FSALaunches New Microloan of up to $35,000 New and beginning farmers, returning veterans and disadvantaged producers now have an opportunity. Steven Maurer, the Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director announced that new and beginning farmers, returning veterans and disadvantaged producers interested in careers in farming now have an agricultural Microloan credit option to consider. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s FSA will offer applicants a Microloan designed to help farmers with credit needs of $35,000 or less. The loan features a streamlined application process built to fit the needs of new and smaller producers. "This innovative offering will be more customer-friendly than our larger, more traditional loan programs, said Maurer. "Farms seeking a smaller loan for start-up or operational needs now have a great new tool to think about." "For those selling at Farmers’ Markets or through

community-supported agriculture operations (CSAs), a Microloan might serve their needs perfectly," SED Maurer continued." "And the reduced

paperwork associated with the new Microloan will help expedite the process for everyone.” The new microloan program is aimed at bolstering the progress of producers through their start-up years by providing needed resources and helping to increase equity so that farmers may eventually graduate to commercial credit and expand their operations. Producers can apply for a maximum of $35,000 to pay for initial start-up expenses such as hoop houses to extend the growing season, essential tools, irrigation and annual

expenses such as seed, fertilizer, utilities, land rents, marketing, and distribution expenses. As their financing needs increase, applicants can apply for a regular operating loan up to the maximum amount of $300,000 or obtain financing from a commercial lender under FSA's Guaranteed Loan Program. USDA farm loans can be used to purchase land, livestock, equipment, feed, seed, and supplies, or be to construct buildings or make farm improvements. Small farmers often rely on credit cards or personal loans, which carry high interest rates and have less flexible payment schedules, to finance their operations. The microloan program will expand access to credit and provide a simple and flexible loan process for small operators. Producers interested in applying for a microloan should contact the FSA office at 807 NE Main St., West Union, 544-2033 or visit the Ohio FSA website at: www.fsa.usda.gov/oh.

On Wednesday, January 9, the Ohio Wildlife Council received potential dates for the upcoming fall hunting seasons, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The ODNR Division of Wildlife biologists proposed that several traditional hunting dates be utilized for 2013-2014. September 1, is the

proposed start date for Ohio’s fall squirrel and dove hunting seasons. Upland game hunting seasons for cottontail rabbit, ring-necked pheasant and bobwhite quail are proposed to start Nov. 1, the first Friday in November. Fox, raccoon, skunk, opossum and weasel hunting and trapping are proposed to start November 10.

ODNR Division of Wildlife biologists proposed that cottontail rabbit hunting restrictions be removed in the snowshoe hare protected area in Geauga and Ashtabula counties. Remaining snowshoe hares are still protected as a state-endangered species and it remains illegal to kill them in Ohio. SEE ODNR ON PAGE 2

Funding for Shawnee State Park Marina

The State Controlling Board approved the release of $2,303,860 for construction of the Shawnee State Park Marina Improvements Project in Scioto County, according to State Representative Terry Johnson (R-McDermott). According to documents from the Office of Budget and Management, as a result of the project and state assistance provided, the public marina will be renovated, including the replacement of floating docks, anchorage systems, dock utility services and other associated infrastructure. Current docks have deteriorated due to age and several sections are not able to

be securely reopened for public use next season. Improvements to modernize and allow for better access for the disabled will also be made to existing landside restrooms and the parking lot. “It's good that we are finally going to renovate Shawnee State Marina,” said Rep. Johnson. “With Shawnee State Forest and the Ohio River, we have premium natural resources in Southern Ohio and we must do all we can to encourage tourism, development, and jobs. I am also working hard to get much needed improvements done to the Holiday Point Marina in Franklin Furnace.

These key infrastructure improvements will do much to rejuvenate our recreational boating and tourism industries.” According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources parks Website, Shawnee Marina has 75 seasonal docks. Shawnee State Park is situated in the Appalachian foothills and spans 1,095 acres. It is located inside the Shawnee State Forest which has 63,000 acres and an 8,000 acre wilderness area.

Senior Living

Adams County Senior Citizens Civil War Quilt Challenge We are nearing the end of month of January. How many of those New Year’s resolutions have you broken already? Sure is easier to make them than to stick to them, isn’t it? We are all creatures of habit and it’s hard to make changes, even if they are for our benefit. The good news is, it’s never too late to make a new start! Begin today and refresh those resolutions, by taking stock of personal health habits, noting what you would like to improve. Even small changes will help you to feel better. Here are a few suggestions to help you get started: * Have an annual physical examination with your family doctor, especially if you are experiencing any unusual health problems now, before things become out of hand. Ask your doctor what you can safely change to improve your diet and overall fitness, then; * Begin or continue a regular exercise program. It doesn’t have to be strenuous. Try walking from one end of your home to the other, starting slowly and increase gradually. Be sure to check with your doctor before you begin any exercise that you may not be used to doing. * Improve your diet. Incorporate more fruits/vegetables and whole grains while cutting back on fats, sugar and salt. Again, small changes can make a big improvement. * Remember to reward yourself for any changes or improvements you notice. Chocolate cake doesn’t count as a reward! Make your reward a new article of clothing, a book you have been wanting, or some music from an old favorite singer or band you loved “back in the day”. With any luck, you would feel like dancing and that way, exercise even more! Take note: You may already have, or soon will be receiving your new Award

This week we are featuring an optional block of the Log Cabin. Folks still lived in log cabins during the civil war era and it was a popular quilt block to use up scraps. We used to have a wool log cabin quilt made out of old blankets and uniforms form the civil war. The "batting" was actually old newspapers. Eventually it deteiorated to the point we had to dispose of it. The block is assembled by cutting a red square for the center to represent the chimney/fireplace at the center of the log cabin. They you simply cut strips and add to the sides rotating, and always going in the same direction. The use of light fabrics on 2 adjoingin sides, and dark on the other two sides give the blocks a versatility for making designs with the blocks. Have fun as these can be made mini size for intersections in sashing or in borders or as a single block.

Dear Miss Needles Dear Miss Needles: Are the old crochet hooks made out of bones worth any money? What about ones made of ivory. Signed, Tired Dear Tired: I understand wanting to give up the crochet habbit. My wrist go numb after a few minutes of crocheting and my eye sight is not what it used to be. Obviously the antique ones that are made of Ivory have some value because they are real ivory. I have seen them average $10 each for common ones. Some that are carved on the ends bring more. The faux ivory run from $1 to $3

each. If they are part of a set or in the original case or package they are worth more. I have one that my great aunt used all the time that I keep just because it was hers. Good luck with collecting! Dear Miss Needles: What are those needles called that they used to issue in the leather wallet kits popular in the 1970's? I never did finish mine, but I would if I could find a needle. Sign me Itching to Stitch Dear Itching: Most of the kits came with a stitching needle, a harness needle and sometimes,

depending on the kit, sewing machine needles made specifically for leather. You can still get tem on-line, so good luck with your project. I made one in high school as a present for my brother and after tooling it for three weeks, it got stolen. I hope you finish your project. In fact, Miss Needles is challenging all readers to finish an unfinished project this year. Do you have a question for Miss Needles? Please email her at dearmissneedles@yahoo.com or write to her in care of The Informer.

Thinking Ahead to Tasty Summer Produce Are you experiencing a bit of the “winter blues” and finding yourself thinking ahead to the warmer days of spring and summer? Did the warmer weather we had this weekend get you started thinking about your summer garden? The Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Educator for Adams/Brown/Highland Counties, David Dugan, and I have been thinking ahead to all of that beautiful produce that comes along with spring and summer. We are brainstorming ideas for a combined Gardening and Food Preservation program. In the program, we intend to include a class on planning produce gardens and growing fruits and vegetables, as well as hands-on classes on food preservation (i.e. freezing, canning, and/or dehydrating). If you are interested in attending a combined Gardening and Food Preservation program, please call the Highland County Extension Office (937-393-1918). We will add your name to a list and contact you when we get a date scheduled for the program. When calling, we are asking that you specify the type(s) of food preservation practices in which are most interested (i.e. pressure canning, water bath can-

ning, freezing, drying, pickling, etc.) so we may better gear the class toward participants’ interests. While on the subject of fruits and vegetables, think to yourself, “Am I getting enough?” When we are busy, it is sometimes easy to “forget” to have fruits and/or vegetables at meals or in snacks. Fruits and vegetables provide our bod-

Politics & Government Teamwork Leading to New Jobs for Southern Ohio Treasurer Mandel Announces Further Payroll Reductions and Personnel Consolidation As the 129th General Assembly was drawing to a close last year, everyone was extremely busy staying on top of all the bills, votes, amendments, and interested party meetings. We were in a lame duck session, and it was rapidly drawing to a close. Few members had any spare time, and amidst that chaos, we received word that an employer in southern Ohio was having trouble with an unintended consequence of Ohio’s tax code and feared that they were going to have to move to Texas. They did not want to do this, and needed assistance to stay in our state. But the hour was late, both for their business plan and the legislative session, and prospects seemed dim. Nevertheless, I joined forces with other state representatives and worked to save these jobs and create hundreds of new ones. The company’s name is Ohio Precious Metals (OPM). They are based out of Jackson, and they take scrap metal from all over the country and refine it to almost to 100 percent purity. Virtually all the jewelry at Tiffany’s came through their factory in one form or another. There are only a few other companies in the America that can refine precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, and palladium with the quality and volume that they do. And on top of that, they were interested in purchasing the former Masco facility in Pike County and hiring a few hundred more people and expand their operation. The only thing standing in their way was a problem in Ohio’s tax laws that needed fixed if they were to stay and grow in Ohio. Given our state's tax burden, they were about to be forced to leave and

move to Texas. For me, and my fellow representatives, that was unacceptable. The way that our tax code was written, if the company stayed in Ohio, OPM's suppliers would have been savaged by the Commercial Activity Tax. Those scrap metal sellers from all over the nation would have had no choice but to sell their goods to refiners in other

Additionally, we sought and received the support of Speaker of the House Bill Batchelder who was a great help as we worked to make this last minute job deal a reality. There were many long hours working with OPM and the Ohio Department of Taxation, Guest Column but through a determination to save and create State Representative jobs, we found a way to fix the problem and get the Terry Johnson necessary legislative R-Ohio changes on the final day of session. This was vitally important because OPM had to put a non-refundstates -- states with more rea- able deposit on the Masco site sonable tax regulations.

Year-End Filing Figures for New Businesses Indicate Three Consecutive Years of Growth

Number of new businesses filing with state has increased 16.5 percent from 2009 to 2012. Secretary of State Jon Husted announced that 88,068 new entities filed to do business in Ohio in 2012. These numbers are up compared to 2011, in which 82,601 new entities filed with the Secretary of State. 2012 marks the third year in a row in which the number of new business filings surpassed that of the year before. “Ohio is heading in the right direction,” Secretary Husted said. “We should build upon these successes and continue to make our state the preferred location for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and create jobs.” The number of new business filings for December 2012 surpassed those from 2011. In total, 6,975 new entities filed to do business in Ohio in December of last year, compared to 6,463 in December 2011. Though the most visible

role of the Secretary of State is that of chief elections officer, the office is also the first stop for individuals or compa-

Saves Taxpayers $2.6 Million in First Two Years of Treasurer Administration Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel released an update on his efforts to streamline the Treasury and increase efficiencies, including a ten percent personnel reduction, declining payroll, and restructuring of the staff leadership team. After closing the books on two fiscal years in office, Treasurer Mandel has saved taxpayers $2.6 million. “In the Treasurer’s office we continue to build on the success of the 2011 Fiscal Year and Calendar Year TopBottom Reviews as we streamline operations, reduce payroll and consolidate personnel. These efforts allowed us to save taxpayers $2.6 million in our operating budget after two fiscal years,” said Treasurer Mandel. “I am proud of our accomplishments in the first two years in office, and of the team of professionals that we have in place to protect and invest Ohio taxpayer dollars. We have found

ways to tighten our belt, leverage technology and do more with less while continuing to provide great service to Ohio taxpayers.” The Treasurer’s office payroll in the upcoming budget biennium will continue to decline, as a result of a ten percent personnel reduction from 140 budgeted positions under the prior administration to 126 Guest Column budgeted positions Josh Mandel under Treasurer (R)-Ohio Mandel. Budgeted State Treasurer payroll in the Treasurer’s office has declined as follows: Fiscal Years 2010-2011 - $12 million under Treasurer Boyce Fiscal Years 2012-2013 - $10.8 million under Treasurer Mandel Fiscal Years 2014-2015 - $10.4 million under Treasurer Mandel After the books closed on the 2011 and 2012 Fiscal Years, the actual savings generated on behalf of taxpayers was $895,000 and $1,772,000 respectively, a total of more than $2.6 million.

Don't Give Special Tax Breaks To Big Banks In Foreclosure Settlement Deal Brown Urges Federal Regulators, Department of Justice to Prevent Financial Companies from Taking Tax Deductions as Part of Their Legal Settlements At an event today at Community Housing Solutions with Ohioans who were unlawfully foreclosed on, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released a letter to federal regulators urging them to cancel tax breaks for big banks involved in the settlement deal on unlawful foreclosures. Earlier this month, a preliminary settlement was reached requiring 10 financial institutions to pay $8.5 billion to homeowners who

were hurt by the mortgage crisis through unlawful foreclosures or mortgage servicing abuses. Despite the harm these financial institutions have inflicted on American

Senator S h e r r o Brown D-Ohio

homeowners and the economy, they are able to deduct from their taxes costs associated with settlement payments. “It’s unacceptable that these Wall Street banks can

write off these mortgage settlements, shifting the cost to taxpayers. Banks that take a family’s home because of errors or fraud should not get a tax deduction and a slap on the wrist. Breaking the law should not be a business expense.” Brown sent a letter d today to the federal banking regulators and the U.S. Department of Justice urging them to prevent financial companies from claiming expenses related to legal settlements as tax deductions. Under current law, companies are able to take advantage of tax rules to deduct from their federal taxes the full value of any settlement payouts.

4-H members from across Ohio will join together on January 19 to travel to Washington D.C. to experience an exciting time in our nation’s history. During this four-day trip, 4-H’ers will have the opportunity to tour national monuments and museums; participate in educational programs focused on government and history; and attend the 57th Presidential Inauguration on January 21. Participants on the trip will stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Carolyn Belczyk, Extension Educator, 4H Youth Development in Adams County and one of the trip planners shares, “The Inauguration is a perfect time to spark a youth’s interest in government and history. What better way to learn about these topics than to take a road trip and live them?” Two buses will take the 4H members to Washington D.C. One will be leaving from the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center in Columbus. The other will be leaving from Cleveland. Karlie Harper, the daughter of Brent and Mary Harper, Stout and a member of Adams County’s Friends Helping Friends 4-H Club, will be participating on the trip along with several 4-H’ers from Pike and Scioto counties. A portion of her fees were paid by the Adams County 4-H Advisory Committee. Belczyk will be one of several trip chaperones. Generous sponsors helped reduce the cost of the trip. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District and PNC Bank supplied the funds necessary to pay for the bus from Cuyahoga County. Funding from the Ohio 4-H Foundation’s Sam Cashman Family 4-H Endowment and the Richard B. and Nancy E. Stahl

Family 4-H Endowment helped defray trip expenses for the entire delegation. Inauguration history will be one topic highlighted on the trip. According to the official Inauguration website, the first Inauguration of George Washington was in April 1789, in front of New York's Federal Hall. The first Inauguration to take place in Washington D.C. was that of Thomas Jefferson in 1801. Interestingly, Jefferson was staying at a boarding house near the Capitol Building. He walked to the Capitol, took the oath of office, delivered his Inauguration Address, and then returned to the boarding house for dinner. The Inauguration Day has changed much in our history. A day-long series of events makes up current Inauguration traditions. A morning worship service, swearing in ceremonies, an inaugural lunch, parade, and ball are all part of the festivities. While in Washington D.C., Ohio’s 4-H’ers will have the opportunity to get to know each other through activities planned by trip organizers. A day of sight-seeing and a twilight tour of monuments and memorials will highlight Sunday. On Monday, members will have the chance to watch the swearing in ceremony. A special Inauguration Ball just for the Ohio 4-H members will be held Monday evening at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center. 4-H is a non-formal educational, youth development program offered to young people age 5 and in kindergarten to age 19. Youth can participate in 4-H through clubs, camps, schools, and short-term experiences. Members develop life skills while taking one or projects annually to learn about animals, computers, public speaking,

Karlie Harper cooking, art, gardening, environmental sciences, and much more. According to the Ohio 4H Program, “All 4-H programs focus on active involvement and quality experiences which stimulate lifelong learning of values and skills.” This experience is being planned by a team of Ohio 4-H professionals including Robin Stone, Program Coordinator, 4H Youth Advisory Committee of Cuyahoga County; Carolyn Belczyk, Extension Educator, 4H, Adams County, and Nadine Fogt, Extension Educator, 4-H, Fayette County. Christy Clary, a Purdue graduate student and former Citizenship Washington Focus Program Assistant has also been assisting in planning the trip. Support is also being provided by Doug Swanson, National 4-H Program Leader, and Maria McNeely, National 4H Youth Program Opportunities Manager. Extension 4-H professionals traveling with the group include Annie Davis, Logan County, Dr. Theresa Ferrari, State 4-H Office, Mark Light, Hardin County, Christy Millhouse, Preble County, and Jo Williams, Scioto County.
