Carr enjoys visiting her former home and retelling Suffolk's history. Member grew up with Suffolk Nstory By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor SUFFOLK—'Home" to associate Farm Bureau member Mary Withers Carr, 82, is the 20-room brick house where she grew up hearing stories about its occupation by the Yankees during the Civil War. Riddick's Folly, as the stately house on Suffolk's North Main Street is known, was built beginning in 1837 by the influential Mills Riddick, owner of a lumber company. In 1839, Riddick, his wife and 12 children moved into the home, which housed his descendants for 130 years and today is a museum. Mrs. Carr, a great-granddaughter of Mary Taylor and Mills Riddick, says she still gets a Rebel chill thinking that the house was taken over by Union Gen. John J....

6 Virginia Farm Bureau wins six Gold Stars By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor ORLANDO—The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation brought home a star-studded plaque for accomplishments in six areas from an awards program at the American Farm Bureau Federation Convention. One star stands for VFBF's success in meeting the 1989 membership quota set for the state by AFBF, which is required for a state to be eligible for a plaque of stars. The other five stars represent Gold Star awards for achievements in commodity activities, the Women's program, the Young Farmer program state and local government affairs and Ag in the Classroom. A panel of eight judges reviews lengthy reports, newspaper clips and other examples of program effectiveness in deciding the winners of gold stars. VFBF President C. Wayne Ashworth displayed the plaque at a banquet for Virginia attendees Jan. 10 and thanked county members, staff and others who worked to bring membership up and provide quality programs. Ashworth said h...

8 Who'll say food is organically grown? By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND—State officials appear to be leaning toward private certification of organic foods in Virginia, instead of a state certification program. "It appears at this point that the more likely approach... would be to have some minimum standards established by statute and then to allow private, thirdparty certifiers to actually do the certification," explained Mark Htbbs, director of policy analysis and development at the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members agree there's a need for some organic certification program for fruits and vegetables to protect public interest, but believe it would best be handled by private industry, not the state. "We wonder if... this is the proper role for the state to play," said Wayne Ashworth, VFBF president, who worries that a state certification program might imply that non-organic foods are less safe Chemical disposal...

February 1990 Bean Derby Award winning seeds promise to please Seed catalogs have been showing up in my mailbox for more than a month now. I peruse each one with pleasure, keeping an eye out for new vegetable and flower varieties I ti like to try in my garden this year. I'm a bit short on space, so I like to pick those that look like sure-bets. This means that I'm bound to pick a few All-America Selections award winners. AAS award winners are sure to be winners in my garden, and yours, too They have been grown and judged in gardens throughout the country. If a variety wins an AAS award it has proven to do well under many diverse conditions, including all known to Virginia. This year there are award winners to suit every taste—some in vegetables, some in annual flowers, and even a perennial. Let's look at the veggies first. Last year AAS introduced pepper Mexi Bell which had a little heat but could be tamed by removing the seeds and inner ribs. This year we have Super Cayennehot, hot...

10 Tax laws for state and nation change this year (Continued from Page 9) Self Employment Tkx: The maximum net income on which Self Employment T&x is assessed (in combination with FICA wages) is increased to $51,300 (from $48,000) and the rate goes up to 15.3 percent (from 13.02 percent). However, starting in 1990, one-half of Self Employment tax is allowed as a business deduction. Personal Interest: Personal interest paid in 1989 is only 20 percent deductible (down from 40 percent for 1988). For 1990 only 10 percent of personal interest is deductible and in 1991 the deduction will be eliminated entirely. Personal residence mortgage and equity line interest remains fully deductible for both first and second residences. Exemptions: You are allowed a $2,000 deduction for each 1989 exemption you are entitled to claim (up from $1,950 in 1988).

Farm Bureau Vol. 49, No. 3 Wilder discusses state economy, rural needs By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND-Gov. L. Douglas Wilder expressed optimism Jan. 24 that there soon may be money for needed construction programs for Virginia farmers, although he didn't say when. "I'm not pessimistic," he said during the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 6th Annual Farm-City Festival reception for legislators and government officials. 'The economy has taken a dip nationally, and hopefully, it will spiral upward soon," he said. At the same time, Wilder called for conservative fiscal policy in state government, noting that no one is sure yet where the money will come from to meet budget needs in 1991. But he supports the Virginia Farmers' Market system and wants to provide for more sites soon. "I'm strongly pushing for farmers' markets now," Wilder said.

2 Virginia's land-use taxing program safe for now A dairyman in Loudoun County is surrounded by modern, suburban housing developments, but he continues to operate his dairy because it's all he's ever done for a living. Meanwhile, a corn, soybean and wheat grower in Virginia Beach must fight rush- hour traffic when he leaves his farm in the morning or late afternoon, but he continues to raise grain because it's his livelihood. His father farmed that same land. So did his grandfather. Scenes like these are becoming more commonplace, not only in rapidly developing urban areas around Richmond, Washington, and Hampton Roads, but in smaller metro areas like Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Lynchburg and Harrisonburg. It's sad, really, when you realize that once this land is paved over, it's gone forever. It will never serve as farmland again. That's why Farm Bureau has worked so hard to protect Virginia's land-use taxation program. Enacted in 1971 with the help of the Virginia Farm Bureau...

6 On board: Davis sees beyond the hills of home By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Ecfitor BROOKNEAL-John Phillip "J.P" Davis Jr. can stand on the hill where he and his wife have a comfortable home and see productive, rolling land all around. His Campbell County farm is the kind of quiet, peaceful retreat that can make a person forget the rest of the world and never want to leave But Davis, who is serving his fifth year on the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Board of Directors, is ever mindful of what's going on beyond the farm, within Farm Bureau, around the state and on Capitol Hill. And often that means finding someone else to feed the cows when there are meetings and business trips that take him away from home. "The most important thing to all of our members is our contact with our legislators. The benefits are immeasurable," he said. "And I see Farm Bureau as being the main spokesman for farmers in the foreseeable future." Davis joined Farm Bureau in the early 1950s when producers ral...

March 1990 Humorist says, 'Take time for family on climb to success' By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF EcStor ROANOKE—Young farm couples on their way to success need to share feelings, warm words, hugs, time with their kids and laughter to get there with families intact. And the belly-laughs were abundant Jan. 27, as Dr. Charles Petty made that point at the 1990 Young Farmers Conference in his speech, "Climbing the Ladder of Success and Taking Your Family With You." Petty, who grew up on a cotton, rice and soybean farm in Arkansas, is a humorist and president of Success Unlimited, a counseling and speech service in Raleigh, N.C. He noted that 90 percent of Americans marry, and 62 percent stay married until one partner dies. Half of all marriages end in divorce, but that's not half of all people, said Petty. For instance, a 29-year-old woman at a banker's convention told him she'd been married and divorced seven times—to the same person. "See, she got more than her share... She's kicking t...

10 Legislation Land-use tax program is saved By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND—Farmers across Virginia are sighing in relief after a bill that would have gutted the land-use taxation program was defeated in subcommittee Jan. 31. 'This bill would have had a dramatic impact on a lot 0f... farmers and landowners in Suffolk," noted Jesse Williams, a Suffolk farmer and Farm Bureau member. Even the bill's sponsor, Del. Sam Glascock, D-Suffolk, admitted the bill could have caused more problems than it solved. He told a House finance subcommittee it was introduced to reduce uncontrolled growth in Suffolk, but later asked that it be killed. Under the land-use program, localities can decide to assess agricultural land at less than the market value for land used for housing or industry. Glascock's proposal was to assess farmland between other uses at the same value rate, thus increasing the farmer's taxes. A farm's taxes would have been "even greater than the income generated by the part...
