Disaster help available Nevada farmers and ranchers who suf- fered losses in this winter's storms, floods and slides can get emergency grants and loans through the Farm Service Agency (FSA) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The FSA programs include cost-sharing grants for restoring flood damaged land, and emer- gency loans to rebuild damaged or destroyed structures or replace losses to 1997 crops. The programs, administered through the Federal Emergency Management agency (FEMA), may help in replacing and repair- ing farm and ranch dwellings, said Warren M. Pugh, Jr., federal coordinating office for the disaster recovery effort. Jim Uhart of the Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Reno said that farmers and ranchers should apply immediately for help with their county FSA office. Cost sharing grants reimburse farmers for up to 64 percent of the cost of such things as repairing irrigation control structures and re- storing flood-damaged land. The loan program makes money available to replace losses to buildings (except dwell- ings) and losses to crops to have been har- vested in 1997. In addition to applying for FSA programs, farmers and ranchers with losses should call FEMA' s toll-free registration number, 1-800- 462-9029, to learn what other help may be available, Pugh said. Persons with speech or hearing impairments can call 1-800-462-7585 (TDD). New BLM rules Controversial proposed rules concerning criminal law enforcement by Bureau of Land Management personnel have caught the inter- est of the Amargosa Valley Chapter of People for the West ! Meeting in Amargosa Valley on Tuesday, the group voted to f invite a BLM representative to attend their February 5 meeting in Amargosa Valley to answer questions. People for the West! is a grassroots organizing cam- paign sponsored by a non- profit, nonpartisan group, the National Coalition for Public Lands and Natural Resources. There are 11 chapters in the state of Nevada. State chairman Liz Arnold said investigation into the ac- tual meaning of some of these new rules is still ongoing by many grassroots groups and congressional offices. She said under the new rules, BLM authority would be expanded be- yond activities occurring on BLM land. For more information regarding People for the West! activities, cad 372-1317.
