If we can see our worth equal to or as good as others, we have half the battle won. So of, ten one with'low self-esteem sees themselves not worthy of anything better and so they are willing to settte-for less. This can be changed and each person has the power to change this by the way they talk to themselves. Remember, what you see about yourself, will determine how you will see others and the situation that you are in. Everything we view, is through the way we see ourself. The more positive we see ourself, the more positive we will see life in general. Now we don't have to live with the story of the facts that we were told about ourself, but we can change our thinking of ourself as someone worthy, as someone loveable, valuable, forgivable and a changeable person. We determine our own happiness by how we talk to ourself, nothing or no one else can make you happy, we have the power to become happy within ourself by the way we talk to ourself. Many times this will take the help of a trained counselor to help you see the steps that must be taken to become a happy person in life. A low self-esteem person will think that some future event will make them happy, or that it is someone else's fault for them not being happy. This is where so many of our young people get themselves into trouble by thinking that happiness comes through someone else and when that person fails them, they end up with a lower self-esteem and sometimes For Cottonwood County Attorney t or Continued experience and dedication to serve all of Cottonwood County I VOTE McDON/U D ON NOV. 6!

There is help, you don't have to suffer with low self- esteem, seek help from your Pastor, or a trained counselor. The issue of happiness is too important to be left alone and not dealt with. Secondly, no one can change the way we feel and think about yourself and about life, but yourself, Let's start, by thinking on only the good things in life. You can choose to be happy or keep living in misery, it all depends on how you see yourself and how you keep talking to yourself. Don't say that you can't change, for if you do, you won't be able to change. See yourself as a changeable person, one that begins to see yourself differently. We have the power to determine the difference in our own future, if we are willing to deal with what we feed our minds. Each of us has within ourself an undiscovered world of divine potential. The good news is that you don't have to stay the way you are. If it's huge & white, don't shoot If it is bigger than a Canada goose and is all white except for the feet and bill, don't shoot! Jol' Schladweifler, Nongame Wildlife Specialist for the Department of Natural Resources at New Ulm, urges" waterfowl hunters to be on the look-out for trumpeter swans during the 1990 waterfowl season. "It is conceivable that an inexperienced hunter might mistake a trumpeter swan for a goose," Schladweiler acknowledged, "although it's hard to do." Trumpeter swans, a protected species, weigh between 20 and 38 pounds and have six to eight-foot wing spans. Snow geese, which are also white in color, have black wing tip and weigh only four to six and one-half pounds. They have wing spans of only three and one- half feet. Additionally, most trumpeters have an orange tag on a wing or a yellow neck collar. Since 1986, the DNR has been involved in an effort to re- introduce trumpeter swans to Minnesota, an area where they were once common. Trumpeter swans have been released at locations in Minnesota the past four years and it is estimated there were slightly over 100 of the birds in Minnesota this summer. "The trumpeters will be on the move now as they begin migrating south," Schladweiler said. "We're asking hunters to be aware of them and to report any sightings. If possible, try to verify the tag number and please note the date and location of the sighting. We really depend on the public to help track the birds." Schladweiler also reminds hunters that there could also be Tundra swans movJ~g about in Minnesota. Tundras arc not quite as large as trumpeters but arc otherwise similar in appearance. Tundras, however, do not bear the ()range wing tags or yellow collars. Anyone who sees a trumpeter swan may report it by calling Schladweilcr at 507-359-6000 or contact an), area DNR office. Sightings can also be reported by calling the Section of Wildlife in St. Paul at 612-2%-3344. Snow Molds Don't put that lawn mower or rake into storage too soon. Lawns need to be mowed at their regular height as long as they cohtinue u) grow and heavy accumulations of tree leaves need to be raked up. If the lawn is allowed to grow too tall the leaf blades will mat down during the snowy weather creating good conditions for the development of snow mold fungi. Unraked leaves will mat down with the same result. Several groups of fungi cause snow molds, They, become apparent in the spring as the snow melts but may have been there all winter long. The most common are the gray and pink snow molds. They can bc distinguished by their symptoms and develop under slightly different conditions. Gray snow mold damage first appears when the snow is melting. Roughly circular patches 2 to 40 inches or more in diameter develop. These patches are straw colored and enlarge as long as the grass remains cold and wet from melting snow. The grass in the patches will have a matted appearance and may have a visible gray colored mold growth on the whole patch or just on the margins. Pink snow mold produces yellowish patches .several inches to a foot in diameter and also appears when the snow begins to melt. The patches will continue to enlarge as long as the weather is good and the grass is wet. The patches may take on a bleached appearance when dry or a faint pink color when wet. These two snow mold diseases do not occur every year but are most apt to occur in a year when an early or deep snow cover prevents the ground from freezing. A cold open winter like last year will not promote snow mold but may cause winter injury, with patches of grass dying because the crowns are killed by freezing and/or drying. Proper lawn management will reduce the danger of snow molds. Keep the lawn mowed this fall and rake up tree leaves. Avoid excessive fertilization especially in September. Next spring lightly rake any areas where snow molds ,are found to encourage dry ng. No chemicals are neces ry. SENTINEL & TRIBUNE Walnut Grove - Westbrook, MN - Wednesday, October 17, 1990 CRP Payments Much has been written in recent weeks about CRP rental payments, much of it contradictory, depending on where it was published or who was being quoted. The facts are these: * The Office of Management and Budget did .sequester the CRP program for FY 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 legislation to implement the budget agreement is law, and final FY 1991 appropriations are in place, full payment cannot be guaranteed. * PaymenLs cannot 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 20. 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 delay of these important payments and hopes to make 100% of payments due, possible as early as November 1.
