Counties eligible because they are contiguous to those listed above are: Allen, Ashland, Ashtabula, Carroll, Columbiana, Crawford, Cuyahoga, Defiance, Delaware, Erie, Fayette, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison, Henry, Huron, Lake, Mahoning, Mercer, Miami, Putnam, Richland, Seneca, Shelby, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas, Van Wert, Wayne, Williams and Wood. All counties listed above were designated natural disaster areas on July 20 making all qualified farm operators in the designated areas eligible for low-interest emergency loans from USDA's FSA, provided eligibility requirements are met. To qualify, farmers must be unable to obtain credit from commercial sources. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part or all of their actual losses. FSA will consider each loan application on its own merits, taking into account the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability. FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the emergency loan program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity. USDA has also made other programs available to assist farmers, including the Emergency Conservation Program, Federal Crop Insurance and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program. Interested farmers should contact their local FSA county office for further information on eligibility requirements and application procedures for these and other programs.

There's been a persistent rumor in recent years that fishing in Lake Huron has gone dramatically downhill, that the Michigan DNR has reduced stockings by 50 percent, and that alewives, the favorite food of salmon, have nearly disappeared. So, Buckeye anglers these days are mostly heading for the west coast to Ludington and thereabouts. I found it hard to believe that Lake Huron was dead or nearly so, so last week I drove up to find out.

akrause@norwalkreflector.com Local motorists weary of high gas prices have lower-cost alternatives. One, the electric car, takes gasoline entirely out of the equation. A second alternative is the scooter, which can get 75 miles per gallon of gas. You may not be able to travel long distances with electric cars, but you'll save money and be kinder to the environment, said Vic Staley, owner of North Central ZENN in New London.
