As governor, I will work to strengthen the real estate classifications for agricultural uses under Virginia law in order to ensure that bona fide farmers enjoy the benefits of this program. Regulatory changes, specifically the Chesapeake Bay Act, are changing the way farmers operate. Do you agree with the proposed resolutions of the Chesapeake Bay Local Assistance Board that agriculture must implement to reduce pollution in the Chesapeake Bay? WILDER: The Local Assistance Board is currently reviewing those regulations. I support a policy that protects the bay but does not restrict farmers unfairly, and I await the final decision of the board. COLEMAN: The Chesapeake Bay is a vital natural resource, and its environmental well-being is essential to our economy. We must continue efforts to rehabilitate and protect this precious resource for the use of future generations. These efforts will requir...

SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor PROSPECT — Volunteer firefighters not only provide fire protection to threefourths of the geological area of the United States; they form social anchors in the communities they serve. These are among the findings of Dr. Kenneth B. Perkins, who heads the sociology and anthropology department at Longwood College in Farmville and is a firefighter himself, and chaplain, with the rural Prospect Volunteer Fire Department. He has studied volunteers and volunteer fire departments extensively and published many articles on those subjects.

Oitebtff 198* Avian flu attack over RICHMOND — It appears a minor outbreak of avian influenza in the Shenandoah Valley this summer is over, according to State Veterinarian Dr. W.D. Miller. But Miller said no one in the animal health or poultry industries was letting down their guard. Miller said his department was closing up a few loopholes in testing procedures discovered after two Perdue Farms Inc. broiler flocks tested positive for avian flu in July. In addition, Secretary of Economic Development Curry Roberts ordered mandatory testing of all poultry flocks in proudly Made in the USA ALL STEEL - NO WOOD * * 20 YEAR WARRANTY * * Buy a USA Manufactured Product - Please help keep Americans Working • Clearspan — 100% useable space • Simple Fast Erection • All steel — 100% Maintenance Free 20x30 30x60 40x 100 25 x 40 35 x 70 40 x 200 30 x 50 35 x 100 Other Models Available Jfc 1-800-548-6871 luniversall universal Steel Buildings Make Your Plans Today For•i t MAGIC ORLANDO!

(Photo by Kathy B. Springiton) Farm worker shortage continues RICHMOND — A statewide unemployment level of just 3.2 percent in July may only aggravate an already serious farm labor shortage in Virginia. The farm worker shortage, which began when hiring illegal alien workers was banned under the 1986 Immigration Act, is most acute in northern Virginia, where unemployment levels are even lower than the state average. "Most of these people willing to work at hard labor want full-time employment plus benefits," said Carroll County cabbage grower Dale Akers. "We can't offer that. If we could, it would be great," he said. Many Virginia fruit growers this year are forced to turn to tobacco grower cooperativ...

October 1989 Fall is time to read The canning kettle has taken up permanent residence on our kitchen stove. The tomatoes are getting harder to find amid the weeds. The cucumbers that tasted so good back in June now sit in the refrigerator until they go limp. Yes, I've hit my annual gardening doldrums. If ever my husband were to convince me to live in an apartment without a yard, this would be the time of year he would have his best chance. Actually, I haven't abandoned gardening all together this month. I've simply switched from doing gardening to reading gardening. One of the more enjoyable books I Ve come across this year is John Kelly's "Foliage in Your Garden." Kelly is not a gardener who eschews all flowers in favor of foliage; rather he champions the thoughtful use of foliage plants to form an enduring framework for the flowering plants in your landscape, as well as a primary design element in their own right. This is a British book, but only a few of the plants Kelly mentions...

14 Virginia apples alluring for ages Warm days, cool nights and a rich deep soil nurtured by consistent rainfall make Virginia's climate ideal for growing many apple varieties. Virginia's apple harvest begins the last week in August and extends through early November. Summer varieties are harvested July through August. Virginia apples are grown in more than 300 commercial orchards, totaling more than 23,000 acres of land. Six popular apple varieties make up 90 percent of all apple trees grown in Virginia; Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Rome, Stayman, Winesap and York. Virginia apple country includes the mountainous region of the northern Shenandoah Valley through the Roanoke Valley, the rich countryside of Albemarle and Rappahannock counties and the southwest portion of the state. Virginia is the sixth largest apple producer in the nation with an average of 11 million bushels produced annually.

2 Workers' compensation: farmers should not forget it By B. MAYES MARKS, JR. In the early 1800s, Germany passed laws to provide railroad workers with remedial benefits should they become injured on the job. Not until nearly 100 years later did workers in the United States have similar workers' compensation protection. By 1920, all but eight states had adopted workers'compensation acts. Among those, the Virginia General Assembly passed the Virginia Workmen's Compensation Act on March 21,1918. The act went into effect on Jan. 1,1919. The growth and diversity of our labor force, arising from our state's strong economy, has caused the General Assembly to continue to study and improve the laws protecting the worker. The Code of Virginia now provides that any employer in our Commonwealth who has three or more regular employees in the same business is required to provide workers' compensation coverage at no cost to employees. The Virginia Supreme Court has ruled that the number of persons ...

10 Assessing garden helps in planning another As autumn draws to a close, it's time to clean up the garden for the winter. Among the chores are pulling spent crops, turning the soil or sowing winter cover crops, and mulching hardy vegetables to provide a winter harvest. But the most enjoyable "chore" for me is analyzing my successes and failures for the year, which is really a way of starting on next year's garden. This was a year of plenty in my gardenplenty of rain and plenty of bean beetles! The ample rain meant lots of lush growth, especially on my vine crops, but it also meant that many of the fruits rotted before they ripened. By midsummer, I was picking my tomatoes as soon as their color had broken, or begun to turn from green to pink. I grew Autumn Gold pumpkins and found them to be winners, producing loads of medium-sized fruits that turned orange early. Again, though, the dampness caused most of them to rot before their rinds cured, but I saved enough for jack-o-lan terns....
