Springston) State Fair visitors step into the past RICHMOND — The newest exhibit at this year's State Fair of Virginia was the Yesteryear Arcade, a strip of reproduced small town storefronts typical of the 1880s through the 19205. "We took down 100-year-old buildings and brought the wood up here, including doors and windows and all," said J. Linwood "Heck" Rice, the fair's American Heritage Village director. "We start off with a country store, which is completely furnished. Next, we have a hardware store, then early inventions and a reproduction doctor's office complete with a castor-oil dispenser," he said. Facing the storefronts were small kiosks in which costumed volunteers demonstrate skills of the period such as butter churning and beeswa...

2 Farmers seek sound crop insurance plan In 1986, one of Virginia's worst drought years this century, 94 counties were declared federal disaster areas, and a whopping $12.7 million was paid out to cover those crop losses. Meanwhile, hundreds of other Virginia farmers, who were in drought situations as well, were ineligible for coverage because most of their respective counties had ample rains and were not considered disaster areas. These farmers were left without money to cover their losses of corn, soybeans, peanuts and other staples. In addition, many Virginia farmers were forced to sell cattle early because they had no feed for their livestock. Already this year, Georgia farmers face astronomical crop losses due to drought. Farm Bureau estimates production losses at over $342 million in Georgia alone and farm officials have called on state and federal authorities to come to the aid of Georgia's drought-stricken farmers. Other Southern states are in similar straits. Nationally, ta...

4 The wall: Farm Bureau members remember By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor On Oct. 3, about 78 million Germans became one after 45 years of division. After the wall was opened Nov. 16,1989, Farm Bureau member W. S. "Steve" Richardson Jr. dusted off a large, framed photograph he took in August 1962 of a bricked up East German church towering over the 10-foot Berlin Wall. He shot the picture on a People-to-People trip a group of Farm Bureau members made to West Germany, a year after the wall went up and a fortified border through the middle of Germany was established. But there was another piece of memorabilia Richardson wanted to look at again. He searched with determination for a yellowed copy of a thought-provoking Christmas editorial that accompanied his photo in the December 1962 issue of the Farm Bureau News. The words of then editor Ron Nowland, written just 15 months after the wall was Excerpts from 'A mighty fortress' recalled Written in 1962 by RON NOWLAND I don't recall wh...

6 The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation surveyed Virginia candidates in the Nov. 6 Congressional election on some key issues affecting agriculture, rural residents and all Virginians. Thirty-four of the nation's 100 U.S. Senate seats and all 435 U.S. House of Representatives seats are to be filled this fall. Senators' terms are four years, and congressmen's terms are two years. Republican Sen. John W. Warner, seeking a third term, is opposed by independent Nancy Spannaus. All but two of the 10 incumbent congressmen face challengers. Those races are as follows: • Rep. Herbert H. "Herb" Bateman, R-lst, vs Democrat Andrew "Andy" Fox. • Rep. Owen B. Pickett, D-2nd, vs Independent Harry G. Broskie. • Rep. Thomas J.

It must have: (A) hydrophytic vegetation, (B) hydric soils, and (C) wetland hydrology. Further, it requires the USDA to delineate wetlands on a map and make a reasonable effort to make an on-site wetland determination whenever requested by the owner. The U.S.D.A. must also provide notice to affected owners to provide the opportunity for them to appeal the certification. I support these measures which are designed to protect farmers from having their land arbitrarily declared as wetland. Gerald E. "Laser" Berg Independent Challenger 1.

Those who want to preserve wetlands should buy them, as The Nature Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited does, so that they have a definite economic interest in what happens there. Private owners are much better stewards of the land than politicians. There are better ways to preserve the environment. Instead of agency regulation, government should strictly enforce trespass and nuisance laws, which prohibit anyone from polluting waterways or groundwater. This includes farmers, industrialists, and anyone else who uses chemicals. We have to be careful.

10 New books are winter's garden supplies It's time to stock up on winter gardening supplies. I recommend a selection of good coffees and teas, a cozy afghan in colors which hide coffee stains, lots of chocolate chip cookies to munch on while working, and enough gardening books to keep you reading through February. First on my list this year is Garden Tales, an anthology of garden literature illustrated with photos by Jane Gottlieb. My favorite story was Nathanial Hawthorne's "Rappaccini's Daughter", a chilling story set in a lush garden. The remaining stories repeat that theme — great literature written by great gardeners. The accompanying photos are lovely, but don't really reflect the stories they illustrate. Still, Garden Tales would make a great gift for any literary gardener you know, or yourself. (Viking Press, $12.95) American Garden Writing, edited by Bonnie Marranca, is another book of, obviously, garden writing, but this one has a nonfiction bent. It is crammed full of le...

—— ——— Vol. 49, No. 11 New VFBF group gets feet wet in aquaculture By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director RICHMOND—The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has broadened its representation from dairy barns, soybean fields and beef operations to farm ponds and the Chesapeake Bay. Oct. 2 marked the official beginning of Farm Bureau's new Aquaculture Commodity Committee, an eight-member board made up of Virginia fish farmers, retailers, wholesalers and commercial watermen. "Well do what all other committees dosurface problems and help lobby the General Assembly to solve them," said committee chairman Elvin R. Custis, a VFBF board member from Accomack County. The committee will monitor issues pertaining to the catfish, hybrid striped bass, softshell crab, oyster and rainbow trout industries in Virginia These include both farmraised products and wild-grown seafood found in the estuaries of Eastern Virginia.

2 Gather berries now for shrubs and trees tomorrow Autumn is a tantalizing season. Shrubs and trees everywhere are covered with glistening red, blue and black berries, all bursting with the potential of growing into a new plant. I can't resist that promise, and always gather some to plant in my garden. (I do always gather, but I must admit that I don't always plant. My seed collection is always growing.) It is not difficult to grow shrubs and even trees from seeds gathered from neighbors' yards or nearby woods. It does take some time to get sizable plants, but the cost can't be beat. I can't afford the $75 that the local nursery asks for a Japanese Maple, but I do have time to spend. Besides time, all you need are a few pots, seed-starting soil or a garden seedbed, and some space in which to grow the young plants. And, of course, a handful of seeds. Gather the seeds and berries as soon as they ripen. Start watching for them in summer. Maples will drop their spinning helicopters long...

4 Farm Woman of Year post an obligation Editor's Note: In observation of November as Virginia Farm Women's Month, freelance writer Lorraine Blackwell of Richmond explores the role of women in agriculture today through VFBF 1989 Farm Womanofthe Year Carol McComb's insights. At the VFBF Convention this month, Mrs. McComb turns her responsibilities over to a farm woman for 1990. By LORRAINE BLACKWELL Special to Farm Bureau News Being the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Farm Woman of the Year is not just holding a title, it is an obligation. "It's just not a plaque to hang on the wall," said Carol S. McComb, who was named the 1989 Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Woman of the Year. "It's an obligation to the fellow members of the Virginia Farm Bureau and the American Farm Bureau Federation to help promote what Farm Bureau is all about," she said in a recent telephone interview.
