand, but can order what you need. Some vendors are specializing in the natives, and some are even pro- viding services like seeding and site I I , Mobile meals i ,, Tuesday, March 2 through Friday, March 5: Lefty & Vi Mehlhop, Isabel Kramer, Russ & Gert Leger Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 12: Ed & Lorene Kiernat, Mary Geier, John and Rose Marie Fridgen i HICKMAN'S Garage Door & More John Htckman Overhead Garage Door Sales & Service i ii preparation.

It is part of FEMA's effort to provide timely, accurate information on preparedness for Y2K. "Being prepared is key to dealing with any potential emergency, whether natural or man made," stated FEMA Director James Lee Witt. "We need to take the same approach we use with hurricanes, tornadoes or floods - repare for the worst and hope for the lest." The Y2K Bulletin contains answers to questions most commonly asked about Y2K, what to do about con- sumer electronic products, including your personal computer, and steps for smaller business owners to take, among other topics. Single and multiple copies of the four-page newsletter are available at no cost from FEMA. To place an order, call 1-800-480-2520.
