WALNUT GROVE -- Jon Boerboom, son of Bernard and Mariann Boerboom, Walnut Grove, and a junior at the Tracy High School this year, has the distinction of having qualified to attend the National 4-H Congress to be held in Chicago, December 1 to6. Jon, an eight year member of the Springdale Climbers 4-H Club, will be rewarded for his explicit attention to details on his 4-H records during his club membership career. He has carried through in health and safety in his projects and after winning first place in the local county, district, and state exhibits, in all competfion in his category he will attend the National Congress. His records are at the national level now for judging and if they are chosen to be first in the nation, he will be rewarded with a trip to Washington, D.C plus scholarship interviews. There are only six scholarships given out at the Chicago National Congress. Jon, only a junior in high school, is young to be advancing so far with his projects. Mosdy seniors in high school receive such honors, but Jon did get as far as runner-up in the state last year when he was a sophomore. Although he has worked more diligently in health and safety, he has also had projects in swine, bicycling, photography, and junior leadership. All the records from his entire 4-H career have been considered in his winning the state honors, and qualifying him to attend the National Congress. His projects are timely for the world at this time. In Health and Safety, he has given commodities to needy households in October, Commissioner Joe Samargia of the Minnesota Department of Jobs and Training and the remaining metropolitan counties in January. Each distribution serves about 42,000 families. Last year, EOO distributed commodities to approximately 140,000 low-income families through local organizations, such as Community Action Agencies, Indian reservation governments and human service agencies. Temporary assistance allotments for this area include: Lower Sioux Community Council - $544.00, Morton; Southwestern MN Opportunity Council - Worthington, $1,642; Western Community Action - Marshall, $2,008.

It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the nation. (It is the number one cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers.) The only way to know if a home has a high level of radon is to test for it. Testing is simple and inexpensive.

Sat Oct. 11 a.m. to I p.m. delay of these important payments and hopes to make 100% of received by the Cottonwood County ASCS is as follows: * OMB did sequester the CRP program for fmc al year 1991 (as it did in FY 1990, when no reduction was ultimately necessary because of excess carryover funds.) * Until the budget agreement was announced September 30, the possibility of a reduction was very real. In fact, until implements the budget a 'eement and final FY 1991 appropriations are in place, full payment cannot be guaranteed. * Payments could not be made on October 1, because we must wait for the final CRP appropriation to be enacted. We anticipate that this may occur about October 20th. Following enactment, the law requires that the funds be apportioned by OMB. While no problems are anticipated, we must deal with these procedural hurdles. * ASCS regrets the necessary school efforts. Students need to feel they can take risks and learn from their failures, instead of becoming discouraged. Often success or failure in school is more related to self-esteem than to high intelligence. Parents and teachers can focus on efforts, not just grades. They can be supportive, encourage truthfulness, and ignore the child's auger. It is very hard for someone who is discouraged and feeling inadequate to become to you. As the school I am available to you if you are your child.
