FSA's 2007 national compliance and spot-check review FSA is committed to delivering accurate program payment to America's agricultural producers. The accuracy of the payments not only benefits farmers and ranchers, but also maximizes taxpayer dollars and government efficiency. As part of the 2007 National Compliance Review, FSA's National Office is requiring local FSA county offices to conduct compliance reviews and spot checks of certain producers selected by the national office through a statistical sampling method. A statistical sample of FSA employees, County Committee (COC) and State Committee (STC) members have also been selected for review using this same process. If your operation has been selected for this review a representative of FSA will contact you and arrange an appointment to review your operation. FSA may review a producer's operations in multiple states and counties, depending on the scope of the producer's operations. FSA will review both the accuracy of the representations made by the selected producers in connection with participation in FSA programs as well as the producer's compliance with applicable program requirements. The reviews may need to be conducted at various times through the year depending on the FSA programs in which the producer is participating. No counter cyclical payment for wheat, barley or oats for 2007 The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 provides for Counter Cyclical (CC) payments for covered commodities and oilseeds beginning with crop years 2002 through 2007. Wheat, barley, and oats did not receive an advance CC payment. Final 2006 CC payment rates for wheat, barley, and oats are zero because their effective price exceeds their respective target prices. The effective price equals the direct payment rate, plus the higher of the national average loan rate or the national average farm price. For example, the target price for wheat was $3.92. To calculate the CC Wheat payment the higher of the national average farm price or the established loan rate is used, plus the amount of the direct payment producers received. This establishes the effective price. For 2006 the effective price for wheat was $4.78, which exceeds the target price established for wheat by $.86. In any year that the effective price exceeds the target price, counter cyclical payments are not issued for that crop.

Ohio has had some weird weather in recent years. Far too much rain, enough to cause serious flooding, droughts that last for weeks, even longer, storms that turn larger lakes and Lake Erie into mud holes. Such weather has caused many an area angler to lay down his or her fishing rods and decide to mow the grass. But there's no need to go to such extremes, because scattered around the northern half of our state are some top quality fishing holes that are always clear and fishable, have dandy walleyes, yellow perch, large and smallmouth bass, and nice panfish, and easy access. They call them upground reservoirs. I've fished a fair number within reasonable driving distance of home, and learned some techniques that provide good catches most days. They're very simple tactics. When planning to fish a new upground, my first step is to type in "Ohio Division of Wildlife" on my computer, then hit "Lake Maps." Many of the state's upgrounds are listed there, and the maps give not only directions and launch ramp locations, but placement of reefs, stump beds, and other fish attractors. Anglers who lack computers can stop in at any library, have a librarian show you (it takes seconds) how to use it, and check for maps. If a particular upground is not listed, you can often stop in at a sporting goods store or book store and get a large sized publication that lists 100 lake maps or whatever. A boat is the best way to fish any upground, so if you have a small boat or can borrow or buy one, that's the way to go, and since most upgrounds allow electric motors, use one of these, too. Now for the easy part. Purchase or make some Lindy rigs first, a simple rig consisting of a one ounce slip sinker, swivel to stop the sinker, and about two feet of monofilament line with a No. 6 or 4 hook on lines end. Add a head hooked nightcrawler or minnow to the rig, pick a spot near one of the reefs or other fish attractors, and drop the line to bottom. Then start drifting or slow trolling with your sinker just bumping occasionally, your bail open, and the rod tip held high.
