W1 JLr rarm Bureau Vol. 50, No. 6 Agriculture Technology Program is education with a twist By DR. REGINA SMICK-ATTISANO, Acting Assistant Director, Resident Instruction and STEPHANIE W. WHITE, Director of Undergraduate Recruitment How many high school graduates have vowed they were never going back to school? Usually students arc tired of seven hours of classes a day, tests, literature reviews and the normal grunt and grind. So why arc these same students enrolling in the Agriculture Icchnology Program at Virginia Tech? Because it's different! Virginia lech's Agriculture Icchnology Program offers an education with a twist. Two years of education lead to an associate degree. In traditional four-year programs, the first two years usually are devoted to classes that are not directly tied to a students' career goals. The Agriculture Technology Program, however, concentrates on specialized courses that focus on what students will need to be successful in their chosen career. Jeff Frit/, ...

2 Extension cluster proposal raises farmers' concerns A national seed company salesmen nearly convinced an eastern Virginia farmer that his company's new corn seed variety was the best available. He even showed the farmer graphics and test results that seemed to prove his claims. But after consulting with his county Extension agent, who had conducted his own variety trials, the farmer was surprised to learn that the company's seed was no better than three other varieties available for a lower price. Several counties away, an Extension agent helped a soybean grower calibrate his planting equipment on virtually a moment's notice because conditions were ripe for planting and spraying herbicides. Another day and it would have been too late to plant. That evening, while many farmers were still working, the county Extension agent represented peanut growers' interests during a controversial zoning plan at a board of supervisors meeting. Scenes like these have been commonplace across the Ol...

July 1991 Ninja Turtles, pig impostor attack forming Who would think a children's book and a fairground would be places for attacks on agriculture? Yet, the popular Teen-age Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon characters make a hardshell case against farmers in a children's book called "ABC's for a Better Planet," published by Random House Inc. And a woman in a pig costume shoved a cream pie in the face of lowa's pork queen May 31, during the Vforld Pork Expo at Des Moines, as part of a demonstration by the animal rights group People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. The children's book, on the Troll school book order list for summer reading and available in major bookstores and libraries, includes two scare-tactic messages about farming, notes the American Farm Bureau Federation. Under the section "M is for meat," the b(X)k says: "Some animals are injected with artificial hormones to make them grow faster. But some of these hormones cause cancer. A lot of the world's cereal crop ...

July 1991 Get involved in policy making The summer is flying by, and I am sure you have all been busy. The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation also has been busy with the start of the policy development process. I hope that your Young Farmers' committee is involved in setting policy in your county. This is a very important part of what Farm Bureau stands for, and, as agriculturalists, we need the lobbying power that we receive by being active Farm Bureau members. I can't stress enough how important it is to be involved on the county level. There are several new Young Farmer committees springing up across the state. We are excited about the renewed interest in the Young Farmer Program. We welcome as new county chairmen, Sandy and Ben Bryant Jr. of Southampton County, and Laurie and Howard Chandler of King and Queen County. These two committees are in the planning stages, so I encourage any neighboring counties with active Young Farmer committees to offer support and ideas. The organizati...

6 By TOM AND JOANNE 0 TOOLE Outdoor Journalists Hotel and motel fires around the world have taken thousands of lives —many of which could have been saved by the victims themselves. Panic and not knowing what to do are the major contributors to deaths in all types of situations. To be a survivor—or at least to tremendously increase your chances —you must know proper procedures. We can envision few things worse than waking, realizing there is potential danger, and being suddenly overwhelmed with panic. Too many people mistakenly think all they have to do is get out of the building. It's not that simple. Just ask someone who has had the horrifying experience of being in a fire. Seasoned travelers are perhaps more conscious of what they should do, yet anyone who books into any type of accommodation should have a check list and should go over it whether they are staying at a major hotel, a motel, an inn, or a bed and breakfast. Perhaps you'll find a number of points to add to your own li...

July 1991 Richman sees development encroaching like weeds By GREG HICKS VFBF Communications Director WOODSTOCK —As clear as the view of nearby Massanutten Mountain, John Richman can see the decline of agriculture unfolding in front of his very eyes. He doesn't like it, but there's little the lifelong Shenandoah County farmer can do about it-—except to keep farming. On board While development encroaches, the Richman farmstead remains the quintessential family farm, even though Richman is the only full-time operator. His four grown children help out, as does his wife Louise and some of their eight grandchildren. "I have to attend meetings in Richmond and my children work the farm when I'm gone," he explains. "Whoever is around when I'm gone is in charge," he says with a laugh. The Richmans raise beef cattle and grow hay, corn and small grains to feed the livestock on 300 acres in a picturesque setting between Massanutten Mountain to the east and the Shenandoah Mountains to the west.

8 Two-year school accepting students (Continued from Page 1) also receive comprehensive benefits packages which often include housing, use of a truck, and free farm or agribusiness products. Small classes an.- an important element in the Agriculture Technology Program. The average class size is 24, which permits extensive interaction between the faculty and students. Relationships that develop between faculty and students often last outside the classroom and into the professional career of the student. Good friends are also a result of the small class size. Jeff Fritz says, "I felt like I lost part of my family when I graduated from high school. The friends I made when I came into the Agriculture technology Program made me feel right at home." Other activities available outside of class are abundant. The Agriculture Technology Club is active on campus and sponsors an annual bachelor's auction, a ham sale and a livestock judging contest.

2 Can rights of individual and property be saved? It is a study of ironic contrasts to examine the revolution in Eastern Europe and compare it to the continued diminishment of private property rights in this country. On one hand, we have the Slovak peoples throwing off 40-plus years of centralist government, communal property and repression of the individual to embrace capitalism, private property rights and the sanctity of the individual. "Vfct, in our own country, we see a steady erosion of property rights and the worth of the individual. In their place we have exalted something known as the public trust doctrine. The public trust doctrine holds that all resources should be managed exclusively for the benefit of society at large. It is basically a socialist concept. It fails to realize that the right of individuals to own and manage private property for the highest economic good has been the bedrock of our economy for 200 years. The public trust doctrine leads to what has been cal...

August 1991 Dairymen get charter, chief RALEIGH —A 10-state organization to help Southeastern dairy farmers get better raw milk prices became a reality when the Southeast Dairy Farmers' Federation was chartered and a leader was named June 25.

A good Extension friend, B.J. Minton from Greene County, and I were laughing about things we used to do when we were children. Others at the table began to join us with their memories. I happened to be sitting by the editor from the Farm Bureau News, Kathy Springston. She and I looked at each other and all of a sudden the thought clicked. Why not do an article on what kids were up to yesterday? After interviewing young, middle-aged and elderly adults, I developed a good list. See if some of these things sound familiar to you. Maybe you can inspire today's young people to try some forgotten forms of fun. Here goes: • When the city cousins who were all girls came, they watched cows being milked and butter being churned, but they would not drink milk until it was put into bottles. I used to think t...
