SCHOOL CALENDAR CHANGED The 1998-99 school calendar has been amended due to the 2 days lost because of bad weather, Nov. 10, 11. Realizing that fo'Ur storm days were built into the original school calendar and the fact that we have lost two days this early in the school year, necessary measures were needed: Dec. 21 &22 At the November school board meeting it was decided that December 21 and 22 would be scheduled as school days and not vacation days as originally scheduled. End result: 1) We will have school December 21 and 22. 2) We will have four storm days remaining. R. Seller BEWARE OF SCAMS Recently several customers re ported calls from a company claiming to be calling on behalf of Farmers Mutual Telephone Company. They claim to be doing our local service bill ing and request customer information. Be alert. These calls are false. These callers can be very persistent. If you receive a call like this, DO NOT reveal any personal information. Instead, ask for a phone number where you can call them back and hang up. Then call the telephone office in town at 568-2105. We can verify whether the call was legitimate+ CANDLES The candle fundraiser is tallied up and will be sent in by Pam Jacobsen.

In a year where everything seems to be testing the ag economy, the agency is juggling lost manpower with the delivery of changing market transition program and never before- needed loan deficiency payments.
