PAGE 6 THE SUNDANCE TIMES MAY 8, 1980 years of age and under in Crook county have been adequately im- munized against the seven pre- ventable diseases. "But we know that approximately 77 children lack protection against polio, 24 against measles, 23 against re- bella, 27 against mumps, and 63 against diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough," she said. She urged parents, particularly those with children who will enter Crook county schools for the first time next fail, to check and begin updating immunization records as soon as possible. School children, need at a minimum, four doses of each of DTP or Td and polio vaccines, and one dose each of measles, rubella, and mumps vaccines. "Last fall, we found that some parents had not kept proper records of their childrens' im- munizations, so a number of youngsters had to be re- immunized to remain in school," she said. Emphasizing the importance of immunization, Keys noted that in the event of a disease outbreak in a given school, children without proof of up-to-date immunizations would not be allowed to attend school until the danger was over. She pointed to the importance of full immunization for older Crook County Public Health Nurse Marilyn Keys said this week that immunization clinics have been scheduled in three towns in the county. The clinics will accommodate the needs of all ages of children and students. Clinics are being held in Moor- croft the first Friday of every month, in Sundance starting May 14 and continuing the second Wednesday of each month, and in Hulett starting in June. Nearly 84 percent of Crook county's school children age ten and under have met the require- ments of Wyoming's manatory immunization law, but an esti- mated 93 children still need one or more immunizations, accord- ing to the county public health n~'se. The immunization law, enacted by the State Legislature in 1979, requires that school children ten years of age and under provide documented proof that they have been immunized against polio, measles, rubella, mumps, dipt- theria, tetanus, and whooping cough. Waivers are provided for children on the basis of religion and sound medical reasons. Ms. Keys said a report com- piled recently by the State Divi- sion of Health and Medical Ser- vices shows that 476 children ten The 28th and 29th of April was spent in Torrington at the second annual Dow Chemical Western Regional Fly-in. This year the fly-in was composed of an eve- ning meeting on noxious weed control which included a lot of interesting and helpful informa- tion. Although I believe the in- formation obtained at the pattern testing and evaluation program held the next morning would be most interesting to landowners. Especially those of you used to using the Tordon 2G beads fi)r Canada thistle, Leafy spurge and other troublesome weeds. Most of you probably know by now that the Tordon beads are being remanufactered and will be called Tordon 2K pellets. The Pattern testing and evaluation program in Torrington was an excellent opportunity to see the new product. It was also the first time the new pellets were applied by commercial applicators. ~ far the new pellets look very pro- rnising. The manufacturing differences between the beads and pellets are as follows, first the pellets will Milton E. Green University Extension Agent, Crook County High interest and tight credit are the basis of many manage- rnent decisions Wyoming farmers and ranchers are making this spring. Farm prices are steady to lower in most cases and fuel, fertilizer, and other essential fac- tors of farming have skyrocketS. Cash flow has been an age old problem of farmers and ranchers because producers usually have a high percentage of their assets tied up in storage, machinery, etc. The young farm family is most vulnerable because of a large debt and little equity. The older farmer or the farmer that has an established operation and large equity will probably weather the recession in fair shape, This hour of agriculture doom need not be any worse than necessary. Sound management decisions will be the key to survival among many farmers and ranchers, young or old, new or established. Some good basic suggestions presented by Larry L. Bitney, Extension Economist. University IllI have a nitrogen base instead of Boron which is beneficial in two aspects, one: with the nitrogen base a hundred pounds per acre application of the pellets will also apply approximately 15 tx)unds of nitrogen [mr acre, which is a fair amount for range grass. Two: theoretically you should also re- ceive better control due to the fact that the nitrogen will enhance the uptake of the chelnical. So the nitrogen based pellets shouki be beneficial in all aspects. The only downfall I can per- ceive in the new 2K pellets is that they have to t)ackage them in 50 pound fiberpak drums due to the reason that the nitrogen carrier is soft and would powderize if they were packed in pal)er bags. It is unknown for sure right now but I believe the 2K pellets will result in weed control equal to or better than the beads. The actual pro- cessing procedure of the 2K pel- lets should hopefully have begun April 28th. Crook County Weed and Pest Control District Joe Bornkessel Supervisor May 7, 1980 in making financial decisions to avoid possible cash flow prob- lems. The cash flow sheet analyses expected income and expenses for the coming fiscal year. It will also show borrowing and repay- ment plans. The Income Statement deter- mines the amount and sources of net income. This is usually figured at the end of the year but is a valuable tool in making financial decisions throughout the fiscal year. 1. Consider the capital require- ments for a crop before estab- lishing a crop plan. 2. Evaluate capital purchases carefully. Answer questions like, "'Will custom hiring be better than machinery replacement?" 3. Carefully evaluate present inventories. Stockpiling will only be profitable if product supply is short and availability doubthtl, price increases appoaf to be higher than interest cost for the holding period, or cash discounts are greater than interest costs children, though state law re- quires protection against the seven childhood diseases only for children ten years of age and under. "A survey by the Division of Health and Medical Services in 1978 indicated that immunization levels for children in high school and junior high were notably lower than those for younger children," she said. "This is unfortunmte and presents a po- tentially dangerous situation since older children are exposed to the same risks presented by communicable diseases. The public health nurse said college students are welcome to participate in the clinics since immunizations are often manda- tory for college entrance. She asked that they see her during the ~heduled clinics whenever pos- sible, but added that they may make an appointment if another time is more convenient. Keys said detailed information on Crook county's immunization program and the requirements of the state immunization law are available from her office located at the old county shop building in Sundance; her telephone number is 283-1142. during the holding period prior to its use. 4. Always pay high interest loans first when receiving prompt payment for produced goods. 5. Be extremely carefull when considering the storage of holding marketable commodities. Interest cost may out weigh the expected price increase, Many producers have already taken these factors into consid- eration. Some of the suggestions will not work for every operation, but with the present financial situation in agriculture, any sug- gestion merits consideration. If producers would like to see financial systems models, they are available at the Crook County Extension Office. ESC gives labor force report Labor force in Crook County was up 1.9 percent in March, 1980, over the previous year. The number stood at 2,237 this year as compared to 2,196 a year ago. A total of 63 were reported unem- ployed for an unemployment rate of 2.8 percent as compared to 2.9 percent a year ago. Statewide the Employment Se- curity Commission (ESC) of Wy- oming reports March, 1980, pre- liminary estimates of 226,026 la- bor force and an unemployment rate of 3.9 percent. The March labor force was up over eight percent from that reported in March, 1979. The March unem- ployment rate compares with 4.1 percent in February and 2.9 per- cent in March, 1979. Xi Mu Chapter cites members Special recognition was given to Mary Perry, pledge of the year, and Debbie Cram, Girl of the Year, during the April 28 meeting of Xi Mu Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi with Arlene Mauch presiding. During the business meeting plans were made for the Mothers' Tea to be held May 10 at the Aro Restaurant from 1 to 3 p.m. Plans were also discussed for the end of the year party. A program on the Amish was given by Grace Kimsey and Bar- bara Mignery. Dolls, pictures, and magazines were passed a- mong the members. A white elephant silent auction Well, hello, finally from your state representative. I have been busy being a housewife, grand- mother and ranch hand for a few weeks. I have been doing quite a bit of side work but nothing too exciting as of yet. I attended the Nieman Sawmill meeting on the power plant and the possibility of a gasohol plant and have been working on the money for the feasibility study. We have formed a committee of the three sawmill owners, Jw Nuckolls and myself to try and get this money and get started on this very important plant. It has a great deal of possibilities and promise for development of our natural resources in this county. If we can get it started I am sure we will see many more such plants in other parts of the state especially in South Dakota. The timber industry is in deep trouble at this time and has many people laid off of work in Wyoming, South Dakota, and Colorado. My friends in the industry feel it is a very gloomy outlook at this time. It again will reflect right back to us the consumer and we will once again pay the price. I also have been attending the Black Hills Forest Planning com- mittee meetings along with Frank and Nels Smith. It is a very complex process and I still am concerned over how all of it will come out in the long run, but the public will have a chance to comment very soon. I was recently relected presi- dent of Outdoors Unlimited, Inc. for a second term and just re- turned from Denver where I at- tended a meeting on the Alaskan Lands Lockup and learned that we are over 80 percent dependent on foreign countries for minerals. We have an abundance of min- erals of all kinds being locked up in Alaska and Montana by wild- erness. It is scary to find we could have problems building defense vehicles if we should be shut off from getting these min- erals from Russia and other Com- munist countries, but we are not going to allow development of these minerals on our own lands. It is spooky to say the least. The State of Wyoming has once again received 601 Energy Impact Assistance Program monies. This money can be used for site ac- quisition and site development of public facilities and housing. If you are interested in these monies, Crook County is eligible to receive some and you can contact DEPAD {Department of Economic Planning and Develop- ment} for more details immedi- ately, to possibly be in line for next years monies as this years monies have already been allo- cated, but if this continues an- other year you might be eligible. Planning funds may still be avail- able. I will be going to Reno Nevada in June to represent Wyoming at the Public Lands Meeting of the Western States Conference of the Council of State Governments and give a report on Wyoming's Sage Brush Rebellion Bill. The State Forestery Advisory Board will be meeting in Crook County on May 20 and we will be touring some of the forestry in- dustries and timber projects on state lands on that day. We are trying to improve state lands and increase their output and income from the timber industry. This forestry division is also commit- ted to helping private landowners with their forestry problems and with tree marking and assistance. I have decided to run for re- election and have announced this week. I feel I can truly do this county justice and feel after two years of breaking in I can serve you fairly and justly with some working knowledge of our prob- lems and our needs. I hope to visit with more of you during the summer and listen to your prob- lems, and perhaps we can solve some of them. I have been very fortunate as a freshman legislator to have entered three bills and have them all passed. I had one bill co-sponsored with Bruce Mc- Million that we lost in the Senate the last three days. If I return, we will resubmit to correct the re- tirement statutes for Game and Fish personnel and Highway Pa- trol personnel ofter they retire. I also feel a personal victory over passage of the G Form Legislation as I was not the sponsor but did go to the Governor and suggested the Legislation by a past Live- stock Board member and helped very hard with its passage. It corrects the statutes and gives us the right to use the G Form if we use it properly and continue to watch the statutes. I also feel that at last the rest of the state finally knows where Crook County is and some of our needs, and that I am ready to fight for us first and foremost. I have developed a working relationship with the members of the Senate and the House and feel I can do a valuable job for Crook County. Until I get back from Reno---- Marlene was held following the meeting. Co-hostesses for the meeting were Charlotte Alexander and Beulah Lanning. Rod & Gun holds safety class Sundance Rod & Gun Club recently sponsored a hunter safe- ty class and "graduated" Todd Spencer, Sean Webb, Kyle Proct- or, Dick Proctor, Phillip Byrd, and Leon Jadlowski. Of the youths in the class, Webb scored the high- est with I00 percent and will receive a survival kit. Instructors who gave time to make the class possible included Don Denzin, Rich ~eedley, Joe Whittemore, Ed Mignery, Doug Ramsey, Noel Edwards, Lyle Brunson, and Bob Baxter. Spec- ial thanks was extended by the club to Chuck Durfee for present. ing the lesson on first aid. Upcoming club business, ac- cording to Mignery who serves as public relations officer, is the clean-up and repair day at the club's shooting range. Members are asked to be at the range at 9 a.m. May 10 with hammers and saws. Only an hour will be needed to complete the project, Mignery said, if enough members turn out. The clubs fishing derby will be held May 17 at the fairgrounds pond. Further details on the event will be armonnced in next week's paper. You know there's something very wrong with the economy when gas stations start keeping 'bankers' hours and banks start keeping gas station hours. A great deal of this country's troubles comes from legislators and lawmakers with too much bone in the head and not enough in the back. *WAR BIRII~ .ACFIOBA'nCs *CONl"lBll of Nebraska at Lincoln, may help producers improve their financial situation by using some basic , management tools.
