8 Water tests Resolution results in pilot project By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor Six local Farm Bureaus are participating in a pilot water testing project and plan to distribute the do-it-yourself collection kits this month. Accomack, Northampton and Caroline counties and Virginia Beach are offering the testing for Farm Bureau members, while Augusta and Rockingham counties' trial project will include the general public. The basic kit cost $15 and includes eight tests. They evaluate nitrate, nitrite, ammonia nitrogen, sulfates, soluable phosphorus, silica and specific conductivity levels. Farm Bureau's project is designed for private well or spring water. Health departments test public water supplies, but a resident who wanted to pay to test city or town tap water could do so through the participating Farm Bureaus. Four chemical tests—for Atrazine, Lasso or Dual, Tfemik and Ridomil—also are offered The cost is $15 for the first chemical test and $10 for each additional test. 'The...

Farm Bureau Vol. 49, No. 12 Two ag leaders retiring I Carbaugh leaves commissioner post RICHMOND—S. Mason Carbaugh retires Dec. 31 after more than 18 years as Virginia's top agriculture official and 30 years of continuous service with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Although he would like to leave office at the end of the year, he has agreed to stay in the $79,000-a---year post until a successor is named by Gov. L. Douglas Wilder. The board of directors of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has endorsed H. Earl Longest, Dr. Berkwood M. Farmer and Dr. Clinton V. Tbrner as candidates for commissioner of the department.

2 VFBF legislative priorities set for 1991 ROANOKE—Putting the grassroots system to work, county delegates to the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Convention Nov. 26-29 took a stand on 137 issues affecting farming, rural communities, the organization or the quality of life in Virginia in general. Farm Bureau, which represents 35,000 Virginia farmers, will lobby to the General Assembly for many of those concerns. The following are legislative priority issues adopted for 1991: Child labor Farming remains a family affair in Virginia. Parents depend on their offspring for much of the labor on the farm. This has worked well from generation to generation and it helps develop a strong family fabric. The experience children gain on the farm is vital to their own successes if and when they inherit the operation. Therefore, we oppose any new governmental regulations on farm family labor. We support the following federal guidelines: • Children under age 16 cannot be employed during school hours...

December 1990/ January 1991 Insurance commercials reach non-farmers, too Farm Bureau Insurance is again "on the air" with three new television commercials. These spots are part of the third tier of the corporate marketing and advertising strategy. That strategy, initially concentrated with informing the public at large who Farm Bureau is and what we offer, now is to promote the actual services and products available. A 14-man film crew of cinematographers, grips, a director and agency personnel filmed over a two-week period to get the necessary footage for the spots. "The weather was hot and the hours were long, but as you will notice when when you watch the spots, it was all well worth it," said Len Philpot, director of account services for Ken Juneau & Associates Inc. of Alexandria, La. That firm created the television ads. "And you dont even have to be a farmer... just smart." These commercials are designed to increase awareness in non-rural areas that Farm Bureau pro...
